May Love Tips Spring Couple

May begins with a retrograde in Taurus, Venus in Gemini, and Mars in Cancer. Relationships will change whether we like them or not. The month of May can either revive or release you of your current relationship views, whether you are involved or single. Do not fret because with change comes opportunities for improvement and obtaining our heart's desire. Keep in mind that we do not often discard or change what is working, which means if a relationship ends or we alter behavior patterns, it typically means modifications are needed. We may not always see change as ideal, but if we take an honest inventory, we will see the benefits.

May 2023 Monthly Astrological Forecast

Sun in Aries (April 21 – May 20) typically gives us a sense of direction and commitment needed to stabilize vital areas of our lives, especially relationships. If you have felt disconnected or unsure of your relationship status, this cycle will help you stabilize your connection. If you are dating casually, this is a significant period to move to the next level, or if you are single, it's an ideal time to meet new people.

While Sun in Taurus impacts stability, Sun in Gemini (May 21-June 20) influences how we adjust and make improvements. During Sun in Gemini, the outdated modes and patterns will be dismantled and revised. Change may feel uncomfortable, but it is necessary for personal growth and expansion. Changes in your relationships will make room for expansion by removing barriers and outdated patterns that stifle your ability to enjoy each other fully.

We shall review the aspects of their general influence before diving into the specific Sun signs. Always remember that regardless of the challenges, there are ways to navigate and improve situations which is why I have also included the best dates for taking specific actions.

Love Aspects as Influenced by the Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, and Sun Signs Transits

Flower Full Moon in Scorpio - May 5, 2023

We have a Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio that will intensify our emotional states to the point of being a bit unsettling if we attempt to ignore it. The vibrant burst from the Lunar eclipse will create uneasiness that may offset our balance and ability to calm and be collected, which can add to intense miscommunication. It is wise to use this time to reflect and write down your feelings to help you review them later.

Moon ritual: White candle and a clear quartz crystal. Focus your meditation on your heart area as you think about your current emotional state. Regardless of your feelings, allow yourself to explore your emotional state and observe without judgment.

Mercury in Taurus – April 21, 2023 – June 11, 2023

Here’s an outline of the Mercury stages in Taurus:

  • Retrograde Mercury in Taurus - April 21 until May 14, 2023 May begins with Mercury retrograde in Taurus, which means potential problems. Mercury retrograde tends to slow our ability to express our feelings and needs to others, as well as travel, communication, motivation, and ability to act. Regarding relationships, Mercury retrograde creates conflicts since it makes us overthink and delay our ability to express ourselves with clarity. Retrograde Mercury in Taurus becomes extra cautious and reluctant to let go, making individuals appear combative and uncooperative.
  • Direct Mercury in Taurus - May 16 until June, 11, 2023 Once Mercury goes direct on May 16, it will take a few days to normalize communication and reduce any tension created by the retrograde transit. Mercury in Taurus is typically resistant to letting things go; however, things will be easier and less erratic, helping reduce tension. A critical factor of Mercury in Taurus is that communication is based on mindfulness rather than abruptness, which means words are measured carefully before being expressed.

Venus in Gemini - April 12, 2023 – May 7, 2023

May begins with Venus in Gemini, giving us a sense of self and freedom in our relationships. We love without attachments, yet we love freely without the fear of not being enough. The placement of Venus in Gemini can fluctuate and frequently change its emotional focus from wanting commitment to wanting space to do as one desires. It can be a fun placement for those who seek romantic adventure, but it can be daunting for those who need traditional roles. Go with the flow and do not fret; love is love, even if undefined by official titles.

Venus in Cancer - May 8, 2023 – June 5, 2023

Venus enters Cancer in May and lasts until the beginning of June. The position of Venus in Cancer provides us with a sense of tenderness and emotional nurturing our soul needs. Venus becomes nurturing and reassuring, while Cancer gives our relationships the warm and cozy feelings many crave. It can be overwhelming for those who prefer freedom and independence, yet it will enable feelings of belonging. We are more emotionally expressive and open to sharing how we feel.

Mars in Cancer - March 25, 2023 - May 20, 2023

We have been under the influence of Mars in Cancer since April 25, 2023. Mars in Cancer is more sensitive than combative and more protective than controlling by nature. During the cycle of Mars in Cancer, we focus more on people close to us and home life. Staying home and being cozy is ideal and preferred during this period, so don’t be surprised if you are inclined to stay home more.

Mars in Leo - May 21, 2023 - July 10, 2023

We have been under the influence of Mars in Cancer since April 25, 2023. Mars in Cancer is more sensitive than combative and more protective than controlling by nature. During the cycle of Mars in Cancer, we focus more on people close to us and home life. Staying home and being cozy is ideal and preferred during this period, so don’t be surprised if you are inclined to stay home more.
