Aquarius May 2018 Horoscope: Love, Money & Career


The focus is always on your home and family situation and matters at this time of year, due to the fact that the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of May in your home and family sector. Yet while this is always the case, this year the implications and developments are enormous. You have a taste of one half of the issue or situation from the get go, with the Moon still in your career sector after a Full Moon in the closing hours of April. You will always have a Full Moon in your career sector at some point during the Sun’s month long visit to your career sector and for a few days, this will create some professional pressure or work/life balance tension.

However, for the first time in 12 years, you have lucky Jupiter in your career sector, making work/life balance a reality throughout the Sun’s month long visit. The Sun and Jupiter are the two largest and most powerful forces in the solar spotlight and for the first three weeks of the month, they are keeping each other in check, with your home and professional lives evenly balanced. Mercury will move through your home and family sector from the 14th May to the 30th May, but with the Sun leaving on the 21st May, it looks like your professional life will win out.

Except that’s not your reality or at least it won’t be when Uranus returns to your home and family sector on the 16th May. This brings the most important eight years on the home, family and/or property fronts in our lifetime. Uranus is an even match for Jupiter, however, they will never move into opposition and while this will keep your home and professional lives balanced, it won’t create work/life balance tension. One planet happy that work/life balance is being policed is Venus, who is making this a special month for matters of the heart and all things fun, playful, romantic and creative.

Love 2017Aquarius May 2018 Love Horoscope

While the Sun will return to your romantic sector every May, he doesn’t return until the 21st May. At the same time, there is rarely any planetary activity in your relationship sector at this time of year, unless there is something extraordinary developing. Yet this year there is something extraordinary and you don’t need to wait for the Sun for things to take a romantic turn. That happened late last month with Venus, planet of love’s return to your romantic sector on the 25th April. With Venus here until the 20th May, the Sun from the 21st May and Mercury from the 30th May, you’ve reached the most romantically charged month of 2018.

While this is very ordinary, with all three returning at this time every year, for the first time in four years Saturn is no longer in opposition. With less resistance and no barriers, a little bit of influence from the love gods is going to go a lot further. It is while Venus, planet of love is still here that you have a chance to really embrace the romantic spirit. The Sun will return a day after Venus leaves on the 20th May, but even he is no substitute for what the planet of love can do.

In the meantime, the wheels continue to turn on the relationship front. With the North Node, the force behind a series of eclipses here since last May and Ceres, in direct motion here since March, neither are in a hurry but are keeping the wheels turning in a real and authentic way. Both will be challenged by Mars’ return to Aquarius on the 16th May, but this is more a case of putting you and your relationships to the test. The lunar nodes have been working to achieve a more authentic balance between your personal and relationship needs since May 2017, with Mars bringing your first real test.

Money 2017Aquarius May 2018 Money Horoscope

The Moon returns to your income sector from the 9th May to the 12th May, a visit that is destined to be both ordinary and extraordinary. Ordinary because the Moon returns every four weeks, with a chance to sharpen your nose for money, update your lucrative sense of direction and give you a chance to communicate with the planets that have been here for years now. There is a chance you will move into the new month with a sense that the dynamics have changed, but it’s not until the Moon moves through your income sector that you will have a chance to check in.

This is when an ordinary monthly visit becomes something extraordinary. For while the Moon will align with dreamy Neptune, as it has done every four weeks since 2012 that’s it. Chiron, here since 2010 left your income sector on the 17th April and Juno, here since February left on the 28th April. The Moon’s alignment with Neptune is the first with the planet of dreams and fantasies on his own since arriving eight years ago. Gone is a need to revisit the past, contend with roadblocks or with reality checks. Instead, with Neptune closing in on another alignment with lucky Jupiter in your career sector, this is likely to fire up your imagination.

Neptune returned in 2012 to help you define and then achieve your dreams and after eight years of defining your dreams, it’s time to start achieving them. Yet with Neptune here until 2026, Mars returning in November and support from Jupiter in your career sector until then, as your confidence and a sense of what’s possible rises, the urgency levels will plummet. The Moon’s visit from the 9th May to the 12th May is a chance to sharpen your nose for money and connect with dreamy Neptune in a way that you haven’t been able to do since he returned in 2012. Reality checks need to take a holiday during that time.

Career 2017Aquarius May 2018 Career Horoscope

Starting the month with the Moon in your career sector is always an advantage and especially with a Full Moon on the 30th April spilling into the early days of the month. Technically a Full Moon is an exact moment of time when the Sun and Moon are in exact opposition, but in reality, a Full Moon will be in effect until the Moon leaves your career sector, which it does on the 2nd May. So you not only start the month with your professional instincts and imagination fuelled from the get go but riding Full Moon waves. You will always have a Full Moon in your career sector at this time each year, but it has been 12 years since lucky Jupiter was last on board.

With Jupiter in retrograde motion, this is the push that anything stalled or stuck needs, at a time when the planet of luck is moving back towards a second alignment with Neptune in your income sector. That alignment will be exact from the 20th May to the 28th May and the timing couldn’t be better. For it is on the 20th May that Venus returns to your work sector, over a month ahead of the Sun. With the Moon in your work sector from the 18th May to the 20th May and coming full circle from the Full Moon in your career sector from the 27th May to the 29th May, there is a lot happening in the final two weeks of the month.

Venus will arrive wearing her professional hat but as the planet of money, she will always return with a mission to fuel your job confidence, attract opportunities and steer things in a lucrative direction. To return to find Jupiter and Neptune, the planets of luck and dreams creating stunning conditions across the income and career fronts will give Venus wings from the get go. This creates a stunning end to the month across the income, work and career fronts.
