Full Moon in Scorpio Secrets: Deep Emotional Waters Surge

Posted on April 24, 2018

April 30 brings a full moon in the watery sign of Scorpio. Two days before and two days after, we can expect the crazy to come out in those who live unaware of the astrological dance and its powerful effects. This full moon will most definitely heighten sexual feelings as Scorpio always does, so be wary of people’s hidden agendas.

What’s the bright side? The changes we began with the eclipse season in January will begin to mature now and what we started on the new moon April 15 may come about as well because the shadow of Mercury retrograde is over.

If the last paragraph sounded like Greek to you, don’t worry, you’re not the only one. Astrology is a language requiring interpreters and that’s what I’m here to help you with. I want it to be helpful as well as simple, so your life is easier and improved.

Let’s break down this full moon so you know what to expect and how to use the energy. The moon cycles each month can help us achieve our goals and manifest. I guarantee it’s worth learning about!

The Nature of a Full Moon

A full moon will bring about change for everyone, whether they are ready or not. The moon is the closest celestial body to us and it has the strongest effect on our body, mind and spirit. We are 65% water, which interacts with our blood vessels and nervous system.

Generally, people feel confident, ready to take risks, or finally make decisions, but sometimes they are overconfident or let the energy that’s been bottled up come out like releasing a pressure gauge which makes them lose their cool.

Don’t take what someone does or says on a full moon too seriously because they are likely letting go of emotions that have been pushed down - which can look like a bad temper.

We will usually receive what we’ve been visualizing and working towards in the full moon time. It’s amazing to see how everything tends to show up at once. What have you been focused on since April 15? Watch as people announce awards, promotions, new jobs, relationship status changes, moves and significant positive changes.

We probably haven’t seen things move forward because Mercury was retrograde and now the post shadow period is gone, so those things you’ve been really working towards are even more likely to show up.

How A Sign Makes Each Moon Unique

You read above that we have a full moon in ‘the watery sign of Scorpio.’ What does that mean? Each sign has an element which helps us understand how it affects our behaviors and thoughts. Scorpio is linked to water, meaning we can feel the emotions of others and more strongly feel our own emotions.

Scorpio traits include digging deep to see the dark sides of ourselves and others because Scorpio wants to understand why and how people think. On this full moon, as I said, people will also display the sexual nature of Scorpio. Many women report that multiple men ask them out on a full moon. Well, a full moon in Scorpio will make them extra determined!

Each month the full moon is in a different sign, highlighting a different part of our life and our minds. It’s helpful to know when the full moon is and what sign it’s in to know how people will be acting as well as to manage your own expectations of yourself or what part of your life is likely to see changes.


I’m expecting an intense full moon because we also have Saturn and Pluto retrograde. Pluto helps us see into our unconscious and Saturn is the karma planet which brings the energy we have put out back to us.

People may be acting loony from this lunation if they haven’t been regularly taking responsibility for their words and actions, so it’s best to be with your spiritual tribe or off the radar to dodge their emotional swings. That’s why it’s common for people to throw punches at bars on a full moon; they’re facing their own shadows in their environment.

Don’t ever be afraid of a full moon. It’s a time to be excited, to see magic in action and to let go of what’s holding you back. We stay prepared to be extra calm and weather the storm. It allows us to see the stale habits, outdated thoughts and routines that aren’t serving our highest good.

It’s a time when, if we pay attention, we see the dance of the universe play out in our lives and we see the interconnectedness of all things. It’s a time to rejoice in our soul and reap the rewards for our hard work and time spent in meditation sending our intentions out to the universe.

Using the moon cycles to start your projects will save you time and energy. I’ve followed these cycles for years and begin my ‘quest’ on each new moon which takes 2.5 weeks. Often, things I am visualizing show up and sometimes it takes time for me to see where I’m blocking it, but it always comes.

Every time I propose a book to a publisher, the response comes around the full moon just like clockwork. I watch as my friends get their jobs on the full moons and people move houses, go on a date or finally get their dream jobs! Use tools like a journal and vision board to track your goals each month and visualize, visualize, visualize!

Your focus has power and your words create narratives and truths whether you’re aware of it or not.
