Be Prepared for Some Delays - Full Moon in Gemini

December’s Full Moon falls in the sign of Gemini on 4th December 2017 at 01:48am (AEST).

What is Being Illuminated and the Likelihood of Change

With Mercury turning retrograde shortly before the Full Moon exacts, your ability (or inability) to remain flexible could be highlighted as we build towards the Moon’s fullness.

Issues related to control and/or rigidity could feature and with the Full Moon in T Square with Neptune the advice is to go with the flow as much as is possible.

With the Sun and Moon in mutable signs last minute changes are likely.

Do you Feel Free to Express Yourself?

With Saturn conjunct this Moon’s ruler (Mercury), you could experience push back from others in relation to speaking your truth, expressing your ideas or sharing your personal beliefs.

Perhaps you feel held back, inadequate or shy when it comes to saying what you really think?

Lack of self-belief in your own knowledge may also be a pain point and with Mars sesquiquadrate this Full Moon  you could find that the words you speak trigger excessive reactions in others or that they do this for you.

With The Sun, Venus, Saturn and Mercury all in the sign of Sagittarius, tact could be an issue and someone could put their foot in it.

What’s the real story here, why the ‘over’-reaction and what do you or does someone need to release?

What needs conscious attention, acknowledgement and subsequent liberation?

Delegate, Network, Re-Connect with your Why

With so much mutable energy around it will be important to stay grounded and to not spread yourself too thin.

Delegate where you can and revisit your vision board/intentions to ensure that you refresh what it was that you wanted to achieve this lunar month and, importantly, why that achievement was so important to you.

With so many distractions it could be easy to get pulled off track now.

Potential Relationship Angst

Relationships could be a little discordant with what you need seemingly at odds with other’s desires and running around trying to ensure everyone is taken care of could actually back fire.

Maybe it’s time for a little breathing space; especially if communication issues are making things difficult…

With a little distance between you, it could be easier to step back from the emotion and to discern what’s really required to bring about greater balance and harmony.

Strengthen your Connection, Share your Gifts, Be Patient – Timing is Everything

Intuition and creativity could be increased now and you may feel a strong need to share yourself or your creations with others.

Meditation is recommended to keep your spiritual connection strong…

… and this is also likely to bring you greater clarity, or at least a sense of trust, if you’re feeling foggy and are unable to see the bigger picture.

More information may be required and it may not be until the end of this particular Mercury Retrograde cycle that whatever you’re working on right now bares fruit.

As usual with all Mercury Retrogrades – Rework, Revise, Revamp, Re-do…

Inspiration may be thin on the ground and a knowledge update could be required.

Sometimes it can feel like we’re going backwards in pursuit of our goals, but usually those backward-steps make the forward journey far more easier and an improvement on what would have otherwise been.

Travel delays are very likely now.

Potential for Tiredness/Illness

If you’ve not been looking after yourself then this Full Moon could have you feeling a lack of vitality or even experiencing an illness.

What is your body communicating to you and what needs to change?

Perhaps whatever is shown to you now could set the basis for your New Moon intentions on December 18th.

The New Moon will be in Sagittarius then, which is a great sign for growth, expansion and for tuning into your inner spiritual wisdom.

If you’d like to track those intentions throughout the month ahead, you can sign up for my Lunar Illuminations here.

You’ll receive 8 emails to help you to follow through with your goals and tune into the Moon; knowing the best times to go and the best times to slow.

Where does this Full Moon fall within your natal chart?

If you’re unsure of how to find this and would like help with understanding your natal chart, you can sign up for my newsletter and receive my E-Book “Introductory Tips for Astrological Self Awareness” for free.

Are there any planets, which fall at (or very close to) 11 degrees within your natal chart?

Those situated between 9 and 13 degrees of the mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces) and also Taurus, Cancer, Scorpio and Sagittarius) are likely to add more to the picture.

Indulge the Senses, Assess your Manifestations and Tune up Your Money Mantras – Full Moon in Taurus November 2017

November’s Full Moon falls in the sign of Taurus on 4th November 2017 at 03:22pm (AEST).

Expect your every need to be met. Expect the answer to every problem, expect abundance on every level…- Eileen Caddy.png

What is Being Illuminated?

As the moon waxes to full this week practical and tangible matters are likely to feature.

