The Full Moon in Scorpio will exact on 11th May 2017 at 07:43am (AEST).
Power, Passion and Intensity
Scorpio is a sign of depth, passion and emotional intensity, so the build up to this particular Full Moon could be pretty powerful.
And that’s exactly what Scorpio tends to be about – power.
Are you stepping into yours?
With the Moon sesquiquadrate Venus in the Full Moon chart, you may be feeling protective and possibly possessive of loved ones and there is the possibility of increased passion in an intimate relationship.
Increased Focus, Inspired Ideas and the Discipline to Effect Change
Uranus and Mercury (now moving direct) remain conjunct in Aries bringing the possibility for insights, revelations and inspired ideas and the Uranus/Saturn Trine has now tightened giving much needed discipline and the stability to manifest your creations.
The energy of this Full Moon is fabulous for focus, drive and investigation and with Mars in Trine to Jupiter there should be lots of energy around.
Time to Radiate, Create and Pursue Fulfilment
With the North Node now travelling through Leo (by the time of the Full Moon), the push to be yourself, to find avenues for fulfilment and to embrace your creativity could be strong now and with Mars square to Neptune there is likely to be an especially strong drive for the latter; especially if this aspect is highlighting your own natal chart.
What do you want to express? What do you feel passionate about?
The North Node in Leo is about confidence and embracing and radiating your inner self.
What gifts do you have to share with humanity?
The Black Moon in Sagittarius continues her quest for truth and asks are you being true to yourself and allowing yourself to be vulnerable?
With Chiron in square to Saturn and connecting with this Full Moon, you may have to examine feelings of inadequacy, however.
Meditation could strengthen your connection with your inner wisdom and help you to get more into your natural flow.
The Shadow Side
Full Moons tend to highlight our shadow side, so remaining open to what is occurring within and around you as the Full Moon builds can be revealing.
Scorpio energy deals with toxic emotions and the types of emotions that are discarded to the unconscious as ‘bad’, so you may reconnect with suppressed feelings; such as:
Always remember to look at why you are feeling this way, that these feelings are part of the human experience and that they are not necessarily ‘bad’.
Becoming aware of suppressed emotion, owning it and working with ways to let it pass through you, are the keys to shifting and transmuting it.
Whereas suppression mostly results in the use of lots of energy to keep them pushed down and hidden and what we hide tends to enlarge, grow hair and become really scary.
Talking about your feelings, writing them out in a journal, meditating on them and upping the exercise can all help at this time.
