What Do You Need More Of?
This Taurus Full Moon is a powerful one for abundance and stability. It’s also good for letting go of what is no longer wanted or is blocking you from that life filled with love and joy. This Full Moon, rooted deeply in earth-energy, is about being comfortable, cozy and warm. It is very much like feeling warm and secure in a mid-winter night.
It’s a sunny, cold and crisp day in the Northwest. A rare gem of a day for PNW people that are more accustomed to rain and darkness. I’m sitting next to a fireplace, roaring with wood as I drink some tea and write. I’m struck by the feelings of love, abundance and community that this Full Moon is bringing up. I’m an intuitive product maker which means I make products when Spirit calls me too. Lately I have been showering friends, clients and myself with my new ‘Lucky in Love’ candle and bath salts. I made these candles for a party that I recently held and each guest took home a little bit of luck and love from the party. It felt like the most perfect blend to share with my friends as they came out to see me. I have been so sick this year that I have not seen some of them in ages. I gave myself a combined birthday party (belated) and celebration of my return to a healthy body and life.
It was one of the greatest nights I have had in a very long time, and it was also one of the scariest. I had no idea if my body would hold up to the end of the party, or if anyone would even show up. I don’t normally celebrate myself so leading up to the event, I felt like maybe I was putting myself in the spotlight or being selfish in even wanting to have a party. I almost canceled it at the last minute because my fear and anxiety were so intense.
And yet, when it happened, it was simply one of the most beautiful and loving nights in my life. I was reminded that there are people that truly love me through all my ups and the downs. I felt honored that so many people came out to see me and wanted to celebrate the fact I am finally healing. And I was reminded that when you help others to find and be the best versions of themselves, you are helping to pay forward good, abundant, energy. I left the party feeling surrounded by love and community.
What Do You Need More of Ritual
Let’s take a few moments to ground ourselves to the earth. Taurus is earth energy; stable, secure and, at times, stubborn. This energy is why we can feel lonely or think we have no friends when really we are just being stubborn in our thinking. The truth is we do have people that love us in this world. Taurus is also one of my favorite signs. My first love was a Taurus and I will always cherish him. Some of my best friends have been Taurus’s. They are the ones I can call at 2am when I am having a panic attack about my health and my future. They are my pillars. They take care of themselves and they make sure they and their loved ones are secure. Let’s use this energy to take care of ourselves at the same time we call in abundance. For more love and security to come into our lives, we need to let go of what is blocking us. Take out a sheet of paper and draw a line down the middle. On the left side write down what you want to call in during this Full Moon. Where do you want more light and love? Do you want a larger community of friends and loved ones? Do you want to focus on your career or would you love extra time to do your creative arts? Do you need to find a better living situation that will cradle you in love more than your current situation? Taurus’s love their homes. Do you want to call in more money so you can take a vacation to a beautiful spa and let your body feel loved for a week? Write down everything you want to call in on this paper. On the right side of the line, write down everything you are ready to give up or let go of. What are the stubborn thoughts that are blocking you from living this life? Do you feel invisible and alone? Do you feel like no matter how hard you work, it’s never enough? Do you feel like you messed up at a younger age and are too scared now to say you are sorry to those you hurt? Let’s write all these scenes from our journey that we want to let go of so we have room to call in something better. If you can, maybe write down what you will do to let go of these thoughts. Can you throw yourself a party so you feel seen? Can you look for a job that might be a better fit for your skills? Can you reach out to that person you hurt and say you are sorry and let them know that you have changed?
Whatever it is we need to let go of, let’s do it so we can call more love and abundance into our lives. Once you are done with your list, take the side where you listed things you want to create and bury it in the ground. It can be in your yard, at the park or in a plant pot at home. We want these intentions to grow. For the side listing those things we want to let go of; burn it. We must take positive action steps to release this energy out into the Universe. Free yourself of these stubborn, old ways, of thinking. We are entering a new season of living and we must let go of this old way of living.
I will be calling in more love, community and strength as I face my next health hurdles. I am healing everyday but I have more work to do. I need to continue forward with the new way of living that my body is requiring. I also will be eating a lot more pomegranates as we move into the winter months and our collective feminine energy. Taurus likes to move slow and winter time is a perfect time to slow down, take care of yourself and start to prepare for the New Year. While you are working on this Ritual, also be aware we are starting to prepare our energy for the New Year. What changes are you ready to call in?
