Love is coming, Capricorn, ready or not! You’ve been in a quiet space but in May your social scene opens up so much that I am gasping. You exit what’s been holding you back. In the middle of all your crazy work, you grow from caterpillar to beautiful butterfly. You fall deeply in love! You fulfill your potential.
The great writer Anais Nin, with her Moon in Capricorn, wrote:
And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.
So be brave. Blossom. Go forward with that new creative venture. Allow yourself to love wholeheartedly, as if you had all the time in the world.
Love – and your returned passion and sexuality – are big themes of May. In your fifth house of romance and fun you have:
The life-saving Sun
Planet of unexpected surprises Uranus
A very different New Taurus Moon on Saturday, May 4
Clever planet of thought Mercury as of Monday, May 6
Planet of love and beauty Venus as of Wednesday, May 15
Your fifth house, traditionally ruled by confident Leo, rules:
Conception – of a baby, an idea, business plan, masterpiece
Your own inner child
Feeling beautiful or handsome
Creative Capricorns, get recording – write down everything, all your ideas!
I wouldn’t be surprised to hear from you that you have met your soul mate this May. And not at all surprised that – for once! – you don’t have any objections. It’s easier than it’s been in a long time.
Overall it’s a very satisfying time. You move forward, energetically and joyfully again, and you lay claim to what you’ve worked towards for so long.
You become a LOVER again. And it feels good. It is strong and positive. And just what you deserve.
I’m going to tell you straight, Capricorn. The long cold winter of hardship is over and it is time to birth and blossom again. (Yes, you are going to do more than survive. You are going to thrive.)
Remember to look up at the night sky on Saturday, May 18, and you will see a violently beautiful full Scorpio Moon in your eleventh house of friends and professional colleagues. You have attained so much here, and the full Moon gives you even more opportunities to shine in these areas.
Make sure you get out there now — to events, to parties — because you make a splash and it is good for your career.
Let judgement GO. As you judge yourself, you judge others, and vice versa.
I say this because I care, and I know how much you suffer. (More than any other sign in the zodiac.)
It is time, dear Capricorn, to let yourself relax in your life. You have been holding up so much of yourself — including your work, your achievements — to such exquisitely high standards for so long.
This is no longer good for you. And it certainly isn’t necessary anymore. The winter is over and there are no more icy mountains to climb. You have proved yourself many times over! And now it is almost summer!
The ground is solid beneath you, and you are going to move around a little, and be open to new experiences and places.
The success you have attained, the wolf you kept from the door — you were scared you would lose your home! — the fine reputation in your field that you have — all of these are now secure. Secure enough that you can start to question the meaning of your life.
Remember, the original symbol for Capricorn was a goat with a mermaid’s tail. You have a deep, mystical, intuitive, magical nature. More than astrologers say for you — “practical”, “ambitious”, “driven”, you have this deeply philosophical side which must be acknowledged.
And you can relax enough to acknowledge it now. Your life is — relatively — plush enough that you can afford to question.
In fact, May is all about enjoying yourself with people and about getting creative like this. And, about pure love! So carpe diem!
Attached Capricorn, you grow closer to your mate and even more committed. Single Capricorn, you could meet your soul mate during this time! Even before, under the new Moon on Saturday, May 4. You will certainly be adored and asked out…
And you will do everything right. Success!
The final area to be considered? Your look, your image. This is the “branding” of yourself. It may seem at odds with the more internal, deep world you’re going to be in, but it’s really not — at all. Your ruler wise Saturn goes retrograde Monday, April 29, joining an already retrograde Pluto in your first house. Thus you will call up images from your past, and incorporate one or more beautifully into a current look.
What you will fill up on this May (the areas ruled by the first house):
Your behavior with others
How you project your identity
How you come across
Taking yourself seriously
Seeing yourself as a special person
Fulfilling these areas for yourself adds to your success and your career takes off to a new level. It is also fun and good for yourself, and makes going out to events all that more pleasurable.
You will shine!
Life is death and rebirth. Fly, butterfly, fly! Let the caterpillar die, so you can be reborn into your new form of life. Beautiful butterfly.
You truly know the meaning of sacrifice. Sometimes it feels as if you give and give, and believe and believe, and it’s all going into a void somewhere in space.
What do you get in return?
This May, you undergo a powerful shift in your experience of giving.
This past year has been a chaotic blur. You haven’t even had time to process what’s been going on. Now you are given, as if a gift from the universe, a clarity that has been obscured for some time.
I end with another brilliant writer who was born with Mars in Capricorn, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe:
When you don’t have this dying and becoming you are only a sad guest on this earth.
Sad guest no more, beautiful lover.
Spring is here, Capricorn!
