Monthly Business Horoscopes - May 2013
With Pluto spending his first full month in retrograde motion in your career sector this creates a fairly low key professional month, yet one where you will need to keep your eyes open. There is just the right mix of pressure and support to ensure that you don't fall asleep at the wheel, which is a real danger in Pluto's early weeks in retrograde motion. The support is coming from the forces in play on the income front and as they themselves come under pressure this will create a sense of solidarity between income and professional forces. It's when you've got your income and professional objectives on the same page that you'll feel most empowered, most able to focus on the big picture and able to turn pressure into motivation. Pluto is coming under pressure from two sources, both working to keep you on your toes. One is a more general sense of pressure that you're probably unable to put your fingers on with Uranus, in your sign and Pluto, in your career sector pushing each other's buttons. Yet each are able to keep the other honest, Uranus making sure you're not asleep at the wheel professionally and Pluto making sure this isn't at the expense of personal authenticity. The kind of pressure you will be able to put your finger on is the start of some work/life balance tension, which needs to be taken seriously. In the meantime, the Moon's visit to your work sector from the 18th May to the 21st May will lift the curtain on work matters, with your professional instincts sharpest in the earlier and later days of the month.
While you have a fairly low key month on the professional front it's just as well, for with things starting to move on the income front this month this gives you a chance to make it more about the money. During the course of the month the Moon will make one visit to your work sector and two visits to your career sector and in each instance you'll not only notice progress on the income front, but financial clues on how to put your professional and income objectives on the same page. As the Moon moves through your career sector from the 2nd May to the 4th May things will be the same on the income front, but as your professional instincts kick in and you have a chance to tap back into the professional objectives forged in the early months of the year, you should notice a growing sense of confidence or anticipation when it comes to income matters. Yet by the time the Moon returns to your work sector 2 weeks later, from the 21st May to the 23rd May, as well as giving you an intuitive read on work and job matters, by then you are likely to notice a dramatic increase of activity on the income front and even more by the time the Moon returns to your career sector on the 29th May. From the Moon's first visit to your career sector in the early days of the month to his second visit in the later days of the month everything will change on the income front, with how you see and react to things on the professional front likely to change dramatically as well. The Moon's visit to your work and career sectors are likely to act as trigger points.
To start with it may appear that things aren't going well professionally, but you know what they say about looks being deceiving and not judging a book by its cover. What is likely to give the month a bad first impression is the fact that both Saturn and the North Node are under pressure as they move through your work sector, creating some work tension and some tired and frayed nerves. At the same time, while the push to get your professional year off the ground ended with Mercury's departure from your career sector on the 14th April, with the Moon yet to make his first visit since then, on the career front as a whole things are going to feel up in the air, unfinished and while you have all the facts, that you can't quite get them to gel. Yet move a few days into the month and the conditions will improve and pressure on Saturn in your work sector will start dropping back after his last roadblock, an opposition with Mercury on the 5th/6th May. As the month progresses you'll find that as work pressure eases back that you're also better able to pace yourself and time management is no longer the issue that it was. However, let that balance slip and you'll know about it. In the meantime, most of the uncertainty on the career front is coming from the fact that while the main push to get your professional year off the ground is over, until the Moon makes his first visit to your career sector since the Sun, Mars, Venus and finally Mercury moved through, your professional instincts won't have had a chance to process things. You'll get that chance early in the month, with the Moon moving through your career sector from 4th May to the 6th May, at the same time that the last opposition with Saturn is playing out. This could see a lot of things come to a head on both the work and career fronts during those few days.
It is the early and later days of the month that are the most professionally focused and when you most need your wits about you, with the majority of the month more about remaining on course. Make sure that during the days that count, which are likely to be pivotal days, that you're match ready, for whatever this might trigger. In the early hours of the month you are in the final phase of a push to get your professional year off the ground and on the right track. This began with Mars' return to your career sector on the 12th March and runs its course when Mercury leaves on the 2nd May. During that time Mars, Venus, the Sun and finally Mercury have all moved through, each aligning with Uranus, the planet that is keeping things in motion over the long haul. With Uranus here until 2019 things will never go completely off the boil and Mercury's departure should leave you with your professional desires, expectations, objectives and passions well defined, ready to finalise your game plan. The Moon will move through your career sector from the 6th May to the 8th May and with your professional instincts sharp this will give you a chance to tie up any loose ends. However, there is just enough professional tension in play this month to keep you on your edge, with a need to use this to your advantage. Then just when you thought you knew what you're dealing with a lunar eclipse in your work sector on the 25th May is likely to bring developments out of left field, with a need to keep your finger on the pulse and your ear to the ground during the Moon's visit from the 25th May to the 27th May. This could bring things to a head or to a tipping or turning point and could bring something you'd given up on last year back into contention.
