Scorpio tends to go deep into the emotional waters of the hidden, and just when you think you have found the ocean floor, you are invited to plummet further into the unknown. This is the amplification of this Scorpio energy with the intensity of a lunar eclipse. This water sign is intuitive, intense, and passionate and tends to uncover hidden emotions. This Full Moon is a lunar eclipse, heightening the energy and offering experiences to match the mysterious vibe we encounter during a Scorpio Full Moon
Intertwined in the depths, potential lessons and experiences may unfold around sexuality and relationships. A lunar eclipse is a powerful time to heal any core wounds in these areas, especially in situations where there is a sense of power loss. Sexuality is connected to creative energy, another form of expression. This moon is supportive of shadow work, parts therapy, and holds an enormous capacity to heal old wounds or grudges. If something has felt stuck or stagnant for a little while, it might find a way of stirring loose to get your attention.
An eclipse works to clear at a profound level, beyond what we can see, perceive, or know with our human senses. It is a time that is extremely conducive to clearing ancestral patterns, deeply held beliefs in conflict with desires, and generational cycles you have come here to complete. All of this is already underway. There is no need to figure out how or what to do; it is more a matter of honoring your intuitive guidance and making space for human emotions to surface with awareness.
Tips for the May 16th Lunar Eclipse:
Let your mind wander, yet detach from the stories you may encounter. It is a time to open to the greatest good for this next phase of your life experience. Pay attention to relationships or projects calling you to tend to them. It is time to find your footing and observe any changes you are being nudged to make.
Sometimes a relationship or project can feel enchanted all over again if you are willing to take an honest look at what needs to shift. Trust that something new can emerge from the ashes. Do not toss away what you do not understand or have not yet learned how to navigate. Take time and unwind from any old programming that may be getting in the way of the magic and enchantment you desire to experience. This moon is powerful and intense and still can re-enchant your world if you are available and believe it is possible. What does not serve can be let go, and in time you will know the right moves to make. Trust yourself and trust the universe. Scorpio is a water sign – tune in to discern the amount of water needed to support you in moving energy. Sometimes we need to ground into the Earth when there is too much emotion – a walk in the woods or around trees can be a powerful antidote to a water imbalance.
In most areas of the northern hemisphere, flowers are abundant in late spring. Blossoms of brilliant color burst forth in both tree and meadow. Thus, the name of May’s moon, the Full Flower Moon. May also marks the end of hard frost, making this the time of year when farmers begin to seed their fields. This led to May’s moon also being known as the Full Corn Planting Moon. In medieval Europe, the first day of May or Beltane, was the day cows were moved to their rich summer pastures, providing them with rich nourishment to feed their newborn calves. This is why May’s moon is sometimes known as the Full Milk Moon. (Farmer’s Almanac)
“Nations, like stars, are entitled to eclipse. All is well, provided the light returns and the eclipse does not become endless night. Dawn and resurrection are synonymous. The reappearance of the light is the same as the survival of the soul.” ~ Victor Hugo

Full Moons are always powerful times for releasing and letting go, as well as for gratitude and appreciation.
