There’s an important and volatile full moon in Taurus culminating late Friday night into early Saturday morning that has all the earmarks of an “October Surprise”. Normally a Taurus Full Moon lights up issues surrounding material security. This one is no different in essence, but the form it takes may not be the most comfortable, soothing or conservative energy to enhance or shift that security. The degree of this full moon occurs at an exact conjunction with the planet Uranus. Uranian themes color the entire weekend with ramifications that last into the future. The style with which Uranus colors life events are to expect the unexpected, a roller coaster ride, chaos, things reverse and move in an opposite direction, a 180° shift, divorces, separations, earthquakes, sudden out of the blue events, break-ups, break-outs, break-downs break-throughs, enlightenment and epiphanies. Just last night here in NYC high winds sent a crane tossing and turning high above a tall skyscraper, knocking debris off that came falling from the sky. Luckily no one was hurt but this is the type of energy of which I’m talking. Also, the temperatures here in the northeast are plummeting at least 30° in a short amount of time and a cold wet rain is turning into snow in many areas with the sudden and shocking shift in temperature.
Personally, these disruptive events happen in the house that the full moon occurs. This is an erratic energy and we are taken off guard by what the surprise is, so in some ways it’s hard to be prepared. Yet, the catchphrase “expect the unexpected” is the best way to deal with things and therefore it is a highly predictive type of energy. Let’s see how this plays out on the political front with Election Day only 4 days away concurrent with a Mercury direct station.
This also can be the type of awareness that shakes and knocks you out of a rut that you’ve been stuck in for a very long time. If you’ve been sinking in quicksand then revelations occurring now may be just the right thing to shock you into an important shift and change. The Taurus energy this time around is about not being complacent. It’s essential to make change to the status quo. Business as usual is over and you may need some kind of revolutionary energy to deliver the freedom needed to break you away from the shackles that bind you to a burdensome material existence. It’s about a reinvention of the material world and its resources that support you. Taurus is a very physical and body oriented sign therefore much of this energy may be sourced through the body in terms of diet, physical activity, nutrition and disease. As a money-oriented sign let’s continue to monitor the stock markets and our own personal bank accounts. On a more deeply psychological level pay attention to your inner self worth and self-esteem by being more creatively inventive about your innate talents, resources and gifts. You may be surprised as to what your true calling really is as you learn to apply those talents in new and innovative ways.
One last image is that of an electric lightning bolt thrown from the sky thrusting into a giant redwood tree. Instead of splicing it in half and burning it down there is a reanimation of life and matter that brings a rebirth. Dr. Frankenstein tried to bring the dead back to life with dire consequences. It’s not about playing God in a way where you are looking for unbridled power outside yourself but about looking to see how your inner God/Goddess can enlighten the power within making it sourced from the heart center thereby benefiting yourself and society at large.
