What cosmic influences the Cosmos has on the menu for us in May and how to make the best use of the energies available.
Themes for May
If you have found the last couple of months something of an uphill struggle to negotiate energetically take heart, you are in good company and there is change on the way. Looking ahead the energies of May have a decidedly more flowing, joyful feel to them with plenty of creative opportunity available.
Due to the rather ‘sticky’ inwardly focussed energy that we have experienced during April the beginning of the new astrological year has felt unusually muted and less forward moving than is often the case. The energy flow during May will help to redress this by providing us with a sense of freedom and the feeling of a new start which should come as a welcome relief to us all.
May is always a month which brings with it many uplifting spiritual opportunities. The first three full moon festivals of the astrological year, those in Aries, Taurus and Gemini are particularly important energetic gateways through which potent spiritual energies pour onto the Earth each year.
The full moon celebration of the Wesak festival, this year on May 10th, is the high point of this inflow of powerful spiritual illumination. On this full moon the Buddha, the expression of the Wisdom of God, joins forces with the Christ, the expression of the Love of God, to pour forth the blessings of the second Ray of Love and Wisdom in a ceremony that takes place on the etheric planes over the Wesak Valley in Tibet. Each year this potent spiritual offering is made available to all of us according to our capacity to absorb and assimilate what is so lovingly poured forth.
May is also the month in which Mother Mary is particularly available to us on the inner planes for healing, blessings and guidance. Set the intention to visit her Temple on the inner planes before you go to sleep at night to take full advantage of this wonderful opportunity.
Magic and mysticism is particularly in the air towards the latter part of the month so take some time out to go within, sort your priorities and connect with your intuition and inner guidance for inspiration for the next part of your journey.
The Influence of Taurus
The sun moved into Taurus on April 20th beginning a month-long period during which it will act as a powerful magnifier for the energies flowing into the Earth from the constellation of Taurus.
In western astrology, the earthy feminine energies of Taurus are represented by the sign of the bull. They bring forward the principle of illumination and offer the potential to see beyond the illusions of time and space. Taurean energy is passionate, sensual, energy that contains within it a desire to experience beauty, abundance and love. We can experience this desire from differing levels of vibration ranging from exclusive devotion to earth bound pleasure all the way through to a passionate desire to be the channel for Divine Will in action, depending upon our orientation in life.
In the current energy flow, with the focus so much on expansion of consciousness we are likely to find ourselves engaged in refining our abilities ‘to be in the world but not of the world’ this month with a view to ensuring that the power of our desire nature is used to contribute to the anchoring of more truth and light onto the Earth.
