Happy May everyone!

For most of this month, the Sun will be in Venus-ruled Taurus. Sensuality, potent sexual energy, beauty and heart-centered love are themes in the air for us this month.

However, there is also a transformational element at this time, that can make us feel turbulent and uncomfortable. But these feelings are shifts that are needed to progress and come into more wholeness.

Here is a Tarot and Goddess Oracle card reading for insights on the energies this month, and how to best navigate them in the weeks ahead…

If you ask yourself only one question this month, let it be this: “What can I let go of, to further my expansion?” Has anything been holding you back from your growth and progress? This is a time to let it go.

Also, this month is a good time to focus on setting some foundations…

2018 is a year of BUILDING.

In Chinese astrology, this is the year of the Yang Earth Dog. Yang Earth is linked to the symbol of a mountain This is a year to climb mountains and plant seeds. What is on the top of your “mountain”? What is your vision? Putting in the efforts that are necessary to see your vision materialize promises to bear “fruit”. Just take those steps!

This is also a month for us to focus on pleasure.

As mentioned earlier, for most of May we are under the influence of Taurus, which is ruled by Venus-the planet of love, beauty, pleasure, desire and sensuality. Enjoy beauty, nature and sensual pleasures for these next few weeks. Let’s not underestimate the power and importance of Venus’s gifts to the world! It offers us more than we may realize…

And the last message comes to us in the symbol of a bird…

Be free as a bird.

Again, is there anything that holds you back? Break free! If it feels right for you to do so, keep a symbol of a bird around to remind you and help you to come into more freedom as you move through the weeks ahead.

goddess kaliFrom “The Goddess Oracle” by Amy Sophia Marashinsky:


I am the dance of death that is
behind all life
the ultimate horror
the ultimate ecstasy
I am existence
I am the dance of destruction that
will end this world
the timeless void
the formless devouring mouth
I am rebirth
Let me dance you to death
Let me dance you to life
Will you walk through your fears to dance with me?
Will you let me cut off your head
and drink your blood?
then will you cut off mine?
Will you face all the horror
all the pain
all the sorrow
and say “yes”?
I am all that you dread
all that terrifies
I am your fears
will you meet me?

Kali has appeared as our goddess guide for May to help us to face whatever we fear to face, to transform, and to let go of whatever has been holding us back from our truth and expansion.

If you’d like, work with her this month. Ask her to help you. Tell her you are ready to let go. She is a powerful ally…
