If you believe that work is worship, then no challenge can knock you down, no matter how difficult the situation may be. Victory seems to be yours as you strive to achieve success in whatever you do. Mercury, the planet of communication, will turn direct on May 5th, giving you enormous opportunities to connect with the right people. The challenge will still come from Jupiter and Saturn, which remains in retrograde for the complete month, slowing down your pace of progress.

Retrograde for Jupiter and Saturn do not mean that you will not reach your goals; however, it does indicate that there are still things that you need to focus on and sort out before you are successful. Remember that the fruits of labor are always sweet. Use this period to take time out to identify your weaknesses and work on them for the betterment of your future.

Two important planets Sun and Venus are exalted this month indicating name, fame and great time with friends. Overall, this May has great things for everyone, however, it is time to take things slowly and avoid doing too many things at once. Focus and concentrate on your goals. Address matters one by one for the best results.

SUN SIGN OF THE MONTH

 

Taurus (April 20 to May 20)

Taurus is the second sign of the Zodiac and Bull is its symbol. The Bull displays very prominently Taurus character and personality. It represents determination, strength, persistence and stubbornness. Venus rules this earthy and fixed sign. Taurus is also known for being practical, loyal and are highly dependable. As the ruling planet of Taurus is Venus, the goddess of beauty, the Taurus native are fond of art, music and are very creative by nature. They are fond of pleasure and want to make the best of life in every way. The not so good thing about them is that they are highly emotional, stubborn and sometimes lack flexibility.

As Taurus is the female sign of Venus, the Taurus born native will be charming, sensitive and have an attractive personality. As Venus is the planet of materialistic desires, those born under its sign are successful and wealthy through their own talents or through the great connections they can build. They are always cheerful and smiling and are remarkable when it comes to caring for others. That is why in a relationship they can be possessive at times about their partner.

As Venus is lord of Taurus, those born under this sign are gifted with some unique talents. Depending upon the strength and position of Venus, the talent may show in writing, painting, singing, cooking and even in their day-to-day work. Most Taurus natives will be practical and well organized.
