The Full Moon in Taurus on 24 October brought forward the opportunity to listen to our own inner voice. Sometimes it was easy to listen, and sometimes not. The passage between the Full Moon and this New Moon gave us ample time to experience what it means to pay attention to the information generated by that inner voice. No matter what goes on in our outer world, the inner voice remains constant and True. If we believe that we cannot hear this voice, or even find it, this is a sign that we must take a few moments to be still. The inner voice is basic standard equipment that every person is born with. How we listen and learn to trust that voice throughout our lives is the journey of faith.
Again and yet again
I drop into clear,
Deep pools of self
To lay relaxed at last in eternal stillness
Intimate, familiar, home.

The New Moon on 8 October at 15 Libra gave us an unforgettable view into how we project our unconscious feelings onto people in our lives—the ones we interact with on an individual basis, and those that are part of our communities and governments. It was an astonishing perspective that only the Libra quality of consciousness can provide, that of the neutral observer. This passage was so helpful in helping us understand the lay of the land that we are moving through. From the observer’s perch we saw that we could float on the river of emotion instead of being engulfed by our feelings. We did this just by using the observer’s perch. We have now traversed to more solid, tangible ground, to the Taurus Full Moon. This is where we have the opportunity to touch base with our inner voice and see the connection between motivation, feeling, and emotion. Powerful stuff, as it is a chance to release some old feeling patterns that may have had us feeling stuck for quick some time now.
