May 2012 Cancer Career Horoscope

Take a supporting role

Being a good team player is a must until May 20 with the Taurus Sun in your 11th House of Groups. Staying steady in support of colleagues can contribute to your professional success. It helps, of course, to work with people who care about what they're doing and who know how to cooperate for the good of all. Avoid stubborn people or getting caught in a rut yourself. Diversifying your tasks and responsibilities can make life much more interesting for you. This can also demonstrate versatility that makes you a more valuable employee or boss.

The intense Scorpio Full Moon provokes expressing yourself with greater passion on May 5. This emotionally charged event occurs in your creative 5th House of Self-Expression, which is good for making effective presentations. However, there's no faking your feelings, which makes it impossible to effectively sell something in which you don't believe. This could, though, reconnect you with creative impulses or practices that you haven't done in a long time.

On the other hand, your sensitivity to the comments and opinions of others can also be high. Just don't allow negative feelings to overpower your desire to demonstrate your talents. You could become more reserved when the Sun shifts into heady Gemini on May 20. This transit occurs in your secretive 12th House of Privacy, making you more comfortable in a supporting role than as a star. You may occasionally jump into the spotlight, but only for a short time before retreating in search of the peace and quiet you desire.
