Monthly Career Horoscopes - May 2022
There is likely to be a different feel this month from the start, something that is in stark contrast to where things were at the same time last month. While Venus and Mars both left your career sector in March and this is when the hectic pass that the year began with dialled back, Pluto was still working to capitalise on the momentum gained. Especially from the four months that Venus had spent here and from the six weeks that Mars had spent fuelling your professional passions, fighting and competitive spirit during his first visit in two years. Things started to slowly dial back over the course of April until, at a complete standstill, Pluto turned retrograde on 30th April. As you move into the new month Pluto is in his first full day in retrograde motion and at a standstill, the professional gods have pushed the pause button. It won't stay that way, with Pluto gradually starting to move again but back across the ground already covered over the last five months. Things have been busy and hectic during that time and where there was only time for quick brush strokes there is now a chance to go back over the same strokes, this time with a topcoat, a chance to fill in the blanks and capitalise on what has already been invested. This has taken the urgency out of this professional year, at a time when an increase in planetary activity on the income front is offering a chance to benefit financially from what has been invested professionally. This makes the Moon's visit to your work sector from 10th May to 12th May more than just a chance to get an intuitive read on work and job matters. These could be some of the best days of the month across the income, work and career fronts. Meanwhile, the Moon will make its first visit to your career sector since Pluto's retrograde turn from 19th May to 21st May. As well as sharpening your professional instincts this will give you a feel for this retrograde phase and where it is drawing your attention.
What a difference a month can make. Last month not only began with Venus and Mars still in your career sector but aligned until they both left on 6th April. This was the tail end of a push that had begun with the Sun's return in January, keeping the momentum and the thrust of this professional year going for much longer than is usually the case. Even then, with the asteroid Juno, the queen of commitment still here you had spent much of last month turning not just the past few months into a sense of resolve but the time that Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion had spent here in 2021. Juno only left towards the end of last month, with Saturn spending his first full month on his own here in nine months. This was always going to bring the wild swings and the urgency of recent months to an end, with Saturn a sober and steady pair of hands at the wheel. With the resolve from Juno's time here banked, this has allowed you to define your professional resolutions for the coming year and it now becomes more about staying on track. However, as Saturn slows ahead of a retrograde turn early next month, this is also slowing things down, giving you better control and even a chance to catch your breath. The Moon will make its last visit to your career sector before Saturn's retrograde turn from 21st May to 23rd May and with perfect timing. This will put the Moon at a friendly aspect to the Sun, who will return to your income sector on 21st May and to Mercury before he retrogrades back out of there on 23rd May. Meanwhile, with no planetary activity in your work sector but coming full circle from last month's Full Moon there from 12th May to 14th May, this will create positive conditions across the income, work and career fronts.
Starting the month with five planets still in your career sector, even though it has been nearly six weeks since the Sun left is not only keeping things active much further into the year than is normally the case, it is only now that things are coming together. The month not only begins with Venus and Jupiter, the two benefics aligned in your career sector but just days after Venus also aligned with dreamy Neptune. Venus is the planet of desire and expectations and Jupiter is the planet of luck and expansion, with their first alignment here in over a decade getting the month off to an auspicious start. With Venus leaving on 3rd May and Jupiter on 11th May, they will be working to make their final days here count, with the very real potential for professional growth and expansion. However, it is once Venus and Jupiter leave that there could have been the potential for things to drop off. That won't be the case and not just because here until 25th May, Mars will continue to fire things up and as the warrior planet of the cosmos will fight to exploit the momentum already gained. However, what gives this even more longevity was the asteroid Juno's return late last month. While only a minor player and overshadowed by the more dominant planets Juno, the queen of commitment is here now until January 2023 and she will stay on to keep you committed, while Neptune will stay on to keep the dream alive. It is just three days after Jupiter leaves on 11th May that the Moon will not only return to your work sector on 14th May but to begin the lead up to a Full Moon here on 16th May. This is no ordinary Full Moon and instead a total lunar eclipse. With Mars still in your career sector and the dwarf planet Ceres returning to your income sector on 15th May, this will energise things across the income, work and career fronts.
