Gems From The Stars And Astrological Insights with Ysanne/ May

As we women have an instinctive link with the moon’s cycles and the flow of the tides within and outside of us, it is important to recognise the lunar as well as other planetary movements during the month.

 I am so happy to be writing about the Stars and sharing my insights and May forecasting on the wonderful connection between YOU and the wisdom of the stars and planets above

We are all interconnected – a vibrant web of energy – and timing is a very important part of being in health so as to avoid stress and the mismatching of ourselves with people, places and opportunities.

As we women have an instinctive link with the moon’s cycles and the flow of the tides within and outside of us, it is important to recognise the lunar as well as other planetary movements during the month. The word moon is linked with mother, matter and month! How well are you furnishing your inner home?

Softer skills are to the fore as we stay at home more and it is lovely to see more empathy, listening, crafts and caring emerging! 

 The journey we are on at a core level is expressed by the qualities and lessons of our star signs. The Sun travels through the 12 in its yearly journey – from the perspective of the Earth – and they are divided into seasons and elements.  It Starts with Aries at the spring equinox.

Softer skills are to the fore as we stay at home more and it is lovely to see more empathy, listening, crafts and caring emerging! 

 We are all experiencing how and where we spend time in a very different way at present, so here are some nuggets of advice with a look at your personal star signs in the week ahead.

  On the eve of a Full Moon tomorrow – 7th May at 11.45 am BST- this is a time to honour our deeper desires and emotions. Full moons amplify and bring to a head that which has been pending. Fluid levels are higher and emotions heightened. With this full moon in the sign of Scorpio, in opposition to the Sun in Taurus, we address the balance between preserving the familiar and allowing the unknown and the power of transformation.  Our imaginations are heightened now so let us use them productively and to create warm and generous atmospheres.

What can you learn about yourself from natural beauty?

Fire Signs

ARIES: The full moon in your arena of deep change and psychological insight, encourages you to want to put a new face on to the world!  The question is what face? By the next new moon on 22nd May you will be showing a part of you that draws people to you who offer invites and kindness.  So, relax more these next days. You don’t have to hold the whole show together!  

LEO: How you energetic Leos find this time of big change only you know!  The world may feel a bit small at present for your large persona, yet your inner power is wanting to be used to make a difference.  The approaching full moon highlights home and career, and things pending come to a timely head. After 13th you can experience more variety and indeed enjoyment in small matters. The child in you  would like an airing.

SAGITTARIUS:  You are making plans for the next stage. Your vision is finely honed and more than most people you can see the way forward. Others will look to you for advice and you might feel like adding counselling skills to your repertoire. Memories and connections with people from the past will be appearing and providing opportunities to see things with new eyes and clarity. Work matters or the desire to work take precedence now. The main thing is to feel you can be of service.

Earth Signs

TAURUS: The full moon is in a pivotal place in your birth chart on 7th May. It brings to a head some unresolved feelings or issues at home. Knowing when to let go and surrender some old way of reacting will be advantageous as you move into midmonth. Repeating habits in a relationship will not serve you now. Your intuition is strong and will guide you when stubbornness due to unrealised fears arises.  The 10th is a romantic day for you.

VIRGO: Your ruling planet, Mercury, moves from earthy Taurus into a compatible sign on the 12th. Therefore, your able mind will start lending itself to new ideas, projects and ways of communicating.  This is a good time to study-any area where you have to figure things out and how they work. Curiosity runs you now.  It is not a time to be sedentary in your mind. Explore it and use your brilliance!

CAPRICORN: Your ruling planet Saturn turns retrograde in movement on 11th. What does this mean? Well, for a few days around that date you can take stock of how strategically you have been managing your life and what your next plan is.  Re tracing steps is valuable for you now, and after midmonth you will feel on a steadier course as you get a handle on how best to make some important decisions. Even if the time is not ripe for implanting them, making them is the focus. 

Air Signs

Gemini: With planets on your side at present, especially after 12th when Mercury moves into your sign, keep enjoying being in the moment, with the simple things of life. If you are working from home expect some kind of advancement or new approach to a project. For those of you not working in the employed sense, join a new group on line or initiate a cause or fund raise. Expect a return or blast from the past later this month.

LIBRA: A cultural experience on line or in conversation highlights your coming week. You may not have realised you have been lacking this input and it will bring a smile to your face when you have filled your heart with this beauty. Whatever medium draws you now bathe in it and hold it close. After 13th people draw closer too and any re negotiations necessary are timely. Finances are highlighted with the full moon in that arena of your horoscope.

 AQUARIUS: Mars still in your sign till 13th encourages the maverick in you. Then, a more relaxed and accepting side of you emerges, and you will want to either prune or step aside from any stress and excess activity of the mind. Saturn in your sign starts to retrograde on 11th and you feel like being a tad more conventional and in line with people who are more cautious than you. There is a sense of belonging which is overdue – before you break free again!  A parent or parent figure needs your attention.

Water Signs

CANCER: A strategic streak in you is needed this coming week to handle people who are being rather needy. Your caring side can absorb too much as you know so you are learning to detach a little whilst still being helpful. As you get closer to 13th when Mars enters fellow water sign Pisces, your dreams will give you information and even your telepathic ability is heightened. The full moon approaching draws young people closer to you! A renewed sense of belonging and of déjà vu are present.

SCORPIO:  The full moon in your sign on 7th May provides you with the power and knowledge to start something new as well as to bring certain matters to completion. This is an excellent time for re balancing and   becoming more aware of your skills in relationships and work matters. You feel more sensual than usual so enjoy the person you are with, or be out in nature or enjoy the arts. Feel the magic within you and embrace it. Others will quickly notice. Feel as though your glass is truly full, not half empty.

PISCES:  If the past couple of months have not been too easy you will find as you move towards midmonth that situations and people are much more on your side. Especially when assertive Mars enters Pisces on 13th you can start to speak your mind more and restore order from any confusion around you. The 10th sees a lovely alignment with your ruling planet Neptune and the Sun so do use that day for being open to your higher self and to others. It is a romantic day too.
