Emotions will be magnified this weekend, according to astrologers, who predict the ‘flower’ full moon and lunar eclipse will bring chaos for all.
Intuitive astrologer Rose Smith claims the energy brought on by Mercury Retrograde will also be supercharged over the weekend and urges people to avoid making any big decisions.
‘Astrologically full moons are associated with our emotions, a time when we need to deal with issues from our subconscious; but a lunar eclipse, especially in Scorpio, adds to the mix and withheld emotions come to the forefront,’ Ms Smith told FEMAIL.
‘Eclipse energy is like a full moon on steroids, and it’s amplified! We need to be cautious of our emotions during the event as it will bring compelling hidden energies to the front of our minds.’
‘Lunar eclipses represent feminine energy and typically don’t last as long as solar eclipses – but that doesn’t mean that lunar eclipses are less potent… they may actually be more potent in the short term so even more reason to watch our emotions.’
Ms Smith, who also runs the largest psychic network based in the southern hemisphere, Absolute Soul Secrets, said to add to the emotional turmoil, Mercury and Pluto will be in retrograde.
‘With Mercury retrograde, be prepared for miscommunications and misunderstandings in relationships and problems with technology. It’s not a great time for travel or signing important documents either,’ she added.
‘It is a good time to complete things you started before beginning of Mercury Retrograde, that is before April 21. Mercury is also known as the ‘trickster’ – so beware of scams.’
‘Relationships will also be tested, so it’s important to give your partner space. With Pluto retrograde (beginning on May 1st) a radical metamorphosis may take place.’
‘Scorpio is a fixed water sign so take extra care of your emotions, and if you feel ‘triggered’ by anything… write it down,’ said Ms Smith.
‘Expressing your feelings on paper takes the edge off! It’s an emotional time for many and there might be a special connection with women generally, or your mother.’
Ms Smith said Scorpio could also bring with it the revelation of big secrets, and trouble could be brewing on many fronts.
‘Scorpios have an intensiveness and allure where they can magnetise people and things towards them. But it’s a double-edged sword, some things brought to Scorpios they are better off not to have.’
Ms Smith said all star signs will experience a few intense and challenging days around the lunar eclipse – but especially other fixed signs joining Scorpio – Taurus, Leo and Aquarius.
She also said depending on what house your moon is in, behaviours, arguments and past traumas – may all come up into your consciousness.
