Deep & intense emotions
By Mpumi Hlatshwayo, Thursday 16 May 2019 14h00
Scorpio is ruled by Mars and Pluto which makes it both mysterious and magnetic. The full moon in Scorpio will be on the 18th of May 2019. This is a very significant full moon happening in the sign of Scorpio. Full moons are usually a time of releasing the old and letting go of any baggage that we do not need on our journey. Whether this is a toxic relationship/friendship or a job that is just leading you nowhere. Scorpio energy is a sign that correlates with death and death in spirituality usually represents endings. Through our many transformations on our spiritual journey, we are constantly going through death and rebirth cycles. Every time we experience death, we experience a newness thereafter. This is a sense of shedding old skin and becoming renewed.
What these energies are really about:
Deep emotions will come to the surface, you will be forced to evaluate what else needs to die in your life. We would need to go in to deep reflection on what it is that we truly value in our lives. Scorpio is usually a very intense sign and it will not be easy for anyone to let go of something that means a lot to them. There may be a great sense of attachment to whatever needs to be released. Because letting go is never easy, these energies will also provide us with great healing as well. We still have the new moon energies in Taurus still strongly present. The new moon in Taurus is also about our finances and wealth (but can be about more than just money). Remember that the universe grants us wealth in other areas as well. Taurus is ruled by Venus and highlights the senses such as taste, love, passion and beauty. This energy allows you to see how you can do things different in these areas of your life. Taurus being an earth sign will allow you to bring some of these desires into reality and make them more tangible. How these energies will be affected during the full moon is that there may be changes in fortune. It is a very practical and earthy vibration. With the full moon in Scorpio you now have to ask yourself: What is it that I need to let go of? What is it that is keeping me from enjoying and manifesting these desires in my life?
Scorpio full moon is a time to remember to nurture yourself and go within to unveil the treasures that you hold inside. Move forward towards your deepest desires. Your attitude will need to be adjusted in order for you to be able to achieve your goals. Any areas that you have been experiencing difficulty in, will be the areas that are illuminated at this time. As you get to understand the truth of a situation, you will become changed and strengthened as well. You may be given a new area to focus your attention and energy on or you may be provided with a new perspective on a particular situation. What you can do to stay afloat is to remain motivated and balanced during this shift of energy. It is a good time to do your grounding meditation and say your prayers.
