The Moon revels in the rich fertile fields of Taurus, so sink in and enjoy the sensual delights of this beautiful full moon. It’s not just about pleasurable indulgence though; with Mercury retrograde in the opposite sign of Scorpio, there are plenty of a-ha moments.
Mercury retrograde in Scorpio
At the solar end of the full moon opposition, the Sun in Scorpio is joined by retrograde Mercury. Just before the full moon, Mercury is purified by the fire of the Sun. This is the midpoint of the Mercury retrograde cycle (the inferior conjunction) and is the moment that Mercury sheds the dross he has accumulated and is born again, clear and renewed.
Mercury in Scorpio delves deep, taking nothing at face value. There is probing and investigating. Although this activity is not obvious or visible, it is almost certainly happening. Tune in and feel it. Scorpio has an instinct for uncovering what is hidden; retrograde Mercury recovers what is lost. Mercury retrograde in Scorpio tracks down the information abandoned and throw into the shadows. Integration leads to a complete soul.
With the Moon shining from the opposite sign of Taurus, at this significant moment of the Mercury retrograde cycle, there is a sense of revelation that leads to emotional enlightenment. New pathways are revealed, new ways of thinking, and new ways of communicating – especially around your need for security.
Your material resources
Security is a massive theme across the Taurus/Scoprio axis. Having enough and feeling safe, both physically and emotionally, are fundamental human needs.
This Taurus full moon will show you if you feel secure. Do you have sufficient material resources? Are you living in right relationship with the Earth herself? Are you taking more than you need?
If you are over-consuming physical resources, it is time to explore your emotional deficiencies and address them. More food, more money, more stuff cannot satisfy an emotional need.
Do you feel emotionally unstable? It may be time to bring your physical world into a more supportive emotional alignment. This could mean changes to your work, your living situation, or your relationships.
Trust the deep insights of your Mercury retrograde experience. Trust others enough to share resources.
Uranus in Taurus: The Taurus full moon, while sharing sign space, is largely clear of Uranus’ erratic interference. There’s just enough pep from Uranus to ensure you don’t spend the full moon in a food coma.
Moon trine Pluto: The full moon’s trine to Pluto reaches back to the last full moon (in Aries, square to Pluto). Under the light of this gentler full moon, you are empowered to glean further insight into the experience of being at your limit and also to integrate the wisdom from that cardinal rupture.
Venus, ruler of the Taurus full moon: Venus is in adventurous Sagittarius, giving Jupiter a jolly farewell as he prepares to leave his home sign. Venus is applying to a square with Neptune in Pisces, bringing a softness and receptivity to her fiery Sadge regalia. Resisting hedonistic temptation is difficult.
