Collective (un)Conscious:

This Taurus full moon awakens the need for love, connection, and pleasure. Taurus comes from the word “tau” from Greek that was originally from Hebrew and was a pictogram for sexual intercourse: the vulva and the bar of the phallus. Venus-ruled Taurus energy puts us in touch with how we work with the erotic energy that is Earthly life. While that may sound just fine and dandy, beware the Taurus shadow side of people pleasing, vanity, or materialism. When the needs for connection aren’t met, Taurus moon may be prone to relying on sugar, shopping, or other addictions. Instead, lean into Taurus’ resourceful and stabilizing side of this sign to explore attraction and needs that come from a place of connection rather than seduction. Another way Taurus attempts to get connected is through its own objectification or using sexuality instead of inner strength, a false sense of security. (Read more here on J. Southern site)
