The goat of fear, with the head of a goat but the silhouette of a fish, is the definition of what it means to be lawfully neutral. Capricorn is the pillar to all the other zodiacs and is a sign defining structure, reliability, and sternness. Capricorn is the person we trust to hold our phones and keys, plan big eventful weddings, and influence us to be successful hard-working folk. If you have a Capricorn in your life, you almost feel like you have to be the best version of yourself because Capricorn will not accept anything less. When Capricorn enters the 2nd house and gains the energy of Venus, they become an entity of parental trust that keeps us safe and leads the way. During the month of May, Capricorn will feel rapid urges of communication along with emotional demolitions that break the walls of the inner layers of their souls. If a Capricorn is in your life, they are always going to be there for you. This month, it’s time we are there for Capricorn.
Capricorn, thank you for trusting us with your inner being. We always rely on you to carry us and heal our wounds, now it’s time to return the favor.
The planet of communication Mercury is a planet of speed and creativity, so when it enters the home of its child Gemini, it manifests a reunion of intellect and ideas. Capricorn is a sign that structures their beliefs with realism and logic. When the influence of Gemini’s ruling planet reigns over the goat’s head, the chatty and exuberant Capricorn comes out and enchants us all. Aligning on the 3rd of May, Mercury will make Capricorn the life of the party. Imagine ol’ reliable in your workplace; now imagine them three tequila shots down at the company Christmas party. THAT is Capricorn when Mercury enters Gemini. They are chatty, they are funny, they are a little mean (but all in good spirit). They’ll gossip with you and judge others, they’ll disclose intimate facts about themselves, they might even do something scandalous and out of their normal reserved character. The party gets good for Capricorn when Mercury enters Gemini, while still holding the important stuff like everyone’s keys and wallets. Capricorn, let go and let live when you’re living in Taurus this May. Have the fun that your sign is not accustomed to enjoying. Your spirit is youthful and a little spontaneity will only make your rigid structure even stronger.
When you’re basking in your new style of communication expect to feel open and trusting. Talking to others builds the goat a sense of trust, whether genuine or not. When Jupiter enters Pisces on the 8th, it maneuvers the vehicle of communication into the land of emotion. Capricorn is known for being extremely judgemental of others and prefers to remain under the influence of tradition and rigid pillars. Jupiter however is the opposite of judgmental, for the planet represents tolerance and the expanding of beliefs. Jupiter rules truth-seeking Sagittarius and when it enters the emotional sign of Pisces, Capricorns become vulnerable comfort-seeking souls. Along with Mercury, Jupiter is also a social planet so expect to open up an emotional window towards your friends and co-workers. Deep talks in the office lunch break area or afternoon walks with a neighbor will do your spirit good, Capricorn. Just be careful who you open up to. The goat is a cardinal sign that doesn’t have the best emotional connections with others, so when other zodiacs gain the privilege to hear Capricorn open up, they can take pity or advantage. Jupiter brings out morality and honor within us, but not every zodiac experiences Jupiter the same way.
Venus will continue to fill the goat with beauty towards life and tangible reward. May is a healing month for Capricorn and goes smoothly compared to the quarrels of other zodiacs. Because Capricorn has built such a powerful mote of boundaries and inner laws over the years, most celestial events in May won’t affect them as deeply. That is until the 23rd, when Saturn (your ruler) begins to move its forces backwards. Saturn’s Retrograde is different from other retrogrades because it isn’t as harmful as for example, Mercury’s reversal energy. Saturn will actually impose its influence on you instead of taking its influence from you, so when Saturn goes into retrograde the Capricorn returns to its traditional stern character. You might find Capricorn extremely focused on their work or deeply distracted by a certain goal all of a sudden. Don’t take it personal when you approach a Capricorn with a light and jokey air about you and Capricorn just blows you off. They’re too busy staring at the computer reading about stocks or formatting a system for an important client. The party was fun, but now it’s back to work!
On the 27th, Mercury will go into retrograde. For the fearful Goat, this can be a little scary. Don’t fret Capricorn, you’re a strong sign that handles fear well. It might feel like it takes over your dreams and thoughts sometimes, but you’re still alive and experiencing Earth. The energy of Mercury’s reversal will not harm you if you believe in the tornado shelter you’ve rigidly built. Your sense of communication will obviously cease, but your emotional circuits may feel like your soul is hitting the ceiling trying to get out. Perhaps you feel silly now going back to confide in friends, but it's alright to do so. Being there for the one who is always there for us is something the world owes you.
Capricorn, sometimes parents just need a day off. Sometimes all they want is someone to hold them tightly and tell them everything is going to be okay. Everything will be okay Capricorn, you are the GOAT after all.
