The Moon is currently reaching its monthly peak, swelling in size night by night. This time, the Full Moon takes place in the deep & dark water sign of Scorpio, the sign of healing, regeneration & transformation.
Scorpio rules sex, money, death & rebirth and all things taboo. It’s linked to the psyche, what’s hidden and Scorpio’s keyword is power, whether you use it to good or bad effect. We’re hanging out in the underworld when we’re in Scorpio’s domain.
Full Moon Energy
Full Moons are a time when emotions are heightened and important matters can be brought to completion. The light of the Full Moon is exposing and in Scorpio, you can enter into the dark, untouched places releasing emotions that have been hidden away or ignored. Encounter the shadow side of life and by digging deep, you find the part of yourself that’s fearless, authentic, real.
This is not always a comfortable place to be. If you are a Scorpio or have Scorpio planets in your chart, you might already understand that a journey through the underworld can unearth hidden riches. When you explore and embrace all of life, the dark as well as the light, you tend to emerge wiser and stronger for the experience.
If the Full Moon in Scorpio wasn’t powerful enough on its own, its energy is intensified thanks to its closest planetary aspect to Pluto, Scorpio’s co-ruler. The Sun in Taurus is trine Pluto in Capricorn on Tuesday 9th May and this is a supportive connection. Whereas a difficult Pluto can bring destruction or loss, right now the themes of regeneration, transformation and renewal are strong.
Yet that might not stop you veering away from pain now, wanting to numb yourself from feeling too deeply, running from difficult emotions. Even when you know that it’s only when you open your heart fully and dare to love completely that you experience life at its fullest and most vibrant intensity, it can still be a tough call.
The Cycle of Life & Death
The cycle of life and death is clearly shown through the opposite signs of Taurus and Scorpio. During this Full Moon, the Sun is in the earth sign Taurus linked to nature and growth and the Moon is in the water sign Scorpio linked to death but also rebirth. Regeneration, compost, the eternal cycle of life and death which is never-ending.
The Full Moon in Scorpio can highlight where you need to be healed and where best to channel your own healing abilities. You might uncover issues around power, where you feel powerless, where you’re in control and where you can tap into your own inner power to accomplish incredible feats.
If ever there was a time to pick up your lightsaber and harness the laser energy available with strength and determination, it’s now. Be fearless!
May the Force of the Scorpio Full Moon be with you.
