Monthly Career Horoscopes - May 2021
As Pluto, the only planet in your two professional houses spends his first full month in retrograde motion in your career sector the pace and definitely the urgency has dialled back. Pluto, in your career sector from 2008 to 2024 will always spend from April to September in retrograde motion, giving you a chance to pull back and with continuous planetary activity for so long, retrace your steps. This is the natural point in any year for reviewing the year so far, spending time back at the drawing board, letting things play out but also making sure no stones have been left unturned. This does not mean that things will become stalled and stuck and more that Pluto, the planet of change and revolution is taking a break from shaking things up, leaving you with a more stable platform to work from. While in retrograde motion, Pluto loses his taste for change and revolution and for reinventing the wheel. The Moon will make two visits to your career sector this month, the first from 1st May to 3rd May and then again from 28th May to 30th May. The first visit will come within days of Pluto's retrograde turn late last month but also right in the heart of the most active days of the month on the career front. By the time the Moon comes full circle, Pluto will have been in retrograde motion for a month and will be starting to pick up speed as he travels back over ground already covered. Another important point of the month is when the Moon moves through your work sector from 20th May to 22nd May. This will put the Moon here, giving you an intuitive read on work and job matters as the Sun leaves your income sector on 21st May. As the Moon will also form a friendly aspect to Pluto as it moves through, this will create positive conditions across the income, work and career fronts.
This is a month of two halves on the career front and fortunately, the Moon will not only visit your career sector twice but each during crucial parts. The month begins, as has every other month this year, with Saturn and Jupiter in your career sector, together making this one of the most pivotal professional years in decades. Yet while they both returned within days of each other in December and spent their early days aligned, the much faster Jupiter has been pulling ahead to a point where they are already playing two separate games. However, that still means it is business as usual, with Jupiter urging you to enthusiastically embrace new possibilities while Saturn gives you the determination to do whatever it takes for as long as it takes. However, their days together are numbered, with Jupiter not only leaving your career sector on 14th May but Saturn turning retrograde just eight days later, on 23rd May. Just by Jupiter leaving means that his enthusiastic approach to moving things ahead will end, leaving Saturn's more moderate approach in charge. By the time Jupiter leaves Saturn will be at a near standstill, with his retrograde turn a chance to return to pull back and return to the drawing board. Because Jupiter will return at the end of July to spend another five months here, his focus before leaving is on planting seeds that he can come back and harvest in a few months' time. This is where the timing of the Moon's two visits will help you stay on track. The first visit from 3rd May to 5th May will not only fuel your professional instincts and imagination but will give you a read on both Jupiter and Saturn as it aligns with both. This is when you will sense a need to pull back but also a sense of urgency when it comes to making Jupiter's final days here count. By the time the Moon returns on 30th May Jupiter will be gone and Saturn will have been in retrograde motion for a week, with the Moon giving you a read on the very different dynamics in play by then. The Moon will also give you a chance to check in on work and job matters from 22nd May to 24th May.
From out of the blue, this month reveals not one but two game changers, one on the income and the other on the career front. It should be business as usual across the income, work and career fronts this month, which means no planetary activity on the job front until the second half of the year, none on the income front until next month and Neptune quietly keeping career matters on track. Instead, while there is still no planetary activity on the job front, a Full Moon in the closing days of April has created such a boost that the momentum is still being felt as you move into the new month. At the same time, Mars' return to your income sector on 23rd April has kicked off the most lucrative months of 2021, two months ahead of the Sun's return. However, it is on the career front that the biggest shift is about to happen, with the professional gods preparing to play their most game changing wildcard of the year. The Sun, Mercury and Venus all moved through your career sector in the early months of the year and here from 2012 to 2026, Neptune will usually spend the rest of the year on his own, keeping the wheels turning but focused more on staying on track and keeping the dream alive. That all changes when Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion returns on 14th May. It has been over a decade since Jupiter was last in your career sector and while he will retrograde back out again at the end of July, this is the first of three visits between now and the end of next year. This is the first time that Jupiter and Neptune, the planets of luck and dreams have met up in your career sector in our lifetime and with the help of Mars in your income sector, they are set to breathe new life into this professional year and create a whole new field of possibilities. Jupiter will be here when the Moon comes full circle from last month's Full Moon on the job front, creating what could be some of the best days of the month across the income, work and career fronts from 24th May to 26th May. Meanwhile, the Moon's visit to your career sector from 5th May to 7th May will ensure your professional instincts are sharp when Jupiter returns a week later.
