Merlin – Wisdom, Teacher
Time for a new mentor or teacher to come in. Share your wisdom and use it to teach others. Pay close attention to repetitive thoughts as they are divine insights.
This month of 6 asks you to reign it in and relax. Spirit shows me a group of people walking with their hands out trying to feel their way through the dark. This stressful feeling is completely unnecessary if you are willing to listen and trust in your repetitive guidance. Seek support and then follow through with divinely guided action. Have you been ignoring the signs spirit is sending you? Are you giving yourself enough time to process your changes and shifts so that you are making the best decisions for yourself? Or are you rushing things and not really listening? Alternatively, you may be sitting back, afraid or resistant to make a necessary move. Remember sometimes things need to breakdown in order to breakthrough. This month may shake some things up for that very purpose. Healing is a journey, not a destination. Be honest with yourself if you are too attached to the outcome as opposed to the intention. Follow your feelings to find your flow. This month asks you to realign, to sit down and write out your values. Are your decisions and actions in alignment with them? Are you prioritizing the right things? You are reminded that you have to pause and reflect in order to receive.
This month raises the bar for self-connection. You are asked to reflect on the things that have ended, increased, or simply shifted recently, and go within to fully understand why. Self-reflection will be the key that unlocks your clarity and freedom even further. Ask spirit for guidance and help to move forward with healing change and positive growth. Pay attention to the signs, this includes red flags. If you're not happy in an area of your life this month will encourage you to look in the mirror and honestly address how you're contributing to it. You can expect mirroring to be heightened, especially on the home front. The teaching energy of this month will show up in your family and home relationships as everyone is encouraged to grow or let go of what is no longer working. This is your month to implement healthy changes and create a new routine. Are you lowering your vibration for others and playing it small? Patterns of selfishness, addiction, and denial will be brought to the forefront for healing. This is a very supportive month to declutter and get things organized.
Six is a nurturing number, a number of harmony and balance. I like to say, see six as a hug from heaven. The movement of self-love from last month is ready to grow if you'll allow it. If you are burnt out, it's time to heal and turn that burn out into beauty and bounty. Your mental, emotional, spiritual and physical well-being is the heart of the matter this month. Your well-being is your abundance.
Air element is strong this month which is why it's extra important to practice self-care and self-connection so you don't get stuck in your head. Air is connected to wisdom and intellect so when it's imbalanced you can have too much mental energy and find yourself in a head versus heart stalemate. This is your time to clear any old associations of selfish being a part of self-love. The key is to see your energy like a cloud, you want to be gently and subtly shapeshifting, moving, and adapting. Seek within and realign for your greatest good. Because the best way you can take care of your family and others is to first take supreme care of you.
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.
Mirella – Intuition, Beauty
A time of deep processing, transformation, and heightened intuition. Go within to develop your intuition and reach new spiritual heights. A focus on beauty and self-esteem, finding positive body image, you are beautiful inside and out.
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...
