Scorpio Monthly Forecast for May 2017
Scorpios start the month with the Sun in sensual Taurus, your 7th house of significant commitments. This is the time to pour your energy into relationships, partnerships, marriages and alliances. If matters have been in limbo recently, thanks to Mercury and Venus retrograde, discussions, negotiations and resolutions will soon turn tail giving you a clearer direction. In the meantime, the foundation has been built to re-examine the role that is played in giving love and harmony, co-operating and balancing each other's needs. Over the coming weeks, new relationships will evolve, whether through an engagement, living together as a partnership, or getting married. The focus will also be on business partnerships and public relations that have been in abeyance, and settling legal matters with opponents.
The 1st is May Day, in honour of the ancient goddess Maia. The old Celtic name for May Day is Beltane, the fiery light of the year, marked by bonfires and fervent celebrations, feasting and fiery delights. Drummers' and dancers' delights, it goes without saying! This time is the focal point of the Other for Scorpio, so spend quality time with your love. From the 3rd to the 5th you could find yourself in a daze over love relationships. It may be hard to get off the ground and spur you onto constructive and creative projects. From the 5th to the 7th, opportunities may avail themselves from matters behind the scenes, especially with relationship issues, legal agreements and contracts.
The Full Moon on the 10th comes in stunning Scorpio, your 1st house of personality. For May, it is often 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. Wesak, also spelt Vesak, is a day celebrated by Buddhists around the world at this time. 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 is your Personal Full Moon for the year. It will mark the culmination of major events that took place at the end of October 2016. Your personal magnetism will be peaking, and it will have a dramatic impact on your life during the next two weeks. That's because it's urging you to make some far-reaching changes to your personal life. Maybe you need to readjust your daily schedule so you've got more time for yourself, or perhaps you ought to accept that one particular chapter of your life is over and it's time to move on. By doing this you'll create the space for something new to enter your life. Your attention will be drawn to work and health, resolving concerns with workplace agreements, public relations and your relationship with work colleagues. Mercury and Venus recently retrograde give you the chance to mend differences and resume work that has been recently interrupted. This is not the time to take risky chances with financial speculations. Problems and deception could arise over joint resources, possessions and other people's money. Hold over any decision on moneymaking deals.
On the 20th, the Sun moves out of earthy Taurus and into Gemini, your 8th house of sex, death and taxes. Over the ensuing four weeks, you will tackle your finances, resolving money issues, analysing and searching through problematic areas. Use your penetrative insight into corporate finances, debts, money owed and owing. Keep a check on insurances, mortgage obligations, and with Mars already in your 8th house, be careful not to overspend.
The 25th sees a New Moon in Gemini your 8th house. This in fact is a Super Moon, but not readily seen by the naked eye. Over the next two weeks, there will be a bearing on how you control finances. Start a new direction resolving your financial affairs and the way you handle other people's money, including joint income, credit cards, loans and mortgages. You may have too many fingers in the pie, so don't scatter your energy with so many ideas and processes in place. Concentrate on necessities and monetary obligations and consolidate where necessary. Check over your bank statements and access expenditure. Close relationships will also figure prominently, and how you relate and express your feelings. This is also a time in which you might probe into the paranormal, unraveling mysteries and the unknown.
Mercury remains stationary in dynamic Aries, your 6th house of work and health, before going direct on the 3rd after some weeks of retrograde motion. This has given you a chance to clean-up administration, sieve through paperwork, and get your routine in order. This means it's an excellent time to formulate plans for work -- and creative discussion is the best way to advance them. Brainstorming with co-workers will be valuable, but you may need to learn a new skill. Versatility is the key. If you have health issues, talk them over with an expert. From the 1st to the 13th, those annoying frustrations that have been in place recently are apt to recur with work and health issues. However, be open to changes, and taking a different approach to your routine. Between the 9th and the 13th you'll have a perfect time to concentrate on important issues, not only work-related but also concerning your personal income and budgeting.
On the 16th, the Cosmic Messenger returns to Taurus, your 7th house, but remains in a shadow phase until the 21st. You'll pick up on revised agreements, discussions, ideas and long-term plans. Lots of tension and argumentation could surface over recent debates, so expect some rip-roaring rows or sulky disagreements. These will be especially difficult if you feel you've got to be on your best behaviour and can't say what you're really thinking. Maybe it would be impolite to lose your temper, so you've got to button your lip. But that doesn't make it any easier to deal with them, does it?
The Goddess Venus remains in your 6th house this month after a lengthy retrograde phase. Things should start to progress in the work place, helping you get your health together, clearing misunderstandings and your relationship with the boss and co-workers. Use your charm and co-operate with those that are hard to get along with, as this can be to your advantage. Take a different approach to your creativity, art work and projects. Watch those delectable sweet chocolates and fatty foods, and re-establish a health routine. From the 18th to the 21st , you may have something to celebrate behind the scenes. Perhaps that beauty therapy you have been thinking about may eventuate, but in secret. From the 25th to the 27th, cross-communication won't resolve any problems in the work place. Patch up any disagreements with the boss and other official types.
Warrior Mars, your planetary ruler, remains in Gemini, your 8th solar house. Your energy level is likely to be scattered thanks to Mars raising the dust on money matters. Conflicts and concerns may arise over joint income and property. Have you overspent your partner's contribution more than initially anticipated? It's the time to take action and handle your financial obligations in a business fashion. Avoid asking for a loan or increasing your credit card debt, being extravagant or taking on quick moneymaking schemes, especially from the 10th to the 14th as you will be tempted to spend. Check that your repayments are up to date, including insurances, taxes and other money owed. From the 27th to the 31st, the heat will be raised and it will be imperative not to allow frustrations with finances to escalate, particularly if you have worked hard to increase your earnings.
The North Node/ South Node axis, known as the Dragon's Head and Tail, is changing signs. Retrograding into Leo your 10th house of career and ambitions, the True Node completes its karmic journey on May 9th, passing through the critical first degree of Virgo. The Mean Node has already moved into Leo on April 29th, but the power of the moment is undeniable. The movement of the Node into Leo sets the measure of karma over the next eighteen months.
