Cancer Career Horoscope for May 2014

Take initiative

Alluring Venus enters your 10th House of Career on May 2, putting your creativity and people skills on display this month. This planet of attraction, approval and charm is in audacious Aries, encouraging you to be bolder in presenting yourself and your ideas. It is a useful transit for demonstrating originality and initiative. Your ability to see into the future gives you a head start on coming up with projects that serve your current work situation or lead to a new job.

Of course, independent Aries is also favorable for being your own boss -- something you could do with a part-time business if you don't want to leave a more secure situation. Be patient, though, because assertive Mars is retrograde in your 4th House of Roots until May 19. Once Mars begins moving forward again, you're likely to feel more motivated internally, and you'll finally be able to build a solid platform from which to launch your professional aspirations.

Your ability to turn a losing situation into a winning one comes with the Scorpio Full Moon on May 14. It occurs in your 5th House of Self-Expression, enabling you to impress others with ideas that may have been rejected in the past. If you can find the passion to sell your plan or have a profound desire to reconnect with old creative interests, you are much more likely to be successful this time around.

The solar shift into jittery Gemini and your secretive 12th House of Privacy on May 20 is a signal to watch your back and make sure your supposed allies are really on your side.
