Super Blood Moon Total Lunar Eclipse, 15/16th May at 25 degrees. The Path To Destiny.
Eclipses are some of the most dramatic tools that the Universe uses to get us to pay attention to areas in our life that need to change in order to make a course correction towards our destined path. They can often uproot us, surprise us, and get us moving at an accelerated pace so that we can move from one level of maturity to another, to a higher plane, and they work very rapidly.
The Sun in Taurus illuminates the Full Moon in Scorpio in opposition, during the Lunar Eclipse, the Earth casts a shadow onto the Moon. As the Earth’s shadow blocks the light to the Moon, something similar takes place best likened to a restart to our computer. A reboot, a reprogramming takes place.
Eclipses come in pairs every 6 months, the first Solar Eclipse on the 30th April was both dynamic and active, dramatically showing us where something needs to change. A time of new opportunities, one door opening and another one closing.
This second Eclipse by contrast, illuminates something buried and hidden in your subconscious that can suddenly come to light, especially on an emotional level, as the Full Moon rules our emotions.
Something that has been blocking us, perhaps for many years and even lifetimes that’s stopping us from being true to ourselves and finding happiness and hinders us from embracing new opportunities that can take us to the next level of our destined path and happiness. Our true feelings will be revealed.
Whatever comes up, leading up to the eclipse or shortly after, pay close attention to it and trust the process.
This Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio, can provide the necessary catalyst to overcome any emotional blocks, circumstances or obstacles. Outdated and limiting ways of thinking and belief systems can suddenly be “burnt” out of existence. Replacing our limiting ways of thinking with new expansive visions, breaking the chains of our old way of being, that no longer align with the new emerging person you have become. Helping us to live the full magnificence of our true potential.
There is a gold mine within you from which you can extract everything you need to live life, gloriously, joyously, and abundantly.
You can bring into your life more power, more wealth, more health, and more happiness by learning to contact and release the hidden power of your subconscious mind.
The Scorpio Lunar Eclipse possesses the strongest potential for deep regeneration and renewal of mind, body and soul. Deeply transformational and empowering, as Pluto the ruler of the Eclipse makes a positive aspect, we can connect within and access our inner souls wisdom, power and strength.
It’s time to reclaim our power.
The Sun conjunct the North Node of fate in Taurus is our guiding North Star, it points to the next phase in our evolutionary journey so that we can move towards a life of greater abundance, harmony, stability and peace.
Collectively and personally we are moving away from the pain and drama represented by the South Node in Scorpio, the Moon conjunct the South Node can feel like a quantum shift away from past hurts, fear, loss and power and abandonment issues. Refusing to entertain the old pain and stepping out of never ending karmic and emotional patterns. We will be releasing and healing karmic contracts and emotional trauma including trauma handed down from generation to generation.
These themes are being further magnified by Venus in Aries conjunct Chiron the wounded healer and Saturn square the Eclipse. A karmic turning point, helping us to let go of what is causing us pain and heal with greater self-love and create healthier boundaries. Deep healing is available to us, as Mars conjunct Neptune in Pisces makes a flowing aspect to the Eclipse.
One of the biggest karmic learning lessons of Scorpio is how to learn to let go and trust the process.
“Once you realize you deserve better, letting go will be the best decision ever.“You can love them, forgive them, want good things for them…but still move on without them.”-Mandy Hale
On a collective level ,humanity is at a cross road, as we witness how governments and people around us are still holding onto dysfunctional, patriarchal, destructive power at the price of freedom and humanitarian progressiveness represented by Saturn in Aquarius square to the eclipse and the north and south Node.
Eclipses are always close the the North and South nodes of fate and are a karmic time during or around the time of the Eclipse (two week window) when Karmic groups of people often come together and new people and loves can come into our lives that match our vibration while some soul karmic contracts will need to be released.
Relationships that don’t support freedom and growth, but keep the status quo at all costs out of fear, will be under critical review as Venus conjunct Chiron desires relationships based on more emotional maturity, responsibility, honesty instead of unhealthy dependencies and a more conscious level of relating.
We may become more aware now, about why we attract and choose the wrong relationships, especially if it’s because we don’t value ourselves enough and we feel lacking in self-worth and love.
Once we learn to live from a healthy ego and self-love, everything begins to fall into place. We attract and can keep healthy friendships and relationships.
Scorpio rules evolution and transformation, the very essence and meaning of life, Everything is made up of energy, of movement. Nothing is static in this world, not even the universe. Everything is in a state of perpetual motion and expansion. We will effortlessly be able to flow with the magic of transformation in our lives instead of resisting change. Jupiter now in Aries helps us with faith and courage to let the experience unfold. Harnessing change is the most valuable tool available for creating the reality that you desire.
Everything is changeable, everything appears and disappears; there is no blissful peace until one passes beyond the agony of impermanence. – Buddha
At a deeper level, Taurus-Scorpio teaches us that true inner security is all that remains when ultimately everything else is taken away. When we only have ourselves to rely on. Have we cultivated our spirituality, inner sense of self-worth, strength and love? Do we feel empowered with a deep faith and trust in life and ourselves that will carry us through anything that life may throw in our path?
When we know we can rely upon and trust ourselves fully in any situation our fears and unhealthy attachments will fall away. We can now become aware of just how great our personal power is and where it lies. We have an opportunity now to correct any imbalance of our personal power, especially if we have been giving it away.
It’s time to restore an inner sense of balance and harmony. Reconnect with inner peace and serenity and a renewed sense of purpose.
Let the Love and Peace that dwells within take center stage.
Taurus in her highest form can show us how to achieve a feeling of self-love and self-value, inner security and groundedness by learning to appreciate what we have and to be satisfied with “enough. To be in the present and find happiness in the simple things of life as opposed to the addictive high of drama that Scorpio often looses himself in.
To embrace the joy of simplicity in our lives.
“Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment”. -Buddha
Buddha had the same polarity of Taurus/Scorpio sun and moon in his natal chart. He eventually reached the state of bliss and enlightenment by releasing and transcending the desire of attachments and the physical-self, by developing the desire for self-knowledge and spirituality.
Enlightenment – the awakening of insight that happens in yourself and is independent of others – makes it possible to create an everlasting world of beauty and harmony, the home of Nirvana.
The Taurus-Scorpio axis is the most spiritually transformative sign of the zodiac as Scorpio confronts us with our mortality and demands that we evolve and transform from within as this is the true meaning and purpose of life.
At the end of life, how far we have evolved and the love in our hearts is all that matters.
“In the end, only three things matter: how much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of the things not meant for you.” – Buddhist saying.
