Your May Horoscope: Let Love Lead
Capricorn, the pandemic pause getting you down? Do try to enjoy the lull rather than fight it, Cap. May is a welcome reprieve from the intensity of the past few months. While states and countries are gradually opening up again, there is no need to rush back into life BC, before Corona. This month, three planets turn retrograde; the universe is insisting we still take it slowly. When planets move retrograde, there is a shift of energy, and it becomes a more introspective time. Use it wisely. Sort through all that has occurred with mindful attention. There are like a zillion online apps, yogis, and happiness gurus to help guide your way. You'll be able to soar forward again soon. Venus, the planet of love, beauty, and finances, goes retrograde from May 13th to June 25th in the sign of Gemini. Venus returns to the same spot every eight years. So, think back to 2012; old themes related to Venusian energy may surface. Now that you're older and wiser, you can welcome and deal with them on your terms. As Venus retrogrades through your 6th house, you are encouraged to review relationships with work, daily routines, and self-care. Former bosses, colleagues, friends, or loves may reappear during this time. This pause allows you to dive deeply inward, something that you may not have had time before the pandemic. Gemini is the sign of communication. Cap, this is also a time to reflect and enhance your interpersonal relation skills. You know there are apps and gurus for that too. Go check them out. The difficulty with this Venus retrograde is that planet Neptune is blurring the picture. Neptune and Venus come at odds. Though Neptune deals with illusion and mysticism, he can be deceptive and elusive. Be patient Cap, you are going to have to shift through what is true and what is not. I know this won't be an easy task as you are the most straightforward, no-nonsense sign of the zodiac. The fog will clear at the end of July; please do try not to make any significant decisions in love and work until then. Cheers to a calmer and more relaxed May, Cap.
