The Full Moon at 14°58′ Scorpio and Lunar Eclipse on the 5th May opposite Uranus is conjuring up the most unexpected fated events and encounters. Turn initially challenging news and developments into pleasant surprises by deciphering where you will place your unwavering focus. The power is in your hands and mind.

Major life shifts are on the horizon, whether you are spiritually, emotionally or physically ready or not. The Universe has been busy constructing an assault course to whip you into shape, testing your coping mechanisms. Adamant that you want someone or something in particular, then God and the Universe will send options and obstacles to test your commitment. Instead of fearing failure or rejection, make the first important step and the next and you will be supported for your hopefulness.

Some are facing the most testing of times, some spiritually chosen and others man made. No matter the reasoning for what is happening to you, own it and evolve yourself and the situation into the most inspiring success story and transformation. Anything truly worth having won’t just fall onto your lap. 

Blessings in disguise will strengthen your perseverance and shatter stagnant energy. The Universe is gifting you Pandora’s Box, triggering the most necessary unpredictable and chaotic cosmic energy. Depending on how you react and handle upcoming events will determine the outcomes, but keep in mind that chaos often births breakthroughs.

Many of you are battling obstacles being lunged at you from all directions, affecting your finances, relationships, family life, career, and will even have you questioning your purpose, due to the Lunar Eclipse aligning with an unfortunate star. Yet the intention is not for you to crumble under pressure, instead to face everything and everyone head on that is holding you back from your greatest visions and happiness. Some aren’t wishing for extreme dreams to be fulfilled, they are merely working towards a place of stability. Whatever you are desiring as your end goal, ensure that you don’t give up hope during this crucial time, don’t panic and listen to your intuition for guidance. God, the Angels, your guides and passed over loved ones couldn’t be closer during testing times.

Individuals with intuitive and spiritual abilities will feel electrifying energy and changes fast approaching. To step into the next crucial chapter as your most confident, inspiring, strong and focused self, start preparing, working hard and strategising to accommodate your manifestations. Manifestation without applied action and intention is a wasted wish, when you subconsciously tell yourself that you’re not yet ready to receive, you delay the opportunities.

This Full Moon and Solar Eclipse is about owning your emotions and mindset, don’t allow negative thoughts influenced by the fixed star Zubenelgenubi at 15°24′ Scorpio representing negative karma to throw you off track. Dreams will be heightened and cautions delivered to you through intuitive thoughts and feelings. Never have you felt so powerful, even if you feel like you are crumbling under pressure, constant problematic lessons are being dealt and you’re only just keeping your head above water, get ready to reintroduce the most refined and wise version of yourself.

Everything that you have experienced and forcefully gone through over the last few years occurred so that you could arrive at this exact destination with your present thinking and outlook. You can’t evade exterior manipulation and interference. Often we have to be pulled down to be able to sympathise and truly understand what other people are going through. Perspective is a blessing and light cannot exist without the dark.

Uranus opposite an unfortunate star potentially provokes some unpleasant surprises. Try not to panic, whilst a lunar eclipse often triggers a more powerful astrological impact, the May lunar eclipse is more subtle in its approach. If you couldn’t handle it then you wouldn’t be served the lesson. The times in your life when you have elevated spiritually and emotionally in the most transformative ways are usually after struggle, heartbreak, or a feeling of lack, that pushes you to be stronger than ever. Nothing extraordinary comes from a place of comfort zone and you owe it to yourself not to give up.

Everything may be stacked against you, but your power is in the way that you process a situation, hold on to hope and your unwavering perseverance. If there is a way, you will find it. Everything is being thrown into perspective, you have been through worse. Realise that if anyone else can do it, so can you. If you were able to erase the most challenging times experienced, then you miss out on the battles necessary to sharpen your focus and that make you who you are.

Allow self-doubts to evaporate away, because you need your strength now more than ever to focus all of your energy on creating exciting times ahead. Put in the dedication to eventually reap your well deserved rewards. The ongoing journey was never meant to be consistently easy, otherwise you would never truly appreciate how far you’ve come.

