Full Moon in Scorpio
May 05, 2012
By Maharani Rutan
On May 05, 2012, at approximately 11:35pm EST and 8:35pm PST we will have the most magnificent sight in the sky. The skies will shine with the super moon in Scorpio at 16 degrees plus or minus 6 depending upon the orb.
Super moon happens when the moon is almost at 90 degrees from the earth, though no one can really know what it feels like to have a moon so bright and close to the earth. Some say the worlds disasters happen during the super moon. Some blame the super moon for the sinking of the Titanic and some say the last time was January 15, 1930 with the minor disturbance of earthquakes.
“May’s full moon occurs on May 5, at 11:35 PM EST, at 16 degrees of Scorpio, and it is considered a ‘Supermoon.’. A supermoon is when a full moon makes its closest approach to the earth on it’s elliptical orbit leading to the term coined by Astrologer Richard Nolle 30 years ago. Some astrologers believe supermoons may be associated with increased risks of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.”Leslie Hale
Some scientists predict the shape of the moon like this was on March 19, 2011 and it would repeat again on May 06, 2012. This means it could be determined that gravitational pull could cause a surge of water which caused the March 11 tsunamis in Japan? According to astrologers, and scientist there are a total of 4 super moons in 2012, which are April 06, 2012, May 06, 2012, June 04, 2012, November 14, 2012 and December 13, 2012. Which means two of these moons happen during a major eclipse period June 04 and November 14. So does this mean that we will have natural disasters 4 times a year when dealing with water or tides? Personally, I say not. Sometimes in life everything does not revolve around logic. Rather a wakeup call from the higher power to appreciate what we have rather than take an advantage of it especially when it comes to the Planet Earth.
However, in the eyes of Vedic readings, this moon will be very significant to Scorpios. Trust me when I say anything goes. Having 4 planets in Scorpio and the sun, the moon, and Neptune is crazy enough. But fearing just adds to the negativity, keeping in mind this moon is about rebirth, regeneration and integration.
“This spring’s Wesak Full Moon in Scorpio is a “Super Moon” in close perigee to the Earth. Emotional tides are on the rise, and relationship completions pave the way for new beginnings following the Solar Eclipse in Gemini on May 20th. It’s best to know what we value before wading into the water, as powerful lunar currents stir human emotions and natural phenomena this month” Lee Stillwaters
Pluto rules Scorpios which dominates areas of darkness and light. It is a flare between good and evil. Scorpios drive on intensity, passion and mystery. Therefore, if any one has the sun or the moon in Scorpio this event will be even more intense than any other. Ask yourself how much you can burn or rather salvage. From ashes to ashes Phoenix will rise.
Keep in mind that just because a chart does not have a sun in Scorpio does not mean that this moon will not affect you. As a matter a fact, if there are any planets in Scorpio it will be ignited by this super moon. Do I have your attention now?
For Scorpios and ascendants of Scorpios, you may have misunderstandings with your partner, there is something concealed – it was not really hidden but it was chosen to be overlooked. Whatever you find out it should be of no surprise. But, if you are in a healthy relationship and married it could mean that you have the edge this month, communication with your partner will be warm and close. If you are not married, an engagement or a wedding is in the air for some of you. What ever it is, romance has no shortage.
“This moon works best for water and some earth signs. Scorpio is the most intense of signs, so nothing about this moon will be superficial. Scorpio is associated with sex and Mercury sextiles Venus giving this full moon potential for connecting with someone special or a positive time for your social life! Unfortunately, on the same day Mercury opposes Saturn. Oppositions mean the problem generally comes from another individual, so it is through interaction with others or communication with others you may feel limited. The transit is tiring, and will have a greater affect is it is hitting a personal planet in your chart at 23-24 degrees of Libra/Aries. The transit moves quickly, only a few hours in duration. My advice is to try and go with the positive!” Leslie Hale
When the Moon is full, the gravitational pull between the Moon on one side of the earth and the Sun on the other has a great affect on our own bodily water levels, as well as the earth’s. Many may not feel the effects (depending on how powerful the Moon is in your Astrological chart), but there is no doubt that this energy creates an inner pull, fullness – and may help us to connect psychologically with others.
Everything becomes clearer and more intense under the light of the Full Moon – emotions and egos can become quite inflated, and we may have more consciousness and focus on relationships. There is a burst of energy from the light of the moon and perhaps there may even be more vivid dreams that night. Bleeding and hemorrhaging are more likely during a Full Moon, so take care. This is the time to Harvest, Pray and be Thankful, and to work on fertility and prosperity.
Love and Romance go wild under a Full Moon, especially around midnight. In a full moon you may become highly objective, clear minded and aware of your own needs and the needs of others. Traditionally, the early Europeans knew that the full moon was a time for plants and herbs to be harvested and dried as the richness of the first harvest was realized.