While the Sun's departure from your career sector last month has taken the solar spotlight off your career situation and matters, this was just nine days before you moved into the new month. With Venus and Mercury having just left a few days earlier, an active push has only just run its course and the remaining planets are still regrouping. With the dwarf planet Eris in your career sector all year and both the asteroid Juno and the South Node keeping work and job matters active all year, things will never go off the boil on either front. However, the busy push is over and on both fronts, the focus is shifting to the long game and onto keeping the wheels turning. Or at least it will have by the end of the month, with both sides still having some unfinished business. On the career front, that unfinished business is the dwarf planet Ceres' final days in your career sector, where during her first visit in four years she has been updating your professional needs and priorities since her return in February. Ceres was here, in the background as the Sun, Venus and Mercury moved through, observing and using this to update your professional needs and priorities, which she will continue to do until leaving on 8th May. The Moon will move through from 7th May to 10th May, ensuring your professional instincts are sharp as Ceres leaves but also as the remaining planets settle in for the long haul. This leaves the unfinished business on the job front which is more a real wildcard. With the asteroid Juno in her first full month in retrograde motion in your work sector and the South Node providing a steady drumbeat, all is quiet on the job front and nothing to suggest that the professional gods still have a wildcard up their sleeve. That wildcard will be played when the Moon not only returns to your work sector on 26th May but as a total lunar eclipse. This is a direct result of having the South Node here and after a year this is set to unleash a flood of untapped job potential, potentially in ways that take you by surprise.
The balance of power or the weight of influence has shifted from the job to the career side of the fence but by the end of the month, they will be balanced again and ongoing momentum banked. Since his return to your work sector in 2008, Pluto has spent from April to September in retrograde motion and as he only turned retrograde late last month he is still at a standstill at the start of the month. This is giving you a chance to put more focus on career matters, where there is a chance to set a course for the coming year. The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of May in your career sector, so the focus is always on your career and professional situation, matters and options at this time of year, just as Pluto takes work and job matters into review mode. This year you also begin the month with Venus and Mercury in your career sector and therefore with heart and mind in the game and on the same page. Until he leaves on 4th May, Mercury is giving you the intellectually savvy edge needed to get your head in the game, ideas on the table and the communication lines open. As the planet of money, until she leaves on 9th May, Venus is more focused on fuelling your professional confidence, attracting opportunities and steering things in a lucrative direction. It is during Venus' last full day here that the dwarf planet Ceres will return, beginning a 12 week review of your professional needs and priorities. The Moon will return to your career sector on 10th May, a day after Venus leaves and it is the New Moon this will create on 12th May that will create an opportunity for new beginnings and will give career matters the green light. Things won't go off the boil when the Sun leaves your career sector on 21st May, with Ceres' review of your professional needs and priorities continuing but also with Uranus here from 2019 to 2026 keeping the wheels turning. However, with your annual push over this is when it will become more about the journey, as Pluto is doing on the job front.
The dynamics of this professional year are changing and it will happen in real time over the course of the month. The month begins with Mars having just left your career sector a week earlier, giving things a chance to settle and play out before Mercury returns on 4th May to begin what is usually the first planetary activity on the career front for the year. Instead, with the momentum from the seven weeks that Mars has just spent here, Mercury returns with the intellectually savvy edge needed to take a more practical and strategic approach, ahead of Venus' return on 9th May and the Sun's return on 21st May. Mercury will usually move through your career sector in 14 to 15 days so should be gone by the time the Sun returns but instead, a retrograde turn will keep him here until July. This is a shift from Mars' hot headed enthusiasm on the career front to Mercury's cold headed determination, with Venus returning to fuel your professional confidence, attract opportunities and steer things in a lucrative direction. The Sun will always return to your career sector at the same time each year but will return on 21st May to find that things are already unfolding. Meanwhile, there are even bigger changes on the job front, with Jupiter leaving your work sector on 14th May, less than five months after returning for what is usually a 12 month visit. Jupiter will return at the end of July to harvest the seeds he is planting now, but his departure will see the urgency drop right back. This is partly because with Jupiter gone, Saturn will naturally want to play a more measured game but mainly because his retrograde turn on 23rd May will put the brakes on. This will be a chance to pull back and on the job front, return to the drawing board or just work more quietly behind the scenes while the forward momentum will continue on the career front.
