Hello Beautiful Soul,
Can you hear that? It’s the sound of spring. I’m listening to the birds sing and crickets chirp outside my window. It reminds us all that this is a time of renewal, hope and rejuvenation. Some of the reasons this just so happens to be my favorite season.
As we awaken from the slumber and hibernation of winter I find it’s harder than usual to get moving again. Perhaps that is Mother Nature’s call to all of us right now. That the speed in which we were living previously was unsustainable. While we start to congregate again after the world’s epic “time out,” the Guides offer a warning: “Don’t go back to ‘normal.’ That wasn’t working for you.” They tell us to go back to bliss.
May is a call for the halcyon days of joy. Like a long awaited beach vacation we’re asked to soak in the sun from wherever we stand and drop into the present moment. Work will always be there waiting for us, but somewhere along the way we forgot how to LIVE.
So dip your toes in that pool of water, jump in the car on that last minute road trip and break out the dusty guitar. The awakening is like a slow, pink wave of magic rolling us all in the deep embrace of love. Open your heart to it all.
Taurus May Tarotscope
(Apr 20-May 20) – Ace of Pentacles
Blessings for your birthday from up above. The ace of pentacles is often the start of a new venture or enterprise which carries with it the love and protection of your Guides. As a way to honor this new beginning and welcome in the comforts of spring, it’s time to plant a garden. Even if you keep your garden in one pot inside your kitchen, it’s essential to get your hands dirty. Why, you ask? Psychological studies show that when we get our hands in the ground it boosts our serotonin levels. I’m not going to even pretend I understand the science, but metaphysically it makes sense. You are reconnecting with Mother Nature. You are coming home. Nurture your plot with love and care over the next few weeks. As you watch your tiny sprouts pop up out of the ground you’ll start to see other miracles pop up all around you.
Gemini (May 21-Jun 21) – Eight of Wands
Numerology attributes eights to accomplishments, mastery and action. This is the way of the eight of wands. An opportunity of good fortune has presented itself to you, however you’ve been burned before and you’re scared to take the leap. Do not hesitate dear Gemini or you might miss your chance! An exercise that might help you move forward courageously and without haste is a love letter. Break out your fanciest letterhead, a beautifully weighed pen and pour yourself a cup of tea. To whom will you pronounce your affections? To yourself of course! Take this small action of self-love and watch it soothe old wounds like a magical healing salve. Before you can accept your fate and call in all the things you deserve, you must first learn how to forgive, love and accept yourself fully. A difficult task, but seeing all the work you’ve already put in this shouldn’t be as hard you anticipated.
Cancer (Jun 22-July 23) – Two of Swords
When I pulled this card for you the words of Carole King rang in my ear, “When you’re down and troubled and you need some lovin’ care, and nothin’, nothin’ is goin’ right. Close your eyes and think of me and soon I will be there.” That is a message from the Guides this month dear Cancer. It seems as though you’ve been reaching out externally for internal validation and it’s got you down. It’s time to reconnect with your heart, your Higher Self and collective intelligence that binds us all in love. I encourage you to slow down this month and take a time out. Say “no” and say it often when asked to engage in activities with loved ones and friends. You need some serious time alone to devote yourself to your spiritual practices. While you’ve been conjuring spells for others and mending broken hearts you’ve forgotten to tend to yours.
Leo (Jul 24 – Aug 23) – Strength
It’s time to soothe the wild beast that rages within. You’ve been dealt some shitty cards lately and I can feel the resentments building. That is poison for your soul! It’s time to pause, drop into some deep meditation, and start to unpack what’s really happening here. I find the Universe drops challenges in my lap not to piss me off, but to force me into a new cycle of growth. What do your teachers have to offer you? Are you learning about compassion? Are you learning how to value yourself as the Queen or King you are? As a wise friend told me recently, “Repeat after me: I am capable. I am enough. I am a success. I am a bad bitch.” Wake up each morning for the next 30 days and speak this mantra as you check yourself out in the mirror. You’ll soon find that the rest of the bullshit just becomes white noise that you can barely hear.
Virgo (Aug 24-Sep 22) – King of Pentacles
Oooooh how does that feel Virgo? You are finally stepping into your power with a sense of confidence and a feeling of security that practically no one could shake. I often think of the King of Pentacles as the tarot’s ideal dad. He’s kind, loving and practical. He has created financial security and shares his riches freely. He doesn’t judge others and he certainly doesn’t care what car you drive. While this card often indicates financial freedom, be careful your ego doesn’t get the best of you. You are no better than the bum who sleeps on the sidewalk. You’ve simply been given a different set of circumstances. Count your blessings and count them twice. And be sure to tell the bum hello. Maybe you could give him a ride somewhere in that sweet ride of yours. His story might shock you. You might start to realize you’re not as different as you think.
Libra (Sep 23-Oct 22) – Justice
Been feeling like nothing is going your way Libra? Well all of that is about to change. The Justice card is here to restore balance and equilibrium to your world. You might have an ex or an old friend pop up out of the blue with a heartfelt apology. Or perhaps it’s you who feels the need to make amends. Or maybe, just maybe, someone you love passionately and deeply starts to recognize your significance. They look at you differently, this time with a sense of awe. Whatever the case this is a month of sitting back and letting the Universe take the wheel. You’re already very good at getting out of your own way so this should be a breeze! While you take time off from ‘figuring things out’ be sure to make time for sunsets. Couldn’t tell you why. The Guides are whispering in my ear today and they speak of magnificent beauty. Perhaps you can see yourself in its reflection.
