Your horoscope for May 3 to 9, 2012
Saturday’s full moon occurs at 8:25 p.m. It is the second of three in a row and of five super moons for 2012. A super moon intensifies the Earth’s electromagnetic fields and personal energy fields too. Scorpio’s potency is never lightweight. When it isn’t overt, it’s covert, complex, and seducing.
Just two hours before the full moon peaks, Mercury opposes Saturn. The planet of communication, mobility, and commerce, Mercury is a quick wit and a sharpshooter in Aries. It can be hotheaded too. When polarized with Saturn, Mercury’s freedom is limited, its speed is slowed, and it meets with delay. Mercury can’t act without first knowing where it needs to stand. Saturn provides dictation, setting the rules and defining the reality. This combo can produce frustration, but when used constructively, Mercury authorized by Saturn is one of timing it right.
Scorpio Dirty Harry describes the simmering pressure best: “This time, it’s personal.” The compulsive, unleashing, or unhinging Scorpio full moon acts as a major release valve. It can be a tide-turner or a power-play time for matters of finance, economics, business, politics, and intimate or close relationships.
If it appears that things are subdued, laid to rest, or even snuffed out, check your radar. Private talks, backroom planning, hidden motivations, secret dealings—it’s a sure bet that there’s more than meets the eye. Sunday onward thrusts more into action.
March 19 - April 19
Saturday’s super full moon can resurrect something you have buried, suppressed, or long put to rest. You may wrestle with yourself, a legal matter, a debt, or another. The full moon marks a critical revealing, seeding, or stage-setting time for the upcoming eclipses. Be they lover, sibling, mentor, agent, or friend, a key person now holds the key to your future.
April 19 - May 20
Over the next couple of days, you could be confronted by an “at you” situation. Saturday’s no-way or all-the-way full moon may hit a final nail on the head, or it could empower you to seize the moment. Watch for a hidden opportunity, an advantage, a void or vacancy to fill, a grab-it-now bargain, or a time to seal your best deal.
May 20 - June 20
There’s only so much you can do, manage, or work to prevent, but be forewarned that a health, work, or financial problem could erupt over this super full moon weekend. An interruption of service, a breakdown, or a meltdown could take a big bite out of you too. Past when shit hits the fan, your efforts and aims should prove to be more effective.
June 20 - July 22
It’s likely been especially difficult to express yourself lately, to get what you deserve and to find what you want. You are at the end of this now. Saturday’s super full moon is an empowering tide-changer. You’ll reach a finish line or a push-comes-to-shove cutoff point, or have an epiphany. Through Wednesday, you’ll net faster gains.
July 22 - August 22
You can be at full stop one minute and on full steam ahead the next. Once a block or deadline has been surpassed, the ink has dried, or a mind is set, don’t sit back; aim to gain more mileage while it’s still fresh. You can do just that through Wednesday, but resourcefulness continues to be necessary. Keep safeguards and backup provisions in place.
August 22 - September 22
Saturday’s full moon can keep dilemma, obsession, or second-guessing going strong, but it’s part of the process of getting clearer and more fully committed. Someone may be catalytic and/or revealing. Present challenges serve to transform you into a stronger, more determined, more dynamic you. No sabotaging allowed! Why allow yourself to backtrack when you stand poised to take a giant leap forward?
September 22 - October 22
The super Scorpio full moon can make you super-juiced. Once you get a fix on someone or something, you could be profoundly transformed. Your future is now only a short distance away. Appearing now or soon: a new career, a romantic or training prospect, a relocation, a creative project nearing realization, an award, an official status, a legal victory, a major financial investment, vindication.
October 22 - November 21
The especially potent full moon in Scorpio could unleash a bottleneck of pressure or emotion, or even more. You can expect to stay on an extended campaign and to keep it going strong Sunday through Tuesday. By mid week, Mercury in Taurus and the Capricorn moon will slow the pace, yet steady your progress. On Wednesday, take care of business. Stay results-driven; nail it down.
November 21 - December 21
Pacing yourself, your money, or your heart is wise prior to Saturday’s super full moon. Once Scorpio energies are on the rise, you won’t be able to hide out or escape it any longer. Sunday evening through Tuesday, the Sagittarius moon puts you into good flight; synchronicity adds the right spark. Wednesday gets you there.
December 21 - January 20
By the time this work week is finished, you’ll be too. After such hard push-and-shove—all the striving, persevering, and accomplishment—you deserve a major reward. If they haven’t given it to you yet, gift yourself. The high-impact super moon could prompt a major breakthrough and/or completely alter your course. Either way, it spells improvement.
January 20 - February 18
Waiting for the moment to arrive, or feeling worried that the other shoe is about to drop? The big push or pressure ceiling continues until Saturday. Look to the super Scorpio full moon to finally peel it back and show you what you’re really working with. Sunday onward, it’s major power-play time. Sign, seal, deliver it.
February 18 - March 19
Mercury’s opposition to Saturn can keep you waiting for the money, the goods, the opportunity, or the end. You may feel you are running out of options, interest, or good ideas. Watch for the replenishing Scorpio full moon to switch the dial from almost gone to full-on. You’ll keep on a lucrative draw through mid month. -