This should be a fairly quiet point in your professional year, with the Sun not due to return to your career sector until later next month and the last of the faster planets having left your work sector two months ago, leaving Neptune on his own to keep the wheels turning. Instead, your professional year is exploding into life in a totally unexpected way and it is happening on the job and career fronts. It began with Mars' return to your career sector on 23rd April, with the warrior planet of the cosmos just completing his first week here in two years as we move into the new month. Mars returned two months ahead of the Sun to fire things up on the career front ahead of schedule. If that was the only development this month this would still be significant, with Mars able to gain some real momentum during the seven weeks he will spend here, which the Sun and faster planets can then capitalise on when they move through. The first sign that this is just the first step in a major reboot will come when the Moon moves through your work sector from 5th May to 7th May. As always, this will give you an intuitive read on work and job matters while an alignment with dreamy Neptune is a chance to check in. This should reveal that it is business as usual on the job front, with the focus on the long game and staying that way for the rest of the year. Instead, this is when your over the horizon radar will pick up on a sense of anticipation while a friendly aspect to Mars will give his early days in your career sector a boost. It is a week after the Moon leaves that everything changes with Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion returning to your work sector on 14th May, for the first time in over a decade. It is one thing to have Mars in your career sector but to have Jupiter in your work sector as well will inject new life into this professional year. This is the first time that Jupiter and Neptune, the planets of luck and dreams have been in your work sector at the same time in our lifetime, with this just the start of a partnership that will extend out to the end of 2022.
The Sun will always leave your work sector three weeks into April and then return to your career sector three weeks into July, with a three month gap between the two. This gives you time to let things play out on the job front while also taking a break before things start heating up on the career front. Instead, you only have this one month to catch your breath. By the time you move into the new month, the Sun has only been gone from your work sector for 10 days and Mercury had left less than 12 hours earlier. Things are still playing out on the job front and until she leaves on 8th May, the dwarf planet Ceres is still updating your needs and priorities. The Moon will make its first visit to your work sector since the Sun left from 7th May to 10th May and this is traditionally the point in each year, when the last of the faster planets have left, that you have a chance to tie up loose ends and set things on course for the coming year. That the Moon is here, giving you an intuitive read on work and job matters as Ceres leaves on 8th May will make these a defining few days on the job front. It is from that point that the dwarf planet Eris will take the wheel, keeping work and job matters and on course but without a need to reinvent the wheel. With the Sun still over two months away from your career sector at this point, there should be no more changes until then. Instead, Mars' return next month will open new doors on the career front much earlier this year and as his first visit in two years, when they start to move they are likely to take off. Mars doesn't return until 12th June, giving you the whole of May to let things settle and play out on the job front before looking at new career opportunities or options. However, the Moon will make its last visit before Mars returns from 18th May to 20th May, fuelling your professional instincts and imagination and bringing clues to what might be around the corner.
Because the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of May in your work sector, the solar spotlight is always on your work situation and job matters at this time of year. This year there is a mix of the expected and the unexpected. There are enough familiar conditions to keep you grounded and on track but enough differences to add some exciting elements. The familiar is that the focus will always be on work and job matters at this time of year and while it was two years since Venus and Mercury were last both here at the same time, having heart and mind in the game and on the same page is an advantage. The unexpected is the seven weeks that Mars has already spent here and the momentum already banked. Also unexpected is the dwarf planet Ceres' return on 8th May, with her first visit in four years a chance to spend the next 12 months updating your needs and priorities on the job front. Especially when it comes to job satisfaction and a sense of purpose. This will continue long after the Sun leaves on 21st May and with Uranus staying on to keep the wheels turning, this is more something that will run in parallel to the push that work and job matters get at this time every year than being part of it. However, Ceres is able to observe, offering a chance to update your needs and priorities on the job front in real time. Mercury is only in your work sector until 4th May, with the very early days of the month the best for working smarter, having your head in the game, ideas on the table and the communication lines open. Until she leaves on 9th May, Venus focus is more on fuelling your job confidence, attracting opportunities and steering things in a lucrative direction. The Sun will keep the solar spotlight on work and job matters until he leaves but it is during the Moon's visit from 10th May to 13th May that work and job matters will get the green light, thanks to a New Moon on 12th May.
