Full Moon in Scorpio, May 3-4 & New Moon in Taurus, May 17-18
With the last exact square of Uranus to Pluto happening all through April, we finally ended years of those potent gods confronting us with upheaval and destructive forces all over the world. We are still in the orbit of the planets but in a more integrating phase. When we had the first connection with the conjunction of Uranus and Pluto in the sixties, it started a paradigm shift which has impacted our perception of life tremendously and it was just the start of deep societal transformation. We still will have to do the work of transformation to make this world a better place for all of us, not just the 1 percent of those in power. I believe it will be easier from here on…
This month we have the Sun in Taurus as well as the New Moon, which is helping to connect us with the goodness of life and our connection with Mother Earth. With a Jupiter square there is a lot of energy available to ask meaningful questions and give birth to perseverance in this integrating, yet still deep journey we are on.
Full Moon in Scorpio May 3-4
A Full Moon always brings light and awareness into the specifics of its sign. For a brief period of time we feel our inner world of emotions more directly and intensely than usual. As we explored earlier, Scorpio is ruled by Pluto. With the Full Moon in Scorpio you will be feeling very emotional and much needed changes in your life will be highlighted in your awareness. Wherever that Full Moon is located in your chart you will feel the strongest impact.
Scorpio is a Water Sign and Ruled by Pluto: Pluto is the Archetype of the God of the Underworld and the Lord of Death. Scorpio is a sign of our deepest & darkest mysteries as a human soul. When Scorpio is in the mix there will be a lot of soul searching and the need to face a deeper truth about yourself and others. You want to become more aware of:
• The deepest, unconscious corners of your soul
• The inner world of hidden emotions
• An emotional need for truth & honesty
New Moon in Taurus May 17-18
A New Moon always brings the energy of a new beginning into the specifics of its sign. For a brief period of time we have new emotional choices available, and there is extra clear access to feel our inner world of emotions more directly and intensely than usual.
Taurus is the First Sign of Earth and Ruled by Venus: Venus is the Goddess who enriches your heart with beauty and love. Taurus represents the Grounded One, the Farmer and the Gardener. Taurus is:
• Deeply in touch with the physical dimension of life
• Learning to enjoy the simple pleasures of life
• Valuing comfort, stability, physical pleasures
• Artistically gifted and oriented
• After all is said, very pragmatic and down to earth
When we look at a Moon or planets in Taurus, the soul has a need to learn to be more down to earth, realistic, grounded, calm and centered in the world. Through that learning the soul will gain a deepened sense of self-value and security. Enjoy your body, your physical home and get a massage or a facial and pamper your temple an extra bit this month. Learn to enjoy yourself!
In short: Don’t avoid some deeper truth about who you are in the process of creating your life! Take care of the temple of your soul, eat better, exercise more and commit yourself to a healthier life style. Enjoy the gift of a healthy body! If you don’t feel healthy, take responsibility and look into some alternative healing approaches. I just started a new regimen of acupuncture to help support my health!
