In March we discussed the planet Mars and its retrograde motion – which astrologically speaking tells us it’s a time for planning, designing and getting all our ducks in a row. This month, Mars, the planet of action, is ready to move forward again. Are you? Heading into May we are also under the powerful influence of a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Taurus the sign of creativity and manifestation. It’s definitely time to throw off the hibernation habits of winter and get going!
During May it’s important to do the necessary clutter clearing and releasing to get back to basics. Time to get serious about what we want to create and build in our lives. This might include examining not only the stuff in our lives but our attitudes as well. Are we playing offense or defense? A successful strategy includes a little of both, but we need to make sure we are not living our present moments based on past decisions. If a choice is still valid – it’s also a great time to reaffirm that commitment.
New Moon Solar Eclipses are harbingers of change. They often precipitate both endings and new beginnings. It’s time to do that spring cleaning in our homes, offices and in every area of our lives. It’s time to release old patterns, habits and ‘stuff’ that no longer reflects our current lifestyle or our future. In July, Jupiter, the planet of expansion, will make a bold move as it enters the dramatic sign of Leo for a year. It’s a call for each of us to step on stage with new levels of self-expression that reflect greater authenticity. Will you be ready?
This month we’ll notice an uptake in the energy (Venus in Aries is on fire!) as Mars moves into direct motion again and any sense of stagnation seems to be cleared away. Put away the excuses; the energy at the cosmic dance is moving and shaking!
