Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio

The watery depths of this Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio can bring great
wisdom, growth and healing — especially if we allow ourselves to go deep,
feel and let go of something that no longer serves us.

On May 5th, we reach a potent time of this Eclipse Season with the Full Moon
Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio. This a peak moment of the lunar cycle that started with
the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Aries on April 19th. What desires or new energies
were sparked during that time? This moon brings illuminations, unexpected
events, heightened emotions and intensity. It is also a final release of a story of
letting go that started last year. This is the last of the South Node Scorpio Eclipse
series that occurred on May 15, 2022 and October 25, 2022. Notice what was
happening then as this cycle now closes, marking endings and resolutions
necessary for our development.

Eclipses are powerful times of initiation for our evolutionary growth. We are
transforming into more authentic versions of ourselves and becoming more of who we came here to be. Feel into your heart, honor how far you’ve come and
celebrate YOU under the full Moonlight!

This time can be symbolic of the caterpillar's journey to becoming a butterfly, the
snake shedding its skin and the phoenix rising from the ashes. Scorpio at its best
has the ability to transmute, alchemize and transform what has been hidden to
light. It represents the archetype of the Shaman who digs deep beyond the surface through shadowy terrain of the Underworld and excavates gems of wisdom for healing, empowerment and rebirth.

Embrace the process. If fear, anxiety and emotions arise, what can you allow it to
teach you? What if fear was just courage becoming known? Where can you invite
in more love and trust? Remember that everything is temporary. Let the eclipses
move through your life as a way of cleansing and clearing your path. What is
ready to be shed can be looked at as compost, a necessary material for fertile
soils of new growth. While this is a phase of uncertainty and there could be
waves of big feelings, we can trust that in moving through this portal, we will
emerge through to the other side with more clarity and liberation.

5 Holistic Tips for the Scorpio Eclipse

01. Ground and center. The Sun is currently in earth sign, Taurus (on the opposing axis of Scorpio) shining a light on the importance of connecting to the magic and medicines of Earth. Turn to Mother Nature for rest, restoration and release. Touch your bare feet to the Earth, drop into your body and breathe in the sensual pleasure of being alive. 

02. Feel the feelings. Engage in practices that encourage feeling and alchemizing 
emotions into life force energy. Journaling, breathwork, Shamanic drum journeying, Cacao Ceremony, Ecstatic Dance, Kundalini Yoga, Chanting/Singing are healthy ways to support cathartic release and lift your vibration. 

03. Gather a support system to process and integrate the shifts and upgrades. 
This is a great time to work with a therapist, coach, counselor, astrologer or healer 
that can guide you through the initiations happening in your life. Plant medicines 
are also supportive during these times of transformation and expansion. Creating a ritual or ceremony with Cacao connects us with our heart, supports emotional 
processing and can help liberate us from what holds us back from living in 
alignment with our true nature. 

04. Tend to your systems. Take extra care of yourself by doubling up on self-care 
routines. Incorporate additional moments throughout your day to connect with your breath, body, mind and heart. Try not to over-schedule yourself on the Full Moon. Take it slow, stay hydrated and rest as much as possible. 

05. Ritual Body Scrub + Oiling: 
Like a snake shedding its skin, we know that growth requires shedding what's old 
and ready to go. To assist this purification process, take a healing bath with salts, 
plants and/or essential oils. Use a body scrub to wash away dead skin cells and 
imagine anything that no longer serves being released.

Journaling Prompts 
With curiosity and objectivity, notice what arises during this time and journal.

  • What am I willing and ready to let go of? 
  • What would my life look like if I was liberated from this? 
  • What new version of myself am I transforming into? 
  • What wisdom can I receive from my experience? 
Complete with a list of gratitude for the illuminations and blessings in your life.
