This weekend, on the 29th of October 2023, we will experience a Full Moon lunar Eclipse in Taurus. This celestial event brings with it the potential for significant changes in our lives. It is a time when emotions may run high, and there could be some dramatic moments.
Eclipses are known for their transformative energy. They have the power to unsettle our spirits and stir up deep-seated emotions. During an eclipse, the energy around us is heightened, allowing us to see things we might not have noticed before. While you may feel restless and impatient, this powerful energy can ultimately help you release negative blocks and raise your vibrational frequency.
A lunar eclipse offers us a unique window of opportunity. This is a time to manifest our desires and let go of what no longer serves us. Lunar eclipses are emotionally charged moments of karmic rewards, cosmic wisdom, and closure. October’s Full Moon in Taurus is an astrological hint to reminisce about how much you’ve grown.
Reflect on the period of November 2021 and the situations or energies you were dealing with in your life at that time. It’s likely that whatever was happening then has now come full circle, and the lessons or journey you’ve been on since then may have reached a culmination point. Eclipses help us shed layers and align with our authentic selves, and this Taurus Eclipse, is particularly potent for bringing closure to aspects of your life that no longer serve your soul. Karmic energy is magnified at this time.
An eclipse helps break karmic cycles and clears buried patterns and self-limiting beliefs.It creates opportunities, resources, and awareness to propel us forward in the coming months. It also serves as a gentle reality check. It could stir up emotions like anger or betrayal.
This full moon is squared with the Pluto so again brace yourself for surprises and jolts. Pluto, often associated with themes of rebirth, is active during this time. It may prompt you to confront your shadows and unearth uncomfortable truths, not just from the present but from your past as well. Be mindful of your interactions with others, as sensitivities will be heightened. It’s a good time for self-care practices like journaling, meditation, and self-discovery.
As the Taurus-Scorpio Eclipse cycle is completed, consider it a graduation point in your personal evolution. While you may feel a bit shaken, the future holds promise and opportunities for transformation.
During this Full Moon in Taurus, focus on what no longer serves you and consider the lessons that come to light. Given Taurus’s association with values and finances, take a closer look at your material needs, your possessions, and your financial situation. It’s an excellent time to assess what truly matters to you and what will bring contentment and abundance into your life.
Stay grounded throughout these changes, and don’t forget to pamper yourself during this time. Taurus energy encourages indulgence in beautiful and sensual experiences. Spend time in nature, reconnect with the Earth, and enjoy the company of loved ones.
Astrologically, Earth signs (Taurus, Capricorn, and Virgo) and water signs (Scorpio, Cancer, and Pisces) are likely to find this period more harmonious, while other signs might face more challenges.
I like to have my altar set up with symbols, candles, and tarot cards related to Taurus. It’s a wonderful way to connect with the energies of this Full Moon and Eclipse.
The Tarot card associated with Taurus is the Hierophant, which represents conformity, following a belief system, and seeking guidance from spiritual or religious leaders. It signifies a focus on tradition, honour, and order. It may also suggest the importance of family traditions and belonging to a community or group that shares strong spiritual or faith-based values.
This card encourages following established, conventional ways, especially after periods of upheaval. It’s a card that values formal study, learning, and adhering to the rules and regulations of a structured system. If you’re seeking guidance or a spiritual teacher, the Hierophant energy may be particularly relevant.
In summary, this Full Moon in Taurus and the accompanying Lunar Eclipse offer a potent time for reflection, release, and transformation. Embrace the energies of this period, stay grounded, and consider how the themes of tradition, values, and order apply to your life. It’s a time to honour your beliefs and explore the power of community and belonging.
