May 2012 Scorpio Career Horoscope

Focus on facts

Partnerships can be the critical issue in your work life this month. May starts with the Sun in earthy Taurus and your 7th House of Others where it can attract reliable allies. You may, however, find yourself saddled with individuals who are resistant to change.

Gentle persuasion will take you a lot further than resorting to a pure power play that's likely to lock you down completely. Presenting your ideas and beliefs within your organization or in reaching out to new customers, partners or employers works well when you set aside emotions and rely on facts. Keeping your statements simple and to the point avoids unnecessary complications.

On May 5 the Full Moon in your sign can bring powerful feelings to the surface. Although you may be tempted to express your dissatisfaction with others, this is really about making changes within yourself. You're in the spotlight then and complaining won't get you what you want. However, altering some of your own habits and ways that you address others can have positive long-term effects.

The Sun saunters into jaunty Gemini and your 8th House of Shared Resources on May 20. Flexibility is a must then as rapidly shifting conditions and working with individuals who think very differently than you requires a light touch. You may need to consider a wide variety of opinions and options, so be patient with those who aren't quick about making up their minds. Stretching your own thinking, on the other hand, should reveal unexpected opportunities to garner support and maybe even make more money.
