Full Moons are revelatory, and Scorpio sees into the hidden bones, the underpinnings, of things… This is lunar Beltane, the night of purifying light.

“And it’s one for seeing the energetic spine of an issue. It might be one that has a psychic hold, whose roots take time and courage to dig out. If you’re wrestling with an issue, ask for clear messages, for your next right step in transforming it…”

“Scorpio’s psychic-emotional power is both feared and respected. Releasing something at this Full Moon can feel daunting in some way — like it’s final, no turning back. Scorpio is often called the all-or-nothing sign. If you risk it, and surrender, the rewards are big…”

“Scorpio’s regenerative force helps you clear out the psyche, and come home to feeling good. Talking about coming home, I’d like to point out that Taurus and Scorpio are fixed signs that seek security. Where is true security to be found in a time like ours?

“Wise Scorpio finds it by plumbing the depths, and transforming again and again, to stand on a sense of real integrity. Instead of checking out, we gain soul power by withstanding, and being creative where we can, in the face of adversity. True confidence emerges when there’s nothing to fear within or without.”

New Moon in Scorpio

Cathy Pagano says, "This week’s Scorpio New Moon is also a partial solar eclipse, visible in most of North America and eastern Asia.  A solar eclipse occurs when the Sun, Moon and Earth align and we see the Moon moving across the face of the Sun.  

“This alignment disrupts the usual flow of solar energy, dissolving old energy and behavior patterns so something new can manifest

“At a solar eclipse, we get to see the planting of the solar seed in the New Moon’s womb, and are therefore more conscious of what the possibilities are for this cycle.  As you can see, solar eclipses create extra powerful New Moons, marking times of major endings and new beginnings to an aspect of your life…”

“Scorpio wants us to feel what the right action is to take, and that means seriously looking into the unconscious to understand what we really feel and want out of life.  Not what we think we should want.   Not what we’ve been told to want.  But what we truly desire.  

“And that means understanding our feelings of vulnerability and our fears concerning betrayal, violence, rejection and self-worth, and the unconscious defense mechanisms which keep us from our authentic truth.”

“…Scorpio’s strength is that it isn’t afraid of the Dark, and so when the Sun is in Scorpio, it is a perfect time to look at our Shadows andsee what we’ve been in fear of, suppressing and repressing.”

“When we can look within and see how those stuck emotional patterns keep us from what we truly want in life, we canconsciously choose to shed those old patterns like a snake skin.  What may have protected us in the past no longer serves our on-going life and we have to die to an old way of being and acting, to be re-born to a higher level of consciousness.”

Full Moon In Scorpio

Like a snake shedding it's skin, it's time for rebirth. Mystic Mamma says, "We have been integrating what has been brought to light in the past few weeks and are ready to move out of these deeper waters. This Full Moon in Scorpio illuminates the last of it, and calls for us to gather our courage and take action that will enable us to  move forward.

Full Moon

Tonight is the Full Moon in Taurus! There is a lot of energy around this. Seams to be a time of digging deep to align with your truth and greater path. What Spencer King wrote about on her blog, The Sphinx and The Milky Way, really resonates with me today...

The days leading up to this Full Moon have been tough ones. Since the New Moon two weeks ago we have been navigating some pretty heavy and sticky energy. You are not alone in this. And now especially with the Full Moon here emotions have reached their climax. As you start to learn about how the Moon effects you during it's different phases you can start to have a deeper awareness of events in your life. You will know that part of the reason things are intense right now is because of the Moon. This awareness helps create space during difficult times, it will allow you to take a deeper breath and let go of some of the weight of what's going on around you. Full Moon's also magnify everything! How is the moon acting as a mirror for you, what is it showing you? How are the relationships in your life acting as mirrors right now?


Also, there has been tons of resistance in the air in the past week. Especially if you are a teacher, leader, or someone who is being asked to risk out in the world. I have really noticed that those of us who are being asked to take on a greater purposes are being met with lots of resistance to do so and extra challenges. How are you handling this? Are you backing down, playing small, canceling things, not showing up? Or are you resilient and navigating it all in the name of staying on your path?


With the Full Moon in Taurus and the Sun in Scorpio the energy is so physical and deep right now, our brains are having a really hard time understanding what's going on inside of us, and the deep shifts that are taking place. You don't have to know what's going on, just keep trusting it. It is a really uncomfortable time, so much buried stuff is being pushed to the surface. Just let the discomfort be your guide, when you feel it you know you are bumping up against an area that wants to heal, that wants to be transformed. This path is not for everyone, it takes courage to step up and evolve and heal. Let your desire for this lead the way during this time. It might not be pretty, it might get super messy for a while, it might be scary, it will most likely be uncomfortable, but it is so needed. It's what your soul is asking for.
