The Full Moon in Taurus will occur at 8:51 p.m. (GMT+7) and it'll be the closest Supermoon ever to reach the Earth in 68 years. Opposing this month's star sign, Scorpio, the Full Moon in Taurus' characteristics contradicts everything Scorpio upholds. If a Scorpion love is known to thrive on the intense love, like the Romeo and Juliet kind, the Full Moon in Taurus embodies Dev and Rachel's (Master of None) comfortable companionship that cherishes each other's quirks and kinks instead. It is a reminder that things can go wrong anytime, whether you're ready or not. So why don't we appreciate what we have instead? As a fixed Earth sign, Taurus reminds us to stay grounded, because nothing we have is permanent. It is also a sign of gratitude and contentment, due to their love of the simple things in life.
To understand how Full Moon in Taurus influences your love life, we'll have to consider other aspects that happen around it. This week, Venus, the Taurus' ruler, is in Capricorn forming a sextile aspect with Neptune Retrograde, while getting cozy with Pluto in Capricorn in a conjunction aspect. Meanwhile, Pluto and Venus are in a square aspect with Jupiter in Libra. To strengthen your relationship, particularly this week, it requires trust from both parties.
The influence by Neptune Retrograde will bring back some memories from the past, not to mention a disruption from the wheel of fortune by Jupiter in Libra. An imbalance of power is most likely to happen in a dormant relationship, causing one person to feel less understood by the other. But it doesn’t have to happen if you communicate your feelings thoroughly. Jupiter in Libra is in a sextile aspect with Saturn and Mercury in Sagittarius, indicating that communication and understanding are the keys to moving forward. You may not agree with one another all the time, but that's what love is. To love is to accept and work with the differences between you and the one you love. It will not be easy if a long-term commitment is what you're aiming.
With Full Moon in Taurus as the prominent influence this week, try going for a simple date to bring back the spark. If your date nights have always been fancy, try low-key dates like spending the night for a Harry Potter re-run, or cooking four types of pasta for two. If you've been dating for years that each date nights are spent doing the things that I have advised above, (yup, I'm talking about my relationship too), try to appreciate each other's companionship. Give them a massage if they help you do the laundry or wash the dishes if they cook you a pancake for breakfast #couplegoals. Like I said, things can go wrong anytime, so enjoy it while it lasts.
What about singles? Look around you. If long-term love is what you're looking for, find the one that can complete your puzzle. A great fit for the hole in your heart and most importantly, someone who can deal with your post-election rants and morning sluggishness. Find someone who can be on your team, who knows how you like your coffee and eggs. That someone could have been on your radar, but you were too busy trying to find your prince charming to notice them.
During this lunation, it's important to understand that there is no perfect recipe for a perfect relationship. Perfection is in the eyes of the beholder, and love and lust themselves are not enough to make it happen. Unless both parties are keen to work on the differences and appreciating each other's companionship, the perfect relationship will constantly seem like a distant dream.
Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 21)
Nine of Disks - Gain
Have you ever wished like you can repeat something from the past? Yeah, me too. Those times when you were so happy and so in love were usually nothing but a distant memory. Good thing for you, some fragments of the happy memories are going to come back to you this week.
In a Relationship: You will remember what made you feel happy with them the first place and you will make it your goal to return to that state. If your relationship has been caught up in arguments, now is the perfect time to sort things out.
Single: You'll find a way to contact someone from your past who may have captured your heart, but did not have enough time to take a chance with you. Do you have anyone in mind recently?

Sagittarius (Nov 22 - Dec 21)
Knight of Cups
You are not a rebound or a side piece, Sagittarius. If anyone ever told you that you are not worth their time, fuck them. You deserve to love and be loved just like everyone else. Quit being someone's doormat and find someone who would be there with you through thick and thin. If you can’t, find a way to work your issue with your loved one.
Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 19)
Temptations exist everywhere you go, Capricorn. It won't be easy to shake the indecent thoughts off. I get it. But whatever you do, understand that everything has its consequences. A temptation is like a pack of Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans. If you decide to do it, you may end up with either vomit or candy floss flavored beans. It's your call.
Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 18)
Four of Wands - Completion
Something smells fishy to you, and you’re on your way to get to the bottom of it. Since you can't shoot the question straight to your significant other, you're planning to catch them from the back door. Don't do it. Let this be an opportunity for an honest conversation with each other. Because what you have can either be a hunch or a false alarm.
Pisces (Feb 19 - Mar 20)
Six of Disks - Success
You shouldn't conceal your sadness or your weakness just because you want to make your loved one happy. Love doesn't work that way, Pisces. Be honest if certain things are making you feel uncomfortable, or if you feel like you can't always be there for them. It's okay to take a break to take care of yourself. Please remember to love yourself first, ok?
Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 19)
Rather than imagining what would happen if you have to live without your loved one, why don't you cherish every moment you have with them instead? Someday you'll have to say goodbye to them, I understand. But it's not today, and hopefully not tomorrow. Treat them right, Aries, with such love and tenderness, to take your mind off the worst case scenario.
Taurus (Apr 20 - May 20)
Your loved one has been giving you mixed signals, and you're not sure how to make of it. "So, do they love me, do they love me not?" you ask yourself. Honey, I can't answer this for you. Let's check what your intuition tells you. If it's a no, don't waste your time anymore. But if it's a yes, let's get on board because love doesn't wait for someone who flip-flops.
Gemini (May 21 - Jun 20)
Eight of Cups - Indolence
Take a long break, Gemini. Because you have been spending more time and energy for someone else than for yourself. You need to recharge too! If you're recently single, please don't find a rebound yet. If you're in a relationship, take some time to take off your shoes and feel the sand under your feet. Relax, and put yourself first before everyone else.
Cancer (Jun 21 - Jul 22)
Prince of Wands
Although it's tempting to know what your loved one thinks about you, whether you're their priority, for example, it still doesn't contribute anything to your relationship. Even if you finally know the answer, then what? If they still come when you call, that still proves how much they love you. Don't worry too much, Cancer. Your relationship is still going a-ok.
Leo (Jul 23 - Aug 22)
If you're head over heels for someone who doesn't appreciate you, stop this at once. Constructive criticism is one thing. But asking you to change into someone else is another level. Dearest Leo, you are amazing as fuck. You don't need to tame yourself for someone else. You deserve someone who can understand you inside and out, believe me.
Virgo (Aug 23 - Sep 22)
Five of Disks - Worry
Romance is the least of your concern right now since you're focusing your energy on your career and your study. Single Virgos are busy with other activities that take their mind off their love life while coupling Virgos are in a stable state that requires not much improvement. Nevertheless, enjoy this stagnant period before some random planet decides to shake things up!
Libra (Sep 23 - Oct 22)
Knight of Disks
You used to have a bright future with your loved one in your imagination, but now you're not so sure anymore. Things haven't been working accordingly, and now you're wondering if they're worth the fight. Don't worry, dear Libra, just enjoy the limited time you have with them. The future is still far ahead. Don’t over think things, okay?
