You made it!
This week sees the last of three supermoons rise in the sky. You made it to the end of this little cluster of Astro-intensity!
After three cycles and three peak phases of dramatic fullness and energy, this Full Moon will likely be the most profound of all. Falling in Scorpio, the fixed water sign of power, money, sex, and transformation, this could very likely be the spotlight of the year. Are you ready?
This month’s Full Supermoon Will Rise at 17º of Scorpio, on May 7th at these times across the Globe:
- 03:45 Los Angeles
- 06:45 in New York
- 11:45 in London (BST)
- 12:45 in Paris / Johannesburg
- 13:45 in Moscow
- 16:45 in Delhi
- 18:45 in Hong Kong
- 19:45 in Tokyo
- 20:45 in Sydney
- 22:45 in Auckland
Scorpio: Time for those Secrets to be Revealed…!
Even if you know hardly anything about astrology, chances are you know about Scorpio.
It’s renowned for its intensity: the probing vision, deep-digging ways and inability to do small talk. Have any Scorpios in your life, and you’ll appreciate how they always want to hear about your innermost desires and the seat of your childhood trauma, before you’ve even poured the tea!
Here, it’s the Moon in the sign of Scorpio. So that deep and penetrating energy is flavoring our collective emotional experience right now.
Whatever else is showing up in your personal horoscope, this is something we’re all going to feel. Plus, as a Supermoon – meaning that the Moon is very close to the point of perigee on her orbit – emotional intensity and drama could very easily occur. No exceptions.
With Pluto as this Zodiac sign’s planetary ruler, issues of power are also likely to flare under this Scorpio Moon. Your power, other people’s power, everybody’s power… And in these current times of enforced limitation of personal freedom, powerlessness is a real thing. Sure, everyone’s locked up at home just like you, but that doesn’t mean the issues it raises, felt in your emotional and physical bodies aren’t real.
This Moon phase also brings illumination, and opportunities to look closely at the truth. Here in Scorpio, that truth is likely to be buried deep. SO deep that you normally don’t even know its there. Yet this zodiac sign also offers the space and time to look into what you find. It’s fixed (just like sister signs Taurus, Leo and Aquarius) so it won’t look away. You’re being encouraged by this Moon phase and astrology, to stay here too – to gaze into your inner world, to follow that Full Moon spotlight, and hold the space for your own emergence.
Stay here long enough, and Scorpio offers transformation.
It may not be comfortable, but what venom is? The sting in the Scorpion’s tail is rightly feared, yet this astrology offers it as a catalyst for change.
These times are transformational. Yet the pathway this Full Moon offers you is through the dark territory of discomfort, shadow, and secrets. This is transformational astrology, for transformational times. Do not let it pass you by.

Scorpio Full Supermoon May 2020 Forecast
Funny how this Scorpio Supermoon is coinciding with (for most in the western world) the second month of mass lockdown due to Covid-19. This pivotal time in our evolution, when there’s literally nowhere else to look but into our truth.

You MUST Look Within
Pluto stationed retrograde on April 25th, leading the way in the calendar of retrogrades. The planetary ruler of this Zodiac sign, the small but mighty mythical God of the underworld will slowly slide his way back through Capricorn from now until October 5th. Which means 5 long months of this drilling down.
Astrologers will tell you that retrogrades mean changing tack, reviewing progress, and pulling back on action. They turn the collective gaze inwards, and Pluto likes nothing better. So unlike the frenetic mishaps and crossed wires of a Mercury retrograde, this Planet does his work unraveling us from the inside out. But before you cringe, wondering if you can take any more, realize that this is Pluto’s way of offering rebirth.
This month’s Supermoon is a springboard for the kind of soul searching you’ve been meaning to do since the days of lockdown began. This astrology is telling you to stop looking the other way. Your emotions are signposts, and what you hold within, in that deep place you barely dare to look, is what will form the bridge to the new earth we are all dreaming into being.
Start Walking Your Talk
At 20º of Taurus, Mercury is conjunct the Sun, which sits right opposite the Moon in Scorpio. This speedy little planet is slowed down in earth sign Taurus. And this offers HUGE encouragement to us all do the same, to ground our ideas into being. It’s all well and good discussing things (and boy, does Mercury like to talk!) yet nestled in here, close to our life-giving Sun, it’s time to cultivate.
Remember that this moon cycle began with the New Moon in Taurus, back in April, so this, practical energy is still fueling you, through each Moon phase, from New Moon through first quarter, last quarter, and back to dark.
She wants you to DO.
- What practical actions can you begin to take at this phase and beyond, to start walking your talk?
- That life you’re dreaming of when this all ends? How can you bring it into being, today?
Neptune in Pisces is a dreamy transit, we know this because the planet of the subconscious has been here since 2011. Right now, Neptune at 20º of Pisces trines the Moon at 17º of Scorpio. This deeply psychic and intuitive aspect is feeding into the magic of the Supermoon. Because do not forget, even in the dark and underworldly shadows of emotion that follow Scorpio around, there is magic in the air at the Full Moon. This aspect brings the potential for sixth sense awareness to rise to the top. SO let go of your tight, tight grip on this life, and dive into the possibilities of another life, more wonderous than this…
Wish you had the tools to turn your dreams into reality?
Mantras are a powerful way to center and align with the energy of YOUR choosing! At the Full Moon phase when energy is already high, and especially with this current Moon sign intensifying our emotions, Mantras are indispensable!
Try repeating this mantra twice a day, or more frequently during the day, if you can:
“Even in my darkest times, I accept and love myself completely. I am strong, I am powerful and I am transforming with every breath I take”.
5 Unavoidable Methods for Change at the Scorpio Full Moon
1. Dive Deep
If there is any time to go within, and face up to your inner landscape, it’s now. The Earth is undergoing a huge collective purge. We are being forced to slow down and step away from the lives we knew. Use this time to dive deep into yourself. Use the light of this Full Moon phase to illuminate the darkest corners of your inner world. That’s where the treasure lies.
2. Burn Away Your Old Self
One of Scorpio’s totems is the phoenix. The firebird of transformation that burns to ashes, before being reborn again. This destruction of the old is a powerful metaphor for what this Moon offers you now: You’re being invited to burn away the old you. To leave her or him here, and be reborn with the New Moon in a fortnight’s time.
3. Re-write Your Inner Stories
How many stories do you keep telling yourself that aren’t true?
With Mercury conjunct the Sun and opposing the Moon, your self-talk is getting a reboot! SO release those scripts, and delete that inner dialogue.
Full Moons always bring the opportunity to release. As the Moon moves through the waning half of her lunar cycle, ask her to take away these stories and words. Replace them with love, kindness, and generosity.
The Moon entering any water sign activates this element, making this an optimum time to hydrate, and incorporate water into both your daily life, and your sacred work.
- Drink plenty of water.
- Mop your floors.
- Water your houseplants.
- Take a Full Moon ritual bath.
- Make a lunar elixir.
- Anoint your body with water as a sacred tool.
5. Hold a Gratitude Ritual
The vibration of gratitude is on a par with love. Each Full Moon that we see during these strange times offers another opportunity for HUGE magnetism. The Jupiter-Pluto conjunction that’s been influencing the collective horoscope for so long now, can amplify the positive power you hold, as well as the darkness. Whatever you focus on, and channel your feelings into, will be amplified right now.
Give gratitude through ritual intent and action. Simply lighting a candle and writing a list, then reading it out, of all the things you’re grateful for can make an immense change to the collective frequency.
It’s in your hands!
So many Supermoon blessings to you.
