The full moon of May 2019 is at 27 Scorpio, we are in for another crescendo of passionate feelings, explorations and events. For those of you who are still reeling from the recent Mercury retrograde which went into Pisces (March), this Full Moon could be a resolution, or further digging up of karma. The Scorpio energy will bring out passionate emotions, and possibly some reactions from down deep, which you may not be aware that you’ve been repressing. The good news is that there is a lot of energy for resolving emotional scars, and karma, and the pathways are quite clear. There are likely to be insights into pains, scars and desires, which you may not be fully conscious of. Scorpio energy is generally a good time for some psychological therapy. Scorpio issues include jealousy, revenge, power, control; deep passions which rule us.
The Moon is also forming a trine to Chiron, which is just entering Aries, coming to its most powerful point soon after the actual time of the Full Moon. The Moon could be reflecting problems with your Will and motivation, or lack of it. This connection highlights the emotional nature of the wounds we suffer, the wounds of mothering or lack thereof, and the emotional needs of the inner child. If your Inner child is not whole, you may lack the confidence to assert your will, and continually feel downtrodden. At the opposite end of the spectrum, you could compensate, by never feeling fully visible unless you impose your will on others to an absurd degree. We will be drawn into the shadows of our Selves, and will be asked to look at our own willingness to see our Selves as we really are.
The Moon is also connected to Neptune, which can relieve emotional wounds through spiritual practices or artistic expression The more dangerous form of release is through drugs, alcohol or other escapism. Now that you know you’ll be confronted with this choice (good possibility of this occurring even before the exact fullness of the Moon), you can consciously and mindfully make the decision! This energy is also very spiritual and intuitive, so insights, occult experiences, religious feelings are all highlighted. Meditation to musical sounds is particularly supported for healing now.
Finally, the Scorpio Moon is in sextile to the very trying Saturn/South Node/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn. If you’ve felt that corruption and decay have been belching forth lately, this is the aspect that is responsible. Unfortunately, systems can only be cleaned out by making sure that the filth and drudge come out! We certainly see it on the main stage of our public lives, and this month, some of us may find that our deepest emotional hangups are ripe for emission! This could be a time which is not pretty! The good news is that this is the emptying out which is necessary for new beginnings.
