Your May Horoscope for Sagittarius
Sometimes you must give up a client or project at eclipse time because it is “eclipsed out” of your life to make room for new and more relevant ones. When that happens to me, I am always glad if it turns out to be a marginal project that I worked on for a long time but not one I was overly attached to. I call that type of situation (when the eclipse removes a stable element in my life) a sacrificial lamb.
Situations and relationships have shelf lives of their own, and when their periods of relevance are over, they reach their sell-by expiration dates. It is the natural law of attrition. I am not saying you will have to necessarily give up a job or client to get something better, I am saying you might. Uranus is arriving arm in arm with the Sun and the new moon, making the eclipse unpredictable. Eclipses bring fresh chapters though, so go with the spirit of it all. The part of you that makes you so lovable is the consistent buoyant optimism that you possess through thick and thin.
Instead of a project or client, you might lose a trusted assistant or team member when one suddenly announces a departure. I know that can be distressing, especially when news is unexpected or during a time when you are super busy at work and home, and you expected all hands on deck. I know training someone can be an overwhelming thought, so maybe you can ask the person who is leaving to help you with that. When talking about a member of the team, it could also be someone you hire at home, such as a nanny or housekeeper. Home or work, losing a helper feels the same.
Once you begin interviewing applicants, you will find someone special to replace that person who is leaving. You may not be able to get all the qualities that the person who is leaving possesses, but the new person will have most of them plus other talents he or she will bring to the table that you didn’t know you needed and that could be quite helpful.
