☉<—>☽ = ♏︎ Today the full moon goes exact at 20° Scorpio, shining it’s emotional spotlight of truth onto our psyche’s darkest and well hidden places.
Scorpio is a sign that seeks to plunge past superficial encounters. It feels far more comfortable cultivating intense emotional experiences in its day to day than sitting around indulging in crowd pleasing small talk. It wants to get to the heart and soul of the matter, sleeping deep beneath the earth. This is why Scorpio is often associated with psychotherapy, mystery, and investigative research - because its natural mode of operation is to dig deep and get its hands dirty.
✨🌕 Transformation is a word that often gets tagged onto Scorpio in modern astrology to deal with its classic involvement with straight up death. Death is an incredibly hard concept for our delicate human egos to accept, so when we can lightly label it “transformation” instead, we find it a bit easier to swallow. Ultimately, death & transformation are involved with this sign - for Scorpio often faces many phoenix-like experiences, where it rises from the firey ashes of what it once was to be born again.
Scorpio gets its reputation for being one of the most sexual signs of the zodiac and this is due mostly to “the ego death” desired when involved in the act. Scorpio by nature wants to escape the chains of it’s own ego, it wants to move beyond itself. When two souls merge into one through sex, they both experience a death of their own ego by merging together in that moment. This is the level of emotional intensity that Scorpio seeks out. Scorpio doesn’t want to have sex just for the sake of sex, that’s more taurus (sensually-based), Scorpio want’s to have sex to literally transcend the earth.
I’m giving you this run down of the typical Scorpionic personality so you have a better idea of how to work with the natural energy of this full moon today. You may see themes mentioned above surfacing in your own life. There may be a desire to investigate your own psyche, root out other people’s problems, or go below the surface in one way or another. You may long to feel heightened feelings of ecstasy or escape, and can easily be swayed to drinking and drugs to find that sense of elevation. Or maybe you just need a good ol’ fashion lay to get you through your day haha! Whatever it is you’re experiencing, it’s likely asking to be examined under the moody, brood gleaming beams of this Scorpio full moon.
