The lusty month of May: your numerology cycles for May 1–15
It’s May, it’s May,
the lusty month of May.
That lovely month when everyone goes
The words from the song “The Lusty Month of May” from Camelot, an old Broadway musical from the ’60s, are quite descriptive of the energy of this month. The blossoms are still blossoming, and Vancouver is at its greatest, greenest potential—with City Hall even coming up with a method for dealing with compost. Who will say this is not the greatest city in the world to live in? Especially in the lusty month of May.
To find out what May has in store, calculate your key number by adding the day and month of your birth. Continue adding until you arrive at a single digit. For example, if your birthday is October 14, your personal number is determined as follows: 10 + 14 = 24. Then 2 + 4 = 6, and you have the key number (6) that you will keep for life.
1 key number
This is the month of “Yes, you may,” and it’s important to notice there is a certain kind of magic associated with it. No doubt, it is a time for closet cleaning, finding flip-flops and dumping what is not working for you. Fortunately or unfortunately, this will include not only projects and ideas that you have discovered are going nowhere, but also perhaps people who are preventing you from moving forward.
2 key number
Set yourself the task of starting over. Have a plan for the seeds that you must plant in your life, materially and emotionally. Sort those seeds and plant what you know is most likely to blossom in career life, physical body (yoga, boot camp?) and emotional relationships. There may be a tendency to be extremely self-involved in this “I am centre of the world” kind of month. Selfishness now, however, has a very large price tag. A little like a credit-card bill.
3 key number
Idleness is the mother of all vices. So, though this is a time to keep a low profile, it is definitely not a time to be inactive. Move forward and cultivate ideas and projects that were begun last month, but for the most part, you must do it quietly. A zipper on the lower part of your face is a very useful fashion accessory for this time.
4 key number
Energy is expanding now, and you have more opportunity to be social, have fun, and be creative. However you express your creativity, whether it be through speaking, dancing, writing or problem-solving, you will be blessed with the opportunity to succeed. That strange sensation near your shoulder blades is the unfolding of your social butterfly wings.
5 key number
May is a month in which you’re going to have to work, work, work. This in itself is not a negative, as under this energy you will be naturally inclined to put your shoulder to the wheel. However, it is a test cycle month and how you negotiate your tests, not only in work but in personal life—especially family and romantic relationships—will determine future successes or failures. A stiff upper lip will be an asset.
6 key number
The energy of this month is vibrant and spontaneous, if perhaps a little accident-prone. There will be a temptation to try and cram way too much activity into a short period of time. In close personal relationships, pay attention to how you express yourself. That space between the cup and the lip is fraught with Freudian slips. By all means speak your mind, but relationships of all kinds could be compromised if you don’t stop to think before you open your mouth.
7 key number
May will be lusty, especially for you. Under the energy of this cycle month you are bound to be extremely romantic, or at least have lots of romantic thoughts. Responsibility, though, looms large in this kind of energy. Pay attention to your relationships with family and close friends or you will rue the month.
8 key number
Look back over the last few months to see what you have learned. Spiritual wisdom is close at hand. Your intuitive voice is strong and accurate, and is most easily heard in quiet places or out in nature. Choose a meditation or yoga course to put you closer to your true, authentic self.
9 key number
In the energy of this month you can take your ideas and really make them work on the material plane. You are in your power, use it constructively. This is also a time when you are able to create balance around you. Pay attention to your physical body health-wise, but also be aware of your emotional relationships. You will come across as being extremely attractive—work it.
