Capricorn - May 2020
Hi Capricorn! Life could take a rather serious turn in April, as Pluto slows down in your sign to prepare for his next direction change! When he starts to lose speed, he becomes frustrated and unmotivated, and with nowhere to go, all that intense Plutonian passion gets backed up and can cause frustration, irritability and emotional stress. You may simply feel that life is suddenly going nowhere and you can’t seem to move forward with plans. The key here is to find a physical or creative outlet for this powder keg of energy; channel it into something meaningful and constructive, and you will feel calmer and more able to avoid emotional outbursts and conflicts. Pluto’s conjunction with Jupiter here, which will run until the end of 2020, is more positive for working on your personal growth, as a desire for genuine, experienced knowledge and wisdom takes you on a journey to faraway places and into spiritual enlightenment.
Family life and issues will be at the centre of your world during the days up to the 19th, as the Sun heats up your domestic zone. A strong sense of responsibility to loved ones is likely to pervade all your choices during these days, and you will probably be called upon to organise family events, and generally be the rock that others cling to and rely on to see them through their worrisome times. You are more likely to pay attention to the presentation of your home now, inside and out, and tightening up on security could feature on your chore list. Feelings of over-protectiveness can sometimes be generated by this transit, hence you will need to keep a desire to possess or control your near and dear ones in check. Take care also around the days of the 9th to 18th when the Sun squares Jupiter. Careless words could be said here and in your keenness to offer advice and support, you might come across as a little overbearing or judgemental.
The Moon will be new on the 23rd in your house of romance, and an electric conjunction with impulsive Uranus here could send an exciting and unexpected new love into your world! This experience will hit you like a runaway train and turn your world on its head; take things as slowly as you can, and make sure feelings are real and honest before making any important decisions about where to take your new relationship. Mercury also arrives in this area on the 28th, and the last days of the month and into early May will offer you the chance to try a new hobby or creative activity which will stretch your mind and imagination. If you have children, this is also a wonderful period for some heartfelt communication, with particular reference to their education or future plans.
Mars and Venus combine forces after the 4th to provide some brilliant chances to earn extra cash through a new job, financial project or promotion. Such is the inventive brilliance of these two planets when they share ideas, that these ventures are very likely to feature some kind of creative or artistic genius, with you as the central source of some awesome suggestions. This aspect persists until early May, although with Venus slowing down to prepare for an imminent direction change, it never perfects, which could convey a sense of not really tying up loose ends around work-related plans. The full Moon in your career sector on the 8th might also push you into a reflection period with regard to ambitions and where you are headed next on your career journey. Enjoy your month!
