May presents two very different tales of relationship. The month
starts with the Sun in your sign, which generally boosts confidence.
However, the planetary lovers Venus and Mars are buried in your
secretive 12th House of Privacy, which can inhibit social expression.
Maybe you'd rather take some time out of the game or simply aren't
getting the attention you'd like. Of course, a positive expression of
these 12th house transits can be to have a private getaway with the
object of your affection or to find love where you least expect it to
Still, matters of the heart can seem beyond your control until May 11
when passionate Mars enters Taurus. This increases your vitality and
encourages you to be bolder in pursuing who and what you want. You'll be
ready to take the lead in connecting with someone new or bringing life
back to an existing partnership. Your persistence can overcome
resistance both within you and others, enabling you to make things
happen when you were less willing or able to do so before.
Even better, your alluring ruling planet Venus moves into Taurus on
May 15, providing another lift to your self-esteem. You're liable to
look especially good now, making you more desirable to others. But what
really makes the magic happen is for you to appreciate yourself. A
little pampering reminds you of how worthwhile you are, which is bound
to gain you more attention from others.
