Full Moon in Scorpio 2019 – Enjoy the Swamp

The Full Moon is 27 degrees of Scorpio on the 18th. I’m not going to doctor this post up with roses and hearts because this is one of those jaw-dropping, shock-rocking mind-blowing astro transits even if things are going relatively well for you. Happy campers, enjoy the swamp! Obviously it hasn’t been drained yet. It’s all kinds of wet and wild right now, however anyone wants to take that statement.

Venus is conjunct Uranus in Taurus on this day, bringing unexpected encounters and conversations to the table, for a feast of freakiness. Are you ready for this?

On the serious side, it’s worth mentioning that the current influence is a full-tilt, no-nonsense one that doesn’t take well to meddling, prying and betrayal. Scorpio is a fixed water sign ruled by the planets Mars and Pluto, which relates to war, aggression, power and hidden depths. This sign is about secrets, seduction and slime. It’s also about exposing snake-oil shamans and shills. It’s about time the TRUTH be told.

Everyone has a different set of circumstances to deal with, so how this influence manifests will be unique to each person or entity. Again, please forgive my forwardness if none of this pertains to you whatsoever (then, take it with a grain of salt). If it does, what kinds of things are you discovering about people or situations that are taking you by surprise? Have you recently been lied to? Met face-to-face with a gatekeeper of evil? Been hijacked by whining, bitching, hypocrites who take pleasure in mocking those who are less fortunate than themselves? Well…

Mercury is opposite the Full Moon so it’s important recognize or at least check out more closely what’s going on even if that’s not an easy or PC thing to do. Sometimes people are very skilled at masking their true intentions. The strange sensation that you cannot trust someone but don’t know why should not be ignored but investigated. Sure, giving the benefit of the doubt has its usefulness but only up until a certain point and you know the point I’m getting at. There is a fine line between intuition and paranoia and it’s up to the individual to decipher this by close examination of the facts that they have been able to gather as those facts relate to them or to the subject matter at hand.

Another “dark” side to the pit of Scorpio is that some people under its influence can dish out the dirt with ferocity but they can’t just can’t seem to take it. We’ve all met with these types in life. This is another danger to look out for but not necessarily anticipate, especially for those who are finding that the stuck has finally become unstuck and they can move forward again with ease.

Healing of body, mind and spirit is a huge highlight this weekend, and not just on the surface levels. There is a push toward getting to the root of some long-standing issue with hopes of bringing greater clarity and functionality to the area. There are many methods and tools of doing this, which may continue to make themselves known over the next couple of weeks.

For others this is a time of grief, or even of intense joy. Whatever is happening we can be sure that something is changing in a big way. Something,or someone, has left or morphed into something else. There are many emotions around this event or situation. It is no small thing but one to be acknowledged in full, and perhaps even to honor with a rite of passage into another chapter of life.

Scorpio Full Moon 4-22-16

The Full Moon at 2 degrees of Scorpio, April 21st/22nd casts a light on our hidden values, drives and motivations as it reflects the Sun in down-to-earth, beauty-loving Taurus. Much that Taurus represents, particularly things relative to security seem to be challenged under the Scorpion’s lunar gaze. With partnership-focused asteroid Juno so close to this Full Moon the levels of security within close relationships feel threatened for many.

Scorpio’s original ruling planet Mars went Retrograde on the 17th and is a very strong influence now. Both Saturn and Mars Retrograde in Sagittarius point to a need to reassess our concepts of what is “truth” and how we go about expressing and defending it. Mars back tracks into Scorpio on May 28th and we have a taste now of how it will be demanding that we become emotionally honest with ourselves, in order to align our actions with our truest desires.

April 22nd is Earth Day, and with the Taurus Sun we are indeed most focused upon beautifying, purifying, and protecting our environments. As we make our way through the mist, mud, or tears of this watery Full Moon we wander the edges of infinite possibilities. If man’s greatest fear is the fear of the unknown how can we venture forth without so much of the fear that tends to immobilize us? If our home planet and its inhabitants are in danger of toxic overload how can we tread lightly upon this earth to preserve its remaining treasures and ensure a safe haven for future generations??

The earth has emotions that we respond to whether we are conscious of them or not. We feel what She feels, especially under glow of a full moon. In Scorpio the feelings always run very deep, like subterranean rivers. Within these feelings is a need to purge, to shed old layers, to become renewed.

Tune in to my next radio show online with KOWS station, on April 26th 9:00-10:00 am PST to hear Chris Brokate, founder of Clean River Alliance share tips on how to clear the rivers and earth of trash with greater efficacy.

Wishing all a healing full moon and weekend!
