May 2024 Is Set To Be The Best Month Of The Year, According To The Zodiac

Must read

May is finally here, and with it comes the promise of longer evenings and sun-dappled days. After what felt like for many an endless winter, summer is (hopefully) just around the corner, and this sunniness is reflected in this months’ horoscopes too. Cosmic beings, if you thought the first four months of this year had been abundant, just wait until May gets into her swing.

There are a few things happening this month that will dictate the easy breeziness of May. The first is that Jupiter and Venus will be in conjunction, which is something that only happens once a year but promises to bring with it an abundance of blessings, including opportunities for travel.


The second is that Pluto, which is often referred to as the Planet of Transformation, begins its five-month retrograde on May 2. Mercury’s retrograde ended on April 25, which marked the beginning of Pluto’s journey, and it promises an evolutionary journey. In short, if you’re wanting to do something: do it. If you’re wanting to go somewhere: go. The purpose of retrogrades is to encourage growth and change, so instead of fearing them, lean into them and enable yourself to embrace the difference they might nurture. Retrogrades aside, this month is going to be big for several signs in the zodiac; this is everything you need to be aware of.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Aries, we have good news for you – May is going to be the best month you’ve had all year. The fact that Mercury is no longer in retrograde for you will enable you to be more of a free agent than you’ve been so far this year.

This month will mark the most energetic you’ve been all year, and given that Mars is this month’s ruler, expect both physical and emotional transformation, although you may need to set boundaries towards the end of the month, which is when Jupiter will enter Gemini. Be clear about what you can realistically take on.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

This month will finally end what has been a testing period for even the most patient among you, dear Tauruses. The difficult situation that you’ve been struggling to extrapolate yourself from or understand in a deeper way will finally shift this month (all thanks should be directed to Jupiter exiting your sign after a 13-month stay). A little word to the wise: when the Taurus new moon begins on May 7, focus on building a plan for sustainable abundance for the remainder of 2024.

Venus, the Planet of Love and Harmony, will set up shop in your sign for the entire month of May, so whatever you do and wherever you go, don’t be surprised if people are doing double takes to get closer looks at you.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Gemini, this month is your moment. As soon as Jupiter enters Gemini on May 25, things will start to shift. Obviously, the tail end of May is your birthday period so you ought to be celebrated and embraced anyway, but Jupiter entering Gemini is genuinely a big deal in the zodiac, so get ready for a new level of confidence and self-assurance you haven’t reached before to imbibe your senses.

Jupiter is the Planet of Abundance for good reason: it will help you in areas that you’ve been experiencing difficulties in. Just ensure to look out for any difficult characters; with your ascension may come jealousy from others.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

When the new moon enters Taurus on May 7, prepare for your social life to soar. You will be the busiest social butterfly you’ve been in recent years this month, Cancer, but more than that, you will also magnetise more engaging and reliable social networks.

Taurus new moons are known for their power to help you achieve your deepest hopes and fears so be intentional this month and be clear about what you want, and it may well appear before your eyes…

The Sagittarius full moon on May 24 is also the perfect time to let go of that which no longer serves you. Shed the people, habits and mindsets that are holding you back so that abundance can fill your cup.

Leo (July 23-August 22)

Pluto’s retrograde promises re-birth for everybody in different areas of our lives, but the month of May will highlight relationship difficulties in particular, making this the perfect month for re-evaluating your connections.

Mars gets reborn in your ninth house this month and will take you on a prosperous journey of healing, which will ultimately lead you closer to arriving at your life’s purpose. Stay tuned in and remember that this is your month to expand your network and further build on any other connections you might have.

Virgo (August 23-September 22)

Hurrah! Your planetary ruler Mercury is finally no longer retrograde this month, which will help you to feel more confident and optimistic when it comes to making money moves you’ve been long contemplating. The good news is that there’s a lot of positivity coming from your ninth house, which is usually associated with karma, so finally! All of those kind deeds will pay dividends to you this month, so allow yourself to be moved by them. You are stronger than you may sometimes feel.

Libra (September 23-October 22)

The month of May will represent a shift in the financial area of your life, Libra. In fact, the shift isn’t just pertaining to the financial area of your life, but also your ability to manifest money and to cultivate a positive mindset.

Creating will also dominate the month of May for you; that might be in terms of creating a new idea for something, a DIY project in your house or bringing an actual IRL baby into the world, all of the forces are working in conjunction this month to help bring your dreams, goals and aspirations to life.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)

Relationships will come into fruition this month, both romantically and platonically. Not only will there be an expansion in your networks (meaning more people may well enter the fold for you), but these may well be connections that provide more clarity and purpose to your life. You’re ruled by Mars, and given that it gets reborn this month in your sixth house, expect things to really shift for you. Shed routines that no longer serve you and enable yourself to welcome in all of the new energy that your new connections promise to bring for you.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)

The month of May is all about healing this month for you, Sagittarius. Be prepared to take seriously good care of yourself so that you can be the best version of you for everybody you hold dear. With Mars being reborn in your fifth house, which is the house of love, May also promises to bring with it love, romance and children. Your relationships will be blessed for the next year because Jupiter also enters your seventh house towards the end of the month. Get ready for a serious abundance of blessings; you deserve it.

Capricorn (December 22-January 19)

Love is in abundance this month, dear Capricorns, so grab your lipstick and pucker up. April was a difficult healing month for you, but the marriage of Jupiter and Venus this month will spark the joy that you’d forgotten you could feel. Mars being in your fourth house this month could also encourage you to put your energy into your domesticity, but with that comes the downside of also arguing with people in your home more.

The full moon in Sagittarius will also put a stop to any moving parts that have been shifting beyond your control. Expect to feel more grounded and rooted in your purpose this month.

Aquarius (January 20-February 18)

Mars is being reborn in your third house this month (that’s the house of the mind), which means that this is the perfect time to leave behind any negative mental health patterns or internal monologues you’ve adopted. That’s not to say that this will be the easiest month, because it might not be the most straightforward. Pluto begins its retrograde in your sign on May 2 and will remain in Aquarius until September 1, so use the new moon entering Taurus to visualise anything you’d like to really manifest, but try to remember that when you’re uncomfortable, it’s because you’re growing. And nobody gets to where they’re trying to get to without growth.

Pisces (February 19-March 20)

Get ready for one seriously hectic month, Pisces. In terms of finances, the month of May is going to be when you can finally begin to reap the seeds that you sow.

Jupiter and Venus meet up in your third house this month, which will mean that you find communicating easier than ever before. If you’ve felt like you’ve had words stuck in your mouth that you’ve been trying to say to a colleague, partner or friend, now’s your chance to utter them. Now is really the perfect time to bid goodbye to the life you’re leading that you might be far from happy with and instead visualise your dream existence. May 7 is the perfect time to set your intentions regarding a long-term shift that will bring about the change you’re so desperate to see.
