As you may already know, this year 2015 is a 13 Moon year, the last being in 2012. The Fifth Full Moon for this 13 Moon-Year-Cycle is on May 4 at 03:43 TDT in 13 degrees 23 minutes Scorpio.
The Full Moon in the Fixed Water sign of Scorpio influences processes of fundamental transformation on all levels as well as sudden release of energy. The focus this month will be around change, power, will and intense emotional desire. The Moon in Scorpio is considered a difficult challenge as it sheds light on the shadow and hidden things within. Personal character issues around possessiveness, jealousy, grudges, revenge, brooding and domination will be brought to the surface for healing and transformation this month.
If there is clear intent and high motivation present, then deep healing, purification and transformation can be accomplished not only on a personal level but also within the collective global consciousness. Be prepared to look into the darkness of your soul and have it look back at you. But, also be willing to walk through this dark passage of the psyche without judgement, but in the attitude of acceptance and openness in order to move into a higher frequency. This is an opportunity to contact that shadow part of yourself that creates self-destructive patterns which keeps you from creating and manifesting your goals and dreams. Every person that triggers you is a reflection of a part of yourself that you have not dealt with. We can only accomplish this shift in frequency by embracing the shadow within ourselves and thereby transmuting it from within.
The Moon in Scorpio activates intense emotional reactions, strong psychic sensitivity to unseen forces and the darker desires of the personality. Know also that this configuration brings to the surface concerns around inheritance, partnerships, marriage, financial affairs and insurance.
The Sabian symbol associated with 13 degrees Scorpio is – ‘An inventor performs a laboratory experiment.’ – Driving power towards achievement, as featured in all benefactors of mankind. Self-sufficient activity; Clever outwitting.
The Native American Fifth Moon of Creation is known as the Flower Moon. ‘The Fifth moon of Creation is Flower Moon, where all plants display their Spirit sides for the world to see. This life giving energy is one of the most powerful healing medicines on Mother Earth. During this moon we are encouraged to explore our spiritual essences.’ – 13 Grandmother Moon Teachings.

Esoteric Significance of 2015 – The Mars Influence
In esoteric astrology this year 2015 is under the influence of Mars, whose energy is described as - action influenced by the desire principle. Mars governs courage, impulsive emotional behaviour, ambition and expressions of forceful energy. When these Mars energies are in balance they can be channelled for positive growth and change. When unbalanced and aimed within, these energies will lead to self-destruction. This unbalanced energy aimed outward will lead to extremes in violent behaviour. Aggression is the underlying current for the year under Mars’ influence.
