We will be having an exact Full Moon in Scorpio on Monday, May 4th at 3:42am Universal Time (11:42pm on May 3rd in Eastern Time). Full Moons are the peak of the Moon cycle, as this is when the light of the Sun completely fills the Moon and marks the beginning of the following 2 weeks when the light starts to go away, which is known as the “waning phase.” Symbolically, because this is when the light begins to recede, this represents time of “release.” Full Moons are generally the most intense time of the Moon cycle and are also a very lively time.
