MAY 2017
Capricorn (12/21 - 1/20)

By mid-month, you’ll be more than ready to get started on a new idea! If you’ve been doing your homework, the next few months will allow for some of your careful planning to pay off. Mercury will station direct on May 3rd, but wait until after May 17th to initiate a new course of action, as we’ll still feel the influence of the “shadow” phase of this phenomenon until then. Venus went direct on April 15th, however, the “shadow” phase is in effect until May 18th. Venus will be moving forward through your 4th house of home and family, which can sweeten the energies in these areas of life.

On May 15th, Mercury will move into Taurus and your 5th house of romance, creativity, and children. Enjoy spending time with loved ones. Calm communications and long-term planning will be emphasized. You or a partner could be reluctant to get out of your “comfort zone.” Be gentle with yourself and others and focus on moving one step at a time.

On May 10th, the North Node will end a journey through Virgo that began November 12th, 2015. The Lunar Nodes represent the points where the orbit of the moon crosses the ecliptic (the Sun’s path in the sky from our perspective on Earth). The North Node is the zodiacal point where the Moon crosses the ecliptic on its way North and the sign it’s in sets overarching themes for our planet. While the North Node was in Virgo, the prevailing energies supported constructive participation, following through with commitments, establishing clear boundaries, and physical wellbeing. Because the Lunar Nodes move backwards through the zodiac, the North Node will ingress into Leo on May 10th.

After this date, the emphasis will shift from productivity to creative expression. The North Node in Leo, Uranus in Aries, and Saturn in Sagittarius will form a Grand Trine in the fire signs this month that will last from mid-May until October. The second half of May and all of June and July will be especially powerful times to release psychological conditioning that may be obstructing your ability move towards greater fulfillment.

The Fire Grand Trine will be activating your 8th house of intimacy, your 12th house of the subconscious and spirituality, and your 4th house of home and family. This Summer will be the ideal time to make some internal changes that can lead to improved relationships with family members and other loved ones. You’ll be encouraged to let go of any facets of yourself that you’ve outgrown. You may be letting go of ideas, the illusion of control, or a relationship. You could experience changes to your living situation and will likely be craving more freedom. You’ll have the ability to receive more love and intimacy, but you will need to forge a strong connection with yourself first.

On May 10th, the Full Moon will be in Scorpio and your 11th house of friendship and community. It will be great timing for heart to heart talks that can strengthen a friendship. Efforts that help to expose social injustices can be especially effective around this time.

On May 20th, the Sun will ingress into Gemini and your 6th house of daily work and wellness. The energy will support networking and trying new health-related routines. On May 25th, the New Moon in Gemini will provide support for intentions related to collaborative projects, making business connections, writing and editing, sales, and communication skills.
