Is this a good or a bad sign? May 2012 Full Moon occurs on May 5th, just one day before Greeks will rush to cast a vote and elect a new government. This full moon occurs at the sign of Scorpio and near Libra. Scorpio has the reputation of some self-destructive features. So? Will Greeks get a government of their choice or not?
Cafeastrology in its this week forecast writes that this week falls positive for electing new initiatives, and is considered favorable for new beginnings.:
The Moon is waxing this week — a period that is generally considered favorable for new beginnings, with some exceptions. (See Best Time to Start a Business for more details
When the Moon is in Libra
Creating order is the focus, not necessarily through tidying or organizing as was the case while the Moon was in Virgo, but rather through pleasing interactions with others and aesthetics in our environment. We tend to solve problems through diplomacy, and we are more able to put aside our own emotions in order to achieve the peace we crave. The tendency now is to avoid direct confrontations. Decisions do not come easily. Seeing both sides to any given situation is the main reason for hesitation. Fear of losing others’ approval is another.
The Moon in Libra generally favors the following activities: Relationship and partnership issues, activities involving teamwork and cooperation, activities that involve self-examination, activities related to beauty.
When the Moon is in Scorpio
Intensity is what the Moon in Scorpio is all about. Whether it’s passion, elation, sorrow, or desire, emotions are felt on a deeply personal level. We are motivated by the desire to get to the bottom of things, and we instinctively read between the lines. Superficiality won’t work for us now. The Moon in Scorpio urges us to uncover our own power, and it’s an excellent time to rid ourselves of old fears and limiting habits. It can be an intimate and passionate time. Avoid manipulative tactics, brooding, and suspiciousness.
The Moon in Scorpio generally favors the following activities: Taxes, accounting, intimacy issues, psychological examinations, research, self-examination, getting rid of old things.
As if the percentage of undecided voters (32%) according to some Greek opinion polls is known also to astrologists, Elsa Elsa analyzes the several planetary factors and influences and notes:
“The full Moon makes it easier to see things or people for what and who they are.
With Jupiter involved, your vision will be expanded and opportunity is implied.
There are endless ways to use this energy. An angle that appeals to me is that you might consider the deep (Scorpio) roots (Moon) of your ego (Sun) and self-esteem (Taurus). If you lack self-esteem, this would be an excellent time to gain insight into the problem. If you have a healthy ego, there is a chance here to see the root of that as well.
Thanks to Jupiter’s involvement, energy exchange of all kinds should prove beneficial in some way. This includes classic power struggles but you must be willing to see your own shadow.”
“May 5th is a date to keep in mind” Else writes. Greeks will more likely keep May 6th in mind though…
If you still think astrology forecasts are crap, just enjoy the Largest Full Moon of 2012 and a rain of Eta Aquarid meteors :)
