Your Full Moon in Taurus Horoscope & Reflection, According To Your Zodiac Sign
There are things that only happen once in a blue moon, and the year 2020 is hopefully one of them. Whether you blame it on the Saturn-Pluto in Capricorn conjunction, or the United States of America’s Pluto Return, there’s really no denying the facts: This year has brought a series of shocking revelations, and life-altering circumstances. Although, despite the mortifying uncertainty of it all, there’s a silver lining in it being collectively cathartic. And when you look back at the astrological transits that took place back in January (namely, the historical Saturn-Pluto conjunction and the full moon lunar eclipse in Cancer, as it was in direct alignment with both of these malefic planets) you’ll notice the intensity and magnitude of the events that followed.
Naturally, the thought of a full blue moon on the same night of All Hallows’ Eve, feels like the missing link to what seems like the most unorthodox year of all time, but it hardly compares to the astrological aspects taking place during this lunation. However, before we dissect the celestial components of this highly anticipated blue moon, let’s take a closer look at the eerie elephant in the room. Now, don’t get me wrong; the full blue Hunter's moon is the protagonist of this story, but the spooktacular setting of this paradoxical lunation continues to fuel the irony of it all. Also referred to as the ancient celebration of Samhain, Halloween marks a powerful turning point in the wheel of the year.
Say what you will, but the ancient language of astrology ties back to the sacred rhythms of the earth—it’s all connected. As we start descending into the darker half of the year upon the sun’s shift into Libra, we begin shedding parts of ourselves that no longer serve us. Needless to say, it’s no wonder a holiday like Halloween—let alone an ancient celebration such as Samhain—happens during a Pluto-ruled season, and with good reason. Celebrated from Oct. 31 through Nov. 1, the Celtics believed it's the one time a year where the barriers between the physical world and spirit world dissolve. Allowing spirits to pass through, legend has it that costumes and masks were made to trick evil spirits, in order to avoid harm.
Despite the mysterious thrill of it all, it’s still important to keep in mind during this time. Full moons are powerful enough on their own, so when you integrate the rarity of it also being a blue moon (the second full moon in a month) on the eeriest night of the year, it most definitely means something. You may or may not be familiar with the “as above, so below” affirmation, but its meaning will also be incredibly significant during this lunation. Remember, during the full moon phase, the sun sits directly opposite the moon; this is symbolic of the harmony between the divine feminine, and the sacred masculine. The sun will be in Scorpio, which means the moon will ignite its polarity, Taurus.
Taurus’ ruling element, and zodiac archetype, is a representation of Mother Earth; Scorpio, on the other hand, is a symbol of the Underworld, along with its planetary ruler, Pluto, who is also known as Hades, according to the Greek myth. Full moons are a call for balance, and the Taurus-Scorpio axis represents the circle of life. In addition to the undeniable synchronicities—AS ABOVE SO BELOW—it’s not every day you see a full moon on Halloween. In fact, this happens approximately once every 19 years or so, and to think we still haven’t covered the *literal* paradox of this celestial event. In addition to activating the security-seeking sign of Venus-ruled Taurus, Mother moon will also be sitting in a conjunction with revolutionary Uranus.
Also known as the Great Awakener; planet of freedom, chaos, rebellion, and unexpected change, Uranus’ spontaneity is just as shocking as it is spontaneous. La Luna is a representation of your intuitive mind, emotional foundation, and shadow self, so her conjunction with Uranus could bestow us all with a series of lightning-like visions, downloads, and emotions. Again, all while the veil between both worlds is at its thinnest. You also never know what you're going to get with Uranus, so all we can do is expect the unexpected. It doesn’t get “weirder” than Uranus, which goes perfectly well with a day like October 31st, don’t you think? Astrologically, with the moon and Uranus in Taurus, it's up to this fixed earth sign's planetary ruler, Venus.
Venus—the planet of love, beauty, pleasure, values, and the divine feminine—will have already entered Libra, which again, continues to emphasize the overall theme of balance. It doesn't matter how you look at it—Yin and yang; night and day; as above so below; life and death—the essence of rebirth, renewal, and regeneration is ever-present during this time. Sitting directly across the sun in Scorpio, this rare lunation will be an emotional reflection of the Underworld. Everything that’s hidden beneath the surface—within and/or all around you—will be illuminated. Although, thanks to electric Uranus, everything coming to light will be nothing short of shocking. More importantly, Pluto is Scorpio's ruler, and Pluto is sitting next to Jupiter-Saturn in Capricorn.
Having said that, and taking every piece of this cosmic occurrence into consideration, the full blue moon conjunct Uranus in Taurus will not only touch upon the powerful metamorphosis currently happening in the world at large, it will also highlight the divine transformation that’s taking place within you. Always remember, just because you can’t see something, doesn’t mean it isn’t there. Change is the only thing that's constant, and you are a multi-dimensional being made of stars. Don't resist the soul's urge to transform; you've been doing it all your life.

Here's the situation, Libra. Halloween is already strange enough as it is, but nothing can compare to a full blue moon conjunct revolutionary Uranus. While the sun in Scorpio continues to shed light on your security-conscious second house of finances, pleasure, and values, this lunation will shake up your intimate eighth house of sex, joint ventures, and shared resources. This, of course, creates tension between your heart and mind; your desire to merge with another mind, body, and soul, versus your innate longing for freedom. Given Uranus' notorious reputation for catching the world off guard, all you can expect is an unexpected plot twist, especially when it comes to a significant partnership, and/or energetic exchange.

Reflection: How can you indulge in the eclectic synergy of your partnerships? Looking back at the beginning of the year, how have you found freedom in your relationships?

Themes revolving around your family, lineage, and living space could come up for review during this time but with the electric change-maker planet in the mix, there could also be an unexpected disruption, or perhaps even a little bit of chaos. Given that the sun continues to beam over your public career sector, dealing with things in the home front, let alone in private, might be more difficult than you'd like. Sort out your priorities, Aquarius. Everything is perspective. Reflection: How can you tap into your inner genius to cultivate the work versus life balance you desire? How has your definition of stability progressed since the beginning of the year?
