May is Taurus and Gemini season.

Although there are no major religious or spiritual events this month, May marks a change of seasons and entry to a warmer time of the year in most of the Northern Hemisphere. It is for this reason that there are several days in May that are dedicated to the Sun, light and peace.

Sarah Chauncey Woolsey, an American children's author who lived from 1835 to 1905 said this of May,

"The world's favourite season is the spring. All things seem possible in May."

Some noteworthy dates this month include:

  1. May Day, May 01. A religious day of celebration of a pagan origin.
  2. National Day of Prayer, May 2. This is essentially observed in the United States alone.
  3. Sun Day, May 3. Formerly known as, 'International Sun Day', held in honour of the Sun.
  4. Orthodox Easter Monday, May 6. Celebrated by the Eastern Orthodox Church.
  5. Ascension Day, May 9. This occurs 40 days after Easter and marks Jesus's ascent to heaven.
  6. International Day of Light, May 16.
  7. International Day of Living Together in Peace, May 16.

News Updates for May 2024

A round-up of breaking news and the most interesting stories from the world of astrology and esotericism.

According to Tarot reader, Sagie Mendelbaum, the Israeli singer for the 2024 Eurovision, Eden Golan could win the competition. Mendelbaum says in order to achieve this Golan must, "Not be afraid of the reactions". The Tarot reader also advises the singer to remain elegant and to not get emotional.

Mendelbaum has made a Tarot reading for the event scheduled for 11 May 2024 and the Tarot card that came out in the arrangement for Golan was the, 'High Priestess'. Mendelbaum says this is, "A card of self-respect, total dedication, and few words. Golan's first instinct might be the need to make big speeches, to defend us, herself, and the song, but in fact, the opposite is true". It is claimed that the song shows the Jewish state's artistic side, its culture and an investment in the performing arts.

The Israeli entry to the Eurovisions assumes importance because of the current political and humanitarian crisis in the region.

Reporter, Kira Erickson had her birth chart cast and read by former New York Times foreign correspondent, Graham Gori. Gori provided Erickson with advice about her career and relationship, of which Erickson said, "Because I'm in a relationship, Graham told me, I am already on my path to doing my evolutionary work, and that it wouldn't be happening if I were a single woman."

Philip Schofield, former co-host on 'This Morning', a TV show on the UK's ITV channel, was embroiled in a scandal last year, after admitting to having an "unwise but not illegal" affair with a younger colleague.

Well, celebrity psychic, Inbaal Honigman has now predicted that Schofield will make a TV comeback, according to her tarot cards. Speaking to the Daily Star, Honigman claimed that the tarot "Predicts a calm and quiet year" ahead for Phillip and that he will be handed more than one TV gig. "He'll delve into a regular spiritual practice, and focusing on doing good will ensure that the TV veteran is able to feel as if he's part of a community again. There will be two TV opportunities, but he's not sure whether to say yes", Inbaal said.

The psychic also predicted that Philip's comeback may come in the form of a career change. "The colours and textures of those tarot cards indicate very strongly that Phil will be doing some writing, so a book or a play may be in the works", she explained.

In an interview to 'People' magazine, astrologer Lisa Stardust analysed Charles and Camilla's connection on their 19th year of marriage. According to Stardust, "They will always be drawn to each other, which is evident in their enduring relationship over the years." She was also of the opinion that, "King Charles and Queen Camilla have an 'Unconditional' love".

A 59 year old woman who chooses to remain anonymous said she had been told during a Tarot card reading that money would soon come into her life. The woman won $500,000 playing the Michigan Lottery's 50x Wild Time.

She said, "Once a week I purchase a few instant games and I usually always buy them from the same store. The day I won, I was on my way to a Tarot reading, so I stopped at a different store, purchased some tickets and put them in my purse. Later that night, I scratched the tickets. I saw the star symbol and thought, 'Well at least I won my money back' assuming it would be a $10 win. Much to my surprise, I revealed a prize of $500,000". She also said of the experience that, "I tried to remain calm, but I knew right then and there this had just changed my life!"

The woman said she was thinking of all the ways the predicted money would come into her life, not thinking about the lottery tickets in her purse.

