Wesak Moon, Festival of Buddha
May 15th @9:14 PM PDT
This is a super powerful, extremely emotional Full Moon! And, since it is an Eclipse, it is intensified x 2! Just what we need, right? Especially in the middle of a Mercury RX! Well, here’s the good news, and the bad news….
Bad news first….This lunation makes a square, (challenge), to both the Sun and Moon. This means it will create additional stress and tension between two opposing views.Stubbornness and resistance to change creates stagnate energy, which then bubbles up needing to be release. Much like a tea kettle.. when ready,it starts to whistle, and you know it is time to turn the heat off….or you’ll have a mess on your stove! All the Cosmic energy this month is bringing unresolved issues to a boil! By addressing them….calmly……you can relieve the pressure!
On the Good News side, Mars is kissing Neptune in Pisces, creating a huge opening for the Buddha energy to easily enter and allow for compassion, healing and forgiveness! Remember, forgiveness releases YOU as well as the other person.
* For a greater understanding, here is a note on the Buddha Full Moon……Every year when the Sun is in Taurus and the Full Moon is in Scorpio, the annual descent of the Buddha takes place. It is quite a mystical and magical moon, and one that allows us to receive much needed love, compassion, guidance, and blessings from our Spiritual Masters in the etheric realm. (Mars kissing Neptune in Pisces!) Esoteric teachings tell us that there are Great Master of Light and Sound residing in the Himalayas in a mystical valley called Shamballa,a sacred place that doesn’t exist in the physical realm.The Wesak Festival is generally known as the Festival of the Buddha. In legend, He is said to make an annual appearance at exact time of the Full Moon in Scorpio. He appears for a brief period and enacts a water ceremony before his great brother, the Christ, and an assembly of Spiritual disciples. It is said that these Masters descend from Shamballa to bless mankind with their grace, and to offer guidance! And I must say, it is well timed this year as we continue to change our world, for the better!
During this Spiritual high point of the year our greatest service is to prepare ourselves, Spiritually, for the energy pouring into humanity, and to hold the inner connection in daily life, visualizing ourselves as a pure channel of light .The goal to live consciously within the aura of the spiritual group to which our soul naturally belongs.
As you take your time to prepare for this most amazing FM energy, look at all of the areas of your life where you are holding on to the need to be right…..or holding back love and appreciation to “GET EVEN”, and where you don’t forgive yourself. It is a powerful time of deep soul searching. This is the opportunity to release and move forward!
Remember, Full Moons occur when the Sun and Moon are in opposite signs. Naturally, it is a time when what is hidden comes into the light, and we seek to BALANCE any energy that is lurking below the surface the we are unaware of! The Eclipse intensifies the energy x 2!!!
Also….The Transformational energy of the Scorpio FM Eclipse will bring focus to your money, finances, power, abuse of power, sexuality, sensuality and intimacy. Self worth and your values will also come in to play.
There will be a lot of passionate energy flying around which can either be very motivating and inspiring, or overwhelming and chaotic! You will want to watch out for and release any jealousy or obsessions, curb impulsive purchases that create future debt, and misusing power that is given you….Karma is watching!
Moonstone…always to honor the moon and set a new cycle in motion.
Malachite for it’s transformative and releasing powers!

“Three things cannot be long hidden: the Sun, the Moon, and the Truth” The Buddha
“Dramatic changes are in store…such changes will likely be unexpected ones!”
Remember, Eclipses do for us what we can’t or won’t do for ourselves…. always for our highest and greatest good!
Go out under the gorgeous Moonlight…you will be able to watch the Eclipse! And, know it is safe to watch a Lunar Eclipse with the naked eye! It starts at 9:14 PM PDT, and will last about 1 1/2 hours! Have your journal, and take a few of the special crystals listed! Try to be out at the exact time….as that is when the Buddha is said to send his blessings, and we all want to soak those up!
Pick a beautiful space, get comfortable. This is your time to be out under these powerful Cosmic Vibes, and it is so exciting to actually watch the Eclipse!!!
Before you begin, take in 3 slow breaths, becoming fully present!
*Open yourself to RECEIVING the abundance of Universal Grace that is present!
*What needs to change in my life?
* How can I best boost my self esteem?
*What resources are available that I can use more efficiently?
*What empowers me…what can I release that dis- empowers me?
*How can I empower those around me?
*What do I need to release in order to live my life more fully?
*Who do I need to forgive?
*These are challenging times….change can be difficult….Lean into Love!!!
This is the opportunity to get really honest with where you are, where you want to go,
and receive extra blessings from the Spiritual Hierarchy!
Hang out under this amazing Eclipse energy as long as you can….Just Be and Receive!
When you are complete, humbly offer a prayer of gratitude and thanksgiving for all the gifts you received, and will continue to receive. Be sure to send extra love and compassion to all the hot spots in the world…particularly to the people of Ukraine.
Ask and it is Given!!!
Sending you all Love, Compassion, Abundance and Peace
