Scorpio Full Moon

 

Scorpio Full Moon 11/5/17 20 Scorpio 24’ 7.42am (Australian East Coast time)

Just as I always do, I re-read last years Scorpio Full Moon post. It brought back all the emotions from that time – hubby’s job, my job, the imminent departure of a dear friend, violence that was too close to home, the constant anxiety. All of it. It was a raw, intense, and deeply emotional time.

The leap that was made last year led to the decisions that led to the ultimate decision – the one that brought us to our sea-change.

The Full Moon in Scorpio is all about facing fears and letting them go, waving them goodbye. It’s about letting go of control and trusting the outcome. It’s about releasing something (or someone) to allow something else to come in. It’s about letting go to see what’s underneath. It’s about letting go to let it be the way that it will be. It’s about watching a movie without the spoilers, and reading the whole book before flicking to the end.

I’m a different person this year, and this time the Scorpio Full Moon isn’t so much about fear and the unknown depths – and those depths were pretty deep last year. This year it’s about healing, transformation and rejuvenation. It’s Scorpio Moon, but I’m in a different part of the cycle this year – and it feels sort of the same but, at the same time, so very different.

Doing it for yourself

Where 20 Scorpio 24’ (or thereabouts) falls in your chart is where you may be resisting change. You mightn’t think you’re afraid, but oh so often, that’s what it truly is. What are you hanging on to, trying to control the outcome of? It’s this you need to release. Your balance can be found on the other side of the chart – at 20 Taurus. Think about what this house represents and whether there’s balance or imbalance between these two similar, but different parts of life.

Where is this happening for you? 20 Scorpio is in my 9th house and trine my Sun (to the degree), and sextile Pluto and Uranus.

Ninth house Full Moons are generally about taking a leap of some description – trusting that you’ll land ok – into something beyond your normal comfort zone. With the Full Moon in Scorpio, something else has to be let go. What I’ll be letting go of – deliberately so – are those habits that are impacting my health (the Sun) and holding me back from taking the next leap.

If you’re not sure where this is for you, check out the info below, and refer back to Series 1 of the Toolbox for pointers on what each of the houses means.

If you don’t have any idea about your birth time, or can’t be faffed working it out, you can follow the solar guide. If you do know what house it is for you, head straight there. As a reminder, I’m using whole signs – and here’s why.
