Rule My World ~ Full Moon in Taurus -November 3rd, 2017

On November 3rd, 2017 there will be a Full Moon in the fixed earth sign of Taurus. This celestial event will bring some desirable illumination into the darkness of Scorpio season, reinvigorating your life with a deep reverence for the principle of pleasure.

The Moon’s affinity for water, its most natural element, is transformed into pure ardor when the solid earth and definite form of Taurus is encountered. The Moon is exalted in Taurus, taking her most ecstatic pleasures and reaching her most climactic magical powers at this Full Moon in the middle of autumn.

You don’t have to be rich to be my girl

During Scorpio season, as the light of rational certainty dims into a subconscious glint, the influence of lunar awareness brings everything out of the abstract and back into attunement with the wisdom of the body. 

You don’t have to be cool to rule my world

On this Full Moon night, your receptivity to sensual pleasures will be greatly enhanced, strengthening your spirit and nourishing your soul. By grounding consciousness back into your body, this Full Moon will illuminate your senses, bringing new sparkle into your eyes, new softness into your hands, and a new melting into your mouth. Thus, your consciousness will expand as the wonder of infinity is revealed through the simplest enjoyments.

The visionary quality of this Full Moon will also be greatly enhanced by a supportive sextile with Neptune. Through like a rising mist, your reveries will contain higher emotional experiences, distilling all the joy and sorrow you feel for others into deep compassion. Thus, the night of this Full Moon in Taurus will blur many dividing lines, inviting a refreshing intimacy between spirits and souls. So long as you’re at the right kind of party, this will feel so ennobling!

You don’t have to be beautiful to turn me on

I just need your body, baby, from dusk ’til dawn

Under these conditions, your cup will truly runneth over with the pleasure of other people’s company. The candles will seem to burn slowly, illuminating many long hours of intimate conversations. Feeling holy and enchanted, you may find yourself moved to make flourishing gestures of love and devotion. Relish the depth and sincerity of your feeling, for these are the times when you are reminded of what it is that really rules your world.

Concurrent to the Full Moon, Venus in her sign of rulership in Libra, will oppose Uranus, stirring up some romantic excitement as well as the potential for careless transgressions. As the climate rapidly shifts, so too must your closest relationships. Some people may feel the sudden discord, abruptly rejecting these passing interests and mild affinities. And those who are cultivating genuine affection and intimacy may be stimulated to reach new levels of harmonious discourse and intercourse.

Whatever happens in your little drama, this is a moment to honor that which rules your world.

You don’t need experience to turn me out

You just leave it all up to me,

I’m gonna show you what it’s all about

As the Sun in Scorpio opposes the Moon in Taurus, the objective reflection shared between these aspects of consciousness will dredge up some very deep questions, ones that can not be answered through intellectual posturing. In search of answers that lead towards truth, many of your acquired tastes will be utterly lost, turning back into a keen taste for the things you’re really after in this life.

Ain’t no particular sign I’m more compatible with

Know that is not actually the money or the lover or the job or the house that drives you. What you’re after is the experience of union between mind, body, and spirit, the purest form of contentment and bliss. You know this perfect unity in moments when the heaviness lifts, and your awareness becomes like a ripple in a vast stream of images. All thoughts dissolve like foam upon a great wave, rising from the dusk to meet the golden dawn.

I just want your extra time and your kiss

At the Full Moon in Taurus, you will be put in touch with many potential moments for such contentment. Your inner eye will dilate upon a vision: the earth breathing deeply at the setting Sun, lingering upon the caramel sweetness of dusk. And in the darkness, the memory of that sweetness finds new life in the curling tendrils of midnight reveries.

Every Full Moon marks an energetic climax, where many things you have been cultivating will ripen into fruition. And since Taurus is a Venus ruled sign, spend this night acknowledging all the love and pleasure that get to enjoy.

You can’t be too flirty, mama, I know how to undress me

The children of Venus know that love is born from pleasure. And it is only through the experience of pleasure that spirit becomes unified with matter. As a testament to her divinity, there are some people born with such a heightened capacity for ecstasy that their radiance brings light and inspiration to an entire generation.

I want to be your fantasy, maybe you could be mine

You just leave it all up to me, we could have a good time

In the history of popular music, there is nobody quite as majestic as Prince. The term genius barely begins to describe his tremendous gift for music, found in writing, singing, playing, producing, and dancing.

By virtue of his consistent presence as a chart-topping popular artist throughout the 80’s and 90’s, Prince colored the collective psyche with his ecstatic sexuality, one that was turned on by life itself. As a true angel of Venus, Prince’s music is medicine, curing the diseases of self-loathing and nihilism. Prince songs change your consciousness, calling you back to a place where curvaceous beauty and voluptuous pleasures are exalted. 

Women, not girls, rule my world,

I said they rule my world

Beyond being a genius, any serious elegy of Prince would have to describe him as an heroic figure. His band was called the Revolution for a reason, because every time he released a new song, the narrow vision of corporate interests became totally obliterated by his erotic splendor!

You don’t have to watch Dynasty to have an attitude

You just leave it all up to me, my love will be your food

With more grace than most mortals can possess, Prince demonstrated that the darkness of life should be filled with light, and that tragedy must be met with love and beauty and lust and art.

In the same elegy that describes Prince’s genius and heroism, it might also be said that he could lead a blind man to see. To offer solid proof for this illustrious claim, when asked about the impact of Prince’s music, Stevie Wonder once said:  

“Prince’s music was so picturesque that even I could see it…I could feel that “Purple Rain” too. Prince’s songs were that vivid, the images were that strong.”

For a final summation of the raw magical power that this Full Moon in Taurus contains, meditate upon the music video for Kiss, for it can be read as a symbolic interpretation of this night’s celestial power. The video depicts a delicious dance between a woman shrouded in black (Scorpio Sun) and a half-naked maestro of Venusian splendor (Moon in Taurus).

You don’t have to be rich to be my girl

You don’t have to be cool to rule my world

Like the woman in the video, the desire of the Sun in Scorpio remains partially shrouded, restrained by darkness. In response, the sensual Full Moon in Taurus brings a moment of catharsis, tempting death back into life through an enchantment of the senses.

So at this Full Moon in Taurus, take a tip from Prince and find out what it is that truly rules your world. Cast off the artificial gestures, programmed reactions, and social pretensions that keep you enslaved to dull flavors and low vibes.

You now have an illuminated moment to honor the principle of pleasure, rocking gently into a state of satiated contentment.
