May’s Full Moon: Mastery of the Soul & Self
A Full Moon represents a time of completion, while a Lunar Eclipse brings hidden emotions, feelings, desires, and unconscious forces to light. As this is the second Eclipse in the Taurus-Scorpio axis, there are some potent themes lighting up your world and subconscious mind. Getting lost in addictions, distractions, or repetitive “3D” cycles would possibly be the worst way to go! Now is the time to elevate and vibrate higher…
Qualities of Scorpio to meditate or reflect on:-
- Determined, ambitious, resourceful, and hard-working!
- Passionate, soulful, instinctive, and psychically-inclined.
- Highly intuitive…
- Loyal, intimacy loving, compassionate, kind, and generous.
- Courageous and high-achieving!
- “Shadow traits” to watch out for: jealous, resentful, vengeful, secretive, and possessive.

Casting your own magic spells takes skill and patience and isn’t recommended in most cases. I provide these “do it yourself” articles for educational purposes, but it is strongly recommended that you consult an experienced spell caster such as myself and allow me to do the work for you. This way you know it’s being done by someone experienced and knowledgeable and I’m also always here to answer questions about your casting and provide follow-up at no additional charge.
As you’ll see, I offer castings for just about any purpose in both white magic and safe black magic options as well as the new moon and full moon enhanced castings. The new and full moon spells are a great way to boost the power of your spell as each moon-enhanced casting uses special items and materials that are known to work very well during these moon phases to strengthen your casting and may even lessen the manifestation time as well!
Moon enhanced castings also are completely separate from your base casting so it’s a second casting that will also boost the original casting, providing even stronger results.

Self-Mastery, Soul Alignment, & Spirit Connection
A Full Moon in Scorpio calls for self-mastery and spiritual illumination. Pluto is Scorpio’s ruling planet, and Scorpio represents rebirth, transformation, and intensity. Pluto may be small, but has extraordinary power to create shifts, transformation, alchemical change, and positive events and opportunities in your life. It is a highly emotional time, but emotion doesn’t have to be seen as a bad thing. This Full Moon enhances emotional intelligence and wisdom, intuition, and spiritual maturity, which leads to increased emotional balance within and around.
It’s a time of high vibrations and open portals to higher consciousness, so make sure you turn towards spirituality and things like the Healing Arts, Tarot, Divination, Metaphysical teachings & wisdom, Shamanic teachings and lineages, and working with crystals, your spirit animals, and other direct links to the divine.
Work on your Heart, Throat, Third Eye, and Crown chakras. These are your “upper” chakras, or higher chakras, and Scorpio being such a spiritual and intuitive sign means they are naturally in tune with these, even if they don’t consciously know it like when younger. Any sort of spiritual awakening or enlightening experience brings hidden knowledge of the self out of them though, and this means that you too can be awakened or soulfully sparked by the most simplest of things.
This is solely a good thing! Again, there is nothing strange, weird, or woo about seeing from a higher perspective. Being connected to spirit and the less obvious or superficial of frequencies gives you an edge, which can help you in business, relationships, and succeeding in life.
Pay attention to your dreams if you need some extra guidance. Inspiration and profound insights can come from your subconscious mind in dream time, and many water signs actually keep dream journals or dream diaries. A dream journal or diary serves as a constant and significant link to your higher self, as it is in dream time where we are shown information and revelations regarding our higher selves. Unless you want to live in ignorance, ego, or separation. Disconnected from your “all-seeing eye” and the powers and divine abilities that come with awakened higher chakras, for example; one can argue it is paramount to work closely with your dreams.
This Solar Eclipse highlights the notion that ignorance is not bliss.
Furthermore, Scorpio is in fact the star sign symbolizing the seer, shaman, and shapeshifter. Oh yes, many Scorpios and people with strong Scorpio in their charts can shapeshift, meaning they alternate between dimensions and realities. They may lucid dream or astral project at will and with ease; they could be closely connected to a spirit animal, like an Eagle, Owl, or Snake (typical shamanic power animals and Scorpio spirit animals), and become them in the dream space, or through transcendental meditation.
