Happy Beltane! Feel the spring breeze dance through the trees as the faeries bring joy and laughter into our lives. The spring festival on May 1st heralds in a season of prosperity, fertility and growth with the blessing of the Taurus sun. The previous month’s sun in Aries inspired new beginnings and fresh starts as the seeds of new ideas were planted. Now that the sun’s in Taurus, we can nurture and watch those seeds blossom slowly into a beautiful garden of tangible possibilities and stability. This is a time of honoring our connection to Mother Nature and grounding our root chakras so that we can move forward with purpose and security.
With changes come the need to let go of the things we have outgrown. Mercury supports that lesson with its retrograde motion through Taurus until May 11th. It will show us where we are not feeding our spirits through the reflection of the physical areas of our lives that are out of whack. We’ll get a chance to get our physical bodies and finances into shape by looking at new ways of manifesting a solution.
Are you maintaining proper boundaries and saying no enough? Are you neglecting your health by putting your needs on hold to serve others? Get ready to be enrolled in the living your authentic self boot camp because Saturn takes no prisoners. With Saturn’s transit in Virgo through July 21st, you can expect that he’ll hold you accountable for your role in creating the situation and have you look at giving yourself and your life the self care it needs to move forward. Don’t be afraid to ask for Divine guidance in manifesting a second job or providing the support group needed to get you back on track. Invoke the Goddesses of abundance and opportunity to be your heavenly team. Hindu God Ganesh and Goddess Lakshmi are awaiting your spiritual call to action!
Feeling emotionally scattered or unable to focus? The Taurean energy encourages seeking out physical healing therapies to energetically root you back to the earth so you can ground your thoughts and think with more clarity. Carry a black onyx or any dark colored stone to help ground you and disperse negativity. You may also benefit from a healthy dose of green light therapy, yoga, feng shui or Angel Reiki to get you back into holistic alignment.
On May 13th, we welcome the new moon in Taurus. Money and success rituals really get a boost of powerful moon energy and grow over the next two weeks. Mars in Leo breathes confidence, fire and raw stamina into goal attainment. Assert yourself. Now is the time to own your power to make things happen. The Tarot card for May is the Sun, ensuring that our success lies in our belief that we can do anything we set our mind to, as long as we are not afraid to take that leap of faith to make it a reality and understand the lessons of patience and Divine timing. Be open to new ways of making money, job opportunities and making improvements to your home during this phase.
Do your home and office environments need an energy spruce for luck and positive flow of chi? The new moon may awaken the inner goddess to come out for a spell and work alongside Archangel Jophiel to create the beautiful spaces conducive to productivity. Just ask.
On May 19th, Venus dives deep into the heart of Cancer, bringing our attention towards the importance of the major relationships in our lives.

For the singles looking for romance, this Venus transit may blur the lines between lust and true love. So take things slowly in the dating process to make sure your feelings are built on a solid foundation.
May comes to a close with the full moon in Sagittarius and Uranus entering Aries on May 27th. Combined with the month’s 5 energy vibration, this is a major period of change, discovery and transformation, as we release old visions for an expansive way of thinking and being.
