Full Moon in Scorpio – May 16

May’s full moon, also known as the Flower Moon, was in Scorpio as of 12:14 am EDT today. It was preceded by a lunar eclipse last night around 10:30 pm EDT.

The Scorpio Full Moon is here to illuminate shadows and asks you to take a look around the corners of your heart.

You may have noticed patterns, beliefs and feelings come up during the last couple days or even weeks.

A Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse in the intense waters of Scorpio is an invitation to let the darkest caverns of your heart crack wide open and, in so doing, to let them heal.

This Full Moon offers us an opportunity to make quantum leaps in areas of our lives where we have felt stuck.

Scorpio is the alchemist that transmutes judgement to beauty. Trust what your body tells you. For many, it’s time to let it allllll go.

Rest and stay hydrated. Things are about to become much lighter for you.

Tonight’s spell includes rose petals (self love, love and passion), agrimony (protection) and spearmint (healing and removal of negative energy) inside a dish of water (healing, cleansing, banishing).

The paper included drops of my blood for added power.

Two of Cups – Unity, partnership, connection, close bonds, joining forces and mutual respect

This is the exact same card I pulled last month.

It generally indicates a strong connection and a balanced and equal partnership. Intertwined emotions and feelings are at play. A strong pair and the joy of two becoming one.

When it comes to work, you may notice that the people around you start to appreciate you more. If you are looking for new job opportunities, this card is a good sign.

In terms of love, the card represents commitment, a balanced relationship, and love. The card only signifies that true love and affection is present.

Interpreting this card on the night of a Full Moon in Scorpio and an eclipse, I see it as learning to LOVE yourself, wholly and completely — maybe for the first time in your life.

Scorpio is about bringing light to shadows. Rather than judge what you find, try compassion.
