3 Zodiacs Who Should Protect Their Energy on 5/23

The Full Moon is here, and it’s preparing to close some chapters for the zodiac signs!

On Thursday, May 23rd, the Full Moon in Sagittarius will occur. Full moons are usually associated with endings and closing chapters to make room for the new. Saying goodbye or making changes isn’t always easy, but it can foster significant growth, and with this moon as a sign of Sagittarius, these themes will play a more significant role. Sagittarius loves to expand and explore and thrives when unrestrained and growing. Sagittarius knows that change is necessary to help us become who we are. 

While some changes may be more public or evident, others happen beneath the surface. Changes can require us to dive deep into our pasts and fears, leaving us feeling vulnerable. During these times, it’s important to protect our energy from those who would take advantage of it, and three zodiac signs, in particular, should watch for this during these next few weeks. 

Check your signs below (Rising and Sun!) to see which zodiac signs should protect their energy during the full moon in Sagittarius. 


You’re likely going to feel more reserved than usual, Capricorn. The full moon transits your 12th House of Isolation and Subconscious, and if you’ve been running yourself ragged, this period is ideal for you to rest and recover. You may desire to dive deeper into issues you’ve been repressing, and unpacking those things could be deeply beneficial to you,” but you’ll want to keep these things private rather than letting the whole world know your baggage and deep-seated fears. Things may also come to light for you, so pay attention to your intuition during these next few weeks. However, you may also notice people trying to get more from you mentally and emotionally, so setting boundaries and showing up for yourself is more than necessary. You do not owe everyone your energy and attention all of the time. 


You could be dealing with some give and take, but you’ll want to tread lightly, Taurus. The full moon transits your 8th House of Intimacy and Shared Resources, making this period one where you may either need to settle debts or be relied on for support. Tough decisions may arise, notably with finances, but you’ll want to be wary of people wanting to take more from you than they are willing to give. You also need to check yourself for the same behavior:” You want to protect and care for yourself, yet you also need to accept that sharing what you have is beneficial rather than keeping it to yourself. Be sure you’re caring for others and yourself, but you don’t have to allow yourself to be taken advantage of in this process. 


It’s best to keep your eyes on the home front during this period, Virgo. The full moon transits your 4th House of Home and Roots, making themes of home, family history, and privacy a significant factor. If you’ve struggled to balance your public and personal lives, it’s an excellent time to take a step back and focus on the personal.” Not everything is the rest of the world’s business, after all. Home and family issues may require your complete attention and could be worth working through, but they can also be draining, so be sure to navigate things with a focus on caring for yourself, too. If you aren’t careful, you could overextend yourself, so slow down and take your time sifting through new information or navigating new circumstances.
