FULL MOON in Scorpio, April 21/22 2016-Dancing in the dark leads to a shift
Well this is certainly going to be a time of going deep within and who knows what you will find when you enter the cavern of self. The last month has been reeling with erratic energy, dramatic changes. Shifting within and without and around about has been distracting some of you, disrupting others and then those who know how to stay calm within the murky waters that keep washing upon them have got the puzzle at least under control to some extent. Looking around me I see so many immersed in the Aries syndrome of self. Hey, do you see me here? No answer because no one really wants to interact. Me and more me! That’s quite all right. Mars loves to create a bit of energetic swashbuckling among the mainstream. Have you noticed? Or have you gotten swept up by the winds of April?
It is time for the Full Moon in Scorpio to arrive. What does it wish to share with you? This is yet another moon ruled by dear old Mars. I know Pluto rules Scorpio who went retrograde on April 18 does have an effect and so does Mr. Mars in Sagittarius and he went retrograde on April 17. It is the start of his journey backwards digging up the dirt that you tried to hide and revamping your thinking so that you can get it right this time around. It is another Super Moon.
Before I delve a bit into the wondrousness of this intensely sexy Full Moon in Scorpio let’s look at the details. It occurs in 2 degrees 30’ of Scorpio at 1:23 am EDT on April 22, 2016; 10:23pm PDT;(April 21) and 5:23am GMT (April 22). What is the change of direction going to be about? The Full Moon is always about balancing the Yin and Yang. This Scorpio Moon and the Sun in Taurus at 2degrees 30’ is asking you to balance the practical with your passionate approach. As I said previously this Full Moon is about seeing how well you are moving forward with the intentions that you set at the New Moon in Aries. If it is not working than you may have to revamp and change direction. Taurus Sun says to you that the senses—all five of them (sight, hearing, smell, taste and touch) are important. At times you may forget to breathe deeply and enjoy the feelings that come from the senses. To Taurus it is also about your worth, in fact, divine worth. It is material yet it is ruled by spirit. Who did you hug today? Did you taste something delicious or hear a sound so soothing? That is a deep part of the Taurus influence. How did you think about that investment in making it better for your worth?
On the other hand Scorpio Full Moon is about the depths of passion or aversions? Since it is a water sign It likes to ponder the depths of feelings and fears. And it does get carried away at times with investigating those motivations looking for the deepest hunger and darkest fear. Scorpio does eventually come to the realization that no matter what is happening it does come to a place of love and light and does survive. This FULL MOON in Scorpio is about releasing the tensions around your sexuality and any dominance/power issues. How many of you can look and see the patterns that are surfacing in your lives? Since there are no important aspects to the Full Moon it all falls on the ruler which is Mars and unfortunately as I stated it is retrograde. What’s going to come to a head at this Super moon? There is one other fixed star which is conjunct the Full Moon and that is Antares. It is found in Scorpio and it is just some more intensity added to the whole scene. Giant red star Antares is about extremist views.
This Scorpio Full Moon is 6 months after the New Moon in Scorpio of November 2015. It is like a look at how you have been doing all these months and where it has taken you with the goal/intentions. It is also a financial makeover so if you have been on track it will definitely pay off down the road.
Scorpio Full Moon is a dark one. Oh yes. He is truly the Scorpion with the sting. Yet I feel that it is a time that the darkness that has enveloped many will now turn to light even when it comes to you differently at first. Scorpio loves to know the truth and it does reveal itself for better or worse with this Full Moon. What you see may not be the truth.
Mars is saying to reevaluate your sexual relationships. Some may be totally fearful of anything that is sexual. Others may have to deal with a competitor in business. From April 18- May 28 Mars will be in retrograde motion in Sagittarius. Mars here will bring high drama. This is a very impulsive position. You could indeed hit the bulls eye, but at what cost? Watch for when the Moon activates Antares on April 25 and May 22. Danger lurks. May 28-June 30 Mars will be in Decan 3 of Scorpio retrograding. Mars here feels connected and protective of its territory. Your Instincts are sharp, with the great gift stalking invisibly. Mars here can sense danger well in advance, but is often labeled paranoid because if it. The red planet turns retrograde about every 2 years. The planets energy is turning itself upside down in a sense, so we get the opportunity to view things from another angle. It will start off at 8º Sagittarius, a fire sign no less, and then travel back to 23º Scorpio, a sign it rules. It is much more intense in Scorpio.
Do pay attention dear ones. Scorpio wants what he wants and Taurus wants what she wants. Uh oh! Now what do you do? Power play is the name of the game. Taurus Sun rules your resources. It describes what you value ranging from physical possessions and money, to personal self-esteem and talents. Taurus rules your personal earnings, bankers, budgets, money you make, value system, monetary gains and losses, security. Scorpio rules the support you receive from other people. It rules wealth of your spouse or partner, spirituality, insurance, legacies, other people’s money, stocks, taxes, inheritances and transformation.
How does Venus, the ruler of Taurus fit in here? Venus loves to listen, nurture, and beautify. Venus stimulates your social and love life but can be quite variable in effect. It is conjunct Uranus in Aries at this time of the Full Moon but is off by itself. The Venus Uranus conjunction can bring exciting romances with enough personal freedom to enjoy a glamorous social life. Though watch for instability with your finances if you have negative aspects.
Pluto, the higher octave ruler of Scorpio, attracts crisis and volatility. Pluto lives in the subconscious, particularly in the caverns we avoid. This makes the scorpion quite unpredictable. Also Pluto is going retrograde (April 18th – September 26th), setting out a period of detoxing issues around sexuality, power and the subconscious.
The Full Moon in Scorpio affects most intensely those with personal planets in 27 degrees of Libra – 4 degrees of Scorpio; 27 degrees of Capricorn – 4 degrees of Aquarius; 27 degrees of Aries – 4 degrees of Taurus and 27 degrees of Cancer – 4 degrees of Leo.
