On April 26 the magnificent sky will be illuminated by the Full Supermoon shining bright in its radiant pink aura. But behind the pacifying view hides the lucrative and intense energy of the Scorpio sign – a great time for inner unraveling and emotional release.
What Does a Full Moon in Scorpio Mean?
Every full moon represents a completion of a cycle. During the New Moon we set our intentions and plant the seeds of our success which we then re-evaluate at the time of the Full Moon. Think of it as the harvest period when we reap the fruits of our emotional labor and release that which no longer serves us.
Generally, the full moon cultivates the powerful energies of all the aspects in the sky and we feel that in all areas of our lives. But a Full Supermoon only enhances that astrological zest and we are blessed with double the energy. A Supermoon occurs when the Moon is very close to the orbit of the Earth.
This month’s Supermoon is the second of four in a row and in what a sign! Scorpio is the most intense of all the water signs, bringing about transformation and passionate waves of emotion.
It occurs at 8:31pm Pacific time on April 26, and at 4:31am UK time on April 27, at 7° 6’ of Scorpio. We urge you to check which house of your natal chart this falls in, because this is the area of your life where you will see the most influence on.
Perhaps the biggest theme of this Full Moon in Scorpio is transformation. Expect your world to be turned upside-down, and your emotions inside-out.
It might sound a bit contradictory, we know. Scorpio is a fixed sign just like Taurus, and stubbornness and resistance are its most attributed qualities. So how come transformation is on the way? Scorpio might thrive in hiding behind its mysterious mask, but at the end of the day, it has the potency to shed light into dark corners we haven’t explored before.
No one said that the pathway to rebirth will be easy. In fact, the hardship of this journey is highlighted by the Full Moon square Saturn. As the strictest father you will ever have, Saturn is determined to present you with obstacles along your path only to help you find your truth.
However, the stars always have your best interest at heart and are giving you the chance to embrace the courage and determination to knock those obstacles out of your way. This rebellious energy stems from the trine that the Full Moon forms with ambitious and driven Mars.
But at the end of every dark tunnel awaits the light. So do your astrological homework and you shall rise from the ashes once again.
Secrets, Secrets Are No Fun
If you’ve been hiding something lately from either yourself or others, it’s time to show your true face, because Scorpio has the power to illuminate anything that has remained unseen. Secrets will come to light, especially those related to the rich and powerful. We are at the zenith of a big year of disclosure and awaking of people, and this is all a part of the process.
What is going to amplify this sense of revelation is the conjunction between the Full Supermoon and Khambalia, which is a fixed star that is linked to powerful ancient secret knowledge and can be used for good or ill.
The Full Moon in Scorpio is in opposition with Uranus and this can instill feeling of rebellion and disruptive forces. In fact, seismic activity is quite likely to occur during this time.
Finally, this Full Moon in Scorpio is powered up by Pluto - the ruler of Scorpio, who stations retrograde in Capricorn on April 27 until October 6. What this aspect teaches us is how to learn our lessons in life and use this time to our advantage.
