"We are born at a given moment, in a given place, and like vintage years of wine, we have the qualities of the year and the season of which we are born. Astrology does not lay claim to anything more." - Carl Gustav Jung

Full Moon in Scorpio

   Welcome to an intense Full Moon energy when the solar and lunar bodies join together tomorrow night at 21 degrees of Scorpio. With the Sun in the Fixed Earth sign of Taurus, opposing the Moon in Fixed Water - Scorpio, issues of desire, persistence, patience, reliability and purpose come to the forefront. Both signs can also be obstinate, self-centered and stubborn when pursuing their goals. The Full Moon increases these tendencies.
   
 Emotions run high, along with the tides, and secrets may be brought to the surface, revealing inner motives that may or may not be shared with partners. This is a very potent time for sharing and putting creative energy to work in business and personal partnerships. It can pay off handsomely when all parties are of similar intent. Otherwise, jealousies and insecurities can cause problems. If you are dealing with joint projects and such issues arise, exhibit as much patience as possible while trying to get to the bottom of things. Creativity and collaboration are the new necessary watchwords to keep at the forefront of your mind. In the instance of ones' values being compromised, it would behove you to remember what's really important for your sense of self-worth.

   Another factor in the Full Moon chart is the Moon's recent sextile to Pluto, the planetary co-ruler along with Mars, of Scorpio, and his role in this chart. Sextiles are aspects of opportunity that can bring harmony when acted on. The time frame for acting on this beneficial aspect would be today and tomorrow; taking a step to regain your initiative is what's important. You might say, it's time to do the hard thing in order to feel like you're stepping back into your power.

    Mars' placement in Gemini and importance in this chart, is seen as he aligns with giant Jupiter in Libra, forming a harmonious aspect that incorporates the element of Air. Communication and interaction are the key features of Air. Jupiter enhances any other planetary energy he comes into contact with and will make it larger than life. Not being careful with ones words, promising more than one can deliver, or overreacting to a perceived, or real, inequality are possible flare-ups under this alignment. Try not to let things get out of control, because it will be all too easy to do!

   Remember to keep your cool, observe and maintain your dignity and self-composure and to keep your head in the stars and your feet on the ground.
