May 2012 Libra Career Horoscope

Double-check your data

The Sun is in steady Taurus and your 8th House of Deep Sharing until May 20. This can attract stubborn partners who challenge you to stand up for yourself. Being clear about your values, needs and expectations is essential to provide the stability required to hold your ground. Building a valuable professional alliance is the payoff for demonstrating consistency, reliability and resourcefulness.

Yet progress may be erratic after Venus turns retrograde on May 15. The backward turn of your alluring ruling planet can complicate working relationships during the next six weeks. People may provide incomplete or unreliable information, especially when they're overly enthusiastic. Your belief in a person or project can cause you to be careless about some key details so double-check data before passing it along.

Finances grab your attention with the intense Scorpio Full Moon on May 5 that lands in your 2nd House of Resources. Fear could drive you to buy something you can't afford or to underestimate your worth, yet a deeper assessment of your talent and experience can raise your self-esteem. Being nice is, well, nice, but it's not what's needed to deal with any crises arising at this time.

The lure of travel could grab you when the Sun skips into Gemini and your 9th House of Faraway Places on May 20. This is also the day of the New Moon in this intellectually curious but often scattered sign. It can excite your mind about professional possibilities that are inspiring but require a strong dose of discipline to make them real.
