The full Moon in Taurus will be a time to balance the intensity of Scorpio (Sun and Saturn), with peace and stability. We can relax into a deeper contentment now and feel into the heart without fear and worry.
This Full Moon is in Mrigashira nakshatra, ruled by the God Soma, the God of the immortal nectar. There is an innocent searching quality to this Nakshatra. In Taurus the quest is slower and more related to worldly happiness and pleasure.
Thus now is a great time to feel the transcendent beauty of the world, and connect to the depth of your heart.
There is also an aspect from Saturn and Jupiter onto to this Full Moon, making it a time of inspiration, duty and commitment.
Now is a good time to reconnect with the deep, silent, inspiring, unmoving center.
When the sun is in Taurus there’s focus on comfort, stability and structure. These things often take the form of our family, our money and those things we’ve gathered around us.
Of course, we all want to enjoy life and be surrounded by the things that make us happy. We have to be careful not to get stuck in our ways and live to just maintain stability. This is the danger of Taurus energy. Most of us crave stability and structure more than growth. A healthy balance between change/transformation and stability must be achieved in life.
Underneath it all, our desire to keep accumulating people, things and experiences must also be replaced by contentment. Once this happens we enter the present moment, which is the only true source of peace and consistency in life.
You can see the power of Taurus by observing cows. They are very much creatures of habit. They like things to be a certain way each day, and when the routine is disrupted they can become quite aggressive and angry. But once they have their momentary needs met, they are the most contented and peaceful creatures you could ever see. Sitting nearby watching a cow chewing its cud is a deeply relaxing experience. If you meditate near that large, contented animal, you will certainly feel contentment yourself.

Now is a great time to harmonize the intensity of Sun/Mercury in Scorpio toward deeper peace and stillness. Scorpio is ruled by Mars reflecting upon himself. The nature of Mars is to bring strength and for Scorpio, Mars brings strength to the emotions. Scorpio is a water sign which is related to the emotions and it’s also a fixed sign which wants to stabilize. Somehow Mars tries to stabilize the watery emotions through Scorpio.

Venus also rules the sixth house from Taurus which shows they can be very hard-working, loyal, dependable people willing to take on difficult tasks as long as there’s a sense of purpose and potential to create beauty and harmony in process.
But Venus ruling the sixth house also shows where Taurus can be their own worst enemy by having a lot of sensual weakness. Taurus must overcome their desire to experience pleasure just for themselves, they must learn to share. It is a sign that can be greedy and not necessarily able to see beyond their own needs and desires and the things that they’ve made a commitment to emotionally. It’s very much a sign of comfort and peace and family and it can be quite possessive as a fixed Earth sign, it can be one of the most possessive signs in the whole zodiac.
This is also the sign where the moon is exalted so it shows the fixed Earth quality, it’s very good for the moon which is our emotional state. The nature of Taurus to rule the mouth and face and sensual organs is very profound because Taurus shows where we want to take in enjoyment and experience pleasure, it also shows a quality of respect and values that we want to extend to others.
A Taurus person will go into situations and want to create stability and structure and order but they must be careful not to cling too much to form and the things they’ve made an emotional commitment to. Many times a Taurus person is very resistant to change and they can cling to situations that they would better be let go of. They can often place more importance on stability more than growth and they must learn to let go of things once their time is done.
