girl throwing papers in the air - May & 5 - time for a changeComing off the intense energy of April, we’re all ready for a change!

And May is all about change.

Change is good, even if it feels scary at the time.

We evolve and grow through the changes that take place in our life.

May is a 5 vibration which is about Freedom, Flexibility, Adventure, Change, Travel, Communication, Curiosity, Romance, Adaptability, Versatility and Free-spirited


One way you can use this energy of change is allowing yourself to feel the emotions that are coming up for release instead of trying to ignore them or push them away.

Our planet and all of us are undergoing some massive changes as we are evolving.

We’re in that place where the old ways are breaking down and the new ways haven’t come online yet. So it is like being part of a huge experiment.

And yes, it can feel scary and stressful.

The 5 vibration of May is supporting you to allow the changes to happen, and adapt to them.

Thinking on your feet, being flexible, letting go of preconceptions, and getting comfortable with not knowing what comes next.

May resonates with change, flexibility, freedom and curiosity.

This is a great month to travel, explore, and learn about different countries and cultures.

This month communication is heightened. And if you like to perform in any way – speak, sing, dance, create, both May and June support the creative arts.

If you like to write or want to write, May may be the perfect time to work on your book and make excellent progress.

After the somewhat constricting effect of April and for those who have felt house-bound by the cold weather of the winter May’s call to freedom will be a welcome change.

You may feel like you are chomping at the bit to get out from under whatever has been holding you hostage… be it a situation, your beliefs, your fears, or something else.

This month the energy is inviting you to lighten up, have fun, be flexible,

get excited (in a positive way!) and be adventurous. 

Embrace change - couple embracing at train stationChange is inevitable, if you embrace it and adapt to it, it will support you.

If you resist it and fight against it, it will drag you along.

You might feel some romance in the air this month too. Go ahead and, ignite the spark of romance in your current relationship and in your life.

Take off for a romantic weekend or night out. Read a book or watch a movie that has some juicy romance in it.

And one of the best romantic tools you have available to you is your imagination… go play in this for a while!

We start off the month in the Earth sign of Taurus.

So change or the need to be flexible and adapt might be on the home front, or it might be dealing with your sense of stability and security.

You might need to look at what practical changes need to be made. You might also look at where you are over-indulging yourself or another and make some adjustments there.

You might find yourself wanting things that make you feel good

and really aren’t all that good for you!

On the 21st we move into Gemini, an Air sign.

Gemini increases the communication and creativity aspects of the 5 vibration. It also adds to the fickleness and change for the sake of change aspect of the 5.

So if you are initiating the changes, just be sure you are changing that which needs to be changed and not changing everything on a whim or because you feel like busting out of where you are.

The shadow of the 5 vibration brings in elements of restlessness, impulsiveness, fickleness, jealousy and being temperamental.

This month, work with the energy of change to start creating more of what you desire in your life.

Be flexible with the things that show up in your life.

Truly learn to go with the flow and adapt to situations, events, and day-to-day things… therein is a happier path.

If you fight and resist what is going on, it will just add to your frustration levels.

Do things that make you feel free and alive.

Be aware that schedules and plans are likely to change at a moment’s notice! 

If you love to plan out your days and months, this month, allow for flexibility, as appointments may shift with the breeze.

Some questions to ask or journal about:

  • What do I need to change in my life?
  • Where do I need to be more flexible?
  • What feels constricting to me?
  • Where, when or why do I feel bored?
  • Where would I like to travel to?
  • How can I add more romance to my life?

  • What do I want to write about?

  • What would I like to create?
  • What changes am I resisting? Why?
  • What do I need in order to adapt to these changes?
  • Where am I being rigid?
  • Where am I being rebellious? Why?
  • Where am I being impulsive or indulgent?

  • What would make me feel more free?
