Your May Horoscope for Libra
If you are not involved with a career matter, the fact that Uranus is conjunct the Sun suggests you might be thinking about a friend who, much to your shock, has not been as loyal to you as you assumed she was. Suddenly, your friend may be showing you a troubling side, making you feel disillusioned for having placed your trust in her. (Lunar eclipses tend to point to females—the reason I refer to your friend as a “she.”) This eclipse is related to the one that occurred on November 8, plus or minus one month, so if you follow the breadcrumbs, you will find money is at the core of the problem.
Mercury started to retrograde last month on April 21 and will continue to retrograde until May 14. Leave a space of as many days as possible before you start making commitments or announcements to allow Mercury to regulate its speed.
The new moon on May 19 in Taurus will give you a chance to reverse the tension and make great money. Indeed, after this new moon appears, financial news could go from dark to bright. It won’t be easy to do—you will have to present a well-organized, persuasive case for VIPs to approve your suggestions, but you can be victorious. Mars will oppose Pluto on May 20, so you will get some strong pushback from a crusty VIP initially, but with Mars in a supportive angle to the Sun and new moon from your prestigious tenth house of professional recognition, you can persuade others to come to your side.
Venus rules Taurus and is being friendly to Uranus, indicating a non-traditional, innovative solution will be the path to rallying an agreement. As you come to the new moon on May 19, you can capture the job or client you want by displaying out-of-the-box creative thinking, for that’s what VIPs will be looking to see from you.
The most important element regarding this new moon is the arrival of Jupiter, the giver of gifts and luck, to Taurus, your eighth house of other people’s money, for the first time since the year spanning June 2011 to June 2012. You will go from stressing out about money to having plenty of chances to make considerable cash. Banks will work with you to offer a loan or mortgage, and if you need venture capital, investors will take you seriously. Working on commission, royalties, licensing fees, or bonuses will be your best way to increase your income. In other words, performance-based compensation should work in your favor.
