MAY 1-7, 2023
All dates and times are given in EDT.
Monday, May 1. You can count on today’s Sun-Mercury Rx conjunction to promote communications and foster creativity. Since it’s in Taurus, it will also help you remain calm, cool and collected if you happen to experience an unexpected event when Pluto stations retrograde and triggers the April 20 eclipse point. The only caveat is that with Mercury retrograde, it’s important to listen carefully before committing to a project and/or fully understand the situation before taking action. When the transiting Virgo Moon goes void at 7:53 PM, it’s time to kick back and relax.
Tuesday, May 2. This is one of the best days of the week. If you were thrown off course yesterday, today’s transiting Moon in Libra (since 2:09 AM) can help you restore balance in your life. It can also inspire you to make social plans, pursue a romantic interest or treat yourself to something special.
Wednesday, May 3. Although you can expect yesterday’s congenial mood to carry over into today, be aware that emotions could run a bit high from 4:00 – 6:00 PM when the transiting Moon has a brush with Mars. If you can sidestep this energy, this day should be a good day.
Thursday, May 4. Yesterday’s lighthearted energy takes an intense turn as the transiting Moon enters Scorpio (9:33 AM) and begins to move towards the lunar eclipse point. In addition, Venus’s square to Neptune indicates there could be some type of deception connected to love or money, perhaps due to the influence of Mercury retrograde. If so, the good news is that Venus’s sextile to Jupiter suggests that the matter can be easily resolved.
Friday, May 5. Lunar eclipse in Scorpio. See below.
Saturday, May 6. The overall energy of the day is good but with a Void Moon in Scorpio from 10:38 AM – 4:04 PM, most of it will be best spent on activities that don’t require a definite result. You can expect an energetic change for the better once the Moon enters the friendly, easygoing and optimistic sign of Sagittarius.
Sunday, May 7. Although the transiting Sagittarius Moon could ignite a sense of adventure (or at least a desire to get out of the house), Venus’s ingress into Cancer at 10:25 AM could inspire you to be a homebody. Either way, the week should end on a positive note.
