This Lunar Month, the Full Moon will exact in the sign of Scorpio (on April 30th 2018 at 10:57:20am here in Brisbane (AEST, GMT +10) – Click here for a time conversion to your part of the World.
A Rebellious Air Continues
As the Full Moon exacts, Uranus will be at the anuretic (final) degree of Aries continuing the rebellious theme of April and bringing with it a powerful urgency to finally face those things that hold you back from being your most inspired and dynamic self.
With Mars squaring Uranus the drive for freedom and independence will be strong and with Mars also conjunct Pluto – powerful.
This Moon brings a big opportunity for transformation and empowerment.
What are you being urged to do on a personal level and how are you going about it?
What is being Illuminated – Let it Go, Let it Go…
Remember that the build up to a Full Moon tends to illuminate what most requires your attention and this illumination will likely continue until you finally make the necessary changes to acknowledge, feel and heal it.
When that Full Moon falls in Scorpio this can signal intense emotional experiences and an attachment to drama.
The Taurus (Sun) / Scorpio (Moon) polarity can highlight themes around ‘letting go’ vs ‘security’.
Too much holding on can lead to stagnation and both of these signs highlight this tendency.
Scorpio has a tendency towards obsession, ’til death do us part complexes and enmeshment and Taurus can be possessive, digging in those heels and remaining inflexible in the face of change.
As spiritual beings we are here to undergo regular bouts of transformation and growth and letting go can have the most profound results in bringing us a greater sense of belonging and intimate connection.
Whether that be bravely confronting and unpacking emotional baggage (greater intimacy potential with others), fasting to purge out toxicity (a greater understanding of and connection to your amazing body!!) or embracing change (and realising that the thing you were fearful of actually turned out amazing!!).
The saying “If you love someone, let them go” also applies here. Holding on too tightly can smother, repress and suffocate and it does nothing to help you to feel loved.
When you give someone the freedom to be themselves and room to move and they still love and want to be with you – that’s love and if they move on then perhaps it was never going to work out anyway.
Working on self love, however, will ensure that you’ll attract the healthful, intimate relationships that you need.
What Needs to be Purged/Detoxified?
Scorpio is a deeply psychic sign and with Jupiter also joining the Moon here it could well be time to confront some fears and take a deep dive into the psychological complexes that you’ve been dragging around.
Detoxifying and purging physically, emotionally and mentally not only brings renewed strength and vitality as old emotions are cleared away, but also an enormous amount of growth and empowerment.
On the other hand, power struggles, blaming others for your lot and perceiving yourself as a victim dis-empower you and keep you locked in struggle.
Is it time to take responsibility for toxic emotions?
How comfortable are you with challenging yourself and confronting your fears?
Uranus’ Final Push in the Sign of Aries
Uranus in Aries wants to shake things up and wants fast, dynamic change and progression – right now!!
Cue imaginary hand pushing your back and urging you ever forward.
With Uranus on the powerful last degree of Aries it may feel like you’re being pushed to your limit this month and especially so as we get closer to the Full Moon.
What is this sense of urgency bringing up for you on an emotional level?
With Jupiter and Pluto both contacting Mars there is plenty of energy around to get things done and Saturn’s Easy Opposition with the Full Moon is imbuing you with the self-discipline and responsibility to take charge.
If your workload is too demanding and unrealistic, however, you’re likely to snap; possibly unleashing a barrage of anger in the direction of whoever has triggered you.
Try to respond (rather than react) before it gets to this point.
How can you lessen that workload?
Do you need more time? More help?
Whatever it is… can you try asking for it in a calm and measured way?
Can you say “No” without feeling guilty?
Uranus Shifts into Taurus – Expect a Gear Change
As Uranus moves into Taurus (May 16th) expect these impatient urgings to slow down somewhat and (hopefully) the pace of your life will now begin to reflect this.
Unpredictable and at times volatile, Uranus is a ‘change master’, but placed in Taurus the speed of that change is likely to be much slower; enabling you to take things more in your stride.
When in Taurus, he wants to awaken us to the needs of the body, to the needs of Mother Earth, to our material attachments and what brings us a sense of comfort and security.
So, expect some personal and global changes around these themes as we move towards our next New Moon.
Scorpio Gifts – Passion and Intimacy
Along with the benefits of a good purge, as listed above, Scorpio energy can connect us with our strongest passions.
What do you get out of bed for?
What excites you and sparks you?
What do you feel deeply about?
Scorpio energy is also the domain of intimacy and magnetic attraction.
If you’re lucky enough to share a strong connection with your partner take the time to enjoy one another this month.
Crank up the Marvin Gaye and get it on – what better way to release tension!!
Scorpio energy can also bring great focus and determination, so consider digging deep in the build up to this Full Moon and channelling all that intensity into something concrete.
