May 2021 Monthly Work & Business Horoscopes

After many months of competiveness and combativeness on the work front, there is plenty to be happy about on the professional level right now. You have several wins and incredible opportunities on the way right out of the gate when Mercury and Venus strengthen the communication sector of your chart on May 3 and May 8, respectively. This is the perfect time to discuss your vision and start a to-do checklist relating to your career goals. You might want to make additions and changes to it when Mercury begins its retrograde journey on the twenty-ninth.

As the month progresses, you’ll be able to stand fiercely in your power during the new moon in Taurus on May 11. This is a pivotal time to make a new financial plan that can help you attain monetary success in the future.

The lunar eclipse in Sagittarius on the twenty-sixth could inspire you to take a leap of faith and invest in ideas you fully believe in. The payback will be worth it, but it will require a lot of patience (which, given your impulsive nature, you’re not really known for).

Be careful during Mercury’s backspin, which begins on May 29. This frenetic energy could cause a little upset or miscommunication in your professional relationships, but your patience and naturally sharp wit will help you smooth matters over in no time.

Abundance is coming this month, which means that your bank account could be hitting a high. When Venus, your planetary ruler, rolls into Gemini on May 8, there could be a huge shift in the way that you save your cash and budget your money. The caveat is that you might do more talking about a new financial direction you want to take than actually putting your pennies in an IRA. You might want to connect with a financial adviser who can assist you in your plans to ensure your monetary well-being.

The new moon on the eleventh (which aligns with your sun) is an amazing time to make moves regarding work. There has been a lot of shuffling around in the office as of late, perhaps resulting in your role changing and evolving. It’s a fortuitous time for success.

The only thing that could weigh on your shoulders is not being paid what you think you deserve. Contract renegotiations could be helpful during the lunar eclipse in Sagittarius on May 26. As long as you stand your ground, you should get the paycheck you deserve. Mercury’s backward shift in Gemini that begins on the twenty-ninth can help ensure prosperity and growth in the professional sphere of your chart.

This month’s cosmic energy brings a lot of major changes to your work life. For the first time in a long time, you’re the one calling the shots and making the moves. When Mercury and Venus connect with your sun on May 3 and May 8, respectively, you’re apt to be discussing future projects and goals.

The only caution is that your incentives might need revisions when Mercury is retrograde in your sun sign from the twenty-ninth to June 22. Although you might have to rethink your business model during the retrograde, it would be best to elevate an old plan that helps to bring your vision to reality.

When Jupiter enters Pisces and galvanizes the career sector of your chart on May 13, you may find that the world is your oyster. New opportunities could come your way without a hitch, allowing you to gain speed and success in the business sphere. People want to give you opportunities now, so it’s important to lean into the energy and grab those chances. The future is boundless, which will help you reach amazing heights as long as you make strides toward evolving your vision.

These good vibes last until July 28 and then come around again from December 28 through 2022. The lunar eclipse on the twenty-sixth can align you with some great professional partnerships if you’re ready to compromise.

Your cardinal go-getting ways are a little more subdued in the first half of this month because you’re feeling more pensive than usual. You’re taking a more individualistic approach to business prospects, and this allows you to dive inward on an emotional scale. Satisfy your insatiable thirst for knowledge by looking into more integrative projects and keeping your focus on psychological self-discovery. There is plenty of internal growth happening at once, which can feel quite demanding and possibly overwhelming.

You should feel lighter and more connected to your jovial spirit when Mercury and Venus allow you think about the direction of your career on May 3 and May 8, respectively. The reason for this change is a planetary awakening that happens for you and the world simultaneously. It might influence you toward a completely different career track than you’ve ever considered before.

Jupiter’s entrance into Pisces on the thirteenth is a rich time for you to reconsider your path or take classes that can elevate your future. Think of this time as your gift from the universe, a time to truly delve into the subjects you once considered off limits. The growth you’re undergoing now could eventually inspire the educational understanding of future generations. You might find business inspiration in subjects of philosophy and theory, which can help you soar during the lunar eclipse on May 26.

