May 2023: Astrological Events + Tarot Reading

by | Apr 26, 2023 | Astrology, Tarot Readings

May is a month of fresh beginnings and opportunities. As the days get longer, the sunshine brighter, and the air warmer, there’s an unmistakable sense of renewed enthusiasm in the air. With blooming flowers and buzzing birds imprinting the landscape with their presence, May serves as a reminder that life is constantly finding ways to reinvent itself. Whether it’s enjoying a picnic in your local park or stargazing on a cloudless night, this is a great month to live your best life.

There are many astrological transits in May. I have listed here the ones that are most likely to effect your life and your readings.

01 May: Beltane and Pluto goes retrograde in Aquarius

Beltane is an ancient Celtic festival that serves as a reminder for the importance of community, renewal and healing. Celebrated on the first day of May, Beltane is the ideal time to focus on strengthening relationships, connecting with nature and rekindling inner sparks that have gone dormant throughout winter.

As we move into the warmer months of spring and summer, Beltane invites us to reflect on our hopes for the future, heal from any difficult times that may have come before and find joy in celebrating life’s wonders with those around us. It is a time to celebrate unity and growth as we set positive intentions for what is to come.

On the astrological front, as Pluto enters the final days of its transit through Aquarius, now is the ideal time to look back on all that has been revealed during this period. Take advantage of this astrological window to reflect, learn and grow.

Consider how the changes that are happening around you can be embraced and used to help you shape your future and prepare for what lies ahead in the next decade. By actively participating in your own destiny, you’ll be able to move forward into a more powerful version of yourself.

02 May: Pallas enters Leo

As asteroid Pallas moves through the sign of Leo, this is a time to honor your inner royalty and summon your courage and strength. Use this astrological energy to take risks and be brave in the pursuit of your dreams. But be mindful to not put yourself too much in the spotlight, as danger could come knocking at any given moment. Take risks when it makes sense and avoid drama whenever possible to ensure that you can savor the successes coming your way.

05 May: Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio

Today’s eclipse in Scorpio is heightening the already intense energies of this mysterious sign, potentially making even the most gentle-natured among us more aggressive and prone to outbursts. Feelings of uneasiness and paranoia aren’t far away. It’s important to stay aware that while such unpredictable energy, paranoia and edginess are all heightened, it is all the more crucial to check your feelings before taking action.

Conflict may come easy but will be hard to shake off so try to avoid making any hasty decisions or jumping too quickly to any conclusions. Use the opportunity of this time instead to take a moment for inner reflection and tune into your intuition. The best bet right now is to use your wisdom, patience, and self-control so that the situation does not escalate any further than it needs to.

06 May: Ceres goes direct in Virgo

As the goddess of agriculture, Ceres goes direct in Virgo and is ushering us into a period of self-care. Now is the time to start new routines and activities such as yoga or exercise; anything that will make you feel stronger, healthier, and more energized. This is also an opportune moment to nurture yourself from within—so don’t neglect your mind-body connection during this transitionary period.

19 May: New Moon in Taurus

The new moon is a perfect time to set new goals and manifest the life you want for yourself. From business plans to romantic relationships, reach for your highest ambitions and make them reality. Plant the seeds now, nurture them throughout the lunar cycle, and watch as your dreams come to fruition if you put in the hard work. Believe in yourself and trust that with faith and dedication, anything is possible during this powerful time.

21 May: Sun enters Gemini

With the sun in Gemini, we’re all granted the gift of communication. Use the next four weeks to take your time and weigh out all options before you make a decision. Be sure to ask plenty of questions and learn how to adapt quickly to new situations; use this knowledge as leverage for your future success. This is also a great time to establish connections and fill any gaps in your network, so don’t be afraid to introduce yourself and get talking.
