Full Moon May 7, 2020 – Healing & Compassion

Full Moon May 2020 AstrologyThe Scorpio full moon on Thursday, May 7, 2020, is the first positive moon phase for six weeks. Full moon May 2020 has a spiritual, healing and compassionate influence because of Mercury sextile Neptune.

The May 2020 full moon will make people generally more sympathetic and understanding. It will make you more sensitive but also better able to understand your conflicting emotions. Importantly, it will then help you envisage a brighter future once the loss and suffering from the coronavirus pandemic begin to subside.

Full Moon Meaning

Sun opposite Moon brings your home, family, and intimate relationships into sharper focus for the following two weeks of this moon phase. Opposing forces such as work versus home, or what you need versus what you want, create inner tension and external pressures. This can lead to conflict and crises that drain your energy.

The lunar qualities of emotions and instincts reach their peak at a full moon. So use your increased emotional strength and intuition to overcome any relationship challenges. Subconscious awareness allows for an impartial and balanced look at your personal relationships. You will clearly see any relationship dynamics or negative feelings causing disharmony.

Full Moon Aspects

Full Moon opposite Mercury makes the understanding and communication of your feelings a major theme of this moon phase. Inner conflict between your thoughts and your feelings may occur, resulting in confusion, polarized thinking or anxiety. Tribalism, nationalism, and other prejudices are possible.

Misunderstandings and arguments are possible but the harmonious aspect to Neptune reduces these risks. This is a good full moon for spending quiet time in reflection or talking to a close friend about your inner feelings which you sense are holding you back.

Full Moon trine Neptune heightens your emotions, imagination, and creativity. Increased intuition and psychic awareness help you understand your feelings. This reduces anxiety and makes misunderstanding less likely. And if disagreements do occur, this harmonious, compassionate and spiritual influence encourages compromise, cooperation, and forgiveness.

You may dream up or fantasize about an ideal partner but are just as likely to meet someone special now. Relationships formed during this moon phase would have a soul mate feel to them. Friends may come to you for comforting or a shoulder to cry on. Your caring, sympathetic side is enhanced so this is a good full moon to be of service to your loved ones and also the wider community.

Mercury sextile Neptune is virtually exact (0°00′42″), occurring only 3 minutes before full moon May 2020. So this positive aspect far outweighs the challenging influence of the full moon opposite Mercury. People should generally be sympathetic and understanding, with an idealistic view of how the world should be.

You will still be extremely sensitive to all vibrational energy from other people and the environment. But you can trust your gut feelings. This aspect gives accurate intuition and perceptive skills, and very often psychic abilities. You may receive spiritual information through dreams, meditation, your spirit guide, or through chance encounters.

Your intuitive abilities will be an asset in all of your communications. Relationships will benefit from this spiritual and compassionate influence. Your words become soothing and can actually be healing to others. Your hands can also be healing so this is a great full moon for romantic massages.

This is a good full moon for creative pursuits like literature, poetry, drama, singing, art, design, and fashion. It is also good for relaxation, movies, yoga, astrology, tarot, lucid dreaming, and meditation.

  1. Oh this is such lovely news Jamie! Thanks, I was waiting for this. 🙂 sigh of relief whew!

    How might this affect me with my current transits? They’re a doozy – Saturn square Pluto while on the last year of Pluto square Saturn. Saturn square Venus. Chiron square MC. Jupiter square Mars Saturn Pluto. (Have a Mars Saturn Pluto stellium in Libra square natal Venus in Capricorn). I’m getting hammered but I’m still standing.

    Will things get better once I get to mid may? I have most of these transits till end of the year.

    One lovely transit is Jupiter conjunction Venus right now . Thank heavens for that at least. I’m not sure how much it helps though. Food and basic survival is very much a concern right now. I am disabled and recovering from a lot of abuse so very much under the pump. Living alone. Hoping to rely on the kindness of others to shop for me as I run out of supplies.

    Oddly enough, for me with my natal Mars conjunct Saturn I am somewhat amazed to find the world suddenly experiencing what I have lived with for life – severe restrictions, frustration, deep fear, can’t win no matter what I do experiences, chronic illness, depression, anxiety etc. I’ve always felt like I lived on another planet from everyone and no one understood me/people were quick to dismiss/deny/scapegoat me. That no one saw my reality. Pluto only magnified this aspect. All My life.

    And now suddenly I see everyone around me struggling with the some of same issues I’ve battled for 13 years. Chronic illness. Chronic pain. Bedridden for years at the mercy of a family of abusers. Nervous breakdowns and a deep depression. Terror that comes from the uncertainty of not knowing what the future holds. Disability. Abuse. Trauma. Finances in tatters. Unable to travel/socialise/earn money. And I realise. I was NEVER weak/damaged/lazy. I was abused so badly that I was blamed for the abuse heaped on me. NOONE else I know is handling this well. And most of them are healthy/able bodied/little Past Trauma.