That things have dialled back on the career front is expected at this time of year, especially with the Sun having left your career sector on 20th April and Mercury already been and gone by then. With the dwarf planet Eris, the warrior princess of the cosmos here for decades now, things will never go completely off the boil and your warrior and competitive spirit is always ready to respond but with the Sun gone this is the point when it can become more about the journey. However, while things have dialled back this is only temporary, with even the professional gods making the most of a chance to pause before a second and much bigger wave begins. It starts with Venus' belated return on 3rd May. Even if this was the only thing that happened, ready to make up for lost time and able to capitalise on what the Sun and Mercury have already created, until leaving on 29th May Venus would still have made this an unexpectedly good month on the career front. Instead, this will be dwarfed just eight days later when on 11th May Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion returns to your career sector for the first time in over a decade. With Jupiter here now until October and Mars, the planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos returning on 25th May for the first time in over a decade, everything until now has just been preparation. Even the Moon's return to your career sector from 25th May to 27th May is timely. The Moon will return on the same day as Mars, ensuring your professional instincts and imagination are fuelled as his professional passions, fighting and competitive spirit kick in. As the Moon's first visit since Jupiter's return and the last before Venus leaves on 29th May, the Moon will be here during the few days that all three will be here at the same time. Another important point in the month will be when the Moon moves through your work sector from 16th May to 19th May. As well as giving you an intuitive read on work and job matters, a friendly aspect to Venus and Jupiter in their early days in your career sector could act as a trigger on both fronts.
Because the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of May in your career sector, it is a given that the solar spotlight is on your career situation and matters at this time of year. However, there is not only a lot more going on this year but the professional dynamics themselves are shifting, with all this evident as you move into the new month. From the start, 1st May is significant for several reasons. This is Pluto's first full day in retrograde motion in your work sector, bringing you to a point in this professional year when work and job matters are pulling back and moving into review mode, just as career matters are gaining momentum. Meanwhile, the Moon not only begins the month in your career sector but aligned with the Sun to create a New Moon. However, while there will always be a New Moon at some point during the Sun's month long visit, the North Node's return in January turns this into a solar eclipse. Starting the month on an eclipsing New Moon is giving career matters some real momentum from the start. Meanwhile, it was Mercury's departure in the closing hours of April that also allows you to begin the month with the means to work smarter, keep your head in the game, ideas on the table and the communication lines open. This isn't the last you will see of Mercury, with a retrograde turn on 10th May seeing him retrograde back in on 23rd May, two days after the Sun leaves. Mercury will still be here when Venus returns on 29th May and with Mars set to make his first visit in two years not long after she leaves, this will provide ongoing momentum and continuity. While things are starting to move on the career front the pace will continue to pick up for several months. With work and job matters retreating and career matters expanding, the Moon's visits are a valuable chance to check in with both. After leaving your career sector on 2nd May and wrapping up the eclipsing New Moon, the Moon will come full circle from 27th May to 30th May. Meanwhile, the Moon will make its first visit to your work sector since Pluto's retrograde turn from 19th May to 21st May.
While the Sun's return to your career sector on 21st May is the point in each year when the solar spotlight turns onto your career and professional situation, matters and options, this year you not only have a head start but the engines are warmed up and ready to go. While things technically start to move on 1st May, with Mercury spending his first full day in your career sector, they began much earlier than that. It was last July that the dwarf planet Ceres not only returned but she is still here, with what is normally a three month visit finally ending on 15th May. For the majority of that time, Ceres' presence has been overshadowed by the planetary activity on the job front and that has suited her just fine. Ceres was never focused on career growth, movement or on anything practical and instead, on defining your professional needs and priorities so that you were ready for when planets that could make things happen arrived. That happened on 30th April, when Mercury returned with a chance to get your head in the game, ideas on the table and the communication lines open. This comes just as Saturn is spending his first full month on his own in your work sector and as work and job matters have become settled, stable and a lot less urgent. With Saturn slowing ahead of a retrograde turn early next month, the urgency and rush mentality of recent months is gone. Mercury will turn retrograde on 10th May, so even on the career front this will give you a chance to spend time back at the drawing board before the Sun returns on 21st May. Mercury will retrograde back out of your career sector on 23rd May, just two days after the Sun turns the solar spotlight onto your career situation and matters. This will take the brakes off and with the Moon returning on 30th May as a New Moon, in time to ensure you can capitalise on the forward momentum this can create. With Mercury returning next month and Venus and Mars over the coming months, this is just the start of a new wave of increasing momentum on the career front.
