an energy update for May 2022
This month we have 2 eclipses, the first is a gentle new moon of doing what is right for you and the second is a super intense blood moon loaded with possible triggers and provocations!
Try and keep things light, forget about getting too serious as playfulness and humour will create ease and reveal new possibilities.
heal your personality
Eclipse season is here, starting with a Taurus new moon, solar eclipse on April 30th /May 1st depending on your location. Eclipses are always a good opportunity to open a new door and close an old one.
Worn out personality traits are coming to an end and can be easily released. Close the door on negative traits that block you moving forward or opening your heart and just let them go, instruct them to leave and expect a shift.
Imagine your life without negativity and resistance and if you can’t then take a leap of faith and just see how your life would be without that stuff. Confidently release the rubbish with love and forgiveness and trust that you can live freely without it.
on the front foot
Get on the front foot with those things you haven’t ‘felt’ like doing but know you must do. You know the things I’m talking about.
The hardest part is starting but once you get over the dread you’ll want to keep going. Think of how satisfied you’ll feel when you’ve accomplished those things.
Apply yourself and stop waiting to be rewarded for things you haven’t done yet. Do what you must, reap the rewards and keep applying yourself. Take responsibility to get on the front foot of your growth.
let your imagination roam
May 9th/10th Mercury goes retrograde, as it does for about a month, three or four times a year.
Prepare for great insights and dreams, creative writing or playing with art could be fun and productive. Let your imagination roam but don’t forget about physical reality, basically don’t let yourself get too out there. Communication could get really colourful and interesting with unconventional concepts coming out of nowhere.
respect what you can’t control
The May 15th/16th blood moon total lunar eclipse in Scorpio is going to be IN-TENSE!!!
It could be a case of having to laugh or you’ll cry which might not be so bad, better to cry than lash out and create ghastly consequences.
The reason this full moon is so intense because we have sun in Taurus, opposite moon in Scorpio and they are in exact square with Saturn in Aquarius, and it's an eclipse. This is super potent fixed and stubborn energy.
Any power struggling will just create more karma, no good will come of it. The best way to find strength in this situation is to breathe, bend and let things be. The more compassionate and patient you can be at this time the more you will grow, strengthen and mature.
Stay calm and grounded, forget any ideas of having control over anything, and I mean anything. From trying to control people, to getting a lid off a jar, there is a way for things to go at this time and that needs to be respected.
Let this eclipse close the door on old karma, grievances, angry outbursts, blame, victim mindset, unrealistic expectations and forcing round pegs into square holes.
Avoid any kind of invasive medical procedures if possible. Not a time to try a drastic new haircut or colour either, things could go horribly wrong. Stay away from risk taking, heavy lifting, steep drops, scissors, knives and all things sharp and dangerous. Are you getting the idea?
Take the path of least resistance, let things be and let people do what they need to do. Avoid any confrontation, instead compromise, allow, accept, release, hand things over, laugh things off, stay safe and do what’s right.
If you feel anger rising, breathe and let it pass. If someone is driving slowly in front of you breathe and take in the scenery. If you feel overwhelmed and don’t know where to start, take a load off, go for a walk, get in the garden, meditate or hide out and keep to yourself until the clouds part again.
