April’s Full Pink Moon in Scorpio: Intense arguments could be on the horizon

Apr 21, 2024

The April Full Pink Moon is almost upon us (April 24th ) and despite first impressions of a calm arrival, astrologers are warning because it appears in fiery Scorpio intense arguments could be on the way.

Leading Australian intuitive astrologer and spiritualist Rose Smith says any full moon brings with it a “culmination”, so being in Scorpio this moon’s peak could prompt a compulsion from many people to speak what’s on their minds!

“Scorpio is a very emotional and passionate sign associated with intensity and transformation,” said Ms Smith.

“Scorpios are known to be fierce but can also hide their passions – their still waters run deep. What may look fine on the surface this full moon could really be brewing something beneath and buried emotions and subconscious desires may bubble over.”

Scorpio is ruled by Pluto, the planet that governs both destruction and transformation, so Ms Smith said this moon is highlighting the need to confront those hidden issues.

“We can expect some deep spiritual topics to emerge with friends, family and acquaintances… they may even be discussions to do with shared resources, death or inheritances,” said Ms Smith.

“But be careful as muck on the bottom gets stirred up and fiery Scorpio starts a debate. These intense and emotional arguments may not be logical but many of us will feel compelled to say something!”

Ms Smith, who also runs the largest psychic network based in the southern hemisphere, Absolute Soul Secrets, said the full moon in Scorpio occurs when the moon is opposite the sun, which is in the sign of Taurus.

“It’s a time when the moon’s energy is at its peak – which shows in how it illuminates the sky,” said Ms Smith.

“There could be a focus on anything related to power, control, intimacy and secrets. There may also be a focus on investments, real estate or anything you share with someone else.”

Ms Smith said this full moon gives a chance for people to release what no longer serves them and embrace transformation – which is what Scorpio wants.

“If you dive below the surface you could unlock subconscious patterns that block personal growth.”

Scorpio is a fixed water sign, so other signs Taurus, Leo, Aquarius, along with Cancer and Pisces will feel the effects of this moon the most, but anyone and everyone can experience its force.

“Your star sign mode is important because astrology is based on the seasons. Cardinal signs mark the beginning of seasons, followed by fixed signs in the middle of the season and mutable signs at the end of the season,” said Ms Smith.

By name, this month’s full moon is known as the “Pink” Full Moon, but not because it’s pink in colour. The moon is named after the wildflower pink phlox that blooms in the United States at this time of year.

Ms Smith said April 21st was also an important astrological date as Jupiter conjuncts Uranus.

“This rare conjunction (occurs every 14 years) will magnify the need for freedom and change,” said Ms Smith.

“The connection of these two planets helps us to break through barriers and uncover uncharted waters within ourselves.”

“You could have an unexpected raise, a promotion, or financial gains in real estate or other investments. And technology, especially the internet may be affected.”

“But then on April 25th , Mercury is out of retrograde so things should start to move forward.”

When can you see this month’s Scorpio full moon? It will be reaching its peak on Wednesday, April 24th at 9.48am.

Here are Ms Smith’s Scorpio full moon horoscopes:

Aries (March 21 to April 19): You may want to be close to someone and yet there’s a possible tendency to close yourself off. Think about where this came from? This has the potential to affect your closest relationships right now, so it’s time to get to the bottom of it. Want to know a secret dear Aries? Well, look at your own! Deep and intense feelings could rise up so be aware of what is really happening inside you and when difficulties arise, you’ll be more than ready. Under the spotlight could also be matters of joint finances or investments. Real estate might also be on your agenda too. Perhaps legalities need attention, including wills or inheritances. It’s a great time to get professional financial advice on matters like these. If you have someone special, do make time for intimacy together and to sort out some issues as Venus the planet of love can also bring possible conflict, especially about money.

Taurus (April 20 to May 20): You could be in for a few coming challenges, it’s nothing you can’t handle in your stable and secure manner. However, Pluto the Transformer, Venus the Lover and the Sun are not smiling at you. You could find transformation and change on the horizon in your important relationships. The full moon in Scorpio brings intense and compelling emotions however this doesn’t necessarily mean it’s a negative thing. The situation could end up quite positive eventually bringing couples together or friends even closer. Legalities and even connections with those you don’t normally get along with could also be affected. Do be careful with your communications as Mercury is in trickster mode until the 25th. Words misspoken are like a bushfire – it’s impossible to rein them back once they escape your mouth!

Gemini (May 21 to June 20): Pluto the Transformer and the Sun have hard aspects to your full moon which may bring difficulties in your daily routine, your well-being or your normal work. Big changes are coming in these areas, and you may have to be quick on your feet to cope with change. Do remember to take some time out when you can, as stress can easily build up if you don’t indulge in some self-care. Daily routines, habits and work could be quite busy now or perhaps they don’t go as smoothly as you would like. Go slow and carefully and be especially careful with your communications as your Ruler Mercury is retrograde right until the 25th. Even for a few days after, misunderstandings and miscommunications are possible. It’s not the best time to travel either, so take it easy and allow plenty of time in case of delays.

