The universe gives you a break this month, with mostly positive planetary alignments that signal life as usual. There could be a challenging financial moment around the 22nd, however, when the Sun in Gemini, your solar eighth house, clashes with Neptune. Take extra precautions to safeguard valuables when you’re out in public, and steer friends to an inexpensive option if you plan an evening out. You’ll be at your best under the May 17 Moon in your sign. The lunar energy will attract people into your orbit, and you’ll be among the most popular on the social scene. Do something nice for yourself that week, and also set aside some time to review the accomplishments of the past six months since your birthday. It’s a good way to be sure you’re on track toward your goals. Relationships are overall positive and upbeat this month, and you’ll enjoy being around and with people. The week of the May 3 Moon in Taurus, your solar seventh house, is among the best of the year for couples in love, and if you’re single, a new romance or an engagement could be in the forecast. This month is also favorable for business partnerships and professional consultations. Listen for positive developments at work around the 11th. A beautiful lineup of Mercury, Venus, and Mars with Jupiter in Aries, your solar sixth house, has maximum potential to bring anything from praise to a salary boost to a promotion or job offer. If you’re interviewing, try to set appointments for that date, which is also good for meetings and important talks.
