  • Healthy boundaries around eating + spending money
  • Enjoying simple pleasures + taking care of yourself
  • Clearing away clutter + stabilizing before June/July eclipse season
Wednesday May 1st: May Day ~ Buy someone flowers anonymously!

Saturn goes retrograde conjunct the South Node (happens again July 5th and Sept 28th).

  • For the next six months, we’ll clear away what’s excessive, let go of anything that has a draining effect on us + streamline. Review past choices of where we feel bogged down or heavy.
  • Engage in creative thinking, problem solving, creative solutions. Maximize what’s working!
NEW MOON in Taurus on Saturday, May 4th

Theme: Enjoy the simple things.

Aspects: “More Ferdinanding!”: Be Ferdinand the peaceful bull. Rest + relax + enjoy simple pleasures when life gets chaotic. Venus encourages us to deepen into a sense of our authentic value in the world 

Illuminates: Stripping away excess. Awareness of where you experience conflict.

Shadow-side: Pay attention to Taurus-related themes like: money, health, properties, material things.


  • Rx: Keep it simple. Eat chocolate in nature.
  • Take yourself out to an exquisite meal, for no reason. And I really hope you don't leave without ordering dessert. ; )
Sunday, May 5th: Mars + Jupiter Tension

Try to find a new point of view if there are conflicts. Take your time making decisions.

Tuesday, May 7th: Heart Pressure

You may experience some restriction, loneliness + pressure around love.Or you may feel conflicted between a desire to work hard vs. fall in love.Review your budget and make practical decisions around money.Keep making romantic gestures, but if you get no response, pull back/cut it off.

Wednesday, May 8th: Electrical jolt!

Uranus in Taurus gives us an electrical jolt, resulting in ah-ha’s moments, connections + creative ideas. Or it could lead to talking too much or speaking without thinking first. Ground yourself, drink water, eat your good fats + proteins.

Thursday, May 9th: Venus/Jupiter

Look at how far you’ve come in your relationships. Reflect on all the relationship work you did during the past 2 lunar cycles with Libra patterns.

Saturday, May 11th: Earth Trine

Make lists, budgets + project plans. Put some stability under your ideas. Look to hindsights around what’s worked well in the past to give you ideas about what will work going forward.

Wed, May 15th - June 8th: Venus in Taurus + Mars in Cancer

Venus (love + $) in Taurus feels like: Harmony, growth, pleasure, mud baths, flowers, chocolate, music, poetry, good smells + massage. 

Mars (action + will) in Cancer feels like: moody, sensitive, soggy, steamed up (“turd flies into your swimming pool”, hah!); martial arts in the ocean.

Mars goes ‘out of bounds’ (swings way out of orbit) feels: a little volatile, out of control, rogue. We may feel defensiveness or moodiness. Create good emotional boundaries. This phenomenon is giving us a little preview of the wild summer eclipses. You can use the energy to create a new home vibe.

Look at Cancer in your personal natal chart to see how exactly it affects you and the area in which you’ll want to develop more emotional connection + self-reliance vs. defensiveness.

Thursday, May 16th

Focus on productivity and be pragmatic.

Tuesday + Wednesday, May 16th + 17th:Mercury into Aries

Mercury leaves Pisces and goes into Aries. Communication becomes more fiery, blunt, assertive/aggressive, sharp and quick.

FULL MOON in Scorpio on Saturday, May 18th

Theme: Look for intimacy, not intensity.

Illuminates:Self-soothing. Ability to take care of your body. Cover yourself in mud or a clay mask to detox. Ask yourself: what am I hiding?

Shadow-side: Possibly a weekend of emotional intensity: “Sex, lies + videotape” ~ emotional depths, secrets, things that are hiding, fabrications, hidden communications.

Tuesday, May 21st: Sun goes into Gemini + Cazimi

Socializing, fun, communication, learning new things, cross-pollination, networking.

Cazimi: sparkly, magic meteor moment that feels like a messenger. Experience fresh insights + levity. Be a trickster. Play more. Put a whoopie cushion in someone’s chair.

4th Week in May

Chiron activates wounded healer pain points - yay!

5th Week in May

Mercury goes ‘out of bounds’ - outside its usual orbit, which can feel confusing, i.e. double time trickster energy.

May 29, 30, 31st: T-Square in tense mutable signs.

Be careful about getting caught up in fantasies.


To get a jump start on stabilizing for the shifts these cosmic shifts will instigate, below are the flowers I recommend for this lunar cycle:

CATALYST ELIXIR ~ Flowerevolution Meadow Cabbage Elixir:

Magnifies your ability to:

  • Rewrite the script so that big accomplishments are not depleting
  • Take risks, expect good results, put action toward you top priorities + forward your vision
  • Soften resistance to fear of unknown + accept help from others


  • Feeling alone or that you have to be the one to do everything
  • Patterned behavior that depletion is the only way to accomplish a big vision
  • Feeling stuck or spinning - not getting anywhere
  • Confusion around how to make your vision a reality

*This elixir is only available in our 6-month Flowerevolution Program.

SUPPORT ELIXIR ~ Infinite Love Collection:

Magnifies: Unconditional love for yourself & others; attract love + affection, enhanced magnetism, attractiveness + charisma. Magnifies gentleness, compassion, softness + receptivity.

Dissolves: Irritation, being hard on yourself, hard heart, feeling attacked, resentment, anger, jealousy, codependency, giving away all your energy to others and forgetting your own needs, past trauma, breaking through old patterns

Thank you for this May forecast…Moonshine always helps me navigate (and harness!) the energies of the month, and with the help of flower essences, helps bring ease. <3
