Oracle Card Readings For May: Each Zodiac Sign Is Included

Published

on

The history of Oracle cards does not seem as rich and lengthy as its Tarot counterpart, but the history of these cards does start with the Tarot. Oracle cards branched off into their own particular brand of divination around 200 years ago – not long after the Tarot itself started being used for divinatory purposes.

Of course like anything, they also come with criticism. Our thoughts? Have fun with it, see how the answers or pieces of wisdom make you feel, but don’t feel like you need to put all your eggs in one basket.

These were provided by Tarot Reader Sonya Singh. You can find a brief bio of her at the end of the article, and you can also access her website here.

Aries

You may be going through emotional healing this month. Your message from the angels is to open your heart to love and let go of any past hurt and disappointment. Clear your heart of anything that is not serving its purpose to make room for new blessings. You may also be caught up between making choices, which leave you confused. Be honest with yourself and the people involved in your life about what you want. Don’t be afraid to speak your truth. Take some time out from routine, especially if you are overexerting yourself in both personal and professional life. This “me” time is necessary to avoid burnout and will help rejuvenate you, ensuring that you are better able to fulfill your duties.

Taurus

This is a month to balance your giving and receiving ratio. You may be giving too much of yourself to others or vice versa. Give something each day without expecting anything in return; this may include your time, a donation of any kind, or simply appreciating the people in your life. Similarly, ensure you are receptive to receiving help. Your message is to stop worrying too much about a particular situation in your life, as everything is working out in your favor. Be patient at this time, as your dreams and goals are about to manifest. This is also an excellent month to take up learning, continue further studies, resume school, or research on a topic. If your desired outcome is delayed, then take heart in the knowledge that everything will fall into place at the right time. This period of waiting is a great opportunity for you to absorb more information and fine-tune your skills.

Gemini

This month focuses on releasing any anger or judgment you hold towards yourself or others. This is a time of forgiving, as you are undergoing healing and it is necessary to release any blocked emotions. This month also marks the perfect time for you to act on your inspirations. Avoid delays and procrastination. Sometimes, it is all about taking that first step towards your goals rather than waiting until you figure out all the details. Don’t worry about the “how” and “when.” Your ideas are like seeds which need to be tended carefully right now. For most of you, Autumn is the season when you will reap the rewards of your hard work. Work with Archangel Uriel to help release and heal your emotions.

Cancer

This is a favorable month to start something new. Pay attention to your inner calling and act on the new ideas and inspirations that come to you. These are divinely directed. This could be a project, a new business venture, or even an emotional beginning. You are being watched, guided, and protected during these changes. News related to pregnancy is also on the cards, so get ready or be careful. They also gently remind you to let go of judgments and look past the errors and misunderstandings of others. Forgive someone you have been facing difficulties with of late. Focus on love and the goodness in yourself and others. Drop any self-defeating thoughts and lift your vibrations if you doubt your own abilities or find yourself in an unloving situation.

Leo

An excellent month for Leo to move forward with their plans and ideas. You may be afraid of changes or are wondering whether to proceed further or stick to the familiar. Trust in this divine timing and move forward. Do not hesitate or doubt yourself, as this is a favorable time. You will find the necessary support and resources to back you up. Stay positive during this transition. Your etheric body needs healing and you would benefit from spending time close to the ocean. If this is not possible, then consider a salt-water bath. Salt is excellent at neutralizing and transmuting negativity and will help rid you of negative energies from your aura.

Virgo

Your financial situation is improving. Your finances may have been blocked due to numerous factors in the past and as you follow your inner guidance and release any negative conditioning about money, you will notice that many opportunities and doors open for you. Be patient. May is also a great month to work on your relationships. Singles are likely to find love and those in an existing relationship will be able to overcome any challenges in their current relationships. It is also important to let go of any feelings of unworthiness when it comes to receiving love. Open your heart and welcome new beginnings.

