Full Moons bring out the contradictions within us, and that is because in the Full Moon the Sun is opposite the Moon, in two opposite signs with opposing polarities. This Scorpio Full Moon features an opposition to the Taurus Sun: the intensity and passion of Scorpio needs to find balance against the need for serenity and peacefulness of Taurus. Both are fixed signs: stubborn and powerful, with a tendency towards rigidity and difficulty letting go. Scorpio, though, is intensely emotional and dramatic where Taurus is, or at least wants to be, placid but still powerful – very like the bull for which it is named. This Full Moon reminds us that we can become our best selves when we find balance between these two dynamics: the power of emotions and the power of stillness.
Pluto, the planet of transformation is the modern ruler of the Scorpio Moon, and Pluto harmonizes in a trine to the Taurus Sun at the Full Moon. Pluto strips away all artifice to bring us into close contact with the absolute Truth of our very existence. Under this influence we can emerge fully from the chaos of confusion into the transformation of the true Self.
This Full Moon urges us to find balance between the comfortable (Taurus Sun) and the deep and meaningful (Scorpio Moon) – to venture fearlessly into the Underworld of the psyche (Pluto) and find the gifts of transformation.
