Monthly Career Horoscopes - May 2018
There is the mix of the ordinary and the extraordinary this month, both of which is propelling income and career matters forward. The ordinary is that in your career sector since 2008, May is always Pluto's first full month in retrograde motion. At the same time the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of May in your income sector, with the two able to support each other. Yet what is happening this month is bigger than both combined, which is already clear on the career front. This year you have Saturn here as well and his retrograde turn last month as well, puts a lot of focus on retracing your steps. That should be where all the focus is this month but instead, until he leaves your career sector on the 16th May, Mars will continue to push things forward. This means you will need to keep one foot on the brake and another on the accelerator. However, after Mars and Pluto aligned late last month, you should have a good feel for when to hold back and when to push on. It is on the 16th May, the same day that Mars leaves your career sector that Uranus returns to your income sector, to kick off the biggest income push in decades. Mars will return in August, but until then is happy to let things settle professionally. Fortunately, the Moon will visit your career sector twice this month. The first visit, from the 4th May to the 7th May will come while Mars is still here, with a chance to put your professional instincts, imagination, passions and fighting spirit on the same page. By the time the Moon comes full circle on the 31st May Mars will be gone, with a chance to regroup.
It is business as usual on the professional front this month or so it would appear during the first half of the month. Apart from a Full Moon in your work sector over Easter, the only thing keeping the professional momentum going is having the South Node in your career sector. However, as has been the case since May 2017, the South Node's focus is more about keeping things on track and maintaining a sense of direction. To not have planetary activity in either of your two professional houses at this time of year is the norm, with most planetary activity on the career front usually over by the end of February and things not starting up on the job front until September. However, everything changes on the 16th May, with a chance just a few days earlier to get wind of what lies ahead. The Moon will make its monthly visit to your career sector from the 7th May to the 9th May and as is always the case, this will fuel your professional instincts and imagination, while leaving you with some valuable clues, hunches and insights. It is less that the Moon moves through that is significant and more what this allows you to pick up on. For on the 16th May, a week to the day after the Moon leaves, Mars will return to your career sector, with game changing implications. Even if this had been an ordinary visit, which means Mars moving through in six weeks, fuelling your professional passions, fighting and competitive spirit and then moving on, this would be significant. Instead, Mars will return, but instead of moving on will retrograde, eventually retrograding back out in August, only to return for another two months. This is the start of a remarkable visit that will take until November to fully play out, one that could change the whole professional landscape.
There is something special developing on both the job and career fronts this month and that is long before Jupiter and Neptune move back into alignment from the 20th May to the 28th May. This is the point in the month when the stars will literally align on the job and career fronts. With the Moon moving through your work sector from the 27th May to the 29th May and new doors opening on the income front from the 20th May, the month will end with a buzz of activity across the income, work and career fronts. At the start of the month, you're still adjusting to a new normal on the career front and a Full Moon on the job front that is literally still running its course. The month starts with the Moon still in your work sector after a Full Moon on the 30th April, something that won't run its course until the 2nd May. Just starting the month with the Moon in your work sector is an advantage, yet as the first Full Moon with lucky Jupiter on board in 12 years, this will definitely start the month with a bang. This comes just as Neptune is still in his early days on his own in your career sector, for the first time since arriving in 2012. Chiron's departure from your career sector on the 17th April has changed the professional dynamics, but it wasn't until Juno left on the 28th April that Neptune was finally on his own. It is now all about chasing your professional dreams and as Neptune and Jupiter move closer to their alignment from the 20th May to the 28th May, expect both your job and professional confidence to rise. This is a turning point on both the job and career fronts, something Venus will have a chance to piggy back off when she returns to your income sector on the 20th May.
