We start the month with Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto all Retrograde. It’s only Mercury that will go direct on May 3rd and will be in the Sign of Aries until May 16th, when Mercury will move into Taurus.
For these last few days of Mercury Rx, what out for a sharp tongue! You could be the one doing the shouting or being nasty or it can be done to you. If someone is raising their voice to you, raise your hand and say “Stop. I don’t think you realize you are shouting at me.” Most of the time the person will stop as it’s a natural inclination when someone holds up their hand to you. Depending upon whether you are in the work place or at home will determine how you handle someone speaking to you in an inappropriate manner.
If you are at work and they continue, hold up your hand again and say “Please stop speaking to me in that tone. When you can speak to me in a professional manner, I’ll be at my desk, let me know.” Don’t be fearful of doing this. Most people will not know what to do and are likely to calm down.
If you are at home and it’s one of your kids you can still hold up your hand and say “Stop, I don’t like the way you are talking to me. When you are ready to talk with me in a civilized tone, I’ll be in my bedroom. You can come and knock on the door when you are ready to apologize.” Of course, this is for children who are teenagers and up. Your 2-year-old is not going to understand!
This is your opportunity to set boundaries at work and at home as there is a ton of Aries energy running around. Aries energy can be playful and want to start new things, but they can also be spiteful and nasty with their words.
You’ll still need to cross the t’s and dot the i’s for the first few days of the month. Just to be on the safe side, check all written communications so that you are clear about contracts and legally written documents.
Mars moved into the Sign of Gemini in late April and will stay there for the entire month of May. Mars, represents where we expend energy as well as a focus on our work life. With Mars in Gemini expect lots of written and verbal communications at work. You may be asked to present information to other employees in the form of a Power Point demonstration. You could also be asked to give a talk to other employees or higher ups in your company on your specialized subject.
If you are looking for a job, this is a great time to get your resume updated and to call on companies where you would like to work. Don’t worry there are no openings advertised. Get ahead of them advertising and call and ask if they have anything available that would suit your skills, or can you send your resume. The fact that you are reaching out during this Mars in Gemini will help you to be remembered as a go-getter and someone they will contact soon.
For those of you who are self-employed or moving in that direction, this is when having your written Mission and Vision for your business needs to be completed. One of the resources I used when I first created my business Mission and Vision was the book “The Path” by Laurie Beth Jones. In that book, she will take you through a series of questions that allow you to gain clarity around who you want to work with, what you want to work with them on and how you want to do that.
I had originally used this book about 2 years after I started my business, which has now been going for 20 years. I looked at the book recently, when recommending it to a client and noticed that the words I used back then are nearly identical to the ones I use in my business now. The clearer you are about your Mission, Vision, Who, What and How, the easier it will be for the Law of Attraction to work in your life, allowing you to have a business that is successful financially, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
Here is my Mission. What does yours look like?
“Empowering a Billion Souls to Evolve – Providing insight, clarity, direction and guidance for those who choose to evolve.”
Whether you work for yourself or someone else, having a business/career Mission will guide you into the correct opportunities and environments that allow you to grow in your career.
Venus, the planet of what we love, who we love and how we love will be in the Sign of Aries for the month of May. If you are looking to embark on a new relationship, this could be the month you find what you are looking for. For those of you already in relationships allow yourself to be spontaneous. Is it time for a weekend trip to a hotel to get away from the kids? How about shopping and site-seeing with your girlfriends in New Mexico?
New friends can enter your life this month. These friends bring opportunity for growth and excitement. If you are involved with friendships where someone is complaining a lot, then it’s time to step away from those relationships for now, so that you can experience a break from the negative energy.
Don’t forget that Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto are still Retrograde. You will be dealing with the Karma you have created in the past few years. You will be either reaping the rewards of dealing with the consequences of the choices you have made.
For those of you who are 58-60, and have your Saturn in Sagittarius, you are still in your 2nd Saturn Return. What issues do you still need to work out before December 17th, 2017?
Jupiter will ask you to make certain that the relationships you are in are helping you grow spiritually and emotionally.
Pluto in Capricorn asks you to turn inwards and take a long hard look at your work area. Are you happy with the type of work in which you are engaged? Do you enjoy the environment of the place in which you work? Are you looking to create a business in the second stage of your life? You will be wanting to have more control over how you spend your time and energy. Be patient with yourself. Change takes time.
I like to say to my clients “Life is not resolved in a half-hour comedy, a one-hour drama, or a two-hour movie. Making changes takes time and patience and can only happen when you make a start!”
The New Moon in Gemini occurs on May 25th, 2017. Look out for a separate communique closer to the time, where I will offer ideas, suggestions and information on the type of wishes to write.
COMING UP IN JUNE 2017
The New Moon in Cancer occurs on June 23rd, 2017. Venus will move into the sensual sign of Taurus. Mars, your energy flow, will move into the emotional sign of Cancer and Jupiter in Libra will go Direct on June 10th.
