Full Moon in Taurus | October 2018

{A Full Moon happens every month.  This is the part of the cycle when the Moon is in opposition with the Sun.  It's a great time for us to see what we need to release or let go of, reap what we've sown (literally or metaphorically) and tune into what is really being revealed to us since this is the brightest time of the month.  It's like clicking zoom in on your screen.  The images and fonts become larger and enhanced.  This is the opportunity we get every month to do that in our own lives.}

The Moon gets exalted in the sign of Taurus, for the Full Moon on October 24th, 2018.  Here I'll share my take on the energies of this Full Moon, including my intuitive insight for what's going on in the cosmos (astrological influence) and wisdom from the Major Arcana Tarot Card aligned with this zodiac sign + the card aligned with this part of the Universe, so you can leverage this collective energy and move thru this phase with greater confidence, prepared and aligned with the vibes!


Of ALL the Full Moons in a year, this is the one that’s got the magical elixir that really does seem to make things appear out of thin air. A Taurus Full Moon could be affectionately referred to as the Manifesting Maven Moon. It’s a double-dose of Feminine Power with Taurus ruled by Venus, Goddess of Love and the Moon is a Goddess herself.

And this time… this beautiful, bountiful Full Moon gets amplified with a cosmic jolt of electricity!

Uranus Rx sits pretty with the Moon in her favorite zone in the whole Universe.

Uranus is often considered the “Great Awakener”, and I associate this planet with The Fool in the Tarot deck. New cycles. Breakthroughs. Authenticity. Freedom.


SO, we could get some kind of reality check when it comes to what we have or don’t have in our life (or what we get around now) and why it’s even there to begin with.

Is it really aligned with who you truly are?

This includes the people in our lives…

Do they really see & appreciate your unique gifts, skills and talents?


These are questions that could arise within and grab our attention. It may be difficult to resist the impulse to deep-dive into the realms of Scorpio & its irresistible hunger for more. We may be so desperately wanting (or needing) to make progress that we miss the blessings this Full Moon has on tap.

But when we can relax into a sense of inner-peace and fulfillment, needing nothing outside of ourselves to fill the space within, miracles may appear.

Money On Your Mind, Mind On Your Money

While, conceptually, we may know that we are Whole & Divine beings, needing nothing in the world to complete us… that “happiness comes from within not without”, and all that jazz… it can be difficult really feel that under this Full Moon-light.

The disks in the Tarot relate to our 3-D world. Health. Finances. Home. Our stuff.

And with the 5 of Disks, we worry there’s not enough of something, or lots of things, perhaps. While our physical reality feels so out of balance, it could seem hopeless. A stable foundation from which we can build upon may appear elusive as more and more of what we want seems to slip away, or stay just beyond our reach.

It’s heavy. It’s too much not-enough-ness.

I find it interesting that both the Sun and the Moon, while opposing each other, are side-by-side with retrograde planets. The Sun, in Scorpio, with retrograde Venus nearby, and the Moon hooked up with retrograde Uranus. Meaning — this is an internal process that we’re working through now.

While it may feel like we are in an endless loop or time-warp, that’s an illusion we don’t have to buy into. Just because we can’t see the way through a struggle doesn’t mean there isn’t a way. The trick now is to get out the revolving thought processes that keep us sitting in an idle position.

>> If these words are resonating with you, take a moment and spread your arms out wide. (I mean it. Just do it!) Then… bring your arms forward in front of your body and wrap them around your chest. Let your hands rest on your shoulder blades or sides, take a deep breath and relax. Yes, hug yourself! It actually works wonders when it comes to relieving upper-body tension, too. <<

With this Full Moon in Taurus we get an opportunity to release some heavy burdens we’ve placed on ourselves, and review what we feel actually holds true and lasting value.

And the 5 of Disks, as worrisome as it seems, reveals that we have access to intuitive & creative solutions but we must first break the cycle of worry to fully realize them. While we may not be feeling supported by the physical plane, we have unwavering support form the Spiritual realms. We can be touched by Angels and renew our connection with our Spirit Guides when we quiet our minds and listen.

The Magic Potion Speaks Volumes

Open up and start talking. Or writing. With this Full Moon in Taurus, when we get real with ourselves and initiate a discussion to clear the air we can make actual progress.

Speak your truth and give a voice to your worries. With so much energy in Scorpio, a psychologist or energy healer could be especially helpful.

Listen closely to yourself while you spill your guts, too. It’s quite possible that you’ll notice some sneaky subconscious rhetoric in the language you use, and it may be all you need to experience a breakthrough and feel lighter moving forward.


Signs to Watch For 

[The astrological vibes affect the mode of operation, if you will, for how we tend to receive our signs. It's like this -- if you know you'll be getting an answer via email, you'll check your inbox, right? So, here's how the messages may show up for you, so you know where to look.  You'll understand the mode that Spirit may use to contact you or guide you.]

Taurus vibes during this Full Moon phase may translate as signs & divine downloads of information through music and sound. Taurus is aligned with the throat chakra.

The signs could arrive through the people and things we value most, even material objects that hold sentimental value (like a note discovered tucked inside your Great-Grandmother’s armoire, for example).