There is both a changing of the guard on the professional front this month and a chance to tie up loose ends, for now anyway. While the Sun left your career sector last month, as he does at that time every year, it is not usual to still have Mercury here, helping you to tie up loose ends. Mercury returned in early March for what should have been a 15 day visit aimed at giving you the intellectually savvy edge and articulation needed to get your head in the game and make smart choices, decisions and plans. Two months on, a retrograde phase means that Mercury is still here. Until leaving on the 14th May, Mercury is working as he does each year, to help finalise your game plan and resolutions and any other strategic moves or decisions you need to make. This is the point when Mercury hands the reins back to Uranus, who has been here since 2010. Uranus is the force that has been keeping the wheels turning for the last eight years, while also helping to steer your professional game in a real and authentic direction. However, the Moon's return to your career sector from the 12th May to the 14th May will make it clear that this year is different, with Uranus refusing to take the reins back. That is because Uranus will leave on the 16th May, dramatically easing both the pressure and the professional push. There is no danger of losing your professional momentum, with an assortment of dwarf planets and asteroids staying on to keep the wheels moving. The difference with the crew that will take over when Uranus leaves on the 16th May is they're not interested in reinventing the wheel. If you're going to do that, it needs to be before the 16th May. However, as you've been reinventing the wheel since 2010, this will be more about the finishing touches.
You have reached the most extraordinary and game changing professional month ever. Just having Saturn and Pluto in your work sector at the same time is extraordinary, with Saturn's return in December a game changer. Yet Mars' return in March took this to a whole new level, with all three meeting up for the first time here in our lifetime. It was late last month that Mars and Pluto aligned, with the planets of war and revolution giving you a clear sense of what you're fighting for. Until Mars leaves on the 16th May, expect the pace to remain hectic on the job front. While the Sun spends the first three weeks of May in your career sector, always has and always will, to start with this is very ordinary and if anything, is a backup for what is happening on the job front. After all, the Sun returns to your career sector at this time every year, but you've never had Mars, Pluto and Saturn in your work sector at the same time before. At best, the Sun is providing a clear sense of professional direction, with Venus' departure late last week having left you with your professional confidence fuelled and a better sense of where you're going. However, it is in Mars' final hours in your work sector that Uranus returns to your career sector on the 16th May. The same day that Mars leaves your work sector Uranus returns to your career sector, for the first time since 1942. As Pluto and Saturn, both in retrograde motion pull back the reins on the job front, Uranus will unleash a whole new wave of unexpected developments on the career front. The Moon and Mercury will both return to your career sector on the 14th May, with a New Moon on the 15th May the tailwind that this massive new chapter that Uranus opens the door to. For here until 2026, Uranus is here for anything but an annual update.
While the Sun won't return to your career sector until the 21st May, as he does at this time every year, things are already underway from the get go. It was Venus' return on the 25th April that not only set things in motion earlier than usual this year, but has given her a chance to move through without distraction. Venus will leave on the 20th May, the day before the Sun returns and this leaves her free to focus on her own mandate. The Sun will return to throw the solar spotlight onto your career and professional situation, matters and options in an objective way. The Sun deals in reality and in 'what is'. Venus deals in 'what ifs' and returns each year to fuel your professional confidence, attract opportunities and steer things in a lucrative direction. Mercury's return on the 30th May will come 10 days after Venus leaves and it is his intellectually savvy edge and articulation that will allow you to get your head in the game, ideas on the table and the communication lines open. This leaves Venus free to focus on the 'what', knowing the Sun and Mercury will take care of the 'when, where and how'. Yet it is in Venus' final days that things really get interesting, thanks to Mars' return to your work sector on the 16th May. Work and job matters should have run their course by the end of February, which they had. This is a completely different situation to the annual update that took place on the job front or that is taking place on the career front this month. Instead of moving through in six weeks, Mars is here for months and with help from Venus from the get go, the warrior planet of the cosmos is returning to fire things up across the job and career fronts. This professional year is becoming a lot more exciting.
