Let's look at the troublesome aspects first before getting into the manifestation ones. Remember that a Taurus Full Moon is a manifestation moon and most likely you'll manifest the intentions you set with the Taurus New Moon last spring. Taurus focuses on nature, gardens, farming, pottery, cows, large animals, some luxuries, but those that have to do with structure and the earth. Since Taurus is one of the co-rulers of Venus, we could also beautify our bodies, homes, or communities.
It's starting to feel like a cliche, but once again, the full moon comes with a Cardinal T-Cross, but this time the players include Mercury at 18 degrees Libra, Uranus at 17 degrees Aries and Pluto at 13 degrees Capricorn. I'm not feeling overly concerned about this T-Cross because Pluto is 5 degrees away from Uranus in Aries and the triple conjunction of Venus/Mars/Jupiter in Virgo supports Pluto in the form of an Earth Trine. However, this t-cross is still gazing at partnerships and wanting us to get the message that if we're stuck in unworkable relationship, it's time to move on, like it, or not. Wishful thinking isn't going to solve any problems, especially in the case where someone feels oppressed or misunderstood by their partner. Uranus says, muster your courage, break the ties, and move on. Unless of course you're happy in your partnership.
Saturn in Sagittarius squares Neptune with the square tightening another notch. Saturn brings us a reality check and since we're looking at creating balance in our lives, Saturn can help with this by asking us to find the truth in our situations. We all have dreams, but for most of us this involves a step-by-step process and using discernment in manifesting those dreams. Even when we use Law of Attraction tools, we're still following steps. We still have an emotional scale that we climb to bring us closer to our desires. And for me, the most challenging part is surrendering my desires to a higher power and then aligning with them through doing something that feels like fun. Saturn asks us to work hard to reach our goals, whereas Neptune counters that with faith, surrender, and trusting in alignment with a higher power.
Venus, Mars, and Jupiter have joined and travel through October as a Triple Conjunction in Virgo. During the Libra New Moon, the planets opposed Neptune and during the full moon, they now oppose Chiron. My guess is that the Triple Conjunction refers to love, desire, romance and attachment to a partner. If we're single we could meet someone new at this time that really rocks our boat. However, with Chiron in opposition, we have work to do around childhood wounds. We must accept what we can't change and learn to love our shadows. We are who we are, and wishful thinking isn't going to change us. We can't change the events from our childhood that harmed us, but we can accept that those events brought us to where we are today. And we're not alone because everyone on the planet suffered childhood trauma of one kind or another. The key is to revisit this trauma so we can accept what we can't change and then extract wisdom from the situation to help others.
The Scorpio Sun trines Neptune in Pisces (and eventually the Cancer Moon forming a Grand Water Trine), which allows us to power our dreams. In fact, it's a good time to record our nightly dreams and to pay attention to little daydreams that pass through our minds throughout the day. Pay attention to synchronicity as well as, shadows and projections since Scorpio rules that side of us. But for the most part, this is a supportive transit that allows us to explore what lurks in our minds (both dreams and nightmares).
I think we would all love it if a fairy godmother dropped out of the sky with a magic wand to grant us our three wishes. However, we enjoy those manifestations a lot more if we come from a healed and authentic place. I don't know if any of you have ever eaten cake that was taken out of the oven too soon. It taste horrible. I'm just as impatient as the next person. I want my manna now and I don't want to go through another round of healing. However, having gone through much healing recently, I'm enjoying basking in the light for a while. This is what I wish for all of you, that you clear the way so that you can enjoy your manifestation without worries, doubts, or feelings of undeserving. Grab the brass ring.