As with all Full Moons expect a light to be shone around behavioural patterns or emotions that are asking for your attention and with the Moon in trine aspect to Pluto there could be insightful revelations now around such patterns.

This aspect also tends to intensify the emotions and the energy around this full moon could well unearth something long standing or which feels primal.

 

Do you Feel Safe and Secure?

When Taurus features, issues related to your physical security may arise.

How safe do you feel in daily life?

Do you feel ‘held’ by those around you?

Safe to express your emotions?

Safe to ask for a hug?

Loved and Protected?

Do you feel financially secure and well provided for?

Is your income able to meet the needs of yourself and your family?

 

What is Your Belief System Around Money?

With Venus opposing Uranus and with Jupiter situated close to the Full Moon, you may be called upon to confront your belief system around money.

There could be an enlightening realisation about your relationship with money and how that is playing out within your life.

Themes around money and power could arise; such as believing that money is ‘bad’ or that to desire money is wrong.

Perhaps you feel that it’s only for those who wish for power over others or perhaps having money raises feelings of guilt within you.

You can choose to be friends with money or not.

I’ve been on both sides of the equation.

I prefer being friends 🙂

 

Abundance

Taurus energy relates to physical abundance and when we feel physically abundant, we tend to feel a greater sense of safety and vitality.

Having enough money brings you the freedom to make choices about how you care for your body.

What food do you choose to nourish your body with?

Organic, Cruelty Free, Whole foods…

… or do you choose less for yourself because you feel your financial situation can only afford you that?

Do you indulge in regular massages or other healing modalities that serve to support your body and to make your journey through this lifetime easier…

Or do you simply ensure to wash behind your neck once in a blue moon?

You have one body during this lifetime, so why not care for it in the most optimal way that you possibly can right now and ensure that this life is a healthy and vital one?

Indulging yourself in this way increases your sense of well-being.

Taurus energy reminds us to enjoy the pleasure of the senses, so why not honour your body with a candlelit bath, soft music and a glass of something you enjoy this evening?

Committing to nourish your body with nature-given foods, morning walks or ocean swims (if you’re lucky to live close to the ocean) is also something that is easily implemented and very effective.

 

Strengthen Your Connection to Mother Earth, Get Grounded

Taurus is the sign in Astrology most connected with the Earth and the body.

Taking time out in nature can strengthen your connection to Mother Earth, as can grounding techniques; such as visualising sending roots from the base of your spine down and out into the Earth below you.

If you’re feeling insecure then including this visualisation along with your morning meditation practice can increase your sense of belonging and help you to feel balanced and centred throughout the day.

 

Power and Your Ability as Creator of Your Life

Issues around personal power and your ability to manifest the life that you desire could arise now.

Do you actively participate in building the structures that you desire (as an active co-creator upon the Earth) or do you tend to blow in the wind; feeling like a victim of circumstance?

There is a great quote: “Dreams don’t work unless you do”.

If what you see isn’t quite living up to the dream around this Full Moon then maybe you could contemplate some actions to take at the next New Moon to bring what you want a little closer.

With a Grand Fire Trine between Uranus, Saturn and the North Node in this Full Moon chart, there’s certainly plenty of inspiration and motivation to be tapped into to help you instigate those changes.

On the other hand, if you find yourself feeling content and secure around this Full Moon, you may want to take the time to celebrate what you’ve managed to achieve to date.

In either case, I prescribe expressing plenty of gratitude, because when we look at what we do have and give heartfelt thanks for that, magic tends to happen.

 

How Can You Help Others to Rise?

With Neptune in trine to the Sun/Jupiter conjunction expect an increase in sensitivity and potentially philanthropic tendencies.

What can you contribute to today that will help lift others?

With Taurus’ concern with the Earth and Neptune’s connection to the Ocean, you might want to consider reducing your plastic consumption and investing in a Cora Ball in order to protect our Ocean environment and water animals.

Or perhaps you’d like to “give a cluck” about the chickens that lay your eggs and choose to use this fabulous App – CluckAR 🙂

 

Signs From the Body

Taurus rules the throat and neck, so be aware of any discomfort around this area as we move towards this Full Moon.

Pain or illness in those body parts related to your throat chakra may be related to blocked self-expression; perhaps the inability to speak your truth.

