There is a definitive movement happening at the moment. This Flower Essence and monthly Astro report is full to the brim.
April has been a massive month of refining, culling and moving full circle. More than aligning to what we value. It’s aligning to the heart of who we are. It’s been an incredibly challenging time for some.
Things could go through a deep sense of evolvement over the coming months as we shift and change. Some of us to the core of our own soul.
May will give us a little breather. Mid-month things will feel like they are moving forward.
One thing is for sure. With planets Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto retrograding. All sitting on the south node of the moon. This signifies endings. Closure to the past. Creating space for the new to enter. Embracing the unknown and get comfortable with being uncomfortable.
Our family had a health scare this month. I can’t go into too much detail to respect my family’s privacy. It rocked our world. A sense of foreboding panic and shock resonated through our safe little unit. It’s something that’s been a profound turning pivot point and worth mentioning here.
It changed my outlook. It’s opened many doors. Too many good ones. A pivot point for certain.
Thoughts, worries and worse case scenarios have gone through my mind over the past few weeks. The truth, still evolving as we wave through further testing and wait to gain definitive answers. It’s nothing too serious – nothing that can’t be managed.
One thing is for certain – if we want to certain outcomes. There’s no time for any sense of self-doubt or fear. Choose empowerment over anything else. Trust what you see and feel. There’s no room for complacency. This is living.
One thing is for sure – the truth can be elusive. The truth can also be a considerable whack over the head.
The Shock and the Hidden Relief of Truth
With this one shock comes a series of truths. And with that, I began noticing things I hadn’t prior. I took big leaps of faith. They were later welcomed and claimed. Although at the time, inconvenient. Resistance to change, prevalent.
I’m trusting the guide within. Taking space. Observing the next steps. Things are evolving so fast at the moment. As one-layer releases, another comes in its place. Now I am in full trust of this process. It took a little while, yet I’m here meeting what it is. Connected to the now – with an eye on the future prize.
One stand out. Our time and energy are so precious. It’s a definitive currency. It’s what we use to create what we want and need. Not something I want to take for granted. Again, or ever. None of us should.
To keep in touch with this move and groove era, I keep coming back to the moment. To this minute. To this hour. To this day. It’s made the days seem longer and I feel I am more available to whatever presents.
Another stand out. When things appear to be flowing into a totally new direction than you expected. DIg deep. Try not to feed the fear. Meet the resistance to what is. Head-on. Harder said than done when we are attached to certain outcomes. This is what’s being called of us now. There’s something waiting to be released or changed to make way for a stronger foundation. These are the shifting times we find ourselves in.
There are many definitive moments like this in May. A tweak here. A tweak there. Slowing down to notice what needs this refinement will be the gold you can use to empower yourself over the coming weeks.
Jupiter, Pluto, and Saturn.
With the retrograde action of Jupiter, Pluto, and Saturn. Things will slow down a little after the rattle and hum of April. Although things might feel heavy from time to time.
The Saturn Pluto retrograde all sitting near the moon’s south node. And slowly moving away There’s an interplay around the past and its power underway. This will be with us again in full force come January 2020.
Pluto is the archetype known to tear things down. It does this so a stronger and more aligned foundation can be created. A particular way of being or working is no longer viable. Whether you’re ready for the up a level or you’re done with same old same old. This may become apparent over the coming weeks.
The Notre Dame Cathedral fire, although shocking, was incredibly symbolic. You can read an excellent article by Eloise Meskanen. It’s so well written. And leaves food for thought.
It can’t be ignored that our external world is reflected in this way. The old burning to make way for the new. Our attachments to things and people will come under scrutiny as some of us may be forced to let go.
Saturn forces us to take responsibility and sends the karma if we ignore the call. Be responsible for your vibe and inner and outer health on all levels. Simplify where you can.
Saturn values discipline. So, if you’ve managed to find a groove, Saturn will play nice. Even send a reward or two.
Uranus, now in Taurus. This awakens what we value, our energy resources, our connection to the earth. It can bring a shock out of the blue to wake us and help us to rethink our current life path, belief or destiny. Mindset tools will help to shift our point of view and get us out of any funk if we need.
