The Full Moon of the month will materialize at 5:58 pm PST on Sunday, April 29th in the sign of Scorpio.
What is a Full Moon?
A Full Moon occurs when the Sun and Moon are in direct opposition to one another in the sky. Because of this, the Moon's face is fully illuminated.
What does the Full Moon represent?
The Full Moon is the harvest. Full Moon's mark the end of a lunar cycle and should be used to take full inventory of your abundance. They are a reflection of all you have built and nurtured in the time since the last New Moon.
How will the Full Moon in Scorpio affect me?
Scorpio energy has a reputation for being incredibly deep and intense, and it is. Scorpio is a fixed water sign ruled traditionally by the planet Mars (the Roman God of War) and more modernly by Pluto, a planet associated with power in all of its complicated formations. When the Full Moon falls in such a fierce placement, it is not uncommon to feel emotions more acutely. While this heightened intensity is usual during most Full Moons, the Scorpio Full Moon wants you to go deeper.
Scorpio and its planetary rulers are associated with the life cycles of death, rebirth, creation and connection.
To celebrate and integrate the power of these themes would be to address some of the most difficult questions head on, questions such as: "What do I fear most about death and dying?", "What kind of power do I want to have in my life?", "What is my relationship to intimacy and rejection?", "What particular cycle am I experiencing in my life currently?" These questions are anything but simple and easy, and their answers might be just as complicated, but to get to the deeper root of our existence and can help us to organize and show up in our lives in a much more profound way, and trim from our lives that which has no connection to our broader purpose.
This Full Moon grants us the permission to take time for ourselves, by ourselves, to journal, cry, meditate and process as needed.
We may seek out further guidance from tarot, Astrology, numerology readings or other spiritual tools in order help create a container for all that may surface, or we might just need more rest and recovery than usual. However you choose to celebrate this Lunar event, try your best to have endless compassion for yourself. Know that exactly where you are is exactly where you are suppose to be. Any perceived roadblocks or feelings of being stuck or lost are all a very important part of the process. Once you can conquer your fear of these spaces of uncertainty and find some solace and comfort in the possibility that they contain, all the power you need to pave any path you choose will be in your hands.
