SHOW NOTES FOR EPISODE 24 (5/4/20)
24 | Scorpio Full Moon & Lunar Nodes for Grasshoppers
April and Jen approach the Full Moon week with beginner’s mind, as the Lunar Nodes shift into Gemini and Sagittarius for the next 18 months. Also: Saturn in Aquarius turning retrograde signals that it’s time to reassess commitments and do some foundational retrofitting; Mercury dons a rakish silk hat; the Sun points a finger; and a Scorpio Full Moon just made for deep-cleaning. Plus, googly eyes and gold stars!

01:59 – April and Jen would like to give our listeners a golden 5-star rating! (And listen to Episode 22, Taurus New Moon & Venus Gone Wild to hear Jen’s parents reminisce about 80s music and Jen’s tween years.) Here is a fine example of Jen’s googly-eyed food art:
06:35 – Mercury is quietly superior as he joins up with the Sun at 15 Taurus in his muffler and rakish silk hat (May 4). (And to learn about April’s Murphy bed and new pathway fanciness, revisit Episode 5, Unboxing Eclipses.)
09:30 – Drumroll, please! The Lunar Nodes change signs (May 4): The North Node moves into Gemini, and the South Node moves into Sagittarius. Embrace the questioning path, the uncertainty; be curious and open-minded, and cultivate beginner’s mind. (Another reason to listen to Episode 5, Unboxing Eclipses: You can learn all about the Nodes of the Moon! Yay! And to review how mindfulness can help overcome stress, go to Episode 18, Aries New Moon and a Kerflooey World.) And order April’s eclipse report here.
18:54 – ** Moonwatch**! The Full Moon is at 17°20’ Scorpio on May 7 on the Sabian symbol, “A woods rich in autumn coloring.” This speaks of a glow before the leaves drop their leaves. The Sun at 18° Taurus is, “A woman holding a bag out a window.” Time to clean house, literally and metaphorically.
24:35 – The Sun and Moon are square Mars in Aquarius at this Full Moon. Mars is the minion on the right.
25:56 – Saturn turns retrograde on May 10 on the Sabian symbol 2 Aquarius, “An unexpected thunderstorm.” Reassess commitments made and renegotiate if necessary. On July 1, Saturn re-enters Capricorn for a last hurrah. It’s like a house appraisal! Look to the Capricorn area of your chart to find out what needs shoring up. Or, schedule a reading with April, and she’ll tell you all about your chart!
31:32 – The Sun sextiles Neptune on May 10. The Sabian symbol for 21 Taurus is, “A finger pointing in an open book.” This is an opportunity to elevate ourselves. The answers may present themselves clearly… Will you take advantage of the opportunity that is presented? Or, maybe the answer is already close at hand … that book is open, after all, grasshopper. But remember: Much to learn, you still have.
