With Mercury and the Sun in Taurus for most of the month, you’ll work steadily and be very focused, methodical, and careful. Mercury will be retrograde until May 11 and this motion will cause problems with communication of all kinds, and possibly the loss of important data and documents. You’ll take your time if you’re thinking of getting involved with someone, even though Venus and Mars will bring a strong attraction around May 7. A New Moon in Taurus on May 13 will bring out your sensual side and help you feel relaxed, especially with someone you’re interested in.
During the month of May, you’ll find that your love life will heat up and become very exciting. You’ll put a strong emphasis on love and affection, and you won’t be afraid to be demonstrative. A sextile between Venus and Mars on May 7 will increase your passion and desire. Others will find you attractive but erratic. You’ll also be interested in creative activities, such as drama, music, and art. Mercury and the Sun together in Taurus at the beginning of the month will help you focus on financial matters and get organized. Seek advice, take a course, or read up on financial planning and investments.
