The first week of May is fairly quiet. (sigh of relief here) We could all use it. Reflect, integrate and admire the beautiful bounty around us. The Moon is in Sagittarius May 1-3, which is excellent for exploration, seeking, spirituality and optimism. The Moon travels through Capricorn May 4th through the morning of the 6th - excellent for discipline, grounding, building, and committing to one's work. The Moon enters Aquarius on the morning of the 6th, where she will stay through the late evening of the 8th. Excellent for inventiveness, innovation, experimentation and socialization.

Night of May 8th- 10th, the Moon is in Pisces - excellent for dream work, artistry, tuning into one's emotions and connection with universe. Moon in Aries May 11th through the morning of the 13th: excellent for speaking your truth, action, adventure and spontaneity. The Moon wraps up her cycle, slowing down as she enters Taurus on May 13th. Before the New Moon arrives, it's a good idea not to jam pack our schedules, as this period is best for rest and reflection.
