TAURUS RULER VENUS MOVING RETROGRADE
19 December Venus moves Retrograde in Capricorn You may need to re-evaluate your plans and strategies for success, especially if they are not working to your best advantage. It could be that they are under-achieving or falling short of expectations because they are not drawing attention to your finest features. Maybe they are failing to promote your abilities and employ your talents to their highest potential. This needs to be rectified to ensure you gain the credit you deserve.
PLANETS IN TAURUS
Uranus in Taurus unpredictable Uranus creates random events which rampage through your comfort zones in a series of unsettling upheavals. No sooner have you got used to one set of adjustments then the goalposts are moved yet again, leaving you in a state of exhausted perplexity. Thank goodness that your fundamental nature is calm and strong, which enables you to take this time of constant shifts in your stride. Your main problem is your tendency to resist change, because it makes you feel so disoriented. You don’t see the point of doing things differently unless there is a very good reason. Even so, you would be better to embrace the idea that some sort of evolution has to happen in order to avoid stagnation and decay.
14 January Uranus moves direct in Taurus Perhaps it isn’t change itself that you dread, but rather the chaos it can cause. Once you figure out how to deal with it constructively and turn it into a positive advantage, you will feel much more relaxed. You just need time to acclimatise to the new situation or set of circumstances. You do not trust things that are forced through, without due diligence and preparation. In your experience, it is this unnecessary hurry that causes chaos and unrest which then has to be calmed down. You could well be proved right when Uranus moves Retrograde in Taurus on 20 August.
You are being offered some good, solid support through the first part of the year with the following planetary influences moving into your sign.
6 January Mars moves into Taurus, which is great for helping you to focus your energy on re-building any damaged structures and laying foundations for a more natural and fulfilling lifestyle moving forward.
19 April Sun & Mercury move into Taurus When you accept that you are quite capable of providing the basic materials that can make your life as comfortable and secure as you need it to be, the stress levels start to drop. If you stop and think about it – it is the simple things of life that are usually the most satisfying and enjoyable and which bring the strongest sense of contentment.
PLANETARY SUPPORT FOR TAURUS
Longer term support flows to you from Pluto in Capricorn, which is helping you to cope with these challenging times of transition, by empowering your natural levels of patience and endurance. However frustrated you become with a process that seems to be teetering on the brink of self-sabotage and destruction, you can sense the potential for re-birth and re-generation in the longer term. This is particularly so for those of you born in the last 10 days of your sign.
Neptune in Pisces is helping Taureans (particularly those of you born in the 2nd ten days of your sign) to embrace their artistic abilities. You could be seeing things in your dreams that inspire you to pick up a paintbrush or enrol in your local choir! Most of you are blessed with tangible talents as you have a natural love of beauty and an appreciation for harmony of sound, colour and form. You can take something very simple and add value to it, while staying true to its original qualities.
The ethereal effects of Neptune are enhanced and expanded by Jupiter moving into Pisces on 13 May for a couple of months and returning for a longer stay at the end of 2021. You may find that your intuition is much stronger, and the sense of being guided by information from your imagination becomes more tangible and true. Normally, Taureans are not keen on airy-fairy insubstantial stuff and rightly so. They prefer to draw a firm line between make-believe and 3D reality. But it is via your natural senses that you can combine visualised and actualised beauty. And yours is the zodiac sign which could be coming up with simple, practical solutions to situations that are currently causing wide-spread panic and stress.
PLANETARY CHALLENGE FOR TAURUS
Jupiter & Saturn are in Aquarius which, initially at least, is not going to be very comfortable for you. The status quo is shifting which means out with the old and in with the new. It means letting go of stuff that has passed its sell-by date and making space for something that is still very much an unknown quantity. Taureans prefer to stick with the tried and tested and they would rather hold on to what they value and what has already proved its worth. But these times are world-changing, and you will not be able to stop their progress. Use their revolutionary energy to make major alterations in your own life by releasing your attachment to anything or anyone you no longer need or wish to have around you. Simplify your space, free up your energy so you can spend it on what really matters to you.
Chiron & Eris in Aries these are long-term, background influences which are most likely to cause problems and create conflicts that affect you indirectly. Even so, they are sources of stress in your life. While it is better to accept that there is nothing you can do to solve or stop them, you can ensure that your own security, health and happiness are protected as far as possible.
TAURUS LIFE PATH JOURNEY
The North Node in Gemini and South Node in Sagittarius are another background influence in your life which may not impinge upon you at a personal level. But you can still tap into their potential to ease your progress along your Life Path journey. Their message for the moment is to keep moving forward one stage at a time rather than trying to go too far, too soon, before you are ready. You need to master your times tables before you can expect to take a degree in quantum mechanics! Read more about the Nodes, and their influence in your birth chart.
NEW & FULL MOONS IN TAURUS & YOUR OPPOSITE SIGN SCORPIO
27 April Full Moon in Scorpio You could have a sense that you have reached the end of a significant phase in your life, and that a mission has been accomplished or completed. Perhaps things have been very challenging or complicated and you have earned a well-deserved rest. It is now time to relax and replenish your energy.
11 May New Moon in Taurus Set your intentions on starting something which is designed to deliver high-quality results. This is a good time to sow seeds for projects that may grow rather slowly but which ultimately will be well made and built to last.
04 November New Moon in Scorpio Set your intentions on starting something which will help to transform situations that are seriously in need of regeneration. They may appear lifeless, but – like a neglected garden – under the surface of the soil lie the seeds of renewal and rebirth.
19 November Full Moon in Taurus (Partial Lunar Eclipse) Something you have been building for a while may be nearing completion, but the final stages could take longer than expected. Don’t withdraw your commitment, as it should become clear why you had to wait for results which might be even better than you had originally anticipated.
