Full Moon in Taurus at 8 degrees, 31st October 2020.
Revolutionise your life!
The Full Moon in Taurus is exactly conjoined together with the planet Uranus, the great awakener at the same degree and will be shaking and waking us up, putting new perspectives and flashes of insights into all Venus-ruled areas of love, harmony, beauty, creativity and finance.
With Uranus so prominent there is a revolutionary feel in the air. Helping to initiate change and new beginnings and to celebrate our uniqueness, our individuality.
Uranus awakens everything it touches, it’s as if a light switch is turned on, one you didn’t even know was there. Sudden, abrupt, and immediate and without warning. Awakening to your real emotional wants and needs. A wake-up call. Sudden insights, inspiration, even ideas of genius are possible now.
It has the potential to stop you in your tracks and take you by surprise. truths can suddenly be revealed. This energy is unpredictable and we can have a sudden, inexplicable urge to break out and do something adventurous, daring and different.
Expect the unexpected from yourself and others.
There is an urge to break through any restraints from within or without that have been holding us back from freedom. Now is the time for change
Its time to express the infinitely magnificent being that you are, that can never be put in a box, category, or kept small to simply live up to other people’s expectations. Uranus together with the full moon reminds us that we are here to grow and evolve beyond all limitations within and without. And that true freedom starts from within.
We may be experiencing sleepless nights now, irritability and feelings of restlessness. It’s time to do something extraordinary and break away from routine and channel the energy in a positive way.
The Scorpio Sun in opposition to the Moon in Taurus shines a light onto our emotions and subconscious mind. It will suddenly become apparent to us just where we feel there is a lack of, imbalance, and perhaps, more importantly, we will suddenly be able to see why.
It’s time to look deeper, shine a light into the shadows and transform one another with truth.
The Full Moon takes place on the night of Halloween , while highly charged by Uranus, there is also a deep, mystical meaning, Scorpio season is a time to embrace cycles of life, death, consequence, and deep transformation.
The ancient Celts believed that the veil between the worlds of the living and the dead was at its thinnest during Samhain (Halloween), thereby making it the ideal time to communicate with the deceased and to divine the future. On the night of October 31st, they celebrated Samhain, when it was believed that the ghosts of the dead returned to earth.
Scorpio is the sign that confronts us with our mortality and in many ways, the Taurus-Scorpio axis is the most spiritually transformative sign of the zodiac as Scorpio ultimately demands that we evolve and transform from within as this is the true meaning and purpose of life.
At the end of life, how far we have evolved and the love in our hearts is all that matters.
“In the end, only three things matter: how much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of the things not meant for you.” – Buddhist saying.
At a deeper level, Taurus-Scorpio teaches us that true inner security is all that remains when ultimately everything else is taken away. When we only have ourselves to rely on. Have we cultivated our spirituality, inner sense of self-worth, strength and love? Do we feel empowered with a deep faith and trust in life and ourselves that will carry us through anything that life may throw in our path?
When we know we can rely upon and trust ourselves fully in any situation our fears and unhealthy attachments will fall away.
Venus is the ruling planet of the Full Moon and is in the relationship sign of Libra. We will become aware at this full moon how there is an imbalance in matters of love in our relationships and to ourselves. The Scorpio ruled theme of power will come up for review, are we feeling empowered or giving our power away?
Mercury in Libra currently retrograde will be focused on gaining clarity in our relationships. The balance of scales represents Libra. We must at first correct the balance within before we can bring more peace, harmony and balance into our outer world. Where has there been an imbalance within yourself, between too much or too little independence, self-assertiveness, or lack of love in your life including self-love? Or has there been too much love, putting the other always before your own needs, resulting in a feeling of lost independence and freedom?
The strong Venus energies give us the gift of self-love and worth, reminding us that we don’t have to earn love from others because you can’t earn what you already have. You came from love; you are love.
Start loving and living now. No longer feed the inner voice of lack, claiming you’re not enough.
Both Scorpio and Taurus are fixed signs, and their love can turn into the possessive kind. Uranus, the planet of freedom urges us to find the right balance. The balancing of both signs can help us to find peace by releasing the need for attachment and possession as well as emotionally and materialistically and can, therefore, find security from within, through the polar sign of Scorpio. Who can bestow self-realisation and psychological knowledge of himself which ultimately leads to Empowerment.
A fixed sign, therefore resistant to change and personal evolution, Taurus finds peace by letting go and trusting in the transformative process of life that Scorpio teaches, and so find his way to enlightenment and inner peace. To Awaken to a new yearning for not just physical and materialistic nourishment but spiritual as well.
Any changes that we have been resisting out of fear or because we were putting others first, worrying what others may think while trying to fulfill their idea of how we should be, will no longer have power over us.
Adding extra power and dynamic, is Mars in Aries retrograde, together with the Sun in Scorpio who excavates deep, getting to the truth of any matter, sudden insights and revelations that have been hidden from us, perhaps even for years, can become apparent giving us the potential to free ourselves from outdated beliefs, inner and outer constraints and self-imposed emotional bondage.
Uranus gives us the power of self-awareness, insight and therefore more emotional intelligence. To see our love life and relationships to others from a fresh new and exciting perspective, you will suddenly not only know what your wants and needs are but see the solutions too, helping us to evolve to a higher level of awareness in our relationships as well as to ourselves
Love, beauty and all things bright and beautiful are in focus; we can bring fresh, exciting wind into everything Venus-ruled, especially our relationships, creativity, art and finances. We can suddenly feel the urge to beautify our surroundings and the way we look. Venus in Libra instills in us a desire to honor our inner and outer beauty. Break out and try new things that will enhance your joy and pleasure factor.
An important message of this Full Moon is: we can only experience real love if we have the freedom to be ourselves. The freedom to be you in love. Love and freedom aren’t mutually exclusive; they are interdependent, two sides of the same coin. True freedom starts within.
We can get the balance right to achieve more peace, beauty, harmony, and love in our lives as Venus in Libra offers us the gift of diplomacy and the art of compromise to correct any imbalance with others.
“The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You trade in your sense for an act. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask. There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level. It’s got to happen inside first.”-Jim Morrison
