Astro Oracle | The Moon Woman

Greetings Divine Beings!

We’re now approaching the full moon in Scorpio…da da da duuuuum! A lot of people fear Scorpio (whether that’s Scorpio transits or Scorpio people crossing their path.) 

Full moon is the culmination of the issues we were dealing with two weeks earlier at new moon usually in the opposite sign to the sign the full moon is in. In this instance the new moon was in Taurus, the opposite sign to Scorpio and Taurus asks us to consider our relationship to money, possessions and how that reflects our undermines our core values and soul desires.

Scorpio asks us to let go of control, to die psychologically by facing our greatest fears so we can transcend them and experience greater personal power.

So if you’ve been triggered into facing your financial fears, potential loss of that which you most value then embrace this  golden window as the moon waxes to full to consider the highest path of wisdom by attuning to the soft urgings of your heart’s inner voice rather than the demanding voice of the mind that incites hysteria with fear based thinking.

Some of you may witness how conflict over resources & money can tear families apart. The lesson is ultimately to resolve our emotional wounds or we risk destroying all we seek to create.

Depending on how much insight we gain into our own shadow at new moon, we’ll either manifest a climax of drama or a happy harvest of seeded intentions. Why? Unresolved issues often intensify as we approach full moon, bringing them to a head to be resolved. The key to ensuring inner calm is to be receptive to the illumination of the feminine within & without.

The Taurus to Scorpio journey this fortnight is the fertile polarity of water & earth, giving us the opportunity to soften & create if we can navigate a balanced path between our emotions & our values.

Full Moon in Scorpio

Archetypal Energy: The Primal Shaman
Lesson: Are you willing to surrender?

In the labours of Hercules, the lesson of Scorpio is when he faces off with the nine headed hydra, a serpentine headed sea monster that grows a new head whenever he manages to sever one.

This lunar month you may also feel that for every battle you appear to win another surfaces to be dealt with. This relentless struggle inevitably causes considerable wear and tear, not just on us physically but mentally and emotionally as we start to question who we are and what we’re fighting for…this is the real battle.  the battle with the forces of good and evil within. For it is our perception of ourselves that will determine the outcome. Alexander the Great believed he was invincible after the oracle told him so…a belief that became a self-fulfilling prophecy.

So too, when we reconnect with the truth…of who we are and why we’re doing what we’re doing we find the inspiration to find a magical solution to our problems previously unthought of.

The fastest way to access the truth and not waste time battling our projected illusions is to ask for help…from a higher power to see where we’re part of the problem. How we’re sabotaging ourselves with unconscious thoughts that drive our compulsive behaviours.

It is inevitable that heroes and heroines are tested, and the tests increase along with our personal power as we magnetise to our with more force our unconscious projections. So Scorpio asks us to acknowledge how powerful we are so we can take full responsibility for our power and use it wisely.

In the mythic labours, Hercules solves his challenge by holding the beast high in the air signifying him surrendering his supreme ordeal up to a higher power for divine intervention. This comes after his initial response, which is to fight fire with fire which simply serves to enflame the battle of wills.

Deep Dive: Surviving a Scorpio Full Moon Rising

Regardless of you natal sun sign (commonly referred to as your star sign) as we approach the full moon in Scorpio you may observe in yourself and others Scorpion traits, such as:

  • unwavering determination and focus
  • acute emotional sensitivity and increased psychic awareness
  • a need to speak the truth as you see it or feel it, even if it makes others feel uncomfortable
  • a preoccupation to probe the depths by exploring the shadow (what lies beneath) as a way of ensuring it doesn’t sabotage the creation being woven 

You can appreciate how this blend isn’t ideal for winning a popularity contest!

So how to embrace a Scorpio lunar transit?

  • Apply yourself to a task that speaks to your core values but remember to schedule other personal needs like toilet stops, meals and hugs
  • Honour the fact that you may need more solo time than usual to defrag from your heightened sensitivity
  • remember that when people reject the messenger it’s not personal…they’re rejecting what you say or represent for fear it will cause them to question all they value 
  • Be sure to equally focus on and affirm the gifts of a person or situation to balance the shadow you call out so they don’t close down fearing only criticism

“The Only Thing We Have to Fear Is Fear Itself”
Franklin D. Roosevelt 

Like the old adage, ‘Where there’s fear there’s power’ as we approach full moon in Scorpio, the sign of power chances are we’ll have to face our greatest fears.

But rather than being spooked by external potential threats our challenge is to conquer the fears that will undermine us if we don’t seek to heal them through understanding…bring the light of illumination to that which festers unacknowledged in the dark.

My Latest News

Above is the site of the spring at Dephi where the Pythia priestesses used to bathe in the crystalline mountain water to cleanse their energy field prior to serving as oracles. Situated away from the main tourist site, I was able to jump the railing and channel here undisturbed – grateful!
I’m now in Greece to facilitate my Inner Goddess retreat on the island of Amorgos where the french film, ‘The Big Blue’ was filmed…a remote island it’s only accessible by a 7 hour ferry ride!

Here in Athens, I’ve been staying at a lovely place called The House which has a vision to provide a community home for travellers. It has so much heart and isn’t filled with loud party crowd but older travellers from all over the world. I highly recommend if you plan to come to Greece as it’s cheaper and more welcoming than a sterile mainstream hotel. Click here for info

I’ve spent the past couple of days visiting ancient temple sites, including Delphi and the Acropolis.

Delphi was a pilgrimage that has called to my soul for over 20 years…it was once a temple to Gaia (Mother Earth) where serpentine priestesses known as Pythia learned to raise their kundalini so they could serve as clear vessels providing counsel and guidance for her people by channelling and speaking truth. It was then appropriated as a temple of the sun god, Apollo by the reigning patriarchs who overthrew the earlier tradition that was Earth worshipping. (I speak more about that in my book, Goddess Wisdom)

I found the mainstream tour very confronting as the priestesses were portrayed as charlatans (the prejudice applied to those who serve as clairvoyants in our patriarchal culture) telling people what they wanted to hear to gain wealth. The tour focused on the grand architecture of the patriachs who traded on the previous name of Delphi and turned it into a business where those with power and status skipped the queues. There was no understanding of the meaning of sacred symbols and artifacts on display at the delphi museum from the perspective of the sacred feminine.

I felt so minimised by the end of the day, after realising how negative stereotypes were being anchored every day about the sacred feminine to hundreds of people every day who are drawn to our ancient sacred sites seeking greater meaning.

That said, I am determined to strengthen her voice and to that end I’m stepping things up to expand my sphere of influence…catalysed by losses on my recent tour I’m restructuring how I work. Rather than try and do everything on my own independently risking all I have to bring the teachings that come through me to more people, I’m risking rejection by mainstream to offer my voice in a greater forum by creating submissions for speaker agencies, publishing houses and film production companies.

After Greece I return to Germany where Franz and I are presenting the following events for those of you in Europe this is your last opportunity to join us:
