This eclipse sees the opening to a new eclipse cycle. Representing transformation, and turning points. Destiny and fate of events for our own personnel and worldly growth and evolution. A great time to bring closure to things in our lives that no longer serve us. A chapter has ended ready for a new one.
As every full moon, we look at what no longer serves us, what we need to let go off and what is illumination upon us now shinning something that will come to light.
Being in Taurus, we look at our values, our finances and depending on what house the moon and Taurus sit in, within your chart, that is the area of most important or where the priorities lay now

Start by looking over your budgets and planning your security but also those new purchases you may have had your eye on, remember though it’s all about being sensible with the Taurean influence. Taking control over your finances will allow you to feel more secure and the influence is just right for that planetary assistance now. your life.
You may be looking at your health, especially if you have overindulged recently and with the festivities coming up too you may want to get in shape.
Have you fallen off the exercise wagon? Now would be a good time to realise this, be accountable for your actions and do something about it
This is a great time to think about what is at your core, your beliefs and values, what makes you really tick and what doesn’t. What is important to you, where is your heart at. What is going to make you content and rich in life
Remember to stay grounded through any changes
You could be looking at yourself, asking where you have been over obsessing, overeating, overprotective, over stubborn? All typical Taurean traits. Don’t beat yourself up too much though, this is a time of realisation and nurturing not beating yourself up. Just become aware if it has gone a step too far, pay attention to your own insecurities and needs and find your own way of being kinder in these situations
The positive influence of this fabulous Taurus full moon is that you can pamper yourself till your hearts content! Taurus love being sensual, they love gorgeous things, they have no problem indulging in beautiful ways that make them feel the super special people they are. So take a note out of their book and treat yourself to a little you time over the next few days.

We also have an eclipse with this full moon, this lets you know there is a great shift coming leading to a break through. You may be feeling very restless and impatient, but the energy is extremely powerful and beneficial in the long run. Helping you release negative blocks and raising your vibration.
Being opposite Scorpio, you could be looking at getting a better balance with your emotions and your practical side. As with most full moons, emotions run high but you can control that or let things go with the practical side of Taurus.
Now I am a typical Taurus and as I write this I can see so many things that I can relate too! This is through a positive time though and I for sure feel very settled, in control and at peace with where things are right now.
Earth signs, Taurus, Capricorn and Virgo plus the water signs , Scorpio, Cancer and Pisces will find this an easier time, while, the other sign may find it a little more challenging.
On my Alter I will have symbols of the Taurus Bull, green candles and the tarot cards for what I want to release and where I want my energies to be cantered on next. Ruled by Venus I will have rose quartz crystal and emerald green colours for my May birthstone. I will choose some personnel items that reflect my values and family.
The Tarot card connected to Taurus is the Hierophant. In some decks the pope. This card represents, conforming, following a particular belief system. Not rocking the boat. Order and groups or communities particularly with a religious or spiritual theme. Often this card comes up when someone is seeking guidance from a spiritual leader or wanting direction in the form of rules and regulations and order.
The Hierophant suggest rules, regulations, tradition and honour are important values right now. Doing things in a conventional way, not rocking the boat and bringing order to situations.

The Hierophant can mean very different things which makes it a hard card for understanding sometimes. Depending where it falls in the spread would have an indication as to what side of the card is represented. Your own faiths and believe system would also come into thought too.
The Hierophant card represents an established set of spiritual values and beliefs, ones that may strongly connect to religion and groups/associations. Learning the basics and foundations.
Spiritual quests or path ways are often associated with the Hierophant, Working with an authority figure or becoming one depending. Formal study, formal learning and placing order in things you are about to undertake. Conventional wisdom
You may already be the teacher or seeking to be one, one that is respected and honours tradition, one that is willing to share in a formal orthodox way
This is not the time to start new things, or have new ways of thinking. The tried and tested ways are the best at this time. By keeping to the rules and regulations its not only a safe bet but also a better chance of success.
The Hierophant can talk about family traditions such as marriage, naming ceremony or family traditions and spiritual practices that involve groups and organisations.
Being part of something that involves a community, or group, especially spiritual or where a strong faith is connected.
