Now that the reflective Moon is back in your sign it's even harder to take sides because you can see an issue from both perspectives. Don't give in to someone else's pressure to choose one answer over another unless it's quite clear to you. Your ambivalence may annoy others, but it's also your greatest strength. Maintaining an open mind enables you to save the day as you play the role of a shuttle diplomat, going back and forth until the best solution becomes apparent to all.

You may feel pulled in two very different directions during the first half of the month. Brainy Mercury and the Sun are settled in stabilizing Taurus and your 8th House of Deep Sharing, testing your commitment to others. Prepare to compromise and accept the limits of predictability if you want reliable partnerships. Yet on May 9, magnetic Venus enters flirtatious and curious Gemini and your 9th House of Adventure, attracting you to new people and distant places.
The Taurus New Moon, also on May 9, is a Solar Eclipse that can undermine a financial alliance or a cozy personal connection. Its conjunction with the karmic Lunar South Node in loyal Taurus tempts you to hang on to someone even if you're not getting much from the connection. Let go; it's healthier than resisting change out of habit or a misplaced sense of obligation.
Mercury flutters into Gemini on May 15, filling your mind with so many interests that your thoughts become scattered. Then, on May 20, the Sun follows the messenger planet into the sign of the Twins and your focus makes a definitive turn away from placating others toward expanding your horizons. Education and travel are high on your list of priorities, and learning for the pleasure of it, rather than only to advance your career, is rewarding.
The third of seven Uranus-Pluto squares on May 20 sends deep shock waves through your personal life, reminding you that making a radical change might be your best option. The effusive Sagittarius Full Moon in your 3rd House of Communication on May 25 is a Lunar Eclipse square with Neptune, which can muddle messages or promote unrealistic thinking, so it's critical to discern the difference between facts and fantasies.
Financial partnerships are especially important this month. May starts with four planets in your 8th House of Shared Resources. Managing others' time, money and energy effectively can make the difference between being successful and just getting by. It's necessary to be realistic in your assessment of people, avoiding those whose flashiness hides their lack of substance. These planets are transiting through grounded Taurus where simplicity and directness are needed to provide a clear picture of a working alliance. You might, though, be dealing with a boss who is resistant to trying out new ideas, but it's best to pace yourself and patiently work toward opportunities for change that are not quite ready.
You could find yourself dealing with stubborn people during the first couple of weeks of May. Four planets in stable Taurus occupy your 8th House of Deep Sharing, where comfort comes from being with a reliable individual or where boredom brings you down when others seem stuck in their old, predictable patterns.
