  This week's Taurus Full Moon confronts us with the awareness of the cycles of life.   The sign of Taurus opens us to the beauty of Spring and initiates the beginning of the summer season in the northern hemisphere - the Celtic festival of Beltane on May 1st is the beginning of summer.   The sign of Scorpio initiates the beginning of our winter season, with Samhain or Halloween marking the part of the cycle that honors death and winter.

  With this full Moon so close to All Hallows Eve, the veils between the worlds will be very thin.   Remember your ancestors and those beloveds who have passed beyond the veils this year.   Remember, honor, and recognize what values and talents they lived by.   Somewhere within you, you have those same traits.   What have you done with them?   Will you honor the departed by tending those inherited values and talents to share with the world?

  Taurus, a fixed earth sign, and Scorpio, a fixed water sign, are probably the two most stubborn signs of the zodiac.   It's so easy to get stuck in our routines (Taurus) as well as in our feelings (Scorpio).   But each year, we get a chance to change all that.   With the Taurus Full Moon we become aware of what no longer serves life and we get a chance to transform old stuck energy and feelings and release them.   Leaving us open to new growth and energy once we go through the "letting go' of the death cycle.

  Taurus' journey is one of personal values.   Souls incarnate in Taurus to learn what is worth building into life, which can only be discovered when we understand our core values, our self-worth and our attitude toward money, security and the sensual pleasures of life.

Scorpio's journey is to discover where we share values with others.   In past lives, the Scorpio part of us has dealt with dark and hurtful experiences and comes into this lifetime with those stuck feelings unconsciously controlling how we relate to others.   Will we be betrayed again?   Hurt, rejected, terrorized?   Just as Taurus arrives with the Spring, bringing us hope of life, Scorpio looks at what he has experienced in that life and confronts us with our fears about relating to others.   This full Moon can help us understand that all these emotional wounds are really learning experiences that, once named and understood, can be released so we can move on to deeper intimacy.  

Taurus's self-worth gives us personal power.   Scorpio's ability to die to the old so the new can be born also gives us power -- the power to see deeply into life and death so we can rise above fear and embrace our soul's immortality. And we can do it in concert with others.   We are not as alone as we sometimes feel in our dying patriarchal culture.   We just have to choose a fuller, deeper, more connected life.

So this full Moon asks us to consider what we really value and look at what no longer serves the interests of Life.   We need to do this personally, but we also need to do it as a nation and as a world.   The patriarchy has served its purpose, both within and without.   Now it is time for it to let go of its power over us and over the world and allow the new birth that is so necessary for the good of all life here on our mother, the Earth.

One of Taurus' talents is to be a good steward of the Earth.   We need that kind of stewardship now.   Taurus likes things simple.   Simple and sensuous.   What can you do to simplify your life?   But also, how can you be a good steward by simplifying your life?   Let your values help you change your life's routines. Scorpio's purpose includes 'cleaning up its inner waters'. Do you value the sacred and life-giving waters?   If so, change your wasteful habits and use less water, which we squander. Pay attention to how you interact with the Earth.   Dance lightly and with a caring eye.   Heal what needs healing, protect what is weak and love the beauty we have been gifted with.    

As we heal our inner Scorpio wounds, perhaps we can work together to heal the Earth's wounds.  

Taurus Full Moon

  The Taurus Full Moon takes place on Monday, October 29th at 12:50pm PDT/ 3:50pm EDT/ 7:50pm GMT.


  The Sabian symbol for the Sun at 7* Scorpio is: Deep-sea divers.   This symbol urges us to focus our intentions (the Sun) on exploring the deeper causes of our fears, our insecurities, our inability to relate.   Perhaps past-life experiences still traumatize us.   Or some cruel torment from our childhood.   Part of it definitely stems from the crisis we face at the moment.   To dive deeply into the collective unconscious helps us to understand the hidden energies of life that unconsciously move us toward greater growth or keep us stuck in a lingering death.

Cathy Pagano is the author of a new book, "Wisdom's Daughters: How Women Can Change the World". Cathy trained at the C. G. Jung Institut-Zurich in dream interpretation, then got her M.A. in Counseling Psychology in Feminine Spirituality, and along the way became a certified Life Coach. As an astrologer and storyteller, she weaves the Cosmic Stories written in the stars and from The Bard's Grove, comments on emerging archetypal themes in movies. Cathy works with the tools of the imagination - dreams, alchemy, myths, astrology, symbolic language, storytelling, ritual - to awaken the Soul's wisdom.

I believe that Americans are called to a higher consciousness at this point in our history. We are called on to live up to our ideals and create the country our forefathers imagined. Inner consciousness needs to be acted upon for social justice.

Cathy believes that our writers and artists must take up our responsibility to create art that inspires, teaches and heals our humanity.

Cathy writes about political, psychological/spiritual, and cultural issues.
