TAURUS FULL MOON – LIVING IN GRATITUDE
by Maya White
Fitting with not only the season, but also with the cool water sign of Scorpio, the full moon of October is traditionally called the ‘Full Frost Moon’.
Indeed, if you live in the far north, this will be your season of a hard frost; the one that changes the landscape from green to icy brown.
This year, however, Jupiter, Venus and Mars sitting together in Virgo invite you to celebrate in abundance, and to find the place of gratitude in your heart.
Renewal and Repair – Looking Back in Time
In a beautiful spiral of time, Venus and Jupiter are joined in the same degrees of the Uranus/Pluto conjunctions of the 1960’s – repairing, gracing, and blessing the energies that were initiated during those years. Venus and Jupiter, the benefics of astrology are helping to heal a wound that was opened up during the initiatory days of the 60’s.
The Fixed Axis
Scorpio and Taurus, the signs of this full moon live in the ‘fixed axis’ of astrology. All together there are 4 fixed signs; Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius. These 4 signs are all very different, but what they have in common is that they concentrate and solidify energy. And, it is through concentration and focus that gives the fixed signs power.
It is during the times of the fixed signs that things become consolidated, commitments are made and fulfilled. And, another benefit of the fixed axis signs is that your work will be long lasting.
This Taurus full moon is about creating something of substance. You may have to go the extra mile this week in order to manifest your project, but take a lesson from the freight train, another example for Taurus, once you get going, you become unstoppable.
Scorpio inspires you transformation; Taurus consolidates. You may have to get out of our own way and let the child of your imagination claim its breath of life.
Ghosts, Ghouls, and Goblins
We’re leading up to the Halloween season, and some people like this, and others don’t. Halloween is on a Saturday night this year, so, this energy being amplified. And, as Saturn and Neptune jockey into their long reaching square, this is an important time to think about energetic maintenance.
One of the shadow sides of Scorpio is self-destructive tendencies, so, it’s a good week to be mindful that the high, positive energy of Scorpio is that of the eagle, or the phoenix, and this is a great week to align with protective and positive avatars.
It’s gonna get very Scorpio like, and I’d just send out a reminder that energy is real; it does matter, and it’s a good time to be proactive keeping your field clear.
Your Cornucopia of Clarity
There is a lot you can do to maintain your energetic boundaries:
* Connect with the Angels and the Archangels
* Keep your home cleaned up and well organized
* Drink plenty of water; stay hydrated
* Eat right; you know, the good foods such as yummy pumpkin pie instead of corn candy
* Stay connected with pets, children, and loved ones
And, for sure . . . .
breathe deeply, and count your blessings . . . . .
