Overview: May puts an end to the nagging influence of Mars, which has been around you for quite some time now. But even so, this will only become true on the 19th, which is immediately followed by the Sun Eclipse in May 20th. And talk about change! The pent-up frustration, anger and nervousness give place to lots of extra energy, confidence and joire de vivre. You feel the world changing around you and you want to take part of this new world; in fact, you'll be so creative and full with ideas that you may even feel a bit overwhelmed. At the end of the month, Mercury enters the scene to bring new positive interactions and some good news.
Career and Work: this month, you'll have the ability to impress everyone around you with your creative ideas and innovations. However, you may find some resistance to those changes around the workplace, particularly until the end of the month, when Mercury steps in to give you a little help with your interactions and communication skills. Instead of feeling brought down or angry by these remarks, try to put yourself in their shoes and make sure you're not stepping on anyone's toes. Write down your plans and relax: they will become true!
Finances and Money: Venus also represents a very positive influence in money matters; this does not mean that money will fall unto your lap, though. Nevertheless, you will have the mental clarity (particularly if you combine this with the influences of Mars and Mercury) to make good and solid financial decisions, which could help dealing with some of your current worries. You're headed towards a better path, but you need to have learnt from the mistakes of the past and be patient about your future.
Love and relationships: Venus will be around you throughout the month, so expect to feel extra romantic and clingy. This influence requires you to be on your toes, though: your partner and your relationships may feel somewhat smothered by all this constant need for love and affection. Whatever you do, avoid conflicts at all costs, since things may not end well for you, Gemini. Instead of picking fights or throwing tantrums, make use of this romantic state to analyze your relationships and express your conclusions to your loved ones. If you're single, make sure you maintain your high standards and don't fall into the arms of the first stranger just because you're in the mood for love.
Health: the past few months of stress and anxiety will take their toll in May 2012. You may feel reinvigorated after the Solar Eclipse on the 20th, but until then you may feel a bit scattered and fatigued. Even after that, your mind will be so ripe with ideas that you could end up feeling like you were caught up in a whirlpool. To relax and to catch your breath once again, plan a weekend away from everything and your energy levels will be restored.
