Why does a Scheduled Job automatically become a Queued job?

I'm running into the limit of five queued, not scheduled, jobs.  I have one job that runs an Apex batch class once a month.  However, once it runs on say 4/1, it creates a scheduled job for 5/1.  Now one of my five is taken forever.  I have two other scheduled jobs that run weekly.  Now, I'm at 3 of 5.  We have installed Rollup Helper and TaskRay and now I'm at 6!

How can I code my scheduled job so that it doesn't permanently take up a queued job?  I find it odd that a monthly process should count for one fifth of my limit in this regard.

Note that my Apex code is running fine.

Thanks!
