FULL MOON LUNAR ECLIPSE
5 May 2023
11:33am mountain time
15 degrees Scorpio
I’ve been feeling this eclipse coming on and the mischievousness of Mercury retrograde. Paying attention to all signs, messages, and divinely orchestrated encounters. The eclipse will be exact tomorrow morning mountain time but the moon will look way full tonight
for your late-night moon viewing pleasure. I think some howling is on the program for tonight, for sure!
Eclipses are intensified trigger points for change and growth. During a Full Moon eclipse the Earth will be in between the Sun and the Moon, casting a shadow on the moon. Where the eclipse falls in your chart is where you will naturally feel drawn to make some changes in your life. If the eclipse hits a planet or point in your chart between 12 and 18 degrees Scorpio – that’s a direct hit – you are on the way to experiencing certain things in your life in a new way, clearly noticeable 3 to 6 months from now – mid-summerish.
Even if the eclipse does not make a direct hit in your chart, noting where the eclipse is influencing your chart will help you focus your attention on what needs changing. As you consciously direct your focus of attention, you become aware of your creative potential.The more you feed your creative potential, the more you will be aligned with your power, the better you will be able to attract what is aligned with your highest good. I really want that – for all of us. It’s all about proper alignment!
A lunar eclipse in the mid-degrees of Scorpio invites you go scuba-depth into the hidden areas of your own emotional nature. What do you really want to experience emotionally and are you allowing that into your life? Or maybe you have too much drama and in your life and you want to simplify to more peace? Whatever it may be, a lunar eclipse is a re-boot in your emotional realm. Allow for the re-boot to align more actively in your life. It’s time!
Uranus conjoins the Sun at the eclipse and will make an exact conjunction at 19 degrees Taurus on May 10. LOTS of new, unexpected, and potentially liberating things are right at the door! Answer the door when the bell rings. Genius is being unleashed big time.
Mercury is retrograde until May 15th. Take it all with a good giggle – or really, you’re missing the whole point.
I’ve been digging deep during this eclipse period, being quiet with myself, hushing much outside chatter. I can feel shifts occurring on a very deep level, in the process of becoming. Not just for me. For all of us. A deep and profound shift in the field of consciousness. This is such a good thing!
As part of receiving the NEW I am consciously dumping whatever needs to go to make room, abundant room!, for the NEW. I am hearing this in the grapevine from friends and clients – things are being tossed! recycled! re-used! Old energy is leaving, making room! So if you find yourself sorting through things, moving things out, refreshing your space – inside and out- you are in good company! Saturn transiting Pisces loves this type of clean-out. If you have Saturn in Pisces moving through the 12th house (the Pisces house) these days you may be doing double duty clean-out.
The most important things to flush out of your life are any objects or thought/memories, that make you feel sad or wistful or just plain dissatisfied with your own precious self on your unique, unfolding journey. Letting go of judging yourself – whew! that’s enough right there! Just THAT will set you off on a way more interesting, and potentially fulfilling life. And is that not what we each want? A life where you can fulfill your essential potential? I think so!
