Welcome to the other side, Scorpio. Since this week is a Full Moon week, and also the week Mercury Retrograde ends, you may feel like you’ve completed a long marathon, and finally crossed the finish line. So many emotions will come to the surface this week, especially since the Full Moon is in Pisces, a fellow Water sign. It takes place on Wednesday, September 6, but its effects will be felt all week long. The days before the Full Moon are all about being honest with yourself about what no longer serves you. Pay attention to the way your vibration raises or falls when it comes to certain situations, thoughts or people. That alone will tell you everything you need to know.
For many Scorpios, the Full Moon is affecting our friendship, fate, true love, and domestic sectors. It’s likely that you’ve been trying to please too many people in your life, or avoiding making a decision so that you don’t hurt those you love. You may not be resonating with someone you’ve known for a while, or you may be seeking more space and independence from them. Perhaps people in your friendship or social group have toxic energy or are consuming media that you don’t relate to. This Full Moon is getting to the root of some of the subconscious influences that affect us. So you’ll have to get really deep and think about your own triggers.
You have to prioritize how you want to feel and how you deserve to live, Scorpio. So if that means cutting ties with someone you’ve known for a while, so be it. It may feel painful at first, and you’ll have time to mourn the separation, but if you’ve been thinking about it for a while, then it’s time to follow through. Now that Mercury is direct again, you’ll feel better able to communicate and express your innermost feelings, but you won’t want to do it all at once. There’s a two-week post-shadow period of Mercury Retrograde, so use that time to think about how you want to best express what’s on your mind. Remember that you don’t even have to explain yourself to anyone for the actions you take. You are free to live your life the way you best see fit.
Your ruling planet Mars entered Virgo this week, and this is helping you add more structure, stability, organization and practicality in your life. It’s a great week to spruce up your environment, clean up your home and work space, detox from social media or do an unfollowing spree, and adopt the spirit of minimalism in your life. Since Full Moons are about release, and Mars in Virgo is about getting in touch with your physical senses, look at the objects that exist in your physical environment. What’s cluttering your drawers and closets? What are you keeping stuffed under your bed or away in boxes? All of those are physical manifestation of what’s going on spiritually, mentally and emotionally. By taking time this week to clear your space and cleanse your aura, you will feel so much lighter.
Be patient with yourself and others this week, and don’t think that everything’s going to change immediately. Mars in Virgo will encourage you to take a slow and steady approach in accomplishing your goals. Romantically, Venus in Leo still puts you in the spotlight and makes you irresistible, but you’re also aware of your magnetism and you’re being selective about whom you radiate that energy towards. Just be careful to not let out the Scorpio sting whenever you feel defensive, hurt, or on edge. People’s comments and thoughts can be misinterpreted this week, because everyone’s in their own feelings due to the Full Moon. So work on processing whatever you’re feeling rather than projecting expectations unto others.
All in all, Scorpio, this is a week in which you have to step up to the plate and own what you feel emotionally. Stop shaming yourself for having darker, more complex or shadowy emotions. You may find yourself having both admiration and resentment for people. That’s normal. Which one of those emotions do you feel most consistently? Let that be the judge of whether you should take some time apart or whether you should simply let things flow on their own without dissecting what every emotion means. With this Pisces Full Moon, resist the urge to be everyone’s savior. Be your own savior, and let others help you for a change. By being vulnerable about what’s going on internally, you actually become a stronger person, and you become more sure of what it is that you feel in the first place. It will be an empowering, deeply sensitive and enlightening week, Scorpio. Trust that everything in your life is manifesting the way it’s meant to.
