Taurus “Earth Mother’s Moon” Lunar Eclipse Full Moon @ 16 degrees ~ November 8, 2022, at 3:02 AM PST/6:02 AM EST
The Taurus Full Moon is a Lunar Eclipse and sets up the second bookend to the Scorpio New Moon Solar Eclipse from October 25, 2022. This week your Scorpio New Moon plus your Taurus New Moon intentions from April 30, 2022, are coming to fruition. During that time from April 2022, the Cosmos assisted you to project your faith into the future to help you change your personal outcomes.
The Taurus Full Moon is represented by the 6 of Pentacles of the Minor Arcana in the Tarot. This Tarot card embodies the energy of charity and the act of giving and receiving. In the Scorpio New Moon energy field, the Cosmos was activating the rebirthing of the community spirit in the human collective. The keywords for the 6 of Pentacles Tarot card are generosity, charity, community, material help, support, sharing, giving and receiving, and gratitude. Where are you at with expressing these keywords in your life? How are they showing up? If not, put into your personal practice the daily embodiment of 1-3 of these powerful words.

The Scorpio Sun shines a light on the past with the presence of the South Node and the Soul Retriever to the Underworld, Mercury in Scorpio. The Sun in Scorpio is represented by the 6 of Cups in the Minor Arcana of the Tarot. This is the energy of remembering the past of the Child archetype. Mercury wants to retrieve your happiest memories as a child. These memories create an emotional elixir to heal your soul. What memories are coming back up for you?
Uranus: Kaboom Surprises & Changes!
At the time of the Taurus Full Moon, Uranus is the planet that takes center stage. Uranus rules Aquarius where the ancient ruler, Saturn, currently holds court. Aquarius is about your greatest wishes, hopes, and dreams. When you merge with that part of your Soul, you can change the future to follow that greater trajectory of joy.
Uranus reenacts the energy of forming a tension-filled 90-degree square to Saturn. Saturn, now direct, is in charge of this alignment. In Greek mythology, it was Gaia, the mother of Cronos/Saturn, who instructed her son to kill his father, Uranus, the Sky God. Gaia is the goddess of the Earth. Uranus in Taurus is symbolic of the reunion of Gaia and the Sky God. Saturn is Cronos sent in to stop the Sky God with a 90-degree square. Saturn becomes the key to wrestling this energy and grabbing the bull Uranus by the horns!
Saturn is the World Card in the Tarot – the last of the Major Arcana. In this card, the Divine Feminine is set free and dancing in the center of her universe. Mars will activate the power of Saturn’s global energy when he retreats back to 18 degrees Gemini on December 1, 2022. After the Eclipse, emotional energy will begin to calm down, especially when you find yourself in the center of your own world. Begin celebrating now, as messages of peace will be flowing your way culminating in December.

Tarot: The Empress and the Hierophant
In the Tarot, Venus and her ruling sign, Taurus are represented by the Empress and the Hierophant in the Major Arcana. The Empress is the Queen of all the queens in the Tarot deck. She is the embodiment of the Divine Feminine: Maiden, Mother, and Crone. The Hierophant is the law-giver and maker of rules that govern institutions and long-standing governmental bodies. The Hierophant stands for traditions and conventions. As the card for Taurus, the energy of the Hierophant is about sustainability and growth over time. Hierophant power can stand the test of time. The Empress, Venus, is the divine ruler of the Hierophant energy. When the Empress is allowed to be in charge, the traditions and conventions will be in service to the self-worth and havingness of all people.
Venus in Scorpio: 7 of Cups
Venus in Scorpio represents the 7 of Cups in the Minor Arcana in the Tarot. To Tarot readers, this card is known as the “Gaslighting Card”. Venus is guiding you to see where illusion exists in your life. These illusions appear as temptations, desires for material possessions, and the lying voice inside your head that brainwashes you that you are not good enough. What are the ways that society tells you that you are not enough? Do you feel you need to buy this and that to feel better inside? Corporate marketing holds mastery in the energy of the 7 of Cups.
Neptune RX lends Venus a hand to keep her looking in the mirror of illusions and deceptions. Neptune shows you that you can make real whatever you imagine. Don’t let your inner knowing, your Third Eye, become clouded with believing you need something or someone outside yourself to bring your inner fulfillment.

FULL MOON SABIAN SYMBOL: 16 degrees Taurus
“A Battle of Swords and Torches”
We must learn to discern between what ennobles us, and what betrays the spirit.
The Lunar Eclipse Full Moon shines emotional light on the battles that wage within and around you in the world. The Eclipse degree helps you with the longest-running war — the battle between good and evil. The Taurus Moon exalts your Soul’s ability to triumph over controlling forces and propaganda. Now is the time to focus your body, mind, and Soul on what is good in you, in others, and in the world. Give thanks and gratitude for the blessings that are already all around you. The best choice you can make is to return to your “why”. The most primal question is, ‘Why did I incarnate?’
The Scorpio Sun with Mercury expresses your power to be solely responsible for your mental and emotional energy. This is about taking ownership of how you utilize life force energy. Are you aware of the energy you emit? Do you call back your energy, especially when you contributed something negative to the collective field? Scorpio teaches you how to retrieve your energy, call it back, and transmute it to a higher octave. Travel the next step on your path to becoming more aware of your personal energy so that you can face the world in your wholeness. Be a unified field of life force light!
The image of “swords and torches” is symbolic of Swords and Wands in the Tarot. The upcoming Sagittarius New Moon will put into the collective consciousness the power of the 9 of Wands (Torches). This is harmonically matched with the Mars RX journey in Gemini which embodies the 9 of Swords (Swords). To learn more about how this energy affects you, get my Mars Rx Journey Wellness workbook.
Watch out for December 7-8, 2022 when the Sagittarius Sun (torches) opposes Gemini Mars RX and the Full Moon (swords) at 15 degrees!