Libra

Think creatively! Focus on a project that you have been procrastinating on for a while. If you have been delaying the start of a new venture that involves your creative input, then this is the time to showcase your talent. It doesn’t matter if your skills are market ready. Continue to pour your energy and passion into this task. Give away any feelings of insecurity or limitation to the universe. If you have been worried lately about the outcome to a difficult situation, then take comfort that everything is working out beautifully. A little more patience will go a long way. Meditation and prayer will help illuminate your path ahead and bring you peace.

Scorpio

May marks the beginning of pursuing something new, which brings you rewards and recognition. You may be feeling frustrated at not getting something right. This could be a hobby or a newly developed skill. Your keyword is practice. Keep trying and don’t give up, as you are very close to mastering this art. This is a great time to polish your skills. You are also advised to spend more time outdoors, especially if you have been spending too much time indoors, depriving yourself of fresh air and close contact with nature. Your body craves oxygenated air. Consider spending some time gardening, taking a walk in the park, hiking, trekking, or simply being close to nature in any way possible. You can also ventilate your home to let fresh air flow in. Deep breaths will also help relieve stress.

Sagittarius 

You may have been struggling to fix something for too long that is not going the way you had hoped for. Your divine message is to let go of the need to control and surrender your situation to the Universe. Release your worries and have faith. Letting go doesn’t mean you are giving up. Instead, it means you choose not to let yourself be weighed down by situations that are beyond your control. It may also be the right time to release something or someone from your life. Make a list of everything that is not serving its purpose in your life, then let it go with your intentions. There may be decisions to make and if you’re feeling confused, ask yourself which path brings you closer to peace and makes you feel good about yourself. You already know the answers. Be open and admit to yourself and others what you truly desire.

Capricorn

Good news related to your finances is highlighted this month. Any past debt will be lifted as your financial situation improves and you will find ways to bring more abundance and prosperity into your life. You may find a new job or an additional one to draw multiple incomes. You are also strongly advised to shed your fears and worries, as they only attract what you don’t want, blocking your chances at a speedy manifestation. The situation you are concerned about is under control and there is nothing to worry about. You are also being guided to pursue education, further studies, and take up courses that will help expand your knowledge and polish your existing skills. Do some additional research on a topic close to your heart and focus on learning.

Aquarius

Business and romance are the highlights for Aquarius in May. A new business venture is in the cards and you should trust and follow your instincts with this new opportunity. If self-employment is on your mind, then this is a great time to act on your inspirations. Your creativity will help open doors for you. Do not belittle yourself and express your creative side without worrying too much about how it will be received. A new romance is likely to blossom for most of the single Aquarians. Your existing relationships improve as you reignite their passion. Ensure you are striking a healthy balance of giving and receiving in your personal life.

Pisces

Pisces, this is the month to act and charge ahead! You’ve got the power and the abilities to make a change and bring your desires to fruition. You may have doubted your capabilities in the past and it is now time to pay attention to your divine inner light and have the confidence to move forward and make changes. This is a great time to pursue new opportunities, and if you have been wondering lately whether to stay put or proceed further with regards to a situation, then the Universe is reassuring you to move forward. Let your intuition be the guide. Do not dismiss your inner guidance, as it is pushing you in the right direction. Procrastination could act as the culprit that will block your progress.

Why Vegan and not Vegetarian? Vietnamese Monk Thich Nhat Hanh Answers The Question

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Vietnamese Monk Thich Nhat Hanh explains why he chooses not to consume any meat or dairy products, and points towards the overwhelmingly cruel food industry.

  • Reflect On:

    What gives us the right to torture animals, steal their babies, abuse them simply for our consumption? Where is our compassion, morality and empathy? Have we been made and brainwashed to believe that it's ok?

The most heartbreaking thing to see and to witness is an innocent benevolent being getting tortured and suffering. This is the realty of eating animal products today. Billions of animals are raised for slaughter every single year, and the overwhelmingly large majority of them go through horrific and terrifying experiences. It’s hard to imagine how anybody could eat or wear the clothes of diseased animals knowing what they went through. It’s also hard to believe that anybody who does eat or purchase products that have used animals in their manufacturing process would do that kind of “labour” themselves.

