Full Moon in Scorpio 27° @ 5:11pm EDT on 5/18/19
Namaste Seekers! Happy Full Moon in Scorpio ☽
I actually don’t know if ‘happy’ is exactly the word I would choose right now > maybe more like intense, agitating, or illuminating. It’s kind of like everything all at the same time! This is a highly revealing moon where we can really step out of the old & into the new and simultaneously be totally terrified to do so as we experience disorientation, confusion, & many emotions around letting go of the past.
With the Sun conjunct Mercury opposite the Moon, this is definitely a time where we are a having a surge of fresh new ideas, new ways of seeing ourselves, and the way that we think & perceive others to include the world around us (society). We are now wrapping up a cycle or purpose & stepping into a new purpose or cycle that we feel is ready to manifest! This is very exciting for those ready to evolve forward & surrender the old idea & any false stories. This is very confusing & disorienting for those who are not…
Remaining open is key here & not retreating into the past due to fear. This will allow us to access our innate talents, abilities, & higher will that allows us to access the next steps forward where we may have initially been feeling stuck, stagnant, & confused. The Sabian symbol for 27° Scorpio is encouraging us to reconnect with nature, natural law, & our intuition to access our inner & universal truths while we step away and out of all artificial, rigid, & inorganic realities. It’s all about seeing the falsities in the dogmatic & outmoded cultural ways.
The Sabian symbol is > “a military band marches noisily on through the city streets” resembling “the aggressive glorification of cultural values” along with “our aggressive, tense, domineering Western civilization that is indeed in opposition to the natural spontaneity & instinctive adjustment to nature of tribal societies. The keyword here is POMP” – Dane Rudhyar. Pomp meaning to be vain & boastful – it’s really a time to step into truth, honesty, & humility.
We have to be honest now & might not have a choice as our security & emotions are highly tested under this Scorpio full moon where we are challenged to work with balancing our material & emotional needs with our partners & society’s. This is everyone’s feelings & money on the line – very polarized in nature. The push & pull friction might lead you into some heated conversations with lots of tears, but ultimately open, honest conversation needs to be had to be sure you are in full alignment with your needs, values & desires as new shock waves enter your field.
Try not to get bogged down with all the heavy interactions with others & yourself even though it may feel as if people of the present & traumas of the past pull you down away from your highest Self. This too shall pass & balance will prevail as long as you take time to clear your energy field (meditate) & deeply understand the external demands around you (listen). Find your boundaries that make you feel safe & move forward fearlessly as surges of new ideas & inspirations pulse through you.
This can be a particularly challenging time for all Ayurvedic dosha types that are Kapha in nature as they may experience more difficulty letting go of the past & not letting their emotions dominate them. Also those with heavy earth & water signs in their natal Moon or Mercury might feel more troubled & confused as they allow the process to unfold organically without feeling emotionally beaten up along the way. Hang tight everyone because there is always light in the full moon! We all have much to look forward to <3
