5/15 ~ Ceres Enters CANCER (until July 23rd):
Ceres rules how we nurture and like to be nurtured. As it moves through the Signs, it also moves through your respective Houses, activating your Planets and bringing some much-needed loving, caring, nurturing, maternal energy to those zones. It takes about 5-years for Ceres to move through all 12-Signs so the last time it was in Cancer was July 2017 and (fyi) the next time will be August 2026. It’s time for adjustments & improvements to our personal containers and a concentrated dose of nourishment in our Cancer/Capricorn and Aries/Libra Departments by default. It is a once-in-5-years renewal in the Cancer zone, and this is your Emotional Health & Personal Security, how you process your feelings and secure your home base or foundation. After the couple of years that we have had, this is critical to co-create with consciously. You are supported to re-set how you feel about home & work in the context of what really feeds, nourishes & protects you and what you love and are passionate about. We should give some extra attention to improving our Emotional Well-Being in any way we can. Feed your Soul on some level, check-in with your body to see what really nourishes & feeds you on a physical level. Protect your peace by keeping good, healthy boundaries with others. Ceres in Cancer gives you the energy to nurture your Self like a loving parent would – tend to your personal needs, do some deep self-care, review all your journals and list the *Highlights* of all that you have cultivated & developed and can now release to clear space for renewed creativity.
5/15 ~ Sun (essential Self) ~square~ Saturn (responsibility):
With this energy, it is best to understand that you will have two distinct pulls within – obligation to others versus responsibility to Self. It’s not nearly as bad as it feels, however, it does bring up something we all work really hard to balance to some degree or another – SELF & OTHERS. How much do you owe your Self and how much are you obligated to others? Balance and reciprocity come to mind as guides. One of the challenges of this influence is making negative assumptions that there is no support for you when in truth, you haven’t asked for any and *help must be invited*. Saturn brings up our relationship to Time, and some people may feel restricted, as if life/other/outer is all too demanding and there’s never any time just for the individual. This activation is a push to grow. It’s time to hold your own structure in some way and reclaim your Inner Authority (also Saturn’s domain) to direct your own life. Others may find their lives falling apart because they have avoided responsibility for so long and now there’s no more “wiggle room”. Rather than have a meltdown, take a nap and resolve to wake up with a plan, a strategy for taking the next step, even if that means simply asking for help or guidance from someone older and wiser. It’s time to deepen your dedication and commit to your Self in a whole new way. Recognize any current limitations and work with the resources at hand for now. The Sun usually illuminates the core essential nature or Self, so see where you may be stuck and need to break out of a rut of some sort and trust that taking charge and making a decision and choosing a direction is *inviting help* from the Universe to support your new direction.
5/15 ~ Sun (core essential Self) ~sextile~ Neptune (vision & imagination):
This energy activates your ability to dissolve the ego (momentarily) and allow your SoulSelf to shine through! Your Spiritual center, base or practice comes up – how is it supporting you? If you’ve gotten away from your practice, this energy will make it easier to connect to your Spirit, your intuition and the vision for your life’s purpose, at this time. You may find where your contribution is most valued, when you step outside your Self and see how others’ needs are important. Find a need and fill it … in your own deliciously unique way, as you will be more giving & compassionate, naturally under this influence. Your physical energy may be low as a result of Neptune channeling the Sun’s Source Energy inwardly to re-charge your Spirit. Otherwise, it could be projections of all kinds, yours and other people’s as well. Best to spend some Intentional Solitude, preferably in Nature if/when/where possible.
5/15 ~ SCORPIO Super/Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse (#3 of 7):
The Scorpio Full Moon always shines a bright light on that which we may have overlooked, suppressed or postponed that will no longer remain hidden. Scorpio Moon can also be a very emotionally intense Moon to experience and navigate, so rather than let it plunge you to the depths of the Underworld, try to consciously choose an aspect of your Being or your life that you are ready, willing and finally, able to truly *release* and ask that the Universe support this process with ease & grace. Look at this as bigger than the usual Annual Release, now we’re talking 10 & 20-year cycles. The resonant years are: 2012-14 and 2002-05. Humans are creatures of habit and generally, resist letting go but honestly, that will only intensify & prolong any pain you may already be experiencing. Take your power back by choosing to allow whatever it is to go from your life so that it can either come back in a higher, purified form or something even better can grow up in its place that would better suit your needs at this time anyway. Remember, Scorpio is RAW Truth, don’t try to make sense of it until next month (the Sag Full Moon brings in the Higher Truth), right now, just work on surrender & acceptance as well as reclaiming your own power to direct your life. This is a potent time for consciously co-creating with the Life/Death/Life Cycle. What in/around you needs to “die” so that something new can be seeded to come into existence? This Full Moon asks you to define your deepest, core values (Taurus) and then asks: What are you willing to sacrifice (Scorpio/Power) for something of greater value to you (Taurus/Garden)? This Scorpio Full Moon will reveal many things and connect you to your own Soul’s desires, as well as fears, catalyzing the deepest of all surrenders. Some aspect of life has truly died, but only in the way that it creates space & nutrient for new life to take root. Scorpio Full Moon gives you a chance to release or compost whatever has outgrown its natural lifespan. Take some time to *cleanse & purify* your system of all that has grown toxic or run its natural course. Use this energy to release waste, debris & the nonessential and use the light of the Full Moon to bathe yourself with new life, vitality & power when it returns from its Total Lunar Eclipse – re-set for another 10 & 20-year cycle of Life, Death & Rebirth.
