May starts out on a mellow note, with your ruling planet Mercury entering easygoing Taurus and your 12th House of Privacy on May 1. While this may settle your mind and lead to some comforting conversations, it can also take you out of one or two of your social loops because you may seek more quiet time.
Loving Venus, passionate Mars and the Sun are also in Taurus and your 12th House of Privacy, which can reduce your availability to others. Getting attention is more difficult, but that might suit your need for more time alone. When you are with someone, though, the chances for intimacy grow when you don't feel pressured to put on a show. Relaxing in the quiet company of an undemanding person can reduce stress and increase trust, even if you don't have a lot to say to one another.
The pattern starts to shift on May 9, when alluring Venus moves into Gemini and your 1st House of Personality. This displays your charm and social grace, making you more appealing to others.
Your playful side becomes even more obvious (and attractive) as Mercury enters Gemini on May 15. Now you're talking, and you can back it up with even more warmth and creativity when the Sun shifts into Gemini on May 20. These are confidence-building transits that enable you to shine without obviously trying to impress people.
Venus and Mercury meet on May 24, kicking off a delightful weekend when you can flirt playfully or discuss complex issues with style and grace.
