Overview: 2012 will be a very powerful year for you, Cancer, and May 2012 will only be a continuation of this trend. The constant presence of Mars, which has been with you for some months now, will continue on during until the middle of the month, but after that energy levels will begin to fall. On the other hand, your intuition and your emotions will be high and this will contribute towards an enhanced sense of self-confidence. Changes may be headed towards you and some of them might be quite unexpected. However, you'll be grounded enough to deal with these surprises and you'll have the mental clarity needed to conclude any projects or issues that had been put on the back burner. It is a time to move forward, Cancer, so make sure to make the most out of Mercury's influence from May 9th to 14th.
Career and Work: After the middle of the month, your energy levels will drop dramatically, since Mars abandons your sign, and you'll probably feel demotivated and not so keen on keep up with your responsibilities in the workplace. To fight back these negative feelings, try to focus on the things will truly like about your job and don't let the lack of productivity get to you. On the other hand, your mind will be clear and creative, which might give you a good cue to start thinking about plans and goals for the future. If you need to make a decision or to put yourself on the line, use Mercury's influence and make you move during the middle of the month.
Finances and Money: it isn't an excellent month for money, Cancer. Although you won't be confronted with unexpected expenses or shortage of cash, things will be pretty slow in this department. If you are expecting a smoother flow of income or gains, be patient, since this will only happen in a couple of months' time. Therefore, avoid making investments or risky moves: regarding finances and money, caution is the word for May 2012!
Love and relationships: Venus also plays an important part this month and you could blame this planet for wanting to spend more time than usual with your family and friends. Combine this trend with the coming into scene of Mercury at the end of the month and you'll be left with an irresistible urge to socialize and to spend time connecting with other people. Thus, interactions and even new contacts will be benefitted.
Health: the low energy you'll be feeling during this month is the result of a complex equation.

Relax, rest and try to eat healthy foods, while staying away from caffeine: these are the steps to take if you want to maintain higher energy levels in a natural way.
