Taurus Full Moon ~ Uncompromising Gratification


I love a Taurus Full Moon. The Moon is exalted in Taurus and I find these Moons are often an invitation to indulge in pleasures of the senses. This lunation is a Supermoon as the Moon is closest to the Earth, so the craving for satisfaction can be strong.

The Full Moon in Taurus is exact at 8:05am EST on Oct 27 at Taurus 4 degrees. The Supermoon lures us to kick back and enjoy some pampering and nourishment and the temptation for gratification will likely be irresistible.

Taurus is often considered ‘stubborn’ because of it’s Earth and Fixed qualities, but perhaps a more fitting term is ‘uncompromising’. What are your non-negotiables when it comes to truly feeling grounded, nourished and satiated? Whereas Libra – the other Venus-ruled sign – craves balance and harmony, the buck stops with Taurus. That’s not to say that tenderness is off the table, so long as self-worth accompanies it.

Value is the realm of Taurus and it’s worth asking ourselves what we truly value. Do our values reflect our lives? Is our self-worth a guiding light or has it been snuffed out in favor of unattainable notions of harmony? This is a time to sense where you stand in the value you place on yourself.

The opposing Scorpio Sun adds intensity of emotion to this Full Moon. Scorpio rules sex, passion, desire, obsession, emotional bonding – and also shame. What hidden desires have been neglected or buried underneath shame? Scorpio is anything but shallow and whatever is buried in the depths of the subconscious is illuminated by the Sun. Acknowledge what emotions come up so that they no longer control you from behind the scenes.

Ruling this Full Moon is the love goddess Venus in Virgo, flanked by warrior Mars, expansive Jupiter and opposed by soulful Chiron in Pisces. The possibilities are endless with this mingling of impulses but what’s clear is that issues around love aren’t light, easy or simple. They can actually touch us very deeply at this time.

But what’s also worth keeping in mind is our ability to impact others at a profound level. Venus-Chiron speaks to deep, soulful connections. Be mindful of your ability to witness another’s soul nature and what a gift that is, even if it’s just a glimpse.

Beyond the glamour, drama and expectations of others, this Full Moon allows us an opportunity to discover our authentic desires and where we are no longer willing to compromise. And what’s sexier than knowing your true self?
