FULL MOON IN TAURUS ~ RISING CLARITY
Tonight is the Full Moon in Taurus for the West Coast (10:22 pm PST) and early tomorrow morning for the Central & East Coast (1:22 am EST). Taurus is a strong and supportive sign ~ bringing in the earthy, comforting side of life. As Chani Nichols shares, the Moon loves to be in Taurus and is said to be exalted here. This is our time of darkness, inner journeys, and finding the comfort in the arms of mother earth. I find a likeness of Mother Earth to a vessel, a cauldron. She is open to holding and recycling our fears and joys and transforms them so that our life experiences can be blended and transmuted into a meaningful whole. She calls us to change as she does all things in nature.
Taurus is a feminine, fixed, earth sign, ruled by Venus. A Taurus Moon slows us down so that our roots can grow deeper under her sensual creativity. It is a time to cultivate the miracle of the Earths magic.
Connecting with Mother Earth under a Taurus Moon can help you to find a subtle clarity arising from a place of inward receptivity. This is a time for tilling ~ before planting the seed ~ be like the rivers and streams and follow the path of least resistance.
A sweet ceremony for you:
- Create a vessel out of something from the earth ~ clay, sticks, leaves, twigs, flower petals or even paper with herbs and spices glued on or stained onto the paper ~ be creative sisters & brothers.
- Do a meditation calling on Mother Earth and Grandmother Moon to bring you a word, a picture or a sound that will connect you to the clarity that is arising in you. You may want to use rosemary or peppermint oil in a diffuser or on your wrists to enhance clarity of mind. If you have any fluorite or citrine you may want to place them near you or hold them during your meditation.
- Here are a few questions to ask yourself:
- What are you beginning?
- What are you cooking?
- What is transforming?
- Draw or write your answer and place it in the vessel ~ or maybe write or draw your answer on your vessel. Place anything else in your vessel that feels grounding and centering. The vessel is there for you to connect with your center ~ to receive the clarity that is arising.
Place the vessel on your altar and tomorrow once you have your Moon Water created ~ place a few drops in your vessel ~ or even do it daily until the New Moon in Scorpio.
