Now that eclipse season and Mercury retrograde are behind us, May heralds a welcome grounding energy. This month promises to be more easeful, with numerous positive aspects aiding our absorption and understanding of April’s changes and surprises.

Jill will delve into celestial events in May, focusing on themes like money, security, love, beauty, and material possessions, all of which will remain in the spotlight throughout the month. Carina, on the other hand, will offer valuable tips on embracing routines, setting mindful intentions, and prioritizing self-care. These strategies will help us navigate the celestial energies with grace and resilience.
