Have you concealed a few layers of your persona? Overlooked some nuances or key details? The Scorpio full moon will illuminate those on Wednesday, May 10, 2017—charging the air with mystery and seduction all week long. Scorpio is the zodiac's shaman and the ruler of extremes. It can draw out both our darkest shadows and our most enlightened selves. Ready for a major shift in your life? Turn it over to la luna for some deep processing and healing.
Under the spotlight of the Scorpio full moon, we can expect a lot of interesting intel and colorful confessions to come to light when it reaches its peak around 5:42 p.m. EST. The full moon in May is also known by Native American tribes as the full Flower Moon, a time for burgeoning May flowers and vivid shades of green and pink that follow April's showers.
Under the light of the Scorpio full moon, a spring fever outbreak could become pandemic, and pairings more permanent. Have you been secretly lusting? Intense attraction will be all-consuming—but these very situations could take a dramatic turn. What starts out as a dynamic spark may turn into a heated lovers' quarrel, with some Scorpio jealousy thrown in for good measure. Reacting to our quick-fire emotions would be a bad idea this week—especially the ones on the list of Seven Deadly Sins.
But this Scorpio lunar energy might even push promising partnerships past their tipping point, too. The urge to merge will be stronger for many, with playing-for-keeps Scorpio in the mix. Exciting partnerships could become "officially official" before the week is through.
Legend has it that there are three "phases" of Scorpionic energy. There's the low-vibe, ground-dwelling Scorpion (the symbol for Scorpio), who stings every threatening passer-by; then the observant eagle, taking in its sweeping view from high overhead. The most transcendent Scorpio form is the phoenix, which rises from the ashes of destruction and shows us the remaining signs of life.
