Your Horoscope by Susan Miller
Going back to my discussion with you about when to ask for more money, if you don’t receive a raise now, in May, keep your eye on the end of November through mid-December as a possible point for an earnings breakthrough. Be ready to present your case to management at that time, and all the while as you go through the year, be sure your performance is sterling in every way. In the meantime, because Uranus is an unpredictable planet that strikes suddenly, be conservative this month with spending until you can see how events of the new moon of May 4 will affect you financially. As said, it is possible you will see a big check, but we can’t count on it with Uranus bringing the news, so lay low for now.
The full moon of May 18 will bring a financial matter to culmination within four days (plus or minus) of its appearance. This full moon is sweet as sugar, and you will find it more stable and far more lucrative than previous lunations. With Mercury and the Sun friendly to Saturn and Pluto, both residing in your tenth house of honors, awards, and achievement, there’s a good chance you will see a large check arrive.
In your favor, Mercury, the planet that rules your sixth house of workaday projects, will receive a golden beam from Jupiter at the time of the new moon in early May, so if you’re self-employed, business should be brisk. If you work for others, your company will be doing well, and your services will be needed. Something else is significant—Neptune, the planet of creativity, will be beautifully oriented toward the Sun and new moon, suggesting your ideas will put you head and shoulders above the rest of the competition. By all means, contribute your inspirations and artistic perspectives—this month, and in the weeks ahead, those ideas will translate into gold for you.
In this very financial month, the big, tender full moon of May 18 in Scorpio at 28 degrees, will also focus your attention to monetary matters, this time different ones. The full moon will light your eighth house of “other people’s money.” That area of your chart rules money held by you and another person or entity, such as a bank, credit card company, another lender, or your mate. The eighth house is the one that inspires you to realize big dreams, for planets working in this house (or aspecting it) will allow you to find the money to fund that dream. It covers student loans, venture capital, and mortgages, but also rules taxes, inheritance, prize winnings, insurance payouts, bonuses, royalties, commissions, severance packages, licensing fees, and gifts. As you see, it covers large sums that come to you through means that are outside of salary. As you may have already guessed, it also includes (in some cases) the kind of money that you borrow and are obligated to pay back.
The full moon of May 18 will bring a financial matter to culmination within four days (plus or minus) of its appearance. This full moon is sweet as sugar, and you will find it more stable and far more lucrative than previous lunations. With Mercury and the Sun friendly to Saturn and Pluto, both residing in your tenth house of honors, awards, and achievement, there’s a good chance you will see a large check arrive. Clearly, there is plenty of pressure on you at work, but you have been stepping up and meeting the demands of VIPs. This is the reason I feel you will reap a reward within four days of May 18. Saturn and Pluto in your house of reputation will be in tight aspect to the full moon, suggesting it will be your growing and glittering career reputation that earns you the money that appears now.
