Some truths cannot be concealed.

The Total Lunar Eclipse of May 16th is at 25°16’ in Scorpio. At 06:13 CEDT. If you’re feeling you’re in a tsunami of change then trust it, and let go of what is no longer serving you in the present. Be it “stuff”, a relationship, a job, you have to work out how you can work constructively with this energy.
The Sun is conjunct the North Node this is our destiny, it’s in Taurus, which brings in the fixed energy of earth and earth matters.
Mars our planet of assertion and energy is conjunct Neptune our planet of no boundaries in Pisces. Jupiter our planet of expansion and luck, is in an out of sign conjunction with both Neptune and Mars in Aries. They are all trining the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio. This is helpful energy for the necessary clearing that needs to happen.
Retrograde Pluto in Capricorn is also making a helpful aspect to both the Sun and Moon in Taurus. This tells us that what leaves our lives at this time is not only necessary and timely but ultimately beneficial.
The presence of Saturn, our planet of boundaries and rules , in Aquarius is urging us through its tough angle to the Sun and Moon in Taurus and Scorpio respectively, to take our time and have faith in what may be being stripped away. The famous Star Trek words remind me of Saturn's energy “ resistance is futile”.
HOW WILL THE ECLIPSE AFFECT THE PLANET ?
Eclipses remove light. This is a lengthy eclipse of approximately 90 minutes. We may feel collectively, a nervousness about news that comes to light. An uncertainty about what direction world events are likely to take. Public figures may experience significant change. Scorpio is the sign of death and rebirth. We may lose dearly loved public figures. Or certainly see significant power shifts for leaders. Some may not survive this exacting energy.
HOW WILL THE ECLIPSE AFFECT US PERSONALLY
If you have personal planets like your natal Sun, Moon or ascendant close to the degree of the eclipse in either Taurus or Scorpio, then you may literally feel eclipsed in some way on the day. Feelings of loss or general feelings of inadequacy may arise . However the best use of this energy is to go within and be brutally truthful with yourself about who you are. Also about what needs to receive closure be it a relationship, friendship or job even a destructive habit.
For the rest of us we may not experience this eclipse in such a powerful way, but be aware of diluted feelings on the themes I’ve mentioned. Scorpio full moons can be the most powerful. Because of the depths of feeling. An eclipse like this just exaggerates this energy.
Do not be surprised if shocking secrets get revealed around this energy. For self protection, honour your truth don’t allow yourself to get involved in shady dealings or bad karmic decisions. Stay in touch with the light that is hidden. Hold fast to truth. The economy may be suffering exponentially around this eclipse. Don’t get caught in fear and remember that what goes down must also go up.
