Flower Moon 2011: Full Moon Scorpio

Flower Moon

Full Moon in Scorpio

May 17, 2011

On May 17, 2011 we will have a full moon in Scorpio at 26 degrees, which is in the later degrees of Scorpio.  The later degree in a sign usually symbolizes maturity in that zodiac path. This wonderful illumination will be vibrant at approximately 6:09am EST and 3:09 am PST (6 degree orb).  Dance Scorpio!  

The first new moon in May is also known as “Full Flower Moon”, for the reason by the time the first new moon in May hits the earth orbit, the flowers on earth is plentiful.  But according to farmer’s almanac and other folklore writing it is also known as the Milk Moon.

“Chiron in Pisces helps us to reawaken our intuition during this Full Moon and create alchemy which will trigger us to lance old wounds and attain harmony within ourselves. By connecting with others on a soul level we will achieve spiritual growth and finding answers to our day to day issues that may have been holding us back. Venus in Taurus will rev up our relationships to a new level if we allow the baggage of the past to slip away during this powerful lunation.”~ Susan Selene

But this moon is also quite unique, in many ways it is the last full moon until the Solar eclipse of the sun in Gemini which is paired with eclipses which occurred on December 21, 2010.  Read more about it here. Its time to examine your environment and emotions from the past while asking determining what happened and make magnificent endings and embracing new beginnings.

“May 21st: The Sun enters Gemini.  The Sun’s ingress into communicative Gemini marks its first square to Neptune in Pisces and its first sextile to Uranus in Aries. So much has changed in the first five months of 2011, and three consecutive eclipses from June 1st through July 1st are likely to bring even more beginnings and endings in the weeks ahead. “ Lee Stillwaters

“June 1 we experience a solar eclipse at 11 degrees of Gemini at 5:03 PM EST. Gemini is the natural ruler of the third house of communication and the ruler of Gemini is Mercury the planet of communication. This is a time of critical communication that may change your direction. The Sun trines Saturn on this day creating an industrious energy that can be used to further practical considerations or connect with situations from the past. Eclipses are a powerful energy that can affect us for months, even years to come.” ~Leslie Hale

“Eclipses are about beginnings and endings, and if you are in a relationship that is tottering on the edge it may well end at this time.  The eclipse falls on Uranus in the US chart portending sudden and unexpected events.  Eclipse Author Celeste Teal calls this eclipse, “Something to Cry About””~ Leslie Hale

The full moon in Scorpios is a time for regeneration and rebirth like Phoenix rising from the ashes as will the Scorpios.  Many things our lives are dying so it is time for regeneration.  We are healing past the old and shedding old skin.  This moon is about the Gods, Karma, Sun, the Moon and humans.

In the Buddhist tradition the full moon in Scorpio is known as “Wesak” a time of enlightenment. Scorpions are naturally emotional, intuitional and psychics.  Their nature of picking up signals from people are so intoned that they become sponges to other peoples emotions. These emotions for non Scorpions can be quite dramatic which may cause many people to hide our selves or our feelings pretending everything is ok but it is not.

“The Taurus cycle is at its peak under a fertile Full Moon in Scorpio as transiting Mercury, Venus, and Mars in Taurus form a harmonious trine to Pluto in Capricorn.  Those with an emphasis in the early degrees of earth and water signs are likely to be graced during this period of lunar illumination.” ~ Lee Stillwaters

“Chiron in Pisces helps us to reawaken our intuition during this Full Moon and create alchemy which will trigger us to lance old wounds and attain harmony within ourselves. By connecting with others on a soul level we will achieve spiritual growth and finding answers to our day to day issues that may have been holding us back. Venus in Taurus will rev up our relationships to a new level if we allow the baggage of the past to slip away during this powerful lunation.”~ Susan Selene

When the Moon is full, the pressure between the moon and sun creates a gravitational pull of the bodies of water which directly can be linked to pressures in humans. For those who are in the same sign as the full moon is being magnified it may directly affect the moods.  There is absolutely no doubt that this moon will create an inner and outer pull of energy that may make some of us quite irritable.

Scorpios and those that have any houses in Scorpio it is time to magnify those houses. It is the most philosophical time of the year it’s the spotlight of the Phoenix. Its time to let go of things that does not fit your passion, the world is watching you release the desire and put on a mask that is fit just for you. Keep silence, keep focus, and keep centered.  It will get a little weird. Remember its all in the attitude. And know and understand the psychic and powers of the Scorpio is often feared and respected there is nothing in between.

