Financial partnerships are especially important this month. May starts with four planets in your 8th House of Shared Resources. Managing others' time, money and energy effectively can make the difference between being successful and just getting by. It's necessary to be realistic in your assessment of people, avoiding those whose flashiness hides their lack of substance. These planets are transiting through grounded Taurus where simplicity and directness are needed to provide a clear picture of a working alliance. You might, though, be dealing with a boss who is resistant to trying out new ideas, but it's best to pace yourself and patiently work toward opportunities for change that are not quite ready.
The Taurus New Moon on May 9 is a Solar Eclipse that can radically alter your assessment of a work partner. Getting by without serious problems may be setting too low a standard. This eclipse suggests that if you're willing to move on from a person or situation that is only adequate, you can discover ways to achiever higher levels of success somewhere else. Loyalty is usually a good thing but not when it keeps you from fulfilling your professional potential.
Happily, your magnetic ruling planet Venus flits into flexible Gemini and your 9th House of Faraway Places on the same day. The likelihood for favorable travel experiences or meetings with people in faraway places grows even stronger when clever Mercury and the creative Sun make the same shifts on May 15 and 20. While connections and bright concepts grow, making the best choice among several options will be your test.
