SCORPIO FULL MOON
The full Moon in Scorpio culminates tomorrow, (Thursday) at 6:45 AM EDT. It’s influence dominates the scene this week.
A full Moon indicates the completion of an effort – something that has been initiated and pursued and under the promising influence or the last new Moon.
The results are in under a full Moon. The rewards for your efforts, focus, and attention in a specific direction might be paying off. Or they might amount to nothing. The verdict is there for you to see.
As of very early Thursday morning (May 7th) this lunar cycle has been taken as far as it can go. Now it’s officially time to end something – to let go and move on.
Good luck with this. Scorpio and Taurus are fixed signs. They don’t actually want to let go of anything. This could signify an especially difficult emotional challenge that involves dislodging an old psychological framework that has been deeply embedded for a long time. The Moon’s trine aspect to Neptune signifies some help from invisible sources that dissolve the “ties that bind.”
Mars in Aquarius rules this full Moon. We want to be free of old patterns, habits, and strategies that don’t seem to be working. Creatively this looks like a time when we conclude taking more risk to achieve the level of mastery we’re capable of achieving might be beneficial.
Getting more serious about dissenting and rebelling against your current creative status quo – against political realities or a static, unchanging situation involving love may become more important.
It’s time to diagnose and address the unconscious, intractable, “difficult to define” problem, and the stagnation that persists.
Within the realm of relationships we might feel the need for something more substantial and intimate to satisfy an emotional need. The fear of risk or a break-through may be the obstacle that needs to dissolve over the next couple weeks.
There are new, more progressive ideas “blowing in the wind.” You could eventually align yourself with one of those or promote your own new, unusual, artistic form or a way of life that would be simpler, more natural, and more closely aligned with your talents, values, and your most authentic self.
Embedded in this full Moon chart is a strong message about the beginning of an 18 month long overthrow of old belief systems – especially with regard to ideas about the future, expansion, what’s true, and what actually represents progress for you.
The pre-cursor to embracing an area of promise involves opening your mind more fully to communicating, connecting, and influencing through words, images, chanellings, and what you know to be true.
Communication through artistic offerings and the beauty you’re capable of creating can be further developed. You might need to step up and drive the conversation with your ideas.
This is a good time to change the part of yourself that reflexively resists change. Breaking through blockages to progress – both in your own personal life and within the broader scheme – seems important.
This week the Sun and Mercury sextiles Neptune. There’s lots of invisible support for discovering and accepting the truth about what interests and inspires you.
Neptune squares Venus off and on until July 27th. This looks like an invitation to share your specific area of giftedness and the ideas you love. However it might feel more like you’re happiness is being withheld until something is developed further.
OVERVIEW FOR THE WEEK
Mercury in Taurus is highly active this week. He’s involved in everything and influencing almost every planet in your chart this week. Information, communication, the facts, connections, verbal/written expressions, and maybe an important clarification begins to manifest this week.
This week Saturn turns retrograde in the sign of Aquarius. We begin to more deeply integrate the truth and our responsibility to dissent when something inhumane or regressive is allowed free rein. We might think more critically and deeply about the future, the facts, and whether or not we believe what we’ve always believed.
Mars trines the North Node newly in the sign of Gemini. We’re encouraged to take some initial steps in a new direction. It’s important to advance the conversation we’re having with ourselves and others – even if that seems risky.
Mercury transits into the sign of Gemini (his strongest, most natural position) on May 11th and immediately trines Saturn in Aquarius. Dissenting, disturbing, rebellious ideas harmonize with what we interpret as our primary responsibility to ourself, others, and the world at this moment.
On May 12th Mars in the final (critical) degree of Aquarius trines the north Node newly in Gemini. Actions align harmoniously and beneficially with our interests and ideas.

ARIES (March 21-April 21)
The Scorpio full Moon in your 8th house of financial partnerships and hidden motivations opposes the Taurus Sun in the 2nd house of earned income and what you own. What’s yours and what you share “jointly” will be clarified. Sharing, negotiating, and collaborating can illuminate some old wounds or past betrayals, clarifying an area of inflexibility or deeply embedded pain. Venus in the communicative/duplicitous sign of Gemini squares Neptune indicating confusion, a misunderstanding uncertainty, and information (given or received) that’s not accurate or ever-changing. Deliberate attempts to deceive will be revealed. Happiness or something more certain you can count on may be just beyond your reach until July 27th of this year. As Mercury trines Jupiter and Pluto salary/income discussions are supported and most likely succeed. Mercury square Mars creates conflict between personal values and the concerns of a larger group or community. The nodal shift indicates a promising area for growth within your “communication/truth-telling/objective fact” sector of your chart. In light of the facts an old, outdated belief system may need to be released over the next 18 months.
