Full Moon in Scorpio Ritual ~ April 2024

Time to embrace change, confront fears, and shed light on the shadows within in order to pave the way for profound personal growth and transformation

This Pink Full Moon in Scorpio arrives early on Wednesday the 24th April, reaching its fullest point at 9:48am AEST for those of us in QLD, Australia, which means the ideal time to do your Full Moon ritual is the evening prior on Tuesday 23rd, but don't stress if that doesn't work for you as the Full Moon energy hangs around for about 3 days either side of the peak full moon time.

For a great in depth look at the cosmic energies at play throughout March head to Moon Omens and/or Forever Conscious or just read on for a summary below before beginning the ritual.

Falling in the Water sign of Scorpio, this Moon is known as the Pink Moon. The name is not a reference to the colour of the Moon at this time, rather it refers to the surrounding seasonal events. The name is derived from colonial American and some native American sources, that named this event for the bright pink flowers that came into bloom at roughly the same time as the Moon was full.

Transitioning into Taurus Season 2024:

Building Foundations, Embracing Change, and Manifesting Visions

As the Sun bid farewell to Aries and stepped into Taurus on April 19 a new season began, ushering in a period of grounding and stability amidst recent changes. Taurus season encourages us to slow down, prioritise grounding, and integrate the transformations experienced during the recent Eclipse season.

For those with placements in Fixed signs like Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius, this shift holds particular significance. It offers opportunities to deepen connections with our bodies, realign with abundance, and lay sturdy foundations for growth.

Taurus, with its Earthy and Fixed nature, prompts us to attract rather than chase, emphasising the importance of stability and self-reliance. This season invites us to explore our relationship with abundance, prosperity, and receptivity.

However, the Jupiter-Uranus conjunction during Taurus season injects a sense of restlessness and vision into the mix, challenging us to balance stability with growth and innovation. This conjunction could spur unexpected changes in global economies and push us to rethink our systems and values.

While Eclipse season technically persists, Taurus season offers a chance for closure, with the upcoming New Moon marking the end of this portal. The Full Moon in Scorpio is urging us to confront our resistance to change and dive deep into our subconscious motivations and then looking further ahead to the New Moon in Taurus on May 7, aligned with Jupiter and Uranus, we're prompted to deconstruct and rebuild our reality. Taurus season encourages us to reconnect with nature, indulge our senses, and savour life's simple pleasures, reminding us that steady progress and commitment are key, even as we embrace change.

Embrace Change and Manifest Your Visions: The Impact of Jupiter-Uranus Conjunction

On April 20th, an electrifying celestial event occurred as Jupiter and Uranus perfectly aligned in Taurus, marking a pivotal moment for collective growth and revolutionary change. This conjunction at 21º49’ of Taurus urges us to invest in our visions and perceive reality through fresh eyes while staying grounded amidst rapid expansion.

This dynamic energy, felt for weeks and continuing, particularly impacts individuals with planets around 21º of Fixed signs, offering personal shifts in consciousness, new insights, and unexpected growth opportunities.

The conjunction signifies the beginning of a 14-year cycle, promising tangible shifts in financial systems, socio-economic structures, and values. Jupiter's influence magnifies our pursuit of abundance in Taurus, urging us to renew beliefs about wealth and self-worth.

Meanwhile, Uranus, the Great Awakener, disrupts norms and fosters radical shifts in collective values and structures. This cosmic dance challenges us to harmonise stability with change, finding comfort in uncertainty. Staying grounded becomes crucial amidst heightened energies, ensuring we navigate growth with resilience and awareness.

Jupiter and Uranus, projected towards the future, now converge in Taurus, bridging earthly wisdom with higher realms. This alignment invites us to manifest our visions in tangible ways, emphasising the power of present choices in shaping our future.

Collectively, this conjunction heralds transformative shifts in economy, markets, and societal systems, urging liberation from limiting beliefs and alignment with true values. Natural events may prompt reflections on our relationship with nature and resource management.

Ultimately, the Jupiter-Uranus alignment encourages authenticity, urging us to honour our uniqueness, invest in our visions, and embark on a journey of self-discovery and alignment with our true selves.

Unlocking the Depths: Navigating the Scorpio Full Moon

The Full Moon on April 23 heralds an emotionally charged phase, urging us to delve into the depths of our being. Nestled in the intense sign of Scorpio, this lunation beckons us to confront our resistance to change, confront our fears, and unearth hidden desires lurking in the shadows.

