This Full Moon in Taurus is at Perigee, meaning the closest to the Earth; some call it a Super Moon, which will appear larger than it's been in 70 years. Taurus expresses itself through Earth as sturdy and fertile, expressing endurance and capable of holding onto resources. The steadfastness of this Fixed sign implores us to be frugal with what we have and to keep things on an even keel.
Let's consider the pull of the Full Moon on the Earth's crust and all creatures who dwell within her sphere. The Soli/Lunar dance of opposites brings Scorpio and Taurus into dynamic play between the ego (Sun) and emotions (Moon). We have had a struggle between our male (aggressive) and female (receptive) natures. We understand we're part of a bigger whole, yet when it comes to issues of security, we may feel threatened by the values of others and want to defend ourselves. My plea to all of you, is to listen to the feminine side that can assist us with empathy and help us to listen to each other. Sometimes we get what we want, other times we don't.
In the chart for today's Full Moon, Chiron in Pisces, the asteroid named after a Centaur, (half human and half horse) is interacting very favorably to form a sextile to the Moon and a trine to the Sun. With these two aspects, we can find harmony for healing the divide within our own natures and outside of ourselves. Chiron is known as the "wounded healer" whose orbit runs between Saturn, representing body and Uranus, representing spirit. Allow Chiron to do his work of forming a rainbow bridge for connecting body and spirit and helping in the healing process so necessary around the world today.
We also receive an assist from two minor aspects between Mercury and the asteroid Juno, indicating a concern with relationships, and Venus and Juno. These subtle influences can have a positive effect on improving pertinent partnerships, such as in marriages and key business ventures.
Full Moons illuminate and give energy to the Earth, via the Sun's force and the Moon's watery pull. First, center yourselves daily through prayer or meditation, sending healing thoughts out to an imperiled world, then decide (set your intentions) to hear the pleas of mankind. Determine not to add to the pain and suffering around the globe, rather to find avenues of adjustment to express compassion while sharing your own unique thoughts about how to heal wounds, let go of the past and prepare for new beginnings.
Keep on keeping on and while putting one foot in front of the other, remember to keep your head in the stars and your feet on the ground!