TAURUS (April 21-May 21)
Venus’s square to Neptune has you in a holding pattern until July 27th. Decisions are difficult when the facts and the “bigger picture” remains unclear. Relationships may feel unsubstantial or unreliable. Happiness is just beyond your reach. The full Moon in your 7th house of committed relationships brings to light an area of inflexibility, deeply embedded pain, darker motivations, or the fear that something undermining is being hidden. But something is clarified this week (an answer is received). It involves assertion, courage, and steadfastness, and actions aligned with your values. Pallas, the asteroid of pattern recognition and the creation of more enlightened/effective strategies may be a source of conflict with what makes you comfortable. The nodal shift makes it possible to earn a better living by sharing information. What you know becomes more valuable within the marketplace. At the same time setting yourself free of a financial partnership or changing your beliefs about intimacy, power, and the occult opens doors.
Venus’s square to Neptune can make your future life direction or career uncertain or confusing. Relationship “messaging” can feel unclear, insincere, trivial, or unsubstantial. Happiness is essentially out of reach or “on hold” until July 27th. It might be wise to delay consequential decision-making (decisions that affect your career or life direction) until then. Tomorrow’s full Moon highlights an area of intensity, old pain, inflexibility, power, or darker motivations within the work environment/health sector of your chart. But something may be clarified this week – an answer or something more certain with regard to work your responsibilities. Mercury in your 12th house of intuitive knowing supports a spiritually informed career direction or decision. Manifestation and magic is easier to conjure up and direct. This week’s nodal shift makes bold initiatives, efforts to influence or make an impact through information sharing and the cultivation of courageous speech are promising areas for further development. What needs to fade away is an old belief system involving the nature of relationships and your role within them.
The nodal shift indicates that an area of great promise is emerging in your 12th house of mystery, aloneness, spiritual connection, and gestational development. It is likely a quiet retreat into yourself with more alone time to contemplate your inner nature will open new worlds to you over the next 18 months. At the same time the release of an old belief system involving your work or health may be necessary. Bias can result in erroneous conclusions. Something related to the mind/body connection is ripe for further development. But your mind must be free to go where the evidence/research leads. Solitary contemplation and receptivity to higher sources of information seems especially important. Venus (inner peace and happiness) is challenged by uncertainty or a future that appears to be slipping away. That may be resolved by July 27th. The full Moon in your 5th house of romantic love and joyful self expression points to an unconscious area of inflexibility, restriction, deeply embedded woundedness, and restricted healing power. A clarification or answer is provided this week. It changes the game.
LEO (July 21-Aug 21)
The full Moon in your 4th sector (home, family, security, and the past) points to an area of inflexibility, restriction, darkness, deeply embedded woundedness, and a lack of conscious awareness. That might change this week as the Taurus Sun shines the light of clarification on something intractable providing an answer that promotes healing and the ability to wield power more freely. Most likely this relates to your career, your foundation, your mom, or your life direction. Happiness is withheld until July 27th when something more is clarified or made certain. Until then things are confusing and poorly defined. This week an area that holds great promise for further development opens up. But it may be contingent upon your willingness to release some old beliefs about the nature of love – what it means and how it “should” be expressed. The area for further development seems to relate to communication and listening – being more receptive to a wide variety of ways in which love can be expressed. Listening seems to be the critical component. Where you might have taken great pleasure in expounding on your beliefs and rules about love in the past – now it’s time to consider opening the door to different points of view and really listening.
VIRGO (August 21-Sep 21)
Tomorrow’s full Moon in your third house of communication points to an area of reflexive defensiveness, unconscious fear, deeply embedded woundedness, darker motivations, and possibly resistance to the truth. But something will be clarified (an answer offered) that changes the game. This appears to relate to your beliefs, to the future, higher education, publishing, legal resolutions, or something related to religious law vs. spiritual law. An increase in your ability to wield power and influence within the realm of communication (or with regard to the truth) materializes. Neptune squares Venus in your 10th house of your life direction and career. There may be a level of dissatisfaction or unhappiness that holds you back. This will be resolved on July 27th. Something is clarified or becomes more certain then. But until then it may be wise to delay any consequential decisions. Saturn retrogrades in your 6th house of work and health. It’s time to backtrack, revisit, or rethink something that once felt stabilizing, reliable, and freeing. A new, more exciting work/health strategy may be implemented this week. It seems timely. This week area of great promise opens up. It seems to involve stepping into the role of a “thought leader” while moving away from home/family pre-occupations.
LIBRA (September 21 – October 21)
Tomorrow’s full Moon in your second house of what you value most – earned income, stabilization, and your most important contribution – is highlighted. There is something unconscious related to inflexibility, deeply embedded woundedness, a poor sense of self-worth, or financial insecurity that distorts your way through life and maybe diminishes your power. But this week something about all of that is clarified. It seems related to trust, intimacy or a financial partnership. The game changes. An answer is provided. The way forward is clarified. The impending Nodal shift opens up an area of great promise for you related to further self-development. This appears to revolve around communication, teaching, publishing, higher education, foreign language acquisition, travel, and beliefs with some “guru-like” influences blended in. Further development depends on your ability to release old beliefs about what’s acceptable and what’s not within the realm of communication or with regard to the kind of connections you’re willing to make. Venus in Gemini squares Neptune in Pisces. This tends to dissolve your ability to feel happy and to promote something substantial within the realm of communication. That will be resolved on July 27th.