Wearing blue and eating blue foods; such as Eggplant or Blueberries can help to bring balance.

 

Which area of your life is likely to be affected by this Full Moon?

Where does this Full Moon fall within your natal chart?

If you’re unsure of how to find this and would like help with understanding your natal chart, you can sign up for my newsletter and receive my E-Book “Introductory Tips for Astrological Self Awareness” for free.

Look for 11 degrees and 58 seconds of Taurus (The Moon), and 11 degrees and 58 seconds of Scorpio (The Sun).

Which house axis (areas of life) is being highlighted in your chart?

Are there any planets, which fall at (or very close to) 11 degrees within your natal chart?

Those situated between 9 and 13 degrees of the fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius) and also Aries, Gemini, Libra and Sagittarius are likely to add more to the picture.

Spend Some Time in and Around Water to Harness the Full Dynamic Power of October’s – Full Moon in Aries

RJM_1682.JPG
Like this Full Moon, my beautiful daughter lacks the water element in her birth chart and simply lights up in the Ocean 🙂 Include plenty of the Wet Stuff to Bring Balance during early October!!

If you’d like to receive my New and Full Moon reports in your Inbox a little earlier each month, you can sign up to my Newsletter here.

 

A Boost in Motivation

The Full Moon in Aries will exact on October 6th 2017 at 04:40am AEST, GMT +10) bringing with it a likely boost in energy levels and motivation.

It’s time to get things moving and take action towards those goals!!

Tap into some of that Aries daring and just do it!!

 

Fighting For Needs and Protection 

Mars is the ruler of this Full Moon.

The God of War is at his highest expression when fighting on behalf of a cause or the needs of others

… and if you’ve been feeling unheard or ignored of late then you may find you’re compelled to speak up about that too.

 

Are You Doing What You Want?

With Aries’ concern with the self, this energy can receive a bad reputation for selfishness, but you know what?

Being selfish and self indulgent sometimes  is down right liberating.

This is a great Moon to finally sign up for something you’ve wanted to do for yourself, but perhaps you’ve been putting off due to feeling guilty or bound to others.

 

Overcoming Challenges, Reactivity, Impatience and Aggression

The week leading up to a Full Moon can illuminate that which is in need of healing or personal patterns in need of some conscious attention.

With Aries energy in the spotlight, we’re talking: reactivity, impatience, frustration and aggressive outbursts; especially where there is anger that hasn’t been dealt with or fully acknowledged.

With a square to Pluto thrown in for good measure, there may be a rise in emotional intensity and potential volcanic eruptions.

Especially heightened with Pluto due to be moving at his slowest and turning direct on September 29th.

The week leading up to this Full Moon is likely to contain some raw power!!

The stuff that moves mountains, but it can also run amok if not harnessed and channelled effectively.

 

Potential Relationship Dramas

Relationship angst is a likely strong theme as the Me (Aries Moon) versus You (Libra Sun) polarity is highlighted and that Pluto contact can throw in some drama too, so I would highly recommend dealing with issues early on.

 

Illuminating the Dark Side

You may also be given insights to energy previously categorised as ‘bad’ or ‘negative’ and, which you have attempted to suppress.

How do you deal with your anger?

Were you raised to believe that good people don’t lose their temper or perhaps don’t even feel anger?

If you tend to ignore it, push it down and hope it will go away, it may just come back in full swing during the lead up to this Full Moon.

Resentment, Depression and Skin Rashes are all possible manifestations of angry emotions that have not been expressed and if you’re someone who usually says yes to everyone and everything (at your own expense) then you may find it hard to hold it together now.

 

Dropping The Rose-Coloured Glasses 

With 3 placements in Libra (Sun, Mercury and Jupiter) diplomatic solutions are possible.

But with the Sun and Mercury inconjunct Neptune you may need to drop your idealism and take off those rose-tinted spectacles.

We are human beings with a wide array of different moods and emotions.

Expecting peace and harmony at all times is unrealistic.

How about we have a go at loving one another unconditionally, exactly as we are in any given moment?

That doesn’t mean that we allow others to run rough shod over us or that we look after everyone else’s needs and neglect our own.

But it does mean that we can hold space for others who may be losing their shit around this time and respond with compassion and understanding.

Patience is not likely to be a strong point  now, but thankfully Aries anger is quick to ignite and quick to diffuse, so try not to hold on to grievances.

