Scorpios have the distinction of being one of the three signs with two planetary rulers. And during May of 2022, both of Scorpio's rulers, Mars and Pluto, are busy. Throw in a Full Moon in your house of lovers and enemies, and Scorpios are in for an interesting month.
For approximately five months every year, Pluto enters into retrograde, making everyone more focused on internal issues and solutions than external ones. For Scorpios, who are naturally private and introspective, this can make you seem broody or aloof. Use this time to contemplate what you would like to change in your life, but don't let Pluto's quiet energy cause you to become withdrawn from those you care about.
On the 4th of May, your ruler Mars will enter a sextile with funky Uranus, making you itch for a change. As Mars is currently inhabiting the 6th house, which rules over daily routines and habits, it stands to reason that you may be feeling constrained by your day-to-day life and looking to break free and do something more exciting with yourself. You may want to start a side business or travel. This is a great time to chase creative endeavors and look into making something more "out of the norm" into your ordinary. Uranus will support your desire to turn art or hobbies into something you can do more full-time, and this sextile with Mars will help attract the people you need to make this a reality.
Many astrologers explain the concept of the North Node as your own personal true North. This is the direction in which you should point the compass of your life if you want to find true and lasting happiness. On May 14th, Mars will enter into a sextile with the North Node. This is an excellent time to ask for guidance and actually take it. If you are struggling to find the next step on your path to success and happiness, ask someone you respect either in your life or field of work how they would move forward if they were in your shoes. While Scorpios can be stubborn and sometimes feel that asking for help makes them appear weak, it doesn't. It makes you human and accessible.
The 16th brings the Full Moon and total lunar eclipse into your 7th house. The 7th house is the house of partnership and connections with other people. This can mean lovers, friends, business partners, or even rivals. It signifies how you connect with those around you. The Full Moon is always a time of heightened emotions and strong feelings. This month finds her in the most intense of Zodiacs and bringing a blood moon with her. The couple of days leading up to and after the 16th will be emotionally charged and fraught with change. With such powerful lunar energy sitting in this house, Scorpios, who have been working to make changes the last couple of weeks, are advised to think carefully about treating those around them. Keep in mind that Mercury is in retrograde, which can foul up communications, and you may be coming off harsher than you intend. Make sure you give the people affected by your changes a say in the matter and that you do not have a "my way or the highway" attitude.
Sometimes it takes a few days to energetically recover from a Full Moon and eclipse, and due to Mars movements, it may take Scorpios a few extra days. On the 18th, Mars enters conjunction with Neptune, leading to feelings of sluggishness and a lack of motivation. You may feel like you have an energy hangover from the Full Moon. Do not sink into despair and abandon the projects you have been working so hard on. This slump will only last a few days, and then Mars will be sailing off in a more positive direction.
On May 22nd, your two ruling houses will come together in sextile, and you will be back to feeling like you can take on the world. Pluto's influence will help you to envision a goal or priority, and Mars' assertive energy will give you the push you need to get there, clearing hurdles and naysayers from your path.
Between May 22nd and when Mars enters conjunction with Jupiter on the 29th is an ideal time to pitch ideas to investors, reach out to potential clients or apply for a new or better position. Mars is out in the cosmos, networking and setting you up for success. Now it is just up to you to take the necessary steps down here to make it happen.
The 30th sees the New Moon come right on the heels of your busy and ambitious week. Take a day off from conquering the world and spend time with those you cherish. The New Moon is a time of rebirth and growth, so trust her to do her job while you take a backseat for the day.
