This full moon is wild one. It is the Blood Moon & Lunar eclipse, taking place in the sign of Taurus, just a few days before Samhain. A lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth positions itself between the Sun and the Moon, casting a shadow on the moon's surface. The moon takes on a reddish hue during this lunar eclipse, inspiring the name “Blood Moon.” During this time, we are encouraged to delve deep into our earthly desires and emotions, embracing the grounded energy of the Taurian Bull. 

Taurus, the steadfast and indulgent zodiac sign ruled by Venus, embodies stability, sensuality, and a strong connection to the material realm. Represented by the Bull, Taurus epitomizes grounded determination and an appreciation for life's pleasures. As an Earth element sign, Taurus encourages us to embrace the physical world, grounding our dreams into reality and seeking fulfillment in the tangible aspects of life.

Astrologically, the Moon symbolizes our emotions, intuition, and subconscious mind. During this full moon & lunar eclipse, our desires and passions are amplified, unveiling hidden parts of our psyche that may have been lying dormant. This eclipse provides an opportunity to confront our true longings and needs, leading us toward a deeper understanding of ourselves and our connection to the material world.

Eclipse in Taurus: Embracing Sensuality & Nurturing Connections

This lunar eclipse also casts a spotlight on themes of sensuality, pleasure, and material comfort. It invites us to celebrate our bodies and revel in the beauty of the physical world around us. This is a time to explore what truly nourishes our souls and to embrace our sensual nature without guilt or restraint.

Taurus, being a sign that values security and stability, also urges us to evaluate our relationship with money, possessions, and the material realm. This eclipse encourages us to strike a balance between indulgence and restraint, finding ways to honor our desires while maintaining financial harmony.

During this time, we can deepen our connections with nature, reminding us of the bonds we share with the Earth and all living beings.

Harnessing Eclipse Energy:

Here are some ways you can harness the energy of this cosmic event: 

  1. Honor your Venusian side and embrace sensuality: Engage in activities that awaken your senses, such as enjoying decadent meals, indulging in self-care, & physical touch.

  2. Reevaluate Financial Goals: Take a look at your financial habits and set intentions to change what needs to be changed in order for you to grow.

  3. Connect with Nature: Spend time outdoors, meditate under the moonlight, and get grounded. Simply walking barefoot on the earth can help ground your energy.

  4. Release: Eclipses and Full Moons are both about breaking cycles, creating change, and letting go. Use this double dose of celestial energy to walk away from anything that is no longer serving you and to let go of the ghosts of the past. 

Happy Full Moon, Magickal Ones!
