If you’re seeing red this spring, it could be the bright blooms of Kenzo’s limited-edition Poppy capsule collection. But near midnight on May 15/16, you will likely be witnessing the Total Scorpio Full Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse, putting on its own runway show in the sky.
Most years bring us two lunar eclipses (and two solar eclipses), but we haven’t had one arrive in the sign of Scorpio since April 25, 2013. Scroll wayyyy back on your timeline and see what was happening then. Themes could recur, bringing Scorpio’s signature sexiness, intensity, and alchemy in their wake. Mercury will also be retrograde during this eclipse (from May 10 to June 3, to be exact), which provides another reason to prepare for the future by remembering lessons from the past.
Center yourself! Eclipses are notorious for exposing what’s hidden in the shadows, and doubly so when Detective Scorpio is involved. Nefarious details may come to light, like hidden agendas and even scandalous activity. Picking up the pieces could take a minute, but with Scorpio’s “phoenix rising from the ashes” vibes, the best course of action is to tackle any destruction head on, and rebuild better than before.
Every zodiac sign will get its own set of special directions from this eclipse. Here’s what you need to know:
Ready to go the distance in a partnership? For Rams, this eclipse is about merging on all levels, be it marriage, divorce, pregnancy, or joint ventures. You may be propelled into more permanent terrain in some duos, while shaky relationships will be swept away. The good news? This eclipse could be clearing a path (albeit abruptly) for serious contenders to move in.
Relationships get an extreme makeover when the eclipse sweeps through your seventh house of partnerships. Some Bulls might dramatically exit a duo or—conversely—leap into a serious relationship. You may part ways with a longtime work collaborator or ink a major business deal. Do you give too much and end up in codependent or draining dynamics? Renegotiate your terms and move into greater levels of mutuality.
Have you ignored red flags telling you to reduce stress and prioritize self-care? You could make a lifestyle change or begin treating a nagging ache or chronic condition. Consider it a wake-up call, reminding you that the body is the soul’s earthly address, and you need to maintain your “property.” Good help may be shockingly easy to find!
Not to give shy Cancers anxiety, but your star turn could come as this eclipse ignites your fifth house of passion and self-expression. Shuck off any stage fright and claim the spotlight. These eclipses may bring a surprise start (or end) of a love affair and, in some cases, an unplanned pregnancy. Charged up with Scorpio-level seduction—romantic developments will be intense, passionate, and unforgettable. Make them so!
Give your living sitch a once-over as this eclipse transforms your home sector. This one could bring resolution to an ongoing domestic matter. Where you live or who you live with might suddenly shift, or you may clarify plans around starting or expanding your familia. Dietary changes may be necessary to support health, fertility, or ease symptoms around your period or perimenopause.
This eclipse touches your zone of local activity, communication, and kindred spirits, bringing powerful conversations that could turn the tides. Writing, teaching, social media, and marketing—the eclipses energize all the outlets you can use to spread a message. Just be warned: tough talks may be necessary, especially if you’ve been feeling power imbalances or jealousy with a peer, such as a sibling, co-worker, or friend.
If money talks, this eclipse puts the truth on the table. If you’ve been unhappily employed, a job change is possible. Or you could have an eye-opening realization that you need to budget, spend, and save very differently. Maybe you’ve become imprisoned by all your “stuff” and you want to downsize. Perhaps your company restructures and eliminates your department or moves everyone into new roles. Remain flexible—and have faith. You can rest assured that a much better fit will soon be on its way.
The spotlight is directly on your individual needs and endeavors. In the month that follows, you could surprise the world with anything from a revamped personal style to an assertive new attitude. (Although you might want to wait to pull the trigger on any extreme makeovers until Mercury turns direct on June 3.) Whether you plan for it or not, this eclipse could turn into a ribbon-cutting for a long-held dream. You’ve worked hard for this goal, so what the heck. Might as well let this lunation stage a dramatic “reveal ceremony” on your behalf!
Lessons in surrender arrive as the eclipse energizes your twelfth house of rest, forgiveness, and release. This is a fruitful time for deep therapy and inner work that taps into your subconscious to help you break chronic, fear-based patterns. For artists and healers, these Scorpio eclipses may inspire a creative renaissance. You may be forced to wave the white flag on an issue you’ve been struggling with. Feeling is the first step in dealing, Sagittarius, and there’s no hiding behind humor. Fortunately, this lunar eclipse can illuminate incredible healers who adjust everything from your neural pathways to your posture.
Get ready for a crew review! Your friendships could go through a round of changes, especially if you’ve been feeling uninspired. You might join a cutting-edge collaboration or be invited to join a prestigious organization that shares your values. With your tech sector tapped by these moonbeams, you could become a viral sensation. Explore technology that helps you share your heartfelt message with a global audience: video, podcasting, live webinars, etc. Digital dating brings interesting prospects for single Caps!
Prep your professional pages and drop your power suits at the dry cleaner. You could be catapulted into a prominent role that involves leadership or public recognition. Or, you might make a dramatic career change. A job shift could arise from changes outside your control, such as a corporate restructuring or buyout. If you’re craving more creativity from your career, this eclipse helps you design a fulfilling new role, possibly within your existing company. The tenth house also rules men and fathers, and these eclipses spotlight your relationship with an important guy in your life.
Travel opportunities could crop up out of the blue. Be ready to leap if they do! Maybe this ties to a business opportunity or spiritual pilgrimage. Entrepreneurial Pisces may get a surprise round of funding or press attention. Either way, you’re set to expand. Prepare for an eye-opening moment of truth, Pisces, especially if you’ve been holding yourself back to please other people. No more! These liberating lunations demand independence. Take a stand for your dreams and let others follow suit if they don’t want to lose you. You are worth fighting for!
