In the 17th Degree of Attraction
so much pain
and here you are
making so much gold of it
there is nothing purer than that
The truest truth for the Scorpio soul
that burns inside of each of us.
To those of you who sit and dream by the light of the Full Moon:
Earlier this week on a sleepy Monday morning, the moon waxing in peace-loving Libra, I heard Ram Dass whisper this word in my ear:
His mystical stories had lulled me to sleep several hours prior to waking up to him planting the seed of ahimsa in my dreamy, lucid state.
A Sanskrit word meaning non-violence, an integral principle of yoga and yoga philosophy, the medicine we Lovers and Empaths, Healers and Sorceresses are brewing through the light and love of this Full Moon in Scorpio.
A Moon and a Sign which have the power to stir up intense emotions and impassioned words.
A Moon and a Sign which have the potential to strip off our clothes and our masks, rapidly tearing down walls and melting defenses to leave us achingly exposed in front of our emotional selves.
How do you feel? Do you like what you see?
The Moon in Scorpio in aspect to Neptune in Pisces is powerfully aligned at this time to initiate deep, watery healing of emotional and mental scars, creating a space to witness ourselves and our lives with a fresh set of eyes, nudging us to wholly love and fully live.
Traditionally, ahimsa’s focus has been on the practice of not hurting others with our bodies, our words and our thoughts.
In many ways, we Lovers are highly skilled in practicing ahimsa with the souls who cross our paths—the empathetic, people-pleasing, please-love-me part of ourselves that stubbornly refuse to create chaos, dispel illusions, blow something up, retaliate strong, to speak up and speak out.
Sometimes, though, in troubling times, walking a steady path rooted in ahimsa and loving kindness challenges the Mother Teresa in all of us to lose control.
Especially, when we find ourselves spinning, imbalanced, exhausted, disrespected.
Or in a middle of a pandemic.
Particularly, when we’re in relationships that have outlived their loving purpose, involved in work that’s soul-sucking, denied ourselves the body-and-soul healing we need.
Definitely, when our heart’s been broken, boundaries have been crossed, violations have occurred—self-inflicted and otherwise.
When we find ourselves in these places, our words can become mean, bitter, sarcastic, critical, lashing out at others for the hurt we feel, the words we’ve held back, the behaviour we’ve let go on for much too long.
We may feel better momentarily in this unravelling and unleashing of the pain we thought we were immune to, but we forget the adverse effects our words and our actions are having as they ripple out into the world.
The Scorpio in all of us will show us how we’ve suppressed to impress upon others that we’re worthy of love even if we’ve been suffering in silence all along.
But if you hurt, I hurt, we all hurt.
This Full Moon, tune into what the profoundly loving Scorpio energy can offer you.
Being truly committed to a path of deep self-love and awareness, you’ll inevitably come face-to-face with the stunning realization that your ability to be ahimsic with others is directly connected to your ability to be ahimsic with yourself.
When your Gandhi-like, Kuan Yin, White Buffalo Woman selves are truly living the practice of ahimsa, you will be called to love yourself in kind.
Scorpio more than any other sign because of Her ability to love wildly and with glowing red abandon will illuminate for us where this call to kindness and compassion is needed, so we turn to worship at the altar of Love at the cost of sacrificing the pain.
We lay it all down, the refusal to give ourselves the rest we need, the movement and nourishment our bodies crave while removing the substances we know are hurting our precious beings.
We release the behaviours of too busy, too high, too low, all of which leave us with such little space to reflect, digest, feel, seed, sow, sing, laugh, love, create.
We let go of the compulsion to be unkind to the image in the mirror,
to carry others when we
are the ones needing to be held,
to deny our need to touch and
be made love to,
to seek approval from anyone else
other than our sweet selves,
to suppress our brilliance
when it clearly needs to shine,
to say yes when we wanted to say no,
to lie down when we should be standing up,
to remain silent when we must speak the truth,
to follow the crowd when we dream of following our hearts.
This Full Moon, we have an opportunity to surrender the untamed thoughts that plunge fire-tipped spears into our innocent selves, casting spells of unworthiness, dark clouds of comparison, and bone-splitting traps of not enough.
This Full Moon, we can choose instead to reflect, to burn, to release, to vow, to protect, to walk forward from here, not letting our stories define us or our emotions hide our Light.
We accept nothing less but to see our life through the eyes of Love and to hear the many wild and mysterious ways Lover and Beloved are always whispering in our ears.
