Full Moons are a time for releasing and relinquishing. If you have an excess in your life, this is the time for it to go down the drain. Through silent meditation, exchanging of thoughts, or spiritual practice, Full Moons are a point when we can let go. April’s Full Moon in Scorpio is an astrological hint to reminisce about how much you've grown.

How was your eclipse, babe? I’m sure you listened to all the warnings not to stare directly at the Sun! Cosmic cuties might get their hearts broken or stumble upon questionable situations, but we do not try to defy the practicality of time and space. Everyone has limits, and we know when to stop. The Full Moon in Scorpio on 23rd April is all about listening up and being a proper observer — even a voyeur. Paying close attention is the name of the game, because what you observe can save you a lot of heartache in the long run. Lovers, there’s a lot of juicy information hidden in plain sight, and this Full Moon will illuminate it. And if you’re trying to avoid any truths or enact any behaviours you’d sooner leave in the dark, then stop right now, because you will get found out.

Remember, just because you can’t see something, doesn’t mean it’s untrue. The absence of evidence is not necessarily evidence of absence, and you know precisely what I’m talking about. When something feels "off," there’s probably some digging to do. On 23rd April, 2024, the Moon in Scorpio opposes the Sun in Taurus, forming a Full Moon and disturbing the peace. With the Sun and the Moon forming a tense square with Pluto in Aquarius, you may want to act aloof, but true transformation comes from giving a f*ck. Listen to your gut, and pay close attention to the people around you. You could be be surprised by what you find out.

Lucky you! The Full Moon in Scorpio is illuminating untapped resources and new methods of satisfying your adventurous spirit. You can fully reap the benefits of what this Full Moon has to offer by living loud and being proud. There is no room for you to hide in the shadows. The universe will reward you when you are your full self.


Have you ever daydreamed about a particular love affair, but for some reason, you hold yourself back? It’s like getting to the edge of a pool, knowing it’s cold, but also understanding that when you jump in and swim around for a while, your body will adjust to the temperature. That first jump into love is a lot like that: uncomfortable until it’s not. Maybe you need to let go of what you thought you wanted from love and welcome a new approach.


You of all people could benefit from a gentle and meaningful rest. Whenever you have the time to take a break from reading documents and travelling, this Full Moon invites you to slow down and become a hermit. Taking a break from your friends might feel less than ideal. However, your body, mind, and soul will appreciate the hours alone.


Let's keep this simple: Cancer, you need a holiday. If you hesitate because of finances, consider a 30-minute day trip somewhere relaxing. Beach days, museums, and spa days can be the escape you need. You appear to be going through a series of transformations, many of which may leave you wondering where you will end up. Soak up your excitement — toes in the sand, hand clasping the grass, or whatever fits your fancy.


Your family and home life are pulling on your heartstrings. It's understandable that you feel a sense of obligation to act for your family. But please check in with yourself to ensure you are not overextending yourself or stunting your wellness for people who need to learn how to care for themselves. Remember, you can't pour from an empty cup.


Step into your wisdom, Virgo. You must learn to recognise the difference between anxiety and intuition without hesitation. To be anxious is to feel small, powerless, and fearful. When you are aware of and respect your intuition, a sense of inexplicable knowing will radiate throughout you. Intuition is secure.


The stars tell a story of your transformation and growth, but in order for that to occur, you have to let go of who or what no longer fits in your life. As you grow, you have to become okay with bidding farewell to those who are no longer aligned with your path. Yes, saying goodbye is difficult. But making space for what you need when you refuse to let go is even more complicated.


Let go of what you think you know, Scorpio. Your sign's tarot card is Death, a card of transformation. You’re beginning a new chapter, and as a result, who you thought you were and how you imagined your life is likely fading away. You should grieve the version of yourself that is being buried. Death of any sort is sad. Beautiful transformations are in the process of occurring, so I hope you can balance happiness and grief.


You can ignore your dreams if it means getting through your day-to-day life. Yeah, this might sound ironic, coming from an astrologer. Hear me out, though: you might risk pseudo-enlightenment when your spiritual awareness is not based on reality. It’s okay to be logical and rational. In fact, for now, you should lean toward your tangible reality.


Take a good and solid break — not a five-minute break, a true and proper break. Disconnect from your acquaintances and tap into your sense of comfort. You’re overdue for a play date, which might mean hitting pause on some goals and aspirations. You don’t have to ditch the dream forever, but working too much could be doing more harm than good right now. Take time to enjoy your results.


Throwing yourself into your career is a solid way to distract yourself from complex familial issues. Surprises regarding your home life could lead to you feeling thrown off guard. Trust that everything is happening as it should, and whatever you encounter can be managed. Let go of your need to do damage control. You only have the power to manage your own response.


Talk about a brain dump! When you approach life from an over-intellectualised perspective, you may create distance between yourself and others. But when you meet people where they are and adjust how you express yourself so you can be understood, you invite connection. You’re being presented with an opportunity to confirm some of your intuitive knowledge. Listen closely and move your lips slowly.
