Despite taking its name from Mars, the Roman god of war, it is one of the most peaceful and happy months in the calendar.
May is a special month for many reasons. Despite the fact that it got its name from Mars, the Roman god of war, it is one of the most peaceful and happy months in the calendar, partly because May and Women’s Day are two great occasions to rejoice, to holidays, to treat ourselves with flowers, chocolates and other proofs of love. But referring strictly to May 2023 from an astrological and astronomical point of view, here are the special events that influence us!
Important astrological events in May
May 9 – Super Full Moon in Virgo
The Full Moon of May 9 is a special astronomical event, considered a Super Moon because it takes place under special conditions: it is closer to the Earth in its elliptical orbit, overlapping with the position of the Moon at the perigee of its circum-Earth orbit and thus being more spectacular to the viewer, bigger and brighter than an ordinary Full Moon. Even if in our country it will probably not be visible from the bad weather, its effects will not be less strong. The organized, critical, and pragmatic nature of Virgo now impresses on us greater attention to detail and ease of finding practical solutions, of making plans perfected in the smallest details. It’s time to deepen our ideas and make them concrete, achieving notable progress in the coming period. Meticulous people are the most advantaged.
May 11 – we get rid of Mercury retrograde
From May 16 to May 10, Mercury was apparently retrograde in Pisces and Aquarius. From May 11, 2023, Mercury resumes its direct course in the sign of Aquarius. Aquarians are the first beneficiaries of this change, but all 12 signs will perceive its positive influences. We will slowly free ourselves from all the shackles, obstacles, and delays we have encountered lately, we will see everything more clearly and it will be easier for us to communicate, to make ourselves understood.
May 20 – Spring Equinox
The beginning of astronomical spring symbolizes the rebirth of nature, light and joy. It is the date when the day equals the night, the length of the day will continue to increase, and nature will come to life. It is an auspicious moment, celebrated since ancient times. The positive energies that we benefit from on this day must be received with an open heart and with gratitude towards our benevolent nature. In Romania, the equinox occurs at 5.50 am.
May 22 – Saturn enters Aquarius
This change of residence of the planet Saturn brings us long-term changes, because it lasts until the year 2023, with only one break. It is the starting point of a complicated but interesting period, in which we will have to overcome ourselves, differentiate ourselves from the crowd, without ignoring the needs of others, learn from mistakes, evolve, and mature.
May 24 – New Moon
The first New Moon of spring takes place in Aries and brings us a lot of energy and power of action. The courage of Aries banishes our fears and urges us to new beginnings free of constraints. Around this date, we will tend to listen to our instincts, act with conviction and live life to the fullest, not thinking about the future, but enjoying the present moment.
