This Time Last Moon: Full Moon in Scorpio

Scorpio is one of the most complex zodiac signs and one that relishes the opportunity to go deep within themselves and really feel from their core. When the moon is in Scorpio, this allows every human on the planet, Scorpio or no, to take inspiration from this sign and go deep within ourselves and get to the bottom of what is going on in our worlds, and understand what situations and people exist only in our shallow waters. When the Full Moon is in Scorpio, this is intensified three-fold, and not only do we have the invitation to go deep within ourselves but also release intense situations and relationships that no longer serve us.

At 3.31 am on Tuesday 27th April 2021, we are experiencing a Full "Supermoon" in Scorpio. This is the perfect time for a rebirth, should you want one. If life is feeling stagnant, overly complicated, and unnecessarily difficult, this is the perfect time to change things up and release what no longer serves you. This invitation of release is particularly useful for those who want to turn a corner with their relationship with trauma and start the journey towards healing deep wounds.

On 7th May 2020, we experienced the last Full Moon in Scorpio. I want to take some time to reflect on the rebirth I have had within my own life since that last Full Moon. So what has happened to me since "this time last moon?" Read on below to find out:

During the lead-up to the Full Moon in Scorpio in 2020, my family was hit with the trauma of almost losing my Dad to COVID-19. What had started as merely a news story became a very real moment when we all were hit with the virus and suffered for the best part of a month. Dad had a very bad response to the virus, and was taken into intensive care and was hooked up to a ventilator for the best part of a month before his absolute miracle recovery. Even now, I still cannot quite believe how he has managed to get back to full health - especially when thinking about how ill he was.

Dad was released from the hospital on 6th May 2020 and this sparked a rebirth in all of our lives. Is it a coincidence that this happened during a Full Moon in Scorpio? I don't think so.

From 7th May 2020, my life completely transformed in front of my eyes. During June & July, I had a very severe crash in my mental health (what I now realise was a breakdown in order to have a breakthrough.) In August, I moved back to London into a new house with my brother, who has been a lockdown saviour. It was through this time that my clairsentience and clairaudience were really picking up. I didn't know those words at the time, I simply thought I was going insane. I picked up my tarot cards for the first time in a long time and everything just seemed to make sense. It seems like the spirits I was connecting to when asking for protection surrounding my Dad during his time in hospital were coming through strong to me and helping me understand more about my own purpose.

In September, I approached Pixie Carney, a reader/healer in London who had read for me before, about whether I had some sort of talent for reading and healing, and how I could hone these skills. It just so happened that I had contacted her in divine timing because space had just become available in her teaching circle, and so my journey with magickal practice began. Through this circle amongst some very powerful workers, I learned my foundations in grounding, protection, and connecting to Spirit with more clarity and authenticity. Pixie's guidance and teaching showed me the ways to new forms of healing open to me, and it was through her recommendation that I began my journey into mediumship at the London College of Psychics.

In October, my brother encouraged me to pursue these talents further and so I came up with the idea for my business, Mercury Pothocare. What started out as a generic candle business a couple of years before now had lots of new facets and a fully realised concept. On 5th November 2020, Mercury Pothocare officially launched after a very successful crowd-funding campaign.

It was around this time, too, that I began tuning in to "The Tarot Lady" Theresa Reed for her morning Tarot, Transits, and Tangents on Instagram. I can't remember how I found Theresa on Instagram, but I thank my lucky stars that I did because she has become a huge mentor to me in Tarot, Astrology, and business. I joined her Patreon and have learned so much about how to conduct myself as a professional tarot reader, coach, and candlemaker. It was through the community that Theresa creates in her work that I found a spiritual family that continues to inspire me and show up for me.

In the space of six months, Mercury Pothocare has gone from a newly launched business into a three-faceted company, selling Candles and Bathing Salts for ritual, Intuitive Tarot Readings, and Spiritual Life Coaching classes and courses. I am so grateful for the support I have received in the first six months of opening. Long may it continue to grow!

Looking back on my year since 7th May 2020, I honestly don't fully recognise the person I was because so much has evolved and changed. Whether I was conscious of it or not, I claimed my rebirth last year, and now the time is here again, and I am ready for what the next chapter holds for me, and for Mercury Pothocare.

How has your year changed since 7th May 2020? What rebirth have you gone through? I'd love to hear about it!

As always, I am sending you all a lot of Love and Pothocare,

Mercury x
