Full Moon in Scorpio
It’s time to do your deep work. Scrub the kitchen and bathroom, clean out the chest of drawers, look deep inside to examine fears and motivations; and be a detective. Try to uncover some hidden information, try to solve a mystery. What is conspiracy and what isn’t? Is there any way to know for sure? Isn’t there some truth in everything? These are clearly Scorpio topics.
The Full Moon in Scorpio encourages us to get to the bottom of things. We may never know the full truth of Corona virus and this pandemic. I totally believe the personal experiences of patients, nurses and doctors. Everything else I’m not so sure. Is it from an animal? Is it from a lab? All we can do is our own detective work and live with what we figure out. There is consistent information that this virus is most dangerous to people over 65 and to people with serious conditions. AND there is consistent data that the virus occurs mostly where there are a lot of people in close contact: prisons, nursing homes, and factories, cruise ships, etc. When we wear a mask we are helping to protect others. This is like being in kindergarten and learning that the other kids are as important as I am. The virus is a lesson about learning we are all one.
The full moon today is occurring on the tail end of the Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn. Saturn is the established agenda. Pluto is the intense means that might be used to maintain the established way of life. Pluto is also the energy that destroys the old useless parts of something. The process is complex, slow and mysterious.
Jupiter is close to Pluto and that makes the misuse of power potentially exaggerated (because Jupiter makes things big—like gaining weight). The ultimate meaning of Pluto is this: not my will, but THY will be done. When we are little, the world revolves around us. We throw a tantrum if we don’t get our way. That is a natural expression of immature Pluto in action. Most of us grow out of that phase (at least for the most part). Sometimes the Pluto energy turns from tantrum to manipulation. Most pathetically, some of us never outgrow the need to physically express the raging inner Pluto child-- it’s all about me! Right now we witness groups of people demanding their so called god given rights to carry around semi automatic guns to intimidate others about wearing a mask or opening doors for business. It’s hard to understand why it’s difficult for people to grasp that this pandemic is about everybody. It’s about the inhabitants of our planet. It’s not just one place or one nation. This is not a time to be selfish.
And on that note we see an outpouring of goodness during this difficult time. Jupiter makes things bigger and that includes compassion and good deeds. Food, money, caring for those in need, nurses and doctors working under extreme stress wtih long hours, truck drivers still driving to deliver goods, people working in necessary jobs that keep us feed, keep our medicines on schedule, give us the supplies we need to keep on living-----so many good deeds in spite of the opposite manifestation of fear, greed and selfishness.
As we move through this Scorpio full moon period, it’s good to remember that Scorpio is one of the big gates into the other realms. This here reality is not the only dimension! We are not confined to our homes. There are many other realms to visit during this quarantine. Meditation, visualization and ceremony can free us from the worry of these times. Whatever big or small thing you can be grateful for, be grateful. And stay safe.
