Libra Horoscope: May 2013
Flags of Freedom
You may feel pulled in two very different directions during the first half of the month. Brainy Mercury and the Sun are settled in stabilizing Taurus and your 8th House of Deep Sharing, testing your commitment to others. Prepare to compromise and accept the limits of predictability if you want reliable partnerships. Yet on May 9, magnetic Venus enters flirtatious and curious Gemini and your 9th House of Adventure, attracting you to new people and distant places.
The Taurus New Moon, also on May 9, is a Solar Eclipse that can undermine a financial alliance or a cozy personal connection. Its conjunction with the karmic Lunar South Node in loyal Taurus tempts you to hang on to someone even if you're not getting much from the connection. Let go; it's healthier than resisting change out of habit or a misplaced sense of obligation.
Mercury flutters into Gemini on May 15, filling your mind with so many interests that your thoughts become scattered. Then, on May 20, the Sun follows the messenger planet into the sign of the Twins and your focus makes a definitive turn away from placating others toward expanding your horizons. Education and travel are high on your list of priorities, and learning for the pleasure of it, rather than only to advance your career, is rewarding.
The third of seven Uranus-Pluto squares on May 20 sends deep shock waves through your personal life, reminding you that making a radical change might be your best option. The effusive Sagittarius Full Moon in your 3rd House of Communication on May 25 is a Lunar Eclipse square with Neptune, which can muddle messages or promote unrealistic thinking, so it's critical to discern the difference between facts and fantasies.
Keep in Mind This Month
Sticking with a relationship that has lost its juice will wear you both down in the long run. Bring new life to it or consider moving on.
Key Dates for Libra
May 24-26: Crazy Love
You can charm the birds out of the trees with a verbally compelling Mercury-Venus conjunction on May 24. Just be careful about what you ask for because forceful Mars in determined Taurus forms stressful aspects with controlling Pluto on May 25 and erratic Uranus on May 26 that are likely to complicate relationships. Sure, you may prefer to live in a dreamland with the Sun's square to drifty Neptune on May 26, but pragmatic Saturn's tense aspect to Venus requires restraint and realism.
SUPER NOVA DAY
May 28: Lucky Charms
This delicious day is brought to you by a generous conjunction of captivating Venus and cheerful Jupiter in your visionary 9th House. Cooking up plans for an inspiring trip or engaging in stimulating conversation links your head and your heart in delightful ways. Additionally, Venus and Jupiter form creative quintiles with brilliant Uranus in your 7th House of Others. If you have something to sell, this is an excellent time to make your pitch. Just don't overload your presentation with superfluous data. Keep it lively and entertaining for your intended audience.
