Full Moon in Taurus
On October 31st, a rare Blue Moon occurs at 8° of Taurus. This is the name given to a second Full Moon that occurs in any given month. Adding to its peculiarity is the fact that although there is a Full Moon on Halloween somewhere in the world every 19 years, this will be the first one to occur across all time zones since 1944.
This lunar culmination will be in an exact conjunction with the planet Uranus, transiting the Earth sign of Taurus until 2026. A polarized energy with an eruptive nature, the rebellious Maverik Uranus in the Fixed Earth sign, may pour forth in an explosive manner, perhaps in the form of actual Earth events or political earthquakes. Full Moons serve to illuminate what has been hidden in the dark, previously unknown or unseen. With rebel planet Uranus amplifying this energy, shocking information may suddenly be revealed on a personal and also a global scale. Revolutionary breakthroughs that reinforce the messages of Pluto and the deconstruction from the Capricorn stellium. The process of transformation that has been taking place this entire year now becomes clear.
There is a very rebellious quality to this lunation. In addition to the Uranian energy, Mercury retrograde is at 26° of Libra during this Full Moon, forming a Cardinal t-square to the planets in Aries and Capricorn. This echoes the recent Libra New Moon in the Cardinal energy, and two consecutive Moons ruled by Venus. Themes of challenged value systems, justice, and equality are being illuminated once again. With Mars retrograde in his ruling sign of Aries, this could play out in the form of Social unrest. This is especially true in the U.S, with the Taurus Full Moon occurring in strong Yang energy just 3 days before the election. Also occurring on election day November 3rd, Mercury will station direct and create an exact square to Saturn in Capricorn, intensifying outcries against apparent oppression.
The Moon rules our emotions. This Full Moon occurs on the Taurus/Scorpio relationship axis. The signs of emotional extremes, of embodying and bypassing, personal and shared, shape and form. This is a call for change and liberation in order to move us forward out of where we have been stuck, perhaps in fear of the unknown. Uranus knows the future and is able to deliver to us, insights in the form of Spiritual downloads from the higher mind. In the sign of Taurus, this can be an epiphany moment, a merging of heart and mind, A knowing of what is next in our lives. The Sun in Scorpio is opposing Uranus, offering breakthrough mentality to provide a rebalancing. To show us the empowering energy that has been waiting to come up from the dark, and out into the light.
