Collective Energies:

This Taurus full moon awakens the need for love, connection, and pleasure. Taurus comes from the word “tau” from Greek that was originally from Hebrew and was a pictogram for sexual intercourse: the vulva and the bar of the phallus. (How’s that for showing off some of my thesis work on etymology? :P ) Venus-ruled Taurus energy puts us in touch with how we work with the erotic energy that is Earthly life.

While that may sound just fine and dandy, beware the Taurus shadow side of people pleasing, vanity, or materialism. When the needs for connection aren’t met, Taurus moon may be prone to relying on sugar, shopping, or other addictions. Instead, lean into Taurus’ resourceful and stabilizing side of this sign to explore attraction and needs that come from a place of connection rather than seduction. Another way Taurus attempts to get connected is through its own objectification or using sexuality instead of inner strength, a false sense of magnetism.

Tightly conjunct Uranus, this full moon may evoke restlessness (even though Taurus can be prone to laziness) or accentuate erotic eccentricities, might be best to channel the energy into emotional awareness or creativity. Stay attuned towards the emotions cultivating awareness while doing your best to relax the nervous system, as these are two things that often come up with strong Uranus-Moon contacts. Uranus often believes it is in it alone, or a lone wolf, instead remember the need for connection that Venus/Taurus activates.

This moon has a double Venus vibrancy as it is in Taurus and also opposite retrograding Venus in Scorpio. Perhaps indicating the remainder of this lunar phase with the heavy focus on relationships and intimacy-with the self and the other. Venus also has a supportive trine with Saturn reminding us that the slow, long-term burn is actually better than love at first sight (a Uranus in Taurus theme). The moon also squares the North and South Nodes and adds yet another layer to releasing the past and moving towards an aligned future.

This full moon evokes our erotic nature and perhaps with it our eccentricities around love. It plays with the polarity of commitment and freedom in relationships. Below are some ways to work with what could feel disorienting or disconnecting while Taurus craves stability and love above all else. Though we may lean into a desire to possess in order to self sooth, evoke your own sense of possession and love during this pique of lunar energy.

Everyday Ritual Recommendations:

BE // Practice mindfulness of the senses such as eating, meditation, or closing the eyes to sense and listen more deeply

DO // Awaken your pleasures whether it be good food, music, or sex (solo or with a partner)

EAT // Decadent tastes excite Taurus such as chocolate or floral flavors, or access the excitable Uranus energy by eating something new.

WEAR // Something that feels soft or receptive and spunky. Possibilities may include: pastels, pinks, floral patterns (who cares if it is fall!, or bold stripes

Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn, July 4th & 5th, 2020: Overcoming Obstacles
Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn, July 4th & 5th, 2020: Overcoming Obstacles

July 02, 2020 0 Comments

This is a big one kids, hold onto your shorts! July and August are gearing up to be some of the more intense months of the year. This is a build-up of energy that’s been taking place for the better part of the last two and a half years. This is the final Capricorn eclipse for years to come, and she will close with a bang. Full Moon Lunar eclipses are often riddled with physical events that come to a close. Unlike Solar eclipses, which are more on the emotional side, these types of lunation bring about massive changes in the physical World. In the sign of Capricorn, it will have an authoritarian vibe to it. Some of you in the weeks ahead will see a boiling point with your relationships to superiors. For every one of you, Capricorn takes place within the twelve houses of your natal astrology chart. This is where knowing your astrological placements is essential. Even if you’re not a Capricorn or have any personal placements in that sign, this event WILL affect you. Why, you ask? Because for the better part of the last two and a half years, Saturn, the taskmaster, has been occupying that area of your chart. Saturn is along the lines of the strict authority figure in your life who wants you to

Get your sparklers ready; things are reaching some impressive heights this month. There will be moments where you can feel the energy swell to overwhelming proportions. I think everyone can benefit from keeping this in mind, focus on yourself and YOUR actions, not others. You want to be an actor, not a reactor. I liken this to not giving a toddler throwing a tantrum your attention. Anger and frustration is a funny thing. Some people handle it better than others. Some meditate. Others let it simmer until they explode. We want to watch out for any hidden intense emotions this month. The full moon lunar eclipse in Capricorn is a doozy, coming in on July 4th and 5th. I expect this to be a turning point, where the world becomes acutely aware of Saturn's tight grip. Being so close to Americas's birthday, and conjunct the USA's natal Sun, important things will be coming in the weeks ahead...

Quartz is “The Master Healer” and amplifies the energy of anything that is programmed to it, and because of its ability to be negative and positively charged, it is able to channel and store energy for use at a later time. For this exact reason, it is also ideal to use during spiritual or meditation work. It can be used to balance, cleanse, charge, and carry the intentions of anyone, or of other crystals, so it can be used for any ritual with any intention, and even as a substitute should you not have other rocks, minerals, or other talismans around...
