The Themes of May
May is a powerful month that brings forth energies of growth, transformation, and evolution. This month is all about embracing change, letting go of what no longer serves us, and stepping into our power. There are several astrological events that contribute to the themes of May, including the Taurus season, the Scorpio Full Moon, and the Gemini season.
The Taurus season, which continues until May 21, offers us a sense of stability, grounding, and sensuality. Taurus is an earth sign that encourages us to slow down, connect with our senses, and appreciate the beauty of the natural world. During this season, we may find ourselves drawn to activities that bring us pleasure and comfort, such as gardening, cooking, or spending time in nature. This is also a great time to focus on our finances, material possessions, and self-worth.
On May 5th, we will experience a powerful Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio. This event brings forth intense emotions, deep transformation, and the potential for release. Scorpio is a water sign that encourages us to dive deep into our subconscious and explore our shadows. This Full Moon Lunar Eclipse invites us to let go of old patterns, beliefs, and attachments that are holding us back. It is a time of spiritual purification, transformation, and rebirth, where we can release what no longer serves us and welcome in new beginnings. This Full Moon Lunar Eclipse may bring up intense emotions, but remember that this is a powerful time to release and let go. Eclipse energy can be felt for several months before and after the event, so be patient with yourself and allow the transformation to unfold.
On May 21st, the Sun moves into Gemini at 3:09 am ET. Gemini is an air sign that brings a sense of curiosity, adaptability, and communication. During this season, we may find ourselves drawn to intellectual pursuits, socializing, and exploring new ideas. Gemini encourages us to be flexible, curious, and open-minded. This is a great time to start new projects, connect with others, and express ourselves creatively.
May is a month of growth, transformation, and evolution. The Taurus season offers us grounding and stability, the Scorpio Full Moon invites us to release and transform, and the Gemini season encourages us to explore, communicate, and adapt. As we move through this month, let us embrace these energies and use them to create positive changes in our lives.
Working with the Energies of May
May offers powerful energies for growth, transformation, and evolution. By focusing on three key areas, we can work with these energies to create positive changes in our lives.
The first area we can focus on is releasing old patterns. Take some time to reflect on what no longer serves you and release it with gratitude and compassion. This could be old habits, thought patterns, or relationships that are holding you back. You can use the energy of the Scorpio Full Moon on May 5th, which also coincides with a lunar eclipse, to dive deep into your emotions and transform any limiting beliefs. The Scorpio Full Moon is a potent time for spiritual purification, transformation, and rebirth. Allow yourself to feel any intense emotions that come up and let them go. Remember that this is a powerful time to release and let go of what no longer serves you.
The second area we can focus on is awakening our inner wisdom. Connect with your inner wisdom through meditation, journaling, or other spiritual practices. This can help you gain clarity and insight into your path forward. Take time to tune in to your intuition and listen to the guidance it offers. Allow yourself to be open to new perspectives and ideas that may come to you. This can help you see things from a fresh perspective and gain new insights into your life.
Finally, we can embrace new beginnings by setting intentions, trying new things, and being open to the unexpected. Set intentions for what you want to manifest in your life, and take inspired action towards those goals. Be willing to step out of your comfort zone and try new things, even if they feel scary or unfamiliar. This is a time to embrace change and step into your power.
Bee Spirit Animal
As we enter the month of May, we can look to the bee spirit animal for guidance and inspiration. Bees are known for their hard work and their connection to the natural world. They play a vital role in pollinating flowers and crops, helping them to grow and thrive. In many cultures, bees are seen as a symbol of community, teamwork, and the sweetness of life.
When we connect with the energy of the bee spirit animal, we can tap into its wisdom and strength. We can learn to work together with others towards a common goal, and to appreciate the beauty and abundance of the natural world. Bees remind us that small actions can have a big impact, and that by working together, we can create something beautiful and meaningful.
As we prepare for the guided meditation, we can take a moment to visualize the buzzing bee in the image at the top of the screen. We can feel their energy and their connection to the flowers and the natural world. We can allow their presence to inspire us and guide us as we connect with our own inner wisdom and embrace new beginnings.
Now, let’s take a few deep breaths and get ready to dive into the energies of May.
Before beginning this guided meditation, it can be helpful to set the mood and create a sacred space. You may want to light a white candle or some incense, dim the lights, and play some soft music that resonates with you.

Beginning of Meditation
Take a few deep breaths and close your eyes. Imagine yourself standing in a beautiful garden, surrounded by blooming flowers and buzzing bees.

Feel the warmth of the sun on your skin and the gentle breeze in your hair. As you stand here, imagine a bright light shining down on you, filling you with warmth and love. Take a moment to feel this light permeating every cell of your being.