Those closely aligned with 4º of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius will feel the lunar energy more profoundly, offering a chance for deep introspection and heightened emotional clarity. This Full Moon illuminates our emotional landscape, inviting us to confront inner demons, embrace intimacy, and unearth buried desires.

Embracing Complexity and Intensity

Full Moons signify the peak of the lunar cycle, shedding light on the journey begun with the New Moon. Positioned across the Taurus-Scorpio axis, this lunation spotlights themes of stability versus transformation, materialism versus evolution, and self-reliance versus interdependence.

In the midst of Taurus season's focus on simplicity and comfort, the Scorpio Full Moon draws attention to relationships, finances, and power dynamics. It challenges us to navigate complexity and emotional intensity with radical honesty, unveiling hidden truths and revealing subconscious motivations.

Transforming Patterns and Illuminating Shadows

Aligned in a tight square with Pluto, the modern ruler of Scorpio, this Full Moon intensifies emotional exploration and psychological transformation. Pluto's penetrating energy delves into our deepest fears and desires, urging us to confront ingrained patterns and defence mechanisms.

As we navigate this intense energy, we're called to recognise and transform habitual coping strategies rooted in childhood experiences. The somatic experience emphasised by the Sun in Taurus underscores the need to move and release emotional energy stored within the body.

Learning to Let Go When it’s Time

With a planetary configuration activating three of the four Fixed signs, there's a tendency to cling to control and resist surrender. However, this Full Moon encourages us to trust in the natural cycles of release and renewal, reminding us that letting go is essential for growth.

Amidst this intensity, cultivating joy and authenticity will allow us to navigate change with grace and openness.

Releasing Untrue Desires and Feeling Old Pain

The conjunction of Mars and Neptune in Pisces signals a time of closure and surrender, prompting us to release outdated desires and make space for new possibilities. While this may entail feelings of grief and disillusionment, embracing stillness and uncertainty fosters inner peace and clarity.

Meanwhile, the conjunction of retrograde Mercury and Venus with Chiron in Aries invites us to revisit past wounds and foster healing within ourselves and our relationships. Openness, curiosity, and honest communication are key to navigating this transformative journey.

As the Pink Full Moon in Scorpio approaches, it serves as a potent reminder of the ongoing dance between stability and evolution. Embracing change, confronting fears, and shedding light on the shadows within, pave the way for profound personal growth and transformation.

This full moon is an ideal opportunity to purge and release anything that may be blocking your path forward. It can be a good time to ask yourself what you've been holding onto, being honest about whether that's been helpful, and acknowledging what needs to be cleared to make room for new possibilities & opportunities. You can offer these things up now, allowing them to be carried away by the Full Moon’s powerful rays.

With so much cosmic energy shifting around us, our inner world can become our sanctuary, and if we’re able to go within, be still, present and deeply connect with ourselves and the wealth of wisdom living within us, our inner world can become our compass.

This full moon ritual encourages this journey inward, to reconnect to our inner wisdom/higher self/devine self, or whatever you wish to name it. This ritual offers us the opportunity to see with clarity the darker elements of ourselves whilst they are illuminated by the full moon, creating an optimal time to cleanse our energetic body and release any heaviness from our auric field that is not ours to carry. It is a great time to forgive others and forgive yourself in order to release and let go of all that may be holding you back in life. This is your opportunity to wipe your own slate clean in order to move forward.

What you will need for this Ritual

  • Journal & pen

  • Cleansing herbs/flowers/essential oils ~ this will depend on your chosen method of energy body/auric field cleansing

  • Objects of meaning to create a ritual altar It is recommended to have an object to represent each of the earthly elements:

1. Air ~ this could be incense, sage or diffused essential oils or perhaps gentle music.

2. Water ~ A glass of water

3. Fire ~ Candle flame

4. Earth ~ a plant, leaf, flower, a crystal or stone.

If you want to keep it simple, using a candle can actually cover all four elements (solid wax is earth, air flickers the flame, melted wax is water, and the fire is self-explanatory).

Optional extras:

  • Face oil & gua sha or face roller

  • Ceremonial Cacao or Chai or Tea

  • Tarot cards (if you don't have a deck then send through your essence images via email as mentioned above).

Sanctuary Scorpio Full Moon Ritual

*This Pink Full Moon in Scorpio arrives early on Wednesday the 24th April, reaching its fullest point at 9:48am AEST for those of us in QLD, Australia, which means the ideal time to do your Full Moon ritual is the evening prior on Tuesday 23rd, but don't stress if that doesn't work for you as the Full Moon energy hangs around for about 3 days either side of the peak full moon time.


When it comes to energy cleansing, intention is everything. You don’t need fancy tools, just the intention.

