May 7th, 2020 – Full Moon in Scorpio
A Full moon occurs when the sun and moon are in exact opposite positions of the zodiac. The full moon is a time when things can come to fruition or that light is shown on something previously hidden. It is often a time of culmination and fulfillment of what you started at the new moon. The Scorpio Full Moon is fully illuminated by the Taurus Sun.
The full moon in Scorpio creates the need to go deep within your desires. It is a time of having meaningful emotional exchanges with others. This is not the time to engage in shallow relationships. Scorpio represents the instinct of becoming deeply attached to the other. It represents the image of being purified by fire and rising from the ashes like a phoenix. Pluto is the ruler of Scorpio. Pluto is the planet that packs the strongest punch in the Zodiac; therefore, Scorpio is intense, deep energy. It is about the process of experiencing empowerment then disempowerment. Scorpio energy runs deep and represents the ultimate highs and lows of any situation. It also symbolizes sex, death, and transformation in something completely new.
This is a period of intense illumination. If you want to go deeper to experience the archetype of Scorpio then drop into the memory of the last emotional conflict that you experienced. You might have felt deep betrayal or violation of personal boundaries. Feel what it is like to let go of psychological and emotional entanglement. Scorpio is the energy of falling in love and drawing another close, so close that maybe you create a family, and feel deeply empowered from the experience. It could also be the sense of loss and betrayal when a relationship breaks up, you lose financial or physical resources, and you feel deeply disempowered. This is what the serious, intense, and intoxicatingly beautiful energy of Scorpio feels like.
