On Sunday, April 29th, 2018 (5:58 PM PST and 8:58 EST), the Full Moon glows in the watery and penetrating sign of Scorpio. The sign that is here to make the unconscious conscious, the sign that lives in the depths, and is quite fluent in the language of death and rebirth. Scorpio energy knows how to feel, she knows how to penetrate your soul and pull back the veil on your inner most secrets. She is wired to look deeply, and she needs truth almost as much as the air she breathes. I’m not talking about a meaning of life kind of truth, but rather the truth of a moment, the truth of what it exists, and the truth of who you are. She’s concerned with what’s real and if you lie to her, it’s sure to bring out the scorpions from within. We wouldn’t want that, would we?
So what does all this mean for this Full Moon? It’s likely that emotions intensify, the truth is exposed, and there might be a drive to connect more deeply, claim your power, and open to that which is ready for you to transform. I mean that doesn’t sound too bad, does it? And yet sometimes the truth can be scary, sometimes it feels like too much to hold, and sometimes the truth causes us to hide. Scorpio is asking you to take a deep dive within and claim what is real for yourself. She’s asking you to peel back the layers so that you can see your life more clearly. If you hide from your truth, you can be sure those fears lurking in the depths will eventually come to drag you down or even worse they will spill out sideways onto others. And let’s be honest, if that happens things are going to get quite messy real fast.
This Scorpio Moon and Taurus Sun are making a harsh aspect with the nodes of the moon in Leo and Aquarius and this might suggest that you feel a longing to be seen and yet also terrified of what that might mean. Here's a hint, with this aspect allow yourself the freedom to express. Don't hold back. To bear one’s soul in the face of another is powerful and yet it’s also completely vulnerable. The key is to remember that the other person doesn’t hold the power of who you are unless you let them. If someone doesn’t feel safe enough for you to reveal your truth, then maybe that someone isn’t part of your soul tribe.
So maybe ask yourself some of these questions. What are the parts of me that I’ve been too afraid to share? Who are the ones that I can trust with my soul? What would it take for me to show you all of me? What am I hiding even from myself? What it would look like for someone to fully see me? How might I make the invisible visible? Transformation occurs when we can first accept what is present. So sit with these questions. Feel them. Learn them. Know them. Embrace them and instead of trying to answer them, live them.
The good news is that this Full Moon makes a friendly connection to Saturn, the planet of discipline, hard work, limits, and lessons, so it will help you feel more grounded. It will offer you an opportunity to stand firmly in the truth of who you are and that is most definitely something worth claiming.
While we all might feel pulled during this Full Moon to look deeply within, we will each experience this lunar energy differently depending on where Scorpio is located in your chart or if you have a natal planet associated with it. If you would like a more personalized reading, I’d love to set up a session with you.
