Full Moon in Scorpio activates Taurus/Scorpio polarity
This is a powerful Full Moon in Scorpio as it connects us to the Taurean principle of Holding on, with the Letting Go principle belonging to Scorpio. Letting go of the past is no easy task. With the lock down many of us are facing issues with isolation, and with relationships under a lot of pressure. Old family roles may be coming up for healing.
The planet that rules Taurus is Venus now in Gemini. Venus will go retrograde next week on 13th May and start to disappear from the Evening sky. Look west after sunset and you’ll see it shining brightly. Wish upon a star!
Scorpio has 2 planets associated with it. Traditionally this is Mars, currently in Aquarius. On 13th May it moves into Pisces.
Next week also sees Saturn and Jupiter go retrograde. These two planets going retrograde asks us to re-examine our values, attitudes, plans and projects.
Mercury is invisible but changes sign into Gemini on 11th May. This starts a process of logical clearer thinking. On 20th May the Sun moves into Gemini so communications will start to improve. This is good news because the media has had a field day with the Corona virus pandemic. Sad to say that social media is being bombarded with conspiracy theories.
Saturn in Aquarius
On 22nd March Saturn changed sign into Aquarius. This is symbolic of restricting freedom. It stays there until 2nd July as it retrogrades back into Capricorn so we may have some respite from the Covid-19 virus by then.
Fear weakens the immune system
Fear is now spreading as the Covid-9 virus infects the world. Panic buying is prevalent. How do we best respond? Fear weakens the immune system, so loving oneself, compassion and kindness is the most beneficial response.
Deepak Chopra says that fear doesn’t speak the truth. It only speaks fear. Take back your power and use the strength of Mars in Capricorn. Mars goes into battle with fear and panic by his side! He doesn’t let them stop him.
This affirmation can help us all connect with the Higher brain, rather than the fear based reptilian lower brain. “This is not the Truth. It is only making me afraid.” Repeat 3 times for the greatest effect any time you are feeling overwhelmed by the negative items in the news.
As Neptune travels through Pisces is ruled by the gas giant, Neptune, God of the Ocean, the Sea of Consciousness. We can float or drown in the ocean, and as every sailor knows, it has tremendous power. The the Covid-19 virus is symbolic in the collective of deep emotion, loss and grief.
Take heart that the light is there at the end of the tunnel.
Key Dates-It’s all changing in the next few weeks!
Sun in Taurus until 20th May when it enters Gemini.
Full Moon 7th May at 17 degrees Scorpio at 11.45 BST.
Mercury is now in Taurus until 11th May when it moves into Gemini-a sign it rules.
Venus is now in Gemini and goes retrograde on 14th May. Venus stays in Gemini until 7th August. Watch the sky after sunset to see Venus as an Evening Star before it disappears!
Mars is in the air sign of Aquarius. Mars takes approx. 2 years to travel around the zodiac and is boosting all the air signs- Gemini, Libra and Aquarius. The good news is that it’s now moving away from Saturn. It changes sign into Pisces on 13th May.
Jupiter is mainly in Capricorn until 20th December. Time to climb the mountain and make progress step by step. Think how the mountain goat is so agile as it climbs up and you get the idea. It goes retrograde on 15th May until 13th September.
Saturn moved into Aquarius on 22nd March until 2nd July when it re-enters Capricorn It goes retrograde on 11th May. It stays in Capricorn until 17th December 2020. Aquarius is the sign of community, of the brotherhood/sisterhood of man/woman. It’s a futuristic sign and ruled by the unpredictable energy of Uranus. The full impact of this shift in energy will come next year. One interpretation is the lockdown of communities. The positive is that communities are rallying around to support each other.
Uranus in Taurus is now direct until 16th August activating 5-10 degrees Taurus. Make some practical changes in your life and throw out anything that doesn’t bring you joy! There is a strong connection with Chiron the archetype of the Wounded Healer at this Full moon.
Neptune in Pisces favours all the water signs. Watch your visions and dreams, get creative and meditate. I love the meditations with Deepak Chopra as he uses simple sanskrit mantras. See Chopra Center Meditation .
Pluto in Capricorn. Pluto is an outer planet and affects world events. However it becomes more personal if it connects with one of inner planets in your chart. These are the Sun, Moon, Mercury Venus and Mars. It is activated at mid-life when it makes a square to itself around the age of 38.
