With Beltane, Festival of Fire, coming up this Friday, we are wanting to get a little bit more physical, swimming out of the water and stepping into the fire, we are traveling from second chakra Svadhistana which is right in the pelvic basin towards our solar plexus, Manipura chakra. Beltane is the beginning of summer and the mid point betweek the Spring Equinox and the Summer Solstice. From now on our energy will pick up with the Sun until the peak point of summer, the Solstice. Welcome sunnier, brighter days with a smile!
This week Mercury, planet of communication, passes into earthy, sensual Taurus for the next three weeks. This brings a slower, more pragmatic approach to all ways of expression, getting right to the point. Mercury will square Saturn on Tuesday so avoid having important talks, meetings or signing contracts this day as there is more chances of misunderstandings or communications going awry.
Another week of sunshine when we are having to stay indoors, the irony of things… Or perhaps just another challenge. This week we have a Sun-Saturn square on Tuesday which may be a little patience-testing as Saturn is the planet of limitations and boundaries. My best advice? Don’t fight it, just let go and allow for those possible delays, let go of all resistance and chill out. Especially as this square is followed by a new moon in Taurus on Wednesday – mega-chill times! Taurus is a fixed, Earth, feminine sign, ruled by Venus, planet of beauty and sensuality. So think of letting go, enjoying the darkness of the black moon tonight and use this time to pamper yourself, do something creative – painting, dancing, writing… whatever calls you. Oh and, before I forget, keep connecting with nature. This time of the year everything is blossoming – Venus – so go get some flowers (potted if possible!) and bring nature into your home. Smell the flowers everyday and get that magical beautifully scented prana into your system… Bliss!
