full moon


Flower Moon

This Saturday is a Full Moon. Most calenders say it is on Sunday the 6th, but that is for Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia. For us, the moon will be it's fullest on Saturday. Some of you might have heard the term supermoon. The astrological term is a perigee full moon, which basically means that this moon will be the closest to the earth out of any moon this year. 

This is the largest moon of the year and is the Scorpio Full Moon {which makes me happy because in western astrology I am a Scorpio and have Scorpio Sun and Moon}, the fixed water sign of feminine power. Remember a few weeks ago when we were talking about power in relation to the new moon? As the moon was new and becoming full we had the opportunity to redefine our sense of power, and to step into and harness it. We were taking it on as the moon was taking on more light and getting more and more full. Now as the moon is at it's fullest and ready to let go of light with each day, it is a good time to think about power in a more feminine way, by receiving and allowing. And we can learn this from the feminine power of the Scorpio. It calls us to dive deeply into the mysteries of life to see that which needs to be transformed. Transformation is the realm of Scorpio. These energies are mysterious and intense. When we are willing to face our fears, the unknown, a dying and letting go, the result is a rebirth, transformation and an increase in our own personal power. From now until the time of the new moon, don't be afraid to dive deep into your own darkness, your own fears. The energy of the moon will help you transform those fears into power. Let this be a time of taking a leap into the unknown, into the darkness. Let the light of the moon shine on the areas that need to be transformed, and let the light guide your way. 

Most likely, because this is the closest full moon of the year, it's effects will be felt the strongest. It will be creating higher and lower tides than usual. And just think about that as it relates to us, since our bodies are made mostly of water. You may feel it's push and pull more in the next few days. Try to stay grounded; being in nature and sending it some gratitude, meditating or taking a hot bath with salts are great ways to say grounded.

These are the times when the emotional intensities of the full moon will be felt the strongest
Friday, 5/4 – all day and night, especially volatile 2:02 pm – 10:20 pm
Saturday, 5/5 – all day and night
Sunday, 5/6 – all day and night, especially volatile 8:14 am – 9:39 pm
Monday, 5/7 – energy starts to calm 

These next few days are also a great time to check in with the New Moon Wishes you made a few weeks ago and see how much you have manifested... or not. Don't judge, just try to examine them as objectively as possible, try to find what is standing in your way. Most likely it is YOU! This is the best time to get out of your own way, you are being supported by the universe!

Also, don't forget that the full moon is the best way to clean and clear your crystals and minerals. Put them out in the full moon light. I like to let mine sit out through the next day in the sun. 

Happy weekend

Happy Full Moon!
