Having a rough horoscope day is almost a given for three zodiac signs on this first day of May, not because it's May 1, but because we're at the top of a Pluto retrograde when Moon opposite Neptune comes to town.
It's like today is made to upset our plans, and we upset them by sabotaging ourselves to the best of our ability. With all that Neptune energy, we might end up overthinking ourselves into fits of confusion, and with Pluto going retrograde, it's like the perfect storm.
One of the reasons today feels so negative is that we associate the first day of May with freshness and light. While we can still honor those positive feelings, we may be tempted to fall into the dark simply because it will be so easy to do.
If we are of the zodiac signs that are prone to darkness, then we might want just to go ahead and chuck this day out the window because 'the darkness' is a-coming, and today is ground zero for darkness. This doesn't necessarily mean we'll all fall into the pit of despair; we're not.
It implies that we may be irritable and snap at others unintentionally. Today is a day for introspection, and we all know that dark thinking leads to self-doubt and self-pity.
Hang tight, zodiac signs, we'll make it through this messy, weird storm ... because we have to, right? Who's going down today? Three zodiac signs with rough horoscopes on May 1, 2023:
Gemini (May 21 - June 20) Today puts you in an odd position: you want to have a beautiful day because there's a good chance it's beautiful outside, and you feel as though you deserve something wonderful in your life.
You are also seriously feeling the tug of Pluto retrograde which makes you want to hide beneath a rock, licking your imaginary wounds. May 1 is full of angst for you, Gemini, mainly because you can't get it together.
You probably had big plans for today, and you were one hundred percent positive and flowers just yesterday. Then, the retrograde hit, and now you feel like you'd be best situated on a throne in hell, ruling over your domain.
Libra (September 23 - October 22) You'd probably stand to fare well during Pluto retrograde's first day, but it's the nagging Neptune transit that's gotten under your skin. Why today? Why did you have to fall a million steps backward today, of all days?
