Leo

The sun, your power planet, gets into a sextile with dreamy Neptune on May 8, increasing your sensitivity and compassion. Your perfect match is someone you can sympathize and empathize with who also shares a love of all things charitable and humanitarian.

Deeply intense passionate experiences are possible during the sun-Pluto retrograde trine on the thirteenth, especially if you know your partner on a very intimate level. Getting to know someone new isn’t a trivial matter. Your questions are probing.

The sun moves into intelligent Gemini on May 21, and your conversational skills improve. Your flirting skills are appreciated by a current partner or someone you want to get to know better, but you’re also able to easily engage in conversations that go beyond the basics.

A sun-Mercury conjunction in earthy Taurus on that same day increases your mental ability, but you might tend to overthink certain romantic situations. Can you recall the details of the last interaction you had with your partner or date? If it was positive, you don’t have much to worry about. If it was less than ideal, spend some time thinking about what you can do differently next time.
