Scorpio Lunar Eclipse 2023: Turning Lead into Gold

Scorpio Full Moon Lunar Eclipse at 14’58” degrees 10:22 – 10:34 AM PDT on May 5, 2023

The Lunar Eclipse Full Moon reverberates energy worldwide. Eclipses are like doorways that open up opportunities for massive, global shifts. It’s important to be aware of what you are feeling, thinking, and doing. Where attention goes, energy flows.

The Lunar Full Moon Eclipse is in the sign of Scorpio. Scorpio is about Transformation, change, death, and rebirth. Scorpio is the doorway into the Underworld of hidden depths and hidden power. This Lunar Eclipse desires for you to be more empowered via a rebirth of your emotional body. You are the only one who can control how you react or respond to outer influences. This is why it is vitally important for you to know how you feel. Become an expert at identifying what is your energy and what is the energy of others.

Pluto is the modern ruler of Scorpio. Mars is the ancient ruler of Scorpio. In the Tarot, the rulers are represented by The Tower (Mars) and Judgement (Pluto). If you meditate upon these major Arcana cards, you can see the amount of energy it takes to make a transformation. A tower-like event occurs and the reverberation is felt as a Judgement of your soul.

When the Moon is in the sign of Scorpio, it is in its “Fallen” energy. The sign of Scorpio is the most intense sign, being Fixed in its Water element. The Moon is the mirror of your emotional body. Scorpio is the depths of your emotions that you may no longer be in touch with as they are deeply felt in the Underworld. These hidden emotions are voices of past experiences. Sometimes these past experiences are from other lifetimes where emotional trauma was left unresolved.

What is your base nature?

The fallen energy of Scorpio Full Moon opens up a portal to the Underworld. This portal is designed to help you rediscover what lies hidden in the deepest recesses of your emotional body. In a world of duality fueled by unconsciousness, the split in the field is created by choices. The energy of choices is centered around choosing your higher spiritual “Yes” or your lower material “No”. This is beautifully represented in two Major Arcana in the Tarot — The Lovers and The Devil. The Lovers card is what it looks like when you make healthy choices for yourself. The Devil card is the choices made that bind you to your base nature — that which is apart from your divine nature. You can look at this energy like vices, addictions, and negative patterns that make you feel less than others.

It is interesting how the original definition of sin is “missing the mark”. Look at your choices to see which ones have missed the mark, the mark being your ultimate happiness. Don’t be afraid to see what is there. The longer you put off seeing what is in your shadow spaces, the more power you give to the unconsciousness to rule and run your life.

Shadow Work

Begin your journey into the shadows of lost, forgotten times by getting clear with Yes/No questions. Simply ask yourself if what you are experiencing is from this life or a past life. Whatever first comes to your mind, go with that answer. Don’t try to second guess yourself or feel you might get it wrong. Your answers will lead you to exactly where you need to go. Trust your own process (that’s the power of Scorpio!). Allow each answer to open a new door moving deeper into more self-awareness. What you are doing is making the unconscious conscious. This is the Wizard’s Way!

Being true to oneself is paramount in all things.

The Sabian Symbol for the Scorpio Full Moon Lunar Eclipse is about returning to your original essence. When you were a child, what did you concern yourself most with? Most likely it was something very simple and in the moment. “What do I want to eat? How do I want to play?” This Lunar Eclipse wants you to remember who you really are and what you really love to do. When your adult life becomes too heavy and confusing, being true to yourself is the best and most empowering thing you can do. Your inner child knows exactly how to live free.

Allow this Full Moon in Scorpio to help you gain insight by remembering the child within. Your inner child knows intuitively how to make life more meaningful. Trust your inner voice of innocence to light the way toward a more peaceful, content, and fulfilling life moving forward in 2023.
