This month has held a lot of potent astrological changes. Most of which have been for the better if you have been willing to surrender control, honor what is leaving and embrace what is staying. But we all know that’s easier said than done. If you’ve been feeling the sting of endings and huge beginnings, you’re right on track! It all has to do with Lunar Eclipse and Full Moon in Scorpio.

What exactly happened?

The lunar eclipse and full Moon in Scorpio on May 5th. That’s what.

Lunar eclipses are always filled with emotional revelations and change. But when paired with a full moon in the deep, transformative sign of Scorpio, its power is amplified.

A lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon moves into Earth’s shadow and is entirely blocked from the Sun, causing it to visually disappear to half of Earth. This phenomenon happens every six months or so during the full moon phase. All of this taking place in the sign of Scorpio made the shadows even more potent.

Scorpio is the sign of transformation and rebirth. This water sign is ruled by Pluto, making it intense, emotional and dark. Scorpio is here to force us to look at the parts of our lives and ourselves we’d rather run from. Every unprocessed emotion, every outdated belief, every toxic cycle is here to be illuminated. Now is where we decide if we want to carry on living the way we have been or if it’s time to burn it all to the ground and begin again.

So what do I do now?



Be honest with yourself and recognize the patterns, beliefs and dynamics that are no longer serving you. It’s time for all of it to be released. As scary as that may seem, all cycles are meant to end once we have fully learned the lesson they were designed to show. If you’re already feeling lighter and refreshed, welcome to the next chapter! But if you are still sifting through the heavier emotions, don’t worry. Keep processing and trust yourself to know that the answers you’re searching for will reveal themselves when you are ready.
