Heed the Red Day this month!
There are many indications that the energies on May 15 will expose our personal weaknesses – in our body, mind and spirit. So plan ahead to not be too active on this day, and it will stave off issues that would emerge in two months.
There are SO many planetary changes occurring on May 14 and May 15 that this will challenge our sense of routines and rhythm. But because you know to suspend belief and to move slowly and not stress your systems – to instead take extra time to stretch, to move in ways your joints are not challenged, in ways your soul is nourished because the energy of May 14 & 15 are tender.
- The Sun appears to change constellations (called Sandhi) in the wee hours of the new day on May 15th in London or close to UTC. This changing energy happens each month, but because we also have…
- Venus changing constellations from a place of solid, stability into an air sign, Gemini, and it will be in Saturn’s glance – this changes the energy we experience in these two days. Luckily, the Moon begins building light and there is other good news too. Venus and Jupiter are in a special relationship once again!
- More on the special placement of Venus and Jupiter in another blog post. First, heed the Red Day and make sure it is chill. Your health will be improved at the next big stress events in late summer – the Mega Red Days.
Health and illness can be response to what we did or how we chose two months prior-
To prevent a cold or flu or injury to your joints in July and August – this is why I am saying heed the Red Day this month.
In the Eastern traditions of Ayurveda and Chinese medicine, what we do at times of transition (such as a 10 – 20 degree temperature change in one day, or a switch from winter to spring are major transitions for our bodies) actually affects us in about two months or in the next season.
The paying subscribers to Conscious Calendars have heard this message since the first of May – and they have been able to plan to take it easy during the Red Day this month.
Southern Hemisphere – get ready for the descent
The southern hemisphere is going into its darkest time of year – so the Red Day for those ‘down under’ is one of the lowest energy pools of the year. The Red Day in June is the absolute lowest energy for those in who are about to experience their winter solstice.
This changing energy is about preparing for change – and being ready to let go while at the same time, readying the soil of our projects that we can seed at the end of May because THERE ARE SO MANY INCREDIBLE GREEN DAYS over the next few weeks! Be slow now, so you can be ready for the 7 Green Days that are coming our way. (Want to know when they are? Check it out – look 2, 6 or 12 months ahead with Conscious Calendars.)
Theme of this Moon: Gentle, gentle, gentle – tend your system like you would a fuzzy kitten or puppy, or any newborn. Treat your body, mind, & spirit with tenderness and gentle care.
This New Moon in Taurus is about gently, gently caring for your body, house, family, dreams, and gardens for the month.
This New Moon is in a fixed Earth sign with the Sun JUST barely in Taurus (00:29 UTC time), called Sandhi in Vedic Astrology, which means things are tentative and not fully established yet. In Vedic Astrology, the Sun relates to our vitality, our digestive fire (the ability to break-down and digest food, life, information and turn it into the next stage), and the positive forces of the ego-self.
All of these indications tell us to care for the things that ‘house’ us – the things that bring us shelter and protection – like our body, home and family. This is not a time for pushing out a lot of life force energy or fighting against the natural flow. It is a time for gently allowing this energy to land in our lives so that we are well nourished and better prepared for what is to come, both the challenging and the good.
