Essential Awareness and Devotional Appreciation- Taurus Full Moon November 6, 2014 2:23 p.m. PST

Full Moon in Taurus, Venus in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces

The very sensual Earth sign Taurus is very practical and hardworking,  values physical comfort , security,  nurturing the family, preserving hearth and home, the satisfaction of a job well done and  pleasures such as  an affectionate hug or a well-prepared meal, the aroma of a flower, the sound of the wind and the beauty of nature. Taurus can teach us the importance of being grounded and the benefits of taking  a step-by-step approach to getting things done. When the Moon is in Taurus we are invited to slow down. To simplify.  To appreciate. To savor.

The Sun transiting through Scorpio illuminates the deeper parts of ourselves, the veil is thin and it is a time of shedding  anything that has outlived its value or meaning in our lives. This fixed water sign represents the process of transformation, purification, death and rebirth, regeneration, composting etc. and is skilled in getting to the very deepest truth about anything, including ourselves if we are willing to enter into the darkness which is where , ironically, we actually encounter the light. Scorpio understands that life can get  very messy and loves getting down to the nitty gritty of things, breaking taboos and connecting deeply and intimately.

A Full Moon always represents the peak of the cyclical relationship between the Sun (whose journey through the zodiac is one year) and the Moon (28 1/2 days) and is an aspect  that we call an opposition as the two are 180 degrees from each other. It’s offering is  the potential for  awareness and clarity. Taurus and Scorpio can be especially concerned with values, both personal and collective. Which relationships, activities, possessions, habits, etc are really working for me/us? Does everything I am doing have meaning and relevance? Is it sustainable and true to my/our values? We have the opportunity for profound intimacy and connection when we are aware of and express openly and honestly the nature of our own personal truth, and also more likely to have our needs met in a satisfying manner. We are taking responsibility.

With transiting Neptune in it’s own sign of Pisces and Venus currently in Scorpio very prominent in this lunation, our capacity for devotional expression and deep appreciation are highlighted. We can experience in very visceral and sensual  ways, the Divine that resides in all things and all beings. In appreciation, build an altar with your beloved, chant or sing your praises to nature, do a Gratitude dance that your most basic needs and deepest desires are satisfied at a core level. There is magic in the air!

Thank you for listening.
