Capricorn Horoscope for May 2024

This is an interesting time of fascination for what is going on beneath the surface layers of your psyche, Capricorn, due to the concentration of energy in your domestic sector as a result of last month’s powerful solar eclipse, applying to familial dynamics, your dwelling space, issues of family of origin. With Mercury recovering from its retrograde, you are continuing to spend time reflecting upon these fundamental life factors, conceivably colored by revelations of inner wounding also present. In the current month you are slowly emerging from the ups and downs of that previous cycle, and perhaps still dealing with long-buried childhood trauma. The best approach here is to acknowledge such wounding as present, not to avoid as embarrassing evidence of being flawed, but rather to be accepted, being kind to these cast off parts of yourself. In this May month also, there might arise a type of internal moral understanding for being honest with self and other. By doing the right thing by those around you, you are thereby fulfilling a fundamental commitment to yourself. Your creativity is sizzling lately, and all the more so, the further you can cast aside any blocks to fully inhabiting your authenticity.

The following was written by our guest columnist Alea Balzer. You can write her at

You enter May under the energetic tides of the Aries lunation cycle, which was initiated by a total eclipse New Moon that conjuncted Chiron, the Wounded Healer, in your sector of home, family, and the deepest parts of the self. Chiron's presence suggests that inner wounding could come up for you, continuing into the present monthly cycle, and yet that there are also opportunities for healing such issues or at least for making progress in that direction. This new developmental cycle of may demonstrate further links between vulnerabilities stemming from early childhood and present day experiences family or ancestry. Eclipses are process-oriented meaning that events begun last month will evolve over the next six, and that, in particular, for May you are still integrating recent developments that will continue to affect you over the summer to come. These may guide you to strengthen your foundations and to ultimately establish a deeper sense of safety and belonging.

On the 2nd, Pluto stations retrograde in Aquarius intensifying the transformation that is already going forward in regard to your resources and feelings of self-worth. Pluto will briefly revisit your sign in September, but is essentially present now in Aquarius for the remainder of the decade, and beyond. Having largely shifted focus from who you are, and how you identify, the planet of metamorphosis now has its energies aligned to what you have — your assets, values, and skills and how you wield them. Aspects from Venus and Mars to Pluto as you enter the month suggest powerful emotions could arise so that you might want to mentally hold off from blurting something out that you will regret later on. Matters related to children, home, and leisure may also arise for consideration of what is most important for you as a priority. While action is empowered, Pluto's influence can potentially thrust less conscious material into the picture. You might want to recognize that you relinquish agency when you allow others to dictate your value. You may excel in a job or project by meeting external standards, yet your integrity depends on what you can manage while living by your own code.

From the 5th to the 7th, Mercury conjuncts Chiron in Aries, and you will likely become even more thoughtful about inner issues that could be disturbing your peace of mind. Following the Mars-Pluto sextile, challenges to your sense of foundational or financial security could illuminate a need to separate your identity from family conditioning and your domestic roles. This may also bring up a deeper sense of existential loneliness or alienation, which may motivate you to learn more about your heritage or create your own family culture with chosen kin.

The Venus-ruled New Moon in Taurus on the 7th initiates a new cycle in your sector of self-expression and joy — chiming in certain ways with last month's wild Jupiter-Uranus conjunction. The presence in Taurus of both benefics, Venus and Jupiter, may emphasize harmonious and constructive growth related to your artistic practice, romance, or any children you might have. This is a favorable time to launch or invest in things you want to flourish, and feeds your overall happiness. The Sun and Moon forming a sextile to your ruling planet Saturn in Pisces allows the knowledge you have acquired plus your communicative outreach to others to provide structure for your ambitions and your creative projects to take form.

The Sun conjoins Uranus in Taurus on the 12th and the 13th. The solar rebirth of Uranus in your sphere of joy offers the type of liberation that makes you feel young again. Pluto's recent journey through your sign could have had the ultimate effect of lightening your load, freeing up space in other parts of your psyche for inherent beneficence to come through. The metaphysical message at this juncture is to take responsibility for your happiness and your gifts.

Mercury joins the planetary buildup in Taurus on the 15th, applying to a square with Pluto, which is active until the 17th. Budgeting and spending could be a priority, or you may be strategizing about monetizing a creative skill. Perhaps you are thinking about the allocation of your time, energy, and enjoyment — something you can easily accomplish or enjoy doing may be valuable to others.

Venus conjoins Uranus in Taurus on the 17th and 18th, followed by a magical Jupiter Cazimi, also on the 18th. The radical creative awareness offered by Uranus inspires nonconformity and may be disruptive if you cling too hard to established patterns. This day favors spontaneity and experimentation in matters of art, relationships, and pleasure. While the caveat with Jupiter is to exercise moderation, the planet's rebirth in the heart of the Sun may align with a revived sense of purpose or confidence to go after something you desire. Unexpected doors might open.

A Mars-North Node conjunction takes place in Aries from the 18th to the 21st, energizing aims connected to family, property, and your living situation. Events could have you a little hot-headed, or you could be feeling a bit obsessed about doing things your way. While your family bonds and origins may be intrinsic to your sense of self, you may need to sever some umbilical cord to the past and pioneer a new approach to home, family, and emotional stability.

The Sun enters Gemini on the 20th, initiating a new emphasis in your sector of daily work, health, and service.

The Sagittarius Full Moon on the 23rd illuminates the significance of your sphere of dreams, spirituality, and the unconscious as the lunar cycle culminates. Venus conjoins Jupiter in Taurus as both planets connect to Neptune in Pisces, in your sector of the mind and local environment. Romance, compassion, and creativity, along with day-to-day environment and habitual patterns may be magnified today. However, your mental health or shadows around excess could also come to the forefront. You could think about the subconscious sector of your chart as an artist's studio — a place of retreat where you can go to create and recharge. While you may be pulled by the tasks of the day or fun plans, try to spend some time alone as there is much intuitive and imaginative support on offer there to get you into a generative flow state.

Jupiter enters Gemini on the 25th, where it will spend the next year in your sector of daily work, health, and service. There will be opportunities for success, new experiences, and enjoyment in this area of your life, but you may need to broaden your scope to recognize it. The question of purpose is now directed at your day-to-day responsibilities. You could be compelled by a goal that gives your efforts meaning or disillusioned by the mundane if this is lacking. Jupiter in Gemini offers gifts of versatility and curiosity, which may motivate entirely different routines, approaches to health, or changes in your work — the challenge will be to channel your focus. Jupiter's transit may also magnify dysfunctional patterns, unnecessary obligations, or health challenges, which may act as catalyzing forces for growth.

The Sun, Venus, and Jupiter all connect to Pluto by trine as they enter Gemini. This powerful air sign activation suggests you could be diverting significant mental energy into your daily work or learning a skill, which may boost your income.

These transits overlap with a Mercury-Uranus conjunction in Taurus on the final day of the month, further suggesting that you are being jolted out of some cognitive complacency. This may align with unexpected news or a clarifying realization. Either way, you are being steered toward a future that may be motivated by different ideas that support more enjoyment and meaning in your daily life.
