Scorpio Full Moon: May 18 2:11pm PDT

Scorpio Full Moon
May 18 2:11pm PDT

Two weeks ago we launched Taurus New Moon.  At that time we discussed the importance of being super practical and we talked about Uranus and how he may be sparking internal changes.   For the last two weeks some of us have been getting brilliant insight or flashes that speak to actions we may want to take.   With Taurus we know that the value of anything big must start with small steps and then bit-by-bit we get what we want.  Now on Full Moon, Scorpio asks ---“So you want to make changes.” “Okay how is your power?”   “How is your empowerment?”  “Allow me to help you find your power—in my own Scorpio way.” 

Scorpio, a water sign knows that emotions are critical to motivate any actions.  However Scorpio is not sloppy about emotions.   Instead, Scorpio asks that we go down deep in our psyche and if there are old ghosts that are holding us back embrace those insecurities, don’t hide but consume them and transform them into self –power.    In other words, Scorpio says fill in the blanks: “I can’t get/do/have/be _______ because of ________” .  Then Scorpio says,  “Thank you for being honest about your insecurity, now let’s go fix it.” 

On this full moon chart Mercury is opposing the moon, which is a bit of a conundrum for Scorpio. Mercury is just so dang-mental that he does not like to go down into his feelings and that’s all Scorpio wants us to do is find our emotions especially our icky ones and then transmute, transform transition into something stronger.  

For the three days of the full moon see if conversations get into your crawl.   And if you can’t quite figure out what is bugging you.   Process it and see if those thoughts or conversations have activated insecurities.    Let them come up.    This is how we get through our hurdles.  

There is another thing Scorpio likes to try to do and that is control everything and everyone.   Ha!   Like that ever works.    Silly.  Don’t even bother wasting your time with controllers or even your own controlling tendencies.   Might I suggest, letting it go for these 3 days of the full moon, see if you can get on the bigger side of fear.  Because at the end of the day, it is fear  that motivates controlling habits. 

There is a nice aspect from Pluto to the moon and to Mercury as well, so that suggests these won’t be hideous in your face insecurities, just those annoying ones that have been bugging you for awhile.   Use the full moon to clear out these non -helpful feelings—because that’s Scorpio’s job. Find them, process them and grow stronger for it. 

Enjoy these three days.

This Week in Astrology

This week continues the Taurus New Moon until the morning of May 8th.   Take the opportunity to continue to plant seeds that speak to your finances and your properties.   Plant seeds that are PRACTICAL.  Put your emotions aside, put your fears aside and just focus on being practical.  What ever question comes up the answer is practicality.    

Tuesday’s money and love feel tight with Venus and Saturn getting into it.   Everything has a bit of coldness around it.  Not a warm and cozy day.    Again resort to being practical. 

Wednesday’s Crescent Moon unfolds bringing our family into focus.  What are you learning about your family?  What are you learning about your feelings?  What are you learning about your food?  What are you learning about your history?   
Also on the 8thMercury and Uranus connect for brilliant thoughts and unusual conversations.   Breakthroughs begin with new thoughts.  

The rest of the week the emphasis is on a Venus tangle with Pluto.  The power of love and love of power will be out for all to see.  A boost from Jupiter suggests something ‘foreign’ coming in that brings fresh ideas or resources.   Finally on Saturday we get another round of support on our practicality by a Sun Saturn relationship.   Building something up block by block, bit by bit is satisfying and supported.  

Special Focus
5/8: Mercury conjunct Uranus. Brilliant and chaotic thinking.  Weird conversations or breakthroughs.

Taurus New Moon: May 4 3:45pm PDT

A Taurus Tableau 

Hurray!  We survived all the thrills and spills of Aries Cycle.   Can you even remember April 5th?  Seems like an eternity ago.  Now we are at Taurus!   Yay. We need it.  
You can find my article  on Margaret Wendt's SITE.    

A snippet from the article......
Taurus New Moon has arrived!    The fiery days of Aries have passed and we dig in deep with earthy Taurus.  

Last year on May 15 we had Taurus New Moon and four hours later Uranus moved into Taurus.   At that moment a bell was rung and even if we didn’t hear it, deep in all our cells we felt a reverberation.    We sensed ‘change is afoot’.    Ideas percolated, odd thoughts and curious encounters unfolded for a few months until August and the vibration felt less available.  Perhaps we had stuff on our docket that needed attention and whatever were those feelings or thoughts were now dismissed or ignored.    And so it was until March 6 when the bell rang again except this time it was much louder.   Like an echo in a vast canyon we heard “Hello” and now on this Taurus new moon we respond back with “I hear you.”   

Taurus is the first earth sign of the zodiac and it is very practical and earth bound.   Taurus connects to our: money, possessions, properties, security, land, banking, insurance, stock exchange, farming, gardens, cattle, cereal crops, wheat, apples agriculture, retirements, as you can see a very practical and grounded list. 

Taurus is ruled by Venus, and all of these issues speak to worth.  What are they worth to you?   How do you value your money?  Your security?  Your comfort? Your possessions?  Do you need more?  Do you feel insecure?   Or are some of you feeling trapped by them?  What changes can you feel are coming that connect to these things ruled by Taurus?   Read the list again and think about it.  

Now let’s go back to Uranus.  He has not been in Taurus since 1935-1941.   And here is again ready to do his thing.  Uranus speaks to electricity, technology, uniqueness, discovery, innovation and .......
