Horoscopes for the Full Moon in Scorpio April 30th 2018

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.

THECHART

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.

JUPITER IN SCORPIO sextile PLUTO IN CAPRICORN

This month, and throughout this year, two of the darkest, yet most powerful outer planet placements slid into a fluid relationship called a sextile. Their influence on each other has the potential to pull out the most frightening qualities of each – sheer intensity – but, because of their alliance and receptivity, their most empowering features will shine through.

Jupiter in Scorpio has already demanded strength, honesty, and vulnerability from the parts of us that are most dark, most secret, that cause us to feel the most shame. These parts are the same ones that cause us to lie and cover up parts of ourselves – but we are being asked to observe why. We lie and we hide and we cover up what we really are when we have been made to feel shame, when we have been taught to question ourselves, when we have been told we cannot give straight and clear vision to what really happened, when we have been told we do not know who we are or what we’re saying or doing.

Scorpio as a sign has a reputation for being dishonest. This is an unfair condemnation of the imaginative powers required by those who, restricted by circumstance, must creatively find ways to assert their right to privacy, to live in their power without commanding attention. Scorpio as a sign has a reputation for being negative. The person who gives voice to mundane evils hiding as white noise is often identified as the one who “started it.” When the cogs of functionality require compartmentalized illusions to keep everyone saying they’re feeling fine, that they’re okay with this, telling the truth is the same thing as disrupting the peace.
