Passion is fuel for your emotional engine, but it could be burning so slowly in the first half of May that you barely notice the heat. Amorous Venus, the willful Sun, communicative Mercury and your assertive planet Mars are all moseying through placid Taurus when the month begins. Learning to warm yourself by a gentle fire of comfort and physical pleasure may not replace the excitement of heart-pounding romantic drama, but it should prove more satisfying in the long run.
Spicy conversations could be triggered on May 7, when Mercury joins Mars, but favorable alignments to this pair from deep Pluto can take discussions to a profound place of understanding and healing. If you've said or heard something painful, facing it in a mature way can turn a problem into an opportunity for self-awareness.
You don't need to stick to a commitment made on May 12, when Mars joins the karmic Lunar South Node in Taurus. Hanging on to a plan that won't fulfill your needs will only produce frustration down the road.
The adventurous Sagittarius Full Moon on May 24 falls in your 9th House of Travel and Higher Education, where it can arouse interest in someone in a faraway place or through school. If you're in a relationship, planning a trip together is not a distraction, but it could be exactly what you need to keep the feelings of romance alive.
