Your Memorial Day Weekend Horoscope: Discover What’s in Store for Your Zodiac Sign

Learn what your zodiac sign can anticipate over the holiday weekend 


Curious about what Memorial Day weekend 2024 will bring for your zodiac sign? Checking your horoscope is the perfect place to start.

Annually, you can count on Memorial Day falling during Gemini season, or the time of year when the vitality-bringing sun is moving through the mutable air sign Gemini. But because all of the planets and the luminaries (the sun and the moon) move at different paces through the zodiac, interacting with your natal, or birth, chart in different ways, every Memorial Day weekend brings its own unique opportunities and challenges. What better way to know what to do Memorial Day weekend than to check in on your horoscope and decide based on what the stars have in store for you?!

In 2024, Memorial Day falls on Monday, May 27, and in the lead-up to the unofficial launch of summer, Jupiter will enter Gemini on Saturday, May 25, marking a big, bold power move for the planet of luck and abundance. But that’s far from the only astrological highlight to keep in mind as you plan ahead. Here’s what you need to know to in order to decide what to do Memorial Day weekend and make the most of the time off this year.

Your Memorial Day weekend horoscope and zodiac sign forecast

You can continue to take advantage of the full moon in Sagittarius

On Friday, May 24, the day when excitement around a long holiday weekend is sure to start brewing, a sense of joyfulness and buoyancy will be in the air, as well as the desire to go big or go home. This is owed to the moon continuing to move through the sign of the Archer following Thursday, May 23’s full moon in Sagittarius, inspiring you to share and embrace fiery, zealous emotions and take bold action. (Pro tip: You can make the most of full moons for four days before and after they occur.)

Venus trine Pluto heightens your desire to connect  

On Saturday, May 25, relationship-oriented Venus, the planet of romance and pleasure, currently moving through Gemini, will connect with powerful Pluto in fellow air sign Aquarius, which can boost the intensity of your bonding with loved ones. 

Jupiter enters Gemini for a year

Also on Saturday, at 7:15 p.m. ET/4:15 p.m. PT, Jupiter will leave the sensual, down-to-earth terrain of fixed earth sign Taurus for zippy, curious Gemini, where it remains until June 9, 2025. As the largest planet in the solar system, Jupiter has a magnifying effect on everything it comes in contact with, and as it begins its trip through Gemini, we’ll all be more inclined to tap into the vibe of the bubbly, communicative and go-go-go air sign. 

Group activities are favored thanks to the moon’s trine to Jupiter 

This will be especially the case on Monday itself, thanks to the moon in fellow air sign Aquarius forming a harmonious angle to Jupiter, amplifying optimism and warm, happy energy — particularly while spending time with others in a group. 

You can feel more centered when messenger Mercury sextiles Saturn 

And the holiday weekend closes on a pragmatic note, as Mercury, the planet of communication, in grounded Taurus, forms a positive sextile to taskmaster Saturn in spiritual Pisces. You can tap into both your senses and your intuition to get organized before diving into the week ahead.

Here, how to make the most of the astrology of Memorial Day weekend based on your sign. Be sure to read both your sun and your rising sign if you know it. If you don’t, you can find it in your birth chart or by using this CafeAstrology calculator.
