Full Moon in Scorpio- April 29, 2018

Full Moon in Scorpio- April 29, 2018
This full moon in Scorpio is about deep change and renewal. The previous new moon in Aries asked us to be in the moment and take action, acting on instinct.  Now that we've made it through the intense fire energies, we have water sign Scorpio's influence to help create a flow within ourselves. Full moons shine a light on our subconscious to show us what we need to release. You may notice your dreams are more intense than usual, which means your psyche is active now and can be used as way to do some inner clearing of old or stuck energies.  Scorpio encourages us to use this time to deeply transform ourselves for the better!

Pay extra attention to your inner world. Notice your thoughts, feelings, and your desires. Many of us may feel more introverted than usual under this full moon's energies. Scorpio has great power and loves deeply, but on the surface can be swayed by greed and ego. Check in with yourself, peel back the layers, and remember who you truly are and how you wish to grow as an individual. Once you do this, it will be easier to recognize what you need to let go of so you can make room for positive changes to take place! 

Scorpio appreciates abundance and prosperity, so if you're lacking in a certain area of your life then this full moon can help you attract what you desire! Remember to be present in each moment so you can receive these blessings. This full moon in particular would be a good time to perform a ceremony of release and renewal. You may write down what you want to let go of on a piece of paper and (safely) burn it, imagining yourself being freed from what is no longer serving you. You could also use Scorpio's element of water to flush out any toxins that may be preventing you from moving forward. Make a flower petal bath and light candles. Or simply listening to a river or even a fountain while setting your intention for this Full Moon. Wishing you all power and grace to attract what is best for you now!
