This Full Moon is in Taurus 8.05pm Perth time
I am a rock that faces the storm, the warmth that gives life, the hand that guides the words that relieve. I have the strength to endure yet the softness to Love without end.
The Full Moon is the time of culmination, endings and when the light bulb moments appear. We may become emotional as light is shone on stuff we know but don’t want to acknowledge. We can let go of what no longer serves.
It’s nurture time – nurturing the self, others and the things we love, whilst strengthening ourselves. We are finding balance within our physical world.
The essence that resonates with this Taurus Full Moon is the Goddess Grass Tree.
This is a big inner core strengthening essence.
This is great for young mums and caretakers, who find it hard to “switch off” after having a baby or caring for another and helps one to pace themselves – to allow some ME time.
We are stronger when we allow ourselves to relax and honor who we are, in all ways.
This essence brings out the Universal Mother within us. In this way we reflect the gentle principle, which has sheltered us along our way and pays respect to the life force, which nurtures everything in creation.
Self-nurture, creation and connecting with the earth is what the energy of Taurus is all about.
This is a very grounding moon as there are no major negative aspects affecting the energy. It’s embodiment time. Taurus is very much about finding balance within the physical plane – so its time connect with our bodies, to be realistic and sensible with our money, and energy. With the Sun in transformative Scorpio this increases themes around connecting to the deepest part of ourself, passions and fear. It allows the space to embrace all the parts of who we are – the good and the bad. By doing this you nurture ( theme of Taurus) your sense of self compassion.
Self worth and self-esteem issues may also be a factor, issues around these may surface. As could old emotional traumas awaiting to be seen and healed.
I have followed astrology religiously for many years, especially the Lunar cycles. Lunar energy helps us to tune in not only to ourselves but also to the energies of the planet – by following these energies we are able to move and flow in harmony with our environment – The Taurean energy is naturally in tune with this so make the most of opportunities as they arise.
Taurus is also the sign of creation, nature, earth, nurture and material security – there is an astrological positive aspect that may empower our sense of service, connect us to our divinity, the earth or god or goddess what ever that could be for you.
Since 2009 I have been very engrossed in learning about Aboriginal culture, especially since Flower Essence therapy is an Aboriginal healing modality. This year I was introduced to, by a friend, a group of recordings called Women’s Business, Men’s Business by Hannah Rachael Bell and spiritual teacher Shantimayi.
Hannah lived with the Ngarubyin people (Wandjina tribe) and was guided and taught for many years, by aboriginal elder David Mowaljarlai – in the far northwest of the Western Australian Kimberley near the Mitchell Platueau.
It was here she became privy to tribal life that was completely symbiotic and in harmony with the earth. Listening to her impart her wisdom has had a significant impact on me. No words can give this justice. These teachings had a profound effect on me and I know they will on you.
You can hear the recordings here and I would encourage you to take the time to listen to them as it will help to understand the intricate and symbiotic nature of the Ngarinyin Aboriginal way of life. It’s a very powerful and at times a beautiful account.
The Ngarinyin people co-exist together. They do not make one sex more dominant than the other, yet they both respect and honour each other and accept each other’s authority and the parts they play within the tribe and in their relationship with the earth.
For me what resonated the most was the way in which the women are honoured within the tribe. This astounded me and awakened within me something very strong.
Taurus is very much a feminine sign and a creative nature sign and so tuning into our bodies and what they represent seems so timely.
In Hannah’s Women’s Business series Hannah describes the essence of womanhood, the feminine principle, as the reflected light of a crystal or prism – the rainbow of light that appears through its reflection.
The feminine energy is our wisdom, our passive voice – a place within us where we are in a state of being rather than doing. It’s our intuition. It’s our connection to our bodies and as Hannah says of “being cognizant” of what happens to us physically and owning it by being aware of our own Womanhood – This image is such a beautiful symbol of something that naturally exists within all of us.
I have always thought that in order for of all of us to be here on earth – we’ve all had to come through the womb of a woman and that’s surely got to mean something and be of some sacred value.
After listening to Hannah’s recordings I finally found a place where this is so.
Within Ngarinyin aboriginal tribal culture this energy of womanhood, the feminine principal is honoured and revered. This is a simple Law of nature. It cannot be argued or ignored. The males of the Ngarinyin tribe understand this Law, as it’s nature’s Law, and is accepted that women have the natural authority because they carry the creative DNA cell. They carry the imprint for the coming generations – it’s a very aware relationship and journey of their creative force and the symbiotic relationship between sexes. One cannot exist without the other.
If we were to stop and acknowledge this creative energy – manifested as our own bodies, we would be less likely to put up with all the crap from society, the media, our culture, our families, our partners and even from each other. We would as a whole, operate in a very different way.
I don’t feel this is an idealistic way of being and this is not a feminist rant – for the contemporary woman as Hannah describes it’s the guidance on how we go about changing the values and the spiritual dimensions within our contemporary world.
Through this Full Moon trust your inner wisdom, and be open to receive what’s being offered – this could come in many forms. Conjure what needs to be conjured – it all starts as a simple idea. Let go of any resistance that you may come up against.
The Full moon energies are very supportive of this.
Get and be grounded – exercise, anything that awakens the senses and soothes the body. It’s easier to be receptive when we are grounded in our own skin.
Nurture yourself so you can to be strong in nurturing another.
Love and honour the creative force within you and trust the intuitive wisdom whilst observing what changes that are most certain to come about – physically, spiritually, mentally and emotionally.
I think it’s going to be a very powerful Full Moon.
Much Flowery Love
Since posting this blog I have learned that Hannah Rachel Bell peacefully passed away surrounded by friends and family on the 21st Oct 2015. Whist I never knew her personally, I feel I deeply knew her in spirit. I decided to post this as an honour to her and her community.
Hannah’s teachings are one of her many legacies and her work will live on in my family, my community and I. From my heart, soul and spirit I say Thank you Thank you

They are especially effective for kids with anxiety issues or young babies with colic and gastric reflux.
Just a foot note – the healing affirmation and healing properties of each flower essence are written by Vasudeva and Kadambii Barnao and I must make a credit of this here. The moon report is original prose and written by me for others to tune into the cosmic and natural environment around us – at the moment of time the aspects align – Luna energy is usually felt three days before and prior to each moon phase.
