Patience is a must as May begins, dear Leo. Four planets in placid Taurus make relationships easier when you're able to pace yourself. Because these planets fall in your 10th House of Public Responsibility, you may need to spend more time and energy on your job than usual. Plan your schedule carefully and don't overload yourself with obligations that leave no time for your personal life.
Happily, loving Venus skips into playful Gemini and your 11th House of Friends on May 9, lightening the mood. Going out with a group of people or meeting someone through an organization can lead to a new connection during this transit. If you have a partner, working for a common cause will add a sense of purpose that enriches your relationship.
Communicative Mercury is fueled by potent Pluto on May 6, and it will be pumped up with passion, aggression and impatience as it joins Mars the following day. Act courageously to initiative contact and conversations.
Opportunities to expand your social network grow further when chatty Mercury enters your amicable 11th House of Friends on May 15. You can expand your networks, personal and professional, to plug into more people and ideas.
The need for more mental and social stimulation takes another step up when the Sun enters Gemini on May 20. You can shine in group situations, playing the confident leader and acting as the hub of your social wheel.