There is a greater need in during this full moon energy to feel sheltered and steady.  Because of this there may be certain aggression, assertion and anger that will bring out the most vivid part in all of us.  There is a great need to express the deeper level of our conciseness, but there is a greater need to remain calm if someone tries to tap on to your energy.

Full moon in Scorpio will definitely bring out the stinger even if they are not Scorpios.  This experience can be felt as early as 3 days before the exact full moon and 3 days after.  Emotions will be intense and issues will come out which were not brought up before.  There is a need to allow the experience to flow, but to use collaboration instead of assertiveness.

The full moon in Scorpio may cause some communication and ego centric attitudes and group activities may not go over very well only because everything and everyone may be irritating or irritable. Most of the issues that will cause these disruptive behaviors may have to do with sex, conception, birth and rebirth of nature and nurture.  It may even be about money and signing of contract, be sure to read it before you sign anything though mercury is already direct, therefore there nothing hidden.

Everything during the full moon will be intensified, egos will be high and inflated and there may be a greater need for relationships.  During this full moon there are greater chances to have many stunning dreams and bleeding and hemorrhaging through clumsiness or laziness may cause problems so take care.

This is the time to Harvest, Pray and be Thankful, and to work on fertility and prosperity.  Love and Romance go wild under a Full Moon, especially around midnight. In a full moon you may become highly objective, clear minded and aware of your own needs and the needs of others.

Plants and herbs were harvested and dried as the richness of the first harvest was realized.. As ripe berries were gathered and used for paints, dyes and as a source of Vitamin C. Health and creativity are emphasized and there is a sense of well-being and drama to this lunation.

All Scorpions has been going through a very difficult transit especially within the last 3 years.  Scorpions will now become a bit realistic, money oriented, and relationships will no longer be based upon physical plane but emotional and spiritual stability.  Any Scorpios that are born in October will now let go of the past (relationships or burdens) and embrace a joyful conjunction of the spiritual world.

If you are on the dating scene than expect your love life to enhance by June or July where you will shine!  You’ll not only be looking ahead with a fresh perspective, but you’ll feel more optimistic about life than you have for ages. This moon in very interesting; Like all Scorpios who love to dig and investigative this moon triggers those senses; it forces to get to the bottom of things of what is really going on.  Its time for psychic revelations.

When the moon is in Scorpio, we become more accustomed to concealed or mysterious influences and our psychic antennas may be activated. This is a time for working to maintain poignant behavior patters and for working on overcoming inner fixation thoughts or desires. There can be a need for recognizing habits and reactions that keep you locked in power struggles. This Full moon is most favorable for seeking assistance from your divine center and Higher Power to gently release your self from inner negativities. Emotional Power is the focus.

The Moon in Scorpio marks a time of intensified enthusiasm and longing. People may be feeling more self-assured and more challenging, as well as being provoked and inventive. In general, emotions at both ends of the spectrum are heightened and likely to vary quite a bit throughout this influence. Connections on a deep level could be made with members of the opposite sex with the Moon in Scorpio. Represented by the Scorpion, Scorpio possesses an enigmatic and penetrative nature. Feelings of envy and vengeance may arise, so special caution is needed to avoid disagreements. The Scorpio Full Moon can be a vehicle for power urge, which can often result in hostility or even dangerous impulses

Since, moon in Scorpio represents Headstrong, Willful, Hot-Tempered, Brave, and Energetic it is my suggestion for us to remain balanced.  This full moon is extraordinary to many signs. It is my suggestion that you purchase a white candle and carve your name one through the wick.  Anoint the candle with lavender oil sandalwood and chant the psalm 39.  You may also choose to recite a mantra every morning until the next moon cycle. Remember that with all applications of psalms and mantras achieving the desired result is depended upon the quality of intention, and when it comes to finding satisfying relationships, it is of the greatest importance to begin with a clear understanding of what your goal should be. The mantras can be hard to pronounce for many but it is a powerful source of energy the mantra for Scorpio moon is:

“Om Angarakaya Namaha”

(Om An-ga-ra-ka-ya Na-ma-ha)

 This mantra is to call to the lord of peace and removal of any obstacles in your way. The intention of this mantra is the to keep up in balance from loosing our temper through darkness and unfocused energy.

