Full Moon in Scorpio can be an intense period, as the transformative power of Scorpio energy seeks release during this time. The process of transformation does not need to be a difficult one, however, if we embrace Scorpio’s desire to uncover the truth and use it to metamorphose into a better, greater version of ourselves.
Here’s where the planets are currently located:
- Sun, Mercury, Venus and Uranus in Taurus
- Moon in Scorpio
- Mars in Cancer
- Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius
- Neptune in Pisces
- Pluto in Capricorn
With seven planets in fixed signs, the cosmic energy tends toward more stability – and resistance to change. With the Moon in a sign known for its desire to transmute energy in order to gain more power, there’s potential for dramatic shifts and revelations. If we fight the changes, that will make the Moon’s job that much harder. My suggestion: go with the flow!
Moon in Scorpio
I have a friend who is hesitant to tell people she’s a Scorpio because their reactions often lean toward aversion. The sign of Scorpio is frequently typecast as highly sexual, gothic, passionate and vengeful. It can definitely be all those things – but what I find most compelling about Scorpio is its awareness on a cellular level of the circle of life, death and rebirth. Its intensity comes from this secret knowledge of transformation & transmutation, and that’s why I think society and pop culture often has an extreme, sometimes fearful reaction to this sign. (To be fair, I think some Scorpios like and encourage this response – it keeps away those people who aren’t ready for them!)
To understand how Scorpio embodies transformation and transmutation, we need to understand the four stages of metamorphosis for Scorpio. The AstroTwins write:
In its most basic state, Scorpio is the ground-dwelling scorpion who stings every fear-evoking passerby. Second is the serpent, who charms and enchants but can be deadly venomous when threatened. Third, comes the observant (but predatory) eagle, taking in its sweeping view from high overhead and nesting with its lifelong mate. The most transcendent Scorpio form is the phoenix, who rises from the ashes of destruction and shows you the remaining signs of life.
As I mentioned back in November, the Moon is in its fall in this fixed water sign. This luminary would prefer to keep the emotional experience on a gentle, tranquil plane of existence, where feelings can be expressed in a way that’s going to result in greater understanding and connection. But when the Moon is in Scorpio, it’s taking a much deeper dive: what’s at the bottom of the ocean?
Flashback to November 2020
Take your mind back to November 14, 2020, during the Scorpio New Moon. It was a time when perhaps you realized a transformation was necessary; that you needed to hit the Reset button and start fresh in an aspect of your life that was being highlighted by the Scorpio New Moon. Now that the Moon is Full in Scorpio, check in with yourself based on your rising sign below and ask the following questions:
- Where did I embrace change in mid-November 2020?
- What areas of my life did I transform or reform at that time?
- What’s the current status of those changes?
- Am I now seeing another area that requires transformation in my life?
- What steps can I take to embrace new changes?
