Navigating your Emotions: How to Harness the Power of the Full Moon in Scorpio

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!

Scorpio's Mantra: “I desire.” Scorpios possess a strong ability to attract and manifest their desires.

With the Full Moon in Scorpio, it’s time to dive deeper into your feelings. 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 fixes 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 the 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 we can start a new day with clarity, lightness, and a renewed sense of self.

Scorpio, known for its deep spirituality, can persist through life's challenges. Positive characteristics of Scorpios include being determined, intense, protective, intuitive, imaginative, investigative, truth-seeking, driven, passionate, powerful, magnetic, attractive, and perceptive. They also exhibit genius qualities, exceptional analytical skills, focus, shrewdness, keen observation, high emotionality, and a solid attraction for success. 

On the downside, Scorpios can display traits like jealousy, possessiveness, obsessive-compulsive tendencies, overachievement, dark thoughts, pessimism, controlling behavior, extremes, intense emotions, coming on too strong, withdrawal, withholding, being hard to read, and projecting an overwhelming emotional intensity that may be off-putting.

The trio of Scorpio symbols includes:

  • Scorpion/Serpent

  • Eagle

  • Phoenix is the legendary bird that emerges from its ashes to surpass its previous state.

Scorpio + Moon Personality

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

Scorpios 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 work tirelessly to uncover the truth about anyone or their 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 feel security; intimacy is associated with privacy, and privacy limits exposure to danger from external forces. The emotional energy generated if those 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, ruled by the Moon. As long as the functions symbolized by the Moon are not threatened, they function positively under Scorpio's rule, but there can be intensity.

Positive + Negative Qualities

Emotions: Your emotions are deeply felt, and you possess emotional strength, charisma, and self-control. However, your feelings can be explosive and dominated by strong emotions, and you can abuse emotional power to achieve your 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.

Here are some areas of your chart to examine for additional insights:

  • Where in your chart can Scorpio be found? This is where you will experience the most impact during the Scorpio Full Moon. 

  • Pluto serves as the modern-day ruler of Scorpio, with its natural rulership being the 8th house (involving resources from others, debt, credit cards, mortgages, taxes, inheritance, insurance payouts, and spousal support). Consider which planets are in your 8th house and are currently in transit. 

  • Mars is the traditional ruler of Scorpio, with its natural rulership being the 1st house (related to persona, physical appearance, physical energy, and drive). Reflect on the planets in your 1st house and those presently in transit.

  •  Identify the houses where Mars and Pluto are situated in your natal astrology chart. 

  • With Mars currently transiting the sign of Pisces, all Pisces-related themes are emphasized, including its ruler, Neptune, and the 12th house.

  • As Pluto is presently transiting the sign of Aquarius, themes linked to Uranus (ruler of Aquarius and the 11th house) are also emphasized. Your emotions may feel quite unsettled during this period.

While the Moon moves swiftly through each sign and house, any experiences, though they may have a lasting impact on your psyche, will be temporary emotionally. It is advisable to allow your emotions to settle before making decisions that could have long-term consequences.

Questions to Ask?

  1. Am I living in a toxic way such as being jealous, vengeful, or suspicious?

  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 is that it is time to bring sexy back, find a balance between over-intensity and lazy contentment, forgive and perform the entire Moon forgiveness ceremony, and be grateful by entering a state of gratitude using the gratitude ceremony.

Twelfth House Moon

The Twelfth House Moon, known as the secret zone, is about confidence, investigation, and possible police activity. You could contact hospitals, institutions, and invalids. Solitude, personal limitations, and problems will confront you. You should stick to routine work and try to find the cause of past mistakes. In the following weeks, taking time out and being on emotional alert would be good, as this Full moon can bring up intense feelings about your secret self. The message of this full moon is to take time out, and this full moon might come when you're feeling a bit down, which can come when you think about the demands of life. This is an excellent time to meditate and practice yoga. Heed the message and made a balance between work and relaxation. This is also an excellent time to look at where you have been sabotaging yourself with your behavior. This house is also known as the house of self-undoing, which shows us where we can be our worst enemies. But the Moon being here can heighten these behaviors, and we get to see them for what they are and let them go.

The Full Moon presents an ideal opportunity for forgiveness and gratitude ceremonies. Click on the highlighted links for more details.

Deeper Insights

Scorpio embodies passion and depth, often appearing complex, mysterious, and not easily understood by casual observers. Governed by two rulers, Mars (1st house) symbolizes war, energy, and action, while Pluto (8th house) signifies regeneration and healing in modern astrology. The evolution of Scorpio unfolds in three distinct stages:

  • The initial stage embodies reptilian survival instincts.

  • The second stage elevates Scorpio to an eagle, soaring above situations to gain a broader perspective.

  • The final stage transforms Scorpio into a phoenix, symbolizing rebirth from the ashes into a new existence.

These stages reflect the soul's journey through challenges. Scorpio's influence is present in our astrological charts and personal lives. The full Moon in Scorpio aligns with the spring tide, a time of peak natural forces for renewal and truth.

This period presents an opportunity for personal and collective growth and achievements.
