The energy has been building, and the seeds we planted at the new moon have been steadily growing. Now, as they come to fruition, we can express gratitude for the new things manifesting in our lives—and just as importantly, identify the old stuff that’s taking up too much space.
What will we need to let go of to make room for new growth?
Every month, the moon and sun face off from opposite ends of the zodiac, reflecting the opposing forces that need to be balanced or integrated in our own lives. With this full moon lighting up the Scorpio/Taurus axis, we’re asked to balance our desire for transformation (Scorpio) with our need for stability and security (Taurus).
With the sun in Taurus, we’re not so interested in being “transformed.” (We’re perfectly comfortable as we are, thank you very much!) But deep down, we know all too well that nothing in life is permanent—and the full moon in Scorpio is a powerful reminder.
This awareness can stir up a lot of deep, intense emotions that disrupt the laid-back Taurus vibe. But still waters run deep, and there’s a lot more going on beneath the surface than we realize. This full moon brings attention to the subtle undercurrents and energies playing out in all our interactions.
We may even find ourselves in situations where people in our lives confront us with our own “shadow” side. But no reason to fear—look at it as an opportunity to know yourself better and transform your less-desirable qualities into more positive expressions.
Here, how this full moon transit will affect you, based on your sun sign.
Nothing escapes your watchful eye—but like it or not, you’re the one under the microscope at this full moon. Relationships are mirrors, and the way you see (and treat) the people in your life says much more about you than it does about them. Positive or negative, desirable or undesirable, the qualities you’re picking up on in a significant other are almost certainly part of you, too.
For all the pride you take in a job well done, you can’t shake the feeling that there’s so much more to you than your current work allows you to express. And yet, you may have no idea how to translate your hidden talents or spiritual gifts into anything “useful” or “productive.” That doesn’t mean you should ignore them—they’re coming up right now for a reason. But it may take some time for the ultimate purpose to reveal itself, so for now be patient and stay the course.
Ever the pragmatist, you enjoy socializing most when there’s an objective purpose behind it. But ultimately you (and everyone involved) will gain more from the association if you actually enjoy each other’s company. This full moon inspires you to take a closer look at who’s in your social network, and why. If it’s purely a marriage of convenience, you may want to cut ties and start looking for a new tribe.
About 99% of the time, you’re content just to do your thing and be yourself, whether anyone else notices or not—caring what other people think is beneath you anyway! But this full moon is that other 1% of the time, when you could really use a little validation. The question is, how to earn that seal of approval without compromising your principles?
With an imagination like yours, you don’t have to leave your neighborhood (or even your house) to go on an adventure. Still, as much as you love the familiar faces and places of home, this full moon could hit you with a serious case of wanderlust. It doesn’t matter whether the journey is to a foreign land, or the outer reaches of your mind—as long as it takes you somewhere new and exciting.
When things get rough, you like to think you’re someone who can pull themselves up by their bootstraps. But let’s be honest, we all need a little help sometimes—and this full moon could bring you to the point where you finally swallow your pride and ask. It doesn’t mean you’ve failed, it means you’ve matured.
This is your season in the sun, and no one’s denying your right to enjoy it. But if all the attention you’re paying yourself has left loved ones out in the cold, this full moon brings their feelings into the open. Just like a garden, relationships need tending in order to thrive—and right now, you’re being asked to weed out any old, selfish habits of yours that are crowding your partner’s space and keeping them small.
A little indulgence now and then can be good for you, but lately you’re wondering if your favorite vice is compromising your health. Don’t brush these feelings aside—pay attention to what your body and your subconscious are trying to tell you at this full moon. Chances are, they’re sending some not-so-subtle hints about what you should cut out to keep living your best life.
“Living in the moment” is easier said than done when there’s so much to look forward to and so many plans to make. But this full moon reminds you that the present moment is the only thing you really have. The future is never guaranteed, and even your best-laid plans may not turn out exactly how you envisioned. Might as well learn to ride the wave and see where it takes you!
All the world’s a stage, and you’ve been cast in the role of a lifetime. So why do you feel so unsatisfied? Maybe it’s because the part you’re playing bears very little resemblance to the person you know yourself to be. This full moon turns up the volume on that little voice insisting on authenticity. How can you bring your public and private selves into a truer alignment?
It’s easy to appreciate people and places you only get to see on special occasions—it’s much harder to see the beauty in your own backyard and the people you interact with every day. But if you approach it with an open mind, this full moon could transform the way you view your little corner of the world.
There’s no doubt about it, you’ve got good people in your life who will always have your back. But this full moon can raise some doubts and insecurities about your ability to stand on your own two feet, should the need arise. Dig deep, take stock of your own resources (material and otherwise), and connect with your own inner strength.
