The Full Moon in emotionally deep Scorpio is always an intense event. This one on April 25, 2013, at 3:57 p.m. EDT, though, takes things to another level that challenges relationships and finances. First, it's a lunar eclipse that stirs powerful feelings and signals the need to let go of old habits and expectations. Severe Saturn is conjunct the Moon, adding more pressure, while aggressive Mars joined with the Sun encourages persistence. Yet, instead of fighting to hold onto what you have, carefully choosing what to let go will ultimately be more rewarding.

This powerful Lunar Eclipse lands in your 8th House of Deep Sharing to ratchet up pressure in personal and professional partnerships. Finances and feelings need to be re-evaluated without sentiment.

Struggling to hold your ground is an understandable response to this challenging Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio.

Work, health and your daily routines are up for some adjustments with this Scorpio Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in your 6th House of Adjustments.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
Stress in managing public responsibilities may increase with this exigent Scorpio Full Moon Eclipse in your 10th House of Career.

Plans for travel, additional education, or dealing with someone in a faraway place may be threatened with this Scorpio Full Moon Eclipse.
