Mercury retrograde ends on May 14, 2023, and each zodiac sign's luck will start to improve. Whenever Mercury retrograde takes place, we overthink things but, it does not pay to keep reviewing our problems or worrying if somehow life will catch up to you.

You owe it to yourself and your dreams to embrace the wild call to keep moving forward. Embrace the lessons, the joy, and the moments of luck on your path this month in celebration of Mercury's retrograde ending. 

As the dust settles from Mercury retrograde, the delay caused by the Eclipse Portal at the start of May is also behind us. Now that you are infused with that pleasure-orientated Taurus energy, you can find greater meaning in why everything needed to happen as it did. You can now see that while it might not have occurred as you wished it to, you can understand why it must. 



It is time, though, not to fear the past coming back but instead embrace the future you are creating — the one paved with confidence and hope that you are at this moment, not by chance, but by fate.

Jupiter enters your zodiac sign on May 16, 2023, bringing a much-needed boost to your life on many levels. By becoming more comfortable with change, you also attract greater success in your life. But this means there may be shifts ahead regarding your profession after Mercury retrograde ends.

You have attracted this into your life because you are signaling that you are ready for it, that you no longer will avoid the path leading to your best life but will enthusiastically take that first step. As Pluto begins its retrograde in Aquarius, it prepares you for some divine shakeups as you embrace what you love so that it can show you the love right back.

Mercury stations direct on May 14th bringing you powerful insights on this day. There are always multiple ways of thinking about a new venture or project in life.

This does not discount the belief behind multiple truths, but only that deep within your intuition, you always know what is meant for you; it is just a matter of trusting it.

Pluto retrogrades in Aquarius, helping you to release what prevents you from feeling like you are stepping into the light of luck. Remember that you are embarking on a massive upgrade in your life, and enjoy all of it. Not all of it can come with you.

Best day after Mercury ends: Friday, May 19th 

When you think of luck, it often involves being able to have things look a particular way, as this also is what defines safety to you. But many times, the plans that you have for your life cannot compare to those of the universe.

You can speak your truth more confidently, allowing yourself to take on some new risks and opportunities. Do not feel tied to success that only looks one particular way. Instead, recognize when you are getting a bump from the universe and do not hesitate to take it.

(September 23 - October 22) 

Best day after Mercury ends: Sunday, May 21st 

Life really is made up of shades of grey. As much as you can be a black-and-white thinker, there is more to life than what you can see. While part of this is simply believing others look at the world the same way you do, another part is your internal safety of needing to know the rules of life.

However, entertaining multiple options and seeing multiple truths also allows you to find what works best for you. As Gemini Season begins with the Sun’s return to this dynamic zodiac sign, let yourself entertain all options. Do not dismiss anything just yet because there is an opportunity here that can help open your mind and your life.

Best day after Mercury ends: Sunday, May 27th 

Venus starts to break away from the destructive energy of Pluto on May 27th, 2023. Love does make the world go round, but you also need to make sure you love what you do. Instead of making your life about others, it is time to focus on what living expansively and abundantly means for you.

Lean into the luck created when you leave your comfort zone and discover something new and unique you love — this changes your life. It need not always be awful or painful. In this process, you also develop a deeper love for yourself as you validate that you were never losing your mind but simply learning who you are.

(November 22 - December 21) 

Best day after Mercury ends: Saturday, May 20th 

There are always options, but not all will lead to the same destination. Just because something is brought to you does not make it a gift. Sometimes it is also a lesson or even a test from the universe. To choose correctly, in alignment with the self you hope to evolve into, you need to be more aware of your choices and what you invest within.

Mars shifts into Leo this month, opening up new possibilities within your life, but you must tune into your heart to make the necessary choices. This is the space free from doubt or even fears but shrouded in hope and the optimism that everything will always work out how it is meant to.

(December 22 - January 19) 

Best day after Mercury ends: Friday, May 19th 

Life is supposed to be balanced, but sometimes, you need to lose balance with one thing to achieve another. Instead of letting this knock you off kilter or make you feel like you have failed, take it as an act of balance itself. Balance is ever-evolving and changing based on what you need. As much as work or self-growth dominated your focus last month, this month is for a return to joy.

Make more space for what and who you love. Invite more time for play, experience life, and not feel guilty about it, even if it includes rest. Part of creating a successful life means allowing yourself to embrace what you feel most drawn to, even if it is simply enjoying what you have already created.

(January 20 - February 18) 

Best day after Mercury ends: Friday, May 27th 

Venus will harmonize with Uranus, your ruling planet, Pluto, and this helps you to see things clearly. Your career is an outward expression of yourself. It is more than just a job; it measures your growth and life progress. It is a chance to embrace more of who you have become rather than relish who you were.

This month, the Scorpio Full Moon Lunar Eclipse aims for this area of your life, helping you to release something that has come full circle and step into a new way of being or even seeing your career. Some of the most dramatic changes come from within, and when you honor and even celebrate that, you authentically embrace who you have become.

There is a time for everything, including your growth. It is a chance to relinquish those darker days for those filled with more light and to have your choices come from a more healed space within yourself. As the Scorpio Full Moon Lunar Eclipse occurs, new opportunities will spring up everywhere.

This is your chance to take the commitment you have been embodying toward your dreams and take it to the next level. These opportunities are coming to help you grow, not to overwhelm you. Look at everything in the light of abundance, and you will be able to finally choose the path, not just of luck but of purpose as well.