The truth is that many people still don’t know what these beings are going through. It’s absolutely heartbreaking, immoral, and unethical. Morality, empathy, and love are all emotions that need to return to planet Earth, and as long as we have multiple industries exploiting animals, that can’t happen.

If you’re unaware of what these animals are going through on a daily basis, a recent PETA investigation on two of the world’s top cashmere exporters revealed extreme cruelty, including the violent killing of cashmere goats. You can read more about it and see some footage of that here, if you’re interested.

You can view more examples of graphic footage in the trailer of “The Buddha Bowl,” a documentary in the making featuring personalities and some of the most influential and renowned spiritual leaders from all over the world sharing their perspectives on veganism. These include viewpoints from Buddha himself and from spiritual leaders from the past and present, totalling about 30 interviews on animal rights, environmental issues and health.

One of the people in that documentary is Thich Nhat Hanh, a Vietnamese Buddhist monk who is recognized as a global spiritual leader, poet and peace activist. The video below is not part of the documentary listed above, but from an interview taken a few years ago at a conference.

Are We Even Designed To Eat Meat?

There is no doubt our world is becoming more awake, aware, and compassionate. Millions of people around the world have transitioned towards a plant-based diet. This represents the kind of compassion and empathy our world needs more of, and this diet can do nothing but benefit human health, the planet, and the animals.

It’s no secret that eating meat and animal products is destroying the Earth, as clearing land for animal grazing and slaughter is one of the leading causes of deforestation, and factory farms are an environmental disaster.

More people are also starting to become aware of plant-based diets and their health benefits.

A recent study conducted by researchers in California and France found that meat protein is associated with a very sharp increased risk of heart disease, while protein from nuts and seeds is actually beneficial for the human heart. The study is titled “Patterns of plant and animal protein intake are strongly associated with cardiovascular mortality: The Adventist Health Study-2 cohort,”

It’s one of many studies that’ve emerged over the years showing the benefits of plant-based diets and their ability to reverse diseases. On the other hand, many studies published have shown how the consumption of meat has the exact opposite effect.

Below is a clip from a recent CETV episode where CE founder Joe Martino and I go into the discussion a little deeper, with a specific focus on plant-based protein compared to meat protein. If interested, you can watch the full episode here by signing up for your free trial. CETV is a platform that we created to combat the censorship we’ve experienced over the past couple of years.

I also go into this type of discussion, if you’re interested in reading about it, in an article I recently published: “Another Study Suggests Humans Are Not Designed To Eat Meat.”

The Takeaway

Human beings are born with compassion and empathy. What we are doing to animals on our planet today, and how many continue to ignore it and be unaffected by it, is simply as a result of mass brainwashing and marketing by big food corporations. The truth is that we’ve been taught to ignore it, we’ve been taught to believe that it’s OK and it’s our right to do this to others who share the planet with us. No child would ever stand for such a thing unless they were taught to do so. It’s the same thing as racism, we are not born with it, we are taught it. I urge all those who are reading this to do their research into where the vast majority of our food and clothes are coming from, watch what these animals are going through, look into their eyes and and feel what they are feeling.

The ability to feel and understand the emotions of others, animal or human, is a HUGE and VITAL step towards creating a better world and a better overall human experience.

Marianne Williamson Admits “The System Is More Corrupt Than I Knew”

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Marianne Williamson stated in an interview on Fox and Friends that she did not realize the political system was as corrupt as it is.

  • Reflect On:

    This is an important revelation of how leaders often don't quite see the full truth of our system at hand. Through them and their experience, we can learn a lot about what is truly going on. Is it time to let go of the systems we have?

About a week ago Marianne Williamson told the New Yorker, I know this sounds naïve, but I didn’t think the left was so mean. I didn’t think the left lied like this.” In a segment I did on CETV, I discussed the fact that Williamson is doing a great job of bringing a bit more of a conscious conversation into the mix here, which is very important, but seems to not quite understand what politics is really about and how things function in our world.