 

Motivated by Love

With Mars (ruler of this Full Moon) and Venus snuggling up close in Virgo it would be wise to use these insights for some self or relationship improvement rather than berate yourself or others.

Pluto also offers us the chance for transformation – maybe through talking or modifying your communication style and this energy is also pretty gifted at showing us our emotional depths.

What imbalances are playing out here?

What does the situation need?

 

Advice for Coping – Include the Wet Stuff!!

If you are finding the run up to this Moon a tricky one, I highly recommend:

  • Drinking plenty of water (1 litre per 22kgs of body weight is the recommended daily amount) and spend time in and around water if you can – baths, ocean swims… This Full Moon chart is lacking in the water element; bringing a risk of burn out, stress and lack of consideration for other’s feelings. Sitting by a waterfall and listening to it may well help to soothe any stress and bring you back into balance. The photo I used here is of my daughter (yes, I know she is beautiful 🙂 ). She also lacks the water element in her natal chart and simply lights up in the surf!! Spending time in and around water completes and balances her. We may all need some of this early October.
  • Safely expressing any anger or resentment that you’re currently feeling before early October
  • Writing out any anger that is still being felt around this Full Moon – for example, with a burning ritual
  • Upping the exercise to mitigate potential anxiety or to release pent up energy
  • Ensuring that your brain (Aries Rules the head) and your nervous system are well nourished in the run up to October 6th may help to mitigate anxiety and lower stress levels  (Especially with Mars’ placement in Virgo at this Full Moon). You may have to think on your feet!!
    • Brain Foods =Applies, Almonds, Cauliflower, Broccoli, Cabbage, Blueberries, Walnuts, Rockmelon (also known as Cantaloupe Melon depending on where you live), Watermelon
    • Soothe Stress and Potentially Related Digestive Upsets = Lettuce, Pine Nuts, Ginger, eat lots of Magnesium-Rich (i.e. apples, avocados, apricots, pineapple, peaches, grapefruit, garlic, seeds and whole grains) and Potassium-Rich foods (i.e. apples, apricots, bananas, avocados, brown rice, dates, grapefruit, leafy veggies, kelp, lemons, sesame seeds)
  • Get enough sleep (aim for 8 hours every night)
  • Meditate for at least 10 minutes a day to help lower blood pressure and increase feelings of harmony and spiritual connection
  • Spending time alone to process your feelings may prevent you from taking them out on anyone unnecessarily.
  • Looking for ways to improve how you express your anger – books, courses, counsellors, therapists…
  • Consider taking a Bush Flower Essence like Black Eyed Susan to help lower any stress or anxiety or book a Bush Flower Essence Consultation for a blend specific to you.

 

Personal Power in Overcoming Challenges

This is a great Full Moon for rising to and overcoming any challenges that are thrown your way.

If there’s something you’re looking to start then Aries energy is a good a time as any and with November’s New and Full Moons falling in the fixed signs of Taurus and Scorpio that would be a great time to apply staying power to whatever has begun now.

So, what are you going to channel all that fiery energy into?

The Potential for Confusion, Going with the Flow and a Touch of Compassion- Full Moon in Pisces September 2017

The Potential For Confusion and Overwhelm & The Need to Go With The Flow

If you’d like to receive my New and Full Moon reports in your Inbox a little earlier each month, you can sign up to my Newsletter here.

 

Apologies for the Confusion

Okay, so before I continue, you have every right to be confused.

I totally messed up on my latest Full Moon post and somehow managed to blend the energy of the upcoming September New Moon in Virgo (occurring September 20th) with this week’s Full Moon in Pisces (occurring September 6th).

Yes, that’s right – there is no Full Moon in Virgo this week – The Full Moon is falling in Pisces, but there is lots of Virgo energy around, as the Sun is currently in Virgo (and will oppose our Pisces Full Moon).

Mars will also be in Virgo as the Full Moon hits and Mercury (currently retrograde and obviously having a massive impact on my personal energy) will also re-enter Virgo very soon after the Full Moon (on September 10th), so some of my original post remains here and some will re-feature in my up-coming post on the Virgo New Moon on September 20th.

I have no idea how I did it or why it took me until this morning to realise what I’d done.

Only that I’d started to write about the New Moon before the Full Moon this month and that obviously paved the way for me to go completely off track!!

