Nov 22 - Dec 21
Today's Horoscope This week This month
Sagittarius horoscope for May 2023
There are some big changes this month but with the Sun, Mars and Jupiter all moving from one area of your chart to another during the four day period from 17th May to 21st May, this will be the real dividing line. Until then, knowing that he will not only return to your work sector on 17th May but to begin your biggest year for job growth and expansion in over a decade, Jupiter will be working to make the most of his final weeks in a playful and creative part of your chart. While the dwarf planet Eris will stay on and that can safeguard against life becoming all work and no play, not to the same degree that Jupiter is doing.
At the same time, with the Sun always spending the first three weeks of May in your work sector the solar spotlight is always on work and job matters at this time of year, with Jupiter returning to build on from what has already begun. Jupiter's return four days before the Sun leaves will allow time for a handshake as Jupiter clocks in and the Sun prepares to clock out. This makes the timing of the Moon's visit to your work sector from 18th May to 20th May significant, for it is not only here to ensure you are emotionally and intuitively engaged as that handshake is taking place but will align with the Sun to create a New Moon just before leaving, creating an opportunity to draw a new line in the sand.
It is a day later that the Sun will return to your relationship sector, something that will always turn the solar spotlight onto your relationships at this time each year. However, with Venus here until 8th May and the asteroid Juno, the queen of commitment and especially a commitment to your relationships returning on 2nd May, it will be to find that there is already a lot of focus on your relationships. It is then that Venus will join Mars in your financial sector, allowing the planets of money and passion to join forces in a united mission to take your financial power back. Venus will stay on but on 21st May Mars will leave and return to an adventurous part of your chart, where for the first time in two years he can fuel a passion for adventure.
Love & RomanceThere is always just a one month gap between the Sun's departure from your romantic sector on 20th April and his return to your relationship sector on 21st May, with things often going quiet in between to create a firebreak. That is not the case this year, with romantic matters having become even more emboldened since the Sun left, while as you move into the new month Venus, the planet of love is already working her magic on the relationship front and she is about to get some special support. It was during the Sun's final hours in your romantic sector that an eclipsing New Moon gave matters of the heart a boost and it is Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion that has helped to keep the momentum going.
The Sun left just as Jupiter moved into the final four weeks of a visit to your romantic sector that began in May 2022 and until leaving on 17th May he is determined to expand a sense of what's possible. It is the Moon's return to your romantic sector from 15th May to 17th May that will ensure Jupiter's final days are some of the most romantically charged while ensuring your heart is emotionally engaged. The Moon will stay on for a few hours after Jupiter leaves and will align with the dwarf planet Eris, the warrior princess of the cosmos who will stay on to keep the romantic flame burning.
Meanwhile, while Venus will leave your relationship sector on 8th May and the Sun won't return until 21st May, it won't remain empty thanks to the return of the asteroid Juno on 2nd May. Juno might be a minor player but as the queen of commitment and especially commitment to your relationships, her return in time to capture Venus' desires and expectations and the fact that she will still be here when the Sun turns the solar spotlight onto your relationships will do more than just keep the momentum going. Like Venus, Juno's return will see her move straight into a friendly aspect to Pluto, just a few hours after he turns retrograde in your communication sector on 2nd May.
Business & CareerBecause the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of May in your work sector, the solar spotlight is always on your work situation and job matters at this time of year. However, apart from having Mercury in retrograde motion here until 15th May, it is business as usual and what you would normally expect moving into the middle months of the year, but that is about to change in a major and irrevocable way. This makes this a month of two halves, where there are the ordinary observations, reviews and exploring of options that takes place at this time each year. Venus has already moved through and has already given your heart a voice and Mercury who returned early last month should have been and gone as well.
Instead, a retrograde turn has kept Mercury here, making it easier to keep your head in the game and also spend time back at the drawing board. However, this is not game changing and is not uncommon at this time of year. However, it is two days after Mercury turns direct that that everything changes, with Jupiter's return to your work sector on 17th May kicking off your biggest year for job growth and expansion in over a decade. While the Sun will spend a month here each year, Jupiter will spend one out of every 12 years here and this can change the dynamics of the year itself. Yet while Jupiter returns every 12 years it has been eight decades since he has been here at the same time as Uranus, the planet of surprise, synchronicity and the unexpected.
Uranus has been here since 2018 but has largely remained in the background, though has been slowly steering things in the right direction. You not only have the planet of luck and expansion returning but to team up with the planet of surprise, synchronicity and the unexpected. The Moon will return from 18th May to 20th May, returning a day after Jupiter returns and leaving a day before the Sun leaves, though not before aligning to create a New Moon. In the space of those few days everything will change. Meanwhile, in her last full month in your career sector the dwarf planet Ceres continues her deep dive into your professional needs and priorities.
MoneyWhile there is once again change in the air the major changes won't take place until next month, but it is putting a lot more importance of money matters this month. It was at the end of March that within the space of 24 hours two events happened that completely flipped this financial year on its heels. It began with Pluto's departure from your income sector, something that left it empty for the first time since his return in 2008 and concluded a day later with Mars' return to your financial sector. By the skin of his teeth Mars returned to fire up your financial passions and fighting spirit to find no planets on the other side of the financial fence, something that hasn't happened in 15 years.
For Mars and money matters this was a major advantage, with Pluto putting income matters on hold and letting the money gods shift all their focus onto the other side of the financial fence. That was never going to be permanent and on 2nd May Pluto will turn retrograde, something that will see the planet of change and revolution turnaround and start heading back towards your income sector. Your sixth sense is likely to get wind of this when the Moon moves through your income sector from 9th May to 11th May. Once back Pluto will remain here for the rest of the year but by the time he returns next month Mars will be gone and so too will Venus, who joins him in your financial sector on 8th May.
Knowing that Pluto is on his way back to shift the balance of power back to the income side of the financial fence will make the planets of money and passion even more determined to gain as much traction on the financial front as possible. Mars will leave on 21st May but Venus will stay on, while Venus' return on 8th May will give you a better sense of where to channel Mars' financial passions and fighting spirit. The Moon's return to your financial sector from 22nd May to 25th May will be a chance to regroup after Mars leaves.
