– Corollary to New Moon at 24° of Taurus
May 15, 2018 ~ 7:49 am EST / May 15, 2018 ~ 11:49 am UST
This full moon lunation at 1° Taurus revolves around issues of resources, wealth, and other people’s resources and wealth at the Taurus-Scorpio axis.
The sun occupies 1° of Scorpio, focusing matters on transformation, elimination, endings, purification, the occult, intensity, uncompromising, sexuality, inheritances, windfalls, taxes, bankruptcy, power and control.
The sun will be conjunct Venus at 4° of Scorpio, where she is still in retrograde, and in detriment, making this a charged time for the feminine sensibilities as we are reviewing matters of wealth and romance.
The moon at 1° of Taurus is in exaltation. Our home life and our emotional selves will move with a more sensual pace, wanting beauty and enjoying our material lives.
Venus and the sun in Scorpio will form an opposition to Uranus at 0° of Taurus. We may find our resources shaken by instability, by changes in technology and the stock market. The moon at 1° of Taurus will be to opposition to Venus at 4° Scorpio retrograde there may be a shift in resources that requires the closing of an account, a break-up, an indiscretion or misuse of power that forces a break-up, and also affects the home situation, such as someone moving out.
This event may be unexpected and shocking in nature, since Uranus will be conjunct the moon at 0° Taurus.
A trine from Saturn at 4° Capricorn will demand a better rebuilding of structures and if something should fall apart under the force of this lunation, Saturn will support us in the rebuilding process.
Mercury 21° Scorpio makes our conversations take on an intense, extreme flavor in which we may be more inclined to trade secrets or be privy to important conversations, Mercury will face a square from Mars at 17° Aquarius, so we should be circumspect in how we speak to others and be aware if we have a tendency to grand stand. Arguments will be combative and belligerent. A semi-square from Saturn at 4° Capricorn will put us in an awkward spot in which we should be careful that our communications do not get us in trouble with authority figures, lest it hamper our advancement in our career field.
Venus at 4° Scorpio is still in retrograde. Prominently, Black Moon Lilith at 8° Aquarius will make a square to Venus, further aggravating any tension already in the mix from the retrograde and the Uranus opposition. One suspects that Black Moon Lilith indicates the role of taboo sexual nature taking over a relationship, of an infidelity, or even an incredibly potent period for sex and self expression for single women.
Mars at 17° Aquarius is in the rebellious phase and will form a semi-square to Saturn at 4° Capricorn, further highlighting a difficulty from authority in career, a project that might be fraught with glitches and take months of work toward resolution. Or, to use Mars appropriate war terms, a campaign that lasts longer than planned, a siege that require extra time and attention.

The Many Little Ones. Profitable to sailors, huntsmen and alchemists. With moon here, in case of an election, plant and sow but do not marry or travel by water.
