May 14th brings an all- or- nothing Full Moon in Scorpio, the sign of power, merging, secrets and the Shadow. Full Moons represent results, and the Moon will cross over Saturn Rx (intensified rules and boundaries) a few hours before it opposes the Sun in Taurus. This suggests a finish line, or deeper commitment (to yourself or another). Venus (love, money, self-esteem) in Aries squares Pluto Rx in Capricorn on the same day, and conjuncts Uranus on May 15th. Pluto is Scorpio’s ruler, and Uranus is the planet of sudden change. These aspects will up the ante on this already intense Moon, suggesting that Venus-themed issues will be urgent. As always, aspects to Uranus are wild cards, so endings (and beginnings) can catch you off guard. There’s tension between Scorpio’s fixed insistence on having things a certain way, and Venus’ agitation for immediate change, freedom or competition. Overall, courageous honesty is the best way to approach this potent mix of energies: you can’t hide from what’s culminating now.
The Full Moon illuminates your sector of shared resources, bringing results in the areas of money or intimacy. Circumstances can reveal hidden resources (financial/emotional) or illuminate the fact that you don’t have enough (or you’re not getting/giving enough). Saturn’s influence suggests that deeper boundaries or limits will be established. Venus conjunct Uranus (in your sign) and square Pluto Rx in your career sector indicates that reputation and ambition (personal and professional) will be put to the test. A job, career path or relationship will have high stakes, and you may be surprised by what you’re wiling to to do in order to win (or cut your losses).
- Culminations: debts, taxes, loans, your partners finances, physical/emotional intimacy, personal boundaries
- The trigger point: your public identity, professional status, personal goals
The Full Moon in your relationship sector can push a partnership (business or romantic) across the finish line, or to a deeper level of commitment. Saturn’s energy insists that it’s time to formalize it or let it go. Venus (your ruler) conjuncts Uranus in your hidden sector and squares Pluto Rx in your opportunities sector, suggesting that a surprising revelation may be part of the package. The desire to go further, explore or do more (with or without another person) was (until now) undisclosed. Explosive secrets or a new relationship with hidden/forbidden qualities can be jarring and exciting. One thing’s for certain; if you’ve been holding back or feeling repressed, these influences will release you.
- Culminations: personal or professional partnerships
- The trigger point: secrets, hidden attractions, overlooked desires
The Full Moon in your sector of routine can be the deciding factor regarding what can’t be avoided. Health matters can also reach a conclusion, but if you haven’t been taking care of yourself, you may have to deal with medical fallout. Saturn’s influence underlines the fact that you have an absolute obligation to another, or yourself. Venus conjunct Uranus in your social sector squares Pluto Rx in your sector of hidden resources, supplying ammunition from an introduction or inspiration on how to revamp your public image. New input from external sources can push you to make changes to your health/exercise/diet, or draw the line when it comes to a duty or task. New contacts can also feel obsessive, fated or out of your control. Focus on what needs to be done in your immediate environment in order to ground and centre yourself.
- Culminations: co-worker relationships, work tasks, health, duties to others
- The trigger point: friends, groups, unexpected romance, new introductions
The Full Moon in your sector of self-expression can bring results for a deeply desired, personal/creative goal, or even a new romance. Saturn suggests that this should stick. At the very least, you’ll be pushed to take your desires seriously. Venus conjunct Uranus in your career sector squares Pluto Rx in your relationship sector, suggesting an unexpected career break (in your favour) or increased ambition. A win or new project may be dropped in your lap, and before you say “I can’t” know that the Full Moon says “You must.”A new romantic attraction can feel intense, and may involve work or your public reputation.
- Culminations: creative project, children, pregnancy, new romance
- The trigger point: ambitions, future goals, career, public status
The Full Moon in your domestic sector signals a major shift with family, relationships, or a home business. Saturn’s influence points to a solidification of domestic responsibilities, where you either dive in or move on. Venus conjunct Uranus in your opportunities sector squares Pluto in your sector of routine, suggesting that a chance connection, message, trip or adventure will play a role in pushing you to wrap things up at home. There may be tension between what’s risky/exciting and your current obligations. Venus/Uranus is in positive aspect to your Sun, so this new development could be good for you, as long as you don’t take any shortcuts. Make sure there are no loose ends in your immediate environment.
- Culminations: home, family, renovations, relocation, home business
- The trigger point: long distance travel, long-distance romance, education, publishing, legal matters

Whether you’re communicating or coming to decision, this influence will leave no doubt about where you stand, or what someone else wants you to know. Venus conjunct Uranus in your sector of shared resources squares Pluto Rx in your sector of self-expression, suggesting that unexpected developments around money or intimacy may be part of the package. Venus can also help you break through an intimacy barrier or give your financial habits a much needed overhaul. Financial documents or intense discussions with a partner reveal more than expected, and you may feel pushed into a decision before you’re ready. However, know that the Full Moon insists that the time is now.
