All my life, I’ve been intrigued by Astrology. It has truly become the cusp of my concentration since beginning my metaphysical and Spiritual journey. That is why I am so excited to talk about the closely approaching Full Moon in Scorpio. We are currently getting through the Taurus Sun, and opposite of Taurus sits the intensely mysterious and compulsive Scorpio. You can expect a lot from this Full Moon, which will be at its maximum visibility on Saturday, May 18.
The zodiac sign Scorpio is known to be one of the most intense and mysterious signs of all the Zodiac. It is a water sign, and like its Cardinal and Mutable counterparts, those born under the Fixed sign are highly intuitive. Scorpios are known to be impulsive, doing things more so for the experience rather than for financial or powerful gain. Scorpios are very emotionally intense creatures but can also have a hard, impenetrable shell which can make them very hard to read. Because of this, Scorpios tend to avoid dealing with their own problems and deep-rooted traumas. Scorpios are known to be healers to some, however, have a hard time in areas of self-love because they have a hard time dealing with their own Shadows.
A Full Moon in Scorpio will affect people differently, depending on how Scorpio interacts with you in your own life. If you were born under the Scorpio Sun (October 23-Nov 21), you can expect the Full Moon to affect anything dealing with your personality and ego. If you were born under a Scorpio Moon, you can expect the Full Moon to affect your emotional state and your psychic nature. If you were born under a Scorpio Ascendant, you can expect this Full Moon to deal with the root of any problem you are not trying to face.
So, what can we do to get through the Full Moon in Scorpio? How can we use this energy to help us expand our thinking while increasing our metaphysical abilities?
First and foremost, as this Full Moon approaches DO NOT HIDE YOUR EMOTIONS FROM YOURSELF. This moon can force some uncomfortable trauma to the surface of our minds. This is a great time to get to the root of the problems you may not be facing. Do not give yourself shallow answers. You need to be real with yourself. Allow this Full Moon Energy to give you the strength to ask yourself the difficult questions and receive the painful answers. You could also do some Shadow Work after this full moon to follow-up with any work you may to this night. Release the pain. Don’t hold on to it.
If you have been having a hard time focusing, the Full Moon in Scorpio is a great time to work on sharpening your mind. During the Full Moon, grab a piece of Clear Quartz and/or Green Calcite and charge them under the Full Moon. While charging, meditate under the Full Moon. If you are working on any projects, meditate on that project. If you’re having hard time focusing in general, clear your mind and ask Spirit to help you focus. Meditate under the Full Moon for at least 10 minutes and continue charging your crystals through the night. Carry the Clear Quartz and Calcite with you whenever you are doing something that needs your complete focus. They will help you maintain concentration and complete your tasks and goals.
Full Moon in Scorpio means an increase in subconscious activity and psychic ability. Your mind will be opening itself up to you during this Full Moon. Your emotions will also be very high around this time. During this time of high emotional energy, try not to project your emotions onto others. This can be difficult when your energy is being amplified by the influence of the Full Moon, but make sure you are taking time to meditate and be present. This will help with any feelings of confusion.
Overall, Full Moon in Scorpio is an exciting time of self-discovery, self-love, and increased intimacy with others and with self. On the evening of May 18, we will have an opportunity to travel through the waters of our authentic selves. My hope is that we all, along with the help of the Scorpio Full Moon, become the best versions of our magical selves.

As the year 2018 comes to a close and we begin to come into a time of family, friends and fellowship, our beautiful planet is preparing us for an annual restart. Yes Magical Beings, we have made it to this wonderful, most joyous time of the year where our beautiful world is forever changing, physically and metaphorically transforming into what will be new life full of new intentions and potential. The mystery of the Winter Solstice is that of rebirth.
On Friday, December 21, 2018 we will be walking into the Winter Solstice. on this day, the earth will be tilted in its axis in such a way that the Northern Hemisphere will experience the shortest period of daylight and the longest night of the year. This Winter Solstice also happens in the Southern Hemisphere on June 21, while we are experience our Summer Solstice (Longest Day Of Summer).
The Winter Solstice is also known as the Hibernal Solstice, Midwinter, or Yule (Yuletide) which is a festival that was observed by the Historical Germanic people. Yule was known as a festival to celebrate the start of the new solar year. Coincidentally, the Cardinal sign, Capricorn, begins on December 21.
So what is the importance of the Winter Solstice? How can we as Light Workers, Divine Healers and Practioners of Magick learn from the Winter Solstice?
First, we must understand the nature of the Solstice. The word "Solstice" literally means "sun stands still". On December 21, our perception of the Sun from the Earth will be just that; still. Also, with this day signifying the start of Capricorn, which is a Cardinal Sign, we are learning that this the beginning of a rebirth. during the Winter season, the cold comes in makes all life stand still. it puts all of nature in a place where it must sit and observe, wait patiently for its time to reemerge. Winter time is not meant for socialization or travel. it is meant for preparation.
Capricorn is the last cardinal sign in the zodiac, marking the beginning of the end. This marks a period of patience and preparation. The Winter Solstice should be used as a period of introspection; a time to take inventory of one's self, rid yourself unhealthy and unnecessary traits, and open yourself to the newness of the new year.
So as we approach the Solar New Year, don't take on too much. If you're looking to do some self-love work on yourself, create a business plan, study up on spiritual matters, the Winter Solstice would be a great time to set those intentions. With introspection comes meditation. Find a warm, cozy area in your home where you can escape and meditate for a bit. even if you only have 5 minutes a day, try to be consist in your meditation during this time. if you have an alter, you can honor this Winter Solstice by including Winter Aesthetics unto your alter. Snowflakes, blue and White Candles, Pine Cones and Cinnamon Incense work perfectly. you dont have to spend a ton of money on alters supplies either. THE DOLLAR STORE IS YOUR FRIEND lol.
