One of the most transformational full moons of the year — the full moon in Scorpio — is upon us.
While some people have been protesting quarantines and stay-at-home orders, some of the more metaphysically-minded people I know have been looking at this period as a re-set, a re-charge and a rebirth. If this sounds like you, this full moon in Scorpio might reveal to you the lesson from the pandemic experience that is waiting for you.
The full moon in Scorpio, which takes place May 7 at 6:45 EST is about truth, honesty and rawness. Forget about the facades and the masks you wear each day; this moon invites you to get real about your true self and your emotions.
With people stuck in their homes unable to visit a hairdresser or barber, we’ve been forced to embrace our natural beauty and our true physical self.
The full moon asks us to be emotionally naked as we examine the new world that is emerging, grieve what is being lost and acknowledge the fears that are being stoked in this anxious period of time.
