May 2012 Sagittarius Horoscope

It takes two

You just can't hide your enthusiasm for relationships with friendly Mercury in excitable Aries and your 5th House of Love and Creativity until May 9. Mercury forms a supportive sextile with affectionate Venus in engaging Gemini on May 3, inviting someone special to enter your life. The pragmatic Taurus Sun in your 6th House of Details emphasizes discipline and determination; yet small modifications to your lifestyle begin to have a positive impact on your well-being as the Sun moves toward a conjunction with prosperous Jupiter on May 13.

Meanwhile, the passionate Scorpio Full Moon on May 5 illuminates your 12th House of Secrets and opposes the Sun in your 6th House, revealing hidden motives that can complicate a liaison at work. Rational Mercury opposes ambitious Saturn on the same day, exposing your doubts and confronting you with an alternative point of view.

A past romantic interest may return, or a current one reignite, when loving Venus retrogrades in your 7th House of Partners from May 15 to June 27. This is also a time when you may need to wait for pleasure, or find it just out of reach. Fortunately, your common sense leads to a cautious approach to intimacy, increasing the likelihood of satisfaction as long as you keep your expectations realistic.

A flighty Gemini New Moon Eclipse on May 20 brings additional energy to your interactive 7th House, but its square to wistful Neptune can weaken your connection with another person if you confuse fantasies with reality. Mercury's conjunction with extroverted Jupiter on May 22 and its entry into your already busy 7th House on May 24 supply you with confidence and clarity, making this a good time to negotiate for what you want.

Keep in Mind this Month
Instead of trying to mold a relationship into something it isn't, accept the support and love that are offered to you just as they are.

Key Dates for Sagittarius

May 3-7: Reversal of Fortune
You may feel irritable on May 3 if someone challenges your ideas, but a lighthearted Mercury-Venus sextile supplies you with the finesse that lets you turn a problem to your advantage. Unfortunately, your good-natured charm may not carry you through the relationship difficulties that can surface on May 5, when conversational Mercury in your 5th House of Love opposes doubting Saturn in your 11th House of Community. It's hurtful if a close friend or lover cannot hear what you have to say. The brooding Scorpio Full Moon in your 12th House of Endings tempts you to walk away from an awkward situation, but a bolt out of the blue on May 7 can suddenly reveal a radical solution to the problem as broad-minded Jupiter aspects eclectic Uranus in your spontaneous 5th House.

SUPER NOVA DAYS
May 13-16: As Good as it Gets
The Sun's conjunction with your ruling planet, Jupiter, on May 13 falls in your 6th House of Health, gracing you with a joyful and optimistic attitude. You want to tell others how good you're feeling as Mercury the Messenger harmoniously trines physical Mars. In turn, Mercury and Mars trine resolute Pluto on May 14 and May 16, respectively, forming a practical Grand Earth Trine that empowers you to set goals and create an effective action plan. Don't give up if the finish line appears to recede when Venus turns retrograde on May 15. Exercise self-control and stick to your plan when an annoying Jupiter-Saturn quincunx on May 16 distorts your perspective on the future. The long-term significance of these days is not diminished, even if reaching your destination takes longer than you expect.
