This week brings us not only the intense Scorpio full Moon, but also the Celtic cross-quarter holiday of Beltane, (May 1), celebrating the powers of life and growth. "It's May, it's May, the lusty month of May." As Starhawk describes it: Beltane is the time when "sweet desire weds wild delight'.
What are you growing? You might already see it blossoming.
This month's full Moon occurs on Wednesday, April 28th at 8:18am Pacific/5:18am Eastern, between the signs of Taurus and Scorpio. With Venus/Aphrodite ruling Taurus, she brings us the sweet delight while Scorpio's ruler Mars/Eros brings on the wild desire. I might be a bit prejudiced since my birthday is early next week, but the Taurus-Scorpio full Moon is one of the most intense and beautiful full Moons of the year.
What happens when the Goddess of Love and Connection meets up with the God of Desire? At their worst, they gobble each other up turning love into lust and desire into perversion. At their best, these divine energies infuse and inspire us to connection with our passions, our truest Self. We blaze with Love for what we value and desire. We stand up for the beauty of Life.
