Monthly Career Horoscopes - May 2019
Things take a quieter turn professionally this month, but for all the right reasons and with a valuable chance to regroup. When you have planets in your career sector for years, which you do, there is a need to be on your game all 365 days of the year and that can't all be spent in the fast lane. Pluto, since his return to your career sector in 2008 has spent from April to September in retrograde motion and Saturn, here since December 2017, is doing the same. Both turned retrograde in the final days of April and in Saturn's case in the final hours, so this is something you are still adjusting to. The month begins with both at a standstill but they will start to inch back over the course of the month. Over the coming months that trek back over old ground will become more active, but for now there is time to adjust to this new shift in focus. With new developments and some busy months on the job front not kicking off until the second half of the year, you can afford to pull back and in fact, this is your first chance this year. The Moon will make its first visit to your career sector since Saturn and Pluto's retrograde turn from 21st May to 24th May. By then it will have been nearly four weeks since Pluto and Saturn turned retrograde, with a valuable chance by then to regroup. With no planetary activity in your work sector, the Moon's visit from 13th May to 15th May is a valuable chance to regroup. As well as an intuitive read on work and job matters, this is right in the heart of what will be an empowered part of the month for income matters. As well as giving you an intuitive read on work and job matters in the heart of potentially lucrative weeks, a friendly alliance can boost both your income and job confidence. With no planets on the job front, the Moon can act as a trigger for anything at a tipping point.
While there is no planetary activity in either of your two professional houses there are plenty of undercurrents, which the Moon is able to tap into and exploit during its monthly visits to both. The Moon's return to your work sector from 15th May to 17th May is not only timely but potentially triggering a significant few days on the job front. For the first time since February, the Moon will return without creating a Full Moon. Yet the Moon is not only coming full circle from last month's Full Moon but everything that has been building from a Full Moon four weeks earlier. For the first time in 58 years, you have had two back to back Full Moons in your work sector, with the Moon's visit this month a chance to tie everything together. What makes the timing of this visit auspicious is that this could see a lot of things come together on the job front, just as Mars is preparing to leave your income sector on 16th May. With the Moon in your work sector from 15th May to 17th May, Mars will leave in the heart of this, creating the potential for some exciting days across the income and job fronts. With no planetary activity in your work sector until the second half of the year, this is the point where you are able to reflect on where you've been and on where to from here. The Moon's return to your career sector from 24th May to 26th is just as important and timely, though for different reasons. The last planet only left your career sector at the end of March and as this is just the Moon's second visit since then, here you are able to look back on what has already been invested and has since taken on a life of its own. As the Moon moves through, this will fuel your professional instincts and imagination and with it bring a chance to check in. While the last planet left you with a sense of professional direction, as your professional year evolves so too will the roadmap, with a valuable chance to check in. This will put the Moon here during the Sun and Mercury's early days in your income sector.
While things aren't as quiet professionally as they might seem at first glance, this is an important month to regroup and confirm your professional game moving forward. While the Sun left your career sector in March, held back by a retrograde phase last year Venus was late to arrive and therefore late to leave, while Mercury spent much of March in retrograde motion here, so was late to leave as well. Mercury finally left just before Easter and Venus just days later, a month to the day after the Sun left. By the time you move into the new month, it was just 10 days ago that Venus left, so this is still early days. You begin the month with the Moon here and while it will leave on 1st May, the job of tying up loose ends and defining where to from here has just begun. While the faster planets have now been and gone but with Neptune here all year and right through to 2026, things will never go completely off the boil. Chiron's departure in February means that for the first time since his return in 2012 Neptune is on his own and for the planet of dreams this is important. No longer forced to confront old professional ghosts or demons, Neptune is taking the last four months and is using it as the platform for the rest of this professional year. The Moon will come full circle from 26th May to 29th May, with a chance to once again check in. Meanwhile, it is the Moon's visit to your work sector from 17th May to 19th May that has the potential to be extremely exciting because of the timing, for what it will trigger and the history here. While Jupiter left your work sector in November after 13 months here there is still a huge amount of momentum and untapped job potential, which the Moon always brings a chance to tap into. Yet the Full Moon this will create on 19th May, the first since Jupiter left could trigger significant and unexpected developments on the job front. Why the timing is auspicious is because just three days earlier, Mars returns to your income sector on 16th May.
