Moon insights by Candace Looft, of Beyond the Veil Tarot / Collage by Janeva Zentz
Look Out For/ Work With:
Transformation, removal of fears, death, rebirth, psychic abilities, the underworld, releasing toxins, finding lost items, secrets exposed, examining hidden aspects, mental health, cleansing, deception revealed, trauma, magic.
This is a very intensely emotional Full Moon. The Sun in earthy Taurus is opposing the Moon in the late degrees of Scorpio. As with all full moons, it’s a time of realization and completions. Scorpio has a tendency to be all or nothing, exploring the deep depth of our soul. This is a full moon where we may be more inclined to feel overwhelmed with feelings we have been suppressing for some time. Not everyone's skeletons will want to come from out the closet during this lunation. You may notice some people will prefer to hold tight to their feelings, and perhaps respond with anger. But when it comes down to it, those who react in this matter are still dealing with fear.
Meditate on what negative or toxic people/ tendencies need to go. With this moon, we will be encouraged to dig deep and uproot some not so pleasant things. It can bring up some bad habits, hurt feelings, or ugly situations. Through this process of shining a light on these topics, we’ll be better able to release old patterns and heal. This is a time where belief and vulnerability are key. The results of this moon may surprise you. You’re likely to be tackling the monsters in your closet, opening pathways to massive shifts.
Both the Sun and Mercury make beautiful trines to Pluto. This is allowing us to share our biggest fears, and express our pain or sorrow. This paves the way for real tangible change. We’re being given a golden opportunity to tell people what security truly honestly feels like. What we have been lacking, and need to survive. With Venus conjunct Uranus, we explore what new and innovative ways we can change our relationship with our security. Be that our relationship to money, food, or even our body.
Mars in Cancer is turning up the heat with its squares to Chiron. We are asked to take a more nurturing approach, and be open to love and kindness. We don’t have to react irrationally when others offer a helping hand. Keep in mind, this is the first theme of the Venus-Mars sextile for the year, making it easier for us to receive support. It only presents itself if you are open and choose to react differently. Neptune Trine the north node encourages us to choose not to take the path of being a victim but being a healer. Both to ourselves, but as well as others. Working with water is greatly encouraged during this full moon. Scorpio is a water sign, that is ruled by Pluto.
You see all emotions are truly only sourced from two basic sources; love or fear. It’s one or the other. Anger can not truly be a derivative of love. Anger represents fear of something, of someone not being trustworthy, or fear of being hurt again. The beauty of this moon is, in fact, it’s capability to help us express our greatest fears and release them from our consciousness. It’s only then we truly have the ability to heal and change our trajectory. If we keep telling ourselves the same story over and over, we perpetuate that pain and make it part of our identity. Change isn’t pretty, often times it’s messy and downright scary. But on the other side of that, there’s something beautiful and brand new.
Scorpio magic is related to increasing psychic ability or working in other realms. Work is often best done in the late evening hours. Any work that relates to banishing, detoxing, removing poisons or psychic attachments is encouraged. Scorpio oftentimes relates to fears, and how to transform yourself in order to overcome them. Due to Scorpios connection with death and transformation, often times cleansing work, ancestor work, or actually burying objects help for closure. Think “spiritual funeral”. Being a Scorpio myself, I can’t even begin to tell you how many times i’ve had to ritualize endings.
If something hurts, do your Scorpio/ Pluto work this moon. Let yourself feel all the feels. Review old photos, love letters, texts and sacred things. Let it all out. Cry, be angry, sad or mad. Then make a pact with yourself that you are MOVING ON. Burn your candle, burry or recycle you treasures or connections to the past, take your bath and move on with your bad self!
