The month of May begins with the cross-quarter day Beltane, one of the eight Solar Sabbaths, that isnamed after the solar deity Bel and heralds the arrival of summer. With this festival we celebrate the fertility and growth of the season, which usually is at its peak now, symbolized by the erecting of the May-Pole. Not in this area where I currently reside though. The last few years (3 in a row) winter has been overtaxing us and spring has been late and therefore we are only seeing the first buds appearing on the trees in addition to the usual spring flowers.
In the wheel of the year, Beltane is a high-point of manifested energy, which in a ‘normal’ spring is tangible and visible everywhere and therefore, necessitates us to actualize the intentions we set at the time of the Spring Equinox. This has been only happening slowly here, but now with the Scorpio Full Moon approaching, things are heating up. We have dedicated ourselves toward a better management of our affairs and are willing and ready for the sacrifices this requires, because we are becoming more accepting of our limitations and we’re beginning to realize that some of the things or causes we used to hold sacred for a long time have lost their value. We’re evolving. These harsh winters broke our spirit and at the same time strengthened our structure, molding us into our ‘destined forms’. The more important is it that we come to understand what’s happening to us and around us instead of resisting or denying it. We now have an opportunity for self-promotion to which we can respond smartly and differently.
Tarot card of the day is “The Star”, suggesting we’re reaching for our highest potential as we let ourselves be guided by our inner shining light and also try to bring people together in a fair and ‘sisterly’ way, while appealing to the group consciousness or common cause and setting an example how each of us can help and assist the other. Therefore, we need to keep listening to this inner voice and also to our heart – we are guided by higher values and thus have the universe on our side.
