"I finally know the difference between pleasing and loving, obeying and respecting. It has taken me so many years to be okay with being different, and with being this alive, this intense."

May 14 brings us one of the most intense and karmic full Moons of the year. Get ready for more shedding and letting go. We've been working on this theme since the fall of 2012. During this potent lunation, Venus (the love planet) will square Pluto (god of the underworld) thus making our relationships dark, mysterious and possibly on the verge of explosion.

Depending on the level of integrity in our current intimate partnerships, this is a do-or-die Moon. Saturn will not stand for half-measures or fickle commitments. It's all about endurance and the long haul. Especially while the cosmic taskmaster is in Scorpio, we have no choice but to go deep -- or go home. This full Moon meets up with Saturn to underscore themes of digging into our shadow material, releasing all that no longer serves us and preparing for yet another death-rebirth theme.

We live many lives within one biography, and the annual Scorpio full Moon has a way of signifying the ending of one layer of self, one more story in our lives that began last fall. It's a reminder not to get too attached to our stories, as they are constantly changing. Scorpio is a fixed Water sign, and has the desire to hold on to an emotional experience as long as possible. This can be beautiful or devastating depending on what we are clinging to and how.

During this full Moon, we're being asked to release our emotional grip so that we may build up the courage to embody that which we're so afraid of losing on the outside.