- Culminations: discussions, phone calls, emails, answers, signing documents, verbal/written commitments
- The trigger point: debts, taxes, loans, your partner’s finances, physical/emotional intimacy
The Full Moon in your security sector can hi-light a financial/emotional shortfall, or reveal hidden resources/savings/sources of income. Saturn insists that you need to take responsibility for your needs and security, so the theme will be how you can make it work for yourself. Venus (your ruler) conjunct Uranus in your partnership sector squares Pluto in your domestic sector, continuing the theme of relationship freedom, independence and detaching from the past. Whether changes hit an existing relationship or a new attraction sets your world on fire, you’ll be compelled to jump feet first into this new chapter. You’ll be fine as long as you remember that you’re the only person who can supply your essential needs.
- Culminations: earned money, emotional security, self-esteem
- The trigger point: committed relationships, new romance
The Full Moon in your sign signals a major threshold crossing. While a goodbye may be part of it, know that this Moon is amplifying your power and resolve. Saturn’s influence is giving you a no-nonsense approach to all personal and business dealings. You’ll be ready to move on, and if someone is not interested in playing by your rules, they’ll be left behind. Venus conjunct Uranus in your sector of routine squares Pluto in your communication sector, suggesting that developments in work/health/duties will play a major role in the events of this Moon. You may surprise yourself (and everyone else) as you discover your second wind, push for added respect/recognition or lay down the law. When it comes to bargaining or hammering out a contract/agreement, you’ll have significant weight.
- Culminations: your public identity, personal goals, relationships
- The trigger point: co-worker relationships, duties, service to others, health, daily routines
The Full Moon in your hidden sector can reveal buried potential, overlooked information or secrets that have been simmering for awhile. Saturn’s influence ties this into a major part of your life (job/lifestyle/relationship) that you’ve been trying to release for some time. This could be a final, final goodbye, or a deeper release of yet another layer. Venus conjunct Uranus in your sector of self-expression squares Pluto in your security sector, suggesting that what’s new, exciting or compelling will push you to let go of the past. Or, reveal what you think you truly deserve. Venus/Uranus is in positive aspect to your Sun, so this could signal a life-changing development that propels you into a demanding but positive new chapter (an intense new romance, a pregnancy, a demanding creative opportunity). Competition and the drive to increase your security will ensure that you bring your A game.
- Culminations: secrets, letting go, final release, unacknowledged issues
- The trigger point: creative/artistic projects, children/pregnancy, new romance, emotional gambles, positive risks
The Full Moon in your social sector can put you in the spotlight regarding public appearances, group associations or public reputation. Saturn (your ruler) adds the themes of authority and leadership; you may be put in charge, or you’ll be approaching someone else who calls the shots. Venus conjunct Uranus in your domestic sector squares Pluto Rx in your sign, suggesting that rapid and unexpected developments with home/family will play a role in this Full Moon. Whether it’s an unexpected move, refresh or establishment of new rules, you’ll want to call the shots. It’s ok to set down some boundaries, but remember that your current domestic situation is nothing like it was in the past; the same rules do not apply.
- Culminations: friends, groups, external authority, your position in the collective
- The trigger point: home, family, relocation
The Full Moon in your career sector indicates a shift at work, with management or with your career goals. Saturn’s influence points to a solidification of your responsibilities, or moving on from an unproductive job situation. Venus conjunct Uranus (your ruler) in your communication sector squares Pluto Rx in your hidden sector, indicating that sudden announcements/discoveries will play a role in career developments. Watch for a flash of insight, clarifying piece of information or instinctive response that helps you jump over the competition, or situates you in a whole, new playing field. Alternatively, communications with siblings could come out of the blue and trigger a radical re-evaluation of your future.
- Culminations: career, public status, dealings with management, job search
- The trigger point: emails, phone calls, discussions, announcements, introductions, conversations with siblings
The Full Moon in your opportunities sector can solidify a new (or distant) development, or signal an official conclusion (graduation, an end to a legal matter). Saturn’s energy makes it binding; there’s one, particular path that you are now meant to walk down, even if another path is permanently off limits. Venus conjunct Uranus in your security sector squares Pluto Rx in your social sector, indicating competition for money or satisfaction will play a role. You may feel uncharacteristically pushy or entitled when it comes to going after what you want. On the other hand, you may not have even been aware that you wanted this until it dropped in your lap. Either way, you’re being put on notice that you shouldn’t settle for less.
- Culminations: long-distance travel, education, mentors, legal matters, publishing
- The trigger point: earned money, emotional security, self-esteem
