The sign of Scorpio is deep, private and tends to not reveal much. Full Moon’s can generate drama and intensity that bring illumination. You may discover that no matter how hard you try to contain something, this weekend may bring emotions to a tipping point.
Fresh from the Autumn/Spring equinox, this lunation emphasises what my first astrology teacher described as the ‘me vs. we’ dynamic. For anyone who has the polarity of Aries/Libra as a feature of their chart, or has the Sun, Moon or ascendant in those signs, finding the balance between the needs of relationship (Libra) and the needs of the individual (Aries) can often be a constant battle.
Sensitive emotions may rise and fall as soulful Neptune triggers this lunation. Logic and reason may be overcome by intuition or your gut instinct. The nebulous nature of Neptune prefers to err on the side of fantasy and imagination. If things don’t make much sense under the Full Moon, accept that and allow your feelings to guide you.
Full Moons are about culmination and reaching a decision or turning point. As this eclipse is aligned with the karmic South Node of the Moon, it’s themes are strongly tied to that of release and letting go. Aquarius is about your place in the collective, the group or the family. Where have you given up your sense of bold individuality (Leo) in order to appease someone else?
It’s almost hard to believe we are approaching the mid-way mark of the first month of 2017! Like those funny memes online that describe those days between Christmas and New Year being kind of like a ‘I don’t know where I am’ phase- the astro weather has continued a sense of this year not fully starting yet. You’d be forgiven if you still feel as though you’re straddling the boundary between 2016 and 2017.
