Full Moon in Scorpio: Positive AF

full moon in scorpio

Transformative. Truth. Sensuality. Sexuality. Mystical. Just a few words to describe the auspicious full moon happening at 20 degrees of Scorpio on May 10th at 5:42 pm ET.

When the moon is full, its strong gravitational pull on the Earth makes for a time of peak creative energy and incredibly powerful intuitive breakthroughs. Full moons are the ultimate moment to embody the Divine Feminine.

And of all of the full moons in 2017, this full moon in Scorpio brings forth some of the most potent, powerful, and positive aspects—you don’t want to miss the opportunity to fill up on breakthrough energy from the goddess La Luna herself.

Tonight we can expect to feel the grounded capacities of earth signs just as much as we can expect the deep tenacious waters of Scorpio to speak to us. Powerhouse Pluto (Scorpio’s ruler) is in Capricorn, making a glorious angle to the Sun in satisfied and satiated Taurus. This divine connection empowers and emboldens our capacities to see and feel our deepest essence as the creators of our lives.

Further, when we look at Mars, the other ruling planet of Scorpio, we see another powerful and potent influence to take into consideration under tonight’s full moon. As mentioned above, Pluto is in a supportive angle, helping us magnify the transformational capacities this particular full moon holds for us. And Mars, in Gemini, also forms a positive angle known as a trine to Jupiter—the giver of good luck and abundance. This fortunate connection signifies breakthrough success aligning in auspicious ways.


But that’s not all. Mercury, now out of retrograde, snuggling close with Uranus, the planet of breakthrough and revolution, in fire sign Aries wants us to receive out-of-the-box intuitive downloads. Whatever comes through has the ability to stand the test of time, as both of these planets trine Saturn, the planet that rules time.


If that were not enough, Saturn, Mercury, and Uranus form a grand trine (a trifecta of support) with the North Node now in Leo.

What’s the North Node of Fate and Why Does it Matter?

At the time of this full moon, the Nodes of Fate will have just moved from Virgo-Pisces into the Leo-Aquarius axis, shifting our focus from service (Virgo) and spirituality (Pisces) to leadership (Leo) and innovation (Aquarius).

The North Node, part of the Nodal Axis, represents a point in the sky between the Sun, Moon and Earth, where the moon’s orbit converges with the Sun’s path. The North Node, representing where to focus to achieve our highest destiny, is in Leo, so it’s safe to say bold, self-assured courage leads us forward (hopefully) in progressive directions.

This full moon in Scorpio offers a luscious grand trine highlighting the North Node in Leo, signifying it’s time to step up and out—massively. It’s essential to wake up our inner strength and align with the highest version of Leo/Aquarius: heart-centered, joyous, and community-driven ideals.

All of this occurring in sync with the Sun waxing towards the upcoming solstice suggests the necessity of building in the direction of our bigger desires.

To capitalize on this full moon’s abundant positivity, I suggest a simple full moon ritual.

A Full Moon In Scorpio Ritual

  1. Take your new moon intentions a level deeper. Why did you make these intentions? What core mission in your life do they serve? Dig deep to unleash that inner motivation that fuels your achievement.
  2. Let go of what’s no longer serving you. Full moons initiate the waning phase of the moon, a time of release. You’ve identified your highest purpose. Now it’s time to evaluate and make the necessary changes to get back into sync with your ideals.
  3. Spend time outdoors under the moonlight. Moonlight is just as vital to women’s health as sunlight. It helps regulate the pituitary gland, which controls many of your body’s glands and hormones. Let the moonlight permeate your body, penetrate your soul, and evoke your truth within. Let it connect you to your own embodied power.
  4. Celebrate and express gratitude. The full moon is the peak moment of the month. It is a time of completion, so acknowledge all that you have achieved and be thankful for the energy that you have let in.
  5. Have an orgasm. Whether you engage a partner or not, don’t miss out on the potential of a moongasm, an orgasm happening in sync with the sexual and sultry powers of Scorpio. Orgasms are powerful health tools that release oxytocin and balance our hormones. They will help you relax and open even more deeply to the voice of your soul and intuitive knowing.

