On this day, the May pole is one of the aspects used to celebrate the pre-beginning of Summer. In many cultures there are beautiful examples of the coming together of man and woman to create new life. This festival is about celebration and drawing forth abundance. Decorating the may pole is a clear way to celebrate the feminine and masculine aspects coming together. We can see this in India with the yoni lignum statues and the Lakota pipe. When we bring together the pipe stone and the stem, the feminine and masculine pieces we create a new being and that being allows our prayers to travel to the Creator.
Full moon in Virgo. Venus in Retrograde. Spring in full swing. The veils are very thin my friends. I am getting tons of immediate synchronicities. When we experience synchronicities, a term coined by Jung, it’s kind of like Universe giving you a high-five, fist bump and yeah, affirmation you are on the right track! Keep going.
Virgo is the ruler of health, wellness and cleanliness; the perfect aid in our Spring Cleaning!
This is a GREAT time to put your wishes to the universe for what you want to manifest or let go in your life. Do you have a full plate already? Maybe you can release some responsibilities to the wind and be open to some clearing of your physical space, or your schedule. If you have already cleared the way maybe you’re ready for the next big leg of your journey. Get in touch with what is important to you and re-committ yourself to that which is in your heart.
Speaking of Venus in Retrograde, every time the Earth and Venus are side by side in this video there is a retrograde moment. As you can see Venus doesn’t actually go backward but the pausing of side by side makes it appear to go backwards when we on Earth look up at Venus in the sky. So it is accepted that the “normal” flow of energy in relationship between Earth and Venus pauses and may appear to go backward or be reversed. Retrograde periods are really just calling us to pause our normal routines and habits and maybe make some changes based on past behaviors. Take a good look but don’t stare! Venus in retrograde is a time to reflect slowly and adjust your path in love and relationships, to put it simply.
