Today, April 22, we dive into the depths with the Scorpio full moon, which cranks up the intensity and attunes us to our souls. Have you concealed a few layers of your persona? Overlooked some nuances or key details? The full moon will illuminate those. Scorpio is the zodiac's shaman and the ruler of extremes. It can draw out both our darkest shadows and our most enlightened selves. Ready for a major shift in your life? Turn it over to la luna for some deep processing and healing.
Under the spotlight of a full moon, we can expect a lot of interesting intel and colorful confessions to come to light. The first full moon of May is sometimes called the Full Flower Moon, or Mother's Moon, marking a time of increasing fertility with warming temperatures for new life to bloom. (Since Scorpio rules the reproductive system, consider yourself on notice.)
Legend has it that there are three phases of Scorpionic energy. There's the low-vibe, ground-dwelling scorpion who stings every threatening passerby, then the observant eagle taking in its sweeping view from high overhead. The most transcendent Scorpio form is the phoenix, which rises from the ashes of destruction and shows us the remaining signs of life. In the wake of Nepal's devastating earthquake and Baltimore's uprising, the need for Scorpio's healing alchemy has never been greater.
Here are a few ways to channel this power-packed full moon to your advantage.
