On the 22nd and 23rd of April depending on where in the world you are, there will be a Full Moon in the constellation of Scorpio. Scorpio is a fixed water sign ruled by Pluto and is the most intense and misunderstood sign of the Zodiac.
The Full Moon is a “yang” energy, meaning it is outward, active and expressive. The time of the Full Moon is when you choose to move ahead with your intention now or accept that this is not the best time so instead you release your intention to correct the course.
Scorpio gets you to look at your inner world, going deep down into the depths of darkness and crisis, calling you to the underworld, to face your biggest fears and allow transformation to take place where you emerge stronger than you were before. It is truly a miracle.
Don’t be afraid of the dark as this is where your greatest healing takes place. Pluto is about transforming yourself. If you need to forgive someone or yourself now is the time to look at yourself and others. Once forgiveness has taken place your heart opens allowing you to see yourself as you really are, as a beautiful, kind and loving human being.
In the midst of this transformation expect extreme emotions and behaviours. Get ready to face your fears and welcome the changes that will take place. The intensity of this Full Moon in Scorpio is filled with passion and intensity and may cause explosions of emotions within your relationships so be aware, so you can respond in a much better way other than to just react to them.
If something occurs where your emotions are overwhelming, just allow yourself to feel them and if anything is not serving you anymore let it go (easier said than done).
This incredible Scorpio energy gives you the opportunity to look closely and examine a situation or a haunting memory that really needs to change. You could be in a relationship or job that you feel you need to leave because it is just not working for you anymore. With hurt from haunting memories this is an ideal time to go back into that memory and change it. What would you do in that situation if faced with it now? Could you take your power back? How differently would you handle it?
If it is a painful memory that keeps revisiting you where someone has hurt you, were they really out to deliberately hurt you or are you looking at it based on an old perception?
You can change that hurtful memory from your past, but first you need to change the way you look at it. Most of you who read this blog know I often mention Byron Katie. She has a simple process that shows you how to spend time with those stressful thoughts and the process you can follow so they’ll never return again. You’ll open your incredible mind and in turn open your heart. Click here to watch Katie explain “The Work”
This transformation that takes place is so powerful it will change your past. This is best said from a quote by Wayne Dyer “Change The Way You Look at Things, and the Things You Look at Change” Click on the link above to watch how Wayne Dyer describes how this will change your life!
Scorpio demands courage and fearlessness and you must be brutally honest with yourself. This Full Moon in Scorpio commands you to see things as they really are, not wishing or wanting them to be different. That is just suffering.
This incredible moon will emphasize your creativity. This is perfect for any of you who are writers, artists, musicians, so if you have a creative spark, dive in and see what happens.
Here are some words that describe Scorpio perfectly: transformation, secretive, intense, sex, surrender, relax, and finally intimacy. Others are a mirror to us and it is because of other people intimacy becomes “into-me-i-see”.
Here are some suggestions for good things to do during the Full Moon in Scorpio
- Tell a secret to someone you can trust and with whom you feel safe.
- Do you want to pursue your passion? Go for it!
- Be brave, face your fears, because just on the other side is your power (Byron Katie’s Process is the tool you’ll need).
- What can you recycle? Be creative!
- Get rid of any of those old fears and limiting beliefs that are holding you back.
- Be in control of your finances.
- Let go of relationships, let go of “things”…Meditate
Maybe you’ll get some ideas of yourself!
Sounds easy doesn’t it? However, facing our fears can be painful, bringing up feelings of hurt and heartbreak. They come to the surface because you have not yet addressed them fully. Don’t push them away as they will only return with more intensity. Once things or someone has served their purpose, it’s time to let go – this can be incredibly liberating. For new things to commence old ways have to be released.
To balance out the intensity and passion of Scorpio we need to look at its polarity in gentle, patient and kind Taurus. Slow down, take time with yourself.
For those of you on days 12 to 10 of your cycle, sex will be incredibly important in the days leading to ovulation. You will be feeling more amorous, perhaps taking on the role of sexy Marilyn Monroe. Physiologically speaking our bodies tell us we are more fertile than usual so if you’re attracted to someone sexually, you may just get what you want during this cycle.
If you are on day 19 your creative juices may be flowing, and with progesterone on the rise you may be surprised at your ability to solve problems with out of the box ideas.
Days 23 through to 28 can be challenging due to your hormones dropping off and the beginning of PMS. Be aware of your emotions as this energy this can be incredibly intense. This will be your opportunity to delve into those emotions and look at what thoughts are triggering them. Take a deep breath and channel that energy into what you desire.
It is recommended you take time to do meditation, look at your nutrition and what you are putting into your body and how it’s making you feel.
