May Energy Insight
The beginning of May is big in that we’re being guided to ask ourselves the major questions directly tied to our purpose but also in that we will act as a source of light for others. The energy right now is quick, luminous, and extremely conducive to any work around spiritual growth, creative expression, and stripping away all the noise and “should dos” to get to the root of whatever it is you feel viscerally called to do. What pull have you noticed for some time but ignored? This doesn’t have to be directly related to career, but it will be for many.
Many of us will think to ourselves, “What’s my bigger plan here?” as we are entering the energy of a deep, enchanted connection with ourselves and our inner truth in a way we have not seen before. Although you might not have all of the answers or a fully developed plan, don’t ignore the signs or the gentle pulls you feel--just take it one breadcrumb at a time!
The middle of the month truly is just as juicy and rich as the beginning, but here’s where we really see that divine feminine rise. We are deep in the energy of intuition, empathy, and a quiet yet powerful stillness as we embark upon a time of intimate self-discovery. This is an ideal phase to reflect on your desire for control--where does it come from, what are you trying to control and for what reason? An overexertion of fear-oriented control is the opposite of the divine feminine, so bring some awareness to this as well as a willingness to release it. A reminder: No one knows what is best for you better than YOU, so hold yourself to that standard.
As we move into the end of the month, the energy changes a bit and the focus shifts to healing through solitude. I have a feeling a lot of stuff is going to get stirred up for us the first few weeks of the month, so we’ll require time to process. This isn’t about shutting down, but rather setting some emotional boundaries for yourself and doing whatever you need to do to uphold your emotional integrity. Give yourself a day off to rest and catch up on a good book or spend an afternoon relaxing in nature. Life is not slowing down anytime soon, and you will immensely benefit from scheduling some downtime during the last 10 days of the month.
Theme: The divine feminine. Fertility, creativity, sensuality. Balanced giving and receiving.
Challenge: Coming to the end of a chapter and feeling like you’re not quite sure if you can stick it out (hint: you can!).
Opportunity: A good time to practice emotional neutrality like observing where your first response goes without getting sucked into habitual reactions. Setting emotional boundaries.
