PLANETARY RULER: Venus in Virgo

Astrologically, Full Moons are a moment of surrender and release. And because this is an eclipse, that notion is even more true. This is not a time for manifestation, but a fated portal of transformation. And especially because it’s ruled by Venus in Virgo, it’s a grounded look at our value systems and how they’ve been working (or not working) for us in the long run.
Venusian energy, at its best, knows how to relate to other people. The trick is that it should do so without dis-servicing itself. That’s where the Virgo energy comes in here. Virgo is all about service to other people, but it can easily become resentful if that diligent care is not acknowledged for its helpfulness and support.
2023’s Full Moon Eclipse in Taurus is the FINAL eclipse on the Scorpio/Taurus axis we’ll have for 19 more years. This moment is a powerful culmination to a much bigger story that’s been unfolding for us, collectively and individually, since 2021.
Think back to the corresponding Taurus New Moon that happened back on May 19th, 2023, and even further back to the fall of 2022. You might notice themes that began back then reaching a final resting ground.
The fixed signs (Taurus, Scorpio, Leo, and Aquarius) will feel this Full Moon most intensely.