The Moon is illuminating all things hidden, because eventually matters that you have been avoiding have to arise to the surface. People usually only show you what they want you to see. Not everything is always as it first appears. Originality has never been more lacking or necessary. When you show up, dress, act, talk like everybody else, you are merging into the background and dissolving your unique blueprint. Very few view the world through your eyes and that is your superpower, so don’t allow society and the pre-constructed consensus of the masses diminish your individuality and vision. The world is as beautiful or as ugly as you allow it to become.

When you believe in the concept that there’s a hierarchy of power and influence you’re instantly falling into line. No matter how ridiculous, huge or small your goals and dreams may appear, if they can do it, so can you, as long as you are willing to work on other supporting factors such as talent and hard work.  

Most have experienced some level of criticism in their life whether it be from family, a partner, friends, bullies, teachers, a boss, or maybe you’ve not received much if any criticism and felt supported and it is you yourself that feels unworthy and adopted the imposter syndrome.

Your ideas, visions and passion would have never been imprinted in your mind if you couldn’t fulfil them. Instead of thinking so small, replace these thoughts with what if. Give yourself that chance and opportunity. Yes, there may be other conflicting factors that slow down the process of reaching your goals, or you have to work even smarter backed by tenacity as everything is stacked against you, but if you keep going you will get there in the end. Avoid focusing on your weaknesses and instead amplify your strengths. Anything you don’t know, learn. This is not talk of delusions because there are times to be realistic, but when it comes to your purpose, you have to keep striving.

This Full Moon emits the energy for magic and miracles. Expansion, faith, initiative and courage is key, leave the mundane notion of living someone else’s dreams at the door and question everything. If your idea of total bliss is to spend time with your family and children, make it happen and make sure you’re choosing your path and that life isn’t choosing you. It’s never forced when you follow your intuition and heart, you only hinder destiny when you ignore all of the synchronicities, gut feelings and settle for less than you deserve. Whilst you have important daily obligations and responsibilities, try not to lose yourself in the mix.

The Full Moon opposite Uranus influences you to strive for independence. When you are on the brink of something major you can feel more anxious and nervous because you have a lot to lose, but everything to gain. The Full Moon’s energy will provoke uncertainty, mood swings and emotional unbalance but remain calm and in control by searching for the solutions instead of emphasising the problems.

Combining the Uranus aspect and fixed star Zubenelgenubi bringing shocking surprises, patience is a necessity whilst you strategically prepare for your upcoming new life cycle. Resist through frustration acting spontaneously without strategy. Avoid irrational behaviour and outbursts, read that text message or email 3 times and breathe before you decide to send it.

The unpredictable events ahead are not all being sent to challenge you, there’s a high chance of unexpected encounters in love life and work that can positively change your life. If you have become a hermit, leave the house once in a while to allow the opportunities to bump into you.

Thank your lucky stars that it is a subtle penumbral lunar eclipse, diminishing the effects of the fixed star Zubenelgenubi at 15°24′ Scorpio. Karma, whilst most believe it to have negative repercussions, it is important to clear stagnant energy to build new paths towards better experiences and connections. We all make mistakes, karma is gifted to allow us to grow and to become self-aware. This Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse is what you make it, stay in your power and be grateful for the most unexpected events and shifts being sent to wake you up and to be placed back onto your destined path.

Full Moon in Scorpio and Lunar Eclipse

Aries New Moon at 29°50′ synchronising with the rarest hybrid Solar Eclipse that only occurs a few times each century is creating fated chaos in our personal and work lives to force us to seek unexpected rewarding outcomes and better options. Embrace drastic changes to avoid being dragged from our comfort zone by challenging square aspect to Pluto ripping all control from our grips, a sacrifice crucial for us to evolve and our lives to truly begin.

A clear vision of how our current and future life ‘should’ look is firmly embedded in our minds, keeping us stagnant by resisting the significantly more favourable options that God and the Universe are waiting to deliver. Some of the people that we are about to encounter are heaven sent.

The moment we release control and disassociate from our fixed tunnel vision, we allow Universal energies and divine intervention to play their roll. Tests are being sent to break us down specifically our egos, to enable us to be built back up stronger, happier and more confident than ever. We can either continue to crumble and panic, or recognise the spiritual wake up call and opportunity.

