The Full Moon in Taurus creates a beautiful counterbalance between the intricate energy of Scorpio Sun and the simplistic nature of Taurus Moon. At this interface of duality we are urged to surrender our attention to the senses; remembering that even through the most extreme and intense situations, we can find simplicity in breath, touch, and sense- embracing the NOW. This Full Moon is about releasing complications and grounding our energy into the Earth Mother for relief, release and renewed peace.
This Full Moon starts eclipse season; the first of a set of occurring along the Taurus-Scorpio axis- spanning through October 2023. Eclipse season is a very karmic period: during this time of the year, we experience fated events and situations that have the purpose of speeding up our evolutionary pace and help us move forward in our growth journey. Sometimes, the process is uncomfortable and we don’t understand it fully while we are deep into it. With time, we develop more objectivity: looking back, everything gets clearer.
The ruler of this Full Moon, Venus, trines Uranus (the planet of sudden change). With artistic and loving Venus in this aspect to unpredictable Uranus, you may have an urge to try something new. It may be difficult at this time to apply yourself to the same old routine. This is great time for socializing and exploring your freedom loving side. Expect the unexpected, hold a celebration out of the blue, do something different and daring- you may find some unexpected blessing.
Creativity, imagination, sensitivity and spirituality are all illuminated during this transit.
This is a great time to work on anything artistic. Communication skills benefit from this emphatic and soft influence.
With finely tuned senses, you will find your non-verbal communication skills highlighted. Psychic abilities will be enhanced and intuition strong.
This transit is about feeling into the bigger picture- not about facts and details.
During this transit, past hurts may be triggered and can cause angry outbursts directed that those who have upset you in the past.
This anger may have been building for some time and the temptation to lash out will be strong. You may also be the subject of unexpected attacks as well.

Focus on what is being triggered and work to free yourself from that instead of acting out in a way that will only deepen the triggered pain.
This transit brings with it a determination and purpose to achieve your goals.
Compulsive/obsessive tendencies can be harnessed to get difficult tasks done at this time.
Pluto may also increase your attractive nature and provide you with a mysterious glow which can provide you with strong levels of influence.
This increased power can be beneficial as long as it is used in a complimentary way and not abused. Misuse of this gift would result in karmic repercussions the next time Pluto experiences a challenging aspect.
If you use your power to help others, you will find you gain in many and unexpected ways.
This transit has two sides- your confidence and optimistic attitude can manifest as either good fortune or loss/embarrassment.
It is important to move forward with respect, moderation and discipline. Try to not overcommit; rather focus in on just one or a small number of projects- do not over do things.
Be conservative with finances, balanced in your food intake and try to avoid other addictive demons like drugs, alcohol and gambling.