May is always a professionally focused month for you, with the Sun always spending the first 3 weeks of May in your career sector each year. The difference this year is the intensity, a chance for untapped potential taking you by surprise and some work/life balance issues or tension to deal with. These different forces all come together to create the potential for a game changing month, especially if you're able to use any pressure to your advantage, turning it into motivation and a fresh sense of resolve. The intensity is coming from the fact that you not only have the Sun in your career sector as you move into the new month but Venus and Mars as well, fuelling your professional desires, passions and fighting spirit and the pressure from the fact that for the first time in 28 years Saturn is stationed over in your home and family sector and in opposition he's demanding that you operate within the right work/life balance. First impressions are unlikely to be good, for it's on the 1st May that Mars and Saturn will move into opposition and like a red rag to a bull, home and professional forces are clashing head on, with neither prepared to give an inch. Yet with Mercury's return to your career sector on the 2nd May you'll find it a lot easier to work smarter, at the same time that it is also likely to fuel your professional passions and fighting spirit even more. Mercury's opposition with Saturn on the 5th/6th May is the last and by the time Venus leaves your career sector on the 10th May, the same day that a solar eclipse is likely to open the door to some major new beginnings or opportunities, you'll be ready to eat any pressure for breakfast and spit it out, charged and ready for battle. By the time Mars leaves your career sector on the 31st May your professional game will have had one of its biggest pushes in years.
If you're moving into May with a sense that you've been patient for long enough and it's time to make things happen, then you've arrived at the right month with the right attitude. Jupiter, planet of luck and expansion returned to your career sector last June to begin an expansive 12 month visit, but after a very auspicious start by the time the other forces moved on and left Jupiter on his own last August things may appear to have fizzled out. From where things stand now, Jupiter has under delivered and failed to live up to his promise to give your professional game its biggest push in over a decade. Yet Jupiter was always saving the best to last and it's Venus' return to your career sector on the 10th May that brings you into the end game, when everything is due to happen. It was Venus who got things started last year, spending an epic 4 months in your career sector, from April to August 2012, instead of her usual 4 weeks. So when she returns on the 10th May, while she'll be here to bring Jupiter's 12 month visit home, she'll also return to what she herself started. It's then that all those professional desires and expectations you've been burying will once more come to a head and by the time Venus aligns with Jupiter on the 28th/29th May, you'll have no doubt that the planet of luck is back in the game. By then the Sun and Mercury will be in your career sector as well and with Mars returning on the 31st May, this is the month that everything until now has been leading up to and everything from now will lead on from. While Jupiter won't leave until the 26th June and Mars not until the 14th July, Venus' return on the 10th May is when the process of bringing things home begins.
On both the work and career fronts this is a maintenance month, but for very different reasons, with a transfer of power about to take place on the professional front, with the power about to shift from work forces and onto career forces. But until then you have some tying up of loose ends on the work front and some preparation to do on the career front and the two are going to dovetail nicely, for both need to happen in a low key environment and behind the scenes. This buys you a month where you can step back, taking care of any housekeeping and make the transfer of power a more gradual one and much easier to handle and manage. While Mercury left your work sector on the 14th April, wrapping up an active and defining push on the work front that began back in early February, until the Moon makes his first visit since then, things are still likely to be up in the air and feel unfinished. The Moon will make that visit from the 4th May to the 6th May, making these important days for listening to your hunches and what your emotional and intuitive responses are telling you, especially when it comes to summing up where you've been and looking ahead to where to from here. By the time the Moon returns to your work sector from the 31st May to the 2nd June important new doors will be opening on the career front. While lucky Jupiter won't return to your career sector until the 26th June, kicking off your most important and potentially successful professional year in over a decade, with Mercury returning on the 31st May and Venus on the 3rd June, the scene is already being set. Yet behind the scenes Ceres is working all month to help define your real professional priorities, before major new doors open.
There is a need to move into the new month with almost tunnel vision, especially when it comes to work matters. Normally it's a case of being aware of the danger of bringing work tensions home and letting them impact your personal life, but in the early days of the month in particular it's the other way round, with a need to protect your work focus from outside tensions and distractions. You won't have to do this for long, but in the first 2 days of the month in particular you need to create some real boundaries, so that when your work hat is on it's on, doing whatever you can to cut off outside distractions. For until he leaves your work sector on the 2nd May Mercury is wrapping up an active push to get your work situation and work matters off the ground, that began with Mars on the 12th March. With Mercury tying up loose ends, his intellectual savvy gives you the resources to work smarter, get a clear sense of where things stand and where to from here and a chance to make smart choices and decisions, have the talks you need to have and come up with a strategic game plan. You don't have to have everything resolved or where you want or need them to be, but you need to be mentally plugged in and invested in where to from here. The Moon's return to your work sector from the 6th May to the 8th May will give you a chance to put the intellectual savvy Mercury left you with, together with the intuitive hunches that allow you to link in with the forces that will keep things in play over the long term. Once Mercury and the Moon have left, Uranus will not only spend the rest of the month but the rest of the year on his own in your work sector, with the laws of synchronicity keeping things in play. While there is likely to be some work pressure this month it will keep you on your toes, making sure you don't lose your edge.