May is the perfect month to make use of your connections. When Mercury and Venus glide into the networking sector of your chart on May 3 and May 8, respectively, you could find that you’re being given the chance to connect with your online colleagues.

If you want to discuss possible work opportunities with someone from your past, the beginning of the month is a great time for you to reach out. Don’t be shy about asking them to introduce you to their connections. It could lead to a new professional opportunity for you during the lunar eclipse in Sagittarius on the twenty-sixth. Set aside your ego, speak up, and ask for their assistance. It can help your situation and possibly lead you to your dream gig.

When Jupiter moves into Pisces on May 13, you could be driven to discuss your spending. Although you won’t want to tighten your wallet (after all, you are the most spendy sign of the zodiac!), it could be time to reevaluate your finances. If you feel like asking for a raise, this is an ideal time. However, you’ll find that you can obtain the most cash for your diligent efforts if you leave your current job and move toward something that can lead to a bigger financial return, fame, acclaim, and all the things you desire.

The beginning of the month primarily focuses on establishing equilibrium between your professional and private lives. You’ll have to strike a balance and stop working so hard (something you’re not too eager to do, being something of a workaholic).

Mercury enters Gemini on May 3, followed by the planet’s retrograde on the twenty-ninth, urging you to transform your personal goals and dreams. If you play your cards right and lean into the higher vibration of the energy, you could reconnect with a youthful vision that you had put on the back burner.

As Jupiter swims into your house of partnerships on May 13, you might consider linking up with a colleague or business friend who can give you important feedback on your goals and help you take your project to the next level.

The good news is that you can start to manifest this dream under the lunar eclipse that occurs on the twenty-sixth. This could be a time of major success in your career as you learn to move toward a greater professional plan, one you hadn’t envisioned before.

Just understand that May is for planning, not committing. You can now start to get all your ducks in a row for the future and begin to make plans that will help you reach your professional dreams.

Creativity is flowing freely from your heart to your professional vision all month. When Mercury enters Gemini on May 3, followed by Venus five days later, you could be inspired to start a whole new vision quest and redo your branding for your business. Keep in mind that it’s a process and may take time to commit to the right look. Don’t let your airy nature push you into a situation you’re unsure about without thinking matters through, a sentiment you’ll begin to realize when Jupiter enters Pisces on the thirteenth.

The lunar eclipse in Sagittarius on May 26 can motivate you to take your unique ideas to the public or discuss them with others. This will be very useful over the next few days when potential clients come looking for a flashy new business to invest their time and money in.

Mercury starts its planetary moonwalk in Gemini on the twenty-ninth, and you may have a chance to cement relationships and sign contracts with clients who intend to work exclusively with you. This can give you the opportunity to help navigate your clients toward greatness. However, the lesson you’ll learn at this time is to set boundaries with them even if the friendly vibe of the Gemini stellium encourages you to connect on a deeper level.

Setting boundaries and clearing debt are essential parts of May’s celestial energies. Mars, your planetary ruler, gently connects with Uranus on May 11, making this an ideal time for you to reflect on any partnerships you’ve recently formed. It might be hard to be sure about the next steps in a relationship because Uranus is erratic and brings a different opinion on the situation every day.

You could find this to be especially true when it comes to the people you trust. Don’t be reactive. Investigate the matter and relationship to decide who is worthy of your energy and who isn’t. That way you’ll be able to create limits with business partnerships that seem slightly questionable during the lunar eclipse on the twenty-sixth. All that shimmers may not be gold or good for your professional future. The sooner you cut these people loose, the easier it will be to manifest abundance in their place. They could even be holding you back.

Mercury’s seasonal moonwalk, which starts in Gemini on May 29, allows you to make plans to repay any debt and money owed to others. You could also be repaid (with interest) some money you lent to another company, employee, or colleague. If you’re feeling daring, step up your game and revisit a raise that’s been pending for a while. It could wind up working out in your favor.

