I tap into the collective Akashic field including planetary retrogrades and a group of guides I work with called the Ascension Awareness Collective to gather information for these forecasts. Take what resonates and leave the rest. Let your inner guidance show you the key aspects to pay attention to.
May: Clarity through our own inner knowing and embodiment of the new path forward. Claim who you are.
May presents us with some even more intense energies as we continue this accelerated ascension. Overall the energy of May is one of deepening support,clarity, coherence on our vision and commitment/ creation.
Intentions are important for May as well. It is time to get crystal clear on what we want and focus on it.
We have been getting ready for this for a while. Many of us have been doing the work of personal healing, releasing our resistance and limiting programs for years so that we are poised to immerse ourselves in this energy for full benefit.
We have entered retrograde season so the first thing I must mention is the planetary influences. I’m not an astrologer by any means, but when planets go retrograde it’s like they call me. They’re like “hey we are about to hit the rewind button can you get this message out there for us, so people are using the momentum to get what they need for their path?”
So here we go, right now we’ve had Neptune in retro since January, and basically all year so the theme of looking within, advancing spirituality from our connection within remains a theme.
Pluto has also just entered retro. This is one of my favorite retrogrades because of the potential to go really deep. We can really dig into our shadows (and I encourage you to check out my Pluto Retrograde Ascension Kit and Shadow Healing journey in my membership website) When we dig into our shadows during Pluto retro we are also working with creative energies. It’s like this new moon vibe with this retro, where we are encouraged to connect to the stillness, the darkness (in a really great way) within, almost like this energy of the womb. We are encouraged into this energy because there are creations within us that are ready to be seen, and ready for us to put the seeds of intention into the ground. If we have been doing our shadow work, or deepening it, that inspiration and potential is within you.
Pluto wants what isn’t working in our life to be broken apart and rebuilt with Divine highest potential built in. This is where that shadow aspect comes in. This brilliance and new insight/ creation can be obscured by the shadow and we might feel it is not safe to go to this dark place for creation. So in healing the shadow, in taking notice of our limiting programs and ways of thinking and taking an active role to let those go and embrace who we are – we are positioned to play with the stillness, clarity and creativity that has always been within us and is now further activated.
So this is the energy we are working with as we go into May. This is what we are presented with.
As we enter May (especially in the Northern Hemisphere) we also feel the Beltane/ May Day energy. We can start to tap into this energy on May 1, and it carries it’s potency through until about the 7th or 8th. So again we are presented with the theme of creativity, more accurately Divine co-creation. creativity of the Universe. We can tap into the growing light and can simply feel this energy by visualizing yourself as a tree. A beautiful, expansive deeply rooted tree. Feel into how deep you can allow your roots to go, and how powerful and nourishing having the light increase is. Feel the balance of the dark roots and depth and the expansive flowing light above. Feel and know that as you go deeper you can go higher.
There is so much celebration energy at this time of year, as there should be when you are flowing with creativity. Embrace the joy of creating the unknown. A powerful focus for this first week of May is to get the journal out, spend some time going within and journal out streams of whatever is coming through for you right now.
Still in this first week of May we also amplify things with a Full Moon. This is amplifying all the energy we are already feeling. So doing journeys, meditations and expressing that energy out onto paper or any medium is so very supported. We are encouraged to connect into the energy of water to help with the flow so a Full Moon bath, or hangout out by running water will encourage that universal flow and self healing.
With this Full Moon influenced by Beltane, Neptune and Pluto retro we are invited to connect deeply with who we are. So yes shadow work on one side, but the biggest energy I’m feeling here is an embodiment. Connect to your Higher Self and tune in to how you can get deeper clarity about who you are and why you are here. Your Divine Light Mission is calling to you, and delivering pieces of the puzzle. Don’t get discouraged or brush off information if you are only getting little pieces of information. Express them and trust that the steps will continue to reveal themselves as you embody your Higher self. This is powerful stuff. Make time for it.
This is just the first 10 days of May. As we move on to the 10th – 20th we are encouraged even deeper, by even more planets to DIG in.
First we have Saturn Retrograde on May 11. Suport as we are guided to reevaluate what is and is not working in our lives. Now this energy is also working with the collective as a whole as we all get to choose what we are working towards? What are we focused on? What do we want normal to look like? This may feel like a bit of a weird time, and that chaotic energy is still present in order to show us that there is an opportunity for something that feels better than normal. On a grand scale these questions can be asked. On a personal level the more you ask these questions to yourself the more you are contributing to the collective manifestation of what a better normal is. Get clear on it for yourself and in your own life.
Only a few days later on May 13 Venus joins the party in retrograde, because hey why not bring relationships into the mix? Because of all the other energies at play Venus is really encouraging our relationship with our inner selves to be the first focus. This is ascended self knowing and self acceptance. If you have felt challenged in these areas you will have a big opportunity to come to a place of understanding. You will be in the perfect energy to know what you need for your Highest good as far as relationships with others as well. Your intuitive discernment and inner communication are on high. You will know when you need boundaries, when you need deeper connection to yourself and others. Listen to these intuitive nudges and be guided by your inner knowing in your heart on this one.
Now remember we’re also still under multiple retrogrades so support to reevaluate your relations with yourself and with other and creating a new normal in these areas is supported.
If things feel chaotic during this time bring it back down to Earth. Get grounded. Get centered in your heart and get still. Mental energy can create havoc during chaotic energy time, but when we can find the stillness within we can more clearly understand what our highest path forward is.
And the very next day Jupiter is also entering the retrograde room. This one is more laid back and chill. Almost like he knows we’ve got alot on our plate so he is bringing in some fun and clarity to help us move forward. Jupiter is highlighting (and if we are going within the messages will be consistent until we take note) our Highest path forward. Jupiter is asking you if you are moving forward based on your own empowerment, joy and creativity or if we are following along with the ‘normal’ societal programming.
With a bit of rebellious energy Jupiter is coming in like a cool aunt who wants you to go on an adventure so you can see what you are really made of. This adventure starts within and this is also where you get the directions and inspirations for the path.
So that is enough of the planetary retro influences for one month – we will now have some time to practice what they are guiding us to do.
- Practice going within, finding that stillness and inner wisdom.
- Practice discernment and asking yourself if this is what you want to be creating, focusing on, how you want to be living?
- Practice expressing and putting the pieces together for what an empowered life would look and feel like?
- Start to take action on the new creative brilliance that is emerging.

The final 10 days of May we see a New Moon on the 22nd. We’ve had some time to settle into this supportive energy of gaining clarity and insight so with this moon we can set some powerful AF intentions.
Our May New Moon is calling for us to put down excuses and shift our way of thinking so that we are choosing our highest path. So that we are fully committed to our vision (even and especially when we don’t know all the hows). This Moon is asking that we communicate the creativity within and get ready for action. Get clear. Ground and really feel it. Trust that everything is always working out in your favor and that your inner knowing is on point. Take action and keep your focus aligned to the path you are most called to walk.
