Saturn Opposes Mercury Under The Full Moon In Scorpio – May 5, 2012 – Avoiding Mayhem, Maximizing Potential
My eye on the sky.
May 5th is a date to keep in mind. The Moon is full in Scorpio late in the evening around midnight in the US. Realize the Moon is full when it opposes the Sun so this is the first opposition we’ll be dealing with.
The same day, Mercury in Aries opposes Saturn in Libra, exact. There will be pressure to act with this aspect, particularly where partnership is concerned. Last, Mars in Virgo will be opposing Chiron and Neptune in Pisces. This aspect describes an injured animal, lashing out in confusion, to potentially cut the person trying to help.
Clearly there’s a lot to navigate here. What’s heartening is we also have a Grand Trine in Earth in play which should calm people enough to prevent mayhem.
To give you an idea how this might play, let’s say there is a bar fight in the evening, under the Full Moon. The people nearby are likely to be level-headed as opposed to seeing a riot be triggered and if the parties wind up in the emergency room, the staff with be calm and grounded. On the flip side, if the staff in the emergency room is losing it, the patients are liable to be patient, so you get the idea here. While this is bound to be an intense day, someone is going to have their feet on the ground, and that person or persons will grace (Jupiter) the others.
When I see such an energetic day on the horizon, I tend to think the period that precedes it is all set-up for the culmination or finale that occurs on that day. This has been a helpful way of seeing things for a number of year so it’s a proven technique.
In this case, think of May 5th as a day you act with compassion (Mars/Neptune) as you make a decision (Mercury/Saturn), with the lights turned up (Full Moon) and a grounded perspective (Jupiter/Grant trine). Between now and then, get ready to pull this off, test of your ability is coming.
