Natural Awakenings Fairfield & Southern Litchfield Counties

Astrological Energy for May

Apr 30, 2022 11:00AM ● By Alexa Lane

The Sun entered the sign of Taurus on April 21. As May moves further into Taurus season, the energy slows down after the Spring Equinox. By May 22, the momentum accelerates as the Sun moves into the air sign Gemini.

The astrological energy for May encourages entering into quiet reflection, communing with the Divine Source and cultivating a spiritual practice rooted in nature. Since it is Taurus season, the spiritual energy may be felt physically as energy awakening within the body. The potential of the season can offer healing and regeneration.

Taurus Season

Taurus is a fixed earth sign. It is ruled by the planet Venus. Taurus is associated with the body, sensuality, instinctual drives, music and the natural world. It values serenity, security and stability. Engaging in body-mind practices, sitting quietly and listening to music, gardening or taking a peaceful walk are ways to embody Taurus energy.

Scorpio Full Moon in May

On May 16, there is a Full Moon, a Total Lunar Eclipse, occurring at 25 degrees and 17 minutes in the sign of Scorpio. Readers can personalize this Full Moon by finding the point of 25 degrees and 17 minutes of Scorpio on their astrological birth charts. The house this point lies in reveals the area of life where readers may experience the astrological energy at a greater intensity.

The sign of Scorpio represents a sustained emotional intensity. It possesses a deep interest in what lies below the surface of the conscious mind. Through psychological analysis, Scorpio seeks to uncover the unconscious. The revelations that emerge from this psychological process can inspire transformation and rebirth.

Taurus and Scorpio are opposite zodiac signs. The Taurus-Scorpio polarity strives to balance the security and stability of physical existence and the desire to change and transform. 

During this Scorpio Full Moon, a ritual that brings the Taurus-Scorpio polarity into balance can help heal and release old wounds that inhibit transformation and manifestation. Furthermore, letting go of unproductive energy can be transmuted into creative energy.

Full Moon Ritual

A Full Moon is a culmination and a powerful time for inner exploration. It is a time for being creative, expressing gratitude, releasing negative energy and forgiving yourself and others. Practicing a Full Moon Ritual helps to let go of the past and move forward, unencumbered by karmic patterns that deplete energy.

The Scorpio Full Moon offers an opportunity to dive deep into the emotional waters of the psyche and soul and emerge with wisdom and power. 


• Create a clean, clutter-free space.

• Clear the energy of the space by diffusing essential oils or by using crystals such as clear quartz (enhances spiritual aware- ness), amethyst (calming and protective),
black tourmaline (releases negativity) or obsidian (releases negativity).

• Sit in a comfortable seated position.

• Take several deep breaths.

• Write down any habit or unproductive thought pattern to be released.
