The Full Moon in Scorpio, May 7th, 2020
The Fifth Full Moon of 2020 brings a glimmer of light in the darkness and conveys the message of hope and the opportunity for a better world for all of us.
The previous New Moon of April 22nd, 2020 was conjunct Uranus in Taurus and squared Saturn in Aquarius. This hard aspect brought disappointing news, the cause of resistance and unrest.
After six long weeks of fear, sadness and restrictive measures due to the Corona pandemic,
this Full Moon in Scorpio of May 7th, 2020 finally brings some good news!
The Full Moon of May 7th, 2020 falls on 17º20 on Taurus/Scorpio only aspects Mercury and Neptune.
This time, there are no influential fixed stars with this Full Moon.
So, this Full Moon conveys a spiritual, harmonious and healing message through the hopeful aspect of Mercury in Taurus sextile Neptune in Pisces, perhaps embracing hopeful news against better judgment….
The almost exact opposition of the Full Moon in Scorpio and Mercury in Taurus is about communication and understanding.
However, this opposition between the Full Moon and Mercury makes us very sensitive to vibrational energy from other people and the environment. Thus, an inner conflict can arise between thoughts and words, which can lead to confusion, misunderstanding, polarized thinking, fear or prejudice.
The psycho-emotional power of this Scorpio Full Moon is a stormy Full Moon of extremes.
The opposition of the Sun in Taurus and the Moon in Scorpio makes us aware of our deepest desires and inner struggles to fulfill them.
The Astrological Ruler of Scorpio is Pluto.
The plutonic primal force that lives in all of us can help us to rise like a phoenix from the deepest valley. It gives you the power to resist extreme emotions such as hatred, anger and envy and turn these thinking patterns into love and understanding.
Mercury sextile Neptune calms, soothes, comforts and puts things into perspective.
Understanding and processing deep feelings is therefore an important theme with this Full Moon.
Trust your intuition. Dreams can be predictive.
Take the time for reflection to get in touch with your inner feelings.
The influence of this Full Moon of May 7th, 2020 lasts two weeks until the New Moon in Gemini of May 22nd, 2020.
Blessed Full Moon!
