The Vibrations of May

Focus is on Spiritual Disruption and Faith

May is a 16/7 Universal Month
(5 + 2 + 0 + 1 + 8 = 16/7))
16/7 is a karmic debt number
2018 is an 11/2 Universal Year

Universal Month of 16/7

May vibrates to the numbers 16 and 7, and it’s a month of disruptions and a certain faith that these disturbances are for the better when it is all said and done. A 16/7 karmic debt vibration represents the disruption of something that was built upon false beliefs.

Karmic Debt Month

A Karmic Debt number is a testing vibration or warning number and the effects of it will be pronounced and noticeable. In May, this universal number 16/7 is a warning on the World stage that certain foundations are not in order and are on very shaky ground. The best visual of number 16 that I can provide is the Tower in the Tarot. The bolt of lightning symbolizes, in some form or another, a moment of illumination of realization, of experience, that shakes our world to its very foundation. We fall naked from the structure giving rise to having to rebuild.

Two houses on the World stage that are in peril of this “Tower syndrome” right now are the White House and Facebook. The message is a difficult one and the philosophical message is death, but with the promise of spiritual enlightenment and faith in its aftermath.

Number 7 vibrates with the vibrations of the collective consciousness, spirituality and faith. It’s the number of spiritual awakening, inner strength and endurance. While 16 is a difficult vibration, number 7 is beneficial because it aids in successes realized after the fall.

May is the Month of 

During May, the 5th month of the year, the vibration of 5 brings a strong desire for change and freedom in any way shape or form that beckons your spirit. There is a restless energy that persists within, so get out your “freedom map”and make the change that you crave and desire. This month, it’s time to break out of whatever self-imposed prison you find yourself in. You do not need a get out of jail card, just change your mindset and walk out into the world a free person.


Moon Phases in May 

The New Moon on Tuesday May 15th located at 24° Taurus is influenced by  tendencies that lean towards aggressiveness, combativeness, stubbornness and being “bull-headed”.  Taurus is a fixed sign, therefore you can be unchanging in your stance, so be careful about being too rigid. Flexibility is a good thing. When the Moon is in Taurus, take time to continue or conclude projects that you have already started. Taurus is ruled by Venus, so this would be a good time to enjoy and appreciate the earthly beauty that surrounds the planet.
Taurus rules the neck, throat, vocal cords and thyroid gland.

The Taurus New Moon arrives on 4 universal day. Number 4 is the vibration of realization and planning. Therefore, there is opportunity to put more form and structure into all things you create. Money and finances are a definite part of the 4 vibration cycle, so set up a budget to pay off all debts.
Keywords: Stability, building, responsibility.

The Full Moon on Tuesday May 29th falls at 8° Sagittarius and creates an environment of competitiveness and idealistic feelings over the next couple of weeks. There could be inner tensions combined with external pressures that could lead to personal conflict that could drain your energies as they pertain to your home, family and intimate relationships.
Sagittarius rules liver, hips, thighs, sacrum.

The Sagittarius Full Moon arrives on a 9 universal day. Number 9 is the vibration of endings and completions and the focus is on endings that lead to new beginnings. This is a day when it behooves you to try being more benevolent and compassionate. It’s a good time to take up a worthy cause, such as helping someone in need or setting up a charity, or at least donating to your favorite charity.
Keywords: Aspiration, ideals, adaptability, self-expression

Current Retrograding Planets

Pluto from April 22 through September 30th. Pluto represents the urge to transform, to regenerate → bringing forth rebirth. It is a symbol of decay, contamination, destruction, desire, obsession, and elimination, but is also a symbol of cleansing and a healing catharsis. A Pluto retrograde represents a challenge and describes what it is that we want so much that we are willing to make some big changes to get, or what things will cause us to change in spite of ourselves. Transiting Pluto is a time of reflection about power and control in your life. If people have controlled or manipulated you, now is the time to let them go. If the opposite is true, then it is time for you to let go.

Saturn from April 17 through September 6th. Saturn symbolizes the first law of manifestation → limitation. Saturn’s energies strengthen the personality through endurance and persistence. It focuses and concentrates karmic energy. Saturn is the Lord of Karma and during retrograde is when Karma is sorted out, so Saturn retrograde is a double dose of karma. The lessons associated with Saturn retrograde relate to what you think and and what you say during this period.
