Full Moon in Scorpio Reading | May 2017

The Full Moon in Scorpio is a phase of powerful intensity, so be prepared for a little shake-up come Wednesday.

Although many think of such energy as “way too much,” it serves an important purpose in helping us live our truth. It says, “This is who I am, this is what I need, and I’m going to do what I have to do to get what I need, so help me goddess.” As the inimitable Walt Whitman would say, “I sound my barbaric YAWP over the roofs of the world.” If you’ve been having difficulty finding your voice, now’s the time to meditate on your throat chakra and coax your truest thoughts and opinions into being–this phase will be right there to support you through it.

The cards that appear in this reading–The Lovers, the Nine of Wands, and the Page of Swords–support this notion of boldness, intensity, and empowerment completely. The Lovers directs our attention to the potential for a deep, penetrating connection with someone, one that momentarily transcends mundane thoughts and concerns. Don’t be afraid to lean into this experience as it finds you, and don’t feel pressured to sustain it if it isn’t something you’re looking to sustain. Do allow yourself to experience the fullness of the moment–it’s not often one gets the opportunity to feel someone’s vibe so deeply, and the experience is life-affirming.

The Nine of Swords asks us to locate the fiery passion within and to follow its divine trajectory. So often we’re so intent on pursuing our agenda that we stifle/ignore/repress a desire when it sparks. Yet, through listening to the messages these sparks ignite in us, we’re better able to carve a path that deeply resonates with who we are and what our soul truly wants.

The Page of Swords is one of my favorite tarot archetypes–strongly opinionated, he speaks his mind with the conviction of one who places ideas and ideals at the forefront of his paradigm. He asks you to get up on your soapbox and tell the masses (or friends, or family members) exactly how you feel about that, make no mistake. Channel his energy to make an announcement, speak up for yourself, and get the ball rolling in the direction you’d like it to go. He affirms that this Full Moon is all about agency, integrity, and courage, and who couldn’t use a bit more of that?

Much Love and a Happy Full Moon,
