After an intense astrological period (goodbye, retrograde season!), the Taurus full moon arrives and reminds us to slow down and take care of ourselves! Full moons naturally bring up a lot of emotions for us to process and release. It’s the lunar phase of cleansing and making space. We are preparing to receive what we manifested from the previous new moon! With Taurus being an earth sign, we can collectively feel called to ground and connect back to nature more during this phase. With the constant demands to always be on the go and to produce, Taurus understands that life needs a balance of self care and action. With the Full Moon occurring on November 19th, we can see how we haven’t been showing up for ourselves and our needs as well as we should be!
Taurus is a fixed earth sign, which makes it determined and grounded with everything it does! Represented by the Bull, Taurus is infamously known for its stubborn nature. But this sign uses its fierceness to keep their eyes on the prize, no matter what the cost. This full moon wants you to get focused on what you want to achieve in the long term and to be fully motivated in going after it. Be willing to work hard for what it is that you desire! Remember that every small step you take towards your goals adds up in the long run.
Taurus is a sensual sign that enjoys the good things in life. Ruled by the love and beauty planet, Venus, Taurus knows that all hard work and no play doesn’t make life worth living. We are being asked to slow down and pamper ourselves for all that we’ve achieved along the journey. Tap into your senses by utilizing beautiful scents in your home, listening to your favorite music, wearing luxurious fabrics, eating delicious foods, and making yourself look as good as you feel! Tauruans understand the power of the vibe check! They always want to set an atmosphere wherever they are. Treat yourself for once, you deserve it for all the hard work you’ve been doing!
Here are some ways to honor yourself during this Taurus Full Moon:
- If you see the path in front of you, stick to it! Your vision is clear for a reason. Be willing to take other people’s advice into consideration, but don’t lose sight of the overall goal. Only you know exactly what you are looking for in the long run. Remember to give gratitude back to yourself for every small step accomplished along the way.
- Remember that rest is just as important as productivity! Taurus loves to lounge and relax just as much as creating. Give yourself intentional time to rest and recharge! You cannot constantly be operating from an empty cup. Take time for yourself when you’re beginning to feel drained! Make your home feel like a sanctuary so you can enjoy your cozy nights in.
- Indulge in yourself with this Taurus full moon energy! Upgrade some of your beauty rituals to give yourself a pampering experience. Reward yourself for all your hard work with a new item of clothing or a delicious meal out. Taurus fully understands that this life is supposed to be enjoyed to the fullest.
