THE HADRIAN's VILLA MOON
THE TAURUS FULL MOON
TONIGHT's Taurus Full Moon is the lunar phase which is called the HADRIAN's VILLA MOON in Antinous Moon Magic.
The Taurus Full Moon best represents home and comfort following the harvest. In the Northern Hemisphere autumnal storms rage and temperatures plummet.
Crops have been harvested, animals brought in from the meadows. It is time to come in from the cold.
Each lunar phase represents a Divine Spirit or Archetype. The Spirit of the Hadrian's Villa Moon is the Spirit of Home-Sweet-Home.
This is the Spirit which loves to build a comfy nest, a place to call one's own. Be it ever so humble, there's no place like home for this Spirit. It is the Spirit of the special place which is your home, whether it be a rented room or a sprawling mansion.
This Spirit invites you to step inside, close the door behind you, kick off your shoes and revel in being Home.
The key words during this lunar phase are: Home. Hearth. Comfort. Security. Stability. Nesting. Cocooning. Tradition.
Meditation and magical rituals performed during this lunar phase are well suited to delving into issues concerning your home base, the place or situation where you feel at home and most comfortable. This can involve a house or apartment. It can also be a city or a state of mind.
It can literally refer to your domicile in questions about material matters such as mortgages and repairs.
In a larger sense, the energies which are exalted during this lunar phase concern your spiritual center, your focal point of being.
