The full moon in Taurus can provide us intense energetic support to deepen our souls work. In a tight grand cross in fixed signs, including a close conjunction with Uranus, this toughness could be ruthless and disruptive, or awakening and supportive. We are called to relate to what we value and how we envision maturing towards our personal truth and vision and that of society. Stay authentic and conscious and relate with whatever energies from the shadows are coming into light.
With Venus retrograde in Scorpio while four planets are in Scorpio, this is no typical moment. Check to see if you have a person a personal planet or aspect to 10 degrees of Scorpio to 25 degrees Libra to reflect on how this retrograde season is affecting you. We are relating with deep wounds and lessons around repressed material, our true values, wounds, desire, longing, addictions, and primal natures. October 6th through November 17th, Venus is challenging us to feel, transform, embrace, and forgive. We may be challenged by self worth issues, betrayal, loyalty, anger, resentment, or grief. All that lives in the shadows of our hearts, guts, and relationships is coming forward. We must alchemize to proceed.
The Sun’s shift into Scorpio seems also to shift our attention from relationships and supporting one another, to the deep inner work that is required to benefit from this otherwise disruptive and potentially challenging moon. We are individuating, discovering our own truth and path, while encountering the most challenging aspect of psyche. The transformation possible is profound, while we need to be weary of tragedy in relationships, addiction, and disruption. We are learning about intimacy and freedom. How do we exercise both? Do we value ourselves? Are we in relationship with those that value us? What insights do you have about how you can support yourself on an inner level? Dr. Christiane Northrup reminded me that we have to stop the bleeding. Our blood flow and energy will return when we relate with our ability to alchemize intense experience and connect with the awake aspect of spirit. We can trust our shadow material and befriend it. We can celebrate creating boundaries that are uncomfortable. We need the space to feel and the determination to relate with direct knowledge of our inner life. Mindful not to run away to the next distraction. We can connect with the divine and unconditional love, but not at the expense of energetic self protection. Envision the relationships and world you want, and go towards it.
