Healthy for the Holidays!
It’s all or nothing when it comes to the intensity of Scorpionic energy, which can often veer to extremes. While Scorpio is associated with control, dominance, and intensity, it bears an incredibly spiritual and shamanic energy, too. Scorpio is the ruler of transformation, making this lunation extra powerful when it comes to shifting parts of our lives that have been—until now—previously blocked.
The Scorpio new moon is all about jumping off the starting blocks. The fear of the unknown is what keeps most people stuck in a cycle. Instead of giving yourself a sunny pep talk, embrace what’s coming up. By acknowledging what’s buried—and finding some savvy guides and mentors you can embark on a new, lifelong journey that’s not only successful but also amazingly nourishing to your soul.
Many of us are going through a period of deep review around life, your choices, your relationships, the things that you are doing in the world. This process will continue strongly in November, and you may experience daydreams and flashbacks to other times, other relationships, other places in your life.
This is a life-review and life-update in progress. Part of that involves a revisiting of past experiences and life events at high speed. The opportunity is to let you see them differently now, to let you see how far you have come, or to learn something from them with the new perspective you have in the now. As we all go through these review periods we are having a clear-out. We start to lift and rearrange the emotional, psychic and psychological debris inside ourselves when we have a clear-out like this which is extraordinarily potent and a fast time of transformation.

Happy Full Moon in Taurus! Full Moons always are opposite signs of the zodiac from each other, but also invite us to work to achieve a balance between the opposing energies. The contrast between earthy, practical, peace-loving Taurus and emotional, transformative, Scorpio comes full bloom today.
The Moon in Taurus wants us to find emotional fulfillment through the simple things in life, while the Scorpio Sun draws our attention to complexities and mysteries. The Full Moon illuminates this conflict between form (Taurus) and transformation (Scorpio), and between collecting (Taurus) and sharing (Scorpio). This is a passionate and creative Full Moon, ripe with possibilities and learning experiences.

Release is not just a word that means letting go, it is an energetic action that removes all energetic connections and obligations that you have assumed to complete the soul mission and healing journey which is the purpose of your life. You have completion and closure when you acknowledge that you have done all you can do and are unable to force or influence the changes and transformation you want to see in others or in the world.
One of the most important Hindu festivals, Janmashtami (Krishna Jayanti) is the birthday of Lord Krishna, the eighth re-incarnation of Lord Vishnu who gave the vital message of the Bhagwat Gita – the guiding principles for every Hindu.
Across India there will be ceremonies and prayers at temples dedicated to Krishna. The day before may consist of fasting and prayer up to midnight, the time at which it was said that Krishna was born.
Many colourful legends tell of Krishna’s life and he is a prominent figure in Hindu writings.
As a child he is noted for his pranks such as the aforementioned butter stealing and images of him as a child often show him dancing joyously and holding a ball of butter in his hands.
As a adult, he is most commonly depicted as a dancer or a lover, often playing the flute and surrounded by adoring women. In one story, it is said that defeated the many headed serpent Kaliya by dancing it into submission.
You are exactly where you are supposed to be. The more kind and patient you are with yourself, the more gently you will move across these times. You can feel the pressure of change; do not let it ignite you. Let it wash over you in acceptance.
While it feels like we have been letting go to allow the new so much in the past, it feels cliché to even mention it. But truthfully, it was just child’s play practice for what we must do. Nothing old will be the same again, and our minds can race around in fear trying desperately to figure out what this could possibly mean and even enter into pleading negotiations about what it wants to keep. This only defeats us. We can never figure it out. We need only agree, surrender, allow, admit, trust, release, and so on into the light. The most powerful mantra is: I now release all that no longer serves me and am open to receive all that nourishes, and is in harmonic alignment with, my Soul’s purpose. Out with the old, in with the new. Upgrade complete!
