While your birthday month ended last month, as it does at this time every year, as you move into the new month you are still not ready to commit to this new solar year and the journey ahead. And you can blame, or should that be thank Venus, your ruling planet for that. Until Venus leaves Taurus on 9th June, your heart is still having its turn in deciding what you want from the coming year. Because Venus is your ruling planet and the planet that rules through your heart, after the mechanics of getting your new solar year up to speed is over, it now comes down to knowing what you want from this new solar year. It is when Venus leaves Taurus on 9th June that she will join the Sun in your income sector, where as the planet of money she brings you to what are often the most lucrative weeks of any year. Held back by a retrograde phase last year, Venus has been lagging behind the Sun, which means she is late to arrive and therefore late to leave each area of your chart she visits. Venus only returned to Taurus in the final days of your birthday month, but she catches up with the Sun 13 days before he leaves your income sector. Venus will be here when the Sun is confronted by a Full Moon in your financial sector on 17th June. This is a Full Moon that falls here at around the same time each year, always at some point during the Sun's month long visit to your income sector. Yet this time you have the planet of luck on the financial side and the planet of money on the income side, turning this and any financial tension this might create, into an opportunity for a breakthrough on both fronts. Speaking of breakthroughs, there is plenty of potential for communication breakthroughs this month, with Mars in your communication sector all month and Mercury, the planet of communication here from 5th June to 27th June.
Week beginning Monday 24th of June 2019
In a week where there are a lot of major developments, especially in the lead up to next week's solar eclipse, you have a chance to not only get your personal bearings but get a better sense of what you are working towards. Uranus, the planet of surprise, synchronicity and the unexpected has been in Taurus for over three months now and with the Sun, Mercury, Mars, Juno and Venus having all moved through during that time, the journey to finding your personal truth is well underway. However, there is one last 'hanger on', a straggler who begins the week aligned with Uranus and in the process provides the final piece of the puzzle. It is the asteroid Vesta that gives you the work ethic to back up ideas and insights with the ability to walk the talk. Pay attention to ideas and even eureka moments at the start of the week, with a chance to process them more fully when the Moon returns to Taurus on Friday.
Monday 24th of June 2019
Every planet that has moved through your income sector this year and there have been a lot, have faced an opposition with Jupiter in your financial sector. The last opposition is playing running its course today and between Venus and Jupiter, this is the perfect way to cap this off. As Venus is the planet of money and Jupiter the planet of luck, this is one time when any pressure created could have positive implications on both fronts. Tap into the motivation this creates, as Venus works to make her final 10 days in your income sector count.
Taurus is the sign of patience, practicality and dedication and are sometimes seen as slow because of their great restraint and reticence, this is not a terrible thing! Taureans are strong but sensual and are lovers of everything that is natural, fine and beautiful.

Their ruling house in the zodiac is the second house which connects with our values and money

Taurus motto is: "I have"
Taurus colours are brown and turquoise and their birthstone is the emerald, believed to influence both positive and negative traits of the sign, but in particular it is associated in a positive way with loyalty and faithfulness.
