Numerology/Astrology for 5/18/15
Today is the number 4 and balance is the key to success in all of this astrology. With Mercury going retrograde this is going to feel like the universe did a switch-a roo with your mind again. Stay calm, ride the wave of change, and allow the grounded-ness of the New Moon in Taurus stabilize the drama. Balance will be found when you weigh both sides of the equation and work from the outside to the inside. Nature is going to be a huge help right now and I would use the calm objective understanding of the natural world to help navigate these currents today. Very shortly into the day, a Taurus New Moon occurs (at 12:14 AM EDT). The New Moon in Taurus is a good time to commit to personal goals that express the positive energies of the sign of the Bull. It’s time to enjoy life’s simple and physical pleasures–savor good food, and enjoy activities that bring you in touch with nature and with your body. It’s time to stop and smell the roses and to become more aware of what makes you feel comfortable and secure. This is a good cycle under which to re-evaluate your relationship to money and possessions, and to discover what truly makes you happy and fulfilled. With this potent Taurus energy, you have the chance to make important changes in your life. Even so, cloudy thinking or confusion can figure strongly today with Mercury moving to a station and turning retrograde. Communication can be tricky, and it can be hard to focus on cold, hard facts, especially if you have been fuzzy in recent days. Mercury will remain retrograde until June 11th. During this time, your thinking is turned inward, as you review and re-assess matters. Mercury retrograde periods can be times of heightened inner awareness, when meditation, benefiting from keeping a journal, reworking old plans, and reviewing past work are favored. Minor breaks in the mechanical aspects of communication can actually re-connect you to others, possibly more meaningful, means of communication. The Moon is in Taurus until 5:28 AM EDT, when it enters Gemini.
Nothing will stop you from being creative so effectively as the fear of making a mistake.
Life has some big ups and downs. You would think that after all this intense astrology (that has been going on for years) we would feel used to it. But we are still learning the hard lessons of surrender to a larger plan and to accept when we need help from a more experienced and knowledgeable person. If life has been getting the better of you it might be time for a total physical checkup. This stress over these last many years has taken a toll over many of us and it might be time to let those that are supposed to know have a crack at the problem. There are things that you might not be aware of that need a deeper understanding. It is okay to not know everything. But it is wisdom to accept that you don’t and then to ask for help accordingly.
