This Full Moon is a powerful transformative lunation that demands honesty, facing of fears and deep change. What do you want in life? Now is the time to peel away the layers that obscure what you desire.

This Full Moon in Scorpio is the signal to see things as they truly are, not as you wish them to be.

Case study: Two years ago a male client of mine was living in a fantasy world, pining resentfully over a woman he liked, who I will call “Abigail”. They had a fun and casual acquaintanceship in group social settings but never a romantic relationship. She moved away for work purposes and he spent several months pining over a fantasy of what they could have been in his mind. He deluded himself into thinking she had abandoned him and their great love relationship. All the while he ignored the women he was dating. He held tightly to the fantasy relationship he had in his mind of “Abigail”. Because of this, he denied himself a relationship in which he could have a healthy and stable emotional and sexual expression. Fortunately, after nearly a year he finally awakened from his nightmare of denial by admitting there never was and never would be a relationship between him and “Abigail”. He opened his eyes to a woman near him, got to know her and eventually married.

What can you do to take full advantage of this lunation from April 20 until the New Moon on May 5?

It is a time to release the past – people, situations and ways of behaving – and open yourself to a new level of compassion, love, possibilities, open-mindedness and spiritual growth.

It is a time for healing of deep wounds that have intense feelings attached to them, as they are only serving to hurt you and prevent you from moving forward into the future.

Chiron in Aquarius, Neptune in Aquarius and Uranus in Pisces make this a particularly spiritually invigorating New Moon in Scorpio for awakening from the death-like trance of victim and into the powerful stance of the healer (who is also ready and able to heal others who have suffered the same wounding).

Name your fear – and thereby destroy its power over you.

Share the joy and pain of self-disclosure with someone who has been telling you they want to know YOU for who you really are, in all your imperfections. Stop living in denial and lies (whether direct or through omission). Be honest and find yourself making a human connection that could last a lifetime.

Deal with trust issues – especially if there is a secret that you know has been keeping you and another individual from being as close as you could be. It may feel like destruction at first but after the destruction comes the time of healing and rebuilding in relationships. From there you can expect growth, unconditional love and openness that leads to a more solid relationship, one that could endure for eternity.
