Full Moon in Scorpio & Pluto Retrograde

Full Moon Forecast

April’s Pink Full Super Moon is almost here! I can feel the build up in the air, can you? The Full Moon in Scorpio will official be on Monday, April 26th at 11:32pm EST. This will be the first super moon of 2021. A super full moon is closer to the earth and appears brighter and closer. It causes earth’s tides, energy, and power even more profound than usual. The potency of magic on a super moon will be amplified.

A full moon in Scorpio is a lot like the personality of the astrological sign. If you know a Scorpio, you know about the secretive, intense vibe they give off. A full fledged Scorpio has no time for small talk and their penetrating gaze will have you divulging childhood traumas without even knowing how you got there.

As the full moon of Scorpio, you can expect much intensity. This is great time for clearing out emotional baggage. This will require a bit of planning, but the release is going to feel so good. In Scorpio, the truth of what needs to be cleared is most likely buried deep within you. So get real with what you need to clear out.

A Full Scorpio Moon increases awareness in psychic powers. It also calls us to release those we don’t need. We pick up energies all around us, and some are just not necessary of for our growth. The Scorpio Full Moon is an ideal time to clear away those energies that are not serving us.

This Full Moon will bring many of the aspects of the Water sign, Scorpio, into our conscious awareness. A zodiac sign tied to transformation, rebirth, and sexuality, Scorpio is ruled by Mars and Pluto.

Pluto in Retrograde

Pluto is set to go into retrograde the day after the full moon, on April 27th. Pluto is an intense little planet with themes in our deepest selves, psychology, transformation, and the subconscious. This retrograde is taking place in Capricorn so it’s going to feel intense. It is going to go way back and bring to light past traumas. We’ll be dealing with matters involving karma, structure, and stability—both on personal and collective levels.

Scorpio Full Moon Magic

As Scorpio is a water sign, using water in your magic is going to make an even bigger impact. Here are some ideas:

  • Hydrate your body.
  • Take a ritual cleansing bath.
  • Water your plants.
  • Make Moon water.

Any full moon is good time for charging your magical tools. Place your crystals and alter tools outside or in the window where the moon’s light can reach them at some point during the night, (even if it is too cloudy, this will still charge them).

Journal about the elements you want to release from your life. Rewrite your past as if you are talking to your inner child, use words of encouragement and look for the positive in your past. Journaling is a great way to sift through your psyche. Don’t be hard on yourself, the past is gone. Use a journal prompt to dive deep into what you need to let go of.

  • What is something that you have never told anyone before?
  • Write a letter to your younger self.
  • Write a letter to your body.
  • How will you describe yourself to a complete stranger?
  • What worries you the most currently?
  • What keeps you awake at night?
