This FULL MOON in TAURUS is closer than any Full Moon since 1948 and until 2034. It will be extra large, especially when looming over the eastern or western horizon, rising or setting.

This Full Flower Moon will certainly dispel any boredom and offer some relief from a pace that’s been slow like mud (or sludge)? The SUN just entered GEMINI, a sign is known for its short tolerance for the same old/same old. It’s time to pick up the tempo and change up activities.
