Sagittarius Horoscope: May 2013

Gone With the Wind

Evaluating your contentment, or lack thereof, with personal and professional partners challenges you to step back from your daily distractions to take a longer range view of your relationships this month. The most significant astrological event is the Sagittarius Full Moon Eclipse on May 25, which falls in your 1st House of Personality. Every major decision is fraught with uncertainty, which is why adaptability is essential now. 

You try to lock into a steadier routine at work when the dependable Taurus New Moon on May 9 activates your 6th House of Habits. Your desires for constancy and security are strong, yet this lunation is a Solar Eclipse that's more about altering patterns than holding on to them. Fortunately, your capacity to skillfully shift gears is supported by a slew of planets entering adaptable Gemini and your 7th House of Others. 

Sociable Venus starts the parade on May 9, followed by verbal Mercury on May 15, the willful Sun on May 20, and mobile Mars on May 31. Making connections should come easily now, but being discriminating about who you share your time and energy with is critical. 

The long-lasting Uranus-Pluto square that began on June 24, 2012, and repeats on May 20 emphasizes your 5th House of Play and can act like a lightning rod that attracts exciting people into your life. Fascinating individuals can be like shiny objects that grab your attention but have little real value. A career-shaping Jupiter-Saturn sesquisquare, also on May 20, reminds you to think strategically instead of overreacting to immediate events.

Keep in Mind This Month

You must prioritize your long-term goals to avoid those fleeting temptations that look good in the moment ... but don't have the substance to fulfill your dreams.

Key Dates for Sagittarius

May 2: Talk Is Cheap

You're popping with bright ideas and enjoying lively conversations today while chatty Mercury forms an energetic semisquare with buoyant Jupiter. However, you run the risk of turning one small factoid into a bigger story than is necessary. Making mountains out of molehills isn't productive and could become rather costly. It's great to open your mind to new ideas as long as you don't compromise your ability to critically evaluate them.

SUPER NOVA DAYS

May 27-28: Sweet as Sugar

Mercury's conjunction with magnanimous Jupiter gives greater impact to your words on May 27. You seem to have plenty of information to share without coming across as a know-it-all. Lovely Venus's conjunction with propitious Jupiter on May 28 continues a positive people trend because you're able to gain appreciation from others and draw interesting individuals into your life. Be wary, though, of someone who chatters all the time and isn't very good at listening. The compliments you hear are flattering, yet they may be lacking in sincerity. Flirting and teasing are sweet pastimes now, but only have the staying power of cotton candy.
