Tonight and last night is that notorious Scorpio Full Moon, and man haven’t we all been feeling it the last few days? Intense, fingernails on a chalkboard and all the emotional rollercoasters we can handle. No, it’s not always pleasant to deal with heavy emotions, that is for sure. This Scorpio moon, 8th house is especially intense due to it being in opposition to the Sun, Mercury and Uranus stellium in Taurus, 2nd house.
Real quick about Scorpio & Taurus:
*Scorpio energy has to do with things like desire, sex, power, death, transformation, attachment, hidden realms and information just to name some.
*Taurus energy has to do with things like what we value, beauty, money, art, comfort, nourishment, building, stability to name some.
Taurus wants things to be smooth, pleasurable, stable, solid ground to stand on. Scorpio, can’t help but to penetrate through the shiny surfaces, into the messy, deep parts of everything. The good, the bad, the ugly. Scorpio can handle it easier than most too… and thrive in it. Taurus can handle it as well but this energy prefers not to dwell there. Both energies have their value and place. Though when energies are in opposition, especially during a full moon, this indicates, that the value really lies in integrating the two. Finding how these two seemingly opposing powers can find common ground and co-exist and become even stronger, more peaceful, more courageous, more stable, more fulfilled and comfortable with what exists in the ever changing landscape of Life.
Scorpio deals with all the hidden things that drive our world, but that no one wants to talk candidly about. Intrinsically we know, deep down, these things are sacred and powerful. These things are the undercurrents of the Universe. The forces, the portals of initiation in some respects. It is essential for Scorpio to always keep moving, changing, transforming with the ebbs and flow of consciousness, otherwise the energy can get tangled in the web and create its own attachments and crystallize fear.
Though these two (Scorpio/Taurus) may seem like they don’t make sense linked together, really it makes all the sense, because nothing physical would exist if it wasn’t for all the energetics that come out of the void first. The earthly things of Taurus are manifestations of these desires, these unseen energies that seek true expression, at work behind the scenes. They constantly respond, dance, morph with the vibrations that run through space, to accommodate or to transmute, to bear fruit for us to enjoy, work with and amplify for the Earthly realm. Taurus energy values cultivating and enjoying the harvest of these efforts. But if Taurus gets too comfortable, it fears changes, becomes heavy and then stagnates.
One of the great things about this energy is that it's supportive of magical rituals, great sex, art. Or all those things combined if that’s your wish… let me say about the art: Magical art, controversial art, deeply emotional art, healing art, beautiful, symmetrical art… the list goes on…whatever flows! Woohoo! 🙌😍
The full Moon in Scorpio, opposing the Taurus Sun is giving us a chance to flow with the changes, to detach from the cords that hold us in fear, addictions, toxic energy, unhealthy relationships, egoic games, and emotional prisons, so as to connect to what is real, what is present, what we value. To nourish ourselves. So, if diving deep is not where any of us feel we should go during this time, that’s ok too. Take time to nurture yourself. Surround yourself with what makes you feel safe, nurtured, creative, centered, joyful and solid. Whatever feels right.
With that being said, let’s explore a little more:
With the Sun, Mercury, Uranus in 2nd house right now, we are given an opportunity to shine the light on our deepest desires, fears, pain and even power and how they relate to what we value. Our sense of identity and values are being extremely challenged through interactions with others. How we communicate what it is we are feeling, seeing, valuing and fearing is illuminating not only our light but our shadows, not only to ourselves as a learning experience, but to the ones we are interacting with as well. What are we creating around us? Yes, it is a great time for shadow work. A great time for learning and applying what we learn!
Mars is in Aquarius. This energy talks a lot about progressive goals in evolving communities with new inventions, that ideally help us all, equally. Having the drive and the vision to come up with innovative ways to improve life. It is fertile ground for visions of the future. So that can be very positive! But again, creation is also an act of destruction first. With Mars in Aquarius, the stage and mood has been set in our communities, especially the interweb (Aquarius domain). For some time, this has increased the fuel in passion, anger, aggression. Lots of people are sharing their opinions, forcefully. As more time passes, it is getting heavier and heavier, hotter and hotter under the collar. Mars in Aquarius also denotes believing that our point of view is the best option and people should follow that. Believe it or not, I feel like us as a collective organic network is actually truly trying to make sense of life to find ways to cope and to express ideas to bring order. Like a savage brainstorm in a boardroom (where many take sides and bump heads with each other… oh the paradox!) Now these famous words come to mind: “Can’t we all just get along?” The fact that Mars is squaring the Moon makes it super intense and is reaching unbearable crescendos for some of us. It will ease up for most of us after the full moon.
