Capricorn - May 2019
Hello Capricorn! Expressing yourself will be an adventure in May, as passionate Lilith kicks up a storm in your house of communication! She arrives here on the 7th, and the first item on her task list is to drop the social etiquette around your conversations, and have you saying exactly what you feel, as soon as you feel it! If you are a typical goat, you are probably very discreet around expressing your opinions, and know instinctively when not to speak out of turn. This will therefore be an unusual experience for you, but one which you are likely to find freeing and empowering. It’s all about saying what you think and being yourself, and in this process you are not only living your own truth, but also asking the ones who love you to accept that truth too. You won’t have a lot of time in the coming months for those who lie or try to impress with their words; you need to be around people who are honest and open in all ways.
Mercury makes a stop over in your house of love and leisure during the days of the 7th to 21st, and new romantic partners entering your world now will be intelligent, talkative and youthful in both appearance and attitude. You need a mental rapport with potential partners during these days, physical attraction is not going to be enough. Mercury and Uranus will link up here between the 7th and 17th, a time of unusual and unexpected romantic conversations with some interesting and rather eccentric others! Similarly, hobbies and pastimes are likely to take a more intellectual turn under Mercury’s influence, you may also find you are discussing leisure plans more with those who spend their time around you. This house also rules children, and Mercury’s time here lays fruitful ground for discussing important matters with a child in a constructive and practical way.
This month’s Moon cycle is all about how you prioritise your time, and how often you really put your own needs first. The new Moon of the 4th sextiles artistic Neptune and is a highly creative period for you. It’s important during this phase that you direct energy back to yourself, and spend some time working on your personal plan. The full Moon of the 18th on the other hand illuminates your house of friends, and is all about getting out there and paying attention to those who need you. The Moon opposes Mercury during this period, suggesting potential squabbles with friends over leisure activities. With Pluto also influencing matters, an important ending may arise in a particular friendship which has run its course, and letting go of this negative energy will be profoundly transformative for you in a positive way.
Jupiter’s retrograde motion through your house of secrets is keeping you on your toes in May, as your ongoing faith that the universe will bring exactly what you require suddenly takes a knock! After a period of spiritual enrichment and general contentment, you may begin to feel that restlessness and uncertainty creeping back in, amid the realisation that there is more work to be done in this part of your life before you can truly move forward. Psychically, this is a period of deep reflection for you; if you have been a little wasteful with your psychic and spiritual gifts, a time of conversation and of channelling your energy will emerge now, and you will discover more about how to control your emotions and calm your mind. Keep moving here, you are learning more than you know. Have a great month, Capricorn!
