Our personal relationships, value-system, and cutting cords with people, places, and experiences that no longer serve us are the major themes for May.
May is a month full of conflicting energy which could feel as if we are stepping on the breaks and the gas pedal at the same time. There is much progress to be made, but there is also a lot to consider which might place many of us in difficult positions. We may be called to let something go, or to focus on where we should further invest our energy into projects formulated in the prior months.
Those who have done the work required in April will be raking in the rewards during May. However, further effort is required to secure and stabilize what we have built.
Here are the major planetary highlights for the month of May:

ARIES SUN OR RISING
Look before you leap, Aries. While Taurus season does create a major slow down for you, things are likely to pick back up later in the month after the Sun moves into Gemini. However, despite this slow down, you are still pumped and ready for action. You must be careful though – as you can easily become blind sighted by using a tunnel-vision type focus in the pursuit of your goals. You might not really care about the obstacles or challenges that are on your path, because you’re confident that you’ll surmount them. This determined attitude of yours can easily get the job done, but it can also cost you in the long run if you’re not paying any mind to those minor details that do require your attention. You might also face some adversity this month in terms of your coworkers or personal relationships, trying to hold you back or pull you down because they either don’t understand what you’re trying to obtain, and what it means to you, or they are competing with you. The other cards and planetary placements in this month’s reading will help align you with the right opportunities and steps to take, so to ensure success. Read more.
