MAY 2019

April showers bring May flowers, and the bright-colored visuals of the springtime are nothing short of wonderful. Can you feel that? The sensuality of Taurus season is alive and breathing, so make sure to stop and smell the roses. Aries season kicked off during the spring equinox, which served as a symbol of brand-new life, but Taurus season is when the seeds we planted begin to take root, and the energy of spring reaches full bloom. This is fertile month for all of us, both physically and spiritually. With the sun beaming through slow-moving Taurus for the majority of May, there’s an innate desire to just be, because in the end, there’s nothing more extraordinary than being present, and indulging in every moment. That is the very essence of this fixed earth sign. Although, given that Taurus’ planetary ruler Venus is currently traveling through warrior-like Aries, we probably won’t recognize its earthy influence until at least mid month, when Venus slides into Taurus. In the meantime, we will likely experience a fiery impulse to fuel our desires, but even then, it’s important to stay grounded. Taurus is a symbol of abundance, earth, and form; Scorpio, its polar opposite, is a representation of death, transformation, and the underworld. As above so below. In case you weren’t aware, Taurus and Scorpio are very much connected, and while the sun (Taurus) sheds light on some of our deepest desires, (Scorpio) this astrological season is asking us to consider whether or not we are prepared to manifest the abundance we crave.

Uranus, planet of revolution and unexpected change, first entered Taurus back in March, and with the sun currently traveling through the same sign, we are now gaining more clarity on the changes headed our way. This is a massive shift, and the beginning of a new world. Taurus is a representation of values, practicality, security, comfort, and sensual pleasures, and during this this seven-to eight-year period, we will likely see a revolution in all things related to financial income, and currency in general. What do your values consist of? Do your current surroundings measure up to your self-worth? Are you honoring your mind and body? A new moon in Taurus will withdraw into the night on Saturday, May 4, bringing stability to our inner world, while blessing us with a clean slate from the heavens. With Taurus’ ruling planet Venus in Aries, there’s an impulsive desire to move forward, but a trine to Saturn retrograde, Pluto retrograde, and the South Node in Capricorn, reminds us to consider our long-term goals before making any important decisions. This energy is asking that we reflect on our previously-set structures, along with the strengths we’ve acquired throughout the years. All in all, this earthy lunation is providing us with the necessary tools to obtain the abundance we deserve. With that said, I leave you with a quote by Wayne Dyer: “Within all of us is a divine capacity to manifest and attract all that we need and desire.”
