Use you increased emotional strength and intuition to overcome any relationship challenges. You will clearly see any relationship dynamics or negative feelings causing disharmony.

A full moon has a relationship to the previous new moon. So your May 15 New Moon goals can now be fine-tuned or completed, it’s harvest time. You can make emotional adjustments in response to those new moon goals. The effects of the May 29 Full Moon lasts for two weeks up to the June 13 New Moon.

Full Moon May 2018 Astrology

At 08°10′ Sagittarius Sign, the May 29 full moon sits within range of the potent fixed star Antares (10°01′ Sagittarius) in the Heart of the Scorpion. This star acts like Mars and Jupiter so according to Elsbeth Ebertin makes people tough, belligerent and pugnacious. This is an important star for military personnel and is said to convey mental alertness, strategic ability and courage and to make daredevils. [1]

The Moon brings out the positive nature of Antares according to Vivian Robson: Popular, broad-minded, interested in philosophy, science and metaphysics, liable to change religious opinions, influential friends, favorable for business and domestic matters, active in local affairs, great power, honor and wealth but benefits may not prove lasting, danger of violence, sickness, drowning or assassination. [2]

The full moon activates the most striking polarity in the heaven. Opposite Antares by only 0°01′ is the equally potent fixed star Aldebaran (10°02′ Gemini) in the Eye of the Bull. So for full moon May 2018, the Moon is with Antares and the Sun with Aldebaran. Each star gives an incredible amount of energy and activity. They also cause great ups and down in life, but after a fall they do give the tenacity and dogged determination to recover and reach the top again. Both stars are red colored Mars-type stars and are therefore a sign of war. The activation of the star axis in the sky has important ramification for global politics. According to Dr. Eric Morse:

What does tend to show up when these two stars are both engaged on the horoscope is a conflict, either the starting date of the war, or the natal charts of the leaders, is that peace rarely ensues before the total and crushing defeat of one side or the other. And it is a war that escalates to huge proportions, even to a world scale. [3]


Full Moon Aspects

Full Moon sextile Mars gives a passionate enthusiasm to work and play. This competitive yet also a cooperative energy makes winning come easy. Success and popularity result from a warm attractiveness, which also make this time ideal for pursuing your stronger than usual desires for intimacy. Improving sexual relations with your partner, or finding a new playmate are real possibilities during this moon phase. Bravery comes naturally now, so you could satisfy an inner primal need by fighting for a worthy cause, or for your family or clan.

Full Moon semisextile Saturn creates a difficult balancing act between ego gratification and heavy feelings of responsibility. Saturn will make you think twice before taking daring risks but patience and self-discipline in not guaranteed. Saturn reserve and maturity are easily swayed by the strong and sexy influence of Mars and the fixed stars. Sun quincunx Saturn means you could swing between sober maturity and reckless disregard.

May 2018 Full Moon Summary

The militant fixed stars and Mars will urge you to go on the offensive and take what you want, regardless of the consequences. So it is important to listen to the wise words of elders, respect your traditions and learn from history. The polarities in this full moon mean you can expect strong opposition if you enter a contest. Winners have a lot to gain from this full moon but losers will pay a high price. So if you start a fight you should be confident, self-reliant and realistic about your chances of success.If the Full Moon May 2018 astrology chart directly impacts your horoscope decan you can read about it in your monthly horoscope.

  1. Forms part of my solar return on May 27.

    Interestingly my natal Venus is @ 8 degree so Venus return along with opposition from transiting Saturn. Now how do you interpret that Jamie 🙂

  2. Happening on my progressed moon AND my natal moon! My sun is 16 Pisces getting the Jupiter trine and Uranus is square my Leo ascendant. I’m thinking either my creative projects will come together or I’ll literally die. Obviously I’m hoping for the former. LOL.

  3. It will be right on top of my natal MC to the degree. Waiting for a big job to come through, I hope this is it.

  4. (If i use houses, this falls in my 2nd 8th sector) My natal sun is at 9 degrees gemini conjnuct both mars at 15 gemini and venus at 3 gemini, so the moon will oppose my sun mars conjunction. Falls rught on the tail of my may 30 solar return. What ever the energy will consist of, will this follow the the solar year for me?

    • Yes Tanya, the full moon chart will be similar to your solar return chart. But if you are using Houses it is important to cst your own solar return chart using precession correction and relocate the chart for where you are living for your birthday.

  5. If new moon falls in saggitarius at 8 degree then how it effects my decan.. my date of birth is 24.3.1987

  6. This full moon is smack on my natal Sun in 12. It seems like it should be important somehow – when the sun and transiting moon connect, does that mean it is a good time for a starting new project? Or is that with the new moon?

    • The best time for starting new projects is during the waxing moon phase, that is between a new moon and full moon.

  7. What significance does this have for my natal moon at 1 Aries 15 and natal Saturn at 11 Aries 54 (natal Jupiter at 6 Leo as well)?

    • The full moon does not aspect your natal Moon or Saturn and I don’t pay attention to Houses, only the Ascendant and Midheaven.