If you’ve chosen to have a cleansing bath then do this prior to beginning the ritual.

If you have a face oil and gua sha or face roller you may choose to incorporate the use of these in your ritual cleanse.

If you’re choosing to smudge yourself along with your space then you can begin by lighting your sage or palo santo or other herbs, stating out loud your intention.

🎤 eg. With this smoke I cleanse myself and my space and go ahead and allow the smoke to move around your whole body and your space. If you cannot tolerate smoke then simply open a door or a window to allow the fresh air to cleanse the space around you stating your intention out loud 🎤 eg.I welcome this fresh air to cleanse my space.

Once you have cleansed yourself and your space, light your candle/s, and take a moment to appreciate the warm light it brings, illuminating you and all that you’re currently carrying, as you initiate this ritual.

✨ Draw an imaginary circle around yourself with a golden protective light. This circle represents the fifth element; Aether, tonight this circle is your portal between the cosmos and the terrestrial world. It is emptiness and vastness all at once, and within this circle you have drawn, you will be able to connect with the omnipresence of Aether, as you reconnect with yourself in this present moment.

Before we dive in ~ Just a little note about Full Moon release energy

The cosmic energy that builds leading up to the full moon forces us to deal with "our stuff." It is about peaking and releasing the old, of letting go of lower negative energies or patterns we may have fallen into.

The Full Moon Illuminates our own darkness, the deepest parts of ourselves that we usually can't see. It allows us to see where things are out of balance and we get the chance to bring them back into harmony.

Now is the time to process and release our fears, angers, arguments, disappointments etc. But in order to release the karma of these things we have to forgive, whether this be forgiving ourselves or forgiving another. Before journeying into our shadows, it is important to remember that before you incarnated you will have made several soul agreements, knowing that you wanted to evolve during this lifetime, and these soul agreements ask that other souls push you throughout this lifetime. This will show up in ways that our society might label as “triggering” or “pushing buttons” but ultimately these souls are showing up as teachers and are helping to guide you along your unique path of personal evolution.

So bear this in mind as you begin this introspective ritual, and see if you can look upon the difficult interactions in your life and imagine they are someone with whom you have a soul contract. Look for the lessons that the upset is teaching you. Is it possible to see it as a 'set-up' designed to help you evolve rather than an 'up-set'? If we accept that we’re having this human experience to evolve in order to eventually no longer have to reincarnate, we will see all of these difficulties as opportunities to learn and evolve.

So in this moment, as we turn our attention upon our inner turmoil, see if you’re able to thank the souls in your life for upholding their soul contract as being one of your teachers, whether they’re aware of it or not. Thank them and forgive them for the pain they are causing you during this human experience.

Journey into darkness ~ forgive & release others

Take a moment to peer into the depths of yourself without judgement, allow yourself to bring to mind anyone with whom you hold anger, a grudge or resentment.

This can be from the past few days, weeks or at any time in the past where you’ve held onto something that was done or said to you and you haven’t yet been able to forgive them.

✍🏽 Write down their names and as much about the situation as you need to EXPRESS it from your mind and body. Allow it to leave you and make its way onto the paper.

Now it’s time to visualise your forgiveness. Imagine each of them in turn, see them inside a pink bubble (pink representing love), see them in their true essence, as though they’re still an innocent child free from the conditioning of the world, free from the traumas of their own human experiences, and there they are in the bubble, smiling at you.

🎤 Allow yourself to create a good feeling between you two, allow that feeling to remain in your body as you say out loud, I forgive you.”

If you feel to you can also ask them to forgive you for your sinister feelings towards them, and then imagine releasing them and sending them love which helps them float off in their pink bubble out of sight.

Once you have repeated this forgiveness visualisation for everyone on your list you can rip the page from your journal and put it aside, ready to burn at the end of the ritual.

Journey into darkness ~ forgive & release self

Take a moment to peer back into your depths and bring to mind any habits, thought patterns, beliefs or upset that you want to release.

✍🏽 Write each one down, as many as you like, and again you can write about each one as much as you need to to EXPRESS it and allow it to move from your mind and body onto the paper.

Now, as before with forgiving others, imagine yourself in that pink bubble, as though you’re looking at your inner child, your true essence smiling innocently at you, before the conditioning of the world took hold, before the trauma of your own human experiences happened.

Allow yourself to feel self compassion, empathy and love. Allow that loving feeling to remain in your body as you say 🎤 I forgive myself for my past mistakes, for my bad habits, and my negative patterns. I forgive myself for everything.And then imagine that your inner child’s bubble floats towards you and merges with you.