The luck lady plans to pay off her car, take a cruise with a friend and invest the remainder of her winnings.

Astrologer Linda Simons has made an analysis of Jupiter's entry into Gemini that occurs on May 25, 2024 and continues till June 9, 2025, according to Western astrology. Simons explains that, "Jupiter is the planet associated with expansion, growth, optimism and luck". Therefore, "Jupiter in Gemini will push us to think deeply and communicate. But if the truth be told, Jupiter is not all that comfortable in Gemini because Jupiter rules Sagittarius, the opposite sign. And Sagittarius is always looking for the higher meaning in life. Jupiter in the sign of Gemini can be an extremely busy time, involving more reading, learning and talking. Simons also says that this alignment will lead to heightened activity on social media, so we need to be, "Open-minded when Jupiter is in Gemini and learn from others."

The presence of Jupiter in Gemini will have consequences for each of the zodiac signs and Linda has recommendations for each.

It should be mentioned that Western astrology calculations differ from Vedic sidereal astrology and according to sidereal astrology, Jupiter does not enter Gemini at this point in time.

Moxy Hotels and the astrology app, Sanctuary announced a yearlong "Cosmic Curations" partnership in January. Available at all of the 60-plus Moxy hotels worldwide, this travel partnership includes astro-inspired cocktails and coffee, pre-recorded horoscopes and localised programming like an aura photography session or Full Moon watch party. The launch party in Miami, included tarot readings, a "choose-your-crystal" station, aura photos, and even beach balls decorated to look like the Moon.

Astro-themed hotel packages seem to be a new trend. As Haley Houseman, Sanctuary Creative Director explained, "Recently, we have seen a growing trend of people planning their vacations based on the stars, not only looking for inspiration about where to go based on their sign, but what their planetary lines tell them about when to go, and who to go with. Our partnership this year with Moxy Hotels is specifically designed to help enable this type of travel in 2024."

Other hotels have leaned into their existing astro-appeal to launch themed packages. The Memphian in Memphis, Tennessee features a bar called Tiger & Peacock with a stunning painted zodiac ceiling. The hotel opened in 2021 and after seeing how much of a draw the ceiling and accompanying themed cocktails were, they launched an "Astrology Overnight" package for 2024 featuring zodiac themed gifts and a roof deck stargazing session.

Another apparently popular trend in astrology related travel is that of 'Astrocartography'. This is a field of astrology that involves mapping out your birth chart over a map of the Earth to identify which locations intersect with various planetary lines, thus making them lucky or unlucky spots for you. Interest in astrocartography has increased exponentially in recent years. Google search trends show that searches for "Astrocartography" hit a five-year peak in December 2023. While on TikTok, videos tagged #astrocartography have more than 116 million views.

A new survey of 2,069 U.S. adults from a Harris Poll, conducted in February 2024 reveals that millennials are the generation most interested in astrology by a wide margin. Gen Z is markedly more skeptical. While 83 percent of millennials surveyed said they are either "somewhat" or a "total" believer in astrology, only 62 percent of Gen Zers said the same. When you look at all ages of Americans as a whole, 69 percent were astro-believers, which means Gen-Z is less interested in astrology than Gen-X too.

The survey also recorded that 47% of all Americans agreed with the statement, "Astrology gives me more confidence".

The New York Post seems to think so, citing the release of Taylor Swift's 11th studio album, 'The Tortured Poets Department', as evidence. They also say, "Swift's double album was released mere hours before the planet of love (Venus) and the planet of communication (Mercury) conjoined in the cardinal cauldron of Aries."

Kas & Poly is a new restaurant in Manila, that offers its patrons a zodiac based, 12 course menu, ala carte meals inspired by the signs and drinks based on planets. The food is based on Mediterranean cuisine, specifically Turkish, Italian, Spanish and Greek flavours.

The restaurant hosts a Gemini Lounge and will soon be offering a, "12-course zodiac tasting menu coming this May. This course is crafted to correspond with the 12 astrological signs." Some of the items that can presently be ordered include, the "xAquarius Chelo Kebab".
