OMG this Full Moon in Scorpio is going to be a very powerful one!
This month of April is really full of shift of energy and is very challenging, so lets back tract a bit to look at this powerful month.
On the 17th of April Chiron moved in Aries.
One of the big theme of Chiron in Aries is taking action, (Aries being assertive), on your vulnerability, on your woundedness.
At a deeper level Aries is the principle of “I Am”, so if You have Chiron in Aries in your personal chart, in general You may have the sense of “Do I have the right to exist?”… “Do I have the right to live?”… However, the good news is that wherever Chiron is in your chart, it is about to turn a weakness into a strength. So in Aries it is about turning the weakness into becoming a leader ultimately.
Another theme of Chiron in Aries is about taking independent actions around issues of health, becoming more self-sufficient in your health, understanding self healing in a bigger way. And that self healing is likely to be frequency and vibration based, because we have an ongoing connection between Uranus and Neptune at the moment, continuing all the way to Spring 2019.
More and more is being understood about the importance of frequency in our state of health… music, sound healing, energy healing… Chiron is connected with alternative method of healing.
Another theme of Chiron in Aries is that ecologically and environmentally we may see more fires at this time, because we also have Uranus moving in Taurus which is about Earth changes. Uranus represents primal fire and Chiron vulnerability, so we may see some destructive fires around the world.
So check your personal chart to see if you have any planets in the first 2 degrees of the Cardinal signs ( Aries-Libra-Cancer-Capricorn), You may feel this Chiron transit this year and it may be very powerful for You.
On the 18th of April Saturn is moving retrograde from the 9 degrees of Capricorn all the way back to 2 degrees of Capricorn, and will resume direct motion by the 6th of September.
So if You have planets a bit further on in Cardinal signs, up to 9 degrees, they will be aspected this year by the transit of Saturn. And Saturn tend to bring up a sort of frustration or a blocked circumstance, in order to teach You patience, and to simplify and restructure that area of your life.
So see where those early degrees of Capricorn are falling in your personal chart, because that could be an area where You have work, simplification and restructuring.
And really from the 18th of April through the end of the month, the energy is tremendously strong because the Sun conjunct Uranus, and that is the planet of rebellion, revolution and protest.
Then four days later on the 22nd of April, Pluto also turns stationary retrograde.
Now Pluto is barely moving through the second half of April until the second half of May. So when a planet becomes stationary, it is like she is pausing for a day as she turns around before changing direction, and in a stationary position the symbolism of that planet is emphasised.
So Pluto is about power, power issues, so You may see power play in your life. So be aware of how You use your own power, because on a one to one basis You can only experience somebody power over You if You voluntarily give it away, if You play the victim. I You don’t give up your power away, no one can have power over You. And internalise your power, because power comes from a very strong sense of centre.
Another important event this month is that planet Mars is going to conjunct Pluto on the 26th of April, at 21 degrees of Capricorn.
So this is tremendous focus energy, will power…it is very dynamic. This is really wonderful for focusing on a project, it is like a laser beam focus, so see where 21 degrees of Capricorn is in your personal chart.
So really for the last week of April, as Mars is going to conjunct Pluto on the 26th, Mars is also going to activate the Uranus/Pluto Square, so this is tremendously Yang energy, dynamic, forceful and power play.
And also the last 3 days of April, Uranus is going to be at 29 degrees of Aries. Any 29 degrees of a sign is what we call in astrology a “critical degree”, and it usually brings out the shadow side of that sign.
So what could be the shadow side of Aries? … Aggression, impulsivity, strong assertion, irrational acting before You really think thing through, impatience, taking shortcuts… so be very aware of that during the last week of April.
What is very useful with astrology and having some knowledge about your personal chart, is the ability to know what is coming, and to use these planetary energies in the most positive ways. So because this is such a strong Yang energy in April, especially towards the end of the month, use it for action, use it for doing, use it for focus to achieve some projects. Despite the fact that Saturn and Pluto are going to be moving retrograde, it is a turning in on your power and making sure that You are doing things very thoroughly.
And here we are with the Full Moon in Scorpio!
On the 30th of April, we have the Full Moon at 9 degrees 38’ of Scorpio.
This is a very very strong Full Moon.
So the Sun is in Taurus, the Moon is in Scorpio its opposite sign. And when I think of Taurus and Scorpio, I think of Taurus as the one who accumulates, the things, the money, the food, the luxuries…and then at the same time we have got this opposite energy of Scorpio.
