Tonight brings the Conjunction of Venus and Uranus – Blue, Full Moon in Scorpio. This Moon has also been known as the Full Corn Planting Moon and the Milk Moon. Since this is the third of four Full Moons in this season, it is known as a Blue Moon. Many of us adopt today an ‘all-or-nothing’ attitude. We must stand firm between two kinds of madness: the belief that we can do anything, and the belief that we can do nothing. Sometimes we should choose the middle path, one of acceptance of what is.
This Moon shines down calmness to help release our sorrows. Regrets cause sorrow. Regrets for missed opportunities will vanish as we try to make wise choices. Regrets for hurtful things we have done to others can be healed by making amends to the best of our ability. Regrets and self-condemnation for what we’ve done only destroys the self-esteem we could have had by behaving better. Learn from your experiences, then apply what you’ve learned. Regrets can be important learning tools for the future. It’s a waste of energy to dwell on the negative. Forgive yourself if you need to and move on. Remember that everyone makes mistakes, you are not the only one. Everything happens for a reason.
