The Full Moon in Scorpio in opposition sun in Taurus is inclined to brooding moods and silence. Also, according to statistics, this months full moon sees mental asylums and police stations filled with more lunatics than usual. So keep your radar up for those who live on the edge of this fine line as some will surely tip over. Luckily Mars is not aspected in any adverse way, and he is only in the lower octave of Pluto – the ruler of the may full moon.
The Sun and the moon represent our ego and identity (sun) and our deeper self and our soul (moon). The divine masculine force and the divine feminine force in all their life giving ways. The may full moon in Scorpio pulls us deep into the underworld and the temporal reality of all things, whereas the Taurus sun brings in the practicality of everyday life. Somewhere in the middle is the balance we are being asked to walk, and what better time to do this so close to the May Day celebration of Beltane (N.H.) and Samhain (S.H.); the ancient celebration of the two that are the one.
Neptune lends a helping hand this month trining the moon and encouraging us to work with dreams and imagination. Moon square Saturn gives us the discipline to stay focused and structured whilst Mercury is in hard aspect to Neptune and Saturn, making sure we stay aware this month of right thought, right words, and right action.
This may full moon is a perfect time to perform ritual, to let go of the intense, passionate loves and hates of your past. Let go of the past hurts, resentments and the guilt. You can’t change the past so why let these wounds hold you back from a fruitful and loving future. Relinquish control. Hand it all over to the lord of the underworld and see what light is reflected from this deep and soulful full moon. © by Astrologer Jyoti Eagles
Full Flower Moon – May In most areas, flowers are abundant everywhere during this time. Thus, the name of this Moon. Other names include the Full Corn Planting Moon, or the Milk Moon.
Sunday, May 3rd – Full Moon in Scorpio
When the moon’s in Scorpio, we get focused. The mood broods, deepens, and grows a sultry, investigative, introspective edge. We lose patience with inessentials and are suspicious of inauthenticity; we may deal with primordial feelings, and need boundaries respected. It’s time to prune, water, dig, investigate and contemplate.

Waning Moon in Capricorn
When the moon’s in Capricorn, our work beckons. The mood is competitive, task-oriented, managerial, organizational, and serious. It’s time to set and achieve short-term goals towards long-term horizons. Focus on one’s personal best, set and accomplish clear, achievable short-term goals. Support one another’s work, build structure and find the humor within.

Venus enters Cancer
Venus is our recognition of love, art and beauty. Venus is harmony in it’s expressed form, as well as compassion, bliss, and acceptance.
MoonCat @ Mother Tongue Ink 2011
Cancer Sun, you’re an emotional leader; you can teach us to nurture ourselves and others, though you’ll need to learn self-care and to believe in your own enduring strength. Caring, creative, protective and self-protective, you swim best in the depths.

May 11, Mars enters Gemini / Waning Moon in Aquarius
Mars is our sense of “Get Up and GO!” It is the capacity to take action and do; it represents being in motion. It can also affect our temperament.

This May new moon has the potential to be a very deep, mystical, magical and a visionary experience. And after the intensity of the Scorpio may full moon and the end of the eclipse season, the field begins to settle mid-month.
Mercury will have moved into Gemini and we will have wings on our dancing shoes. With Mercury in Gemini and Venus in Cancer trining Neptune on the 17th May, we have a marvellous moon for spell-making and seed planting.
In your New Moon Ritual may 2015, visualise the pattern as an arrow head with Venus at the point, Pluto providing the thrust and Mercury / Jupiter as the barbs or guidance system. Contemplate what it is that you want to achieve or let go of and aim this arrow at your passion or desire, thrust with full power and watch it fly to the target. By the June full moon you should have some kind of reply from the sky gods. © by Astrologer Jyoti Eagles
