The Full Moon in Taurus is happening on November 8, 2022 at 6:02 am EST. This month, the Beaver’s Moon, sometimes called the Frost Moon or Snow Moon, represents the coming of winter, and the persistence and discipline of the beaver in preparing for the season ahead. Beavers work in cooperation and harmony to create the dams and lodges as their shelters, and this full moon is illuminating the importance of persistence, patience, and cooperation.
Total Lunar Eclipse in Taurus
This month, the full moon is accompanied by a total lunar eclipse. During a Total Lunar Eclipse, the moon moves behind the Earth, into its shadow, as the Earth is positioned between the moon and the sun. Total Lunar Eclipses signify change and transformation. This is a time where a journey is coming to an end, and shifts or breakthroughs are bound to happen. Expect change in your emotions and feelings about a situation, and a shift in your thinking.
Right after the full moon, we’ll be having the 11/11 portal, which is already open, but on 11/11 everything will be heightened. Read this post to learn about the 11/11 portal, and 6 important things to consider on that day.
The Significance of a Full Moon
Full moons are a time to let go and release old energy. With full moons, we shed the things that no longer resonate with us to make room for things that do.
Our subconscious awareness is more perceptible, and we experience increased intuition and sensitivity. Things that have been disguised by darkness are now brought to light, giving you the clarity to see what must go.
Taurus Energy: The Grounded Lover
Taurus is the second sign of the zodiac, ruling the second house of possessions, self-worth, and earned income. The second house also bears weight on our sense of security and confidence. Taurus is a fixed Earth sign. Fixed signs are focused and persistent, while Earth signs are grounded, stable, and solid. This makes Taurus very grounded and hard working.
When we think of Earth, we think of resourcefulness, materialism, efficiency, and reliability. Taurus energy is associated with giving and receiving, abundance, financial security, construction, and hands-on training. Sensual pleasures, the physical body, and nature are connected to Taurus as well. Being that Taurus rules over the five senses, comfort is imperative for those with Taurean energy.
Taurus is ruled by the planet Venus, a planet of love, beauty, and harmony. Venus guides creativity through its attunement with our heart center. It encourages us to create with love and reminds us of the things we value, are attracted to, and that emotionally fulfill us.
When the Moon Is In Taurus
The Moon is exalted in Taurus, meaning that it shines bright in this sign. It’s interesting because the moon fluctuates so much, yet Taurus is grounded and stable. But Taurus is a feminine, allowing its energy to align well with the moon.
Though feminine, Taurus does not prefer to express emotions. Be mindful during this full moon that you are not holding back any emotions. When we repress our emotions, we create blockages in our subtle body. The more blockages we create, the more potential for disease to fester. Allow yourself to cry, scream, or do whatever you need to release any emotions you’ve been holding on to. It’s okay to not have it all together. It’s okay to show emotion.
Also, find out what keeps you grounded. We need to be rooted in our being to be strong and to withstand any trials that we may face. With this Full Moon, consider the support that you have around you. Are there any people in your circle creating weakened roots? Is it time to let them go to ensure that your foundation is stable?
Additionally, what are some values that you possess that might be outdated? We form many of our beliefs and values during childhood based on what we’ve been taught. Consider if it is time to release or transcend your current values to develop ones that are in alignment with who you are in the present moment.
The Moon in Taurus craves comfort and stability. This is a great time to release anything disrupting your sense of peace and security to ensure that you gain the balance you need to thrive abundantly. Anything that isn’t in cooperation with the path that you’re headed on needs to go.
Numerology During the Taurus Full Moon
November 8th, 2022 is a number 7 day. The 7 energy is introverted, contemplative, and in tune with the soul. It thrives in solitude and in seeking answers. But before we get to 7, we get 25/7, for November 8th, 2022. The 2 energy is intuitive, sensitive, and emotional. The 5 energy is all about freedom, expression, adventure, and change.
Use this energy to free heavy emotions, and to explore your sensitivity and intuition. Find the stability that exists within your core and become grounded in your truth so that you are unwavering whenever someone tries to question or change it. Again, what is it that you value? What is important to you?
3 Ways to Harness This Energy:
1. Take time to slow down.
Though the moon typically moves quite fast, Taurus helps it to reduce its speed, allowing for a space of mindfulness. This is a great time to be intentional about everything that you do. Spend time noticing what you are doing and why you are doing it. What is the purpose? How does it serve you or others?
We live in such a fast paced society where we are often running on auto-pilot, doing things out of habit, usually without thinking. Use this energy to grant yourself the permission to take it slow.
Taurus is a methodical sign that acts with purpose. Be purposeful in your actions. Notice your emotions and what they’re trying to tell you. Find some time to just breathe and meditate on the fact that you are a living being on Earth with the ability to sense and feel, and the potential to create a beautiful life full of love and abundance.
2. Move with the cyclical rhythms of life.
Again, the moon fluctuates constantly, reminding us that everything has a rhythm or a pattern. Recognize the natural patterns of life, such as the seasons, the highs and low, our bodily functions like breathing and sleeping – it’s all rhythmical.
During this full moon, know when to take action and know when to rest. Find a balance between going with the flow and being persistent in perseverance.
In a world that’s focused on the rat race and getting to the finish line, we might push ourselves too hard, while forcing things to happen instead of just riding the wave. This is a great time to release the idea that you always have to be doing something. Recognize that rest is productive and actually needed in order to continue moving forward.
3. Review your possessions.
Ruling the second house of possessions, Taurus can sometimes hold onto things longer than necessary. But when we do this, we clutter our energetic field, in turn leaving us weighed down and burdened with all we have around us.
Remember, lunar eclipses bring breakthroughs and transformations. Think about what material possessions are no longer of value to you. This is a time to clean house, and get rid of old items with stagnant energy.
It can be hard for Taurus to let go, but shifts and change are supported with this full moon. Create an environment to welcome new energy as you release old things that have served their purpose in your life. Release things with joy, and know that you are cultivating space for fresh energy to emerge, and for the Universe to supply you with abundance.
Affirmation of the Month:
“I have enough, I do enough, I am enough.”
“I trust that the Universe will always provide for me.”
“I am secure and grounded in who I am.”
The Taurus Full Moon Lunar Eclipse invites us to slow down, come back to our center, and to reassess what is important and valuable to us. This is a special time where we can get comfortable with who we really are, and to unroot any dead foundation that doesn’t contribute to our evolution. Take the time to ensure that you are deeply rooted within yourself as we continue this planetary shift. Be secure in how you feel and what you think, and remember that it is okay to both feel and express your emotions.
