"The Light available to us this week connects us to the energy that was revealed on Mt. Sinai when death was eliminated. Imagine never saying goodbye to a loved one. Imagine the enjoyment and blessings of life never coming to an end. Imagine enjoying lifetimes of endless good health and vitality. This great promise from the Creator is indeed our future and destiny, but this week we can have a taste of that reality."
– Karen Berg
This week is very special and filled with Light and opportunity. The holiday of Shavuot takes place from May 16 to the 17, and the sun moves into the sign of Gemini on May 21. In order to connect to the tremendous amount of Light that is available for us this week, we need to work with it, reveal it, and remove anything that stands in the way of recognizing it. Like any other week, the cosmos is here to support our spiritual growth, and many opportunities will be given to us—some in more obvious and free-flowing ways and others that will require us to uncover and reveal the Light within the challenge.
Our week starts with tremendous cosmic support by the sun in Taurus, forming a positive aspect with Pluto in Capricorn. As we move toward the last few days of the month of Taurus, this stable and strong influence directs us to get the job done. If there is anything that we’ve been lazy about, anything we are still postponing, the universe now tells us to take advantage of this powerful Earth connection and make it happen.
Through the week, the moon changes signs every 2.5 days. While the moon interacts with different planets and signs, some interactions are more supportive and pleasant, encouraging cooperation with others, and others are more challenging, creating tension and confusion. This changeable cosmic energy prepares us for the upcoming month of air, encouraging us to loosen up and go with the flow. The Light is always there. But if we don’t make an effort to recognize it, to remove the stiff and stuck energy, we might not be able to recognize it.
On Wednesday and Thursday, planet Venus (in Gemini) forms a positive aspect with Saturn (in Aquarius) preparing us for the moment the sun enters Gemini on Friday, highlighting the energy of air and flexibility in the upcoming month. When both Venus and Saturn are aligned and placed in supportive signs and aspects, they offer stability, sensibility, and trust.
This week may present a huge test. As the sun enters Gemini on Friday, May 21, there is another cosmic challenge that shows up among many planets, which involves the moon, Mercury, Neptune, and Jupiter. This will challenge our ability to trust and feel safe. But remember, the cure always shows up before the disease. We could potentially experience the challenge, but at the same time, there is so much that is going on in the cosmos that is here to support us and help us elevate and ascend from this seemingly challenging energy. This week, the portion of Naso supports our ability to elevate above and beyond.
