This Episode's Theme...
#UNFILTERED Moon Musings :: Full Moon in Scorpio :: Riding Emotional Waves, Pain + Pleasure, & Body Sovereignty
In this episode, Venessa and Megan talk about this full moon in watery Scorpio. We’ve been feelin all the FEELZ this week leading up to this full moon, how about you? We talk about the timing of this full moon and planetary connections to the elements of control and power... and how this impacts the organs and 1st & 2nd chakras that Scorpio rules: reproductive organs, our genes, and colon.
We discuss the nervous system and importance of feeling safe and grounded to support ourselves, our fave books right now on the topics of PLEASURE and SEX, and of course, practical tools and healing foods to carry us through shaky grounds and turbulent waters.
Plus a suggested ancient practice for this full moon in Scorpio to support our connection to Mama Earth, wild wisdom, and our sovereignty.
