Total Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio (25 degrees) 15/16 May 2022
The total lunar eclipse in Scorpio will be exact on May 15th at 9:13 PM Pacific Time and 4:13 AM Universal time on May 16th.
This eclipse will be primarily visible in the Eastern US, Canada, and South America. However, apart from these locations this lunar eclipse will still be visible in some parts of Western Africa, the western United States, and South America.
A lunar eclipse is a very powerful full moon, and an important factor that transforms a full moon into a lunar eclipse are the nodes; the Moon doesn’t have to be exactly conjunct with the nodes for it to be eclipsed; however, it has to be within a certain proximity.
A lunar eclipse often corresponds with significant and unexpected changes. Anything that happens during an eclipse would have occurred sooner or later—eclipses simply accelerate the timeline. Any endings (professional, romantic, emotional or domestic) that arise during the eclipse season help clear space for exciting new opportunities and new beginnings.
Scorpio is a fixed sign, and an eclipse in a fixed sign suggests long term, enduring or finalising results. Also, total eclipses are more powerful than the annual or partial eclipses. Water eclipses influence water, seas and rivers, but they are also related to women, children, emotions, psychological and spiritual matters, oil, water, chemistry, sewage, recycling, hospitals, loans, and sea life. There might be financial and economic changes of significant proportion and long-lasting effects with the Scorpio and Taurus axis activation.
A South Node Lunar Eclipse can generally seem more negative in effect, depending on the perspective and the circumstances, forcing us to let go of something (can be positive in the end).
The Total Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio on May 15/16 will form a square to Saturn in Aquarius. At the same time Venus will conjunct Chiron, and Mars will apply to conjunct Neptune, but this alignment won’t be exact until May 18th. With so much tension in the sky, the theme of this period may take on a serious tone during these days. Hopes, ideas and expectations must now be altered to the given circumstances. The conjunction of Mars and Neptune in Pisces on May 18th indicates a temporary lack of clarity and confusion. The rising prices of gas and food and the overall increase in the cost of living will likely be the deepest concerns around this time. Those with the Sun or other critical placements in 23º–27º of the fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius) will be most influenced by this eclipse.
