The keyword for this month is "fertility," so it's a good idea to think about what you want to grow in the garden of your life. Starting with a gorgeous New Moon in Taurus on May 4, focus your most determined efforts on creating something tangible and beautiful in your world that has true staying power. Practical matters including money, cultivating one's talents, and the sensual pleasures of life are front and center. Add to that Venus moving through Taurus from May 15 - June 8, and you start to see just how physical the planets will be! The motivation to create emotional and family security will also be paramount, from May 15 - July 1, as Mars moves through tender Cancer.
A Full Moon in Scorpio on May 18 will remind you of that delicate balance in this physical world. Although it's wonderful to have possessions, you can't take them with you when you leave. Spend time focusing on your more intimate connections with those closest to you and how those relationships really are what sustains your body and soul.
When it comes to romance, you're all about physical demonstration after May 15 once Venus enters Taurus. You need your partner to show you what he or she is made of.
