The Full Moon on Wednesday May 10, 2017 is at 20° Scorpio. The Full Moon May 2017 astrology is both powerful and fortunate. A well placed Pluto allows for a positive transformation to occur in your life.
The May 2017 Full Moon brings a burst of positive karma to use as you wish. Increased personal power can be used to take full advantage of any lucky breaks coming your way. This is ideal for completing a major overhaul which began with the April 26 new moon.
Full Moon Meaning
A full moon is the Sun opposite Moon which highlights opposing forces or polarities in your life. These can include your ego versus emotions, your work versus home, or what you need versus what you want. Inner tension and external pressures can lead to personal conflict and crises that drain your energy.
The lunar qualities of emotions and instincts reach their peak at a full moon. Use you increased emotional strength and intuition to overcome any challenges. Subconscious awareness allows for an objective and balanced look at your personal relationships. You will clearly see any relationship dynamics or negative feelings causing disharmony.
A full moon is related to the previous new moon. Your April 26 New Moon goals can now be fine-tuned or completed, it is harvest time. Emotional adjustments can be made in response to those new goals. The full moon effect lasts for two weeks up to the next new moon. This waning phase of the moon lasts until the May 25 new moon.
Full Moon May 2017 Astrology
The May 10 full moon at 20°24′ Scorpio makes just one planetary aspect. The sextile to Pluto makes this a heavy and serious full moon but a positive one.
Next to the full moon at 19°36′ Scorpio is a helpful fixed star associated with good fortune, happiness and wealth. To that Jupiter nature is added some Mercury in the form of spiritual and mental powers.
The full moon May 2017 astrology chart below shows a number of other aspects. Although not directly linked to the full moon by aspect, they give a definitely positive influence because the majority are harmonious blue aspects.
Full Moon May 2017 and Pluto
Moon sextile Pluto at a full moon also means the Sun is trine Pluto. The psychological, probing an transforming nature of the this planet can bring together the polarities in your life represented by Sun opposite Moon. Full moon May 2017 sextile Pluto will promote some very intense and deep experiences.
Intense personal interactions will reveal exactly how you feel about someone and how they feel about you. Greater power and influence over your own life allows for a positive transformation. Relationships will evolve to a deeper level or you will be free to move on.
Anything that is in a state of decay in your life can be reborn now. You can clean away clutter in your mind and your environment. You can get to the root cause of any bad habit or addiction to eliminate destructive behaviors.
Full Moon in the Scorpion’s Claw
Full Moon May 2017 at 20°24′ Scorpio Sign aligns with fixed star Zubeneschamali 19°36′ Scorpio Sign. Technically termed Beta Librae, this green star marks the Northern Scale of Libra Constellation.
However, the common name for this star is Zubeneschamali which is an Arabic word meaning the Northern Claw. As shown in the diagram above, the Scales were part of an ancient and larger Scorpion.
An old symbolically name for this star is the Full Price. This relates to the Karmic Scales balancing the good deeds versus bad deeds of a soul.
Full Price means that all karmic debts have been paid and there may even be some credit. Therefore, Beta Librae, Zubeneschamali, the Northern Claw is a fortunate fixed star.
Compare this to Alpha Librae, fixed star Zubenelgenubi at 15°19′ Scorpio. The Southern Claw is symbolically called the Insufficient Price. The Saturn and Mars nature of this star points to the misfortune of having an outstanding karmic debt.
Our full moon star Zubeneschamali has the planetary nature of Jupiter and Mercury. Robinson says it gives “good fortune, high ambition, beneficence, honor, riches, and permanent happiness.”
Modern authors translate Jupiter/Mercury to mean a sharp mind and intellect, with a very powerful psychic quality. Ebertin said it arouses spiritual and mental forces, and gives an immortal name.
Full Moon May 2017 Summary
The May 27 full moon is well placed in relation to Pluto, the planet of transformation and rebirth. Full Moon May 2017 is also well placed in relation to Zubeneschamali, the star of good karma.
This combination means different things for different people. If you feel your life is a constant struggle, use the positive energy of the full moon to improve your life by eliminating something negative.
If you are happy where life is taking you then use your good fortune to help others. Sharing your positive karma can transform someone’s life for the better. Sincere acts of charity will do you no harm either.
The best thing I like about the full moon May 2017 astrology is how it compliments the previous moon phase. The April 27 new moon shone a light on your dark side. The “positive transformation and liberation from guilt, fear and shame” now moves into top gear for the next two weeks.
