May Monthly Insight
Kimberly Hastings, May 1, 2022
The month of May is named after the Greek Goddess Maia. “Maia” translates to “the nursing mother.” Maia is the goddess that represents growth, both in nature and in business. In May, the Romans celebrated Floralia, a festival for fertility which lasted from April 27th to May 3rd. During this holiday, the ancient Romans would dance, perform plays and put on banquets.
On May 1st Pagans celebrate Beltane, also known as “May Day.” This holiday typically falls between the spring and summer equinoxes and celebrates the spring season, as well as the summer. Beltane is associated with fertility and is celebrated with bonfires, dancing, and rituals. Modern-day pagans celebrate with a maypole, which is a pole with ribbons attached. During a Maypole ceremony each person grabs a ribbon and dances around the pole in a way that weaves the ribbons in a certain pattern. Practitioners may also weave flowers into their hair or create a floral wreath to wear upon their head as a celebration of spring or prepare “May baskets,” filled them with flowers and goodwill, which are then to someone in need of care, such as an elderly friend, or someone who is recovering from an illness.
Taurus reigns over us until May 20th, when Gemini takes over on the 21st. Taurus will continue to provide practical and grounded energy, until Gemini steps in with a more spontaneous and playful energy. May’s birth flower is the Lilly of Valley, which symbolizes motherhood, sweetness and purity of heart, making it a wonderful flower for Mother’s Day. The birthstone for May is Emerald. Emerald supports strength in character and brings patience, wisdom, and balance.

May’s full moon is called the “Flower Moon,” as the spring season is in full effect with blooming flowers bringing an abundance of beauty for us to enjoy. The Native American tribe Cree called the May Moon the “Budding Moon” as a celebration of the flowers beginning to emerge. Additionally, the Dakota and Lakota tribes called it the “Planting Moon,” to mark the time of year when seeds should be planted to ensure a prosperous farming season.

May 2022 is a 2 Universal Month, the number of cooperation. However, since the number 2 is made up of two 1s, there will be a strong sense of independence as well. The challenge this month will be to balance the need for self-reflection with the need for partnership.
Additionally, May, being the fifth month of the year, brings the energy of the number 5, the number of travel, adventure and transition.
For most, we’ve been cooped up indoors working from home, remote learning, etc. and haven’t been able to enjoy time outdoors and with others. As a result, it has become our normal routine to spend more time indoors. Many of us are probably feeling the need to reconnect with nature and our community as part of our overall health.
This month, embrace the warmer weather and go explore what the world has to offer. Traveling doesn’t have to be visiting a new state or country. It could be learning more about the local community and what it has to offer. Go outside your comfort zone and you’ll be amazed at what you’ll learn about yourself.
