The Full Moon in Scorpio casts its light on the shadowy places where the inner workings of our subconscious psyches work their spells of creation. This one, that peaks at 4:45 am MDT on May 7, 2020 reflects an impressive amount of light from the Sun, Mercury and Uranus in Taurus and begs us to examine what it is that we’re constructing now. Scorpio’s ruling planet, Pluto, takes us deeper into this journey of discovery as it recently went retrograde and will remain so through early October of 2020.
If we dare to explore our deepest desires and find ourselves wanting more, what are we yearning for? If we sit long enough in the space of uncertainty, will peace prevail?
For some, this is a time of simplification. It’s a time to cut away what is superfluous and cultivate and appreciate what truly matters. For others, the dichotomy of what we have and what we want feels impossible to resolve. If we’re honest, we’ll admit that we can feel both of these extremes almost simultaneously.
This is the gift and the challenge of polarities. In astrology, the way forward is always shown when we come to the center. When we stand firmly in the middle ground of both Scorpio and Taurus, we allow the creative life-sustaining power of unconditional love to fill our beings and fuel our choices with passion. For ourselves first, and then naturally and organically for others. In this hallowed space, we know that each one of us is doing our own work on our own path while also contributing to the good of the world.
When we cut through the noise and drop the façade of control, living in integrity becomes clear and simple, whether it’s dawn or midnight – whether the path we’re on is known or mysterious, or some indescribable place in-between.
As the Moon’s light waxes full this month in Scorpio’s mystery, may its light cleanse the tidal channels of our hearts; may our tears flow as freely as soft rain; and may we embody and express our power as beings of love. For all relations.
With great love, always love.