In the meantime, if we feel called, we can ask:
What are our triggers? Why are they our triggers? Like really, why? Beyond the surface answer, digging deeper, to the first time we were triggered by something similar… maybe even as far back as our childhood…when was the first time we felt that feeling of being triggered by that similar thing? These things of the past matter, because they shape who we are and how we interact in the world.
Some people like to say, just focus on having a positive perspective and the Universe will deliver it to you. I agree. But if we don’t face what is blinding us, hurting us first, then we wont be able to see and appreciate when the gifts the Universe delivers to us what we ask for.
How we handle problems and crises can show us who we truly are at this stage of our lives. Though when we see something in ourselves that may be seem negative and scary, it is really essential for the best to sort it out. Because that which is hidden is can be the most destructive force in our life. We don’t know what we don’t know, until it is shown to us.
As an example: ‘How does my scowl or smile change my face?’ Look in a mirror. Our reflection, opposite of us, outside of us but also within us. Now we have a point of reference. Now we can integrate our perception with a contrast reference. Yes this is dualistic at first, but becomes unification if we accept and honor our shadows (and other people’s shadows), find the useful aspects of it, and integrate it so it works with us rather than against us. Can we take this time to look in the mirror to our perceived unsavory personality traits and views of the world? Can we find power in facing what it is that has got us so agitated and hyped up?
Though the upheaval is painful at first, there are rewards in digging deep within ourselves and the projections we place on others (and vice versa) It allows us to get the root of who we are and from there can create a more stable foundation, self-built with what we truly value and are willing to work for, to grow and then enjoy our abundance. If we accept it, have compassion for it, it frees us to feel true soul (not egoic) joy, because we have freed ourselves from unknown prisons that we had trapped ourselves in and then liberates us to a broader view of the world and a fuller expression of who we are.. and who we are is beautiful. No matter what. We are beautiful, creative, messy, living works of art, in progress.
With that being said, I got the card of Aura: Observation. To me, this card speaks of how we observe. What are we observing? About ourselves? Others? Our world? When we are observing, what emotional state are we in? Are we feeling at ease or discomfort? How does this change our perspective? I am getting the message that now is a time to pull back and practice more observation. This will strengthen our well-being and our aura. It will also help us to find peace from the madness everyone is feeling. There are many things we all still don’t know, but we must be receptive to what comes when we take the time to allow without judgement. Easier said than done, but so important! I’m always advocating meditation in nature (if possible), even if its just on a little patch of grass is good. Get grounded, be still, connect.
Thanks for sharing in my projection here. Getting it all out in writing helps very much, and I am happy it can help a few other people as well. I feel what you feel, you feel what I feel. 💖 So with that being said, one of my full moon intentions is to detach from Facebook for awhile, starting tonight. Although there are a lot of positive, great things and people to interact with, It feels like its becoming more toxic as the days pass and I just rather not engage anymore. I don’t want to be a part of the problem. Its easy to be swept us in the negativity (which I admit I have a few times) and it just isn’t healthy for me… for a lot of people.
I asked partner a few days ago if he was ever going to return to Facebook and he said, 'No.' I asked him, 'Why?' and he said, 'Because I wish better for myself, and the world'. Lol... wise man.
Anyway, before my ritual of release tonight, I will be spending the majority of the day drumming and lying on grass, feeling and savoring the sensations of the elements, grounding in and coming back to my zero point. That is my sacred self-care practice AKA how I keep my sanity! 🤣 Regardless, no matter what happens, even throughout all these wild times, I trust in the Loving, Divine plan of the Universe.🌈💖🕉⚛️ Blessings.
