Ego Needs (Sun in Taurus) vs. Emotional Needs (Moon in Scorpio)
During this Full Moon we will be experiencing a pull between Taurus and Scorpio themes. The Sun in Taurus will signify our ego needs during this Full Moon, and the Moon in Scorpio will signify our emotional needs. Taurus is practical, sensual, and thorough. It wants everything to be beautiful. Its energy can also be very slow, stubborn, and more oriented around the self. This sign can get very wrapped up in its own values, self worth, money, and resources. Taurus likes to accumulate things and even overindulge in anything that arouses the senses, including food. These Taurus themes are not always bad, however, its opposite sign where the Moon will be challenges these.
Scorpio is about shared values and resources, sexual intimacy, and emotional depth. While Venus-ruled Taurus likes everything beautiful, the Mars and Pluto ruled Scorpio is not afraid to delve into the darkness. Scorpio is a complex, mysterious, and intense sign. Through this intensity it has tremendous power to facilitate powerful transformations. Metaphorically speaking, Scorpio likes to “take out the trash,” especially when there is a Full Moon in this sign. At its worst, the Scorpio intensity can manifest itself in a way that is obsessive, secretive, and manipulative.
Jupiter in Leo in a T-Square with this Full Moon.
At its best, Jupiter is the planet of expansion, optimism, luck, spiritual growth and beliefs. At its worst, it is over-idealistic, self-righteous, and judgmental. It can also just simply “over-do” things. It is in Leo, the sign of fun, playfulness, creativity, love, romance, and self-expression, but Leo is also the sign of excessive pride and ego. Among lovers, Jupiter in this sign can also either amplify (and overdo) the sensual and sexual nature of the Taurus – Scorpio polarity, or it could also create circumstances where it pushes a couple to grow and expand in their intimacy with each other by embracing new viewpoints around love, sex, and romance. This configuration can even create conflicts around over-indulgence and/or excessive spending of shared resources and money.
During this Full Moon, some people may find themselves judging others regarding their values or being judged in regards to their own values. The key to achieving the positive expansiveness of Jupiter lies in looking at everything objectively and with a sense of detachment. Our Ego needs and Emotional needs are in conflict here (either within ourselves and/or among others), so by embracing an objective viewpoint, we can move forward with decisions and actions that benefit all and help us to grow.
Mercury will be strong during this Full Moon as it is what is known as the “final dispositor”. It is in its own sign of Gemini, which brings a strong emphasis around communication. It is opposite Saturn retrograde in Sagittarius, which represents a pull between what we think and what is reflective of our inner truth. It can also be a time where new information, thoughts, and ideas can be instrumental in helping us to restructure our beliefs.
Things You Can Do for This Full Moon
If you feel that there is something that you need to release from your life, set that intention after the Moon starts to wane, up to 24 hours after 3:42am (Universal Time). If you are health enthusiast, anytime during the 3.5 days following the Full Moon is a good time to start a cleanse or detox. Scorpio rules the bowels and excretory system, and Spring time in the Northern Hemisphere is also great for cleansing as well. Any type of cleanse or detox that helps you to release toxins and waste accumulated from food would work best. Colon hydrotherapy, enemas, and other colon cleanses would also be good. If you are in a relationship, you might want to communicate anything regarding your intimacy with each other to help you grow, transform, and expand in your love and sexuality

Even knowing this could not have prepared me for what was to follow......
If you have been following you know I have rods in my back that make any activity difficult and Painful....Pain is my Guru ~ ॐ
The opportunity arose for me to get some free material so I took logical advantage of the situation and built some shade. Then The door showed up, so I did the front too!.....By this time I am physically exhausted and I forgot to drink plenty of fluids and I know better from experience.....it was over 90 those 2 days and then the painter comes by and all I had to do was get it ready, lol....that was 3hrs of hustle that I really did not need as I was already past a safe point....So I played guitar all afternoon which also was too much for my body,lol, and the landlord needed my help again for installing a latch on the laundry room door! This walking back and forth has become too much for me and I have to use my bike to walk, I can barely hold my self up at this point, of course no one seems to notice, lol. I went home and tried to fix something to eat I don't remember if I made it or not I know I couldn't talk...It was like what happened to me before when I suffered Heat Exhaustion, a little rest and some salt tablets and I was fine. This time was different...,.
