Putting your aspirations on a solid foundation is a key to professional success this month. You might not get immediate results, but coming up with a practical plan and finding the patience and discipline to stick to it is vital. Doing what you can to simplify your life, on the job and off, helps to clear your mind and establish your priorities. Four planets in earthy Taurus and your 4th House of Roots signal the need to become more settled in yourself and in your habits to create the stability you need to fulfill your professional potential. Just find a comfortable pace and stick to it.
You will begin picking up speed on May 9 when appealing Venus skips into clever Gemini and your 5th House of Creativity and Performance. This increases your capacity to entertain others, which is reinforced on May 15 when brainy Mercury makes the same shift. Your imagination and gift of gab can hit an even higher level as the Sun enters Gemini on May 20.
Now you are fully ready to play by sharing your unusual insights and original ideas. Showing a sense of humor without being silly is a plus. The second half of May is a great time to demonstrate your versatility. Your capacity to multi-task and your willingness to jump in and tackle jobs that aren't in your primary area of expertise should earn you some appreciation. The last two weeks of May, though, may feel just a little shaky as your explosive ruling planet Uranus makes a stressful square with potent Pluto, provoking rebelliousness on your part.
