Full Moon November 27, 2023 – So Frustrating!

Full Moon November 2023 Astrology

The Full Moon in Gemini on November 27, 2023, is opposite Mars. So, the meaning of the Full Moon in November 2023 astrology is focusing your passion and energy on your goals through hard work to avoid irritation, anger and impulsive actions.

The November 2023 Full Moon is also square Saturn, which indicates frustration and blocked ambitions. This is a challenging moon phase. Patience, self-discipline and flexibility are needed to avoid reckless behavior, instability and conflict.

Full Moon November 2023 Horoscope

The Full Moon on Monday, November 27, 2023, is at 04°51′ Gemini. As the Full Moon horoscope below shows, the Moon opposite Mars and square Saturn creates a red triangle called a T-square aspect pattern.

Another significant influence on the November 2023 Full Moon astrology is Mercury square Neptune. These are all harsh red aspects that indicate a challenging Moon phase. This is reinforced by the alignment of the Moon with a difficult fixed star at 06°08′ Gemini.

Full Moon November 2023 Horoscope

Full Moon November 2023 Astrology

Sun opposite Moon brings your home, family, and intimate relationships into sharper focus for the following two weeks of this moon phase. Opposing forces, such as work versus home or what you need versus what you want, create inner tension and external pressures. This can lead to conflict and crises that drain your energy.

The lunar qualities of emotions and instincts climax during the November 2023 Full Moon. So, use your increased emotional strength and intuition to overcome any relationship challenges. Subconscious awareness allows for an honest and balanced look at your relationships. You will see any relationship dynamics or negative feelings causing disharmony.

Full Moon Aspects

A Full Moon opposite Mars brings irritability, impulsiveness and emotional volatility. Anger and impatience can lead to arguments, fights or accidents. The best way to avoid conflict and violence is to channel your energy into physical or competitive activities like hard work, exercise, sports and sex.

You may feel a strong urge to fulfill your most passionate desires. However, selfish or vindictive motives could backfire. Better results may come from standing up for your family, fighting for a just cause or defending the vulnerable.

The Full Moon square Saturn creates tests and challenges due to the restriction of emotions. It makes it harder to share your feelings and to empathize with others. Sadness, loneliness, guilt, and shame are possible as you are reminded of past relationship failures, loss, and grief.

Take responsibility for your emotional reactions. Blaming others for bad moods will only worsen matters and risk cherished relationships. Unhealthy or codependent relationships involving abuse or addiction may end. Even apparently normal relationships can suffer from emotional coldness, criticism or bullying.

Mars square Saturn indicates frustration and inhibition. Your desires and needs may grow stronger, yet your ambitions are blocked by an authority figure or a lack of energy, resources or time. Poor judgment, a negative attitude, criticism or bullying can delay progress.

A defensive position, compromise or retreat may be the best option. Instead of starting new projects or chasing your desires, save your energy to hold onto what you already have. Patience and plodding hard work will get you there.


November 2023 Full Moon T-square

T-square Achievement

A T-square aspect pattern is created by the Full Moon, Mars and Saturn. This red triangle is charged with energy. It makes you very active and achievement-oriented, wanting to reach your goals quickly.

However, T-squares also make it impossible to relax and more challenging to work continuously. They can cause a rigid outlook, an inability to change and a tendency to “act first and think later”. This means that mistakes can be made very easily and repeatedly.

The best way to handle a T-square is to be flexible and dynamic. Break your work into smaller parts so you can work like crazy and finish them quickly. After a break, you can return to work with renewed vigor.

The T-squares apex and the planet that lies there indicate where the achievement is directed and which planetary principle is used. With a Saturn apex, the achievement is directed toward duty, career, stability, structure and long-term security. It is done with patience, discipline, responsibility, dedication and practicality.

Full Moon Confusion

Mercury square Neptune can cause confusion, disorientation, misinformation, deception and scheming. So be very clear and concise, and don’t make snap judgments. Seek trusted or professional advice if signing contracts or dealing with legal matters.

Avoid conspiracy theories, cults, drugs, and alcohol. Better ways to escape reality include daydreaming, listening to music and watching movies.

The Constellations

Full Moon November 2023 is in the Sign of Gemini. But as the star map below shows, it is located in the Constellation Taurus. The Signs and the Constellations do not match up. Over the last 2000 years, the Constellations have moved nearly 30° out of alignment with the Signs because of the precession of the equinoxes.

The Zodiac was invented only as a measuring device. The ecliptic line in the image below matches the degrees in the Full Moon horoscope above. Like the original astrologers, I use the Constellations and fixed stars for interpretation, not the Signs.

