Last night- Sunday 4/29 as of 8:58 PM, we had a powerful Full Moon in the sign of Scorpio.
This Lunar Cycle kicks off the week, and the month of May, with powerful energy that we are all feeling.
Although emotional, there is plenty of magic with this Full Moon.
A Full Moon happens when the Sun is opposite the Moon.
This highlights the polarities (opposing forces) in our lives.
These polarities are of an emotional, physical and spiritual nature. It can be one area or all three, and each Full Moon will feel different based on the sign and planetary aspects surrounding the Moon.
Awareness and emotion reach their peak and are heightened around Full Moons. This is why we feel more edgy and anxious around these times, sometimes not even being able to sleep.
This Moon is particularly sensitive, allowing us to dig deep into our own soul, our own psyche to make sense of it all.
This Full Moon in Scorpio is opposite the Sun in Taurus.
This is one of the most potent combinations, and personally, one of my favorites.
Keep in mind that both Taurus and Scorpio are fixed signs, meaning focused and determined, stubborn and proud, truth seeking above all else.
We have a nice Water (Scorpio) and Earth (Taurus), polarity which is going to assist in seeing the big picture, like it or not.
This is a very transformative Moon, with strong emotions attached. This is very positive although it feels quite heavy.
In fact, this is one of the best Full Moons of the year! We have some very supportive energy alongside this Moon cycle with Saturn, Jupiter and Neptune.
Saturn is asking all of us to evaluate where we are, who we are and what we are doing, where we are headed.
Saturn makes sure that no stone is left unturned, and if it is, well, then you must go back and get it right to not have to repeat the lesson under a more difficult circumstance.
Saturn is referred to as ‘The Taskmaster’ and more importantly, ‘Lord Karma’ for a reason!
Jupiter gives us a dose of optimism with this Moon, asking us to grow and to not be afraid to shine.
Share your gifts with the world, no matter what. When you do this, abundance will be yours emotionally and spiritually.
Neptune dissolves the illusions we have and right now, we need that under this Scorpio Moon.
Scorpio likes to hide from others while uncovering the truth, and Neptune truly wants to get that truth out, although reading between the lines is needed. Be careful to not be deceived, but also, do not be paranoid.
Bottom line is that we are supposed to feel a bit stuck in specific areas in order to do things differently for more efficient results.
With Saturn, when you do this work, you will receive a nice reward from the universe. Think about this. You will be rewarded for feeling crappy. 😉
This is an especially impactful Moon for all of the Fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius). Fixed meaning- stable , firm and dependable. These signs will feel this Full Moon energy the most.
Scorpio rules the eighth (8th) house in astrology, and is all about death and rebirth. Financial concerns and issues with inheritances are always present with Scorpio energy as well.
Think about the Tarot Card that represents Scorpio- Number Thirteen (13) Death
Scorpio asks us to die a thousand times, in every way except physically. This is the card and sign of dying and being reborn -metaphorically.
Rising from the ashes, transforming. The old way must go to make way for the new.
Scorpio wants to take us to the depths of the truth, to explore what is underneath the surface. Then and only then, can you transform- inside and out.
It is so very important to protect your energy. Spend time with those who uplift you, not deplete you. Find the joy in doing things you love, not doing things out of obligation.
Take care of your health as lately, a lot of people are having chest discomfort and stomach issues. This is related to the heart chakra and all of the feeling that is happening lately. You cannot deny we all have some emotional ‘gunk’ coming up to the surface to be cleared and ultimately, healed.
Ever hear how emergency rooms get packed during Full Moons?! Everything peaks and surges during Full Moons, which is why!
*Obviously, be sure to rule out any medical condition first before assuming what you may be experiencing is strictly emotional.
Stomach issues are also happening due to the Solar Plexus which is the area that is responsible for our personal power, our self-esteem and our confidence.
Remember: if you are giving your power away and not honoring your soul, this area may be affected as well.
I will share with you that when I give too much energy, my stomach always suffers and has been this way since childhood. I sometimes even throw-up from energy overload, no joke.
*Again, barring you do not have a medical condition, this is likely the case, that your Solar Plexus is a bit ‘clogged’.
You may just need a Reiki Session to help you to move that energy along and get you going.
Keep in mind that Full Moons are all about release.
What are you holding on to that no longer serves a purpose to your spiritual growth? Where can you stand to make some effort in your life? What have you been avoiding? Are you stuffing your emotion(s) away?
It is time to let go, surrender, hand it over to the universe.
Move forward with peace in your heart and trust that you are where you need to be in this very moment, challenges and all.
Instead of asking ‘why me’, replace that with ‘ok what is this trying to teach me’. Never an easy thing to do and often painful, but this will help soften the harshness of what you may be experiencing.
