It is Beltane/Samhain as we welcome the month of May, that magical time of the year, the polarity of life and death. In the Northern Hemisphere, the start of summer is celebrated by the Gaelic Festival of May Day and Beltane, the good (bel) fire (tane)—delight in the fertile energies and spring and new growth.
In the Southern Hemisphere, Samhain marks the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter. The veil between worlds is the thinnest, so it is an excellent night for divination or setting a spell for protection or manifestation. Feast with friends and remember those who have passed. They have crossed over and are now at peace. Place photos on your altar, reminisce and tell them you are thinking about them!
May brings good news and a time of re-alignment. Change is in progress, and the future is better, brighter and happier. We all go through difficult times or periods of struggle, but the human spirit is strong, and we always manage to pull through. Peace and healing are ahead. You have been through a time of personal growth and spiritual evolution. A chapter in your life has ended, and it is time to move on to a better life.
The beginnings of new happiness abound, so open your heart to new love, forgiveness and self-compassion. A deeper, intimate connection with someone is possible now. Mend any broken relationships and forgive yourself and others who have hurt you in the past. It’s time for sympathy, understanding and empathy. Reach out and touch someone.
The veil between worlds is thin right now, so get in touch with your inner voice and intuition. Tap into your higher wisdom and knowing. Trust your gut feelings and respond to the messages that come from within. Use this time for stillness and going within to find the answers. Look behind the obvious and sense what is hidden or unknown. Seek out what is hidden and concealed. Scrying, meditation, journeying and all kinds of divination are ideal now.
Develop your intuition and psychic powers or study Tarot, astrology or metaphysics. Understand the possibilities and hidden talents that you have. May is the time for seeking knowledge, up-skilling or learning something new. Grow, expand and enrich yourself.
May also brings good news around finances, money, work and career. There will be new opportunities, abundance and financial security in the coming weeks. You are in alignment with your dreams, and manifestation can happen now. So set things in motion and make plans real!
The Full Moon is in Scorpio on Saturday, 6th May, and it is a moon for securing boundaries and protection. If you always put others first or your wants and needs are being ignored, you are not valuing yourself. Stay strong; setting new boundaries and saying “No” will empower you.
The vibration will be intense during the Scorpio full moon lunar eclipse as the stars make one final push to remove anything that no longer serves you. Energies will have a closing effect, tying up any loose ends that have been complicating your life. It is a time of transition and change, which can be challenging. But know that the Universe’s ultimate goal is to support you!