With every moon cycle, remember to cross out the old affirmation even if there is a slightest change and create new ones. The perfect number for aspiration is 10.  This means to list 10 aspirations and recite them every night until the next moon cycle.  Remember never make the affirmations beginning with “I need”, it must be worded “I will need to be shown how to retain”

Please remember I am NOT a Astrologer nor do I claim to be one, rather, I am a Vedic Sanskrit Reader who encompasses Astrology as a utility as basis of the reading and surrounds the magnificent transformational destiny and Karma reading as a conclusion to all readings.  One can easily create cohesion between Vedic readings and a Western Astrology.  I would really suggest that you make an appointment with my featured astrologers such as Lee Stillwaters , Leslie Hale, or Susan Selene and  find out how things are about to unfold, take good notes, then get a Vedic Reading so that you are able understand and adapt to transformational changes for your own destined path.

Many people have asked the question how often they should have a reading done by a physic or a tarot reader.  In my opinion an in depth reading should be done every moon cycle.  Since, every moon cycle represents a change it not only affects our external forces but our internal forces as well.  Of course, we all have burning questions every now and then and it maybe necessary to have a reading done more often, but sometime we have to let universe take its course.  When dealing with a tragic situation it is my suggestion that before you have a reading done you must clear away negativity and fear from your emotions so that a reader can give you the clearest reading possible.   The clearest answers can be given when energy is at a neutral point.  Never get a reading with your energy is scattered because you may not receive the best reading possible.  This is the main reason why many readers do not go beyond the 3 to 6 months mark.

Wishing you the most irresistible moon ever and I hope you hold your hands together and Namaste the universe for all its simple pleasures.

Namaste

Mercury Retrograde April/May 2010

 

Mercury Retrograde

April 04, 2010-May 28, 2010

On April 18, 2010, Mercury turns retrograde at 12 degrees in Taurus. Mercury retrograde is best known to sending communications, missed appointments, mail and the www into a general snarlup! This awkward period lasts for three weeks or so, until May 11, 2010.  It finally straightens out on May 28, 2010, bringing things back to normal.  Though many people will state that Mercury will go away on May 11, 2010, one must understand that Mercury is a slow moving planet (almost like a slow locomotive).

Keep in mind that Mercury Shadow begins three weeks before the actual moving backwards in time and the shadow phase began approximately April 04, 2010.

When Mercury is retrograde, everyone’s judgment is more meditative and we tend to think about issues and concerns that relate to the sign involved. With Mercury retrograde in Taurus, people with this sign prominent in their charts will be particularly prone to such introspection. Additionally, because Mercury is moving into a fix sign of Taurus Fixed signs (Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius) will not be excluded.  Even though Mercury is in the fixed signs, usually Mercury rules Gemini, Virgo and Pisces therefore those who have their sun sign in Gemini, Virgo or Pisces or prominent in their chart will also be affected.  It does not have to be negative aspects some people say that Taurus will defiantly love the retrograde period.  But all others may be challenged.

During Mercury retrograde there is little choice but to reassess our individual views and opinions about existence. There is, however, an opportunity to expand insight into our own self-image. When mercury is retrograding in the signs of Taurus favors exhibition, tangible answers and essential perception where theories are a necessary tool for understanding.  Mercury retrograde creates a mental and emotional focus on self autonomy, love with freedom.  People attitude may change and may be inclined to be very obstinate and judgmental. The big temptation will be to pressure people into sharing the same mind-set.

Since Taurus refers to values and those things that are a natural art of the system such as food, shelter and clothing.  Mercury in Taurus brings information which provides review of such items and values we place on them.  Finances will be things that will become a key element which impacts the revision.  Some people may adjust their financial goals and find a different means of financial structure.   Mercury retrograde does NOT mean that you must stop the projects you have in mind rather take the time to perfect it but be sure not to sign contracts or get your self involved in legal issues because it is a guarantee it will be revisited before the next retrograde.

A planet is described as retrograde when it appears to be moving backwards through the zodiac. This traditional concept arises in the illusory planetary motion created by the orbital rotation of the earth, with relation to other planets in our solar system. Planets are never actually retrograde or stationary, they just seem that way, due to this optical illusion.  Retrograde periods, although often problematic for us earthlings, are not particularly uncommon. Each planet retrogrades, except the Sun and Moon. Mercury, much like the winged messenger of the gods, comes in on feather-light wings and commands us to speak.

