The sun, nearing the halfway point in its journey through the intense and probing sign of Scorpio, has had Venus as its travel companion, and the two have been getting down to business in the area of intimate relationships and partnerships of all kinds. The illuminations that have been occurring in these areas have begun to set many people free from limiting choice patterns and self-perceptions, and guiding us to profound new levels of understanding. If you've found yourself facing dark elements of yourself or your past since the Partial Solar Eclipse in Scorpio, this full moon signals an ending of the most immediate intense energies that have been at work post-eclipses (eclipse energies and themes continue to work in our lives for up to six months afterwards, but the most tumultuous or painful parts are likely to come to an end soon).
Venus is making her way closer to Saturn as he wraps up his time in Scorpio. When the Goddess of Love joins the strict master teacher of the zodiac, expect lessons in love or money (especially shared resources), accountability, and renewed commitments or endings in the way of relationships. Romance takes on a serious psychological tone and brings with it an intense need to interact deeply and transcend the self through connecting with others.
When the moon reaches the culmination of her monthly cycle in Taurus, the primary needs will center on self-love and care by way of the body and physical security. With our emotional attention being drawn to all things sensual, it's the perfect time to indulge in a massage, a great meal, or extra bonding time with a partner. It's also a time where any of our physical needs, as well as our most basic needs for self-love, care, and security, will be highlighted. Anything that nourishes the senses will foster feelings of contentment and stability now!
Some key questions for contemplation might be:
- Is my current lifestyle honoring my body's needs? Would I benefit from adjustments in the way of diet, exercise, and sleep? Is my body asking for more gentleness and nurturance, and if so, how can I integrate more of this into my life?
- Do I look after my own needs first in a relationship? If not, how can I honor my needs while in relationship to bring forward more balance?
- Am I in relationships that have reached their finality? Can I call on the courage to release them in order to align my life more with my needs and desires?
- Do I use my resources (such as time and money) wisely? How can I draw in more abundance or set reasonable parameters to ensure greater stability in my life?
