Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio, May 2022

Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio: Cradled by Spiritual Action

The Lunar Eclipse of May 2022 features the Moon conjunct the South Node. This means it’s a releasing eclipse: it’s all about releasing and letting go of old karma. 

This is a highly dramatic Moon with every potential of conflict, argument and power and control games. If not for the help and support of Pluto, Mars and Neptune, this one could be a train wreck. Full Moons (and especially those in Scorpio) are known for making big emotional waves, but with supportive sextiles and trines from Pluto in Capricorn (integrity and truth), as well as Mars and Neptune in Pisces (action guided by spirituality, faith, and compassion), we are offered many possible paths to finding smooth (possibly sexy) catharsis for this energy.

During this eclipse we can release an old addiction to tumult and intensity in favor of grounding, stabilizing, and creating peace and continuity. Find out the best ways to achieve gentle catharsis in our video. If you have a planet in your chart placed between 20º and 29º of a Fixed sign, you’ll feel this Moon. You’ll also feel it if you have anything in 0º of a Mutable sign.

Does It Affect You Personally?

February 8 to 18

May 10 to 21
August 12 to 23
November 12 to 22

Remember: not every eclipse touches everyone, but when it does, it’s usually noticeable. This means that a solar eclipse is likely to to be marked by an external, real-world event. Meanwhile, lunar eclipses are likely to bring up strong emotions and experienced as a subjective event. You may notice events happening anytime within the week surrounding the eclipse (up to a few days before or after).
