Now that May is here, spring is in full swing! May was named for Maia, the Greek goddess of spring. She represents fertility and motherhood and embodies the concept of growth. May is also a month when special devotions to the Blessed Virgin Mary take place. Don’t forget that May 12 is Mother’s Day, too!
Taurus rules May until the 20th. Gemini then rises from May 21 to June 21. May’s birth flower is the Lily of the Valley. It symbolizes a “return to happiness,” along with purity, luck, and humility. Emeralds, known as the “stone of successful love” are this month’s birthstone. As their nickname suggests, emeralds help nurture the Heart Chakra with their soothing energy. They teach about compassion and unconditional love, and are a perfect stone for this vibrant month of spring.

Continuing in our study of Universal Numbers, May is an 8 month. The number 8 symbolizes
abundance, personal power, and growth. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself taking on more leadership and authority roles.
As the 8 is the number of prosperity, we’ll also see success and goals accomplished this month.
This is the time to harvest what we have worked for over the past months. The important thing to remember is no accomplishment is too small to celebrate. Even the smallest achievement shows your progress. You’ve put all the hard work and deserve to celebrate all you have achieved.