Mars departure from your work sector on 23rd April has seen the urgency drop back but gone for just a week you are unlikely to notice a drop in momentum. This was Mars' first visit in two years and he has created enough momentum and motivation to keep the wheels turning for months. However, you no longer constantly need to have your foot on the gas, as things move to a different pace this month. Mercury's return to your work sector on 4th May comes just 11 days after Mars left, with the warrior planet's hot headed enthusiasm replaced by Mercury's more strategic approach. Mercury will normally spend just 14 to 15 days in your work sector each year. This is usually just long enough to draw on his intellectually savvy and articulate edge to work smarter, get your head in the game, ideas on the table and the communication lines open. Mercury should be gone by the time the Sun returns on 21st May, turning the solar spotlight on to your work situation and job matters as he does at this time every year. Instead, a retrograde turn on 30th May will not only keep Mercury here for the rest of the month but until July, giving you months to extract and exploit the benefits from Mars' time here. Venus will return on 9th May to fuel your job confidence, attract opportunities and steer things in a lucrative direction and like the Sun and Mercury, will then spend the rest of the month here. The Moon will make its monthly visit to your work sector from 13th May to 15th May, while Venus and Mercury are helping to put heart and mind in the game and on the same page but before the Sun returns. As always, this will give you an intuitive read on work and job matters and as the first visit since Mars left, could act as a trigger for his untapped potential. Meanwhile, the Moon's visit to your career sector from 22nd May to 24th May will ensure your professional instincts and imagination are fuelled during the Sun's early days in your work sector. The Moon is also here as Saturn turns retrograde in your income sector on 23rd May, creating some significant days across the income, work and career fronts.
There are some exciting developments on the job front this month and the timing gives you the freedom to explore your options. By the time you move into the new month, Mars has only been in your work sector for a week, with this first visit in two years just starting to fire things up on the job front. By the time Mars returned last month there had been no planetary activity on the job front in eight months and none in either of your two professional houses this year. However, it wasn't just Mars' return to your work sector on 23rd April that injected new life into this new professional year but a Full Moon on the career front four days later. The Moon has left your career sector by the time you move into the new month but the momentum this has created will continue to play out until it comes full circle from 24th May to 26th May. This also allows you to begin the month with your professional instincts and imagination fuelled and the Full Moon's friendly aspect to Mars having helped to fire up his work passions, fighting and competitive spirit during his early days in your work sector. With the Sun not returning to your work sector until later next month, Mars is giving you a two month head start and while he will spend the month on his own, the things he sets in motion will have months to play out. With Venus returning to your work sector next month as well and Mercury in July, what is just getting started now will have three months to play out and evolve. Meanwhile, the Moon will make its first and only visit to your work sector while Mars is here from 15th May to 18th May, giving you an intuitive read on work and job matters, of Mars' warrior spirit but also acting as a trigger. The Moon will return a day after Jupiter leaves your income sector on 14th May, forming a friendly aspect to Saturn there as it moves through. These could be some pivotal days on both the income and job fronts.
While it is business as usual in your two professional houses for the majority of the month, things do start to come alive towards the end of the month in a way that will have both immediate and long term implications. To start with, business as usual means no planetary activity on the job front, as you would expect at this time of year while the asteroid Juno and the South Node are keeping things on track on the career front. However, with Juno in her first full month in retrograde motion, there is little urgency on the career front and instead a chance to pull back. The Moon has just left your career sector as you move into the new month, allowing you to begin the month with your professional instincts and imagination fuelled from the start. The first sign of change will come when the Moon returns to your work sector from 18th May to 20th May. At the time there is nothing out of the ordinary about this monthly visit, giving you an intuitive read on work and job matters but also creating positive conditions across the income, work and career fronts. It is more the sense of anticipation this is likely to leave you with which, with the Sun still two months away shouldn't be there. Instead, what your instincts will be picking up on is Mars approach, with this last visit before the warrior planet of the cosmos returns on 12th June the first sign of change ahead on the job front. However, before then the professional gods have a wildcard to play and with Mars returning to open new doors on the job front next month, this could play into that. That wildcard is the Moon's return to your career sector from 26th May to 28th May, returning as it does every four weeks to fuel your professional instincts and imagination and offer a chance to check in. However, the total lunar eclipse this will create on 26th May could blow the lid off the untapped professional potential that has been building behind the scenes all year.
