My father would discuss medical oddities, like the couple who came to him with strange flash burns in the middle of winter, with a story about seeing a UFO on an isolated mountain. They had told no one else and had no reason to lie. Once, my father recounted a Scientific American article about how a virgin birth could occur. Another time, he told me he always knew when a patient was ready to die in the hospital because “they had that certain look in their eye.” One conversation always stuck with me, “A soul cannot just disappear. A soul is energy and by the laws of physics it cannot just disappear.” .
I was talking to an acquaintance the other day when I noticed he wore a beautiful yet different kind of a bracelet. It was an elastic one with large crystal beads like I had never seen before. I asked him what the beads were made of. He said, "Oh, they’re prayers." He seemed a bit hesitant to talk about it at first but then I showed him my necklace with several crystals. I told him how I really like stones and that I work with them in meditation and when I do Reiki. I said, "I always wear this necklace to remind me that I am still me, no matter what world I am in."
n the 21st century, one of our most significant symbols of money is the checkbook, and is a powerful book of revelation.Within a checkbook, we have a list of things that we have spent money on including who we give to, and perhaps more revelatory is who we do not. Essentially, this long list of bills, obligations, purchased pleasures, and contributions reveals who we are as an individual and our deepest values. So, in addition to money, the sign of Taurus is about getting in touch with our values.
The symbolism of the season is also impressing upon us that it’s time to grow. Whether that’s our physical bodies, projects, finances, or our health it takes time and patience, but if we sit back and let things grow and try not to fiddle with natural processes, our lives will grow beyond our expectations. The Sun makes only positive aspects throughout the month of May and this give us the power and motivation to make things happen. May is a great month for fertility-based spells (even pregnancy), financial spells, and general well-being spells.
