TAURUS FULL MOON
“As above, so below, as within, so without, as the universe, so the soul… ~ Hermes Trismegistus ~
The Full Moon arrives at 1 degree of Taurus on Wednesday, October 24 at 12:45 PM EDT.
We are once again at the pinnacle of another round of awakening. The Lunar cycle is a microcosm of the Solar cycle. It takes one complete year for the Earth to orbit the Sun taking us through the zodiac, whereas the Moon cycle takes approximately one month to orbit the Earth. Thus we have small cycles within large cycles. The small cycles are no less powerful than the large cycles. They are however, more immediate pertaining to our personal world. Needless to say, Lunar cycles fly by. We need to stay awake for them. They shed light upon the nuts and bolts of our daily lives and the qualities of relationships that inhabit our world.
Taurus The Bull, is a fixed feminine earth sign ruled by Venus. The archetypes of Taurus are The Builder, The Earth Spirit, The Musician, and The Quiet One. Taurus rules the qualities and characteristics of peacefulness, presence, mindfulness, determination, groundedness, values, self-value, aesthetic appreciation, security, engagement with and commitment to the earth, highly developed senses, and sensuality. As Taurus is the quintessential earth sign, it is highly attuned to the earth, acting as a steward and cultivator of life in it’s myriad forms.
Each lunation is highly complicated depending upon which planets are involved with the cycle. This particular Full Moon is mired with the complexity of tremendous intricacy. The multi-dimensional experience now available to us is deep and vast. Do not resist the journey, but rather, embark upon it. We are multi-dimensional beings living in a multi-dimensional universe.
At this time, the qualities of Taurus are both challenged, and yet, greatly needed. We must be fully engaged with them. We must embody them. The Bull is surefooted. This steadfastness is greatly compromised by other planetary activity which closely accompanies the Moon. Taurus’s groundedness can assist us through what may seem like the disassembly of some facet of our lives. Hold fast to the earth, for the instability of this lunation will rock us to our core. Taurus is tenacious. We can hold onto ourselves even though it may feel like a tornado has swept us up and taken us to the Land of Oz.
During the next three days, there are tremendous karmic opportunities. They may not appear as beneficent circumstances. Whatever appears or disappears will greatly serve your soul. There is unpredictability in the air. A sense of urgency, anxiety, and anticipation presides. Soon, we will have a revelation.
Wherever Taurus resides in your natal chart is an area that will undergo dramatic change. This will happen in such a way as to clear your path for a more veritable journey with what will now become an ever enhanced authentic self. From this time forward, we will express ourselves in no less a manner than veracious.
We have undergone extremely difficult lunar phases over the past 2 years. We have been catapulted into our soul’s evolution. Each lunation offers us another round in which to reassemble another piece of our life puzzle.
Uranus and Venus coupled with the Lunar Nodes are forming close partnerships to the Moon. It is within the realms of home, family, and relationships that these dramatic changes will most likely manifest. Uranus is the lightening rod that will electrify whatever it touches. It is the Great Awakener. Uranus shakes us up and moves us into our inherent nature; a nature that no longer subscribes to the rules and regulations of anyone or anything that has been dampening our lives. The Lunar Nodes present us with themes of the past; past lives as well as the life that is present. The Lunar Nodes point us toward our karmic curriculum. We have the advantage of deep karmic cleansing and reorientation toward the path less taken; our path.
Tune into your values. Live by them; for that is where security lies. Value yourself; for you are valuable. When we adhere to our values, a true and ardent life unfolds before us.
We are longing for order. In the grand scheme of life, there is chaos everywhere. Let us embrace that order is chaos and that chaos will order our lives.
TAURUS FULL MOON BLESSINGS UPON YOU
“You must have chaos within you to give birth to a dancing star.” ~
“In chaos, there is fertility.” ~
“In the space between chaos and shape there was another chance.” ~
“I like it that order exists somewhere even if it shatters near me.” ~
The mantram of the astrologer is: AS ABOVE, SO BELOW. This is my prayer, my incantation; as I serve to translate the divine urging of this sacred juncture that is set before us.
The Super Full Moon arrives at 11 degrees of Taurus on Saturday, November 4 at 1:22 AM EDT.
Full Moons carry with them lore, magic, mystery, and sometimes even mayhem. These precious facets of life express themselves in our outer world as well as within our own interior. As we embrace this earthy sensual Full Moon in Taurus, we are reminded that the awakening of our true values is upon us. The full spectrum light of the Sun casts his glorious rays upon the Moon. The pie in the sky serves as a luminous telescopic lens focused precisely upon this point in time within our lives, appearing in a personal realm that is primed and ready for realization and awakening. This Full Moon is both grounded and expansive. So plant your feel on the ground and let your spirit soar!
As with all lunar cycles, there is a potpourri of planetary delights that mix together on one splendid table in which to dine from. Some planets may express in the form of something highly delectable, while others may present a sort of indigestion. Our attitudinal stance toward whatever we are facing will determine the quality of experience for our divine awakening.
As the Sun and the Moon face each other, we face ourselves. The cosmos is a reflection of our true nature within a sacred sector of the vast panorama of our lives.
While we are in the lunar season of Taurus, we meet it’s opposite sign; as we are at the same time in the solar season of Scorpio. Both are coupled within their very diametrically opposed expression. We are called to dive deeply within our psyches to meet and greet those neglected aspects and qualities of our inherent nature; for Scorpio rules all things felt deeply which are buried and hidden. When we embrace the dark side of our human nature, we discover the buried treasure of our inherent being. The Taurus Full Moon is assisting us with practical grounding and the provision of earthy human comfort throughout the healing process.
This Full Moon is most spectacular as it is a Super Moon, whose appearance will loom ever so large above the earth, exercising a more powerful influence upon us. The magnetic fields upon the earth are amplified as well as our own emotional state of being. Additionally, when the Moon is in Taurus, it is in what is known as an exaltation. While exalted, the expression of the Moon is endowed with highly evolved qualities of both the Moon and Taurus. Taking all of this into consideration, we are blessed with an extraordinary Full Moon!
As if this were not enough, Jupiter, the planet of expansion, optimism, faith, and enthusiasm, is deeply engaged with both Sun and Moon. We are graced with new vision and the opportunity to rise above all that has weighed us down. Hurting hearts gather reprieve at this time as unveiled wounds reveal the bounty of our true value.

Commune with the earth. Behold the splendor of the leaves. Welcome the nakedness of change.
We are leaving a period of time in which we have been communing deeply with the wounds of our soul. We have allowed them more fully into consciousness. Even wounds do not want to be left out. The Moon is the steward of our wounds. Release them to the Moon. Allow for their departure. They are angels who have just received their wings.
TAURUS FULL MOON BLESSINGS UPON YOU.
