Full Moon in Scorpio May 10th, 2017
Sign Element: Water
Moon Age: 14.5 Days
Phase: Full/Mother Phase
Season/Moon Name: Flower/Milk Moon
It's that time once again to release the things that no longer serve us! I really enjoy the Full Moon Rituals because it's the best time to rid yourself of excess weight that you've been carrying around. The reason why this is a super important step is because it will allow us the space to bring in the things we WANT to have in our life!
This past Moon Cycle has been amazing! I really do enjoy working with the energy of the Moon and letting the Universe help guide and direct me on my path. This will be the half way point to finishing my studies I picked up on during the past New Moon. I official will be done with my class Moon Phases 101 with The MoonSisterhood in a few more weeks when the Moon becomes New yet again. I wanted to do this process because as we all know, every good witch continues to study their craft. I have enjoyed moon charting again and plan to try to incorporate this into my everyday life. When you moon chart, it's when you really get to see how each phase and zodiac of the moon ....how it effects you physically, mentally, emotionally.
WHAT TO EXPECT WITH A
FULL MOON IN SCORPIO??
Scorpio is a water sign. Water signs are very intuitive and sensitive individuals who are emotional. There is nothing wrong with being sensitive, or emotional.. but when the Moon is in Scorpio you will feel these effects stronger than usual for yourself.
This is a good time to really focus on self-control and self-limitations. It's not a good time to argue or get into a disagreement. Make sure your mindful of this and it shouldn't be an issue. Mood swings and irritability can come up during this time, try to keep everything in check. When we can spot our shadow side coming out during this time...take notice of it. If we can spot our shadow sides, it's the best way to bring attention to them so we can fix them. Remember, what we project outward is what we get back three fold.... so when your mood swings conjure up to the surface, take a few deep breaths and try to change your mood to something more positive.
When the Moon is in Scorpio, you might feel some laziness coming on. You might also fall victim of negative influences. Just make note of these feelings as they come and try to re-shift your focus if it happens to you.
PEOPLE BORN WHEN MOON
IS IN SCORPIO...
If you were born when the Moon is in Scorpio, the things listed above will affect you the most strongly. People born when the Moon is in Scorpio can be hyper, and have a way to rapidly change their emotions causing frequent mood swings. The best way they can combat this, is by expressing their emotions openly. By doing this, they will stay more balanced. They tend to be pessimists, but at the same time have the tendency to self-improve and analysis themselves. Being aware of these things is the best way to improve them for the better.
SEASON OF THE MOON:
April showers bring May Flowers. Have you heard of that saying before? Well, as the seasons are getting ready to shift from Spring into Summer you have what is known as the Flower Moon approaching us this Full Moon on May 10th, 2017.
You might notice that our Full Flower Moon will be in the sky for a shorter than normal period than the Sun. The reason why is because the Full Moon is will travel a shorter path from horizon to horizon this time as it rises and sets.
Another name for this Moon Season is the Milk Moon. You might think this is associated with Cows... but it's not. Our Native American ancestors called it the Milk Moon because there was a lot of Milkweeds popping up all over during this time (May to June).