There is likely to be a very different feel to the month from the get go, with Neptune still in his early days of flying solo on the job front. Neptune, planet of dreams and fantasies returned to your work sector in 2012, but until the 28th April, less than 48 hours before moving into the new month, Juno's departure left him on his own. It was Chiron's departure on the 17th April, that brought the planet of healing's eight year visit to a close. This brought to an end a need to constantly revisit the past, with the final hours of April finally giving Neptune the freedom to play things his way. This is giving you the confidence to start chasing that dream job or to start creating the outlines for that dream job. Often the question asked when we are finally inspired to do something or to go after a dream is 'why now'. The answer this time is clear and it's because, after six years dreamy Neptune finally has the freedom to take the lead. With the support of Jupiter in your income sector, this will see your job confidence rise during the course of the month. The Moon's visit to your work sector from the 9th May to the 12th May will be your first chance to check in, making this all about listening to the emotional, intuitive and imaginative responses triggered. It's the Moon's return to your career sector from the 18th May to the 20th May that is likely to take you by surprise. With the Sun still over a month away, there should be no new career developments on the horizon. Instead of on the horizon, they will instead be right in front of you, with Venus returning to your career sector on the 20th May. Returning to find Neptune on his own in your work sector and lucky Jupiter in your income sector, Venus kicks off some stunning weeks across the income, work and career fronts.
There is enough that is familiar about this month to have you believe that it's business as usual, but it is anything but. For you, business as usual means that things are settling back down after the Sun's departure from your work sector last month. The Sun wrapped up its month long visit to your work sector on the 20th April, something that happens at that time every year. Since Uranus' return in 2010, May has been the month when your annual review of work and job matters ended and this giant of a planet takes the wheel again, shifting the focus back to the ongoing journey. The fact that Mercury is still here, tying up loose ends until the 14th May is not unusual, except for the fact that he returned in early March for what should have been a 15 day visit. A retrograde phase has bought Mercury and you more time to makes choices, decisions and plans and to keep your head in the game. However, Mercury's departure on the 14th May should be the point when things move back to their default mode, which is Uranus back at the wheel. However, by the time the Moon moves through from the 12th May to the 14th May, still here when Mercury leaves, it will be clear that this year the script has changed. That is because just two days later, on the 16th May, Uranus will leave as well, bringing an eight year visit to lead, push and cajole work and job matters onto an authentic path. Uranus will return in November to tie up loose ends, but this is the point when the driving force on the job front for the past eight years moves on. There will be a band of dwarf planets and asteroids staying on to keep work and job matters on track, but not with the intensity you've known. The first half of the month is the final push to put things on the right path, after which they will continue to unfold and move forward on their own steam.
There is a mix of the ordinary and the extraordinary in play this month. The ordinary is that with the Sun always spending the first three weeks of May in your work sector, this is always the point in any year when the solar spotlight is on your work situation and job matters. The fact that Venus has already been and gone means you start the month with a good sense of what you want and of what your heart is telling you. Venus only left on the 25th April, so the transition from her focus on the 'what' and the Sun's on the 'when, where and how' has only just happened. With the Sun leaving on the 21st May and Mercury only here from the 14th May to the 30th May, all planetary activity on the job front should be over by the end of the month. That is what would happen in an ordinary year. While Venus and Mercury can arrive earlier or leave later than the Sun, as is the case this year, it is only ever by a matter of days or weeks. Yet you have probably already sensed where this is going and while this is the ordinary template, this year we also have the extraordinary and by extraordinary I'm talking game changing. It all happens over the course of a three day period from the 14th May to the 16th May. That would have been the case without the Moon moving through from the 14th May to the 16th May, but this simply adds more weight. It begins with both the Moon and Mercury's return to your work sector on the 14th May, setting the scene for a New Moon on the 15th May. This falls in Mercury's first full day and just as the Sun moves into his final five days. Yet it is in the Moon's final hours that Uranus, planet of surprise, synchronicity and the unexpected returns during the Moon's final hours, on the 16th May. Returning for the first time since 1942, Uranus returns to begin a massive new journey on the job front, one that will take until 2026 to run its course.
