‘Tis the season of love in sync!

Shadows get left in the past

Act on a new opportunity

Equal passion, harmony in partnerships, the attraction of opposites – this week’s arrival of ruler Venus in its ruling house (7th) sees it oppose Jupiter in your 1st (10th). Fated, dated meetings, grand designs in love, you and another in total sync – ‘tis the season to fall back in love with love, Taurus!

Who or what you seek seeks you in return. It is time to mingle if you’re single as a Pringle. Movement and travel are also highlighted thanks to a trine between Mercury in your 9th and Jupiter on the 8th. There’s an over-arching emotional release to all of this. A feeling of finally leaving any lingering shadows or restrictions behind you. They slide away into the depths of past memory. Leaving you to move forward bright and hopeful again.

That sudden hot flare of attraction may not die down if you meet someone new. All you share or have in common simply fuels the fires over time. Do look for shared spiritual ground as this is your ground zero where lasting love gets generated this week.

As well as relating and love, this week offers inspiration, creativity, opportunity and a call to action as your ruler opposes Jupiter. If news arrives you need to act. And possibly not take too long with your answer. You’re being asked to head in a fresh direction. With someone by your side. Perhaps that existing partner. Perhaps someone new. Answer the call, Taurus.

In a nutshell: New directions appear. Are you now bold enough to go explore them? The past no longer defines you, Taurus. Unless you let it. Time to release yourself into something which totally relates to who you’ve become.

The final month of 2023 provides the pivot point for all of us to realign to something more satisfying for the New Year. As well as your December forecast you can unpack more treats as the month unfolds. Including your yearly 2024 forecast, your Moonscopes and also discover what Pluto in Aquarius means for your sign!

With ruler Venus in its ruling 7th in your chart (4th) right up until the end of the month, this could be a loved-up and romantic holiday season for Taurus. It may not revolve around what is said but what is done. Take it once Mercury retrogrades in your 9th from the 13th, that actions will speak louder than words. And you will be paying close attention to what is done as well as what is said, Taurus.

And both need to align. You won’t fall for Christmas cake crumbing any longer. As in the person who promises so much but only delivers a fraction if not at all. This month could see you calling them out if so. This is all in the spirit of giving – to yourself in the knowledge you deserve better. And of course your over-riding belief that promises are meant to be kept. Ensure you hold others to this standard.

It’s also not about what is spent but the thoughtfulness of behind what is given. You’ll appreciate that more than ever. What warms your heart is the fact someone has taken the time to seek out something special – and not its price ticket. Or has been paying close attention in the lead up to the season of giving to your interests or what you have been desiring. And you will express the same thoughtfulness in return to someone you care about.

Have you been naughty or nice? Or both?! It’s not just the mulled wine that may be spicy and hot. But you thanks to the Sun and also Mars in your 8th. Mars is the ancient co-ruler of this house. The double edged sword that desires or dispassionately cuts away what no longer serves you. Either way, this gets you what you want or paves the way for it, Taurus.

Because of Jupiter and Uranus in your 1st, December sees you at your most magnetic. Your desires answer you in outer form. Manifesting or drawn to you by the Law of Attraction. This will be evident on the 10th when Venus opposes Jupiter. And also the 21st when Venus opposes Uranus. This is going to be a real-world demonstration for you on the power contained within your focus, Taurus.

What you focus on crystallises over time. Like anything to do with Venus, the coin has two sides. The naughty and nice, the heads and tails, the yin and the yang. Do consciously hone that focus this month so you control your results. As in if you feel yourself drifting towards focussing on the negative, make a conscious effort to pull the focus onto the positive. Where your focus goes, manifestation follows.

The upshot of this can also be you attracting attention, recognition, rewards, praise, gifts and yes, love. The effort you have made has been noted. And the image you are projecting this month is impossible to ignore. Unlike other signs, your Venus transit is one least likely to lead you astray financially. Again, this is because what you give or are given is being measured against what you really value rather than that price ticket.

With Venus in your 7th until the end of the month and Jupiter direct again from the final day of the year, don’t just hone that attention on your outer relationships but on your relationship with yourself as well. Your all-powerful 1st means you can make beautiful changes around how you look, your appearance and despite the season being the one to be jolly, you can also begin to hone your fitness and lose weight if this happens to be one of your goals for the coming year. For your best chance at success begin anything connected to this at the time of the new Moon in your 8th on the 12th. Then once your ruler joins retro Mercury in here at the end of the month, you can refine that regimen and lock it in for the long term.