While the Sun left your career sector over Easter and the solar spotlight is no longer on your career and professional situation, matters and options, with Venus and Mercury still here things are still unfolding. Both were held back by retrograde phases, Venus last year and Mercury in March, meaning they were late to return to your career sector this year and therefore are late to leave. Usually moving through with the Sun, the majority of their visits are playing out after the Sun has passed through. This has allowed the Sun to get all your options out in the open, then giving you time afterwards to explore and exploit those options. Mercury is here until 7th May, making the first week of May the best for having your head in the game, ideas on the table and the communication lines open. This is a good time for talks, communication or anything that requires an intellectually savvy edge and articulation. Venus is here until 15th May, giving her more time to fuel your professional confidence, attract opportunities and steer things in a lucrative direction. As was the case when the Sun and before him Mars moved through your career sector, for the first time in 12 years, it was to find Jupiter in your work sector. Now in his first full month in retrograde motion, Jupiter is pulling back and that same push is no longer required. Yet there is still a lot of support between forces on the job and career fronts. That will continue even after Mercury and Venus leave, with a long term presence on the career front. Yet with Jupiter in retrograde motion, there are calls to pull back and if you don't pace yourself you may find that there is work tension and job pressure at times. However, you will feel more energised once Mars returns to Cancer on 16th May. This is a month for knowing when to keep your work hat on and when to take it off.
You have not only reached an important month on both the job and career fronts but where there is a chance for one to carry the load for the other. For the first time this year, a relentless drive forward on the job front and a pace that may have left little time to take your work hat off, dials back this month. It was in the final days of April that Pluto and Saturn both turned retrograde in your work sector, Saturn in the final hours of the month. The first day of May is Saturn's first full day in retrograde motion, with the brakes on work and job matters. This will eventually ease off and over the course of the month Saturn and Pluto will slowly start to move back, but in retrograde motion for five months and at a standstill in the early part of the month, this is a chance to catch your breath. This is where the planetary activity in your career sector comes to the rescue, with the pace picking up on the career front just as it is dropping back on the job front. Where your work sector is focused on the day to day grind, putting in the work and effort needed to get things done, your career sector looks to the bigger picture, providing an outline or guideline. As the pace pulls back on the job front and the Sun in your career sector until 21st May, this is a chance to use that easing back of work and job matters to spend time looking towards the future professionally. With Mercury here from 7th May to 21st May, there is a short 14 day window where you are able to get your head in the game, ideas on the table and the communication lines open. This two week period is ideal for resetting your professional game plan and resolutions for the coming year. Yet until Venus returns on 15th May, your heart has yet to have its say. However, even then Venus is more focused on fuelling your professional confidence and attracting opportunities.
While the Sun's return to your career sector on 21st May will always turn the solar spotlight onto your career and professional situation, matters and options at this time every year, this is usually your first look at your overall professional game for the year. Unlike your work sector, which was active during the first three months of the year and was a busy time, your career sector looks to the big picture, with the planets moving through more focused on creating guidelines. If your professional year was a playing or battlefield, then your career sector defines where the lines are drawn and what you're playing for. Your work sector defines the point where you're on the field, playing the game. That busy phase ended when Venus left at the end of March, with the first three months of 2019 a flow on from a busy end to 2018. Mars, who normally spends just six weeks in your work sector every other year, spent months here last year, divided over two visits. By the time the Sun, Mercury and Venus moved through in the first three months of this year, things had already been busy for a long time. That phase is over, but you begin the month with Mars now in your career sector, where he has been since mid March. Here Mars has a much wider scope, as he fires up your professional passions, fighting and competitive spirit, with a chance to take your professional power back. Not leaving until 16th May, Mars still has time to make his final weeks count. Knowing that the Sun and Mercury will both return to your career sector on 21st May, Mars knows he doesn't have to finish what he starts or waste time figuring out the 'when, where and how'. This leaves you free to simply follow and embrace the things that excite you.
