Taurus Full Moon: The Dark Night of the Soul

"Scorpio is a secretive sign. Why? Because when a Scorpio tells everything, it usually scares the crap out of everyone around. So Scorpio learns to hold energy in; In fact there's a power in Scorpio, which has to do with the power of the 'hidden.'" -Rick Levine

The Full Moon culminates at the 12th degree of Taurus, marking a period of rest, recharging and also pleasure. So eat, sleep and be merry in your own private world as we adjust to the weather changing and replenish our energetic reservoir. Simultaneously, there is an energy of agitation. We want to rest, but what is making it difficult to do so?

The Ruler of Taurus, Venus, is being challenged by Uranus, indicating a feeling of limitation that we no longer wish to endure. With Uranus, there could be an urge to break free at any cost... the unrelenting desire to walk away unapologetically in the name of your truth. Particularly so for Libras and Tauruses. It might not make sense logically, but heed the call. What is making you feel stuck? Uranus is asking that we change something so that we can be more comfortable LATER. 

The Sun is in Scorpio this time every year, marking a time to go within. As nature begins to "fall" away, we are reminded of the subtle, unseen forces of existence that indeed, one day everything dies. This, of course, can be deeply psychological and introspective. It's a time when we may be less social, knowing that a fun summer is behind us and a joyous holiday season before us. 

However, this particular Scorpio season is a quadruple montage of Jupiter, Mercury and soon to be Venus and Mars too! Hugh Hefner died at the Pluto Station, which sparked the unraveling of a veil shrouding the legacy of both sexual liberation AND oppression. And thus the conversation began, leading to big reveals of perversion and abuse in Hollywood and even in our own personal worlds. It should be noted that Jupiter is both the magnifying glass, enlarging things so that we can improve upon, and also "the great benefic." That's right, he's supposed to be like Santa Claus, bringing lots of gifts and blessings. And he is, but first we must see the things we've been sweeping under the rug. 

Pandora’s box has been opened and now there’s no looking back.

It may feel like you are lost right now. Things have welled up to the surface for you to see. The good news is that your path may soon become more clear. We can't see it right now because Jupiter is "under the beams" of the Sun. AKA,  when an object is too close to the Sun, we can't see it. As the month of November goes on, we will receive more clarity on what to do next.

“You enter the forest

at the darkest point,

where there is no path.

Where there is a way or path,

it is someone else's path.

You are not on your own path.

If you follow someone else's way,

you are not going to realize

your potential.” 

― Joseph Campbell, The Hero's Journey: Joseph Campbell on His Life & Work
