Back to Astrology….For those that have planets or angles close to 25 degree Scorpio by conjunction or opposition this will be a powerful supernatural related eclipse. The potential for mystical related events and inner reflection are high. Since Scorpio is a water sign and emotions are tied to water signs, this can be an emotionally impactful period remaining strong for about one month and potentially lasting up to a year.

Scorpio is also a very sensual sign and can indicate an emotionally intense period connected with sexual encounters. This is a rather dramatic and intense period where sensitivity is highlighted. There can be potential for conflict, disagreements and disputes as well as control issues. There could be an explosive element although the energies are softened by the trines from Neptune and Mars which are both conjunct in the sign of Pisces. Pluto is sextile in Capricorn.

The Conjunction of Mars and Neptune often produces some insight into mystical experience and a push for deeper understanding of spiritual pursuits. There is often a strong drive to open doors that might otherwise be closed.

This Full Moon Lunar Eclipse creates a time for release of Karma due to the influence of the Moon conjunct the South Node. Karmic obligations are now in motion and can be healed with the help of Neptune and Mars. There may be some control issues and the desire to strongarm life’s events that have been stifling progress. The culmination point may be from mid-May to mid-June. Pluto will add a regenerating aspect to this period and in many cases, what was set in motion will now be reaching fruition.

Saturn squaring this Lunar Eclipse will add a dimension of hard work. It will likely not be an easy period although with the proper insight and intuitive feedback which is highlighted you can make steps towards alignment that needs to be set in place. It will likely be an intense time when emotional concerns or events will unfold. Use these energies to equip yourself with what you need from a spiritual perspective and align with what is required of you.
