Full Moon In Scorpio Lunar Eclipse

This full moon will be good for Taureans, Cancerians, Virgos, Scorpios, Capricorns, and Pisces but challenging for everyone else. The energy of this Full Moon will be intense!

It’s the time to dive deeper into your feelings with the full moon in Scorpio; the lunar eclipse creates a desire for rich, deep, and meaningful emotional exchanges that can be fraught with compulsion.  Deep emotions are coming to the surface for release, and nothing will stand in the way of purifying and purging things. We are all forced to change many things; shallow and surface relationships or foxes will not suffice and won’t meet your needs.

The energy can manifest as something subtle or a rupture in your body; the key is to know that you don’t have to know, as Scorpio is unconscious, and your task is to let anything from the emerging depths be felt and processed, with faith in your body’s wisdom and surrendering to the works of the universe. Your body has wisdom that knows the alchemy of healing better than your mind and willpower. Scorpio is the biggest carrier of transformation; therefore, what comes up in the Scorpio full moon will illuminate, burn, and transform so that we can start a new day with clarity, lightness, and a renewed sense of self.

Scorpio + Moon Personality

Scorpio is considered the sign of death, regeneration, and healing; Scorpio's profound, passionate nature can seem dark and unfriendly, but to some, magnetic and attractive. Mars and Pluto, Scorpio's ruler, give the scorpion a drive for success and power unequaled by other zodiac signs.

Scorpios s energy can be described as fearless, bold, passionate, creative, mysterious, determined, and highly loyal. Scorpions are very guarded in whom they trust, and it can be challenging to get close to them; they can also be secretive and withholding. On the other hand, hiding the truth from a Scorpio is very hard as they are the zodiac's detectives, and s work tirelessly to uncover the truth about anyone or situation. Scorpios make a good detective, investigative journalist, novelist, mystery or suspense writer.

To feel comfortable, a Scorpio moon needs control over its internal and external environment; there is a drive for emotional safety while engaging in intimacy on an emotional level. As long as their intimacy in relationships remains under control, that’s the only way they eulogy feel security; intimacy is associated with privacy, and privacy limits exposure to danger from external forces. The emotional energy generated if those intake boundaries become threatened is very intense and explosive to those to whom it is directed.

Scorpio is a fixed water sign that strengthens the moon's water and expresses its nature; there is a natural trine between Scorpio and cancer, which is ruled by the moon. As long as the functions symbolized by the moon are not threatened, they function under Scorpio's rule positively, but there can be intensity.

Positive + Negative Qualities

Emotions: Your emotions are deeply felt; there is emotional strength, charisma, and self-control. Your emotions can be explosive, dominated by strong emotions, and emotional power can be abused to gain your own ends.

Habits and behaviors: single-minded purpose, concentration brings tremendous energy, tap into hidden resources, carefully considered motivations, a comfort with power and sexuality. You can be overbearing in your presence and have ruthless, compulsive/ obsessive fascination with the occult and death, obsessed with power and sexuality.

Family/ mother: matriarchal family structure with strong emotional ties to family, especially as a source of strength and resources. Your mother may be compulsive and obsessive, dominant with an over-controlling parental style.

Relationships to past / collective :

There is a solid connection to the collective consciousness and culture with an obsession with the dark side of consciousness and cultural experiences, glorification of power and might, and openness to the control of occult forces.

Transcendental Power

Being in touch with your deepest emotions/ subconscious is the transcendental manifestation of the Moon in Scorpio, using your inner energies transformatively to reach deeper levels of consciousness. For you, this will mean transforming yourself thoroughly from the core outward; this means facing the truth in your thinking, emotions, and behaviors in which you’ve been conditioned and then rising above them. This will result in the essence of inner security and emotional freedom.

Take A Look At Your Chart.

We all have a discerning and healing influence of Scorpio Lunar eclipse in one or more areas of our chart, and here are a few areas you can look for:

  • Pluto is the new ruler of Scorpio and the eighth house: which is the source of others, debt, credit cards, mortgages, taxes, inheritance, insurance, payouts, and spousal support.

  • Mars is the old ruler of Scorpio, the first house of persona, physical appearance, energy, and drive. Do you have any personal planets in these two houses?

  • What houses are your Mars and Pluto located in your astrology chart?

  • Mars is currently transiting the sign of Cancer; therefore, everything related to cancer and its ruler, the Moon and the fourth house, are also highlighted.

  • Pluto is currently in a Capricorn, and all things related to Saturn, the ruler of Capricorn in the 10 house, are also highlighted.

  • Therefore you can look at your first, fourth, eighth, and tenth house and what house Mars is transiting in your chart.

  • Your emotions might be unsettled during this time.

The moon moves quickly through each sign and house; whatever happens now may leave a lasting impact on your psyche, but the emotion will be transient. Therefore let your emotions settle before taking action that may be long-lasting.

