“Scarcity of self-value cannot be remedied by money, recognition, affection, attention or influence.” ~Gary Zukav
This month’s Full Moon occurs at three degrees of Taurus. Full Moons illuminate the subconscious realms of the human psyche and highlight the areas symbolized by the zodiac sign and its planetary aspects.
Astrologically, Taurus represents the material and spiritual realms. From a material perspective it is the sign that correlates security with survival – what brings us security, or allows us to feel secure, will promote our survival. When the Moon is in Taurus we can find ourselves wanting to enjoy and relax within the sensual and material realms that we have created. Spiritually, Taurus represents the divine and sacred mysteries.
This Full Moon’s rulership to the inner side of Venus makes this an auspicious time to turn inward and focus on one’s connection with self and the divine spark within. Venus is synonymous with LOVE and when associated with Taurus she is asking us to cultivate a loving relationship with our inner-self.
Venus is also making a conjunction aspect with benefic Jupiter, the expansive philosophical planet of truth. This is a favorable time to question your values and beliefs around intimate relationships. What do you truly value and how do you love others based on your values? Expect this Full Moon to bring about inner revelations reflecting how you love yourself and love others. Most importantly, if you currently believe that your security comes from external resources then now is an excellent time to contemplate and initiate new intentions for the following:
- To appreciate beauty and the finer things in life without a need to possess or own.
- To display self-worth that radiates inner security regardless of my financial status.
- To honor and nurture my individual gifts and values.
- To love myself unconditionally.
