Good news! We are now in the last stretch, just ending a pretty intense time in the astrology of 2023. While the surprises and unexpected events will continue to arrive at certain times, we can expect to feel more in flow, starting next week. 

If yours was one of the zodiac signs who experienced sudden endings at last week’s full moon lunar eclipse, this week, try finding the reason behind these events. On Tuesday, the sun will be aligning with Uranus, setting our minds toward the future. Whatever ended for you, can now begin opening new avenues of change and personal evolution. 

On May 7, lover Venus also changed signs, gracing a new part of our lives, for the next three weeks. The goddess of pleasure is now in the skies of Cancer, instigating fewer but deeper social as well as romantic connections. During the next three weeks, this sweet planet-sign combo will have us playing for keeps and spending more time “resting and nesting” in comfy environments that feel like home. 

Over the weekend, keep an eye on your emails, texts, and interactions as the second Mercury retrograde of 2023 comes to an end. The communication planet will be super-charged in the sky as it switches speeds, altering our thought process patterns. The mental fog we’ve been experiencing will slowly but surely begin to dissolve. On the positive side, Mercury can now create fated encounters with peeps who could play a key role in our lives.  

Check out your horoscope below for your rising as well as your sun sign—and for more cosmic intel, don't forget to read your May 2023 horoscope and your 2023 horoscope predictions too.