There’s been a slight sense of foreboding. A change in our economic climate. A possible shift in government here in Australia. Changes in season. This can keep some of us on the back foot. Trust. Make the changes you need to. Instead of moving to what feels secure. Move towards what feels right.
You may find that you finally push past some deeply entrenched habits. Even letting go of some definitive wounds from the past. This inner work is not easy. However, a deeper sense of contentment and relief always sits on the other side.
Flower Essences can support you through this process. They can give you the reprieve, inner peace and new perspective you seek.
The Flower Essence for May
The flower essence that resonates with this month is the glorious Purple Flag.
The essence of relief and release. The Purple Flag allows us to relax when we are going through challenges. It also helps the body to release and unwind. It’s an essence that can get under your skin and awaken the letting go process. It gives us space to breathe and let go of the feeling of having to respond or react to any given moment. We can simply chillax. Connect.
Purple Flag is also the acceptance essence. The “what will be will be” essence.
I use this essence when treating chronic pain and chronic illness. It helps one to open to healing even though all the senses are on high alert and in a protective defensive pattern. Purple Flag cuts through all of this – allowing healing and new energy to find its way to you.
Being open to what is will pay dividends.
The New Moon 4th May in Taurus
If you’re into setting new moon intentions – this is the one to plant new seeds for you AND the earth. Taurus is deeply connected to nature. She’s the natural sign for, love abundance and fertility. This is a lovely time to give yourself the space to do this. A fertile sign may bring a sense of virility to what you want to manifest for your life.
I’m choosing to use this new moon to release what no longer serves and awakening with a full heart of what does. This may prove to be a very stabilizing time because of this.
With it comes a readjustment. Transition – I mentioned this for April, except I think there is a full stop after everything we’ve navigated over the past weeks. Either way, the energy here is helpful should you want to create some considerable power or good stead to a new project or idea. There’s a deeper sense of commitment on offer.
Empowering the Earth
The earth gives to us and holds us daily. With no validation.
There’s an intelligence that runs through nature. An intelligence that can’t be replicated. Not by technology. Nothing can do this.
Connecting to nature attunes us to this/our own natural intelligence. It allows us to be grounded. Feel connected and alive. The emotional benefits of connecting to nature fills your cup, gives relief and rejuvenation. It’s a #nobrainer in feeling restored through busy and expanded times.
Taurus is practical no-nonsense, calls out the bull shit in an instant type of sign. It’s also one that attunes to sustainability. Whatever moves you through this new moon. Make sure what you intend is sustainable and real.
With aspects to Mercury and Uranus – mental breakthroughs could occur. Take advantage of that, even write what you sense down.
The Full Moon 19th May
Just before the full moon answers may come to give you a deeper understanding of why you love the things you do. Why you do the work you do. A missing piece to your jigsaw. Consolidation of what you want and need.
In the archetypical sign of Scorpio, the sign for transformation. This is the time to dig down and trust. Trust in your self – the signals you feel in your body. Listen. The synchronicities will turn up. These are the little affirming niggles pointing to the way forward.
With Pluto retrograding, it’s a great time to sync into the cycle of releasing and walking through old fears. Embrace experience over the material gain. This will be a theme over months, years, to come. Everything will be magnified over this time. Take heed and observe.
With aspects to Mars – there is a propensity for some irritability and argy-bargy until July. Just be mindful that this is “around”.
If life does not feel so light. Do something to reclaim it. Face some deep fears. And that pain – the physical, emotional or mental stuff that never goes away. You don’t have to live with that. Suffering has its place. For now. It needn’t be through choice nor pushing through.
A lot of what is being exposed right now has to either go or be transformed.
The way forward. New action. Action can motivate new mindsets. Slow down.
If you know you need to make changes, this is the month to reflect on what this could be. Make a list of all the things. Cull where you can. Make it your choice. Don’t wait for the force of hand.
This is not about having a sense of the fateful. This is you trusting an intuitive call.
“Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.” ―Rumi
I’m probably not telling you anything you don’t already know. Intuitively align with the energy and feelings you’re currently experiencing. There are no black and white answers at the moment. If it feels right, change it. If that feels amazing. Do it again.
Until next time
