Full Moon in Scorpio: Wednesday, May 14th 2014

 

The Full Moon is exact at 23 degrees Scorpio and occurs Wednesday, May 14th at 12:16 PDT/3:16 EDT and 7:16 GMT.

A Full Moon is the lunar phase that occurs when the Moon is completely illuminated by the Sun as seen from our view on earth.  In Astrology, a Full Moon phase suggests something within the subconscious (the Moon) becomes illuminated into the conscious awareness (the Sun).

Wednesday’s Full Moon in Scorpio highlights the deep, intense and transformational energy which has been quite the focus as of late, especially after the recent Lunar and Solar Eclipses and the Cardinal Grand Cross of April.  Scorpio energy is of the water element and is fixed in nature, and expresses its need for depth and transformation through intimacy and emotional truths.  As with all Full Moon phases, it is an extremely intense and emotional time for us all.  Whenever Scorpio energy is involved, it encourages us to dig even deeper and further under the surface, into the shadows of our subconscious and our emotions, to inspire and ignite a necessary change.

The Sun in Taurus is now in direct opposition with the Moon in Scorpio.  This suggests we are in a struggle with how we value ourselves and our perception of how others value us.  It is a power struggle between our higher spiritual selves and the material values and perceptions of the outside world.  Don’t fall victim to the boundaries and expectations of others or the illusions these perceptions create in our minds.  It is time to figure out what actions and thought patterns aren’t working in our lives and to face them head on.  It’s time to fully examine all the  “teddy bears” we are still holding on to that are in reality holding us back.  Let it all go.  Refuse to allow anything to take up energy or space in your consciousness unless it is divinely aligned with what you value at your core and hold true in your heart.  Now is the time to dive deep beneath the surface to determine what truly matters to you, to prioritize how you really feel and take that wisdom to transcend to new heights.

Recognizing self sabotaging behaviors and breaking free from old paradigms of thought takes perseverance and is the most significant catalyst toward moving forward with a brave heart.  It takes wisdom to know what needs to be changed, and raw, deliberate courage to integrate it into your conscious awareness and make change happen.  Courage is everything now, as you move deeper into faith, and further commit to surrendering to inner truth.   Now is the time for new values and new ways of life.  Challenge yourself to fully examine what is bringing you down and renounce it completely at the core of your being.  Extract the truth and allow it to rise up through your emotions, just like the Phoenix rising from the ashes.  Remain in gratitude for the lessons learned and take ownership of your part of it, then allow yourself to detach and consciously take action to shift things into a higher frequency.  There is so much great potential for renewal, rebirth and the reemergence of a new, higher vibrational self after such a deep purge.  Although it may not always seem apparent, the truth is forever lying underneath it all.

New Moon Solar Eclipse in Taurus April 28th/29th 2014: Your Truth Will Set You Free

The New Moon in Taurus/Solar Eclipse occurs Monday and Tuesday, April 28th and 29th at 11:14 PDT.  A Solar Eclipse occurs when the Sun, Moon and Earth align, as the Moon passes between the Sun and the Earth, dimming its light.  This transit intercepts energy from the Sun and how it illuminates and affects the web of life here on Earth, rebooting us with a new consciousness.  A Solar Eclipse is a rare and powerful New Moon, and is the perfect time to put forth positive energy and intentions into the Universe.  Align your goals with your truth, while clearly and deliberately focusing these intentions, and channel this Solar Eclipse to help manifest a new reality and a positive change for yourself and the collective consciousness.

 

At 9 degrees Taurus, this Solar Eclipse focuses on change and uncovering our authentic inner truth.  Now is the time to get real, ground yourself, and focus on what you want to birth and/or rebirth in your life.  Taurus energy is ruled by the planet Venus, and encourages us to align with our deepest values and an unconditional love for both ourselves and for others.  This, in its essence, lays the foundation for embracing our truth, encourages gratitude and an appreciation for all, and is subsequently the catalyst toward making healthy decisions in our lives and aligning with Source; the true path to our divine soul purpose.

 

Now is a time for feeling.  It’s the time to quiet the mind, and let the heart do the speaking.  So much of what has so long been suppressed is now coming to light.  It may feel as if our foundation, the very ground beneath us, has been shaking and is in the midst of crumbling away.  If this feels so, then allow it to dissolve and crumble away!  This release of energy is much needed to rebuild on what is real and what is true.  With a heart filled with  gratitude and compassion for the lessons learned, now is the time to consciously detach from the energies of the world that no longer serve you and a higher vibrational good.  This can mean the release of people, of places, material things, ideas, emotions and beliefs, anything tangible or intangible that is stunting your progress toward your true potential.

 

So much of our old value systems are based on illusions.  Illusions about ourselves, illusions about others and illusions of the world are constructs of the mind and the ego and are in fact holding us back.  These illusions create a foundation like straw, they can be burnt down or blown away with the wind on a whim.  The truth runs deep, it is solid and it is abiding.  It will provide a dependable foundation with strong and powerful roots that will help nurture your growth and transcends all obstacles and time.  I feel we are being given a choice. Do you want to begin this new journey with a foundation made from straw, or do you deserve a new, solid foundation made of brick like truth?

 

Empower yourself, and refuse to fall victim to a fear of change.  Embrace this need for growth and development and allow it to clear space for new beginnings.  Break free from antiquated paradigms that are conditioned by low frequency fears, negativity and doubts.   We are either prisoners of or empowered by our thoughts and our values.  Our very thoughts create our reality and have the power to manifest anything we desire and strive toward if we believe it possible and will it so.  Now is the time for seeing and embracing what is real and allowing new energy to come in and help us transform and evolve toward a positive, more divinely aligned future.

 

Welcoming these changes and surrendering to a deep, unwavering inner truth takes courage, perseverance  and strength.  Channel this earthy and powerful Taurus energy as a catalyst toward the positive changes you desire, and push forward with a determined commitment toward your goals and a peaceful force.  Now is a time for being fully present in the moment and for trusting and believing in your truth.  It is our truth that sets us free, gives us wings to fly and grants us the strength to reach the highest heights we’ve always dreamed of.     .
