Full Moon in Scorpio - Embrace Your Deepest Feelings

This Sunday, 4/29/2018 at 5:58 PM PT the Full Moon is exact at 9° Scorpio.

Scorpio is a fixed Water sign, which makes it seek fulfillment in the emotional realm. Scorpio's energy is like a swirl of water taking us deeply within and confronting desires and feelings that we usually tend to hide from others (and from ourselves).

Full moon in Scorpio may bring out deeply intense emotions and wounds from the past that we have hidden beneath a mask.

 

Now is the time to breakthrough, to face our fears, forgive and let go of what has passed.

 

Transformation is associated with this Full Moon in Scorpio.

 

Ask yourself: 

What is ready to be reborn?

What am I ready to shed like a snake shedding her old skin that no longer serves her highest good?

What mask have I been wearing that was hiding my true feelings?

What is it that wants to fall away, to break free, that desires to come out from the deepest depth of my soul?

 

If you feel like crying or even screaming, do so. Let the emotions flow through you so that they can leave your body, symbolizing the water under the bridge, leaving the past behind.


This moon in Scorpio asks us to go deeply within and embrace what we usually hide from others and ourselves... The “bad” emotions within us...  Embracing the shadows for they make us human.

How many times do we answer “good” to the question “how are you?” just because it’s easier than letting out a waterfall of truth how we really feel deeply within? 

Sometimes feelings are hard to put into words. Feelings don’t have a reason. They just are. Our lives may be perfect, we may have everything we need but still we feel sad, angry, stressed at times. And that’s ok. That’s human. If we were happy at all times, something would be wrong. We would be blocking some feelings from coming through. And blocked feelings cause dis-ease in the soul, spirit, mind and body.

 

 

On this Scorpio Full Moon remember:

 

It’s ok to feel sad.

It’s ok to feel depressed.

It’s ok to feel stressed.

It’s ok to feel lonely.

It’s ok to feel angry.

It’s ok to feel confused.

It’s ok not to be ok.

 

 

I believe that many suicides could be prevented if we let ourselves feel. Living in a first world country it’s easy to feel like we don’t deserve to have “negative” feelings. At least that’s how I felt for a long time. I felt guilty when I was sad or depressed. I thought, I have everything I need, I have food, shelter, and peace where I live. I have no right to feel sad while others are starving or trying to survive during war.

 

So I swallowed my emotions, put on a smile, focused on the "good" … meanwhile the emotions are stuck within me and manifested themselves in different body aches and illnesses…

By not releasing emotions when they arise we actually subconsciously hold onto them. We dwell on them even though we try so hard to “focus on the good”. But life is not just about peace and happiness.

Life is a symphony of all feelings. Anger, sadness, stress, grief… these feelings will come up no matter how “spiritual” we are, no matter how “good” we eat or how “positive” we think. These feelings are part of life. By letting them flow through us we release them.

 

So on this full moon, take some time to cry. Or scream, or laugh. Whatever it is that wants to come through.

 

Don’t blame someone else for your emotions. We are in control of how we feel as well as of how we think. Other people and situations are sent to us to trigger certain emotions that we hold within us so that we can release them for our overall health.

When someone is feeling low, reach out with an embrace. There’s no need to give advice or to try to fix things, unless the person is asking for it. Even if you’re not close to the person you can still send loving energies to him/her. The power of love and prayer has been scientifically proven (I’m excited to write a blog post about this soon!).

This Scorpio moon it’s time to embrace our deepest self, our hidden shadows. Forgive and let go. Write down what you're ready to let go and burn it as a symbol of transformation.

 

It’s time for a rebirth. Yay!
