The most relevant Sabian Symbol for the impending Scorpio full Moon is the following:
“A great conqueror looks up at the crumbling Sphinx, backdropped by the bright stars of the Egyptian sky.”
Death is the ultimate “taboo” subject. If you ask anyone if they expect to live forever, or if they expect anything to last forever, they’ll say “no.” But that thought is rarely at the forefront of our mind. Except when Scorpio predominates. Then it might be.
A sense of meaninglessness is what we’re trying to avoid. We might sense or fear that an essential part of who we are is being obliterated.
This week is prime time to ask the question “what do I want my life to mean and what should I be doing now?” When all is said and done what is the essence of what I want to leave behind.
Under every full Moon we come to an end point, a point of clarification, or a culmination where pushing further in the same direction begins to result in diminishing returns. We recognize an area of imbalance and do what needs to be done to correct it.
In this full Moon chart Mars is revealed to be unaspected in the sign of Cancer. This is unusual and significant. It makes Mars – the ruler of the Scorpio Moon – a virtual wild card, prone to extremes, while escaping anything that would resemble a moderating influence. Left to his own devices Mars is likely act impulsively, to over-estimate his power, and to get into trouble.
On the other hand an un-aspected Mars in Cancer represents the purest possible expression of protecting what’s vulnerable. He is the genuinely courageous warrior with no doubt as to what he’s been tasked to accomplish. He’s singularly focused in ways that could unleash a cascade of events, once set in motion, can no longer be controlled by “the powers that be.”
The other distinguishing aspect of this Scorpio full chart is Saturn’s placement on the Jupiter/Pluto midpoint. This could bring to light an inhibition in one’s development – the inability to progress further, or some difficulty related to the fear of breaking through resistance.
Saturn in Aquarius puts authority in the hands of the community or within the group. De-centralization is emphasized. On a personal note it might be time to courageously embrace the prospect of distinguishing yourself as an outsider, activist, or cultural agitator. It might be time to clarify what the “masterwork of your life” will be.
Saturn is beautifully placed in a position that supports your most promising direction giving you the opportunity to release what’s become an increasingly ineffective or repetitive influence.