5/18 ~ Mars (actions & desires) ~conjunct~ Neptune (dreams & visions):
This energy is great for tapping into your intuition and acting on Its promptings. If you’re focused on your dreams at the moment, this will give you a boost of creative energy. It is time to expand your vision and play a little. This is not necessarily a time to push your body, but your imagination! How well do you do with your own actions or sense of fearlessness, passion, and desire nature? If you resist these aspects of your nature, this energy will be tough to navigate. Sometimes you can feel much like you’re walking on the bottom of the pool, instead, try to practice floating above it all rather than letting it get you down. This energy reminds us that effectiveness is more important than speed in most cases, so watch what gets you fired up and direct it consciously, be pro-active rather than re-active, use your imagination every chance you get and embrace opportunities to improvise. Be gentle & compassionate with your Self and others, honoring all wherever they may be on their chosen Path.
Relevant Reflections: 2010 Jupiter + Uranus in ARIES:
This is another relevant throw-back that I think you will enjoy! We covered the back-and-forth over the Pisces/Aries cusp and all the advice & support applies now.
What was also fascinating was listening to the energies of Uranus in Aries. I remind you here that when you’re “in-it” – it is hard to know what’s-what but now that we are on the other side of it, you may be able to recognize where the *Radical Shifts* happened in your own Aries Dept of Life during 2010-2019.
5/19 ~ Sun (core essential Self) ~trine~ Pluto (purification & transformation):
This energy makes you want to get things done, by any means necessary and you may tend to come on a little strong – but it’s all good. The work you want to do, is work that needs to be done and in doing it and facing things head-on, you will gain insights about your Self that fortify your foundation so that your life can evolve to the next level organically. This intense and powerful energy is transformative in nature and will provoke you to think deeply about your own life; what you need, desire and deserve. You may find that some aspects of your life need to be reformed or released – go for it – this energy makes reform and release easier than usual. It’s a good time to make an impression or an impact on others, but be sure to keep it on the Highest level possible. Any actions or statements used to manipulate others for selfish gain can/will backfire on you in a big way. This is a positive, uplifting, transformative energy – use it as such to clear the debris and create the life you were born to live.
5/19 ~ Mercury Rx (your voice) ~sextile~ Jupiter (expansion):
(2 of 3: 4/27 ~ 5/19 ~ 6/20)
Where Sun sextile Jupiter is more about YOU, this activation is more about your consciousness, ideas, thoughts & concepts (Mercury), which Jupiter expands in some way, helping you to ‘think bigger’, edit your personal Story and step up your game in some kind of way. This is also a great energy to work with if you are in school, learning something new, expanding your knowledge base or gathering new tools & information to support your goals. Your dreams are tapping you on the shoulder, demanding some attention. Mundane issues are not your concern right now, you want to figure out how to create the life you’ve been imagining. This energy also provokes within you the awareness & understanding that being generous naturally attracts generosity to you. The big picture and overall patterns which have led you to this point are being brought into the light. Feeling clear, sharp, alert and optimistic, you begin to realize that anything that you can imagine (or remember), you can also achieve.
5/21 ~ Mercury Rx (communication & self-expression) ~conjunct~ Sun (core essential Self & Source energy):
This energy will compel you to express yourself on many levels. Communication will be a focus, just make sure it is reciprocated. What I mean is two-way communication and exchange of ideas. As you initiate this new cycle of self-expression, you will have access to some powerful energy that can (and probably will) help you make a difference or an impression on others (if you need to). This is a good time to travel if possible too. However, if not physically, then mentally (through visualization) or within your own area (locally), because if you explore a new direction, you are more likely to discover something new. This energy opens you up to a download of more information than usual so pay attention! If you are solid and organized, you may even gain some much-deserved recognition from others that you have earned through your individual efforts.
