In May, Merlin's messages about following your passion are echoed by the Celtic goddess Oonagh, who reminds us that in order to reach our goals we must be willing to invest the time it takes to see a project to completion. She cautions against taking on too many projects, which will leave you feeling lost and overwhelmed. Instead, decide what is REALLY important to you and focus your time and attention on what matters to you. When you have seen one project through to completion, you can always focus your time and attention on something new.
May ~ Oonagh ~ Easy Does It
"There is no need to hurry or force things to happen. Everything is occurring in perfect timing."
"Nurturing a cause or relationship is a long-term commitment, and one that can't be rushed. This level of devotion comes from a place of deep loving and concern. I care what happens to my planet and to my loved ones so much that I'm willing to stick with them through thick and thin. This isn't always easy, but to me it's the only way to ensure that matters are resolved and healed. I listen to the passionate stirrings of my heart. I reach out and take action to let my loved ones know that I deeply care about them. I take action to spur on my pet causes. Never mind what other people think; YOU will benefit by carrying through with your priorities. You'll feel so good about yourself if you make time for the relationships and projects that truly count in your heart. Do what's important to you and do it with absolute devotion! But remember that there's no competition for your true life's purpose, so there's no need to worry, hurry or feel that you have to force things to happen."

About Oonagh (pronounced OO-nuh):
The Celtic goddess Oonagh is married to Fionnbharr, the leader of the Irish Tuatha De Danaans. Oonagh and her clan were some of the original inhabitants of Ireland. When the Gaels invaded their land, the Tuathas didn't run or fight back. Instead they transformed themselves into leprechauns. Their ingenious solution allowed them to stay in Ireland in peace. Call upon Oonagh for help with your own transitions and she'll guide you in creative and magical ways.
