Full Moon in sidereal Taurus/Scorpio
“All the Colors of the Earth” photos by Lyn Dalebout
This week’s post is a bit abbreviated given I am on semi-vacation. And the reason it’s a tad late fits with this particular Full Moon: I’ve been out in the wild Earth (Taurus) watching some of my favorite Grizzly Bear moms and cubs (Scorpio mirrors fierce Mother Bear). Thanks for your understanding!
The planets are dispersed widely around the entire zodiac belt at this time. This ‘splash’ pattern can create a sense of juggling many balls at once, feeling scattered, not sure you can hold it all together. Trust that’s how you are meant to feel, given the scattered nature of the planets themselves, not to mention the chaotic planetary forces at work. Work toward keeping focused on the task in front of you NOW, in each moment.
Of major significance this will be the first of three Mars/South Lunar Node conjunction on June 7. Read on!
MINI-READINGS: Consider a sidereal mini-reading with me for $44 (the number of living your Mastery on Earth). I will discuss where last year’s historic Total Solar Eclipse is still taking place in your chart, along with other personal transits for 2018. You will get a whole lot of information! Please send me an email if that is of interest to you. Thank you!
I post twice a month, on the New Moon (which includes the two weeks of New Moon and First Quarter Moon) and on the Full Moon (which includes the two weeks of Full Moon and Last Quarter Moon). As you work with and within the natural flow of time and supportive cosmic energies of each unique SolLunar Cycle, life will flow with more ease and grace. My interpretations and predictions are based on the true sidereal astronomical alignments.

Full Moon in sidereal Taurus
Here is a brief synopsis of the Full Moon characteristics that hold true for every Full Moon from my from my friend and sidereal colleague Nick Anthony Fiorenza at Lunar Planner.
“The Full Moon marks the point of coition in the lunar cycle, the climax, the point of excitement, a time of celebration. The day just after the Full Moon is a time for the realization of the theme to emerge, of what the activities of the first half of the lunar cycle, culminating into the enthusiasm of the Full Moon, are really about. Relax and allow this realization to occur. There is no need to force it as it surfaces on its own.”
Tue May 29
Full Moon in sidereal Taurus/Scorpio: Today’s Full Moon is linked to the key stars of Aldebaran in Taurus and Antares in Scorpio. Both legendary stars are often associated with events linked to nuclear power/issues along with major political events. This full-force Full Moon amps up current pressures and confrontations. You may feel either energized or polarized about finances or physical health. Challenging weather events continue especially in regards to earth shifts and water events.
Wed May 30
Mercury in Taurus sextile Chiron in Pisces: With this kind aspect, helpful advice comes your way or you offer your supportive ideas to another.
Thu May 31
Moon/Vesta/Saturn conjunction in sidereal Sagittarius: Give yourself tasks to complete or make time for focused study today so this super-charged aspect doesn’t take you down the path of feeling down or depressed. It is forthright which can lead to differences of opinion being expressed forcefully.
Fri June 1
Mercury in Taurus trine Mars in sidereal Capricorn: This aspect leads to exceptional physical productivity. Mercury rules vehicles and technological devices so it’s a great day to clean out your car, upgrade your software, get organized in your business.
Moon in Sagittarius opposite Venus in Gemini: Tensions between needs and wants arise especially in regards to travel plans, educational choices.
Moon/Pluto conjunction in Sagittarius: Churning frustration or feeling fiercely driven to achieve or learn something new are aspects of this monthly union. Steer clear of forcing others to follow your agenda.
Sat June 2
Venus in Gemini trine Neptune in Aquarius square Juno in Pisces: This busy, gregarious aspect creates all kind of dialogue between partners, beloveds, friends, naturally leading to important decisions.
Pallas Athene in Gemini opposite Saturn in Sagittarius: This aspect is good for hammering out details of a plan or strategy and is good for the designing phase of a project.
Mercury in Taurus quincunx Saturn in Sagittarius: Practical Mercury in Taurus is challenged or guided by big-thinking Saturn in Sagittarius. Be a practical visionary, bringing those big ideas down to earth.
