Scorpio Full Blue Moon,
May 19-20, 2008
“I am inclined to fantasize the gods, the heroes, the mythic protagonists, gathered in occluded shadow around the zodiacal wheel, behind the planets. Where a particular myth can find a congenial home. . . then that myth will enter a person's life, and cling to him throughout his life as his daimon (guiding spirit).”
Liz Greene, The Astrology of Fate
Welcome to the Scorpio Blue Moon! Again!
Don't miss this 'once in a blue moon' chance to shift your priorities to the deep values rooted in your soul which will release the fear, anxiety and helplessness which hold you back from living mindfully - choosing a life that has meaning for you. The other side of fear is hope, of anxiety, love and of helplessness, power. It's time for you to re-connect (and you'll have that chance when Mercury goes retrograde this month) to your wisdom and worth. It's time to take yourself seriously and engage the mythic imagination to discover how to live divinely or die mythically.
Sound extreme. That's Taurus and Scorpio for you! Extreme in power, passion, stubbornness and wisdom.
With this second Scorpio Full Moon occuring in the 29th degrees of Taurus and Scorpio, we will be tested on the lessons of these elements – stablize your 'Earth' by recognizing and releasing the emotions that de-stablize you. How have you mastered the Taurus lesson of discovering your values? What are the talents you were born with and how are you using them? Are you a good steward of the Earth, responsible for creating a personal sustainable lifestyle? Do you listen to and trust your senses? Practice extending your senses 360 degrees around you – what do you hear, see, smell, taste and sense? What is life telling you? Exercising these muscles will strengthen your instincts again.
What in Life is worth living and dying for? That is the question the two Scorpio Full Moons are bouncing around between them. What have you been concerned about since the first Scorpio Full Moon on April 20th? What new life did you invoke on May 5th at the Taurus New Moon? Did you feel the 'gods and heroes' circling around you, urging you to do the very thing that you've been putting off for . . . how long? A few years? A whole lifetime? Other lifetimes? Your 'once in a blue moon' chance to change things is here!
Do you know what mythic story wants to live itself out in you? We are still living in mythic times. “...the figures of myth are the active and dynamic aspect of our fate, the daimones, and we draw the outer world into our own mythys at the points where the outer world's myths touch our own. Thus we, as vessels for myth, create our fate.” (Liz Green)
