May Horoscope for Leo
Two polarizing eclipses this month influence the ways you express yourself both creatively and professionally. On May 9, the determined Taurus New Moon is a Solar Eclipse in your 10th House of Career that's likely to amplify your ambitions. Contentious Mars' conjunction with the eclipse could provoke conflict with authorities and drive you to seek employment elsewhere. The desire to run your own business is understandable, yet whether you stay in your current position or go somewhere else, learning how to delegate duties and motivate others to share the load makes the difference between fulfillment and frustration.
The adventurous Sagittarius Full Moon Eclipse on May 25 occurs in your 5th House of Love and Creativity to stimulate hunger for new forms of pleasure and self-expression. Empathic Neptune's square to the eclipse inspires your imagination and heightens your sensitivity to your audience. But this dreamy planet may also lure you into pursuing fantasies that are unlikely to become realities.
Getting along with friends and colleagues is another key concern with four planets flitting into diverse Gemini and your 11th House of Groups this month. Vibrant Venus leads the parade to enliven your social life on May 9, followed by chatty Mercury on May 15, the radiant Sun on May 20, and rowdy Mars on the May 31. Connecting with a wide variety of people is exciting, but could scatter your intellectual, emotional, and physical resources.
The third of seven unstable squares between transformational outer planets Uranus and Pluto on May 20 is a reminder to keep your eyes on the big prize of long-term change instead of being distracted by trivial events.
Keep In Mind: Success is more likely when you take the long road to the top now instead of seeking out shortcuts that won't get you as far.
Career: A Roaring Career
Professional matters should be on the front burner this month as May opens with four planets in your 10th House of Career. Although your creativity and personality might be keys to your success, practicality and persistence are even more important now. That's because these planets are in to back to basics sign Taurus, which rewards you for being reliable, consistent and low maintenance. Taking care of business without fuss or both will not demand attention yet will make you a more desirable employee, colleague or boss in the long run.
Love: Compromise Is Key
Patience is a must as May begins, dear Leo. Four planets in placid Taurus make relationships easier when you're able to pace yourself. Because these planets fall in your 10th House of Public Responsibility, you may need to spend more time and energy on your job than usual. Plan your schedule carefully and don't overload yourself with obligations that leave no time for your personal life.