In Native Lore, Full Moons are known as the moon of ripening sweet berries. As ripe berries were gathered and used for paints, dyes and as a source of Vitamin C. Health and creativity are emphasized and there is a sense of well-being and drama to this lunation.
The Moon in Scorpio marks a time of powerful passion and desires. People may be feeling more forward and more challenging, as well as being provoked and practical. In general, emotions at both ends of the spectrum are discriminating and likely to vary quite a bit throughout this influence. Connections on a deep level could be made with members of the opposite sex with the Moon in Scorpio.
Represented by the Scorpion, Scorpio possesses a secretive and penetrative nature. Feelings of jealousy and revenge may arise, so special caution is needed to avoid confrontations. The Scorpio Full Moon can be a catalyst for power urges, which can often result in violence or even homicidal impulses.
Mars is still in Virgo which is the practical side of masculine powers and Pluto shows very strong desires. People often can become hostile, critical, impatient and changeable while the Moon is in Scorpio. There is a marked increase of intensity and a highlighted sensitivity to personal offenses and insults.
Remember that Scorpio has a suspicious and secretive nature. Avoid social complications. Beware of jealousy and watch out for the Scorpio Sting. Please remember to forgive and forget. Be cautious interacting with the opposite sex. However, this could be a good time for intense assimilation with another on a deep emotional level!
Since the moon in Scorpio represents Headstrong, Willful, Hot-Tempered, Brave, and Energetic, it is my suggestion for us to remain balanced. This full moon is extraordinary to many signs. It is my suggestion that you purchase a white candle and carve your name through to the wick. Anoint the candle with lavender oil sandalwood and chant the psalm 39.
You may also choose to recite a mantra every morning until the next moon cycle. Remember that with all applications of psalms and mantras achieving the desired result is depended upon the quality of intention, and when it comes to finding satisfying relationships, it is of the greatest importance to begin with a clear understanding of what your goal should be. The mantras can be hard to pronounce for many but it is a powerful source of energy. The mantra for Scorpio moon is:
“Om Angarakaya Namaha”
(Om An-ga-ra-ka-ya Na-ma-ha)
This mantra is to call to the lord of peace and removal of any obstacles in your way.
The intention of this mantra is the to keep up in balance and from losing our temper through darkness and unfocused energy
With every moon cycle, remember to cross out the old affirmation even if there is a slightest change and create new ones. The perfect number for aspiration is 10. This means to list 10 aspirations and recite them every night until the next moon cycle. Remember never make the affirmations beginning with “I need”, it must be worded “I will need to be shown how to retain”
Please remember I am NOT an astrologer, rather, a Vedic reader which incorporates Astronomy, Astrology and Vedic tendencies to build the most accurate readings which lead the pathway to change and reliance.
It is my suggestion that prior to getting a reading from me, I would suggest you contact one of my recommend astrologers Leslie Hale or Lee Stillwaters and have them lead you to your conclusion and let me be your guide to avoid pitfalls.
This moon is just the stepping stone for the catalyst change of communication and rebirth. With Venus about to retrograde May 15 through June 27, 2012, this will be a time for breakup or restructuring intimate relationships. If you are in a strong relationship it will survive however, weak relationship may end under this influence. This month long period will give a wakeup call to see if the relationship needs to change and if so how. During this time also hold on to your money as Venus also rules money and other people’s money which means don’t purchase things that are not affordable. Lastly, don’t be surprised if an old lover or an ex decides to stop by for a visit. When Venus is retrograde it is also about repayment of past karmas so be very careful with your words. Since words are irreplaceable.
“May 15th: Venus stations retrograde in Gemini. The status of relationships can change with little or no notice as Venus shifts into reverse motion in the Mercurial sign of Gemini. Venus will remain retrograde in Gemini through June 27th presenting us with an opportunity to discuss and think through any relationship decisions before taking action.” – Lee Stillwaters
May comes with many punches, twists and turns; look for articles to help you through the roughness and guide you through spiritual awakenings. Especially for those who have fixed, and air signs in their charts. The Full moon focuses on great endings and New moons focus on new beginnings however, tied with the solar eclipse, it is more transformative than anything else. Especially during the eclipse on May 20, 2012, when we are forced to transform something that is not working. The effect will be felt by early born air signs.
“May 20th: Sun enters Gemini and New Moon/Solar Eclipse in Gemini. The annual Gemini cycle begins with a Solar Eclipse in the very first fraction of a degree in the sign of communications. Those with planets or house cusps in the first five degrees of the mutable signs of Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces will experience the greatest effects from today’s Eclipse” Lee Still waters
May this moon be as super as it seems and allow the transformation to take over through spirituality and understanding.
