You can’t deny those dreams any longer!
Own your path
Make self-care and love your priority
You crave routine, Taurus and seek harmony and stability in everything you do. That is because your sign is rule by Venus which always wants balance – and love to rule.
However, it’s all too easy for that routine to become a rut. Without us even realising it. This month will allow you to see clearly where and how that has happened. And also hand you the solutions to dig yourself out of it.
It all begins as the start of the month when the Sun in your 5th angles to Uranus in your 1st and ruler Venus in your 3rd opposes Saturn in your 9th. Saturn’s rings represent restrictions. Your 5th is about love, pleasure and the lightness of self-expression. Uranus wants to break us free when we stop evolving and begin to stagnate. You may be reminded of what you are missing now.
This happens the day before the full Moon in your 11th. There’s a whole world of experience and connectivity happening out there, Taurus. You will either feel part of it or else as if everyone else hot invited to a party – except you. It’s not about actual non-socially distanced mingling. Just about reflecting on where you now fit in. With your social circle or the world in general. Are you feeling left behind in some way? Or that you inadvertently got side tracked somewhere along the way?
Opportunities to get yourself back on track are there. But you will need to reach for them, Taurus. The 5th sees Mercury enter its ruling 6th and this is all about your routine and whether it supports your wellbeing. The 6th sees ruler Venus arrive in your 4th. You will either be looking at your home, domestic set-up, living arrangements, family etc with a sense of self-satisfied bliss. Or else be deeply dissatisfied with it.
Dreams come down to earth
The far-reaching Grand Earth Trine linking the Moon in your 1st with Jupiter in its ruling 9th and the Sun in your 5th offers a way to change things for the better. Especially if you now see you have fallen deeper in a rut than you previously realised.
Being one of the most down-to-earth signs out there, you tend to take a realistic approach to everything. But sometimes the solutions we are seeking can be found where we least expect them to be – within. Get back in touch with those deep inner needs and wants now. The ones you’ve been ignoring due to having to be practical and tend to those day to day responsibilities. It’s been 32 years since Mars last headed backwards in your 12th. So, we can say for many of you this will be the first time in your lifetime – or your adult life, that this has occurred.
From the 9th, think of this as handing you an Access All Soul Areas Pass to reconnect to those long -buried wants, needs, desires and dreams. With your ruler in your home sector right now, this combination tells you it’s time to go deep within your inner space.
How did you imagine your life would be? How does this compare to how things are? You can apply your talent for keeping it real here. And bring in an honest assessment of where you needed to let go or compromise. And where in all honesty, you should not have given up on the dream or vision you had for yourself.
Mars retrograde in your 12th allows you to look at this fearlessly without self-blame or recrimination. And then come up with a plan to put things right. Stepping free of habits that have contributed to that rut is part of the process. As is looking at what you wanted (and got) from love. Again, if the reality has fallen short, you can now continue to work with your inner guides to come up with a plan to put it right.
While Mars remains retrograde, it is more a time for this kind of reflection than action. This is also the house of the past. Old, unresolved issues can resurface and if so, try to deal with them as they do and don’t ignore or dismiss them. The same goes for people who resurface from your past. One thing about a Mars retrograde in your 12th is to keep in mind this is NOT a time to begin again. If you are tempted to get re-involved chances are they will come back in for a short time and then disappear for good once Mars heads direct once more!
You will also want to get to the bottom of things. Especially if you feel someone is not being upfront or honest. And please, don’t get involved in anything clandestine now. It will have the unfortunate tendency to burst out of the closet at the most inopportune moment and leave you with a lot of explaining to do.
With Mercury in its ruling 6th and then the Sun in here from the 22nd, you’ll quickly be able to see how that routine (or rut), those responsibilities or giving up on the dreams that make well – you truly you, have on your overall wellbeing. Again, this is an invitation to look at how to make soul affirming changes.
Wait for your moment
Mars is all about action. But Mars retro especially in your 12th is all about strategy and feeling for when the moment is right. Letting your inner voice guide this. It’s not that you cannot take action. But it’s the right action at the right time.
Burst into a new cycle of attraction
What dare you do or try? Jupiter direct in its ruling 9th occurs the same day (13th) as ruler Venus trines Chiron in your 12th. Stop or start in the name of love. Or finally make that move you’ve been putting off.
All this looking at how you imagined things would be vs. the way things are, put you in the mood to take some much needed action, Taurus. And if so then the new Supermoon of the 17th is your first green light to do just that. This supermoon will trine retrograde Saturn in your 9th. If you have been wanting to expand, break free and go off in hot pursuit of the way you now see things need to be – this is your moment to set the wheels in motion.
Live it large
Especially if this is linked to personal freedom, big loves, the mass media, travel (possibly in the mind but real nonetheless), study, academia and the outdoors. Barriers between you and these kinds of experiences come tumbling down and solutions to situations that have held you back or blocked you could appear now. Love? Very much back on the agenda as is your creativity and ability to attract.
The Sun joins Mercury in its ruling 6th from the 22nd. Walk, don’t rush and pay attention to the details around the 24th when Mercury will oppose Mars as mistakes and accidents could occur. Watch for snappy come-backs and snarky people. But don’t lose your cool.
This is your house of health, routine, daily devotion and wellbeing. Are you devoting enough time to yourself? And what is the cost of any neglect? Ruler Venus trines Mars bringing changes to your work or on the home front on the 28th. Two days later, the Sun opposes Chiron also in your 12th. The changes you make, the dreams you reach for – you’ve needed to do this for a while, Taurus. No more delays. No hesitation. Reclaim the path and the passion this month.
In a nutshell: Mars retrograde in your 12th means secrets won’t stay that way, Taurus. This includes those dreams and goals you’ve kept on lockdown. Don’t hide them away – time to live them instead.
