Due to Venus in your first house, your popularity will keep your calendar full. You may be spending more than usual on clothes and your personal appearance. This is actually a wonderful time to invest in a whole new style. However, avoid impulsive changes around the 9th, when Mercury conjuncts Uranus in your Sun sign, giving investments unpredictable results. After the 15th of May, money-minded Mercury moves into your second house of cash. This placement makes you a more discerning shopper. You’ll insist on quality and your powers of persuasion will be strong. You want a pricey item. But you’ll first justify the purchase, then convince others you shouldn’t pay what the price tag dictates. Libra in your seventh house not only helps you exude convincing charm, but also makes you a savvy negotiator. The Sun, also in Taurus until the 20th, will illuminate your extra-sharp skills in money matters.