Fixated often in our old habits and ways of thinking, we begin to believe that we categorically know who is our perfect potential partner and the criteria that they must match. Sometimes we don’t know our actual type until they unexpectedly cross our path. Drastic changes in our love lives spark a new whirlwind romance, or reconciliation, leaving unfulfilling and one sided connections with situationships and exes in the past. Many in relationships are or have just experienced a drastic break up which they did not foresee, leaving some with a desire to cut all ties and move forward and others holding on.

Couples in strong relationships will have other aspects of their lives tested. Sudden changes to living arrangements at the most inconvenient of times are sent to push us towards new energy and spaces, to open our eyes to long term plans and goals. Some may feel stuck in a particular location, because our person is local and divine intervention requires us to be in the surrounding area. For others a spontaneous trip ignites an encounter that places us in the direct path of an important soul connection meeting against all odds.

Various obstacles will be served. Short notice from our landlord to vacate a property due to it suddenly being bought, or if we’re the one selling our home or investment then it is time to release burdens, or create new memories in our new home and venture.

Endless planning goes on behind the scenes, trust that every challenge and occurrence is sent to teach us life lessons, or progress us towards our greater happiness. Search for the silver lining and purpose.

Friendships will also be challenged, resulting in us speaking up on questionable behaviour from superficial friends.

Reluctance or discouragement to invest in a new business, course or switch to a desired job or career when fearing the extent of risk, due to a lack of stability, the current climate and absence of self belief is only slowing down our destined plans. Follow your inner voice and intuition. Even if we choose to resist change, this New Moon and the Solar Eclipses’s energy will assert control and shake our stable foundations, fast tracking us. This can materialise through the form of dismissal, unexpected taxes and continuous financial outgoings.

Sometimes we have to be broken down to be rebuilt stronger than ever, especially when escaping the ego. Testing times provoke us to think smarter instead of working harder. The heightened determination within us, will help to fulfil our greatest goals and visions. Rejecting our intuition and feelings will provoke further signs to present themselves until we have no choice but to pay attention. Many successful people have experienced failure before their most profound breakthrough. Share your talent and ideas with the rest of the world. If you want to write that special book, start typing or pick up the pen. Every success story starts one optimistic thought of creation. Experiencing brain fog, feeling out of sorts, or doubting our capabilities won’t last long and we will return more focused and ready.

A positive fixed star inspires us to intuitively tackle the challenges we face. Getting creative and thinking strategically, disallows panic and fear to set in. When we force our life instead of allowing the energies to naturally flow, we restrict ourselves from endless possibilities and opportunities. Having a particular vision and being decisive is beneficial, but we can’t always see the bigger picture in all of its grandeur.

Often we strive for perfection and try to control how we are perceived because we are being driven by ego. What will people think? A need to sometimes prove ourselves through materialism and it is fine to be drawn to beautiful places and quality things, but we don’t need to portray a perfect perception of ourselves. Often people find the truth and vulnerability far more endearing so be careful not to get caught in the craziness of the rat race.

This New Moon is about tackling obstacles from a soulful level to serve our highest good.

Aries is conjunct Jupiter, but the most prominent aspect is the square to Pluto. The Solar Eclipse makes this New Moon substantially more powerful when it darkens the Sun. If the light at the end of the tunnel has faded, there is that glimmer of hope still shining through.

One key quality of this New Moon and Solar Eclipse is to stay calm despite the most unexpected of events. There’s nothing that you can’t handle, otherwise it wouldn’t be happening for you. This New Moon calms emotional balance, allowing all opportunities to be explored and discussed. 

Chaos and stress triggers fight or flight reactions. The calming energy of this New Moon and Solar Eclipse that spiritually connects us to all that cannot be seen or known, provokes an excited yet subtle confidence that everything is going to turn out exactly how it’s meant to. 

Fixed star Alrisha has a unifying significance and binds the two Piscean fishes together. Influencing us to recognise where we are going, what we want and with who.

Since the beginning of 2023 we’ve been dealt multiple tests, whether it be constant outgoings or obligations, making the year feel like it is flying by, but we’re going to continue to positively go with the flow.

The effects of this important Solar Eclipse lasts for 6 months. It’s the perfect time to start fresh, a new relationship, a new project or collaboration, moving into a new home, starting a fitness regime, whatever you desire. It affects all zodiac signs.

