Full Moon in Taurus

Full moons are like the screaming child desiring attention, or, if a more virgoan metaphor is needs–it is like an inspection. Either way the Sun reflecting upon the moon is symbolic of the higher forces of the souls shining down upon the earthly forces of the psyche, and in so far as the moon is given to be within a star sign, then so is the light brought to bear focussed on just a singular department of the psyche.

This time the full moon passed through Taurus, or to put it personally, the light of the higher self turned its attention to the attitudes and urges described under Taurus. The Bull is about a productive and enduring attitude with an urge for material connection. Everyone has in their psyche a certain level of success with endurance, a certain capacity for producing 'stuff,' and they have a given strength and focus of physical urges and sensuality.

These personal forces that move in the psyche are always seeking expression, and they have a strength, an intensity and a particular shade of character. These three components that make up the engines of action drive the psyche to manifest them, physically, emotionally or mentally, depending on where they are.

It is this combination of the physical incarnation's 'Taurean' funds that produces so much variance in the individual's unique approach to physicality. Thus, Taurus can said to govern, security, patience, possession, physical art, comforts, sex (the physical part of the experience), food luxuries and all that may be experiences of a sensual nature.

A full moon in Taurus brings these areas into the light and for three days before the full moon, energy will build up in this part of the psyche in order that the expression-feedback-learning cycle is engaged. Any tranche in the psyche that is undeveloped will result in clumsy manifestation so that further evlotution can be made; any success or adeptness in that same tranche will express it self as effortless art. And, there are shades of capacity between.

For three days after a full moon the psyche is still energized and will continue to move Taurean forces, as a priority.

The urge to engage physicality is strong; the desire to give the taste buds high tasting food, often with fat will come to the fore; stubbornness increases; the sexual act becomes slower and more savourous; the labedo becomes hungrier; sleeping in becomes an event; lounging on the sofa, dressing in comfy clothes; touching becomes more prevalent, and the urge to touch increases; feelings become stronger, but not more refined, habitual patterns are hard to break during a Taurean full moon; sexual fluids become more voluminous; the urge to bear burdens strengthens; and , more chocolate is consumed.

It's a comfortable full moon to be under, unless of course you live a sensually diminished life, or eat only health foods–full moon in Taurus is six days of the wet, slow moving, strong physical desires and forces that we all possess.
