The mysterious and secretive Scorpio is one of the most elusive signs of the zodiac, never fully understood by any other creature of the horoscope. Their attitude can sometimes come off as abrasive and too defensive, their sting can indeed hurt but still, they are hardy the villain of this story. Instead, they are profoundly faithful and committed to the relationships they form with others, capable of deep emotion and second in intuitive feelings perhaps only to Cancer. Their outlook as well as spirituality however can sometimes take on a darker turn.
What the Full Moon in Scorpio Will Be About
With the Full Moon in its domain,the Scorpio is more than capable of lifelong commitment (sometimes to the detriment of their object of affection, but we won't go into that until the New Moon arrives in its constellation). They hold on to their loved ones, hold on very tight indeed, and rarely let go. Even with a passing risk of such a commitment becoming ever so slightly dysfunctional, they are willing to work on it, modify their behavior and help their partner change theirs, if needed, all for the sake of staying together.
Mysterious and intuitive, in some more primitive times a good portion of them would run the risk of being branded witches. If they do consciously decide to indulge in some occult activities, they are rumored to possess a natural propensity towards the ability to commune with the dead. With this creature of the zodiac, you never really know. And while this may be a slight exaggeration, your Scorpio will have a certain air of mystique around them and it will appear not beyond them to have a closet full of witchy supplies and be able to summon a demon or two at will. Their interests both spiritual and artistic will always lean towards the dark side.

Celebrating Your Evolving True Self in the Scorpio Full Moon
Scorpio advises us to stay focused and faithful to our true selves. Their transformative nature links them to the Death card in the Tarot, meaning that they are constantly evolving, leaving their old selves behind for one that is incrementally closer to their nature. Even if all the odds are against us, and against the partner our heart has chosen, even if we are misunderstood and facing harsh criticism and rebuke from others, we need to remain constant and not give in to the expectations of others. Believe in yourself and in your life's purpose. The stalwart and passionate Scorpio always does and never gives up. Ever. No one is allowed to cross its red lines and it is prepared to fight for them until the last breath.
This sense of determination, of being absolutely right and not budging an inch, comes from Scorpios innate intuitive feeling. Members of this sign commonly possess a connection to the other side, the other world, stronger than that of most mortals. If they know something to be right, correct and just, they will know it with all their heart and be prepared to face any enemy to prove their point. The Scorpio is not afraid to embrace their more paranormal, mystic side and neither should you be. Don't be afraid to dabble in the occult - you are not skilled enough to summon Beelzebub anyway - but you might learn something and sharpen your intuition in the process.
