The tempo of life slows for much of May, providing more time for relaxation and rejuvenation at home. On May 3, keeping it simple is the message of the New Moon in easygoing Taurus in your 4th House of Home and Family. A resourceful trine with Pluto helps you uncover hidden assets or reserves of power to meet your public obligations and still have time left to enjoy your private life. Active Mars enters the 4th house on May 11 to remind you that addressing domestic issues is a high priority now. However, Mars’s presence in obstinate Taurus can lock you into a rigid position, making it more difficult for you to compromise.
The planetary stampede into Taurus and your 4th house continues when visual Venus and verbal Mercury arrive on May 15. The pleasure of entertaining company at your home or just lounging around by yourself with a good book and some fine wine is what you deserve. Surrender the struggles to get ahead, change the world, and discover the meaning of life by learning to appreciate the beauty around you and receive pleasure with no obligation to give back. Responsibilities reassert themselves with the intense Scorpio Full Moon in your 10th House of Career on May 17, and flexibility returns with the Sun’s shift into adaptable Gemini and your 5th House of Self-Expression on May 21. Nevertheless, stubbornness can lead to harsh words May 27-31 when Mercury forms stressful aspects with Uranus, Pluto, and Saturn.
Keep In Mind: The demands the world places on you will never go away, yet taking breaks to soothe your body, mind, and soul ensures your long-term productivity.
Career: Harmonizing and Downshifting
You may be fired up with new ideas and connections when May begins. Verbal Mercury, artistic Venus and pioneering Mars are in dynamic Aries and your 3rd House of Information. This makes you a people magnet whose charm makes it easy to talk with just about anyone. Yet while Venus brings harmony, it’s Mars that provokes debates and differences of opinion.
You and those around you may not be seeing the world in the same way, which can kick up some heated conversations. However, if you can keep you cool and maintain an open mind, the discoveries you make are likely to be worth the complicated discussions. Fresh approaches to your work can make you seem like a genius. Instead of slogging along in the usual way, more efficient methods could come to light. These transits, though, also increase restlessness. If you find yourself more and more irritated on the job, the chances are good that you need to think about changing your place of employment or line of work.
There’s a noticeable shift when edgy Mars enters stabilizing Taurus on May 11, followed there by Mercury and Venus on May 15. These transits take some of the edge off and allow you to calm down, settle down and get comfortable in a less stressful routine. It’s time to gear down and find a steady pace, even if you’re not thrilled with what you’re doing. Demonstrating reliability and commitment to meeting your professional obligations might not get you immediate recognition but should pay off in the long run.
Love: Spontaneity Strikes
Romantic opportunities can pop up where you least expect them in the first half of May. Loving Venus and energetic Mars are in your 3rd House of Nearby Places to turn little outings into opportunities to make a heart connection. If you’re already in a relationship, these transits suggest that you can spice things up with spontaneous activities like going for a drive or taking a walk. It doesn’t take lots of money or major events to bring more stimulation to your current partnership.
The 3rd house is also associated with communication, which could make you chattier than usual until Mars and Venus change signs. This happens on May 11 and 15, respectively, when both planets move into solid Taurus and your 4th House of Home and Family. Normally, these shifts tend to reduce social activity as you become busier with domestic concerns.
Yet even though there may be a slowdown in your personal life, it’s not likely to last very long. That’s because the all-powerful Sun enters airy Gemini and your 5th House of Romance on May 21. This initiates a 30-day period when you gain more attention without even seeking it. There’s a chatty, playful and creative surge coming that allows you to turn even routine activities into entertaining events. Even if you don’t think that you’re being flirtatious, others may see you that way. Expressing yourself in a lighthearted way is quite enticing to others, so being your usually cool and clever self could work social wonders then.
I’m… just going to put this here… to reference at the end of the month. XD
