Everything you need to know about May 2023

Updated: May 1

As we enter May, in the midst of the Eclipse Season and Mercury retrograde in Taurus, we have plenty to look forward to with the upcoming Universal Month Number 3 (2+0+2+3+5=1+2=3). Number 3 is a joyful, expressive, and creative energy archetype that loves to be social while sharing gifts and talents with the world. Combined with the gregarious, knowledgeable, and expressive Gemini zodiac (May 21 - June 21), we will end the month with energy that will lift our moods, cultivate creative ideas, and encourage us to spend time in social environments.

The remainder of the Eclipse Season and Mercury retrograde in Taurus will need extra attention to create impactful change. The lunar eclipse in Scorpio on May 5th and Mercury retrograde until May 14th (with a post-retrograde hangover until May 30th) may activate shadow aspects of the Number 3 energy, bringing out moodiness and challenging our balance. But remember, these energetic shifts are opportunities for growth and development. View any discomforts as a friend to find the hidden lessons and use these moments as a practice to change your perception, reflect inward, integrate discoveries, and move forward.

As we enter May, consider what the Eclipse Season has revealed, as it will open a pathway toward your destiny. Have you had any realizations or shifts on a personal level? These may play a crucial role in your life for the next six months. Take note of the latter portion of the month when the energy naturally becomes lighter, more engaging, and whimsical.

“Moments of discomfort provide opportunities for change. Perception is in the mind. Grab hold of uncomfortable moments and make it your friend.” - Tara Kabatoff

Here are some prompts for May:

- What shifts or realizations have come to light (mind, body, emotions)?

- Where can I find comfort in uncertainty?

- What adjustments can be made to set me up for future success?

- What am I being inspired to do?


On May 5th, the lunar eclipse in Scorpio will reach the depths of the psyche, helping to release unresolved wounds, attachments, fears, or negativity. It may even open a door to something completely new. Use this time to release fears or limitations, be open to the unexpected, and align yourself with the future of your calling. The number five in numerology signifies change and adaptability, so be prepared and open for what the Universe has in store for you!


On May 19th, the new moon in Taurus arrives, opening the door for manifestation practices with goal-setting and intentions for long-term success. From business to romance, plant your seeds and let them grow. 19 is a karmic debt number that may encourage you to open your heart to healthy relationships as 19 offers a lesson of learning to stand on your own and the proper use of power without cutting people out or subconsciously protecting your heart.


The sun shines on Gemini on May 21st as we transition from spring to summer in the northern hemisphere. Enjoy a time of uplifting energy in the air, a desire to socialize, and finding excitement in developing creative projects. Let the ideas flow, enjoy life, and be open to learning and adapting to new situations.
