Openness and Optimism, the Mood for May.
Emma Howarth, Onolla's Moon editor.
It’s good vibes all round in the cosmos this month! It’s spring! Life is returning to something resembling normality! And there’s a sense of openness and optimism in the air! It might feel like a bit of a slow burn at your end (who’s rushing!) but better times are coming – and they’re headed your way.
New Moon in Taurus
May’s new moon falls on 11 May in the sign of Taurus – an earthy, sensual sign that’s all about self-care. Why not harness some of that fresh start new moon energy (new moons are all about setting intentions) to make a commitment to yourself, your health and wellbeing as life begins to open up again?
And those good vibes we promised? Enter Jupiter in Pisces from 13 May! Luck planet Jupiter brings all the big, expansive energy when it moves into dreamy Pisces mid month – and everyone will feel the benefit (right through to mid July). Think magical plans, next-level adventures and maybe, just maybe, a dream come true.
When Gemini season kicks off on 20 May even those of us who’ve been dragging our heels should feel tempting to frock up and get out there. Gemini is a super social sign that loves to connect, create and spark ideas. Get ready to shake off a season of solitude in style.
Full Moon in Sagittarius
By 26 May we’ll all be ready for a reboot and the full moon eclipse in adventurous Sagittarius brings just that. Full moons are all about letting go of anything that no longer serves us and revelations coming to the surface (everything is illuminated on a full moon!) and this one will be more revealing than most.
If you’re ready to step into your best life and your most inspired summer yet, the cosmos has got your back this month. It’s time to get outside, get together and get our collective spark back!
