This full moon meditation focuses on finding balance within our relationships and self. Stable Taurus is challenged by unpredictable and changing Uranus. The result, the unexpected and our vulnerabilities to surface. While it’s not always easy, it’s important to take a look at our ‘blind-spots’ or weaknesses in order to grow.
Here’s a glimpse into the astrological impacts right now:
- Venus opposes Uranus, which can create tension in our relationships and our relationship with money
- Moon conjuncts Uranus, leading to impulsive and detached tendencies
- Moon opposes Venus, exposing our need for affection
- Venus sextile to Saturn, emphasizing our need for companionship
- Moon trines Saturn, which lends patience, intuitive & emotional strength
- Fixed stars
- Mirach symbolizes giving love. The Moon conjuncts this star signaling concerns with the opposite gender, furthered by Uranus conjunct leading to unbalanced perspective or approach.
- Mira is about perseverance
- Neptune is in Pisces until Nov 25, encouraging us to stay grounded, realistic & objective
- Venus started in Libra and ends in Scorpio Nov 16, asking us to go within & look at our relationship to giving and receiving love
What does all this mean? We are still dealing with similar issues from September’s full moon. October’s new moon was about transformation, but we are now looking at our shadow in these areas in order to move forward. Again, it is important to tap into the self and really understand what it is your soul is longing for. Try not to seek a quick fix by just filling the void – this will lead to further problems. Scorpio encourages us to look deep into our hearts and souls to truly nurture ourselves.
Full Moon Meditation & Yoga
Let’s find some balance. I would begin by clearing your meditation space through prayer, mantra, sage – whatever speaks to you. Two beautiful oils to balance the masculine and feminine are Lavender (the Mother healer) and Frankincense (the Father healer). For crystals, choose those you are drawn to. I will be working with obsidian, rose & clear quartz, for the Root, Heart & Crown chakras. Perhaps turn on a 639Hz frequency such as this for harmony.
Begin with gentle movement – trust your bodies flow. Sufi grinds, spinal flexes or cat cows, allowing your breath to guide your movement. If you need to flow to let some energy move, do so. When you are ready, come back to a comfortable seat closing your eyes softly. Let’s begin with Nadi Shodana:
- Covering the right nostril, inhale through the left
- Cover the left nostril, exhale right then inhale
- Cover the right, exhale left then inhale
- Continue for 5-10 minutes feeling the flow of the breath through your body
Stay with an easy inhale exhale or Ujjayi (Ocean breath) through both nostrils once you are finished with Nadi Shodhana, noticing the full flow of the breath and ease. Imagining the breath being white light filling up every corner of your body, beginning to radiate out beyond and into your aura, creating further balance & peace around you.
Ask your soul or guides: What serves your highest and best right now?
When you feel you are completed with your meditation, take time to journal your thoughts, inspiration & insights. Through the next few weeks, find something you can do every day to nurture yourself to bring greater peace – even if it’s just showering with the lights off before bed & applying a drop of your favorite essential oil in your lotion. Give yourself this gift of love, and more love will come your way.
