The Full MOON peaked on April 22, 2016 at 10:25pm (PST) in the powerful sign of Scorpio ruled by Pluto. Intense energies will illuminate over the next several days & continue for a few weeks during the post Full Moon phase. Full Moons are symbolic of many things including letting go & completion. Themes from the last New Moon may carry over now with a readiness to be released, healed or perhaps manifest into the physical plane. In Scorpio you have an opportunity to
go within & explore your own dark shadows and edges. What are you ready to face head on & in truth? What shadow aspects of the self are you willing peel back & reach on a deeper level? This energy puts the spotlight on your desires, shows you where you are different from others & fuels your perseverance. Your shadow aspects may be revealed to you in dreams, personal experiences, sudden realizations, via messages during meditation or in other ways. It doesn’t matter how it reaches you, but more how you choose to experience it. Many souls are afraid of their shadow aspects and you don’t have to be. This is part of your being and the more willing you are to look at all the pieces that make up the whole of you, the more you step into self-awareness and self-acceptance. This is one of the gifts the shadow side brings to you.
If you’re an Empath like me, the energies from this particular Full Moon in Scorpio may be extra intense as this influence challenges us and the collective universe to explore more of the darker aspects of self. For many this is not an easy and pleasant experience and as Empaths, we have a tendency to easily pick up on these collective energies which can cause mood shifts, energy depletion and exhaustion. It’s important to discern what belongs to us vs. others and continue to focus on healing opportunities that we have in these moments. Taking some extra solo time, resting and getting outside in nature, can really help shift things. Last night, I laid on the earth in nearby Balboa Park and absorbed the healing and powerful energies of Gaia. I felt my energy shift in a positive way and my body and energy layers felt refreshed & rejuvenated.
Wishing you an amazing experience that brings more growth & helps you evolve to your next level. Love, Mary Kate
