This week’s spotlight is on the Taurus Full Moon, Wednesday October 24 at 12:45 PM EDT. This is not the typical Taurus Full Moon, as Uranus is closely conjunct the Moon. Additionally Retrograde Venus in Scorpio makes an opposition to that same Moon in Taurus.
The action gets started this week on Tuesday the 23rd when the Sun makes its annual entry into Scorpio. That happens at 7:22 AM EDT.
The relative civility of Sun in Libra gives way to the primal passion of Sun in Scorpio. Since some of that civility of Libra has been compromised already (witness the Kelly/Bolton profanity laced blow-up in the White House this past week), I can only imagine what this Scorpio time period will be like this month.
Jupiter is still in Scorpio also, where it has been for almost a year now. It moves into the fire light of Sagittarius on November 8, 2 days after Election Day in the USA.
So this week will likely be quite intense, and with Uranus’ influence “out of the ordinary”, “out of control”, and for some “out of their minds”.
Intensity may accelerate as soon as Monday morning when the Moon moves into forceful Aries, then increases when the Sun moves into Scorpio on Tuesday.
And by Tuesday we will also be feeling the power of this Full Moon in Taurus.
Uranus in the Full Moon signature shakes up the same-old status quo normality (whatever is left of it).
So expect sudden turns of focus and events. Taurus is a fixed earth sign, and as such it usually provides stability, comfort, and security.
Yet the Sun conjunct Venus in Scorpio- opposing that steady Moon in Taurus, promises passion and emotional power in contrast.
And Uranus in Taurus is very closely conjunct the Moon in Taurus and opposite the Sun and Venus in Scorpio.
Venus is Retrograde in Scorpio, which suggests relationships will intensify and get shaken up some more. This is especially true for any relationships that are already troubled, or which have previously pushed important issues “under the rug” of daylight consciousness.
The strength of this Full Moon may push some to the edge.
There is a drama building in regards to refugees coming over the border from Mexico into southern USA.
The aforementioned blowup between Bolton and Kelly was over this issue. Bolton favors the military going down to the Mexican/USA border and stopping anyone from crossing into America. Trump apparently agrees more with this approach.
Kelly on the other hand favors a more tempered approach that is not so hard-line.
This Full Moon in Taurus is made of fixed signs Taurus and Scorpio, which means there is a lot of stubborn digging in with one’s beliefs and needs- not much room for compromise. It can be like a “tug-of-war” between people.
Taurus can quite stubbornly hold the line and not budge. But Sun/Venus in Scorpio can push for its agenda in quite intensely powerful ways.
And then Uranus in Taurus can create chaotic circumstances to help break issues and events open, facilitate breakthroughs, and break down anything in its way.
So order versus chaos is a potential theme of this Full Moon in Taurus.
You can expect order to begin to break down, and then as a result some will use more oppressive means so order can be restored.
In your personal life relationships are already in the spotlight with Venus Retrograde until November 16. Now with Venus still Retrograde, Uranus in the Full Moon structure will help you to break away from any relationships or relationship patterns you are stuck in.
Uranus is great for helping people think out side boxes of limitation, awakening people to look at things in all new ways. And in this process, Uranus helps to free or liberate people from situations or mindsets they were previously trapped in.
Uranus was discovered in 1781, during the USA revolution and France’s revolution too.
Uranus is the “ruling” planet of Aquarius, so is the ruling planet of the Age of Aquarius.
Each of us deserves to be free of the cultural programming that starts the day we are born into families and societies that have created paradigms we are all herded into.
Now as we transition out of the Age of Pisces and into the Age of Aquarius, de-programming is essential and there for us when needed.
And with Uranus strong this week, we can each make real progress on our soul’s journey into more free minds and hearts.
To me it is pretty obvious we need a revolution again, out of the corporate dominated, materialistic society we are brought up in.
Yes we may need structures and rules to live by to keep a somewhat ordered and moral way of living. But those structures and rules need to be made to lovingly support our free spirits, not to dominate and control them.
Our hearts belong to ourselves and the Universe, not to a nation, not even to a family.
Somehow we have been hypnotized in giving our power away to the state, which is now governed by big money and big military, not truly serving the people.
Yes you may seem to get security benefits from an allegiance to the nation and its rules, but at what price? In many cases, slowly but surely heart and soul fall asleep, spirit dies.
Zombies are metaphorically real. Movies and shows about them have been so popular because there is a ring of truth to them.. More and more people are “walking dead”, without knowing it. They stop thinking for themselves, and instead make knee jerk opinions that are always loyal to the “team” they are on. An example is liberals versus conservatives.
Politics has become more like a team sport or better yet army war games.
You are different from me and so you are my enemy? People do not even try to understand where someone from the other team are coming from. They have lost the ability to think and feel for themselves.
They have robotic reactions to everything important. No wonder robots are being thought to replace humans in so many ways. Robots and zombies- our future?
