This weekend's full moon in Taurus features a number of magical aspects. I say magical with sincerity. This is the kind of astrology that unblocks stoppages that seemed impenetrable, that makes synthesis and connections from elements that were probably right in front of you but invisible for some reason. As usual with a full moon we have revelation and illumination. When the light is bright at night our sleep gets lighter and dreamtime seeps into the edges of consciousness. Don't be surprised if your dreams start to show themselves in waking life. Do be proactive about paying attention to your dreams (those that come in sleep and those that come when awake,) because this moon's energy can start to build now and will be revealed in 6 months time at the opposite season and Taurus new moon.

The axis between Taurus and its opposing sign Scorpio represent the most fundamental axis of life. Taurus rules the mouth, throat, neck and shoulders. It is where we swallow and experience the capacity to make decisions about how to sustain ourselves. It is where we receive nourishment that builds our bodies. Scorpio rules the genitals and eliminative organs. It is where we originated from, and the place where we give of our bodies to create life either through sex or shit (otherwise known as fertilizer.) Scorpio also, of course, rules the taboo, which sex and shit are very much implied in. It should give us all a moment of pause to stop and consider why these most basic functions of our bodies are things we've been taught to deny, ignore, hide or fetishize. 

Since the sun and the moon oppose one another what we have here is a reflection upon life cycles. The profound awareness of life as precious comes when we are very close to death. The possibility or experience of death can often actually open us up to life, and in some ways you might say it frees us from the temporary separation of human form back into the everything-ness. These themes are enlarged currently with Jupiter's recent ingress into Scorpio that begins a 12-month process of learning about intimacy, vulnerability and the nature of our most meaningful exchanges.

I talk about a number of the aspects this full moon makes and my interpretation of what they might mean for us individually and collectively. Listen to my podcast here.

The process of life and death includes pain and suffering, though hopefully, over time we can learn to work with the painful histories we carry and transmute them into wisdom so that future generations will suffer less. Please practice this guided, somatic (body-centered) meditation for Deep Healing to work with this full moon energy for transformation.