As you move into the new month it has been nearly six weeks since the Sun left your work sector, bringing you to a point in this professional year when Neptune is back on his own, quietly keeping the momentum going and the dream alive. Things should have dialled back on the job front this month to a point where all your options are exposed and it is more about staying on track. However, as you not only begin the month with five planets still in your work sector but with Venus and Jupiter aligned, this is far from the case. A series of unrelated coincidences is not only keeping work and job matters alive but in a way not seen before. Venus should not be here, but a retrograde turn late last year means that she was late to return, putting her here as Jupiter and Neptune, the planets of luck and dreams aligned here last month. The month begins with Venus having just aligned with Neptune and still aligned with Jupiter, making this something you are still capitalising on. Another coincidence was Mars' return last month, with the warrior planet of the cosmos timing his first visit in two years to perfection. The final coincidence was the return of the asteroid Juno late last month. While overshadowed by the other planets here this month, with the queen of commitment here now until January 2023, she will help you to stay committed long after they leave. With Venus leaving on 3rd May and Jupiter on 11th May, they will be working to make their final days her count, getting the month off to an auspicious start. However, Mars will stay on until 25th May so will be here, firing things up and fighting to make things happen when the dwarf planet Ceres returns to your career sector on 15th May and during an eclipsing Full Moon in your income sector on 16th May. This will fire things up across the income, work and career fronts right in the middle of the month. Meanwhile, the Moon's return to your work sector from 23rd May to 25th May will ensure you are emotionally and intuitively engaged during Mars' final days here.
The Sun's departure from your work sector on 20th April not only took the solar spotlight off your work situation and job matters but brought things back to the status quo. Because the dwarf planet Eris, the warrior princess of the cosmos has been in your work sector for decades and is here now for another three decades things will never go completely off the boil. Eris' warrior and competitive spirit is always there to tap into and after the Sun moves through each year, she is always a lot more energised. Taken in isolation, where things stand at the start of the month is fairly typical for this time of year but that is about to change. Normally, this would mean that the push to get work and job matters moving and up to speed is over and with nothing else happening for the rest of the year it would then become more about the journey. However, from the start, your gut will be telling you there is more to come. Instead, what you have is a brief chance to pause and catch your breath before a second and much bigger wave begins. It begins with Venus' return on 3rd May and late to return because of a retrograde turn late last year, she will be ready to make up for lost time. Even on its own, here until 29th May and on a mission to fuel your job confidence, attract opportunities and steer things in a lucrative direction, this would still make this one of the best months of the year on the job front. While that is still the case, this will be dwarfed by Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion's return on 11th May. It has been over a decade since Jupiter was last here and this opens the doors to months of job growth and expansion. Adding to this will be Mars' return on 25th May, with the warrior planet of the cosmos returning for the first time in two years to fire up your work passions, fighting and competitive spirit. Rather than run their course, as you move into the new month this is a chance to pause before things take off in a way not seen since 2011. Meanwhile, the Moon will make from 7th May to 10th May key days for career matters, while returning to give you an intuitive read on work and job matters from 25th May to 27th May.
Because the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of May in your work sector, the solar spotlight is always on work and job matters at this time of year. However, an eclipsing New Moon on 1st May is the first sign that something is different and that ahead are a lot more possibilities than is normally the case. Even Mercury's departure on 30th April is allowing you to work smarter from the start while also keeping your mind and your options open. Normally Mercury's departure would signal a need to tie up loose ends but it is not just the eclipsing New Moon on 1st May that suggests there are more opportunities ahead. While the Sun will leave on 21st May, a retrograde turn on 10th May will see Mercury make a U turn that will see him retrograde back into your work sector on 23rd May. Last month Mercury returned ahead of the Sun and returns two days after it leaves on 21st May to pick up the mantel again. However, neither the Sun nor Mercury's return got things started, with both returning to find Uranus and the North Node already here. It is having the North Node here that is not only giving work and job matters a sense of direction but is responsible for turning the New Moon on 1st May into a solar eclipse, increasing the potential for unexpected developments and the strength of the momentum this can create. While the month will end with the Sun gone and Mercury in retrograde motion, Venus' return on 29th May will not only keep the momentum going but with it a chance to capitalise on what has already been invested. Held back by a retrograde turn late last year, Venus is late to return but will end the month and spend the first three weeks of June fuelling your job confidence, attracting opportunities and steering things in a lucrative direction. The Moon will come full circle from the eclipsing New Moon at the start of the month from 27th May to 30th May so will be here, giving you an intuitive read on work and job matters when Venus returns on 29th May.
