It has been two weeks since Mercury, our planet of communication, finally started to communicate with us again along with the planet Mars. Mars is about the action we take and the progress we make, and it is back on the right path again making it much easier for us to navigate our way through life with more conviction. The last few months have been more difficult, moving slowly, with very little forward motion.
On Saturday, May 5th we have a Full Moon in the sign of Scorpio. If you follow the energy of the zodiac signs you should know this Full Moon is about releasing anything that we feel overly attached too, the things we obsess about that are not healthy. Now this is subjective which means we may need to call a close friend who will be honest and able tell us we are being overly obsessive about something. Don’t take this personally but use it to take some time to honestly look at what you are obsessed with and see what needs to change.
What do you need to let go of? This is perfect behavior for a Full Moon, releasing what no longer serves us. If you are not familiar with this ritual ,then email me for more information, I will happily share. One reason that it is so important to release during this Full Moon (it is important to release during every Full Moon) is that both the next New and Full Moons will be eclipses. An eclipse is a super-charged energy and we will want as much open space as possible to allow us to manifest as much as possible. This begins by first releasing what no longer serves us thus allowing us to free up our hands so we may receive.
Some other big news the first week of May is Mercury moving into the zodiac sign of Taurus. He will be in this sign for the remainder of May, reminding us that our words are powerful and each and every one of us has the power to change anything with one word.
Adding to this mix, from May 5th through the 17th, we have three planets that are connected. They are making a triangular shape in the solar system with us (the earth) in the middle. The planets involved in this triangle bring a wonderful energy to us, allowing us to communicate well and easily understand things that may normally go over our heads. We are more able to make those practical and down to earth changes that will impact our lives for the better. The details of these influences do depend on where these planets fall in your own personal horoscope but, overall, expect May to more helpful than any of the last two months have been.
On Sunday, May 13th (Mothers Day) the Sun and Jupiter will be in the same location so we will not be blessed by his presence in the evening sky anymore. It was lovely to see Venus and Jupiter together during March but now the Sun and Jupiter are in the same place in our solar system, at least from our perspective here on earth. What that means for us is that we feel overly abundant, generous, optimistic and enthusiastic about most things presently. The same day the Moon and Neptune are in the same location and Mercury and Mars are in a trine aspect. All of this indicates that we have a wonderful day ahead of us celebrating with Mom, lots of conversations, traveling, and for some of us, memories of those no longer with us.
Sunday, May 20th the New Moon is also a Solar Eclipse beginning at 7:47 p.m. This is in the sign of Gemini which means our words are even more powerful then I explained in the first paragraph. Pay attention and be very careful what you say, think and wish for during this eclipse as we will manifest very quickly no matter what. The eclipse, unfortunately, will not be visible here on the east coast. The Sun moved into Gemini (May 21) and we are in the last month of spring. Everything is moving much faster now. We can feel it and see it. Take advantage of this time of year to plant new seeds of opportunity for yourself.
The next eclipse is June 4th as we always have two in a row--the science behind how our solar system works! The eclipse on June 4th is a Full Moon in Sagittarius. After all, the new conversations and open communications that we have been having over the last month involves this Sagittarian Moon which is looking for the truth. I am hope revealing this ahead of time will assist you in preventing yourself from becoming overzealous and a little too talkative. If you may have stretched the truth a little in May, it is time to pay for it. With this glimpse ahead, avoid any white lies in May or you will pay in June.
