Cancer Horoscope for May 2023

Your May Horoscope for Cancer

Yet the fifth house rules more than romantic love. (Your fifth house does not rule married love—that’s a separate house not involved here.) The fifth house rules pregnancy, birth, and the care for children. You may have an unexpected problem connected with conception, or conversely, you could get pregnant by accident, so if that possibility concerns you, be very careful this month. Your fifth house also rules your creative expressions, and the topic of this full moon relates to your artistic side, so you may find that a problem as you get close to finishing a project.

Eclipses have a non-negotiable quality to them—you can never get things back to where they were before, so save your dignity. Accept the situation, and move on. It’s as if a puzzle piece falls out of the sky, and once that critical piece falls into place, the picture changes, and your entire understanding of the event shifts.

Eclipses sometimes “eclipse out” a person or situation from your life. You are likely to see things in an entirely new light. At eclipse time, something from the outside world can trigger the event, something that wouldn’t seem to have anything to do with the situation, but an event is set off from that outside, remote place, lands on your doorstep, and turns everything upside down in your life. Eclipses show us how interrelated we are to others and to the universe—even to things happening across the other side of the world.

Yet remember that eclipses sweep away all that is of no further value to your future. A situation or relationship may be perfect and complete—it might have run its course. With nothing new to learn, it’s time to end it. On the other hand, if a situation or alliance has been toxic or hurtful, the eclipse will carry it out of your life in the blink of an eye, doing for you what you could not do for yourself.

Once Jupiter enter Taurus on May 16, you will be moving into a period of enormous reward, so think big in all phases of your life.
