May Astro Babble ~ Your Personal Horoscope Included!
“Honor the past as your teacher, honor the present as your creation, and honor the future as your inspiration.” Crow, Medicine Cards
Happy May! The Astro landscape this month offers some much needed grounding and potential ease with planets in the earthy sign of Taurus. The Taurus energies encourage us to slow down, feel into our essential nature, and find a sense of celebration for the good stuff in life! Although the first part of the month starts with some intensity, as we continue to negotiate the intense dance between Pluto and Saturn, encouraging us to see what’s real and what needs to be transformed, by mid- month, you should feel like you’re able to fully regroup and recharge!
Your May Horoscope:
Aries: May is a time to look more deeply at your worth. This may range from your self-worth, to the value you put to your services in the world, and also around how you view money and security. The key lies in your relationship with what you value. Not just monetarily, but also in regards to deeper fulfillment. If you’re seeking more abundance (and aren’t we all?) align your energies with what brings you the most satisfaction. They go hand-in-hand. #Worthwhile
Taurus: With the New Moon in your sign (May 4th), and the Full Moon in your opposite sign (May 18th), the lunar energies are potent, influencing your personal power--how you wield it in the world and in your relationships. Lady Luna can be a tricky mistress, both illuminating your greatest assets, and also bringing light to any internal stuck-ness. Time to find a balance between the dark and the light, ultimately finding integration between the two. #MoonStruck
Gemini: This month may feel like you’re doing a cosmic tap-dance: a bit of shuffle and slide, with plenty of ball-changes in-between! Time to be light on your feet by being flexible and open to change. You may feel like you’re making this up as you go-- which is true--but all the better to be in the moment and accessible to spontaneous and unexpected happy happenings. A reminder, you don’t need to perform for others. You’re your best audience. #TwinkleToes
Cancer: Time to elevate your thinking, most specifically around your concepts about what is possible. Remember, perception is everything, and the more you are willing to expand your vision and trust your innate sense of bigger potentials, the more opportunities will come. In the process you may engage old “programing” that comes from your past—family and societal conditioning. Process, and then let go of the old story. It no longer defines you. #Visionary
Leo: Expect some internal conflict this month, as your stars have you negotiating some new and life changing truths. Namely, who’s the authentic you, and then, how do you express it in the world? Turn the conflict into an inner-dialogue, a conversation between you and your deepest self, and you may be surprised with what you come up with. When in doubt, take time to listen to internal promptings. Your intuitive voice is just waiting to be heard. #Listening
Virgo: I think, therefore, I am. No truer words for you this month, as your stars are highlighting your analytical process and how your thinking informs your personal and world view—and life experience. This is a time to focus on what’s really important, and let go of random distractions that don’t serve your greater goals. It’s easy to get so caught up in the mundane details, that you forget the bigger picture. Take care of business, but keep in mind your #BiggerPotentials
Libra: This is a time to dig deeper into to your perception of security. This applies to your financial security, and also—and this is where you dig deeper—to your greater, spiritual security. I don’t mean this in a religious way, more in the sense of your connection to Divine Source, however that works for you. Money is great, and indeed it makes our world go round, but at the end of the day, you may be feeling the desire for something of greater and lasting value. #LetsGetSpiritual
Scorpio: The Full Moon in your sign (May 18th) brings intensity to your deeper feelings and emotions, especially in regards getting your needs met. Nothing new, you may say, you’re used to emotional desire and intensity, so how to channel this potent energy in a new and meaningful way? Look to how you can be of service, to others and the world, that aligns with your true passions. This may come in different forms, but it needs to make your heart sing. #HeartSong
Sagittarius: Your stars bring a paradox between your deeper, inner life and your outer, “real” life. Ultimately, the two inform the other, but sometimes discerning the difference between your waking reality and your dreams and imaginings can feel like a cosmic riddle—what’s real and what’s not! Your dreamscape is potent now, so let it inform you on how to move forward. Listen to the promptings that come from the deeper places in your psyche. #DaydreamBeliever
Capricorn: With two major planetary players in your sign—Saturn and Pluto—in retrograde motion, you may be feeling a bit stymied about how to move forward. Instead of initiating new plans, take advantage of this period to do some long overdue housekeeping. What are the inner-workings and structures of your life that need shoring up? This is an excellent time to take care of business and put into place new structures that will serve you in the future. #Grounding
Aquarius: This month finds you negotiating a delicate balance between your career and your personal life. Both are important and need your attention. Communication is key. If something feels out-of-balance, don’t hesitate to speak up and express yourself. Your best investment now is in your own sense of well-being. If relationships and situations don’t align with what’s essential to your peace of mind, it’s time to set new boundaries. #PeaceOfMind
Pisces: It’s always groovy when your planets align with your essential being-ness. This the case in May, offering a reprieve from past stress and worries. There are sure to be a few bumps in the road, but you’re feeling more buoyant and capable to deal. So, as a way of clearing the air, perhaps a vacation is in order? You need time to regroup and integrate the last few months, so whether it’s a “stay-cation” or booking a ticket to your favorite beach, do it! #FeelingGroovy
