Full Moon in Scorpio Today - May 14th


Just before the full moon (this afternoon on the east coast of the U.S.) - the moon makes a conjunction to Scorpio. Saturn has been in Scorpio since late 2012.

So, we've got the sun in Taurus which is all about our values (the stuff money can buy and the stuff money can't) - a full moon in Scorpio which is about deep release and transformation and this conjunction with Saturn making this transformation with our values a structural change. Since Scorpio is a water sign we have emotional power with this.

Saturn in Scorpio doesn't like to yield or compromise - he likes to be in control and wants to hold his ground. The area of your life where you can relate to this posture is the area you can get a real breakthrough now.

I can't think of one person I know who is not undergoing some kind of restructuring with their basic foundation right now. I really feel a very strong push toward "having to look at what we don't want to look athaving to do what we do not want to do" in this energy.

There is a "living with the unknown" space with this - lots of uneasiness and everyone trying to figure out the best way to move forward in whatever area of your life this shows up.

Remember we always get the breakthrough and not the breakdown when we release our grip.

Think clear and empty today - eat lightly. Use your words mindfully - say less. Work up a sweat (outdoors if possible). Take an epsom salt bath. Spend some time tonight in meditation. Let any sense of fear, judgement, need to control or feeling of victim-hood (why is this happening to me) be released now. The energy at play is totally supportive and will help us do this.

NOTE - this energy isn't just about today - this is stuff that has been at play in our life for months and years and even ages - we are always safe. We can let go.

Oh Cat.

So much going on right now with changes and letting go of 'stuff' both physical and mental, changes in direction and moving on. We've been stuck in one comfortable spot for a long time, it seems, and change is hard. Grieving for what we are leaving behind and uncomfortable with what lies ahead. Should I/shouldn't I? What happens if we fail? Do we die or do we keep breathing? Change is hard, yep.

Outside to clean up after Sunday's tornado. Lived in the Midwest all my life and never seen one but Sunday we lived through a relatively low-power one. Lots of tree clean up and repair one corner of the barn roof and we were beyond lucky. Neighboring farms lost much more. Outside to sweat, right on.

I am so glad you are ok through that tornado Lynn! Extreme weather stuff is powerful (there is a connection between the energy we - the collective we - put out and hold onto and weather) - I remember someone saying tornadoes are breathtaking in their beauty and unspeakable in their ruin - laying waste to one house and leaving the next untouched. A powerful metaphor for what is happening now.

"We've been stuck in one comfortable spot for a long time, it seems, and change is hard. Grieving for what we are leaving behind and uncomfortable with what lies ahead. Should I/shouldn't I? What happens if we fail? Do we die or do we keep breathing?" .... me, too - you nailed it

going outside to sweat now, too - it's cold and rainy so it's going to take some effort, but I'm on it - xo

We had an unusually hot and humid day yesterday, but it didn't stop me from taking the pooch for our daily walk... still need to stretch and breathe the fresh air, no matter how damp it may feel.

I feel with change like I am at the beginnings again, of so many things, but I can feel good forward movement coming my way too. I haven't always felt this kind of confidence, but it's good to be feeling it now. ♥
