Even though many are rounding out their second full month of sheltering in place, in many respects, time has continued on. For one thing, full moons are not canceled. In fact, this week’s full flower moon (a nickname it’s earned from happening during a time when flowers tend to be in bloom) in Scorpio is happening on May 7 at 6:45 a.m., EST, and it’s the last supermoon of the year. That means it’s going to be an intense time.

“The Scorpio full moon is arguably the most intense one of the year,” says Rachel Lang, intuitive astrologer and healer. “Scorpio is a sign that plunges the depths, emotionally and spiritually. The Scorpio full moon, therefore, reveals what’s hidden in those depths and in the darkness of our subconscious selves.”

The Scorpio full flower moon is all about introspection and trust, and though it’s intense, Lang says that intensity can skew positive if you embrace it as an opportunity to introspect and then change accordingly. “After the soul-searching, it’s time to take care of business, and you’ll want to take action to change aspects of your life that are not working for you. This is the beauty of the Scorpio full moon; it illuminates what needs to be healed or changed in your life, and then it shows you a path toward transformation,” she says.

Furthermore, despite being socially distanced from others, we’ll feel more in tune with the emotions of other people during this full moon than we have previously, thanks to Neptune’s involvement. “If you start feeling waves of emotions or mood swings, discern whether you’re picking up on others’ vibes or whether those emotions are your own. We have opportunities to more deeply connect with others during this full moon,” says Lang.

And finally, since this full flower moon opposes Mercury, we may feel increasingly analytical of ourselves and of others. “We crave knowledge and understanding,” she says. “We’ll also want to know what’s on the mind of our significant other or those closest to us,” she says. “But try not to stay present in your life to what is happening right now.” Below, Lang explains what exactly you can expect from this full flower moon, according to your sun sign.

Keep reading to see what this month’s full flower moon in Scorpio has in store for your sign.

Aries

Allow your financial fears to surface so you can overcome them. It’s a time to strategize how you can feel more abundance in your life.

Taurus

This full moon encourages you to look in the mirror and appreciate yourself. Take responsibility for your life, and own your choices. You’re discovering your power. Forgive others who’ve hurt you, so you can clear any negative energy you might be holding onto. Open yourself to a new beginning. This is a big one for your love life.

Gemini

Prioritize your health. This full flower moon is great to start a new healthy nutrition or fitness habit. Also, notice what stops you from making healthy choices; you’re self-disciplined when you set your mind to it, so work to adopt new habits that support your long-term goals.

Cancer

This full moon will be intensely creative for you, providing you with new ways to express yourself. Release yourself from any internal pressure to perform, achieve, or do. Instead go with the flow by relaxing and allow yourself to ride the waves of emotions.

Leo

Your home is your sanctuary, and this full flower moon helps you make it space of respite. Purge what you no longer need, declutter, and add more beauty wherever you can. Your family relationships are also undergoing a shift, and while the results will be favorable in the long run, you may be experiencing extra pressure from your loved ones right now. If you feel spread thin, do something for self care.

Virgo

This full moon amplifies your analytical skills, but be careful not to go down a rabbit hole with them. If you find yourself worrying about certain aspects of your life, find ways to still your mind. Relax, meditate, and trust that everything will work out. This is an excellent influence for inner work and personal growth.

Libra

This full moon puts pressure on your finances, but it also illuminates possibilities. You have new ideas about how to experience more abundance in your life.

Scorpio

This is your full moon, Scorpio, and you are going to benefit from that influence. Own your power and make a courageous move in your life. What do you want to accomplish? If you feel a buildup of emotions, use them as fuel to motivate action steps forward in your life.

Sagittarius

The Scorpio full moon can be introspective for you, but you want to make sure you’re not isolating yourself. Connect with others because those interactions will be more heart-centered right now. You could have a spiritual awakening, but it will likely come through a conversation or an event in your daily life. Pay attention to any signs or clues the universe gives you.

Capricorn

Your friendships are undergoing a shift, and this full moon shines a light on this area of your life. You are becoming more aware of which friends you can trust and which may need to become acquaintances. As a result, your idea of community is shifting. So, too, is your vision for the future. Perhaps this period of quarantine has made you more reflective of your life purpose. Now is the time to embrace new possibilities.

Aquarius

The full moon shines a spotlight on you, and you can achieve recognition for your work. You are becoming more aware of ways in which you shy away from the spotlight or resist drawing attention to yourself. With awareness, you can overcome any fears associated with being as successful and powerful as you were born to be. This is a time when you could receive a divine calling or a sense of your personal mission in life. Discover your purpose.

Pisces

This full moon invites you to explore your beliefs, especially those limiting ones that might hold you back from manifesting your heart’s desire. Have faith in yourself and in the universe. It’s a time to be curious. Ask questions of yourself, others, and the divine. You can receive guidance right now from a variety of sources. Pay attention to the signs and symbols in your environment.
