Risky Business

The Moon becomes full in the sign of Scorpio on May 10. The Astrology forecast for this Full Moon is both powerfully fortunate, and potentially maleficent. It is much like Scorpio itself, a kiss sealed with a sting. Let's take a look at the benevolent before we look at the bad.

This Moon is sextile Pluto (sextile: the aspect, or special angle, where planets or other horoscope points are about 60° apart in the Zodiac circle), and that's a good thing. This psychological, probing, and transforming nature of this planet can bring together the polarities in your life, represented by the Sun opposite Moon. We will all feel some very intense and deep experiences as a result. Because feelings are at their apex at a Full Moon, these deep experiences in our personal lives will reveal how you truly feel about someone - and vice versa. Relationships can and will most likely evolve to a deeper level or you will simply move on.

Things that is crumbling into decay in your life can be transformed now. Cleaning the distraction in your mind and in your environment is important now and you can get to the root cause of bad habits, addictions, and do away with chaotic behaviors. This all has to do with the Moon being in the same decan as the fixed star Beta Librae. Commonly called Zubeneschamali, this green star marks the Northern Scale of the Libra Constellation. According to our friends at Astrology King, "the old symbolical name for this star is the Full Price. This relates to the Karmic Scales balancing the good deeds versus bad deeds of a soul. Full Price means that all karmic debts have been paid and there may even be some credit. Therefore, Beta Librae, Zubeneschamali, the Northern Claw is a fortunate fixed star. Our full moon star Zubeneschamali has the planetary nature of Jupiter and Mercury. This, according to scholars, gives good fortune, high ambition, beneficence, honor, riches, and permanent happiness.”

Our friends at Darkstar Astrology note, though, that there is another star in this decan. "Unukalhai is a major star and found in the neck of the Serpens. This star has an unfortunate reputation according to the ancients. It is also connected with Lilith, Kundalini and sex magic. The Chiron medicine man is holding this forbidden fruit, which could be spiritual wisdom or poison. The Serpent is both deadly and sacred. The serpent revealed to Ophuichus how to bring the dead back to life, which could be seen as a transgression of natural law. The use of magic must be used responsibly and not for selfish purposes, which is why this star has the reputation that is does". The mysterious and sometimes eerie Full Moon is bound to emphasis the occult potential of this decan.

Full moon sensitive females might find that they cannot help but become the ultimate femme fatale. On the other hand, males touched by this full moon will play the typical Don Juan. Both sexes need to watch they don’t become too ruthless in the quest of bedding the object of their desire. This Full Moon position can almost be too cartoon-like in its potential to produce scoundrels. This Full Moon in Scorpio will open our eyes further to the degeneracy in the world (if they weren’t open enough already.)

Our advice this month? Gird your loins, dear ones, for this could be an epic battle of good vs. evil. It will be interesting to watch how this affects our political goings-on.
