On the face of it the influence of Taurus energy predominant in May is an advantage to your sign. Taurus energy represents your solar 5th house, which is all about creativity and the celebration of life force, so the message is very much of acknowledging and indulging your creative and recreational instincts.
Romantically, you also have windows of opportunity until at least the 10th when Venus graces your Cupid-dominated sector, and from May 12th until the 28th creativity focuses on the written and the spoken, and love life and intellectual stimulation are, it seems, indivisible.
Mars in Pisces this month is a very helpful influence for you sign, as it lends weight to intellectual courage and forcefulness of communication.
However, the emphasis of this is on subtlety, rather than on an “in your face” style, and osmotic and subliminal communication is the zeitgeist that will win the day, and you can be a master of this now.
Saturn is not your best friend currently, being in your opposite sign, and therefore those born specifically January 11th to 16th are feeling the focus of the demands of relationship most directly.
This apparently is a karmic lesson, and will either validly demand your loyalty and duty, which is what you owe, or demand that you realize that relationships are as much about hard work, as they are about enjoyment.
Another distinct possibility but is that this is a time when you have to recognize that abusive or oppressive relationships are no longer tolerable and well be beyond the call of duty, having their roots in co-dependency.
In other words, you need to look at your own pathology, in order to fully understand why you have invited in to your life a dysfunctional situation. It takes two to tango.
Jupiter meanwhile is no enemy, but public success, which is highly likely now, can be built on a rather fragile basis.
Your worst enemy is ego and superficial success, and for those of you born December 29th to January 2nd, be warned that your self-confidence may exceed ability.
Uranus is now encouraging real independence of thought, especially for those born December 30th to January 2nd and when this energy combines with Mars on the 15th and 16th, your communication skills and perception are a step ahead in terms of vision and insight.
Your ability to mesmerize with special effects and strike a real chord should not be underestimated. Capricorns tend to be conservative and rather reactionary in their thinking, but during this period there are ample opportunities to really break free and look at a completely new and liberating dimension.
The cutting edge and the controversial is a rather alien concept to Capricorns.
For once in your life you have an opportunity to really exploit this particular angle on life, and more specifically, through your wisdom and artistic performance.
