Fiery full moon in Sagittarius, the great seeker and explorer. If you’re feeling feisty and restless, blame it on the moon! Even Lady Liberty is a bit hot under the collar right now.
This is a great time to explore a place you’ve never been before — that is, if you have been released from strict quarantine in your state. If you cannot get out and about, think about using this sacred full moon time to explore a topic that intrigues you.
Become an intrepid explorer. Expand your wisdom and awareness now.
Whatever you do over the next few days, try to keep your mood set to calm, cool and chillax.
Full moon in Scorpio, the queen of watery, emotional depths. Raw, wild emotion is all around us.
Yes, life is chaotic and difficult to fathom right now. Yes, reality is shifting. And yes, you probably want to crawl under the covers and stay there for a good long while. Quite understandable in these crazy times.
Spiral into the heart of whatever you are feeling. Simply breathe and stay with your feelings. Allow yourself to be present with whatever comes up. Breathe and feel it all.
The way out is through.
New moon in watery Pisces, the dreamer. You may find your emotions running high right now. The emotional waters of Pisces run deep.
Give yourself permission to be emotional. Offer kindness and love to yourself even though you may feel vulnerable and raw. Your heart is big enough to hold it all – the yummy, the scary, the sad, the beautiful and the tender. Breathe and allow it all.
Now is the time to dream big; explore whatever you wish to create in your world. Focus energy there. Make time to dream about the future you desire.
I offer this poem as an antidote to the political tempest we find ourselves in right now…
Today is neither the beginning
nor the end of the world,
much sadness and happiness
still wait behind the curtain.
If you are one on the Way,
do not lose heart if the distance
seems too far, or the time too long,
for you are the ancient wayfarer
whose real home is love,
and each step you take here
must be marked by your blood.
If water remains still
it is swallowed by the earth;
but if it keeps on moving
the river becomes the sea.
~Hooshang Ebtehaaj, Iran
Poem translated by Salvi Asefi & David Hunter
Full moon in Taurus, the earthy, sensual one. This moon beckons you to reach for physical pleasures. Meanwhile, the Sun in Scorpio wants you to dive deep into your feelings. The question is, can you do both?
Create a sensory experience for yourself; explore yummy foods, scents that call to you, beautiful tunes, sensual touch, joyful movement… Get lusciously physical.
Pause and notice the emotions that surface when you treat yourself this way. Is there a part of you that pushes pleasure away? Will you allow yourself to have just a little more pleasure?
