Hello lovely ones and welcome to May 2017!
In May the cosmos offers a muddled, yet magical mix of energies.
The retrograde theme continues with Mercury in the final stages of his retrograde, Venus dancing through her post retrograde shadow, and Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto continuing their annual retrogrades.
Despite the retro backdrop this month ought to have a noticeably less cosmic clustering feel, and is laden with opportunities for magic and miracles.
With both Mercury (our minds, communication, travel, contracts) and Venus (love, abundance, balance, socializing, peace) retracing their steps through the zodiac, expect matters which occurred during these retrogrades to come back under the cosmic spotlight.
In some cases situations will unravel, in others they will come to fruition.
Either way there will be an element of closure or completion, and magic.
Sometimes our blessings and gifts from the universe are obvious and immediate.
Sometimes they are hidden and take time to reveal themselves and manifest on the physical plane.
Either way, our consciousness determines what we experience.
As the saying goes, those who do not believe in magic will never find it.
Soulstrology says that regardless of how things may appear, this month we must first trust that there is magic amidst any mayhem, in order to tap into the miracles which are unfolding (even if we do not receive them right away).
Life can be tricky. It is full of ups and downs, curve balls and detours.
The only think we can control is our consciousness, which determines our reaction, which in turn determines our experience which determines our fate.
Choose to believe in magic and you will see miracles, this month and beyond.
I will write detailed blogs on the new and full moons.
In the meantime below are the key cosmic dates for your diary.
May 3rd: Mercury stations direct at 24 degrees of Aries (*note Mercury is often at his most mischievous when he stations retrograde and/or direct and the days just before or after!*)
May 9th: Sun in Taurus trines Pluto in Capricorn (positive, powerful aspect)
May 10th: Full Moon in Scorpio (will post detailed blog on this)
May 11th: Mars in Gemini square Neptune in Pisces (powerful, transformative aspect)
