Scorpio Full Moon: X-Ray Vision

The moon was full at 9.39 Scorpio on April 29th at 8:58 pm ET


This moon, at its peak fullness, squared the north and south node, creating a cross pattern among all of the fixed signs: Scorpio, Taurus, Leo, and Aquarius. Both the traditional and the modern ruler of this moon, Mars and Pluto, were conjunct in Capricorn. The moon made a quintile aspect to these two, and a sextile to Saturn in Capricorn. These are not light, fluffy influences. It’s a moon that gives you x-ray vision. You can see through things, right down to the bones of the situation.

Scorpio doesn’t do half-hearted. This is an all-or-nothing sign. Scorpios are known for seeing beyond pretense and image, to people’s motivations. They’re also known for making people uncomfortable. It’s because they can really see you. They Know. At this full moon, whether you have a lot of Scorpio in your chart already or not, you’re gifted with this kind of vision. If there is a problem, you see it. If there’s a solution that’s been hiding from you, you can see that too. It’s a moon with a lot of powerful, Mars-driven energy, one that can speed up your transformation. But only if you’re 100% honest with yourself.

I feel Saturn in Capricorn behind this one, in a Scorpio-style Power Behind the Throne kind of way. Maybe because Mars and Pluto are both in Capricorn as well, there is a sense of determination, of pushing through with fixed perseverance. Scorpio is another sign, much like Taurus and Capricorn, who doesn’t give up. The Scorpio may go underground to finish a project, keep it secret for years, or manipulate the situation in a different way to get what she wants. But as long as she’s passionate about it, the one thing she won’t do is abandon it.

That thing you’re not looking at: take a hard look at it now. See all the way through it, down to the very bones that hold it together. You can use that knowledge to your advantage. Every bit of information you have is a form of power. Use it to help yourself with a project that requires your determination. Scorpio would.
