May will be one of the most significant months of 2021. The overall theme will be flavored by a
lunar eclipse and Jupiter shifting signs. May brings in a really powerful Blood Moon Eclipse,
and the shift of Jupiter into Pisces. Jupiter is the planet of abundance and expansion, and it
meets up in the sky with the watery, intuitive sign of Pisces. This encounter is the first time in
twelve years. This will be an amazing time for connecting to others. You will feel that you will
have an innate understanding of people that will allow you to sense their feelings without the
need for words!
Eclipses can often be intense and are sometimes known as drama queens. They bring about
massive shake ups, sudden endings and surprises. For some, this can be felt as disruption to
our lives. Let’s explore “what is an eclipse.” The moon moves across an elliptical that is
constantly rotating around the zodiac. The highest and lowest of these points are the lunar
nodes (North and South). The nodes are often referred to as the Nodes of Fate and they
symbolize our past (south node) and future (north node). The North Node represents our path
for this lifetime… our karma. Eclipses activate the nodes in our chart, essentially illuminating
our path and destiny.
On Wednesday, May 26th we will have a total lunar eclipse in the sign of Sagittarius. This is
shifting our methods/ideas of communication (Gemini) and learning to shift our thinking and
finding ways to connect with others (foreign people and places) farther away. Sagittarius sees
the big picture. The final eclipse will be on Saturday, December 4, 2021. I will have an entire
post dedicated to this later in the month.
While Eclipses can be potent, they do help us to provide us with the opportunity to level up and
move forward on our path. Whatever is in our life that is not growing or for our highest
good…falls away. As hard as it may be, this is always a catalyst for our soul growth, even if it
doesn’t feel like it at the time.
Jupiter, the largest planet in our solar system, moving into Pisces this month is also a huge shift.
Jupiter represents abundance and can shine a light, expanding our gifts and talents. In fact, if
you are a Pisces Sun or Pisces Rising this is considered a very lucky omen for you! If you have
either your Sun or Rising in a water sign, you will also benefit greatly from this energy.
On Monday, May 3rd
, Mercury the planet of communication and travel enters its ruling sign of
Gemini. This a really harmonious energy because Mercury loves to be in its home sign of
Gemini. At this time all forms of our communication should flow effortlessly with ease and
grace. The planet of Mercury will go retrograde later in the month….therefore, I am
encouraging you to do your best to make headway now on any new projects that you wish to
get off the ground or on any challenging conversations that need to be had with partners
and/or significant others.
On Wednesday, May 5, 2021 is a number 5 year in numerology, making the 5th day of the 5th
month extra special! 555 is a magical numerology code and it is an angel number that
represents creativity and finding your joy. In Tarot, 5 is also a sign of change, and that your life
is getting ready to elevate to that next level. Take this opportunity to use the energies of this
day to enhance your creativity and to welcome any new inspirations or changes that follow.
On Saturday, May 8th, The planet of Venus will move into the air sign of Gemini. Gemini likes all
types of communication from…. The spoken word, to email, text, phone and letters etc. How
we communicate and things shared will be favored at this time. Take this opportunity to catch
up with friends, loved ones and coworkers!
On Tuesday, May 11th, we will have the Taurus New Moon. This time will bring some powerful
energies and get us ready for Eclipse Season! Taurus is a fixed earth sign. It governs love,
beauty, money and things we value. The energy of this New Moon feels very grounded and
stable. Think of the motto, “work hard, play hard.” This may spotlight all new activities. They
will be grounded and meant to last over time…created with love!
