The Knight of Crystals showed up for this week’s forecast. This grounded, stabilizing energy, and could be a much-needed oracle for some after the recent Scorpio Full Moon.
The Knight of Crystals (or Knight of Pentacles) connects to the earth element, which concerns itself with themes that include practicality, stability, work, and the body.
This card is often a quiet presence, preferring to stay focused on one thing at a time. It’s a card that can help us to slow down, prioritize, and concentrate on doing what has to be done.
With Mercury moving into earthy Taurus on Tuesday, May 16, there will be a lot of opportunity for groundedness in the weeks to come. Mercury connects to our thoughts and ideas. In Taurus, it can help us to stay focused on the things that matter most.
We are also in the final days of Taurus season. On Saturday, May 20, the Sun moves into Gemini and the element of air.
If things have felt a bit precarious lately, or if you’ve really been feeling the need to slow down, concentrate, and figure out what kind of foundation you’d like to stand on, these last few days of Taurus can be good ones to do it in.
That way, you can enter into Gemini time ready to get the mental agility and decisiveness that can become available after the 20th. Gemini is communicative, smart, and social. It’s the time of year to put ideas into motion, to use your voice, and to express yourself in a way that is clear, productive, and conducive to your own evolution.
People get great ideas when the Sun is in Gemini. That’s not to say great ideas don’t happen throughout the rest of the year, but this is a time when our minds can be particularly receptive to new concepts.
Writers, actors, and other creative types who work in the medium of language might want to put some time aside in the weeks ahead to flesh out a new project or make significant headway on an existing one.
Here is a mantra for you to work with for the week:
I open myself to new concepts and conversations.
Until next time,
