As you may know, Full Moons are the energetic high point of the moon's monthly journey through the zodiac, the Moon is in opposition with the Sun (currently in Scorpio.) These are days charged with energy, this can feel intense, or they may come in to stir up emotions.This moon phase have a profound effect on the way we feel, think, act, and relate to each other.
Full Moon times are also very powerful to tap into the energy of healing, transformation, and a powerful time to be of service, to our immediate circle, our community, and the world and Mother Earth through our prayers, intentions, and blessings.
This Full Moon is rising on the grounded sign of Taurus on October 31st at 7:49am, PT. This is a Blue Full moon (when there's is two Full Moons in a month) a rare and special cosmic treat,"as this Full Moon also takes place in Halloween, and the Day of All Dead."
Taurus full moon helps us on being grounded, and stable. It bring energies of practicality, beauty, sensuality, and invites us to slow down and explore our senses.
Also, on this day we are celebrating: Samhain, an ancient Celtic spiritual tradition marking the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter or the "darker half" of the year. Traditionally, it is celebrated from 31 October to 1 November, as the Celtic day began and ended at sunset.
Samhain, when the Summer (Imbolc) goes to its rest, It is believed that on this day the veil in between the inner and outer world is thinned, meaning that the barriers between the physical world and spirit world dissolve, allowing for spirits to move through. "When the sky is dark and spirits are roaming the earth, the logical solution would be lighting some bonfires to keep the dark at bay" - Samhain is believed to be the non-Christian origin of Halloween (Hallow Even) and the Day of All Dead, as well as the Day of all Saints (Nov 1st.)
As we are celebrating this already powerful day with a powerful Blue Full Moon, during a time that marks a powerful turning point in the wheel of the year, and we head to the end of this yearly cycle and into Winter, we look to connecting with our ancestors, to meditate and pray. To bring in the light, where there is darkness. To bring balance between Masculine and Feminine. Especially on this Moon, balance is all around, what’s hidden beneath the surface—within and/or all around you—will be illuminated. Where do we need to bring light? What energies need to be expelled? Where can I bring balance?
There's a divine transformation happening all around. At a micro and at a macro level. This is a powerful time to examine what are the aspects of our own personal transformation.
Keep your awareness in place. Light a candle, write and energize intentions, charge your crystals, burn some sage or copal, stay attune with higher energies and find ways to be part of the change needed.
Wishing you a powerful but compassionate transformative time
