When: October 24th, at 12:45 PM EST
Effects: Full moon effects can be felt a few days prior, and a few days afterwards. If sensitive to planetary shifts, especially the moon, its influence may be felt in the weeks before.
This Taurus full moon calls us to slowwwww down.
You may be looking at other people and feel like they are running circles around you, worrying that you are falling behind in the pursuit of your goals. Don’t let the distractions of worrying about what others are doing, sway your focus from your goals. This full moon in Taurus beckons you to focus on YOU with the intensity of the Scorpio Sun.
This is the time for slow and steady progress.
As tempted as you may be to rush things and jump to the finish line, its important to take solid, small steps towards your goals. Don’t spend your time ruminating on the progress, highlight reels, and achievements of others. Stay in your lane, because that is where you shine, that is where no one else can possibly compete with you. Do not lose your self worth in comparison of how others see you, and how much others have achieved. Focus on nurturing and cultivating your self worth, through exploring your core identity and individuality. Slow and steady progress gives you the perfect time you need to truly discover who you are, what’s important to you, and how you want to express yourself, to share your truest, most authentic self with the world.
This full moon brings focus to how you subconsciously self sabotage or give your power away. The Taurus full moon calls you to feel clearly, what it is that you want, and to move slowly, while staying within your comfort zone, as you build the life of your dreams. You may feel tempted to move fast- continue slowly anyway, step by step, allowing momentum to build naturally, steadily, and on solid ground.
How do you assert your boundaries?
Another takeaway from this Taurus full moon is redefining and recognizing our boundaries and how we set them; specifically our emotional boundaries, our energetic boundaries and our boundaries around our personal identity. In which ways do you allow others to dictate your experience or tell you who you are?
Walls keep everybody out.

Are you giving to others at the expense of your self-worth?
Are you giving to others at the expense of your self worth? Are you withholding from others because you’re afraid of being taken advantage of? By re- evaluating our boundaries, we move into a space where our inner voice can clearly guide us. Our boundaries ensure that our inner voice, our needs, our energy, our space, is respected. Our inner voice lets us know- when it feels good to give and share, and when it doesn’t feel good to give and share. When we respect that by enforcing healthy boundaries, there is no need to fear over sharing or feeling taken advantage of, because your emotional signals will always let you know if something feels right or not.
This is about tuning into what feels comfortable for you emotionally, and protecting yourself through asserting strong, and healthy boundaries. Now, this doesn’t mean boundaries need to be set in an aggressive, confrontational way. If you fear confrontation, know this: boundaries can easily be set with dignity, respect, and grace; exuding a calm inner strength that speaks and achieves volumes over aggression.
Questions to meditate on:
- Where am I moving too fast? Where do I need to slow down to build steady progress? How can I take a few small steps everyday to manifest my goals?
- Where are my boundaries? Where do I allow others to dictate my experience and who I am? Where do I not enforce my boundaries? How can I connect more with my inner voice, to make sure that I will recognize and respect those boundaries?
- What do I need emotionally to feel fulfilled and happy? How can I meet those needs first, before merging or sharing my energy and personal resources with others? Healthy boundaries will help you discern which people are right for you and which ones are not.
Make sure that you are honouring your own personal needs before giving and sharing with others, while tuning into your heart to see when it feels good to share and connect. This Taurus full moon demands that you set strong, healthy boundaries, gently allowing your inner voice to lead the way.
Happy Hunters Moon!