There is a chance to catch your breath this month, though the danger lies in not appreciating what a short window of opportunity this is. By the time you move into the new month it has been just 10 days since Venus left your work sector, the last in a parade of planets that has kept things busy over recent months. As the last to arrive and therefore the last to leave, Venus had a chance to finish this busy and active phase with her focus on fuelling your job confidence, attracting opportunities and steering things in a lucrative direction. Knowing that it is dreamy Neptune that will keep the wheels moving, Venus was able to give your heart a voice. You begin the month with the Moon in your work sector and while it will leave on 1st May, you are literally still tying up loose ends in the early hours of the month. With Neptune not only in your work sector all year but until 2026, there is no fear of work and job matters going off the boil, but he is playing a long and a slow game. With the Sun not returning to your career sector until 22nd June, there is every reason to assume that you can spend the whole of May and the first three weeks of next month letting things settle. You do have a chance to catch your breath in the early part of the month, but not for as long as you might assume you have. Yes, the Sun won't return until later next month and this will be the catalyst for a total solar eclipse here in early July. However, Mars' return to your career sector on 16th May will fire things up professionally and it will stay that way through the middle months of 2019. The Moon will move through your career sector from 8th May to 11th May and leaving just five days before Mars returns, you should be able to pick up clues to what is approaching.
That there is still an active phase underway on the job front is a fortuitous coincidence, one that gives you additional time to exploit potential. The Sun left your work sector over Easter, taking the solar spotlight off your work situation and job matters, as it does at that time every year. It is less that the Sun leaves your work sector over Easter each year because he doesn't and more because Easter was late this year. Yet events in other times and other places has given you bonus time this year. Held back by a retrograde phase last year, Venus was late to return to your work sector and is therefore late to leave, not leaving until 15th May. Held back by a retrograde phase in March Mercury was also late to arrive and therefore late to leave, not leaving until 7th May. This means you start the month with Mercury and Venus still here, heart and head in the game and still able to exploit the potential created over recent months. A lot has unfolded so far this year, so much so that Venus and Mercury are able to exploit the potential. The Moon will return on 1st May for what is the only visit while Venus and Mercury are here. Coming full circle from last month's New Moon this always had the potential to trigger unexpected developments, which Venus and Mercury are here to help you exploit. While the pace will drop back once Venus and Mercury leave, your work sector is an area of your chart where things never completely go off the boil. For unlike your career sector, which has no planetary activity until the first planet arrives for the year later next month, things here will move onto more a slow boil. The Moon will return with a chance to check in from 29th May to 31st May. You will have a chance to do the same on the career front, from 11th May to 13th May. These could be some auspicious days across the income, work and career fronts.
May is often a busy month for you, with the Sun always spending the first three weeks in your work sector. However, the nearly seven weeks Mars had spent here until leaving in the final hours of March has changed your definition of the word busy. Compared to having no planetary activity in your work sector, then the Sun's return each year does usher in a busy phase. However, considering how busy things have been over recent months, this is a step down. Yet while the pace isn't as manic the implications are stunning, with the Sun aligning with Uranus here for the first time in eight decades. Uranus returned in May 2018, but during the Sun's final days and when he was too far ahead to even be aware of this. Uranus left a few months later, but the planet of surprise, synchronicity and the unexpected returned in March and is here now for the next seven years. Just days after returning last month the Sun aligned with Uranus here for the first time in eight decades, as will Mercury when returns on 7th May and Venus on 15th May. The Sun will always shine the solar spotlight on your work situation and job matters during the first three weeks of May, in a way that looks at 'what is'. However, Uranus looks beyond 'what is' and by looking outside the square can bring whole new ways of looking at things. While the Sun, Mercury and Venus are just passing through, with Uranus here until 2026 this also means that whatever you start will continue to have ongoing support. It is the Moon's visit from 4th May to 6th May that will create a New Moon on 5th May. However, with Venus and Mercury not here by then and heart and head not yet in the game, whatever this triggers might take time to evolve or fully reveal itself. It is still a time for new beginnings or to draw a new line in the sand.
