Even if you know the solution to someone's problem today, be careful about how you offer your advice. Be sensitive, and try not to come across as a know-it-all. Getting up on a soapbox is just going to make this person defensive. Instead, guide him or her to the answer with questions—for instance, you might ask, "What would you tell me if I had this problem?" Empathy is a wonderful tool for learning how to make better decisions.
GeminiMay 21 – Jun 20
If you don't take charge, who else will? You're surrounded by intelligent people, people who could do anything if they put their minds to it. But what they don't have is initiative, a leader, someone to inspire them to greatness. That's where you come in. No one's saying it's going to be easy – Wednesday and Thursday are full of examples of what can go wrong with a project – but you love a juicy challenge. On Friday, you're meeting a lot of people, and your current quandaries give you something to talk about. You're nothing if not social on Saturday, and Sunday is a day of real progress.
The Mercury-Saturn retrograde square on May 1 gives you purpose for the month. Things won’t always be easy, but your perseverance can put you ahead of the competition. Working harder instead of smarter isn’t ideal, but it will get you where you want to go.
Your home planet Mercury enters stubborn Taurus on the sixth, so you might find yourself arguing more than usual. How important is it to get in the last word? The Bull’s patient energy doesn’t mind waiting until the time is right!
Powerful Mars enters the moody waters of Cancer on May 15, so taking the direct approach won’t be your first consideration. Avoiding confrontation is your goal even if it means missing out on something you really want.
The powerful sun enters your inquisitive sign on the twenty-first, so you’ll be extremely curious about the world for the coming month. Asking questions like who, what, where, when, and why will give you the answers you’re looking for, but you’ll have to go below the surface to find out the details you’re really curious about.
Mercury enters your sign on the same day, so you’ll feel comfortable talking to anyone and everyone. You love the possibilities that come from talking to a stranger!
