The Return of Optimism

“I never said I wanted a 'happy' life but an interesting one. From separation and loss, I have learned a lot. I have become strong and resilient, as is the case of almost every human being exposed to life and to the world. We don't even know how strong we are until we are forced to bring that hidden strength forward.” ~Isabel Allende

“Love is the total absence of fear. Love asks no questions. Its natural state is one of extension and expansion, not comparison and measurement.” ~Gerald Jampolsky

“A truly creative person rids him or herself of all self-imposed limitations.” ~Gerald Jampolsky

Nature continually inspires and after a long winter she never disappoints me.  Here on my farm the snow still lingers in pockets of the forest, the ground heaves in certain places with the last of the frost; the farm is on the north side of a gentle hill so is the last stronghold of moisture.  None of that matters as there are definitive signs that spring is here; the song birds returned a few weeks ago, the trumpeter swans and geese fly overhead, green creeps into the plants and the doe, with her last season offspring, has returned to look longingly through the high fence into the botanical garden.  All of these signs tell me that my world is full of hope and that optimism is available in the simple and the everyday. Mother Nature will not be deterred, no matter how difficult it is to give birth to a new season.

May’s energies bring a sprinkling of optimism within the collective consciousness.  It will not be full blown but there will be more gradual moments as we navigate our life challenges.  We are coming out of inner loneliness that introspection creates; there was much deep cellular cleansing that needed to be done before we could expand more into our divine Self.  Coming out of a long, dark winter, this next phase is going to allow us the opportunity of expansion; the 4th Realm of our learning is beginning. This month brings the discovery of deeper aspects of our wisdom (6th chakra), our power (3rd chakra) and our inner divinity (7th chakra).  The 4th Realm phase of Ascension starts on May 4th and end on August 7th, 2018.

During May our spiritual task is to release congested thoughts, be more secure in who we are, and be more free from hidden agendas.  We will be required to follow our inner guidance, release depression around uncertainty and circumvent internal circular dialogue so that we can connect with our heart; it’s desires are the key to the next steps of our future.

We will be challenged to clear our mind to receive divine inspiration and guidance through the 7th chakra, allowing for greater discernment and impartiality.  Ultimately we are attuning to awareness of higher spiritual realities, thus quickening our spiritual awakening.

The Sage archetype  is the prime archetypal energy that we embrace in May.  We continue to bridge the intellect and the intuition so we may live according to our soulful and spiritual needs, and of taking the time to process and integrate our life experiences.  The Sage draws heavily on personal experience and inner knowing to navigate the twist and turns of life. Balancing clear thinking and clear feeling, valuing and feeling connected to the earth, feeling love and inner pain, having close relationships, honouring one’s physical body equally with the mind, and learning from one’s mistakes all are part of embodying the Sage archetype.  We continue to learn to flow through crisis with grace and calm and to co-create with a clear, pure vision.



Psychospiritual and Psycho-physical symptoms for May:  We will still have physical and emotional cleansing; it will ebb and flow.  Fatigue, grieving, bursts of anger, uncertainty, self-doubt (Wounded Child issues), achey joints, head pressure/headache, blurry eyes, stiff shoulders and neck, digestive disturbance and more vivid dreaming are the main symptoms this month.  There will be growth and transformation during the moons and upcoming meteor shower on May 6/7. It will be a busy spring and summer  that needs us to be present- so make it count, focus on what you really want to do as we need equal parts creative/rest/connect to nature/socialize, equal parts action, “work”, do, manifest, inner reflection. Be like the cycles of nature and learn when to act, and when to rest.

Archetypes for May:  Sage (Wisdom, Intuition), Spiritual Warrior (Selfless Impeccability, Divine Choices), Warrior (Balanced Power, Self Truth),  Priest/Priestess (Mystical Expansion, Inner Divinity).  Focusing on the 3rd, 6th and 7th chakras.

Cosmic Dates for May

May 6/7: Eta Aquarid Meteors
The best time to see shooting stars from the Eta Aquarid meteor shower is in the early morning, just before dawn, on May 6 .  More illumination emerges.

May 15 - New Moon in Taurus  - Your intentions become your reality and infinite possibility exists, bring your dreams into reality by focusing your thoughts.  Circumstances may have knocked you off your balance, so slow down or stop, listen to your heart beat and connect to your wisdom to help you move forward.

May 29 - Full Moon in Sagittarius - Growth, transformation and wholeness.  Be receptive to what is happening around you. Look for signs to guide you toward the proper action when the opportunity you have been waiting for arises.  We expand and move forward.
