"The planets are in motion, and we find ourselves swirling amidst a potent celestial event."
The planets are in motion, and we find ourselves swirling amidst a potent celestial event – the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Taurus, which perfects on October 28. If you are sensitive to cosmic energy or the people around you, you’re probably already feeling the tensions of this eclipse. It’s the grand finale to a drama that started in November 2021 when the nodes of the moon first entered the opposing signs of Scorpio and Taurus. The nodes have now moved on but we still have this one final eclipse in Taurus to put an exclamation point on the changes that that transit has wrought in our lives. Join me in exploring how we can ground ourselves during this intense energy, drawing inspiration from Greek mythology, and the fascinating celestial alignments of this moment.
While Taurus is commonly associated with a deep connection to nature, Scorpio might not seem as obvious at first. However, the ancient myths tell us a different story. Scorpio, often depicted as the scorpion, has a profound connection to nature, making it a great patron and protector of the natural world. In Greek mythology, Scorpio was linked to Orion, a mighty hunter who threatened the environment. It was Moon Goddess Artemis who sent the scorpion to stop Orion and protect her companions, the Pleiades. Scorpio emerged victorious, becoming the guardian of the natural order.
During this Full Moon Lunar Eclipse, the cosmic dance is further enriched by a powerful alignment. Mercury and Mars join forces in Scorpio, while at the same time, they oppose Jupiter in Taurus. This unique configuration emphasizes the need for deep self-expression and transformation, much like the battle between Scorpio and Orion. It’s a time for us to confront our inner conflicts, release fixed energies, and embrace the transformative power of this celestial event.
To ground ourselves during this transformative time, consider the following tips:
1. Connect with the Earth: Kick off your shoes and walk barefoot in the grass or on the sand. Feel the earth beneath your feet to establish a strong connection with nature.
2. Release Fixed Energy: Find a body of water and gently toss stones into it. As you release each stone, visualize letting go of fixed emotions, allowing the energy to flow freely.
3. Vocalize Your Emotions: The combination of Mars and Mercury in Scorpio encourages self-expression. Try howling into the wind, standing on a cliff, or by the ocean. Let your voice carry your emotions away, liberating your soul.
4. Embrace Your Tears: If you’re carrying the weight of trauma, grief, loss, or any other heavy emotions, don’t be afraid to shed tears. Allow your tears to cleanse and release you from these burdens.
The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Taurus, with its celestial alignments and connections to Artemis and Scorpio, invites us to reconnect with the Earth and embrace the transformative power of the cosmos. Nature is our greatest teacher, and Scorpio is the guardian of its mysteries.
Stay grounded, embrace the cosmic dance, and let the energy of this Eclipse guide you to a deeper connection with yourself and the world around you.
Wishing you a transformative and grounded Full Moon Lunar Eclipse experience.
Peace my friends,