Scorpio (Oct 23-Nov 22) – King of Cups
The King of Cups is the embodiment of emotional sobriety. Fair, just and kind, he is respected and revered by all in his kingdom. The world has felt abrasive and jagged lately. Who can you trust? Why are people letting you down? Have you ever thought that perhaps it’s YOU doing all the abandoning? Maybe it’s been easy to pick up on others’ misgivings so you can push them away. You like going it solo. Sweet friend, that sounds exhausting. This ‘going it alone’ comes to a screeching halt dear Scorpio as kindness becomes your credo. I want you to commit to one small act of kindness each and every day this month. It could be leaving flowers on a stranger’s doorstep, buying coffee for the person behind you in the drive-thru, sending an old friend a beautiful letter in the mail. Get creative and have fun. These actions should not be arduous.They are to help you find your way back to the Vortex where the flow of the Universe delights and you learn how to embrace yourself fully.
Sagittarius (Nov 23-Dec 20) – King of Swords
Sagittarius you hate the rules. They were meant for breaking right? Well what if YOU got to choose what the rules looked like. That is the energy of the King of Swords. You’re being placed in a position of authority where you get to make the decisions. And while we’re quick to think of our career trajectory when these terms arise, I want you to think bigger. What are the new rules for your life? How do you want to run the show moving forward? You’re leveling up in your awakening on this beautiful journey. You know that blaming others for your grievances will get you nowhere. You are responsible for your own happiness. Your assignment this month? Ponder these two questions long and hard: 1) How free do you want to be? 2) What are you willing to do to get there?
Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 20) – The Magician
Razzle dazzle Cap! The Magician brings out your softer, sweeter side who is a little bit more bubbly. Your earthly nature makes it easy for you to manifest, but this month you’re going to do it with a lil pizazz. Each morning as you arise and ask your Guides to accompany you through the day, be sure to ask them to sprinkle in heavy doses of fun. Many people don’t know that you have a wicked sense of humor and that takes center stage in the coming weeks. Laughter will be the melody which keeps you kicked into high gear. What will feel like play will actually be you tapping into high vibrational energy making everything you desire come to fruition. The only caution from the Guides this month? Get clear on what you’re calling into your life. You’ll want to be concise about your wish list (aka be careful what you wish for).
Aquarius (Jan 21-Feb 19) – Three of Wands
Oh Aquarius, you spiritual powerhouse, you. The three of wands indicates that you are on the precipice of something phenomenal. Trust your instinct and take the leap. It might feel like you’re falling, but actually you’ll be floating. You have what it takes to meet whatever lies ahead. And perhaps to get you revved up to do the damn thing maybe it’s about time you finished that vision board. Or if you prefer writing, how about some scripting. I want you to visualize what your life will look like 365 days from right now. Get as detailed as you want. Dream big dreams! However, the key to manifestation is to really be able to feel it in your bones. I highly recommend putting down things that feel out of your comfort zone, but still feel attainable. For example, I’d love to have a billion dollars in my bank account in a year, but I can’t BELIEVE that would happen. Maybe that’s just my money mindset bullshit in the way. However I could get down with a million (Hey Universe take note please). Whatever you put down, be true to you. The Universe is infinitely abundant and you can have whatever you want. Even a cool billion in the bank.
Pisces (Feb 20-Mar 20) – Two of Cups
A union based upon respect. That is what the Two of Cups has to offer! And while it often indicates romantic love, that isn’t always the case. Recently I saw an article where two women platonically ‘married’ as they determined they were soul sisters and wanted to make it official. Do you have a ride or die in your life right now? Is that spiritual connection missing? Start calling in your tribe. Make a list of ideals: what are their attributes? How do they show up in the world? What are their interests? And while you’re at it be sure to make a list of non-negotiables. For example, I’m in active recovery. While I have many friends who enjoy an alcoholic beverage or two, I’m not going to involve myself energetically with someone who has a serious drinking problem and doesn’t want to fix it. Last, but definitely not least, make sure you write down some ideals about how YOU show up in relationship. What do you have to offer? What do you want to give? I can’t wait to see who you invite in.
Aries (Mar 21-Apr 19) – The Sun
Growth, expansion, liberation are key parts of the sun’s siren song. “Glow baby glow,” it says. Get after that big beautiful life of yours! Aries you are such a powerful leader and moving ahead has never been an issue for you. However, you often can exude a steely exterior which can leave outsiders a bit confused or put off. As you bask in the sunshine let it warm up not only the beauty of your life, but how you welcome others into your world. This month as you enter into conversations with others, whether that be your partner or a bus driver, I want you to offer them some sincere kindness. Intentionally send them some love. If you have any type of road rage (Goddess knows I do) try pretending you’re a Carebear and shoot love with your supercharged heart to the idiot who just cut you off. Sounds silly and strange, but just try it. I’m excited to hear how your interactions have doubled down in pleasure and fun.
