It’s May– we’re a third of the way through the year. Please, be like spring– be fully engaged in your life and do whatever it takes to acknowledge and celebrate yourself.
Mercury will be retrograde from May 29th to June 22nd. Since Mercury rules communication, transportation, and contracts, when it’s retrograde, all manner of mistakes and misunderstandings can occur. If you can, please hold off on buying or leasing any big ticket items. It’s also a good idea to triple check any and all plans you make. This is an excellent time for introspection and research, though. Those things that are usually hidden from view, show themselves more easily during a Mercury Retrograde period. Wait until Mercury goes direct before making any big decisions.
And no matter what’s happening in the cosmos– down here on planet Earth, especially in the U.S., there is still great work to be done. Now is the time to make sure that the freedoms we’ve worked so hard to keep are supported by our actions– volunteer to help keep voting rights accessible to everyone. At last count, Republican politicians in over 40 states are actively working to pass laws or have already passed laws that will make voting impossible for people in many key states. Let’s all actively participate in preventing our world from being force marched into the dark ages!
For all of us:
“I love you, my sister and brother, whoever you are– whether you worship in your church, kneel in your temple or pray in your mosque. You and I are all children of one faith, for the diverse paths of religion are fingers of the loving hand of one Supreme Being, a hand extended to all, offering completeness of spirit to all, eager to receive all.” Khalil Gibran
And for now and forever:
“Attitude is a choice. Happiness is a choice. Optimism is a choice. Kindness is a choice. Giving is a choice. Respect is a choice. Whatever choice you make makes you. Choose wisely.” Roy T. Bennett
THE EMPEROR (March 21 – April 20) Please avoid dwelling on the ‘what ifs’ of a situation. Now is the time for you to engage in the art of pleasant persistence. The clarity and confirmation you’re looking for will come after the dust is settled. Even though you can’t see it yet, everything will turn out fine.
THE EMPRESS (April 21 – May 20) That aspect of yourself that doesn’t like change is very uncomfortable now. An era has come to an end and you don’t trust letting go of the past in order to embrace the newness of the present and the future. Please don’t think that if you deny the obvious long enough, it’ll go away. You must put aside your reluctance and move toward what you know is the future. The discomfort of accepting the new is temporary, so commit to going with the inevitable.
THE LOVERS (May 21 – June 20) You love a strong challenge, which is good, because right now, challenge of one sort or another is all around you. Remember to use that natural cleverness of yours and you’ll be able to work towards resolution as you overcome those pesky challenges. You’re not alone in this; others who share your vision will step up and assist you. And lest we forget, Mercury, your ruling planet, will go retrograde on May 29th, use the time to reflect on your goals and create a strategy that you can use to bring your goals to successful completion once Mercury goes direct on June 22nd.
THE CHARIOT (June 21 – July 20) Study the quotes of the great philosopher, humanitarian, and mathematician, Albert Einstein. Read his life story, too. His heart, wisdom, and ability to explain and apply practical concepts to what only he could see are the guides you need to break through into a new phase.
THE SUN (July 21 – August 22) Being indecisive is a result of being afraid to take a stand because you’re afraid that you may be wrong or unpopular. We’re all afraid at many points in life. It’s part of the human experience. Follow your strong heart and gift of natural courage– they’ll lead you to make the moves you know are right.
THE HERMIT (August 23 – September 22) This is a good time for self-reflection. Use the first twenty-nine days of this month to get your ducks in a row. Mercury, your ruling planet, will go retrograde on May 29th, effectively throwing a monkey wrench into most of your plans. Use the three weeks of enforced ‘down time’ to reflect on your goals and create a strategy that you can use to bring your goals to successful completion once Mercury goes direct on June 22nd.
JUSTICE (September 23 – October 22) What are you yearning for these days? You’re in a very magnetic space now. So many new opportunities are coming your way now. Take advantage of this magical time and indulge those yearnings. Allow yourself to be amazed as you sample the largesse that the Universe is presenting to you.
THE MAGICIAN (October 23 – November 21) As wild as it may seem, it’s time for you to just chill. You’ve been expending a lot of energy and you need to take time to recharge. Enjoy the beautiful days of spring by simply just being. As you observe life and store up your energy for the next few weeks, you’ll easily come to realizations that previously eluded you.
THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE (November 22 – December 21) Be daring and exercise emotional courage. A lot of old thoughts, beliefs, and feelings will be coming up for you. Look them in the eyes and free yourself from their tyranny by proclaiming on every level that the past is in the past. Acknowledge that you have the right and the responsibility to live your life out loud and then– do it!
THE WORLD (December 22 – January 19) You’re currently enrolled in a course called, Major Transformation. The energies of change, transformation, and releasing the old to make way for the new are your current study partners. It’s best to cooperate with this unstoppable force– that way you’ll lead the charge and march triumphantly into a future whose time has come. You’re not alone in this, though, Divine Energy is guiding you.
THE STAR (January 20 – February 19) Wow! Things aren’t dull these days are they? You’re now ready and able to call the tune you like, pick the partners you want, and dance the dances that step to your rhythm. Be vigilant and make note of what you want to do, who you want to meet, and where you want to go during this prolific time. This is your parade, your party– by all means, have a blast!
THE MOON (February 20 – March 20) Remember the old saying, “You’re known by the company you keep?” Well, it’s time for you to choose company that will respect and honor you. Changing from the old habit of accepting what’s put in front of you to establishing the new habit of consciously choosing who and what deserves to be in your presence is going to be pretty wild for a while. You’ll like the results and get the hang of it pretty quickly, though.
