The Full Moon Penumbral Eclipse in Scorpio at 14°58' on May 5th at 10:33 am pdt conjures up a polarity within us that questions what we think we want vs what we really need. Everyone will experience the eclipse differently based on where the Sun and Moon falls in their chart. To know where the eclipse will be, you will have to know what your rising sign is. If you use the placidus house system it is important to know the degrees of the houses so that you can best calculate how the eclipse will show up in your life. You are looking for 14°53 minutes Scorpio in your charts, this will tell you where the Moon will be illuminated in the chart.
In general, the Taurus / Scorpio axis has been activated for all of us since January 18th, 2022. This will be the last eclipse where the nodal axis is in Taurus and Scorpio. The October eclipse on the 28th will be a partial lunar eclipse in Taurus at 5° but by then the nodal axis will have shifted into Libra/ Aries so this is the last official eclipse cycle in the fixed earth and water signs.
This is a big time for renewal and healing. The main theme for the second decal of Scorpio is the past, so many past situations will come up for you to work through emotionally, mentally and physically. For each person, what this situation is will be different but it will bring up parts of yourself that you thought you had been done and over with. The Sun conjunct Uranus is opening us up to reinvent who we are around this situation from the past, to let go of old identities and make ourselves a new.
