Your Horoscope by Susan Miller
If you have had a disagreement with a contractor, decorator, or architect, this new moon will help you find a way to resolve the dispute and put the matter to rest. This may still take time—I am looking at six months—but May is different from other months that have come before, so by all means, roll up your sleeves and dig in. Uranus, your ruler and planet of surprising news, moved into this part of your chart in March for the first time in your life. (Uranus moves slowly and takes 84 years to revolve around the Sun and travel through all 12 houses of the horoscope.) This means you may see a twist to this conflict that you don’t expect, so you will need to stay sharp and keep your antenna up—news could go either way, and it would not be news you expect. Let’s think positive thoughts because on May 18, you are likely to hear something that makes you very happy that’s home or family related and also career related.
Indeed, your career may make you jubilant at the full moon in Scorpio on May 18, influential for a plus or minus four days. If you have been looking for a new position, this peach of a full moon will likely bring celebratory news about winning a job you dearly wanted. It will feel great to win over the other candidates. If you are not changing jobs, then it may be that you get praise in a company-wide VIP memo, are offered a special promotion from inside your present company, or receive important, positive publicity in the media. At the full moon of May 18, you will have powerful help from VIPs, so until news is out, don’t talk too much to friends and co-workers about the job you might be interviewing for this month. The last thing you need is an enviable co-worker who will attempt to see the same VIP as you in an attempt to snatch the position out from under you.
Romantically, you have sensational aspects in the first two weeks while Mars in Gemini tours your fifth house of truelove until May 15. After that, your work life is likely to become extremely busy, and you will be drawn in, so while you have such glittering aspects for romance in the first half of the month, take full advantage. Venus will be in fire-sign Aries until May 15, a perfect element for Venus to be in to blend with your air-sign element of Aquarius.
Your fifth house of truelove (and new love) is ruled by Mercury, making May 2 a dazzling day for love, when Mercury will align with fortunate Jupiter to make for a bewitching day, perfect for a first date or fun date with your established one-and-only. Not only is May 2 special but so is May 8, when Mercury receives electric, exciting beams in a friendly way from Uranus, planet of surprise.
