We are currently building to our Full Moon in Taurus, which will be exact at 11:51pm on November 14th here in Brisbane (AEST).
The Need to Feel Grounded, Safe and Materially Secure
Taurus is a sign associated with sensuality, stability, comfort, security and the Earth (literally the ground beneath our feet).
Often dubbed as “the earthiest of the Earth signs”, Taurus is concerned with putting down roots, material comfort and permanence and those with Taurus strong in their charts often crave a sense of grounding, steadiness and safety.
The Call To Transformation: Do You Need To Let Go Of Self-Destructive Habits?
Taurus is also representative of the physical body and sensual delight.
With the Sun falling in the polar opposite sign of Scorpio you may want to ask yourself if you are looking after your body to your best ability or does your self care warrant a transformation?
The New Moon, which fell in Scorpio on 31st October carried deep and powerful energy that could have been put to good use in making those needed changes.
Have you been called to transform something in your life?
With the Black Moon (currently in Scorpio) conjunct the Sun at this Full Moon some of us may be called to confront some self-destructive habits that keep us locked in a sense of powerlessness.
Remember that the build up to a Full Moon can often bring up energy that is no longer serving us, which is calling to be released.
What do you need to relinquish?
Taurus energy may find us wanting to hold onto bad habits that we are emotionally tied to; especially around food, money and self-indulgence, so be mindful of any prompts or occurrences that bring this to your attention.
Remember also that ignoring the need for change can lead to a feeling of being stuck and victimised.
Is it really worth it?
Transformation and Growth Through Relationships
On a another note,this Full Moon is ruled by Venus and is disposited by Jupiter in Libra, so be open to the higher message if you are going through relationship difficulties.
What is requiring growth and transformation between you?
What are you no longer willing to tolerate and are you both willing to do the work?
Black Moon energy can highlight suppression and her connection with the Sun may find you finally speaking out about the darker side of your relationship; perhaps in relation to power plays, deep psychological issues, shared intimacy/resources or negative behaviours.
Opening To Abundance and Self Worth
The Sabian Symbol for the degree of the Full Moon (Taurus 23) is: “A Jewellery Shop Filled With The Most Magnificent Jewels” quite apt for the theme of beautifying oneself, one’s surroundings or one’s possessions in some way.
Are you honouring your worth?
Any transformation can take patience, perseverance and stamina (all positive Taurean qualities).
If you’re feeling put off by that, remember that the end result is almost always worth the effort.
Usually others will compliment you on those changes, which can lead to a feeling of well-being and contentment, as all your hard work is reflected back at you.
Are you being the best that you can be?
Have you been beautifying something this month?
Alternatively, you may have been called to make changes that relate to your resources.
Fruition – What Is Coming Into Bloom?
What did you begin around 31st October and how is it now looking?
October’s New Moon held promise for the creatives, musicians and for those adept at tapping into their intuition.
If that related to you, perhaps you have a project that is due for fruition under this Full Moon.
Relating This Full Moon To Your Personal Birth Chart
Remember to look where 22 degrees and 37 seconds of Taurus falls within your natal chart.
Is there a Taurean theme (beauty, physical manifestation, safety, the ability to provide, sensuality, material security) being illuminated for you at this time around that house placement (area of life)?
Has something in that area been requiring change?