The full Moon in Scorpio culminates in your first house of your overall style and approach to life, the way you make an impact, or place your personal stamp on the world. Something historically inflexible, suspicious, resentful, or dark – something of which you’re probably not totally aware – may be clarified this week. Your ability to wield power in the world (and within the realm of relationships) is advantaged as a result. Communication with partners and others continues to be challenged. It may be related to restrictions and your need to feel freer and more comfortable in your own home. Being more relaxed, spontaneous, and free to pursue what you most desire may be constrained at the moment. Venus in your 8th sector (happiness stemming from deep intimate connections and understanding) is withheld until July 27th. Nothing seems certain. Commitments remain vague and in-flux. In some regard it may be time to “clean and clear the decks.” An area of great promise opens up within your 8th (Scorpio) house. Communication and truthfulness (where intimacy is concerned) can be more fully developed as you release old beliefs about the nature of your contribution and the primacy of financial partnerships.
SAGITTARIUS (November 21- December 21)
This week the Nodal shift affects you most directly. It might be time for an entire style and approach to life to be released in favor of something updated and more authentically representative of the person you’ve become. This is a turning point where most of the promise and opportunity for future growth is housed in your 7th sector of relationships. It’s time to look more closely and more critically at the nature of your communication with a partner or with others in general. Mercury (the messenger) in your 6th house of self improvement indicates the potentially beneficial effect of making an effort to be a more aware, relaxed, consistent, but flexible, and receptive communicator. It’s likely you will be taken more seriously as you make consistent improvements. What you value most will be met with greater respect. The full Moon in your 12th house – the hidden sector of your life – highlights and clarifies something you were previously unaware existed within yourself. An answer and a clarification is forthcoming.
CAPRICORN (December 21-January 21)
Next Monday Saturn retrogrades in the sign of Aquarius. It’s likely you’ll be retracing old steps or revisiting a prior situation within the workplace. Issues of commitment that have been uncertain for awhile may be resolved. Something easier, more reliable, or less restrictive stabilizes the situation The “debt owed” for past mistakes is forgiven. Neptune squares Venus. Uncertainty reigns within the workplace or with regard to your health. Decision making remains difficult given the vague/error-prone nature of information you receive. Happiness is withheld until July 27th. The full Moon in your 11th house indicating receptivity, friendships, social interactions, group efforts, or community concerns most likely houses some resentment, inflexibility, or darker motivations. The Sun in Taurus shines the light of understanding on these areas of your life. An answer or clarification is received. A new love interest might be well-received. The impending Nodal shift implies that an area of great promise has moved into the relationship sector of your chart. It’s time to cultivate connections as you release loner/isolationist tendencies.
AQUARIUS (January 21-February 21)
Mars in Aquarius in your 1st house energizes, angers, and stimulates lots of ideas and conversations. Those are likely to be edgy and impatient. Saturn in your 1st house reins you in, slows you down, and insists you get more serious about developing new innovative strategies – most likely related to your professional life, your approach to life in general, or your role within the realm of relationships. . Financial independence or stabilization may be elusive making decisions related to home, family, and the past difficult through July 27th. On May 11th Saturn retrogrades. A deeper level of thought or some backtracking regarding the kind of revolutionary impact you want to make is under review. Fireworks may be ignite against an inflexible situation on the home front. A clarification or answer may be delivered regarding the worth of your home or support of from family. A shift encourages a move away from group work toward something more personally enjoyable and fulfilling – a more authentic expression of yourself, your talent, and what you love most. It might feel self-indulgent.
PISCES (February 21-March 21)
This Scorpio full Moon brings some clarification to questions involving expansion, exploration, and the dislodging of old psychological framework related to an obsession over your ability to control the future – or to conversations and interests centered around the future. Neptune squares Venus creating confusion or something uncertain in the sector of your chart related to home, family, security, and happiness. Nothing definitive will emerge in this regard until July 27th of this year. Happiness might be withheld until then. Something that might eventually feel more authentic and expressive of your true self is gestating behind the scenes in your isolating 12th house. It looks seriously promising with regard to your overall effectiveness. A hidden talent for a quiet but powerful rebellion against inhumane/unjust practices is developing behind the scenes. A shift takes hold this week emphasizing the career vs. domestic aspect of your life. The domestic sector looks more promising. This could relate to a home office situation. But it could also indicate a gradual move away from previous your professional life.
