Scorpio May 2018 Horoscope: Love, Money & Career


We have less the end of an era on the job front this month and more a transition. Since his return to your work sector in 2010 Uranus has been the driving force on the job front, constantly working to put work and job matters on an authentic path. The Sun left your work sector last month, but with Mercury here until the 14th May you’re still tying up loose ends. This should be the point where the reins are handed back to Uranus, who will continue to keep the wheels turning, as he has for the last eight years. Instead, Uranus will leave just two days later as well, on the 16th May.

There is no danger of work and job matters going off the boil, but staying behind are a group of dwarf planets and asteroids who are charged with keeping the wheels turning, but without reinventing the wheel. It is on the 16th May that Uranus will follow Mercury into your relationship sector, joining the Sun in his final days. Returning just a day after a New Moon in your relationship sector on the 15th May, this is the perfect time for a fresh start. What Uranus has done on the job front over the last eight years, he now begins to do on the relationship front over the next eight years.

With Jupiter in Scorpio, a balance between your personal and relationship needs will be policed from the get go, but Uranus is here to create something authentic. You can’t have an authentic relationship without having the right balance between your personal and relationship needs. Neptune will also become a more potent player this month, as he spends his first full month on his own since returning to a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart in 2012. This should also be a good month for money matters.

Love 2017Scorpio May 2018 Love Horoscope

There is always going to be a lot of focus on your relationships at this time of year, due to the fact that the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of May in your relationship sector. This year Venus, planet of love and guardian of your relationships has already been and gone, allowing you to start the month with a clear sense of what you want from your relationships. The Sun returned to turn the solar spotlight onto your relationships five days before Venus left and it was during those five days that gave you a chance to finalise your shopping list.

Whether single, in a relationship or between relationships, knowing what you want from your relationships was the starting point. Things get interesting midmonth, starting with Mercury, planet of communication’s return to your relationship sector on the 14th May and the Moon’s return just a few hours later. This begins the lead up to a New Moon on the 15th May, during Mercury’s first full day. As the Sun and Moon align to create a New Moon that brings a chance to commit to your relationships, the future and the journey ahead, this will ensure there is support on the communication front.

Yet it is on the 16th May and just hours before the Moon leaves on the same day that everything changes. For this is the day that Uranus returns to your relationship sector for the first time since 1942, beginning a relationship journey that will take until 2026 to run its course. Everything until that point is part of the annual update your relationships go through at this time every year. Whatever your starting point, this is the start of a journey towards creating something real and authentic.

Money 2017Scorpio May 2018 Money Horoscope

There should be a new sense of financial confidence this month, nothing earth shattering or game changing, but enough to restore your faith and inspire your imagination. The Sun will return to your financial sector on 21st May and as he does at this time every year, will turn the solar spotlight onto your financial situation and money matters. This is the point where it does get real, but the reality is that this year you don’t have the challenges of previous years. Venus, planet of money found that out when she returned to your financial sector on the 25th April.

You start the month with Venus here and apart from the Moon’s visit from the 16th May to the 18th May, she will remain on her own until leaving on the 20th May. Leaving less than 24 hours before the Sun returns, allows Venus to get in first and pitch her mandate. For where the Sun is all about keeping it real and taking care of the financial housekeeping required at this time every year, Venus returns to fuel your financial confidence, desires and expectations. Venus’ focus is on the ‘what’ and not the ‘when, where and how’.

While the Sun will turn the lights on and keep things real, it is Mercury’s return on the 30th May that will bring the smart head for money needed to get your head in the game. This is when you’re able to make smart financial choices, decisions and plans, making this the time to focus on the ‘when, where and how’. For the first time in four years, Saturn isn’t on the other side of the sky, so there will be no oppositions, financial tension or pressure. The Sun and Mercury will both be gone by the end of next month, making this a short but easy annual update. It starts with figuring out what you want and ends with figuring out how to make it happen.

Career 2017Scorpio May 2018 Career Horoscope

There is enough that is familiar about this month to have you believe that it’s business as usual, but it is anything but. For you, business as usual means that things are settling back down after the Sun’s departure from your work sector last month. The Sun wrapped up its month long visit to your work sector on the 20th April, something that happens at that time every year. Since Uranus’ return in 2010, May has been the month when your annual review of work and job matters ended and this giant of a planet takes the wheel again, shifting the focus back to the ongoing journey.

The fact that Mercury is still here, tying up loose ends until the 14th May is not unusual, except for the fact that he returned in early March for what should have been a 15 day visit. A retrograde phase has bought Mercury and you more time to makes choices, decisions and plans and to keep your head in the game. However, Mercury’s departure on the 14th May should be the point when things move back to their default mode, which is Uranus back at the wheel. However, by the time the Moon moves through from the 12th May to the 14th May, still here when Mercury leaves, it will be clear that this year the script has changed.

That is because just two days later, on the 16th May, Uranus will leave as well, bringing an eight year visit to lead, push and cajole work and job matters onto an authentic path. Uranus will return in November to tie up loose ends, but this is the point when the driving force on the job front for the past eight years moves on. There will be a band of dwarf planets and asteroids staying on to keep work and job matters on track, but not with the intensity you’ve known. The first half of the month is the final push to put things on the right path, after which they will continue to unfold and move forward on their own steam.
