During the Lunar Eclipse, the Earth is positioned between the Sun and the Moon, when the Sun and the Moon are face to face, which means they are in opposition.
We can see how the shadow of the Earth transforms the light in intense shades of red, brown, and then gray.
The Lunar Eclipses help us know about our true self, not the way we project ourselves in the outside world.
This is the reason we believe a Lunar Eclipse is an excellent time for self-discovery.

May 16, 2022 – Total Lunar Eclipse (Full Moon in Scorpio)
What does a lunar eclipse mean astrologically?
Astrologically speaking eclipses suggest shake-ups of all kinds. In the case of the Lunar Eclipse of May 16, you are more likely to be dealing with endings – some very emotional. You might find that certain things in your life get “eclipsed.” Things may suddenly leave jobs, relationships, and even beliefs and ideas.
If you began something at the previous New Moon, you may see it develop and grow only to end quickly or change. Perhaps you fell head over heels in love and you abruptly put the brakes on the relationship. Or maybe you got heavily involved in a project and decided to scrap it and start again. It is also possible that fate may just sweep in and do away with some of your hard work and efforts. But you know the old saying about “best-laid plans…”
On the other hand, a lunar eclipse can serve as a culmination point. Things began in earnest may come to their natural conclusions. Your hard work at the office on a project could pay off as a promotion and unexpected relocation for example. As famed astrologer Susan Miller says, a lunar eclipse is like three Full Moons in one. It can be a time of emotional intensity, ups and downs, and plenty of surprises.
Truth and Transformation
This brings us to Scorpio’s influence throughout this transit. Pluto the Lord of the Underworld rules Scorpio. This suggests that this Full Moon period will be one of digging deep to find the truth. It will also lead to great changes and transformation.
Ready or not, this May 16 Full Moon in Scorpio is asking you to shift. If you began the work during the New Moon you are ahead of the game, but no matter what, the winds of change are upon us. Now is the perfect time to rid yourself of the things that no longer serve you. Not sure what those things are? They will be apparent to you during this May 2022 Total Lunar Eclipse. Discoveries may be illuminating, shocking or even devastating, but you will be able to handle them as they are ultimately for your growth.
The energies of this Full Moon promise an awakening that spreads everywhere. Although deep and transformative changes are on the horizon, they will lead to your transformation. Much like the symbol of the phoenix rising from the ashes you will emerge renewed!

We are the ones who will find solutions, the gates for escape, or make the best decisions so that we can reach our goals.
Significance of Lunar Eclipses if They Aspect Your Chart:
The energy of the moon is internal, maternal, nurturing, and deeply emotional. When a lunar eclipse
occurs, the earth is passing between the Sun and the Moon, creating a Full Moon just like every other month; however, during an eclipse the alignment is perfect and the moon is covered for an hour or more by the shadow of the earth.
Full Moon energy is great, but it is suspended and absent briefly during the eclipse, therefore the eclipse influences you with a sense of lack, absence, or withholding. How that lack or absence is expressed depends totally on the house, sign, and planetary aspect delineated in your astrological birth
Lunar eclipses typically address relationship and connection issues with others described by the Moon’s position in your chart.
Depending upon your chart, these issues may take the form of severing, challenges, sudden mergers, bonding; it is a time to look within, confront our demons, old habits, fears.
Because the Sun and Moon are in opposing astrological signs, the Sun’s position may be expressed
in a release from what holds you back, opportunities for understanding, finding a balance in your life.
