I'm still shoveling snow over here in the foothills of the Rockies so even though it's closing in on the end of April. it still feels a little wintry up in here. Such is the fickle nature of Spring. The constant surrender to some master plan devised and carried out by Mother Nature is part of our incredible journey on Planet Earth. The more adaptable you can be to circumstances beyond your control - the weather, other people's behaviors, the movement of the stars and planets, the mortgage rates - the happier you will be.
As an emotional being and as a being motivated by your emotions when you allow your emotions to move through you, without holding on to them until they get lodged as dis-ease in your body (the last line of your emotion's defenses), the more your true nature, that of Unconditional LOVE and acceptance, can shine through. Even if you have only glimpsed that part of you in this lifetime you know how wonderful it is to be in that state of consciousness. You can choose to move into a more loving and accepting place in consciousness but first you have to rid yourself of blocks and limitations that keep you from that enlightened space.
Receiving energetic healings, keeping your chakras clean, fresh, and open, being in Nature, turning off the news, learning your astrology chart and noting the influences working on you, gathering in groups to meditate and do healing rituals, committing to your path of your personal evolution as you release the toxic pattern of codependency - these are all stepping stones to your own healing and growth.
This Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio opposing the Sun in Taurus is the first in a series of three eclipses. Eclipses are POWERFUL times of transformation and shifts in consciousness, a time of consciousness re-booting. Full Moons are the opportunity each month for the light and wisdom of the Divine Feminine to illuminate that which needs to be shed. We look to the signs of the Sun and Moon and other planets involved to understand where the opportunities for these shifts are most prevalent in your experience.
Taurus Sun aligned closely with the dynamic energy of Mars and the love vibration of Venus during this lunation supports you in looking at your values and priorities. What you are willing to put your energies toward to build upon? The Sun is conjunct the South Node, identifier of patterns from the past. What values and priorities do you hold to from your past conditioning? Are these still serving you? If not, are you willing to let them go?
The Full Moon in Scorpio conjunct Saturn and the North Node points toward the depths of emotional transformation revealing itself to you in service to help you move more resolutely towards your destiny, which you get to create, moment-by-moment. Saturn will give you the commitment, emotional strength, and maturity to make the necessary shifts in your awareness. Scorpio, ruler of the 8th house in the astrological chart, relates to other people's values and how you work with them - or not.
This lunation can shed light on your relationship with other people's resources and values. If we are going to work together to lighten and brighten the world there has to be an understanding between people of what they hold dear and where they are willing to grow. It's a learning process of the utmost importance!
The climb up is so much more enjoyable with a buddy, especially if you're heading in the same direction - UP!
