That Full Moon!
The Full Moon this week is in Scorpio, and this particular Full Moon is always charged with a special force of mystery, intrigue, and a sense of anticipation. Its force is very focused and exact, and it will seek where it needs to go. That makes the May Full Moon somewhat unpredictable, because we don´t know exactly where, inside of ourselves, we will be affected. Not to worry though, because the altruistic trait of Scorpio is to be fearless of the Unknown.
Enjoy this week because it´s special. It´s also the week before Mercury goes retrograde, so get all of the usual precautions taken care of, such as double- and triple-checking everything. At this week´s end, close the book on expecting things to be efficient for the following three weeks. They won´t be, unless you were born with a retrograde Mercury; if you were, you will be the lucky ones!
Aries (March 21- April 19): Get it all signed, sealed and delivered this week! Mercury goes retrograde next Monday and you know the drill. The loaded event for this week is the intense Full Moon in Scorpio, which throws its light into your sector of intimacy and secrets. If something is hidden, it will come out now!
Taurus (April 20 – May 20): The Full Moon in your opposite sign of Scorpio brings out that focused energy that can cause some serious head-butting with your sweetheart. Don´t get yourself in a twist unless you have to. Your Ruler Venus is finishing her sojourn in your sign, so that should override any doubts you have in any direction. Be happy and tend to your garden.
Gemini (May 21- June 20): Your Ruler Mercury goes retrograde next Monday, so get everything in order as much as possible. The Full Moon in intense Scorpio is going to shed light on hidden aspects of either your work or your health. Use this week to gain respite and get organized so that you will be up to the silly things that will occur during the retrograde period.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22): The Full Moon in your intense cousin Scorpio´s sign will bring issues to light that you had forgotten. This Full Moon illuminates your sector of creative expression and children, so any plans to engage in activities of those two areas will be stellar when they occur. Get ready for the retrograde Mercury next week, as it takes place in your sector of Endings and something might come back to bite you.
Leo (July 23 – August 22): Saturn has come out of retrograde in your sector of money…it appears you may be changing jobs or coming into some kind of restructuring financially.

Virgo (August 23 – September 21): The Full Moon in your sector of short trips and learning brings a sense of purpose to you as you shift your focus to rethinking who you are and how you feel about yourself.

Scorpio (October 24- November 22): Here comes your once-a-year Full Moon, in your own sign, and the power surge that comes with it. This is normally a rather low time for you, but with so much energy in your favor, you are hardly feeling that. Your ability to share information and confide in your nearest and dearest encourages a sense of expansion for you, and you are able to gain confidence in areas that have previously been your weak ones. Good for you!

Plan to take it easy for those three weeks and recover your energy.
Capricorn (December 21 – January 21): The Full Moon shines on you and your closest friends, and your goals are within reach. Keep up those good connections and fill yourself with their goodness. If you focus on your social life this week and spend time with others that make you feel good about yourself you will be ready for the retrograde Mercury that comes next week, which will fall in your sector of work and health. Get everything done this week if you can.
Aquarius (January 22 – February 20): The Full Moon in your sector of Career brings new information you need in order to make a decision. Be sure to initiate changes this week, because next week Mercury goes retrograde in your sector of creative expression and you don´t want to lose your temper over something you or someone else overlooked!

This is an excellent opportunity to forge new commitments and enhance the quality of your partnership.
