May 2020

There are a number of different themes in play this month, along with a number of planets turning retrograde and some significant shifts. Two of those planets turning retrograde are Pluto, who turned retrograde in Capricorn late last month and Jupiter, who will turn retrograde here on 15th May. This will contribute to a drop in urgency that will also be felt right across the income, work and career fronts. With Saturn turning retrograde in your income sector on 11th May, Venus in your work sector on 13th May and Juno in retrograde motion in your career sector until 27th May, this will see the doors open to the past, second chances and untapped potential across all three fronts. Yet with Mars continuing to drive things forward on the income front until he leaves on 13th May, the North Node returning to your work sector on 5th May, Mercury on 12th May and the Sun on 21st May, there will still be forward movement on the income and job fronts. However, with so much interplay and things playing out for several months to come, a drop in urgency on the personal front will be mirrored across the income, work and career fronts as well. At a time when we are starting to look at what we want a post Covid 19 world to look like, this is a valuable chance to push the 'reset' button. In the meantime, three events signal good news for your relationships. The first is the North Node's departure from your relationship sector on 5th May and the South Node's departure from Capricorn at the same moment. This ends a policing of a balance between your personal and relationship needs that began in November 2018, taking the pressure off you and your relationships. The second event is Mars' return to your communication sector on 13th May followed by Mercury, the planet of communication's return to your communication sector on 29th May. While the lunar nodes will leave you with a better sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you, first the pressure will drop back and then the communication support will arrive.


Week beginning Monday 25th of May 2020

The week gets off to a stunning start in two very different areas of your life and that will help to create a sense that things are falling into place. One of those areas is on the professional front, with the Moon not only beginning the week in your work sector but wrapping up a New Moon over the weekend. Falling during the Sun's early days here and with Mercury leaving on Friday, as well as starting the week with an intuitive read on work and job matters, this comes just as they have received the green light. However, this also comes at a time when the doors are open to the past, second chances and untapped potential across the income, work and career fronts. The other area that is not only well aspected at the start of the week but will become increasingly favoured as the week progresses is on the communication and relationship fronts. This is creating positive conditions for your personal and professional relationships.


Wednesday 27th of May 2020

While Venus will remain in retrograde motion in your work sector for another four weeks and Saturn in your income sector for another five weeks, the tide turns on the career front today. Planets across the income, work and career fronts continue to act as a tight unit but a friendly aspect between the Sun, in his first full week in your work sector and Juno, as she turns direct in your career sector today will give both job and career matters the green light.

About Capricorn

Information about your birth sign


Capricorn is the tenth sign of the zodiac, ruled by the planet Saturn. The planet that has the pretty coloured rings around it!

Yours is a feminine sign but before anyone expects you to be soft or fluffy, they should know that you're a determined and capable cardinal sign. You don't mind taking orders but with your considerable ambition, you're more likely to be the one giving them.

The rings around planet Saturn symbolise boundaries and you are sure to come up against one or two of these in your lifetime. You have strong personal boundaries too, as you're naturally cautious and you like to get to know people before you allow them to get too close.

The symbol for Capricorn is the goat. Some lucky goats live wild on the mountainside, able to slowly climb ever upwards to the summit. The view from the top of the mountain is something every pioneering goat wants to experience.

Other goats are confined to farmland, or tied to ropes to stop them wandering, but they seem to happily accept these boundaries and continue to graze on the grass and produce nourishing milk. Whether you get to the top of your field or not, you'll always be productive!

In myth, Saturn was the Roman God of agriculture and he ruled over the grain and harvest. Another of Saturn's many faces is Old Father Time. You like to do things at your own pace, or in your own time. Although you appear to have a strange relationship to time, you can live it backwards!

In youth, you're often the quiet child with the old wise head on young shoulders and you're able to behave with incredible restraint and maturity. Then you reach old age and suddenly you do a complete turn around and you're able to be playful, childlike and uninhibited. You're able to take the insecurities of your childhood and work on them until they become your strengths in the future.

We might find you working in a government office or on a building site, where you'll probably be in charge, or we might find you at home caring expertly for your family. Capricorn is on the parental axis of the horoscope, like your opposite sign Cancer, you're one of the caretakers of the zodiac. You're excellent parent material, and because you do genuinely care about others, you'll readily offer support to your friends and workmates too.

Some say that you're like a fine wine that matures beautifully with age. You get along best with the other earth signs, Taurus and Virgo, and also with the water signs Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces.

Saturn moves slowly through the signs, taking 29 years to complete one round of the zodiac. It's position in your horoscope adds another layer to your intricate personality. If you'd like to know more, one of our astrologers will be happy to take your call.
