As always Eclipses are powerful and loaded with energy. This eclipse is no different. Just having a Full Moon in Scorpio is powerful to begin with because when the Moon is in this Zodiac sign it has such deep, penetrating, obsessive feeling. We feel everything more intensely when the Moon is in the sign of Scorpio. Even passion and joy, love and desire, as well as jealousy and betrayal. We need to be careful not to become obsessed. We may also take a little something someone said or did and spin it out into a major issue or offense. This doesn’t mean there aren’t some big issues brewing for some people because that is also very true.
I simply want you to be aware that there will be differing levels of intensity with this Eclipse depending on your current life circumstances.
We could also use the qualities of this Scorpio eclipse by doing some much needed research. This works well with the current Retrograde of Mercury because he also would like us to slow down, take our time and process or integrate.
On another point we as humans do judge things as good or bad, right or wrong, light or dark. But the truth here is no matter how you end up using the energy of this eclipse or how it manifests in your life, it will be how you need it for this moment in time.
Information – transformation – understanding – regeneration - Scorpio
Now let’s get into some more of the details of this Lunar Eclipse plus other lunar event days that are directly connected to this Full Moon Lunar Eclipse.
Since it is a Lunar Eclipse it is also call a Blood Moon because of the red color of the shadow created by the earth that crosses the face of the Moon during the event. If it is night in your location during the Eclipse, then you will be able to see it. Ask Nasa.gov when the eclipse is for your time zone. The reason for the different dates of this Eclipse is time Zones. May 15 or May 16 depending on where you live.
Whenever we have a Full Moon it creates an awareness of what is going on in our world and our personal lives. Look to the house placement for more personal details. Where is 25 degrees of Scorpio for you? Find that and you will have a lot more to work with.
This Scorpio Moon is also connected to the ruler of Scorpio “Pluto”. This connection is going to intensify the qualities of this Scorpio Eclipse. (The first paragraph has all those key words if you want to pause here and go back and get them).
This Eclipse is also connected to Mars and Neptune both in Pisces in an easy connection which encourages the flow of emotions and heightens receptivity.
With so many planets involved with this eclipse in signs that are of the Yin polarity we have an abundance of openness and receptivity available to us. Those signs are Moon in Scorpio, Pluto in Capricorn, Mars and Neptune in Pisces and North Node and Sun in Taurus.
There is a huge opportunity to connect with your source, with your inner knowing and follow your path to enlightenment or to find your own personal Healer – Doctor – Shaman that will guild you alone your path.
All is well and good RIGHT? Well this is deep work, we need to face our shadow, the deeper issues most of us don’t want to face and this Eclipse could bring that to the surface for some work.
I can’t tell you exactly how that will look to each and everyone of you since we all are at different levels of enlightenment or understanding and depending on the location this eclipse happens in your natal chart will also give you a big clue as to what you are working on.
I will do a video on that. This eclipse through the houses for my Patreon Tier 2 and above.
Now I want to cover another factor at play with this Eclipse and that involves Saturn the Lord of structure, boundaries, limitations, government, rules and regulations to name a few. He is at the halfway point between the Sun and Moon “this eclipse” and that is a major event.
The Sun in Taurus is what we love, what we value, what's important to us. The Moon in Scorpio Lunar Eclipse is transforming, give us the ability to change, to see things deeply, to research, to go within.
Saturn in Aquarius will anchor all of these things in a new and unique way. A way that can create a sense of freedom but also unity for a cause you believe in. Plus a fresh and inventive way of approaching an old situation or circumstance.
So I want you to look at your chart if you know how, and even if you don't know how to read your Natal chart or find where the eclipse is for you, I want you to find some time to reflect. Take the deeper journey within, you know what's going on in your world. You know where the deeper issues are. These are the things that are changing and transforming and need your attention.
When there are events like this one, we cannot ignore them, please do what you can, where you can. The Eclipse we will be having in October and November will be even more powerful and transformative then this one so if you get started doing the work you know you need too now then Novembers’ eclipse will be an easy next step.
ON TO THE LUNAR GESTATION CYCLE
OK now let's look back in time since Astrology is always about cycles and patterns. Every New Moon begins a three-year lunar gestation cycle. I've talked about this for years now thanks to the groundbreaking work of Dietrich Pessin.
The New Moon that we had November 15, 2020 and the first quarter Moon that we had August 15, 2021 are related to this Full Moon Lunar Eclipse. With that being said I want YOU to look back to those dates.
November 15, 2020 what were you initiating consciously or unconsciously? Do you do New Moon wishes? What were they? If not at lease look at your journal or wall calendar for that month. What began then?
Nine months later was the First Quarter Moon August 15, 2021, this is when whatever was begun in November of 2020 would now feel like a lot of work, some stress, maybe even a struggle, however the hard work and stress will start to pay off at that first quarter Moon August 2021.
Now we come to our modern-day Full Moon Lunar Eclipse May 15/16 and we're at full awareness, full realization, full recognition; let's get things done. We are aware. We are ready to receive information so we can transform understand and regenerate. Release what is not working and focus on what is.
THIS IS A VERY POWERFUL OPPORTUNITY TO RELEASE WHAT HAS POWER OVER YOU AND TO TAKE CHARGE OF YOUR OWN TRANSFORMATION.
Could it get messy, YES but it is worth it.
This type of cycle is happening all the time so be sure an honor every New Moon for what it is so when the Full Moon 18 months later shows up in the same place as that New Moon you have had some time to work with the energies of the zodiac sign and house location and really create what you are looking for.
I am as ready as I can be, ARE YOU?
