!! OMG Stars: Full Moon in Scorpio !!

Amelia Ehrhardt OMG Stars horoscopesWelcome to OMG Stars: an astrology column written by Amelia Ehrhardt (@soft_aspects) a queer astrologer currently practicing from bed. Every two weeks, on the new and full moons, I’ll give you a report of the upcoming astrology with a focus on how to navigate current events (astrological and global) with the help of the *stars*.

May 7th – May 22nd
Full moon in Scorpio, a lot of retrograde, and a Venus-Neptune square

The astrology of this lunation is characterized by a lot of action to the full moon. This moon sits in a trine to dreamy Neptune, a sextile to transformative Pluto, and a stressful square to Mars. Trines speak to supportive flow between planets, and with the moon in the fixed water sign of Scorpio supported by Neptune the mutable water sign of Pisces, this astrology gives us an opportunity to check in deep on our emotional state.

Full moons always speak to a closure of some sort of cycle, whether it be a cycle we entered at the preceding new moon, or cycles that relate to the full moon’s sign or house it occupies in your chart. In Scorpio this moon speaks to passionate and transformative energy.

Scorpio never forgets a wound, so with a full moon here we might see some old hurts coming back up – particularly with Neptune’s murkiness added to the mix.

This thematic continues when Venus stations retrograde on May 12th, where it will be joining Saturn and Pluto, and be later joined by Jupiter, in a retrograde cycle. Retrogrades speak to a turning-inward of planet’s energy. Venus, planet of our values and bonds, stations retrograde every 18 months, leading us to go deep inside ourselves emotionally.

Again, in the context of the astrology leading up to it, this is a lot of time to navel-gaze at our feelings (and given our present collective situation, it’s not like we needed any extra incentive to zone in). Venus stays retrograde until June 25th, and this 43 day period gives us an opportunity to contemplate – and likely re-examine – our values.

As we continue to push through collective enforced solidarity by staying home and facing new measures of socialization, this retrogradation is a good time to go through your own shit, on your own.

!! OMG Stars: A new astrology column !!

Amelia Ehrhardt astrologer
Welcome to OMG Stars: an astrology column written by Amelia Ehrhardt (@soft_aspects), a queer astrologer currently practicing from bed.

Every two weeks, on the new and full moons, I’ll give you a report of the upcoming astrology with a focus on how to navigate current events with the help of the *stars*.

April 22nd – May 7th
New moon in Taurus, Mars-Venus trine

Non-astrological report: we’re still the fuck home.

Now, let’s dig deeper…

On April 22nd at 22:41 EST, the new moon in Taurus was exact. Taurus is the part of our psyche, the part of our society, that has to do with the resources we need to feel safe. Taurus is about the physical objects in our lives, and the sensory information between those objects and our bodies is how Taurus knows itself to be. Take the renewal of this new moon to relate to your sensual landscape. Touch the objects in your house; feel your arm underneath your hand as that of another; use this time of solitude to find ways that physical stimulus from objects can remind you that you’re in a body. Bust out the Hitachi!

The next two weeks are characterized by a Mars-Venus trine in the air signs of Aquarius and Gemini that will be active until April 30th and palpable through until the full moon on May 7th. Mars and Venus trining in these air signs brings flow and ease to our collective capacity for systemic thinking. Our energies and our values will be aligned, with our care for community and thirst for information feeding each other. This is the astrology of social media. Turn off your screen usage reports.

After the jump, you’ll find horoscopes for all the signs of the zodiac, written for both sun and rising signs.
