*FULL MOON* in SCORPIO opens a gateway to our truest depths, where we can really tune in to our hearts deepest desires, and gleam our truest reflection.
If we can take this time to sit with ourselves, and be truthful about all we reject and deny, we can uncover, untangle and reclaim ourselves in our fullness.
We are both light and shadow, dancing and meeting each other in each other, to be ultimately reconciled within.
Scorpio reminds us to take take pleasure in the journey and allow our watery depths to surface, cleanse, heal and empower.
“…what we need under a Scorpio Moon is connection – deep, intimate, powerful connection to another.
Whilst this sign is linked to sex, the intimacy here is not necessarily sexual – it’s about feeling understood, known, heard and seen. But before we can truly be seen by another, we need to connect with ourselves…
…the Moon’s sextile to Scorpio ruler Pluto. This is a supportive aspect that encourages us to get rid of dead wood, to challenge ourselves to change.
Mars, the co-ruler of Scorpio is not quite so well placed as he is waxing to a square with Neptune. Underneath everything we may be feeling a little vulnerable and unsure of ourselves. Motivation may be dissipating or perhaps you’re just unsure of the goal you are trying to achieve.
As the Full Moon is trine to Neptune though, intuition is riding high – you just need to trust that inner voice. Can you trust it? Mercury is just past a conjunction with Uranus; mentally, we’ve been getting a wake-up call and we’ve begun to see things differently. Flashes of knowing and light-bulb ideas stimulate the desire to break free. Under a change of perspective, old loyalties begin to wane.
Juno is conjunct Pluto and therefore also sextile to this lunation. Juno conjunct Pluto is about the power of commitment. Consider what it would take to commit to your own vision, to wrestle back control, to stand up for what you truly believe in. Look to where you may need to change (Pluto) the contract (Juno) with yourself and/or others in order to be able to live your truth.
The sextile shows that the opportunity is there but you have to take the first step.
Deep down, you know what is right for you. Trust yourself.“
From PAT LILES from The Power Path.com:
“Full Moon in Scorpio is that one time in the year when the Moon reflects back to us in full glory our deepest, feminine water power.
Water is the element most impressionable, most reflective, most emotional, most empathetic, most patient…
With uniquely having three totems, the Scorpion, the Eagle, and the Phoenix, you have a choice as to how you will express your emotional power outwardly.
Will you sting self and others, will you fly above the daily pettiness and observe from your lofty perch utilizing perfect force and timing, or will you conquer personal obstacles by rising from your own ashes and being spectacularly, almost miraculously reborn? Scorpio is where our healer resides…our abilities to recuperate and heal ourselves are part of Scorpio’s rulership…
We’re just beginning to feel the forward movement of Mercury that began May 3. All that revisiting and reorganizing and regrouping are beginning to pay off.
The past has reared its head and been seen in a new light. Who are we now? If you’ve managed to free up some space in your life, cleared the deck in some energetic way, you will now feel a welcome surge of movement.
Mercury is still traveling with the powerful planet Uranus. When these two get together, you have the potential for powerful mental energy – genius, inspiration like a lightning bolt where insights, solutions and ideas fall out of the sky.
We have the opportunity to suddenly shift our old ways of thinking and wake up to where we are in this moment. What happened?! We woke up and a huge chunk of time has passed.
Time to sweep the carcasses of the past out, free the magnificent phoenix within, and begin to tell a new story that is our life reborn. The truth and the releasing of that old, deep well of feeling will set your wisdom free.
Saturn is helping this shift by making its second of three passes trining Uranus (expect another in September). It’s nine months of masterful support to bring change into your life.
Saturn is here to test you and to support you, as any good father figure is wont to do. Of course, at the same time, Saturn has also just finished its squaring of Chiron working to heal what festers within our souls, but also to bring us out to be a bridge between the old ways and the new.“
And from PAM YOUNGHANS from her NorthPoint Astrology Journal:
“This is the Wesak Full Moon, defined as the first Full Moon of the year while the Sun is in Taurus.
According to legend, at Wesak the Buddha and the Christ come together to link the East and West, uniting the world’s major religions in a shared holy day.
It is a sacred event for many, and a time when we all may choose to tap into the spiritual qualities of Love, Compassion, and Unity.