While May will always be your busiest and most work focused month of the year, with the Sun always spending the first 3 weeks of May in your work sector, chances are you can't remember it being this busy or stressful, making it easy to think that something might be going wrong. Things are busier and more intense this year because, while the Sun, Venus and Mercury move through your work sector at this time every year, putting the spotlight on your work situation and matters Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos only visits once every other year and his first visit since 2011 is making this twice as frenetic as it usually is. However, this shouldn't be a problem, for it's Mars' drives, passions and need for action that allows you to get in and make considerable progress. The problem, when it comes to work pressure or tension, is coming from the fact that for the first time in 28 years Saturn is stationed on the other side of the sky in an intuitive and reflective part of your chart, where with a greater than normal need for navel gazing he's refusing to let you push yourself 24/7 and burn the candles at both ends. The problem is that this is exactly what Mars wants you to do, with their opposition on the 1st May likely to bring things to a head. Yet by the very next day, Mercury's return on the 2nd May will give you the intellectually savvy tools and resources to work smarter and with everything out in the open, to recognise what you're working with and how to manage things more effectively. The worst will be over in the first week of the month and with Mars not leaving your work sector until the 31st May, by pacing yourself and picking your battles wisely you'll probably accomplish much more than by simply bulldozing your way through.
This is the month that you've been waiting for and the month that everything until now has been leading up to, though in the early days of the month there won't be anything to distinguish this from any other month. As you move into the new month things are exactly as they were at the start of last month and the month before with Jupiter, planet of luck and expansion and the only planet in either of your professional houses on his own and marking time. Working behind the scenes on his own since last August, Jupiter is spending 12 months in your work sector, expanding your opportunities, but the start and beginning of the journey is when all the action is. Jupiter got a massive send off in the middle months of 2012, but since then it's been a slowly unfolding journey. But as Jupiter rounds the corner into May he'll see ahead of him the support that will bring things home. Things start to move with Venus' return to your work sector on the 10th May and as she was here before Jupiter returned last year, as well as returning to bring Jupiter's 12 month mission home, she's also here to bring home what she herself started. This is when some very opportune weeks kick off and with Mercury returning on the 16th May, the Sun on the 21st May and Mars on the 31st May, this is when everything will start coming together, ready for the final push next month. The Moon will move through your work sector from the 11th May to the 13th May, before the Sun gets here, so you'll have to wait until next month for a New Moon to really seal the deal.
First impressions aren't likely to look that good and if you take things on face value with work, professional and work/life balance tension and pressure to deal with, you could be forgiven for thinking you're facing an uphill battle. Yet behind this you're likely to find real opportunities building, making it important not to take things at face value. You're dealing with work/life balance tension because this is always the month when home and family matters are thrust to the fore and with the Sun, Mercury, Mars and Venus all spending time in your home and family sector this month, their opposition with forces on the career front is bringing inevitable tension. Yet with the last planet moving on at the end of the month and work/life balance tension getting progressively easier to deal with, this is your one chance all year to get the right balance, for with the huge work, income and career opportunities ahead you're going to need it. So see this as an opportunity not a challenge to get through. Even work tension this month is a sign that something is building on the work front and with lucky Jupiter returning next month, to kick off your luckiest and most expansive year for work opportunities in over a decade, this is more a chance to establish your priorities on the work front, challenging old beliefs and assumptions. Where there is work pressure or tension you'll find a truth trying to be heard and there's a need to listen to what that is, before new doors open next month.
While May is usually a fairly low key professional month and that is the case this year, there is likely to be a sense that something is building behind the scenes, with a need to keep your mind and your options open. In the early days of the month it's more about the money than anything else, with a need to move into the new month with your money hat on rather than your professional hat, which will come later. For with Mercury leaving your income sector on the 2nd May, this is where your focus needs to be, especially when it comes to defining your priorities and your game plan, after which it will be more about keeping the momentum going. With no planetary activity in your career sector since Venus left in the early days of the year and none due until October, the Moon's visit from the 25th May to the 27th May should simply be more a chance to tap into your professional instincts, checking that you're still on track. However, prepare for some unexpected developments, for returning as a lunar eclipse on the 25th May this could be a real wildcard. Within this is the potential for either something planted over recent years to finally come to fruition or something that never quite got off the ground to come full circle. Either way, fate is at work here so expect the unexpected. Meanwhile, the Moon's visit to your work sector from the 16th May to the 18th May will give you a chance to get your bearings on the work front, allowing you to tap into what Mercury has triggered on the income front and a chance to start lining up for the new doors due to start opening up on the work front, later next month.
