May Astrology 2024: Stroking the fires of abundance by Audra English @lifespiritssocietyofmagick

May is often considered one of the best times for luck and wealth magick due to a combination of cultural, historical, and astrological factors that converge to create a potent period for such practices. Here are some key reasons why May is particularly auspicious for luck and wealth magick:

  1. Beltane and Fertility: May begins with the celebration of Beltane on May 1st. This ancient festival is deeply rooted in themes of fertility, abundance, and new beginnings. The rituals and energies focused on during Beltane are believed to enhance growth and prosperity, making it an ideal time to perform magick that draws wealth and good fortune.

  2. Vibrant Nature and Growth: May is a time when nature is visibly lush and growing, symbolizing prosperity and abundance. This natural wealth strongly supports magickal workings focused on similar themes. The flourishing of plants and the birth of new animals are seen as signs of Mother Earth’s generosity, which can be mirrored in one's own life through magick focused on increasing personal abundance.

  3. Astrological Influences: Taurus, which covers April 20th to May 20th, is an earth sign associated with stability, luxury, material possessions, and practical results. The sun's presence in Taurus lends energy to endeavors that require endurance, stability, and material accumulation. Following Taurus, the sun enters Gemini, encouraging versatility and openness to new ideas, which can be advantageous for wealth strategies and bringing in diverse sources of income.

  4. Increasing Light: The increasing light during May (in the Northern Hemisphere) is symbolic of clarity, truth, and the revelation of new paths. This can be beneficial for magickal practices, as clear intentions are vital for successful manifestations, especially in areas related to wealth and prosperity.

  5. Historical Celebrations of Growth: Many cultures have festivals in May that celebrate growth and fertility. For example, the Roman festival of Floralia, dedicated to Flora, the goddess of flowers and fertility, took place at the end of April and beginning of May. These historical associations with growth and prosperity bleed into the collective unconscious, making May a powerfully symbolic month for practicing wealth and luck magick.

  6. Connection to Earth’s Energy: May is a time when the energy of the earth itself is highly accessible and potent. Engaging in magick that taps into this earth energy, such as planting seeds both physically and metaphorically, can be particularly effective. This makes it an excellent time for setting intentions and launching new ventures or investments that you wish to see grow.

Manifesting wealth in May can be an exciting and rewarding process, particularly if you incorporate a blend of rituals, spells, affirmations, and crystal work. I'll be giving out tons of ideas, free spells, and giveaways online this month (make sure you follow our social media accounts) but in the meantime are a few things you can do yourself to manifest cash:

May Astrology 2024 Rituals and Spells

  1. New Moon Abundance Check: During the New Moon in May, write yourself an "Abundance Check." On the check, where it says "Pay to," write your name, and in the amount box, either write an amount or "Paid in full" to symbolize infinite abundance. Sign the check with "The Universe." Place it on your altar or a special place where you will see it regularly.

  2. Beltane Prosperity Spell: Gather green candles for growth and prosperity, cinnamon for success, and patchouli for grounding. Light the candles and circle them with coins and notes. Sprinkle cinnamon on the flames (carefully) while visualizing your wealth increasing, and chant, "Wealth flow, wealth grow, wealth stay, wealth here to stay." Bury the ashes in a plant pot as an act of growth.

  3. Prosperity Jar: Fill a small jar with items that symbolize wealth to you, such as coins, gold-colored items, crystals that bring wealth (citrine, green aventurine, tigers eye, etc.), a bay leaf (for success), and dill (for money drawing). Seal the jar with green wax and keep it in your workspace or home to attract wealth.


  • Daily Wealth Affirmations: Start each day by affirming your wealth. Examples include:

  • "I am a magnet for prosperity, and abundance flows to me from multiple sources."

  • "Every day I live my dream of abundance and success."

  • "Wealth and riches are naturally drawn to me."

Crystal Work

  • Crystals for Wealth: Use crystals like Citrine, Pyrite, and Green Aventurine. Keep these crystals in your wallet, purse, or at your workspace to attract wealth. You can also create a crystal grid with these stones to amplify their energy.

  • Crystal Meditation: Hold a piece of Citrine or Green Aventurine while meditating. Visualize your wealth goals as already achieved. Feel the emotions associated with your success and let the crystal amplify your intentions.

Practical Ideas

  • Vision Board: Create a vision board that depicts your wealth aspirations. Include images of what you want to acquire, places you wish to travel, and symbols of financial security. Place it where you will see it every day to keep your goals at the forefront of your mind.

  • Financial Planning Ritual: Make a ritual out of your financial planning sessions. Light a green candle, place Pyrite on your desk, and start planning your budget, savings, and investments. Doing this consistently can turn routine financial management into a powerful manifestation practice.

Engaging with Nature

  • Garden for Wealth: Plant herbs and flowers associated with prosperity, such as basil, mint, and sunflowers. Gardening can ground your intentions in the physical world and nurture growth both literally and figuratively.

This month is going to be FIRE for manifestation! We will be helping you claim abundance for yourself all month long, so make sure you follow us on our social media accounts and keep our site bookmarked for some fun sales and giveaways we'll have coming up.
