The names given to each of the monthly Full Moons changes depending on where you live on the planet, your culture, beliefs, religion an what’s currently trending on social media (yup really!). I tend to use the name that resonates with me most.

What is a Full Moon?

The full Moon is the energetic climax of the lunar cycle. It happens when the Sun and the Moon are in opposition (occurring in opposite signs) in the night’s sky. The result is that the Sun and the Moon influence us with opposing, challenging and energetically charged vibrations. 

During this time we are being asked to consider how far we have come, what we have accomplished and to practice gratitude and forgiveness before moving forward. This allows us to release what no longer serves during the waning phases of the cycle between the full Moon and the next new Moon. 

Throughout the course of a calendar year we experience a full Moon in every sign of the zodiac which allows us to come full circle in what is learned during that time. 

Tune into the full Moon theme each cycle by being aware of your thoughts, emotions and reactions to situations. Work through them with compassion, forgiveness and gratitude to reduce any potential discomfort as you aim to maintain a high vibration in your daily life.

What is the Scorpio Full Moon all About?

Scorpio is an emotionally intense water sign whose influence asks us to feel all the feelings whether we want to or not. A full Moon in Scorpio can be an difficult time for many. For me personally, working with Scorpio energy can be challenging and draining but the more I allow it to happen to easier it gets.

The main theme for the Scorpio full Moon is one of emotional transformation. This is achieved by allowing a light to shine on what we hide away from ourselves and others and finally addressing what needs to be dealt with.

This can trigger fears, unwanted emotions and cause us to feel what we often try to avoid. However through challenge comes the greatest transformation and that’s exactly what we experience when working with Scorpio energy.

We can transform through discomfort and emotional intensity because coming out the other side requires us to do the work now.

Work with the themes that come up for you during the time of the Scorpio full Moon and consider where you can create great transformation during this time.

To help you with this I’ve added some journaling questions below:

Inspiration and Guidance

Check out the below inspiration, guidance and wisdom from some of my favourite authors.

Scorpio Moon days can be emotional. There’s a lot going on beneath the surface or behind the scenes that isn’t immediately apparent. Sudden insights or hunches may arise, so watch carefully for them. Sex and power are on people’s minds at this time of the month. Some may be plotting revenge, while others are writing enticing profiles to post on a dating site. Passions are running high which can work in your favour in existing unions.

Moon Power, Lunar Rituals for Connecting with your Lunar Goddess

On the Priestess Moon, we walk in the moonlights, perhaps in a forest, or sit by the lake and meditate, We might also undertake to study the Mysteries, whatever that is for us. It is a time for spirituality: of you have no spiritual practice, look into that of others in order to understand them and their worldviews, and thus communicate better with them. If nothing else, go to Nature and be awed,
