"May 18th brings the Full Moon in Scorpio. This Full Moon is considered a Seasonal Blue Moon, as it is the fourth Full Moon following the Equinox.
Traditionally, the Scorpio Full Moon is considered one of the most powerful for releasing, cleansing, and transforming your life. This is because Scorpio is the sign that rules over death, rebirth, and spiritual transformation. Under the light of the Blue Scorpio Full Moon, we are all going to be beckoned to think about where we can peel back the layers to reveal more of our true authentic self. Rays of blue moonlight are going to pierce our masks, our heavy coats, our burdens, and help us to release and shed them to the ground. We no longer need to carry them. We no longer need to block ourselves from living up to the truth of who we really are. Take a deep breath and give yourself permission to let it all go. Make the time to retreat within, to the stillness of your inhale and exhale, where releasing happens. There, allow yourself to peel back the layers. Allow yourself to let it all go. You deserve to let it all go. All Full Moons are a powerful time of releasing and letting go, but the Scorpio Full Moon is a time where we can get deep with ourselves, and figure out what is holding us back, what is paining us, and what we need to clear in order to live up to our fullest potential. What does it look like when you are living up to the fullest of your potential? What does it look like when you start living from a space of true authenticity? Who do you become? These are the questions the Scorpio Full Moon is exploring, and while they may not all be answered in a day, you can start laying the foundation under this energy. While this energy is asking us to think about our direction and the path we are walking on, we are going to have to get deeper with this. Scorpio energy is not concerned with what you do, but rather how you do what you do. Your soul came into this life with a plan, but this plan didn’t contain human ideals or human conditions. Your soul didn’t map out what job it was going to take, what boyfriend it was going to date, your soul is beyond these things. Your soul came to learn, to experience, to feel, to teach, but most importantly, your soul came for adventure. And it is up to you, to figure out what adventure you wish to take it on. It is up to you to take your soul on the ride of its life. Your soul knows that no matter the path, the choices, the actions, or the decisions you make, it is only what YOU make of it that matters. There are no wrong paths in this life. In fact, every experience both good, bad, big, or small is always nudging you back onto your path and back into alignment. In this world, there are no wrong turns, just choices that you get to make every single day. Every day you get to make a decision about how you wish to see the world. Every day you get to decide if you are going to try something new, or go back to the comfort of what you already know. Neither is better than the other, it is all a choice that you simply get to make. Life is full of choices, and no matter what you choose, you have to remember that it is all part of the adventure. There is a heavy energy around this Full Moon that will be drawing us in and asking us to listen to the depths of our heart and soul. We are going to have to be gentle and patient with ourselves, and allow the magic of the Moon to do its work. If you simply take a moment to get still, the Moon will guide you to what you need to release, so you can become more of who you really are, free from the shackles of society, of thoughts, and of expectations. You are more powerful, more beautiful, more successful, more intelligent, more wonderful than you realize. You are more in tune with your soul than you realize. So trust the wisdom, trust the still, quiet voice that emerges when you tune in. The answers you seek are not outside of you, they are not necessarily big or grand, the answers your heart and soul give to you are the pure and simple truths that often get lost along the way. The pure and simple truths of who we are, our purpose, our soul plan, greet us in the everyday. Our life is not really about the big grand moments, it is about the small stuff that happens when we are busy making other plans. When we focus on the small, the bigger things seem to take care of themselves. So, while you are pondering your path and how to step into the fullness of your being, start with the smaller things. Start with the everyday things, start with the things you spend the most time doing, and see how that helps to slowly transform your world from the inside out. In a world that is always focused on the having of more and more, we so easily overlook the magic of the every day. It is up to us to find the truth in this, and to find the miracles and gratitude in the everyday things. The May Full Moon is a tender, yet powerful one. This is a time for us to explore the alchemy of transformation, this is a time for us to focus not on what we are doing, but how we are doing it and to remember that we are always on the right path."
