The Stars This Week: May 6-12, 2013
Drama!

The week ahead brings a good deal of feisty energy, and you'll need to keep your wits about you if you hope to negotiate such a heated environment! First, on May 7, Mercury conjuncts Mars -- a duo known for being argumentative! These planets then proceed to conjunct the Taurus south node on May 9 and 12, respectively, when your past financial mistakes and triumphs all catch up with you! Love planet Venus enters curious Gemini on May 9, a transit that makes your relationships much more interesting! Just watch your spending as May 9 also brings a dramatic solar eclipse in Taurus!

Don't go throwing good money after bad, and try to avoid arguments entirely as communicator Mercury and warrior Mars come together before each conjuncts the Taurus south node. Mars heats up any planet it contacts, and in this case, since Taurus rules finances, money issues and problems are likely to become a trigger for heated discussions. Taurus is loyal but also stubborn, so trying to get people to change their minds now is just about impossible. One of the best ways to work with these aspects is to address any past mistakes or missteps, while also creating a new financial plan to help you get ahead. There's real potential here for coming up with a sensible, workable plan.

May 9: Venus enters Gemini
Each year, love planet Venus spends time in curious, talkative Gemini, giving you a chance to discover compelling information not only about matters of the heart, but about people you know ... or would like to get to know. In most years, a stimulating conversation is beneficial to all relationships. This year, however, due to the current Mercury - Mars - south node conjunction, tread carefully when broaching certain topics. Just keep in mind that these are the sort of discussions you perhaps need to have to keep your relationships fresh. Whatever you do, get out of the house and do something different and fun to spice up your love life!

May 9: Solar eclipse in Taurus
A solar eclipse, which always occurs at a new Moon, marks an especially dramatic and important beginning. With the past highlighted since this particular eclipse occurs at the south node, anything that requires your attention will be extra-obvious -- indeed, it's time to take care of certain things in your life that require attention! Place special focus on your finances, for an eclipse in earthy Taurus, the sign that rules values and your material life, shows that it's time to seriously consider how to go about building and maintaining a comfortable, secure life. Weigh the costs and benefits of your expenditures. Do you have enough money put away so you're prepared for the unexpected? The solar eclipse is joined by an argumentative Mercury-Mars conjunction, so be sure to carefully weigh your words before you speak!
