Scorpio is the most intense and penetrating of all the water signs. The modern planetary ruler Pluto governs the powerful cycles of endings and beginnings. This full moon is a time to release old resentments and turn to a fresh new page in this cycle.

When we travel into this unknown and sometimes turbulent darkness, the intention is emancipation from limiting conditions that are not inspiring or energising us. Maybe it is the shadow aspect of yourself that you have been holding on to for an extended period and it has outworn its stay. In order to do this, we must first walk through the fire like the carbon in coal requiring heat and pressure to become the diamond.
Reflect on if you have any controlling, obsessive or manipulative tendencies? Be truthful, as you take responsibility for these dysfunctional aspects as you courageously lay down your sword and accept your vulnerabilities.
The full moon energy can sometimes bring up irrational fears resulting in nightmares. These maybe related to life worries, health or social concerns. Our subconscious is a remarkable part of our mind that stores previous experiences, mental programs, beliefs, memories that we are not conscious off. When we are in a place of stress it is important to incorporate relaxation techniques to calm our mind. This can be especially prevalent when trying to get a quality night of sleep so a kit especially curated for those who experience poor quality sleep or wake up often during the night could be useful. Using silk to help to settle into a good night's sleep can also be beneficial during this intense lunar period. Silk is naturally hypoallergenic & breathable, helping regulate your body temperature.
For those of you with natal moon in Scorpio you will feel at home within this watery passionate world. You are a deep-sea diver that knows their way through the darkness of these underworld caverns. This maybe foreign to others as they struggle to understand your metaphoric need to submerge in order to survive or drown in the sheer overwhelm of emotions. If pushed into a corner to verbally express these sensitivities it can feel like life or death.
The ancient planetary ruler of Scorpio is Mars activating creative potential for transformation through the volatile process of creation & destruction, so it is best to avoid drama and power play. In this process you find the higher octave of healthy love and sexuality. Heart-connection through heightened sensuality, intimacy and spiritual expansion. We cannot truly love if we are in pain and sometimes there is much unearthing to be done. This applies for us all as we each experience the zodiacal energies and planets in our own charts.
“Your task is not to seek for love but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.” - Rumi
