Our Sleepscape returns this May 18th in conjunction with the Blue Moon! This month we will experience what is called a seasonal Blue Moon, which is traditionally defined as the third full Moon in a season that has four full Moons. According to NASA, this phenomenon only occurs once every 2.5 years! This Blue Moon brings us the energies of Scorpio, the watery sign of transformation and mystery.
The Scorpio full moon is perhaps the most emotionally intense Full Moon and as a result, the most transformative. Scorpio brings out our darkest demons and the courage to slay them. What Scorpio desires most is to face life’s greatest challenges and be reborn by them. This sign does not discriminate between dark and light and seems to understand the natural duality of the universe, yet in that understanding comes to a conclusion that there is no duality. Everything is everything, made of the same energy, all vibrating at different frequencies. Scorpio understands that all of life is just experience with energy, and any experience with energy is here to teach us, transform us and show us the mysteries of the universe.
The Scorpio Full Moon is the perfect opportunity to see all our shadows and love them. Scorpio inspires us to sit with all our intense feelings and explore them in their entirety. We are also reminded that the subconscious is ruling our conscious mind, no matter if we are aware of what lies there or not. Our shadow are parts of ourselves that are hurt and afraid. When we give these areas love and acceptance, they start to shift and no longer bring destruction into our lives. Scorpio urges us to know ourselves to the fullest extreme, for this is the path to our most enlightened self. This self is the version of us who lives without fear and in complete reliance on our own power.
Scorpio reminds us that by knowing ourselves, we understand everything else in the universe. At its core Scorpio is concerned with the search for Truth, and anything we find buried in our subconscious is another clue in understanding the energy that makes up everything. Scorpio teaches us there is no bad or good, that our labels of negative and positive are merely a matter of perception, and perception can always be changed. Anxiety, for instance, is the same energy as excitement. By shifting our perception and our consciousness, we create a full immersion into the universe. Scorpio reminds us that we hold the power to shape-shift any energy in our consciousness, to manifest the reality we desire.
This month we will be tapping into the energies of the Labradorite, a stone of shamans, healers, diviners, and all who seek knowledge, wisdom and Truth. Labradorite is an excellent stone for self-discovery, and is excellent for awakening one’s own awareness of inner spirit, intuition and psychic abilities. Wearing Labradorite allows one’s innate magical powers to surface. It provides an ease in moving between the worlds and permits a safe and grounded return to the present. Furthermore, Labradorite is said to be a powerful protector, creating a shielding force throughout the aura and strengthening natural energies from within. It protects against negative energies and misfortunes, and provides safe exploration into alternate levels of consciousness and in facilitating visionary experiences from the past or the future. You may find Labradorite at the following stores:
