The Scorpio Full Moon Lunar Eclipse peaks on May 5th, 2023. This Eclipse may bring sudden endings, reveal secrets, or stir past events that need our attention. While there is a heaviness attached to this Eclipse, it also seems that the Universe is reminding us to surrender, find our freedom, and activate a sense of curiosity and hope about what is ahead.
Trust whatever is released from your life under this Eclipse. Use it to fuel a greater sense of freedom and to shift your life to a new chapter that is more aligned.
Here is a ritual to guide you through these energies:
Scorpio Lunar Eclipse Ritual
This ritual is best done anytime between April 26- May 15, 2023
You will need:
- Aura cleansing tool of choice
- Heart Drumming Mediation
- Pen and Paper
- A few cubes of ice
- A plate
- Foods such as fruits/nuts/chocolate (as close to nature as possible)
- Scorpio Lunar Eclipse Reading
1.) Begin your ritual with the Heart Drumming Meditation. This active meditation is designed to open your heart energies, rebalance your chakras, and activate the energy of compassion. It is the perfect way to begin the rest of this ritual.
2.) Once your meditation is complete, get your pen and paper and choose one of the following journal prompts. You can also just free-flow write whatever comes to your mind if you prefer:
- “I want to release….”
- “I feel most blocked when….”
- “Habits that no longer serve me are….”
- “I stress too much about….”
- “It’s time to stop…”
- “I release my control over….”
Aim to write for at least 10-20 minutes. Encourage yourself to dig deep. After writing, read over what you have written and reflect on any insights or ah-ha moments. If you have identified things you wish to release, perhaps think about ways to support yourself in doing so, or alternative actions you can take instead.
3.) Take your papers, and on your next exhale, begin ripping them into strips. Imagine that on every rip, you are actively releasing and letting go of all that no longer serves you. You can also recite the following as you tear-
“Under the light of Scorpio Lunar Eclipse, I ask that all that no longer serves me, all that holds me back and keeps me playing small, all that inhibits me from being my truest self and living my most authentic life, is gently and effortlessly released from my life. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.”
4.) Place your ripped papers on the plate and put your ice cubes on top. The ice melting over your papers is symbolic for releasing, evaporating, and letting go of what no longer serves you.
5.) As the ice melts, take your aura cleansing tool of choice and begin clearing the energy of your aura and your surroundings. As you do this, feel free to recite the following –
“I feel any heaviness disappear. I am lighter; I am clear. My aura shines bright; my aura is balanced. I am aligned; I am standing in my magic.”
6.) Now eat your food, allowing it to ground you on each bite. Allow the food to bring you back down into your body. Thank Mother Earth for the food you are eating.
7.) As you enjoy your snack, do your Scorpio Full Moon Lunar Eclipse Reading. Your intuition should be heightened, so trust any messages or intuitive instincts that arise through this reading.
8.) Once the ice has melted, you can discard the papers.
Your ritual is complete! Lunar Eclipse blessings to you!
