Tranquil energies are here to soothe and return us to balance

May you dissolve the habits that hold you back

The first third of 2019 was a roller coaster of energy! At times we took long, anxious climbs up steep hills, while in other moments we cruised at high speed through twists and turns that took our breath away but left us laughing with glee at the end. There were even a couple loop-the-loops in there for good measure. 

But roller coasters aren’t meant to be ridden for too long – our system needs a break! Luckily that’s what the month of May brings us: A nice, restful stretch of time to rejuvenate the body and let the heart rate come down. 

When you’ve been in a heightened state, either positive or negative, it takes mindfulness and patience to ground yourself and return to center. It’s common to get so used to navigating the chaos that when peace and order are restored it feels uncomfortable. When the nervous system is operating in survival mode and the body is flush with stress hormones, it’s up to you to remind yourself in a multitude of ways that you are safe to relax. Deep, conscious breathing is always a helpful choice, as is meditation, and connecting to Nature in whatever way feels the most aligned to you. 

Along with these mindful practices, courageous, grounded and protective Tiger’s Eye is ready to assist you on your journey toward a more peaceful existence.
This fierce warrior is like mirrored armor against negativity – it reflects all bad vibes back to their source so that you don’t absorb them. It also helps you focus your mind so that you can get clear on your own needs in your relationships to the needs of those around you. Tiger’s Eye encourages you to prioritize your self-care this month so that you can enjoy the rest of the Spring season from a place of tranquility and serenity.

Just because this is a month of restoration doesn’t mean that you can’t take some steps forward in your life situation. Let Tiger’s Eye aid you in a process of discernment. Where are you allowing your boundaries to be crossed, rationalizing harmful behavior, or getting in your own way? Where are you choosing momentary pleasure over lasting satisfaction in your career, environment, diet, or physical health? 

This month doesn’t call for dramatic action to overhaul your life, but it does give you a chance to create a plan of action to systematically dissolve habits that hold you back. Tiger’s Eye, with its vibration of integrity and sound judgment, will be your ally as you navigate the waters of truth and chart a new course this month.

 
AFFIRMATION OF THE MONTH
I am held safely by the earth below me.
I choose to surrender and receive the loving grace of the Universe.
I treat myself with infinite love and respect in all ways.

Planetary Overview for the month of
May '19

Whew! What a wild few months we’ve had! Thankfully May’s tranquil energies have arrived just in time to soothe our ragged nerves and return us to balance – as long as we receive them, that is.

If there was one danger to be aware of this month it is the resistance that can arise to the need for rest. Especially for all the go-getters out there, a chance to take a breather can feel more like a chore than a treat. You’re always ready to “rise to the occasion” of the moment, but this month the occasion isn’t another stressful fire to put out but a trip to the spa or a retreat to a glorious sanctuary. Can you handle so much blissful restoration?

Right away on the 4th we have a New Moon in Taurus. This pleasure-loving sign is all about the physical aspects of life and it wants its expression through luxurious nourishing of self. If you take a bath, let it be filled with flower petals and essential oils. Don’t just get a regular mani/pedi – get the spa package complete with paraffin wax and a sumptuous sea salt scrub. Buy that pair of shoes you’ve been eyeing for weeks. Cook yourself a meal fit for a Michelin starred restaurant. Drink the good wine. This New Moon is the time to indulge in whatever this world has to offer that makes you feel purely divine. 

While May is a month for peace and healing, that doesn’t mean it’s without its own bit of electricity. On the 18th of the month, we are gifted with a Full Moon in Scorpio. Whenever the moon is full in this powerful sign you can expect things to get a little spicy. Around this time, you may find certain irritable or annoying elements of your life heightened and right in your face to look at and you may want to take action against that which you don’t like

On Sunday, May 19th, we will be celebrating our Women’s full moon circle. Rooted in the wisdom teachings on awakening to your true nature, this special circle offers a guided meditation with healing energy support for deeper awakening, healing, thriving embodiment and creativity! With a burn ritual for release on this Scorpio full moon. 

The beauty of this Full Moon, however, is that it only asks that you witness what is arising. No need to fight, change, or disrupt the flow of your life – just observe, take note and move on. There will be a time to make adjustments, but for now simply watch both the circumstance and your emotional response to the circumstance. Balanced Tiger’s Eye is a great choice to have on hand during this time. This Scorpio Full Moon will provide the foundation for your transformation moving forward so long as you keep your eyes open and take good notes. 

The 21st of the month brings a shift out of earthy Taurus and into airy, loquacious Gemini. This communicative sign is ready to lighten us all up with its jovial nature. With three weeks of rest under our belt we will have plenty of energy to revel in the splendor of the season – which is exactly what Gemini wants for us!

Host a gathering of friends and family – outdoors if possible. Let laughter and joy permeate your environment in all ways. You may find that you are feeling more creative at this time. If so, it’s a great time to express yourself in a new way. What artistic medium have you always felt called to try but haven’t had the time for? Now is your chance to give it a shot! Who knows, you may find that it becomes your new passion. 

This month calls for a dissolution of the resistance that stops you from receiving. Surrender is the major theme here. This will be especially hard for those with A-type personalities or those who are more comfortable as caregiver than cared for. 

This Universe wants to surprise and delight you with a billion and one treasures that serve your happiness, be they small or large. Knocking at the door of your heart may be the thing you most need, but it cannot come in unless you invite it. Slow down, relax, and trust that through the positive attention you give yourself the Universe will provide you with more ease and grace than ever before. 

This year is full of emotion and potent energies. In the months to come there will be many frenetic and intense moments so treat yourself with kindness and grace this month. Care for yourself, respect yourself, and act with loving intention for your own wellbeing and you will be prepared to hop back on the roller coaster of life once again.
