Get ready for the Scorpio Full Moon – a lunar event that has been associated with transformation, emotional intensity, and uncovering hidden truths. While it may sound intimidating, this Full Moon can be an incredibly powerful time for growth and personal development. The Scorpio Full Moon is sometimes known as the "Pink Moon," named after the pink flowers that bloom during this time of year. However, don't let the cute name fool you – this Full Moon is anything but delicate. Scorpio is a water sign ruled by Pluto, the planet of transformation, and is known for its intense and emotional energy. But, there's a reason why this Full Moon is associated with transformation. That means emotions that we've been repressing or ignoring may come bubbling to the surface. It's like opening a can of worms, except the worms are our feelings, and they're all wriggling around trying to get our attention. Opening this can of worms allows us to acknowledge, confront and process our emotions. This can be an uncomfortable process, but it's necessary for growth and healing. Adding to the intensity is the Taurus Sun Season, which overlaps with the Scorpio Full Moon. Taurus is an earth sign ruled by Venus, the planet of love and beauty. This energy encourages us to slow down, take a breath, and appreciate the beauty in our lives. However, the Taurus Sun can also bring up feelings of stubbornness and resistance to change, making it even more challenging to confront our emotions during the Scorpio Full Moon. So, what can we do to manage the intensity of the Scorpio Full Moon and Taurus Sun Season? First and foremost, practice self-care. Take a bath, light some candles, and use my magnesium-enhanced cream, AvoCream. Avocado oil is known for its soothing properties, and the magnesium will help to calm your nerves. Plus, it's unscented, so you don't have to worry about any overpowering or irritating fragrances.
AvoCream's magnesium content makes it a powerful tool during the Scorpio Full Moon's intense energy. Magnesium is a mineral that plays a crucial role in over 300 enzymatic reactions in the body, including muscle and nerve function, blood sugar control, and energy production. It also helps to regulate the body's stress response and promotes relaxation by activating the parasympathetic nervous system. But that's not all! Avocado oil, which forms the base of Avocream, is rich in antioxidants and fatty acids, making it an excellent gentle and nourishing moisturizer to show your skin some love during the heightened energy of this lunation.
During the Full Moon, when emotions can run high, the body can go into fight-or-flight mode, leading to increased anxiety and tension. Magnesium can help to counteract this by promoting relaxation and calming the nervous system. By using Avocream, which has a high concentration of magnesium, you can effectively soothe and relax your body, making it easier to manage the intensity of the Full Moon's energy. Another helpful tactic is to lean into the transformative energy of Scorpio. Use this time to reflect on your emotions and see what needs to change. Maybe you've been holding onto anger or resentment, and it's time to let it go. Or perhaps you've been ignoring your intuition and need to start trusting your gut. Whatever it is, this Full Moon is the perfect time to make a change. My favorite way to reflect and process emotions is journaling. While journaling there is no place for judgment or perfection. Most often we are our own worst critics and we should have one safe space that isn't dependent on other people or external factors. Write with editing for spelling and grammar. Write without questioning what it means for you to feel those feelings or express them. Word vomit on the page and allow yourself to release the energies you've been suppressing.
Remember, the Scorpio Full Moon may be intense, but with the right tools, we can manage our emotions and embrace the transformative energy of this lunar event. 2 helpful tools you can employ to manage the emotions are journaling and AvoCream, the magnesium-enhanced cream that will soothe your skin and calm your nerves. So, go forth, my friends, and enjoy the ride! Remember, growth and transformation aren't always easy, but they're always worth it.
