Taurus is known for its stubbornness – both Scorpio and Taurus are fixed signs- which means neither likes to change. Yet Jupiter insists on it! As do Uranus and Mars. These dynamic energies are propelling us forward, even if some of us are dragging our heels in the sand. Change we must! Our survival depends on it.
There is beauty in change. It’s exciting. So why the resistance? Taurus (Moon) wants safety and security, Scorpio (Sun) opposite seeks the edge … and beyond. Both link us to our survival fears, and the strong influence of Jupiter will amplify all of it! Push-pull dynamics in relationships may come to a head. Breakthroughs are immanent – though you may need to breakdown (ego) to breakthrough. Something needs to dissolve to make way for a new energy trying to enter. This new energy will move us further out of the old paradigm.
Because the Moon in Taurus (security) is being eclipsed, there may be situations or people that we are clinging to for security … that we will be forced to lessen our grip on. Creature comforts can keep us stuck in old patterns; Scorpio wants us to risk it all. Jupiter says think big – think outside the box, and remember to include your community i.e. those around you (Aquarius). Always aim for the greater good. Aim high. Enough with the polarizing, the shaming and blaming. We are all in this together! You may think you know whats going on – but think again. And again. If we use our spidey-sense to see beneath the surface, much will be revealed (Scorpio). Next year promises a lot of secrets will be revealed, corruption unmasked (!!).
Meanwhile, we really are all in this together. Yet if we don’t know who we are, we are no good to anyone. Venus – ruler of the eclipse in Taurus – is currently in Capricorn. .. which is about responsibility and striving for success. Venus here says ‘Do what you love – love what you do!’ Be your own boss! Claim your personal authority’.
Jupiter is big in this eclipse (at right angles) He wants us to see the bigger picture. Thinking big is not about bigging-up on anyone; our hubris is merely a cover for how small we really feel. Yet in truth we are powerful beings, and we are even stronger together. We have to find the balance between self and other, Full Moons always create some kind of push pull dynamic. Aquarius represents our connection to society, and the polarity point (opposite) is in Leo, who says: Open your heart. Claim your personal sovereignty. Shine!
When we shine our light- it is inevitable that shadows will appear ….and those will need to be faced. When the Moon goes Blood Red in a few hours, drum, sing, dance, meditate – find a ritual to help you release whatever is keeping you stuck. If it’s the next day when you are reading this, no worries, as this energy will ripple out for many months. Eclipses show us whats not working, by revealing the hidden shadow. Although this can be rather daunting, we can the energy to transform our stuck places. They may not necessarily be on the outside – it may be our inner laziness, the part that prefers things to go back to the way things were (so called normal).
We will be forced to examine what gives us succor and feeds our inner being (instead of our outer being). As we continue to move through this challenging terrain, there is a great sense of possibility. New horizons. New ways of doing planet earth. Not everyone will make it through, or choose to. Death is the biggest letting go. Yet in our materialistic world that reality is so outside of the regular linear thinking that its hard to grapple with. We must go through some sort of stripping down before we emerge on the other side. Whatever part of us has died or is dying, Neptune in Pisces says ‘Trust in the Universe’ … that which IS… and always will be.
Everything else is temporary.
What is holding me back from what I want?
What do I want? What do I value? What do I need to let go of?
Do I know how to I separate my wants and my needs? (Taurus /Scorpio)
Is there a boundary I need to draw to preserve my personal integrity and sovereignty?(Venus Capricorn)
What am I willing to sacrifice for the greater good?(eclipse)
Ultimately, this Full Moon in Taurus says:
Know your Worth.
Don’t just survive ~ Thrive!
“Break the habit of being yourself ” (or your ‘not self’) (Joe Dispenza)
All will be well
