The Scorpio Full Moon Exposes Secrets— Can You Let Your Guard Down?

Intensity ramps up as the year’s only Scorpio full moon slinks across the skies on April 23, 2024 (at 7:49 PM EDT). With la luna shining her high beams into this mysterious sector, secrets may be revealed. Here’s what’s in store for you and your relationships.

To conceal or reveal? That is the question—and the paradox—of the Scorpio full moon. This esoteric zodiac sign isn’t exactly comfortable being exposed by the full moon’s bright light. But it’s going to be hard to keep data on the DL during the Scorpio full moon on April 23. (And it doesn’t help that Mercury is retrograde in Aries until April 25!)

Should you let down your guard and be vulnerable with people at the Scorpio full moon?

If they’ve earned your trust, this could be the perfect moment to nudge intimacy to a deeper level. Bare your soul and cement a crucial bond.

If you feel secure in a relationship but you’re still getting to know each other, don’t overshare or pressure the other person to reveal more than they’re comfortable with. Give it time.

If you’re flying solo, channel Scorpio’s inquisitive nature and do a deep dive into any potential partners before exploring uncharted waters together.

If you’ve been waffling about the future state of your union, the Scorpio full moon demands an answer: Are you in or are you out? Nothing short of a rock-solid commitment will do. Forget staying involved out of a sense of obligation.

And remember: Scorpio energy always builds intrigue. Be mindful not to misinterpret someone’s distancing as a signal they’re not interested. It could be quite the opposite! The hardest thing to do may be restraining your urge to pursue, but a little mystery goes a long way now.

Bedroom boredom goes bye-bye at the Scorpio full moon 

An erotic connection that’s been bubbling since the Scorpio new moon (in November 2023) could explode into a bodice-ripping embrace. Invite more sultry fun and games into your playtime at the Scorpio full moon.

But prepare to greet your own shadow

As the sign of extremes, Scorpio energy can draw out both our darkest shadows and our most enlightened selves. The April 2024 Scorpio full moon could bring some eye-opening awakenings for anyone who’s been refusing to deal with a lingering conflict.

This transformational full moon can support deep processing and healing, if that’s what is needed. Turmoil is temporary, and might be necessary in order to fix problems instead of slapping on Band-Aids. Consult a professional if you need an assist. The Scorpio full moon makes a case for not keeping your issues in Drafts. That said, timing is everything, so respect the confidentiality and privacy of everyone involved. There couldn’t be a worse time than this for outing someone.

Gemini (May 20-June 20)
