May 7: Moody and Intimate Conversations

May 7: Moody and Intimate Conversations

Mercury is sextile Neptune at 3:42 a.m.

A full moon in Scorpio at 3:45 a.m.

Moon is trine Neptune at 8:40 a.m.

Moon is opposite Mercury at 9:30 a.m.


The early hours of the day open with Mercury in steady Taurus forming a sextile with Neptune in compassionate Pisces. This sets the tone for grounded, healing connections to occur in our conversations today. At the same time as this sextile, the full moon phase becomes exact by degree, even though it visibly shone with intensity and fullness all night. 


This is the crescendo of the lunar cycle, the peak of the energetic wave, where emotions are at their height, and our energies are intensified. It may have been an evening of full moon insomnia, or a night of potent dreams. Either way, we may wake to a full moon hangover and may need to apply a bit more self-care today. 


The full moon in potent Scorpio comes into a water trine with Neptune in mystic Pisces shortly after, further amplifying the psychic frequencies of the day. This is followed up by a polarizing opposition between the moon and Mercury in sensual Taurus, setting the stage for moody and intimate conversations today.

Moon is inconjunct Venus at 4:03 p.m.


After a morning full of mystical energy, the afternoon skies are a bit calmer, giving a breath and pause to the midday. A fleeting inconjunct angle forms between the moon in emotive Scorpio and Venus is chatty Gemini however, which may leave us contemplating what has come up from the emotional depths, and how it can be reconnected to our relationships. For now, the concepts may feel hard to put into words.



Moon is square Mars at 6:33 p.m.

Moon is sextile Jupiter at 7:39 p.m. and moon void of course begins


In the early evening, the moon in deep Scorpio comes into a friction-inducing square with Mars in aloof Aquarius. This can set the tone for emotional conflict, that may have been activated by the eventful cosmic activity of the early morning. Some of us may be sitting with restlessness and uncomfortable feelings, and others may need to have some hard conversations to work through topics that have arisen. 


Shortly after, the moon moves into an earth trine with benevolent Jupiter in structured Capricorn, which may provide an opportunity for a lucky, and positive outcome in the end. We have the rest of the night to contemplate the day, and to take some rest, as the moon goes void of course.