No matter what and no matter how slow your professional year has been to get off the ground, the one thing that you can count on is that work and job matters will gain momentum in the latter part of May. That is because the Sun's return to your work sector on 21st May is something that happens at this time every year, turning the solar spotlight onto your work situation, job matters and options. Often this is the first planetary activity in either of your two professional houses for the year and your first chance to explore new options. While the Sun will return to your work sector on 21st May it will be to find that new paths and trails have already been forged and there is likely to be a considerable amount of movement on the job front. This is thanks to Mars' return at the end of March and his position here until 16th May. The fact that Mars will leave just five days before both the Sun and Mercury return on 21st May means they will benefit from the traction he has already created, while he is free to leave things unfinished. Mars has a reputation for starting things but not finishing them and if have found yourself enthusiastic about something in the past but then lack the motivation to bring it home, often you find that Mars was there at the creation, but didn't stick around. However, it is not Mars' job to bring things home and here you have the perfect makeup, with the Sun and Mercury returning to finish what he starts. This means that while Mars is here you can throw yourself into the things that excite you, following where his work passions, fighting and competitive spirit draw you. The Moon will make its last visit before Mars leaves from 6th May to 8th May. This will give you a better read on how to make Mars' final days count. It is during Mars' last full day that the Moon will return to your career sector, coming full circle from not only last month's Full Moon but a Full Moon four weeks earlier. This could see a lot of action on the job and career fronts on and around 15th and 16th May.
This is one month where you can't judge a book by its cover, especially when that covers suggests there is nothing to see here and that on both the job and career fronts it is business as usual. On the career front, business as usual means nothing is happening, with no planetary activity here until later in the year and only the Moon's monthly visits keeping things on track. However, Venus only left your career sector January and with Jupiter having just left in November, the Moon does bring a chance to tap back into that. While you have had the North Node in your work sector since November, with the Sun not returning until 21st June its focus is more about steering things in the right direction. The asteroid Juno did return last month, but while there might be a new sense of conviction and resolve developing on the job front, she doesn't have the weight to shift things. Therefore if first impressions suggest a quiet and ordinary month on both the job and career fronts, prepare to have those assumptions shattered. For the reality is that you have reached a turning point in this professional year, though you will have to wait until mid month. The shift happens within a three day period from 16th May to 19th May. It begins with Mars' return to your work sector on 16th May, firing things up on the job front over a month before the Sun returns, but in the process beginning the seven week lead up to a game changing total solar eclipse. It is during Mars' first full day in your work sector that the Moon will return to your career sector, fuelling your professional instincts and imagination as he returns to fire things up on the job front. However, this is no ordinary visit, with a Full Moon in your career sector on 19th May creating the potential to fire things up on both the job and career fronts.
Things do quieten down professionally this month and for good reason, with a valuable chance to catch your breath and let things settle before a busy new phase begins later next month. With Jupiter in your career sector from November 2018 to December 2019, this is an important professional year, with a period of professional growth and expansion continuing throughout the 13 months that Jupiter is here. However, Jupiter is not spending the whole 13 months in forward motion and spending the middle four months in retrograde motion, this is a chance to pull back. This is the first full month of this four month review phase and until Jupiter turns direct in August, there is a chance to pull back, retrace your steps and in general take a break from moving forward. Think of it like anything you might create, in that you put in a lot of work and effort, but there comes a time when you need to stand back and reassess things. This is the time to reflect back, return to finish something started, change other things or even just take a break yourself. While a busy new period will begin on the job front until next month, this doesn't begin until the end of June and will be in full swing throughout July and August. It is when that full swing is underway that Jupiter will turn direct in August, using this to slingshot his way into his final months in your career sector, which is when everything will come together. Because of what is set to evolve on the job and career fronts over the coming months, the Moon's visits to your two professional houses this month are important. The first will be a visit to your work sector from 11th May to 13th May. This isn't the last visit before new developments on the job front so is more a chance to get an intuitive read on work and job matters now. The Moon's visit to your career sector from 19th May to 21st May, as well as a chance to fuel your professional instincts and imagination, is a chance to check in with Jupiter and his review phase.
