Transformation time! On April 29, 2018, at 8:58PM EST, sizzling Scorpio brings us a strong hit of spring fever during the full Pink Moon. Meow!
As an emotive water sign, feelings will run deep at this Scorpionic lunation—and we may be surprised by their intensity! It’s time to unlock that chamber of secrets and set them free. This alchemical full moon in shamanic Scorpio can help us transform our buried fears into pure power, but first, we have to plunge into the shadows.
Ritual: Revenge Fantasy Role Playing
Listen, people: As much as we all want to be enlightened and namaste, there are things in life that will make our blood boil! Suppressing “negative feelings” is not in anyone’s highest good. After all, the universe is made up of polarities. In order to elevate to bliss, we must also be in touch with our deep sadness; in order to feel true love, we must be willing to risk heartbreak. Neither emotion is better or worse; they simply coexist as a pair. Since Scorpio is the sign that rules revenge, this ritual is a bit of an “exorcism,” allowing us to release those pent-up feelings from our psyches—and cleanse our energetic fields in the process.
It’s time to role-play one of your revenge fantasies! Partner up with a trusted confidante for this exercise—someone loyal and empathetic who won’t judge your inner Darth Vader for unleashing. You will act as an avatar for each other’s worst enemies here, getting all that wrath out of your systems. Leave at least an hour for this exercise so that you can have a break afterwards to regroup and re-center! You might even feel a little lightheaded from letting go of all that energy.
Spend a few minutes talking to your partner about your nemesis, describing their personality, mannerisms and even disturbing qualities. Then, set a timer for 15 minutes. As your partner role-plays your enemy, let yourself say it all. Scream, swear; tell them how much they hurt you. Feelings may verge on violent, so consider bringing a baseball bat and a large cushion. When the emotions turn physical, pick up the bat and beat the pillow. We promise this will be an epic release!
When the timer ends, take three deep inhalations through your nose and exhale powerfully from your belly each time, making a “ha!” sound as you do. Spend at least five minutes debriefing with your partner. How was the experience for you? Step outside for some fresh air and wait at least fifteen minutes total before trading places and doing the exercise in reverse roles.
- Get your hair trimmed to snip off any stale energy that’s still lingering in your locks.
- Get matching tattoos with someone you love (friend, relative or S.O.) to make your bond that much more eternal.
- Dress in sultry black, the Scorpio color—or try a noir nail polish or lip color for the day.
- Treat yourself to an erotic novel or toy; or some warming massage oil.
- Clean out your social media lists, un-friending people who you haven’t talked to in years or who have betrayed you or hurt you in a way that is probably beyond repair. You don’t have to make it all better. Sometimes it’s best to just move on.
