The times we live in now are all about change and will be for several years. Being a better and happier person is the goal. Don’t think of it as bad times, think of it as if you are a phoenix rising from the ashes to a new, better you. Flexible is the keyword. Adapt. Good things ARE coming and our minds and beliefs will manifest just what that will be.
May is the time of Taurus the bull, ruled by Venus, and an Earth sign. Taurus’s are steady, love comfort, are slow to warm to you then loyal to you for life once you bond. They are offended by vulgarity, love manners and are deeply sensuous - taste, touch and smell are important to them. 300+ thread count sheets, fine wine in lovely glasses, scented candles, cozy lounging by the fireplace, comfortable but pretty clothing, and soft music that takes you away place of softness and beauty. Taurus adds to the mood of sensuousness for everyone. Its a time for pleasure, conformity, abundance and loyalty. it’s spring. On the 21st the sun moves into Gemini - totally different energy (light, airy, fun, curious and flighty) which I will discuss in next month’s column.
This month there is a Solar Eclipse on May 10th. It takes a while to feel the impact of an eclipse usually 3-6 months, but you'll be prepared for its energy by knowing whats coming. This eclipse in Taurus affects the earth and water signs very favorably - Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn and Pisces. If you've been feeling powerless or hopeless, this will change. Its a new beginning for you. It will restore you energy. A great time to start a solid health regimen too. The air and fire signs are at odds with this eclipse - Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, and Aquarius. Leo’s, Libra’s and Aquarius will need to resolve problems which will come to a head and demand resolution.
(Read your sun AND rising sign)
ARIES: Values and resources are tested. Time to let go of unrewarding jobs, wasted efforts and pouring money after bad results. Release and be free, despite any losses. It will make room for the new.
TAURUS: This eclipse at home will give you more energy, give you opportunities for a new start and clear up any depression which may have been brewing.
GEMINI: Time to grow as a spiritual being. Meditate, pray, rejoin the church or find a new one, read uplifting books. Your inner self needs nurturing and the stars are making sure you do so.
CANCER: You know the status quo is not working, and the time for procrastination is over. Use this new found energy to make changes you know you should be making.
LEO: Been thinking about quitting that dead end job and starting your own business? Well the time has arrived.
VIRGO: Organized Virgo has all their ducks in a row, ready to launch - when something comes along to stop those plans and make you turn left or right towards something else.
LIBRA: Let go of that relationship. Being with someone who is not good for you is not better than being alone!
SCORPIO: That relationship will be revitalized and can move forward with gusto, whether personal or professional.
SAGITTARIUS: Let go of old patterns. You are not going to change/fix them. Time for a new attitude and new vistas to visit.
CAPRICORN: Step out of your practical comfort zone, and be creative. This will give you the answers, inspiration and change you seek.
AQUARIUS: Fix those family/home based issues now so you have a solid foundation to work from. Opportunities will be lost if you’re not ready for them.
PISCES: Give up some of those ideas and focus on one or two and you will find solid results. Avoid arguments with difficult people. You can’t win right now.
See you Next month! Yvonne
