Uranus in Taurus Practicality and ingenuity combine as powerful drives in your life now that you have begun a new cycle. Taking innovative concepts and making them real and practical is your strong suit; getting stuck in the mud is to be avoided at all costs.
The Low-Down on the Far-Out
Financial savvy, inventiveness, worldly genius. The fine arts and all manner of fantasies assume a larger-than-life importance. Surrendering to fate, karma, and other powers greater than merely mortal may be seen as the ultimate liberation. If all is maya illusion , what is the reality that gives rise to the world of appearances? Ambition, responsibility, a place for everyone and everyone in their place….

A scandal may break bringing us much unwanted attention. We may also have to face the inevitable consequences of our excesses during the Gibbous phase and suffer burn-out or a heart attack.
Our recklessness may result in a crash or an accident, bringing us to a dead stop. We may feel that we have reached the limit of our endurance and run away from an untenable situation or we may simply not get the prize of promotion we had been looking forward to, not necessarily because we are undeserving but because there is little room at the top and so often there can only be one winner. At his Full Moon Al Gore suffered defeat at the elections which he had probably expected to win and John Kerry suffered the same fate in Failure or success, the Full Moon always brings a release of energy as we experience the relief of a definite result.
We have run into our limitations and must now resign ourselves to the situation or we have scaled our mountain and can now spend a few moments enjoying the view. Ideally, therefore, the Full Moon brings a sense of liberation. Our goals achieved we can now treat ourselves to a holiday. Subsequently, the later part of the Full Moon is often more quiet that the exciting but hectic Gibbous phase.
For the time being our struggles are over, and we can begin to look at our situation and achievements more dispassionately and set ourselves new objectives. Sometimes, however, an emotional crisis is needed to clear the air first. Detachment and separation are in fact major themes during the progressed Full Moon. The distance between the Sun and Moon is now at its maximum and this may lead to polarization in our lives at this stage. We may think in black and white and wish to shed that part of us we feel is evil, heinous or destructive.
We want to rid ourselves of our demons and to leave our old life as far behind us as we possibly can. I know several people who decided to emigrate at this phase, others who felt they should at least take a trip round the world. At the MC, we are opposite the 4th house and so the Full Moon may find us very far from home. This ultimate separation also occurs during the shamanic quest for a healing or revitalising vision.
In fact, the crest of the wave as seen in the diagram represents the point of greatest enlightenment. At the Full Moon both solar and lunar forces are at their peak. With all this light, we must see clearly.

It is for this reason that the Full Moon is often quoted as being a time for visions and revelations. We are on top of the world, talking to the gods. The religious quest and spiritual fervour of the ninth house and Gibbous phase now crystallize into a concrete vision, conversion or articles of faith. According to legend it was also during a Full Moon that Siddharta liberated himself from all worldly illusions and became the realized Buddha. For some of us the awe we experience during the late Gibbous and early Full Moon phase can be such an inspiration that we find our vocation and a career direction.
At his first progressed Full Moon a six year old Neil Armstrong was taken up in a small aircraft and fell in love with space and flying. His second, thirty years later, found him in outer space on the Gemini 8 mission, very far away from home indeed. Whereas in the first half we were busy leaving home and breaking free from the past, after the Full Moon we have to return, bringing with us, however, our experience and insights to change and improve the situation or place we came from.
In this way we revisit the past and change it at the same time. We are now in the 11th and 12th house and so the result of the Full Moon must somehow be assimilated by the collective. We must share our illuminations or success with others. This is when Moses comes down the mountain with the stone tablets to give them to his people. Similarly, if we have just spent a year in India with our Guru, now we may have to come home and use our changed attitude in a new job. Our sabbatical year or our pregnancy leave may be over and we return to a familiar routine.
We may also build on our achievement of the Full Moon: we can now take our diploma to the job market or use our prize to get funding for the next project. Neil Armstrong continued his space flights to become the First Man on the Moon. His comment that the small step he was taking would be a giant leap for mankind expressed a very Disseminating or 11th house sentiment. If the Full Moon brought disappointment or downfall this phase often means we are trying to come to terms with the facts.
The sense of detachment and crystallization of the later part of the Full Moon continues into the Disseminating phase and we may spend time reflecting on what happened, evaluate our actions, lick our wounds and draw our conclusions. If we have found a vocation, we must take subsequent action. This means that now we find our niche or place in society. We may join a movement or political party or otherwise seek out kindred spirits.

A fifteen-year-old McCartney, for instance, joined the Beatles at this phase. We may start to build networks to further our newfound cause. For some the return after the heroic deeds and high drama of the Full Moon is an even greater challenge than the outward journey. They may feel, in fact, like they have not really come home at all but are still far away in spirit.
Those who at the Full Moon fled from what seemed insurmountable problems may find themselves on the run or hiding, incapable or unwilling to face the problems they left behind. Others may feel quite comfortable in the service of their chosen causes. Our jobs or institutions may provide us with a collective identity that protects us like a warm blanket. During the reintegration process which is typical of the Disseminating phase, we may add more and more water to the wine of our Full Moon convictions and may in fact be in danger of forgetting what we knew then with such absolute clarity.
What Does This New Moon in Virgo Mean?
Similarly, those spirits who have transcended their worldly existence and reached Nirvana, may decide never to reincarnate anymore. The Disseminating phase may therefore be a rather quiet time in which we may find ourselves hiding, underachieving and forgetting to some degree. In that case, however, the Last Quarter will sound an unforgiving wake up call. The progressed Last Quarter can be compared to transits or progressions to the Ascendant see diagram.
This means that we move from the collective and public 12th house to the extremely personal 1st house. The Last Quarter can therefore be as painful as birth; we have to leave the womb, wake up form a long sleep and face who we are, alone and separate. This crisis can also be compared to the sobering experience of having to retire, when we all of a sudden find we are no longer part of a collective and have lost our public, social or corporate identity. We now have to return to our essential self.
The last quarter of the cycle corresponds to the first three houses; the main building blocks of our personality.

The progressed Last Quarter therefore raises urgent questions about who we are, what we want and how we see our destiny. But should I now that the economy is about to go into recession? At Last Quarter we should shake free from many distractions, focus and return to ourselves. For those who have been adrift, in hiding or in exile it is time to come home, dispose of the tyrants and usurpers and claim their inheritance. When, after having wandered the seas for many years Odysseus arrives back in his native Attica he is alone, destitute and goes unrecognised.
Now he must prove himself to be the rightful king and by feats of strength reclaim his wife and his throne. Like First Quarter therefore, Last Quarter may bring tests of strength and courage and especially for young people the Last Quarter phase may be very similar to a First Quarter experience: both can mean a step towards greater independence and self-realization.
In fact, at each phase of the cycle we may be confronted with issues related to the house opposite to the one we are currently at. However, there are differences. As we have seen from the examples quoted above, our concerns at Last Quarter are more about the future than about the past. At First Quarter we may worry about being ready; at Last Quarter we tend to be afraid we have left things too late.
We may feel we have to set out on journey with winter or old age approaching. Another difference we can sometimes observe is that at Last Quarter the rebellious spirit , characteristic of both Quarter phases, is not so much directed against our personal background, parents, mentors etc. At his progressed Last Quarter Mohammed Ali changed his name and his religion in defiance of the history of blacks in America, and so forged a new identity for himself.
At Last Quarter we are forcefully reminded of the fact that the cycle is nearing its end. We may feel we have to steel ourselves in anticipation of a crisis, or that we are offered one last opportunity to make a dream come true; in most cases, therefore, the Last Quarter will spur us into action.
