Dec 22 - Jan 19
Click daily, weekly or monthly for your horoscope
Whether you are an April or a May born Taurus, the greater part of your birthday month will play out this month and with the Sun not gone until 21st May, this is your chance to push the 'reset' button. Venus, the planet that gives your heart a voice as well as your ruling planet, not only left 16 days before the Sun returned to begin your birthday month and new solar year but had already spent a month here. That firebreak between the two was a chance for your desires and expectations and your wish list for the coming year to take hold, becoming the blueprint for this new solar year. Mercury, who returned late last month will only spend 14 days in Taurus this year and will leave on 12th May. This makes the first 12 days of the month an important time for making choices, decisions and plans for the coming year. However, as you now have Uranus in Taurus until 2026 and as the planet of surprise, synchronicity and the unexpected he will continue to develop more options, it is also important to keep your mind and your options open. When first Mercury and then the Sun leave Taurus it will be to return to your income sector, as happens every year. The difference this year is the extraordinary planetary activity already in play and how this plays into planetary activity on the job and career fronts. Part of the extraordinary activity is that Saturn' retrograde turn on 11th May and Venus' on 13th May will create a situation where the doors are open to the past, second chances and untapped potential across the income, work and career fronts. Part of that extraordinary activity on the income front is the North Node's return to your income sector on 5th May, creating a pathway forward just as Venus, the planet of money is creating a pathway to the past. At the same time its partner the North Node will return to your financial sector, where until January 2022 they will police a balance between money coming in and money going out.
Week beginning Monday 25th of May 2020
The Moon's departure from Taurus over the weekend and the Sun's departure two days earlier has not only brought your birthday month to a close but all the work that goes into getting a new solar year off the ground. With Venus and Mercury both been and gone you have had a chance to update your wish list and to make choices, decisions and plans. This is when the job of preparing for your new solar year ends and the job of embracing and living the journey begins. In the meantime, the Sun's first full week in your income sector is getting off to a stunning start. A New Moon over the weekend has already given new income potential the green light, at a time when the doors are open to the past, second chances and untapped potential across the income, work and career fronts. Meanwhile, this is also a good week for all aspects of personal and professional networking, with both communication support and a better appreciation of who you want and need in your life.
Wednesday 27th of May 2020
Over just the last 16 days three planets have turned retrograde but that trend reverses slightly as Juno turns direct in your work sector today. While only an asteroid, Juno has thrown her lot in with the big boys of the solar system and is part of a groundswell of influences across the income, work and career fronts. Juno turns direct while at a friendly aspect to the Sun, in his first full week in your income sector and in the process gives both income and job matters the green light.
Taurus is the second sign of the zodiac. A sensuous and tactile earth sign, ruled by the planet Venus. She was the Roman Goddess of Love, a beauty with a curvaceous figure, and a beautiful smile just like yours!
The symbol for Taurus is the bull, a magnificent, strong and normally placid beast, that will stand its ground with fortitude. These same qualities can be said of you. Normally placid, but not always!
Most of the time you're agreeable and adorable, but on those very rare occasions when someone pushes you too far, your temper can be explosive. We may have to wave a red flag at a bull for a long time before it charges, then we should get out of its way!
Bull-headed might apply to you, because once you make your mind up, all the persuasion in the world is not going to change it. If you're ever a bull in a china shop, it will most likely be because someone is hurrying you, not understanding that you need to do things at your own steady pace.
It may seem that you do things a little more slowly than others, but you apply yourself more thoroughly. The friend who reads a book and finishes it in a fraction of the time that it takes you, probably won't recall the details a year on, you will.
The mode of Taurus is fixed. In other words you need stability and may actively dislike, or feel uncomfortable with, any big or unexpected changes. You definitely prefer the devil you know to the one that you don't.
Venus gives you a love of luxury and material things. You like money, for the wonderful things it buys and the security it brings. You don't mind working hard if it means you can indulge yourself and your loved-ones. You'll choose quality over quantity every time!
Venus also gives you an appreciation of beauty and form. You have a good eye for art and a good ear for music. Your tastes are discerning and it's likely that you have your own musical, literary or artistic gifts. With that said, we're equally likely to find you working on a farm, or in a garden, florist, kitchen, bakery, accounts department or bank.
Taurus is the sign that rules our personal possessions. You can be possessive about those things which belong to you, and why shouldn't you if they're yours! Taurus rules farming, not just the bulls that inhabit it, and the foods that grow in the soil to sustain us.
You're a tactile person who delights in sensual pleasures. This makes you a lover of good food, and you probably know exactly the wine you'd like with it, and which dessert would be best to follow. You incline towards a sweet tooth, perhaps this is why the Venus figure is often depicted as slightly plump or well-rounded.
You get along best with the other earth signs, Virgo and Capricorn and with the water signs, Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces. Much of this will depend on the sign Venus was in at the time of your birth. It's never far from the Sun. If you're not sure and you'd like to be, one of our astrologers will be pleased to take your call.
