The Full Moon in Scorpio – A Time of Heightened Emotion
This May the Flower Moon will be significantly positive for Taureans, Cancerians, Virgos, Scorpios, Capricorns and Pisceans. However, all the other signs will probably find it more challenging.
Full Moons are always times of peak intensity and this month’s union with Scorpio on May 10 will see our feelings become so heightened that everyone will be affected in one way or another as they have the potential to become more critical and tactless. Be aware that sexual relationships often experience difficulty when the Full Moon is in Scorpio.
Since the end of March, energy has been building and the influence of Scorpio will see this accumulation of energy finally released. The result will be deep and profound changes. These changes may take us by surprise at first. The suddenness will be shocking.
Hidden motives will become apparent and secrets will be revealed, but when we really start to think about it we will come to understand that it was meant to be. We will see that the changes are something that are actually a natural development as our lives evolve.
Many close relationships, both personal and business, will come under the spotlight. Loyalty, fidelity and commitments will be questioned. It will be a time for taking stock of what may have been taken for granted and there could be some significant changes.
The Flower Moon is said to be the most sexy and romantic of all the full moons and the combination with the sensual sign of Scorpio has the potential to bring a deluge of drama and intrigue with it. However, a full moon in Scorpio will also provide the opportunity to escape from distractions and try to concentrate on achieving peace and balance.
Beware of extremes of behaviour during this time. There could be a tendency to either overreact or try to bury feelings. Neither is good!
In general, the Scorpio Flower Moon on May 10 2017 is a time for all the signs of the Zodiac to focus on the root causes of issues and decide what to do about them. So what does the Flower Moon have in store for each of the star signs, particularly with regard to romance and relationships?
The Flower Moon in Scorpio will make it challenging for Aries. They will feel off balance while they battle with inner struggles. At times it will feel as though there is a minor disaster waiting for them at every turn.
The Full Flower Moon may make Arians feel uncomfortable, but this will only last for a few days, when they will be able to relax more and take time to plan and make decisions.
This is not a full moon that will have much impact on Aries in matters of love and romance. The focus should be on finance and self-development.
Scorpio lies directly opposite Taurus on the Zodiac wheel, which means that those born under the sign of the Bull will be very affected by the Scorpio Flower Moon.
Do not make the mistake of assuming that this can be a bad thing!
Tauruses should use this time to concentrate on resolving problems in their relationships. They could even decide to walk away from relationships or commitments that no longer fulfil them.
The full moon is a perfect time to purge negativity from our lives, including giving up bad habits.
The Scorpio Flower Moon should be a productive time for Gemini. Time should be spent concentrating on finishing projects and using emotions productively, while not pushing themselves too hard – which is a strong personality trait in many Geminis (including this one).
This could wear us out and lead to an increase in negative energy. Something to watch for!
Cancer is one of the signs that will find positive benefits from the Scorpio Flower Moon. More creativity will come to the surface, which should not be ignored. Instead those born under the Sign of the Crab should use their creativity to the utmost and set about produce something amazing.
This is also the time to assess close relationships. Cancerians have the potential to grow even closer to those they love or, at the opposite end of the scale, they may find themselves ending associations with those with whom they no longer feel a close connection.
However, while all this is going on Cancerians should be careful of their tendency to cause drama as they could stir up unnecessary conflicts.
Fiery Leo could find The Flower Moon in Scorpio an intense time. Their frame of mind will determine whether they are drawn into feeling more passionate or loving or whether their more negative traits of revenge and jealousy will win the day.
For Leos who find themselves feeling emotionally sensitive it is a sign that they need to work on their inner strength and settle issues in the home or with members of their family.
The normally emotionally inhibited Virgo will find that the Flower Moon in Scorpio will make it easier for them to express their feelings. Virgos tend to hide their emotions too much and this is a time when they can unburden themselves and get things off their chests.
During this time Virgoans will be more perceptive. They will see through the words that people use and have a greater understanding of what they actually mean.
This is also the ideal time for Virgos to stay busy, stop procrastinating and finish off all the little projects and loose ends they have been putting off. Just do it!
Librans are constantly looking for balance, peace, and harmony and the Scorpio Flower Moon offers the opportunity for them to get their finances in order. Libra is blessed with good intuition but the Flower Moon might cause them to doubt their normally accurate instincts.
During this time other people’s opinions have the potential to make Librans question themselves or feel insecure. These inner negative thoughts need to be blocked out, so that Libra has a clear mind in order to be able to understand many of the seemingly inexplicable and mysterious events, that could be occurring around them.
While the May Flower Moon is in their sign Scorpio will reap what they sow. So be careful to ensure that the outcomes are positive!
While all the star signs could find this Full Moon intense and challenging, in many different ways, Scorpios will get double the dose and whether the effect is positive or negative, will depend on how they have been in the run up to the Full Moon.
It will go one of two ways and Scorpio will be either rewarded or punished. There’s the potential to make progress with the things about which they are passionate IF they have worked hard at it; or, if they have been uncaring, reckless or lazy then setbacks and delays will be the result.
During this period of intense and extreme emotions Scorpios need to take care not to let the darker side of their personality rule their actions and reactions – or it could come back to bite!
For Sagittarians, the Flower Moon in Scorpio will be a time of self analysis. Old emotions and deeper motivations and things from the past, that are no longer worthwhile holding on to, can be released.
Providing those born under the sign of The Archer can do this letting go, there will be a huge sense of relief as the weight is lifted from them.
However, there’s a word of caution….during this extremely introspective phase Sagittarius should take care at family gatherings, where there is the potential for family issues and problems to be come to the fore and be exacerbated.
Now is not the time for The Archer to be tactless!
Time to get off the fence Capricorn! This is the time to make some choices in several areas of your life in particular.
You can decide to settle outstanding issues with some of those around you or you may simply walk away from a friendship or group.That cause or dream that is on your mind? You could put more energy into it, or let it go.
This is the time to focus on what you would like to achieve in the future, to be sure of getting what you want. The Flower Moon in Scorpio sees a lessening of emotions in Capricorn, giving them the clarity of thinking, which they need to reach for their goals.
The Flower Moon in Scorpio can be either very positive for Aquarius or a total let down. It all depends how they approach it. There is definitely attention to be had, but it might not be the kind of attention they want.
Aquarians should choose their projects wisely and be honest about their motives and intentions, before taking them forward.
The Scorpio Flower Moon has the potential to be a positive for Pisces. There will be opportunities to finish various projects including study or settle legal matters.
If you are living away from home, this will be a time when you could return home.
You may also find yourself passionately defending your position on matters that mean a lot to you, including your beliefs. However, during this period of heightened emotions, Pisceans need to be fully aware and sympathetic of how other people feel too.
Take care Pisces, that you don’t end up in an argument or a few!
How is the May Flower Moon affecting you? Have there been any sudden surprises or shocks in your relationships?
