What makes one day of the year the luckiest? Learn all about the Day of Miracles in astrology, the annual conjunction of the Sun and Jupiter. Plus, your horoscope for the Day of Miracles 2024.

Fortune favors the bold on May 18, 2024, when the magnanimous Sun teams up with boundless Jupiter for their once-per-year alignment, which is called a conjunction or a Jupiter cazimi.

As already-optimistic Jupiter dances into the Sun’s bright rays, it is showered with a dose of positive energy. This annual event is so brimming with good vibes that astrologers have nicknamed it “The Day of Miracles.”

Which is the luckiest day of the year 2024? 

Add it to your calendars, friends. The luckiest day of the year in astrology could very well be Saturday, May 18, 2024. 

What the Day of Miracles means in astrology

Once a year, the ambitious Sun and fortunate Jupiter meet up at the same point in the sky to form a conjunction. (The Day of Miracles date changes every year based on when the Sun and Jupiter meet.)

The Sun rules confidence and “can-do” energy. 

Jupiter is about luck, risk taking and adventure.

On May 18, 2024, the sky will fill with their combined energy and optimism as the generous Sun and limitless Jupiter make this once-a-year alignment and bring positive momentum to the world. When these superpower planets meld, it throws open the doors of opportunity. We feel optimistic, like we can take on the world.

And because both celestial bodies beam with such bright promise, our optimism alone can attract abundance. This one-a-year date offer us all that potential.

Nicknamed by astrologers as The Day of Miracles, this Sun-Jupiter meetup tints everything in your path with a rosy, can-do glow. While we believe that miracles are what you make of them, we’ll always welcome the extra cosmic help—and the life-giving Sun and generous Jupiter are always happy to supply that!

In what zodiac sign is the Day of Miracles?

On May 18, 2024, the Sun and Jupiter are conjunct at 28º18’ Taurus for the Day of Miracles. As they meet up in this rooted earth sign, they help us to grow without destabilizing ourselves in the process.

Both the Sun and generous Jupiter have a bounty to share—and not just with the usual crowd. Shine your light far beyond your usual sphere of influence. Think globally as worldly Jupiter instructs you to cast a wide net.

One important note about The Day of Miracles

This special day is like a winning lottery ticket, but remember that in order to get the prize, you have to cash it in. In other words, the universe isn’t going to do the work without your effort.

When a planet makes an exact connection, or conjunction, to the Sun, it gets a solar charge of bright, bountiful energy. The annual Sun-Jupiter conjunction “Day of Miracles” is a nod to Jupiter’s beneficent, abundant influence. 

Be prepared to answer the call to growth, expansion and new pathways to prosperity this May 18. Make it your business to be receptive and willing, available and accessible to receive the energy of The Day of Miracles. 

It certainly can’t hurt to schedule this day for bold action, especially near 2:45 PM EDT, the peak of the Sun-Jupiter merger. Auditions, presentations and proposals could all go exceedingly well, as long as you don’t overshoot your mark!

Try to do the following on the May 18 Day of Miracles:

• step out of your comfort zone

• open yourself to where you can invite a miracle (or 10!) into your life

The Oxford English Dictionary defines a miracle as: “a surprising and welcome event that is not explicable by natural or scientific laws and is therefore considered to be the work of a divine agency.” The spiritual self-study text A Course In Miracles makes it even simpler. It states that: “A miracle is simply a shift in perception from fear to love.”