Full Moon November 2023 Meaning

Full Moon November 2023 [Stellarium]

The closest major fixed star to the November 27 Full Moon (04♊51) is Gamma Tauri (06♊08). It is part of the Hyades star cluster in the face of the Bull. Officially named Prima Hyadum, it is also called Hyadum I.

Ptolemy said the stars in the head of the Bull are like Saturn and Mercury. Prima Hyadum has the spectral type K0, indicating the planetary nature of Mars. Either way, this is a challenging fixed star.

Full Moon in the Hyades

Fixed star Prima Hyadum gives tears, sudden events, violence, fierceness, poisoning, blindness, wounds or injuries to the head by instruments, weapons or fevers, and contradictions of fortune. [1]

This star also creates scandalous actions, sudden changes, martial preferment, unbridled statements or writings, secret bad habits and judicial sentences. [2]

The influence of the Hyades is that of a staggering increase of sexual urge and self-preservation, which could lead to greediness, sexuality, a dissolute life, excessive and licentious ways, and a striving for prestige leading to power politics. If this tendency is bridled, an increase in the positive sense can lead to tremendous success in life.

When the pinnacle of the career is reached, the danger appears that the inherent nature may come again to the fore and may, if uncontrolled, lead to failure and fall from power. With a connection to the Hyades, it is doubly important that power and strength must not be used to exploit other human beings. [3]

With Moon: Tactful, fair ability, difficulties connected with writings, may forge the name of employer or friend but finally escape punishment and retain position, liable to sickness and disgrace, the danger of blindness or eye injuries. [1]

Mentally active, can be diplomatic when it suits, not too careful to substantiate statements or claims with known facts. High advancement in science and other matters, mainly dealing with the public. There is the possibility of violence and of becoming ‘involved’ unnecessarily. [2]

Generally, the Moon in Taurus Constellation gives steady emotions with a determined, conservative and ambitious nature. However, the harsh aspects of this Full Moon could make you very stubborn, too conservative, sensual and fun-loving, overly possessive, smug, arrogant, grasping, jealous and possessive. [2]

Full Moon November 2023 Meaning

The strongest influence on the Full Moon in November 2023 astrology comes from the Moon opposite Mars. It brings passionate desires but also irritability, impulsiveness and emotional volatility. The star in the Hyades increases sexual desire and the risk of accidents and violence.

A square to Saturn restricts self-expression and delays the attainment of desires and goals, causing frustration and sadness. The ability for sustained effort is hampered by Mars square Saturn and the T-square aspect pattern.

The Moon square Saturn reinforces the stubbornness and rigidity of the Full Moon in Taurus constellation. So, regulating your energy and focusing on achieving your goals with patience and self-discipline is essential. This is also indicated by Saturn at the apex of the T-square.

The confusing and deceptive influence of Mercury square Neptune must also be considered. It significantly impacts the Full Moon astrology because it is an applying aspect with an orb of only 0°13′.

Deliberate or unintentional miscommunication will exacerbate the frustration and anger caused by the T-square. This increases the risk of impulsive actions, conflict and violence, particularly of domestic violence.

Moon Phases

The influence of the November 27 Full Moon lasts for two weeks up to the December 12 New Moon. Astrologically, a Full Moon is influenced by the preceding New Moon. The November 13 New Moon aligned with Mars. So, like the Full Moon, it encourages you to harness your energy through hard work to achieve your goals.

But the New Moon was also opposite Uranus. This creates a struggle to control aggressive and impulsive urges. So again, like the Full Moon, patience, self-discipline and flexibility are needed to avoid reckless behavior, instability and conflict.

If the Full Moon November 2023 astrology directly impacts your horoscope decan, you can read about it in your monthly horoscope. For more detail about how it affects your natal chart, see full moon transits.

  1. Thank you, Jamie.
    I just got home after a twilight walk to the store and back, and the gibbous (~94% full) Moon and Jupiter were already rising well above the skyline.

    This will be a critical Full Moon to the ceasefire in Gaza. I hope nobody does anything to jeopardize the pause.

    I think Mars square Saturn is not good for volcano activity either. Mt. Etna is spouting again, and poor Iceland is teetering on an eruption maybe too.

    As per the UK’s Independent:
    {“A warning over the risks of emerging magma and the persistent likelihood of an imminent eruption of the Icelandic volcano has been issued by the country’s Met Office.