Leading up to this New Moon and Solar Eclipse many have reminisced over the past, mistakes, missed opportunities, feeling of guilt, harsh words and regrettable actions, but it is time to let go of the disappointments and regrets. We cannot move forward into a beautiful future when carrying past burdens that weigh down on our hearts. It’s a time to forgive everyone but most importantly forgive ourselves. Each day we are gifted the chance to do better. 

Whatever falls in the past is done and unchangeable, if we learn from the mistakes and choose to move forward with only the best intentions then the slate has been wiped clean. 

One mistake can consume us, whilst we disregard all of the kind and good deeds that we’ve done no matter how big or small for others. Now that we know better, we need to do better and allow ourselves to evolve. Since everything happens for a reason, there was reasoning behind even our mistakes to bring us to this very point in time and way of thinking.

Fixed star Mirach, a 2.1 magnitude star, whilst bringing challenges due to being square to Pluto, aids our ability to forgive, to be kind and sharpens our minds. It provokes happiness and love for ourselves and others. Don’t entertain Constellation Andromeda to discourage our perseverance.

This hybrid Solar Eclipse is a cosmic gift reenergising us with hope that everything is going to turn out exactly as it was intended, no matter the struggle. Embrace the challenges and changes to arrive at a more beautiful destination ahead. Keep trusting in that.

Solar Eclipse and Aries New Moon

It is time for personal deep healing on a soulful level. The Full Moon at 16°07′ Libra and opposite Chiron, forces past traumas, insecurities, disappointments, mistrusts and unhealed emotions that have been subconsciously hidden and derived from previous feelings of rejection, victimisation and words and actions that jeopardised our own feeling of self worth to rise to the surface. Unsolved issues caused by the relationship with a parent, partner, friend or any other individual which made us feel less worthy, cautious to trust freely, or instilled a sense of having to prove ourselves, are being highlighted by Chiron as the blockages that stop us from moving forward in our life.

These subconscious hurts are preventing us from stepping into the best versions of ourselves, experiencing the highest quality romantic relationships, friendships and distracting us from fulfilling our life goals and purpose. Call for closure on other people’s warped opinions formed by their own experiences that they project onto us, that influence and stop us from loving ourselves to the fullest. We should see ourselves for who we truly are through our own eyes, a constant yet beautiful work in progress.

Past and present romantic relationships, friendships and family bonds will be at the forefront of our minds. This is a time for analytical and heartfelt conversations with ourselves. We are about to enter into an exciting, evolving, successful, abundant, overflowing with love, new chapter and we cannot be weighed down by any past insecurities and unhealed wounds. It will require us to turn up with all of your high energy and focus.

Chiron is dealing us with raw yet necessary cosmic lessons  to elevate us to become who we were born to be. Avoiding facing our shadow side, our own words and actions, along with other people’s behaviour that has slowly chipped away at us, is what is keeping us in a stagnated state of mind. Attracting self doubt, negativity and a feeling of not being enough to achieve and have everything that we desire. Whilst many of us are positive, confident and affected very little by what other people say or do, we have all experienced betrayals and confronting issues within our life no matter how big or small, that subconsciously sticks in our psyche.

We are so busy running to other people for advice and validation on matters that concern ourselves, instead of internally understanding why we think and act the way that we do. This Full Moon is the perfect time to release certain people and detrimental thoughts that are holding us back. Conversations and advice from others can provide clarity, but sometimes we need to act as our own shrink. No one else has access to all of our thoughts, emotions and memories like we do. We could have blissfully been unaware of the enormity of these issues and the effects on our present and future selves, minding our own business and getting on with life, only for these memories and feelings to all of a sudden hit us and stop us in our tracks.

Memories of people’s words and behaviour towards us can start to fill our heads. Triggering that we have necessary healing and issues to address, that are weighing down our subconscious mind. They can be a singular memory and a culmination of memories to lead us to feel like we have been mistreated. This can involve how a family member or members have treated us, or impacted our self-esteem and desire for approval, how a partner or love interest mistreated us, took us for granted or we experienced an imbalance of efforts. We may even recognise repeated odd comments from a friend that uncover an underlying tone. We have all experienced a form of betrayal by different people who entered our lives to teach us valuable lessons. The real lesson is how we react and how we decide to move forward. 

