This Full Moon highlights the axis of desire and matters pertaining to personal values and resources versus shared values and resources, emotional security versus social security and attachments versus surrender are coming to a head.
Venus, the ruler over the Taurus Full Moon, activates the Saturn-Chiron square with dynamic aspects and then opposes Uranus, indicating that we’re presented with an opportunity to gain more stability, control or structure in a situation that has left us wanting, ‘hurting’ and struggling for a long time.
Finally, there’s a breakthrough, but it could cause us some inner turmoil, because we might feel conflicted about making a choice if we have to go back and forth over the issue. Consequently, we might be wavering and vacillating, uncertain how to proceed, especially if the terms don’t agree with us or if our values aren’t met and we would have to settle for less.
Therefore, the change or commitment is also a compromise. It might even require from us to take sides or switch parties or affiliations. We could really feel divided about it all. However, with the Scorpio Sun in trine to Neptune, we have to realize that nothing is permanent. Things change all the time; nothing lasts forever. In the end it is our life and we don’t owe our loyalty or have to justify our choices to anyone. We are free to make choices or changes anytime if the conditions don’t suit us any longer or if better options come our way. That’s the power we have.
As the Libra lunation cycle culminates in the Taurus Full Moon, the impulse that sounded forth at the time of the Taurus New Moon back on April 26 will also come to fruition. In the symbolical language of the Sabians the story unfolds like this: ‘The airplane flying high in the sky’ (Sabian Symbol for Libra New Moon) is replaced by ‘a window-shopping young couple’ (Sabian Symbol for the Taurus Full Moon) – what was at the beginning far out of our reach is now within our grasp. ‘The woman of Samaria at the ancestral well’ (Sabian Symbol for the Taurus NM of April 26), the social outcast is now ‘attending an official embassy ball’ (Sabian Symbol for the Scorpio Sun) or in other words – invited to participate in the cultural interchanges on a ‘higher level’.
The Sabian Symbol for the Full Moon at 11:58 Taurus states:
“A young couple window-shopping. Keynote: The fascination of the youthful ego with the products of its culture – SOCIALIZATION OF DESIRES.”
The Sabian Symbol for the Sun at 11:58 Scorpio states:
“An official embassy ball. Keynote: Group consciousness as it flowers at the highest level in cultural interchanges between representatives of the elite of the ruling class – ritualized DISPLAY of power, prestige and wealth.”

Suggested by these statements is that our wishes or longings can come true if we accept the ‘offering’. We’ve been granted ‘entrance’ to the ‘larger halls of society’ and it’s up to us to make the best of it.
Tarot card of the day is “Death”, marking an ending and the completion of a chapter or the concluding of unfinished business. We have a chance to put the past behind us as we’re going through that which cannot be avoided, while accepting the inevitable and riding our fate. It symbolises the death of a situation in our lives. Death comes in many shapes and forms and throughout our life we go through many little deaths. Every transition involves a death before the rebirth process.
