The Stars This Week: May 5-11, 2014
Mixed Messages!

Opportunities are plentiful this week as the Sun sextiles Jupiter on May 6! Just watch out for others who might want to challenge you once the Sun opposes Saturn on May 10. Mercury's entrance into Gemini on May 7 brings you valuable new information, although when Mercury squares Neptune on May 11, people may get a little loose with telling the truth. Also on May 11, you'll need to sort out your relationships as Venus and retrograde Mars oppose one another.

May 6: The Sun sextiles Jupiter
May 10: The Sun opposes Saturn
Be on the lookout for opportunities to further your plans and goals as the practical Taurus Sun receives this helpful aspect from Jupiter in compassionate Cancer. A benefactor may be willing to invest in you, but you'll need to carefully assess the advantages and disadvantages of your projects as the Sun opposes Saturn in Scorpio. Consider what's moving you forward ... and what's holding you back. Any decisions involving your finances will require careful analysis.

May 7: Mercury enters Gemini
May 11: Mercury squares Neptune
It's time to get your ideas out into the world and make new connections. The knowledge you seek is available as Mercury brings an information bonanza. Cast a wide net so you can gather what you need to know from a variety of sources. This is a wonderful transit to not only connect with interesting people, but also read articles, launch a newsletter, or become more involved in social media. However, you'll need to make sure you separate fact from fiction as communication-ruling Mercury squares Neptune four days after entering Gemini! Use common sense and double-check your facts to help yourself sort out conflicting statements, as well as suss out anyone who isn't telling the truth. Mercury will remain in Gemini until May 29.

May 11: Venus opposes Mars
When the planets of love (Venus) and desire (Mars) contact each other, your relationships are sure to get plenty of attention! Since Mars is retrograde, be ready for people from your past to contact you for a second look. While this is a good time to reconnect with someone with whom you'd like to mend fences, this is not a good time to make any far-reaching relationship decisions.
