May, the home of both Taurus and Gemini seasons, vibrates to the number 17/8 this year. Number 8 global months are about getting everything you deserve, cosmically. That is to say, that you will reap the rewards or setbacks that are in direct relation to what you have been putting out into the universe. 8 being the number of manifestation, this month is a good time to work on your mindset and attitude especially in regards to money (and death tbh). How are you showing up for the world? How are you showing up for yourself? With a little hope you'll be able to create abundance this month, granted that abundance is something that you want.
The number 17/8 is influenced by the tarot card The Star, a card about coming home and surviving the long night. If 2019 has felt like a dark time for you, know that this month is here to usher you into new territory. Being influenced by Taurus season to start off with, this May is about settling into a happy and healthy routine. Follow the things that bring you joy and watch as they create more inner, untouchable joy. Once you have created joy within yourself you'll be feeling into the high vibe 17/8.
On May 4th we have the Taurus new moon and this day vibrates to 21/3. If you've been keeping up with these forecasts then you'll know that the number 21/3 has been coming up a lot. March, April, and now May have all had their new moons vibrate to 21/3, so what lesson are we being guided to learn?
21/3 is a big shift; It's like a long stretch up to the sky. This number asks us to expand far beyond the limits we originally perceived. It asks us to dream big and prepare for the next adventure. Expand, expand, expand! We are being called to stand with one foot in the past and one foot in the future. What lessons have you learned this year? What is the future you are planning for, and how can you integrate both into the present moment? That's the repeating lesson: live in the moment, fully instructed by your past and your visions for the future.
This is a good day to reflect on how far you've come and then make an action plan for where you intend to go, but recognize that the Universe may take the wheel at any moment. This is a day of learning, dreaming big, and believing in your growth.
On May 6th Mercury moves into Taurus and that day vibrates to 23/5. The number 5 is about creation and passion, so we may be feeling extra spicey today. There is a possibility that you could receive an important message from someone who is older or holds a higher social standing than you. As this is Taurus in the planet of communication, this message may come in the form of a handwritten note or face to face conversation. If there is someone who's brain you want to pick, I'd suggest taking them out to eat at the new local hip restaurant or instagramable cafe. Be open to whatever change is coming your way.
This is a good day to explore creatively. Do something different. Change up your routine by trying food from a country you've never been to, going to an open mic night, taking a salsa dance class, or going to a modern art museum. Just do something that can be enjoyed with the 5 senses, explore with your creative or sexual side.
For some of us, Mother's day falls on the 12th of May this year and it vibrates to the number 29/11. This is a collaborative and social number. I suggest you take your mom to a paint night or something of the like. Creativity and socializing are emphasized.
Now, this is a master number vibration. Be aware that if you don't have a great relationship with your mom, or other family members that you may see that day, tensions are likely to rise. Allow this to be a learning moment. What can I learn about my family and this situation?
There is also a good business vibe to this number, so if you have no connection with family or mother, this is a good day to make money moves. Download an investment app, set wealth goals, learn about using leverage, ask your dad for help (if you have that kind of connection with your dad).
Taurus enters the planet of Love on the 15th and vibrates to the number 32/5. Now 5 is generally the number of change, possibilities, creativity, art, imbalance, and indulgence. I'd suggest you lean into that indulgence vibe since luxuriating in the 5 senses is what Taurus is all about.
This particular vibration lends itself to celebration of self. You're likely to receive a compliment. Especially from a parent, family member, or boss, someone who holds some sort of authority. Even if you don't get a special recognition or shout out, spend today giving yourself thanks, you've made it this far after all!
Mars enters Cancer the very next day and vibrates to the number 33. This is a master number vibration so prepare for an upset. I use the term upset because I have a feeling that more than a few of us will be shedding some tears today. Maybe they're sad tears but they could also very well be angry tears. I sense a break up of some sort is on the horizon for some of us, but what's important to remember with a master number vibration is that it is very necessary to let this thing go in order to level up. It's also ok to cry and eat a tub of (vegan) ice cream or an order of extra large fries. It's called self care hunny, look it up.
33 is the master healer, so whether you focus on healing yourself or others today, do it with your whole heart. If a friend needs you to move help them move, do it. In fact, if someone you love requires any thing that takes force or aggression today, it is divinely guided for you to do it. That is to say that doing it will feel great and possibly lead to that beautiful feeling of everlastingness and oneness with the Universe.
The moon will be full and bright in dark and mysterious Scorpio on the 18th, what a week for planetary movement! This day will vibrate to the number 35/8 and 8 just so happens to be the scorpio number! I love when things line up ever so nicely like this.
So this moon is about releasing the negative stories you hold around money, success, power, and death. This is the ultimate rebirth moon. The number 35/8 is all about using your last bits of strength to grow and lean into change, how fitting. That is to say that we're all going to be feeling quite tired for this particular moon phase, but what can be learn from the lethargy? Some of us will learn to love the tiredness and others will learn how to better prioritize our tasks. If there's one thing Scorpio knows its that the key to success is to work smarter, not harder.
This is a good day to devote some time to reflection. It could be done through journaling, smoking pot, or getting into an insanely deep conversation with someone you respect.
On the 21st of May the Sun and Mercury will be conjunct in Gemini, the sign of the curious and playful child. This day will vibrate to the number 38/11, yes that's right another master number day! This particular 11 is all about the love and care of others. Ask yourself, how am I putting myself fourth as a healer in this world?
This is a good day to hug and cuddle your friends and family. Reach out to a friend you haven't see in a hot minute, make sure they're ok and set up a lunch date to catch up. It might also be a great day to grab some food and head to the movies with someone you love. Today is a good day to practice listening, really listening to others. Healing can be a very simple thing if you want it to be.
Alright, for us in the US we like to take a Monday off of work and call it Memorial Day. This year it will fall on Monday the 27th and this day vibrates to the number 44/8... yup, another master number. This is going to be an intense but beautiful month.
This is a deeply stabilizing energy. Some of us may get promotions, inheritance, or come up on a great new money making opportunity. Pay attention to those opportunities today because they could influence your life in a big way.
This is a good day to make a financial plan or look into investments, spend money on your career or business, and plan for a life that is bigger than what you have now. There's an aura of feeling stuck today, but you're only held down by the scope of your dreams. Dream big.
And there you have it folks, that's the vibe of the month to come. We are going to do a lot of growing and changing, but aren't we always? I urge you not to fear a master number vibration nor a planetary retrograde, both are a necessary part of the journey we take as humans. Stay mindful and present, indulge and invest in yourself, you've got this.
