Overview: For the last couple of months, Mars has been a real inconvenience, draining all of your energy and making you feel nervous, anxious and flustered. And just when you think that you can't handle any more energy-draining days, in comes May with plenty of surprises in store, especially in the work department. In the back of your mind, you know that these changes need to happen, even if at first you try to fight them with every inch of your soul. Although Mars is still lurking around, the energy you'll feel throughout May 2012 will easily be directed to the construction of something important, both in your personal relationships and in your work environment. Moreover, you should make the most out of this positive energy and these changes and transform them into happiness. This should be easier after the middle of the month, since Pluto enters the scene to give you self-assurance and the ability to fight for what you want in your life.
Career and Work: although you've been feeling quite physically and emotionally drained, Mars will give you the energy you need to achieve more in the workplace during May 2012. You could have a slow start, but around mid-May, things will turn around and your productivity levels will probably increase and success and recognition will surely follow. It's a time of good surprises and progress, but make sure you direct your energy accordingly, especially at the end of the month; otherwise, you run the risk of coming across as aggressive or intolerant.
Finances and Money: with all the goodness flowing in your career and professional life, it's no surprise that the money issues will also be positively influenced this month. Pluto and Venus will play a vital role in this area, since they will join forces to create opportunities and more stable financial aspects. However, towards the end of the month, avoid making any big decisions, because Mercury may cast some confusion on business deals.
Love and relationships: Keep an eye out for any feelings of anger and aggression, since these could really take a toll in your personal relationships. Don't take remarks personally and especially don't blow them out of proportion, because you may easily perceive them as personal attacks or negative criticism. The greatest advice is really to refrain from taking part in any form or shape of conflict, especially because your friends and family may be feeling a little left out since work seems to be occupying your mind. Mercury could also cause some chinks in this department, particularly at the end of the month, and making you feel touchy and quick-tempered.
Health: all the tiredness and overworking may take a heavy toll in your immune system, so please make sure you take the right steps to strengthen your overall health. The accumulated stress and tension could also result in some back pains, so take time to unwind by the pool or to take a trip to the ocean.
