The Cosmic Story: Taurus Full Moon 2012
This week’s Taurus Full Moon confronts us with the awareness of the cycles of life. The sign of Taurus opens us to the beauty of Spring and initiates the beginning of the summer season in the northern hemisphere - the Celtic festival of Beltane on May 1st is the beginning of summer. The sign of Scorpio initiates the beginning of our winter season, with Samhain or Halloween marking the part of the cycle that honors death and winter.
With this full Moon so close to All Hallows Eve, the veils between the worlds will be very thin. Remember your ancestors and those beloveds who have passed beyond the veils this year. Remember, honor, and recognize what values and talents they lived by. Somewhere within you, you have those same traits. What have you done with them? Will you honor the departed by tending those inherited values and talents to share with the world?
Taurus, a fixed earth sign, and Scorpio, a fixed water sign, are probably the two most stubborn signs of the zodiac. It’s so easy to get stuck in our routines (Taurus) as well as in our feelings (Scorpio). But each year, we get a chance to change all that. With the Taurus Full Moon we become aware of what no longer serves life and we get a chance to transform old stuck energy and feelings and release them. Leaving us open to new growth and energy once we go through the ‘letting go’ of the death cycle.
Taurus’ journey is one of personal values. Souls incarnate in Taurus to learn what is worth building into life, which can only be discovered when we understand our core values, our self-worth and our attitude toward money, security and the sensual pleasures of life.
Scorpio’s journey is to discover where we share values with others. In past lives, the Scorpio part of us has dealt with dark and hurtful experiences and comes into this lifetime with those stuck feelings unconsciously controlling how we relate to others. Will we be betrayed again? Hurt, rejected, terrorized? Just as Taurus arrives with the Spring, bringing us hope of life, Scorpio looks at what he has experienced in that life and confronts us with our fears about relating to others. This full Moon can help us understand that all these emotional wounds are really learning experiences that, once named and understood, can be released so we can move on to deeper intimacy.
