Full Moon May - Contemplative Choice.


The 27° Full Moon along the Scorpio-Taurus channel occurs on May 18th at 5:11 pm EDT. The tension between Scorpio and Taurus is the wisdom of simplicity versus that of complexity. 

The Full Moon in Scorpio relishes these intense waters nudging you to plunge deeply within; while the Sun in Taurus brings you to the surface to appreciate the sunlight. With this blend, you have the opportunity to easily integrate the depth with the surface, the simple with the complex and the penetrating with the surrendering. However, it also provides the prospect of drama, mistrust and lassitude creating sticky interactions and heavy impressions. 

Let’s explore the higher expression more fully while leaving the lower one for now. 

This Full Moon duality asks you how you like to analyze the psychological experience of your life. Do you accept things at face value or do you get to the bottom of things? 

Do you like to uncover the truth or would you rather let things go? Whichever you prefer will be tested by its opposite. 

Additionally, there are a few other aspects greatly influencing this Full Moon, namely the Mean Node blending with Saturn Rx and Venus kissing Uranus in Taurus. 

A few weeks ago, on April 30th the True Node point blended with Saturn Rx and now the Mean Node does. These are calculated points, the calculation you use determines the date of the exact configuration. I prefer the True Node only as it’s the first to ‘hit’ and highlights its expression, making it accessible sooner rather than later. 

So, here you are again reviewing your karma and accepting all of the choices you’ve ever made – in all of your lifetimes. How did you handle your relationships, love affairs and financial requirements throughout your lives? What impacts have these decisions had on you this lifetime? This is a tremendous occasion to explore, integrate and let go. 

There’s another huge opportunity! Venus and Uranus blend together in Taurus urging you to create freedom in your life to pursue what you truly value.Look at your choices in love, relationship, style and financial pursuits. What are you happy with and what would you like to change? 

There’s even more opportunity as Mercury kisses the Sun in support of Pluto Rx, giving you mental prowess and great power to actively engage in this activity. Pluto Rx offers influence, strength and authority to make the necessary changes in your life. 

Choose what to keep. 

Choose what to let go. 


This is about choice. 

It always is.

What do you choose to commit to in your life? What responsibilities do you accept?  Who do you choose to spend your time with and to love deeply? What value do you place on material goods? How do you integrate the complexities of life into simple solutions? 

I love this Full Moon for ALL of what it asks of you. 

Dive deeply. Let go. Contemplate. Take action. 

It provides a perfectly balanced offering for you. 

Take complete advantage.

As always, wishing you joy,
