May 12-18 Astrology Forecast: Healing Full Moon in Scorpio

scorpio phoenix

A Scorpio Full Moon aligns with a Grand Trine to radiate healing and transformation. Well-being is supported by a Jupiter-Chiron trine, while a peaking T-square challenges relationships to evolve to the next level. Plus six Mercury aspects and more!

5/12 (Mon)

Geminian Mercury must be especially eager for conversation this week, since it’s making six aspects! Its first, a trine to Libran Mars, smoothly stimulates learning, communication, relationships and creative expression.

5/13 (Tue)

No major astrology events.

5/14 (Wed)

A trine between wounded healer Chiron and expansive Jupiter provides flowing assistance for mentoring and healing. Spiritual healing and mentoring (Chiron in Pisces) and family healing (Jupiter in Cancer) receive special support.

This trine is part of a Jupiter-Saturn-Chiron Grand Trine that started on 4/20, peaks on 5/20 and ends on 6/24.

Jupiter and Chiron don’t just trine each other today, they both also aspect Vesta. Jupiter’s square amplifies Vesta’s core meaning of devoted service to a higher cause. Chiron’s quincunx asks what adjustments can be made to bring healing or wise counsel into the areas you’re serving.

Today’s Venus-Pluto square is part of a challenging aspect pattern peaking tomorrow. Learn about this Venus-Jupiter-Uranus-Pluto T-square.

Scorpio Full Moon

A Scorpio Full Moon shines forth at 3:16 PM (23°54′ Scorpio). Examine how you’re doing in the areas of transformation, sacred sexuality, shared resources, psychological introspection and investigation. Release or transform whatever’s not working.


Because this Full Moon aligns with the Jupiter-Saturn-Chiron Grand Trine, that aspect pattern’s energies of healing and mentoring are significantly enhanced. With the Moon conjunct Saturn, redirect any feelings of moodiness or depression by getting busy with a project or taking some time for quiet reflection.

Sabian Symbol

This lunation’s Sabian Symbol is, “Crowds coming down the mountain to listen to one inspired man.” Remember that you are also part of one divine consciousness that permeates all things. Once you connect with this source, you too can be the inspired speaker!

Until then, hang around people who are more awake than you are. You’ll benefit from the osmosis effect!

With so much power being generated by a Mercury-Pluto quincunx, thinking and speech could be a bit clumsy. Adjust the pace of your thought and communication as needed to take advantage of this power boost.

5/15 (Thu)

You could be entertaining strong, harmonious thoughts about love, money and creativity, as well as uniqueness and humanitarian service, with Mercury sextile Venus and Uranus. Brilliant insights and intuitive flashes could pop in easily under these aspects.

T-square: Venus-Jupiter-Uranus-Pluto

Some of the Cardinal Grand Cross‘ waning energy is rekindled by Arean Venus. Her T-square with Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto focuses the energy of revolutionary transformation into relationships, money and creativity. Release what doesn’t serve you in these areas, be your authentic self, and follow your intuitive flashes!

This Venus-Jupiter-Uranus-Pluto T-square started on 5/11, peaks today and ends on 5/21. Today’s Venus-Uranus conjunction is part of this aspect pattern.

5/16 (Fri)

Pallas Athena transits Virgo today thru 8/10. How can you serve others with your feminine assertiveness, strategic planning and practical creativity?

5/17 (Sat)

Focusing scattered thoughts may be a necessary precursor to effective mentoring and healing as Chiron squares Geminian Mercury.

5/18 (Sun)

Today’s Venus-Jupiter square is part of the waning Venus-Jupiter-Uranus-Pluto T-square that ends on 5/21.

Extra mental effort may be required to overcome constipated communication as Saturn quincunxes Mercury.

Kite: Juno-Jupiter-Saturn-Chiron

The Jupiter-Saturn-Chiron Grand Trine expands into a Kite as Juno joins the party. Any issues arising in your committed partnerships – be they romantic or platonic – can be more easily healed while this four-pointed aspect pattern is active. It starts today, peaks on 5/29 and ends on 6/4.

Void-of-Course Moons

It’s best to avoid starting important new projects or making major purchases during void-of-course Moons. “Business as usual” is the optimal strategy. Void-of-course Moons occur when the Moon has made her last major Ptolemaic aspect, but has not yet moved into her next sign.

  • 5/11, 8:51 pm – 5/12, 9:09 pm (Scorpio)
  • 5/14, 3:17 pm – 5/15, 1:45 am (Sagittarius)
  • 5/16, 3:44 am – 5/17, 4:13 am (Capricorn)
