It’s a Full Moon in Taurus and quite the pivotal Full Moon it is. The energies present can powerfully transform your life if you are willing to work with, rather than fight or deny them. With so much going on right now on the personal and global scenes, the Full Moon energies are mirroring for us ways in which we can assist the changes into a different experience.
We are working with the energies of Taurus (a very grounded, physical, sensual, earthy, nature-loving, artistic, resourceful, consistent and persistent sign that teaches us about value, self worth, and building anew) and Scorpio (an intensely transformational, deep – to the point of hidden, regenerative, healing, complex, mysterious, mystical, supernatural, sexual, and emotional sign that forces us to confront our fears and release what we have outgrown) during this Full Moon.
It’s no wonder why when you couple these two partnering energies there is a sense of impending “get things done” energy.
The Full Moon in Taurus offers you the opportunity to move through any stuck energies in your life and detach from everything toxic and unhealthy. It also provides the space to go within and get in touch with your deepest core and spiritual values that will support your emotional well being. Definitely a perfect time for purging on all fronts of everything that no longer serves your highest good. In turn, this affects the collective landscape of experience as well.
This is a great time to clean out, take stock of what you value, learn from, and thank and bless the things you let go of for what they have provided in your life. Concentrate your energies on your intentions with heart-commitment. This is a chance to transmute the old and release it so you are ready to accept the new. Doorways will open that were not present before, by embracing this natural metamorphosis that renews through the death cycle of letting go.
Taurus supports the empowering of personal power, as you learn what is worth building by examining all of the core values you operate from. Taurus also teaches you to be a responsible and loving steward of the Earth and to gently care for her as a mirror of our relationship to self and others – appreciating all she provides and interacting with her with healing love.
Taurus comes to us in Spring, symbolizing new birth, hope and promise of life, while Scorpio enters in the Fall to help us to confront our deepest fears experienced in life and to support their transformation so we can regain power through embracing this “death” of the old.
Scorpio helps us to see deeply in life and dive into our personal and collective unconscious to understand the hidden energies that are navigating our lives. It supports your understanding of how you relate to and share those values you discover with others and how these play out in your relationships over life and lives. Scorpio is about your emotional truth that can be uncomfortable to really look at with transparent honesty. During this Full Moon, you are being provided energy to help understand the emotional wounds so you can move into an experience of deeper intimacy in your relationships within and without – with yourself, with others, and with the Earth and Cosmos at large.
So, during the influences of this Full Moon, you can see that not only does reevaluating our personal lives come into play, but as we weigh these wise considerations, we are making value choices that will affect the interests of life for the collective whole and will be the foundations of the New Earth we are birthing. We have the chance to make conscious choices that will either move us toward greater growth or that will keep us stuck. Taurus and Scorpio work in balance to assist the purging of anything not working towards that greater good and growth and to take committed stance on expressing and demonstrating those values through consistent life choices.
This is also why it has been a challenging time for many, as so much is in this process of transformation. This is bringing up every possible hidden thing you have not addressed, perhaps denied, projected outwardly, haven’t yet integrated the message that was given to you, and repressed, so that you can face it in grounded strength in order to create healing integration and learn the alchemy of transmutation.
No longer can you run from the important things needing your attention. When you lovingly face and embrace what you are being shown, this energy supports amazing results awaiting you. I know for myself, in working through some of my own core mirrors and values that were knocking at my door this year, things that were grating at me for a while have transformed amazingly by my willingness to integrate them. I heard that the end of 2012 is a time of transmuting the last of our 3-D karma and I would have to say in my own personal life and experience, that this feels very true. The lightness I am feeling by facing the emotional truths from karmic things in my own life, is providing the wholeness needed to walk through the new doors of experience. I listened to the signs, including breaking my foot twice this year under stressful times, and took the messages seriously to heart. The results are continually gifting me beautiful experiences of which I’m grateful for.
If you are willing to commit to the process, which can be very challenging at first (but doesn’t have to be hard), there is a pot of gold at the end of the journey. This is a great time to also create and manifest big things, as you transform within and complete, clean, and change things. Being that Taurus is a very physical energy, you may also experience a lot of things within the body right now as a mirror of what you are working with. This can include tension and a lot of inner drive to do physical things. Moving your body in whatever way feels appropriate will assist the movement of energy, so it does not get blocked. And as always, remember balance. Be mindful that with sensual Taurus energy you may have the desire to emotionally indulge in things of the physical senses. Now, more than ever, let moderation be your guide and keep that gentle and healthy flow – extremes will be counter-productive.
There is amazing opportunity in the present energies for you to harness. You can become the creator of your life when you understand how to work with them. Know that you are being supported on your courageous journey, that we are all in this together, and that you do have everything you need within you.
