Saturday, MAY 18
The Moon is Full in the sign of Scorpio today at 5:12 PM EDT, reminding us of the need to consider others’ support, contribution, needs, wants, and input, and possibly forcing awareness of relationship imbalances. If we’ve been focusing too closely on material and comfort needs, we may need this push to embrace intangibles and spiritual growth. Discoveries made now can have a magical or private quality to them.
This Full Moon occurs around the time of a Venus-Uranus alignment, adding to the elements of surprise and revelation. Its harmony with Pluto suggests conviction and willingness to make necessary changes, and with Saturn, points to an ultimate sense that we’re doing the right things for long-term growth and success. The Full Moon is a time of culmination, and with the Moon full and bright in the sky, symbolic illumination occurs in our lives. These new revelations are emotional ones, as feelings burst forth into our consciousness.
Venus and Uranus align today, and the need to express ourselves freely and openly is strong. This influence encourages us to let go of rigidity. We’re itching for a change whether we’re aware of this or not. Stimulation and newness are valued over permanence for the time being. We lose our fears of taking risks in love, with pleasure, and in social situations. Themes include infatuations, whims, gossip, and unanticipated opportunities socially or financially. We have a greater need for self-expression and social excitement.
The Moon is void from 5:12 PM EDT, with the Moon’s last aspect before changing signs (an opposition to the Sun), until the Moon enters Sagittarius at 9:22 PM EDT.
