Total Lunar Eclipse
Full Moon Lunar Eclipse at Scorpio 25°17’, May 16, 2022, at 12:13 am EDT.
Scorpio Full Moons are always intense and this one is a doozy. This will be a Total Lunar Eclipse, visible over a wide area, including most of the United States. This eclipse is the exit from the portal between two phases of experience. Our last phase lasted from December 4 to April 30; this next phase will last from May 16 to October 25.
This eclipse initiates the final chapter of the Saturn/Uranus square. The chart for this Full Moon is dominated by a T-square involving Saturn and the Sun/Moon opposition. The last square between Saturn and Uranus will take place from August through mid-November. The relationship between these two can be thought of as a birth process – one which began in January 2021 and is now coming to term. Something intense is building under the surface and will erupt in September and October.
The other dominating transit of recent times has been the Jupiter/Neptune conjunction in Pisces. Jupiter has now moved into Aries – a very different sort of expression for the principle of expansion. Mars – the god of war – is now in alignment with Neptune. The Pisces warrior is happiest when enforcing peace but will attack when feeling overwhelmed and confused.
Mercury is retrograde in Gemini. Mercury turns direct on June 3, in a square to Saturn - another incremental step toward the fourth and final phase of the Saturn/Uranus square.
We are building toward something – a grand finale of energies that have been gestating since January 2021. What does this mean in your life? Scorpio is very attuned to that which lurks under the surface. Exit this portal with awareness. Know what you want to manifest and bring to awareness any hidden motivations that may block your progress toward your goals.
