Full Moon in Scorpio

Full Moon in Scorpio - Transformation

"Whenever a thing is done for the first time, it releases a little demon."

— Emily Dickinson

The week begins with a powerful culmination of the current lunar cycle — the Full Moon in Scorpio (9:13 PM PDT 25° Scorpio/Taurus). This is the climax of the creative growing power and transformational change that was initiated by the Taurus New Moon at the end of last month, in important aspects to both Pluto and Saturn. The lessons before us are focused on channeling our strong ambitions by blending determination, flexibility, and a spirit of cooperation. It is the element of cooperation that seems to trip us up. However, by the end of the week, there are important opportunities to understand that we have to separate the value of our efforts from the way that those efforts are received by the world around us. The link — the connection — between our efforts and the world around us is found in the people with whom we are working directly. There are pitfalls to be found this week as Mars, ruling Jupiter in Aries, conjuncts Neptune, which continues the temptation to build idealistic, overly optimistic expectations while missing the value and meaning of the gifts that are to be found directly in front of us. As Mercury retrogrades back through Gemini and sextiles Jupiter, we have profound opportunities to recognize the value and importance of the connections that we make with others. The lesson to learn is that our individual efforts, in pursuit of personal ambitions, is meaningless and impotent without a recognition of our connections to those around us — those who have helped us and those who receive, recognize, and appreciate our efforts. The Sun arrives in Gemini on Thursday, ahead of Saturday's inferior conjunction with Mercury, which highlights the extended sextile to Jupiter. The influence of Jupiter provides us with an important capacity to stay flexible and philosophical about the outcomes of the effort that we put forth into the world around us. This week presents us with some sense of order and purpose which does not limit our ability to stay flexible. We have the chance to make grand impressions and gain the support of powerful allies through understanding the importance of making conscious connections to those with whom we come into contact.

Sunday's Venus-Chiron conjunction produces idealistic ambition that stirs our response to the transformed landscape that we find under the Full Moon in Scorpio. We need to find ways to 'keep the pump primed' on Monday, rather than simply absorb the beneficial fallout from the Full Moon. It is important to guard against any idealistic expectations that aren't fully grounded in 'reality'. Idealism may slip into self-righteousness on Tuesday. Frustration may encourage us to 'bend the rules'. Impatience and intolerance can encourage us to simply ignore the needs or rights of others. There is a bit of order and structure on Wednesday that helps us to focus on achievable goals. Increased activity requires increased responsibility. Relationship challenges may derail our progress on Thursday. Pushing, prodding or manipulating others is not how we can make lasting progress. The overall mood lightens on Friday. The Sun's arrival in Gemini brings increased awareness of our need to make strong connections with those around us. We may accomplish more by listening than talking on Saturday. We gain more capacity to blend ambition with flexibility and cooperation.