    13 years later – I see that it would have killed most people to survive what I survive alone. It took a global pandemic crippling the world to make me see that I am beyond strong. Fragile of course but strong underneath. While others around me are struggling with just a few months of lockdown (and I am too, try being disabled and having JUST escaped an abusive living situation, can’t even cook for myself without being in pain, can’t go grocery shopping/drive. Lucky if I can take a walk once a week.) I am looking at everyone and thinking “this is my life for the last 13 years. No big deal. Why is everyone so panicky about having to be at home for a little while? At least they don’t have to feel like they’re the only ones imprisoned while the world forgets them and moves on. They’re all in it together and are supporting each other. I had none of this when I was trapped. AND they are not socrippled with chronic pain that sometimes they need to stay in bed for days while worrying about what they will eat! “.

    The absurd gift of Saturn Pluto – it’ll nearly kill you many times through your life /subject you to agony, but it will give you strength that you will only see years later when other around you are floundering. And you find yourself being the most sensible and level headed when others panic. Because you’ve been in prison that long yourself that it’s just another year!

    So glad I learnt astrology. I have no idea if I will make it out alive. This virus is a real threat to my not so robust health already. But at least it helps me see my strength from time to time even as I struggle right now.

    Next year when Pluto will finish hammering my stellium – I hope it will be the start of a whole new life. I bloody well deserve it. I have lived most of my life in a metaphorical lockdown. Am only now gaining admiration for myself after despising myself all my life – and I want to see happiness and health before this life is over.

    Thanks for reading. And stay safe!

    • Hi Jan, it’s wonderful to hear how you are dealing so well with your circumstances – I wanted to reach out to you because your story is all so familiar to me. I’m also a survivor of chronic narcissistic, physical, mental, emotional and sexual abuse. I had chronic fibromyalgia, C-PTSD, and my illnesses led to CVS (Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome) that put me in hospital 2 weeks of every month until last year. The fibro pain was crippling, I was lucky if I could stand long enough to brush my teeth in the bathroom even once a week at the worst point.

      Yet, I survived – and I think that Chiron’s return to Aries (as in my natal chart) is very much at the root of this. Would I be correct in thinking that you were born between 1968 – 1977? If so, you have a lot of healing coming your way! Chiron re-entered Aries in 2018, and will remain there until 2027, and represents the wounded warrior: the 9 of wands in Tarot.

      Since Chiron returned to its position in my natal chart, I was able to initiate a lot of healing. I have gone from being bedridden / in hospital and often in screaming agony to being mobile, off ALL of the meds, and have manifested a dream life where I have moved to Crete, Greece in a beautiful apartment with a shared swimming pool, so I can exercise and continue to gain strength. I had no money, but believed that I could do this – so please trust me when I say everything is possible.

      You have such a positive attitude, and you vibrate on a very high level, so I think it should be pretty easy for you to make a similar miraculous recovery to my own. My doctors are stunned – they could never imagine that I could get well again, and live without a 24/7 carer! I assume that the pain that you are in is from FMS (fibromyalgia) – this is an extremely common outcome from the type of abuse that we both endured. The first thing to know is that the prolonged stress that this caused in childhood affects your gut – and there is a gut / brain connection. Most people with FMS have “leaky gut syndrome” and severe IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) issues. It may be that you have already eliminated gluten from your diet – you don’t seem to have crippling “brain fog” problems – but as some alternative health practitioners online report that 100% of their FMS patients respond very favourably to removing gluten from their diet, I need to mention this.

      In my case, it is specifically wheat that caused the vast majority of my pain. After removing wheat / gluten from my diet, 80% of my pain disappeared within 3 weeks. I studied physiology / pharmacology at uni, so I am a little ahead of the game in working out my own health issues, and really hope that sharing what I discovered may also help you to recovery – believe me, you CAN win!

      Anyway, apart from FMS being largely due to gluten intolerance in many people, I made a further connection, and discovered that I was suffering from yet another rare condition: HIT (histamine intolerance). Eating foods high in histamine after I have been “glutened” also cause FMS pain, IBS, & CVS for me. Clues that HIT might be an issue include: PMS, severe reactions to some insect bites / stings, migraines, chronic nasal congestion and more. Here’s a link that I believe you will resonate with! https://healthygut.com/articles/how-to-get-relief-from-a-histamine-intolerance/

      Anyway, once I dealt with my undiagnosed issues, my FMS, pain, fatigue and misery has almost entirely gone. Even the mental anguish of my C-PTSD has faded to a mere shadow. Stress also causes a histamine flood, so I do occasionally get a minor fibro-flare which lasts a maximum of 2 days, and ingesting wheat causes a reaction in me that lasts a week – 10 days max. now. Not all wheat is equal – ones that have been sprayed with glyphosate (Roundup) are worst. Some people find that they are eventually able to eat wheat / gluten again – I am able to eat e.g. barley, which also contains gluten, but I am hypersensitive to flour. Someone tossing a piece of floured bread across the dinner-table caused enough flour particles to fly into the air and 2 minutes later my throat started to close, my eyes were streaming, and my nasal congestion returned. Wheat is my Kryptonite!

