The Full Moon is a time for letting go and releasing that which doesn’t serve our highest good. Taurus is a sensual, earthy sign centring on physical and financial resources, stability and security, and our self esteem and values. Scorpio is a watery, emotional sign highlighting deep intensity and feelings of control and power.
Moon conjunct Uranus:
The Moon will conjunct Uranus, bringing sudden and unexpected change and disruption to the emotional consistency and grounding the Taurus Moon usually enjoys; after all she is in the sign of her Exaltation. Moods change easily, feelings of rebellion may surface, and the need for emotional independence and space may arise.
Venus Retrograde conjunct Sun:
The ruler of this Full Moon, Venus, continues her backward motion through her sign of Detriment, Scorpio, where she does not feel at home. Issues and feelings around jealousy, manipulation, deep emotional issues from the past and past lovers may be highlighted as she joins the Sun.

The Full Moon also squares the Nodal axis at 1 degree of the other two Fixed signs of Leo and Aquarius. This creates a Fixed Grand Cross and a lot of tension where perseverence, tenacity and determination have been continuing too long and which could explode.
This Full Moon illuminates finding balance regarding what we have accumulated, value and need to keep (Taurus), and what we need to release (Scorpio). At a broader level we can ask how much we value ourselves and what we are willing to let go of.
