Full Moon in Scorpio; May 10th, 2017 ♏

“Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to get through this thing called life.” -Prince, “Let’s Go Crazy”

A Full Moon in enigmatic Scorpio electrifies the skies on Wednesday, May 10, 2017, at 5:42 PM EDT. The Scorpio Full Moon is probably the most intense of all lunations because Scorpios about exploring the depths of existence; the things that go beyond the physical experience – spirituality, emotions, death, rebirth.

The polar opposite of this Full Moon in Scorpio is the Taurus Sun. Earth sign Taurus is about natural beauty, stability…pleasing the senses – sight, sound, smell, taste, touch. It’s the Natural vs. the Supernatural.

“A very early morning hookup between trickster Mercury and prankster Uranus all but guarantees the day of the Full Moon won’t turn out as planned. However, evolutionary Pluto harmonizes with this lunation, revealing the inevitability of transformation. There is magic in the air — invisible to those who fear the unknown, but obvious to those who are willing to engage it.” -Rick Levine

New Moon in Scorpio; October 30th, 2016 @1:38 PM EDT ☾🎃♏

New Moon occurs today in the mysterious water sign of Scorpio. This energetic doorway invites us to delve deep into our innermost universe; to rummage around, get to the bottom, find the secrets, the lies, and soul-centered desires. It’s an emotional reboot in the sign of creation, destruction, and renewal.

“Scorpio has a reputation for being uncannily intuitive, even downright psychic. This will open our channels, bringing gut feelings and knowing flashes. In this uber-practical, material world (the domain of Scorpio’s OPPOSITE sign, Taurus) most of us brush these messages off, never giving much credence to our inner guidance. But in Scorpioville, nothing is too freaky, psychedelic, or uncanny to be explored. Let go and let it flow. The universe is your psychic hotline.” -Astrotwins

Venus in Scorpio; Sept. 23rd – Oct. 18th, 2016 ♀💕♏

“She cast her fragrance and her radiance over me. I ought never to have run away from her.” Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince

Venus, our planet of Love shimmers red with intensity as she slithers through mysterious Scorpio from September 23 to October 18th. Venus’ time in Scorpio takes us beyond the superficial to encounters of bare naked honesty. This is about the merger of bodies, minds and spirits.

While Venus in breezy Libra was all about making relationships peaceful and balanced, Venus in Scorpio seeks deeper and more honest interactions with others and issues of trust, intimacy, loyalty, and power could come to the surface.

“Cleopatra and Josephine Bonaparte relied on rose oil for its seductive properties. When you see and smell a rose it is hard not to think of pure love! In Indonesia they lay out ylang ylang flowers on the bed of a bride and groom to help get things going! Sandalwood is very relaxing and most helpful for getting into the mood for men and women. When it comes down to it though, anything that makes you feel sexy is going to be an aphrodisiac!” -Julie Wray, Olivine Atelier

Venus in Scorpio Celebs

☆Frank Ocean ☆ Demi Moore ☆ Denzel Washington ☆ Winona Ryder ☆ Lena Headey ☆ Nia Long ☆ Jodie Foster ☆ Anne Hathaway ☆ Nicole Richie ☆ Nelly Furtado ☆ Katie Holmes ☆ Milla Jovovich ☆ Leonardo DiCaprio ☆ Jim Morrison ☆ Joaquin Phoenix ☆

This Venus is a mesmerizer and loves playing with her sexual power. The game of seduction occurs subtly. Grand overtures and declarations are major turn-offs. Passion is silent. Eyes and body language speak volumes. Scorpios like things to simmer slowly and know that passion is usually intensified when it is restrained or suppressed.

Full Moon in Scorpio; April 22nd, 2016 ☾♏

“A farewell to my shadow is not my death; it’s my rebirth in darkness.”
― Munia Khan

A Full Moon occurs on Friday, April 22nd, 2016, at 1:24 AM EDT when the Sun in sensual Taurus opposes the Moon in mysterious Scorpio. Considered the most potent of the year by many astrologers, the Scorpio Full Moon is when buried emotions rise to the surface and take on a life of their own.

Under these Truth or Dare moonbeams, extreme behavior, amplified desires and emotional declarations are possible. But, the Moon in the dark realm of Scorpio also opens the portal to healing at the deepest level.

“In esoteric circles, this Full Moon is also known as the Buddha Full Moon. Legend has it that the Buddha returns from his high place in the invisible echelons of our planetary hierarchy of advanced teachers to bless the faithful and reconnect with Earth’s contingent of ever-increasing spiritual neophytes, disciples, and initiates.” -Mark Lerner

Taurus and Scorpio are opposite signs, but they also have similarities, both being Yin, fixed and possessive. Earth sign Taurus is about peace, stability and pleasing the senses – sight, sound, smell, taste, touch. Water sign Scorpio is about exploring the depths of existence; the things that go beyond the physical experience – spirituality, emotions, death, rebirth. It’s the Natural vs. the Supernatural.

Mars in Scorpio + Mars Retrograde ♂♏

By Molly Hall

While in Libra, the sign of the Scales, Mars has been driven to play fair and weigh all sides. On the Zodiac wheel, Libra is followed by Scorpio, and here we go beyond keeping the peace, or saving face, in areas that are crying out for deeper, more penetrating confrontation.

Mercury in Scorpio; Nov. 2nd – Nov. 20th 2015♏

Shit’s about to get real as Mercury, our planet of communication, joins our Sun in enigmatic Scorpio. This is a time for delving deep into our own personal mysteries. Opportunities are ripe for discussing and unmasking forbidden subjects, urges, thoughts and feelings. The topic of sex will creep into conversations, also, expect lots of dirty thoughts, sexting, and naughty memes!

With Scorpio-vision there’s a deep passion to probe the unknown, and for testing boundaries to find out what makes others tick. We tend to seek out truths in all that is hidden and undercover; the more deeply buried the better (so perfect for conspiracy geeks like myself!) 

Mercury is also lie detector in Scorpio, giving us a sixth sense for what’s unsaid…when words don’t really match the vibes we’re picking up. Mercury here listens and observes, takes mental notes, then files for future use. Be strategic about what you say and to whom.
