The Full Moon is at 7 Degrees Scorpio on 26 April 11:31 PM EST. Of course, the Sun in Taurus directly opposes it.
It is a called the Pink Moon because the Phlox bloom at this time of year in some gardens.. My Creeping Phlox are out in lovely lavender as I write this post.
Joining the Sun in beauty- comfort- and safety-loving Taurus are Mercury, Venus, and Uranus.
The full Moon is squaring Saturn in Aquarius bringing a desire for a structure for the change and inspiration that is afoot. Get a bigger vision board, we may well need it… And make it 3D. 😊
The Scorpio Moon is in a trine to its watery cousin Cancer, reminding us to heed the emotionally-charged water that courses through our bodies and brains, and that we can “feel our way” through ideas, circumstances, and changes.
Scorpio will share resources with others, marshalling strength from what exists so that its energy can be spent leveling up in its area of focus.
Taurus wants to find is own way, saying “I want to do it myself.”
At the Scorpio full Moon we are wise to discern when to reach out and when to be self contained. Both have their time and place.
It is well to know how to change one’s own lightbulbs and when to borrow a taller ladder from a neighbor rather than teetering on a pile of boxes to do the job.
Both Scorpio and Taurus have their careful natures.
Taurus values physical comfort, security, and familiarity.
Scorpio values access to its own power. When giving over to a power greater than itself… Universal power, for example, it can hesitate. It also wants to individuate and think, for a while, that its power is self-generated.
It typically is reminded that the real power comes from letting go and allowing in the bigger, more expansive Energies.
Experience, experimentation, education can all be connectors to the power of All That Is.
Does this make sense?
Meditating and resting can allow the words to sink in and find a way to sync up with each individual’s Soul and Personality mindset and their own flow of understanding.
The Moon is the way to evolution and transformation. The emotions – those we are aware of and those we are not — lead us onward. The Scorpio (the evolver the and transformer) full Moon, therefore, is a potent time to have a look at our current path and how we are evolving into the next iteration of the Self.
Some transformations happen in a flash… others happen so slowly we barely notice the incremental steps that brought us someplace entirely new. Many transformations are someplace in between.
When we are in touch with our own habits, comfort zones, ouch points, and desires we can be as open as we can be to the lightning quick, the slowly unfolding, and the good orderly direction varieties of change, transformation, and empowerment.
The Scorpio Full Moon happens but once a year. Stand in the glow of its pink power… and empowerment.
Much love, Lydia
