Full Moon In Taurus Conjunct Uranus – Something Has To Change
The Full Moon in Taurus on October 24 will feel like escaping from the matrix. This is the moment of truth your soul has been waiting for.
You may wonder how is it possible to have such an out of the ordinary experience with a Full Moon in Taurus. After all, Taurus is the most stable sign of the zodiac. Taurus is a Fixed sign that resists change.
Taurus is also an Earth sign, as steady and immobile as the earth. The combination of Fixed and Earth energy makes Taurus the most stable, steady and unchangeable energy of the zodiac.
But the twist is the conjunction with Uranus. This is a very tight conjunction, the Full Moon is at 1°13’ Taurus and Uranus is at 0°32’ Taurus. That’s only 0°41’ difference!
Basically, the Full Moon in Taurus is exactly conjunct Uranus, the great awakener, the great disruptor. Uranus is the planet of change, revolution, and liberation. Uranus is the bolt of lightning in the dark that brings illumination. Something has to change. And that thing that has to change is exactly that thing you believed to be immune to change.
The Sabian symbol of the Full Moon, “An electrical storm”, couldn’t have been more appropriate. The electrical storm is Uranus, a symbol for the cosmic power able to transform the natural law, opening it up to celestial opportunities.
Imagine a cow peacefully grazing on a meadow. Suddenly a storm breaks. The sky is falling. That’s Uranus. Suddenly, she sees that there is more to life than the meadow. Her world will never be the same again. Uranus conjunct the Moon will awaken that part of us we thought was inert, immovable and unchangeable.
We are naturally wired to avoid change, to believe it is bad for us. But the truth is that in the higher laws of the Universe, whatever happens, however disruptive, it serves our higher good.
Depending on how open you are to change, you can experience Uranus as a negative, unexpected event that turns your life upside down, or as an enlightening positive event, that lifts the veil of illusion and opens up new possibilities.
Full Moon In Taurus – Out Of The Cage
There is another image that comes to mind for this Full Moon in Taurus. The bird escaping from her cage.
The bird lived most of her life in a safe cage. She didn’t know any different. One day she finally notices the cage door. It was open all this time.
This doesn’t mean she shouldn’t have spent half of her life inside the cage.
Maybe living in a cage served her goals well. Maybe she was not ready for the world outside.
Yet, there comes a time when awakening is inevitable. We cannot keep our eyes shut any longer. We are ready to move on. And we do.
Something that otherwise couldn’t be seen, will finally become clear to you under the shiny beams of the Full Moon. The breakthrough doesn’t have to invalidate your previous existence. You did nothing wrong. There’s nothing wrong with you. Yet, you are now ready to become someone else.
Resisting this natural pull towards change will only make the transition to the next version of yourself more difficult. Uranus is the light of consciousness, the divine insight that cannot be ignored.
A Resolution To Venus Retrograde
The experience will be even more dramatic considering the Full Moon opposes her own ruler, Venus (now retrograde in Scorpio and in her last days of the Aries cycle) AND is square the Nodes of Karma.
This is a once-in-a-lifetime moment that will help you break through layers and layers of conditioning and help you change at a deep level.
There is no coincidence that the Full Moon takes place exactly when a 19-month Venus cycle is coming to an end. One and a half days after the Full Moon, Venus starts a new 19-month cycle around the Sun.
We need something as powerful as a Full Moon, as powerful as Uranus, as powerful as a square to the Nodes to break out of the status quo. Sometimes, all the needed elements align in a powerful way to make change possible. This is one of those moments.
The Full Moon in Taurus is in a way all about Venus retrograde. Venus turned retrograde on October 5 and has been dancing with Uranus and with the Nodes ever since. But it’s not until now, when we have the Full Moon in Taurus, that all the pieces of the puzzle finally come together.
The meaning of Venus retrograde will finally be revealed to you. If you’ve been feeling confused, overwhelmed and shattered in the last three weeks, now you will finally understand WHY.
In the myth of Inanna’s descent into the Underworld, this is the moment when Inanna is struck dead by her alter-ego Ereshkigal, a symbol of her unintegrated shadow. In the same way, Uranus will strike us with its light.
A shadow is nothing else but the light we cannot see.
Light and darkness are two sides of the same coin. It is when you finally bring the two together that you can transform your life in a deep, authentic way. And this is what the Full Moon in Taurus will help you with.
