Another month, another full moon to look forward to? Well, I've noticed that instead looking at the full moon phase as a symbol of harvest and spiritual completion, some people actually dread the possible effects of this lunar phase. And though I can't really tell you why, I can tell you on a more positive note that your 2019 blue moon horoscope is here, and I hope it brings you the clarity you've been seeking. May's full moon will take place in the mysterious sign of Scorpio on Saturday, May 18, 2019. However, with three planets retrograde during this time, it's safe to say this won't be your typical full moon.
There are a number of ways to describe a blue moon, but it is most commonly known as a second full moon occurring during one calendrical month in the year. This typically occurs every 2.7 years, so while it's not exactly common, it does occur every so often. And there's a lot more to this lunation than you think. For starters, shadowy Pluto, Scorpio's ruling planet, will be retrograde in Capricorn, alongside its planetary ruler Saturn, and whenever a planet stations retrograde, its energy is turn inward, which in turn, asks us to revisit and reassess situations related to the planet's energetic theme.
At the same time, Jupiter will also be retrograde in Sagittarius, so there will be a total of three heavenly bodies in the process of reflection — and that speaks volumes. There will also be a number of harmonious aspects playing a role in this lunation: a Grand Water Trine among the moon, North Node, and Neptune; and a trine between Pluto and a sun-Mercury conjunction, which will also form a trine to Saturn and the South Node.
Despite the penetrating depth and smoldering passion stemming from watery Scorpio, themes related to restructure, stability, and spiritual purging will be very prominent during this full moon. Scorpio already epitomizes death and transformation, but the first thing that came to mind when I saw the aspects of this lunation is that, in order to obtain the stability you seek, you must first release what no longer serves your highest truth.
Eager to know what it means for your sign? Take a look at your blue moon horoscope below:
