On May 18th at 5:11pm EDT, the Full Moon in 27.5 degrees of Scorpio becomes exact. The Moon in passionate, all-or-nothing Scorpio opposes the Sun in steady, peaceful Taurus.

The last month has been filled with intense cosmic attention, directed towards what’s working (and what isn’t) in our lives at this time; this was related to the Station phases that have been activating trauma residues, clearing cellular memories, and giving us an opportunity to restructure our consciousness.

This Full Moon shows us how far we have come, as well as what we must still release or transform, if we are to manifest what was begun at the time of the New Moon that occurred on May 4th.

For the next two weeks, we seek the balance and integration of two polarities — and are more aware of something that needs to be brought into alignment. The balance in question is between our physical attachments, aversions, and connections — symbolized by Taurus— and our emotional attachments, aversions, and connections (Scorpio).

The time of any Full Moon is always more extroverted and emotional; this particular one invites us to let go of fears or disempowering behaviors, and thereby break through to the next level of our evolution.

So, here’s this Full Moon’s central question: Are we living in alignment with our values, with what makes us happy and satisfied? As a society, as people, as individuals… Do we feel empowered and emotionally fulfilled?

All right, let’s look at the signs involved in this polarity, beginning with Taurus

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 25-29 degrees of Taurus, Scorpio, 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).
