Full Moon in Scorpio May 18th, 2019 2:11 pm PDT


"Intuitively it is seen that, for the deepest emotional attachments, vulnerability must be reciprocated; so, in a strange way Scorpio needs to be simultaneously dependent, dependable and in control. These are mutually inconsistent states for most people, yet somehow it is made possible – and how this works is the mystery of the sign. "*

Though Earth’s Moon is no star, it reflects the brightest light we can see in the night sky. Its phases are a part of human consciousness, and its movements affect systems on earth and sea. When we align our activities to the Moon’s cycles we find a greater connection to both our bodies and intuitive wisdom.

A full Moon brings to fulfillment energies that express themselves through the sign it inhabits during its peak.

This Lunation, in Scorpio highlights things that are deep, that may be hidden and that relate to emotional attachments, intuitive perceptions, resources and secrets. This water sign of fixed modality (stable and focused expression) is always “digging in the dirt” to find the essential core of things as well as allowing for energy to be transformed through a death and re-birth cycle.

In nature things are always cycling through this process. we know we have to allow many elements of our life to die, metaphorically or literally and be re-born.

Mercury is also in Taurus and opposing the Moon- It’s possible that you will feel the need to investigate or analyze circumstances or situations in your life now. You can find insight and make connections that seem like puzzle pieces all falling together.

Both Sun, the active conscious self and Moon the instinctive natural self, are connected by Aspect to Pluto which also disposits (rules) the Moon. This brings even GREATER importance to getting to the heart or core of a situation which may be oppressing or stagnating- in our relationships, our psyches and overall life.

Things we suppress still grow and can then become oppressive.

The Key is to let the Scorpio waters flow. Get to the heart of darkness if need be to do so.

If you have Planets or your Ascendant in late degree Scorpio, Taurus, Aquarius or Leo, this will be a very impactful week. Have faith in your metamorphosis and the intelligence of the Universe to help!

The powerful magick at work in this Moon can assist us in creating lasting and sustainable healing and change. Try a small or large ritual this week to channel the lunations ability to transform stagnant aspects of your life!

Here is a suggestion on meeting and integrating your shadow self that is appropriate to do anytime from

Shadow Self Visualization:

This visualization requires you to be in a calm, open, accepting frame of mind. Our shadow selves are the forgotten, shunned, repressed parts of ourselves that we hide away from the light of the world.

I recommend that you only do this visualization if you are ready to make peace with the darkness within you. Please don’t force anything.

When you are ready, sit in a silent space and relax. Allow your mind to empty and focus on your breathing. When you are ready, visualize a doorway, this doorway will lead you back to your grounded self. With each breath allow yourself to travel through the doorway, deeper and deeper into your mind. As you travel deeper and deeper into your mind, call softly to your Shadow. Be gentle and encouraging. You may like to say for instance, “Shadow, I’m here to meet you, I’m here to accept you, come out and reveal yourself.” Eventually, you will sense your Shadow and possibly even see it. What does he/she/it look like? Is your Shadow shy, threatened, lonely, or maybe even hostile? Perhaps it is large, small, fat, skinny, or not even human? Ensure that you remain open and loving: this is a neglected part of yourself after all. When your Shadow is comfortable enough with you, invite it into an embrace. Send it unconditional love. When you are done, look up. See the doorway glowing in the distant. Grab the rope that is dangling right in front of you and say goodbye. Climb up the rope towards the doorway and step through. Your visualization is complete.

May the Fire of Inspiration be yours!
