Welcome to My Moon Guide where you can find help in using the energy of cycles to make your life better. This Full Moon Releasing Cycle of the Scorpio Full Moon begins May 15(9:15 PM PDT) with a lunar eclipse and ends May 30(4:20 AM PDT), with the Gemini New Moon. Each half of the Moon cycle lasts about 14 days. Like the breath, cycles alternate in quality between building and releasing. Using the law of cycles assists us in being present and in harmony with our inner and outer world.
For this Full Moon the Sun is in Taurus and the Moon is in Scorpio. Taurus is fixed in the element of earth and Scorpio is in the element of water. The illumination of the Moon by the Sun allows us to see and identify the qualities, habits, patterns, and behaviors of that Moon sign so we can release what has ceased to be of benefit, no longer serves us, or is blocking our progress. Good work now will bring real benefit in the manifesting cycle of the Scorpio New Moon next autumn. I have some information and suggestions on the page USING THE MOON to help you make good use of this special time.
This Moon is a special one for many reasons. It is the Wesak celebration that is special in the Buddhist tradition. Buddha’s Feast celebrates the birth and/or the day of enlightenment of the Buddha. In some esoteric traditions it celebrates the merging of the energies of Love and Wisdom and the coming together of the Buddha and the Christ and the release of positive energy to those on earth who serve the Divine.
For this Moon, Mercury is retrograde guiding us to move deeper and reflect on our thought and communication processes and family legacy (Mercury is in Gemini for this part of the retrograde). And there is a lunar eclipse drawing our attention to reflection and review. Mars and Neptune are uniting to support those who serve and work for the benefit of all humankind.
USING THE MOON will give you ideas to best use this releasing cycle in ways designed to help bring freedom from habits, attitudes, behaviors, and beliefs that block passion and keep your dreams from becoming reality. It's our time to cooperate with the Law of Abundance through truth telling, clear sight, dissemination, forgiveness, and letting go. Just follow along with USING THE MOON and notice how life begins to change for the better.
MOON INFO will guide you to finding the Moon and connecting with nature in a special and powerful way. ASTRONEWS is a quick way to get an idea of where the various planets are and the energy that might be affecting us. I don't have a current pod cast right now but keep checking.
I do hope you will take this time to join with likeminded groups that come together at the time of the Full Moon in a spirit of service to ground the incoming energy of Love and Wisdom.
