As they say, April showers bring May flowers. What were you planting back in April? Expect for the karmic scales to find their balance as we enter into a month ruled dually by Taurus and Gemini energy. We start May with Venusian energy that encourages us to commit, get comfortable, and indulge. However, the month will end with Mercurial Gemini energy that requires us to think on our feet and tap into our witty natures. You may need to make decisions that feel out of character before June arrives.
Mercury, the planet of communication and who orbits our sun the quickest, will also be in the fast-paced sign of Gemini, leaving us all feeling like we’re running on a triple shot of espresso from May 3 until we encounter Mercury retrograde on May 29. Don’t fret! Simply use the next few weeks wisely; finish up your big projects, sign any/all contracts, and make sure your passport and ID are up to date.
With the new moon in Taurus on May 11, ask yourself what (or who) you’re hoping to commit to. Set intentions for the moon cycle ahead, and get clear about long-term goals and investments you’re ready to pursue. We also have Jupiter, which encourages us to think bigger and expand, entering dreamy Pisces on May 13. Expect the unexpected in regards to your growth and attracting grand opportunities.
And remember how far you’ve come already. In January the theme was all about ascension. When you embrace learning from your past, you can start to embody your highest vibrational self. You asked yourself tough questions in order to make changes: Who do you want to be this year? What do you want your life to look like in the future?
February started off with Venus—the planet of love, sex, beauty, and money—entering into Aquarius, the sign of eccentricity and innovation. Creative juices were flowing, career paths were changing, and your love life may have started to feel a bit challenged.
March began fresh off of the year’s first Mercury retrograde. No matter your sign, March was about trying to fit in mindfulness practices to keep you from losing sight of your reality, your goals, or yourself as a whole. You are your best self when you’re able to put the lessons of your past into action.
We tried to use April for its clear energy. Mercury joined the sun in fiery and fast-paced Aries, inviting us to make quick and firm decisions around the way we spend our time and energy.
