On Monday the 26th, the moon enters Scorpio, creating what is known in astrology as the Full Moon. We will have two luminaries facing each other as opposites and complementary signs. In this case, the sun is in Taurus, and the moon is in Scorpio. When we talk about opposite and complementary signs, we are talking about two different sides that will have to reach a middle point, a balance. This is the opportunity of the week, being able to reach that balance.
Both Scorpio and Taurus are possessive and controlling signs, as well as committed and faithful. Taurus is on a material level, and Scorpio is on an emotional level. Taurus, an earth sign ruled by Venus, represents values, physicality, comfort, practicality, beauty, and enjoyment. On the contrary, Scorpio, a water sign ruled by Mars, is intense, chaotic, instinctive, psychic, emotional, manipulative, intimate, and always curious. This week, it is up to us to be able to find the balance between these two energies and reconcile them in our favor. What is clear is that the challenge of the week is to try not to control things or situations, to understand that at the end of the day, we are not in control of anything, and we have to learn to trust the Creator.
The Full Moon is a moment of fulfillment. Kabbalistically, it is considered as a cosmic window where we can connect with the tzadikim or righteous souls, who give us their support on the eve of this opposition. That will happen on the 26th at night. When there is a Full Moon, it is time to harvest what was sown in the New Moon; it is a moment of illumination and splendor—the highest point that the moon will reach and, therefore, a moment of culmination. As the moon enters this phase, beginnings are no longer recommended since it is the moment of splendor, conclusion, and closure. In this period, we are more exposed to the social and public sphere; we are more seen. Parties, meetings, inaugurations, and social events are favored. Even social media will have more movement during these days.
The sun, Mercury, Venus, and Uranus are in the sign of Taurus. With it being the most influential sign during the week, the energy will feel static and heavy. Taurus is a sign that does not like movement, change, confrontation, and above all, discomfort. Under this influence, we seek practicality, and we are more conservative, tenacious, and hard-working. However, the cosmos is going to push us out of this state of comfort since there is a certain tension that will make us uncomfortable and forces us to move. Take the opportunity to overcome laziness, and remember that it is precisely in moments of discomfort that we can reveal more Light. Beware of inflexibility and stubbornness. Decisions made under the influence of Taurus can be difficult to change in the future.
On Sunday 25th and Monday 26th, we will feel the need to seek harmony and teamwork. It is a good time to nurture any type of relationship, as we enjoy tact and diplomacy.
On Tuesday 27th and Wednesday 28th, emotions are very intense and tension increases. During these days, try to control your jealousy and resentment, and above all, let go. Do not try to control everything, remember that these are days to seek balance and harmony.
On Thursday 29th, unlike the rest of the week, we will feel more enthusiasm and energy. It will feel more positive and more optimistic. Try to enjoy these days to the fullest. Being outdoors is recommended, as it is a day that supports fun, recreation, and parties.
Friday the 30th and Saturday the 1st of May, are more serious days where discipline and work predominate. They are beneficial days to plan and create structures. Be careful with confronting authority; these days, you can achieve goals and results.
The week looks very practical, with a great capacity to manifest, to achieve goals, and yield results. There is little sensitivity, so each of us must incorporate that awareness of empathy, love, and mercy.
The 30th is Lag b'Omer, a unique cosmic window. We have the opportunity to connect with the energy of the great Kabbalist Rav Shimon Bar Yochai, the author of the Zohar, which is the backbone of the wisdom of Kabbalah and the Kabbalah Center. On this day, we have his assistance and support. Rav Shimoncame completely out of his comfort zone by living in a cave, drinking water, and eating carob trees, leaving aside the comfort and bondage of the physical world.
May the energy of Rav Shimon help us this week to get out of the comfort of the sign of Taurus and to value the most important thing, our connection with the Creatorthat goes beyond the physical.
