Monthly Horoscope Capricorn May 2018
Written by Kurt Franz
May – A time to be diplomatic
The sun will still be in a highly favorable trine position in Taurus, so Capricorns can continue to expect strong vitality and plenty of energy. These positive and sunny days will last through May 21st when the sun will enter the sign Gemini. This will form a quincunx aspect, which will encourage Capricorns to consider whether it’s time to make changes in certain areas of their lives. If so, they should take any steps that need to be taken.
Mercury will remain in a square position through May 13th, which indicates less than optimal conditions in your professional life and communications. You’ll have to continue working very hard to achieve good results. Things will change after May 13th as Mercury enters Taurus and forms a highly favorable trine. After this point your professional work will be highly favored, and tough intellectual work will be under Mercury’s good influence. This means good results will flow much more easily than ever before.
Addressing and Working Through Problems
Venus will be in Gemini and will form a quincunx aspect similar to the sun itself. This aspect will encourage you to consider whether there is anything bothering you about any of your relationships and, if so, to talk about it. These will typically be minor issues that can be cleared up easily through communication. You just have to take the first step. After May 19th Venus will enter the opposing sign Cancer to take on an oppositional position, as it does once each year. As the word “opposition” makes clear, you might have a tough time getting other people to see your point of view during this time, and you might even find yourself at odds with your partner. Minor irritations might crop up, minor disadvantages might affect your life, and you might see some misunderstandings in your family and friendships. If you know how to be diplomatic, you should try to use this skill. This period won’t last forever, but rather only through June 12th, after which everything will change again for the better.
Mars will be in Aquarius throughout the month, forming a secondary semi-sextile aspect. That means you can continue to expect only modest energy from Mars. This will, however, be plenty of energy to satisfactorily handle your workload.
Using Helpful Contacts
The lucky planet Jupiter will be forming a positive sextile through November 8th, so get excited about that. Sometimes you really can make progress without too much effort. However, in the long term it’s better to utilize all the skills you possess. Your relationships with other people will generally be good, even with people who have influence and could help you out during this time. You’ll be enthusiastic and optimistic, which will be contagious and could bring you luck. Thinking about religion and philosophy will lead to long-term fulfillment. It’s also a good time to learn about legal, medical, or educational subjects. If you work hard to achieve these high intellectual ideals, your worldly cares and financial problems will take care of themselves.
Saturn, the planet of restrictions, delays, and obstructions entered Capricon on December 20th, 2017 and will stay there for quite a while - all the way through mid-December 2020. Saturn will have an inhibiting effect on your interests and your personal ambition, which might feel very frustrating. You work and work and still can’t get ahead. That can really be demoralizing. Of course, as we all know Saturn is apt to throw obstacles in our paths. So don’t let it get you down – you’ll still have great opportunities from Jupiter. But even if you’re feeling disappointed you didn’t achieve anything for all your efforts, don’t stop working hard. If you do, you’ll miss the opportunities Jupiter provides. This is what Capricorns need to focus on in the near future. Just don’t give up, and try to take advantage of the opportunities that come your way. What would Cicero say? - The bigger the hardship, the greater the victory! Bullseye.
