November Full Moon of the Celestial Whale

image saved from

The Whale Full Moon is about karmic reward, being showered with blessings and discovering the pleasure of sharing our wealth. It is a time to face the demons from the past, lay them to rest and start afresh. The ruling influence is that of Pluto and Venus. The lucky gemstone is Amethyst. The ruling number is 6 (manifestation in the material world). 6 reaches up to heaven to help manifest on earth. The number 9 is the answer down from heaven that it is done (completion). 

The Full Moon energy starts building up in the week or so preceding the Full Moon.

Every Celestial Mansion has its own energy. We can use this energy to our advantage and / or to warn us against taking certain actions. The Whale mansion is about rhythm, perfumes, jewels and fashion. It is the womb of the mother and of mother earth (mining). The energy vibration of this galactic mansion is nurturing and mothering. However, it is also good for spending time alone in quiet contemplation in order to gain insight. It is good for art, wealth, beauty and being spontaneous and optimistic. A good time to buy beautiful things. 

Warnings during this time are against misunderstandings in romance and deep unconscious issues that may resurface. What was hidden will be exposed. Use this energy to resolve issues, safeguard your belongings and find treasure or hidden things. There is a strong warning against accidents at sea and with water. Buildings under construction may collapse. Guard against hostility, aggression, crime, terrorism and prison.

I aim to live magically, and invite you to join me on my journey as I explore and explain the universal energies so that we can move with the rhythm of nature for our ultimate benefit and gain. In my quest I track the daily movement and energy of the sun, moon and planets that influence earth. I put pictures of the moon's path and what it symbolizes for all to follow and enjoy.


Venus - bestows, love, beauty, wealth and an easy life.
Pluto (Yama) - control, underworld, death, transformation, endings, conclusions, hidden secrets.
Pluto is the Lord of the dead and the giver of wealth. He is the Lord of virtues, righteousness, and just rewards. Life, death and transformation. Judgement. Pray and Prosper.

Symbols: womb, point of origin, streets, mines.

1. God sent a monster whale to destroy a ship in a storm. Jonah was thrown overboard as a sacrifice to save the crew. The whale swallowed Jonah whole and spat him out after three days. The people of Nineveh then declared a 40 day fast.
2. Poseidon (Neptune) sent a monster whale to destroy the land of Aithiopia as punishment for the Queen boasting that her daughter Andromeda was more beautiful than the nymphs (Nereides). Andromeda was then chained up to be eaten by the whale as a sacrifice to save the people.
3. Joseph the dreamer was thrown into a dark pit - became psychic.
4. Being lowered into the grave and then resurrected.

Energy Vibration: returning to a calm place.

Numbers: 2, 6, 11.

What the Whale Moon Mansion means to us:
*Time for returning to a calm place. Make time to spend quietly on your own to reflect and find answers from your inner wisdom. Meditate and do yoga.  A stroll in the park or a visit to botanical gardens will sooth the soul.
*Off with the old and on with the new. It is a good time to let go of that which is no longer needed. It could mean a physical burial (funeral); destroying something that is no longer needed; demolishing old buildings; or putting an end to a bad relationship. Bury or put an end to outworn modes of operating and things that no longer serve you.
*Zen Masters believed that in order to gain something we have to sacrifice something. Spiritually this could mean fasting or giving up on something you do or eat, for example don't eat meat or fish during this time.
*This is also a good time to consult with a counselor, psychologist, psychic or adviser as they will be more empathetic with an enhanced ability to 'take in' what you are feeling.

Spell work:
Good for spell work of a deceptive nature. Also good for fashioning pentacles, amulets and yantra's. Work on self-expression and creativity. A good time to buy and sell things but avoid the sea or driving in excessive rain. Good for mining; for digging canals, dams and wells and for finding hidden treasure and lost objects. A lucky mansion to start something new and for quick money. A time for self-restraint and taking responsibility. Good for removing anger between people; reconciliation and restoring peace.

