Scorpio Full Moon – Illuminating the Passion
The Scorpio moon is the most passionate and emotional moon of the year, so if you are feeling things are getting more intense you can blame it on this full moon. Full moons illuminate our emotions and we feel everything more deeply and personally, so it’s time to prepare ourselves for another emotional couple of weeks!
This is the moon when secrets are revealed, and we have to face the truth. We can no longer pretend everything is alright, especially if we have been in denial about something. A Scorpio moon also pushes us to make the changes we so desperately need to make, because we can no longer ignore the deep inner passion and intensity we are feeling.
Here are my 7 top tips too successfully surfing this Scorpio Full moon wave!
What’s Your Passion
The sun has just entered the sign of Taurus giving us the stubbornness and creativity to think outside the box, while the Scorpio full moon energises and fuels our wild, passionate selves. Don’t be afraid of your feelings. It’s time to throw caution to the wind and let inspiration be your fuel, as solutions can be found over this moon. Allow your passion to guide you through this moon cycle and break through whatever is stopping you from following your desire.
Acknowledge your Feelings
These Scorpio moons can be very watery and emotional so if you find yourself bursting into tears for no reason, don’t worry! IT’S NORMAL! We feel everything more intensely, and so things that we can usually cope with can get blown up over this full moon, making our emotions run wild.
The best thing to do is to acknowledge how you are feeling without judgement. Be firm with yourself to stop the ‘must’erbating, ‘should’ ing and ‘anal’ysing as this can just exacerbate the situation. When we allow ourselves to feel how we are feeling we can start accepting the situation, enabling us to start finding solutions.
Enjoy What is Good
If you are feeling really emotional focus on what is good! Human beings are defaulted to negative so we are always going to see that perspective first. But we are living in a duality reality and it is a universal lore of Nature that there is a blessing in every burden and a burden in every blessings, that there cannot be dark without light, nor pain without pleasure, so focus on what is pleasurable, fun and exciting. When we focus on the good we automatically generate more of that good! Try it and see!
Embrace your Vulnerability
A Scorpio moon illuminates the darkness so instead of hiding from your shadow self, embrace that FINE (Fucked up, Insecure, Neurotic, Emotional) part of you. Life is going super fast so if you are keeping it together you are doing well! Acknowledge the vulnerable part of you that may be finding it hard to cope with the intensity of it all. It’s OK to be vulnerable! When we embrace this vulnerable part we can start to serve ourselves in the right way. So if it gets difficult and dark over this moon don’t be afraid to ASK for help and seek the support you need.
Accept the Intensity
Life is getting intense as the days seem to be speeding by and there is always so much to do and so little time! We can easily burn out over this moon as we are faced with all the things we haven’t done, could have done better, or should have done!! Don’t let the mental ‘must’erbation take you down. The key this moon is to just accept the intensity, do what you can, and let go of the rest.
Face Life as it is
This moon can throw a whole lot of emotional stuff up to the surface but when we take personal responsibility, and face life as it is and not as we would like it to be we become empowered and get back in the driving seat. We all make mistakes, its just those that can forgive themselves move forward more easily, and faster. Don’t be too hard on yourself over this moon. The two mantras I use are; ‘it can only get better’ and ‘I am doing my best’. When we accept things as they are we stop fighting and start flowing, which is a lot more enjoyable and pleasurable. Allow yourself to flow with everything that is happening this moon and you will feel a lot calmer and more peaceful
Trust Your Own Inner Wisdom
Listen to your intuition over this moon period and follow it’s advice. To strengthen your intuition you need to work out with it everyday just as we do in the gym to get our muscles strong. Start with the simple things like phoning that person who keeps popping into your head, trusting your deepest feelings, and following your truth. If it is not harming or hurting anyone, it’s your deepest inner wisdom talking.
Too often we take the advice of others that is often detrimental. The more we listen to our own inner wisdom and guidance the stronger and more empowered we become. We stop listening to others and become our own guru… Use this Scorpio energy to re-ignite your creativity, put you back in the driving seat of your life, and spur you on to live your passion!
I will end this Lunascope with the wise words from Steve Jobs:
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.”