Cancer (June 21 to July 22): Romantic inclinations could be very strong and intense now so you may be inclined to get out and about to look for someone special, if you’re free to do so. Don’t rush in where angels fear to tread, because Pluto can give intense desire but also bring painful storms as well. Children or your own inner child may play up – you want to be free in some respect perhaps, however it’s probably not a practical solution right now. The same goes for close friendships, they could be more volatile than usual, giving each other space to calm down can help. Your curiosity is likely to be quite strong, however, be careful you don’t bite off more than you can chew. Even if your feelings feel rather urgent, try to slow things down and don’t rush into any now. There’s plenty of time. Your creativity and desire for fun might be full steam ahead, so make the most of this while the Sun shines.

Leo (July 23 to August 22): Sparks and fires might start at home or in connection with your family, so watch out for arguments and miscommunications especially as your Ruler the Sun is opposite this intense full moon. Your career or authority figures could also be at the centre of misunderstandings so go easy there too. You could be feeling quite energetic, but others may not be able to keep up with you, so slow down and take a breath! Old feelings from the past may come back to remind you of previous relationships. Whilst you can’t change what happened then, you can make new decisions now about how you respond. You can always move on if you choose. It’s a good time to stay close to home and attend to domestic tasks and perhaps you may feel like entertaining at home.

Virgo (August 23 to September 22): Your Ruler Mercury can lead you into sticky communication issues, especially relating to shared assets, finances and intimacy so do be careful for the rest of April that nothing too controversial escapes your mouth. Simultaneously, you may wish to expand your horizons, but something seems to get in the way and marketing and promotions are similarly affected if you work in PR or advertising. On the upside, you can finish old projects that you started before April, and you may hear from old friends or people you knew previously. You will probably make decisions based on how you feel rather than based on logic, but that’s not a bad thing if you avail yourself of at least some facts beforehand. Reality is tapping on your door, so do find a suitable balance with your feelings and intuitions. Travel plans could be delayed.

Libra (September 23 to October 22): It could be an intense time with your money. So don’t be drawn into get rich quick schemes or overspending. Your creative, leisure and pleasure urges are transforming! However, your personal funds could be short for how you wish to manifest these changes. Be strong and take control of your money, possessions and also your self-worth dear Libra! You might be able to make compromises in these areas… if anyone can, you can! Shared resources such as real estate, investments and inheritances or wills could also come to your attention. Are you getting enough good quality intimacy now? This is more important that you may think. Matters around close friends and partners where you can share your true authentic self with are key and could bring up intense feelings. You can handle this, so find the balance in life and go for it!

Scorpio (October 23 to November 21): This full moon is smiling upon you Scorpio! You are being guided towards a deeper level of authenticity, maybe not as gently as you would like though. You might wish to show the world who you really are by changing your appearance in some way. Those around you see your depth and intensity more than usual, therefore do be careful with your words as they have more power than you think. You can get your message out into the world in a magnetically alluring way now too! It’s also a great time to listen to others even if you feel quite intense about your own message. Partners and those close to you may have some issues adjusting to your newfound energy, however it’s really important that you are true to yourself. Ructions or disturbances around your home or family could arise as you may become more outspoken.

Sagittarius (November 22 to December 21): You’re likely to be looking deeper than just the superficial layers. Part of this involves exploration of your own subconscious. You’re likely to be investigating your dreams, noticing synchronicities and generally having a deeper and fuller worldview. The full moon could bring up deep and compellingly intense subconscious contents that steer you in a new direction. Perhaps, the past comes up too with unfinished business that needs some attention so you can move forward again. You may need some time out to come to terms with everything that arises. Get out into nature and go off by yourself somewhere without the distractions of everyday life. You can pick up messages out of ‘thin air’ now also, but for the remainder of this month, they could be difficult to understand or get misconstrued somehow.

Capricorn (December 22nd to January 19): Intense situations can arise now with friends and associates. Be cautious in communications – shouldn’t be too hard for you dear Capricorn! Sometimes we have to let go of past associations to make space for new ones coming in. Your hopes and dreams could be similarly affected. Don’t be so welded to previous ideas about your life that you can’t change to allow better opportunities to come in. You may also hear of ‘secrets’ or matters that would be better off left alone. Pluto is bringing challenges in your money zone, it will soon go retrograde, and things could quieten down there. Your finances, possessions or attitudes to these are changing and perhaps insights about money come. Perhaps there’s realisations that money as it isn’t as important as having love in your life. Maybe you decide to draw more friends into your world too. Your life is changing and it’s ok!

Aquarius (January 20th to February 18): Even though there may be stressful situations in the background, you have the ability to cope with these situations in a calm and practical way… well done you! Issues could arise around your career or home life which could be unpredictable or volatile. However, you’re a master of management now and find a way to balance the seemingly opposite energies between home, family and career. An authority figure could also be involved, perhaps a woman. Your life is likely to be more public than usual, so do be cautious about social media. Gotta keep that reputation of yours intact – nice and shiny! You probably work well with the public now and others notice you. You may support others in career or perhaps a parent may need your help.

Pisces (February 19 to March 20): Flowing like a river, you may hear intense news, or secrets and you might wish to help out in typical Pisces fashion. It’s time to consider how you might grow your life and broaden your horizons. Perhaps travel is on your mind now and it’s a great time to plan where you might go and what you might do. However, jumping on a plane this very minute probably isn’t the best idea, maybe wait a few weeks at least. But one thing is for sure and that is that your life is certainly changing and getting more in touch with the world at large is probably on your agenda. Options also on the table are education and spirituality. Check into how you can grow as a person. The world is so much bigger
