Full Moons are a time of release, or to reap what you have sown during the new moon. You may be asking yourself “what types of things shall I release, and how?” Well, Scorpio things, of course! They are as follows: sex, death, taxes or other people’s money. These are things to focus on the most in regards to healing and transformation during this time period.
I planted many a seed at the last new moon, and much has already come to fruition. The new Moon was in Aries, therefore I needed to take advantage of that Aries drive, ambition, assertiveness and courage. I have to say I am already rather pleased with the areas in which I needed that extra bit of courage. Now things take a shift.
Know that full moons are a time for illumination, as the subconscious and intuitive realms of the moon reflect the sun’s light (which is consciousness). This phenomena brings what is hidden into plain view. When the moon is full in Scorpio, full moon things can be especially dramatic, as the nature of Scorpio involves the hidden, darker, more taboo issues that have remained secretive for a long time. That which has lingered in the dark; personal things fed by secrecy, fear or shame now have the opportunity to be healed in the light from this lunation. Sounds scary, but it’s not. Scorpio is the sign of the shaman, therapist, counselor, witch and magician. It’s the sign of the healer and represents deep, transformative healing.
Scorpio themes, such as betrayal, manipulation and possessiveness are in the air for this reason. As is the yearning for a deep, soul-to-soul connection. Scorpio full moons always ask us to let go of the old in order to make way for a rebirth; but only after death, which in this case means a complete and total soul shift.
Because of Scorpio’s transformative nature and it’s “always getting to the bottom of things” attitude, there will be no room for shallow conversation with shallow people. Go deep and transform, or go home is the motto during a Scorpio Moon.