Lesson learnt!!

I’ve had my butt whipped by Mercury and his very recent journey through my own Sun Sign (Virgo) and I’ve also had Mercury Retrograde conjunct my Sun in Virgo with me for the last year (as denoted by my Solar Return chart), so it’s been a big year of lessons, reviews, renovations and restructuring for me on many levels – personal, home, financial, career, commitments…

And yes, part of that is needing to take responsibility for more forward planning and organisation with Mother Earth Astrology!!

Anyway, enough of my babbling.

Sincerely sorry for the mistake.

Time for a cuppa now for me and to schedule a planning date in my diary.

Thank goodness the reno on our home is almost complete – yay!! more time for my beloved Astrology 🙂

Much Love, Toria xo

 

The Need to Go with The Flow

Yes, in case you haven’t already noticed, Mercury is retrograde at the minute.

Virgos and Leos are the ones in the firing line this time around, as Mercury has been moving backwards through your signs, but that doesn’t mean that the rest of the signs are immune.

Mercury rules Virgo and Gemini in Astrology, so no matter which sign he’s backtracking through, these two signs tend to be strongly affected every time he retrogrades.

And…

… we all have these signs somewhere in our charts, so despite those three signs being strongly activated right now (Gemini, Virgo and Leo), it’s also likely that you’re being affected in some way too.

For me personally, there have been changed appointments, links that usually work failing, network issues and all the usual Mercury Retrograde shenanigans playing out within my life and within the lives of friends, neighbours and family.

As we’ve moved through these last two weeks in the build up to our Full Moon in Pisces, however, I have flowed with whatever has been asked of me by choosing to be in the moment.

Pisces teaches us the Art of BEing, The Art of Going with the Flow and the Art of Trust.

 

Releasing Expectation, Learning the Lessons, Forgiveness and Trust

I have learnt over the years that it is usually my own personal expectations that make what appears in my daily life hard to deal with.

By learning to trust what is happening in every moment and to be present with that (exactly as it is), it is amazing time and again how life proves to be delivering exactly what I need.

So, the next time you’re stuck in traffic, your lunch date gets held up or blows you out or your child doesn’t react in the way that you expected, try taking a deep breath and meeting life exactly as it is in that moment – no judgement, no anger, no frustration…

What is the best thing that you can do at this point and how is that working out for you?

Virgo is a mutable sign, so maybe Mercury’s Retrograde through Virgo has required greater adaptability, flexibility and the ability to think on your feet?

Through Leo, is he asking you to re-work what sets your heart alight or re-think how you like to create?

And yes, there’s also the lessons that retrograde planets bring to us.

So, if you’ve also experienced a couple of weeks of change, flux, delays, rework and uncertainty, how can you take responsibility for it?

Do you need to communicate more effectively?

Could there be a tinge of criticism or bossiness in your communication style or maybe a hint of drama that is asking for your awareness?

Do you need to check and double-check appointments, event times, phone numbers?

Do you need to slow down or make greater time for rest and relaxation?

Do you need to let go of expectations?

How do you react when things don’t turn out how you anticipated and how can you better deal with it if that reaction isn’t serving you?

Pisces also teaches us compassion (of self and others), forgiveness (of self and others) and release, so this is a great Full Moon to be aware of how you might be holding onto grudges.

What do you need to let go of?

Is it time for a forgiveness ritual?

 

Compassion, Oneness and The Call to Service

Many people have felt a calling to be of service in the build up to this Full Moon.

Especially highlighted is the assistance being given to the people of Texas following the devastation of hurricane Harvey.

Pisces energy reminds us that we are all one. It is compassion, kindness and charity.

This will be especially heightened by Neptune also sitting conjunct the Pisces Moon.

Prayers also carry loving energy and I am a strong believer in their power, so if you want to help someone, but can’t do so physically (because you’re far away or they’re not open to receiving help from you), it may help to pray on their behalf instead.

 

Increased Sensitivity, Intuition and Empathy

On a personal level, you may be noticing an increase in your own sensitivity and that may make you feel like withdrawing and being alone; especially if you view the World as harsh or are surrounded by others who don’t share your need for gentleness.

Spending time in nature can be helpful, as can meditation and spending time with your soul self (higher self).

