We are building toward the full moon in Taurus this evening at 5:05pm. The full moon is representative of the completion of the building cycle of the waxing moon that began at the new moon, but it is also illumination, as the sun fully illuminates the moon at this time. If we view the sun as the light of consciousness and the moon as the subconscious and emotions, we can think of this time as bringing to light or revealing something that was previously hidden to us. The full moon always is a juxtaposition between the sign the sun is in and the sign the moon is in, so with this moon, the light of the sun is coming from Scorpio, illuminating the moon in Taurus.
Taurus is ruled by Venus, who has just been on her retrograde journey through the underworld, meeting her shadow self and being reborn as the morning star. Venus represents the value of self as well as comfort, beauty, sensuality, money, possessions, and love. The moon, representative of our emotions, is sitting in Taurus and we may find ourselves wanting to indulge in the good things in life.
But the light that is illuminating this sensual full moon is coming from Scorpio. Scorpio represents the depths of our being. Saturn, the teacher has just recently finished his 3 year transit of Scorpio, and during that time we’ve likely had subconscious beliefs, thought patterns, fear-based thinking and/or old wounds come up for evaluation and release. Venus plunged into her underworld journey this summer, again calling attention to our shadows and challenging us to see all of ourselves and value ourselves. Then September’s full moon eclipse on the Aries/Libra axis illuminated how that work that we had done (or maybe not done) on our inner selves was manifesting in relationships. October’s new moon followed in Libra, giving us a chance to set a new intention around harmony, balance and cooperation in relationships. Now the full moon in Taurus says enjoy what you have created in relationships. Surround yourself with friends, food, beauty, and love.
At the same time, the light shining from Scorpio may be illuminating for you anything that is still blocking you from realizing the comforts symbolized by the Taurus/Venus moon. Is there anything in your psyche that is still keeping you from seeing all of the blessings that surround you? Are you looking at your life through a filter of a past trauma or negative belief? If so, the full moon can aid in this realization. The waning moon for the next two week period is for release, and then the next new moon will be in Scorpio. This provides us with the opportunity to set new intentions for our life around what was just realized and released with this cycle.
As we move into this full moon, take this opportunity to look around you, look at your life, and see all of the beauty and blessings that surround you every day. Make time to enjoy your life and be in gratitude for what you do have. Focus on what you are grateful for. If you find your focus shifting to something that you feel is lacking, use the moon to illuminate what belief that is originating from inside of you and use the next two week period to release that and create your new belief and your new experience of life with the next new moon. In this way, you consciously create your life.
