FULL MOON IN SCORPIO – 30 APRIL 2018: The Balance Shifts

Full Moon in Scorpio 2018


The Full Moon takes place at 09° 38’ of the Sign of Scorpio. It strongly affects Scorpio, Taurus, Leo, and Aquarius Signs, which are born near the end of the 1st decan or near the start of the 2nd decan, as well as those having personal planets or their Ascendant near the degrees 7°- 11° of the Fixed cross.

Prelude

Since the Aries New Moon two weeks ago, the moon has traveled half its cycle. Sign by Sign, it moved into the Sign of Scorpio and now shines, late at night, reflecting the light from the Sun that is in the Sign of Taurus.

This reflection is a culmination. It reflects a turning point in a process that started with the New Moon in Aries, a process that awakened us and placed us at the center of developments.

The previous New Moon was the impulse that pushed us, and now the Full Moon in Scorpio is our emotional response to a need that is deeply ingrained in the fabric of our soul.  The need for a meaningful connection that transforms. It is us desiring rebirth.

All full moons in Scorpio awake a desire for transformation, but with this Full Moon the need is intense and we can now make the difference.


Now we tip the scales. With this Full Moon in Scorpio the shift is made and everything is set in motion.


Act 1 – Balance Shift

There are three strong astrological indicators that give to this particular Full Moon a fated or as I more prefer to call it, evolutionary nature.

Moon from within the 9°38’ degrees of Scorpio opposes the Sun in Taurus and at the same time, both lights are in a square aspect to the Lunar Nodes at 10°30’ degrees of the Leo – Aquarius axis. This is the current eclipses’ axis and actually, if one checks, this Full Moon is not only squaring the nodes but it is also square the total Lunar Eclipse of January the 31st.

This cosmic coincidence connects the Lunar Eclipse with this Full Moon and means that emotional issues manifested right after the January eclipse, things that have been brewing under the surface all this time, have now reached a critical point. We can no longer balance between material stability (Taurus) and emotional security (Scorpio). Now it is the time that the balance shifts towards the one or the other, marking the beginning of a new period in our life.

 

Act 2 – Manifestation

Saturn is retrograde and, from the 9th degree of Capricorn, is forming a tight trine – sextile aspect to the Full Moon in Scorpio.

This second factor gives this Full Moon a serious nature. Saturn, the great teacher, gives us an opportunity to not only discipline the intense emotions of this Full Moon but also eases the manifestation of our will and the achievement of personal goals.

What Saturn does is that it makes a reality out of the tension represented by this full moon and with its retrograde movement, a Karmic feeling to what is being unfolding for us, is emphasized once more.

 

Act 3 – Developmental Patterns

The third astrological factor that denotes development, is the Trapeze aspect pattern that is formed on the chart of this Full Moon.

This is a combined aspect pattern formed by two Learning Triangles, each one in opposite direction to the other. The Trapeze has at its corners, Saturn, the Moon, the North Node, and Mercury.

This trapeze pattern, in its remarkable combination of multiple aspects, suggests a sequence of cyclical learning processes that result in personal development.

 

Finale

All these suggest one thing.

We cannot escape the unavoidable culmination and the making of important decisions.

The fact that between the two lights, the Moon is the one that forms the most aspects means that it is what we feel that will eventually make all the difference under this Scorpionic Full Moon.

It is our emotions that will set the motion and under this perspective it is fortunate that the Moon conjuncts Jupiter and is making a trine aspect to Neptune, because we are inspired.

We intuitively trust that after some initial unrest something good will turn out.

 

Epilogue

This Full Moon in Scorpio is a critical time especially for those having personal planets close to the 9th degree of the fixed cross. Depending on the houses where it falls on our personal chart it may mean:

  • Issues that first appeared at the end of January have now reached a culmination point.
  • Moving to a new house as a result of long felt emotional turmoil with family members.
  • Changes within marital dynamics result in actions that set us on a completely new course.
  • For some women, the realization that emotional intimacy matters more than material security becomes an achieved certainty.
  • For some men, passionate feelings for a woman, that were put aside in favor of serenity, reawaken and the game is still on.

One thing is sure…however it may affect us, this is a Full Moon that will be strongly felt.

SCORPIO NEW MOON – 18 NOVEMBER 2017: Empowerment & Belief

Scorpio New Moon

Scorpio New Moon takes place on November 18th, just a few days after Venus made a conjunction with Jupiter within the same Sign.

Every New Moon is a promise and a beginning and especially when it occurs in Scorpio, then it is a new cycle of discovery of our hidden power.

This New Moon comes after the concerns that were raised by the Full Moon in Taurus on November 4th two weeks ago. These were concerns relating to our sense of inner value and the degree of the trust we can inspire to others. With the New Moon in Scorpio, this cycle of insecurities is complete, and we begin to realize the power and the depth of our inner emotional power.

This happens because this New Moon gets its color from the zodiac's most powerful psychological Sign, and with Jupiter being also in Scorpio, this awareness comes as a result of a substantial introspection that gradually reveals our reserves in power.

The favorable aspects monopolize in the chart of the New Moon, with the trine between Jupiter and Neptune closing and with Venus, having made its conjunction with Jupiter, now approaching the two Lights.

Inspiration, optimism, hope, self-confidence, increased popularity, harmonic relationships, even new relationships and luck, are among the energies that color the landscape in which the New Moon takes place.

Within such a spectrum of positive energy, even the square formed by Mars and Pluto, which is the only tense aspect of the chart, is expressed in a milder manner.  It manifests more as incentive, increased self-confidence and sustained stamina and much less than explosive nerve or sexual tension.

The male (Sun) and the female (Moon) are united in a tight embrace within the Sign of passion. However, in this New Moon, any dark Scorpio elements - which encapsulate emotions of ceaseless intensity that "drown" more romantic expression, are completely softened within the energetic landscape I have described above.


The scene is not one of two lovers in a dark room experiencing ultimate intensity. It is more like a room not totally dark, but selectively lit by the glow-in-the dark reflections of the favorable astrological aspects. The red beams are the Mars - Pluto square that is power and desire. Reflections within the silence of the night and the lovers are near sharing secrets.


That is exactly how this New Moon in Scorpio feels.

Yes, because besides belief in ourselves through the awareness of our strength and the value that we can inspire to others, this New Moon also brings about the essential communication in our relationships. Precisely what it has been lacking, the previous weeks and in doing so, it help us to renew the trust between us and the important others.

So remember, when you will start to feel the energy of this lunation, be sure that it will result in empowerment and belief in yourself.


Find out where the New Moon falls in your chart

and embrace its promise for renewal.
