Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio, May 15/16 2022
Full Moon in Scorpio, May 15 9:14 p.m. PDT/ May 16 12:14 a.m. EDT.
This Full Moon is also a Lunar Eclipse, so her powers are amplified. And that's both good and bad.
All this battering the stock markets experienced this past week? Well, that would be the eclipses in Taurus/Scorpio, two financial signs. If you're are a regular reader of my posts, you will remember that my prediction for 2022 was shocks in one or more of the following: the financial sector, agriculture, and Mother Earth. With the eclipse energy travelling through Taurus and Scorpio, we become concerned with "survival needs", such as food, shelter, and holding onto your money.
And this upcoming Full Moon in Scorpio - well, it brings tense energies....Saturn is square both the Sun and the Moon at the time of this eclipse, showing a downturn.
Because we tend to behave in an emotional rather than rational manner when eclipses are active, plus we might not have all of the information we need just yet, common astrological wisdom is to not make any major decisions for about a week before and after the eclipse.
The eclipse energy will start dissipating a few days after this eclipse, so hang in there.
I always say, "set intentions on a New Moon that is also a Solar Eclipse only if you're a risk taker at heart" - and that's because your desires can materialize fast, but in an unexpected or maybe even a turbulent way.
A Full Moon which is also a Lunar Eclipse, like this Scorpio Full Moon we're heading into, is a different matter though. Setting intentions to release what no longer serves you is a safe bet on an eclipse, and in fact, it's a very powerful time to do so.
Set your intentions, and keep repeating them over the next two weeks. Then, at the next New Moon (May 30), make intentions for new beginnings. Replace what no longer serves you with what you want to attract: that’s the base principle of working with Lunar Energies.
This Full Moon in Scorpio is THE day of the year to set intentions to let go compulsions and addictions, to reduce financial debts, and to set aside old baggage and guilt. Set yourself free!
- Set aside about 30 minutes after the Moon becomes full: May 15 9:14 p.m. PDT. Any time until May 16 4:50 a.m. PDT/7:50 a.m. EDT will still work. The Moon will still be in Scorpio.
- Prepare your space. You will need to focus on your intentions. It may help to light a candle and burn some incense. A black candle is traditionally associated with removing things from your life, but a white candle will work as well.
- Spend a few minutes writing in your gratitude journal (or simply make a list of what you’re grateful for). This is IMPORTANT! Don't skip this step. By thanking the Universe for the good things in your life, however small, you're energetically aligning yourself to receive more blessings.
- Then focus on what you want to release (behaviours or circumstances that don’t serve your goals). Truly FEEL your intentions. This is also important. You need to infuse your intentions with energy. You WANT debt to be gone out of your life, after all! You WANT to have financial stability and independence in your life. And, set aside that guilt you`ve been carrying. It`s time to set yourself free. You can write your intentions on a piece of paper and burn it if you wish.
“I want my feeling of guilt about ______gone from my life.”
“I want my obsessive thoughts about _________totally lifted from me.”
“I want to easily be able to reduce my debts”
“I want all jealousy totally lifted from me”
“I want all desires of revenge towards ______gone from my life”
"I want my relationship with _____ to be drama-free".
To Go Deeper:
We all have the ability to draw what we desire to us, the ability to manifest the future we want. We don't always use it, because we don't know how!
We spend years in school, learning science and literature and many other subjects. Then we spend years developing skills we need for our career.
And yet, the skill to manifest the future we want? For most of us, we didn't learn it growing up - but we can certainly learn it as adults.
Join me for my "MoonManifest" program, that teaches you just that.
I still can’t believe it. Truly, I’ve been talking about moving/buying a house for decades but never felt it was within my reach. I think having those specific intentions, written clearly helped me to focus on achieving those goals. Nothing dropped in my lap and I had to make the effort but rather than having to walk the whole way, a moving walkway appeared at just the right moments to help me over some challenging spots. From now on I’m going to work WITH the Universe!

It was straightforward, practical, interactive... all the things that help make new information become transformation.

I loved the breakdown that was given to us and the we had the chance to practice. Loved it and would take it again.