Now Full Moon is always when emotions tend to come to the surface, particularly for release. Scorpio is the most intense of the water signs. So this is a particularly good time, to not only release emotions that no longer serve You, but they may have been repressed. Scorpio is to do with stuffing things down and repress them for a long period of time, also to do with the purging and the detoxifying.
So at the time of this Full Moon there is the wonderful opportunity to really think about the things in your life that are burdens, that are too heavy, that You are holding on to in that Taurus fashion… and this Full Moon in Scorpio may bring them to light for You. So You may just realise that this is time to release something that have been like a heavy weight around your neck.
And this could be a fantastic time for releasing fears, anxiety, anything around survival issues, because Scorpio and its ruler Pluto are quite related to survival issues.
And also remember that a Full Moon is about a move toward culmination, closure, bringing thing to fruition. Sometimes a Full Moon can shine a light on something … particularly a secret because this one is in Scorpio…there may be something You was unaware of before that can modify your direction going forwards.
So on the big picture, this is a very intense Full Moon indeed, because it is in the most intense water sign of Scorpio, because we have Chiron at 0 degree of Aries, we have Mars conjunct Pluto, we have Uranus on the critical 29 degrees of Aries, and we also have Jupiter conjunct the Moon which tend to blow up your feelings and exaggerate them.
And we have Pluto and Mars conjunct in Capricorn, and also Saturn in Capricorn, so You may be dealing with issues regarding teeth, bones, hair, skin… all these areas to do with the structure and boundaries… and getting to the bottom of things. During this Scorpio Full Moon, You might find somebody or something that could solve a situation for You that has been bothering You for a long time.
Also at this Full moon we have got Jupiter in Scorpio trine Neptune in Pisces, so this gives You an opportunity to begin to feel your compassion for yourself and for others, and to connect.
And sometimes they may be some sad news to be dealt with, we all have that from time to time. If You have family or friends dealing with sadness, just really listen to what they are going through emotionally… and ask yourself “how do I deal with sad situations? Am I avoiding them? or Am I facing them?. With the Uranus energy involved at this Full Moon, this is an opportunity to put yourself in somebody else shoes and to feel what they may be going through.
Scorpio people they want to get to the blood and gut of things. They love anything to do with investigating. So with this Scorpio Full Moon it is an opportunity to really get to the nitty gritty of those emotional things that might have been blocking You, and just release and let go even if it does not look pretty for a while. Because sometime that scorpionic energy, (Pluto/Mars with the Square to Uranus), could just be an explosion.
Maybe there have been abuse, manipulation, control … humm take a deep breath… and TIME TO RELEASE AND LET IT GO AND LET IT OUT.
So with all these strong Yang dynamic energies going on, this is a fantastic time to step back, breathe and observe. One of the great benefit of astrology is to help You to become a witness, to become an observer of what is, and to step back to your real place of power which is your centre. The more things are strong in the outside, the more You need to go inwards.
Very importantly we have a Yin energy, with Neptune trine Jupiter. This is beautiful mystical, this is etherial energy, this is connecting to source, this is reminding You that your power and your centre is within You. So You need to withdraw from the activities of the outer world and very consciously and deliberately turn inwards, with your breath, with your meditation, with your observation, with a visit to the Vipassana, or a purifying Ka Huna Massage.
So at this Full Moon there is also a wonderful opportunity here with all these connections between planets, to find out that You have got more stamina and more strength inside of You. So where can You find stamina and strength inside of You that You did not know You had? You might be quite amazed. It is a time to really go through situations, that is what this Scorpio Moon is asking You to do…to walk through them and face them, and not sort of skirt around. Remember there is always brightness when You release the darkness and the brightness can shine through more fully.
So with this Scorpio Full Moon, I hope that You are flowing your feelings of compassion, of caring, of Love, of strength and stamina, of joy… and the darkness is turning into light.
People with Sun and Moon and Ascendant in Scorpio can be impacted strongly with this Full Moon.
From the New Moon in Aries on the 16th of April, we started the brand new year in resonance with Mother Earth. So think of yourself as a flower growing. At the New Moon You planted a seed with your intentions. And now this Full Moon in Scorpio is helping You to step into new power. At the beginning of April You looked at yourself in the mirror and You saw yourself in a certain way and by the end of the month, You may look again and say “Wow I look different!”…yes that kind of thing.
So a lot is going on in April, especially in the second half of the month, a lot of strong feelings, a lot of intensity, but remember to be the witness and the observer, because this is the best thing You can do for yourself therefore the best thing You can do for the world.
So enjoy this Full Moon in Scorpio, enjoy the strong energies, but step back from assertiveness whenever You feel impulsive and BE MINDFUL BEFORE YOU ACT.
