Strong Emotions, Transformation & Endings
FULL MOON in SCORPIO
5th May 2023
The upcoming Full Moon in Scorpio on May 5th, 2023, promises to be a pivotal and catalytic event for change in our personal lives and the world as a whole. This is because it’s not only a Full Moon but also a Lunar Eclipse. Eclipses have a profound impact on our lives, often marking significant turning points and bringing about transformative experiences. This particular eclipse is especially ground-breaking, as it occurs in the axis of two fixed signs - Scorpio and Taurus - intensifying the energy and magnifying the potential for change. Even though these changes might be uncomfortable for some, the energy around this eclipse makes sure that ultimately, we understand that staying the same would be detrimental to our long-term growth. All in all. whatever happens during this powerful event is likely to have far-reaching consequences that will unfold over the next six months.
● The symbol for Scorpio is the scorpion, representing its intense and transformative energy. Scorpios have a deep desire for passion, power, and uncovering the hidden truths and secrets of life. This is why this Full Moon's energy will be cantered on the idea of renewal and transformation, providing an opportunity for us to shed our old skin and embrace a new beginning.
● As a fixed sign, Scorpio is known for its stability, determination, and resistance to change, often displaying a consistent and unwavering focus toward achieving its goals. With this in mind, we can expect this lunation to be shocking, as we will possibly feel rather reluctant to the inevitable change happening.
● As a water sign, Scorpio is associated with emotional intensity, intuition, and depth. With this in mind, we can expect this Full Moon to bring lots of emotional releases and dramatic moments that will surely feel transformative on a spiritual level.
As we know, the nature of Scorpio is intense and generally reticent to let go. During this cosmic event, we might feel as if we’re reaching some sort of dreaded breaking point that we didn’t want to get to, but that was ultimately inevitable. And as we navigate these intense emotions, we might come to realizations about toxic behavioural patterns -ours or from others- and luckily conclude that there is something that must be released in order to grow.
This is why this Full Moon might feel like we’re purging…whether it’s emotions, behaviours, thoughts, or even people, the general idea is that we have to let something die within us, so that we can grow and transform ourselves, in classic Scorpio fashion.
Erratic behaviour around us
Because the Full Moon occurs in Scorpio, this obviously means that the Sun will be directly opposite in the sign of Taurus. Usually, this would mean that on some level, despite the scorpionic intensity happening, there would be some degree of stability on the other side of this eclipse… right? Not so much this time. This is because the Sun will be conjunct with Uranus -the planet of unexpected events and disruptions- at the time of the Lunar Eclipse. This gives the sun’s light a sort of erratic characteristic that will definitely seep into the collective unconscious and have us all acting a bit out of sorts.
For this reason, during this lunation, you might feel as if other people are being erratic, and that behaviour will possibly be the reason why you might decide to cut your ties to certain people. Depending on your chart, these may be romantic partners, co-workers, and even family.
The bottom line is that whatever comes to light from others during the eclipse, might be the final push for us to decide enough is enough when it comes to our relationships with others.
Observe rather than manifest.
It's no secret that Full Moon eclipses can bring a lot of intense energy with them. As tempting as it may be to try to harness this energy and manifest our desires during this time, it's important to remember that eclipses are not necessarily the best time to launch major projects or make big changes.
The reason for this is that eclipses can bring unexpected and chaotic energy with them. While this can certainly be transformative, it can also make it more difficult for us to control the outcome of any major endeavours we launch during this time. In other words, anything we start during an eclipse could potentially behave in a more erratic and unpredictable manner than usual.
It's also important to remember that eclipses can have a ripple effect, with their energy continuing to influence us for up to 6 months after the event itself. So, even if things don't seem to be happening right away, trust that the energy of the eclipse is still working behind the scenes to bring about positive changes in your life.
In short, while the energy of this Full Moon can be powerful and transformative, it's often best to let it unfold naturally rather than trying to force major changes. Focus on releasing what no longer serves you and trust that the universe has your back. With this approach, you can navigate the intense energy of the eclipse with grace and ease.
Acceptance and release
While Full Moon eclipses are often associated with endings and closures, this particular eclipse brings a sense of mutual acceptance and growth. Yes, there may be some drama and difficult situations that come to a close during this time, but it will be for the best of all parties involved. The closure will be a mutual decision, and everyone will be able to move forward with a sense of peace and understanding that is essential so that we can truly understand the growth that comes from letting go.
We must remember that endings are a natural part of life. In fact, they are necessary for improvements and new beginnings to occur. The Full Moon in Scorpio is a powerful reminder of this fact. We may need to finally release some things that no longer serve us, but doing so will make space for new opportunities and experiences to enter our lives.
So, as we move through this intense astrological event, let's embrace the energy of Scorpio and the transformative power of the Lunar Eclipse. Let's trust that the closures that occur during this time are for the best and are leading us to a better version of ourselves- and those around us.
