On May 7th, at 6:45am EDT, the Full Moon in almost 17.5 degrees of Scorpio becomes exact. The Moon in passionate, all-or-nothing Scorpio opposes the Sun in steady, peaceful Taurus. This is also another SuperMoon.

There are many Station phases going on simultaneously this month, as a lot of planets are starting their Retrograde phases. Pluto, the ruler of Scorpio, was the first one to go retrograde, on April 25th — and its Station phase will still last until May 17th, which makes this planet more exalted until then.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 15-19 degrees of Scorpio, Taurus, Leo, or Aquarius? If so, you are more affected by this month’s Full Moon. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).
