May Astrology RECAP 2023


May 2023 is a month of significant astrological transits and aspects. Taurus season dominates the first half of the month, bringing a focus on material and practical matters, as well as values and self-worth. The Taurus New Moon on May 19th provides an opportunity for new beginnings and manifestation.

However, mid-month sees a challenging aspect as Venus forms a square with Neptune, May 17th. This aspect can heighten confusion and idealization in relationships, and may prompt us to confront our illusions or hidden desires. The Taurus New Moon on May 19th provides an opportunity for new beginnings and manifestation. It will also likely emphasizes the need to find balance between practicality and wisdom in decision-making. Overall, May 2023 is a dynamic month that prompts us to consider our values, relationships, and personal growth.


5.5 Pluto RX in Aquarius

Starting on May 5th, 2023, the planet of transformation, Pluto, will be retrograding through the sign of Aquarius. This could be a time of big changes, as Aquarius is a sign of innovation and new beginnings.

During this retrograde, there could be a shift in the way we think about our relationships, and how we interact with those around us. We may find ourselves questioning the status quo, and looking for ways to make life more meaningful.

It's important to remember that during this time, we should take care to keep our emotions in check, and focus on finding ways to stay grounded. We may need to take a step back from certain situations and relationships in order to gain clarity, and make decisions from a place of wisdom.

Pluto retrograde in Aquarius is an opportunity to reflect on our lives and our relationships, and make changes for the better. It's time to look for ways to make our lives more fulfilling and meaningful, and to create a better future for ourselves and those around us.

5.14.23 Mercury Direct in Taurus

Mercury is direct but its energetic shift is not completely over as we’re in the shadow period until May 31st. This is a great time to really reflect on the things that were brought to the forefront during this retrograde period. Taurus influences us to still be willing to be objective to new ways of growth. Things are most unstable around stationing days so just be mindful of that energy when making plans. Even in reflection, remember that things that are changing inside will take time to manifest physically. Influenced by recent eclipse energy, this change will be slow to implement over the next six months, with lasting impact. Be light hearted in your approach to communication but direct and honest. Tension can come from the lack of clarity in intimate relationships. (friendships too)

5.16.23 Jupiter enters Taurus

Jupiter enters Taurus May 16th. Visual results are of importance but when it comes to finances, Jupiter in Taurus is lucrative energy. Primarily due to the instinctive relationship between financial security and stability. This aspect makes us inspect how we spend our money and if they’re of wise investments. If we’re willing to be disciplined, we can separate social status and personal success. Taurus is in it for the long haul. So, any intuitive “money making” ideas you may have tucked away for a rainy day, now is the time to begin breathing life into it. Jupiter squares Pluto & Mars. This can breed chaos as we struggle with who we are and how we show up in the world. Its easier to project insecurities onto our peers or even in passive judgment. Tread lightly, it’s easy to “stir the pot”

5.1.23 Jupiter Squares Pluto

There is a stubbornness to this aspect and willingness to fight. This sparks our revolutionary attitudes. Careful not to become overzealous, though. Real change takes time. So, what may have seemed easy to achieve may be hard to commit to. Mainly due to internal vs external expectations. This energy can be utilized to inspire growth if we don’t allow our emotions to cloud our better judgment due to Jupiter’s square with Mars. Take the opportunity for healthy adventure that may arise here, both literally and figuratively.

5.19.23 New Moon in Taurus

Happy New Moon in Taurus! It’s time to set brand new intentions or revise old ones for a brand new cycle. This Taurus new moon will encourage us to have a healthy balance between work and play. Taurus likes to indulge and at its best, willing to be accountable. As the new moon harmonizes with Mars Neptune and Pluto, it’ll impact our inspiration and motivation with determination, especially within efforts to start fresh. This energy gives us a real opportunity to make very important changes in our lives that will have lasting impact. It’s time to reevaluate our relationship to money & our possessions so we can discover what truly makes us happy and feel fulfilled. As this week comes to a close the overall theme has encouraged us to be willing to grow internally first! & in the face of fear use faith and knowledge to overcome.

5.20.23 Mars enters Leo

Mars is in Leo from May 20th until July 10th. We’re confident, proud and sometimes boastful about it. We’re willing to be dramatic to get results. Passion is high on all fronts, sex drive, temperament, you name it! If we weren’t taking charge in our life , this energy definitely rekindles a passion to make it happen now. The negative qualities of this energy is that it can make us attention seeking or arrogant. If we feel disrespected, we’re quick to take it to the extreme as our fuse is short.

5.21.23 Gemini Season

It's Gemini Season; Happy Solar Return Gemini

Challenges will either hinder us or motivate us as we’re prone to extremes. It’ll likely cause the freedom of choice to make us indecisive if we’re stuck between who we are and who others want us to be. Gemini does have two sides, usually swinging from one extreme to the other.

Gemini reminds us that being humble does not mean a lack of confidence. However, being aware of perfectionist qualities will keep us from burning out mentally. Especially as we enter the season transitioning through the 12th house, that of things unseen and without physical form.

This will impact our imagination in a vivid way, with both negative and positive qualities. In some scenarios we may still feel alienated in a room full of people. We may find ourselves questioning what is authentic to us. Don’t jump down a rabbit hole of negative thoughts or what ifs, be present. Now is all that matters.

Use this energy to accept and embrace the many things that may interest you. I wouldn't suggest this energy to make long term decisions even though mercury has gone direct. Even in intimate scenarios keep it light and fun. Taking things too seriously will likely cause us to lose interest all together.

I know we're super late so thank you, if you're here. For the sake of honoring my consistency, heres a recap of May Astrology for 2023!

Til soon,