Dark Side of the Whale:
This mansion can be destructive, deceptive with dangers related to poison, burning, accidents and drowning. It can cause disgrace, disease, death, ruin, injury from or to animals, sickness or monetary loss. Hospitals and prisons also feature here. Can cause diseases of the throat and even suffocation. The widow maker. Can leave you feeling alone.

Tarot Cards that Represent this Moon Mansion:

What are Tarot Cards: They represent signs and symbols of the universe. Archetypes and symbols tha indicate universal events.

Judgement and 6 of Pentacles = Pray and Prosper.

6 of Pentacles: Just rewards, shared wealth and setting boundaries (drawing the line).

Judgement - The constellation Cetus, the Whale or Great Fish, symbolize our journey from ignorance to spiritual enlightenment. The belly of the whale is the transforming womb that casts the newly reborn soul onto the solid ground of spiritual truth. The whale also represents the material world of our mortal selves and when the whale spits us out the immortal soul comes into being. The Judgement card of the tarot depicts the rebirth of six people being resurrected from their watery graves of death and ignorance. They, like Jonah, are hearing and being tested by the Word of God, symbolized by their response to the sound of the angel’s trumpet. This can also indicate an actual birth when the baby is cast out from the womb into the world.

Life, death, transformation, rebirth, introspection, legal ruling, judgement.
 Mass prayer, reaching up to heaven for help.

The main meaning is that of TRANSFORMATION. Being transformed from a dwarf to a the giant that lies within. Descending into waters of our subconscious mind brings about transformation. We descend and re-emerge with that great part of the self that we lost a long time ago. It is about travelling deep within the self to discover the greatness that lies within each and everyone of us. It is also about emotions buried deep within our consciousness - the slumbering beasts we dare not let surface. The whale symbolizes nurturing, emotional depth and creativity. Those who are influenced by Cetus energy are extremely sensitive and perceptive.

People influenced by this galactic mansion are intelligent and witty and love the fine things of life, but they can also be fanatical in their beliefs, which can lead to ups and downs in life. A person born under this influence is stable, honest, artistic and knowledgeable. They are frank in their opinions and don't twist the truth to please others. They are career minded and capable of rising to positions of authority. They are the first ones to try new things. Social reformers, activists and philosophers are prominent here. 
On the negative side they can be moody, reckless, cruel, ungrateful and like to gossip. They may suffer from a fear of water.  They suffer struggles, restraint and obstacles in life. Because the womb is so confining, they may suffer because of feeling restricted or confined. This may result in them feeling resentful and jealous of the good fortune of others. They may oppress others, or become freedom fighters.
Their fascination with death may lead them to becoming morticians. They can be fanatical and intolerant of others who have different opinions. Sexually they can be excessive and indulgent. Their inner struggles lead to transformation and spiritual enlightenment.

The powerful Celestial Whale galaxy falls under Aries which is ruled by Mars. It can be harsh in that it determines what deserves to be cultivated and preserved. This galaxy is concerned with the energy we use to maintain ourselves in the material world. This galaxy is also ruled by the angel of death which makes it formidable and fierce. Things can really heat up under its influence. This galaxy takes away that which has reached its term of life to a new condition and that which is not meant for this world.  It indicates the movement of the soul away from the body. It conveys ideas pertaining to discipline and self-control. It is about being faithful,  firm, enduring, supporting, maintaining, nourishing and virtuous. This galaxy carries the negative influences of crime, murders, terrorism, etc. This mansion carries the energies of Pluto. It is about self-restrain and transformation. It is about the pain, obstacles and struggles we have to go through on our road to self-actualization or self-realization. Like Pluto it holds the mystery of life and death.  This is "the waters that carry things away". This refers to all the passage of souls to the other side when they die. This energy leads the dead to the other side. The energy of this galaxy can bring disgrace, trouble with legacies, and dishonor.

You may find that all the Celestial Mansions affect your life in one way or another, but it will affect each person's life in a different way depending on where it falls in your birth chart.
