May 14th 2014 Full Moon in Scorpio
A full moon occurs at 3:16PM ET at 23 degrees 54 minutes of Scorpio. In Scorpio, we’re intense, perhaps too much so. We take everything as seriously as the grave, no matter what it is. We need to take it down a notch, but we have a hard time calming down. We sway from one extreme to the next, and passions run high. We have to check ourselves and make sure we’re not blowing anything up out of proportion. We dwell on the seriousness of life, and the dark side. We just need to be careful, or we’ll get stuck there. We feel everything much deeper than usual, and we see the need for change. We could see a phoenix rising from the ashes, someone coming back from something we don’t see coming, or an important death, literal or figurative. If you're a Scorpio Sun, Moon, or late Scorpio rising, you may feel the effects of this moon most.
May 28th 2014 New Moon in Gemini
A new moon occurs at 2:40PM ET at 7 degrees 21 minutes of Gemini. In Gemini, our minds are active, and we need mental stimulation constantly. We want to be around people so we can engage, have a good time, share, laugh, and enjoy ourselves. We’re more social, we want to be busy, and we can be a little scattered if we’re not careful, making commitments we don’t keep. We’re more logical and analytical, and we can see the details quite easily. We could hear some important news regarding young people, education, communities, or electronics. This new moon is sextile (positive aspect) transit (moving) Mars in Libra, and our energy is good and we feel enthusiastic. This new moon is also square (hard aspect) transit Neptune in Pisces, and we have a hard time connecting emotionally, being compassionate, or getting in touch with our imaginative side. If you're a Gemini Sun, Moon, or rising, you may feels the effects of this moon most.