Moon/Mars conjunction in Capricorn: This aspect is exact early tomorrow morning but is being strongly felt today. It can lead to tensions in the Earth erupting or you can experience your own emotional earthquake. It is also a trigger for the upcoming June 7 Mars/South Lunar Node conjunction. Pay close attention to what is erupting, opening in and around you.
Sun June 3 – Mon June 4
Moon in Capricorn trine Sun/Mercury in Taurus: You can feel naturally energized, organized and accomplish much on many levels.
Tue June 5
Sun/Mercury conjunction is sidereal Taurus: When the illuminating Sun exactly conjuncts mental Mercury, you can receive flashes of insight or be extremely mentally focused. Harness this laser-like ability to push though any procrastination of recent days.
Venus in Gemini opposite Pluto in Sagittarius: Dark shadows can arise between partners or beloveds to be brought into the light and dealt with. Investigate new ways to save or invest your money.
Last Quarter Moon
Here is a description of the qualities of the Last Quarter Moon phase compliments of my friend and sidereal colleague, Nick Anthony Fiorenza at Lunar Planner:
“This phase completes with our Inner Needs surfacing to consciousness, to become aware of what is important to self and what is not. Knowing now what our Truth is, it is time to consciously live it. Doing so provides a choice for others to also live theirs. Changing allows us to spiral to a new octave of experience—one that will eventually sprout in the next lunar cycle to come.”
Wed June 6
Last Quarter Moon: Moon/Neptune in Aquarius square Sun/Mercury in Taurus: Neptune’s spacey, illusory or imaginative qualities color this turning-the-bend energy of looking toward your future. It is best used by focusing in your power to reimagine what you desire, or realize that certain things/relationship may never happen because it is not in your best interest.
Thu June 7
Mars/South Lunar Node conjunction in Capricorn: I am re-posting below what I wrote for May 12 concerning the upcoming, exceedingly challenging Mars retrograde this summer. Today’s exact conjunction of confrontational Mars with the South Lunar Node, which always brings to light hidden issues of the past, will surely make for major news headlines. Pay special attention to what is happening in your life today as possible prelude to what’s will unfold for you this summer/early autumn.
Here’s a mini-tutorial on the upcoming Mars retrograde, which I will be elaborating on in the coming weeks. Every other year, Mars goes retrograde. This year, it will happen from June 26 – August 27. However the ‘shadow’ period that defines the whole cycle runs form May 12 – October 8.
Mars turning retrograde implies it’s time to not push or be pushy, but be willing to take things more slowly and examine which direction you might ultimately want to go. Some of you might do a remodel of your space, and you might expect some delays in the construction process. Some of you will decide to close shop for good. Some of you will slow yourselves down physically by an injury or by choosing surgery during this time frame. From the collective perspective, this promises to be a time of greater drama and revelation, or going to battle as Mars aligns in forceful Capricorn. In addition, as this Mars retrograde is aligned with the South Lunar Node during the entire cycle, much will be brought to light about past abuses of power or the need for institutional reform.
Sun in Taurus square Neptune in Aquarius: This annual tense square allows you to stop running from what’s been chasing you, and to face the truth head on, be that truth be something you have been denying or something you are deeply desiring. Magic and miracles are also at work today, if you believe.
Fri June 8
Moon/Juno conjunction in Pisces: This late night aspect is perfect for bonding, highly intuitive communication, and merging non-verbally. Some may discover something they don’t want to know.
Sat June 9
Moon/Uranus in Aries: This always electrical, chaotic, accident-prone alignment puts you on notice to be cautious as you engage in activities, travel, interact in your relationships. It is eruptive, spontaneous and can create unexpected consequences.
Sun Jun 10
Moon in Aries square Mars in Capricorn: Like yesterday’s aspect, shocks or sudden eruptive mood shifts are possible. High tensions exist between one’s individual needs versus one’s responsibilities to family and society.
Mon Jun 11
Sun in Taurus quincunx Pluto in Sagittarius: A need to change presents itself to help you move beyond your comfort zone.
Tue Jun 12
Balsamic Moon: Sun/Moon in Taurus: New Moon occurs tomorrow around noon so use these productive, work-focused energies of the last day of this SolLunar Cycle finishing things up, tying up loose ends, spending time in your holy garden if you are fortunate to have one.
Happy New Moon tomorrow!
