May is a lovely month, vibrating to Taurus, a Fixed Earth sign of the zodiac. The symbol for Taurus is the Bull, representing courage, tenacity, and fixity of purpose. The truth is, you can’t get a Taurus to do anything that they don’t want to do. Don’t waste your breath. Taurus ♉️ is ruled by Venus, the planet of love, creativity, charm, and beauty. It’s flower or essential oil is the rose or jasmine. The stones would be Rose Quartz, Angelite, Blue Chalcedony, or Mangano Calcite. Softness is the key.
This month is interesting, with 5/3 having the Moon moving into Taurus, preparing for the New Moon on 5/4. On the 3rd, the Moon conjuncts both Mercury and Uranus. Since Uranus is the higher octave of Mercury, this brings an opportunity to access the higher consciousness, the Third Eye and Crown Chakras. It’s a perfect time for intention work, especially since with the Taurus ♉️ energy, it has longevity. I would extend that across the third, fourth, and fifth. All excellent. Since Taurus represents the Earth Element, which is about what nurtures or nourishes us in Chinese Medicine, take some time to nurture your soul on this New Moon.
The 7th is intense, with aspects to Neptune and Jupiter reminding us not to overextend. 5/8 is fabulous, again, extremely high vibe. The Heart Chakra, Third Eye, and Crown Chakra are activated, bringing a higher vision, and a capacity to grow through grace. 5/9 continues that, but adds Pluto and Saturn into the mix, so be ready to release anything that does not grow your soul. It’s a time of shedding. Sometimes, that’s a good thing. People don’t grow like railroad tracks, at the same rate of speed. Free Will allows people to grow, or not grow. Avoiding codependency and enmeshment is important.
5/12 is Mother’s Day. The Moon in Virgo ♍️ is making several magical aspects. It’s a wonderful day to access the Divine Feminine energy of the universe, that Kwan Yin energy, the goddess of mercy and compassion. We are all Yin and Yang. This is a day to celebrate the Yin energy of the universe, receiving. Affirm that you are, in every moment, receiving all of the love, joy, beauty, and blessings that the universe has for you.
5/18 is the Full Moon, with the Sun 🌞 in Taurus ♉️, opposing the Moon 🌚 in Scorpio. ♏️. Excellent, excellent, excellent day. It’s a powerful manifesting day. Grab onto the energy of this one, and get ready to break through old patterns. Rock this, it’s amazing.
5/22 is very powerful, with the Moon 🌚 in Capricorn ♑️ conjunct to Pluto and Saturn again. Any change is possible.
This month is rich with astrological possibilities. It’s a month of renewal, gentle healing, being nurtured, and replenished. May it bring you all of the love and joy you deserve. Blessings, Reverend Judith Star-Medicine
