“Get yourself grounded and you can navigate even the stormiest roads in peace.” Steve Goodier


Revelations are possible, now, with a Full Moon in “grounded” Taurus occurring, today (5:23 pm EST), at 14 degrees, 26 minutes of the sign. Full Moons, literally and symbolically, shed more light on our path and also signify matters coming to a head or culmination. The peak awareness that is culled from a Full Moon is also thought to set into motion a “period of release,” similar to when the autumn leaves reach their peak color and then, shortly thereafter, drop from the trees. We also want to let go of, now, and for the next two weeks, those elements which are no longer serving us or that have outlived their usefulness to us.

Taurus, a fixed earth sign, is all about the world of form or substance. It is in Taurus, where we learn to fully appreciate the charms and allure of the physical body and also where we delight in experiencing the richness of the five senses. A Full Moon in Taurus can, ideally, spawn greater awareness of what we may need to add, or what we may need to subtract from our lives, now, in order to make them more joyful and pleasurable. Jane Austen once wrote, “Every moment has its pleasures and its hope.” All we have to do is find a way to ferret out this potential in our daily lives. Too, it has been shown that having warm feelings can also alter our body chemistry, in a positive way, by helping to release oxytocin, a hormone that can reduce blood pressure and cortisol associated with stress.

With this Full Moon, we may also glean fresh insights into how to best stabilize or anchor our world, keeping in mind that, the symbol for Taurus is the Bull, an animal that always has its feet planted firmly on the ground. Experiencing ownership of resources is also vital to the Taurus psyche, as is the preservation of whatever is accumulated. Too, what we end up “attracting to us” is largely rooted in our values, which Taurus also represents. This Full Moon is an excellent time to get clearer about what it is that we value, or want more of in our life. When we also learn to align our actions around our values, life can become a whole lot easier, as well as much more fulfilling. With the Sun in opposing Scorpio, the sign of shared resources, we may also have more of a need, now, to figure out a way to balance or mesh our values with the values of others.

This Full Moon finds “sweet” Venus, the lunation’s ruler, still in a conjunction with the purposeful Sun. Overall, this is more of a softening influence that can make us more willing to be cooperative with others. Of course, with this conjunction taking place in “intense” Scorpio, it can also help connect us with our passions, or deepest cravings. “Assertive” Mars and “penetrating” Pluto are also trining the Full Moon from “ambitious” Capricorn, with Mars moving into an exact conjunction with Pluto, in just a few days. Mars-Pluto suggests that we we’re not going to budge much, from whatever it is that we’re pursuing, now, with Pluto, optimally, giving us more of a “laser-beam” focus on our goals. Let us not be content to wait and see what will happen, but give us the determination to make the right things happen.” Horace Mann.

Some things that we may want to release during this Full Moon: self-limiting beliefs about money and earning capacity; fears about not having enough; thoughts that we are what we have – that the key to our happiness lies outside of us; fear of change; feeling guilty about experiencing pleasure; feeling ashamed about our bodies.
