Paganism is a new spiritual exploration for me. All the spiritual and mystical elements at play call to me. They always have in some for throughout my life. I now explore unconstrained pagan beliefs much as the ancient Romans expressed their spirituality. I like the free flowing, non-uniformed way of embracing my pagan nature.
Anyway the moon cycles, ancient festivals, and the many deities’ days of worship are wonderful ways to connect on so many levels. Most of my inspiration comes from well established and learned members of the Pagan community. Mystic Mamma is one of those. She shared this wonderful and adorning article about tonight's Scorpio moon. Read some of the article below and then head over to Mystic Momma to learn and be filled by the wonderful bounty of knowledge that is truly inspiring!
We have been integrating what has been brought to light in the past few weeks and are ready to move out of these deeper waters. This Full Moon in Scorpio illuminates the last of it, and calls for us to gather our courage and take action that will enable us to move forward.
Here are the MYSTIC MAMMA Astral Insights from the most insightful readers of the planetary movements. First from the wonderful Sarah Varcasand her Astro-Awakenings.uk:
“As we approach Wednesday’s Scorpio Full Moon and distance ourselves from the recent Sun/Saturn opposition we can best use this time to consider where in life we are skimming the surface in order to avoid the apparent darkness of depths we would prefer were not there.
“This is not an exercise in misery or some kind of morbid masochism but a gentle coaxing of our attention to the places where it does not naturally rest… Think of it as tending to a painful wound. We don’t bash it with a mallet to make it better. We bathe it in soothing warm water…”
“A Full Moon in Scorpio shines its light in the darkest places, encouraging us to peer in and see what’s there, even if only for a moment. So as we approach the coming Full Moon we can invite it in rather than dread its arrival, prepare a place at the table and plan for it to stay a while.
“In so doing we are holding out the wound we’ve been trying to avoid dealing with and asking for a healing balm to be applied. If the wound is deep it may hurt at the cleaning stage. I can’t deny that. But this is the pain of progress, of increasing consciousness, of the growth of wisdom.
“It is the pain that says something is now happening which will bring you to wholeness in due course. It is a different pain to the one which says ‘go too deep here and you’ll never return’: the pain of fear, denial, of living a half life because so much is banished to the shadows.”
