Nov 22 - Dec 21
Today's Horoscope This week This month
Sagittarius horoscope for May 2022
The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of May in your work sector, shining the solar spotlight on your work situation and job matters at this time every year. While Mercury left in the closing hours of April, a retrograde turn on 10th May will see him retrograde back in on 23rd May, two days after the Sun leaves. This will see the Sun and Mercury change places, with Mercury retrograding out of your relationship sector and back into your work sector, just as the Sun has left there to return to your relationship sector.
Together this will keep the focus on work and job matters and on your relationships. This is always an important month on both fronts and there is often a crossover, but not to this degree. Until retrograding back out of your relationship sector and as the planet of communication, Mercury will be working to get the communication lines open and in retrograde motion, can even give the past and unsaid words a voice ahead of the Sun's return. However, while the focus is always on your relationships and on work and job matters at this time of year, there is an unexpected surge in planetary activity in an exciting part of your chart.
The Sun's departure from a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart on 20th April saw the solar spotlight shift onto work and job matters, where it will stay. However, while this will usually see the influences on the playful side of life's fence wane, they are about to do the very opposite. It begins with Venus' return on 3rd May, followed just eight days later when Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion returns for the first time since 2011. Just having the planet of love and luck in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart for the first time in over a decade is a game changer but they will be joined by Mars, the planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos on 25th May.
Love & RomanceThe Sun may have taken the solar spotlight off matters of the heart and all things romantic when it left your romantic sector on 20th April but the best is still to come. The Sun will always return to your romantic sector on the March equinox and will continue to keep the solar spotlight on matters of the heart and all things romantic through the first three weeks of April. As this is usually when Venus, the planet of love will also move through, this can make March and April the most romantically charged months of any year. However, held back by a retrograde turn late last year Venus is late to return and instead, the most romantically charged months of the year will begin with the planet of love's return on 3rd May.
Venus is here until 29th May and with the planet of love spending all but the early and latter days of the month here, this was always going to make this the most romantically charged month of the year. However, it is what happens next that takes this to a whole new level. It is just eight days later that Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion will return to your romantic sector on 11th May, kicking off the most romantically charged months in over a decade. Jupiter is here now until retrograding back out in October but will return in December to see out the year here. Another surge will come when on 25th May both the Moon and Mars return.
It has been two years since you last had Mars in your romantic sector but he not only returns to fire up your financial passions and fighting spirit but to team up with Jupiter in order to take over from where Venus leaves off on 29th May. Meanwhile, as is always the case at this time of year, the Sun's return to your relationship sector on 21st May will turn the solar spotlight on your relationships. However, before then you not only begin the month with Mercury, the planet of communication here but his return on 10th May will offer a chance to give the past and unsaid words a voice. Mercury will retrograde back out on 23rd May but not before getting the communication lines open ahead of a New Moon on 30th May.
Business & CareerBecause 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.
MoneyThe dynamics of this financial year are changing, albeit in slow motion and with the balance of power still on the income side of the financial fence. From Venus' epic four month visit that spanned the final weeks of 2021 and the early months of 2022 to Mars' first visit in two years, there has been a lot of energy on the income side of the financial fence over recent months. Having begun the year with the Sun here and even Mercury retrograding back in and out, a lot has been invested and a lot of water has passed under the bridge. However, Pluto is not only back on his own but a retrograde turn on 30th April has put him into review mode.
Pluto is still the only planet in either of your two money houses and this still has all the focus on the income side of the financial fence but the fight has gone out of things and instead, there is a chance to regroup to focus more on untapped income potential as you go back over old ground. This comes just as new doors are opening on the job front but when Mercury retrogrades back into your work sector on 23rd May he will work with Pluto on a joint mission to extract untapped potential on both fronts.
With things dialling back on the income front this leaves space for money matters to have their turn. While the Sun won't return to your financial sector until next month, the dwarf planet Ceres' return on 15th May will be a chance to start preparing. Ceres' focus is not on the money and instead, before the most active months of the year on the financial front begin her focus will be on first updating your financial needs and priorities. As always, the Moon will visit your two money houses each month, with a return to your financial sector from 5th May to 7th May and to your income sector from 19th May to 21st May a chance to check in and become more emotionally and intuitively engaged.
