This is an important week for us all, as we prepare for the final Supermoon of 2020, and the next Full Moon Releasing Ritual, this Thursday. Take the time over the next few days to recognise all you need to let go off, old habits, thought patterns and unresolved stress, that you have been carrying for way to long and begin writing it all down. We have the opportunity to transform our thinking, perceptions, attitude, and ourselves, so we can truly thrive, no matter what else is going on around us. It is a time of rebirth, all too often we are the blocks to our own success when we do not relinquish negativity, hurt and upset from the past. A big gift of personal growth, you have a chance to alter your path NOW.
Full Moon cycles are 'endings', empower yourself with the tools to move forwards and face all you have been suppressing within. The universe has a plan for you and know that all is unfolding exactly as it should, no matter how you are... throw out the ego and go with the flow this week and forever more. A Scorpio Full Moon at 11.45am in the UK on 7th May and will appear full for 3 nights, from Tuesday evening to Friday morning. Keep your eyes on the sky! The ritual can be completed within 48 hours of this time.
To add into the mix of all that we are experiencing, the intense and emotional Scorpio aspect will see emotions running high and you may find that you are more sensitive with others. Watch communication, step away, breath and try extra hard to not over react. Anything that has felt like it has been held onto, and building within, must be cleared, but, as much as you are able to, do this in a positive way and do not fire off aggressively. If you do feel anger towards another, to an event or situation this week... it is a mirror showing you a trigger of that which you need to further clear from within... write it down! Unresolved stress is source of dis-ease and it is therefore vital we work on ourselves NOW.
We are being called to be more compassionate with ourselves, and others, to tap into our creativity and imagination, and manifest with intent. Harness the emotional energy this moon cycle provides and use it as a positive for your own personal healing and growth.
May's Full Moon is also known as Flower Moon and Vesak Festival (Buddha Day) Moon, as it falls on 7th. In astrology it is called a trine, as Neptune is also in Pisces, giving you extra strength, power and courage. Neptune represents our spirituality, intuition, psychic abilities and imagination.
