FULL MOON IN TAURUS, 19 degrees

While we’re clearly here for the Love, money just happens to be one of the great teachers of our time.
With the Full Moon in Taurus opposite the alchemical powers of the Scorpio Sun, we’ve been gifted a potent opportunity to tune into the stories we’re living in the areas of Wealth Creation, Dream-Building and Love-Making.
Yes, this Taurus Full Moon comes to you with an important message about your love and your money.
With so much focus on how to manifest, sometimes what we glean from social media’s depiction of Universal Laws of Attraction, Vibration and Inspired Action can land as overused catchphrases and outworn memes.
But manifesting what our soul is calling us to is anything but trite.
Exploring the landscape of our most sacred dreams is holy work, requiring deep nourishment rooted in self-love and self-acceptance and a clear recognition of soul-aligned values.
Taurus stands in all its fixed, Earthy Essence as an energtic Ally that
fortifies our values and beliefs,
connects us literally to the stuff our dreams are made of
and provides the resources to make those dreams comes true.
Archetypes often assigned to Taurus ideals of love and money such as the Prostitute, the Romantic, the Lover, the Laborer, the Builder (of dreams), the Accumulator and the Miser are powerful energetic forces we experience inside and out that show us when our relationship to love and money becomes imbalanced.
While Love is the foundation of all physical matter on this planet, money itself is a neutral energy.
That is, until we become imprinted by the economic systems we’re born into, the generational stories we’re evolving from, the societal influences we’re bombarded with, the beliefs we cling to.
Our human-crafted realities in contrast to an ancient, buried knowing of our inherent divine worth trigger an inner tension that will eventually demand we regain a balanced relationship between love and money, ensuring we get our priorites aligned.
MONEY AND ANGELS
When I was 27 years old, I thought Love ruled my life until I had my first conscious encounter with my Angelic Guides, my Multidimensional Mentors as I call them now, who showed up to deliver a life-altering experience in a used bookstore.
A book sandwiched in a tightknit row of other titles inexplicably dislodged itself and impossibly moved to my outstretched hands.
I watched the book ever so slightly rock back and forth, vibrating as if the book’s atoms were being broken down and rearranged so it could float to the place I could physically touch it.
And as amazing as “The Mircale of the Moving Book” was, a second book-moving miracle occurred later that week at a different store.
After this second book inched its way into my life, I cancelled all my work for the next several days, devouring the contents of these magical books–one about money, the other about love.
And although I’ve always held an unwavering belief that the reason for our existence is love, the book about manifesting money became my holy text for several years.
Having lived much of my childhood in financial scarcity, I felt the words on each page of the money book like electrical switches firing inside, activating and aligning me to this secret that the Universe wanted to give me everything I desired.
And what I wanted most at 27 was money–which to me would keep me safe and provide me security in a world that hadn’t felt that way since I was a child.
With my Beginner’s Mind and an “anything is possible” mentality, I easily manifested through affirmations and creative visualizations a thriving educational business, building my client base to a place where I stopped adding names to a waitlist that had grown to three years long.
On the money and career front, it was a liberating, empowering time, realizing that I could send a request to the Universe about the support I was seeking–financial and otherwise–and often in as little as two hours, I’d receive.
I had that much faith in and evidence of the Law of Attraction in action.
On the homefront, however, the weak foundation I’d built over several years was crumbling.
While growing my business and serving the children I was working with continued to consume most of my time, I saw the imbalance in my priorities had caught up in my life–to the point of negligence.
And my body was letting me know.
AN ENCOUNTER WITH A PROSTITUTE
I know the Prostitute well, starting as a child who worked for money at the tender age of 10, enjoying the ability to buy the litre of milk that sometimes her parents could not afford to buy.
The Prostitute’s been good to me, always a powerful archetypal Teacher, a loyal Advisor, who shows me what and how much I value my gifts and my worth by what I’m receiving in exchange, not just in my relationship to money but also in love.
Whether we like it or not, we’re all engaging with the energy of the Prostitute at some level when we exchange our time, energy, gifts and talents for some form of payment—typically money, but not always.
We can give to receive things such as information, mentorship, attention, praise, status, companionship, comfort or security.
In my first business, I knew I was impacting kids’ lives with what I was teaching them and the sweet relationships we were creating and I was being compensated well financially, but my soul knew that I had more to do and be in this lifetime.
I had to ask myself: Was I being greedy? Was it wrong to want a richer experience of a purpose-driven life?
My body didn’t think so, as different parts of my physical being started to rebel, acting up and then shutting down with complaint after physical complaint until I could no longer ignore my tired, aching, sick body which was telling me I’d sacrificed my inner being, barely feeding Her spiritual nourishment, artistic expression, emotional fulfillment and intimate human love.
I longed for a different experience of life and when I my levels of self-love and worth increased, I asked for it and over time I received.
What if your ability to manifest the life you’re dreaming about has everything to do with what you stand for?
What if creating a life of spiritual, intellectual, creative, emotional and physical wealth is based on your alignment to your values and them becoming a living, breathing, EXPANDING part of your reality that does not sacrifice or undervalue LOVE in the process?
In answering those questions, you might need to develop a relationship with your core values, your pillars for loving and creating as a sacred act of awareness, a living inner practice.
This Full Moon might be your time to make your values clear to yourself.
Write them down. Post them. Collage them. Talk about them every day, so you’ll know when you’re off the mark, when you’re unintentionally living in direct opposition to what it is your soul is seeking, what your heart is truly beating for.
Once we can discern between our ego’s temporary desires and our soul’s need for lasting nourishment, we fall naturally into alignment with core values that stand as Gatekeepers for our dreams.
Let your goals of love and money (and all that money will bring to you) be in balance and in support of your the dreams that come from your soul.
For it is in your fulfillment of these dreams, you live in great service to those dear humans who need to believe that the Universe wants them to love and prosper too.
In love, creation and community
in the light of this Taurus Full Moon,
YOUR FULL MOON CEREMONY:
We all have inner work to do. Tarot is a potent tool in excavating the shadow material that lies below the surface of our conscious thoughts, the subconscious material that is at the root of much of what we are manifesting–what we want to and often what we don’t.

A CALL FOR ACCOUNTABILITY – Would you like some support?
You often hear people like me write at the end of a post that sharing is caring and most of the time we’re talking about your generosity in sharing the post, an opinion or your reaction as an act of caring for those in our community who long to know what others are thinking and feeling.
But what about sharing as an act of self-love? Sharing as a way to have others acknowledge you and your journey?
In that light, cast the cards and if you feel called, come back here and share below what it is you learned about your dreams, your blocks or your call to action in your “Love and Wealth Creation” spread.
