May 3 to 10, 2012 Visible Planets: Morning: Mercury Evening: Venus, Mars and Saturn
This week we witness and experience the fruition of the Taurus/Scorpio full Moon – frequently classified as the “sexiest, most fertile and seductive lunation of the year. Spring has sprung, the primal thrust of Aries has pushed us forward, propelled us into the verdant pastures of calm and peaceful Taurus, zodiac month of warming soil, greening grass and blossoming flowers.
Here on Wright’s Mesa, the lilacs are in bloom. Lime-green aspen flutter in the breeze as the first soft buds of blue spruce pop up out of their hardened branches. I checked the bluebird boxes the other day and found them all filled with pale blue eggs nestled in their well-built, tidy nests. Baby lambs and calves frolic in the morning sunshine, while days grow longer.
A fertile, fecundity permeates the air, earth and ethers. We’re on the front side of a warming trend and I love it. Drink it in, bask in the fertility, plant the seeds and till the soil. Touch the ones you love and kiss the ground you walk on. And, most of all, don’t forget to smell the lilacs. Mmmmm…
The Full Moon comes to fruition on May 5th – Cinco de Mayo! – at 9:35 pm @ 16 01′ Taurus/Scorpio. Enjoy the sensations and the season! Kisses, hugs and smiles…
Aries (Mar. 20-Apr.19) The Scorpio/Taurus full Moon is the sexiest and most seductive lunation of the year. As the fertility of Taurus joins force with the magnetic attraction of Scorpio, be well aware of your actions and intentions. Others may interpret friendly behaviors as flirtatious and think you are coming on to or wanting them in one-way or another. Don’t send mixed messages!
Taurus (Apr. 20-May20) This week’s “super-Moon” intensifies everything and everyone in your life – especially those people with whom you are close and committed. Life and death, change and transformation are themes. And with so many planets in Taurus, you are bound to be a major factor in every equation and relationship. Maintain your classic calm and charm. Be and do your best.
Gemini (May 21-June 21) Lunar light exposes what lies hidden beneath individual, social and professional facades in dance of acceptance and surrender. It’s time to clarify what you cherish and what you must transform, recognize the difference between what you can change and what you cannot. Thinking is not doing. Pay attention to internal dialogs and correct the incorrect.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) Intensified electro-magnetic fields illuminate feelings, hopes and dreams as the Moon grows full. Friends, associates and your own personal desire for love and affection take center-stage as daylight wanes and shadows dance. Embrace the magical, mystical quality of the week as you entrain with Mother Nature and harmonize with the regenerative power of spring.
Leo (July 23-Aug.22) Dynamic attraction waxes as the Moon grows full. Don’t be surprised if you meet some very powerful and influential people this week, or travel to some rather impactful places – people and places that have the potential to radically transform your life. Foundations shift and the balance between personal, social and professional is a must. Good luck!
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep.22) A rather optimistic, enthusiastic energy surrounds you now as you see the many glimmering possibilities shining light upon your path. Following several months of personal review, revision and replay, you are ready and willing to go forth. This is a brand, spanking new time and place for you to live, breath, perform and succeed. Congratulations.
Libra (Sep. 23-Oct. 22) Dazzling Venus in twilight seduces and entices Librans. Be sure to find a place and time to gaze upon her magnificent, magical beauty and bathe in her celestial light. This is a metaphysical must for those seeking peace, harmony and healing. Things in the world can be upsetting, disturbing and downright unjust. Embrace love, cultivate serenity and experience grace.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) This is one of two yearly must-pay-attention-to lunations for the Scorpion. What are you doing, how are you feeling and who and what is most important in your life today? Values and priorities, what you cherish and what you must transform are imperative themes. All is as it should be at this moment, focus attention and go forth with positive change.
Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 20) The full Moon lunation in Taurus/Scorpio calls for an assessment of values and relationships. How about honesty and trust? Money and possessions, responsibility and freedom? What and who really matters to you? Hiding out or simply taking a break from the social whirl calms the spirit and heals the soul. Too much work and busy-ness takes its toll.
Capricorn (Dec. 21-Jan. 19) Personal creativity continues to shimmer and shine as moonlight illuminates artistic talents and expressions. Even if you’re more comfortable with business than pleasure, you may discover that ultimately having fun and relaxing is highly therapeutic. You’re better all the way around with a good night’s sleep and a smile in your heart.
Aquarius (Jan. 19-Feb. 18) Home and family themes abound as the Moon grows full. Personal earning power vs. shared assets and efforts come into focus. Pooling resources and working with others who share the same goals and objectives guarantees success. Communicate needs and expectations, delineate responsibilities and maintain momentum.
Pisces (Feb. 18-Mar. 20) Information, learning and communication are themes this week. You may have to balance the student and teacher as you read, research, express and educate both yourself and others. Cottage industries, home businesses and neighborhood commerce are favored. Think globally and act locally as you invent, create, manifest and materialize creative ideas.
