24th/25th October we have a full moon in Taurus at 1 degree and 13 minutes.
Taurus rules anything to do with aesthetics and beauty, the arts, entertainment etc. The energy reveals your inner and outer resources, your talents, gifts and abilities. It rules your self-worth, self-respect and self-appreciation. It highlights your attitude towards money, security and enjoyment. It teaches us that to experience true happiness we must live from a place of our true values. This Moon is going to shine a light on what it is you truly love and value.
This Moon will be very powerful because 7 out of 10 planets will be in fixed signs. Thus, we will be looking at areas in our life that not only Taurus rules, but, noticing/becoming aware of ‘fixed patterns, behaviours and tendencies that we may have. Where have you become stagnant? What is routine? Where are your beliefs fixed and inflexible? Can you create a little space in any of these areas? This energy will help you notice where in your life you are restricting or limiting yourself through outdated beliefs and habitual actions and thus, be given the opportunity to really look, review and consciously make way for change. It really is a time to try and break free. Try something new, go on an adventure, step outside of the box that you have created for yourself and expand your world through the expansion of your own consciousness.
We still have Venus Retrograde, which is the ruler of Taurus. It is still in Scorpio and will retrograde back into Libra at the end of the month. Scorpio rules shared resources, other people’s values, trust, sex, death, rebirth. It is about diving deep into who you really are, embracing your own shadow and owning the rebirth needed for change. For those who dismiss the shadow side, this then gets projected out onto other people. So, remember to really dive deep within yourself. Look at your life from a higher perspective. Don’t get so caught up in other people’s vibration and begin to see that it is the relationship that you have with yourself that is most important. This energy can create exciting encounters but there is also the energy of jealousy. So, when you look at what someone else has, are you willing to do the vibrational work to have it for yourself? The LOA rules the universe, if you are in alignment with what you want, it cannot be denied. This is law.
Once this energy goes back to Libra this will be around your personal relationships. Perhaps certain relationships will ‘awaken’ at this time, in a sense, getting out of the proverbial ‘rut’. This can mean a ‘recalibration’ of an existing relationship or, on the flip side a ‘release’ of a relationship that is no longer serving you. Because the north node is in Leo, this will be the very opportunity to free yourself. In a nutshell its time to look at rigid patterns and thinking and make adjustments where necessary.
Major financial purchases should be avoided at this time as Venus is retrograde. The true value of any desire is harder to judge now, you could blindly over value people or products at this time. Go below the surface of things, whether in people or objects because it may not be what they seem. You could be driven by emotional idealism rather than practical necessity, so do hold off on making any rash purchases or delving quickly into a new relationship at this time.
We also have a lot of planets in water and earth signs, so it will be important to find ways to self- soothe, look for ways to create calm within yourself and consciously let go of control, in some area of your life. Enjoy the pleasures of life in a way that aligns your soul. Meditation, connecting to nature, salt baths, reiki treatments etc, will all prove fruitful at this time.
Moon and Uranus are together, and this can make you feel like you want a lot of freedom. So, anything that is very demanding and struggling you may want to break out of it by the time of this Full Moon. You may get feelings of impatience through ‘routines’ and find that you want to try a different approach. It’s a time to really break out of your fixed ideas and patterns and this energy will assist you the whole way. For instance, as Taurus rules the senses, you may want to try a new food, or because it rules the arts you may want to take up a new hobby such as dancing or painting. Really, this is about finding something that will ‘stimulate’ the enjoyment back into your life and have the courage to do something about it. Uranus is bringing the wild card to this full moon, shaking up the fixed signs and creating new, often surprising, paths. This promises to be a most unusual full moon. There could be choices made to protect personal comforts and a need to release something that provided security. There could be a sudden announcement of abrupt change in direction. The moon is exalted in Taurus because they both seek comfort and security yet with Uranus we may not feel comfortable or secure. Uranus moon aspects can create turmoil, sudden incidents involving women, emotional upsets, changes in your mood, changes in your home or personal life. Uranus energy is not so much about ‘being bad’ as they are sudden and surprising, it liberates you by injecting light into you.
There is a grand square between, the Sun in Scorpio, the moon in Taurus, the north node in Leo and the south node of Aquarius. You may be feeling overwhelmed, almost like you are being pulled in different directions. Taurus rules the values of the individual, Leo rules the heart of the individual. If in doubt which direction to take, always let the heart lead.
The good news is that Saturn is in harmony with both the Sun and Moon, so working with the ‘tried and tested’, within the structures that already surround you, can be very beneficial at this time. It is important to be patient also, if your patient, success will be yours. More good news, Venus sextiles Saturn at the time of the Full Moon, this can help ground the energy that Uranus may stir up and Saturn Venus, in harmony like this, can help you make sense of any stir ups to your life. It is also an excellent energy for business relationships, it can help in romantic / personal relationships, it can help us be practical and work well with others. Saturn will help you build whatever is new for you at this time. If you get on a new path, your efforts will take off.
This Moon is shining a light on what you love and value, helping you see that when you align your goals with your core values, this helps promote success. Your power is in the choices you make today, and your future is determined by these choices. What you love, and value is unique to you, there is only one you, and this is the ultimate treasure. Take time over this Full Moon to really honour what it is that your heart truly desires. Ask yourself, what do I want? What do I love and value. This energy can really help you manifest your desires, so be conscious of what it is you are asking for. It’s a wild and crazy full moon and its reminding you to take care you. Your personal needs, your desires, your health, your uniqueness, your wisdom and your values. If something does not work for you, go back to where it did. What worked for you in the past? Don’t forget if it’s terrifying and exciting, you should definitely do it !!
Full Moon Ritual
At each Full Moon we are given the opportunity to harness the energy of the moon, to release that which no longer serves us, what we no longer need in life or an aspect of yourself that you have outgrown. You can read my ritual here.
Reiki Full Moon Healing Circle
As with every Full Moon, I will be conducting a Reiki Healing Circle. By doing so, we clear our energy, release, renew and rebirth in a much more focused, conscious way. This Reiki session will take place on 24th October and we will harness the energy of this aware, pleasurable, aligned Full Moon, that we may release, renew and restart. The session will take place at 9.30-10.30pm BST (London Time) and it is at an energetic exchange of £10 pp. This will include:
- 1 hour of Full Moon Reiki Healing
- A feedback e-mail from the session.
- Added to the Reiki Candle for the duration of 24 hours (cost normally £5). *Please note when paying for your full moon session be sure to include your ‘wish/intention’ for the Reiki Candle Service.
This is a distant healing session, so you do not need to be physically with me to receive the energy, indeed, you don’t even need to stop your ‘normal’ day to day activities for the Reiki to be sent. However, it is always recommended, where possible to mediate, during the session as this will prove fruitful to your acceptance of the Reiki. I will however programme the Reiki to be felt at whatever time you become still and wish to receive. The most important aspect is that you consciously accept the healing energy and know that it is always to your own highest good. Post the session, I will send e-mail feedback to all those who attended.
Natural healing techniques can be used to compliment another health care practice; however, they are not a substitute for a proper medical diagnosis and treatment from a licensed healthcare professional. Healers are usually not medically trained and should therefore never give a clinical diagnosis or interfere with treatment. I suggest that you always see your Doctor, or healthcare specialist if you have any concerns about your physical or mental health.
This Reiki Healing is conducted and prepared with light and love to assist you on your spiritual journey. How you experience the healing will be as unique as you are. Janet Gracey Conscious healing holds no responsibility for the perceived outcome of your Reiki Healing session.
