The full moon in Scorpio on April 30th will sextile Saturn in Capricorn, which gives this lunation a pleasant, positive feeling of stability.
While full moons are known for heightening emotions, the connection with taskmaster Saturn brings us down to earth and grounds our emotional realizations in a commitment to changing the practical matter of our lives. Because these two are linking together in a friendly way, emotional situations that come up now will leave us feeling responsible to address them – but we’ll also be feeling empowered and capable, in ways we haven’t felt whenever we’ve previously approached these problems.
Here is a super, super simplified chart, just so you can get your bearings around what the main aspects look like. The sun is opposite the moon. The moon is making a friendly sextile of 60 degrees to Saturn. Saturn is making a friendly trine of 120 degrees to the Sun. Everybody else is doing other stuff, but it’s not super relevant to what we’re looking at, so it’s not visualized.
The abrupt illumination of a full moon plays nicely with Scorpio’s penchant for darkness and secrecy. If we haven’t been honest with ourselves about what’s not going well, or ways in which we could use the help of others, this full moon is urging us to reach out.
Jupiter has also been in Scorpio this year, so a lot of the subject matter that comes up for our attention this month is thematic around the whole year. Aside from major lunations like eclipses, full moons like these are the most useful for punctuating the “lessons learned” from longer-term transits.
Your horoscopes here touch mainly on the long-term journey that Saturn is making through Capricorn, and how that influences you with regards to developments you can expect from the full moon this month. Lunations can “come into effect” slightly early and hang around for quite some time, so if I’ve highlighted a “big event,” it may have just happened at the end of April or it could happen throughout May. Regardless, it will be “on your mind” around this time anyway.
