Continue to The Horoscope For May 2023 :
At the full moon lunar eclipse on May 5, a work project will require a great deal of concentration, so you will need to keep an eye on it. The bus carrying this project could have its wheels fall off and roll in every direction at the full moon lunar eclipse in Scorpio on May 5, plus or minus five days. It will be up to you to decide whether it’s worth fixing. The situation will come to a culmination or crisis in a sudden or unexpected way. Forces behind the scenes have not been easy to spot, for one or more people have not been fully transparent with you. When this news is fully revealed, it may shock you.
People tend to reveal their true character at eclipse time. It’s not a good situation, but Jupiter, the giver of gifts and luck, is eyeing all that is going on. He will contact Saturn, which is positioned in your career sector, and together, in an effort to add stability to a potentially stormy career situation, they can do much to save the day. Jupiter, a planet often referred to as the planet of miracles, can be effective—it all depends on how you feel about the emerging situation and how you decide to handle it.
This full moon on May 5 is given triple strength by the fact that it is a lunar eclipse. Saturn, presently in your career and prestigious reputation sector (your tenth house), is the natural ruler of your house of other people’s money, including commissions, bonuses, royalties, licensing fees, loans, mortgages, reimbursed expenses, taxes, and the like. A conflict over a financial matter seems to be a large part of the problem, or you may have a large, necessary expense come up.
Don’t rush to judgment. Your ruler Mercury will be retrograde until May 14, clouding the relevant details of the situation. There is a bigger reason not to act quickly: News that comes to you at eclipse time tends to stir up a lot of cosmic dust, and until the dust settles, it’s hard to choose a path forward. Every eclipse has a second act, and more news will be forthcoming within a short time—a few days or weeks.
By May 19, the new moon (not an eclipse) will bring five heavenly bodies to your twelfth house of secrets, so be circumspect with your dealings with others. People may not be supporting you in the way you would normally assume they would, and instead, they might be working at cross purposes with you. Pluto will be in a hard angle to Jupiter, so a past agreement or an ongoing project may need to be tweaked, reassessed, renegotiated, or abandoned altogether. This is not a good month to take risks, so proceed with a more cautious, conservative approach through all that happens.
Mars will remain in Cancer until May 20, so during the first three weeks of May, you will be spending more money than usual, a trend that started March 25. Venus is in Cancer too, your financial salary and savings house, so if you are buying clothes or accessories for the coming season, they will be quite beautiful. On May 26, you might find a gorgeous item on the Internet that you feel you must have when Venus connects to Uranus.
As soon as Mars moves into Leo on May 20, to stay until July 10, it will be time to travel more often, and that is sure to be music to your ears. You need not choose a distant point—nearby locations will bring you great pleasure.
You are in a year of preparation for the Emerald Year that is coming, starting May 25, 2024, and extending a full year. You have been waiting 11 years for this sparkling year—when Jupiter will enter Gemini—you have one more year to go. The more you prepare for it, the bigger and better that year will be. You have the time to get ready, so start dreaming with a purpose, and imagine all that is possible.
