The long awaited Full Moon in Taurus has finally arrived and it’s going to be huge! Maybe even the most powerful night of the year. A Blue Moon occurring on Halloween is a rare celestial occurrence, and an intense one too, as the veil between worlds and the astral planes are at their thinnest on this day! I know many of you have questions regarding the significance of the Full Moon and how you should be celebrating, so here it is! Your ultimate guide to navigating through the Full Blue Moon in Taurus! I’ll cover the significance of this celestial event, how to navigate through it’s energies, how to celebrate the occasion and share with you a simple manifestation ritual to help improve your finances!
ABOUT THE BLUE MOON
A Blue Moon is a celestial event that occurs when there are two Full Moons in one lunar calendar month. The second of the two Full Moon’s becomes the rare Blue Moon. Unfortunately, the Moon won’t actually be blue in colour, but it will be as magical as it sounds. Blue Moon’s carry the same regenerative and healing vibrations as regular Full Moon’s do. However, this one will be heavy and almost chaotic in its energy as it will occur alongside and Uranus-Moon conjunction (these planets will be sharing each others energies). The Sun, Moon and Uranus will all be at 8° Taurus which magnifies the themes of death and rebirth. This lunation will be a portal to extreme transformation!
Uranus, the wild card of this Full Moon, is the planet of rebellion, social reform and collective consciousness. When his energy combines with the power of the Full Moon, our emotions and impulses are intensified and so is the likelihood of unpredictable behaviour and changes. Now of course we also need to look into the themes of Taurus, as this is the sign that the Full Moon will unfold under. When the Moon transits through Taurus she is in her exalted positioning, meaning she is in a position of true power and awareness. Taurus rules our finances, values, materials and self-esteem, meaning any money, love, protection or self-worth rituals under this Full Moon are all highly recommended!
HOW TO CELEBRATE
Full Moons symbolise a time for celebration and expressing gratitude. This transformative lunation also offers us the perfect opportunity to manifest, HEAL and let go of all that is no longer serving us (that is, the shadows that we’re holding on to internally and the things/people/surroundings in our physical lives that we have outgrown but are still holding on to). Of course, with the Full Blue Moon aligning on Halloween, you may feel even more compelled to celebrate in a spooky or witchy fashion.
Here are a few ideas: Do a ritual (you can start with the money ritual at the end of this post if you’re stuck for ideas) ~ burn candles ~ decorate your home/space (think fairy lights, crystals, pumpkins, bats and all things Halloween-y ~ carve a pumpkin ~ make Moon water ~ work with divination (it’s the perfect time to practice with your tarot or oracle cards) ~ spend time in nature ~ meditate ~ move your body (exercise, yoga) ~ journal and set intentions ~ watch Halloween movies ~ bake something that you love or cook something new (the Moon is in Taurus after all! Bonus points if it’s autumnal themed baking) ~ do some self care (face masks, bath bombs/salts, essential oils).
This Blue Moon is the perfect time to do a ritual for improving your current financial situation! The Full Moon is transiting through Taurus, the zodiac sign of finances, materialism and luxury. The Full Moon and Uranus are all in alignment at 8°, which is a significant number in numerology that you should try to incorporate in your rituals! The number 8 symbolises wealth and prosperity in numerology, and in astrology, it is connected to the eighth house of transformation, inheritance and mysticism. There are no rules when it comes to manifesting or doing rituals, just one reminder: always protect your energy. The presence of Uranus creates very unstable energy that is a lot to work with, even if you’ve been doing this all your life. I’d recommend waiting for the Moon and Uranus to separate before starting any rituals and manifestations. This will happen from November 1st and will ensure that the energies you’re working with have stabilised. If you’re worried about missing the Halloween spark, don’t! Halloween or Samhain celebrations traditionally end on the eve of November 1st, which gives you plenty of time!
BEFORE YOU START…
Now, I know you’re excited, but it is essential that you ground yourself, protect your energy and cleanse your space before doing any ritualistic practices! If you have a specific way that you like to do this already, go ahead! If you’re unsure, I’ve listed several protection and cleansing methods below that you can do with and without any materials and resources!
Grounding: Take a walk outside amongst nature, stimulate your root chakra, move your body through exercise or yoga.
Cleansing: Use a charged Selenite crystal and visualise it cleansing your energy. Meditate and visualise yourself under a magnificent waterfall that both cleanses and removes any negative energy and reinvigorates your spirit. Burn rosemary, sage, lavender or cedar and use the smoke to cleanse your aura and space.
Protecting: Meditate and visualise yourself in a protective bubble, with an impenetrable sphere of ‘armour’ surrounding you in your bubble. Create a circle of candles (or tea lights), crystals or salt (or all three) around you and set the intention of being protected/call upon your guides for this protection. You only really need four items for this one, representing the four elements and four main points of a compass.
BLUE MOON RITUAL
Find a space, preferably on the floor, where you are comfortable and have some room around you. Try to find a space and time where you won’t be interrupted by anyone. If you can do this outside I recommend that you do! If not, inside with a window nearby where you can still see the Moonlight is just as good.
Take a moment to reflect, meditate and set your intentions. What is it that you’re seeking? Be specific, be intentional and optimistic. Say it clearly in your mind or out loud if you want to. Rather than saying ‘I hope to improve my finances’ try ‘I will find financial stability and abundance’.
This is where materials and resources are useful, but of course not necessary (The only thing that is absolutely needed is a pen and piece of paper). Gather together any of the following wealth correspondences: candles/tea lights (preferably green, brown or white), crystals (Clear Quartz, Citrine, Pyrite, Green Jade, Aventurine), coins, any gold or silver jewellery, herbs (bay leaves, cinnamon, chamomile, ginger, basil and clove) and a small bowl, jar or organza bag/pouch.
Take a piece of paper and write down the manifestations you thought of in the previous stage for example: ‘I am setting myself free from all financial limitations and burdens’. Write this in green pen if you have one and repeat it (written and spoken) eight times.
Fold the piece of paper and place it in your small bowl, jar or bag in front of you. I like to draw the symbol of Jupiter on the side as it represents luck, abundance and expansion. In this bowl, jar or bag with your manifestations, add any of the herbs, coins and gold/silver jewellery that you collected. Circle it with your candles/tea lights and crystals (if you don’t have a bowl, jar or bag but you do have a candle or jewellery, place them on top of the paper instead).
Take another moment to meditate and really focus on what it is that you’re manifesting. Call on your spirit guides and ask for their support and guidance, paying close attention to any messages that may come through in this moment.
When you feel ready, end your meditation and place your manifestations (bowl, jar, bag) on a windowsill under the illumination of the Moon. Leave it here (with your crystals) to charge until the Sun sets on November 1st (and the energies of the Blue Moon settles). Wear your charged jewellery and carry the coins with you, especially to your place of work (if possible). Have your bowl, jar or bag beside you with your candles and crystals the next time you meditate and manifest.
The more you repeat this, the more intent you put into the universe. Say the manifestations that you wrote down whenever you can, and remember to phrase it as ‘I am’ and ‘I will’ rather than ‘I want’ or ‘I hope’. Know that the universe is working as hard as you are to deliver your financial desires.
