May starts with two key planets in your 2nd House of Self-worth,
which reminds you to take care of yourself before you concern yourself
with a partner. Loving Venus and passionate Mars are in fiery Aries to
get you excited about investing in your own appearance and abilities.
This isn't about turning your back on relationships, but it definitely
signals the importance of making yourself happy and boosting your
self-esteem. Put some spice in your life with some new interests or by
altering your appearance. Take a chance on being perceived as a little
arrogant if that's what's needed to make you the most important person
in your life.
May 11 could be especially significant because alluring Venus joins
your traditional ruling planet Jupiter then. This is a luscious
combination that's perfect for a bit of self-indulgence. But this
transit also represents a time when you have good fortune in personal
matters, enabling you to jumpstart a stalled relationship or to take a
risk on starting a new one. Move quickly because Mars shifts into earthy
Taurus that day just before Venus does the same on May 15. These
transits may slow the pace of excitement in your life but can also
enable you to communicate in a more consistent manner. You're looking
for the simple truth when you meet someone, so keep your feet on the
ground to attract this kind of individual. Living in the present with
realistic expectations works better than losing yourself in romantic
fantasies that might simply be distractions.
