Week 1

You may be in a space of just wanting to feel good and needing a bit of a break as we start the week off. Take care of your physical body and give your mind a rest. Sun oppose Jupiter is going to force you to cut cords, streamline your resources, and focus on your own needs before others. Sun trine Pluto will tap you into a new level of power while also allowing a different structure to operate from....after you've cleared, of course. By week end you may find your new assertion of power gets some pushback. Hold a higher ground. For Lightworkers, know that you're pretty much going to be "on" all month. The Sun will continually remind you of the toll your work takes on the body. Rest A LOT. Keep your nutrition high and quantity of food low for easiest assimilation of nutrients with the least drag on the physical form. Make sure to get your crystals out in the Sun and on the land by Saturday to pick up the new codes.

Week 2

This is going to be a powerful week! It will pack a punch. We have FOUR planets changing signs, a new moon triggering the full moon in Scorpio intensity of 2 weeks ago, and a Cosmic Stargate alignment event for the lightworkers to engage with. The predominance of Taurus energy will take its toll on your physical body as the influence of the planetary and cosmic energy have almost unmitigated access to you. You will need to rest more than normal, drink more water, send time in nature & with grounding crystals, and exercise to build strength in the body. We will be inundated basically until the Sun shifts into Gemini when we start to get a bit of reprieve. On a relationship level, everyone is going to be focused on holding their ground and may be more stubborn and short-fused than usual. Choose your battles wisely.

Week 3

OPPORTUNITIES: Both the Sun and Mars in air elements significantly lighten up the intense vibes from last week. We can see and think more clearly now as well as take advantage of new ideas that spark in our minds. The water element then becomes a central influence which can benefit our money, our health, self-esteem, and relationships. Use this deeply restorative and prosperous energy to make some practical headway on your goals!

OBSTACLES: Volatile emotions and arguments are a strong possibility this week, particularly if the past few weeks have been tough. Take care that you don't get too overwhelmed with everything on your plate. Remember: there is only ONE step you can take at a time. Focus on what that is and act there. Once that is completed then you move on to the next. Try not to take things personally. It's not about you. It never really is.

Week 4

Happy Full Moon in Sagittarius!  What a welcome way to close out May! It's been a doozy the past few weeks, right?! We get a boost of Air and Fire sign energy to lighten things up and bring in more fun. It won't get too wild but it just feels good. Venus is making everyone a bit more amorous so if you're single and looking, get out and socialize. Everyone will be flirty. And if you're in a committed partnership, then let this add some spice back into your union. Expect lots of ideas to start pouring in now that Mercury is returning to one of its homes signs. Just know that you won't be able to take action on these things yet. But that's ok because it gives you a roadmap of what's ahead if you so desire. Mercury has been on quite the journey over the past few months so please take advantage of what They reveal during Their transit through Gemini over the coming weeks. WRITE EVERYTHING DOWN. You'll thank me later!
