Follow your instincts

Think big

Explore partnership potential

What are you drawing down towards you this week, Taurus? Well, I can tell you at the very least you are set to attract potential – and freedom. The Sun’s in your 2nd from this week onwards so expect a month-long focus on your money, possessions and values. Where is your ruler Venus who also rules this house? In your 3rd of business, work and commercial activity. Think big when it comes to what you can do or achieve now. What  I can tell you is that your gut instincts are very strong.  So follow these now  especially in relation to any kind of moves on the work front.

There’s also partnership potential in the air thanks to Mercury in your 1st aligning with Jupiter and Neptune. This could bring an opportunity to flirt with a new union. This may not necessarily be a romantic one as we are talking all kinds of potential relationships including friendships and working ones. While the banter may start off light, chances are behind all this you’re seeking something serious and probing to see whether or not the connection has this potential. Take your time. This can be a time of building something solid for you but it means expanding on something you have already set in motion rather than starting something new.  Opportunities especially around your income can appear as if by magic if you have laid the right foundation. This is just one more example of what you can draw down towards you this week, Taurus.

monthly horoscope

Break free from restrictions

Who do you want to be with?

You’re wide awake and dreaming – at the same time!

The Sun remains in your sign until the 21st and this year marks the start of a birthday season like no other, Taurus. If you regularly read your forecasts you will have identified a theme that has been running through then for the past few months. And that’s bowing to the inevitability of change. Hopefully you recognised this and have set changes in motion. If not, hang on to those horns, Taurus because the season of change is now upon you like no other you have experienced in this lifetime as this month Uranus arrives in your sign.

It’s time for a personal revolution that is going to go hand-in-hand with a powerful awakening. And provided you have at the very least acknowledged the need for change on an inner level, this need not necessarily be a rude one. First and foremost, it’s about identifying what has become a burden or shackles you to something that is lived out and worn out in every conceivable way. There’s a wonderful song by the late, great John Denver called Chained to the Wheel that could just turn into your personal anthem for the next seven years. Know what you really need, You can’t get enough’. Funny as often we end up chained to something without even realising it. And this can be anything from that dead-end job where we are constantly passed over for promotion but need to pay the bills, to that relationship that no longer works. It can literally creep up on us unawares. But by the time we realise this, breaking those chains can just seem too scary or daunting. So we stay put. Telling ourselves it’s not so bad. Living a half-life instead.

As the song goes: Don’t pray for a sign, Know what you really want. But if you don’t – don’t worry as you are about to discover it along the way. The awakening that Uranus brings in our first house is waking up to ourselves. And in your case, your values and what you truly need and want.

Begin to ask yourself questions around this especially if it involves partners – whether present or the kind you’d like to be spending time with in the future, when the Sun in your 1st opposes Jupiter in your 7th on the 9th. Who or what do you want to continue with or draw to you? Your 7th rules partners but it also rules the power of attraction – literally what is ‘opposite’ you, so time to focus on this. The second week sees you in a position to begin to communicate this and in a new and more dynamic way as Mercury enters your 1st on the 13th.

Take action on your ideas as this is the true beginning of a long-term cycle designed to break you free from whatever has got you hooked up to that situation you feel unable to escape in the first place.  You can now choose to take the initiative (recommended), but if not, outside events or others may conspire to bring things to a sudden, surprising conclusion (necessary for your evolution). One way or another, the result is the same however. You are unhooked and unchained as incredible aspects involving a new Moon in your 1st which trines Mars and Pluto in your 9th of expansion and the arrival of Uranus in your 1st all on the same day, set you free to forge a new path.

Ruler Venus is on the move also on the 19th as she enters your 3rd and makes a beautiful angle to that newly arrived Uranus in your 1st. This could bring beneficial news around business or your work with Mars also newly arrived in your 10th of career, now is the time to get clear about what you want in terms of career, communicate those ideas and sell yourself (and them) effectively. This could mark the start of an important upswing for you – especially if your direction has not been clear of late. But this can stem simply from you becoming more aware of what it is you want – which by the time Uranus leaves your 1st in approximately seven years’ time, may be different yet again than what it is now. So, see yourself as your own work in progress and don’t be afraid to experiment.

The Sun’s entry into your 2nd from the 21st combined with a full Moon in your corporate money sector on the 29th could see you bringing a financial matter to a conclusion or else bring you a powerful awakening around what it is you truly value – perhaps your freedom more than anything. Something you may have counted on may now shift or else come to an end but if it does, again, this is just intended to free you from dependency if it was holding you back. Watch for news – especially around the big money and how it relates to you personally as Mercury enters your 2nd on the 30th.

