Full Moon in Scorpio tonight at 8:42pm Pacific. Keep an eye on the eastern sky and you'll see it rise! Mercury is in tight opposition to Saturn today, asking us to be serious and responsible in our decisions and communications.
The Full Moon tonight is the exclamation point on this lovely Beltane weekend. This ancient Celtic festival celebrates the height of Spring and the Sun in Taurus. We honor the blooming Earth and the promise of an abundant Summer.
Astrologically, we have Mercury cavorting around in it's home sign of Gemini for the next several weeks. There is a Mercury Retrograde from May 18th to June 11th, so try to make major decisions and purchases before then.
Venus, the planet of love and beauty, will be in Cancer in a couple of weeks. The focus turns to nurturing ourselves, our relationships and connecting with our families. It's a great time to make home improvements, but be careful about overeating. The New Moon in Taurus on May 18th will be influenced by Venus in opposition with Pluto - the catalyst for evolution and catharsis. It's a great time to reflect on what your needs are and if they are getting met by your lifestyle and relationships. Mercury Retrograde can clear the air between people, so speak your truth.
