At some point May will always become a battle to find a balance between work and play. That’s because while the Sun will always leave a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart and return to your work sector on the 21st May, the lines are always blurred. The Sun travels as a pack, with the Sun, Mercury, Venus and often Mars moving through at the same time. So while for the Sun there is a clear line in the sand when it comes to a time to play and a time to work, the rest of the planets blur the lines.
Those lines became blurred during the Sun’s very first full day. The Sun returned to a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart on the 20th April and Mars left on the 21st April, returning to your work sector. Not due to leave until early next month, Mars will not only spend the whole of June in your work sector, but will be working with Jupiter in your career sector to fire things up across the job and career fronts. The lines between work and play are not blurred this month, they’re not even there.
Even while the Sun will join Mars in your work sector on the 21st May, Mercury’s return to a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart on the 16th May will ensure that flame doesn’t go out. With Venus returning early next month, she will be holding Mercury to account. This makes it essential from the get go to commit to finding a balance between work and play. This is not just a stunning month for job and career matters, but has the potential to be a lucrative month as well. You don’t want or need to avoid embracing it. But you don’t want or need to ignore this month’s playful, romantic and creative influences. You really can have it all. Maybe this is what all those work/life balance reminders have been about.
Capricorn May 2017 Love Horoscope
While May will have the romantic influence that it will always have, it doesn’t have the romantic influence you are really hanging out for. You will have to wait for next month for that, but I suspect that the love gods will go out of their way to make up for lost time. By the time the Sun returned to your romantic sector on the 20th April, as he does at this time every year, Mars and Mercury were both in their last full day and both left within the Sun’s 36 hours.
Mars, who had already spent six weeks fuelling your romantic passions and fighting spirit with Ceres, here from the 5th February to the 30th April, had spent nearly three months getting to the heart of what you are fighting for. Even Mercury, planet of communication, has spent nearly three weeks giving your heart a voice, before retrograding back out. The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of May in your romantic sector and not due to leave until the 21st May that is still the case. You have had a parade of planets move through by this point, except for the one planet that matters.
Venus, planet of love, reached a point in early February where she should have been less than four weeks away from your romantic sector. Instead Venus turned retrograde, doing a U turn that took her away from, rather than towards your romantic sector. Venus is back in direct motion but she won’t return to your romantic sector until the 6th June. However, once she returns she’ll be on her own, without the Sun’s reality checks and with all the preparation work done. Not due to leave until the 5th July, Venus will spend a month making up for lost time. With Mars due to move through your relationship sector from the 5th June to the 21st July, the planets of love and passion have something special planned from early next month.
Capricorn May 2017 Money Horoscope
To begin with there is nothing to suggest that there is anything unusual happening and in fact anything at all, with the money gods nowhere to be seen. That is to be expected at this time of year, with Mercury having left your income sector in February, ending all planetary activity for the year and the Sun, Mercury and Mars not due to return to your financial sector until June. Apart from the Moon’s monthly visits to your two money houses, there is nothing to suggest that anything will change.
Except it does and dramatically so, when the lunar nodes return to your two money houses on the 10th May. This will be like turning on a switch, one that will see a current run through income and money matters for the next 18 months. This also sets the scene for a series of eclipses over the next two years, which will have the power to bring dramatic shifts on both fronts. You will get your first taste of power of both the lunar nodes and these eclipses in August, when a lunar eclipse in your income sector and a total solar eclipse in your financial sector will reveal their full influence.
The South Node will return to your income sector and the North Node to your financial sector on the 10th May and there they will stay until November 2018. These aren’t planets and are gravitational pulls and the timing couldn’t be better, especially for income matters. This will be the South Node’s first visit to your income sector in 17 years and it comes just as Jupiter is making his first visit to your career sector in 12 years. More importantly, it comes just as Mars has returned to fire things up on both the job and career fronts.
Capricorn May 2017 Career Horoscope
Talk about a turnaround. Your professional year has shifted from feeling stalled and under pressure to all of a sudden being back in the game. In your career sector since September and in retrograde motion since February, life hasn’t been easy for Jupiter, planet of luck and expansion. A parade of planets moving through your home and family sector has put pressure of Jupiter. Now this is one big and bad ass planet, more than capable of looking after himself and this won’t deter Jupiter or the opportunities he’s creating.
However, you are a different story and months of professional pressures and work/life balance issues may have worn you down. This made Mars’ return to your work sector on the 21st April a game changer, especially as it came just a day after the Sun left your home and family sector. This put Mars and Jupiter on the same page and in the build up to their alignment on the 12th/13th May, this will see your job and professional confidence rise. Jupiter works through the principle of expansion. You have had the downside of that in that this expanded the professional pressure you were under.
Yet as the planets of war and luck come together, this will expand your warrior spirit and an urge to fight back. Mars returns to your work sector every two years and will spend the whole of May here. However, this is the first time in 36 years that Mars returned to find Jupiter in your career sector. This is Jupiter’ last full month in retrograde motion and Mars’ only full month in your work sector, so they’ll be working together to make it count. This could have some lucrative outcomes as well.