Although you’re used to doing everything solo, you’re realizing the importance of partnerships this month, particularly business alliances. Mercury enters Gemini on May 3, followed by Venus five days later, allowing you to connect with like-minded people and colleagues who share your vision. This is a time when you can implement a new business model as long as you have a balanced and clear understanding of the roles you will all take on.

Jupiter, your planetary ruler, enters Pisces on the thirteenth, giving you a sense of urgency when planning the next steps toward your career goals. The caution is that Mercury begins its post retrograde shadow on May 11 (the retrograde commences on the twenty-ninth), which means that things won’t happen as quickly as you’d like. This will be a lesson to you to make sure you slow down and double-check contracts and the people you’re bringing into the endeavor. Don’t rush the process. You’ll be able to cultivate and create your dreams soon enough.

The lunar eclipse on May 26 could set you back a few days, but consider this to be a good thing. If you slow down, you can now carefully plot out your next moves without any issues. Rome wasn’t built in a day.

If money hasn’t been flowing into your bank account lately, this month doesn’t promise major changes on the financial front, but it does ensure that the strain can begin to subside. When the Taurus sun squares off with Jupiter in Aquarius on May 3, it can mark the beginning of a change in your luck. A creative and lucrative opportunity could fall in your lap around that time, giving you the chance to plan your financial future.

The fog begins to lift when Jupiter enters Pisces on the thirteenth, urging you to be more proactive about your financial planning instead of just looking at numbers. Rather than invest in stocks, you might opt to put your money in a fund that intuitively feels right to you. If you lean into situations that your gut desires and finds promising, it can lead you to more monetary gain down the road.

The lunar eclipse on May 26, followed by Mercury’s backstroke that commences three days later, could make you second-guess your decisions. Staying the course will be the best way to create better cash flow, as well as ride out the ups and downs of the stock market. In the end, the payoff could be huge. As a matter of fact, you are the CEO of your life. You got this.

May is the perfect month for you to ask for a raise. Although you might be unsure about whether your boss (and the higher-ups at the office) will approve your request, you could be pleasantly surprised to find that the cosmos has your back.

The best time to get the ball rolling in this matter is when Venus, the planet of money, enters Gemini on May 8. The most auspicious follow-up date is when Venus aligns with the transiting north node of destiny on the seventeenth.

The lunar eclipse that occurs on May 26 could dampen your plans because your boss may not be prepared to hand over that stack of cash right now. However, if you want to take a leap of faith, you can start looking for other opportunities at different companies to let your boss know you’re serious about wanting a raise or promotion. Odds are they’ll give in when the Gemini sun aligns with the north node of destiny on the thirty-first.

However, that doesn’t mean you won’t freak out about whether you made the right decision when the Mercury retrograde begins on May 29. If you play the game and gamble it all, you could win big. Now isn’t the time to hold your cards close to your vest. Taking a stand to get what you want sometimes requires taking a risk.

The month starts with you discussing ways to elevate your career when Mercury enters Gemini on May 3. Five days later, Venus enters Gemini, elevating your financial well-being. And the good professional vibes don’t stop there!

Jupiter aligns with your sun on the thirteenth, allowing you to take major professional risks that can work in your favor (this is an extremely auspicious transit that lasts until the end of July). It’s a wonderful time to network and connect with former colleagues. If you’re thinking about asking for a raise, you should go for it. You might be surprised by how much you can achieve. Abundance is at your doorstep, and you won’t have to do much to fulfill your professional desires. They’ll float your way when Venus aligns with the north node of destiny on May 17, making this advancement feel fated.

The lunar eclipse in Sagittarius (also a blood moon eclipse) on the twenty-sixth could shake up your chart because it urges you to move toward a new professional venture. As you move forward, try to be careful in your decision-making. Mercury retrograde commences on May 29, which could put a damper on or slow down your plans if you’re not careful.

Conversely, an old endeavor that never came to fruition could come your way again when the sun and the north node connect in the professional sector of your chart on the thirty-first.
