What a difference a month makes! May is generally easygoing with life perking along, thanks to favorable planetary alignments on your side. If you plan to travel, however, the earlier in May the better. Then you’ll minimize the chance for delays and have greater success if you’re away on business or attending a conference. The Moon in Scorpio on the 5th accents your solar fifth house. That means it’s play time! Plan an outing with your children, spend leisurely hours with a hobby, and consider taking the family to a ball game or recreation area. This is also your romance sector, so arrange a special evening with your mate or socialize with friends where you can meet other singles. Your focus is on friendship under the May 3 Moon in Taurus, your solar eleventh house. And the energy keeps flowing all month, with Mars entering Taurus on the 11th, followed by Mercury and Venus on the 15th. Your social life will keep you on the go, so plan ahead if you especially want to see certain friends. May is also your best networking month of the year, and you could make some important connections through friends or your involvement in a club or organization. You’re perfectly placed this month for career recognition and success thanks to Mars, Mercury, and Venus, all of which align with Jupiter, planet of good fortune, in your solar tenth house. Take advantage of any opportunities that arise to demonstrate your value to decision-makers, and offer to take on extra projects or presentations. If your company has a monthly award, you could be the winner.
