About the Scorpio Full Moon
The Moon is not all too comfortable in the sign of Scorpio, as she is opposite her home sign of Taurus. Lunations when the Moon is in this powerful, dramatic and psychological sign are often times of working with your inner wounds, unhealed trauma and deeper emotional complexes.
These Moons are often linked to transformation, even if on a subtle, personal level. And, with Full Moons generally being a time of high emotion, with the added energy of Scorpio, we will need to keep ourselves in check and behave with gentleness.
Keywords for this Scorpio Full Moon are: healing, intensity, communication, depth, drama, letting go, surrender, retreat and empowerment.
Energies affecting this Full Moon
Mars and Pluto co-rule the sign of Scorpio in modern Astrology. Both are planets associated with assertion, control, power and drive. Mars is in Aquarius at the time of this Full Moon, and in a passionate trine with Venus in Gemini.
And so, communication is a big driver over this time, and there’s a strong emphasis on mental connection. Which fits, seeing as most of us are in lockdown and have to reply on the internet to relate to others, rather than body language!
Mercury is also very close to this Full Moon, which highlights this theme even more and reminds us to find the balance of head and heart, to not act purely from emotion, yet to also not act solely from our rational, either.
We may feel challenged to put our strong feelings into words, but when we are patient and methodical, as well as grounded and sensitive, we can make some headway. This is a great time to find empowerment in letting go of outworn forms of communication, or outworn communication styles.
Perhaps you have been on the defence lately, or have used language that is attacking or judgemental. This is a highly strung period of time in which all of us can learn to be less reactive!
The trine to Neptune over this Full Moon does offer compassion, gentleness and insight – it helps us to perhaps reach out and connect to a spiritual or divine energy to help us through a challenging period.
How to make the Most of the Full Moon for each Sign
Aries and Aries Rising
Money matters hit a peak, Aries, and perhaps you’ve been waiting for an answer on a financially related topic for quite some time – months, in fact. This Full Moon will most likely give you the answer that you have been looking for. Watch your words carefully.
Taurus and Taurus Rising
This Full Moon highlights your relationship zone, Taurus. This could be a time in which you and a partner, close friend or associate come to a point of disagreement and may have to let go, surrender or find some middle ground. It’ll help to talk it out.
Gemini and Gemini Rising
A part of you may be enjoying this break from the world, Gemini, yet a part of you misses the daily drama of life, too. Be careful that you don’t stir up trouble at home just for the sake of it, and find a good balance of rest and work. You could be a touch exhausted over this Full Moon.
Cancer and Cancer Rising
This is a very emotional Full Moon for you, Cancer. Emotions could fly high, especially in your relationships or with your kids. You’re missing friends, but at the same time, there could be a moment to find opportunity to connect and communicate with those you love.
Leo and Leo Rising
It’s very tempting to raise your voice at those in authority, Leo, or with your partner over this time. You may be inviting in more drama than you bargained for, so find some self-control. Things hit a crisis or climax point in work, home and love.
Virgo and Virgo Rising
For you, Virgo, communication and conveying yourself clearly is even more important over this Full Moon. This is emphasized when it comes to work and just in your day to day life. Huge insights can happen now if you take a moment to look within.
Scorpio and Scorpio Rising
A Full Moon in your own signs asks you to look at personal life events that have been building over the last couple of months and are coming to an end now. A shift in direction is indicated, as well as a shift in relationship.
Libra and Libra Rising
Tensions may rise financially, Libra, and you may be faced with an unwelcome power struggle over resources, whether in your relationship or at work. Assert yourself, and try not to leap to conclusions too fast or make a decision you regret.
Sagittarius and Sagittarius Rising
This Full Moon may have you on edge, Sagittarius, as inner wounds and mental anxieties emerge, asking you to take a look and take responsibility. So much personal healing can happen now, if you just allow the feelings to flow!
Capricorn and Capricorn Rising
Your earnings could change now, Capricorn, for better or for worse. The work and energy you have put in pay off now, and you’ll be able to see the tangible results of the goals you have been working towards. Take care not to be aggressive in your approach.
Aquarius and Aquarius Rising
Work may take off hugely for you, Aquarius, and you could find yourself inundated with offers and contracts – or the opposite. You may be getting very caught in split-second decision making, or even feel overwhelmed. Don’t allow anyone to take your power away from you.
Pisces and Pisces Rising
Anything education-related or spiritual had special meaning for you over this Full Moon, Pisces. It’s as if you have reached a high point here, and need to decide what to keep and what to do away with. There’s change ahead, but not necessarily negative.
3 Tips for making the most of the Full Moon in Scorpio
1. Communicate with Care
It’s easy to get swept up in pointless arguments and to try and push your point over this Full Moon. You may feel powerless or even threatened and your response is to attack. Instead, find that sense of peace and calm in the storm.
2. Face your Stuff
Scorpio is a sign that is relentless. It demands that you take responsibility for your feelings, and to take control of yourself instead of others and outside circumstances. Face your wounds, because they’re an opportunity to heal.
3. Surrender and Trust
There’s soft energy available now, and if you relax and let go, you’ll find yourself in flow with the way things are going. Trust that flow, and go where it takes you.
Summary of the Full Moon in Scorpio
Communication is a big theme over this Full Moon in Scorpio, as is finding the balance of rational and emotional. We have to be careful of emotional drama over this time, and watch for defensive or aggressive stances which just create alienation.
This Full Moon offers a direct connection with Divine, or Higher energy, if we look for it. There are opportunities to let go and surrender, and to subtly heal even more.
