This month’s blue Full Moon takes place at 8 degrees TAURUS on 31 October at 10:49 AM EST.
In Taurus we can fixate, in the best possible way, on the beauty and the nurture of the world we create within and experience without.
We can fixate on self care and on what we value in our lives. These can be actual things- food, sleep, the right body cream to be absorbed into much-washed hands.
We can also fixate on thoughts and ideas that nurture us, comfort us and make us feel better.
Taurus is learning to value itself in all levels.
With the Sun in Scorpio, we see how sharing with others-resources, kindness, ideas, support can lift us up and encourage us to carry on.
The Taurus full Moon reminds us that charity, love and empowerment all begin in the home - in our own heads and hearts.
Taurus likes concrete, earthly reminders of love and beauty – flowers in the garden, the variety of vibrant color in autumn leaves, the aroma of a meal rich in flavor and nutrients.
This full Moon is exactly conjunct retrograde Uranus in Taurus. Uranus highlights our need for individuals to take personal responsibility for their own individuation, their own ideas, their own actions.
The Moon in Taurus conjunct Uranus reminds us we are responsible for our own emotional body and the thoughts and actions that spring from that emotional body.
Parents, government, teachers, the media and our friends are involved in their own issues and journeys.
We must have our own best interest at heart first.
That is how we can embody the truth of who we are and, in turn, radiate the actions and energies that are truest and most useful for each one of us.
Taurus and Scorpio are practical. They want to find what is useful. Taurus, especially, wants to optimize its energy for the maximum gain with the minimum expenditure for the best outcome.
This starts, with Taurus full Moon conjunct retrograde
Uranus with time spent going within. Seated/walking/standing/taking a bath meditations – whichever works. Connecting with the Higher Self that is with us every moment of every day and every night can be the most effective and enriching path to right thought, right action and best outcomes.
We have but to ask our Higher Self to Guide us to the best thoughts and actions — the best way to talk to a friend or family about a sticky situation. The best route to the grocery store, the best food to eat for optimal health.
This is the time to start recognizing the inner voice that wants to speak to us, wants to guide us on matters large and small. We all have a Higher Self, an invisible friend, who is waiting to hear- just from us.
Start with the small matters – do I walk or drive? Do I order from this store or that? Do I call my mother now or in two hours?
Ask and listen.
Mercury is retrograde in Libra squaring Jupiter/Pluto/Saturn in Capricorn and widely opposing Retrograde Mars in Aries at this full Moon.
The wisdom and direction come from within at this time – at all times – but especially now.
Mercury resumes forward motion on 3 November. Mars resumes forward motion on 14 November at 15 degrees Aries. Mars is the foot soldier of Scorpio’s ruler, Pluto.
The relationship with Mercury retrograde in Libra is with the powerful Higher Self which can expand the life and can give a better structure to the life. This leads to more economical action, more fruitful action, more valuable action.
The Sun is in Scorpio. It is time to know our own power, to make a relationship with our own power, to gather that power, and where and when appropriate, as guided by the Higher Self, to use that power for personal good and for the good of the whole. Make a willing and comfortable home for your power in the body, heart, and mind.
Express the power with self love and care. The time is now for personal evolution and empowerment via the limitless love and attention of Source.
Brew up something beautiful and delicious. 🧙
A Good Samhain to you all.🖤🌕🖤
Happy Halloween. 🎃