For the first time this year, you move into a month with planetary activity in one of your two professional houses. This is slightly ahead of schedule but not enough to make this an outlier. What I'm talking about is moving into the new month to find Venus in your work sector, weeks before the Sun is due to return on the 21st May. Venus and Mercury will always travel with the Sun, though they can move ahead or travel behind. That is the case this year, with Venus having returned on the 25th April and Mercury returning on the 30th May. It is the Sun that sticks religiously to his schedule, always returning to shine the solar spotlight on your work situation and job matters three weeks into May each year. What makes this year special is how very ordinary this is. For the first time in four years the Sun, Mercury and Venus all return to find Saturn is no longer in opposition. This means there isn't the professional pressure or work/life balance tension you have faced in the past or the roadblocks. Instead, with Mars returning to your income sector on the 16th May and Jupiter having just wrapped up a 13 month visit to your career sector last October, there is both support and momentum. Venus will leave your work sector on the 20th May, the day before the Sun returns and 10 days before Mercury returns and three weeks into June they'll all be gone as well. This is a short period of focus on work and job matters, starting with Venus' return on the 25th April and ending with the Sun's departure on the 22nd June. Yet with no roadblocks and nothing but green lights, this should be the best two months of 2018 on the job front. Venus' focus until she leaves is more on the 'what' and on steering things in a lucrative direction, while the Sun and Mercury will focus more on the 'when, where and how'.
Starting the month with the Moon in your career sector is always an advantage and especially with a Full Moon on the 30th April spilling into the early days of the month. Technically a Full Moon is an exact moment of time when the Sun and Moon are in exact opposition, but in reality, a Full Moon will be in effect until the Moon leaves your career sector, which it does on the 2nd May. So you not only start the month with your professional instincts and imagination fuelled from the get go but riding Full Moon waves. You will always have a Full Moon in your career sector at this time each year, but it has been 12 years since lucky Jupiter was last on board. With Jupiter in retrograde motion, this is the push that anything stalled or stuck needs, at a time when the planet of luck is moving back towards a second alignment with Neptune in your income sector. That alignment will be exact from the 20th May to the 28th May and the timing couldn't be better. For it is on the 20th May that Venus returns to your work sector, over a month ahead of the Sun. With the Moon in your work sector from the 18th May to the 20th May and coming full circle from the Full Moon in your career sector from the 27th May to the 29th May, there is a lot happening in the final two weeks of the month. Venus will arrive wearing her professional hat but as the planet of money, she will always return with a mission to fuel your job confidence, attract opportunities and steer things in a lucrative direction. To return to find Jupiter and Neptune, the planets of luck and dreams creating stunning conditions across the income and career fronts will give Venus wings from the get go. This creates a stunning end to the month across the income, work and career fronts.
While things are still fairly low key on the job front, the fact that there is planetary activity here at all, at this time of year is not the norm. Venus' return to your work sector next month, over a month ahead of the Sun is when things will really take off. Until then, with the North Node and Ceres in your work sector, they're keeping the wheels turning and more importantly they are steering things in the right direction. This comes just as Mercury and Uranus, in their final weeks in your income sector are doing the same. With Mercury leaving your income sector on the 14th May and Uranus on the 16th May, the first half of the month is a critical chance to align a lucrative sense of direction with a clear sense of professional direction. Yet the reality is this is something that the professional and money gods have been working towards for the last 12 months, so this is more the tying up of loose ends. This also makes the Moon's visits to your two professional houses a lot more important. The Moon will make just one visit to your work sector, moving through from the 20th May to the 22nd May. As well as sharpening your instincts, fuelling your imagination and delivering some valuable clues, hunches and insights, the Moon will align with both the North Node and Ceres, with a chance to check that you're on track. The Moon will make two visits to your career sector, both important for different reasons. The first visit runs from the 2nd May to the 4th May, with the Moon able to fuel your professional instincts and imagination during Mercury and Uranus' final weeks in your income sector. This will also create some auspicious days across the income, work and career fronts. The Moon will come full circle from the 29th May to the 31st May, this time creating a Full Moon on the 30th May. This is a Full Moon that can bring career and professional matters to fruition or to a head, turning and/or tipping point and even more so this time. With so much invested here over the last three years, there is likely to be plenty of untapped potential for this Full Moon to trigger.
