WATER SERPENT MONTH of MERRY MAY 2011
By Susan Levitt
The new Moon on Monday May 2 (11:51 PM PDT) began the month of the Water Serpent. Now is the opportunity to shed your winter skin and be transformed! The Serpent is a universal symbol of healing and rebirth. As the Serpent sheds its skin, it is reborn.
Please do not be afraid of Serpent! Serpent embodies mystery and magic, and has a place of honor in many world traditions. In Chinese astrology, Serpent is the sign of wisdom, healing, and creativity.
This Water Serpent month of May 2011 is time to shed your skin and experience the beauty of nature in springtime. Due to the Water element, it is easier to tune into your emotions, feel deeply, and to appreciate family, friends, and loved ones.
Water attributes are to be in touch with emotions, have powerful intuition, and be highly sensitivity — yet stay strong regardless of obstacles in the path. Water is a yin feminine element, but feminine energy is not considered weak in Chinese astrology. Instead, Water is the most powerful element because it can move around any obstacle in its path without losing its essentail nature. Water can, in time, dissolve the hardest mountains.
This merry month of May is also time for personal creativity. The artists of the Chinese zodiac are Serpent, Sheep, and Hare. So this Serpent month during Hare year is the time to try your hand at creative endeavors. Luck is with you to be reborn, transformed, and to create a new you!
