May Astrological Asana
"Waiting is a state of mind, the usual state of mind. Presence is when you're no longer waiting for the next moment, believing that the next moment will be more fulfilling than this one."
The month of May is often synonymous with the springtime. May derived its name from the ancient earth goddess, Maia. Maia was an Oscan earth goddess, and Roman goddess of springtime. Springtime is more than just warm weather. One can tell it is springtime not only from the warm weather, but from the flowers and plants that are blooming, and by the smell in the air, the sounds of birds that have returned to home. So often we find ourselves waiting for the spring time? But happens once we are in it?
This month, we are springing forward. Having spent most of April in Mercury Retrograde in Aries, feeling like things were moving backwards or not moving at all, in May we start the month with planets Mars (action, passion) and Jupiter (expansion, abundance) are working together and uniting forces. There is a an energy of things finally starting to mature.
What happens when you start getting everything that you have prayed for and desired for? Do you run away from it and keep postponing or do you ALLOW for it to come into your life?
In the middle of May, Venus, Mercury and Mars all move from Aries into Taurus. We start the month with extra energy, and then move into a more steady movement. This is a month of fruition. We must take care of our harvest and all the blooming fruits and flowers. This is the responsibility that comes with your dreams maturing. No more waiting, the time is now!
Aries: With the Sun in your 2nd House, there is an emphasis on income and
possessions. Claim today as being enough. Give thanks for what you have now,
leave the worries about tomorrow, and focus on what makes you come alive today.
Taurus: This is a great time for you, with the Sun in
your 1st House, and Venus, Mercury and Mars making their way into your 1st
house lighting up your confidence and personality. With Neptune
in your 11th House, you are drawn to new spiritual friend groups and are
feeling open to engaging new people.
Gemini: Embrace going with the flow! If you have your heart set on a "plan", be open to a new plan coming upon you. Let life live through you. Put your ego in the passenger seat, and let your spirit take the wheel!
Your social life is lit up this month, and
by the end of the month, it may seem like there are a bunch of prominent characters
being apart of your social life. You wanted to meet these people, now open out
of that shell and share your heart.
Leo: This is a great
time for you to get a raise or notice some career opportunities come up. With these opportunities coming up, notice if you shy away from taking the responsibilities that come with career advancement. You have been asking for this, now are you ready to take on the responsibility?
Travel and Adventure are on your mind this
month. You have been dreaming about exploring and learning something new, why
not put your dreams into action? What are you waiting for? Let go of the
"way" you think things should be.
Libra: Your curious this month
and are fantasizing about exploring your desire and sexuality. Tell your partner
what you want. Stop hiding the curiousity, and let yourself explore.
You have to say what you want. And right now
relationships are on your mind. Why settle for relationships that are not satisfying you? Tell your partner what you want, and stop waiting for it, and start being the ideal partner you want.
Time to get on a routine. You have been
waiting for the time to start a new routine; maybe getting back into a gym
routine, or working regularly on a special goal. Now is the time to start
anchoring into it, start now!
Have some fun this month. You are feeling
open to being playful and creative. Give yourself a break from your seriousness
and let yourself be in the magic of spring! Feel the changes and be inspired by
the new energy!
Aquarius: This month is important to get in touch with your
emotions. Connect to your mother or your inner nurturing spirit. This may be
very challenging for you, as accepting your feelings and being vulnerable can
sometimes take the most strength.
Your are feeling curious, and maybe wanting to study something new. This is a great time to take up learning a new subject, stop thinking about it and do it – learn a new language, take a cooking class, a writing class, a public speaking class. It will come in handy!
