There is little danger of life becoming all work and no play when Mars leaves a playful part of your chart and returns to your busy work sector on 4th October, despite the fact that the solar spotlight is already on your work situation, job matters and options. Mars spent the final days of last month at a friendly aspect to Pluto in and adventurous part of your chart, with the planets of war and revolution having come together to declare war on a life that was all work and no play. That Pluto will turn direct during Mars' first full day sends a clear message that he will carry the torch for both of them. However, Mars' return to your work sector for the first time since 2017 does kick off what could be the busiest two months of 2019, with the warrior planet of the cosmos not believing in half measures. The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of October in your work sector, so the solar spotlight is always on work and job matters at this time of year. At the same time, while Mercury will leave on 3rd October, a day before Mars returns and Venus six days later, they allow you to start the month with heart and head in the game from the get go. They are the planets that got things moving on the job front last month, but as they leave to focus more on your relationships the Sun and Mars can take over from where they leave off. For Mercury, his return to your relationship sector on 3rd October should be the start of a short 14 to 15 day visit that gives the planet of communication a chance to open the communication lines. Instead, a retrograde turn at the end of the month will keep Mercury here for two months, with Venus' return on 9th October keeping the planet of love here until early next month. By the time the Sun returns later in the month, Venus and Mercury will once again have given you a head start. In the meantime, with Jupiter moving into his final two months in your financial sector on 3rd October, there is an increasing chance for financial growth and movement.
Week beginning Monday 21st of October 2019
In a week where the Sun begins the week in your busy work sector but ends the week in your relationship sector, something that happens at this time every year, there will be no major shift from one to the other. The only difference is where the solar spotlight is directed, with a chance to highlight all your options on the job front before handing the reins over to Mars midweek. This is the point in most years when the pace drops back on the job front or with the things that keep you busy but instead, it is likely to increase and Mars takes the lead. In the meantime, as the Sun turns the solar spotlight onto your relationships midweek it will be to find Venus and Mercury, the planets of love and communication already there. After their clashes with Uranus in Taurus last week, the Sun will also return to find that you already know what you want from your relationships and what they need from you.
Wednesday 23rd of October 2019
Knowing that Mars will stay on for another four weeks after he leaves your busy work sector tomorrow, the Sun is using his last full day here to provide awareness. While the solar spotlight is still on your work situation, matters and options there is a chance to simply observe. From tomorrow Mars will be on his own and as the planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos he will be impatient to make things happen. Before things take a busy turn, make the time to simply observe, with the Sun able to give you an authentic starting point.
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. They have great sense of harmony, rhythm and colour making them well suited to a career in music, poetry or art. In love they're generous to the last and will sacrifice all in its name
They are also keen - witted and have good business minds. They are often known to be genius at juggling finances and many go into careers such as accountancy. Interestingly, Taureans can make great magicians! As they can tune into other peoples' feelings and surroundings without even realising and can read between the lines well. But they have a true love for harmony and a divine sense of spirituality. They also love spending time in the home, making things look beautiful and adore creature comforts and therefore tend to indulge in good food and wine. The earthy quality of Taurus naturally makes them want to spend time in pleasure activities such as gardening, walking or even building.
Their ruling house in the zodiac is the second house which connects with our values and money
They can often appear quiet and aloof but underneath the surface they are serious and committed. They can also be surprisingly possessive and jealous.
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. Taureans have a lust for the finer things in life and have been known to overindulge!
Vulnerable parts of the body are the neck, throat, shoulders and torso; because of this, stiff necks, sore throats and earaches are common aliments.
Taureans are most compatible with other earth signs: Virgo and Capricorn and compatible but to a lesser extent with the water signs: Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces.
