The theme for May is  “Mental Clarity and Inspiration”

We have just been through an energetic and emotional centrifuge and this month we get to sort out what is left and more importantly what we value and what is important to us. There may have been losses, changes, disappointments, new opportunities, sudden reversals, shocking news, situations better than expected and situations more challenging than planned for. It has been a lot, our plates are full, and now we need to take the time to reflect, review, reassess, and reset, with the goal being some mental clarity and new inspiration about our purpose and next steps.

It is a time of observing self and others with patience and receptivity. What are you manifesting? If it is more of the same as in the past that you intended to change, then you still have work to do. At this point there should be something new and different that is finding its way into your field so pay attention to what and who is knocking on your door. It may be time to explore new options and accept support coming from unexpected sources.

The mental clarity is not a thinking or overthinking process. In fact, overthinking will only lead to obsession and confusion. Mental clarity is a “knowing” without doubt that something is right or not. Higher intellectually-centered experiences of clarity and insight are possible this month, inspiring choices to shift, change and try something new. If your life feels uncertain, triggered or stirred up with still too many things on your plate, it is a good time to sort what to leave behind by using the measure of value. What is important and valuable to you? You may need to acknowledge where you have been holding space for others and what they value and ask yourself if it aligns with what is important to you. This is a deep reflection to reassess what your role is in other people’s lives leading perhaps to choices and decisions where you put yourself and what you value first.

The greatest obstacle this month is fear. We have a collective fear of the unknown, fear of being victimized, losing our freedom, abandoned, restricted, and at the deepest level annihilated. This fear can quickly eliminate any inspiration for what is possible in the unknown of the future. The antidote for fear is trust and connecting to the larger picture of evolution, the magnificent structure and organization of the universe and the grounding and nurturing aspect of the earth. Assurance and security will not necessarily come from others so look to the elements and nature to provide it for you.

Fear manifests in many ways. Some will stubbornly hang on to the old, tried and true and be miserable for it. Others will be driven by impatience. Some will, through their greed, try to amass enough “stuff” for security. Others will need to either be right no matter what or succumb to their sense of worthlessness and withdraw from life. And there are the regular victims who always blame others, and finally, those that don’t find value in life at all and join the masses of drug users and other self-destructive behaviors. These behaviors and attitudes are all based in fear and it would be wise to self-reflect, observe and make sure you are not making decisions out of fear but rather out of clarity and inspiration.

Mental clarity demands that you make time for it to manifest. We suggest a daily practice where you have a space to meditate, pray and allow for insights and knowing to become clear. It helps to have something of beauty around to support inspiration; nature, color, music and anything else you find uplifts your spirits and raises your vibration. It is also important that you get rid of or clean anything that represents old energy. Everything has a vibration and when you are striving to raise the vibration in yourself, your home and other spaces you interact with, it is important to address what may hold old patterns. It may be time to upgrade your surroundings, bring in a new piece of art, and replace things that are worn out or that you just “ended up with” that are not favorites.

How the month shows up:


You have the potential to change your life this month by sorting, revising and resetting your goals, your path and your intentions based on new clarity that is available to you if you are present, observing, and paying attention. You have the opportunity to make your life bigger according to what is important to you and what you value. The focus this month is on value. What do you value? From people to practices to possessions, experiences, routines, habits and what others place upon you as responsibilities, you will need to sort and revise and get clarity on how to restructure your life so that is supports you in a new and better way. Do you love what you do? Are you satisfied with your environment, relationships and personal expression?

Get clear on what is missing and don’t be afraid to say no to some things and to ask for others. Do you have enough of what you value in your everyday experience? If you value your alone time or your creative time or quality time with loved ones or in nature, or time for study or play, do you have enough of it? Start with baby steps to carve out time and space to begin reintroducing more of what you value and what is important to you and be inspired by the change. Inspiration is everything as it brings a higher vibration to your task. This is a month where the focus and reflection is mostly personal and there are definitely times in the month that will support a deep going within. Use them wisely without the distraction of other people’s drama.


Although this is a month where relationships will definitely go through the sorting hat, the primary relationship you are dealing with is your relationship to yourself and what your needs are based on your values and what is important. Be careful that you are not “sorting” your relationships from a place of fear or ego, but rather from a place of clarity. Stay out of judgment and blame, and always strive to come from neutrality and compassion. Any choices you make will inevitably affect others and you cannot please everyone so put yourself first and then decide carefully and pragmatically where you can compromise without losing yourself to another’s needs and agenda.

There are some situations where the responsibility (as a parent, caregiver or other karmic commitment) demands more compromise than what is comfortable. However, there is always something you can do to revise your situation by delegating and setting boundaries where you can. You may need to reevaluate what is necessary as opposed to what is expected and go from there.

As to new relationships, there can be an element of inspiration as you connect with others especially around a new opportunity, project or experience.


We may still struggle this month with the physical body especially around digestion and immune disorders. Digestion is not only around our food intake but also the intake of the energy around us, the emotional process of others, and our own emotional past. What are you trying to digest that does not belong specifically to you?

Congestion is another area that may affect your health this month. Lungs (can be related to grief), sinuses (can be related to clarity and seeing the truth), throat (can be related to communication and expressing personal needs) all may have issues and need attention this month. If you are having trouble letting go, you may feel this in your joints being stiffer than normal. The body can be a barometer of other issues going on in your life and it is wise to pay attention and treat the whole system, not only the physical but the energetic and emotional as well.

