Happy May Day! May 1st is Beltane, a time to celebrate fertility in all areas of your life. And we have a new moon this Saturday so be sure to take some time to focus on new beginnings. What brings you joy? What do you want things to look and feel like moving forward? It's time to visualize, ask, listen, and create. Some ways you can enjoy and celebrate Beltane are to have a bonfire, light candles in sacred ceremony, basically, any ritual that incorporates the element of fire will be most welcome. Traditionally, it was common to dance around the Beltane fire in celebration of new beginnings and fertility in preparation of summer.

This month is all about the changes. I am shown the number five which represents change and transformation. And of course, May is the month of 5. The start of this year you may have felt like the caterpillar stuck in the cocoon desperately wanting to become the butterfly and fly free. Well... now's your time. You can expect to see big shifts in your relationships, work, career, location, and health this month. This is a month of endings and beginnings as new freedom and opportunities open up. You'll feel a surge of new energy as you emerge re-inspired and ready for a new adventure. Fearlessly say goodbye to the old with gratitude, and joyfully embrace the new with faith. Don't try to run before you walk, ease yourself into these changes so that you can enjoy them. January through April carried an intensity that may have left you feeling a little tired. The more you resist the more troublesome things will be. The more you surrender and rest the easier you'll navigate these changes. The elementals show a big boulder and someone pushing it uphill and they say, don't do this. And then they show someone lying back on the water letting it carry them to their next destination, do this.
Pay attention, as you'll be getting lots of signs and omens. You may feel more open psychically and feel more connected spiritually, finding it easier to receive insights and ideas. It's important not to rush new ideas because your clarity is increasing day to day. Remember that time is an illusion. Focus on the feeling and surrender the time to spirit. Journalling would be a good practice this month to take note of new insights and ideas so that you can refer back to them. This isn't about getting back to the old you, this is about breaking free into the new and improved you. If there's something you've been wanting to try but have been feeling intimidated, this is an excellent month to muster up your courage and go for it. Break free! You'll feel anxiety slip away as your courage transforms it into newfound peace. As you hear me say, 'Don't make things better, make better things.' This statement applies to this month as the changes you're addressing are foundational.
Do you dare to believe in yourself? This is the question spirit puts forth to you this month. Thus far in the year you may have felt like you've been laying a new foundation, alas the concrete has poured and settled, and this month you feel it fully solidify. Enjoy this enhanced security and feeling of safety as you've earned it. What's next? That beautiful foundation you've poured will become a trampoline for you to springboard off of and reach new and impressive heights. The only thing that can hold you back is you. This month's card asks you to move from deep within, honouring your true self. If you're on the right track you'll find yourself caring less and less about the opinion of others. If you have any patterns of competition they will pop up for clearing this month.
This month, challenge yourself to see yourself as spirit sees you: worthy, lovable, and capable. If you have a hard time seeing the beauty in yourself, catch yourself noticing the beauty in nature, seeing it in the sky, trees, birds, and in others. And then remind yourself that you are all interconnected, when you recognize beauty in something or someone else, you are in fact, recognizing the beauty in you. Guess you had more self-love than you may have realized...
On the first of every month, I pull a card from my Faye Oracle Cards, which feature characters from my book, A Tale of Faye. I share what the card and character represent, as well as any additional insights my guides bring through so that you can be aware of the energy and make the most of the month. I also share any energy themes as I feel guided.
