April showers (or retrogrades), bring May flowers… RIGHT!?!?! May is rarely a quiet month. Gardeners and outdoor workers go into overdrive; weddings and graduations multiply like rabbits, endings leading to new beginnings abound. In recognition of this, the cosmos is accordingly calm this May, acknowledging that our plates are FULL. There is more than enough keeping us occupied without excess planetary tricks. BUT… there is still a lot going on…
With the eclipses done and over, and the close of another chapter of our lives, there is now a big, often forceful release of who we are and who we want to be.“Life is a labor pain. We are giving birth to ourselves.” With all of the chaos and turmoil in the world right now, we are granted one true gift of cosmic grace. All of the planets are direct motion during February. This greatly aids our push forward with whatever we hope to accomplish. Use this uncomplicated energy to your best advantage, especially as March will not be as smooth.
