The Scorpio Full Moon, El Nath, Venus and Nemesis as Extremes Come Together

Tommorow's Full Moon in Scorpio is generating a lot of ominous buzz from astrologers and those who are prone to emotional waves. The occult, the shadow side of life and primal passions are boiling and aroused to say the least. The Scorpio Moon will pick up speed in the morning with sextiles to both Mars and Pluto (twin rulers of the Scorpion. Before the Full Moon hits the last of the explosive Mercury Aries transits in hard aspect occurs, this time to Saturn (exact 6:09 PM UT). The Moon will be not only at 16 Scorpio 01 degree with a conjunction to fixed star Zuben Elgenubi - indicating major social reform. The Heliacal Rising Star for the chart set for London @ 3:35 AM on this powerful but strange full Moon is Deneb Algedi -a star in the Sea Goat's tail. called the "Judicial Point of the Goat" per Robson. This again is about the rule of law or the rule of justice. Supreme court decisions and major legal cases are set to be completed. Symbolically it is about desiring the legal, physical or metaphyical laws that govern the world. For the chosen it can bring great glory, fame, wealth, dignity and authority with the help of influence. the Heliacal Setting Star is Zosma a multicolored triple star on the Lion's rump, near the tail of the Lion. Zosma is about victimization or being made powerless. Zosma relates to sacrifice yet independent, one who would prefer death rather than servitude to an unloved career. This also relates to the wounded healers who become advocates for equality. This is pertinent since Mars, ruler of this chart is opposing Chiron in Pisces. Jupiter will be at 21 degrees 47 minutes of Taurus expansion of pleasure seeking, food trends, farming, abundance, extravagance in art. Note that this is a critical degree: 21 degrees of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius are critical degrees but with a tendency to misfortune. Where there is Venus the Goddess there is surely Mars, the Warrior. Below is a chart set for May 6th @ 3:35 AM UT in London England with Aries rising and Mercury in aggressive Aries in the first house. Right before the Full Moon Mercury exactly opposes Saturn (@ 2:09 AM UT). This has already been an explosive transit like all the preceding Mercury-Uranus conjunctions in Aries or the last Mercury square to Pluto on April 25th.

Lunatic Alert for extremists of all signs especially on the fringe of the pseudo occult. Yes there will be rituals and sightings of famous illuminati members creating a world of illusion and paradox. The bottom line is that another "super-Moon" is in the offing. We should expect some major earth changes both in the Northern and Southern Hemisphere. This perigee full Moon starting in May will be as much as 14% bigger and 30% brighter than other full moons of 2012.
Venus met El Nath by longitude/aspect at Sunset on May 4th. On he Full Moon over London or SF. El Nath is rising with Venus via paran putting even more emphasis on the anti-social or should we say contra-social aspect of this Full Moon. Yes the brillant Evening Star, Venus, was not alone meeting the Second-magnitude star El Nath is less than a degree away Per Robson: Venus with El Nath is favorable for gain, while enemies who are powerless to injure (El Nath the horn in the constellation Taurus). El Nath marks the tip of the northern or left horn of the Bull. Venus will also be conjunct Capella (constellation Auriga), Phact (constellation the Dove ) Phact is about the quest for adventure. Venus also conjuncts Bellatrix (marking the left shoulder of Orion the Hunter. Bellatrix is the known as the Amazon star or Roaring Conqueror - the Female Warrior who succeeds via the shadow side of life. Bellatrix with Venus is the rogue. Whether you are a rogue or a conventionalist those who want to succeed and overcome will be aided also by a Grand Earth Trine. This trine will involve Mars in pragmatic yet pedantic Virgo to Vesta-Ceres-Sun in fertile Taurus and to Pluto now retrograde in Capricorn offering a behind the scenes approach. The Grand Earth Trine also coincides with major earth changes especially since the ongoing Uranus-Pluto waxing square is affected. Speaking of sudden seismic shifts and volcanoes erupting as the earth herself continues in this "ascension" process. Energies deep within the earth's core up toward the mantle and ready to burst are much stronger during this lunation and the subsequent days after.
On May 5th at the Full Flower Moon the ruler of the Taurus contingency, Venus is @ +27 degrees 49' North by declination marking a long period of time till June 2nd
when this goddess of love and beauty is Out of Bounds and wild. This is a time when the limits are being broken in these arenas.

A new element is added to this Extreme Venusian Saga - asteroid Nemisis @ 22 degrees Sagittarius Rx is closely opposing our Goddess of the feminine and harmony.

In Greek mythology, Nemisis or "the goddess of Rhamnous" relates to divine retribution against those who succumb to hubris (arrogance before the gods).
On Saturday's Full Moon Nemisis and Venus will be only 28 minutes apart! As I have the "War on Women" is in synch with this OOB period which started on April 2nd) Venus transiting in Gemini will enhance communications, aiding more of us to talk about our feelings of love and senses. The Out of Bounds Venus triggers us to go beyond limits in those more feminine areas of VENUS - Goddess of Love, Beauty and sensory pleasures is reacting to a critical, pedantic yet service oriented Mars in Virgo This Full Moon will be exciting, highly transformative, dangerous from the overly extreme nature inherent in the above configurations. Scorpio as I have mentioned in a previous entry is rising over San Francisco at the time of the Full Moon. This adds a an investigative element to this lunation when the phoenix will rise as the revelations about the truth behind the news is brought into the light.
The Heliacal Rising Star over SF. and the West Coast is is Al Rescha or Alrisha which is the Knot of the Cords, which joins ends of the ribbons that binds the two Fishes by tail in the constellation Pisces. In this placement Al Rescha will help bring together differing ideas, concepts and knowledge much like joining the two hemispheres of the brain. Another factor relating to this Rising Star involves the disparate opposition of Mercury-Saturn but in a positive light. Per Ptolemy "Those stars in Pisces which are in the head of the southern fish have the same influence as Mercury, and, in some degree, as Saturn...those in the tail and in the southern line are like Saturn, and, moderately, like Mercury. This is the joining of the Northern and Southern Fishes. This star will help join many of the extreme ideas and crusader-like concepts to a more, solid grounded footing as the Grand Earth Trine continues. The Heliacal Setting star over the West Coast is Vindemiatrix a bright yellow star in the right wing of the constellation Virgo- the Virgin Angel. Vindemiatrix is the collector and a person driven to complete things. Vindemiatrix is culminating as Venus is Setting adding to cultural change. In this position we should expect a real boost to agricultural production and research which of course relates to Jupiter in Taurus. Consider the original name and myth per Robson: Vindemiator, the Gatherer of Grapes, represented Ampelos, the son of a satyr and a nymph, to whom Bacchus, in token of his fondness, gave a vine planted at the foot of an elm. While gathering grapes Ampelos fell and broke his neck, whereupon Bacchus, God of Wine and reveries, placed him among the stars as a memorial of his former affection. There will be some major news about the grape producing regions of California and the West Coast. The sustainable farming movement will be one of the best parts of this Full Moon.
