Scorpio Full Moon: Liberating From Our Shadows
The Scorpio Full Moon arrives on Monday, at 8:31pm Pacific Time, falling opposite to Uranus and square to Saturn.
These are challenging planetary transits that are dropping us into our depths, helping us anchor into profound change and liberation without giving up. Fortunately, a Grand Trine emerges in the background, a perfect triangle forming around Earth between the Moon, Mars, and Saturn. We have the ability to grow up and persevere, to embrace our shadows, and carry on with greater maturity and resolve. Venus and Mercury cross Uranus in the days prior to the Full Moon, and we are truly turning the wheel—breaking out of the past and embracing new ways of loving, relating, and communicating. Meanwhile, Pluto, ruler of Scorpio, has just stationed retrograde, so there’s extra weight to this Moon—an internal reflection that’s calling us into the cauldron, helping us learn that pain is not punishment, pleasure is not reward. We can embrace our challenges and the scarier layers of who we are, surrendering to what is and loving exactly who we are. From here, we can carry on envisioning and building the world, lives, and relationships we want to inhabit. More change is coming. What do we desire as we leap into a new age? How will we participate in our collective reinvention? By now, we have some experience with riding the waves of change, entering into new and challenging terrains while learning to adapt and hold space for our triggers and deeper emotions. But we aren’t experts yet.
The Taurus Sun is reminding us to ground, rest, and eat good food, to take it easy as we continue to undergo cathartic breakthroughs. We are making peace with our shadows as we break out of longstanding ruts. Miracles are possible when we form wider circles for ourselves and others to be imperfect humans who feel depression, despair, grief, uncertainty, and anger.
These emotions we’ve deemed ugly hold tremendous wisdom, if we can love all of who we are, allowing our pain to reveal its wisdom.