Communication, intellect and awareness are all within Mercury’s domain, as are logic and reasoning, our manner of thinking, and how we create and express our thought processes. A mercurial nature brings to mind restlessness and motion. Rat-a-tat-tat — things happen fast here. Mercury is about a quick wit, quick thinking, possibilities, opinions, reasoning and the ability to rationalize things. Mercurial energy can be good or bad, but it will certainly be energizing! This Planet also prompts us to move from one thing to the next and to get answers on both a physical and psychological level. Further, Mercury’s energy is both dexterous and perceptive. Mercury is about short trips: a visit to a neighbor or a friend across town, the workaday commute, and a weekend getaway. Siblings, and transportation in general, are also within Mercury’s realm. Speaking, writing, books, online communications and learning are all within Mercury’s domain. This Planet implores us to express ourselves often — and well.

Because Mercury rules communication and transportation, these two areas are most influenced during a Mercury Retrograde. Conversations might be more difficult, as crossed signals and unclear meanings confuse normally straightforward discussions. Still, with a little caution and consideration, you’ll get your point across. Similarly, be prepared with a back-up plan when you’re traveling. If your flight gets canceled or your car won’t start, remain calm and make the best of it. Who knows — you might not have met that fascinating new person in the airport lobby or bus stop if you had taken your flight or driven to work…
Remember, we can use this powerful energy in positive ways. Use this time to do activities that start with “re”: renew, repair, review, renegotiate, and research…

In general, Mercury rules thinking and perception, processing and disseminating information and all means of communication, commerce and transportation. By extension, Mercury rules people who work in these areas, especially people who work with their minds or their wits: writers and orators, commentators and critics, gossips and spin doctors, tricksters and thieves.  Mercury retrograde gives rise to personal misunderstandings; flawed, disrupted, or delayed communications, negotiations and   trade; glitches and breakdowns with phones, computers, cars, buses, and trains. And all of these problems usually arise because some crucial piece of information, or component, has gone astray, or awry.

When Mercury is retrograde, everyone’s thinking is more introspective and we tend to think about issues and concern that relate to the sign involved.  Artistic tendencies including crafts, music, art or design tend to be blocked by circumstances beyond one’s control. Legal matters will proceed slowly and unforeseen obstacles tend to emerge. Mercury retrograde tends to lack depth of perception and has no patience for detailed analysis. All areas of communication are affected. Methods and motivation for learning, communication and transportation are subject to difficulties under this aspect. It brings travel snafus and missed appointments of all kinds.

The good things to do when Mercury is Retrograde: meditate, contemplate, edit the book/poem/song/essay you’ve been writing, clean house, talk to your pet, listen to music, paint, catch up on sleep!  Since, mercury is a very slow moving planet and it effect almost all planetary signs .It is my suggestion that you purchase a yellow candle and carve your name through the wick.  Anoint the candle with Inspiration oil or Eucalyptus oil and chant the psalm 70 every single night.

This period will last for 3 weeks and it will be hard on all of us.  This will allow friendly communications as well as understandings in situations. You may also choose to recite a mantra every morning until May 11.  Remember that with all applications of psalms and mantras achieving the desired result is depended upon the quality of intention, and when it comes to finding satisfying relationships, it is of the greatest importance to begin with a clear understanding of what your goal should be.

The mantras can be hard to pronounce for many but it is a powerful source of energy I have chosen two mantras for you during this mercury retrograde:

“Om Budhaya Namaha”

(Om Bood-han-yah Nahm-ah-ha)

“Om and salutations to Buddha, presiding spirit of planet mercury”

This mantra is used to achieve mental clarity, to avoid and overcome misunderstandings and keep friendly communications flowing. Many people have asked the question how often they should have a reading done by a physic or a tarot reader.  In my opinion an in depth reading should be done every moon cycle.

Please remember I am NOT a Astrologer nor do I claim to be one, rather, I am a Vedic Sanskrit Reader who encompasses Astrology as a utility as basis of the reading and surrounds the magnificent transformational destiny and Karma reading as a conclusion to all readings.

If you are looking for how Mercury Retrograde will affect you personally, please consult my Astrological Gurus : Lee Stillwaters Or my Boss Sparrowmoon . Make sure you let them know I sent you to them and perhaps they can discount your reading but please keep in mind they are quite busy and therefore, discount is not guaranteed rather quality service is.
