Transformation, Intensity, Regeneration

On April 30th there’ll be a Full Moon in Scorpio, but before look what the Scorpio Full Moon means let’s look a little closer at the Moon and what it represents in astrology.

The Moon in Astrology

The Moon represents our inner world: our emotions, mood, feelings of inner security, sensitivity, the unconscious and intuition.  In astrology the Moon is one of the most important planets as she is also mother, home, family, feelings and habits and how we instinctually react to life.

In your natal chart (the time of your birth) the Moons location tells you your emotional tendencies while the Moon’s current location as its moving across sky impacts on our feelings and behaviour in the present.   She speaks to us through our feelings.

Full Moon in Scorpio

No matter where our Sun or Moon is in our Natal Chart (Birth Chart), we are all effected by the Full Moon in Scorpio.

The Full Moon in Scorpio is the most intense of all the Full Moons, it helps you to change what you need to in your life or what you need to let go of.  There can be extreme emotions and upsets at this time, giving your relationships and finances a shake-up.  This is good news as the Scorpio Full Moon will create the opportunity to eradicate those unhealthy habits or people whose time has come.

This Full Moon in Scorpio is very emotional and may cause explosive interactions in your relationships especially if you are in a rut.  Try to become aware that this can continue over several days so instead of reacting you’ll be able to respond instead.  If emotions arise and you can catch yourself, it’s best to feel the emotions and if you can, allow them to subside.  Bottling them in will cause great stress in your body.

This is the time to let go of anything that is not serving you anymore, including people, it is a time of regeneration and rebirth.   Take this time to look at an unhealthy relationship, situation or job.  The Scorpio Full Moon will help you examine it in detail, be brutally honest with yourself and you can decide whether it’s time to walk away, resign (maybe even start your own business) or to look at it from a new perspective to have the passion to rebirth it in a different way.

At this time the Scorpio Full Moon faces the Sun in Taurus, it’s opposite sign. Both these signs correlate with our deep emotional intricacies.  The Full Moon in Scorpio can send us down to depths of despair getting caught up in an emotional frenzy while gentle, patient Taurus will ground us putting the brakes on to slow us down showing us our true value in making life simple again.

Suggestions for You to Do During the Scorpio Full Moon

  • Do some meditation to help with inner peace

  • See what you recycle or upcycle

  • If you are feeling amorous and you are eager for sex, now is the time

  • Are you obsessive about anything, creating feelings of intensity

  • Share your secrets with a trusted friend or someone you feel safe with to let it out

  • Look at what’s holding you back from doing what you want

How the Full Moon in Scorpio Coincides with Your Cycle

Day 12:  Sex! It’s an incredibly important drive of behaviour and who we are.  We turn into sexy Marilyn Munroe with pitched voices that are more attractive to both men and women.  Physiologically, our bodies also tell us we are extremely fertile, with the stretchy cervical fluid (yep that fluid is not an infection!)  You are feeling sexy and extremely turned on.

Days 18 – 28:  You may only be on Day 18 but it’s worth noting to prepare for PMS in the following days.  Symptoms generally make themselves known around 5-10 days before your period and dissipate with its start or soon after, some say almost instantaneously.

This can be a time when everything blows up our skin and our emotions.  PMS can be an extremely intense time.  Combined with the fiery energy of Scorpio Full Moon you may need to watch your temper and be aware of your reactions. When you feel the stress of your emotions building, take steps to hold yourself in a space to allow your emotions to subside. Go for a walk, get outside, deep breath, hurtful and insensitive words cannot be undone.

As always, 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.

You can find recipes, meditation to support you through your cycle and Astrology will help find the meaning behind the New Moon in Aries to harness its energies.
