The energy in and around us is moving at break-neck speed. So mind your steps. I literally lost an entire day this week. Whew!! 

There are many shifts and changes happening swiftly without warning spiritually, energetically, physically and globallyplanetary movements. And we are being asked to adjust with them as these changes are here to assist us if we allow them to. 

Be very mindful of what you are focused on dear Indigos as the current energies we are in are strong. Whatever you are focused on, be it what you don’t want or what you do want to manifest it will come about quite quickly. So I encourage you to focus on what you love and the power of love, NOT what you fear. 

Make sure you drink plenty of water!! Stay hydrated. When exercising, pay attention to your bodily movements and do not overexert yourself, take breaks. Be easy. Do your best not to fight the changes as they occur or to stop them from happening. This is a most powerful time to allow the changes to take place.  “Be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind. ” Romans 12:2 The Bible

In terms of how these planetary movements will affect people and the planet Earth, it’s important to remember that astrology is a tool for self-reflection and personal growth. While the movements of the planets can influence our energy and emotions, we always have free will and the power to create our reality. It’s up to us to use these celestial events as an opportunity for growth and transformation.

Firstly, let’s discuss the lunar eclipse for today May 5th, 2023. 

The lunar eclipse that occurred today, May 5th, 2023, was visible from many parts of the world. Exactly when the lunar eclipse will be visible depends on where you are located but Time and Date says the penumbral eclipse will begin on May. 5 at 10:11 a.m. EST (1511 GMT), the maximum eclipse will be reached at 12:22 p.m. EST (1722 GMT) and the penumbral eclipse will end at 14:31 p.m. EST (1931 GMT). The overall duration of the eclipse is 4 hours and 18 minutes. 

A lunar eclipse happens when the Earth passes between the Sun and the Moon, casting its shadow on the Moon. This can only happen during a full moon, and the eclipse can be partial or total depending on the alignment of the three celestial bodies. During a total lunar eclipse, the Moon appears to turn reddish-orange, which is why it’s also called a “blood moon.”

We are currently under the energy of  Full Flower Moon: Lunar Eclipse and this energy will affect each one of us differently for approximately 6 months. 

In terms of astrology, a lunar eclipse is a powerful time for releasing what no longer serves us. It’s a time to let go of negative patterns, beliefs, and emotions and make space for new beginnings. This lunar eclipse occurred in the sign of Scorpio, which is associated with transformation and rebirth. So, it’s a good time to reflect on what needs to change in your life and take action towards making those changes.

planetary movementsEmotions may be running amok

In astrology, the Moon represents our emotions, intuition, and inner world, while the Sun represents our ego, identity, and outer world. During a lunar eclipse, these two opposing forces are in tension, creating a powerful energy that can bring about transformation and change.

Scorpio is a water sign that is associated with transformation, intensity, and depth. It’s ruled by Pluto, the planet of power, control, and regeneration. When the Moon is in Scorpio, we may feel more emotional, intuitive, and introspective. Scorpio is also a sign that is associated with death and rebirth, so this lunar eclipse can bring about powerful transformations in our lives.

During a lunar eclipse in Scorpio, we’re being asked to let go of what no longer serves us and embrace change. This may involve confronting our deepest fears, desires, and motivations. It’s a time for shedding old patterns and beliefs and stepping into our power.

In terms of relationships, this lunar eclipse may bring up intense emotions and conflicts that need to be resolved. Scorpio is a sign that is associated with intimacy and vulnerability, so this can be a time for deepening our connections with others.

Overall, the lunar eclipse in Scorpio is a powerful time for transformation and growth. By embracing the energy of this eclipse, we can release what no longer serves us and step into our power and authenticity. It’s important to be gentle and patient with ourselves during this time, as the changes that are happening may be intense and challenging, but ultimately, they will lead to growth and transformation.

Assess what is no longer serving you

This is also a good time to assess those areas where we may be feeling eclipsed more closely in our own lives and ask ourselves some deep questions. Why are we holding on to these things, people, places, ideas, beliefs, concepts or thoughts which are no longer serving us? Maybe it is time to forgive and move on, let go and  God do the heavy lifting.  Time to ascend up to a higher vibration; even if it’s just one step higher, that is progress. 

planetary movement Moving on to Pluto and its retrograding aspect

Yeah , I know all of this retrograding happening at once can feel overwhelming.   

Pluto retrograde began on May 1 in Aquarius, and will move into Capricorn on June 11, and last until October 10. The planet goes retrograde every year for around five to six months, so we’ve gone through this astrological happening many times before. It’s just this year there is alot more planetary movement going on all at the same danged time!

Pluto is the planet of transformation and represents power, control, and the subconscious mind. When Pluto is in retrograde, its energy is turned inward, and we may find ourselves reflecting on our deepest desires, fears, and motivations. This can be a time of intense self-discovery and transformation, but it can also bring up some uncomfortable emotions and situations. It’s essential to be patient and gentle with ourselves during this time.

However, when Pluto is retrograde, its effects are more internal, psychological, and emotional. The planet named for the God of the Underworld will challenge you to check — and ideally address — YOUR OWN toxic, negative, and self-destructive behaviors, patterns, and belief systems.

Mercury in Retrograde

Mercury in retrograde, which began April 21, 2023 and will continue through May 14th, is a well-known astrological event that occurs three to four times a year. It happens when the planet Mercury appears to move backward in its orbit from our perspective on Earth. Mercury is the planet of communication, technology, and travel, and when it’s in retrograde, we may experience miscommunications, delays, and technical glitches. It’s important to be extra careful when signing contracts or making important decisions during this time. planetary movements

However, it’s also an excellent time for introspection and revisiting old ideas or projects that you may have abandoned. I like to call it the time of the re words, reflect, revise, release, rejuvenate, remember, reconnect, remove and so on. What re words can you add on your own?

Venus in Cancer

Finally, Venus in Cancer is a transit that will begin May 7th to June 5th, 2023.. Venus is the planet of love, beauty, and pleasure, and when it’s in Cancer, it’s a time for nurturing and emotional connections. Cancer is a water sign that represents the home, family, and emotions, so this transit may bring a focus on these areas of our lives. It’s a good time to prioritize self-care and to connect with loved ones.

This aspect will definitely assist you with being more loving to ourselves and those around you even with all of the wicky wacky things that may be taking place in our lives. 

In conclusion, the lunar eclipse, Pluto in retrograde, Mercury in retrograde, and Venus in Cancer are all significant astrological events that can bring about transformation, introspection, and emotional connections. By tuning into these energies and using them to guide our actions and decisions, we can create a more fulfilling and purposeful life.
