Scorpio - May 2019
How are you, lovely Scorpio?! Potent lunar energy is about to hit your sign in May, so fasten your seat belt and get ready for an emotional rollercoaster ride! The full Moon of the 18th is what we’re talking about, and her gift to you is to hold up a mirror to your life, so that you can get a glimpse of the whole thing, dark corners and all. If changes need to be made to turn you into a happier person, you will know what to do now. A situation could arise here where you are forced to see yourself as others see you, and this might be an emotionally vulnerable event, but again will help you to reflect on how you can improve the way you look after yourself or interact with those you love and care about. The Moon’s connection with Pluto at this time makes this a particularly transformational time for thoughts and opinions; there is potential here for an unexpected soul mate encounter with someone who will really alter your way of looking at the world.
Lilith makes a significant sign change this month, passing into your house of love and romance on the 7th. Lilith is a wild creature who wants you to pursue your passions and desires at all costs, with no regard for society’s standards and morals. As her influence takes hold therefore, you may begin to notice that you are less restricted and a lot more emotionally impulsive in your love choices. You will be following your heart now, and although this could raise an eyebrow or two among those who thought they knew you, it will also be an incredibly liberating experience, inasmuch as you will finally feel free to experience love on your own terms. Neptune offers support from this area to direct your focus a little; his connection with the Sun from the 6th to 16th is a highly romantic and compassionate time for welcoming inspirational new love into your life.
Your ‘to do’ list will receive a welcome uplift from Venus for the first fortnight in May, as the atmosphere around everyday work and routines becomes a little lighter and more amiable. Colleagues will be easier to deal with and interacting with bosses and other authority figures will be a piece of cake with your enhanced awareness of etiquette and social grace! Venus’s trine with Jupiter during the period of the 5th to 15th is excellent for making money from extra work or linking up with like-minded others who want to make more cash. This is a rather extravagant connection however, so it’s not the best of weeks for making important choices about spending. Difficulties with Saturn at this time might also send you additional responsibilities at work or home, which could make for a tiring and stressful time.
Mercury spends the days of the 7th to 21st in your house of partnerships, and this is a fantastic time for communicating with others. Traditionally this house tends to focus on love relationships, as these tend to be the most obvious partnerships in our lives. But it’s also a fortuitous period for communicating your needs to ex-partners and business partners, landlords, tenants and anyone you are linked to by a legal contract. You can build bridges here with your clear and concise expression of your needs and ability to put feelings to one side and deal logically with others’ demands, the days of the 14th and 20th when Mercury trines Saturn being particularly constructive. The new Moon of the 4th is positive for signing new contracts and reaching agreements. Enjoy your May!
