Do Not Avoid Your Darkness; Embrace It

In life, it can be easy to fall for the idea that darkness is something you should hide. Avoiding emotion and pretending everything is fine is how many people get through life.

Under this full moon, the darkness that you'd rather avoid will not be easily silenced. And why should it be? Listen to what your darkness has to say. It's full of wisdom. It contains all the answers that you've been searching for.

If you're uncomfortable, speak up. If you don't like where something is going, do not go there. Your "bad" emotions often hold the key to your survival, to the preservation of your energy. Let this full moon bring you closer to your own truth, so that you may walk the path you were meant to walk.

Let Your Intuition Tell You Who To Trust

As with your darkness, your intuition often gets clouded by the mechanics of your mind. Your gut may be telling you something completely different than your head, leaving you confused and unsure of what to do. Under this full moon, you have all the planetary power to align your mind, body, and soul. Reflecting energy from the sun in Taurus, a Scorpio's opposite sign, you will be able to see all the kinks in your life that need smoothing out. When two opposite signs come together, they become harmonious. You'll feel this harmony stretching across you.

Use this harmony to make decisions for your life, for you'll be seeing everything clearly. The nameless pains and cloudy confusions will come into focus, giving you the power to remove toxic forces from your life and change your behavior for the better.

Commit To Healing Yourself

Under this full moon, the negativity that normally weighs you down will float to the surface. Unhappiness often feels blurry and sourceless, but through the lens of Scorpio, you will understand the specific nature of your own unhappiness. Since this full moon will sextile Saturn, planet of discipline, barriers, and hard work, you can take charge of your existence and make lasting improvements to your state of being.

Make decisions that reflect your character and commit to healing practices that bring you closer to your best self. Saturn is a motivating force.