In my article about this statement I stated:

Some have suggested that Marianne already knows these truths, and she may, but I wouldn’t be surprised if she is only uncovering these things now. I say this as I belong to a group that communicates regularly that contains many high profile conscious industry leaders like Williamson and other big authors, speakers etc. Many of them are great with spirituality but seem to struggle to see how politics truly functions. I have witnessed this first hand and this is why I’m so passionate about what I do as I feel bringing together both personal transformation and hard truth is imperative.

Some felt that my analysis was off and that Williamson is just ‘playing naive,’ but to me, this did not feel true nor did it seem to be the case. While some might view this as an unimportant detail, it’s very important as for society to truly begin to shift we must not only personally transform but also realize the true nature of the world we live in.

As outlined in the CE Protocol, the formula I built to help awaken and shift the masses, the very first step is Breaking The Illusion about our programmed reality and understand what’s truly going on. From there, personal transformation becomes key.

Williamson Admits She Was Unaware

Here we are a week later and Williamson has stated what I observed in my previous segment, she did not quite realize how corrupt our political system truly is. In an interview on Fox and Friends Williamson stated:

advertisement - learn more

“I would say that I feel that I’ve learned that the system is even more corrupt than I knew and people are even more wonderful than I hoped,

I want to state this isn’t about picking on anyone as much as it is about understanding the importance behind seeing the full picture of the change that needs to take place here. For 10 years now I have built CE to include both personal transformation and truth seeking for the reason that either one of those topics on their own doesn’t create the change we all know is possible in our hearts.

I’ve seen many ‘spiritual leaders’ still deeply support the dysfunctional nature of our systems because they believe there is truth to them when in reality they belong to a consciousness we are shifting away from.

Our political system is built and exists within a system designed for a very limited state of consciousness, some call this 3D consciousness. The goal isn’t to shift our political system, it’s to let it go. Collectively we are shifting and the new state of consciousness emerging doesn’t support the political system at hand. Hence why the chaos around it is increasing, because it’s acting as a mirror for us to see how it doesn’t resonate with our emerging consciousness.

It’s like trying to install Windows on a Mac or vice versa, the systems aren’t designed for the operating system. Humanity is faced with a challenge of ‘letting go of the old,’ not trying to fix the old.

In a brand new segment of The CE Show I did on YouTube and CETV, I discuss Marianne’s latest comments and what I feel we all must realize as we move forward in this journey of shifting ourselves and our world.

The CE Show airs multiple times per week on CETV. Membership proceeds from CETV go towards supporting our journalism and future broadcasts. You can start a free 7 day trial here.

The Takeaway

I feel that we have become addicted to the systems of a state of consciousness that we are moving away from. The choice is up to us, we stop resisting and holding onto things of the old, move through the process of watching these old systems fall away, or we continue to fight tooth and nail under the belief that we must hold up the old systems, and suffer along the way.

Ask yourself within, do you truly feel that this is about changing our current political system to be more open and evolved? Or is it about letting go of the rigidity of our current systems and creating new ones that are birthed from a  new state of consciousness, not one that is centuries old…

Full Moon In Pisces: Navigating Ideals

Published

on

We are having a Full Moon in Pisces which will be exact at 4:33am Universal Time on September 14th 2019. It will appear the fullest on the night of the 13th for most of the world and on the night of the 14th for the Far East, Australia, and New Zealand.

This is the peak of the Lunar cycle which began two weeks prior with a New Moon in Virgo. The energies of it build up as the Moon increases its light and are strongest in the days before and after. However, it will still be a part of the backdrop over the following two weeks.

Full Moon’s are a period in which we feel a push-pull between two opposing signs, in this case being the Moon in Pisces and Sun in Virgo. It can reflect either a conflict or integration of both signs. We can feel this opposition happening individually within us and/or we can also experience it play out around us with some people (or circumstances) expressing the Virgo side and others expressing the Pisces side.

Pisces is associated with sensitivity, compassion, creativity, and oneness. It is spiritually conductive, mystical, energy oriented, dreamy, flowy, imaginative, idealistic, and empathic. Negatively, it can be delusional, lazy, intoxicated, deceptive, confused/confusing, elusive, flaky, and lack critical thinking. Pisces energy is the least compatible with the mundane world and is associated with escapism in its many forms.

