Travelling through Mercury retrograde till May 15th is an invitation to relax and create spaciousness for dreams with precious insights and revelations. The world of dreaming offers great value into the heart and holds powerful guides to the inner soul.
In mythology, Mercury carries the dreams to the human realm. The auric energy of this quicksilver emissary touches the melody of the mind as you discover the jewel in the shadow.
Mercury is currently in direct visionary communion with the zodiacal sign of Taurus (fixed earth) bringing forth a cosmic vortex of divine light codes; creativity, healing and harmony for all to embody.
Retrograde periods themselves are a time to reflect; review, release, rest and recharge. It is an ideal opportunity to explore inner worlds and allow more enchantment and self-reflection in your life.
In the solar month of Taurus (April 21st – May 21st) Venus the planetary ruler, embodies self-love and pleasure. The Sun is our creative expression and life-force with the synthesis of etheric starlight, sound and vibration within the earthly temple brings to mind the axiom as above so below.
The magical botanicals of apple blossom; cacao, damiana, rose and violet are dedicated to the heavenly Venus as they are considered secrets of the stars.
When you rest gently on the earth you can hear the whispers of untold cosmic lore.
Ancient navigators tracked open waters by following the stars and constellations. If you look out to the western horizon after sunset, you can see Venus as the Evening Star twinkling brightly for the next few months before her retrograde cycle begins at the end of July. This celestial map has never been lost with the songs of the Star People and the sky river of birds.
The Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio (fixed water) on May 6th illuminates the potential for metamorphosis. The transpersonal awareness of the depth of soul work required to transmute the scorpion shadow to gold. These pathways of discovery are deep resourceful places of internal communication and intelligence.
As the ancient wind spirits blow away the eclipse ash of the holy fires, allow the gracefulness to honour any tiredness during the waning cycle of the full to dark moon.
The key is inward stillness and not outward action.
- Can you sit in the stillness and be in love with yourself?
- Where can you create more spaciousness to rest?
- What are you releasing with the eclipse season?
- What are you welcoming as a new chapter in your life?
Venus moves into the tropical sign of Cancer (cardinal water) from May 8th – June 5th. This swift sojourn conjures up the cusp of magick and emotional feelings. Cancer is a highly, intuitive water sign of psychic abilities. The primordial waters are the great cosmic ocean and the womb of creation itself.
The blue lotus flower, rooted in the fertile earth reaches for the light of the sun as it transcends all limitations and offers the gift of renewal and rebirth.
May you embrace the blue lotus, born of the mud and water, as you come home to the sacred art of self-love during this astrological month.
Much love from the dreaming pod…
