Coming into May… This year is definitely a year for change, growth and transformation as we get closer and closer to the powerful Ascension energies of 2020. We are currently under the influence of three planetary and one asteroid/dwarf planet’s Retrogrades. The big theme of this energetic combination is to slow down and go within; whether to care for yourself, expand yourself, transform yourself or take another look at your focal points and goals. We are still moving along with the changes brought by Uranus moving into Taurus in March that will be affecting us for the next seven years. Change comes as a sector of our lives opens to us that we didn’t have access to or even know existed! Other than these current influences, and the New and Full Moons this month May remains relatively free from any large impactful Astrological events, and with Mercury safely out of Retrograde it’s a perfect month for communication as long as you speak your TRUTH!
We are still under the influences of 3 Retrograde Planets and an Asteroid!
Ceres: April 9 (Sagittarius)- July 17 (Sagittarius)
Ceres Retrograde: Self-care is the theme: Healing, Detoxing/Releasing, Energizing, Strengthening, Integrating. Utilize this retrograde for establishing an inner dialogue with yourself. Ask daily what do you need to feel your best? What inner and outside support and nourishment is needed for your mental body? Spiritual Body? Physical Body? Emotional Body? This entire cycle highlights the need for our inner nurturer and any work to be done with our self-parenting tools. Re-establish eating for health and wellness – asking your body what it needs for optimal function. It will tell you what is not serving it through inflammation, digestion issues, weight fluctuations etc…
Jupiter: April 10 (Sagittarius)- Aug 11 2019 (Scorpio)
Jupiter Retrograde: This is an excellent time to put your plans for travel and education into action. Is there a course, seminar or training that appeals to you? Is it something that will expand your view of the world, self, or true purpose? Do not overlook what seems insignificant.
Pluto: April 24 (Capricorn)- October 3 2019 (Capricorn)
Pluto Retrograde: This is a mighty and powerful time to discover anything that has been hidden or obscured from you. Any type of meditation, psychic reading, shamanic work, psychological introspection or research will yield results and could produce a mind-blowing epiphanies.
Saturn: April 29 (Capricorn)- September 18 2019 (Capricorn)
Especially from April 27-May 3 Revisit your long term goals and bring out your vision board, your journal, or anything that will help you focus your energy on your bigger picture. Remember a target/goal is just something to aim at but you do need to aim at SOMETHING! This is a great time to clean up your intentions, manifestations and make sure they are true and accurate.
New Moon Taurus May 4
This is a really gentle and dreamy New Moon. Indulge your physical senses! Schedule some pampering, have a day to yourself or share it with those who bring out the best in you. A good theme for this moon is: Physicality=Spirituality.
Full Moon Scorpio May 18
Full Moon in Scorpio is typically understood as a one of the most intense of the year purely because Scorpio is the sign of transformation and powers of healing. Take this lunar opportunity to lighten up your energy body, and to release resistance to trusting in the Universe and the Divine plan.
Follow through on the guidance that arises, rather than fighting or struggling to know which way to turn. Release the urge to force conclusions just to make yourself feel like you are doing something.
When you surrender and trust in the process, problems can be resolved more easily and permanently.
