May is mostly easygoing with life progressing much to your liking. There is one exception and even that is minor. Choose carefully where and with whom you socialize the last week of May. An outing could be far more expensive than planned, and it’s also possible you could lose something valuable when in public. If you shop then, check the store’s return policy before you buy. The universe sends luck your direction during the first two weeks of May when Mercury, Venus, and Mars align with with Jupiter in Aries, your solar ninth house. The possibilities are numerous, including good news from afar, a fabulous trip (or winning one), or a beneficial legal settlement. You might also receive education- related news, such as college admittance (for you or your child) or a scholarship. Home life and family relationships are all you could wish for under the May 17 Moon in Scorpio, your solar fourth house. You’ll want to spend as much time as possible with those you love, and possibly with visiting relatives. This is also a great time to get everyone involved in spring cleaning or another domestic project because you’ll enjoy working together. Your career is a high point this month, beginning with the May 3 Moon in Taurus, your solar tenth house. And it only gets better when Mars enters Taurus on the 11th, followed by Mercury and Venus on the 15th. You have maximum potential to elevate your status with a step up in your company or a new position at another. Be prepared, though, for tough competition.
