Angelic Astrology – May 2017
After the busy and intense astrological energies of April, there may not appear to be as much going on in May…..however, just as a huge wave washes up on the shore, it still leaves an imprint in the sand as it is pulled back out to sea…..and so we still have the “imprint in the sand” for this month of May.
Let’s talk about the numerology vibration for this month first. May is a 15/6 Universal Month Vibration. The single digit vibration of the 6 is about home and family, our emotional nature, nurturing, caretaking, counseling and healing. It is the provider, the humanitarian, the one who is responsible, and is about seeking truth and justice. The number six likes to seek beauty and harmony in life and it is about balancing matters of home life and career life equally. These energies will be some of our focus for the month of May.
The 15th Major Arcana in the Tarot is The Devil. This card’s meaning is often misunderstood and is not about a “being” outside of us that wants to do us harm. This card is pertaining to our “shadow side”…..our lower vibrational emotions and anxieties….it is the projection of the “fear” energies within us that are unresolved. It is about a loss of faith in ourselves and in the goodness of humanity. The Devil card can be about the misuse of power and control…..it is about the dis-empowerment of ourselves by operating and living through our “fear” energy. What this card is asking, is for us to slip out of the imaginary chains that bind us to our “shadow sides” and empower ourselves. Your “fears” are simply energies that have been holding you back from moving forward on your journey. Once you overcome your fears (shadow side), you break free from the disempowering situations and circumstances that they have created in your life so that you can move into your true spiritual power to create the life that you desire.
The first astrological energy of significance this month is Mercury, planet of the mental realm, turning back to direct motion at 24 degrees Aries on May 3rd. It will take until May 20th before Mercury moves out of his “shadow period”, passing 4 degrees Taurus where he first went retrograde, but we should start to feel the positive movement in our thoughts, ideas, and communications within the first week of the month.
On the 9th and 10th of May we have some very important energies taking place. First, we have the Sun in Taurus in a positive connection to Pluto in Capricorn. This is an aspect of empowerment. Also on the same day, and even more important, is the North and South Node moving out of the signs of Virgo and Pisces, where they have been since November 2015, and moving into the signs of Leo and Aquarius. The Nodes are very karmic, bringing a turning point of energies into play. The South Node is about the past and where we are coming from, including the releasing of old karma. The North Node is about the future and what we are working towards or aiming for, including our dharma. Loosely speaking, while the Nodes were in Pisces and Virgo we were clearing the collective past and healing spiritual wounds while learning to use our gifts of discernment and healing our self-critical thoughts on the mental level. With the Nodes now moving into Aquarius and Leo, we will be (re)connecting with groups of like-minded people with a common purpose and our spiritual “soul family” to create new ways of being, doing, and living, as well as moving into leadership positions in order to shine our Light forth in the creation of this new way.
This transition of the Nodes into Aquarius and Leo leads us to the Full Moon at 20 degrees Scorpio on May 10th. The only major aspect to this Full Moon is to Pluto, who is only a couple of weeks into his 5 month long retrograde cycle, and is the ruling planet of Scorpio, sign of this Full Moon. So, this should be a powerful lunation, especially with the North and South Node changing signs the day before. Also on the day of this Full Moon, Mercury, the Messenger, will connect with Uranus, the Great Awakener so it may very well be that some information that has been hidden will suddenly come to light and be made known.
On May 16th Mercury moves back into Taurus where he was at the beginning of April before turning to retrograde motion. So, as he moves beyond the degree of his initial reversal on May 20th, certain ideas, plans, communications, and/or actions started then, may be able to either move forward now, or come to a conclusion. Also on May 20th, the Sun moves into Gemini, sign of communication, which will further support all things of the mental realm such as learning, teaching, writing, and speaking.
We also must remember to mention the 2nd trine connection between Saturn and Uranus. The first time this occurred was in December 2016, the second time is on May 19th, and the third and final time is in November 2017. The dance between these two planets are assisting in bridging the energies of the past into the energies of the future, with Saturn ruling karma from other times and 3rd dimensional living, and Uranus ruling Higher God Mind energies and the “Higher” aspects of where we are heading as a collective on the planet.
The last astrological energy of significance that we will discuss here is the New Moon at 4 degrees Gemini on May 25th. This lunation has no aspects to it, although Mars is also in Gemini at 23 degrees supporting the energies of new beginnings in all forms of intellectual stimulation and interactions with others.
We should also remember that the Saturn/Chiron square of April is still in effect for the entire month of May (please see the April Angelic Astrology Article)…..although, it is separating and these planets are pulling away from one another so that the effect will be lessened by the end of the month. We will be revisited by this transit more strongly again in the fall and, once again, move through another wave of clearing and releasing of old karmic energies, wounds, and connections to the past.