    Hi Jenn,
    Just took a walk around the block and I’m so glad I did. I forget how being outside and looking up just immediately calms me and allows me to feel the might of the universe. Thank you for reminding me.

  • dawn

    hi jennifer!
    this full moon is almost exact my sun / n node! ( they are conjunct…21scorp )
    is this mega extra special significant for me?

    • jracioppi

      Yes, Dawn, there’s definitely significance here. The north node is about your deeper soul’s calling/higher purpose. I’d spend time tonight connecting to it and feeling into what messages, downloads, and feelings need to be acknowledged as they relate to you deeper exploration of purpose this lifetime. Keep us posted, and thank you so much for reading, commenting and sharing! All of my love.

    I have always loved the moon and felt a connection to her. She is so beautiful! I don’t even know how I found your website but I am so glad I did. It has given me a whole new understanding and appreciation for the moon. Thank you so much for sharing your wisdom with me. I love love love reading your posts! I have zero knowledge of or experience with astrology and I think you’re the perfect place to start.

    • jracioppi

      Terra, This comment brings a tear to my eye. Thank you so much for sharing this. I am so grateful you made your way to my website. With a deeply open heart, welcome to Lunar Logic + Chart Your Success! I so appreciate you. Big hugs, Jenn

  • Effie

    Wow, wow, wow. I was gifted your name, Jennifer, at the last new moon and am so glad I found you. I’ve also seen so many synchronistic messages about manifesting through orgasm lately! Yes to the sacral chakra and the divine feminine! Thank you for your guidance!

    • jracioppi

      Effie! My pleasure. Yes, manifestation through orgasm is a powerful tool. I highly suggest playing with it (pun intended). Enjoy the sacral chakra and the divine feminine! Keep us posted on how things unfold.

      All of my love,


  • Emily

    I started following you on IG. I like your emails and posts. I didn’t want to leave my house todsy but forced myself to go out. I feel like my patience is being tested constantly too. Anything to do with the full moon? I appreciate the full moon ritual suggestion too.

    • jracioppi

      Hey Emily, Now that the full moon passed, how are you feeling? A Scorpio full moon can feel emotional. Did you feel emotional or simply lethargic?

      I think it’s important to keep track of you are doing for multiple months on full moons to see how you feel at that time. I personally do way better emotionally and energetically at the new moon… It’d be interesting to see how you do different times of the month; see if there are any themes. Keeping track of how you feel at different lunar moments is essential!

      Let us know how you are!

      Big hugs and so much love,


  • Leila

    I am a firey Aries who has recently made a love connection with a hot Scorpio. Although we are in the beginning of what I believe can grow into something awesome, what does this really mean for us at such a magnetic time? I’ve also experienced a couple of significant transitions all within the last three months. From taking on a new job with a significant raise, discontinuing an unhealthy relationship, to moving into a new place…All have been good transitions despite the tireless effort that they all took during the process. With that being said, any advise on how I can be active with such a pivotal moment to rep as much positive energy as possible? I want to be unstoppable, confident in my decisions, fearless about my visions and dreams, and remain balanced and anchored all at the same time. Thoughts? Lol!

    • jracioppi

      Hey Leila! Thanks for writing to us and letting us know how you are. Wow! What a fabulous ride you are on! 🙂 Isn’t it amazing what comes through when we let go of things that do not serve us. I would take this sentence and turn it into an affirmation:

      “I want to be unstoppable, confident in my decisions, fearless about my visions and dreams, and remain balanced and anchored all at the same time.”

      So working with this statement: I am unstoppable, confident in my decision, fearless about my visions and dreams and totally balanced and anchored.

      Let that be your intention and something you say multiple times, daily, until you experience it as your default truth!

      Keep us posted!

      All of my love,


  • Annelise

    • jracioppi

      Hey Annelise, Yes, it’s a powerful full moon:) I am thankful to you for reading and writing in. Please keep us posted on things unfold for you.

      Big hugs!

  • anonymous

    I’m a scorpio who has always felt better in the afternoons/after night fall: the moon feels like a friend. Am so ready for grounded abundance and living in a soul centered way. Here’s to positive change.

  • Emily

    Thank you for the feedback! I will try to keep better track. More lethargic than anything.