Think of yourself as phoenix like and rising above anything that weighs you down. Especially if you are discovering you are the centre of attention. The final weeks of Pluto in your 9th along with the Mercury retrograde enables you to find solutions or simply escape from what’s been holding you back.

Because Mercury re-enters your house of rebirth, something may literally revive or come alive again for you. Again, is this something you have been focussing on – even unconsciously. During its pre and post retroshadow phases as well as the retrograde itself, Mercury will make three trines to Jupiter in your 1st. Setting you up during this cycle for an opportunity. Just know it may take until January to really coalesce.

The Sun in your 9th has you looking very much ahead (22nd). You’ve been in a process of deciding who you are going to be for your future. And bringing that scintillating soul into being. The 25th hands you blissful and magical pleasure and the opportunity to spend the holidays surrounded by loved ones thanks to ruler Venus and Neptune. While the full Moon (27th) in your 3rd – the final full Moon of the year, has you discussing those plans for the coming year.

The path ahead is highlighted and clearly for you. Don’t lost sight of what you set out to do now or allow your intention to waver as the year draws to a close. Across the 27th – 28th feel the raw potential surge inside you. You know what needs to be done now to fully give birth to the new version of you. As Jupiter heads direct in your sign on the final day of ‘23, set yourself up to be extraordinary. The days of playing it safe now need to be over. The new version of you demands something more. Brave the resistance and push through it into the new year.

In a nutshell: Ruler Venus in your 7th continues your yearly partnership peak all the way to the end of the year, Taurus! Follow through when it comes to those desires. Focus your passion and project it out there. A new you – and a new era, is in the making!

Taurus 2023

Phenomenal, fierce and awakened best describes you in ‘23, Taurus! Jupiter arrives in your sign in May after a 12 year absence. Get ready to push the envelope when it comes to embracing opportunity as you go higher, further and bigger than you have done before.

A series of major conjunctions between your ruler Venus and all the outer planets occurs from the very start of ‘23, Taurus. Between January 1 and March 30, Venus will co-join Pluto, Saturn, Neptune, Jupiter and finally Uranus in your sign. This process will see you emerge with a totally re-minted agenda and outlook when it comes to what you want or where you are going from here on in.

You will feel forged in the fires of transformation, glowing with with renewed purpose. Ready to explore or launch yourself in a fresh direction by the time Jupiter arrives in your sign on May 16.

Path and purpose – renewed!

Strange encounters, the spirit world, life after death, who you were in a past life and who you will be in a future one are the kinds of questions that take you into the deeper side of life in order to get answers. About your past decisions, why you chose them and where you go from here on in. Karma comes in to play now and you need to be looking back 18-19 years as the Nodes shift their axis from your 1st-7th to your 12th – 6th. Your 12th house is always what you are unaware of or cannot see. But its incredible power is that is also contains what you can grow into. That hidden potential and opportunity for renewal.

Use this to go deep within. Your beliefs, the Tarot, astrology, self-help, a therapist, a psychic, a teacher, priest or rabbi are just a few examples of what or who you may call upon on this journey. Especially with Jupiter back in here and prior to it reaching your 1st. Transformation for you – reframing the past, healing wounds, changing your ideas – will send you hurtling into a new cycle of freedom when Pluto and Saturn change signs.

Saturn enters your 11th on March 7 promising serious commitment to goals. And reliable friendships. Pluto’s shift into your 10th from March 23rd could see many of you impelled to take a powerful new path or direction. Or step up into a more prominent position in your chosen career. The people who surround you at the time may prove to be the key to this. So do bring your best game and be aware of your public and professional image during this cycle.

Hours before the Sun’s arrival in your sign on April 20, we have an extremely rare event occur which will impact on your inner work and what you have been unaware of – perhaps until now. A hybrid solar eclipse occurs along with a new Moon in Aries. Do check your chart for Aries factors as many Taureans have them. You are looking for anaretic factors. That is anything at 29 degrees of Aries or 0 degrees of Taurus. If you have these, this will prove to be as powerful and as personal as it can get.

Eclipses cover up. We know this. A hybrid eclipse is an eclipse which combines all three eclipse types – total, annular and partial. What you see depends on the viewer’s perspective. This is the first hybrid eclipse to occur in Aries and your 12th for 159 years. This is a big cover up that has been going on for a very long time. And changing your perspective or viewpoint is crucial to you seeing what it really going on. Perhaps it is you who has covered up your true needs, purpose and desires? Have you been wearing a public mask just to survive? Bending yourself out of shape to meet all responsibilities except the one to yourself? The answers to this lie within you.

