The Full Taurus Moon

Full Taurus moon 2010

We are going into the a full Taurus moon- it will actually be exact at 9:28 am Sunday morning the 21st. It is also known as The Hunters Moon. A Taurus moon’s energy is fixed, semi-fruitful, feminine, calm, nurturing, and earthy. The Moon is exalted (very strong) in this sign. Taurus is known as the “farmer’s sign”, because it is associated with precipitation and farmland. It is a good sign when  patience, perseverance, and practicality are needed in a project. Anyone who knows anything about this particular sign can interject the word stubborn in in various places also. The sign of Taurus is ruled by the planet Venus, the planet of love and pleasure. In mythology she was the goddess whose dominion is emotions and love. She was said to make life beautiful.
In an astronomical look, Venus is the second planet from the sun (just over some 67 million miles away) and is very close to earth in density, mass and size. It’s orbit is in between us and the sun, and no other planet comes as near to us. This time of year Venus appears in the morning star position, and can be seen on the eastern horizon a few hours before sunrise. It has a faint blue color, and is very bright. If you are still having a hard time finding it, grab your Blackberry (or in my case, grab a friend that has one) and find it’s location on the that cool star map that is on there. After a while you will get to where you can spot it on your own.
With the full moon in this position, is a very good time to plant cabbages and green leafy annuals and trim things back to increase growth.
It is also just a wonderful moon to grab someone you care about, and spend some special time outside just looking up at the sky- *wink* !
