Welcome to May, Capricorn! Last month you reconnected with friends. You work hard, Capricorn, but you must make time for play, too. If it’s any motivator, taking time for yourself helps you become more productive in the long run. When messenger planet Mercury enters charismatic Gemini and your 6th House of Health on Monday, May 3, try to take time to step back and assess whether your career is affecting your mental health. Are you overworked or spread too thin? Stressed about money? It’s hard, but do what you can to find a work and life balance, dear Capricorn. Otherwise, you risk burnout, which puts strain on your health and relationships.
Venus, the planet of romance, also enters Gemini and your 6th House of Health on Saturday, May 8. This transit asks you to check in on your romantic relationships. Are you giving your crush or lover enough love and attention? Even when you’re deeply in love, you have a tendency to pour your whole being into your career and assume that your partner will always be there for you, but relationships require work, too. Make time to plan a date night, buy your partner flowers, or remind them how important they are to you.
A new moon in sensual Taurus and your 5th House of Pleasure on Tuesday, May 11, brings orgasms and joy. If you’re in a relationship, you may find yourself rewarded for your expressions of love. If you’re single, bring out the sex toys. Perhaps it’s even time to get back on dating apps.
Prosperous planet Jupiter enters Pisces and your 3rd House of Communication on Thursday, May 13. This transit is all about turning dreams into reality. Following themes from earlier in this month, you are asked to verbally express your emotions. Sometimes, even when your heart is bursting with love, it can be hard for you to put feelings into words. This cosmic shift helps you vocalize your romantic desires. If you want to make a relationship official or take things to the next level, now is the time to do so.
Last month you may have started to see friends as the vaccine has started to get more readily available, and your social life now gets even busier when chatty Gemini season begins on Thursday, May 20. Shortly after, your ruling planet, responsible Saturn, goes retrograde from Sunday, May 23 to Sunday, October 10. This transit asks you to set boundaries, Capricorn. Because of the change in seasons and the vaccine rollout, this means finding your comfort level around making IRL plans. It also reminds you about the need to find work and life balance from earlier in the month. Every minute on this earth is precious, and you don’t want to spend it all working yourself into the ground.