Questions to Ask?

  1. In a toxic way, such as jealousy, vengefulness, or suspicion?

  2. Do I live out of fear rather than Joy?

  3. Have I been rooting in the dark, focusing on the negative rather than the positive?

  4. Have I been cruel or cunning?

  5. Do I have enough sex? I need to feel good about myself.

The message of the Scorpio full moon lunar eclipse is an excellent time to bring sexy back, find a balance between over-intensity and lazy contentment but forgive and perform the entire moon forgiveness ceremony and be grateful by entering a state of gratitude by using the gratitude ceremony.


We are in the order of the first eclipse cycle, and the effects of the upcoming eclipse season can be felt approximately six weeks before the eclipse. Read about the eclipse here.

3rd House Moon

Your emotions become evident to yourself and others; there’s tension as there’s an interaction between the interiority of your psyche and the external environment; this tension may be motivating and stimulating. There’s a need to approach the world using your emotions to discover and gain information about the world; there’s an intuitive approach to being in your surroundings which can be a great benefit.  But you will need a fair degree of self-awareness to utilize this intuitive approach; otherwise, you’ll just be reactive to your environment.  The moon is about family, and the third house is about siblings, which suggests maintaining a close family bond, particularly with brothers and sisters and childhood friends.

In the coming two weeks, you might see more than you mean to the full moon will bring intense feelings about siblings and neighbors about whether or not you should be honest about how you feel. The message that you receive is well, very well, dreaming of the great escape where are you and possibly a loved one or two decide to take off to see the world or at least the countryside; this full moon reminds you that there’s a lot to work to be done close to home things that need taken care of and items on your to-do list need to be checked off. There’s also a reminder that you need to express yourself, and if you haven’t been honest about how you feel, now is the time to start to see your peace, and this could be talking face-to-face, Facebook emailing, or tweeting.

The dramas from your siblings are highlighted now and can be sorted out. It is an excellent time to release your communication issues; your siblings and or neighbors will be extra careful not to allow disagreements to escalate out of control which song the full moon will reveal information is needed to solve long-standing problems or questions. Take caution about what you write down, emailing, texting, social media, or anywhere else. Your emotions will run high, so don’t hit send and then regret it; problems with siblings and neighbors can arise, and issues can be resolved with forgiveness. Remember, it’s often less what you say than how you say it.

There may be a tug-of-war between where you are and where you think you could be; find a balance between your backyard and the big wide world; this is also a full moon that can trigger some development or resolution regarding a legal issue. There could be job opportunities abroad, distant friends and relatives, and a moon larger. Forgive yourself for any negative words you’ve spoken, forgive your neighbors, send links for any upsets, be grateful, and make your gratitude list. Affirmation as I express myself with love, life brings me all I need.

Deeper Insights

Scorpio's old ruler is Mars, the planet of war, energy, and action, and the new ruler is Pluto (8th house), the planet of regeneration and healing. There are three stages to Scorpio's evolution:

  • Reptilian survival instincts

  • Eagle, flying high, seeing things from an advance greater perspective

  • The phoenix is a mythical bird that rises above the Ashes of its own death for rebirth as an entirely new being.

These three stages are the soul's journey through the fire of adversity; the Scorpio full moon comes at the spring tide, following Aries new moon, when the forces of nature for regeneration and renewal are at their peak.

This can be an intense time that calls for sincere undertakings that will result in realizing all new visions for your future. Scorpio has two planetary rulers, governing two houses, the first and eighth houses of the zodiac. Your first house is representative persona and how you project yourself onto the world, while your eighth house is how you value others. A valuation can come in the form of inheritance, insurance settlement, credit, loans from banks, or your partners of financial resources.

This is also the house of death and taxes, so matters in this house can bring powerful alliances and unavoidable obligations. Look into your chart to find which house Pluto is located in; you will focus a tremendous amount of energy on these two houses. These areas of your life will be necessary; pay special attention.

For example, Mars in your sixth house with the Scorpio full moon total lunar eclipse can bring opportunities in your place of work, increase your workflow, or events related to your Health that arises. There can also be completing a big project or changing jobs; there's a finality about whatever is happening right now. The Scorpio Full Moon Lunar Eclipse at Lunar Belthane marks a time to release the olden and welcome the new. This is a time for releasing the old, welcoming the new, and unburdening yourself from the past in significant ways.


Being in touch with your deepest emotions/ subconscious is the transcendental manifestation of the Moon in Scorpio, using your inner energies transformatively to reach deeper levels of consciousness. For you, this will mean transforming yourself thoroughly from the core outward; this means facing the truth in your thinking, emotions, and behaviors in which you’ve been conditioned and then rising above them. This will result in the essence of inner security and emotional freedom.
