Full Moon in Taurus ~ Earth Magic


November. I want to drink in the colors at sunset right now. They are so beautiful, soft, and earthy. The smells draw me down into my body with a subtleness that is palpable and makes me want to take a million pictures, but instead, I take it in through all of my senses imprinting the scene in my body. A few nights ago I ran back to my car to get my phone so that I could catch a few pictures to share in this blog. Its impossible to really capture all the colors, yet, I know you will feel the beauty. Taking in the Moon at these magical moments is something I treasure.


Tomorrow morning we have a Full Moon in Earthy Taurus at 5:34 am PST (8:34 am EST). Taurus is a feminine, fixed, earth sign, ruled by Venus. Under a Taurus Moon we can feel the benefits of slowing down and letting our roots grow deeper under her sensual creativity. It is a time to relish in the miracle of the Earths magic. Do you ever stop and think about the Earths magic? Her transformation from season to season? Her change of colors, temperature, light and sounds? It is something that we take for granted daily and yet we are all moving with her. Some migrate south, some of us begin our inward movement.  

Taurus is a feminine, fixed, earth sign, ruled by Venus. A Taurus Moon slows us down so that our roots can grow deeper under her sensual creativity. It is a time to cultivate the miracle of the Earths magic.

Connecting with Mother Earth under a Taurus Moon can help you to ground and find a stability that you hold inside. I have felt this stability, this grounding since yesterday. It was from a culmination of things; walks, ceremony, writing, and I woke with a feeling of being in my body, solidly, quietly, yet so content and full.

This is a Moon to reconnect with all that earthly, creative power.

Here is a short ritual:

  • Go for a walk where there are trees, tonight or tomorrow night. Step in the leaves and breathe through your nose, this is so important and something we can find we forget to do when walking. Take in the deep, rich smells of the earth and her processes of letting go, seeding, decomposing. Use the earth to release and receive.


  • Collect a seed from a plant, any plant, and bring it back and place it on your altar.

  • Use this seed as inspiration for bringing you towards your intention for the next New Moon in Sagittarius. Let it be your reminder to allow yourself to create space for new energies to enter.
  • This is a lovely time to cleanse your gemstones. If you can, place your gemstones onto the earth under the Moon for cleansing overnight. When you pick them up the next day, smell the earth and/or moonlight they carry before placing them back in your house, pocket or on your altar.

Each change of season reminds us that we too are shifting. Take in the signals and tune into yourself:

  • Where are you letting go?
  • What changes can you feel in the rhythms of your body?
  • How are the shorter days (less light) helping you to move inward?
  • What sounds are changing around you?

Stop. Breath. Believe.

Don’t forget to put your Moon Water out tonight gems ~

Full Moon Blessings,
Moon Mama
