Hey lovelies, how are you doing tonight? Sorry for the late post, but it’s been a great weekend of work, fun, and learning. Here’s what you need to know for tonight’s full moon energy.
From Chani Nicholas:
If you are feeling wiped, wrecked, or reconfigured by life, you are channeling the more intense aspects of this full moon. A full moon in Scorpio is a time to allow all the emotions that would otherwise lay beneath the surface , to surface. You may need some down time, some me time, some time to allow a transformation to take place.
Life often feels overwhelming around a full moon. This one sits with Jupiter and it’s ruler sits with Pluto. All signs point to an abundance of energy. energy that you can use to regenerate or recalibrate. There’s no right or wrong thing to do in a full moon, as long as it involves taking care of yourself, you are on the right track…
…Scorpio’s magnetism can attract to it what wants, but the most potent of its powers lies in being able to grapple with everything that its gifts brings. Resilience teaches us that gain never travels alone. It is accompanied by the best of questions. Was it worth it? Is this what I want? What has had to go by the wayside in order for this growth to occur? This full moon sits with Jupiter, also in Scorpio. Having been there since October of 2018, Jupiter and the full moon are asking us what we have grown over the past six-months in the area of our chart that contains Scorpio. It asks us at what expense has this growth occurred, and what we have learned wasn’t worth carrying forward with us?
|| Such good questions- got me thinkin’!||

From The Raven and The Mystic:
This moon in Scorpio reflects what Scorpio is best at- Transformation, Self-reflection- especially into our shadows, emotions, relationships, and with purging, purifying. And from there, moving forward with fire and conviction.
Scorpio is most comfortable with darkness, and while the veil is thin on a full moon, we also tap into the powerful magic of Beltane (May 1), a dynamic festival of fire and courtship/fertility.
We may at this time court our dreams, our lovers, our intentions, and visions. There is a heat and urgency to Beltane that quickens creativity.
Scorpio itself is a creative force, a sensual, magical energy that invites our courage and intuition. Now is the time to make bold steps in business and relationships. Strike while the iron is hot, as they say.
|| Full moon magic has me wishing for some new sensual pleasures, perhaps a new flirting partner. Magic works best when we wish and leave it alone. Can’t wait to see what happens. ||

The Goddess Circle writes:
Believe in yourself and your abilities.
Only you can save yourself.
Take a step back and focus on the big picture.
Facing fears in relationships.
Going deeper or separating.
Make sure you’re not the only one putting in effort.

From Aeolian Heart Astrology:
On April 29th, 2018 the Moon will be Full in Scorpio, shining a bright beam into the murky windows of the unconscious mind. Under a Scorpio Moon, it is primal instinct, not rationale, that will dominate. Expect to become prey to the claws of hunger and the sharpened teeth of desire.
The Sun’s light in Taurus worships the blossoming fertility of earthly paradise. But the Moon in Scorpio sees the inevitable future, a shadowy vision of paradise lost…
…In Scorpio, lunar energy becomes sullen and dark moods begin to build like storm clouds on the horizon. The illumined realm of the unconscious will certainly arouse many primordial fears: horrifying visions of disease, drought and famine. Under such an influence, you may more willingly succumb to the pain of discontent and act out of desperation.
It is not contentment, but hunger that inspires forward motion. Consumed by instinct, the snake eats its own tail. The sign of Scorpio embodies the undulation beneath all natural cycles, where hunger precedes satiety and death precedes resurrection.
This Full Moon in Scorpio arrives with a cloud of darkness and discontent. But natural law requires that you submit to the process.
Think of this time as a climactic point of awareness. Whenever your sense of suffering is heightened, you can push past apathy into healing and renewal. You can uncover your instinct for resurrection, that burning desire for transformation.
At this Full Moon in Scorpio, you may grieve many things which are being lost, swept away by the tides of time. But the message of Scorpio is to remember that paradise is lost so that it may be reborn.

Well, there you are. If your world is falling apart, it’s only because it’s time for something new, hopefully better, to be born from the ashes. If you’ve hard decisions to make, make them under this moon. Let go of the relationships- perhaps those with your own self- that need to go. I’ve put the fantasy of a sunshine lover in its proper place (as a lovely memory), and I wonder what the moon in my bed might deliver instead. I’ll dance with the darkness to find out.
Wish I could see your faces in the moonlight tonight my friends,
