May’s Full Moon takes place on 19 May in Scorpio.
Astrologer, Yasmin Boland says we get the Full Moon which occurs when the Sun and Moon are on opposite sides of the zodiac. Since the Sun is in Taurus for most of this month, it’s when the speedy Moon zips around to Taurus’ opposite sign of Scorpio that we will get the Full Moon.

Where the Full Moon for you:
This Full Moon is all about finding a balance between what you give in life and what you take. If you know you’ve been doing too much of either, it’s most certainly time to redress the balance. The problem is that when we give too much but we don’t know how to take, we actually mess with the natural laws which govern free flow. How can the Universe send you an abundant stream of good things if you’re not receiving them without a fight? Now is a very good time to attend to practical financial matters, like paying off debts and settling personal bills. Also very good for investing some emotion in the boudoir. Read more.
This Full Moon suggests it’s time for you to step aside a little. It’s time to invest some emotional energy either into your Other Half or into Other People in general; your marriage partner, significant other, business partner, or even an adversary. Me, me, me is fine at the right time, but right now, it should be all about someone else. At the very least there needs to be a balance – it seems someone else needs your attention! The Full Moon can also bring closures so if you’re in a friendship or relationship which is ending now, you can proceed knowing that you’re finishing things up at the exact right time, celestially-speaking.

If you’re one of the lucky ones, this is the Full Moon when you see yourself for who you REALLY are and therefore see your good points as well as your flaws – and you decide to do something about your flaws. This is all about the daily life you lead. Are you living in a healthy fashion? Are you getting out and about to exercise? Have you long ago given up the bad habits like smoking and partying too much? If not, then this Full Moon is your annual chance to start again when it comes to taking care of yourself body, mind and spirit. Routines are your friend now. At work, go slow and steady. Read more.
There’s a whole lot of emotion going on in your chart now and therefore most probably your life! The Full Moon is taking place in your 5th House of Self-Expression. For some, it’s all about pouring your heart out – perhaps because you’re sad, perhaps just because you have a lot of emotions to download! For others, it’s about the joy that a child (your own or someone else’s) brings you. And for others, it’s about pouring emotion into a creative project you’re working on. And between all this, you need to find a balance between your Self and your friends. Don’t neglect them totally! This is your challenge for the coming month. Read more.
Working like a dog to achieve your personal goals sounds like a very good thing but there is a time and a place for everything. And right now, you’re entering a cycle when the planets (and the Sun and the Moon in particular) are suggesting that you need to find a balance between your outer aims and goals, and your inner needs. Perhaps your family needs you to spend more time with them. Or perhaps you just need some time with nothing on your mind. Take a look at your family relationships and ascertain if everything is running as smoothly as you’d like. If not, this is the time to pour some energy into that part of your life. Read more.
It’s all very well dreaming of the Great Escape where you and possibly a loved one or two decide to take off to see the world (or at least the nearby countryside). But what about the details? This Full Moon is reminding you that there is a lot of work to be done close to home, things to be taken care of, items on your To Do List to be ticked. It’s also a celestial remind that you seriously need to express yourself – if you haven’t been honest about how you feel, now is the time to start to say your piece, whether you’re talking, Facebook-ing, emailing, Tweeting or whatever. Dramas with siblings are highlighted and can be sorted now too. Read more.
There’s a balance that’s required and the Full Moon is reminding you about it – it’s between what you do for yourself financially and what you do for others. There’s your income to be considered and your debts. There’s your self-worth and what you think you’re worth and there’s what others are going to pay you, which is usually based on what you ask for, at least within reason. If you’re about to make a major purchase, then you’re doing it at the right time. If you’ve been letting someone control you because they have financial power over you, then this is your chance to break free. This Full Moon is also reminding you that you need to take care of your intimate life. Don’t neglect it because of worldly concerns! Read more.
It’s all very well and lovely to be focused on someone else. Certainly it sounds like a very valiant thing. But once a year around about now, the Full Moon lights up your chart to remind you that you also need to focus on yourself – and that time is now! Many of us are givers rather than takes and again, that sounds great, but it messes with the flow in our lives. This is your month to remember how to say YES when people offer to help you and to ask for help if you need it and you’re not getting it. You could feel extra emotional during this cycle but a lot of your ‘stuff’ which is coming up to be dealt with NEEDS to be dealt with so don’t run away from it! Read more.
Life has probably felt very busy recently and no one can blame you for wanting to take some time out. Now the Full Moon in your 12th House is going to allow you to do just that. For many people, the Full Moon in the 12th House comes at a time when they’re feeling a little bit down in the dumps but the fact is, you’re probably not down in the dumps per se, you’re probably just exhausted after the efforts of keeping up with the demands of daily life. Take some time out. If you know how to meditate or do yoga, go for it. You need to strike a balance between working and time out. Read more.
Of course, it’s as tempting for you as it is for everyone else to focus on yourself and your own pleasures. Perhaps you’re one of the Creative Types out there. Why shouldn’t you express yourself? Of course you should! Life is for living and having fun. However, this month’s Full Moon in your 11th House is reminding you that you need to find a balance between indulging yourself in a bit of what you fancy and remembering that the people in your life also need some attention. They need some attention from you. Whatever you do now for someone else, you get extra karmic Brownie points for. This also makes the coming month good for networking. Read more.
If you’ve been hiding yourself away and generally keeping a low profile, watch out! The skies are suggesting rather loudly that it’s time for you to step out of the shadows and back into the limelight. As tempting as it might be to slouch around at home, this Full Moon in your 10th House of Career is telling you it’s time to invest some emotional energy into your professional life. Even if your work has been the source of annoyance lately, don’t give up. For some, a work situation or project comes to an end now. Don’t panic. Remember, the Universe abhors a vacuum and something new will come in, in its place, soon enough. How committed are you to your goals? Read more.
Personal growth, religion, philosophy, publishing, religion, the Internet, travel and study – these are just some of the subjects looming large for you now as the Full Moon takes place in your 9th House. Be honest with yourself. Have you been fussing too much over the details of your latest problems or tasks? Sometimes, that’s just a delay tactic and we need to take a step back and to look at the big picture of where we are and where we want to be. Is your life and your mind expanding or narrowing? If you’ve stopped being adventurous, then you only have yourself to blame! This is a great time to try something which is out of your usual realm of the Everyday. Read more.
