Here is an astrological Power polarity- Scorpio and Taurus.
These fixed signs will get things done. The deep desire for transformation and the intense drive to survive and thrive allows us to commit to our own evolution.
Venus, ruler of Taurus continues Retrograde motion until November 16.
The Taurus Full Moon is in opposition to Venus at 4 degrees Scorpio.
The way we feel about relationships, historically, is up for review and transformation.
Perhaps we will dream about the one we left behind, didn’t choose long term, the one who left us.
We have an opportunity see another facet of the story. Perhaps we have been romanticizing a dynamic that wasn’t, in retrospect, for our best and highest development or happiness.
Perhaps going a different route at that time has lead us to wonderful unfoldment.
Perhaps we wouldn’t have wanted to miss the relationship that came next – the one with the self or with another.
Taurus is a very instinctual sign and we can look at how our instinct for our own care, development, value, time, education, health, prosperity lead us to make the choices we make in our relationships to ourselves and others.
The Venus retrograde can help us to review where we’ve been in regard to those choices. We have an opportunity to forgive ourselves and others for the choices we’ve made that have lead to the unfoldment we consequently experienced. The review can be bittersweet.
The Sun and Venus are in Scorpio. Scorpio in the guise of the Phoenix is willing to dive into the fire of transformation in order to be reborn in its next stronger, wiser, more connected iteration. It takes courage to be willing to take that dive. Scorpio sometimes skitters backward from the ledge.
It doesn’t dive — yet. It wants all to be revealed and fears what could be the all consuming flash of Source’s revelation.
The Venus retrograde can help it see what has and hasn’t “worked” in the past and that review can build courage to go for what comes next.
Taurus is learning self reliance. It is delving into the relationship with itself, sometimes to the exclusion of all else.
Scorpio is learning to share resources — the “many hands make light work” approach… or at least, the “if you find my startup, I can get it off the ground” approach.
Taurus wants to know it can do it under its own steam. For Scorpio, sharing resources is part of the adventure.
In Evolutionary Astrology, Libra is learning about itself through relationship.
Scorpio, is learning through Union — marriage, consummation. The Lovers card in tarot shows the third entity that is created when we have a deep connection with another – the overnighting being that holds the blueprint for what will be created together with another.
With the full Taurus Moon and Sun in Scorpio we feel our own blueprint.
We look to what that angelic presence could feel like that is created in relationship with others.
Allowing a consideration of the divine/our higher self into equations is invited now.
We are at different places on the polarity between Taurus and Scorpio depending on which relationship we are considering.
We even may bring a different aspect of our being to each one of our relationships.
We can return home to ourselves in Taurus, and feel the baseline of our being, review who and how we are with others.
We can see what we give, where we react, respond and meet the other.
Are my relationships in line with what and how and who I value?
Rumination is done by bovine creatures. Retrogrades are a time for a bit of rest and rumination.
The veil between the worlds is thin at this time. Feel what is at the outer reaches of the field. We are so much more than we let on.
Nearly at Samhain, Blessed Be All.
