Full moon in scorpio: May 2019
Blessings for the full moon. Tonight our moon is in the sign of Scorpio, the ruler of the deepest and most mysterious of the watery depths. When I think of the mysteries hidden within the darkness and the depths of water, I think of the mysteries of the womb, the darkness inside and the waters that come with new birth. The matters of the womb are under under a source of great controversy right now, causing great amounts of pain and distress. Looking to the stars, we find a sense of hope in the midst of all of this madness. Our Scorpio moon is nestled in the midst of two constellations, the first being Libra, the keeper of the scales, reminding us that the universe must always have balance. When the scales are tipped, justice will ultimately prevail. (Just a reminder that the eventual promise of equilibrium does not mean that we don’t need to actively work to bring about justice now.) The second constellation that our Scorpio moon finds herself in is Lupus, known as the Wolf or the Victim, reminding us that we have a choice: when the scales of justice are tipped to injustice, we can either react with submission and take on the role of the defeated victim, or we can take on the role of the wolf, who still may very well be victimized by the issues at hand, but reacts with a fierce strength to protect the pack. On this Full Moon, may you find the strength of the Wolf, the balance of Libra and may you find a little more understanding of the mysterious depths within yourself. Scorpio’s scorpion has a sting to it, but that sting can also be used as medicine if you allow it. Blessed be.
