We are headed into the perfection of the Full Moon in Taurus. It happens at 8:05 AM Eastern Time on Tuesday. This is a Venus-ruled lunation, and so it is Aphrodite-Venus who can be honored at this time.
Venus is currently transiting the sign of Virgo, meeting Mars in an exact conjunction next week. However, the energies of these mythical lovers meeting is heightened by this Full Moon. Jupiter in the mix tells us that this is a time of consciousness expansion, emotional integration, and meaning in the arena of Sex and Love. It's a time to open to experience. We are invited to be authentic.
Wounded Healer Chiron is also involved in this picture via opposition. Oppositions are challenging aspects, and they bring out the dual nature of this plane of reality. This can mean that as we become more conscious of Love, we also simultaneously flush to the surface that which is contrary to it. As we wish to be loved, we might notice and focus on that which we think is ugly or unloveable about ourselves. This is not a failure of Love, but rather a beautiful opportunity to give Love to that which is in need of it. If we can't quite muster super-appreciation for those aspects of ourselves that we have trouble loving (most of us can't right away), we can still acknowledge that "this is a part of me that needs to be loved". Even that simple act of acknowledgment sends medicine.
Here's another cool thing about the astrology for the next couple of days: Mercury makes a brilliant opposition aspect to Uranus. While that might encourage those of us who shy away from matters of the Heart in favor of the intellect to hide up up in the head until all of this Love shit has blown over, I'm going to say this: At this time, if you are able to get centered in the heart, THAT is when the most inspired ideas and inventions are going to emerge. (Full moon in) Taurus rules the throat, which holds the chakra that connects the Heart and Mind, and is the truth-articulation center. It's the union of the Masculine and Feminine that creates the world.
