Friends and organizations are keys to your social life during the first half of May. The life-giving Sun, passionate Mars, brainy Mercury and alluring Venus are all in easygoing Taurus and your 11th House of Groups when the month begins. You should be able to rely on pals and colleagues to increase your opportunities for meeting someone new or adding more excitement to your current relationship. Working for a cause is a great way to add more meaning to your life and to be involved with someone who shares your ideals and values.
Yet on May 9 the New Moon in Taurus is a Solar Eclipse that could lead to some challenges with allies. Holding on to someone who is unwilling to change isn't necessarily a great idea. Just getting by in a relationship keeps you from gaining the deeper satisfaction you desire, so you may have to let go of a person who is OK to find someone who is great for you. Your observational skills sharpen starting on May 9 as evaluating Venus enters objective Gemini and your 12th House of Secrets.
Mental Mercury makes the same transition on May 15, as does the Sun on May 20. The presence of these planets in the most private are of your chart could leave you feeling like you're on the outside looking in. But this position helps you to get a more strategic view of your situation. A little emotional distance allows you to set sentiment aside and recognize partnership patterns that are often obscured by feelings.
