Blessed Buddha Purnima
Full Moon in Scorpio
May 07, 2020
On May 07, 2020, a magnificent supermoon will illuminate the sky with our second supermoon of 2020. With this brings highlights of the Milk Moon in the northern hemisphere and Beaver Moon in the southern.
Not only is it a super full moon but is also transiting Scorpio/Libra at 17 degrees. The full radiance could be seen 6:45am EST and 3:45 am PST. It also brings the spiritual significance of Buddha Purnima.
Although Buddha Purnima is celebrated on different days around the world, in India it is celebrated as the first full moon in May according to the Hindu calendar. There is a beautiful story behind Buddhism, as they say, just like Hinduism, it’s not a religion but a way of life.
It has been conceived that full moons disturb our views of people and frequently make us short-tempered. The logical facts show that the mass of the water current against the moon is the basis of numerous sporadic behaviors in people. Water is attracted towards the moon when the moon is full which strengthens the pressure of water retention and hemorrhages around the world; including in people, places, and things.
But the full moon does not have to be bad at all. In VPAT (Vedic Philosophical Ayurvedic Theories), it is believed that the full moon brings light which opens humans’ eyes to realize that something must give. (Read more about it here)
Whether it is a new opening or a new ending it really does not matter, what matters is to understand why the world has stopped. Even though the poor are getting poorer, at least the richer are not getting richer during this pandemic. Then again, I had already anticipated something like this would happen. “Income inequalities were a growing concern in 2007 dividing the countries between the ‘Have’s and Have-not’s.’” Currently we have a soft housing market; could it be that there could be a Mortgage or Interest crisis that could cause things to rattle and shake again?

When we look back at the past once again this year, the moon is at the exact degree, date and similar time to the one in May 2001. So many things have similarities between 2001 and now that I am amazed that we are not learning lessons from the past. Maybe some do not recall the housing market issues in 2001. Perhaps it could be the mortgage interest which could cause the housing market to boom, while the stock market is barely making it. Though the stock markets are not in crisis mode as we now have overseers, many still have lost millions. Companies are filing Chapter 11 and small business are also going out of business due to COVID-19. I would say that is just as bad.
As the world rippled in fear of terrorist attacks in May 2001, now the world fears deaths due to COVID-19. Many Catholic universities closed due to funding or political issues, in May 2020, others may close for similar issues. As we continue to see that if we have not taken care of our budget properly in the last 10 years, surely these issues have risen now. Perhaps many of us do not remember but we were in a recession in 2001, and stimulus packages were handed out due to the tech bubble; now it is because of the pandemic. But the world bounced back stronger than ever, and perhaps the economy will now get a spiritual boost during this full moon. However, we know that the world, as we called it yesterday, will never be the same.
With Pluto, Venus, and Saturn retrograde, it is time to look at the past and see what we can change and what must be changed. Look at every relationship with a magnifying glass and work with your own ethics. Remember that something is hidden.
Some people may not feel the effects of this moon as it depends on several aspects. Primarily affected are those that have many planets in water, and they could find this full moon to cause headaches, fatigue, and possible sickness 5-7 days before and after the full moon. Additionally, if there is water in the chart, it is a double whammy.
Nonetheless, everything becomes immaculate and more focused under the light of the full moon – desire and confidence can become quite inflated, and we may have more grasp of, and a spotlight on, relationships. There is a good chance of getting a flow of energy from the light of the moon and having more luminous dreams.
Every month opens the avenue of change and transformation, as it highlights a specific celestial sign. What I bring to you is NOT astrology; rather, Vedic Philosophical Ayurvedic Theory based upon numerology, Ayurvedic theories, and predispositions. The planet’s determinate is not based on western or eastern ideologies, rather philosophical transformation.
If you are looking for an exact predisposition in your sign and how this moon will impact you, it may be advisable to seek out either a western or eastern astrologer.
For those other than Scorpio combination of the Lunar eclipse, Solar eclipse, and/or full or new moon in your sign to give a general predisposition. The predictions for Scorpio are based on the next 3-month prospect, however, it could very well change during the solar eclipse, lunar eclipse, and Mercury retrograde in the next few weeks.
Strong Scorpio, no matter what happens to the world, financially or in areas of career front, you must take all the strength and self-initiative to make your life better. You will soon recognize that you are able to over come obstacles as well as those who challenge you. But you must stay religious and be thankful for all that you have. You may even receive financial gains when you don’t expect it. Family life will be filled with great fun and laughter. But remember all will not be smooth sailing as it is now. Keep cool from mid-May to end of June. If you are in a relationship you will find happiness. Careful how you spend your money though there could be unexpected expenses until end of June. Take good care of your health and exercise as much as you can.
Saturn: You may become very lazy and won’t be able to meet deadlines. Financial front looks positive if you don’t spend beyond your means. Higher education will also go well
Rahu: You will regain your motivation and get your work done. Recognition for your hard work will also be possible. However, relationships could be difficult at this time.
Ketu: It is time to watch what you say and when you say it as it will cause problems with all relationships. Hasty decisions will not go in your favor
Uranus: People are changing before your eyes. Its best to maintain self-control rather than trying to control people. Put a smile on your face and you will bring wonders of people you can network with.
Chiron: This is the time for you to be a problem solver to everything in your life from work, health and finances. Time to look at life in a more well-rounded way
Jupiter: Financially you will do great however, looking new work may be difficult however family seems to be a support system for you at this time..
Dearest Scorpio. Now is the time to take religion, spirituality and education seriously. You will soon realize if you maintain control you will have the recognition and support from everyone. Any travel that you have for business will go well for you. A steady source of income will be there for you. But sometimes you worry too much, spend too much and you don’t rely on the universal power. Know you are blessed anything else does not matter.
Scorpio owns a mysterious and unavoidable nature. Feelings of deceit and revenge may rise, so special caution is needed to avoid brawls. The Scorpio full moon can be an element for unrestrained urges, which can often result in ferociousness or even damaging compulsions.
The moon in Scorpio represents Impetuous, Determined, Unbalanced, Valiant, and Vigorous energy. It is my suggestion for us to remain balanced. Because 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 and sandalwood oil and chant the Psalm 39.
You may also choose to recite a mantra every morning until the next moon cycle. The mantras can be hard to pronounce for many but are a powerful source of energy. For this year, I have chosen one official mantra for the Scorpio moon.
Om Aing Kleeng Sauh
(ommm iiing Kliing saaa uhaa)
A Vedic reading embraces an adjustable destiny and the forks that lay ahead for karmic changes. It also embraces how our own willingness to beautify and make changes allows prosperity and happiness in our lives.
Vedic reading is a pathway to changes and acceptable things in our lives whereas Astrology brings a foundation of the path. Together they bring a symphony of cohesion bringing peaceful resolutions.
Even though there may be plenty of anxieties and worries of the future, just remember until the world begins again or at least starts to move, our lives are at a stand still. Therefore, getting a reading on a whim or out of mere desperation or even hopelessness will only outcome negative results. Unless, you are seek counsel of a astrologer.
Wishing you a harmonious full moon.
