full Moon in Scorpio
mAy 18, 2019
The Full Moon is powerful and beautiful. A bright light in the night sky that catches our attention. For many it is time every month where our emotions build and we have realizations and at times a sense of completion. When the Moon is full the Moon and Sun are in an exact opposition, creating a tension between the two luminaries and the signs they are in. This opposition also offers a gift in the high expression of the two signs for their differences can balance each other. This current Full Moon is with the Sun in Taurus and the Moon in Libra.
During this Full Moon at 27 degrees, 38 minutes in the water sign of Scorpio, honest emotional interactions and the transformation that can occur are powerful possibilities. The internal gaze is penetrating seeking only the truth and With Scorpio’s natural ability to focus, this Moon will bring up deep emotions. What has been held back, buried within your consciousness can come up to the surface. Secrets, wounds and old memories that need recognition, reflection or release have found the perfect emotional pathway to being revealed.
During such intense emotional sharing, Mercury in Taurus in a conjunction with the Sun can offer a calmer mental approach through patient listening and communication, but also be aware of some of the shadow of Taurus, falling into unyielding stubbornness and refusing to talk.
Mars now in Cancer has the ability to bring in courage and empathy during this time and also speaks of us finding the courage to be vulnerable. To reveal what is needed. If fear takes over Mars can shut down and hide or react in anger that may not bring the desired understanding or result.
Pluto the ruler of Scorpio is retrograde and is giving us all the opportunity to go back and look at how well we are living our life with a sense of meaningful purpose. Are we activating our self-discipline, commitment and determination to develop something that we truly care about? That would add value to our lives and the lives of others in some manner? Pluto is a serious planet and in the sign of Capricorn speaks of our integrity, our inner authority and also very much of looking at the areas in our lives and ourselves that can benefit from honest assessment and healing. The house that Pluto is currently in, within your birthchart can offer additional understanding to this Moon energy.
The cycles of the Moon help us to gain deeper self-understanding through our emotions and desires. This Full Moon in Scorpio can help us to reach deep, with the desire to peel away another layer and to facilitate healing and empowerment. With that said I realize that there are those that have a harder time than others in navigating emotions and healing work and life. There is no shame in that. For the most part we have all been there. And I encourage anyone to reach out to loved ones or a professional that can offer help in any deep healing work. Even in the personal sharing of emotions during difficult times. Please reach out and if there is anything I can do for any of you, please let me know.
May this Moon bring you a deeper connection to all the deep underlying motivations that hold you back and the ones that awaken, heal and move you forward in your personal journey.
