Hey star-gazers! This is your look-ahead forecast to May 16, 2023, when Jupiter moves out of Aries and into Taurus, where it will stay until May 25, 2024.

At the same time, let’s not default into thinking that Jupiter only brings beneficence. I’d be remiss if I didn’t caution all of us to temper our expectations. This isn’t because I purport glass-half-empty astrology, but because I think it’s important to remember that all of us are helped or hampered by the changing quality of our…
