Monday, May 4th at 8:02 p.m., eastern time, the Moon enters Scorpio where it will be directly opposed by Mars – by 8:42 p.m., eastern time the Ascendant will join the party in Scorpio along with the long-term guest of Saturn.  These placements are not going to promote harmony and we may have to endure a Monday evening filled with angst and short tempers.  By Tuesday, May 5th the intensity will be lessened but still on the darker side.  It is a good time to have anti-stress tools ready and to remember that sometimes emotions can be one of most troublesome illusions of all.  .