Virgo is about productivity, duties, service, physical health, cleanliness, and purity. It is organized, conscientious, skillful, diligent, efficient, analytical, detailed, and practical. Negatively, Virgo energy can also be overly critical, too cautious, fault-finding, irritable, discriminating, and overly perfectionist.

Full Moon Aligned with Neptune in T-Square with Jupiter and Mars

This Full Moon is close to Neptune which has many of the same qualities of Pisces that were mentioned above. It is viewed as a modern ruler of that sign and it amplifies its energies even more so during this period. Neptune is also associated with glamour, romance, and addiction. It has a dissolving, flooding, and watery energy that doesn’t comprehend boundaries.

Neptune is completing its last of three squares with Jupiter in Sagittarius which will be exact on September 21st and will be strong into the following week. It began last January and peaked again this past June. At best, this can be an expansive period in a spiritual, creative, or compassionate way.

However, it can also be a time of confusion or lack of discernment around beliefs, ideologies, education, and teachers. It can also be a time in which we become aware of us being like that previously. We can be more excessive when it comes to how we express Piscean/Neptunian energies mentioned above.

At the time of the Full Moon, Mars in Virgo is also involved in this configuration along with the opposition of the Sun and Moon, forming a T-square aspect. This can be good for asserting ourselves towards our ideals or with a different Jupiter-Neptune approach (mentioned above). However this can also make our actions scattered, less assertive/direct, and make it harder to apply ourselves with practicality.

Full Moon Sextile Pluto Near Saturn and South Node, Saturn Going Direct

This Full Moon is in a tight sextile with Pluto which is near Saturn and the South Node. This could trigger some of the themes of the previous Lunar Eclipse (that is still reflecting this period) in a more harmonious way. Purging aspects of our past that are getting in the way of us moving forward. This can help to facilitate empowerment through some sort of release or transformation.

Saturn will be finishing its retrograde on September 18th and will move towards its final conjunction with the South Node which will peak at the end of the month and early October. This energy was also strong in mid Spring and part of it in early Summer.

Saturnian themes get amplified and we can be dealing with limitations, obstacles, restrictions, or perhaps issues around boundaries. We may feel a need to make changes around responsibilities, commitments, career, and structures in our lives. Similarly to the last Lunar Eclipse, there can be a sort of ending playing out around how an area of our lives is being expressed.

Full Moon Opposing Mercury and Venus Conjunction As They Change Signs

At the time of this Full Moon, Mercury and Venus are in a conjunction at the very end of Virgo, (Mercury’s sign). They will then be moving into Libra (Venus’ sign) in the hours following with the Full Moon triggering after it begins to wane.

This can be a time of heightened interactions, catching up with friends and other relationships. While it is in Virgo it could lean more towards its themes connected to work, service, fault finding, etc. For some people there can be a feeling of some sort of urgency.

After this conjunction moves into Libra, especially a day after the Full Moon,  it becomes more pleasant, social, and creative. Our interactions can be more harmonious, diplomatic, and less critical. We can more easily see both sides to something, find balance, and a great time to discuss relationship matters.

As a result of both of these planets transitioning near the same time, some people may experience some sort of significant shift in other areas of their lives within a few days following the Full Moon.

Things To Consider During This Period

How can you better balance the mundane aspects of life with your ideals, creativity, or spirituality? How have your beliefs been impacted this year and what is the conclusion to your experiences? Is it possible that you may have been confused about some aspects of newly or previously acquired perspectives?

What themes are coming up for you now that have been playing out since last April? What do you need to release? What changes do you need to make when it comes to your work, responsibilities, commitments, structures, or boundaries?
These are just some examples of what could come up during this period; however, there may be other variations of this energy playing out. If you wish to do any sort of intentional release connected to what has come up at this Full Moon, it is best to do so anytime after the peak of the Full Moon when it begins to wane until the next New Moon in two weeks. The exact moment of this Full Moon is on September 14th at 4:33am Universal Time. You can click here to see what that is in your time zone.
