ASTROLOGICAL MEANING 
FOR TAURUS FULL MOON

taurus-full-moon-st-200w.jpg

Taurus is the symbol of desire. It rules the incentive to progress on the path. It is the aspiration that moves us toward the realization of our goals.

Alice A. Bailey states: 

"Whether the subjective man is impelled by desire, or the disciple is driven forth upon the path of return by the urge of aspiration or whether the initiate is controlled by the will to co-operate with the Plan, he is, nevertheless, being responsive to the to the most potent manifestation of a little know and understood aspect of divinity, to which we give the inadequate name of the Will of God.

It is important to understand how desire and aspiration will govern the sign of Taurus. Desire is the central energy that moves us when the locus of our identity is the personality. The energy of desire becomes aspiration as the soul moves us along the spiritual path. And from a still higher perspective our motivating energy is transmuted into spiritual will.

 

The symbol for Taurus is the bull. Our personality in Taurus acts like a bull charging headlong into situations without thinking and without regard to the consequences -such as "a bull in a china shop". The bull also represents the Bull of God or the determination that is needed to reach one's goals.

 

Taurus is the symbol for the third eye or the "bull's eye". The primary goal of the sign of Taurus is illumination. It is through the function of the third eye center that light enters the consciousness and brings with it insight, vision and finally enlightenment.

 

Alice A. Bailey wrote in "Esoteric Astrology": 
"In this sign we have the following qualities or aspects in juxtaposition: 

1.     Desire-leading to aspiration upon the reversed wheel.

2.     Blindness-leading eventually to sight

3.     Darkness-leading to light

4.     Death-leading at last to liberation"

The Taurus full moon is the second of the Three Linked Festivals - Aries, Taurus and Gemini. This second festival is called the Wesak Festival in which a sacred ritual takes place in the Himalayan Mountains each year at the exact time of the Taurus full moon. Many great spiritual leaders gather in the Wesak Valley to experience the Buddha's decent down into the physical plane. It is said that the Buddha can be seen descending down into the valley, beginning as a small circle of light which grows in intensity until He is visible and sits on a rock shelf at the end of the valley. After a few minutes the Buddha returns to His high place by reversing the process that brought him down. Each year the Buddha conveys a fresh message to humanity. His message reveals the next evolutionary step for the human race.

The Keyword for Taurus is: "I see and when the Eye is opened, all is light".

THE FESTIVAL OF WESAK. THIS IS THE FESTIVAL OF THE BUDDHA, THE SPIRITUAL INTERMEDIARY BETWEEN THE HIGHEST SPIRITUAL CENTRE, SHAMBALLA, AND THE  HIERARCHY. THE BUDDHA IS THE EXPRESSION OF THE WISDOM OF GOD, THE EMBODIMENT OF LIGHT AND THE INDICATOR OF DIVINE PURPOSE. THIS FESTIVAL IS FIXED ANNUALLY IN RELATION TO THE FULL MOON OF MAY; IT IS THE GREAT EASTERN FESTIVAL.

-LUCIS TRUST

"There are three major spiritual Festivals which form the high point in the annual cycle. These are the Festival of Easter (at the Aries full moon), the Festival of Wesak (at the Taurus full moon), and the Festival of Goodwill (at the Gemini full moon). Through the steady, persistent meditation work of many individuals and groups in all parts of the world these Festivals are now achieving a subjective anchorage in the consciousness of mankind. They represent a basic divine purpose, which will begin to establish its objectives as the various religious institutions simultaneously acknowledge and observe, each in its own way, the unique annual approach of man to God and of God to man. This simultaneous recognition is basic to the structure of the new world religion:' - Lucis Trust Astrological