Mental health plays a big part this month and you may witness some around you having challenges with identity, self-esteem, and reconciling past trauma. Part of the reflection, re-evaluation and opportunity for a reset this month can positively affect mental health and balance, but the process to get there may be challenging and confusing at times. Be patient and have compassion with yourself as well as with others that may be struggling.


Be careful what you ask for and what you get yourself involved with and make sure it is something and with someone that you enjoy, value and feel is important in your life. There may be some projects that were in your pipeline or on your intention list that may need a re-evaluation or reset. Some clarity should be available to you about direction and where you want to put your energy. The other measuring stick in terms of business and projects is if they support your personal power or erode it. Are you involved in something that bleeds you or feeds and nourishes you? Sometimes even the most challenging work situations can be greatly rewarding and the service that you give is actually energizing and empowering.

Observe and be aware of how situations make you feel and whether there is old or stale energy that needs to be addressed. Sometimes it is a facelift that a venture needs and not a dissolution. There will be plenty of opportunity this month for reflection and re-evaluation, hopefully bringing the clarity you need to re-inspire what, how and with whom you wish to engage in your projects and business ventures.


Always supporting us in what we need, the environment will deliver a somewhat more predictable pattern to make planning a bit easier this month. With that said, the desire to go within in reflection supports keeping the adventure to home or at least an environment supportive for inner work. The need for community and community support is strong, and collaborations around environmental issues, breakthroughs, and simply being in nature together will be a focus. Group experiences, learnings and travel could be something that inspires you at this time. Do some research and make some plans but remember to keep them flexible. We will definitely see earlier and stronger seasons for rain, heat, storms and wind.

Regarding your personal environment, pay attention to anything that has “old or stale energy” and either give it a new life or pass it along to someone who will. The inspiration and clarity should energize this process.


May 1-8

This is an internal time where you may not have great clarity about whatever process you find yourself in. Trusting in the bigger picture is a factor to remember especially when things are unclear. Remember to be inspired even if it is just around something small and insignificant in your life. This is a time of some deeper excavation into what is important to you. Any stale or old energy especially in the instinctive center may be triggered as part of this excavation. (there is a good exercise for clearing the instinctive center in this month’s support audio)

Think of this time as transformational and supporting the concept of death and rebirth. What in your life is in the process of this level of transformation? When you dig deep, issues around personal power are likely to surface and it is a good time to reset your beliefs, past experiences and definitions around personal power and what it means to you

May 7

New Moon in Taurus is Tuesday, May 7 at 9:21 PM Mountain Daylight Time (MDT).

After the upheavals and stormy energies of the eclipse season and past moon cycles, this New Moon provides an opportunity for a realignment of intentions based on new clarity and assimilation. The time is more stable but don’t get complacent as unexpected events and opportunities are still possible. This is an earthy and grounded energy that can support renewal, planting the seeds of new intentions for the future, and manifesting more peace, space and tranquility in your life.

Take time during this new moon to enjoy something of life, and to taste the delights of the physical planet. Think of being nourished, grounded, revitalized, rebalanced and recharged. What may get in the way of this may be your own stubbornness and unwillingness to let go of some attachment to how things should be unfolding in your life. Especially in light of some unexpected opportunity or event, be flexible and trust the bigger picture of universal order.

May 9-16

Energy moves more quickly here but be careful you don’t over reach and make sure you act out of clarity and what is important. You may feel many responsibilities pulling you in many different directions and some confusion about where to compromise and where to set boundaries. Get clarity before you act or react. On the other hand, something you have been working on manifesting may gather momentum and support will start falling into place. Reflect during this time on your motivations for doing things and make sure you are truly inspired by what you spend your energy on otherwise it will not be successful and feel like a burden instead of a satisfied accomplishment. Be aware of what is yours and what is not yours to carry and continue sorting as you evaluate, and integrate.

May 17-23

The theme for this time frame is finding the power within. In reevaluating all of what has been triggered, healed, reset, challenged and pushed forward in your life, you gain a new foundation of power that gives you a new sense of clarity, direction and value. This is a time when you can begin to take action, gather your support and pay attention to the doors that are opening. If there are challenging times, you have a new sense of courage and inner wisdom to face them. Be practical, be consistent and be compassionate with others, especially those who may be on the other end of some important decision you made for yourself.

May 23

Full Moon in Sagittarius is Thursday, May 23 at 7:53 AM MDT.

May 24-31

This is an important time frame to honor expansion and to welcome the higher intellectual experiences of insight and mental clarity. This is an extroverted and social time where communication is highlighted and collaborations and connections between people are solidified. Especially if you have agreements for support or working together, the inspiration to do so is heightened and support begins to fall into place. This is also a time frame where manifesting can come easily around what is truly aligned with you.

Make sure you are truly inspired every step of the way. If not, you will not sustain the energy necessary to manifest. Tell the truth and trust your clarity regardless of any challenge it may present to others. When you step into your power you may not necessarily be able to accommodate or please everyone. Remember that you should come first, with the exception of karmic agreement and other commitments to responsibilities not yet completed. You know what those are and can work around them.

Take some time to enjoy others in your life in play, fun, celebration and social interaction.

Have a great month!
