The Taurus Full Moon Lunar Eclipse arrives on October 28, just as the Pleiades constellation begins moving high into our evening sky.
The rise of the Pleiades has long been considered a time when the energies of death and rebirth are at their highest. This is enhanced by the Sun being in Scorpio, the sign of transformation, and this powerful Lunar Eclipse in Taurus.
The Taurus Full Moon Lunar Eclipse is a graduation point. We have reached the end of this Eclipse cycle, which began back in November 2021. This is a powerful time of release, surrender, and culmination. It is also a time when the veil is thin, and we find ourselves peeling back another layer to a higher state of truth.
The theme of endings is strong around this Eclipse, and with Pluto, Mars, and Mercury active too, we may feel tensions rising, and power struggles may be on display. You can get your full forecast for the Eclipse here.
To help bring ease to whatever you may be experiencing under this Eclipse, here is a ritual to guide you –
Taurus Full Moon Lunar Eclipse Ritual October 2023
This ritual can be done up to 10 days before and 10 days after the Eclipse (October 28).
You will need:
- Aura cleansing tool of choice
- Surrender to Peace Guided Meditation
- Pen and Paper
- Taurus Lunar Eclipse Reading
- “Graduation” treat (like a piece of chocolate, your favorite movie, a bouquet of flowers, etc.)
1.) Begin by cleansing your aura using your tool of choice. As you cleanse, feel free to recite the following mantra/prayer-
“I am cleansing myself light and free. I am cleansing myself so I can be me. I am cleansing away the struggles of my past; I am cleansing and opening my heart. My heart is now open, and I am aligned. My heart is now open, and I am aligned.”
Next, cleanse your surroundings. Feel free to recite the following as you do-
“I cleanse this space with light and loving energy. Only positive energy may enter this space. I cleanse this space with light and loving energy. It is safe for me to dwell here; it is safe for me to call this space home. My home is cleansed, and I am renewed. My home is cleansed, and I am renewed.”
2.) Light your candle, get nice and comfortable, and begin your Surrender to Peace Guided Meditation. This meditation will help you to flow with the energies that are currently present. It is a gentle and soothing meditation that is perfect for bringing calm and balance to your body.
3.) After your meditation is complete, take your pen and paper and use the following journal prompt:
- Since November 2021, how have I grown? How has my life changed? Who am I today and what is important to me?
This journal prompt has a lot of questions, but use them to stimulate the flow and direction of your writing. Give yourself 20 minutes to write, just go with what comes up for you, even if you don’t quite remember exactly the journey you have travelled. For best results with this, try not to lift the pen off the paper the whole time you are writing. Just try to keep the stream of consciousness flowing, even if you have to write gibberish for a moment till you get back on track.
4.) Reflect on any insights, messages, or awakenings that have come up for you after writing.
5.) Now, using your intuition, select a card using your Taurus Lunar Eclipse Reading. Ponder any insights or messages that have come up for you.
6.) To close this ritual, gift yourself your graduation treat. Thank yourself for the journey you have moved through!
7.) Close the ritual by snuffing out your candle.
Lunar Eclipse Blessings!
