Taurus full moon rituals to try

1. Embrace the process

Put your inner rebel in the time-out chair! As a fixed earth sign, Taurus reveals the ease that sound structures can provide. Rather than reinvent the wheel, learn about the physics that keep the wheel in motion. The (ahem) mechanical Bull loves a blueprint, rule and master plan—and the Taurus full moon reminds us of the power of process.

Where has your life become too complex? Bring it back to basics. By stabilizing your foundation, you’ll soon again soar. If you’re advancing toward a major goal, the Taurus full moon can help you gain laser-focused guidance about next steps. Don’t stop there! Plug those plans into project management software like Trello or Asana to keep your thoughts—and your team—organized.

2. Treat yourself to something beautiful 

Ruled by sensual Venus, Taurus adores beautiful things—and isn’t afraid to spend top dollar for them, as long as they are classic, timeless and made with the utmost precision. It’s no surprise that the classic House of Versace has been kept alive by Taurus Donatella for decades since her (Sagittarius) brother Gianni’s death. So: What keeps popping up on your Pinterest board? If you’ve been reading the reviews and stalking the sales, the Taurus full moon green-lights a luxury purchase.

Top-quality, impeccably produced goods aren’t just an indulgence. If they have a practical use and a long lifespan, they’re an investment, dammit. That classic wool-cashmere cape coat or hand-tooled leather tote may very well be coming home with you. While you’re at it, give your body the same royal treatment. Taurus rules the neck and shoulders, so maybe book a session to have a skilled bodyworker release the knots. Or get into the earthiness for your Taurus full moon ritual and head to the spa for a mud bath or hot stone massage.

3. Embrace your analog roots

There’s grace to be found in the rhythm and flow of everyday life. And this back-to-nature full moon challenges us to embrace our analog roots. Here’s a challenge: Try moving through a couple of your daily rituals without the machines you rely on for comfort and convenience:

  • Hand a dish towel to your S.O. and have a real conversation while you’re drying plates.
  • Sweep the floor and unpack groceries slowly and mindfully, so these tasks become a meditation.
  • Hang your clothes to dry rather than a tumble in a dryer which saves hundreds of dollars in energy bills and—more importantly—keeps 1,000 pounds of carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere. That makes a difference in a warming world, something this earthy full moon supports wholeheartedly.

4. Find your voice

Taurus rules the throat (and the throat chakra), and you’re likely to feel compelled to speak your truth without holding back during this full moon. Just make sure you’re not riding that bullish energy while the bronco is still bucking. Use your voice in constructive ways—to speak up for your values and ethics, which are ruled by the zodiac’s second sign.

Or use your voice creatively, for things like singing or podcasting. Yogic chanting can tune up your throat chakra while creating a collective healing energy that’s greater than any one voice in the room. Look for a Kirtan (call-and-response chanting) class to elevate your vibration. It’s no surprise that legendary vocalists like Stevie Wonder and Adele were born under this Sun sign.

On a purely physical note, have you been giving your vocal cords love they need? Hydration is essential for keeping them healthy, so a simple Taurus full moon ritual is to drink lots more water and less dehydrating substances like coffee and alcohol. Since heaters can be drying this time of year, plug in a humidifier to maintain proper moisture balance.

5. Plant a tree

Planting a billion trees can help save the Earth from climate change and biodiversity loss, according to The Nature Conservancy, which has taken on the lofty goal. If you don’t have space to plant a tree, you could check with the local government where you live to plant or donate to a tree planting program; many municipalities have them to enrich and beautify public spaces. Or you could simply find a tree in a park or in nature and post a photo of yourself hugging it on your Instagram to increase awareness.

Trees are critical to life on earth and they provide oxygen, shade, and medicine—not to mention absorbing greenhouse gasses to slow down global warming. Taurus rules rootedness. This is a great time to plant a few trees in the soil (and in your feeds), even if you reside in a concrete jungle.

6. Mind your green

How friendly is your budget? While Taurus is sensual, it’s also sensible, and needs plenty of security in order to relax. The Taurus full moon illuminates your spending and savings plans…or lack thereof.

Impulse shopping can be a symptom of deprivation. This isn’t about tightening your belt so much that you feel constricted. But it is an important time for tracking where all your hard-earned dollars flow. Put a budgeting app on your phone or challenge yourself to pay for every purchase with cash for a week as your Taurus full moon ritual. Getting powerful related to money leaving your hands can create a mindful relationship to your expenses—and your earnings!

7. Relax and rejuvenate with this Taurus full moon ritual (step-by-step instructions!)

You’re getting verrry sleepy…Sensual Taurus is the sign of decadent comfort and deep relaxation. For this Taurus full moon ritual, celebrate the “somatic process,” as our dream-expert/Taurus moon friend, Stephanie Gailing, says. Meaning: How can you bring more luxuriating to your lounging so that you sleep like a baby?

What you’ll need for this Taurus full moon ritual

  • You don’t need to blow the bank redoing your bedroom. Perhaps you simply replace your pillows (if they’re older than three years) or give them a spin in the washing machine—this won’t destroy them, something many people don’t realize.
  • If your sheets are becoming scratchy or threadbare (or are just too basic!) the tactile Taurus full moon blows the whistle here. Jersey sheets or bamboo fabrics are affordable and don’t have to be the highest thread count to feel great.
  • Sensual Taurus loves ambient lighting and aromatherapy, too. Try a dimmer switch for your lamps and make sure all your digital devices are on the Night Shift setting (the blue-toned light of your device can be detrimental to your sleep!)
  • Do a clean sweep of any computer equipment or work that clutters your sleep area. If you live in a studio apartment, try a Shoji-style screen to block this, so you aren’t worrying about that unfinished report when you’re trying to get some shuteye.
  • Set a scented candle by your nightstand or an essential oil diffuser so you don’t have to worry about falling asleep with a flame. Inhaling lavender steam or another soothing scent can make for sweet slumber.

Once your nest is feathered, head to bed an hour or so earlier than you typically do. Read a book or listen to an audiobook or a guided meditation. You might even set up a portable speaker on your nightstand so you can play soothing sounds while you drift off (kind of like a personal spa!)

If you have a significant other, invite them to hang out with you in bed. You could read to each other or enjoy a cup of tea together—or hey, celebrate your newly minted boudoir with some lovin’!

Other, simple Taurus full moon ritual ideas to try

  • Visit a perfume counter or try a natural perfume to find a signature fall blend
  • Switch to ethical, organic or cruelty-free lines for makeup, skincare and home cleaning products
  • Pamper yourself with an exfoliating facial or give yourself a clay or mud mask at home
  • Bring Taurus’s earthy energy indoors during the cooler weather months with houseplants
  • Treat yourself to a new, cozy bathrobe or fluffy towels
