The Healing Scorpion Moon Ritual Supermoon and Cinco De Mayo May 5, 2012

A Supermoon is predicted for this Saturday.
The Healing Scorpio Moon
The venom of a scorpion can be deadly. Similarly, the stinging sarcasm of Scorpio hits frighteningly close to home. But like the Egyptiam goddess Serket (her name means both "She who thightens the throat" and "She who causes the throat to breathe"), what hurts us can also heal us. In fact, scorpions venom has long been deemed an analgesic by the Chinese and is now being studied in Egype as a painkiller.
On this Scorpio Full Moon, have the courage to move through pain into healing and strength. Take some time for an uninterrupted Scorpio meditation. Think about a painful personal experience. Start small, with a fairly minor hurt, and move up gradually to more difficult situations. Close your eyes and breathe deeply. Imagine walking through a desert with scrub bushes, cacti and many different sizes of rocks. One small rock draws your attention--you turn it over to find a scorpion that stings you. The sting evokes all the memories and the pain of that experience you called to mind. Allow the pain to pass through you without resistance. How did you survive? What did you learn? How can it make you stronger? Feel resilience and strength fill your being as your healing begins.
