– Corollary to Full Moon 27° Scorpio
of May 18, 2019 ~ 5:11 pm EST / May 18, 2019 ~ 09:11 pm UST
This new moon lunation occurs at 15° Scorpio, making all our experiences dark, deep, sexy, intense, and transformative. As the sun and the moon join in Scorpio, they will be trined by Neptune at 13° Pisces. This can be a deep and creative time for artists, a spiritual time in which we feel aligned with a calling or a purpose greater than ourselves. We may be letting go of beliefs or things that have gone stagnant and stale, or alternatively, we might be experiencing endings and with endings, beginnings.
Black Moon Lilith at 10° Aquarius will also square the sun and the moon at 15° Scorpio, indicating the presence of the taboo, the sexual shadow side, the fiercely independent female impulse. This may exemplify a magnetic female in your life who is pushing the envelope of the ordered ego-centered life, or it could be an aspect of yourself wreaking havoc or change, and the same old same old will no longer suffice until the inner magnetism and independence and sexual spirit is satisfied.
Mercury is at 8° of Sagittarius. We might be prone to be expansive in our conversations, philosophical and asking big questions, our communications will be upbeat and happy.
Venus at 26° Libra is still in retrograde phase, where our relationships are the focus, particularly in matters of marriage. If our romantic relationships are strong we may be reconnecting with our partners and discovering more about ourselves through, but alternatively, past romances may be coming to the surface and previous lovers may find their way into our lives. If we have been unfaithful or our partner’s have been, now will be the time when covert romances will come to light. If these relationships have lost the essential ingredients that compel love to last, now may be a time of endings and break-ups, and the Scorpio new moon and sun will make this more possible than ever.
Venus at 26° Libra retrograde will trine Mars at 25° Aquarius. Quickening our interactions between the sexes, whether it be increased activity and events or increased friction, there may be a tendency to argue or rock the boat with Mars in detached and defiant Aquarius, and Mars too will be aggravated by a square from Jupiter at 29° Scorpio, a degree of ending. This is not a time period good for having serious relationship talks, but it may not be a force under our control, given these numerous fractious aspects.
Venus will also face an opposition from Uranus at 29° Aries, one again, a degree emphasizing endings. Mars rules Aries, so the shocking and rebellious energy of Uranus will be charging Mars, and the domain of the masculine, the active force. We may experience an unexpected event or discover something new.
The North Node at 0° Leo will square Venus at 26° of Libra and square Uranus at 29° of Aries. We may find fated events surround us, inexplicable feelings regarding past or new romantic relationships marked by unexpected instability. Our usual focus and our ego center may be thrown out of balance by difficult choices that concern this Libra-Aries axis of relationship to self and relationship to others.
~18TH MANSION OF THE MOON: AL KALB~
The Heart. Causes discord, sedition, conspiracy against princes and rulers, and revenge from enemies, but frees captives and helps building. With moon here, plant, sow, travel, and go to war.
