Full Moon in Scorpio – May 5, ’12
8:35 pm PDT ~ 11:35pm EDT
The powerful Full Moon in Scorpio on Saturday is just the first of several MAJOR astrological events taking place in the month of May, so fasten your seatbelt!
This is a “SuperMoon” because it falls so close to the earth’s surface, which affects the earth’s electromagnetic field. All Full Moons intensify emotions, but this one is a doozy, triggering extra levels of reactivity so please go gently and consciously!
Do not engage in power struggles and if someone provokes you, take your sail out of their wind. If you withdraw your resistance, they have nothing to fight against.
This Full Moon falls on Wesak – the birth, enlightenment and death of the Buddha, a sacred and profound occasion for appreciation of these great wisdom teachings. It is an optimal time for contemplation and meditation as you open to Higher Self messages that want to come through for you.
Taurus and Scorpio are both financially friendly signs with great power to manifest and transform circumstances and resources. Take this opportunity to examine your values about yourself, what you value, love, $$, the material world and who you came here to be.
If you need to release anything – if you feel out of alignment, take action now or you may experience shifts during the Eclipses (May 20th and June 4th) that you didn’t consciously choose. Being proactive is empowering.
Make large purchases before Venus goes Retrograde on May 15th. Venus affects your judgment about beauty and value, so you should also make any dramatic style or permanent changes now unless you want to wait until July.
If you get a tattoo or remodel your living room while Venus is Retrograde, you may change your mind when it goes Direct and then be disappointed. Don’t put yourself through any added stress – buy now or wait!
Wishing you oceans of love, profound introspection and courageous actions that lead you closer to being more of the authentic You!
