Happy Birthday, Taurus friends!! This month brings a massive amount of energy for you to use however you want! With the Sun lighting up your 1st house, and in your own sign, the awesome possibilities burn bright. This is a time for rebirth and you can maximize your new chapters by taking the time to go within and figure out what you really want. Birthday wishes are real and you get 10 of them! Write them down, say them out loud, and most importantly, FEEL them as if they have already come true. You can phrase them something like this: I am so grateful that my desire for …… has been fulfilled in a magical way! This method employs the energy of desire that is true to the transit and focuses on the fulfillment, not the lack of, which is the absolute key to manifestation. You can see more about this in my video, Making Wishes Come True Using Astrological Power Periods.
The 1st house that is highlighted for you now is all about what you put out into the world/how the world sees you. Are you doing things that match how you want to be received? If not, how can you change aspects of your life where there is a disconnect to create coherence between what you want to be seen as and how you are showing up.
Often the Sun’s movement through this house brings attention to you. It could throw you into the limelight bringing in recognition and/or an increase in awareness of you and your work or other projects.
This house also rules your physical body so getting into or back into a daily physical routine is imperative. Balancing mental activity with physical movement is an important way to open up to inspiration and keep yourself healthy and mentally and emotionally clear.
At the same time as daily movement (walking, yoga, tai chi, etc.) is helpful for focus and reaching goals. Complementary stillness of mind and body through meditation is helps to use your actions most efficiently.
Even something simple like 20 minutes of physical exercise and 5-10 minutes of daily meditation can do a world of wondrous good 🙂
If you have physical ailments, the Sun’s placement in the 1st house could bring new insights. Feelings not felt, expressed with spiritual accountability, and cleared, turn into physical pain in your body. Finding the balance between getting things out that you are feeling, without talking too much about the same thing over and over or participating in avoidance behaviors is your mission 🙂 Symptoms from the past may resurface for further attention.
Having a daily way to cleanse your emotional field from things you tend to try to ‘work away’ is critical for your happiness and health. I love Marriage of Spirit by Leslie Temple Thurston exercises in Section 2 of the book for this (see below).
I also really love barefoot walking (which is also amazing for detoxifying) or holding your third eye and hands up on a tree (in colder weather that isn’t conducive to being barefoot) to help clear your field and balance your energy field. You will be surprised at the wonders this simple practice could bring when done consistently. The Earth frequency is very balancing to the human energy field and has been mitigated in more modern times because of the plastic and rubber shoe bottoms which block the energy from permeating the energy field in deeper ways.
Getting back to focusing on your breath will be another big piece for your best, happiest, and healthiest life 🙂
May 2022 brings us back into the internal and retrospective energies of Mercury retrograde. All of May and the first half of June are covered in this fog that can bring confusion, miscommunications, and changes to plan, but can also bring in high creativity, clearing up unfinished business and increase the chance of last minute magic.
While you will be drawn to act this month, the best actions are ones that focus on the short-term, or are low stakes, experimental, and flexible.
ECLIPSE SEASON IS STILL HERE, which is a several month period where negative karmic patterns can clear quickly and your wildest dreams can manifest, but to open the space for the new, some big goodbyes may occur.
April 30 brings a solar eclipse at 10° of Taurus and May 16 brings a lunar eclipse at 25° of Scorpio. The Taurus/Scorpio eclipse cycle started at the end of 2021 and its influence runs through the end of 2023. See my Eclipses in Taurus video to see how you may see it manifest and see my Eclipse in Scorpio video for info on what you may see from this one.
Continued strong Aries energies bring zest, decisive action, bold decisions, and inspiration. The Aries energies can also bring aggression and arguments so tune and and pick your battles wisely.
Taurus influences bring motivation to get things done, get organized, and take care of things that have been bogging you down. It is a time when much can be accomplished in a short amount of time and it is good to take advantage of the powers of focus (especially earlier in the month) as they will soon give way to the distractedness and extra busy-ness of Gemini.
Gemini energies bring the desire and means to be mobile and connect with others. Travel, writing and other expression, and communication with others will be prolific. You will feel as if you are spinning in a whirlwind and this continues through most of June.
Jupiter Conjunct Neptune in Pisces is a very rare transit that influences from March through May with the strongest influence in April. The last time these planets got together in this sign was 1856! See my detailed video to understand the potentials of the connection.
Jupiter Sextile Pluto is also influencing from April – June with its strongest potentials May 1-5. Check out my detailed video to understand this rare connection.
