This month is all about change, courage, life lessons learned through experiences, personal freedom, vitality, and release and surrender. What spirit tells me is to imagine you signed up for a spiritual workshop, except it is free and all month long. Some days will be more intense than others, and others will have an extra-long lunch break. So far this year, we have had energetic realignments and deep integrating. This month we will need to practice implementing some of those changes and make adjustments where we see fit. The Universe wants us to take charge in the changes that have occurred and know that we play a part in them. May is going to be a time when we start to see some of the exterior changes reflecting all the inner work we have done thus far. You may find that the Universe is going to pace you, but just know that all is in Divine Order this month!
Think of yourself this month as a butterfly just coming out of the cocoon. There are still many mental and emotional upgrades happening to so many of us, and we are all continuing to upgrade that software where it is still needed in order for our physical bodies to catch up. Have patience with yourself this month.
Here are some other essential things to be on the lookout for this month:
- May 6th–7th—Eta Aquarids Meteor Shower: The Eta Aquarids is an above average shower, capable of producing up to 60 meteors per hour at its peak. The shower runs annually from April 19th to May 28th. It peaks this year on the night of May 6th and the morning of May 7th. The second quarter Moon will block out some of the faintest meteors this year. But if you are patient, you should still be able to catch quite a few good ones. Best viewing will be from a dark location after midnight. Meteors will radiate from the constellation Aquarius but can appear anywhere in the sky.
- May 11th—New Moon in Taurus: The Moon will be located on the same side of the Earth as the Sun and will not be visible in the night sky. This is the best time of the month to observe faint objects such as galaxies and star clusters because there will be no moonlight to interfere. With this New Moon being in the Earth sign of Taurus, this is a great time to manifest things that bring you long-term success with your goals.
- May 26th—Full Moon, Supermoon in Sagittarius and Total Lunar Eclipse: The Moon will be located on the opposite side of the Earth as the Sun and its face will be will be fully illuminated. This Full Moon was known by early Native American tribes as the Flower Moon because this was the time of year when spring flowers appeared in abundance. This Moon has also been known as the Corn Planting Moon and the Milk Moon. This is also the second of three Supermoons for 2021. The Moon will be near its closest approach to the Earth and may look slightly larger and brighter than usual. A total lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes completely through the Earth’s dark shadow, or umbra. During this type of eclipse, the Moon will gradually get darker and then take on a rusty or blood red color. The eclipse will be visible throughout the Pacific Ocean and parts of eastern Asia, Japan, Australia, and western North America.
- May 29th- Mercury Retrograde in Gemini: The second Mercury Retrograde of 2021 begins with the Pre-Shadow on May 14th, 2021.Mercury goes Retrograde on May 29th.

One thing to also keep in mind is that Pluto went into its yearly retrograde on April 27th and will be there until October 6th, and Saturn will also go into Retrograde from May 23rd to October 11th. So, if you find yourself revisiting the past this month and looking at the choices and decisions you have previously made, now is the time that you can truly surrender the past to the Universe where need be and where forgiveness may be needed. This will help you ground into the energies of the month with a solid foundation.
My work views all the elements of being a human—the physical, emotional, and mental—as deeply intertwined… It is from this whole-person perspective that we can best identify the underlying causes of our struggles and empower ourselves to heal.