    In its latest update, the forecaster warned: “The likelihood of a volcanic eruption at some location along the length of the magma intrusion persists.” It added that the area between Hagafell and Sýlingarfell still faces the possibility that ‘magma could emerge’.”}

    I don’t expect any sudden new volcanic events or earthquakes (I hope), but Gaia is not happy.

    I will definitely apply the unsuppressed energy to some physical projects – like decorating for Christmas! Happy holidays, Jamie and the regulars! Celebrate what you want.

  2. My Sun and IC are 4.52 and 5 Gemini, i am stuck, frustrated, overworked and very sad. I can’t sleep. Oncoming exact Saturn square does not sound optimistic.

  3. Natal Gemini moon Work stress Impulsive thoughts for certain everything you wrote seems to be happening right now omg

  4. Venus in its Luciferus phase at the Full Moon. A very bright object I might add, having seen it the last few mornings.

    At the Full Moon asteroid Amaterasu opposite natal Venus.

    As a Hesperus Venus, evening star, my Venus emotional and value temperment is at odds with the raging conjunctions, squares and oppositions we’ve been experiencing…. it’s been a frustration, from a Venus perspective

  5. In this full moon mars is on dschubba, and mercury both on lesath and shaula. These fixed stars are difficult too…

  6. Yeah gerald i agree with you that we have very difficult moon phases since october that are mainly mars-influenced…not good for venusian people but on the other hand a chance for these to help finding compromises and negotiations playing out their venusian talents…

  7. Well, I am past frustration. I was more like struggling with the thing that follows, madness. Still dealing with contractors, they were making me feel like I was nuts. So I got me some simple monitoring tools for myself to evaluate the situation, and I think I found a contractor I can trust to fix the problem. He’s not a snow job on an old lady kinda guy. But yes, focusing on other projects and goals is like a vacation. That work is good.

  8. Oh yeah, I think I am feeling the mercury Neptune thing though. So much projects. A to-do list is very helpful at this time to maintain my focus.

  9. It turns out that I’m a Venus morning star after all. Must be all that Amaterasu energy that came out of no-where. Unfortunately that makes the Venus self examination astrology a frustrating Duddly.


    In the Lunar Return chart for 2023-2024, Amaterasu conjunct the Nadir. I read an analogy, the record EEV cosmic rays particle akin to a brick falling waist high on your toe, and a point of interest: not all news servers used this metaphor. But it fits the astrology of the Lunar Return.

  11. This exchange with Amaterasu reminds me of a book …

    The Secret Language of Relationships, by Goldschneider and Elffers.. “how astrology can craft a relationship profile between any two individuals born during any two weeks of the year. The result is an indispensable guide to getting the most out of every relationship” Amazon

    Amaterasu, would be a Lover, whereas birthdays outside the two week November 27 window, would have other attributes predominant, such as Marriage or Friend.

  12. The two week windows re-occur throughout the year. For Instance, in my case, 10 sections Lover, 8 sections Marriage, 8 sections Friend. And the authors use a ranking system, best to worst. It’s a helpful tool especially when moving through critical phases in life. Sometimes the two of you are best suited for Combat, something to think about if you’re a journalist hack reporting on wars, or in consultations$ with government foreign service corp.

  13. Haha paul bryan ferry so decadent/androgyn “do the szrand” Ah these glam rockers i loved them…🤣🙋🌠🎇☮️🎆🌈

  14. Like bowie, the sweet and all these teenage rampage glitter bands…uranus/neptune on earth…but only in music cuz saturn is true ruler on earth…cuz you cannnot press the infinite into limitations…

  15. ‘People almost invariably arrive at their beliefs not on the basis of proof but on the basis of what they find attractive.’

    ‘De l’Art de persuader’ (‘On the Art of Persuasion’)”. Book by Blaise Pascal, 1658

  16. Par cela, j’échange le pseudonyme et le nom propre mais je garde la même image, et vous et Jojo prouvez négativement la dernière installation artistique.

  17. I can’t think of anything I believe in. I like some stuff, but that’s not believing. I imagine that something will be a certain way but I can’t say that is believing. Even astrology, I can’t say I believe in it. Just that it’s a darn handy tool. I think I am a bad follower. I just can’t believe what some would have me believe.

