Nodal Shift / Full Moon in Scorpio – May 2020
Happy May Day! Welcome to a new month – flowers are blooming, days are longer and the world is still shapeshifting…
Venus (values, relationships) squares Neptune (dreams) exactly on May 3, but we’ll feel it all week, so be aware of the potential impact on your outlook and decision-making.
Venus is earthly love and what makes life worth living; your desires, your style and how you value your Self. Neptune is Divine Love, the higher octave of 3D and unconditional love.
Neptune has no boundaries (All are One), so you feel everything and can connect to higher dimensions, if that’s your thing.
Here on planet earth, no boundaries can be highly inconvenient, especially if you absorb others’ pain, negativity or beliefs. It’s easy to be influenced, so monitor your environment with thoughtfulness and if you feel yourself going down, check what’s incoming and make needed changes.
Also, Venus-Neptune can create delusions that feel really real, because you can envision the highest potential possible. What you see IS real on a higher level, but it’s not necessarily true on the earth plane, so if you have to make a major decision, please reality check with a trusted advisor.
Lack of clarity is an expression of this energy, like a Monet painting. Beautiful, but more an impression (subjective), than actual. This can also lead to disillusionment or melancholy when reality feels too harsh, so give yourself extra good care and support.
A final word about Venus-Neptune (active much of the month): we won’t know exactly what’s going on. Neptune clouds your vision and alters reality, so don’t go crazy trying to figure it out. Flow with the energy and do your best to stay high. Spiritual practice, love and creativity is the best use of this energy.
Mercury conjuncts the Sun on May 4, activating an idea or communication that helps to guide you forward in some way.
Don’t pressure yourself by expecting a literal map of what’s next, rather, be open to whatever shows up, either internally or externally (both coming from you ). Just pay attention, don’t push. Also good energy for handling paperwork or business To Do’s.
On May 5, the Nodes shift from Cancer-Capricorn to Gemini-Sagittarius. The North Node is our Destiny or where we want to go. The South Node is the past and old patterns that need to end or change.
The North Node in Cancer for the last 18 months has directed you to greater Self-care and getting your needs met. Divine Feminine energy. Capricorn (the past) was the patriarchy and rigid old outdated structures.
Now we move from sensitive Cancer into curious, flexible, data-loving Gemini for the next 18 months! Gemini is an air sign, which processes mentally and communicates in all forms.
It’s about gathering info and opening to all points of view, rather than being attached to one way and being Self-righteous. That is the Sagittarius South Node.
Sagittarius rules travel, foreign countries/cultures, religion, philosophy and beliefs. Are you willing to examine your beliefs? That’s the call of the South Node in Sagittarius. And we can see what’s happened to foreign travel, shut down for the last few months – and not opening any time soon.
The last time the Nodes were in Gemini-Sagittarius was just after 9/11 – Oct ’01 – April ’03. I was a ministerial student at One Spirit Interfaith Seminary in NYC and we began on 9/8/01.
It’s mind-blowing to see how the South Node in Sagittarius’ foreign theme has emerged, once again, in a new form.
On May 7 @ 6:45am EDT we have a Full Moon in Scorpio. Scorpio is intense and brings hidden things to light, so watch for suppressed or repressed info, feelings and awakenings. Mercury sextiles Neptune on this Full Moon, bringing intuitive insights to guide you, as well as creative, spiritual expressions that will inspire you (and others) on levels beyond language.
Easy does it on the few days leading up to the Full Moon, when emotions are heightened and everyone is more sensitive.
Also, be aware of issues around power – how you use it and give it away. This is your opportunity to see what you’ve been doing that’s not working – and make changes.
Next week we have three planets turning Retrograde, so we focus on one week at a time. Be here now. Pay attention and take good care of your Self and each other. Stay curious and know that All Is Well.
As always, I’m sending you love and my most heartfelt gratitude for your presence on our journey together. xo
