At Beltane nature’s energies get intense, growth surge is at it’s peak, we have escaped the clutches of winter and all of life wants to have fun. It’s time the buckle your safety belt and hold on tight, the thrust and surge that happens in the plants and among the animals also happens happens in human consciousness . Events can take unexpected twists and turns, the game of Life takes over, shows who has the reins… and it often isn’t us. It helps to surrender, accept and welcome what life brings: It’s time to be ready to act, to respond with grace and wisdom whatever is thrown our way on the spring winds and tides.
Beltane full moon is the peak of the surge, and coming so soon after May Day, the midpoint between equinox and solstice, had extra punch this year. Intense combination of surging bull earth taurus sun and deep deep water scorpio moon, shining on all our usually hard to reach emotional depths – stretching us and testing us = equals potential for transformation, hitting like a rogue wave. I’m betting that whether the weekend took u high on the wild moonlight or deep into the places within, this Beltane has hit many like a tsunami. Perhaps a gentle tsunami, if we are lucky, and more likely to be gentle if we are open to the transformation it brings, or simply at home in the deep feeling scorpio spirit combined with the sensual, amicable, occasionally bullish, taurus.
For some the last two weeks since new moon have brought huge surges of energy that bring them into ecstatic, or explosive, contact with the universe, sending them flying and perhaps into danger as they lose grip on the accepted norms of society’s collective illusion. They need help in the form of grounding, compassion and understanding. There may be quite a few of them, this moon brought in spirit and shifted consciousness.
Now we journey down the Beltane slope towards the next new moon. It’s time for healing, for releasing and nurturing, both our wounds and our dreams. Chances are we have taken a battering on some level or other, or got burnt in the intense moonlight. The moon is now in Sagittarius fire which brings the vision and ability to aspire anew, to look ahead and take aim with the fire of our intention. By the weekend the moon will be in Capricorn and offering energy to take practical and ambitious steps towards our, possibly reshaped, goals.
Healing Prayers sought and offered for the well-being and joyful realisations of all going through psychic/spiritual/mystical transformation and/or crisis right now. That’s a lot of people, some on the edge, some flying too high. It’s Icarus season, and I have been there and got burnt more than a few times .. This year I feel more like Daedalus, the elder, watching the young and unaware get burnt, and although my natural instinct was to take this moon as quietly as possible in good chilled company close to nature, i am still getting my own deep shot of scorpionic medicine from the universe for sure. Insight is as Instinct.
ROOTING. ROTATING. ROOTING. ROTATING.
BELTANE SEASON IS FOR MORE THAN JUST MATING.
LIFE’S IN A RUSH AND WAITING FOR US.
TO WAKE UP TO ITS SIMPLE MIRACLE.
DREAD NOUGHT. FEAR NOTHING.
LOOK ONLY FOR LIGHT AHEAD.
YET DROP EXPECTATION. LEARN TO FLOW
LIFE IS A QUEER OLD THING.
