A Dark Taurus / Scorpio Full Moon

This is a very ‘dark’ and potent Scorpio Full Moon because it is occurring while both rulers of the sign, war god Mars and death god Pluto are joined together, and Pluto is stationary, hence enhancing it’s power. Pluto is the dark Lord of the Underworld, wherein lie unresolved complexes that sabotage the attainment of the Sunlit Taurean virtues of calm and serenity. What price inner peace? Karmic Time Lord Saturn, dignified in it’s home sign Capricorn, and aligning harmoniously with both Sun and Moon at peak amplitude, is standing guard to ensure that karmic debts to self and other are repaid in a timely manner, and that cosmic justice prevails, that we reap what we have sown.

Pluto Amplified
