May Energy Insight
May kicks off with an energy that has a very assertive feeling to it, especially with regards to communication and the way in which we communicate. Be aware of the power that your words hold and trust that most often, less is more. This energy is also centered on standing firmly in your power, so in a time where many people are feeling especially powerless and, as a result, are acting carelessly, know that this is one channel that you can own completely and use in a very targeted, specific, and impactful way.
The idea of perception also comes through very intensely this month in general, but it’s especially important to be aware of at the beginning of the month due to the energetic disposition that is at hand. The next several weeks will present a strong tendency to get swept up in the perception of things or circumstances, but with that also comes an opportunity to take a step back and really assess and analyze these things from all angles. If you choose to do so, you’ll have an ability to see circumstances for what they really are without getting overly emotionally attached, and even better, you’ll be able to see where your true power in each circumstance lies.
The middle of the month will have this feeling of scattered or stagnant energy and brings up a sense of doing everything and nothing all at the same time. If we drill down a bit further, this is all related to dreams and goals, so look back on what we discussed in April: getting clear on what you want. If you took the time to do so, you can see the value in being able to reference this plan in a time when your ideas feel particularly disjointed.
It’s always important to have a practice established where you are able to center yourself and still your mind, but this will be particularly important during this middle of the month nebulous energy. When we see an energy with a great velocity to it, it can often cause us to feel scattered as our mind can’t segment everything happening around us. Lean on any and all mindfulness practices you like, and don’t forget that you are the one who is in control of your thoughts. As crazy and hectic as external circumstances become, it’s up to you to find a way to create that inner stillness.
As we close out the month, it will be very important to ask ourselves what it is that we are trying to protect. Once again, this lands on communication, so be very aware of what in your life you feel you are hiding out of the fear of stirring things up or contradicting the status quo. If you are having a difficult time seeing this, just ask yourself what your motivation is for keeping this holed up, and be honest with yourself about what lies at the core. There is something that is not being said that is ready to come to the surface, so lean into the discomfort and trust your instinct on what it is you need to do.
Overall theme: Taking ownership of your thoughts. There may be a financial or health-related situation that comes up and throws you off balance, so be cognizant of the spiral your mind wants to take. Tackle the issue one step at a time and do not get caught up in worst case scenarios. The faster you can calm your mind, the sooner you will see this issue clear up.
Challenge: You could be presented with a new financial opportunity (perhaps related to the financial situation that arises), so be sure you are able to clearly see that this will inevitably entail ups AND downs. When in this process, don’t assume everything has been for not if you find yourself in a lull. Again, pay attention to where your mind wants to go here.
Opportunity: Playing off of the theme and challenge this month, the opportunity is to use your resources. What is in front of you that you are not seeing? There is great power in what you already have access to, so take advantage of it. Here we again see the concept of perception and mastery over your circumstances, so do not get caught up in the have nots and seeming impossibilities. You have everything you need, but it’s up to you to open your eyes to it.
