2018 Taurus Full Moon
24 Oct 2018 at 9.45 am PDT- 12.45 pm EDT- 5.45 pm BST (summer time GMT)
25 Oct 2018 at 12.45 am AWST Perth, Australia- 3.45 am AEDT Sydney, NSW, Australia
Here in the North Country at Autumn Equinox Grandfather Sun had set due west. Now a few weeks later as Snowy Owl and Shooting Star climbed the path to the Star Temple to do ceremony for this Full Moon they noticed He was setting much further south on the western horizon. The dark times were coming. But many of the Standing Ones had not yet shed their leaves and everything looked the same on the surface. Still the sisters felt everything was changing deep within. They were anxious to hear Sister Moon’s message to know what those changes were about.
As they entered the Star Temple the sacred space was bathed in silver blue shadows. Sister Moon was shining brightly in the east. Her face was radiantly full. As always the young women felt her mystical presence as Luna sailed the indigo sky in her fullness. She began to share her message. “This Full Moon is about personal empowerment. Not to have power over anyone or anything but to connect within to your sacred center and embrace your true value and spiritual essence. It is about believing in self and opening to the abundance of the universe and allowing that abundance to fill your life. My planetary guide is Evening Star. She is supporting all of you to release what is no longer of value and make space for the new that is on your horizon. She is completing a journey and about to begin a new journey of healing, transformation, and release. Her gift to you is to release whatever stands in the way of your new beginnings”.
Sister Moon paused for a moment and then continued “This is a Moon time of great change. My travelling companion, The Awakener, is asking you to break through resistance and go with the flow. If you do resist change it is still happening whether you embrace the opportunity or not. During this Moon cycle which began with the New Moon a change in direction is being activated. This change will continue into the next Moon cycle and beyond. It is written in the stars. When you find your inner power change becomes your ally. When you resist, it will happen without your permission. It is happening whether you embrace it or not. Release resistance and allow your spirit to flow into the new and you will thrive.”
Snowy Owl and Shooting Star were ready for the new. Any resistance they may have felt dissolved with Sister Moon’s message.
On Oct 23 the Sun entered Scorpio giving us the opportunity for deep healing and transformation. He will be visiting Scorpio until Nov 22. In the Northern Hemisphere this is our Freeze Up Time with Snake, shedding the old and transforming into the new, as our Animal Totem guide. In the Southern Hemisphere this is your Growing Time with Beaver, clearing the clutter and building the new, as your Animal Totem guide. For all of us we now have four planets visiting Scorpio, the Sun (vitality and individuality) Venus Rx (self value and empowerment) Mercury (thoughts and perceptions) and Jupiter (expansion and growth of our spiritual vision). The key word for this planetary lineup is INTENSITY. Another key word for the next two months is CHANGE. You can resist but as our story told us it is happening whether you embrace the opportunity or not. This is happening not just on a personal level. Pluto in Capricorn is the planetary guide for this Scorpio journey. He tears down the old structures that no longer work and is asking us to build a new transformed world society.
This Taurus Full Moon is asking us to embrace the new that is on the horizon by releasing what no longer works. Taurus is concerned with security and stability on the material physical plane. The Moon is travelling with Uranus retrograde and he is asking us to break free from the past and breakthrough to the new. Astrologer Jeffery Wolf green calls Uranus “freedom from the known”. They are of course opposite the Sun/Venus conjunction in Scorpio, releasing what no longer serves us. Venus is the planetary ruler of the Moon/Uranus conjunction. This opposition forms a Fixed Grand Cross with the South Node in Aquarius (releasing the past with love) and the North Node in Leo (the ego personality or the compassionate heart). The way out of the Fixed Cross (feeling stuck and restricted) is Saturn at 04 degrees Capricorn. He is trine (removal of obstacles) the Moon/Uranus (breakthrough) and sextile Sun/Venus (what is of true value in our lives). Saturn in Capricorn offers us the support to become empowered in the world and follow our Soul Purpose Path.
Venus is ending her journey that began as Aries Morning Star on 25 March 2017. Aries is warrior energy. It is also about inspired new beginnings for women (Venus in Aries). The Me Two movement was birthed during this time. On 26 Oct 2018 Venus is beginning her journey as Scorpio Morning Star. The theme is sex, power, secret motives, and hidden agendas continuing to be exposed. But also the power of healing, transformation, resurrection, and rebirth. Oct 29 to 31 Venus in Scorpio will be square (motivation for change) the South Node (the past) and North Node (new directions). She will continue to be opposite Uranus in Taurus echoing the Fixed Grand Cross of this Full Moon. Then on the 31st Venus retrogrades back into Libra and her focus is on personal relationships. She moves direct at 25 degrees Libra on Nov 16. That same day Mercury goes on his retrograde journey at 13 degrees Sagittarius (our spiritual vision) but will retrograde back into 00 degrees Scorpio Dec 01. The next day Dec 02 Venus will re-enter Scorpio. Together they will reactivate the energy of our current Taurus/Scorpio Full Moon. So pay attention to what you need to release at this Full Moon. Otherwise it will be on the agenda in early December.
Uranus (breakthrough) will continue to play an important part in the planetary dance into December. He will be square the Leo/Aquarius Nodes Oct 24 to Nov 06. On Nov 06 the North Node moves into Cancer (emotional well-being and intuitive guidance) and the South Node moves into Capricorn (reclaiming your personal power in the world). That same day Uranus retrogrades back into Aries (breaking through to your authentic self). What a way to start the new Nodal cycle. Uranus in Aries will be exactly square (finding new ways of doing things) the Cancer/Capricorn Nodes that day and that square continues to Nov 30 when Venus in Libra opposes Uranus and also squares the Nodes. All we can say is expect the unexpected big time in November and into December. But if you are connected to your Sacred Center all will be fine.
One last note. This Taurus/Scorpio Full Moon is active on the Fourth Ray of Harmony Through Conflict or Harmony Through Beauty and Peace. It is the Ray of humanity. What will we choose?
