Explore Your Dreams: Taurus Full Moon 2011

by Cathy Pagano November 08, 2011 01:49 PM EST

This month’s Taurus Full Moon stands across from the Scorpio Sun, making us aware of life flashing before our eyes during this season of death.  The Taurus Moon energizes the beauty and possibilities of life that we want to conserve and protect during the coming months of darkness and cold, so they can blossom again next May.  At this full moon, we stand at that moment before death when we see what we have chosen to believe is important in life.  Look deeply at what you value and decide if it’s still important to you.  If it is, conserve it; if it’s not, let it go – let it die.

Since this full Moon lands right on my Taurus Venus, I will take this opportunity and tell you what I’m seeing as I face my yearly Scorpio shedding of skins.  I see the beauty of the Earth and wonder of the Cosmos first and foremost.  A brisk wind blowing through the mountains, glinting sunlight on the Seine, the dance of ritual fire, the changing landscape, the starry night sky.  I also see how climate change affects my world and my people with burnt-out forests, dry riverbeds, giant dust storms and early snowstorms.  I see my children, my family and my friends and they fill me with love and hope.  I hear exotic rhythms, I see radiant colors, I smell fragrant cheeses and baking breads, I hug myself in scratchy warm wool, I taste delicious Italian gelato!  I remember new and unexpected experiences.   I see old wounds healed and integrated.  And the most wonderful thing I feel is hope - hope of changing the world as I see my sisters and brothers gathering around the world to stand up for freedom and a new peaceful vision of Life here on Earth.

While many of you might see something different from what I’m seeing, this is a very Taurean inventory of the beauty life holds in store for us.  Stewardship of the Land, loyalty and love of family/friends, sensuality, and a sustainable future are hallmarks of a Taurean’s strength and endurance.  While the Sun moves through Scorpio, the Earth slowly sinks into sleep in the Northern hemisphere and dreams of the future.  (yes I know my southern friends are waking up to Springtime!  Joy for both of us, since I love Winter.)  Our Mother Earth takes a time out to rest. 

Are you resting enough?  With the seasonal shift in light that comes on cross-quarter holidays such as Samhain/ Halloween and the end of DST in the United States, people are exhausted and need to remember to rest.   That’s definitely a Taurean trait!
