THE (MAJOR) ASTROLOGY OF MAY 2023
Monday, May 1st:
Pluto stations retrograde- 10:08 AM PST
Exploring internal suppression, integrating external experiences with
internal transformation, reexamining current power dynamics, psyche
regeneration, review sources of anxieties/fear
Mercury RX Sun Cazimi - 4:27 PM PST
The halfway point of a Mercury retrograde and usually when we start to
get the big picture of what this retrograde is all about.
Often less confusing from this point onward.
Thursday, May 4th
Venus Square Neptune 10:40 AM PST
‘Lose yourself in pleasure’ type of energy, indulgence of romantic
ideals/fantasies. Misidentifying a relationship’s status. Seeing what you
want to see in someone/situation. Venus’s sextile to Jupiter will probably
make any fantasy feel pretty good, while packing lessons for later.
Great day for Star Wars Cosplay tho :)
Friday, May 6th
Final Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio 10:34 AM PST
The takeaways of what has matured in this area of your life from the last
year and a half should start to become clearer in the months to come.
A very cathartic, purging, and finalizing vibe with Mars and Saturn in a sign-based trine.
Sunday, May 7th
Venus enters Cancer 7:24 AM PST
A welcome relief for the sign of Cancer as Venus arrives with aloe-vera
in hand, ready to soothe any burn marks Mars may have left.
Tuesday, May 9th
Sun conjunct Uranus 18’56
From “ah-ha” to “whaaaaat?” moments, Uranus Sun combos never
fail to surprise and shake-up the radical within.
Sunday, May 14th
Mercury Stations Direct 5º51 at 8:16 PM PST
Thank god! We just had a Mercury Retrograde sandwiched between
an eclipse (in the same axis), co-present with the nodes and
Uranus, + Pluto creeping, whoa- glad that’s over!
*Tuesday, May 16th
Jupiter enters Taurus 10:20 AM PST
The mac-daddy (who says that anymore, I’m ashamed) transit of the month as Jupiter is ready to spend the
next year bestowing its gifts, wisdom, and sense of adventure in stable, steady, and bountiful Taurus.
Definitely check out which house Taurus rules in your chart and review what happened twelve years
ago when Jupiter last blessed this sign.
Saturday, May 20th
Mars enters Leo 8:31 AM PST
an AI generator says it looks like this…
Sunday, May 21st
Sun enters Gemini 12:09 AM PST
With Mercury (Gemini's ruler) coming back on lines our mind s
hould soon begin humming at a pleasant speed. Although there will be
mandatory toll road stop in the form of an early degree Sun Saturn square.
May 20st - May 23rd
A big ole, fixed-sign Pluto Mars Jupiter T-square
Mars will first oppose Pluto and then Jupiter. I don't love a Mars Jupiter
opposition as its like Godzilla and Mothra duking it out in a crowded
citycenter. However, having Jupiter as the ref (apex planet) gives
sme omehope that not too many metaphorical sky-rises are taken
out in theprocess. Bold moves, and bold action can be anticipated,
but keep your sixthsenses on as Pluto's involvement can speak to
an unseen force or power dynamic at play.
