Welcome to May, starLites
What an intense month April was, and while I was able to ‘do’ a lot, I’m very much looking forward to quieter days ahead. Regardless of what the world wants to throw at us as a collective, I know I need to personally retreat, nurture and care for my space.
Beltane kicked off the month of May, and I’ve already begun to feel my mind slow down significantly. The busyness of the voices, and the high energy transfer from my guides has all but stopped. All of this would seem contrary to the increased Fae and Spirit energy floating around, as we celebrate fertility, growth, and passion coming alive as the Sun fills our sky with longer brighter days. And yet here I am, ready to tend to my own, on my own time.
In a video I recently watched with Rachel Hollis, she asked us to determine our perception of this time… is it happening to us? Or is it happening for us?
As I meditated on this, a Doe made her presence. She was very quiet, very gentle. We looked at each other and I could feel her message absolutely dissolve into my very being. This time is happening for me. The time has come, again, for another change, another decision… but I don’t have to dive into this one. It will happen, as long as I stay connected, at ease and at peace. The Doe as an Animal Spirit Guide not only lives, but survives and thrives at a gentle tempo all her own, pivoting only when in danger.
I feel like April was my pivot from something scary, even though I had just found a space I thought I was comfortable with. Here I am, here we all are, in a new valley, trying to settle in, and find a new natural rhythm that will bring us serenity, prosperity and joy.
As we work through the Page of Swords, I love that we will walk this path with an inherent need for clarity that will establish a 'Why' that is going to carry us through the remainder of Tarot.
Blessings, sweet friends, and may you find your Duende in the budding new life of the season.
Love, Light and starDust

sun sign in Aquarius
General - Of the air element, this page represents new thoughts and ideas, and good news of an upcoming project. Focused and determined, skilled in the way of masonry and trades, you're a very tactile maker and creator. With so many ideas, you may need some help keeping your feet on the ground. Very talkative, curious, inquisitive and smart, there is always a need to know why, so make sure you’re always asking good, thoughtful questions. Know that you are guided by visuals such as dreams. You’re excellent at networking and meeting the right mentors and contacts to move an idea into a project. Knowing how to act in the company of others will help you work well in refined environments such as fundraising and gala events. You have the best of intentions, not just for yourself, but for your community.
Shadow ~ A delay in information. Communicating from a place of ego, in the sense that you’re sharing your voice simply to be heard. There’s no substance behind it, you’re engaged in gossip, most likely due to feeling inferior, less than, not as educated or skilled as. Not taking the initiative to make your visions, your goals and your dreams a reality. Talking about doing one thing, while doing the exact opposite. You can be easily influenced by narcotics, with a belief that your ideas and senses are being heightened. Like the actual sword, be wary of being two faced. Be mindful of your inquisition, as it can be annoying to some, so make sure that you’re presenting yourself in a manner of wanting to learn, rather than being a perpetual devil’s advocate. Don’t argue for the sake of arguing. If you have something to say, don’t be afraid to say it.
Divine Feminine ~ Blessed are you and your modern ways of thinking with respect to challenging and questioning patriarchal systems. Your intuitive connection allows you to clearly see the need to sort out ‘what’s next’ for the collective. Behind the scenes, you're hard at work drafting solutions, building templates, brainstorming courses and/or creating new ways to work with old belief patterns as they relate to the modern woman. You’re a change maker who’s aligned with the success of our future. Spell work is a natural gift as you are highly attuned in asking, trying, mixing, tinkering and trying again; always with the intention to provide an easier path to sistership. While you’re not one to follow a singular pantheon, your curiosity and insatiable desire to learn and ask, allows you to work with a variety of deities, cultures and people alike. Your ‘why’ whether it be personal or your path to finding answers is the greatest weapon you own. It is directly linked to your purpose and your discovery and understanding of the Divine. You have an internal need to help those less fortunate, especially young women who are being oppressed with limited access to the basics of human rights. Listen to what society is asking for, know why they are asking for it, and problem solve around it.
You’ve just newly started to either connect with the Divine Feminine, or you’re exploring a new aspect of Her. It’s okay to not be perfect, you’re just starting the exploration. Give yourself some time to work through all the aspects that you’re being called too. Be open to this new way of thinking, and communicate while you’re learning. Keep your sword sharp, as you’re going to need the flexibility to make clear decisions.
