This Taurus Full Moon is exact on Oct 24 9:45 am PDT. Taurus Full Moon simultaneously illuminates the innermost chambers of our body as a temple to experience cosmic bliss and is a time of expressing gratitude to Mother Earth and all the blessings of the past year. This time is an invitation be take the grounded action needed for transformation and healing in your personal life and the collective consciousness (particularly relating to ancestral bloodlines in the realms of love, connection pleasure & sensuality).
Taurus Moon (sensuality) + Scorpio Sun (sexuality) = one of the most potent sign combinations in the zodiac! This is an alchemical union of primordial and mystical energy that can set your soul on fire into ecstatic freedom!
Also called the Full Hunter's Moon which is derived from the approach of winter signaled the possibility of going hungry in pre-Industrial times. This moon was generally associated with great honour, serving as an important feast day in both northern Europe and among many Native American tribes.
Traditionally, Native American hunters used the full moon of October to stalk deer to prepare for the coming winter. Because the fields were traditionally harvested in late September or early October, hunters could also easily see deer and foxes (and other animals) that came out in the full moon to the fields of fallen grains.
This Taurus moon (ruled by Venus) activates our earthy, sensual nature. It is time to delight in and take exquisite care of our bodies and the body of Mother Earth. There is a powerful portal open for prayer, forgiveness, celebration, self-love, sensuality, earthy eroticism and grounded bliss.
With the sun in scorpio, this full moon shines on our deepest feelings and sacred desires related to pleasure, connection, and freedom. It can bring up where you limit these essential parts of your life so you can release them and make new choices for your life that support your Sovereignty and Empowerment. You may feel an urge to sing and dance in both release and rejoice. To make love or to sob. Whatever is your truth, express your feelings with your body. When you allow this to flow through you, you activate healing and transformation within and all around you and our greater collective.
Utilize the power of this moon for your deep growth.
You are are guided and graced!

Full Moon Ritual Suggestions
Make Space: Initiate Release and create beauty at the same time by going through your cupboards, closet, garage etc... and let go of the excess. Spaciousness feels so good and you open yourself up to more internal power and creative life-force.
Be Still: With so much frequency shift happening now, simply closing your eyes to pay attention to your breath to pause for 5 minutes will do wonders for your nervous system (especially if you can do this 3 times a day, and longer than 5 if possible. Do what you can). Make sure to get a long and full sleep.
Burn It Up. Affirm Your Truth: Write a list of the mental baggage that is happening inside that mind of yours. Beliefs, stories, habits. All that you are done with! Free it up. Give it voice. Let it out! Let it go and burn it (safely) with a candle or campfire or fireplace. Then proceed to ritual below.
Gem Stone Reminder: Put out your gem stones and jewels in a window or in water for cleansing, renewal, and activation. Place an apple and glass of water in the moonlight and have it for a 'Moon Wisdom' breakfast the next morning.
Commune: Gather in an intentional way with loved ones and do any of the above together and create your own. Now can be a powerful time to be with the energy of the collective.
Full Moon rituals can be done the day before, of and after the actual full moon. This is the 3 day potency period. Blessings to you in this wondrous and magical time.
