The Full Moon resides in transformative Scorpio, where we feel everything more intensely: the passion, love, jealousy, betrayal, and the desire.
It’s easy to allow our emotions to get the best of us when the Moon is in Scorpio, and to act on defense even when things may not exactly be as bad as we perceive them to be. We can feed our fears, or we can feed our desires. The choice is ours, and whatever we choose to focus this energy on will be illuminated with intensity. Scorpio is the sign of power and transformation; it governs the planet Pluto which ancients dub as the God of Death and Rebirth. In order to be reborn, we must first put to death the old qualities of ourselves, relationships, or things within our environment which keep those things on life support.
The Scorpio Full Moon is opposed by the Sun, Mercury, Uranus, and Venus who are currently residing in stubborn yet dedicated Taurus, as well as Saturn who is currently home in opinionated and future-oriented Aquarius. The energy is thick within the realm of fixed signs as it creates a T-square, producing a chaotic concoction of not wanting to bend when change is desperately needed, but yet yearning for that change because of a focus on the bigger picture. This oppositional force is definitely one to be reckoned with and can flair up tempers, add volume to opinions, and expose others for who they truly are down to the core – even yourself. There is no more hiding the authentic origins of what ills us, what holds us back, and also what encourages us to grow, move forward, and to find the light within the darkness. The truth is exposed, no matter how ugly or bright it may be.
The theme of this Full Moon is not only transformation, but also transmutation. There is no escaping it, not matter how reluctant the opposition may be when change is on the horizon.
Grounding is vital rather than allowing our emotions, suspicions, or defensive nature to get the best of us. We can thank the difficult yet much-needed stellium of Taurus energy for the influence of remaining within our bodies and having our feet deeply rooted on the ground. This allows for us to go within, rather than soaring the heights, or the depths, of the astral realms.
When we go within, ground, and find out the truth of the matter rather than feeding into the illusions our fears or allowing those rose-colored glasses mask the truth, is when we find our power to transmute the chaos and transform our fears into understanding and our desires into goals.
This is also a time of finding out who your true friends are, who you truly are, as not everyone is on your side and sometimes it is you standing in your own way. While Scorpio can be incredibly manipulative and live separate lives, the opposing forces within this fixed energy will reveal the truth behind the smoke and mirrors.
The best way to use the energy from the Scorpio Moon is to protect yourself, as Scorpio is one of the most fiercely protective signs. Secretive and stealth-like, you can use this energy to your advantage as you protect yourself within that smoke and use the mirror to determine who or what is triggering the toxicity within your life or yourself. This is where we clear those skeletons our of our closets and identify exactly what is going bump in the night. Just like an exorcism, the only way you can rid the demon is by calling it out by its name, and that is the gift this Scorpio Full Moon is offering us.
This is the perfect time to focus on shadow work, protective work, as well as to expand our creative and spiritual gifts. The Scorpio Full Moon reveals the path to where our true power lies and encourage us to stand in it – but first, we must clear the path from the obstacles that try to derail us.
Not only is the Scorpio Moon illuminating the path to empowerment, but it is also showing us how we can hold a more intimate relationship with ourselves and those we love. All of this work is for the sake of deeper connections to both the material and metaphysical Worlds.

OTHER ITEMS TO CONSIDER
Dedicated for your Sun and/or Moon sign
The Full Moon empowers you, revealing all the tools, resources and support that surrounds you. You can accomplish great things with the right use of will and intention, but you must believe in yourself and your cause. Where do you stand, Aries? What are you fighting for? Align with your purpose and you will surmount any obstacle that stands in your way, overcome any adversity that holds you back, and find the power that has been within you all along.
The source of restriction and unhappiness lies in what you have been clinging to. There is something toxic that you have been chasing and yet you don’t realize it. You seek stability, security, and are reluctant to change to the point of remaining within a miserable “comfort zone” that does not serve you. It’s time to put your desires in check and reconsider your value-system.
