Welcome to your astrology forecast for the week of May 4-10, beautiful souls!

Goodbye, last week and hello Full Moon! One of the big events this week is a Full Moon in the sultry Water sign of Scorpio on Thursday. You’ll start to see it’s effects on Tuesday and they will last through Saturday. Notice how people are willing to have deep conversations and bring up painful memories from the past more willingly. The fun part of this lunation is that many people will find romance sparks or turns into a full-blown blazing fire (in a good way) as we are seeking intimacy.

A word of caution here is not to seek comfort in the wrong places where you will have to dig your way out or that could have stronger negative impacts than you’re willing to admit when you want instant gratification. There’s a bit of mentally stimulating energy that could make us channel this energy into studying esoteric or hidden information so enjoy your inner-detective and use it productively.

Another big event at the end of the week is Saturn, the planet of time and lessons, moving retrograde in the Air sign of Aquarius.

Collectively, we will likely see more action in the courts and people being held accountable for prioritizing self-gain over humanitarian justice. On a personal level, you’re likely to feel compelled to order your life goals around things that pull on your heartstrings and less concerned about how it fills your pockets.

While we don’t have planets changing signs, the aspects are positive this week. You’ll find they support you in love and work. The week is full of energy that will help you feel clarity on what you want and how to get there with the added boost of the resources that show up with the culminating Full Moon energy. A big takeaway for this week’s astrology forecast is that Scorpio can be about transformation and for a Full Moon, that could mean we let old ideas that don’t fit our lives die so new growth can come alive.
