Scorpio Full Moon 2020

Scorpio Full Moon — Taurus Season: You can’t take it with you when you go.

With SO MUCH changing at this time Taurus Season helps us focus on that which nourishes & sustains us and keeps us connected to source while we inhabit the body.

A fertile, abundant energy Taurus is resourceful. It saves for a rainy day and softens the hard edges. It also has the potential to hoard or get bogged down in the fear of change, and this Full Moon is reminding us of the inevitability of change and endings, of something greater than our creature comforts and convenience.

As some places relax their lockdown laws many folks are fearing that nothing will have changed in this incubation time, that so much loss and suffering was for nothing and that hope of a new world is too far from reach.

It’s said that this is the Full Moon that Gautama the Buddha attained enlightenment under. Knowing that there were only 5 people at his first teaching we can rest assured that
from little things big things grow. The seeds that you have planted in this incubation time can grow into physical and spiritual changes in your life – if you nurture them. Whether it be awareness about how a fast paced, capitalistic world hurts you, or how there’s a natural rhythm in your body that does not require an alarm clock, or that you’ve realised the relationship / job / lifestyle you were living needs some tweaking will all require both the pain of loss that accompanies profound change as well as your dedication to nurturing that growth.

Whatever your situation throughout the last 3-6 months, we’ve all had time to reflect on what this one precious life is about and what our relationship to the material and spiritual world is. There is undeniable change occurring and it will continue to unfold. If it’s not a pandemic it’ll be something else; choices made in the past have left us in an ongoing crisis and there’s nothing comfortable about it.

As the Nodes shift signs and Venus slows down to turn retrograde, this Full Moon encourages us to clarify what’s important. The economy is not our new North Star! What 2020 has gifted us is what Scorpio does best: penetrate straight to the heart of the matter and highlight what is no longer valuable. Nurture those seeds no matter how small or insignificant they may feel because it’s a collective effort bringing in the new world.

Incubation

I’ve been thinking about this time that we’re all experiencing together in terms of incubation. It reminds us that while it may appear like we’re doing nothing in the eyes of capitalism, we’re actively nurturing the new world into existence. Incubation allows us to observe the destruction that capitalism has on this living, breathing organism we exist on, as well as the bodies we exist within.

The world over, we’re being forced to do the exact same thing. This virus, like Aquarius, doesn’t discriminate. It takes everyone into consideration, everywhere. No one is spared. Therefore as we look at the world, and ourselves, from the inside out a consciousness shift is occurring. History shows us that major, fundamental changes in society, in how people think and what we think about is almost always accompanied by a collective event that forces the transmutation. It’s also often accompanied by great resistance from those who hold power. 

This incubation means that Capitalisms’ biggest fear can be realised: when our forced participation is halted we have time and space to ask legitimate questions such as, “Why do we work to live and eat?” “Why are we contributing to systems that hurt us and the planet?” “How do we deconstruct the old and build a more inclusive, equitable, respectful new?”  Whether you’re dependent on capitalism or capitalism is dependent on your poverty (financially, spiritually or mentally), the instability and inequality is being exposed and affecting everyone.
