Full Moons always bring a hint of mystery and captivating energy to the scene.
They illuminate the dark and help us gain awareness in places we weren’t necessarily looking. Similar to tuning in a radio that’s fuzzy, Full Moons have a tendency to help us tune into certain aspects of our lives and gain clarity. They can reveal mysteries that have been lurking and help us hear and see things more clearly.
May’s Full Moon takes place on May 3rd, 2015 and falls in the dark and mysterious sign of Scorpio. It gives each of us the opportunity to tune in, shine a light and gain some new insight.
Given that the Sun and Moon oppose each other at the time of a Full Moon, there is always a pull between the energy of two signs. Taurus (the sign the Sun is in) and Scorpio (the sign the Moon is in) are polar opposite and each influence will come into play.
Scorpio is the sexy, controlling, mysterious and possessive sign that’s always thinking about what’s beneath the surface. She loves a challenge, dives deep and is driven to get to the bottom of things. Her energy doesn’t fear the dark. She will always press on to see what truths can be revealed and how much control she can gain.
“Never die wondering” is her motto.
Her energy is a battle ground of emotion because of all the twists and turns she takes us through.
This side of the equation will be pushing us to tune in and help find what we need to get ahead and gain control. We’re all working towards something—looking for our next accomplishment and looking to get somewhere. Scorpio loves power and can do whatever it needs to in order to get it. If you know what it is you’re seeking to be more in control, this Full Moon will help you see it more.
If you don’t, then some insight is in store.
Taurus on the other hand doesn’t like to rock the boat and feels her best when she’s surrounded by light and beautiful things. Beauty always catches her eye and makes her turn. You’ll always see her gravitate towards something pleasing to the eye or senses. She could care less about gaining control or power because she has better things to do with her time. Feeling grounded, having stability and being surrounded by peaceful serenity are what she’s about.
She wants what she wants and doesn’t like compromise.
This side of the equation is going to be pushing us to see what we really want and crave to feel comforted. Sure we all have goals and things we want to do—but we also like the ease of knowing our surroundings and not being pushed too hard. This Full Moon could begin to help you see what you’re actually willing to do to get something.
Scorpio whispers, “Come with me and see what’s over here…” in one ear, while Taurus whispers “Don’t bother…stay here where it’s peaceful, calm and safe…” in the other.
Where is it that you really want to gain some ground? What does it take to make you feel comforted and safe? Sometimes the answers to these questions are lurking beneath the surface in our unconscious and we have no idea how to answer. The beauty of this Full Moon is that the potential will be there for you to tap into your unconscious and see things you didn’t realize you wanted. It’s time to shine a light on whatever is dark.
There will be a lot of other planetary influences pushing us to get the answers we need. A driving combination between the Sun, Jupiter and the Moon will be ramping up energy big time. If you’re looking for a driving force to get you motivated to do something—this is it. Major things can be accomplished and you might even surprise yourself with the burst of energy you feel as a result.
However, there’s a dark side to this influence to be aware of and Scorpio wouldn’t have it any other way. The potential to take on way too much or go overboard will be calling if you’re not careful. It’s also important to be aware of other’s viewpoints and try to be as open minded as possible.
There’s a hint of stubborn influence in the air given the heavy Taurus pull.
Mercury, Saturn and Neptune will also make a big reveal. Intuition and the ability to empathize will be high as a result. These planetary influences will heighten emotional power and help us to see other sides of the story. Issues from the past might make a new showing and important events long gone could crop up again. There’s a real opportunity here to confront things hidden in our unconscious and find ways to heal wounds from the past.
While the answers you get may not be the ones you seek, there are benefits to be gained. Both the Sun and Pluto will be working nicely together helping to give us confidence and see our way through the shadows. The Moon, Neptune and Chiron will also be pushing us to process new revelations and bring a healing component into our psyches.
However it plays out for you, there’s a mystery that’s been in the making and new information about it could come into your awareness. It’s time to shine a light in whatever has been dark and discover some truths that were now meant to be seen and heard. Everything reveals itself when it’s supposed to.
Tune in and see what this Full Moon reveals to you.
