Full Moon in Scorpio – May 10, 2017
Well, my loves, here is a moon to reckon with!
Scorpio leads into some dark, heady waters, where we can either drown or swim and come out reborn.
I’m not saying any of this lightly, as this powerful moon is here to teach about life, death, re-birth, magic and the synergy of our sexual natures. She is intense, the Queen of the occult – that which is hidden.
While I usually work with the moon as an equal, this month I will respectfully bow to her and offer my submission to her wisdom and strength.
Have you been feeling a strain in the back of your head, or your neck and shoulders in general, a heaviness of mood and encountering obstacles? These manifestations of the pressure preceding this moon are temporary and can be navigated by connecting to friends and loved ones who are light-bearers and optimists.
Do drink of Scorpio Moon’s sensual darkness and ponder what lessons she has under her moody cloak.
Scorpio rules the Underworld, mystery, and is ruled herself by Pluto, a very irregular and puzzling planet.
Scorpio would rather sting itself to death than yield to a predator. Hmmm, sounds oddly familiar, what with this being my sign and several planets also in Scorpio. She prefers to control her own destiny, keeping secrets and many of her vulnerabilities under wraps. She is Kali, a protective mother figure, hope, creation and destruction all wrapped up in one.
We can learn and draw from this Scorpio Moon, and make particular magic for realizing our dreams. The moon appears full when it is on the far side of the earth, and it is when we release the intentions we set under the New Moon.
Using tools that align with the full moon phase and Scorpio, such as black and white candles, perhaps a snake skin you have found, a moonstone crystal, a drum for evoking the energy of the Underworld, we can tap into why we may feel full of emotion at this time. Scorpio will highlight the unknown within us, what is hidden?
In a state of gratitude and wonder, write down a list of what you would like to discover about yourself and some things that perhaps you have kept secret, and would like to explore. Scorpio moon will challenge you to be your most authentic self! Is there something you would like do that will rock your world and you have been afraid to begin? This is the time for opening to new energy!
Pleasure, courage, vulnerability, surprise, emotions…all on the table with Scorpio Full Moon!
Kali is an exacting mistress, demanding your attention. Be kind to yourself, while you swim in the dark river of your own mystery. Shed your old skin and delight in your newness.
There is no going back with this moon, we are either stepping into the new or stagnating in the old. The choice is ours. Be brave, my loves, and with the dark goddess at your side, embark on a new adventure!
Her hips are swaying, she is dancing with all that breaks convention and she invites you to join her.
