Full Moon in Scorpio: Let Go, Let Go, Let Go

“Why do people have to love people, anyway? I just have this talent for falling in love with the wrong guy at the wrong place at the wrong time.”

-- from Billy Wilder’s The Apartment

Gear up for one of the most passionate and volatile full Moons of the year, this Saturday, May 5. Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock, you’ve undoubtedly felt the rumblings of this volcanic lunation approaching since late April.

Scorpio is about the slow and steady accumulation of fixed feeling (read: all or nothing obsession). Sexuality, rumination, secrets and scandal abound when the Moon waxes full in the eighth sign of the zodiac. Scorpio rules all things related to death, rebirth and metamorphosis forcing us to relinquish the rotting and decaying aspects of ourselves and our lives. Ruts be damned!

This is the time to look at what no longer serves our highest good, and release any unhealthy attachments accordingly. Mercury (in Aries) and Saturn (in Libra) come into an exact opposition on this full Moon, forcing definitive decisions -- if not straight-up ultimatums -- in relationships. Communication is clear, deliberate and based on deep emotional courage now.

There can be tremendous regenerative potential in our most intimate relationships compliments of this mighty Scorpionic influence. Destructive inclinations are also possible depending on how we handle this potent death force. We must ask ourselves if that which we are tearing down is something we really want to relinquish or if we are just acting out of some deeply buried fear of loss. Scorpio is linked with both our creative and destructive urges. Thus the power of Pluto’s domain must be handled with the utmost caution and consciousness.

We also have to make sure that we aren’t falling into the trap of hurting ourselves simply out of self-protectiveness or a fear that others might harm us first. If we can let go of any need to control the emotional climate of a situation and embrace our vulnerability, we can unearth our true strength. This is the true gift of the Scorpio full Moon. If we must burn down the old structures, we can rest assured that, like the almighty phoenix, we too will rise again -- better and stronger than ever before!

“By letting it go, it all gets done. The world is won by those who let it go. But when you try and try, the world is beyond winning.”

-- Lao Tzu
