Key Themes: feeling safe within your body, letting go of the ones that are leading you astray, deepening the relationships that feel right, play and experimentation
Dear Capricorn, this is a year of transition, with the eclipses having shifted signs, and Pluto going in and out of Aquarius until it finally settles there for the next 20 years at the beginning for 2024. The month of May begins with Pluto going retrograde on the 1st for the next 5 months, where it will begin to make its way back into your sign. Before it moves back into your sign of the sea goat for the last time in our lifetime, reflect on how your approach to safety, security and your financial world is shifting. Work on identifying and letting go of the habits and limiting beliefs that may be blocking your abundance.
We are in the midst of eclipse season, with the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio happening on May 5th in your area of friendships and community, transforming it. How are your interpersonal dynamics shifting? What relationships and dynamics are you realizing no longer work for you? It’s time to say no to what drains you. It’s ok to create the distance needed from certain groups and people in order to reconnect with your power and your needs, and to find balance.
Venus has been in the sign of play, communication and interconnection for the past 4 weeks, and on May 7th it will shift into the nurturing sign of Cancer, where it’ll have us yearning for the people and the places that feel like home for the following 4 weeks. Happening in your area of partnerships, it’ll be hard for you not to give into vulnerability. This is a time to let down your guard with the ones you trust and love. Soften up. Surrender to the tenderness and nurture you yearn for within your intimate relationships with lovers, besties and/or collaborators.
Mercury will finally go direct on the 14th, after taking you through a review during the past 3 weeks of your ability to create without a goal in mind. Now as it goes direct in the sign of Taurus, you’re being invited to have the experience instead of reading or hearing about it from somebody else. Activate your senses. Use your creativity. Indulge in erotic experimentation. Find out what you can learn about and through your pleasure. Switch things up, you don’t always have to like the same things. What are you feeling attracted to lately?
Jupiter, the planet of abundance, is entering Taurus, the sign of earthly pleasure, on the 16th, and the first thing it does once it gets there is have a tense meet up with Pluto in Aquarius. This transit will serve as a reminder that our lack of wealth has nothing to do with us personally. It’s past time we stop buying to the manifestation discourse. It’s past time we realize that we’re living in a system that’s rigged to make it impossible for all to succeed or even make a dignified living. So know that your worth has absolutely nothing to do with your financial sustenance or your social status. You are worthy just as you are, dear Capricorn.
For you, this year to come will be all about having good times. But this requires you to let loose, are you up for it Capricorn? It requires that you allow yourself to play. Practice connecting with your inner child, listen to them, indulge their desires. The creative in you is dying to come out. Think less, and let your impulsive side come through. Play can be sacred if you allow it to be.
On the 20th, the Sun moves out of Taurus making way for Gemini Season. This is the season that reminds us of the power of our words and our interactions. So don’t underestimate what you communicate, to others and also to yourself. Your rituals and routines will come to focus. You’ll feel the need to get organized within the more mundane details of your life, especially with everything you put into your career. It’s a nice time to find a balance, and to get in touch with the goals you desire for your personal life, especially regarding your health.
