Happy May Day! Tradition encourages us to celebrate the new season, the warmer weather, and all of the finer things in life. It is no accident that this joyful day falls under the reign of the Sun in Taurus. Taurus is the sign of wealth and possessions and it wants us to have the things in life that will bring us the most joy. Taurus encourages us to acquire possessions and experiences and to truly live in the moment. Make it a priority for yourself to get out there and enjoy the world of the here and now! Kyanite will support those happy intentions and Copper will amplify the energy and encourage you to enjoy the moment.
Make the most of all that Mercury in Aries has to offer before this planet moves on next week. Mercury in Aries gives us the vibrant energy to be strong-willed and determined. It is the transit that encourages leadership, decisive action and allows us to be driven by our passions while remaining level headed. If you've got something that needs to be done, then get out there and do it! Use Red Jasper for strength and courage (it can be scary to go after what you want!) and Aventurine to ensure success.
You may feel a little disheartened as Mercury opposes Saturn. Mercury doesn't always want us to play by the rules so Saturn's strict nature could put a damper on the week. Don't let it get you down because it is actually a fantastic aspect for accomplishments in business and making things happen. Keep smiling, follow the regulations and see where it takes it you! Tiger Iron will help you color within the lines and Citrine will offer encouragement and foster a cheerful mood.
This is a glorious time as the Libra Moon trines Venus and shines a very fortunate aspect on all of us. It is an especially good day for business and relationships. If you've been thinking about making a commitment and/or signing any contracts this aspect will ensure that you are doing the right thing for everyone. Morganite will complement the joyful mood of the day.
A full moon in Scorpio brings us a powerful opportunity for healing and expansion. You may have a few scars from Scorpio's stinger but the Full Moon is a sign of completion and the end of a cycle. Now is the time to begin again. You will have strong support for healing, security and overall transformation. Malachite will provide protection and comfort while Garnet will support positive transformation.
Today's challenge is to remain centered as the Scorpio Moon opposes Jupiter. Jupiter makes everything seem bigger than it is and intensifies those Scorpio feelings of loss and insecurity. This can result in defensive behavior that will be counterproductive to your healing and transformation. Before you put your own stingers up take a moment to take a breath and don't give your power away by acting in a manner that you will later regret. Opal will remind you of how strong you truly are and Bloodstone will calm those defensive feelings.
Don't let Mars and Uranus make you feel diminished today as they form a quincunx that suggests revisions and adjustments may be necessary. You may have thought a project was complete or a plan was finished when along come these two to tell you something isn't quite right. Instead of letting this energy cause feelings of impatience and restlessness use it as an opportunity to go bigger and better. Doing great things is all about your mindset and it is imperative to remain positive through minor setbacks. Now is the time to prove to yourself and the world that nothing can stop you. Sugilite will revitalize your energy and Chrysoprase will keep you encouraged as you keep moving forward.
Do you hear that? It is the sound of peace and calm as Mercury moves out of action hero Aries into steady, reliable Taurus. Life is less intense under the influence of Taurus and that overwhelming need to accomplish everything right now will be replaced with the desire to just breathe. Personally, the influence of Mercury in Aries makes me communicate much louder and faster. Taurus encourages us to slow down, choose our words carefully and communicate from the heart. Taurus wants us to live in the moment and enjoy all that it has to offer. Pink Calcite will assist as you release that frantic pace and embrace each day.
