You’ll have few hurdles to jump this month, and those will be minor. If possible, avoid travel and legal matters near the 20th and 24th, when both are prone to confusion and delays. The same is true of important business meetings, because it will be difficult to get everyone on the same page. Someone at a distance could offer fresh insights near the 25th. It might be a friend or relative, or possibly your partner. Upon reflection, you’ll wonder why you weren’t able to see the obvious, which was apparent all the time. What you hear will bring a new perspective about yourself and your life with the potential to empower you with new-found confidence and independence. Relationships are at their best during the first part of May, thanks to a merger of Mercury, Venus, and Mars with lucky Jupiter in Aries, your solar seventh house. Good news from someone close to you could involve money, a beautiful gift, or something that glitters. An exciting new relationship or an engagement is also possible. This is also good timing if you need an expert opinion from an attorney, accountant, or another professional. Money flows in your direction at the May 3 Moon in Taurus and the May 17 Moon in Scorpio, your money signs. You could realize gains from a raise, bonus, inheritance, insurance settlement, investment, or even a lucky win. Take a chance on the lottery around these dates, remembering that it only takes one ticket to win. The 5th and 6th are favorable for major domestic purchases, and the 18th is a good choice for bargain shopping.