Meditation will also strengthen your intuition, help to lessen anxiety and increase your ability to go with the flow.

So much Piscean/Neptune energy can also bring the potential for confusion and for feeling foggy.

If this is you or you’re connecting with anxious feelings then beginning a daily meditation ritual could work wonders.

The Sun and Mars in Virgo energy loves rituals – are yours serving you?

 

As Within, So Without

Are your surroundings a good reflection of your inner self?

When Virgo energy is strong, we can feel strongly affected by clutter; suddenly needing to have a clear out, a clean up and to have everything in its rightful place.

The Piscean/Neptune influence can work well with this and we can use our intuition in the form of a Feng Shui tune up.

How does your home environment feel?

Could certain areas be cleaned up or re-organised?

I feel it’s no coincidence that our renovations are still in full swing at home having recommenced at the time that I began my recent 25 day Fast.

Remember that your outer World (what you are manifesting out into the field around you) is a reflection of your inner state.

Is your home a loving, peaceful sanctuary? How does it affect your energy?

We still have Venus, the North Node and Mercury (stationary) placed in Leo as this Full Moon hits, so why not embrace your creativity and see what you can re-design?

 

Do Something that Inspires You or Inspire Others

Playing music and/or watching movies that inspire and uplift you are also a great way to enjoy the Pisces Full Moon energy.

I watched Hook and Moana over the weekend with my little one – both awesome.

It’s so sad that we lost Robyn Williams so young and through such tragic circumstances, but how blessed are we with the brilliance that he left us.

He had the ability to inspire and uplift many of us through his acting.

Those with the ability to act often embody a strong Pisces, Jupiter or Neptune influence to their energy.

What Artistic gifts would you like to share with the World as we enter this Full Moon?

Is there something that you could do in your daily life to help inspire, uplift or heal?

 

Illumination of Shadows

Full Moons can also bring our shadows to the surface, so be aware of the negative aspects of Pisces, which may show themselves to you as we get closer to the moon’s fullness –

  • Overwhelm (of life, of emotions) – see meditation advice above if you relate to this.
  • Confusion (feeling vague, lost, foggy,) – could diet be playing a part? Gut/Brain connection?
  • Denial of Responsibility (wanting to bury your head in the sand instead of dealing with any issues that are presented – hint: dealing with them will put you in a better place 🙂 )
  • Dishonesty, Delusion or Deceit (of self or by others or often by own expectations)
  • Feeling Powerless/Like a Victim of Life – how can you take steps to begin to empower yourself?
  • Addictive Patterns/Behaviours (Drink, Drugs, Running Away, Hiding, Over-eating – as above… is there anything that you can do to start to break the pattern?)
  • Lack of Personal Boundaries (in relationships with others – perhaps you find certain people draining and need ways to better protect your personal energy or perhaps you need to say no more often and attend to your own needs as well as you do everyone elses…)

 

Could Early Wounds be Playing a Part?

Saturn in Sagittarius’ square to Chiron in Pisces remains active at this Full Moon indicating that low self worth and/or feelings of inadequacy could be arising now.

Are unconscious behaviours now be illuminated?

Do you or does someone else need to acknowledge how grief, deep emotional wounding (perhaps from childhood), or fear may be playing a part in these patterns?

Perhaps you fear your own sensitivity, appearing vulnerable and/or other’s judgements?

Is it time to release negative emotional patterns that may be holding you back from shining your light?

 

Mercury – Change of Direction

Mercury will turn direct on 5th September 2017 at 09:29:22pm (AEST, GMT+10) after journeying through Virgo and Leo this month, which should bring some forward momentum after a period of rework, rethinking, repair and possible withdrawal, so expect a smoother ride from this Full Moon onwards for a while.

The more wisely your use of the Mercury Retrograde period, the smoother the onward journey is likely to be…

 

Relationship Patterns

Of course, Mercury Retrograde can also bring up some communication issues in the form of relationship dilemmas.

What has the run up to this Full Moon taught you about your own communication style or your own style of relating?

Our relationships can serve as a mirror reflecting to us that which is in need of healing within us or the shadows that we are playing out in our daily lives.

Is it time to claim it all, to let go of blame – it really is all with you and all up to you.

How can you change that reflection to make your life more of what you want it to be?

 

Which area of your life is likely to be affected by this Full Moon?
