Full Moon in Scorpio: An Emotional Release

Full moons are about completion and seeing evidence of the seeds planted during the previous new moon. Did you journal about what you want to manifest around the most recent new moon? If so, check in on those things to see what progress has been made.

This month, the full moon enters Scorpio on May 18, 2019 at 5:11 p.m. EST. Scorpio has us in our emotions, and the full moon is a time of culmination and release. That combination might have your emotions spilling over rather than being kept in check as they otherwise would be.

So what does that mean on a practical level?

  • You may find yourself taken off-guard by the depth of your feelings about something.
  • An unexpected declaration of love or a surprising realization about how much someone means to you would not be out of the ordinary under these circumstances.
  • With the Sun in stubborn, routine-loving Taurus, you may notice an inner conflict between the desire to maintain the status quo and the desire to plunge beneath the surface to see what might lie beneath.
  • Don’t be surprised if you feel a desire to speak a truth that would shake things up a bit and break you out of your typical day-to-day.

If you’re making weekend plans, it’s probably not a good idea to stuff it with activity. Rather, this is a weekend of reflection so give yourself time and space to experience and process the emotions that might be stirred up.
