Full Moon 23 November 2018 – Temper Temper!

by Astrology King

“The full moon on Friday November 23, 2018 at 0° Gemini in the Pleiades Star Cluster. The Full Moon November 2018 astrology is also influenced by the planetary aspect Mars square Jupiter. This can make you feel strong, brave and sexy but also angry and frustrated. The danger is that impulsive and reckless actions could lead to accidents or injuries.

The November 2018 full moon in the Pleiades increases the risk of losing your temper and becoming cruel and ruthless. The keys to avoiding pain, loss and sorrow are patience and forethought. While irritation and frustration may prove difficult to avoid, you can release the hot full moon energy safely using self-control and moderation.

Full Moon Meaning

A full moon occurs when the Sun is opposite the Moon. This highlights opposing forces or polarities in your life such as your work versus home, or what you need versus what you want. Inner tension and external pressures can lead to personal conflict and crises that drain your energy. Your home, family and intimate relationships comes into sharper focus following a full moon.

The lunar qualities of emotions and instincts reach their peak at a full moon. Use you increased emotional strength and intuition to overcome any relationship challenges. Subconscious awareness allows for an impartial and balanced look at your personal relationships. You will clearly see any relationship dynamics or negative feelings causing disharmony.`

A full moon has a relationship to the previous new moon. Your November 7 new moon goals can now be fine-tuned or completed, it is harvest time. You can make emotional adjustments in response to those new goals. Full moon November 2018 lasts for two weeks up to the December 7 new moon.

The November 23 full moon has a nasty feel to it because of the planetary aspects and fixed stars. The full moon square Mars brings bitterness and anger for the next two weeks. An opposition to Jupiter amplifies this confrontational energy.

The Moon at 00°52′ Gemini Sign is on the same degree as Alcyone, the central star of the Pleiades Star Cluster. The Pleiades bring love and peace when well placed. However, square Mars and opposite the Sun and Jupiter is far from being well placed.

Full Moon Aspects

Full Moon square Mars brings simmering anger to the surface so take care to avoid being hurt or causing harm. There is danger when taking risks or acting impulsively. However, holding in anger and frustration is not healthy either. Repressed anger can manifest physically as pain in your body, accidents, aggressive reactions in others, or as conflict in your home. There will probably be some degree of emotional discomfort in close relationships, especially with women.

They key to handling this quick and hot energy is to release your frustrations in a controlled way. If you have annoyed someone else, don’t be overly defensive or mean when they share their feelings with you. Cuts or burns, especially in the kitchen, would suggest you have not dealt with your emotional troubles. Face what is making you feel threatened with courage. Emotional attacks from others are just as likely as you losing your temper with a loved one.

Full Moon November 2018 Astrology

Moon opposite Jupiter is likely to cause lack self-control and unwanted attention. It can make you less guarded about your feelings and private life, which can leave you vulnerable to interfering mothers, moral crusaders and even the public. This full moon will be more problematic if you already have difficulty with self-control or addiction. You may react to others people’s possessive or jealous behaviour by subconsciously falling into negative habits and behaviors.

Mars square Jupiter can make you feel energetic and sexy but can also make you impulsive and tactless. It gives the courage to take on adversaries if you feel threatened but a defensive approach is best. This is not a good full moon for going on the attack, especially without provocation. Without forethought and strategy, rash actions could lead to embarrassment, accidents or injuries. Finally, moderate your energy output to avoid physical or emotional exhaustion.

Fixed star Alcyone at 00  15 is the main star of the Pleiades in Taurus Constellation. It has a strongly feminine influence and its rising has always been linked to homosexuality in men:

They adopt feminine dress, footwear donned not for wear but for show, and an affected effeminate gait. They are ashamed of their sex; in their hearts dwells a senseless passion for display, and they boast of their malady, which they call a virtue. To give their love is never enough, they will also want their love to be seen. [1]

If well-connected, the Pleiades bring love and eminence, making people ambitious, optimistic and peaceful. They give many journeys and voyages, success in agriculture and through active intelligence. [2] They are especially indicative of events that affect the family and family life. [3]  The Pleiades can raise people to high position with preferment, honor and glory. [4] Even if ‘afflicted’, they make for an excellent counselor to others in the time of bereavement. [5]

However, the full moon conjunct Alcyone is not well-connected. Ptolemy assigned the planetary nature of the Moon and Mars to Alcyone, just like the tempestuous aspect it activates. The Pleiades can cause injuries to the eyes and face and even blindness, especially when in harsh aspect to Mars. [4] Alcyone brings deep sorrows, tragedies and bereavement. [5] It can make people cruel, ruthless and promiscuous. Hostility from other, fall from power, disgrace and violence are also possible.

Celebrities with Alcyone in their natal chart include Adele (Mercury), Rudy Giuliani and Nigel Farage (Venus), Elon Musk (Saturn), Woody Allen (MC), Justin Bieber (DC) and Angelina Jolie (PoF and South Node).”