      Whatever food it is, please do be assured that it is a food allergy that causes FMS pain – in 100% of cases. You can – and will – heal. You are an amazingly strong and special person, and deserve ALL of the best things in life. Please allow me to share the other steps I took in finding my way to health and wellness, and be most assured that pharma drugs (which may contain wheat starch!) are definitely NOT the answer!

      First of all, I would recommend that you find out how our genes ACTUALLY work – it’s not how we were taught in school! The science of epigenetics is extremely exciting, and proves that you control your genes – not that they control you, as we were taught. Look on YouTube for Bruce Lipton’s “Biology of Belief” full lecture. This is a game-changer – WOW!

      Secondly, I would suggest that you start meditating, but this is extremely difficult for anyone with fibro-fog, so instead I recommend going to YouTube and finding Lucy Herzig Booster. This is a subliminal affirmation that starts to reprogram your mind without any conscious effort. Listen to this at least 2x per day.

      Thirdly, meditation / hypnosis is indeed the answer in reprogramming your mind and releasing past pain – your genes store the trauma of the past, which is why they create present pain. You should go with any YouTube guided meditation that resonates with you, and especially focus on cleansing and opening your chakras; my personal favourites are Jason Stephenson, Trigram Healing, Rasa Lukosiute, and Open Door Hypnosis from Shara Prophet. Her grounding hypnosis is simply awesome – to the point that I engaged her services as a certified hypnotherapist, so I definitely give my person recommendation.

      I truly hope that this will help you. Love, light and blessings to you, Jan. xx

      • Mairi, you told my story almost verbatim. I moved to Lamia, Greece, from Portland, Oregon, in Sept 2012 after 16 years of severe FMS, ME-CFS, PTSD, and eventually type II diabetes; I was basically on a couch. I was 57 when I left Oregon and stopped eating wheat, threw away all my medications, upped my good fats, started moving, and started sleeping. I quit smoking, got into recovery, started aerobic exercise, Tai Chi, and meditation. I had been meditating since I was 13, but the 24/7 pain destroyed all my faith in myself and a Universal Power. Well, I’m believer now! I had a spiritual awakening. Life is indeed a co-creation.

        I lived in Greece until Nov 2013, and decided to return to Oregon where I helped my mother pass on and where my two sons live. I became a certified group fitness instructor and a care giver at 62, and now at 63, my life is a joy. My grandson just turned 18 and graduates from high school this year. I became an international folk dancer. And a book of my collected poetry is being published in a couple of months, “Hélas, Hellas, Persephone.” And I’m still in love with Greek and Greece!

        God bless you both, Jan and Mairi. There is infinite hope, believe it. ~Laura oxoxoxo

  2. I passed by just to check on the full moon news and i read on the comments the stories of three amazing , unbelievably strong , unique human beings. I have no words , i cant imagine what you ve been through… I send you love and the magical light of my beautiful country, Greece.

  3. Thankyou to the three women who shared on here there stories. Natural is best, the body will heal as the mind overcomes it’s fixity. Bruce Lipton is so right on with his methods. 🙏

  4. I want quick results, my moon is in Aries trine Mars in Sag, I have to heal fast so I pop a pill for my allergy, can’t do natural, takes too long.

  5. hey i just came here to read about the full moon and came across the comments and must say you ladies are wonderful and an inspiration to people like us who complains so much for everything .May you all amazing people heal fast and have a awesome life <3

  6. I’ve literally never felt so depressed and it literally began as soon as the moon entered scorpio, though I tend not to put lots of weight on that sort of shift.

    All that’s changed is I suddenly notice how literally all my friends are unreliable af – selfish children expecting me to do 110% of their emotional labour for them.

    I have never felt so close to jumping off a high rise. F*** this moon.

  7. I wouldn’t do it. My grandmother did that, and it’s quite a legacy to leave to your children. This too shall pass. ~L

  8. I just had to comment because of the title “Angry Phoenix.” Because this full moon was on my ascendant, opposite my chiron and squaring my Leo sun, mc and mercury. Angry Phoenix is the perfect description! And I am still crying my eyes out, hah!
