Scorpio Monthly Forecast for May 2016
The 1st brings May Day, a wonderful time for Scorpions, marking the traditional festivities of Beltane, the ancient festival of fertility. From the 2nd to the 5th there'll be fortunate developments with friendships and within love relationships. Luck and financial benefits are on your side. From the 7th to the 8th, decisions and plans you make could be a real turning point in legal agreements, travel and changes to your relationship structure. From the 9th to the 10th, you'll be able to start negotiations with agreements, although these may not get off the ground till early next month.
The 6th sees the New Moon in sensual Taurus, your 7th house. This marks a favourable time to start a new relationship and a turning point in existing relationships and partnerships. If things have been difficult between you lately they could start to improve, or you might decide on a commitment. If you're about to move in with someone or decide to get married, you've chosen a really auspicious time to do it Congratulations! With Mercury also retrograde, remember to go over all documents with a fine-tooth comb.
On the 20th, the Sun moves out of Taurus and into versatile Gemini your 8th house of sex, death and taxes. During the next four weeks will place emphasis on your area of finances, joint partnership resources and possessions. Use your eagle-eye to investigate problematic issues with investments, insurances, inheritances, taxes and other people's money. Your deeper sexual urges and psychological fears could surface at this time. Regenerate your interests in the mysteries of life, the occult and reincarnation.
The Full Moon on the 21st comes in optimistic Sagittarius and will influence your 2nd house of personal earnings, values and possessions. This month we have a seasonal Blue Moon according to the modern definition of the third of four Full Moons between the March equinox and the June solstice. However in astrological terms, a Blue Moon happens when a Full Moon occurs twice in the same zodiacal sign in a single year, not just in the same calendar month or season. The second Full Moon of the two in Sagittarius will be known as the Blue Moon which falls on 20th June 2016.
For the month of May, it is referred to as the Full Flower Moon in the northern hemisphere, as flowers spring forth in abundance. It is also called Mother's Moon, Milk Moon, and Corn Planting Moon by some Algonquin tribes. This marks a time of increasing fertility with temperatures warm enough for safely bearing young, a near end to late frosts, and plants in bloom. For Buddhists the world over, it marks the Wesak Festival, celebrating the birth, teachings, enlightenment and passing away of the Lord Gautama Buddha. It is considered the most powerful Moon of the year, when great spiritual progress can be made.
This Full Moon will be influenced by your planetary ruler Mars, which will bring out an emotional and argumentative surge in settling financial problems and being possessive about belongings. It will also emphasize your issues within relationships, disagreements with a partner over joint money streams, joint property and debts. Be frugal, consolidate and settle outstanding debts; do not speculate on quick moneymaking schemes. You'll awaken your deeper sexuality, and psychic experiences. Don't let your fighting spirit get in the way of resolving difficulties.
From the 11th to the 15th, and the 29th to June 2nd, your powers of thought and expression will do you justice in negotiating agreements. From the 13th to the 15th, you'll be able to reach resolutions in an amicable way. Feelings for that special someone will be easier to express, reaching an understanding of each other's needs. Some Scorps could even sign a significant piece of documentation or marriage papers. From 18th to the 26th is a favourable time to spend with friends, a social event and set about making future goals. Mercury turns direct on May 22nd gradually accelerating to a speedier pace, and desired agreement sign-offs after June 8th.
On the 24th, the Goddess dances into Gemini, your 8th house of sex, death and taxes. Finances will surface, including joint resources, investments and other people's money. It's more intense with regard to romance, sexual encounters, and within close relationships. Psychological motivations, fears and behaviour patterns will also be in the picture. If there are no obvious impediments to prevent you, this is a good time to ask for loans or favours as well as chasing up money that is owed to you. From the 24th to the 26th, frustrations and jealousy may arise in close relationships, featuring possessiveness over money and belongings.
The second part of the Mars retrograde phase is in Scorpio from May 27th up to August 2nd. As your planetary ruler steps back into your 1st house, unfinished business dealings during January and February will need a final visit before you can make real progress. This will include relationships, friendships, business partnerships and legal agreements. This can leave you exasperated with the actions of others and opponents, affecting your willingness to compromise. It could test your patience, particularly if ego differences create tension, disputes within litigation and divorce settlements. You might decide to use your physical energy by pursuing tasks that you haven't had time to do in the past, as well as releasing some steam through your sexuality and libido. It won't be the time to rush into hasty decisions; instead allow yourself to work through differences at a steady pace. Mars goes direct on June 29th before re-entering your 2nd house on August 2nd.
