On May 5th, 2023 we have a Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse at 14° Scorpio.
The eclipse is a South Node Eclipse. South Node Eclipses are the culmination of our past actions: some things may come to fruition. Other things may come to their natural end.
The Full Moon Eclipse in Scorpio is opposite Uranus and Mercury retrograde in Taurus, and is trine Mars in Cancer.
With Uranus and Mercury retrograde, things may not go as planned. But sometimes when things don’t go as we want them to go, this doesn’t mean they don’t go as they should.
Perhaps you can remember a time in your life when things didn’t go as planned, but turned out better than expected.
You got fired but a few weeks later ended up in a much better job. You missed your flight, and met someone who changed your life.
During the Eclipse season, things like this happen ALL THE TIME. In fact, that’s exactly what the role of an Eclipse is: to change the course of things so that a better, superior order is found.
Lunar Eclipse In Scorpio – At Crossroads
Eclipses happen when the Sun and the Moon align with the Lunar Nodes.
The Lunar Nodes are points where the path of the Sun and the path of the Moon intersect. The Sun and the Moon are our identity. The Lunar Nodes are crossroads. When we deviate from our life purpose (Sun and Moon), the Lunar Nodes (and the eclipses) come to bring us back on track.
More than ever, at an Eclipse we want to go with the flow rather than against it. The eclipse season is not a time to “try harder” or to stick to our plan “no matter what”.
Eclipses are a time of adjustment. This is a time of noticing the gentle (or not so gentle) nudge that the universe is giving you.
Just think of the astronomy of an Eclipse. At a Solar Eclipse, the shadow of the Moon covers the disk of the Sun. The day becomes night. At a Lunar Eclipse, the shadow of the Earth covers the Moon.
Things are no longer the same – neither in the spiritual 5D world, nor in our material 3D existence. Life turns upside down. We can’t prevent an Eclipse from happening. Whatever is meant to be, will find its way to come into existence.
Full Moon And Lunar Eclipse In Scorpio – Fight Vs. Surrender
When we try to control our circumstances, we fight with the universe. And if you’re in a fight with the universe, who do you think will win?
When we say “universe” this is not some external force outside of ourselves. You are part of the universe. So when we try to control our circumstances, we’re in a war with ourselves.
When we try to control our circumstances we are trapped in our little personal bubble. We are disconnected from the universe. We can’t even see what’s happening around us. When we let go of control we finally see the signs that have been there all along.
The universe is ALWAYS trying to help us. The Universe is ALWAYS showing us the signs. But we are blind. We don’t want to see them because they go against what we think reality is.
Even the most amazing opportunity is seen as an “obstacle” because it doesn’t go according to our inner narrative or what we think we should do.
Taurus And Scorpio – A New Paradigm
With Taurus and Scorpio, it may be more difficult to see the signs and be open to change. Taurus and Scorpio are fixed, stubborn signs. Their role is precisely to preserve the status quo.
The Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio may test your boundaries and resilience. Here the goal is not to be less of a Taurus, or less of a Scorpio. But at this Lunar Eclipse, we want to reinvent our relationship with these energies within our psyche.
Scorpio can be the sneaky manipulative partner who plays the victim to gain control over the relationship OR the loyal companion who stays through thick and thin not for personal gain, but because they know that intimacy can only emerge when 2 people meet each other halfway.
Taurus can be the stubborn, lazy Bull who says “no” just because there’s too much hard work to change, OR the firm boundary setter who knows that value creation requires focus and determination.
Full Moon And Lunar Eclipse In Scorpio – See The Signs
“I was blind but now I see”
Mercury is retrograde. At the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio we may feel we’re walking blindfolded. We may not have all the information.
And that’s a good thing. Because the information you’re so much relying on may be your own outdated narrative.
Not having to listen to the same old story (Mercury) means you create space for new insights and new perspectives (Uranus). It means you’ll finally be able to see the signs.
The Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio is an incredible opportunity to let go of toxic clinging to what no longer serves us.
At the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio, allow Uranus and Tarurus’ common sense energy to show you a new way, a better way to conduct your life.
This can be as easy as saying “no”. Or “yes” – depending on the circumstances. As easy as believing that a different outcome is possible for you. But you have to be open to listen.
You have to be open to see the signs.
