You may sense a whoosh of momentum towards a goal or activity; go with it but shortcuts must not compromise the integrity.
Conversations concerning money, mergers and commitment require responsibility. It is not advisable to give away the store unless your partner puts equal collateral on the table. Even then, sober judgment trumps wishes without substance.
This is the tension of Taurus Full Moon energy, which invites integration of seemingly opposite forces. Taurus is an earth sign that sits solidly in the realm of what you can see, touch, smell and taste. Focus tends to be on the material, what you gather and consider yours and how comfortable you are in your physical body. Your income and orientation to money may be a consideration, as well as the possessions in place to allow satisfaction.
With the opposition to the Scorpio Sun, the moon is lit with an awareness of the effects that other people may have on your sense of security.
The Taurus Full Moon occurs at 5:23 p.m. ET.
The Sabian Symbol** for the Moon is “Head Covered With A Rakish Silk Hat, Muffled Against The Cold, A Man Braves A Storm”. This image speaks to the individuality of what gives a person a sense of security. The man is protected from the cold but he does it with his own style; not everyone would sport a silk chapeau. This is an active symbol for the Taurus Moon because there is a dogged determination in confronting the elements, whatever the reason.
Taurus is a tenacious energy which allows us to call in the tools needed to plow through the task. This is a powerful time to bring to earth your plan for a long-term goal, but be prepared to weather it.
The Sabian Symbol** for the Sun is “Children Playing Around Five Mounds Of Sand”. This is a rather lively image for a Scorpio symbol. Many see the sign as dark and intense. Keep in mind however, that this symbol is an ephemeral one. The children who frolic today are rapidly the voters of tomorrow. Their carefree days accelerate quickly. This is the undertone of this image. Mounds of sand are arguably the least constant earth. A strong wind or decisive kick changes the landscape in an instant.
As a result, this symbol speaks to the transitory nature of what we consider ours, like a child’s youthful exuberance. It is impossible to fully comprehend the perspective of age until we’ve lived it. The tension created by the Taurus Moon with this Sun demands a commitment to the present and a plan to gather wealth regardless of how formidable the landscape. The Scorpio Sun reminds us to keep the joy in the process.
Finally, the number 5 evokes an awareness of Spirit within. The connection to that which is within each of us is what enables successful integration. You don’t have to know how it is going to work, you just have to be willing to do what’s necessary to show that this is what you want.
Whether or not you invite conversation, this Full Moon is highly supportive when you consider strategic alliances to strengthen your wealth and health.
