That the focus is on your relationships this month is a given, with the Sun always spending the first three weeks of May in your relationship sector. Until leaving on the 21st May the Sun will continue to keep the solar spotlight on your relationships. However, it was during the Sun’s first full day here last month that Mars’ six week visit wrapped up. Anything that was going to come to a head would have by now. With Pluto, your ruling planet spending his first full month in retrograde motion in your communication sector and Mercury, planet communication returning to your relationship sector on the 16th May, you have the communication front covered.
A Full Moon in Scorpio on the 11th May might put this to the test, but with a chance by then to give the past and unsaid words a voice, this is more likely to lead to a breakthrough. May is also likely to be a good month professionally and also a lucrative month. Venus and Mercury are both making rare double dip visits to your work sector. Mercury, who left early last month returned three weeks later and on the 29th May, Venus returned 26 days after leaving. Mercury is here until the 16th May but Venus will stay on for the whole month, both working with Saturn in your income sector.
However, the North Node’s return to your work sector on the 10th May will see unexpected work and job developments come into play. Whatever this triggers across the income, work and career fronts has at least the rest of this year to play out.
Scorpio May 2017 Love Horoscope
That the focus is on your relationships at this time of year is a given, with the Sun always spending the first three weeks of May in your relationship sector. For the whole last month everything was anything but the norm, with the Sun’s return on the 20th April triggering a dramatic 48 hour period that saw the Sun return and both Mercury and Mars leave. Mercury retrograded back out, with a lot of passion and even frustration suddenly shifting to the Sun’s more objective approach to relationship matters.
It was on the 30th April, just hours before moving into the new month that Ceres left your relationship sector, not to return for another four years. Ceres, dwarf planet and goddess of the solar system, has had a huge influence on your relationships over the last two years. Having initially spent three months here in mid 2016, Ceres retrograded back out, only to return in early February. Ceres was here as Mars moved through, as Mercury returned and then left and for the Sun’s first 10 days. Not directly influencing your relationships, Ceres’ mission was to define your relationship needs and priorities.
Ceres would then feed that information to the planets as they moved through. Ceres spent the most time with Mars, leaving you with a clear sense of what you’re fighting for. Mercury, who retrograded back out of your relationship sector during the Sun’s first full day, will return on the 16th May, this time in direct motion. Having already spent time giving the past and unsaid words a voice, Mercury will return in time to give your relationships a voice and to move on. Yet with Pluto, your ruling planet, spending his first full month in retrograde motion in your communication sector, you’ll still be able to give the past and unsaid words a voice.
Scorpio May 2017 Money Horoscope
The Sun’s return to your financial sector on the 21st May will always put the focus on your financial situation and money matters at this time each year. However, what is not the norm is to already have Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos here for a month. Mars returned on the 21st April, exactly a month before the Sun was due to return to kick off your annual financial review. This gives Mars time to fire up your financial passions and fighting spirit and to get you excited about more than just the financial housekeeping the Sun tends to focus on.
With Saturn in your income sector since December 2014, this has created some healthy competition between income and financial forces. In his first full month in retrograde motion, Saturn is more focused on the road behind, so will be happy to leave the road ahead to money matters. With your two money houses sitting opposite each other, this does set the scene for an opposition between Saturn and Mars. However that won’t happen until the 28th/30th May, with plenty of time to sense this building and to use this as motivation on both fronts. Saturn is a giant planet, but also the most stoic and a bit of pressure from Mars won’t put you or him off your stride.
It is Mars who is more likely to react, with the warrior planet of the cosmos full of hot headed enthusiasm. Yet even then, this is more likely to see financial tension turn into motivation, throwing fuel on your financial passions and fighting spirit. With the Sun returning to your financial sector on the 21st May his reality checks will keep things in perspective.
Scorpio May 2017 Career Horoscope
When the Sun left your work sector on the 20th April this should have brought any push on the work and job fronts to a close or to a point where the caretaker crew could take over. With the Sun, Mercury and Mars not returning to your career sector until July, May and June should be the quieter months of your professional year.
Yet that illusion was shattered just a day after the Sun left, with Mercury having retrograded back into your work sector on the 21st April. As if one planet returning for a double dip visit wasn’t enough, Venus returned for a double dip visit on the 29th April. Mercury was back within three weeks of leaving and Venus within 26 days. It was almost as though they waited for the Sun to leave, before returning. Mercury will remain in retrograde motion until the 4th May, but won’t leave until the 16th May. Venus, who retrograded back out early last month, returned in direct motion and won’t leave until early next month. Venus will spend the whole of May in your work sector, on top of the two months she has already spent here.
This is not the norm, to have two overlapping double dip visits and not when it is Mercury and Venus, the planets that can trigger developments. When this happens, the question to ask is why? What was so important that the professional gods had to call back planets that had already left? The answer could be the North Node’s return to your career sector on the 10th May, opening the door to major developments on the career and professional fronts over the next 18 months. From the 10th May forces across the income, work and career fronts will be electrified.
