Wild Moon Wisdom Horoscopes for the week of Monday, May 1- Sunday, May 7

The Wheel of the Year turns once again and we arrive at Beltane on Monday! This holy day actually begins on Sunday evening, May Eve. Equinox, which we celebrated mid-March, marked the beginning of Spring, a time when the Light and the Dark are harmonically balanced. Now at Beltane we tilt toward mid-spring. You can acknowledge this shift in nature most intimately by observing it first in yourself…

Get quiet, tune in and feel the pulse of life in your own breath and beating heart. Look around you and see the signs of life, the promise of spring fulfilled, the way the sunlight initiates the rising vines and opening blossoms as if into an ecstatic mystery.

I won’t go into the particular observances and traditions of Beltane here but will mention that  if it is not personally a holy day to you, you can still honor the seasonal shift with a simple celebration of your own.  Light a fire outside in your firepit, or inside in your cauldron, and consider your deepest desires, what ignites your soul, as well as how the expression of your shakti, sexuality and sensuality are honored or diminished. Make a vow of commitment to yourself and to radical self-acceptance.

 

 

Oh yeah, and Mercury stations on Wednesday. ;)

 

Enjoy your week. xo, KK

Aries & Aries Rising

Monday is May Day, Beltane, a turn in the great wheel that brings us closer to summer, closer to our deepest desires waiting to manifest. The news everyone’s been waiting for, Mercury turning direct, happens on Wednesday morning. Keep in mind that Wednesday is a station day and when the planet “changes direction” its energies are exaggerated, so don’t make any sudden moves yet. Mercury is in your sign and first house and has been creating disturbances in your ability to communicate to others without wanting to punch them. ;) Can you keep a cool head just a little bit longer, as the communication planet moves through the brief shadow period? Try. Then some of the aggro tension will lift and your interactions will feel more balanced. Soon you can finally use technology again without your head exploding and your travel arrangements will be unhindered.
Enjoy the good financial luck you seem to be having this Taurus season, and make the most of it.

On Saturday evening the Libra moon opposes Venus, creating a potential sensitive heart or free flow of emotion. Remember what is most important to you, Aries.

You will emerge from this retrograde with deeper insight into other people’s as well as your own secrets and hidden motivations, your past patterns, and with some closure.