Do not let someone else’s lack of moral compass or confusion change our good character. We value an important connection by making someone aware of their behaviour, offering them a chance to rectify the problem, instead of instantly cutting ties. In some cases forgiveness does not require reconnection, but you free yourself from any burdens and regrets. Clear communication, understanding and forgiveness is required.

It is time to speak up about what is on our minds and hearts. Silence allows boundaries to be crossed and for trust to be broken. Emotional intelligence provoking strong communication skills and owning our feelings will get us through this self aware chapter in time. By analysing our own behaviour and state of mind we can better understand how we have reached this present way of thinking and being. We have not accidentally arrived at this destination, of being too guarded, paranoid or cautious to trust everyone, instead certain factors and people’s behaviour, actions and words have contributed to this way of being.

It’s about owning our current way of thinking and instead of accepting this is just who we are, work backwards and figure out how we reached this point. Issues that arise that are not tackled at the time often result in us skipping our own healing. Instead of solving a matter and releasing it, we’re holding onto the mistrust and hurt and leaving multiple question marks in its trail.

Expect emotional volatility and tensions during this Full Moon at 16°07′ Libra. The minor planet and comet Chiron and larger planet Uranus, an aspect pattern connecting the Full Moon triggers chaos and irritable outbursts. Thankfully, perfectly placed Mercury offers the solution when heartfelt and open conversations soothe worries. We are equipped to communicate our way towards closure to move forward with a lighter heart. Full Moon quincunx Uranus causes uncertainty and high tensions. View this as a liberating factor sent to free us from the constraints that we have allowed to restrict us.

Judgement and accusations of wrong doings by other people is unhelpful. Instead explain to them how they made you feel and how it’s affected you, so that they can understand and try to rectify the situation. When someone takes accountability for their faults, allow them to do better in order to move forward. In some situations you can forgive, but can no longer prolong the connection, when this happens move forward in a kind and graceful manner.

The entire point of life is to experience love to the highest degree and to evolve spiritually. This notion of cancel culture provokes constant judgement and glorifying someone’s downfall instead of listening and questioning someone’s actions and words, to instead allow them to reflect and learn from the experience. People are placed in our lives for a reason and vice versa. Whilst this Full Moon provokes raw emotions and outbursts, we have the power to control how we communicate these frustrations.

Always look for the silver lining, Chiron is here to realign karmic imbalance and stir things up, not to punish us, but to place us back on track.

Relationships that have been experiencing disconnection will be sent major events to balance this energy. Unexpected new relationships and encounters where an instant attraction is felt will force into question existing relationships that have been burdening us. Choices are being presented to offer perspective and to reignite our own fire and realisation of what and who we want. It is not about how much time has been invested, if you are mistreated and explained how you feel and you are met with a reluctance from the other person to work on the connection then choose to make the decision for them and allow this Full Moon to present you with all potential options.

Try to avoid impulsive actions. Use this chaotic energy to your advantage. If we are being tested in work and business and everything appears to be falling around us, sometimes it’s a gift from God to break everything apart so that we can be built back up bigger and better than ever. Innovation never comes from a place of comfort. When we are being tested most we can either crumble, or become our most creative, innovative and those that are connected to their spiritualism should expect grand ideas and experiences in the form of visitations.

The trajectory of our lives was never meant to flat line and stay in a stagnated state, we are meant to make every day, month and year count. It doesn’t always require huge actions, as one powerful thought is enough to make a difference to your day, just don’t stop striving towards what you want.

Mercury sextile Mars will bless our plans with good fortune by enforcing determination and Mercury sextile Saturn makes it a good time for business dealings and signing contracts, as it provokes clarity in thought, accurate judgment and strong organisational skills.

Mars trine Saturn encourages our ambitions and perseverance to fulfil a task or project to perfection. We are taking accountability and charge of all the things that we do have control over. Anything holding us back requires our own intervention to make important changes. Don’t push yourself to the point of exhaustion, set a plan and stick to it. Write down your goals and do everything in your power to achieve them. Lost your sparkle? Work on yourself until you feel that it has returned. There’s many things that can be fixed if given enough focus and foresight.

This Libra Full Moon is teaching us the importance of perseverance and not allowing anything or anyone to come between our goals, dreams and the best version of our future self. Declutter our energy and heal from past disappointments to allow yourself to step into a happier future.
