Tonight is a Full Moon in Scorpio. In the Buddhist tradition, It's called the Vesak moon, the most powerful & transformative full moon of the year. Vesak is celebrated as Buddha's birthday. Buddha is the expression of the Wisdom of God, the embodiment of light and the indicator of divine purpose.
The May 2017 Wesak Full Moon theme is Compassion & Kindness – awakening to something greater than you through your Heart. It is the Full Moon of Good Fortune and a new cycle of creative expansion and sumptuous self-expression. Now is the time to play more! Let your inner-child passionately express your heart and run wild and free.
The Moon represents our needs and what surfaces under a Scorpio Moon is connection – a soulful, deep, intimate, powerful connection to another. Sometimes in seeking love, because of un-met needs and unresolved emotions, we can give away our power, leading to dysfunctional connections. Scorpios ruler Pluto, supports us to look within at the areas where you may not be expressing compassion or kindness to yourself or others. Consider re-committing to yourself in the areas you have overlooked or ignored lately.
This moon illuminates that which has been withheld or un-empowered and supports us to swim to the surface of our feelings to cleanse and heal the parts that have been un-nurtured, neglected or abandoned. Ultimately your most intimate connection is to your own soul and the deepest parts of yourself, and your primary relationship is to Infinite creator. Loving kindness and valuing oneself ,lays a solid foundation upon which other relationships can flourish, and necessary before we can truly be loved and valued by another in the way we truly desire.
Pushing through obstacles bring about the glory of many gifts. With the three totems of the Scorpion, the Eagle, and Phoenix, you can choose how to embody life moving forward. Will you continue to sting yourself and others like a scorpion with unkindness or patterns that no longer serve, or will you rise high above these patterns, drama, and pettiness like the Eagle, and see the big picture? Or will you transform that which has held you back into an alchemical rebirth like the Phoenix and rise from the ashes renewed and reborn?
This is the time to set your goals. Allow your creative wings to fly you new places, new people, and new experiences, and embrace the awakening of a spectacular new chapter in the life of your dreams.
Love, Light, and blessings,
