May should be a pleasant month for Capricorn, and I hope it will be for you. Every year during May, the sun spends some time in Taurus, the sign of beauty, in your solar 5th house of pleasure. This year is no exception, and the sign of Taurus will be hosting Mercury and Jupiter too. Jupiter is generally a pretty darn pleasant planet, so you have almost no excuse for not at least trying to invest your time in things that please you, in the things you find beautiful. The universe is giving you permission to do so, and as a native of a sign that puts great store by getting permission, this is important.
To put this in perspective, next month will be different. There’ll be a lunar eclipse, Saturn will try to shake up your career, and Jupiter will leave Taurus, not to return for another 12 years. Next month also sees rather ferocious battles between Pluto in your own sign, Uranus in Aries, and planets in your opposite sign of Cancer. Not so pleasant. So make hay while the sun shines, as the farmers say.
Neptune also starts slowing down in May, in preparation for stationing (getting powerful) next month. Neptune is in your solar house of speaking, writing, language, communicating, etc. The obvious implication is that as Neptune slows down, so will your speaking. It’s like Neptune wants to feel its way through whatever it is you want to communicate and so will take its time before letting you spit out the words. That’s not necessarily a bad thing. It can expand your ability to communicate by opening you up to subtleties and levels of thoughtfulness you wouldn’t previously have considered.
Mars is still in your travel house and makes a nice angle with Mercury (another travel planet) on Mother’s Day. If you need to trek out of town to see your Mom, the signs look pretty good.
Now, on to the other big theme of the month: Gemini-ness. Gemini represents your job sector, the part of your chart that rules your time at the office. A new moon eclipse in this sign on the 20th could bring welcome news to Capricornian job-seekers. This sector of your chart is very active from the time of the eclipse on, and you should be too. With Venus in this part of your chart (especially powerful around the 15th), your best bet for job success is to team up with other people. Go for it!
