Grandfather Sun was setting in the west and the horizon was filled with pink, orange, and scarlet colours but Snowy Owl and Shooting Star were staring intently in the east direction. They had visited the Shaman’s Cave before climbing the path to the Star Temple and he had told them this night when Sister Moon rose in the east she would appear brighter and larger than she had at the last Full Moon. The sisters waited in anticipation for they knew the message Sister Moon had to share would be very powerful.
When Luna appeared on the eastern horizon she was a huge golden orb. The sisters watched as she climbed higher and higher in the darkened sky becoming shimmering silver with a brilliant halo surrounding her. There were a few cloud people covering the sky but that just added to the mystical feeling as Sister Moon hid behind them and then reappeared. Then suddenly a figure flew from the center of the Moon, wings beating in the dark, coming closer and closer to the Star Temple.
“I am Eagle Woman” the Goddess said when she landed in front of Snowy Owl and Shooting Star. “Sister Moon has asked me to take you on a journey to the far away time. Go now and put on your magic feather capes so you may fly with me.” The sisters hurried to the Standing One who guarded their capes and quickly put them on. When they were ready Eagle Woman took flight and they followed. She led them past the Wandering Ones into the dark night of Great Mystery. The Starry Ones twinkled in greeting as the trio passed by. Finally all three reached the far away time.
The Earth Mother was dark except for a few lights sprinkled here and there. “Those lights you see are the two-leggeds who have awakened to their Soul Essence Selves” Eagle Woman explained. “But they are not enough to restore balance to the Earth Mother. This Full Moon of Transformation is asking many more humans to awaken to the light within and shine that out into the world. It is time for the two-leggeds to release fear and embrace healing and a new way of being. That is the message from Sister Moon. She asks that you two continue to be guides for those who are ready to shed the old and embrace the new.”
Eagle Woman then led the sisters back to the Star Temple. She told them to be ready to fly to the far away time whenever they were needed. Snowy Owl and Shooting Star nodded in agreement and felt honoured that they would be guides again for those in the far away time who were ready to heal and shine their Soul Light and then help others transform and find theirs.
In traditional astrology the Moon is said to be in her “fall” when she is in Scorpio. That is interpreted as losing power and influence. I have not found this to be true. When the Moon visits the sign of birth, death, and rebirth, the energy is intense, powerful, and transformative. This Scorpio Super Full Moon is giving us all the support to release what no longer serves us, experience healing and transformation, and be re-born into our true selves. That is the theme from now until the Gemini New Moon Solar Eclipse of May 20.
The astrological symbols for Scorpio are very telling. This most mysterious sign has the power for transformational healing but its shadow side is revenge and self protection at all costs. That is the Scorpion; I will destroy you before you can destroy me. The next symbol is the Eagle; the power of creation, healing, and spiritual illumination. Like its sign Scorpio, this Winged One has keen perception and sight. Do not lie to a Scorpio, they will always know. Eagle also connects us to spirit for it is said because he can fly so high he carries our prayers to Creator and Great Mystery. When Scorpio lets go of the need to control he too enters the mysteries. The third symbol is the Phoenix Dove; through love it is the power to experience transformation, resurrection, and rebirth. You can see how powerful this Super Full Moon is. As well she will be closest to Earth than any other time in 2012. Whatever hurt or pain that lies buried deep within this is your opportunity to bring it to the surface and heal and transform it so you can move into your Lightness Of Being.
The ancient ruler for Scorpio is Mars, currently in Virgo. The traditional ruler for Taurus is Venus, currently in Gemini. Since April 08 they have been in their Fourth Quarter Phase asking us to redefine, revision and realign our relationship experiences and that focus continues with this Full Moon. These relationship planets are asking us to bring spiritual love back into our living and see the Soul Essence Self in others. The other ruler for the Scorpio Moon is Pluto, release, transformation, and rebirth in Capricorn, how we take our power in the world and our Soul Purpose. Pluto is offering us the gift of deep healing if we would only let go of the old way.
The Native Animal Totem for the Moon in Scorpio is Snake, shedding the old skin, healing and release, which leads to transformation. The Clan Mother is Walks Tall Woman the keeper of new pathways. She is the guardian of inner knowing, integrity, and right action. She teaches us to walk the path of our truth. Walks Tall Woman is the guardian of our relationship to Great Mystery. The Animal Totem for the Sun in Taurus is Beaver, the builder of the new and following our dreams and vision. Let this Full Moon reconnect you to your spiritual guidance. The Clan Mother who guides Taurus is Listening Woman, the guardian of “The Stillness.” She teaches us to seek answers within Great Mystery and hear the truth within ourselves. She is the keeper of the sacred point of view of all our relations. She teaches us to walk in grace and be in harmony with All That Is. Let these Clan Mothers, Listening Woman and Walks Tall Woman, guide you as you release what no longer serves you. You can discover more of their stories in the 13 Original Clan Mothers and Earth Medicine, both by Jamie Sams.
This Scorpio Moon is active on the Tarot Constellation of The Emperor, the principle of life force and the realization of power. Scorpio symbolizes the transformative power of the Soul. The other energies on this Constellation are Aries, the I AM SELF, and Uranus, breakthrough and breaking free. Uranus is currently travelling through Aries so this Constellation will be active until March 2019.
The Sun in Taurus is found on the Tarot Constellation of The Hierophant, the principle of teaching and learning. It reminds us every experience we have is to lead us to becoming Wisdom Keepers and wise teachers. It is about dancing to the tune of a different drummer to discover our Divine Self. The other sign on this Constellation is Sagittarius, learning through experience to discover our Spiritual Truth. The North Node (new directions) of the Moon is currently in Sagittarius and will be until Aug 29, 2012. The Hierophant is your guide for this journey.
This Scorpio Full Moon is expressed on The 4th Ray of Harmony Through Conflict and is the Ray of the human kingdom. The other signs of this Ray are Taurus (personal empowerment) and Sagittarius (dogma or spiritual consciousness). The other expression of 4th Ray is Harmony Through Beauty and Peace. The Archangels who guide us are Gabriel, transformation and resurrection, and Hope, trust and belief in self. Let us all hope enlightenment and Lightness Of Being is what humanity chooses.
