Monday night (overnight into Tuesday), we have the full moon in Scorpio. Everyone I’ve encountered who offered the slightest bit of window into their world has been on edge to some degree. It’s a building tension, prelude to an eruption. An eruption usually means lava. In this case, no one seems to know exactly WHAT is coming, but they’re under pressure, a feeling of foreboding.
Monday morning, the Moon in late Libra squares Pluto and trines Jupiter – the mood is full to bursting. This can actually make life feel sweet and ripe… vital. We need tension to ever feel relief. By afternoon, the Moon moves into Scorpio and a trine to Mars. Tension plus action sets the stage for a strong performance.
Late Monday, early Tuesday when the Moon opposes the Taurus Sun for the full moon, Uranus is a few degrees past the Sun. Uranus draws the full moon opposition into square with Saturn in Aquarius. Whatever traction we’re experiencing, whatever choices we straddle, they’ve been a long time coming. In fact, it feels good to get this baby birthed and into the world, demon or angel. It’s the release we need.
Tuesday the Moon goes on to square Saturn and oppose Uranus exactly. Then it opposes Venus and Mercury in Taurus as well. By nighttime, the Moon trines Neptune. This is a big wave of emotion. It crashes past the structures of our collective landscape, tastes our senses-plans-desires. It hits that magical moment of pause before receding into itself.
And it is also us. What tastes us, we taste back… in that moment it is us. That knowing doesn’t last, but it becomes part of our experience and pushes us into another realm. Deep merging can’t last, but the effect does.
Wednesday morning, the Scorpio Moon sextiles Pluto and squares Jupiter. We may feel the need to move on quickly, but don’t overlook the opportunity to make something meaningful and foundational of all this (gestures widely).
When the Moon moves to Sagittarius, it picks up a trine to Chiron (exact overnight) and Mercury in Taurus heads into orb of sextile to Neptune. The mood is adventuresome and upbeat, perfect for getting lost in the ease of finding your best path. It’s exactly then that the best sort of ideas filter in from the background.
On Thursday, the Sadge Moon sextiles Saturn for some active stability. The Moon goes on to square Neptune as Mercury makes its exact aspect. Let the mood carry you wherever it carries you. Unwatched pots boil.
Friday morning, Venus moves into orb of sextile to Neptune as the Sadge Moon sextiles Jupiter. The mood is SPICY with sweet and compelling undertones. Compelling to what? It’s a feeling, an inclination to desire and its center may not be located precisely.
By afternoon the Moon hits Capricorn, the Sun conjoins Uranus, and the Cap Moon opposes Mars… in swift succession. It’s a mood to move, and with the Sun also in orb of square to Saturn, the direction we move may be someone else’s call. Or the whims of another may impact our path forward.
In any case, we’re likely to work at getting free, and that can be terrifically satisfying.
The full moon takes place at 7 degrees Scorpio. Where does it hit your chart?
