Full Moon in Scorpio May 3rd 2015
Unsettling, intense, dramatic ….. describes this full moon in Scorpio. Full moons are a time of culmination. It’s a time of endings. There may be things passing out of our lives whether they are self initiated or take us by surprise. At the same time some things are coming to fruition: ideas, new business ventures, project or relationships. If there has been pressure in your relationships the tension will be unbearable. Now is the time to deal with the underlying issues and take steps to become more aware.
The sun is in Taurus and the full moon is in Scorpio. I have stated in an earlier post…
“As an earth sign, Taurus focuses on our basic survival needs, physical, material and emotional. It loves it’s comfy comfort zone! And pleasure! With taurus we slow down and enjoy being in our bodies. As it is ruled by venus; sensuality and feeling pleasure through our senses is very important. Having beautiful smelling baths or receiving relaxing massages are good examples. So is the pleasure of the smell and taste of good food, wine or coffee. Of course the other sense is hearing and music has long been associated with this sign. Taurus loves to be productive and has great ability to persist and endure to achieve it’s goal. Money is a big issue for taurus with financial security being a necessity.”
While Scorpio “represents our desire nature, sexuality, birth, death transformation. Do you know your emotional truth? Do you live by it? This is the best time to cultivate our Emotional intelligence. Scorpio teaches us not to be afraid of the dark, to have the courage to face our fears head on. This entails diving deep into our psyches so we may familiarise ourselves with what really motivates us.”
Scorpio is the Truth seeker, it is a sign of extremes, all or nothing; black or white. It’s sensitive, complex, secretive also obsessive and possessive. One of it’s greatest gifts is the ability to deeply comprehend feelings, especially the darker more complex ones.
The combination of Taurus and Scorpio can help us to overcome obstacles on our path. Also they support our ability to be more tenacious, resourceful, determined and persistent.
Engaging in all this is Jupiter in Leo (making a 90 degree angle to the full moon) which brings drama and excess energy to the equation! On the positive side, it adds playfulness and a buoyant ‘joie de vivre’ spin in things. At it’s worst jupiter can be self-righteous, judgemental and lacking in any sense of proportion.
Processing scorpio energy is not meant to be just endured Where in our lives do we hold on tightly?. It is best to participate in the process, even when we feel that we are in over our heads. It’s a bit like those surfers riding huge waves, they will get dumped by them. But they get back on their surfboards and try again. The rewards are feelings of renewal, and empowerment.
We can embrace all the intensity and transform it to purge what is meant to be released in ourselves. We can engage the new insights that may come and allow the deep meaningful transformation to take place.
Don’t get caught in ego battles, or in trying to coerce anyone into anything they don’t want. Nor allow anyone to do it to you. Things we obsess about will be highlighted now, so will any over the top need to control type of behaviour. It’s time to relinquish dysfunctional and self defeating behaviours
Lets allow this scorpio full moon to help us find our own truths and cultivate
a strong appreciation for our wise depths.
