TAKE IT EASY IN THE FIRST COU­PLE WEEKS OF MAY.

With Jupiter, Mer­cury, Mars, and Saturn in ret­ro­grade at the start of the month, now is the time to keep cur­rent clients happy, not chase new ones. Things will start to open up around the 6th, when a new moon in Taurus prompts you to start re­assess­ing your re­sources— both per­sonal and ma­te­rial. If that’s mak­ing you glum, hang on un­til the 9th, when risk-lov­ing Jupiter ex­its the house of penny-pinch­ing, de­tail-ori­ented Virgo. Armed with self-knowl­edge and with lucky Jupiter on your side, you should take ad­van­tage of this great time to make a play for the cor­ner of­fice or nail a pitch meet­ing. That said, with Mars, the planet of ac­tion and for­ward mo­tion, in ret­ro­grade un­til July, Q2 isn’t the best time to launch some­thing un­less you’re com­fort­able with it back­fir­ing or just grad­u­ally los­ing steam. To make mat­ters even more com­pli­cated, Jupiter faces off with Saturn, the planet of hard work and re­spon­si­bil­ity, on the 26th. When luck and dis­ci­pline are at odds with each other, the stock mar­ket is bound to take a hit, so keep an eye on your port­fo­lio un­til June 18, when the plan­ets dis­en­gage. On the bright side, this may also help you re­al­ize weak­nesses in your and your com­pany’s po­si­tions. What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.
