Are you ready to release the intense emotions and upsets of the past lunar cycle? Then you’re in luck because this week starts with a releasing Full Moon in the sign of Scorpio that’s all about reflection and introspection – just what we need to kickstart a new, enthusiastic lunar cycle.

The week begins on an intense note, with a Full Moon on April 26th that brings the intensity and transformation of Scorpio. Ruled by Pluto, Scorpio urges you to look inward and see what hidden emotions or secrets you discover within yourself.

This Full Moon provides the perfect opportunity to let go of any grudges you may have been holding onto, making room for new, exciting experiences and more magic in your life!

On April 27th, Scorpio’s ruling planet, Pluto, goes retrograde.

This planet is associated with the process of rebirth, and when it goes retrograde, you may feel like a certain part of yourself is being stripped away or dissolved. Just remember that what remains is healing, love, and light.

Another exciting transit this week occurs on April 30th, when the Taurus Sun is conjunct Uranus in Taurus. This transit signals a time of change, excitement, and freedom. This is a time to break away from routine and try new things that engage your sense of childlike enthusiasm.

April 26 – May 2 is a Week to Release Yourself From Old Habits & Emotions

This Full Moon in Scorpio is all about introspection, discovery, and release. It’s time to take a deep dive into your psyche, see what you discover, and find a way to let certain things go.

Don’t hold onto old pains or past upsets, as they only serve to slow you down on your path towards happiness and success.

Let your body, heart, and mind be free of anything that’s been holding you back.

It’s time to drop the weight of these issues that rest heavy on your heart and allow yourself to roam the world free of those burdens. Your spirit deserves its chance to shine right now.

If you’re not sure where to start your journey of release, a personalized astrological reading can give you the guidance you seek.
