PLANETARY RULER: Pluto in Aquarius

May's Full Moon in Scorpio is also known as the “Flower Moon” as it's peak blooming season in North America. This lunation is more like a black dahlia than a cherry blossom, though…
Astrologically, Full Moons are a moment of surrender and release. And because this is an eclipse, that notion is even more true. This is not a time for manifestation, but a fated portal of transformation. And especially because it’s ruled by Pluto in Aquarius, it’s a potent look at where and how we’re experiencing rebirth in entirely new ways.
Scorpio energy, at its best, knows how to get to the bottom of things- and especially when they’re psychological in nature. It’s a water sign all about going deep and confronting the often uncomfortable process of letting go.
2023’s Full Moon Eclipse in Scorpio is the last one in this sign for many years. There will be a light shown on our deepest emotions that have been awaiting processing. It’s the powerful culmination of a story and should be a cathartic release.
Think back to the corresponding Scorpio New Moon that happened back on October 25th, 2022. You might notice themes that began last fall now culminating. The fixed signs (Taurus, Scorpio, Leo, and Aquarius) will feel this Full Moon most intensely.
