May 2023 Horoscope. Cancers Find Out What They Really Want From Life

The month of May begins under the influence of Mercury retrograde, and Pluto will also enter retrograde motion from the first day of the month.

This astral aspect will bring you moments of revelation and bring secrets to the surface. The Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio, on May 5th, inspires us to distance ourselves from an emotional problem and to simplify things in this complex period.

On May 7, Venus leaves Gemini and enters Cancer. It will inspire us to show our affection through elaborate meals and gifts offered from the heart. Nostalgia is the weakness of Venus in Cancer, so you should avoid the temptation to stay stuck in the past. It will be all the more difficult during the entire period when Mercury is retrograde.

The most important change of the month will take place on May 16, when Jupiter enters the Taurus sign, where it will remain until May next year. Jupiter in Taurus brings us the stability we needed and which we lacked in recent years, since 2019.

Mars, the planet of action, leaves Cancer on May 20 and enters Leo. It will bring us a period of energy and involvement, after almost six months of confusion and delays.
