Moving beyond your usual circle of friends and activities is a great
way to enhance your personal life during the first two weeks of May.
Astrology's lovers, Venus and Mars, begin the month in fellow Fire sign
Aries and your 9th House of Faraway Places. An itch to travel,
connections with people in distant locations or educational
opportunities may bring romance now. It is possible, though, to fall in
love so quickly or to attract someone who doesn't take the time to get
to know you very well. While this can certainly be exciting, it's not
the ideal formula for establishing a lasting relationship. It's probably
wiser to simply enjoy yourself without thinking too much about the
future. If you're already in a relationship, though, plan a trip or
explore new experiences together to give it the spark it needs to keep
On May 21 the Sun enters flexible Gemini and your group-oriented 11th
House of Teams and Friendship, increasing the social benefits of being
with friends or meeting someone through an organization. On May 22,
though, the Sun forms a stressful 90-degree square with dreamy Neptune
that can mislead you into imagining something that isn't true. If you're
into a temporary fantasy, this can be an excellent transit. Yet if
you're seeking something real, think carefully about what you're doing.
On May 23 Venus and Mars join together in your 10th House of Career
and Public Responsibility, bringing sensuality to your workplace or
making you more desirable when you are in a leadership position.
