We have an intense Full Moon in smouldering Scorpio on May 4th, early Monday morning
. Get ready to experience life in the raw - a taste of living on the edge - and for passions to run high as we head toward the bank holiday weekend!
Scorpio rules sex, money, secrets and the cycle of life and death.
It rules our survival instincts and primitive desires - subjects which are often taboo and difficult to talk about. Relationships may reach a crisis point
, as primal feelings get awakened during the full moon in Scorpio.
This full moon represents a shamanic initiation where the soul's darker elements rise up to the surface to be faced, transmuted or released. Whatever happens, whether in your personal or working life, it will urge you to sit up and take notice of any unacknowledged anger, lust, jealousy, fear or shame and do something about it. This can be a transformative experience as it takes huge amounts of energy to suppress a difficult emotion! Once it is released, you will feel invigorated, empowered and able to relate to others more deeply!
Scorpio is also the detective of the zodiac, with an unrelenting desire for the naked truth, no matter what. So this full moon may bring some powerful revelations your way. No half measures where Scorpio is concerned!
When the Moon in Scorpio is full we always have Sun in Taurus
, Scorpio's opposite sign
. This provides the counterpoint for Scorpio's emotional intensity, reminding you to remain calm and sensible and to keep both feet firmly on the ground.
It would also be wise to keep an eye on your expenses, as Taurus and Scorpio
also rule money. And to make matters even more sensational, this Scorpio Full Moon squares flashy Jupiter in Leo, the master of extravagance! All the more reason to watch over your expenses this weekend, for they are likely to rocket if you are not careful!
This Full Moon square Jupiter has a real decadent feel to it, urging us all to throw caution to the winds and live it up big time.
The image is one of intense pleasures done in excess, generosity to a fault and everything over the top, putting on an opulent and phantasmagoric show! On the other hand, Jupiter in Leo is also highly chivalrous and romantic and with Scorpio and Taurus
being the zodiac's quintessential signs of sex and lust, the long weekend is also shaping up to be quite a sultry affair...
Wise words from William Blake (who had his speech planet Mercury
in Scorpio conjunct Jupiter!) perfectly capture this Scorpio full moon square Jupiter:
'You never know what's enough until you know what's more than enough'
'The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom'
Sometimes overdoing a good thing is all you need to set yourself on the right path... Like when you binge on your favourite food, then you never want to touch the darned thing again for a good long while...
Scorpio's ruler, Pluto in Capricorn
sends this Full Moon a supportive beam. So it may well be that this weekend reveals to you the best way to transform your life and purge it of inessentials, even if it has to take you to extremes to do so!

This full moon is here to urge you to release your fears of the future and try something new!
