On November 3rd at 10:22pm PST, a Full Moon in Taurus will occur.

What is a Full Moon?

A Full Moon occurs when the Sun and Moon are in direct opposition to one another in the sky. Because of this, the Moon’s face is fully illuminated.

What does the Full Moon represent?

The Full Moon is the harvest. Full Moon’s mark the end of a lunar cycle and should be used to take full inventory of your abundance. They are a reflection of all you have built and nurtured in the time since the last New Moon.

How can I work with this particular Full Moon?

This Full Moon in Taurus invites in energy that combats all of the Scorpio power that has been dominating the scene lately. A Full Moon in Taurus is heavy. It is rooted in the power of consistency and the impact of taking a stand. This Full Moon may test your staying power. Scorpio season can shake up a lot of feelings and disrupt dynamics that previously seemed perfect. Use the Taurus Full Moon as a pit-stop on the way through Scorpio season that allows you to re-ground into your non-negotiable values.

Set aside some time for you to evaluate what has been shaken up in the last few weeks. Asses whether or not these changes have felt useful towards your growth. If not, it is important to own your mistakes and accept your losses. Taurus is a stubborn one. It will serve you best to take it slow and really analyze and understand where you were coming from. Be specific about why and how you believe your actions caused harm and what you are committing to moving forward.

The other side of a Full Moon is to just let it go. A Full Moon in a process of accumulation. Decide if what may be on pause or in a rough place may deserve to just live there for now. When walking any path, it is impossible to take everything with you. You have to figure out what is best and most fruitful for your move forward.

This journey is about not only knowing where you are going but also watching your step. There is a difference between leaving something behind and stepping on it to get to where you want to go. This Full Moon, cultivate a deep understanding of how your walk and your talk are aligning. Scorpio season can make your head feel heavy. Lighten the load by coming back to yourself, having compassion for your own process and seeing all of the hard work through.
