Monthly Forecast For May

Art by Josephine Wall

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

Monthly Forecast For April

Aries is a Cardinal Fire sign of the zodiac often signified by the Ram. Aries people are strong-willed, enthusiastic, passionate about life, energetic, and fun to be around. The Sun is moving through Aries this month, so let’s take a look at what’s in store.

The month starts out with an exquisite day on 4/2, with the Moon in Pisces ♓️ forming three conjunctions in a row, first to Venus, then to Mercury, and lastly, to Neptune, all in Pisces. This is a gift. Neptune, at it’s highest expression, represents Divine Love. Venus represents love, charm, creativity, and happiness. Combine those two, and you have the opportunity for a truly mystical experience. Add in Mercury, the planet of communication, and the mind, you then have the opportunity to connect the heart and mind, expressing yourself from love. ( Diffusing Rose essential oil, or meditating with Rose Quartz would enhance this). Focus on receiving grace and love, while radiating out love to the world.

April 3rd and 4th are also nice, leading up to the New Moon in Aries ♈️ on 4/5. Both the Sun and Moon are at 15 degrees of Aries. This will be a very intense New Moon, due to Pluto and Saturn being squared by it, in Capricorn ♑️. This is a deeply alchemical process, accessing Root Chakra fears that need to be released. Work with the Fire Element to burn through it. Refuse to be held hostage by old trauma. Refer back to the realizations from the aspects on the second, where you tapped into the perfect love of the universe. Remember, fear is not a thing. It’s an ABSENCE of a thing. It’s an absence of faith, in oneself and in Source. It’s an absence of cosmic truth. It’s buying into a lie, or error consciousness. Use the Aries Ram energy to push through it, confronting it. Use the fire. 🔥🔥🔥. Burn, baby, burn. Become the Phoenix. Rise.

4/6 is good, with the Moon 🌙 conjunct to Uranus in Taurus ♉️. New ideas and possibilities. 4/7 is fabulous, with the Moon in Taurus making several lovely aspects.

Let’s look at 4/10. Wow. Another intense, interesting day. Here, I think we’re going to see some outright lying, spin doctoring, and damage control on the news. Don’t believe everything you see, deceit appears to be the order of the day. On a personal level, try to avoid over-extending, or over-giving, at your own expense. Lay low, if possible.

4/12 is a day of potential liberation. The Moon in Cancer ♋️ pushes up against a very frozen resistance to change, with Pluto and Saturn again, this time as an opposition instead of a square, and utilizing Water 💦 instead of Fire. Water represents faith and trust. This is an aspect of letting go. Not from a place of giving up, but rather, from a place of acceptance of what is. Of where someone stands in consciousness, and their unwillingness to change. Let go. Move forward.

Palm Sunday, 4/14, is a day of benediction. There is a Grand Trine in Fire, 🔥, with the Sun in Aries ♈️ trining the Moon in Leo ♌️, both trining Jupiter in Sagittarius ♐️. Jupiter represents optimism, faith, and Sacred Law. This is another great day for manifesting your dreams, your vision, your hopes. Work from your Heart Chakra. The Heart and Pericardium are a part of the Fire Element. Be the light of the world. Illuminate everyone around you.

The Full Moon on the 19th also opposes Uranus, the planet of unexpected changes. Expect the unexpected, and go with the flow.

The Sun enters Taurus ♉️ on the 20th, and the Moon makes a few nice aspects, so we have a breather. Easter Sunday on 4/21 is lovely.

April is going to be a busy month, with some powerful opportunities for growth and change. It will be interesting to see how the Race Mind handles that.

As we move into spring, with the return of the flowers, the leaves, with the snow up here in the mountains finally starting to melt, embrace all of the beautiful possibilities that the universe has for you. Open yourself to receive. Become the Fire, generating light and love for the world. May April bring you beauty, everywhere you look. Be well, my friends. Happy birthday, Aries ♈️ people. Light it up!  Blessings, Judith

Holding Your Vision

This week I bought one of the most powerful stones I’ve ever experienced. It had been offered to me three years ago at a show, and again at another show after that. I passed on it for a number of reasons, none of which turned out to be the real reason I didn’t buy it: it was meant to be here, and I wasn’t ready for it. We know that stones are living beings, the oldest souls on the planet. This sphere is 102 pounds, Dumortierite, ( blue Quartz), from Brazil. Dumortierite is fairly rare, and is a Third Eye and Crown Chakra Stone. Dr. Yuen teaches that it brings peace and serenity. Others talk about it giving deeper insights into the self, strengthening psychic abilities, and facilitating downloads of data from other dimensions.

This being came to me in the Dreamtime last week, telling me it was time. I called to see if it was still available. It was. As soon as I committed to buy it, my whole body began to shake. I could feel it bonding with me, moving energy that had been blocked, and it wasn’t even here yet! It arrived on Monday. I have no words for what this is. One of my spiritual sisters was here yesterday, and she sat in front of it. Her experience was life-altering. She was given answers about her soul’s journey that had eluded her her whole life.

The Third Eye Chakra is the Chakra of visions, of psychic perceptions, of shamanic journeying. One needs to have the courage and willingness to see the truth for this Chakra to be activated. Here is where we can create realities we want to manifest. The Throat Chakra is where we “ speak the Word” to create. The Third Eye is even more powerful. Here, we envision what we need, which ALREADY EXISTS in the universe. As we envision it, we attune ourselves to its vibration, drawing it in to our reality. Here, we can envision ourselves as we truly are, eternal souls free of the ego construct, free of judgments that have been placed upon us by the culture or people in our lives. We can see our own divinity.

When we live from a place of empowerment, we choose how we want to see the world. Do we want to succumb to fear, our own or others, or the fear of the Race Mind, or do we choose to live from magic and miracles? Do we want to focus on the negative, or to use our spirituality to change it?

Setting your intention and your vision for your life, and for the planet, takes fierce discipline. First, decide that you have the courage and the willingness to see whatever you need to see about your life or the present moment that may need to be changed. There is never anything to fear. Fear is the absence of faith, and the absence of truth. Trust your own heart and inner guidance. Open your vision to a vision of yourself as perfect, fulfilled, loving, happy, joyful. See all old trauma and blockages removed,  streaming away from you, returning to the nothingness from whence they came. As you see this, FEEL it. Feel the love of the universe filling you. Then, expand that out to include the planet and all beings. See harmony being created. See peace and justice being restored. Feel it. Trust your vision. Hold your vision of a higher truth prevailing over fear and greed.

For us to manifest what we need, learning to hold our vision is essential. Getting sucked into the undertow of fear that exists now serves none. A warrior refuses to enable fear. Fear is a drug. It is addictive. It is used by the dark to manipulate humanity. If you can make people afraid, you can convince them to do terrible things.

The antidote to fear is love. If we can inspire and empower others, we can change outcomes. The Third Eye Chakra is all-seeing. It is all-knowing. It is the Chakra of the mystic, of the visionary, of the Shaman, the Seer. To truly change the world, we need to hold the vision of how we want it to be. Make your vision of the world one of the Garden of Eden. See what could be, both for yourself and others. And make it so. I know this powerful being has come into my guardianship to help facilitate that. A number of us will be working with it. It is a Master Teacher.

May all of our visions of love, peace, and  justice for all come to pass. Vision the world you want, and hold that vision. Blessings, Judith
