Your Weekly Oracle Reading (05.16.2022)
Your destiny is unfolding.
Happy Monday, friends!
First of all—whew. And if you resonate with that, then you know exactly what I’m talking about.
In addition to a brand new week, today marks the Scorpio Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse. I will not be releasing a ritual for this moon, but before I dive into this reading, I wanted to touch on some themes that might be coming up at this time.
This lunar eclipse is the sequel to the partial solar eclipse we experienced with the Taurus New Moon earlier this month (so I giggled when we got both of those cards).
There is a lot happening in the cosmos right now, and it’s said that this full moon eclipse has the power of three full moons in one, so if you’re feeling all over the place and your emotions are taking over, just surrender to it. You’ve been through plenty of eclipses before.
Because of this moon’s proximity to the lunar south node, there’s a lot of releasing here. Anything that’s not aligned with your destiny (or north node) will be cleared. Themes surrounding relationships, finances, deep secrets and destructive habits will also be highlighted.
If you’re familiar with your birth chart, or have access to it, you may find it beneficial to look up your north and south nodes, and to see which house Scorpio rules in your chart, as these areas will be impacted during this full moon.
This is a time of deep transformation, and I know that can sound so frivolous at this point and annoying, because we’re exhausted, but trust that not all releases and transformations are heavy and dreadful. There’s opportunity for fated opportunities at this time, too! You’re aligning with your destiny.
I decided to use my girl Esoteric Esa’s Modern Spiritual Latina Oracle Deck for this week’s reading, and it’s clear why.
Not only did we receive the full moon and new moon cards, but we got divine feminine and bottom of the deck was divine masculine. I mean, you should’ve seen my face.
So many of us are reaching a transformational point of integration in our lives. This last New Moon really solidified this next chapter, and the current full moon is putting things into motion.
With the DF card here, many who resonate with this reading have been on an ongoing cycle of healing their mother wounds and reconnecting with their higher wisdom. Perhaps you realized that you needed to mother yourself the way you wished your mother would mother you. Perhaps you realized that the critical voice in your mind is actually your mother. Perhaps you realized that the codependent cycles within relationships was stemming from an unhealthy attachment to your mother.
Regardless, these energies are finally coming into balance.
You’re redefining what the mother and father archetype mean to you, and you’re showing up for yourself the way you’ve always needed. By becoming clear on what you want moving forward, you’re creating space for new growth and utilizing your DM energy to maintain focus, courage and aligned action.
Trust that any triggers (whether through certain people or situations) were only done to help you move further on this path. With Mercury in Retrograde, as well, things may have been incredibly unpredictable and frustrating this last week, but you’re being asked to flow.
Take notice where you cling to control, and why. Sometimes we’re gripping so tightly to things that don’t actually matter, but we latch onto the principle and end up perpetuating a cycle of fear, worry or anger that is just a waste of energy.
Don’t forget to breathe.
Keep flexing these spiritual muscles that you’ve been working on. Learn how to implement them in this realm and reality. This is when embodiment happens. This is where integration happens.
This is what you’ve been working so hard for.
Regardless, there’s a feeling of completion and harmony here. We’re seeing two sets of “opposites” in one spread (full moon/new moon, divine feminine/divine masculine). Union is here, because union is happening within you.
Before I get into the numerology of this spread, the numbers 28, 3, 13 might be significant to you, or significant days of the month for you. If that resonates, this is just further confirmation that this reading is for you.
The numerology of this reading is 44, which reduces to an 8. According to numerology, “the number 8 is the achiever and measures life by the goals it reaches. It has good business sense, a powerful presence, and a strong drive for success. The 8 is also a symbol of balance—you can see it in its symmetrical shape. For every blessing it receives, it puts one back out to the universe.”
Additionally, 44, which is considered a Master Number, symbolizes the creation of a firm ground for the present and future generations.
You’re doing it.
Take extra care of yourselves this week. Make sure to ground, tend to your mind, body, soul and spirit.
