Daily Magic: May 9, 2017 {On Full Moons and Scorpios}

Astrologers have been warning us for weeks to brace ourselves for tomorrow’s Scorpio Full Moon. A full moon in Scorpio? Oh noooooo… cue the retro image of a shrieking crowd running down city streets.

As a quintuple Scorpio myself, I have a different take on it.

Life as a Scorpio in a world that fears {re: desires} sex, money, death and dark things hasn’t exactly been easy.

But nothing surpasses the intense passion of the Dark Feminine embodied by goddesses like Lilith, Kali, Hekate, or the goddesses of the underworld. Still, that’s another topic.

With the illumination {stark realizations} of a full moon coupled with the powers of Scorpio, what does this mean for you?

A Scorpio Full Moon is about releasing what’s hidden. This usually comes out in one of two ways: anger, or tears, and possibly both.

Our emotions can catch us off guard because we like to keep that part of ourself buried in the shadows, hidden even from our own self. Emotions make us vulnerable and open – ripe for love – and that can create even more fear than we’re already cradling in secret.

Let’s talk about anger. In this case, we’re not talking about losing your stuff because somebody didn’t acknowledge your performance piece. That’s just an ego hurt of probably a Leo. Or it could be today’s Mercury conjunct Uranus in Aries. Watch for unexpected news throwing you off kilter, and keep working on those flexible negotiations with partners.

Scorpio anger is much more intuitive, or psychic, and it goes much deeper. You might wake up tomorrow morning and want to throw out EVERYTHING that bores or tires you, such as your entire life.

Or you might be angry at the world. This is a powerful force that can be used for protection, justice and self-empowerment, or as a tool for violence and harm. We reap karma either way.

But the first step is to allow your heart to rage instead of holding it in. Be angry at the social injustice. Be angry at the ignorant holding political power. Be angry that the person you trusted lied, cheated, or broke your heart. Be angry at your own guilt. Or be sad, and feel the despair.

“Forgive yourself for taking shit from others.” – Maryam Hasnaa

If you can relax in solitude, and allow your very natural anger or tears to flow without resistance, you can wash out old stale energy to make room for something brand new.

After emotions run their course, you’ll awaken to a brighter, clearer, shinier world…. Just remember to love and honor your dark side too. Both the light and the dark have their risks. But they also have their divine purposes.

May your life be infused with magic and may you truly enjoy your existence. With love, Elizabeth aka Intuitive Fish
