May 2012 Capricorn Career Horoscope

Get a fresh perspective

Your creativity should flourish this month while the Sun is in fellow earth sign Taurus and your expressive 5th House of Self-Expression until May 20. This is an excellent opportunity to come up with work-related ideas and to make strong presentations. Just do your homework, as you always do, and you'll be able to convince others that your concepts are realistic and achievable.

Gaining the support of colleagues can make a big difference around the Full Moon in Scorpio on May 5. It lands in your 11th House of Teams, where you may be challenged by an overly emotional co-worker. You may share the same goals, but clinging to old wounds can undercut cooperation. Finding your passion and applying it to your job, or pursuit of one, can make a major impact.

Some allies may want to back out of or alter agreements when sociable Venus turns retrograde in your 8th House of Deep Sharing on May 15. But instead of trying to force others to go along with your plans, you might use this six-week reversal period to adjust your expectations and perhaps even renegotiate your position with work partners or customers.

A fresh perspective on what you can accomplish with the right person comes with the Gemini New Moon on May 20, which also lands in your intimate 8th House of Deep Sharing. This event is colored with Neptunian lights of imagination that can inspire grand dreams and schemes. Just beware of a bit of fantasy that can lead you in an unproductive direction or connect you with someone who can't live up to his or her promises.
