Heading towards a Scorpio Full Moon: Into the Light…

“When I turn towards you
in bed, I have a feeling
of stepping into a church
that was burned down long ago
and where only the darkness in the eyes of the icons
has remained
filled with the flames
which annihilated them.”

— Taken from ‘Our Love is Like Byzantium’ by Henrik Nordbrandt


We’re heading towards a powerful Scorpio Full Moon exact at 11:08 AM UT on May 17, 2011, so the Moon will be fullest on Monday night in most parts of the world.

This lunation takes place at 26+ Scorpio and the Sabian Symbol for 27 Scorpio reads, “A Military band marches noisily on through the city streets.” According to Dane Rudhyar the keyword for this symbol is “pomp,” and his Keynote reads: “The aggressive glorification of cultural values.”

As the Moon grows, it opposes Mercury and Venus in the last degree of Libra-Aries before it enters Scorpio at 4:31 PM UT, 12:01 PM EST on May 15, 2011. Also Mercury and Venus leave Aries and enter Taurus on May 16, 2011 and will sextile Neptune at the time of the lunation.

As the planets change signs and the Moon grows full over the next couple of days moving from Libra to Scorpio we can expect the emotional tide to intensify and rise, leading to a deep transformation and resurrection with important personal commitments, relationships especially sexual, intimate relationships and financial situations.

Once we are able to release darker energy, let go of painful attachments and emotional baggage, we can experience transcendence, clearing the way for a richer, sweeter and more divine reality to reveal itself.

Know your worth. And remember the darker the shadow, the brighter the light…

On a personal note, I returned from Goa a few days ago after a much-needed break away from the busy-ness of the city. It was nice to relax with an old friend, catch some sun and lay around in the sand watching the stars at night. We even saw a couple of shooting stars!

And more and more I realize how much I need this ‘space’ everyday and not just for a few stolen moments a year. With Aquarius on my IC — I’m never freer or more at home than under the stars and a wide-open sky.

Also, it’s my Solar Return tomorrow and as I look back, it’s been a long journey this past year and over these past few months of rediscovering myself. But with this Full Moon conjunct my Ascendant, I’m feeling the deep tug of surrender and look forward to the changes this will bring…

I’ll be back with more detailed astrology for this magical Full Moon, in the meanwhile, “Let go…”

With Love and Moonbeams,

TAURUS (till May 22, 2011)

“Venus your ruler enters your sign this week, and after a long period of groping through the dark you should finally start to feel like yourself again. But a Full Moon in your opposite sign, is intensifying an important relationship or situation revealing a deeper truth. A situation is changing profoundly and you are learning how someone truly feels about you, and equally importantly how you feel about him or her and how something makes you feel about yourself. Communication will be key to healing a situation but recognize the darker emotions you need to release, so there can be an honest exchange rather than letting opinions stand in the way of progress. Be fluid, but persistent and let go of expectations and preconceived notions of what something should look like, you will see just how fertile your reality is. You have friends and a kind Universe who wants to support you and a partner who is most definitely on your side. You are blessed, gifted, precious, beautiful and loved. The more you are able to open your heart – the more you will be open to having it touched in real and surreal ways. As you will see, dreams can come true.
