Greetings Divine Spirit!

We are welcoming in a full moon in 27 degrees of Scorpio today, May 18th at 2:11PM PT/5:11PM ET. Scorpio’s themes are transformation, things that are hidden from view, power, and death/rebirth.

This full moon asks you to go DEEP within yourself and examine what is coming up for you. Are you willing to go into the depths of your soul, even into the mysterious shadow side and face what is there….waiting to be seen, acknowledged and accepted? What is asking to be transformed, released, or rebirthed?

Full moons ask us to pay attention to the sign the sun is in as well. The sun’s placement is always going to be opposite the moon’s on a full moon event, so we are experiencing the polarity of two opposing energies. We will want to create a harmonious balance between these two energies. Therefore, the Sun in Taurus will put an additional focus on our self worth, finances, security, our beautiful Earth, the things that we place value on, our self care and comforts, and the material and practical world. 

Mercury, Venus and Uranus join the sun in Taurus, bringing in even more emphasis on those earthy parts of our lives. Notice what is coming up for you in the above areas!

The sun trining Saturn gives you an extra boost of stability and grounding energy. This can assist in creating the necessary structures to confidently step forward and take guided action to create your desires. 

Mercury trines Pluto today, making it an excellent time to communicate deeply with others as needed. You may receive some powerful insights regarding your vision or purpose. 

Uranus and Venus are in alignment as well, assisting us to create new desires and the potential for change around our self worth, the things that we place value on, our finances and our relationships. If you have been putting up with “less than” in any or all these areas-this is the time to stand in your power and make some changes!

Being courageous and willing to do the inner work now will bring about TREMENDOUS healing. This frees you to step fully into your power to live in alignment with your authentic self.

We have been experiencing Pluto (the ruler of Scorpio) retrograde in Capricorn since Apr 24th. Pluto remains retro until Oct 3rd. Below are the themes of Pluto retrograde:

~Releasing the old, the outdated, the obsolete-old structures, attitudes, thinking. A big internal cleaning!

~We have deeper insight and are more aware of the motives of others

~A time for assessing where we are giving our power away and where we are feeling out of control with certain patterns in our personal lives

~Regeneration in the area of health

Be aware that during full moon periods, emotions tend to run high and you may feel more sensitive. Give yourself the needed time and space to feel and process your emotions-and know that others may need to do so as well.

Full moons celebrate the culmination of the things you have been working to achieve since the beginning of the cycle with the new moon 2 weeks ago. Be sure to celebrate ALL of your magical achievements, no matter how big or small!

This is also the time to look at what needs to be released in your life. After the Full Moon becomes exact, it is a PERFECT time to focus on releasing what no longer resonates with you or anything else that is holding you back from moving forward with your dreams and desires.

Reevaluate now and decide what you want to release from our life, whatever is no longer serving your highest good. You can journal about what you intend to release and then burn the paper in a fire safe container, releasing that energy to the Universe to be magically transformed.
Questions to reflect upon/journal upon:

  • Which areas of my life are overdue for transformation?
  • Am I stuck in a pattern that no longer serves me?
  • Have I been suppressing my true feelings about a situation in my life?

I would love to hear how the Scorpio Full Moon is impacting YOU! I invite you to leave a comment about what insights are coming up for you. Enjoy this powerful time! <3
