As the wheel of the year turns, and the sun continues its' journey of ascension, we welcome in the rising day of the year and the beautiful mid-morning month of May.
All the planted seeds, all the new ideas, all the pace and planning of April are now ready to be incubated, to be cared for, to be nourished, to be inspired into gently growing. The pace and sometimes austere qualities of The Emperor have been replaced by the comfort, support and care of The Empress and the wise lessons given by The Hierophant. Aries fire and the pioneering ram are dampened, quietened, by the Taurus earthiness and the slow, steady bull.
May is the container of growth, the womb of the year. The incubator of projects or plans. A time to resist over-sharing of our ideas, over-committing, over-doing, and a care too around over-indulging.
This month is one of nourishment, of soaking in the nutrients of the earth and moving slowly, steadily, always aware of the depths of support around and within you. When we rush our tether can strain, we lose sight of what we are doing it all for, we forget to do our practice, neglect our self or our care and then in a sense of loss and overwhelm we can turn to other, often more unhealthy sources to nourish us through the over-burn. Perhaps it is alcohol, food, drugs, tv..
Slowing down, making time and space for practice and connection, nourishing ourselves and our ideas.. this will help us in growing in a way that is manageable, healthy, supportive, and will help us lessen our desire for unhealthy consumption, habits and patterns. Information too can be a source of ill-health for us, inspiring feelings of trauma, grief, fear and worry. Information and news is important, empathy and care is important, the fuel that inspires change is important.. but living our lives in a constant state of anxiety, fear or stress due to the news around us will impact our physical health, our energy - levels and our mental health. Be mindful of this. Consume in bitesize pieces, meditate with the information, creatively express, give your support and assistance, but be aware of how the sheer level of news and information is greater than it has ever been in history and for each individual to be privy to everything of suffering in the world can be an overwhelming and traumatic experience. Be mindful.
Throughout this month and every month, we will be putting out written content for all, and for our members/patrons we offer a Class on the astrology and tarot of each month to help you to understand the energies of each month and to work with them. We also offer an embodiment of the energies through a yoga practice and release a patron-only podcast/interview/video as an additional offering.
