On Saturday May 18th at 2:11pm PST we will have a Full Moon in Scorpio at 27 degrees.
This Full Moon represents alchemy at the deepest level.
Taurus and Scorpio are polar opposites, Taurus has to do with personal resources and Scorpio has to do with others, other people’s resources.
This full moon asks: Are you ready to transcend all your past limitations?
Are you ready to use your resources?
The major highlights of this Full Moon are:
-Mercury at 24 degrees of Taurus conjunct the Sun and Sedna both at 27 degrees of Taurus.
-Mercury trine Pluto and Capricorn in Capricorn
-Venus conjunct Uranus in Taurus
-Mars freshly into Cancer sextile Uranus and Venus
Mercury in Taurus conjunct the Sun and Sedna is telling us to slow our thinking down, to stop living five steps ahead and be present with our emotions, strengths and our vision.
Take five actual deep breaths. Smell the flowers that are poppin, take a bath, eat well.
Tap into your senses at this full moon to integrate and re-boot your system. You don’t need to figure everything out right now. You just need to take care of what’s immediately in front of you.
The other stuff is just unfolding exactly how it is supposed to.
Pluto is the ruler of Scorpio and the God of the Underworld, he unearths areas that we need to be aware of, our wounded parts that contain our unbridled personal power.
The trine to Pluto at this Full Moon is showing us where we need to re-integrate that power through owning our personal wounds.
The Moon is in it’s fall in Scorpio which is to say that when the Moon, the representation of our personal emotional security, is set to Scorpio which has to do with others and transformation through others we can get a little confused, suspicious and maybe even a bit delusional about relating to others.
It’s important to remind yourself that no one has it all figured out, no one is trying to emotional harm you on purpose(unless they are in which case back away slowly) and that talking with trusted people always soothes the emo of the Scorpio full moon even if your instinct is to shut down, hide out and suffer in silence.
The deepest alchemy happens when we invite others into our consciousness to play together. This is the magic of the Scorpio full moon.
Sure you’ve been burned before, if only we had a penny for all the times, and yet we are here to keep showing up.
We are here to be brave and to transcend.
When others betray our trust, it says nothing about you and everything about their wounds.
Humans are flawed and yet they are all worthy of being given a chance.
But just like that saying: “Hurt me once shame on you, hurt me twice shame on me.” Because the polarity of Taurus and Scorpio have more to do with boundaries than any of the other signs.
Make good choices, secure wobbly boundaries and be ready to grow and awaken in ways that you had no idea were even possible. Here is a tarot spread I created for this Scorpio Full Moon if you test it out will you tag Sparkle and Shine Guidance on social media so we can see it?
Blessings on your transformation!
