Learn about November's Full Moon in Taurus, what it means for you, and how to celebrate it with witchcraft and moon magic.
In the cold of winter, we must learn to appreciate nature's wisdom and beauty. The trees shed their leaves in preparation for an extended period without sunlight. Beavers build elaborate homes that serve as shelters against harsh weather conditions like wind or rain. Taking in these events can help put things into perspective when times are tough and help make an assessment that there isn't much room left for regretting past mistakes and the only thing left to do is learn from them and move forward on new goals. We need a place that will warm our bodies as well as our souls. Now is the perfect time to perform rituals to let go of the negativity in your life and take in the renewal energy of the upcoming Full Moon.
The Moon is an excellent guidepost for navigating the currents of life. With its wax and wane, it can help you decide when to let go or hold tightly so your journey may be successful. This November's Full Moon comes at a time when endings seem appropriate, and maybe things have been holding us back from changing course before winter arrives.
This moon usually comes in a period that is starting to be particularly cold, and this November Full Moon is also known as the Frost Moon or the Mourning Moon. That of November is spiritually associated with personal change, inner reflection, and the possibility of letting go of old things to open up to the new. The full moon of November offers us the opportunity to prepare for future growth by identifying the habits, relationships, and ways of life to which we are firmly anchored but no longer serve us. This lunar phase can give the necessary push to initiate or modify the stagnant parts of our life, and it may remind us to remove negativity and stress, to eliminate what makes us suffer but learn from what suffering has taught us.
Taurus Moon and what that means for you
The upcoming Full Moon on November 8th will fall in the astrological sign Taurus. Taurus is a sensual sign ruled by the lover Venus. Taurus loves allowing themselves a lazy day once in a while (although they’d enjoy a lazy day every day if they could), snuggling with pets, eating delicious food, and being rooted in earthy sensual energy. Add in the upcoming eclipse during November’s Full Moon, which tends to bring out all sorts of emotions, and it may be best to stay home and not add any more stress if you’re feeling overwhelmed. And if nothing else, follow the lead of the Taurus, and if you feel like taking some time off, do what feels right and enjoy.
Taurus is all about filling needs and desires. When the moon enters this sign, it's time to make your dreams come true so take advantage of it. Taurus are orientated towards filling needs directly, whether monetarily, emotionally, or spiritually. You may find that this time will provide all sorts of opportunities that were previously only a dream or vision. Take advantage while you can because once these opportunities pass, it is difficult to go back again without serious effort.
Taurus is a zodiac sign known for its practicality and goal-oriented nature. As such, they can often get caught up in wanting things that may not be necessary to them but could make life more comfortable, like an extra pair of shoes, just because love a particular brand. But don't worry: this earth sign has other qualities which balance out these desires, so they aren’t solely focused on materialism (although my Taurus husband does love his Cole Haans!).
