The Full Moon in Scorpio is an intense time for emotional transformation. An incredibly feminine sign, Scorpio asks you to look directly at your Shadows and find the balance between what they are protecting you from and what they are teaching you. Difficult to do in most circumstances, this moon cycle grants you a boon in that it pairs up the Full Moon, a deeply transformational Moon, with Scorpio, an intensely emotional sign that challenges you to break down barriers. What a perfect time for Shadow work!
This Full Moon has a sister energy to it as well. With the Sun still in Taurus, the energies we’re working with are centred around security and self-worth. While Taurus is concerned about self-definition through use of the material world, Scorpio desires to destroy the material in order to transcend and enter the spiritual realm. Don’t let that dissuade you from working with energies, though. These two are a powerful pair that will help you uncover your weaknesses so that you can destroy them and move forward.
Low vibrations of this powerful energetic signature are evidenced by obsession with resources (for Taurus, this is directly related to bank accounts; for Scorpio it’s about reshaping her mind through forgoing comforts in exchange for growth) as well as underlying fears around security. In a nutshell, the low sides relate directly to feelings of self-worth: Taurus places value on the things collected and Scorpio places value on what other think of her and will pay her, which sometimes involves changing her behavior to meet what she thinks is their standards.
This Full Moon, think about your own feelings around security and self-worth. Are you fearful that you will lose what you have, so you constantly try and get more in order to not go without? Do you measure your success by how many likes you get on social media or by comparing yourself to others?
Meditate on what you need to shift in order to let go of the low energy during this time. Once you have an idea of the things that you need to shift, try a release and gratitude ritual. You can do this however you want; there is no wrong way. The main point is to write down what you need to release: fears around money, relationships, your job, family, self-doubt, whatever it is and then burn the pieces of paper to release each item from your life.
You can be super detailed or write just a line or two. Have a safe place to burn the pieces of paper: I use a mini cauldron that is built to hold charcoal pucks but you can use pretty much anything as long as it’s fire proof and safe. Feed each piece of paper to the flames and watch it burn. Once you have done that, write down all the things you are grateful for. You can choose to keep those as a reminder or burn them as well: it’s all energy and there is no wrong way to do this. Finish with thanking the Universe or Higher Power or who/whatever you are aligned with.
The power of the Scorpio Full Moon is truly awe inspiring. Recognizing the low vibrational energies of this time and working to release these energies is essential in order to move forward with your life’s purpose, whatever that may be. Just remember, your practice is your own and the way you choose to implement these ideas (or not to, if that’s the case), is unique to you and therefore exactly what you need. Trust yourself.

After the chaotic Full Moon in Libra, we could all use a bit of peace and stillness. The New Moon in Taurus is here to provide that stillness by encouraging us to get grounded and be fully present in everything we do, both mundane and magical.
Part of the message of this New Moon is to be fully and completely immersed in each moment, for within that full immersion creativity is crafted. To find the stillness that encourages creativity, we must feel secure in both ourselves and our world around us. This feeling of security comes from knowing our worth and, through that, defining abundance in terms that resonates with us.
Different from self esteem, which is linked to ego and changes depending on situations, people, and circumstances, self worth is connected to our true essence and is essentially what grounds us during trying times. It is the basic building block of abundance, since we cannot feel abundant if we do not feel worthy of it.
Being grounded opens a gateway to attract abundance and creates a cascading effect. When we are grounded and in tune with ourselves, we feel more connected to our self worth which generates feelings of security. The security we feel allows us to invite abundance in, as we are ready and open to receiving more of what we feel we deserve. This can only happen from a place of stillness and grounding.
How do you define abundance? Take some time to decide what an abundant life looks like for you: it might be more free time rather than money, or being able to travel rather than landing the corner office. A good place to start is gratitude. Being grateful for what you already have signals to the Universe that you are open to receiving more. Making a daily list of things you are grateful for is a good way to start preparing yourself for abundance.
Other things to consider when setting yourself up for abundance: clear away the clutter in your space. Donate things no longer being used, thoroughly clean, and make physical room for new things to enter. Note: this does not mean filling it up again right away. This is more of a physical representation of your readiness for more things to enter your life, and not all of them may be tangible items.
Releasing limiting beliefs will also help in welcoming new energies into your space. Try rewriting your personal story with money or relationships or anything that you feel limited in being open to receive more of. While we’re on the topic of release, let go of any scarcity or feelings of competition: there is more than enough for all of us to share.
New Moons are about checking in on previous intentions we have set to see if they are still relevant or need to be either replaced or updated. This would be a great time to set intentions around your worthiness. The power of the Taurus New Moon is the realization that you are your greatest resource. Everything you need in order to achieve your dreams already exists within you and abundance begins by recognizing your own self worth.
