Taurus Full Moon - Partial Lunar Eclipse
October 28, 2023
This is the final eclipse in Taurus. The North Node will shift into the sign of Aries. On April 8, 2024 we will have a total solar eclipse at 19° Aries.
A Full Moon always brings illumination and realization especially in the area of your chart where the Full Moon is occurring, as well as the opposite sign where the Sun is transiting.
The polarity of opposites brought into focus initiate release and healing. A full Moon represents a culmination point.
What’s it all about?
Taurus is ruled by Venus, the planet of human love and pleasure. The restaurant, travel and leisure industries can get a welcomed boost of energy at this time, or some restaurant and leisure industries could be closing their door. There may be significant endings that must come before new beginnings can take place.
The basic issue now is to find your own self-respect. Self-respect ensures that you do not unwittingly seek security and stability in material things. When you know and accept yourself for who you are, it becomes much easier to find and enjoy peace and tranquility in the outside world.
The ways this energy can play out are varied, but a mundane example might be a time when you feel to get out in nature more and feel supported to do so.
When Venus’ love energy is immature, she can be jealous and possessive. Or, feel threatened that what she loves and holds dear is being supplanted, or replaced somehow with something that is new and foreign to her.
Taurus can be a rather conservative and stubborn sign and resist change. Taurus zodiac symbol is the bull, the sign of Wall Street, so material comforts and possessions (things) are all important to Taurus and Venus.
Appreciation of the individual rights and freedoms are set to grow and evolve in society at large.

In Taurus your feeling of self-worth comes from material things and the seeking of material things. The Taurus Eclipse brings issues related to your genuine sense of self-worth not predicated on material values, but rather love for spiritual values like love of home, family, country and the world at large.
