The Lunar Month Ahead
You’re now armed with fresh inspiration and an idea of what the next 6 months will hold (thanks to last month’s eclipse season and mercury retrograde) and something’s stirring, even if it still feels a little vague or is just a glimmer.
Jupiter’s presence in Taurus is reminding you of the need to enjoy your creations and you’ll likely feel pushed to add some sparkle in at least one area of your life.
In fact, Jupiter will be making his presence felt strongly this lunar month, as he not only hangs out with the North Node in both the New and Full Moon charts, but also forms part of a powerful T Square with Pluto and Mars.
This brings angsty, intense and what could feel uncomfortable energy and it’s pushing for acknowledgement. Especially strong if you have planets at 29-0 degrees in your chart.
Taurus energy is sensual, physical and solid, making mid-May to mid-June about aiming for tangible results and forging ahead with practical solutions that bring growth and stability, but it also has a primal side and that T Square could unearth some deep feelings.
The recent eclipse was potent and transforming. Whatever was set in motion will take around 6 months to start baring fruit and it’s what you do from this point on that decides the quality of that fruit.

The emphasis on Earth energy in the in the New Moon chart fits this symbol well. Can you capitalise on the abundance of growth energy and do what’s needed in pursuit of your goal(s)?
Note the symbol holds a calm feeling, much like the patience Taurus can embody; it can take commitment and steady progress to bring something into form.
A working partnership could bring benefits this month and you may have an increased need for learning (perhaps new skills) as the Sun enters Gemini on the 21st.
Gemini energy also likes to talk, have lighthearted fun and socialise and you may be drawn to enjoy board or card games when you need some time out.
With Venus in Cancer as ruler of the New Moon chart, you’ll want to feel connected and close to your loved ones and this could result in a renovation project at home, putting all that T Square energy into transforming your sanctuary.
Of course, such potency can also bring drama, so do your best to write out your feelings, count to ten and stay away from anything that feels shady.
Mars moves into Leo during the early hours of March 21st perfecting his connection with Jupiter and Pluto.
Negatively: This could be bring anger to the surface along with a few shadows, so dig deep and choose healing over blame and self-destruction.
Positively: Your creativity and confidence could be on fire now.
Venus moves to Leo later in the Lunar Month – on 5th June – just after the Full Moon exacts, upping inspiration, romance and a desire for increased self-expression.
Enjoy ‘being in love with love’ as we round out this lunar month (week beginning 5th June), as once we reach our next lunar month (Cancer Season), Venus will enter the shadow zone for her upcoming retrograde and the energy will feel a little different.
Another planetary shift occurs on June 11th when Pluto moves back into Capricorn for his final hurrah with the goats, moving between 27 and 30 degrees from June 11th 2023 to January 20th 2024, before heading back into Aquarius for the next 20 years.
Pluto will be in exact trine to Mercury as he transitions steadying the mind with focus and discipline.
The New Moon in Taurus begins the Lunar Month, the Full Moon in Sagittarius marks the culmination point and the New Moon in Gemini on the 18th brings it to a close.
The Full Moon chart is Jupiter-ruled and Jupiter remains with the North Node, adding positivity, optimism and the urge to grow, whilst the Mercury/Uranus conjunction is insighful and stimulating.
The Sabian Symbol for the Full Moon is
“The Vast Panorama of Sand And Time Is Unfolding; The Pyramids And Sphinx In Their Glory Rise Before The Eye”Sagittarius 14
There’s a need to keep the bigger picture in mind and open to the magic of life and divine timing.
You could gain some understanding around this Full Moon of something that’s been concerning or bothering you and which has until now, remained elusive
It may not be the full manifestation, but something is definitely in the works!
The need for expansion, adventure and to broaden your sphere in some way will be relevant this lunar, as will the desire for fun and achievement.