As these energies arise to the surface over the Scorpio Full Moon period, you may begin to have memories of “magical” dreams, potent visions, vivid astral experiences, or unexplainable phenomena that you once classed as insignificant. Now you will start to see the deeper meaning in them if you wish…Nurture your soul gifts- the abilities society often classifies as odd or irrational, as highly improbable even when countless people experience them.
How this Full Moon is affecting you personally:-
Fire signs (Aries, Leo & Sagittarius)
Tune into your spiritual and psychic gifts now so you don’t become too lost in the world of materialism or superificality. It can be easy to get distracted and even lost in the 3D world if you don’t actively and consciously redirect your focus, channel your energies & passions, and engage in higher dimensional activities. Positively, this is a great time for visionary, creative, and artistic pursuits. If you´re an artist, musician, speaker, teacher, workshop leader or event coach, or professional of any kind, there are multiple opportunities for expansion.
Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo & Capricorn)
Open your third eye, your psychic channel that allows for self.awareness, spiritual perception, significant intuition, and extraordinary and extrasensory insights! It’s important that you connect to the spiritual aspects of self and life, and not get lost in the small details or insignificant worries or stresses of society. If you have free time, go on a holistic, therapeutic, spiritual retreat- this will work wonders for you! Don’t just go on a mini break, actually book yourself into a spa, meditation or yoga program, or quiet and zen nature spot where you know you won’t be distracted. Destressing and regaining inner peace will help with all matters of money and abundance.
Air signs (Gemini, Libra & Aquarius)
Time to get your spiritual hat on! You´re known for your intellect, knowledge, communication skills, logical and intuitive thinking, brilliant mind, and ability to use your brain for the most difficult and complex of tasks. But connecting to the spiritual, ethereal, and astral realms is another thing. You can find amazing magic, synchronicity, and multidimensionality in the subtle and astral realms, and aligning with your shamanic and ancestral roots will assist you intellectually and financially or materially. Don’t mistake spirit and spirituality as something “woo” or mystical… Some of the most spiritual people have the most evolved souls, and the most balanced and advanced perspectives.
Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio & Pisces)
Now is the perfect time to get in tune with your instinctive, psychic, and spiritual talents and gifts. As a water sign, you are the most sensitive to external and subtle clues and environmental triggers from the outside world, but also from the inside world. You are connected to the world of feelings, emotions, subtle energies, and psychic and intuitive phenomena; you possess a direct link to the subconscious mind and ethereal qualities, which act as a cord to angelic, divine, and multi-dimensional consciousness and insights. Scorpio brings out your most mysterious, intense, and spiritually illuminated side. Make the most of it!
Sexual Intimacy and Relationship Desires
Loyal, committed, companionable and kind of intense; Scorpio is one of the best lovers of the Zodiac! This sensual and seductive water sign is both deeply connected to the realm of emotions, feelings, and instincts- and to their personal power, charm, and charisma. This makes for extra sexy energy of passion, romance, wildness, devotion, and a genuine desire to give and receive love.
Your Root and Sacral chakras will be feeling the cosmic currents during this Full Moon, which means you could be receiving a lot more memories of experiences relating to both past sexual encounters, and how secure and safe you felt within your romantic relationships (or not!).
This is a time of healing and lasting transformation in your love life. Regardless of whether you´re with a partner, you could find only wanting to attract meaningful and loyal partnerships into your life. Anything superficial, promiscuous, or without depth just won´t cut it! You need intimacy, soul union, sizzling attraction & chemistry, and a love bond that transcends space and time… Even in platonic connections you´re feeling the craving of deeper union and companionship.
As for romantic and sexual bonds, sweetness and nurturance meet wildness- a totally liberated expression of your sexual, sensual, and spiritual self. So make sure you have some healthy outlets to channel this high energy into, otherwise, you could find yourself either resorting to toxicity, the toxic and shadow traits once embodied in youth, or becoming out of alignment, bored, and lacking motivation in your life.
