Scorpio Moon Meets Taurus Sun

As we transition from the darkness of winter into the blossoming of spring, the Scorpio Full Moon illuminates our path, as we let go of what is no longer serves us we make space to plant seeds of intention for the future. During this time, the Sun is in the Earth sign of Taurus, grounding us and keeping us rooted in the earth providing stability and support. At this time we are planting seeds in the deep, dark, nourishing soil of the Earth where our roots spread and grow. Though, we may not see the plant sprouting for quite some time above the soil, there is growth and progress being made. This is a reminder that if you are not seeing results in your life immediately to trust that you are growing and will see things reflected in your external reality when the time is right. 

Taurus invites us to connect deeply with the earth, using our senses to find presence, while Scorpio urges us to delve into our subconscious programming and release emotional pain and triggers. Both signs call us to align with the rhythms of the Universe, Taurus through connection with nature and Scorpio through introspection.

This full moon offers us the opportunity to feel interconnected with all that surrounds us, recognizing that we are part of the vastness of the Universe. We can tap into our own inner power and draw inspiration from the natural world, knowing that we are made of the same energy as the trees, oceans, mountains, and stars. Embracing the energies of Scorpio and Taurus, we can cultivate a sense of oneness with the Universe and embrace the magic of life.