Love answers the question

Gather your courage and move ahead as the Sun arrives in your sign hours later and do allow a few weeks beyond this eclipse to truly embrace what it wants you to know, look at or integrate. You begin your fresh cycle with the Sun, Mercury, Juno, Vesta, Uranus and the North Node in your sign. Mercury will retrograde in your 1st on the 21st plus you have another eclipse (lunar) which impacts on you as it occurs in your 7th of double acts, duets and dynamic and dramatic double acts on May 5 while the Sun meets Uranus in your sign on the 9th. This involves you sticking to what you know is right around a key relationship and will define your path in partners from here on in. Love is the answer one way or another to the questions posed by the eclipse cycle. Whether this is prioritising self-love or where love goes from here on in.

Feel the release and return of optimism, enthusiasm and the ability to grasp your fortune from here on in as Jupiter lands in your sign on May 16 and your personal new Moon appears on the 19th. I told you earlier to be mindful of your image – now big it up but without exaggeration with Jupiter in here. It’s your key to attraction, progress and opportunity this Jupiter cycle. Expect bolder, unmissable updates to your appearance, image, style, look, profile, title, attitude and presence – on line and off it. Showcase this in a way that feels right for you. Update if needed. Some way even go as far as cosmetic enhancements – dental, facial procedures. Check where your ruler Venus is before booking! But yes, your face or message could literally be your fortune now.

If there is still an unanswered question around love, Jupiter in your 1st can often act as a more powerful attractor than Jupiter in our 7th. Why? Because Jupiter in our 1st makes us feel good about ourselves. And that’s what activates the Law of Attraction and allows us to effortlessly tap into manifestation magic. You are the catalyst, the self-starter however. When we change our appearance we signal to the universe we are ready for change itself to take us and transform our lives. Are you?

Wake up to soul-centered self love

Take time up until June 1 when Mercury exits its retroshadow in your 1st for renewal and to make lasting decisions around your future needs. As Mercury leaves the shadowlands – so do you, Leaving uncertainty and self-doubt and anything you’ve outgrown behind you. Embark on a journey of freedom now Taurus! The North Node will exit your sign on July 18 moving back into your 12th while the South Node enters Libra and your 6th. This is where decisions and choices from 18-19 years ago come into play and that remaining eclipse residue can be worked on and released. We are products of our past but not prisoners of it. We only repeat it or continue to live in it if we remain unawakened to our choices and reasons. Luckily you now see what you need to do in order to set a different destiny in motion. So, act, Taurus! This is soul centered self-love you are creating.

Reach for something bigger

2023 should see you reaching a few new and exciting goals both personally and professionally. Others see you in a fresh light. Even those who have known you for some time. And this simply reflects how you see yourself. Travel will feature for many of you this year as Jupiter rules the long distance kind. Plus, you will see improvements in relationships or an important new one begin – perhaps linked to your larger social circle.

Do slow down however in July when your ruler Venus makes a rare retrograde in your 4th house and put that search for new love on hold. Many of you may review your living situations or be dealing with family agendas at this point. Venus will move direct again on Sept 4 – the same day Jupiter retrogrades in your 1st. Think consolidation and also refinement of what you have set in motion. There’s a new deal on love or a working relationship on its way as Ceres enters your 7th on Sept 13 while the soul-stretching Grand Earth Trine of October 2-3 puts that desire very firmly within reach.

You will feel the undeniable impulse to enact any remaining changes – especially around partnership matters as the planets begin to assemble for your yearly love and relationship peak. Mars (12th), Mercury (22nd) and the Sun (23rd) join Ceres in your 7th. However, you have an eclipsed full Moon in your sign on October 28. Do ensure your plans don’t exclude that special someone. Know however where to set those boundaries but also when to compromise. This is the final stage of the relating/inner work your have been doing. And one final barrier to cross before full soul freedom. You got this!

The year ends with you enjoying an extra serving of peak partnership experience as Venus enters its ruling 7th in December. You also have at this point, anaretic Pluto back in Capricorn and your 9th but about to enter your 10th again. Many of you may benefit from your past hard work and coming from a place of soul integrity in what you do. Pluto could well give you a second boost up the ladder as it returns to your 10th early in ‘24.

Maximise the changes you’ve made to your image heading into the new year as Jupiter rolls forward again in your 1st on New Year’s Eve. Look back and celebrate the dynamic changes you set in motion. And the doors that magically opened for you as a result of that. It all begins within you, Taurus. Change your thoughts, align your image to that – and watch the world reflect that.