You may be overcome with anxiety as your mind is scattered with so many fears and focused on outcomes that have not come to pass. Why are you feeding your fears with so much energy? You need to ground and find your center, allow these thoughts to pass and understand the source that causes them. Something is triggering you that is rooted within your subconscious and your thoughts are so loud that you cannot see it. Don’t create a self-fulfilling prophecy by dreading an imagined future and control your thoughts.
Its time to try new things and venture outside of that comfort zone. There is something to learn, pathways to explore, and a new concept to adopt. Branch out and reach for more than what you have known. You may connect with someone who opens your mind and reveals a message that forever changes your perspective. There is power in movement.
Your inner child desperately wants to come out and play, so what is stopping you from allowing it? While you feel you need to protect the innocence within yourself by keeping it guarded, you aren’t doing yourself any favors by limiting the joyful and meaningful experiences available to you. By restricting yourself you are only allowing your inner child to become rebellious and unhappy which will create a backlash or cries for freedom that are sought after in unhealthy ways. Focus on fun activities that allow for you to let loose, unleash your creative side, and do something that caters to your inner child.
Whatever is triggering you stems from the past and no matter how much you try to avoid it, it will continue to cycle back through until you resolve it. It may be easy to match the energy of these triggers by acting aggressively or stubborn, but that won’t do you any good and will add fuel to the fire. There is a lesson to learn behind all of this, so be receptive and invoke the changes it inspires.
You can accomplish a lot more when you work as a team with those who share your vision. Your true friends will support you and cater to the needs of your purpose, while those who are truly not your friends will balk behind your back and make you feel you need to act small in order to find their acceptance. Distance yourself from those who do not applaud your accomplishments and make you feel your work is for nothing. You are going places and have much to accomplish, and so you need a matching frequency of a tribe of supporters.
Lead by example and show others the right way in doing things. You are a source of inspiration and support to others, and you are being watched, so be sure you are putting your best foot forward. Likewise, you will be blessed with someone who comes in to help you with a noble cause, however, they will only offer support if they see you working hard at what fuels your passions. Self-discipline is necessary right now as you need to focus on your higher goals, however, you also need to ground and plant your feet firmly onto the earth so to fully stand in your power so to attract the abundance of your desires. All of this Taurus energy may oppose you, but it can be transmuted into a gift of the stability and structure you need.
You’ve been working hard this past while and deserve a break. Consider traveling outside your zip code, relaxing near a large body of water, or expanding your mind with some metaphysical or scientific knowledge. You body needs a break, but your mind begs for some exercise because of the mundane cycle you’ve been so stuck in. Break out of this rut and expand your mind with some brain-food. You will find this to be the rejuvenation both your body and mind need so to invoke positive changes in your life that cater to a healthier balance of work and play.
Your ancestors are beyond proud of the work you’ve been doing, especially during the period Saturn was in your sign. Its time to be receptive and to receive the abundance of gifts you have earned. You will find you are far more supported than you realized, not only within this physical realm, but the spiritual as well. You may have considered planting your roots as well, to align with a committed cause that caters to a need for both stability and material well-being. This is your sign that those ideas or passions are divinely channeled and need to be acted upon.
The adversity that you face is not as bad or a complete blockage as you might fear it is. You have far more power in this situation than you realize but it is going to take thinking outside of the box in order to take hold of it. Your creative nature is empowered, as is your ability to transmute those negatives into a positive. Stand tall and remember you can overcome anything you put your mind to.
They say believing is seeing, but during the Full Moon you are going to find that miracles and magick are at the tip of your fingers and so its time to will your intentions towards higher causes. Someone may come to you saying the right thing at the right time, or you may find yourself overcome with synchronistic messages that empower your path. Whatever the case, you are right where you need to be, and your dreams are leading you towards the right direction. Be receptive to the messages you receive and align with the flow, for you are expanding and growing in all of the right ways.
