These two zodiac signs are least affected by the May full moon

Full moons are often the most powerful phases of the lunar cycle, and this month's Great Full Moon is no exception. May's full moon, which peaks on May 23, inspires everyone's taste for adventure and thirst for truth. It also coincides with some of the most important astrological alignments of the year, which only amplifies the energy of this important cosmic moment. For some signs, this full moon and nearby planetary activity may end up being one of the most impactful cosmic moments of the season. But for others, its effects may appear more subtle.

Also known as the annual Flower Moon, May's Full Moon occurs in free-spirited Sagittarius—and when it reaches its peak, it will oppose the Sun in quick-thinking Gemini. The Gemini-Sagittarius axis of the zodiac is a mutable form in astrology, and the tension between the luminaries of these two signs can inspire all zodiac signs to find their inner compass, aligning it to true north, Then set off on a new journey of something exciting. This is a time to embrace growth and be willing to push the limits of your comfort zone, so challenge your belief system and allow yourself to see your current trajectory in a new light. What adjustments might you make after evaluating your plan from a different perspective?

In addition to the full moon, a special annual conjunction between romantic Venus and lucky Jupiter occurs in the sensual realm of fixed earth sign Taurus. This aspect can open new doors of opportunity for all signs when it comes to love, relationships, and happiness. Take advantage of this abundant moment of manifestation and trust that the universe is creating something magical for you.

There will be a lot of planetary activity down in the realms of mutable and fixed signs during this New Moon, but the cosmic path is looking a little clearer for the cardinal signs of the zodiac - especially Libra and Capricorn. But if you're one of the signs least affected by the May full moon, don't worry, because you'll still have plenty of astral magic to work with come May 23rd.

Libra (September 23-October 22)

May's Full Moon rises in your communication sector, which is an excellent time to connect with those who may be able to act as mentors or simply provide a broader perspective on something you've been thinking about. It's also a conducive atmosphere that allows you to ultimately stay away from people in your daily life who may be negative and pessimistic about your higher aspirations - because no one needs any unnecessary hateful energy in their life. Either way, you're unlikely to experience any major changes or shocks from this new moon, so just keeping an open mind and speaking your truth will do you good.

Romantic Venus forms a gorgeous alignment with abundant Jupiter at the same time as the Full Moon, which certainly marks an auspicious time for embodiment and good fortune—especially for a sign like yours, which is ruled by Venus. But since this conjunction will activate your deep and intimate eighth house, you may feel these effects more internally, so it can be helpful to turn your attention inward and listen carefully to your intuition.

Capricorn (December 22-January 19)

While full moons are typically busy and energetic times, May's big new moon may actually have the opposite effect on you. That's because it peaks in your sleepy and restorative twelfth house, prompting you to engage in personal introspection and spiritual growth.

Although Sagittarius energy is outgoing and carefree, you may be more inclined to spend some extra time alone with your thoughts during this full moon. Now is a good time to tune into any spiritual downloads or intuitive hits you may have received, and journaling about your dreams may also reveal some helpful and self-reflective insights.

This full moon is powerful, but will feel more subtle to you. However, you may find a burst of inspiration pulls you out of the moon's haze, as a breakthrough around a passion project or the prospect of sweet romance may materialize out of thin air. Keep an open mind and be well rested so you can seize any special opportunities that come your way.
