Full Moon May 21, 2016: Polar Opposites!

May 21, 2016: Full Moon in Sagittarius

The full moon on Saturday May 21, 2016 falls on 1 Sagittarius. Overall, this full moon can increase flashes of imagination and confidence in the natural flow of life. Sagittarius is the most philosophical of all signs; candor and honesty are enhanced when a full moon is in this placement. This is the perfect opportunity to get "things off your chest" and deal with situations of higher education, publishing, and the law. Sagittarius is all about action so now is also a great time for adventure and sports.

The full moon on May 21, 2016 carries with it an intense Mars theme of aggression and relationship tensions. The Moon/Mars opposite the Sun/Venus aspect is an irritating and unstable polarity which requires some patience and understanding to work through.

What is a Full Moon?

Like all full moons, the major planetary aspect to focus on is the Sun opposite the Moon. Along with the conjunction, this aspect is the most important in astrology. A full moon focuses your attention on relationships of all kinds; A full moon itself has a relationship to the previous new moon. Projects you've started since the New Moon on May 6, 2016 can now be fined-tuned or completed; it's harvest time!

With the lunar qualities of emotions and instincts reaching their peak at a full moon, you can now step back and take an objective and balanced look at your personal relationships. Being in touch with your own needs and intentions, and those of others, helps you to clearly see any relationship imbalance causing disharmony. The influence of a full moon lasts for up to two weeks till the next new moon, in this case the New Moon on June 4th, 2016.

Polar Opposites: To Love or To Fight; That is the Question.

This full moon could be potentially nerve-wrecking and overwhelming for some of us. Fortunately, there's always a way to make the most of these "real" aspects (as I call them). Life is all about working hard for what you really want and desire, and this full moon proves to be no exception. Below, I've listed the challenges associated with this full moon and the best ways to take advantage of these potentially life-changing aspects.

1.Moon Conjunct Mars - This is the strongest feature in the chart shown above. This is a very intense conjunction because the Moon and Mars are both on the same degree. There are positives with this conjunction; passion, strength, bravery and sex appeal to name a few. However, the opposition to the Sun and Venus suggests that this full moon might result in more "fighting" than loving.Overall, make it a policy to think before you speak and act, especially with those closest to you. Try to cultivate patience and tolerance, and emphasize logic rather than pure emotion.

2.Sun Opposing Moon - This aspect can be unsettling because of the male/female polarity. The Moon is submissive and passive, while the Sun's energy is dominant and energetic; this in turn makes it difficult to find the emotional satisfaction you desire. During this time, you may find it difficult to emotionally connect with others unless you feel totally secure, which can be a challenge with this aspect. The trick here is to develop your self-esteem and learn to treat yourself with TLC. Everyone is human; no one is perfect, including you, so go easy on yourself. If relationships are proving to be nerve-wrecking right now go ahead and focus on your personal needs instead, the Universe is giving you the right away with this aspect.

3.Venus Opposite Mars - This one can put a lot of strain on relationships and adds sexual tension between partners. The polarity between your inner male energy and inner female energy will be highlighted; traditional sexual stereotypes are nowhere to be found with this aspect. Because of this, questioning of your relationships and the roles and responsibilities of each partner are likely to arise through the internal conflict that is mirrored in your personal life. Good news is this aspect can add an incredible amount of passion and determination to your personality. If relationships are causing you some distress then try channeling this aspect's energy into constructive money-making activities. Of course, thinking before you speak and act will also be highly life-saving as this time.

4.Mars Retrograde - Mars, the planet of energy and action, is currently in retrograde and this reinforces the need to, again, think twice before being assertive or acting impulsively. It is best to keep busy by doing hard work you love, and avoid arguments and conflict at all costs. You should be able to talk about what irritates you with your good partner and friends right now. Word of advice: be extra cautious with sharing your feeling with everyone else. Some people won't be handling this crazy energy too well and may be short-tempered and aggressive. Mars is instead telling you to keep to your course during this intense time.

Another ray of hope comes from the grand trine of Mercury, Jupiter and Pluto. This is the main theme from Mercury direct the day after Full Moon May 2016. This beautiful aspect will bring people together to build a better future based on optimism and faith. The May 6 New Moon suggested there would be some limiting situation you had to overcome that would lead to personal, professional or spiritual growth. If you put in the hard work, congratulations, this will be a time of fruition and harvesting your much deserved rewards!

Re: Full Moon May 21, 2016: Polar Opposites!

I am somewhat nervous about this full moon. This is my daughter's Solar Return. Her Bday is May 21st. She has the Sun @ 1 Gemini and her Asc is 3 Sag. Luckily, her Moon is @ 3 Aquarius so she has a nice release point for that Sun/Asc opposition.

I am throwing her a Birthday party this Saturday. I will have to show her these transits beforehand. She and her friends will be drinking and partying that day. I hope she and her boyfriend don't get in a big fight. LOL
