We survived the extreme and transformative energy from last week's Blood Moon. Hopefully, we have begun the process of evolving (or being catapulted!) into the next level in our lives. I must say, sometimes this happens quite abruptly! There is no doubt, we are still feeling the effects of this total lunar eclipse.
We also have Jupiter, which changed signs and entered Aries a few days ago, bringing with it a fresh new energy in our consciousness. It may get us thinking about new beginnings. On May 20th, the sun moves from earthy Taurus into the air sign of Gemini. (Happy birthday to all the Geminis out there!) With Mercury, Gemini’s ruling planet, in retrograde, the energy may feel a bit sluggish at this point. We may collectively feel worn out from all of the cosmic activity.
As Gemini is an air sign, think about taking steps to ease your mind, clear any mental chatter, and pay closer attention to your intuition. In the week’s portion, Bamidbar, we find the names of the people who represented the heads of the tribes. It is information that provides us with an opportunity to control the influences of the 12 signs. There are 12 tribes and 12 signs. So kabbalistic astrology does not merely give you another way to think about your life. It's wisdom that you can’t get elsewhere, a spiritual system that offers you tools to control your destiny and understand the influences in your life.
This week, we have the opportunity to tap into the energy of each of the 12 months. As Rav Berg said, “We are here today to capture this enormous energy of the Light by virtue of listening to the portion and allowing the Light to feed us. Take the Light in from all those months, even though they are not in existence at the present time. Thus, we can benefit from all the energy of protection from each month of the year right now.”
