Life perks along this month with few challenges, and those are likely to be only minor irritations. But you’ll want to keep your wits about you the last ten days or so. An opportunity could come your way, but there may be hidden factors involved or someone could purposely try to mislead you. Postpone the decision, especially if money is involved. If you can manage the time, this is a great month for travel, whether on vacation or business or both. Take the family to a kid-friendly destination or make reservations at a romantic getaway when the May 3 Moon in Taurus, your solar ninth house, triggers a desire to get away from it all. Even a long weekend will provide the relaxation time you need before hectic June arrives. Neighborhood and community activities will attract your interest under the May 17 Moon in Scorpio, your solar third house. This is a great week to get better acquainted with neighbors, attend a local political event, or take a leisure-time class. Any of these and more can put you in touch with people and widen your circle of acquaintances. You’ll also find it easy to strike up a conversation with anyone you meet. Although you could still have some unexpected expenses pop up, the odds favor an upswing in finances as Mercury, Venus, and Mars meet lucky Jupiter in Aries, your solar eighth house. Stop yourself, however, before making snap financial decisions. Do the research and read the fine print if a contract or promise of future gains is involved.
