Scorpio Full Moon & "Super-Moon": Intensity!
Intensity alert! This Saturday is a full moon in Scorpio, ruler of intimacy and transformation (along with wealth, sex, birth, death, taxes, reproduction … pretty much anything extreme). As if that wasn’t enough of a rush, this is a perigee moon, or supermoon — meaning the moon is incredibly close to the earth (and should be a gorgeous sight). It will be the biggest, brightest moon of the year. (For more on this, see this article.)
Scorpio is said to have three different forms or phases. Over the weekend, we may see any of these aspects emerge in ourselves. The lowest form of Scorpio is the ground-dwelling, dangerous Scorpion that stings when threatened. If you feel a surge of jealousy, vengefulness or the urge to punish someone, know that the darker energies of Scorpio have been stirred up in you.
Next up is the eagle — a wiser and more evolved version of Scorpio. The eagle can soar above its surroundings and see things from a “bird’s-eye view,” rather than reacting in a hotheaded manner. If you find you find yourself suddenly filled with wisdom and perspective, you’ve been brushed by the tail feather of the Scorpio eagle.
Last is the phoenix — the mythic bird of transformation that rises from the ashes of destruction to create something beautiful and new. The Scorpio full moon may wipe away something that no longer serves you, leaving space to create something else from the rubble. Perhaps it’s time to release a bad habit, an addiction or a toxic tie.
The stark intensity of the Scorpio supermoon may be jarring, or it could bring a moment of extreme enlightenment. It’s said that we’re all “spiritual beings having a human experience.” In some way, this full moon might help us understand that statement better.
Scorpio also rules reincarnation. We recently found a fascinating book by Anita Moorjani called “Dying to Be Me,” in which she recounts a near-death experience of clinically dying, remembering the experience, and choosing to come back. Her entire body, which was riddled with cancer, became cancer free within four days. Talk about a Scorpionic miracle. You can watch her telling her amazing story here.
