Whatever deserves to exist, deserves to be known.

Francis Bacon

In a society that pays more attention to things and machines then to the natural world, we might need to define what it means to 'exist'. Exist: to continue to be, to stand forth, to arise, to BE. Perhaps a better way to define it is to say whatever is alive deserves to be known. Understanding technology is all well and good, but it is the Earth and Life that deserve our attention now.

When the Sun is in Taurus, our attention turns to what is alive in the world. Taurus is a fixed earth sign, meaning it concentrates Aries fire to bring it into form. At the Aries New Moon on April 18th, we planted a new seed story about our lives, a new story about our individual purpose and our contribution to healing the world and creating a better future.

The seed is still a mystery, the new story just beginning, but once the seed is planted, our work becomes the Taurus experience of knowing our own being--our senses, our thoughts, our feelings and our intuitions. Begin at the beginning. Know Thyself! And then look around this beautiful Earth and feel your connection to it. Through that connection, learn to listen and see the world with new eyes.

That's a good Taurus lesson. First to discover and know our self-worth and our values, then to look around and see what life has to offer. The Taurus part of each of us loves the beauty and goodness of the Earth, wants peace and security, and specializes in gardens of delight that feed the senses and sooth our reptilian brain. Taurus says this is what life is really all about--joy and beauty, love and delight, growth and union.

The Wheel of the Year turns during this Scorpio Full Moon on May 3-4, when we celebrate the festival of Beltane. This power-gate celebrates the beauty of Mother Earth and her fertility, her call to life and love and the creative imagination. At this time in the yearly cycle, the light is growing, nature is coming alive again and we are coming out of our winter's gestation. It's time to blossom, open up to our desires and see what dreams may come!

This is a special Full Moon for me, because it occurs on my birthday. The Taurus/Scorpio Full Moon is also when the Buddhist Wesak Festival is celebrated. This is one of the most important festivals in the Buddhist calendar, commemorating three significant events in Gautama Buddha's life--his birthday, his enlightenment and his passing away.

This week's Full Moon occurs within 1* of the power gates of Taurus and Scorpio, the point in these signs where there can be a power breakthrough. Since this powerful time usually brings great spiritual blessings into the world, this year look for a strong flow of spiritual energies wanting to be integrated into consciousness. This spiritual insight can energize our aspirations to serve the Good, the Beautiful and the True (all Taurus values). Our intuition will be stimulated by these spiritual blessings, so dedicate some time to meditation and see what your inner wisdom wants you to know. The world is on the cusp of great changes and we are the ones who can provide a channel for the spiritual forces to pour through the body of humanity.

This is a powerful Full Moon! But of course, Scorpio can handle it. Scorpio, like Taurus, is called a fixed sign, meaning they concentrate energy--physical in Taurus' case and emotional in Scorpio's. The energies of Taurus and Scorpio promote growth, both within and without. Taurus wants to use her talents to build something strong and secure in the world. Scorpio wants to grow strong emotionally while learning to be vulnerable in relationships.

The Scorpio Full Moon makes us aware of our true feelings about our self-worth, our values, our resources and what we really want to create and achieve. Scorpio demands we transform those aspects of ourselves that sabotage those desires. Complacency or laziness--Taurus can do both. Scorpio can be caught up in distrust or resentment.

Jupiter in Leo forms a tight T-square with this Full Moon, meaning that it's at a 90* angle to both the Sun and Moon. Jupiter acts like the string on a bow being pulled back, creating tension but also power. With this dynamic aspect, Jupiter challenges us to look at this Full Moon from different creative perspectives. Jupiter challenges both Taurus and Scorpio to be curious! To look into things, instead of having expectations of what we think they are. These things deserve to be known.

The tension of the opposition between the Sun and Moon (at Full Moon) is stretched even tighter by Jupiter's involvement. What do we really value and are we living it? Are we acknowledging our needs and desires or repressing them? How can we creatively change our lives to reflect who we really are?
