Explore Your Dreams: Scorpio Full Moon



by Cathy Pagano May 03, 2012 02:18 PM EST

This weekend's Scorpio Full Moon brings together the two signs of Taurus and Scorpio.  Full Moons ask us to become aware of the issues associated with the sun's sign.

Taurus and Scorpio are both powerful signs, fixed in nature, strong in intent.  Fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius) ensure the continuity and solidarity of life.  They concentrate the energies of the four seasons.  Taurus concentrates the dynamic springtime fire of Aries into viable life forms.  Scorpio concentrates the dynamic autumnal energies into emotional strength.

When the Sun journeys through the sign of Taurus in the northern hemisphere each year, the Earth adorns Herself in beautiful flowers, sweet breezes, green leaves and grass, colorful creatures, trailing vines and warming waters.  Taurus seduces us into going out into Nature, calling to the sensualist in all of us.  All our senses come alive with the up-rushing energy enlivening Nature.  Nature calls us to pay attention to our bodies and our planet. What we discover is that our truest Self is wild and beautiful and wants to dance!  Is that how you see yourself?  If not, you’re missing out on the greatest joys of life.

Taurus, the sign of the Bull of the Mother, is fertile, lush and abundant. It wants to manifest something that sustains and values life.  It cultivates steadfastness, love of the material world, beauty (especially in physical forms), the Muses and Art, stubbornness, security and even enlightenment, because Taurus is also associated with illumination and the opening of the third eye.  As a Taurus, I learned about opening my third eye through a dream in which someone nailed eagle feathers into my third eye.  I had to learn to use my creative imagination with wisdom and spirit.  Otherwise, the imagination gets colonized by the capitalist imperative to BUY THINGS instead of creating beauty.


In Taurus, we learn to tame our carnal appetites and use our creative imagination to feed our souls and build a life that brings us beauty, peace and happiness, because it knows what’s of value.  Taurus values the body, the senses, as well as the eternal truths of the cosmos.  Conscious Taurus values Life, unconscious Taurus values possessions.  Since we all have Taurus energy in our birth charts, you might want to look at what you really value and how you’ve expressed that in your life.

At this point in our history, we need to understand Taurus’ lessons, because our accumulation of too much ‘stuff’ is endangering the world.  There’s always time to change, even though the Taurus within each of us can get stubborn about giving up its many things.  A balanced Taurus knows which one thing is of more value than all the many things on sale.  It will choose the ‘pearl of great price’ every time.  And that is the security of knowing our own soul’s desires.

Scorpio sits opposite Taurus on the astrological wheel.  It is the sign that ushers in the winter, a time of growing darkness and the death of the year (in the North).  Where Taurus is a fixed earth sign, Scorpio is a fixed water sign.  Since we all know that water is in constant motion, the fixed nature of Scorpio has to deal with some stagnant emotions.  These are the demons that the Buddha had to face and release.  This is why we describe Scorpio as the sign of death and rebirth.  It is an emotional death that Scorpio seeks.  All those long-held, negative feelings festering in our souls - betrayal, loss, death, bitterness, disappointment, anger, resentment, revenge, loneliness, fear.   In Scorpio, we can’t deny these feelings anymore.  But what do we do with them?  We can either let them make our choices for us, or we can choose to release them.  The liberation that comes from releasing these feelings brings us to a re-birth and a renewal of our emotional lives.

The positive side of Scorpio is that we listen to our emotions and follow them.  Scorpio is strong on introspection.  It’s all about what’s going on inside us.  So many people tune out their feelings and instincts when they come up against society’s values.  Scorpio gives us the emotional power to stand up for what we really need and want.  

So go out and watch this beautiful, extra-big full Moon rise in the East.  And ask yourself, "What do I desire?" 

Until Next Time,

Sweet Dreams!
