Do you do menial work and wonder why you continue to do it?
November's Taurus full Moon falls smack on the last degree of Taurus on 21st November in the United States and the 22nd of November in Australia.

June's Sagittarius full Moon is a total lunar eclipse. Occurring on June 15 in the United States and June 16 in Australia, this is a relatively rare central eclipse, with the total eclipse lasting a long duration of around 100 minutes.
