Once a month, the Sun and the Moon land in opposite zodiac poles – exactly 180° away from each other – creating a Full Moon. The Sun has been and will be in Taurus until May 20 this year, therefore, this Full Moon will take place in Scorpio – Taurus' opposite pole on the zodiac wheel – exactly at 07°. This Full Moon sheds light on our hidden nature, the mysteries that lie beneath the realities we normally choose to see. Scorpio pulls us into mysterious depths. The dark has power, and that makes it daunting, but also promising. This Full Moon dares you to take the bull by the horns and reclaim that power.

Under the Moon's bright light we can see ourselves, our circumstances, and those around us with more clarity. Suddenly, we are not only aware of the good and pretty, but the not so good and ugly, as well. Full Moons are uncomfortable by nature, because they inevitably show us what we are used to ignore, hide, or deny. Scorpio will only amplify this, being the sign that rules the hidden, secrets, and intimacy, which we tend to hide. Unlike New Moons – who represent births and beginnings – Full Moons represent culminations, fulfillment, and endings. Their bright light also points out what ideas, cycles, and relationships have peaked or are bound to end in our lives. They show us who and what we need to let go.