🎤 To release the karma of the negative energy that you have been carrying you can recite the following (you are welcome to adjust the wording if you wish):

“Under this glorious full moon I forgive everything, everyone, every experience, every memory of the past or present that needs forgiveness. I also forgive myself of past mistakes and allow myself to be governed by love in a universe that is love. As love adjusts my life I abide in peace.”

🎤 You may wish to add:

“I bring love and healing to all my thoughts, beliefs and relationships. I learn my lessons and move forward. I call on my soul fragments to be cleansed by the full moon and I call on them to rejoin me. I send love to myself and everyone I know and everyone who knows me, in all directions of time. Under this glorious full moon, I am healed. My life is healed. And so it is. So be it.”

🔥 You can now burn both of your forgiveness lists ~ this cleanses the energies into the ether for transmutation into love. (Please ensure you do this safely. Go outside and have some water nearby to pour over the ashes once burnt).

Physically release the energy from your body

You may wish to move your body in any way that feels good to you. This could be putting on some gentle music and exploring slow movement in your body as you sit or stand.

You may feel to put on some energising music and get moving, perhaps dancing more vigorously. Or perhaps you’d like to shake or do Emotional Freedom Tapping or any other energy shifting exercises that you feel called to do in this moment.

As you do move you might like to imagine the old stagnant negative energies physically leaving your body.

Gratitude replacing the energy void

Now that you’ve released the energy of anger, upset, grudge or resentment it’s helpful to replace this with gratitude energy.

Doing this allows you to raise your vibration (gratitude vibrates at a similar energy level as love ~ above 500MHz) empowering you to feel happier and healthier and will help your manifesting abilities in 2 weeks at the new moon.

✍🏽 To begin this gratitude practice, write a list of all the people, things, events, feelings etc. that you’re truly grateful for in your life.

Now try and really FEEL into your gratitude. To help you with this, here is a guided gratitude meditation.

🔥 And as this time of month calls for release, you can burn your gratitude list or

🌱 You’re also welcome to plant it in the earth if you prefer, as though you’re planting the seed of gratitude to grow more things to be grateful for.

However you choose to release this list from your possession you may also like to state:

🎤 “I know that I am blessed and I live my life within that knowing

An optional deeper journey into the self

Time to ask some hard questions specific to this Scorpio full moon. Having performed the energetic cleanse of the above ritual you're going to be more connected with your inner psychic and better able to answer the following questions truthfully, and hopefully without self judgement.

✍🏽 Scorpio Full Moon journalling prompts (feel free to choose just a few from this list)

  1. Have I been jealous, vengeful, suspicious of otherwise behaved toxically?

  2. Have I been living out of fear rather than joy?

  3. Have I been brooding and dark: focusing on the negative rather than the positive?

  4. Have I been cruel or cunning?

  5. Can my self positivity be enhanced through a deeper connection with my sensuality?

  6. Have I been resistant to change and why?

✍🏽 Broader cosmic energy journalling prompts (feel free to choose just a few from this list)

  1. How can I better ground myself in order to welcome change and transformation?

  2. What are my subconscious beliefs about wealth and self worth?

  3. Am I helping to manifest and shape my future with tangible action?

  4. Which habitual coping strategies are no longer serving me?

  5. What have I been clinging to? or what changes have I been resisting?

  6. What past wounds still need attention and healing?

Closing your ritual

If you chose to go deeper by exploring the above questions you may have received some intuitive messages and guidance from deep within. You may wish to take note of these, along with the following important messages during this full moon:

Now is a great time to reconnect with your sensuality.


Find a balance between over-intensity and lazy contentment.

  • To finish your ritual you may like to again move your body through dance, yoga, shaking, EFT tapping, Qigong or any other way that your body feels called to move.

  • You may also like to connect with your body through gentle massage all over your body and using your gua sha or face roller.

  • You may like to stand barefoot outside, connecting with the energy of the earth as you gaze upon the magnificence of the moon. Perhaps stating a mantra, intention or affirmation that arose from your journalling.

  • You may like to finish with a cup of chamomile tea or ceremonial cacao (as long as it wont keep you up all night of course!)

There is no right or wrong way to end your ritual, just follow your intuition and do whatever you feel called to do. But after you're finished, I do recommend doing some sort of calming meditation before bed as the full moon energy can really affect our sleep in the days leading up to and soon after the full moon.

I hope you've enjoyed this ritual. I'd love to hear any feedback you may have about what you loved or what you think could be improved upon. So please get in touch!

💜✨Love & light✨💜
