Full Moon in Taurus ~ Dare to Desire

Our Full Moon in Taurus brings along with it the culmination of comfort fueled by deeper desires and cultivated through determination, hard work, and sustained efforts over the past 6 months.

We all have similar basic needs in life… food, water, shelter, and love. But what about those of us who crave so much more than just the bare minimum needed to get by (or don’t even feel we have even that)? Unfortunately, our deepest desires are not promised to us simply because we exist, but we all do have the power to earn the things we want just by putting in enough effort over time.

As this year begins the process of wrapping up, we can now look back and see all that we have done to reach our goals. Have you worked diligently to make your most delicious dreams come true? Or has the distraction of instant gratification thrown you off course from savoring the sweet victory of tasting the fruits of your labor?

This Full Moon asks us to take an inventory on where we have been focusing our efforts and to examine where the work we have been putting in day by day has brought us up until this point in order to celebrate the wins… and perhaps also to realize where we have been letting ourselves down by settling for what has seemed to be the ‘easy’ way out.

FULL MOON in Taurus // November 3/4, 2017 @ 10:24 pm PT // 1:24 am ET / 5:24 am UK // 4:24 pm AEDT

Putting in the hard work to build a life worth loving. In order to set a solid goal, we must first check in with ourselves to understand what we want and name the things we’re craving deep beneath the surface. Then, we need to get clear on what it will take and what we’re actually willing to do to get it. However, the most important part is what comes after that.

Taurus is an Earth sign that is deeply determined to get what they want. They can be slow to move forward at times, but once they’ve settled on bringing an idea forth, they will stop at nothing until they see the final product come to life. This may mean putting in long days sitting at their desk every. single. day. making sure every detail is meticulously crafted – or – simply showing up for a spare hour here and there to push things forward bit by bit, even if it seems like there is no end in sight anytime soon.

Our Full Moon in Taurus will remind us of the beauty that is possible when we put in sustained effort over time, and the glory we can experience when we actually allow ourselves to put our whole selves into making our dreams a reality.

If you really want something, do you actually show up and do the work day by day to make it happen – even when it’s really hard or seems utterly impossible? Do you pride yourself on making every single detail matter along the way – regardless of how minor it may be – because of the love you have for your creation? Or do you look for shortcuts and loopholes to get to the finish line faster, sacrificing part of your creative integrity in the process?

Thanks to a harmonious angle between the Sun and Neptune, the wonderful thing about this slow and sensual Full Moon in Taurus, in particular, is that we are given the opportunity to celebrate our wins so far and to continue envisioning a future where we truly are where we crave to be – even if we have somehow still fallen short of it as of yet.

It’s so NOT a time to beat yourself up for not having worked harder this year or getting mad at yourself for having given up on some of your dreams because they were inconvenient. It’s simply a time to check in and remind yourself of what you truly desire and re-consider what more you could be doing to create a more comfortable and enjoyable life for yourself, no matter how rocky the path ahead may appear.

Unless you are already smugly sitting back and celebrating having reached every goal you’ve set out to accomplish in 2017, you can use this ferocious Full Moon to become inspired by the steadiness of the bull and his amazing ability to train its gaze on a meaningful destination, knowing full well you will eventually get there someday as long as you continue to believe you will – and to appreciate each and every day you’re able to make progress along the way.

On this Full Moon, look for answers around:

  • “What have I been doing to honor my deeper desires over the past 6 months?”
  • “What more am I craving in terms of love, money, and comfort in my life + career?”
  • “What physical steps do I need to take to be able to enjoy my life and savor my success more?”
  • “How can I remind myself to keep going even when it feels hard or impossible along the way?”

On a wider scale, this Full Moon will signal the completion of a cycle that began on the New Moon in Taurus on April 26, 2017. Look back for a moment… what were you beginning to work on then? Perhaps some of it has already begun to come true, but now is the time to see it come full circle.
