"May this Eclipse portal move me gracefully through my current transitions of life.
May it elevate me out of any darkness and underground frequencies.
May it relieve me from any doubt, fears, and/or confusion.
And if things get hard in the process, please remind me that the challenges are only here to expand me into growing my truth, faith, and inner wisdom.
It's safe to feel everything that comes up.
I am safe with myself, and I embrace it all.
I allow this portal to be an opening of my heart & Soul to receive all the miracles that are coming my way.
And so it is."

Full Moon in Scorpio, Lunar Eclipse | Friday 5/5/2023 at 10:34 a.m. PT

"When the lunar eclipse meets Scorpio, magic is in the air. Scorpio is one of the most transformative signs of the zodiac. Paired with a lunar eclipse, this becomes a potent time for revelation, change, and immense psychological breakthroughs. The energy of the eclipse will affect everyone, and its energy will be intense. There will be no hiding from the vibrations this eclipse will bring everyone in the world. Through its intensity, this eclipse has the power to create any transformation you need in your life right now. It may not feel particularly good at the time it is occurring, but the change it creates ultimately opens the door for your highest energetic potential.

Ruled by water and the planet Pluto, Scorpio asks us to confront our deepest emotions. In doing so, Scorpio reminds us that we are magicians and healers. We can transform any energy, emotion, or behavior. We can turn darkness into light, and tension into relaxation. We can heal from the most painful wounds, turning them into wisdom, and we can navigate any storm with ease. The key in working with this energy is to be willing to feel. This eclipse asks us to put our logical mind at bay. It reminds us that when we analyze our feelings, we only prolong them. We need to feel to transform, and that means slowing down, courageously looking inward, crying, and holding space for any energy to rise from our subconscious...

Remember, this eclipse just might show you something essential for your evolution, so pay attention. Give yourself time to process whatever is arising in your field and avoid making any hasty decisions at this time. This energy is part of a continuing path that will last throughout the year. Allow your transformation to unfold naturally. Be kind to yourself and know you are exactly where you need to be right now for your highest energetic evolution."


"This eclipse will serve as the final chapter in a story you’ve been living for over a year now, and the end of an 18-month-long lesson in release. This series of Taurus and Scorpio eclipses began in late 2021 and has required an unflinching and thorough sloughing off of outgrown narratives, relationship patterns, and outdated beliefs that no longer resonate with you. While it hasn’t always been comfortable, shedding skin is what creates vital room to grow.

There’s nothing you need to “do” during this final eclipse in Scorpio, as eclipses unfold on their own time. Instead, focus on tending to your physical needs with extra care, keeping your schedule as open and flexible as possible, and resting amply."
