On Sunday, April 29, the Moon is Full in the sign of Scorpio. What does this mean? When the Moon is Full, energy is brought to a maximum, many times pushing our limits on our abilities to handle the intensity of light in our lives. Scorpio is the sign of sex, death, and regeneration symbolized by the Scorpion, the Phoenix, and the Eagle. Each are totems of strength in their own right.

The New Moon in Taurus will be on May 15, which will be a very grounding times to till the soil and plant seeds of growth for the summer growing cycle. As we come into the Full Moon, it is important to find your meditative center and discover how you have grown and evolved over the past year, and since the New Moon in Scorpio last October. In the past 6 months, how have you purged negative belief patterns? How have you grown from negative experiences? How have you gained strength through trials and tribulations? What do you need to release and remove from your life in order to maintain your personal peace? As the Moon wanes to New, each day offers a way to release this energy, burning away our past and fertilizing the soil for our new seeds of hope. Dreams will be especially potent and telling at this time. Dream journaling and divination is encouraged at this time. If consulting a reader, be sure to trust your intuition, not everyone may have your best interest in mind. No reading or divination will ever give you the full pictures, only visions and images that will help bring positive change into your life.
