"Man never made any material as resilient as the human spirit." ~Bernard Williams
Today, May 10, 2017, we have a Full Moon in Scorpio. Scorpio is a water sign of the zodiac and some characteristics of this sign include determined, emotional, powerful, intuitive, loyal, passionate, obsessive, independent and dynamic, intense, generous, rebirth, secretive, depth and mystery. Full moons are a time of endings, completions and manifestations. Emotions and sensitivities run high during this time because the full moon will be in the sign of Scorpio which is a water sign and feels very deeply. Be honest with yourself and how you are feeling, especially in regards to relationships. Honor and acknowledge all the emotions you are feeling. Remember to be kind and gentle with yourself and do self-care and self-nurturing. Surrender, release and allow healing for your heart to create room for new beginnings to come into your life.
This Full moon in Scorpio will go to the depths and bring to light situations and relationships that are not in our highest good. We tend to hold on to old emotional negative patterns due to fear of letting go and moving into "unknown" territory. This "unknown" territory brings up vulnerabilities, fear and anxieties due to not having reassurance that things will work out in a positive manner and we are looking for some form of security. Insecurities, doubts and addictions (in any form) can contribute to holding onto situations and people that can become toxic for us. Our emotional feelings can be intense at times and also bring to light our shadow side. The full moon in Scorpio energy will bring things to light that are not in our highest good so it can fall away to be replaced with something or someone better, especially in terms of relationships. Some ways to reduce fears and feelings of vulnerability are connecting with Spirit through prayer, meditation, yoga, connecting with Mother Nature and getting emotional support, unconditional love and compassion from trusted family and friends. Be true to yourself. Align with your higher self which is one with Spirit and embrace your authenticity. As you take action steps and co-create with Spirit; your needs on all levels will be met. Have faith and trust knowing you are on on the right path and being divinely guided.
The card I was guided to pull comes from The Hidden Realms deck by Colette Baron-Reid. The card: "The Phoenix" (resurrection, surrender to change). This card and message is synchronistic with Full Moon in Scorpio; the phoenix is symbolic of death and rebirth. Nothing truly dies, endings are transformed into new beginnings. What do you need to let go of to bring more peace, balance and joy into your life? If their is something ending in your life, allow healing and know something better and in your highest good will come into your life. Letting go and surrendering does not mean you are giving up; it means you are allowing Spirit and the angelic realm to work through you to bring healing, peace, and new beginnings. When you rise above your ego and align with Spirit, you will see situations and your outer world from a higher spiritual perspective providing new clarity and insight trusting Spirit to lead the way. Embracing your personal power (which comes from love, not your ego) assists in minimizing fears and anxieties from you ego so you can stay focused on manifesting your true heart desires.
Let go and allow healing, surrender to change. You are undergoing a rebirth like the phoenix rising from the ashes, emerging stronger, transformed, wiser, more self confident and accepting of your authenticity. Remember who you truly are and use this full moon in scorpio energy to transform your life to bring in peace, joy, abundance and prosperity in all forms. You will feel less burdensome, lighter and more at peace with yourself. Have faith and trust, listen to your heart and trust your intuition. When you surrender and allow healing, rebirth is imminent. When you commit to co-creating with Spirit with your heart desires and passions, success will follow.
