Today we have a powerful full Moon in Scorpio opposing the Sun in Taurus.
One way to consider a Full moon is to look at how our emotional body is working with
our personality body - -the Sun.
With the Sun in Taurus, we are wanting to feel secure on the earth plane – in the
northern hemisphere that can mean getting crops going for the spring, airing out
windows and getting ready for warmer weather, that leads to the food that will
nurture us in the winter which won’t be far off. Taurus is ever practical
and thinking about the basics like food, shelter and comfort. In the
southern hemisphere the need for security may lie in getting the crops in and
making sure the blankets are sufficient and the food stores robust enough to get
us through the colder times.
With the opposite sign, Scorpio, gracing the Full Moon, we are being asked to look at
how our emotional body feels in the security department. With the Moon
conjunct Saturn (master of time, Karma, structure, authority) in Scorpio we
might say – where are the cracks in the structure that helps us with healthy
boundaries in this world. Are the neighbors being noisy, staying up
late and invading your space? Is it time for double glazing?
It is a great time to look at the structure of our surroundings and our
inner landscape so that we have a relatively safe place from which to launch and
to which we can return.
Scorpio will do anything to transform to evolve, to find a way to reunite with the
energy of all that is, but there is an innate fear of that very transformation. So we need to do a few things that make us feel somewhat cozier about jumping into the fire that will burn away that which we no longer
Make a list of what we hope the transformation will bring – to bring on the boldness
Perhaps have a delicious meal and a good night’s sleep
and start your latest adventure -- the one that takes you
straight to your biggest edge – well rested and on a full stomach.
Scorpio may be secretive and Taurus may feel like it needs to do it all by itself.
But Scorpio also knows how to get others to help share the load. So if you
are getting ready to begin a transformation – new haircut, new job, new
meditation practice, a move across the world to start all over again – perhaps
you can ask someone to take part of the trip with you. Perhaps you can ask
for an opinion from a trusted friend or advisor.
How can you shore up your emotional cup? One way is to know
that it is okay to lean into the power of the Universe and to remember that your higher
self has your best interest at heart.
Remember that Mars is still retrograde in Libra til May 19. As Mars helps us move
our energy in the world, we may STILL not feel like moving forward. Allow
this to be the case, and review plans, make check lists, go inside and see if the idea you’ve been sure
that you wanted to run with needs to be revamped, copy edited by a friend, or
just shelved altogether until you are feeling the urge for forward motion.
The Fixed Taurus Sun Scorpio New Moon is one of the most potent of the year.
Fixed signs pack a lot of energy if we can allow ourselves to get on
board. With the Full Moon conjunct Saturn – your intentions and actions --
now and in the months to come – mean business. So go say hi to the
Moon tonight and definitely say hi to the Sun today. What has been welling
up in you can be assisted from conception to birth by their potent combination.
Lots of love to you all.
