Sagittarius - May 2020
How are you, Sagittarius?! Finances are in the spotlight for centaurs in April, as Pluto turns retrograde on the 26th in your house of money! Not to beat about the bush, this is likely to be a frustrating and very limiting period for decision-making around money matters, as his pace for most of the month will slow down to almost a halt in preparation for his imminent direction change. You may find that financial projects are more difficult to initiate, and a never-ending trail of outgoings and finicky expenses could prevent you from saving any of your income or straightening out your accounts. If at all possible, important decisions about this part of your life might be best put on hold until Pluto picks up speed again in mid-May. A helpful sextile with Mercury between the 3rd and 11th is fortunate for exploring ways to make a profit from property, or for working from home or with a family member. Any discussion of finances with relatives is likely to be unrelentingly honest, so be prepared!
The lunar cycle reaches a head on the 8th with a full Moon in your house of friends. This is a time for letting go of outworn relationships and ensuring that the people you surround yourself with are providing positive energy and support on your terms, not just on theirs. Send those who are toxic and negative on their way, and move forward into an atmosphere which is clear and calm in your social circle. The Moon cycle begins afresh with a new Moon in your house of work and everyday routines on the 23rd. Unexpected and perhaps disruptive changes to your daily itinerary are probable here, and offers of new jobs or roles in working life will arrive without warning and may require a snap decision. Trust your instincts and don’t be afraid to try something different.
Venus’s arrival in your house of partnerships on the 4th of April bodes well for your love life, as romance, kindness and affection flow naturally and gently into all your relationship interactions. It’s a time when you will want someone around with whom you can share experiences and talk through ideas, and this desire may take you on a search for love if you are of a mind to meet a soul mate. If you are happy with life as it is, just being around a close family member or friend will satisfy your need for some emotional sustenance and feedback. Venus does form a confusing connection with Neptune after the 20th and throughout most of May, creating problems around household decisions, as partners refuse to commit to a specific course of action or plan. An emotional trine with Mars forms on the 5th and lasts until the end of the month, and this marks a passionate period in which feelings of love will be expressed intensely and genuinely, although with some jealousy and possessiveness too.
Communication will take a serious turn this month as Saturn settles into your house of conversations and thoughts after a sign change in March. It is normal under the influence of this transit to be a little cautious about expressing ideas, and opinions; you may be more conscious of the limitations of your knowledge, or find yourself in situations where you feel unable to talk, openly and unhindered, about yourself and your life. Saturn’s conjunction with assertive Mars between the 1st and 11th is fantastic for holding important discussions about your career and ambitions, or attending a new course of vocational study such as accountancy, public relations or business management. Have a great April!
