Here is what is happening in the sky astrologically in May 2023! All transits are in eastern standard time. The two stand-out transits this month are the Full Moon Eclipse in Scorpio and Jupiter entering Taurus.
On May 5th, there is a Full Moon Eclipse in the transformative sign of Scorpio.
The upcoming eclipse marks the end of an 18-month cycle that offers an opportunity for profound emotional healing. While Scorpio transits are often associated with endings, it's important to remember that with endings come new beginnings.
You are being given the opportunity to confront and release old patterns that have been holding you back. By letting go of what no longer serves you, you can make room for a new way of being.
The energy of a Full Moon Eclipse can be intense and sometimes challenging, so it's important to take care of yourself during this time. If you haven't established (or prioritized) a self care routine, now is the perfect time to start.
On May 16th, Jupiter leaves Aries and enters Taurus.
Until May 2024, Jupiter will be transiting the luxurious sign of Taurus. When Jupiter is in Taurus, we can expect a period of growth and expansion in areas related to our material possessions, finances, and personal values.
During this transit, we may find ourselves feeling more grounded and focused on work or passion projects, and we may experience an increase in financial abundance or resources.
All the exciting ideas we dreamed up while Jupiter was in Aries, now come to life on the physical plane under the oppulant eye of Taurus.
It's important to remain cautious and realistic during this transit however. Because Jupiter expands everything it touches, and this can sometimes lead to a tendency towards materialism and excessive spending.
