Creation & Destruction Work Hand In Hand
The transformative sign of Scorpio knows that best. And we’ll get to witness this first hand on April 29th, 2018 with a ‘tell all’ Scorpio Full Moon. No one keeps a secret better than Scorpio—but all bets are off when a full moon dances through her dark waters. Scorpio is the Moon’s weakness because it’s the sign of her fall.
An important turning point comes into play and a decision will need to be made by some of us out there. Full Moons are about completion and letting go. Something in our lives needs to evolve and either close out or be taken to a new level. This is where the destruction part of the story comes into play.
And no sign destroys better than Scorpio.
A volcano comes to my mind when I think of this sign’s powerful destruction abilities. Quite frankly, I bet either you or someone around you will feel like erupting when the clock strikes this Full Moon. It’s going to be intense because Scorpio wouldn’t have it any other way.
Before I get into the nittie gritties, I want you to keep in mind that a volcano’s symbolism isn’t just about destruction. A volcano represents creation too. When a volcano erupts it certainly does destroy everything in its path. But in burning everything down it gives the perfect opportunity for something to take bloom upon the blank slate. This has happened time and time again all over our earth.
For everything that dies, a new creation and growth eventually takes its place. That is the essence of the regenerative sign of Scorpio.
Death (destruction) and life (creation) are embedded in together. One can’t exist without the other.
Recently I visited the Big Island of Hawaii and learned about Pele, the beautiful goddess of Volcanoes. I listened to ancient stories involving her lusty and erratic behaviors—right alongside her big heart filled with gentleness and love. She had an immense capacity to love but was jealous, unpredictable and capable of great fury and violence (similar to a volcano). Most importantly, she was perseverant along with passionate in everything she needed to destroy. No entity could surpass her firey beauty and spirit. And no force could be reckoned with the fire that fueled her.
Goddess Pele sounds rather Scorpionic wouldn’t you say? Of course, I can’t say for certain what her sign was but I feel pretty confident in my astrological guess. Scorpio, after all, is all of these characteristics and then some. Even though its a water sign there is simply no denying a powerful fire in its eyes.
Power and Scorpio should never be taken lightly.
Scorpio’s power goes beyond the normal parameters. It waits quietly in the shadows and instinctively knows what the end game is. Scorpio’s patience, persistence, and willingness to go places that many others wouldn’t even consider, allow it to continually become the phoenix rising out of the ashes. Maybe some of us out there have been patiently waiting in the shadows and this full moon marks our decision to strike.
This destructive and intense energy will dominate the April Full Moon scene. But it will also come along with some intuition, insight and magical occurences. Neptune will be quite enchanted by Jupiter at this time. The long standing 2018 combination has been helping us explore new avenues of understanding. It’s been helping new magical opportunities crop up that are taking our spiritual plane to the next level.
The Scorpio Moon will also be encouraging us to dive deep into our subconscious.
All sorts of secrets and big reveals have the potential to surface. Mysteries, as well as personal inner insights will be looking to be released. Be prepared for a wake up call of the intuitive type.
Despite some of the darker energy surrounding this full moon, there will be some lucky elements too. The Moon will be moving towards a conjunction with Jupiter which is a great thing. A confidence booster may be in store—or some sort of luck factor. Perhaps a special moment has finally arrived to come out and do what we’ve been waiting on for so long.
With the Sun in a beneficial combination to Saturn, our perserverance and strength will be emphasized to the fullest.
This is a moment where we can feel empowered and rise above uncertainty.However, some of us might need to jump outside our comfort zone in order to get in touch with it. Which leads me to the Taurus part of this month’s full moon story.
Scorpio’s polar opposite sign, Taurus, will be vying for the limelight too.
While the Moon is in Scorpio, she’s going to be pulled by the Sun into the safety of comfortable Taurus. A tug of war and balancing act between the two of them will be kicked into motion. Being fixed signs – neither wants to budge so it’s bound to get intense in some way.
Rather than get caught up in the drama – wait and see what stirs you around this time.
A sign of some sort is bound to make its way to you. Also be very in tune with old patterns or attachments that may be cropping back up. The Moon’s Nodes will be in a fixed grand cross highlighting old karma that needs to finally be released. It’s also possible that you have some encounters of the magical kind. Scorpio is known for being the sign of the dead and those that have past away. Whether someone dear to you makes an appearance or you feel some sort of dejavu experience— signs are in play. It’s just a matter of how open we will be to receiving the message.
April’s Scorpio Full Moon Tips
- Be prepared to be pushed out your comfort zone. Full Moons are tipping points and things could get messy and uncomfortable as a result. Do me a favor though and do the Scorpio thing that says “don’t fear so much.” Fear can be crippling and holds us back. Be like a Scorpio, stare it down like a dragon and trek on.
- Expect to see power, beauty and darkness all emphasized at once. Be aware of power plays and people’s true motives slithering to the surface.
- Like the snake, the Scorpio influence helps us to shed our old skin. A transformational ability will be readily available at this time to anyone that has recently felt like something died inside. This is the perfect time to make your final release and start over once again.
- Feel the feelings. Another key ingredient to Scorpio is their feelings. Like a warzone, they have intensity that runs deep—but the tricky thing is they rarely make it known. They keep their secrets very close. Losing control and power is unfathomable and likely the only thing they fear. With the moon illuminating this intense feeling sign, we can expect feelings we’d rather not show to come front and center.
- Be near the water or have the water element near. Scorpio relates to fire but its a water sign. Having this element around us now will help get in tune with the power of our feelings in order to calm the waves.
