Diana's Monthly Capricorn Forecast for May 2016
Until the 21st there’s a brighter, less inward, vibration around. So that could manifest as more opportunities to be in environments with scope for play or creativity or empowering activities. Or to be more involved with those out to have a good time whether as a participant or a facilitator. More emphasis is given to children, youngsters or romantic partners for some, and for others, there could be more socializing and maybe more contact with arts/entertainments or the leisure industry. You are more likely to feel the light of appreciation from others or be participating in activities you find fun or personally empowering.
Mercury is in a more innovative sector of your Solar chart. Now you enjoy playing with ideas and speculating, maybe a little wildly, on this or that or the other possibility. But, whatever you are doing, there may be more laughs or distractions along the way. Your creative juices are flowing and you are more articulate which may help with beating the drum on something. There’s likely to be increased communications either with or about young people, lovers or pets. Also, you could be more romantically expressive or creatively inspired at this time.
Mercury is retrograde until the 22nd which means hold-ups or having to think things through more carefully.
Until the 24th the position of Venus can mean a sociable more playful period perhaps making new friends or enjoying old associations. Maybe a boost to your love-life, and some of you could be tying the knot with that special person. You are likely to express yourself in freer or more creative ways and there may be more frequent connections with children, younger people, pets or partners. In general, this energy links you more to anything you personally find empowering or satisfying so, leisure, performance type activities are emphasized. And, most importantly, puts you in touch with your own playful inner child.
From the 24th Venus is in a more practical mood, favourably highlighting teamwork regarding daily chores, learning skills (or maybe which button to push), running repairs or health matters – your own or another’s. Others will probably be in a co-operative, more supportive frame of mind assisting with your requirements. You are more likely to have reasonable interaction with health-providers, co-workers and anyone providing assistance and so if there has been an ongoing problem chances are you will find someone to help with recovery or repair and, even if the problem is not resolved, the interaction will tend to be pleasant.
THE COMMON GOOD
Mars is retrograde all month which tends to mute the action and may cause some re-thinking. Those born either in the first week or with up to 8 degrees rising will be feeling the effects most. This is not a great time to initiate a competition or a fight you dearly need to win. If possible, wait until the retrograde is over.
Until the 28th Mars is in a more inward and private area suggesting things are busier behind the scenes or in a separate bubble with others. This is a dynamic energy and so you may be making yourself available for something bigger than you are, or just carrying out routine check-ups or following healthy practices. But that’s alright for this is a karmic house which is about selflessness. This is a time for nurture, healing and support either through you or for you.
This Mars transit will encourage a more self-reflective mood where you will be mulling things over whilst in the midst of other activities. Mars here can dip the vitality and you may be feeling somewhat downbeat and talk yourself out of something which could ultimately be good. But somehow there are not enough facts to make a definite decision. Follow your inner light.
This transit will also stimulate the unconscious and your imagination as well as your ability to manifest what you want and shape things from backstage. You may feel happier if you take more time out for yourself to nurture or heal and it’s advisable to work alone whenever you can. Emotions and some frustrations may be nearer the surface and knee jerk reactions are more likely so this is something you may catch yourself doing. Those who take this onboard may just avoid falling down those old emotional holes in the road.
Because your energies are turned inwards, you are more easily affected by outside influences and can get sucked into other people’s stuff, their moods and opinions, so just be more self-protective at this time. Pay attention to dreams, visions, omens and coincidences. Mars here will also underpin practices like yoga, meditation, clairvoyance or healing, or indeed anything which takes you out of yourself so you sustain the energy and enthusiasm you need to be of service where necessary.
From the 28th Mars is transiting a very future-orientated and sociable area of your Solar chart. You will tend to be the initiator with projects or you have a lot on your plate because of a group with interests or aims in common. Mars can be a bit pushy, so, on the flip side, there may be tensions between you and a friend or associates related to this area. Due to certain others, life becomes more demanding or annoying and you may have to be on the ball, competitive and decisive. Just avoid being hasty and don’t allow others to tire you out or push you into something you don’t want. This is a more progressive phase when things which have been shelved, sometimes for a long time, can start to move forwards again. Can be more technology orientated so things like the internet and the paraphernalia that goes with it could be emphasized. Time to get the ball rolling?
From the 21st you may be dealing with more chores or niggly details, or, this may also be the moment to get to grips with health issues (yours or another’s) or a better diet and exercise regime. You may also be putting more effort into maintenance, repairs, or using skills. So, dealing with the ‘to do’ list and getting things organized better seems advisable, but there will be smiles along the way.
SOWING SEEDS FOR THE FUTURE
Saturn now in the sign before yours, Sagittarius. This position of Saturn marks a time of preparation for when it enters your sign in late 2017. This is the time to tie up the loose ends from the past, face up to behaviours the consequences of previous set-ups which have become counterproductive and move on. You may be doing more inner work or chuntering busily away behind the scenes on something. During this transit, you may be called upon to support or provide a service to others more often, who in some cases, will not grasp just how much you are doing on their behalf or perhaps not realize how much background or personal work you are dealing with. Capricorns born 2nd-6th January or with from 12-16 degrees rising will feel this energy the most.
A LEARNING CURVE
Jupiter will be working happily out of his own house in your solar chart – the ninth. You will have the opportunity to push the envelope of life as your mental/physical territory broadens and teaches you new things. Growth can also come through travel, foreign connections, wider communications through the spoken or written word, another language or academia. Also education – at times viewed as the teacher, the advisor, or guide is more likely. This is a great vibration for broadcasting on to a grander stage, but also for getting involved in publishing, politics, legal issues or communications media. This is an expansive phase and the boundaries of your known world will stretch into new fields of endeavour.
Capricorns born 2nd-5th January or with 12-15 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
Uranus: Capricorns born 9th-13th January or with 20-24 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
Pluto: Capricorns born 5th-9th January or with 16-18 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.

What today looks like:
Continuing today, and ending on Wednesday, the Sun is competing with Mars. The Sun sitting in the sign of Gemini might mean your area of routine tasks, health, and techniques is filled with a power which is intellectual, and chatty. While this balancing act continues, it might be tricky to practice meditation, or to contemplate your job.
As well: continuing today, and finishing on Saturday, the planet Mercury is partnering with the planet Neptune. Your area of games, fun, and children is supplied with a physical, resistant consideration by Mercury in Taurus. It may be good to read something relaxing, or have an enjoyable chat, while this harmonious, natural connection continues.
Also today: beginning today, and concluding on Thursday, the Moon is moving through Capricorn. For you, Capricornian, this means three days where your appearance, and attitude are safer, and more nurturing. Our Moon, when in the sign of Capricorn, provides an authoritative, tenacious desire.
Also On This Day:
- The planet Jupiter continues a trine aspect with Mercury today, which concludes on the 1st.
- The planet Venus begins transiting Gemini until the 17th.
