May 2021 Full Moon in Sagittarius Horoscopes

The May 2021 full moon rises on May 26, 2021 at 4:14am PT in the party-hardy sign of Sagittarius. Full moons always pack a punch, but this drama-filled lunation is set to be extra bubbly, as it marks the first eclipse of the year. As is always the case with eclipses, we can usually expect sudden shifts, shockers, and shake-ups—so get ready for a wild lunar adventure.

The full moon in Sagittarius lights up our desire for knowledge, freedom, and growth. While the sun’s recent transition into Gemini has us focused on what’s right in front of us, this Sagittarius-ruled lunation inspires us to look far beyond the horizon line toward our highest aspirations. During the eclipse, the opposing sun and moon (alongside the Nodes of Fate) form a dynamic T-square with Jupiter (planet of abundance). Jovial Jupiter in Pisces would rather party through the drama than actually problem-solve, so we should beware of over-indulgence or taking anything to an extreme.

In addition to the lunar T-square, Mercury (planet of communication) and Venus (planet of love) align in Gemini to collectively square off with Neptune (planet of illusions). This clouds our judgment and leaves us feeling a little dizzy, especially when mixed with the buzzy eclipse energy. Planetary ingredients like these make this lunation one powerful cosmic cocktail, so forego making any big moves under its influence, else risk an eclipse hangover of epic proportions. Instead, sit back, embrace the power of moderation, and channel Sagittarius’ free-spirited energy as you allow the eclipse to work its magic.

This fiery lunation is hitting your ninth house of knowledge and adventure, so prepare for spiritual revelations, paradigm shifts, and lots of deep realizations about the meaning of life. Your quest for knowledge is reaching an epic pinnacle—but remember that there’s wisdom in being humble. Use this as an opportunity to learn new things instead of preaching them, Aries.


The beneath-the-surface power dynamics in your life are shifting now, Taurus, which means your personal boundaries may be put to the test. Are you ready to advocate for your own desires, even in the face of a challenge? Remember, you’re the only one with the power to change your life. Find control in the chaos and step into this new role.


This lunar eclipse in your house of partnerships will challenge you to find a balance between your personal desires and the commitments you’ve made to others, Gemini. All your one-on-one relationships are undergoing a deep transformation, and so are you—so a directional shift is virtually inevitable. Keep an open mind and heart as the layers of truth are revealed to you.


The full moon eclipse is hitting the wellness sector of your chart, bringing changes to your daily routine and interrupting the usual rhythm of your day-to-day. While these shake-ups could put fractures into your flow, these cracks will let in new light, which could illuminate all sorts of fresh possibilities. There is magic in the mundane, Cancer—and if anyone can find it, it’s you. 


Prepare for your passions to be set ablaze in more ways than one, Leo. This fiery eclipse will send lightning bolts of inspiration striking in your direction, bringing the opportunity for a sudden steamy romance or a rush of self-expressive prowess. Whether you want to throw yourself into love, art, or simple pleasure, now’s the time to follow your excitement.


Your foundations are shifting beneath your feet thanks to the eclipse hitting the sensitive and domestic fourth house of your chart. Sudden dramas, deep-rooted emotions, or even relationship blowouts could come out of left field now, making you feel unsteady and unsure of your next steps. But if anyone can find order in the chaos, Virgo, it’s you. Trust your instincts.


Are you getting your points across and making your ideas heard, Libra? It may be time for a change, as the full moon eclipse in your communication sector is asking you to connect with the world around you in a new way. Stay open to mind-expanding conversations with friends or perhaps the chance to make a new connection that will open doors of opportunity.


You’re finding meaning in the material realm now, Scorpio, which is an unusual departure from the more mystical and emotionally-charged world that you usually immerse yourself in. Your relationship to money, wealth, and physical pleasure is shifting now, so sit back and allow your values system to transform without self-judgment. Eclipses are full of surprises, after all.


The eclipse in your sign is rocking your sense of self and bringing out entirely new and unexpected pieces of your personality, Sagittarius—so get ready to party. Unleashing your sparkle on the world now is a must. But resist the urge to be self-righteous about your beliefs. Instead, allow yourself to freely flow through whatever personal revelations come to the surface.


This fiery full moon will set off flashy fireworks for some. But for you, Capricorn, it’ll feel more like a spiritual stirring within your soul. While you tend to listen more to logic than intuition, now’s a time to silence the daily chatter so you can clearly hear your inner voice. You’re gaining access to a powerful well of innate knowledge, so honor this mystical awakening.


Standing out from the crowd comes naturally to you, Aquarius, but the full moon eclipse in your house of community and friendship may ask you to connect with the collective a different way. It’s time to give your gifts to others, but only you can decide how best to share your vision in a way that touches people’s hearts. Step up and allow your uniqueness to shine and inspire.


The full moon is hitting your house of public image now, Pisces, so be ready to swim through some sudden storms when it comes to work. A change of heart regarding your career trajectory or a breakthrough on a professional project could set you sailing your ship in a new direction entirely. Things are in a state of flux, but that’s okay. That simply means anything is possible.