You can’t fight your destiny, as the song tells us. But you can create a new one when you reinvent yourself and your life. This month marks a period where one way or another, you’ll break free to forge a new path. An electrifying, heart-starting and soul-awakening cycle awaits. Feel the thunder as you’re unchained.

In a nutshell: Get ready for a cycle of incredible, electrifying change, Taurus. Time for the magic of reinvention as you awaken to your power – and what you truly need this month.

Taurus 2018 

Yikes! 2018 is a rollercoaster of a year for you, Taurus. Get ready for excitement, thrills and a good dash of the unexpected in this cosmic cocktail. You’re going to be shaken and stirred as this is the start of a massive soul transformation. Uranus, the crazy, innovative and maverick genius planet, enters your sign in May. Think of this as ‘preview night’ as he’ll retrograde out again on the 6th November. This merely sets you up for the jaw-dropping, Cirque de Soleil seven year performance from 2019 onwards. On the one hand, you will experience this time as possibly disconcerting. Let’s face it you are not the best sign to deal with the unpredictable. By the end next year, hopefully, you should see the value of the sudden changes that are coming your way. Don’t panic! You are about to be given a key to a freedom you didn’t know existed.

Uranus in your sign allows you to find yourself and promises to deliver all sorts of excitement and liberation. OK, some of it may be shocking – like a blot out of the blue. But all of it has a deeper purpose. Take notice of anything unusual that happens between May and November and also watch the way you respond to it. Proactive, being spontaneous and trusting your instincts sees you becoming a magician wielding the tools of change. You might benefit from reading BLINK – The power of thinking without thinking by Malcolm Gladwell on how to trust your snap judgments.

Saturn’s entry into your 9th at the end of 2017, brings an intense focus which shifts you away from the familiar and opens you up to find your structure and security in freedom. What does that mean? You have the stamina and force of personality to stretch your boundaries. You can achieve status and success through learning, travel, technology and your own original voice. You are not towing the line but skipping over it with a newfound sense of optimism and VA VA VOOM. Yay!

Venus, your ruler, is kicking off 2018 with the same wild energy. On 9th January she snogs Pluto the Lord of the Underworld, and just like any fairytale kiss, life is never the same again.  You too may be bold, seductive and have an aura of the maverick about you. You might be tempted to act recklessly in love. You want to walk on the wild side. The Sun is also getting intimate with Pluto on the same day, so you feel confident enough to chase a dream. Later on, the 21st, Venus is getting it on with Neptune bringing a sense of spirituality, dreaminess and fantasy to your love life. You are seeking soul connections and have a tenderness about you that is very appealing. Be careful you don’t fall for an illusion however, as you surrender to heightened emotions. Although when Jupiter goes retro from the 9th March, an ex-lover may turn up, reformed, and eager to rekindle the romance.

Ruler Venus makes a rare retrograde in October, and you dive into a reflective phase. You seek space to soak up the experiences of the past few months, and again your thoughts might just turn to ex-lovers or your relationships as a whole. If you have got back with an ex, you should now see clearly if they have changed their ways or if your mutual dynamic can work long term. When your ruler the sorceress of love goes direct in November, you feel back in control and able to make decisions about the future of love if you need to. Bear in mind that Mercury is retrograde until December the 6th so it might take a while for a union to pick back up. Don’t be afraid to play the waiting game.  

A powerful eclipse in August brings your focus back to home, family, living arrangements, your career and lifestyle. Remember, eclipses cover up but then they reveal. You may deep down know that it’s time for big decisions that impact on your long term security, where you hang your hat or make your bread. As I said at the start of the reading, you tend to resist or put off change – even when change is overdue. As the revealing influence of the eclipse kicks in, this combined with Uranus working to free you from any ruts you have dug for yourself, means that you all too clearly see the need for change and embrace it rather than resist it. Your only regret may be that you did not do it sooner! A freer yet more sustaining phase of living is the result and this may be one dramatically different to what you envisaged for yourself at the start of the year.

2018 is an opportunity to shift your life, to swim in a fresh direction and to release patterns, people and ideas that have held you back. This can be both challenging and exciting both at the same time. But when you stop and think about it, isn’t that just what rollercoasters are like? You get caught up in the excitement, you scream at the top as you hurtle down but when you get off you go: What a ride! There may be twists and turns ahead, but 2018 could just offer you the ride of your life.
