Today's Buddha Moon (5/14) brings us to the final phase of our Spring Eclipse season. We have spent the last year or so moving through Taurus/Scorpio lessons, and now Aries/Libra lessons are being ushered in. Hopefully, we will begin to see/experience more of the collaborative spirit that Nature teaches, that all works together for good, and that dominance/oppression is destructive & unsustainable.
It has been my theory that, as we integrate new power, channel our resources in new ways and honor nature (Taurus/Scorpio) post-2012, we must learn to express ourselves (Aries) and relate in new, more effective ways with others (Libra). We had all (but one) New Moons with Taurus/Scorpio, indicating the new patterns & pathways being activated, while all 6 Aries/Libra Eclipses will be Full Moons, indicating patterns which are ready to be upgraded or released and pathways that have hit a dead-end of sorts.
If you are able to take the next 2-4 weeks to mine your Soul for your very own treasure, the following lunation in Gemini/Sag will give you time to process and assimilate what you discover and develop throughout this Underworld journey.
I am likening this Eclipse season to a trip in to Deep Space. It feels like we're navigating a completely different realm than ever before. This Scorpio Full Moon will reveal many things and connect you to your own Soul's desires, as well as fears, catalyzing the deepest of all surrenders. Some aspect of life has truly died, but only in the way that it creates space & nutrient for new life to take root. As Mars goes Direct (5/19) and Sun moves in to Gemini (5/20) a process begins that I liken to "re-entry in to Earth's atmosphere". It's tricky, dangerous but most of the time, ultimately, successful. My point is, there is a "process" to coming back down to Earth (after 'portals & choices & crossroads - oh my!), whereby you must release anything sticking to your suit (aura) or vehicle (body) and a certain decompression (so you can breathe again) must happen. Try to allow your Self some time for this process over the next 2-4 weeks.
Then, Cancer time (June/July) will usher in Jupiter's final blessings, rewarding you with the nourishment & protection of your NEW *Home*. Home that you find in your own Center (heart), as well as home on the New Earth which operates at a higher frequency than humans have ever lived for. It's important to take that time to put down some roots around whatever feeds & supports you best, stabilize your Self (home base) before jumping in to Leo playtime (with others).
But before we get too far ahead of ourselves, today's Scorpio Full Moon, though part of the larger story, is also an annual completion. It gives you a chance to release or compost whatever has outgrown its natural lifespan. Take some time to *cleanse & purify* your system of all that has been repressed, suppressed and pushed to the farthest and deepest realms of your life and consciousness. Use the energy to release waste, debris & the nonessential and the light of the Full Moon to bathe yourself with new life, vitality & power.
PS ~ I used the *Sandcastle* pic because it represents our return to a life made by hand! and it includes all the elements we need ~ Earth, Water, Air & Fire ~ to create beauty & structure that is a more authentic representation of our Truth. This one reminds me of Aladdin ~ Magic ~ Test of Values, Courage & Conscious Awareness ~ I could go on but you get the gist ; -)