While the Sun won't return to your work sector until 21st May, something that will always turn the solar spotlight onto work and job matters at this time of year, there will be signs of movement on the job front from the moment you move into the new month. While the dwarf planet Ceres has been in your work sector since last July, her focus has never been on creating movement or supporting developments and instead, on preparing you for when planets would return who can make that happen. Instead, Ceres' has been taking you on a deep dive into your needs and priorities on the job front and especially when it comes to job satisfaction and a sense of purpose. While Ceres will finally leave on 15th May, this is not the reason why there are signs of movement on 1st May. Instead, this is coming from Mercury, who after returning in the final hours of April is still in his first full day in your work sector as we move into the new week. Mercury returns each year, usually at around the same time as the Sun, with the intellectually savvy and articulate edge needed to work smarter, get your head in the game, ideas on the table and the communication lines open. Normally here for just 14 to 15 days, this can create some urgency and often a need to finalise your choices, decisions and plans moving forward. However, with the Sun not returning until 21st May it is too soon for that and instead, a retrograde turn on 10th May will be a chance to hold back and spend more time back at the drawing board. This will see Mercury retrograde back out on 23rd May, just two days after the Sun's return on 21st May. This is something that will take the brakes off and allow for new movement on the job front, something that the Moon's return on 30th May as a New Moon will give wings to. However, you will benefit from the 13 days that Mercury is in retrograde motion here. This is long enough to give you time to retrace your steps but not long enough to get bogged down. Once back in direct motion Mercury will return next month, in time to support the Sun in his final days here.
While the South Node has been in your career sector since its return in January, it has been largely lying low and with no planetary activity in either of your two professional houses has been more focused on playing support for the planets in your income sector. That will remain the case and as this has the potential to be the most lucrative month of 2022, that support will be invaluable. However, this month we finally see the first signs of an awakening of this new professional year, much earlier in the year than is normally the case. With the Sun not returning to your work sector until June and to your work sector until October next year, you don't usually see movement on either front in May. However, things are set to fire up on both the job and career fronts, right in the middle of the month. It begins with the Moon's return to your career sector on 14th May, something that will always fuel your professional instincts and imagination and can act as a trigger. This is not the Moon's first visit since the South Node's return in January but the difference this time is that the Sun is now on the other side of the sky. With the Sun passing across the lunar nodes, this will turn an ordinary Full Moon here on 16th May into a total lunar eclipse. What makes the timing auspicious is that the Moon will be here when the dwarf planet Ceres returns to your work sector on 15th May, the same day that Mars moves into his final 10 days in your income sector. An eclipsing Full Moon in the heart of the month will generate enough energy to bring all the potential building since the South Node's return to a head, turning and/or tipping point while at the same time energising things across the income, work and career fronts. Ceres returns ahead of the Sun's return next month in order to first update your needs and priorities on the job and in the process, finds herself in the thick of some real action.
With no planetary activity in either of your two professional houses, it is all about the Moon's visits to both, along with some other advantages that you have this month. The first advantage is having Mars in Pisces until 25th May, with the warrior planet of the cosmos fuelling your passions, drive, competitive and warrior spirit until he leaves. This is something that the Moon will tap into when it moves through your work sector from 7th May to 10th May and when it moves through your career sector from 16th May to 18th May. Mars will be looking for something to channel his warrior and competitive spirit into, making these ordinary monthly visits a lot more potent. The other advantage is a second and much larger wave of planetary activity on the income front, starting with Venus' return on 3rd May and followed by Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion's return on 11th May. This is something that will have lucrative implications now and for months to come and especially with Mars also returning on 25th May. The Moon's return to your work sector from 7th May to 10th May will come just days after Venus' return to your income sector, creating an auspicious few days on the income and job fronts. By the time the Moon returns to your career sector from 16th May to 18th May Jupiter will be in your income sector as well and as it moves through, will form a friendly aspect to both. These will create some even more auspicious days on the income and career fronts. This is the Moon's last visit before returning as a Full Moon next month and as Mars began the year here, there will be both professional momentum and anticipation for it to tap into and amplify. For what is on paper a low key point in this professional year, there are plenty of opportunities and reason for confidence across the income, work and career fronts.
