MAY 1-7 2023 – COLLECTIVE COSMIC ENERGY
Destiny is at play, when the month of May kicks off with the second eclipse of 2023. Eclipses are cosmic phenomena that have long been known as game-changers, powerful portals for transformation, & fated wild cards that can shape our lives in unexpected ways.
As we enter May, we are still in the midst of the infamous Mercury Retrograde that began on April 21 and will continue until May 14. It’s important not to seek closure during this planetary haze & emotional rollercoaster.
Instead, embrace the mystery and allow yourself to be surprised. The themes of this backward motion are about innovating outdated ideas and adapting them to the exciting new age of Aquarius, AI, and all things possible.
Midweek, Venus & Jupiter will be at play, encouraging us to use our flexibility and creativity to make bold moves. Neptune will also join in the dance, elevating our imagination to new heights. However, we must remain grounded and not get lost in illusions when taking care of our everyday responsibilities.
Last month’s solar eclipse in Aries ignited our inner fire to take a bold step towards dramatic new beginnings. This warrior energy is still present, urging us to be fearless and pursue our dreams. Eclipses have the power to accelerate events, making it feel like a multi- episode television series condensed into a blockbuster. This week’s lunar eclipse on May 5 in the water sign Scorpio is a game-changer, bringing phoenix-like transformation and generational breakthroughs in society, and personal development, providing an opportunity to heal trauma and develop our psyche in new ways. Many things will happen behind the scenes and may only be revealed later. Expect the unexpected during this groundbreaking eclipse, as shocker Uranus opposes it.
We have all experienced toxic behaviour in some form and must urgently let go of old values and beliefs to transform ourselves and create from a fresh, firmer base.
Eclipses can have a lasting impact, and we may feel their effects for up to three months before and after, or even up to six months to a year, until all the changes fully manifest. Pay attention to the people who suddenly enter or exit your life during this time. Who gets eclipsed out?
We won’t fully grasp the exact news and happenings of the eclipse just yet. However, as Mercury turns direct on May 14 and reaches the critical degree of the eclipse on May 22, more news will likely emerge.
Finally, we wrap up this eventful week with love planet Venus moving into the waters of Cancer. Allow yourself to feel all the feels and act authentically from the heart. Venus will be aligning with Mars, bringing harmony between our wants & needs, creating a sweet transit for love & romance.
