Scorpio-Taurus Full Moon

Taurus-Scorpio Full Moon - Pressure Relieved

"Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much."

Helen Keller

As we roll towards the Scorpio-Taurus Full Moon (May 18th 2:11 PM PDT Scorpio/Taurus), we face increasing tension between individual independence and the importance of working within the framework of a team. Both Venus and Mars change signs this week, marking important shifts in personal interactions. As they move into new signs (Venus into Taurus and Mars into Cancer), they form a helpful sextile that blends charm with assertiveness. Venus is not at all comfortable in Aries and the discomfort is shown through stubborn independence that can be somewhat disruptive. Once Venus arrives in Taurus on Wednesday, our comfort levels are generally improved. However, Mars moves into Cancer, also on Wednesday. While we retire the sharp tongue of Mars in Gemini, we may find ourselves assuming a more protective, defensive crouch. As we adapt to these shifts, we begin to find increasing intuitive wisdom and slowly come to understand that working in cooperation with others — teamwork — is the most productive option available if we hope to make any tangible progress. Just before the Full Moon, Venus makes a somewhat prickly conjunction with Uranus and it may seem as though the constraints of cooperative effort are too restrictive. However, the Full Moon seems to allow some of the pressure to escape. We are likely to find ourselves looking for some way to lock in a steady and reliable approach that values some degree of acceptability instead of pushing to break new ground or pursue grand, visionary schemes.

Egos take a back seat to smooth progress under Sunday's Virgo Moon. Charm blends with assertiveness nicely and we look for amiable ways to move beyond any restrictions and disappointments. Expectations can be a bit tricky on Monday. Over-optimism may obscure some very important, tangible progress. Charm wears a bit thin on Tuesday and we may be pushed to move faster than what feels comfortable. However, Venus moves into Taurus on Wednesday and we gain at least some sense of restored comfort and conflicts seem to soften. Passionate emotions may be uncontrollable on Thursday but we also gain increasing access to intuitive wisdom. The atmosphere has shifted away from sharp, logical analysis. Intellectual insight may still offer some clues but intuition fills in the gaps and helps us to find important answers. The Scorpio-Taurus Full Moon on Saturday provides a pressure relief valve and has us looking for a way to lock in a new, practical, and widely acceptable approach to making future progress.
