Life/Death/Rebirth - The Invitation of a Scorpion Moon
The arrival of our current Scorpio energy centers around the life/death/rebirth cycle and the journeys we have with our souls callings, karmic lessons, key relationships, potent transformations, sensuality, our shadows and reclaiming aspects of our true Self.
Emotions may feel heightened, intuition amplified, and we may find ourselves desiring deeper and more expanded levels of connection, empowerment, and new ways of being. We may sense our misalignments rising up from our depths, yearning to be acknowledged. And a familiar sense of knowning, that our suffering is tethered to the wounded parts of us that long to be healed.
Over the coming days and transitioning into this weeks' new moon, we can harness the potent energy of Scorpio’s illuming light as a cosmic invitation to leverage new awareness around the aspects of ourselves that are longing for our attention and tending.
Rather than look away, we can observe what is clearly being shown to us, and listen deeply to the wisdom of our disharmony in terms of insights, guidance and medicine. We can give ourselves permission to feel our feelings fully and allow them to be acknowledged and heard. We can make room and time for ourselves to reflect on what is shedding. What ways of being, situations, and relationships feel tight, restrictive, or outgrown. We can gently release the grip of our attachments to the things that are clearly not working for us. And we can choose to hold our own hand and heart to move through, rather than avoid, our discomfort, our sadness, and our disappointments, knowing that this too is a natural part of the cycle of life, and that renewal, and transformation and expansions always follow, once the discomfort of our contractions have passed.
The process of transformation is never a straight line. It can be messy, difficult, and can ask a lot of ourselves to trust in what is yet unseen. Like the snake shedding its skin, we often have to push up against obstacles, projections, distractions, even our own self-sabotage in order to break free and emerge anew. After the challenging work of letting something go, we may find ourselves raw, sensitive, vulnerable, uncertain, and unfamiliar with our newness. During times of expansion, it’s normal for us to reach around for the familiar, the comfortable and the old ways of being, as we navigate our still unfolding becoming. Getting comfortable with what comes next is often a journey in itself. Tending to our deepest needs, listening to the guidance of our heart’s higher intelligence, trusting our soul’s inner whisperings, and courageously acting on our intuitive guidance when prompted will yield a newfound intimacy with ourselves and an innate confidence and trust in knowing we're walking along a path that feels so very true for us. A path that leads to profound healing, personal expansion, liberation, and opportunities that reflect the shimmer of our innate magnificence
Scorpio energy offers us the awareness, the protective portal and the cosmic nudge for us to "go there", to face off, honor and embrace our own reflections and truths. To bow in deep gratitude for the experiences and learnings of all that feels complete, for the knowings and affirmations they have shown us, and how they’ve served in the preparation for our beautiful new becoming. What magical new threshold awaits your arrival?
