There is quite a buzz of activity moving around your family and home life. Your soul will be nourished by loved ones giving you attention and support when needed, and allowing you to lavish them with all the things they love...attention, laughter, cuddles, and maybe even some good food. The opportunities for deep connection are endless, and you should feel as if you hit the jackpot.
Happy Birthday month, Taurus! It has been quite a wild ride over the last several months. You are ready for some sense of normalcy to settle in. While you may not be adverse to change, you feel at your best when you can have some healthy routines left undisturbed. May will offer you a chance to settle back into a nice slow hum behind the scenes, while you will still have to deal with the buzz and activities on the surface. You know...grown up things.
Expect the unexpected is your mantra for the next seven years as Uranus continues to move through your sign, and this month offers some lovely surprises when it comes to what or whom you love, connection with your higher self, and creative pursuits. April should give you plenty of reasons to right whatever wrongs you feel have happened over the last few weeks, months, even years, as conversations and agreements will go in your favor. The balance of power is being restored to you, and you will begin to see how your determination and strength has served you well.
Of course the big talk of the town is Mercury, the planet of communication, connections, networking, learning, and all things mercurial in retrograde motion in the sign of Pisces the entire month of March. Let’s also not forget about our erratic, Great Awakener, and innovative planet Uranus is moving out of Aries and settling into Taurus for the next 7 years. This is a month I believe, that we will talk about for years to come. The last time that Uranus was in Taurus was from 1934-1942.
The month of love can stir up a bit of restlessness within, that may appear as if it is coming from nowhere. A need to expand your personal and professional life may be gnawing at your subconscious, and need an outlet. With Venus sitting in your house of long distance travel, learning, teaching, and foreign affairs, you may attract opportunities to connect with like-minded individuals who present you with work that will require travel or a chance to teach what you know.
Big changes are coming in 2019 and January may give you a taste of it. Many of you may move a far distance what you currently call home due to love or opportunity in a particular relationship. Some of you may not make a literal move, but expand your reach in relationships and partnerships due to a loved one being distant. If you are looking to connect with others of like mind in a bigger way, January can set the stage to support your connections and solidify relationships that are valuable to you in the long run.
December carries the theme of repair, renewal, rejuvenate, and energize. Mercury opens the month still in retrograde through Scorpio and Venus in the last degree of Libra. You may still be asking deep and penetrating questions of yourself, life, and your most important relationships. If you approach questions objectively, then you could gain significant advantages, not only over obvious and potential competitors, but also over some major life scenarios.
At the start of November, Mercury has moved into Sagittarius and within the second week begins its shadow period before moving retrograde on the 17th. He dips his toe in your 8th house before retrograding back into your 7th. Apparently whatever thoughts, connections, and conversations you thought you had with a partner, competitor, or legal entity will need to be revisited. Some of you may have an outstanding contract that has been hanging in limbo for some time, and of course, as “fate” would have it, you could feel forced to sign during the retrograde. Let me reiterate something here.
October should feel as if new life is being breathed into your lungs. You have had to focus on the more serious and mundane things of life. All work and no play has created a dull girl or boy, and you are ready to have some fun. This doesn’t mean your work, daily schedule, or health regimen will go away entirely, only that you will find more time this month to do something you love. You should also find that whatever routine has settled in there will be elements of lightness to the tasks.
Your hard work and putting up with a lot more than you probably felt you could handle is being rewarded. A few of you may receive the reward in big ways, but mostly I see sheer delight in the little things. Confirmation to some of your intuitive hits will be coming your way this month now that Mercury is moving direct again in your fourth house of home, roots, foundation, and emotional security. You may have felt a bit like a crazy person the last few weeks, maybe even months as your intuition or emotional body would receive information, but the reality hasn’t quite lined up yet.
