May 10, 2017 (Julian 130) Full Moon in Scorpio + Mercury / Uranus conjunct in Aries
Many others have noted that this is an “interesting” Full Moon. Moon in Scorpio opposite Sun in Taurus is always a time of addressing compelling issues each year, but some years more than others. This FM is at twenty degrees, so it is not precisely on the point where the Cross Quarter Days are located (at 15 degrees).
However, Mercury, direct after a recent retrograde period, touches the twenty degree point at this time where is become conjunct with Uranus in Aries. This conjunction occurs on the same day as the FM, but about sixteen hours earlier. Worthy of note is the fact that this is the third time Mercury has joined Uranus at (or “near”) this point, a bit of an exclamation point. Uranus is also considered to be the “higher octave” of Mercury. This combination of Mercury / Uranus is precisely semi-sextile the Sun in Taurus and quincunx the Moon in Scorpio.
Outers are “interesting” also. Jupiter quintiles Vesta, and some of us have some bright ideas regarding our rituals and traditions. Mars binquintiles Pluto, adding a dash of brilliance or perhaps genius involving power struggles and things Scorpionic: investigations, chemistry, toxicology or poisons, police, intelligence agencies (including the FBI, in the news spotlight again we note), and sometimes criminals. Actually, ALL “martians” benefit at this time, meaning people who are soldiers, whether literal or metaphorical, become stronger and smarter at this time.
Jupiter opposes Pallas (the maiden warrior goddess), and this further amplifies everything mentioned in the previous paragraph. Criminologists may have important breakthroughs at this time. Ditto for cryptography experts.
Pallas perfects a sesquiquadrate to the North Node, and a sense of urgency simply will not let any aforementioned “martians” rest. They feel they MUST act at this time. Do not be surprised if an even more explosive scandal bursts onto the politicial scene at this time.
Privately, for “the rest of us,” this is one hell of a day to “get things done.” Seize the moment and seize the day. But, keep in mind that this is not a day to be frivolous or “stupid.” That just will not be tolerated. Keeping that in mind, chances are good that you can have breakthroughs that are nothing short of amazing at this time. All signs benefit: earth and water benefit from the FM and fire and air benefit from Mercury conjunct Uranus.
