May 2012 Libra Love Horoscope

Change is in the air

Confusion can rule relationships this month with your amorous ruling planet Venus turning retrograde on May 15. This backward cycle will last six weeks, adding complications to your personal life, but also giving you a chance to go back and alter unrealistic commitments or to rethink romantic plans.

It's helpful to stay flexible under these conditions because hearts and minds can change so quickly. While discussions could help you improve a current alliance or give you a fresh perspective on yourself, too much talking can turn you in circles that don't lead you anywhere. So make sure your discussions are illuminating experiences that open your mind instead of roundabout conversations that take you in circles.

The month begins with the Sun in sensual Taurus and your 8th House of Intimacy, which rewards you with pleasure when you're not in a hurry. You could attract a stubborn individual or find yourself in a stalemate over money, sex or control with your current partner. Making up your mind, especially regarding critical partnership issues, could be difficult until Venus turns forward in late June. Just be extra careful before making major moves. Your mind is likely to change rather easily during this period, so avoid asking too many people for their opinions.

The Sun's shift into chatty Gemini and your 9th House of Travel on May 20 can increase your interest in faraway places and people from different cultures. A little escape to exotic environments and unfamiliar places nearby can add zest to your private affairs now.
