Scorpio season starts October 23. Scorpio is a fixed water sign. The energy of Scorpio can be described as intense, transformative, mysterious, vindictive and charismatic. ⁠

Strengths of Scorpio include resilience and astuteness. Weaknesses can be self-criticism and being controlling. They like mystery and revenge. They don't like to change. Good careers for Scorpios include being a detective, something in research or a psychologist. ⁠

Astrologer Robert Hand says, "Any planet in Scorpio is likely to become an agent for the individual's transformation. Planets in Scorpio operate with intensity, usually emotionally intensity". ⁠

Full Moon in Scorpio - May 18, 2019

The Full Moon will be in Scorpio on May 18th at 5:11 EDT. Scorpio is intense, emotional, and can be seen as fearless. I asked the tarot, what should you take action with even if you're scared. I pulled the King of Swords Rx. This is the same card I pulled for the New Moon in Taurus for May 4th!

During this Full Moon, the King of Swords Rx is asking you to speak your truth. It doesn't have to be in a powerful way. It can be subtle. Don't hide behind what the group wants. What do you want? Express it. The Sun in Taurus with a conjunction to Mercury, also says this is a critical time to communicate. Since the Moon is in secretive Scorpio, one should be reminded to keep secrets secret. Now is not the time to tell everything.

What do you need to express to someone? What have you been holding on to? Now is time to communicate your needs.
