A pair of powerful eclipses lead you to reconsider long-term goals this month. On May 9, a conventional Taurus Solar Eclipse in your 4th House of Roots may cause you to take a step back from a home-based project or address a family matter that you thought was already settled. It's crucial that you firm up your foundation with a visionary Sagittarius Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in your 11th House of Dreams and Wishes on May 25.
Illusory Neptune's stressful square to the eclipse might attract you to an unrealizable goal or inspire you to invest more in a project that's already draining your resources. It's best to unburden yourself of unnecessary obligations, especially with the earthshaking Uranus-Pluto square on April 20. Save your strength to deal with unexpected emergencies or sudden opportunities that require your attention.
Your outlooks on life may be nourished with excitment this month -- or overstuffed with distractions that complicate decision-making. Vivacious Venus, curious Mercury, the willful Sun, and hyperactive Mars enter diverse Gemini and your 5th House of Fun and Play on May 9, 15, 20 and 31, respectively, presenting you with more options than you have time to indulge. Your attraction to a variety of activities and interests is enormously entertaining, but is likely to distract you from the real work of your daily life.
It's time for you to choose one direction on May 20, with dispersive Jupiter's third and final sesquisquare to steadfast Saturn. Commit yourself to one major goal by gathering your attention and pointing it in a singular direction. Doing so will advance your ambitions; failing to can keep you stuck where you are.
Keep in Mind This Month
Recognizing the difference between a passing interest and an enduring passion will help you to stop flirting with plans that have little likelihood of fulfillment.
