Full Moon Ritual with The Numinous

Join The Numinous on their monthly journey through orbit, as they host a Full Moon Ritual at our Soho pop-up on 11/1 — sign up here!

Each month, a Full Moon occurs at the time when the Moon is sitting directly opposite the Sun. At this moment, the full beam of the Sun’s rays are being broadcast across the whole surface of the Moon — which is why it appears as a perfect round object. 

In astrology, this position — or “aspect”— between the Sun and Moon is called an “Opposition” (obviously, haha), and it speaks to a very particular kind of cosmic energy influencing events here on Earth. A moment of heightened awareness, it is in the light of the Full Moon that this Opposition brings our own shadows into the light.

Meaning the parts of our selves and our lives we’ve either been neglecting, or deliberately avoiding looking at…

This lunar cycle, the Full Moon will occur at 1.22am ET on November 4 in the sign of Taurus— opposite the Sun in Scorpio. And what this Full Moon wants, is for us to get back into our bodies. 

You’ve probably heard how Scorpio is the “sexiest” sign, but this goes beyond the physical, speaking more to the ecstasy of merging with another being at soul level. Talk about intense! If your relationships have been feeling a little … darker … since the Sun hit up this part of the sky back on October 23, now you know why. We have officially entered the Twilight zone — Edward and Bella vibes all the way!

It’s no coincidence that Halloween falls during Scorpio season. Known as the sign of “death and rebirth,” Scorpio loves nothing better than to journey “beyond the veil” into the more numinous realms. But as thrilling as this Ghost Train can be, real life is still happening here on Earth.

And so here comes the Full Moon in Taurus to show us where we’ve been neglecting the physical. How we may have forgotten that it’s our human bodies that feel pleasure, that need nourishment, that want to dress up, and want to feast with friends, and that crave a tender touch. 

So this weekend, how can you give your body what it needs?

It’s the job of any Opposition, like this one between the Scorpio Sun and the Taurus Moon, to integrate the two conflicting energies of the planets in play. In this case, our primal urge (Sun) to transcend the physical and pursue our soul’s desires (Scorpio), and our emotional need (Moon) for deeply sensual physicality (Taurus).
