Once again the Sun and the Moon are in opposite sides of the zodiac; creating a ripe, luminous, full moon in Scorpio climaxing on Friday April 22nd at 1:25am EST.
This full moon is making Earth Day 2016 a very special one. In order to fully understand the energy of this Full Moon let us look at the Taurus (where the sun is) and Scorpio (where the moon is) dynamic.
Taurus rules the Earth. It’s what we see, understand and perceive. It’s realistic, it’s practical and it’s seemingly “real”. To sum it up it’s external reality. Scorpio on the other hand is the unseen; it’s behind the veil, it’s the hidden or subconscious emotions within ourselves. It’s just as “real” as Taurus however it is not necessarily tangible.
The best way to harness the energy is to find a balance between the seen and the unseen. To honor external reality; but also trust that a lot is going on behind the scenes. That in fact our true potential comes from understanding that our feelings/emotions/vibration are creating external reality.
Now a full moon is a time when our subconscious, or hidden parts of ourselves are illuminated and brought to the light. This is happening so we can expand our awareness. We are basically given a flashlight to shine on old patterns, beliefs or self sabotaging tendencies.
The dark is coming to the light through each of us.
So if triggers come up over the course of this week; welcome them. Understand that they are happening in order to expand your awareness and perceptions in order to regain your power from the shadows.
Scorpio energy which can be intense, and often leaves us in the unknown. It’s okay to feel afraid, it’s okay to feel vulnerable and it’s recommended you let go. As we surrender and release there may be grief, anger, jealousy and all sorts of raw emotions.
At it’s core Scorpio is transformation. Don’t allow reality to boggle you down because it’s transforming. We are in the midst of Mars retrograde and soon Mercury will be joining; meaning there are many shifts on the horizon.
Take a deep breath Know that the Earth has got you. She is carrying you, supporting you and literally providing you with life (without trees how would we breath?). No matter how tumultuous this full moon may feel remember that the Earth loves you unconditionally.
Connect to this love. Whether that looks like a meditation, communing with nature or even just a deep breath. Make connecting to the planet a priority and you will not regret it.
In order to really amplify the light on Earth join One Billion Acts of Kindness for Mother Earth. Earth does so much for each of us. By supporting her you will open yourselves up to love, kindness and light.
This full moon centre in the Earth’s support. Welcome it, feel it, embrace it and in turn send the planet love, gratitude and take action to make a positive impact.
