Ready to ride the change train? Your destination is transformation. Don’t hesitate – it’s all-aboard this week, Taurus.

Change, evolve, transform

Take a chance

Freedom is the road ahead

Changes – some initiated by yourself and others which just occur out-of-the-blue, lead to soul freedom for you now, Taurus. If you’ve been following along with your forecasts recently, you will have come to recognise that change and the need for it is a recurring theme at the moment. Now, despite the fact that you can resist change, hopefully, you have taken the initiative and set these in motion yourself by now. If not, the call to change may become so irresistible this week you may now have no other choice but to plunge into the unknown and set things in motion.

There’s an air of excitement and perhaps a little bit of risk around all of this. Don’t take any undue ones however, but Mars in his ancient ruling 8th can provide you with that long-awaited impetus to set change in motion if harnessed correctly. Above all, you need to take action now as Mars in here demands empowerment and forward-motion. Mercury in your house of travel, freedom and expansion meets Pluto the Ruler of Transformation and Change on the 24th. The following day he makes a positive angle towards Jupiter in your partnership sector from Jupiter’s ruling house. News could set you free or else you see the way towards it – and take it. And please do. If we do not initiate changes on our own behalf, sooner or later the universe will bring about events that enforce them. Don’t let it come to this as Mars in your 8th can bring about endings and as Mercury squares Uranus in your 12th, the unexpected rules. Jump on the change wagon and direct it, don’t just get taken for a ride.

· Experience more freedom in love

· Ask for what you want

· An exciting new journey begins

Intimacy and connection. Do you feel you have that Taurus? The start of 2018 has you peering below the surface at your emotional foundation thanks to a full Moon in your 3rd house which triggers a Grand Water Trine between Mars in your 8th (ruling house) and Neptune in your 11th. Are you communicating your needs and if so, are they being listened to and received? The response you get back could very well form the basis of your decisions for the rest of the month.

You’re seeing things more clearly now. Yes, this could be your theme song for January as Uranus moves direct again in your 12th. You not only see things clearly, you clearly see what needs to be done. Especially when it comes to partnerships. Mars may not be his happiest in your 7th house but he adds passion and impulsion and his meeting with Jupiter in here on the 7th is deeply significant for the future of relationships – and perhaps one in particular. You feel the stirrings of freedom in your soul and the desire for more. Perhaps a deeper more profound connection and you’ll seek to create this – or alternatively, look for it if it is lacking in your life.

Ruler Venus also beams a love-expanding angle to Jupiter from Jupiter’s ruling house (9th). In fact, until the third week of January, the astro-action is all concentrated on your 9th of exploration, luck, learning, travel, opportunity, big business and expansion. Like it or not, seeing clearly means broadening your horizons in some way and charting a course towards something bigger than what you have just ‘settled’ for of late. With Saturn now in this house of your chart for the first time in 29 years, this all has a ‘now or never’ feel to it. The question the universe is asking you is: what are you waiting for? Of course, it could just be the new Moon in here on the 17th which either marks a green light or the first phase of this journey you are embarking on. It could be literal as this is an excellent time to plan for travel – especially the long distance variety. Or it may be an opportunity to learn, study or an experience that you crave. Give in to it and pursue it. Don’t settle for less than a big dream now.

Where do you want to go from here? Especially when it comes to your career. Venus enters your 10th two days ahead of the Sun’s arrival in here on the 18th enhancing your professional image and reputation. The 26th also sees Mars change signs moving out of your 7th and into your empowered 8th which also rules your salary, negotiations and yes, sex life. You’ve the power now – how will you use it? A word about Mars in here. He ignites passion but also frustration. Your libido can soar and your partner may not be able to keep up. If you have no-one to call your own now, even if you have embarked on the search, you can channel all

this energy into your career and see some spectacular results. Just remember, energy needs an outlet. Find one.

Since August 2017 we’ve all been experiencing the ‘shadow’ of the eclipse. The final day of January sees this cycle come to a close with a new one opening up as we have a total eclipse of the Moon in the Moon’s ruling house in your chart. Expect events and emotions to unfold around home, family, your career, stability and long term decisions. This is the second full Moon in a month so it is a ‘blue’ Moon but also a red blood Moon due to the eclipse! This is very rare. What makes it rarer still is that it falls conjunct Ceres. See this as a precursor to big changes in your home, living situation and how you earn your money in 2018. You may even get an indication of how this will play out as Mercury arrives in your 10th on this very day. Something may have to be changed, given up or re-negotiated for this to be achieved. But whatever it is, you end up with something so much better. The way ahead is clear for you now, Taurus. Can you see it?

In a nutshell: Are you getting the intimacy and love connection you crave? If not, 2018 sends you off in search of it. Don’t settle for anything less, Taurus.

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.