  18. Hi vic jupiter is not your friend i guess ? But dont worry stay askimg and douting if thats your way and no one has the right to force you believing if thats your way and who you are .. astrology and psychology ars not the way to transform you into anothrr human beeing that that who YOU are…so dont worry you’re ok 🙋👍One the other hand every “change” has its time and if the right time has not come then it will not happen…your soul decides not the soul of others…

  19. Paul, beside your oftenly sophisticated, “artistic” and not outpoken intellectualisms your are right that we attract opinions that fit for us. This is part of so called esoteric “law of attraction”…

  20. …or otherwise you can buy yr opinion in the mainstream supermarket…even astrologically…🤣😁 Oh…this pluralism…

  21. Hey Klaus, I don’t know if Jupiter is less a friend than any of my other pkanetary conditions. In Virgo with my sun so everything is questioned like Virgo is prone to do. To me sag is more the seeker, the traveler, on a journey. I think Jupiter belief you may have more to do with its being co-ruler if Pisces? I just have to follow my heart. It’s not a belief just it’s gotta feel right. Jupiter sextile moon? I could go on and on. But speaking of soul, my natal NN is in Sag. I am a traveler in time. Since my NN has progressed to scorpio, I am more like tunneling through time.

  22. The full moon conjuncted Kissinger’s natal sun. From the NYT:

    Mr. Obama noted toward the end of his presidency that he had spent much of his tenure trying to repair the world that Mr. Kissinger left. He saw Mr. Kissinger’s failures as a cautionary tale.
    “We dropped more ordnance on Cambodia and Laos than on Europe in World War II,” Mr. Obama said in an interview with The Atlantic in 2016, “and yet, ultimately, Nixon withdrew, Kissinger went to Paris, and all we left behind was chaos, slaughter and authoritarian governments that finally, over time, have emerged from that hell.”
    Mr. Obama noted that while in office he was still trying to help countries “remove bombs that are still blowing off the legs of little kids.”

  23. Hi vic i agree with you – follow yr heart…virgos are said to be much mote sceptical than sags and if you have bad juppi than twice.

  24. And baba obama naja….i always wonder how american politicians get peace nobel prize for making war…so putin should get it too…🤣🙄🤔🤐

  25. Gemini full moon. Gemini always seems to be walking mass of contradictions. Could just be my take. Like my magnetic attraction to Gemini moon men conj my SN. It was there alright, but not in the real. Non functional in the day to day.

  26. Darn. I wrote this detailed articulate description and when I hit “Reply” I was confronted by a message saying “Invalid security token”. Something about WordPress has gone weird on me…

    Ok, so here I go again.

    During this time, I had a heavy fall. Maybe linked with my natal Mars at 8 Gemini (at Aldebaran, 7th house). My head hit the very sharp edge of a tile (it happened in the bathroom and the floor was hard too), with a loud crack and there was blood in my hair.
    But I didn’t go into a state of shock, and never got a headache either then or later, just a lump on my scalp. No bruising at all anywhere, not even the next day.
    Who or what was protecting me??

    I hope I’m not just going numb…

  27. Thanks for bringing up Aldebaran. Read your article on it. My only connection is natal sextile to Eris. But it squares my sun Jupiter. I don’t know if I am saying this right, but I have to stay in my lane going slow and steady. I don’t get away with short cuts. It takes work. I understand I now live in a world where right is wrong and wrong is right, but I have to hold to trusting in doing the right thing. If I short cut I will get zapped in a not good way.

  28. Oh geez, it echoes that Alioth thing again. I wonder if there are lessons or I should say understanding in fixed stars aspects to each other. I say understanding because your fixed star area of expertise brings much understanding to me.

  29. Thank you for that comment about Archangel Michael, Jamie. It adds quite a bit of an extra nuance to my chart.
    Also thanks for your comment, Vic. Supposedly the fixed stars “cast no rays” or however they put it, but it seems to me that the Archangel stars do influence via other aspects than ONLY conjunctions and very occasionally via oppositions. Or perhaps ALL aspects should be applied when using any of them? What do you say, Jamie?

  30. Japan Earthquake New Years day 2024, Wajima, 2:10 am, Synastry with Frustrating-Confusing Full Moon.


    The Solar and Lunar eclipse series has built up a considerable energy of worry and concern, frustration and confusion; where it carries through to the end of the year, and finally a crystallization, fortunate, in a part of the planet that knows how to deal with abuse of this matter.

    Notice the Sun quincunx Jupiter, moves to Sun trine Jupiter.

  31. Japan earthquake New years day 2024, time corrected, 4:10pm local


    The grand square is not as compelling, but the transit Moon is within orb and the grand Earth trine is known to make things tremble.

    asteroid 360 Carlova, not much is known about its discovery origins, March 11, 1893, conjunct Pallas. Mars conjunct Galactic centre; driving the point home of a connection to March 11, 2011.
