We have a Full Moon in Scorpio today – one of the most powerful Full Moons of this year and as it’s falling in a water sign it carries spiritual discovery through delving into and understanding our emotions and thought processes.
The energy of Scorpio is very intense, secretive, power motivated and resilient. When we are in the midst of a Scorpio Full Moon we are being asked to go deeper and deeper into what makes us tick. Nothing is ever left to rest on the surface when it comes to Scorpio energy. When we feel the power of this we feel the need to investigate, explore and find our own answers based on what we find as well as on what we FEEL. The greatest life lesson and challenge for Scorpio souls is to be in control of and have power over their emotions, so as they can be at peace with themselves and with the world around them. It’s an interesting quandary that many Scorpio souls often find themselves in; they are so sensitive that their default system is often set to “emotional reactions only”. Yet when they stay in that mindset, they find themselves stuck in victim mentality where they constantly feel not good enough and stripped of their personal power. And on the other hand, they have such a desire for success in this lifetime that they crave empowerment and are capable of working long and hard to achieve their goals in every way. Scorpios interpret and process everything that happens to them in life through how it makes them “feel”. This is their way and when used constructively by observing the emotion and learning the lesson, they brilliantly step into their power and nothing can stop them from excelling at what they put their minds to. But, if they choose to stay stuck in how it is all making them feel and refuse to see what they are learning from this, they can become bitter, unhappy, disempowered and victims of all that they feel.
So, whether you have a Scorpio Sun or not, we all have Scorpio energy somewhere in our Birth Charts and this is where the Moon will be moving through your life right now. As the Scorpio Moon transits her way through your life at this time your emotions and feelings of being victimised or power-hungry will come to the surface to be healed. It is the job of the lunar vibrations at the Full Moon to heal what has been wounded over the last month, and also what has been wounded and buried from times past. Full Moons also bring things to fruition, so at this time it is good to look back at what you set your intentions on at the New Moon earlier this month, to see how far you have come along that journey and what may still need to be done.
This Scorpio Full Moon activates our emotions, our sensitivities and our perspectives on empowerment. And to add to this experience at this time, we have Pluto, the mighty transformer, turning Retrograde for 5 months from 28 April 2021.
Pluto is the planet of chaos and the Ruler of the Underworld, and he also rules Scorpio. Therefore, we have double the emotional purpose at the time of this Full Moon to expand upon that need to find our own power and to step out of anything that makes us feel like we are victims. It is Pluto’s purpose to transform us from slaves to masters and the only way to do this successfully and sustainably is to go deep so as to leave no stone unturned, and this means facing our shadow sides.
This Pluto Retrograde period in Capricorn is our opportunity to really look to clear from our inner worlds and sub-conscious minds any and all feelings of being slaves to what we feel, to what we have outgrown, and to the patterns and structures of the past. Pluto in Capricorn has been breaking down old traditions and habits within you and within the collective since 2008, and I think you should all be able to look at yourselves now and back to 2008, and be able to see how far you have come, how much you have grown and how differently you now think? While he is Direct motion, he is working on changing the structures, traditions and patriarchal energy of the world around us, but when he turns Retrograde it becomes all about your own inner housekeeping.
Therefore, we know have 5 months of inner work to do. 5 months to look at what we believe in, what we habitually do and feel responsible for, how we use or misuse our personal power, and how to transform anything that makes us feel like victims into empowerment. We are all different, we all have our own shadow side, and this is where our Plutonian lessons usually reside. As we as a planet as well as individuals awaken to a new world, we need to be aware of what is going to be of use to us, what will be sustainable and workable for us in this new world, as well as what will not serve us positively. Humanity is being compelled to make the shift out of 3D energy and into 5D energy NOW. And to make this shift yourself you have to let go of your fear, of your negativity and of the concept that all decisions and actions must come from the brain and not from the heart. Pluto also works to target all that is toxic within us when he moves into Retrograde motion, so this may also be a very good time to do a personal detox on your physical body at the same time as you are detoxing your emotional and mental bodies. All that doesn’t sit comfortably and supportively with you is now up for review, and you have the assistance and support of the Universe to shift all of this at this time.
We are all here to become the Masters of our own lives and our destinies and so it is our responsibility to discover and deal with our shadow side. Your shadow side is just the build-up of your fears and how they have become personified to you. These are the negative thoughts and fears you have chosen to attach yourself to, that created a shadow within you that you then came to believe was a flaw in yourself and something that needed to be hidden and not exposed in this lifetime. What I have found time and time again in my work with clients and students is that right underneath that greatest fear, that big bad part of you that you could not accept or make friends with, is often your greatest talent – your magic!
At this Full Moon put your fears out to the Universe for healing. Write a letter to the Universe asking that you be set free of all the fear that binds you, allow yourself to unload all that hurts you or limits you, and let it all go back to Mother Nature for purification and cleansing. And then allow yourself to see and feel how much freer you are, how much lighter life can be, and how much power you have at your fingertips when you accept your shadow side and refuse to buy into any fear. Full Moon blessings to you all xox
