Last night’s full moon in Scorpio is the belle of the ball right now. Her brilliance is not only lit up by the Taurus Sun but her photographs are all over the news media, Facebook, Google, NASA and endless other sources. How stunning she is in her perigee, a point in the moon’s orbit that at unique times brings the moon closest to Earth. She seems so close that we can almost reach out and touch her! Aside from the breath taking visual, as always there’s meaning here through the evolutionary astrological lens.
Full moons are always about polarity highlighting particular themes that have come to a ‘full culmination’ point within our personal evolutionary process. For a moon in Scorpio change is upon us. We are urged to consider that which is emotionally deep within …something that’s been hidden until now needing to be looked at ‘in the light’. It might be very old ‘stuff’ wanting to be healed from prior times in this life or memories of past lives.
The energy of the opposing Taurus Sun encourages us to take the time with ourselves for this shift. Taurus is methodical, grounded and careful. Ruled by Venus, Taurus loves beauty and nature. Perhaps spending time in nature in an environment that’s peaceful and nurturing is just what’s called for.
There are several of Dr. Edward Bach’s flower remedies that can support this healing. Those readily coming to mind are Agrimony, Star of Bethlehem and Walnut. Agrimony helps us to feel safe in acknowledging within ourselves and verbally to others, those things which have been hidden, so that we might receive the external support to help us through the healing. Star of Bethlehem as I have written in other posts, is considered by those of us who are practitioners, as the umbrella remedy. Dr. Bach in so many words referred to it as the ‘ultimate healer of all wounds’…I have never met anyone in over 20 years who cannot benefit from this beautiful and extremely powerful remedy. As a reminder ,it’s one of the five in Bach’s ‘Rescue Remedy’ or the ‘Five Flower Formula’ from Healing Herbs Ltd. Finally, Walnut…the classic choice for life’s transitions. Walnut helps us to move forward to get our foot over the threshold and ‘cut the ties that bind.’
So whatever needs to come to light in your life, whatever needs to be discarded through healing so that you can move on, look to the embracing energy of this beautiful full moon in her glory and add these remedies to your ‘healing kit’.
