Work Your Way Through May With This Oracle Reading | Clozette


At every start of the month, navigate through your hectic work and personal lives with a little guidance from the stars. Reflect and be on top of your goals with the help of Flavia Lee's oracle readings.


The start of the year didn’t feel quite too far, and yet we’re already starting with May. Feeling quite lost in this fast-paced flow of time? Here's a bit of guidance, in the form of an oracle reading, now that we're on to a new quarter.  Like tarot, oracle reading is a directive tool that helps you find the confirmation you are seeking to realise within you. It shows you your current situation, your life path, and suggests a possible next step. Ahead, your reading for May 2019 — courtesy of Flavia Lee from FullMoonary.

After a long period of rest, everything is finally awakening. Since we’re in Saturn Retrograde, it’s the perfect time to review your life goals and mission. Be very honest with yourself and imagine this time as the one where you'll submit your quarterly report to yourself. Think about the things you've done so far and reflect upon how much you've gone through. From there, adjust your life’s direction accordingly. Learn what you should let go of in order to accomplish your plans.


Don't be afraid to listen and let your life's reflections direct you to the truth. Are you doing what your heart desires? Then your hard work will be paid off. But if you are not sticking with your life mission, or you’re simply doing something you don’t love, you will feel its negative effects.

Keep reviewing and adjusting your habits and choices depending on what works best for you, and always be open to making small changes first. Take it one step at a time so you can gradually witness your progress. Eventually, you will gain pace and move forward with more strength and motivation.



Keep in mind that it’s time to get down to business. Playtime is done. Be more serious about yourself, your life and goals. A retreat and some rest might be just what you need so you can better "hear" your thoughts and goals. But after you reflect and review, follow your heart. Stick to your life plan, and everything will turn out fine.

When we think of spring, what comes to mind are images of blooming florals and pleasant, sunny weather. But while flower beds are indeed a highlight of the season, sunny weather is not always a given during springtime especially during its early days when temperatures can fall as low as 7°C in some areas. It's the kind of weather that can be tricky to dress for. You don't have to bundle up but you should still put on some layers to be comfortable. Ahead, a tropical girl's guide to dressing for spring.


Choose a warm, lightweight outwear

Yes, you will still need to have a coat in hand even during spring. The good news is, you don't have to lug around a heavy-duty one. This season, you can get away with pieces that don't have any shearlings or other heavy inner linings. Instead, choose lightweight coats made from warm fabrics such as felt coats. You can also go for cotton blend coats or parkas like this one from UNIQLO for days when the temperature is on the warmer side. 


Layer up

Take note that there's a difference between bundling up and layering. Dressing up for spring doesn't require piling more than three pieces of clothing. Even one or two is already sufficient to keep yourself comfortably warm. You can go for a long-sleeved top paired with a pinafore or you could also layer some leggings underneath a mini skirt for extra warmth. It's all about mixing and matching light layers of clothing!


Add pops of colour to perk things up

It seems cliche, but it's true that adding pops of colour to your outfit can make all the difference when dressing for spring. Since you're essentially still wearing coats and heavy jackets, sticking to an all-neutral palette can make you look like you were stuck in the dead of winter. Having a hard time incorporating colour into your wardrobe? We suggest you go for subtle additions of hues like picking a muted pastel-coloured skirt or dress and layer it with your usual monochrome pieces. 


Scarves are still going to be helpful

Third pieces like scarves, particularly lightweight ones, are still helpful during spring. As the season is marked by changes in temperatures and weather, wearing a scarf during chilly mornings is great and come the warm afternoon, you can just easily just tuck them back into your bag. It's a very handy accessory to have during springtime so don't forget to pack one.



Closed shoes are still the best choice

The most common mistake tropical girls make when dressing for spring is packing sandals and slip-on footwear with the expectation that the weather is warm enough. But take it from us: closed shoes are still the best choice during the season. Thigh-high boots can be paired with mini skirts while ankle boots can go well with any pants. Sneakers are also a nice, versatile option that you could match with both dresses and pants.
