The Full Moon on April 19th falls directly between Libra and Scorpio: two signs that very much complement one another. The air of Libra pulls out our need for balance, but also indecisiveness and fear of being alone. Funnily she’s not alone., but sharing space tonight with Scorpio. The water element channeling energy around Scorpio promotes passion and bravery. Talk about opposites colliding… but this is a night of harmony: a main craving for both signs.
Also important is the need to focus on air and water elements during the period between Spring & Summer Equinox, periods which channel rooting down into the earth more than other elements. Therefore, tonight is also very much about balance. Seeking the balance you need internally to prepare for the change of seasons from Spring into Summer.
If you’re a Summer baby, use this moon to release energies you hibernated through the winter and seek harmony for your intentions moving forward to be fully prepared and cleansed by the time Summer Equinox rolls around.
If you’re a Winter baby, you’re probably feeling that your season passed you too quickly. Take this time to marinate on what this time has been for you. Look back at March, how were you affected during Mercury’s Retrograde? If you were thrown off course, use this time to jump back on & reclaim your time.
Fall baes: This is your dormant period – but are you still doing the work? We’re hitting your half year point – take the time to curate the balance you need. Moon manifestations are strongest 6-months later: how can this practice prepare you for October? This is especially important if you are a Libra or Scorpio!
Spring loves: this is your time to shine! Use this moment to shed a layer of skin and become reborn during your season. Curating the balance of harmony between Libra & Scorpio into your daily life is a beautiful way to start…
This gathering of water and air elements provides us an important reminder to move like water and float in the air simultaneously. Grounding may not be what you need right now, can you challenge yourself to shift to be more adaptable and flexible, rather than still & firm? Such exercises are necessary for confidence and leadership.

WHAT IS REIKI?
Reiki, meaning ‘Universal Energy’ is an ancient and natural energy healing technique where the practitioner serves as a vessel to balance the subtle energies within our bodies. During a Reiki session, the practitioner uses a light touch to channel universal energy to a patient’s body.
The purpose of Reiki Healing is to promote relaxation and stress reduction as well as restore balance and eliminate blockages. This process addresses physical, emotional, mental and spiritual imbalances as well as aligns the chakras.
Benefits of Reiki include:
- Stress reduction
- Chakra (energy center) alignment
- Restores energy level balance throughout the body
- Improves concentration and perception/intuition
- Eliminates energy blockages
- Provides relaxation
- Assists with healing injuries
- Enhances immune system
IS IT OKAY TO BE A MEDITATION/REIKI NEWBIE?
YES! We will walk you through the basics and make sure we're focusing on the areas that best serve you during this workshop and its greater themes. This is why we keep circles small and have two leaders to be able to individually assist as well.
