Reflect on the lessons of the Full Moon in Scorpio
Truth telling is not always easy, but eventually it becomes essential. The Full Moon was about having buttons pushed so that whatever has been below the surface for too long can come out and be revealed. It takes courage and strength to speak up, but when you do, or someone else does, we can have a great leap of learning that touches us to the core, changing us and our relationships forever. When the truth finally comes out into the open, life changes.
Full Moon’s are an opportunity to wake up and see what is staring you in the face. Especially with Scorpio, it’s about reality coming out into the open because it really needs to. This is when the not so nice things that have been pushed under the rug come into focus so the truth can be revealed. Revelations are moments that we can immensely learn from so we grow on deeper levels of consciousness. Thanks to Pluto in Capricorn in the mix with the Full Moon, whether it be personal relationships or the structures of society, office politics, rules, biases, dogma, or world politics, this Full Moon likely touched a nerve for many where we realize that when we know better, we do better.
This week is internal perspective time regarding the issues that have been arising. Remember that immediate concerns surrounding a Full Moon can be brought forth days before and after the Full Moon hits precision. The phases of the Moon are a process that flows. This week we should start to see some much needed resolution coming together. Remember that the bumps along the way get us to pay better attention to the road. Now it’s time to intend to move forward, integrating the lessons into your life and being better for it. Read more about the Full Moon in last week’s horoscope here.
Now, as this week begins the Sun and Jupiter can have us feeling like there is exaggeration and possibly dramatics. The power hungry types can reveal their attitudes as too big for their britches and dominating. Remember, when it comes to the ego, it’s all theater.
If you’re working on a project you may find it hard to focus on the details and thus miss a few of the finer points. If you’re having troubles with someone in particular, or difficulties in the office environment in general, you may feel like you can do so much better. Well, that may possibly be true, but it doesn’t mean you should hand in your resignation without a backup plan in place, which would simply be self-sabotage.
I would suggest since the Sun is in Taurus and Jupiter is in Leo, this is a good time to enjoy the abundance in nature and to absorb that kind of positive energy to help you feel the majesty around you. This type of practice can help you find perspective when you’re faced with drama. Spend some time in the garden connecting with the new life energy that is springing up everywhere appreciating the grande power of the sun and the earth.
The Sun continues to journey through the degrees of Taurus and on Wednesday reaches out to Pluto in Capricorn. This speaks to finding stability in life through your more harmonious, grounded, down to earth relationships. It is a great time for self awareness, psychological analysis and focusing on things that truly matter to you. Venus, the ruler of Taurus, is finalizing her stay in Gemini for now, so the beauty of words will reach minds and hearts. Holding a loving opinion of yourself and others is recommended while communicating.
Thursday Venus enters Cancer. The kind, affectionate, loving emotional bonds will grow. Maternal instinct are heightened helping bonds grow closer with those that matter. This is a time to appreciate your relationships that feel truly secure, to others as well as your relationships to all things in the world that bring you comfort. It is a great time to beautify your home so if you’re considering renovations or decorating, this can be a good time to browse the web and magazines for great ideas that feel comforting and beautiful. It's also a time where many will feel comfort in delicious foods and delicacies.
On the flip side, a clingy, possessiveness can occur with those who feel insecure and needing to hold on to something. Hoarding material goods as an emotional crutch is also possible.
Saturday, Mercury and Neptune are at odds. Mercury is the logical thinker, while Neptune is much more abstract and dreamy. Well, that can be a strange mix. Perceptions change depending on the information presented. A lack of clarity further impacts the way perceptions swing. However, it can be a good time to reminisce and have nostalgic moments that are touched with fantasy.
Both planets are right at home in their territory. Mercury is in Gemini, while Neptune is in Pisces, so both are strongly placed. Since these planets are at odds, be cautious and aware of the trickster side of Gemini coming out and the delusional side of Neptune. Scheming, deceptive, lying types could have a field day. Being honest and encouraging truth is the antidote. However, since some are unable to admit or face facts, it’s best to be cautious. By ensuring you are around those you trust, you can create a protective bubble so you don’t get caught up in the shadow side of others.
If you have any contracts to sign or business dealings, be sure to read between the lines and the fine print closely. Mercury is in shadow now and will be retrograde in a couple of weeks. Loan sharks, shady salespeople and the like can only draw you into their lair if you let them. If you’re not sure, if you’re feeling foggy and unclear about the details, get a second or third opinion.
Since the Sun and Jupiter are connecting as mentioned earlier, be careful if you feel a sense of overoptimism. Yes optimism is good, but it can also make us pay less attention when necessary and gloss over the fine print. Be sure that you don’t sign the dotted line thinking everything is hunky dory until you’ve really had a good look at all the details.
This week can be a great week especially if you connect at the heart with those close to you as indicated by Venus entering Cancer.
Spring is an awesome time of new energy and optimism. Yet, of course, life is a balance. There is a complex mix of many variables, and this week if you keep your wits about you and make choices based on honest facts you will find yourself doing better. Remember that the Full Moon in Scorpio symbolizes our need for awareness and transformation based on truth. This will continue to settle into our lives this week. The truth shall set you free.
I hope you all have a wonderful, abundant week. Thank you for reading and sharing the love. Namaste.

Sign documents only when you’re totally sure of what you’re getting into for best results.
