Now is the time to acknowledge and let go of whatever has been holding you back. Toxicity is being shaken to the surface to be seen and removed. Whether that be toxic emotions, relationships, self-beliefs or habits, they are all up for review.
Scorpio is the sign of death and rebirth which relates to the deeper, emotional side of our nature. So we can expect emotional metamorphosis during this spell. It is also the detective of the zodiac, so it will be easier to see the truth behind situations. Emotional manipulation will look blatant, and we may experience revelations about where we are feeling tied down, and by who.
This is the final eclipse to happen on the Taurus/Scorpio axis for another 18 years. It means we are completing the circle and implementing all that we have learned about money, patience, self-worth, values, sensuality and our bodies. In the next 6 months, there will be opportunities to develop a brand new, and even more true, version of you!
Eclipses bring the past and the future to our attention. We can experience crossroad decisions of whether to repeat patterns, stay in relationships or choose more appropriate paths. Painful memories or emotions can be stirred up, but there will be prizes for purges! It is wise to release what was buried in the past. Any amount of emotional cleansing will be rewarded by the benevolent combination of Venus and Jupiter.
We should also remember the shadow of Scorpio will still be in effect: jealousy, manipulation and control. Find your neutral space if any of this gets projected at you, just continue being true to yourself and your path.
The maverick Uranus is having a strong impact on this moon bringing even more change. When Uranus is in the mix, expect surprises, unexpected breakthroughs, rebellion and liberation! So if you've had an intention for some time, this could be the month it snaps into place.
And lastly, let's not forget Mercury, who is retrograde in Taurus and directly opposing the Moon. This planetary energy will be adding a certain stillness, mental stability and ability to intuit what feels right and what doesn't for our bodies and our future. Watch out for any stubbornness and get yourself out in nature if you need to calm any bull like rage before making important decisions.
Wishing everyone a beautiful bathe in the lunar energy. May she cleanse and elevate you to a place of peaceful truth.