Because of Scorpio´s intensity and well-developed personal power (Pluto’s influence), there is a big opportunity for some evolutionary themes and changes. You may steer towards tantra more, such as tantric intimacy, soul union, and practices you can develop on your own (or with a partner). Karmic cycles of wound projection, trauma, reaction/trigger responses, and toxic traits in relationships can also be transcended; you’re more focused on your Higher Self at this time, and how you can integrate its qualities and positive characteristics.
Reflect on past relationships and your previous attitudes towards love and sex. Then, take conscious steps to change and move forward into a more beautiful, loving, wise, discerning, and “karma-free” you.
One small thing to note… the shadow element of this lunar cycle is trying to gain power and control over others. You can use your charm, charisma, or sexuality to manipulate, dominate, or suppress others. But this would be back-tracking, to say the least, and not making use of the potent catalytic energies available for transformation.
Scorpio is majorly skilled in the art of seduction and, when at their lowest, manipulation; watch out for this behavior in others too! Stay intuitive and self-boundaries, without losing your desire for deeper intimacy and connection.
Merging Soul with the Material World
Scorpio is one of the few signs who have got the ´spiritual-material´ world and plane balance perfected. They are both high vibrational beings, seeing and perceiving (and experiencing) reality from a higher, multi-dimensional, third eye open, and seer-like spiritual perspective; and very into the material comforts and necessities of life, including security and material abundance.
The actual glyph of this sign is the Scorpion who is both a creature of the land and seas, depending on the species. This implies that you can now access the mystical and powerful qualities of water while remaining grounded and connected to your earthly path.
Water is symbolic of the soul, the depths of the subconscious mind and ethers too. Feeling in tune and touch with the water element can aid in soul evolution and soul completion- finalizing any steps or chapters left on your path. Lessons, wisdom, teachings, etc. – anything needing to be integrated fully and for the final time can be realized and achieved. A sensitive and insightful nature allows you to discover the unseen, dismissed, hidden, overlooked, and spiritual parts of yourself, parts society often deems as “unnecessary” when in reality are totally essential to balance, whole, and authentic living! On the other hand, the earth is a grounding, stabilizing and ancient wisdom and memory bringing force in our lives.
Taking time to ground yourself can give you the extra dose of practical wisdom and power needed for success in the material world, which further enhances finances, opportunities, blessings, and monetary flow.
Work on your soulful ambitions, the projects and ventures that may serve a higher purpose, for example, something that contributes to your legacy after death. Scorpio is a highly prestigious and naturally successful sign.
Many Scorpios go on to achieve great wealth and social recognition, while simultaneously embarking on worthwhile projects and pathways that increase their innate compassion, altruism, and charity.
Spirituality & the Healing Arts
Finally, this is an ideal time to consult a metaphysicist, shaman, elder, Reiki Master, tantra expert, tarot reader, psychic, or spiritual counselor. Anything that is considered holistic, part of a conscious and loving occult, esoteric or divinatory works wonders for your psyche and higher self at this time. Not only is Scorpio one of the most spiritual signs, but this Full Moon is also coupled with a Lunar Eclipse… this is a greenlight to get deep with your emotions, and your sense of emotional intelligence, instincts, and wisdom.
If you have leveled up and outgrown certain people or situations; embrace it.
Stand up straight and strong in your truth and self-sovereignty, sophistication, and emotional mastery. If you still need healing, use the helpful assistance of this loving Lunar Eclipse to align yourself with the better version of self, the one you hope to take into the future, and leave behind the rest.
This is also an excellent time for forgiveness, healing, and mastery in other areas of life. Become an alchemist by learning from Scorpio´s shadow. Instead of holding a lifelong grudge, being resentful for eternity, or seeking vengeance through unforgiveness, look towards the light- universal compassion, unconditional love, faith and hope (in yourself and others), and the magical art of forgiveness. A healer, therapist, or channel for the divine can help with this if you feel you can’t do it alone.
