Happy All Hallows Eve & Full Moon in Taurus!! All Hallows Eve or Samhain, which it is called in the pagan tradition, is pagan cross quarter festival, celebrating the eternal part of life. This is a night to honor the real and eternal part of being human, as well as honoring those who walked before us, sending our love and gratitude to our departed loved ones ♡. Samhain is also considered the witches new year, and is, as such, a night to reflect upon all you have been through in the last year, what you want to leave behind, to turn over new leaves, and to celebrate all that will come to take its place, remembering that we are all a part of the never ending cycle of death and rebirth ♡ This year, this auspicious festival corresponds with October’s 2nd Full Moon in the earthy sign of Taurus, helping us to ground, release and let go.
Full Moon in Taurus
With the sun transiting the deep waters of Scorpio, October’s second Full Moon on All Hallows Eve, October 31st, in earthy Taurus will bring some much-needed grounding into our lives. Even though we are still early into Scorpio season, passionate Scorpio tends to make our emotions run high, and often bring all sorts of long buried skeletons to the surface. With the intensity of the energies at this time of the year, see if you can carve in some well-deserved me-time around this Full Moon. Let this Full Moon be your sanctuary, a breathing space where you can take a break from Scorpio’s complexity, and find back to your roots and stability through the loving Taurus Moon’s energy.
Taurus, ruled by the goddess of prosperity and love, Venus, enjoys to stay at home and treat herself, and that’s exactly what the earthy energies of this Full Moon encourages you to: Slow down, take a bath, pamper yourself. Wear your softest clothes, snuggle up with your favorite move, delicious food, and sip some vintage wine. A luxurious staycation is right down Taurus’ alley!
However, as Venus rules love, beauty and money, issues connected to these sensitive themes may surface as you start to slow down. But what if you can see everything that comes up for what it truly is: Insecurities in these areas are more often than not connected to your lack of self-worth and not feeling worthy of such abundance, rather than bad luck. Recognize all the fears and beliefs that are holding you back from reaching your true potential. Journal, breathe, and remind yourself that you are already good enough. That you are already worthy of your dreams. We all are!
So, what are you dreaming of? What changes can you make in your life to truly feel good? What choices can you make that will draw in more happiness and love? Be open. Be brave. It is your life, your dreams, your passions. The abundant energy of the Taurus Moon is here to deliver it all to us if we are brave enough to reach for it. But remember though; true happiness comes from within, so start from the inside, not with what may look good on the outside. More importantly, to get to that abundant state, we all need to heal ourselves first. We need to heal those wounds that hold on to those false believes about not being deserving of anything better than status quo.
Tune in and see if you can draw in the strong healing energies of Mother Moon. Connect with your breath, slow down your heartbeat and let yourself drop out of your head and come down into your heart. If uncomfortable emotions start to arise in the stillness of the Full Moon; see if you can sit with it. Rooted Taurus may not want to budge from her comfortable nest, but with the Sun transiting transformative Scorpio, this sign of death and rebirth is inevitably pushing for growth and transformation.
Also, Full Moons are the perfect time to release and combined with the strong energy of endings connected to All Hallows Eve, this is the night to rebirth and transform. Move out of our comfort zone, dive deep, and take a good look at everything you have swept under the carpet. See if you can relinquish control and simply surrender to the process of healing. Find the courage to release all which no longer serves you and blocks you from finding true happiness. Hit all your past rage and disappointments into a pillow. Cut some cords. Have a good cry. Visualize how the warm waters of a shower cleanse away the past. Let it go. It is time to release those long-buried skeletons in the closet – and there is no better night to do it.
Then, come home to yourself in your physical body and connect with the Divine in you. Trust that you are on your path, right where you are meant to be. Draw in Taurus’ earthly magic and truly ground yourself. Enhance your feelings of love and self-worth and promise to only go with those choices that are nourishing and rewarding for your body, mind, AND soul. It is time to open your ♡ and truly believe that you are worthy of all the abundance of the Universe.
Happy Full Moon and All Hallows Eve lovelies!