The signs can be most obvious in earthy forms, and currency, like cash or coins.  I'd recommend really tuning into your body for signs, too, as we are re-calibrating our vibrations & could experience heightened senses with Uranus in Taurus.  Trust your first instincts.


While I know it may come with mixed emotions and heaviness, with this Full Moon in Taurus, when we realize we need nothing outside of ourselves to make us whole, we can breakthrough and make progress on the things that matter most to us.

Full Moon Blessings to you & yours,

How To Get Out of A Funk

Black Hole: a region of space having a gravitational field so intense that no matter or radiation can escape it
— Dictionary
ELEV8MAGIC BLOG TEMPLATE (1).png

Warning: This approach will seem counter-intuitive. And it’s deep. But trust me, it works.


We’ve all been there… in a funk. Everything feels off. Maybe a little or maybe a lot. Maybe it creeps up and feels worse at times, and other times you can move past it or write it off as just a bad day.

But things are going more wrong than right no matter how much you try to gloss it over or tell yourself you just need to look at the bright side and maybe amp up your positive affirmation game.



No amount of band-aids or blanketing will remove the funk. It’s like a black hole, with a gravitational pull so strong it feels inescapable. No matter how hard you try to carry on or push through, or keep your chin up, it’s dark.

No matter what you do or how many times you tell yourself to simply accept it. It’s still there, haunting you.

You may be afraid that it will consume you, if you dare to look at it. To truly see what is. Because what is… it’s the cold hard truth. And what if you can’t handle the truth?


I’m sure you’ve heard the saying, The only way out is through…



Be Gentle AND Get Real.


Yes, it is possible to be kind and gentle with yourself while also being brutally honest with yourself about a sucky situation at the same time. While we have been conditioned to think that things are always one or the other, in every which way. We live in a realm of paradoxes. The reality is it’s both and, not either or.


The gentle part is about giving yourself permission to even go there, and resist the temptation to judge or criticize what you’re thinking or feeling.

Then, the reality check. What is it that’s causing the funk?

Get really real with yourself. What actually sucks? What are you not wanting to really feel or look at? What are you absolutely sick of? What cannot you not seem to shake or let go of?

Stop trying to make it out to not be that bad or compare your situation to anyone else’s. Don’t downplay it or write it off.

Sometimes the MOST loving thing you can do for yourself is be real about what’s going on… the actual situation AND your thoughts & feelings about it, however negative or ugly or seemingly unwarranted they are.



Welcome to the Party.


Your very own pity-party. That’s right. I’m saying it’s OK, even necessary when you’re really in a funk, especially if it’s gone on for some time, to throw yourself an all-out pity party.

ALL. OUT.

Grab a pen and paper and go to town. I mean that — pen and paper. It’s incredibly cathartic to get it out in writing, it’s an emptying process as my friend Stella would say. [She’s actually got a great little piece she’s written about that here.]


Write down every single little thing that you’re sick of. Every feeling that comes up when you look at the situation as it actually is.

The aching, the sorrow, the have’s & have nots, the shoulds and should’ves.

The melodramatic and the validated.

All the ways things have gone wrong, and the failures, and disappointments.

The hurt and the spite, the unfairness and the deceit.


((If you feel like you need someone to hold space for you to do this, trust yourself and reach out to a close friend, counselor or coach. There is absolutely no shame in that.))


Let the tears fall where they may. And let them be ok. Take as long as you need. Let it flow until it’s exhausted, until there’s nothing left to write. Let your heart ache and break and breathe.

And then…



LISTEN.


Listen to what comes through you next.

Your Soul may softly speak to you. You may feel a gentle hand on your shoulder, and simply know without a doubt your loved one is there. Or a humble peacefulness settles in, reminding you that your Angels are with you. Your Divine Support Team may loudly chant a pep-talk to lift you up. New ideas may come to mind effortlessly, that allow you to see new possibilities or solutions.

Where once was a jumbled frustrating mess of mixed messages and doubt, now your intuition may seem fresh and even amplified.

It becomes clear to us what we CAN change and what we can’t. It makes it a little easier to loosen our grip on on the things we cannot. It makes a little easier to do something different when you see the situation more clearly.

That’s what happens when we allow ourselves to be raw and vulnerable and you know, human.

It may feel like a black hole sucking us into the deep & unforgiving darkness at first… But it’s really much more like a worm hole. A short-cut to get to the other side.

Follow Through…

Once you’ve arrived on the other side. Follow through with some loving-kindness. You may feel like doing something for yourself you haven’t done in a while or have neglected. You may notice something that no longer matches how you feel inside, because you feel different. You feel better.

You may feel like cleaning or taking a bath or going for walk. You may even feel like shredding the paper that you wrote everything down on. Whatever inkling you get, follow through with it.

The Energy of it all

It requires so much of our energy to resist our own emotions. The more time we spend avoiding, or pretending it’s not there, the more it swells within us like virus, and eventually it kicks into overdrive. And like a virus, it gradually starts killing off the good stuff… we start to overlook or not appreciate the good things in our lives. We numb out, check out and disconnect. It sucks the life-force out of us.

When we dare to go THROUGH it and see it for what it is and feel how we really already feel deep down… Magic happens.

We release. We purify. We heal. We open. Up.

Our luck starts to change, our attitude shifts. We get a boost of new vitality. It’s a rebirth.
