What else should I know about the blood moon lunar eclipse in Scorpio?

Major events happen near lunar eclipses. They always take place on a full moon—and are three times more intense, emotional and powerful. This is the first eclipse in Scorpio (25 degrees) that will echo during the Taurus-Scorpio eclipse period that takes place between 2021 and 2023. There will be two other Scorpio eclipses to follow within the coming year. Lunar eclipses often bring their momentous news on the day of the event, within the week of it and more rarely a month prior or after. This is called eclipse season. Pay attention to the news that occurs now, as it will shift your life significantly over the coming six months.

In ancient times, humanity feared lunar eclipses, as they felt great darkness, tragedy or foreboding was set to happen. However, in the present day, we see lunar eclipses as periods in time when there are mighty breakthroughs, breakdowns, endings or achievements. They tend to bring a crisis for us to face, triggering internal fears or emotions and propel us to take action.

Lunar eclipses in Scorpio bring great attention to how we share resources in our lives and within the world. Striking a balance between what we give and receive will be extremely important and any imbalances within these themes will be tremendously important to face. Investments, assets and large money matters will be rocked by this eclipse. Also, as Scorpio is the zodiac sign that rules intimacy, sexuality, the shadow self and the occult—these topics will be thrust upon the global stage. When it comes to important astrological aspects to pay attention to, the lunar eclipse will dance beautifully with Mars, Jupiter, Neptune and Pluto.

This reveals that we will feel energized to strike out and take the lead in our lives, and if we do so, luck, joy and success are sure to follow. Many people may find that opportunities to pursue some of their dearest hopes and dreams are presented to them, and by digging deeply into our psyches, we can find the ambition and courage to step into this new phase of our lives. However, the lunar eclipse will be in a very challenging link to Saturn, showing that pressure will be placed upon us and we will have to face blockages and obstacles to get what we most desire.

Luckily, with Mars and Pluto in the lead because they rule Scorpio—we are sure to have the tenacity and conviction we need to move mountains. Trust that you have the strength and cosmic energy on your side to get where you need to go. Reflect back upon what was happening in your life near May 16, 2003, as this eclipse will echo those similar themes.

When and where can I see the blood moon lunar eclipse?

A total lunar eclipse takes place when the moon falls in the path of the Earth’s shadow. This turns it blood red, brown or orange—or may cause it to vanish entirely! This is why total lunar eclipses are called blood moons.

The full moon in May has many names: the Flower Moon (Algonquin), Budding Moon and Leaf Budding Moon (Cree), Planting Moon (Dakota, Lakota), Egg Laying Moon and Frog Moon (Cree) and Moon of the Shedding Ponies (Oglala). These names reference that spring is in full bloom and warmer weather is on the way.

The lunar eclipse will be visible over South and West Europe, South and West Asia, Africa, most of North America, South America, the Pacific, the Atlantic, Indian Ocean and Antarctica. It will last in totality for 1 hour and 25 minutes, with the overall duration being seen for 5 hours and 19 minutes. On the East Coast, it will occur at 12:12 A.M. on May 16, 2022, whereas on the West Coast, it will take place at 9:12 P.M. upon May 15, 2022. This will be one of the longest total lunar eclipses until 2029!
