October 29 – November 4, 2012 is a powerful week. Monday we have a Full Moon in earthy Taurus. Which shines opposite the watery depths of the Scorpio Sun. This is not a fluffy kind of time, instead use the energy to probe the depths of your psyche to see what stays and what should go from your world. Communication centered Mercury has just moved into Truth seeking Sagittarius so you can expect to be getting really real with life, enter the adventure to make the most of the times. Now we dig deep to prepare the soil for the fantastic newness about to enter our lives.
Monday’s full moon in Taurus is steady like a volcano. Which is decidedly unsteady when active, but mountain like when still. It could go either way for you, depending on your particular mix of planetary energies. The Taurus lens this moon shines through likes the finer things in life. The stable, countable, little luxuries that can be relied upon. Keep it simple and pretty and there shall not be tears or yelling or outbursts of any kind. But alas, the sun reflecting back at this moon is in intense Scorpio, not satisfied with the superficial surface: Life is complicated, loved ones die, the rain can go on and on and on.
Life has a painful side that must, just must, be acknowledged and embraced. Scorpio wants to talk about it- Taurus wants to run screaming (but only on the inside) from any sort of unpleasant emotion. Balancing this energy creates a well-rounded stable and healing force. There is potential to get clear about what is contributing to your secure and happy future and what is festering below the surface, sucking your life force. Festering is never a wise choice, nor should you allow your life force to be leached by stagnation. So open up to what is presenting itself. Sit crossed-legged to ground yourself while you open up your heart to the unpleasant bits you usually push away. It is strengthening to look into the dark. You come out on the other side fearless and clear. It was all an illusion, a lesson, another piece of the puzzle. Nothing you need ever leaves your life.
Mercury the great connector moves to know it all Sagittarius the same day as the full moon. Big thinking Jupiter is shining on this show. Watch for a deep desire for the truth. The big truth, like: Why are we hear? Where did we come from? Is there life after death? Is there a God? Are we being lied to by those we are supposed to trust? We have a sense of the prime importance of answering the big questions. Somehow asking the question guides us to the higher realms, the dimensions that our answers reside in. We can be positively precognitive now. There is no denying that you see it coming- whatever ‘It” might be. While clever Mercury is in Sagittarius it’s time to teach what you know, stand up for what you believe in. Get a glimpse of the vastness of reality. The only limits are your imagination
Take time this full moon to deliberately release. It is time to let things go, values are changing rapidly now. Be willing to throw caution to the wind, but bring a coat and wear warm socks. Be prepared! There is a link between Earthquake activity and the eclipses, often in the fixed signs, which is exactly what this Full Moon is in. There was a large earthquake off the coast of BC on the 27th and again on the 28th. Even at this great magnitude it caused no great damage. But the fear has risen, the emotional climate is panicky. Use this opportunity to prioritize. Close calls are great for clarifying.
Be gentle with yourself and bolster your senses. A hot bath with warming essential oils like geranium and clary sage are deeply fortifying. Create a peaceful observation space in your life.Your body is likely feeling the pressure of the Moon and the soon to come eclipse. Bolster rather than abuse your one and only body for this time around. Listen to music, sip broth, stretch. Anything Self-Loving now will be healthy and supportive during this transformative week.
