There are very Full Moons that I clock-watch through but this Scorpio Lunar Eclipse is one of them. If you’re jaded with it as well, one or more of these suggestions may alleviate the merde?
Why is it so nuts? Lunar Apogee Lilith is at an aggravating angle with the Full Moon, which is already amped as it’s an Eclipse. This has advantages but it emphasizes any Madonna-Whore style contradictions within relationships.
Mercury Retro near the Sun adds extra zing to the Taurus-Scorp polarity. The hypothetical ideal would be some sort of mellifluous merger between recently realized emotional nuances or intimacy requirements and our established paradigm.
But if Merc Retro management means you’re wrangling logistics or troll-whispering, it can feel like you’re cheating on an undeniably amplified psyche or inner world. Not to mention more likely to snap and treat onlookers to a Freudian monologue.
FYI, the recent Daily Mystics have been loaded with more structured support for this tricky astro – these tips below are the levity version but see the D.Ms or Horoscopes for the gravity.
Because Mars and then Venus are about to be in Leo, with the Venusian vibe lasting for months. Catharsis and existential anything are not lighting you up these days but the Mars and Venus show could become an extremely productive performance. With Lilith and Sappho already in Leo, the preparations for your upcoming ‘role’ will be thrillingly erudite as well as daring. Step One: Power Hair or An Anthem that signals the style zeitgeist you’re about to bring. Step Two: Declining any parts in control-dramas. Your show will be better.
If you’re inclined this way, you’re probably in mode already and just skimming this as a parallel brain exercise between bouts of obsessive research. Whatever your topic du jour – Megavitamin B6 Syndrome, mystery charges on a bank statement or the indigenous deities of Taiwan – the fixed zeal and high-beam focus are the same. Your abiding faith in the potential productivity gains of the unearthed intel is probably being tested but stay firm and keep digging. There is no better illumination for sleuthing than a Full Moon like this.
You’re marinating mugwort for a magical skin lotion or electro-magnetizing your own minerals on the kitchen counter-top, moving the jars to different compass directions in accord with the atmospheric pressure and solar winds. You’re looking forward to an epiphany regarding the Eclipse-zapped realm of your birth chart, neither striving for it nor obstructing the message. If a ritual is required, your increasingly honed instincts will alert you or a sign will appear. To you this Scorpio Moon is a handy portal into Pluto in Aquarius.
START JUPITER IN TAURUS EARLY
This is a strong tactic for the Earth signs and people with prominent Earth element placements. The Scorpio Moon Eclipse is no match for the hefty line up in Taurus – Uranus, the Sun, Mercury, Vesta and soon – mighty Jupiter. Dismissing anything “wet” and ignoring any drama without an immediate evac alert, you go big on food, sex, money and security. You’re anticipating a new creativity and commerce feel with Jupiter in Taurus and you won’t be able to pick up on it if you’re adrenal from Leo scenes or dark night of the soul scorping.
Refusing to engage in yet more Fixed sign fracas – the Saturn-Uranus square was sufficient, thank you – you’re passively resisting with some super-mutability. Ideas, commitments and feelings are fluid because that is simply how the universe works, no apology. You’ve yourself permission to pivot, fork or generate a tangent at any time, with or without contradictory rambling that you call ‘fair notice.’ It’s not only a good tactic for this Mercury Retro/Lunar Eclipse, it’s brilliant practice for Uranus in Gemini!
