Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Taurus - October 2023

Your guide to the moon cycle ahead.

Full Moon in Taurus

This Full Moon in Taurus is closing up eclipse season and is here to offer you closure on something that may have been lingering around for the last 18 months when the eclipses in Taurus first began.

Taurus is encouraging you to connect with your physical body and the natural world. During a lunar eclipse in Taurus, the earth energy is intensified, making it an ideal time to ground yourselves and find stability in your life.

The eclipse is going to amplify the need for an ending of some sort during this phase of the Moon. It could be that you feel finally ready to let go of something you know deep down should have been released a long time ago or it could mean the closing of a chapter ready for the beginning of a new one.

These eclipses are like the cosmic resets that you often know you need but haven't fully stepped into yet.

A Taurus Full Moon encourages you to assess your financial stability, your relationship with money, and your material possessions. Are you managing your resources effectively? Are there any financial adjustments or improvements needed to provide more security in your life?

Taurus can also shine a light into how you nurture and nourish yourself. This Full Moon invites you to reflect on your self-image and the value you place on yourself. Are you practicing self-love and self-care? Do you recognize your own worth and how it impacts your overall wellbeing?

Yoga Pose Focus for this Full Moon

Taurus energy is often known for it's need to be grounded so we want our physical practice to help us to connect with those values of strength and stability.

One of my favourite poses for a Taurus Full Moon is Tree Pose (Vriksasana) which helps us to embody the grounded and stable qualities of Taurus while promoting balance, self-assurance, and a strong connection with the Earth. .

Rituals for the Full Moon

For each Full Moon I build an altar to practice gratitude, a space where I can really feel into all the abundance of this moon cycle.

I also really love to use scent in all my rituals and this month I'll be using the sweet and buttery Taurus Wax Melts on my altar as I relax into my space.

Taurus is all about how we connect to our sense of stability and safety in the world, so it's a nice idea to honour that energy by maybe doing something in the home that gives you that sense of all is well in my world.

Lastly, Taurus is an Earth sign so getting out in nature, connecting with the earth and creating routine and structures around something in life are nice ways to connect with this energy.

Crystal for the Full Moon in Taurus

I've chosen Rose Quartz for this Full Moon for promoting love, self-acceptance, and harmony during this eclipse.

It can help you create a deeper connection with yourself, improve your self-worth, and create a sense of stability and emotional balance in your life as we go deep into this Taurus energy.

Journal Prompts for the Taurus Full Moon

Your journaling prompts for this Full Moon are all around your sense of security and self-worth.

1. What aspects of my life feel stable and secure, and which areas might need more grounding and stability?

2. How do I currently view my self-worth and self-esteem?

3. Are there any self-limiting beliefs I need to release to improve these aspects of my life?

Oracle Card Message for this Full Moon

Waxing Crescent Moon

Full Moon in Taurus Oracle Card

Card Description - Don't give up! The situation you're asking about is still taking shape - you're nowhere near the end of the story. Whatever is happening now is just a step along the way. As they say in the self-help classics, 'Everything will be okay in the end; if it's not okay, it's not the end.' However, the Waxing Crescent Moon card is a reminder that you must still keep working towards whatever it is that you want. If you can't take practical steps, spend time meditating on the question you're asking about and allow your higher self to download information to you about your best next step. Overall this card suggests there is every reason to be hopeful for a very positive outcome to the situation you're asking about, so keep the faith!

I hope that you have a wonderful and magical Taurus Full Moon!

Until the New Moon
