May Star Gazings
The month of May brings a few key happenings that will test you or bless you, depending on how you choose to see it. May starts off with a need for ease and rejuvenation with Venus and Jupiter meeting up in Pisces on April 30th, which just so happens to also spark off eclipse season with a solar eclipse in Taurus the same day.
Things get a bit more dicey as Mercury Retrograde creeps in on May 10th, reminding us to slow down and think before we leap... and speak. Then, on May 15th, we have a total lunar eclipse in Scorpio that's sure to dig up any skeletons that you've been trying to hide away and ignore.
Needless to say, May will be a very humbling month for many. You can either choose to see it as a punishment, or take a step back and see the bigger picture coming together shift by shift, flow by flow.
I encourage you to use the below May Star Gazings as a guiding light to help you navigate the choppy waters that this month brings. Be sure to read your Sun, Moon, and Rising sign for more clarity on the month ahead.
And, if you want to take a deeper dive into what the month of May has in store for you, then you know where to find me. Happy May, loves! 🖤
FIRE SIGNS 🔥
🐏 ARIES (March 20 - April 19)
King of Wands: Last month you had the Hermit reversed which asked you to step out of the cave and into more clarity with the wisdom you acquired during your time of reflection. This month you're being asked to reconnect to your passions and step back into a leadership role. Channel your ambitions into manifestations and use your individuality to inspire others. Actions speak louder than words, so be the change you want to see.
🦁 LEO (July 22 - Aug 22)
9 of Cups: Your cups runneth over this month, Leo, so be sure to stop and smell the roses because you've earned it. Before heading off onto the next adventure or goal, be sure to enjoy what you've accomplished thus far. Relish in the success that your hard work has afforded you. If there ever were a time to set an intention or make a wish, now's the time!
🏹 SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 - Dec 20)
The Chariot (rx): You may have the urge to force your way forward this month, but right now the Universe is asking you to take a pause to assess things before taking action. When The Chariot is in reverse, there's a sense of a false start or an intentional delay that's necessary before charging forward. Use this time to dot your i's and cross your t's, especially with Mercury Retrograde happening May 10th. Take your time, do it right -- all good things in good timing.
EARTH SIGNS 🌎
🐂 TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)
The Hermit: There's something that needs to be unveiled to you but that can only come through meditation or introspection. Be mindful of when your body and energy are asking you to take a step back to gain more clarity (or confirmation) on a situation. There's no need to rush things along, this time away is intended for you to reconnect with your inner wisdom so that you may come out of this season more connected and empowered. When that "missing piece" is finally unveiled to you, then you'll understand why you were asked to take a step back and allow the Universe to do what it needed for you to know which path to take forward.
🌾 VIRGO (Aug 23 - Sept 22)
Queen of Cups: Oh, Virgo, this is the month to really reconnect to your heart-center and allow your intuition to guide you through the choppy and uncertain waters of May. When you feel your emotions getting out of hand, simply remind yourself that you are in full control and have the power to redirect your energy out of your head and into your heart. You may need to show yourself more tender loving care this month than usual, so don't feel guilty filling up your cup.
🐐 CAPRICORN (Dec 21 - Jan 19)
Page of Swords: You may have the urge this month to jump into some sort of new beginning (job, project, studies, etc.) that requires you to trek uncharted territory. Don't let fear or inexperience hold you back because this may be the opportunity for which you've been wishing and hoping. Be open to learning, growing, and seeing things with fresh eyes -- it's time to write a new chapter in your life, so be sure it's the adventure of your choosing. Let this be the beginning of something beautiful that will blossom over time and grow into a dream manifested.
AIR SIGNS 🌬
👯♀️ GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)
3 of Cups (rx): It's time to get real with yourself to see where you're allowing other people, situations, and ways of thinking to deplete you. If you've been feeling exhausted lately, then this is your sign to take a step back from the people and things that are draining you and turn the focus on your own well-being. Do some reflection on why you're allowing these energy-sucks in your life. Are you overcompensating for something in which you feel deficient? Are you doing for others what you don't have the courage to do for yourself? Are you escaping? Consider all these things this month to find the cause of the "leak" and remedy it before it leaves you high and dry.
⚖️ LIBRA (Sept 23 - Oct 22)
2 of Swords: You may be face with a tough decision this month that needs to be made but the way forward isn't so clear just yet. Try not to rush this decision or feel the need to. Also, try not to get too in your head about things or allow failures/doubt from the past to cloud your judgement. Right now, let your intuition direct you toward the chosen path and trust that you can and will make the right decision for yourself. If you need support or a second opinion, ask a trusted source but, ultimately, do what you feel in your heart to be true.
🏺AQUARIUS (Jan 20 - Feb 17)
Knight of Wands: Last month you had the 9 of Wands which asked you to consider how bad you wanted "X" and whether it was worth fighting for -- this month, the Knight of Wands asks you to focus your efforts and take charge! Call upon this Knight's fiery energy to ignite your passions and drive you forward with fervor. Let your goal be your passion and your success be your mission!
WATER SIGNS 🌊
🦀 CANCER (June 21 - July 21)
Wheel of Fortune (rx): You've been through some stuff lately, Cancer -- and although this might hurt, the good news is that these changes are happening so that you may get unstuck and realigned with a higher truth. Don't focus your energy on trying to control external forces right now and, instead, channel your energy inward. Use this time to find peace in the chaos and hope in the fear, it's a time of preparation. I leave you with the wise words of Brian Tracy, "Resolve to be a master of change rather than a victim of change."
🦂 SCORPIO (Oct 23 - Nov 21)
6 of Wands: The sweet scent of victory is in the air, dear Scorpio! Step into the spotlight and reap the rewards of your success. It's time to wear your crown proudly and, most importantly, give yourself a huge pat on the back for a job well done. Take this time to really appreciate your hard work -- and although a person cannot rest on their laurels, you deserve to float in the rich waters of your successes for a bit longer. Congrats!
🐟 PISCES (Feb 18 - Mar 19)
10 of Wands (rx): Lay those burdens down, baby. Lay them down because if you don't, you're fixin' to crash and burn... again! The Universe is letting you know that these aren't your burdens to carry and now is the time to release and begin the healing and integration process. It's ok to be ambitious and test the limits sometimes, but it's not ok to spread yourself so thin that you're jeopardizing your physical, energetic, and mental health. Let this be the season that you come out all the wiser, knowing what you can and can't take on. Learn to say no and start establishing some new boundaries that will keep you safe, healthy, and thriving!
And so it is… 🖤
