Love that uniqueness
Make that promise to future you
Show you’re love and success enabled!
Ruler Venus arrives in your Now Age 10th at the start of February. Career matters, your status, public image and reputation will be your main focus this month. Due to the massive planetary activity in here. On the day of the new Moon in here on the 11th, we have a major stellium comprising of the Sun, Moon, retrograde Mercury (direct from the 21st), Jupiter and Saturn.
Time to focus on invention, innovation, entrepreneurial projects and what it is that makes you stand out from others in your chosen field. Even if you do not engage in paid work right now, this line up is set to elevate your status or that of your partner’s, or image in some way.
Rewards for adulting and yes, your ability to diligently stay the course could be on their way as Venus meets Saturn, Jupiter and retroactive Mercury. You could go from being behind the scenes to front of house, collecting accolades, promotions or acknowledgments. Above all this month is about not feeling guilty for wanting what you want. That’s the up-side to adulting and taking yourself seriously. Serious commitment to dreams. And knowing you deserve them to happen.
See Yourself as Others See You
Be aware that your image and how you are perceived – especially by those in influential positions, is going to play a major role too this month. It’s about your connections and the place you have earned yourself in the grander scheme of things. So, you need to be extra-specially mindful of this now. Are you seen as someone to respect and who is reliable? This isn’t about bending yourself out of shape to ‘conform’ at all. But what it is about is the impression you have created for yourself.
Dates to watch and make a point of trying to see yourself as others do are the 1st when the Sun in your 10th squares Mars in your 1st asking you to reach for cooperation balanced with self-assurance. And the 19th when you can truly project some charismatic confidence when Venus makes the same angle to Mars.
This also applies to romance. Unlike those Aries-next-door, this month could in fact bring Valentine’s love for some Taurean singles. This could even be with someone connected to your professional network. Your 10th doesn’t just rule how high you can climb or what you can achieve. But your partner’s path too. Ruler Venus could therefore deliver that love prospect who is quite the catch.
Take the initiative now with career matters and ensure you project the right image. But please avoid any confrontations with anyone in a position of authority. Mars will trine Pluto, the final remaining slow-moving planet left in your 9th, on the 25th. Making all the right moves could just hand you the release into something better you’ve been waiting for, Taurus.
If you have been contemplating a career change but have yet to take that first step, the new Moon in your 10th on the 11th is one which shines on those goals – especially those connected to your career. Or even that romantic status! Astrologers have long associated this particular new Moon with future plans according to the house it appears with. So, anything that represents a step up.
This is also the new Moon which ushers in the Chinese New Year – the Year of the Ox. Again, an important time for new beginnings. So, set your intentions and make your plans. And then act once Mercury heads direct in here once again on the 21st. Just be aware of the potential for things to swing back and forth until mid-March however. Adapt strategies and remain flexible.
Is Love The Change You Need?
The 14th has retro factor Mercury rekindle big dreams – including those around your biggest loves, once more as it meets Jupiter for the second time. This day also has a line up in your socially-diverse 11th between asteroid Cupido, Ceres and the Moon. All three squaring the Galactic Centre in your 8th. Does having what you want or love to experience require a change?
Love with a foreign flavour or far, far away could attract. It’s pulling you towards new potential if you will let go and let it. This can also link you to experiences, beliefs, studies and the mass media. Then of course there’s those ambitions to consider and the love of what you do.
Connections, friendships, networks, bands, groups, professional organisations, higher causes and who you know as opposed to what will be in focus from the 18th when the Sun enters your 11th. Ruler Venus won’t be far behind as it too arrives in here on the 25th. Time to re-engage with who you already know. And look to ways to broaden your circle and also involvements even if socially distanced now. This cycle sets the tone for your social life and your future for the coming year. Stagnant or expanding? It’s up to you.
The 21st sees Mercury finally direct again in your 10th and also Ceres arrive in your 12th. What’s the compromise you need to strike now between those personal ambitions and drive to succeed? What has to be relinquished or let go of? Having it all is so last century. Nobody gets that. Having something better – so today. This is asking you to pick and choose. A process that you have been refining during this Mercury retrocycle. So, focus on what’s truly important, Taurus. And that which defines you now.
This month’s full Moon on the 27th is known as the ‘Snow Moon’ – although January’s full Moon is sometimes also called that. It is called the ‘Hunger Moon’ by some native cultures owning to the fact that food was in short supply. February in Romani tradition is called ‘Little black month’ – a reference to its short duration and also the winter depths. We are however now a month away from the spring equinox so remember that.
It will shine on issues relating to romance, children and creative self-expression now. As well as what might be missing with regards to goals and good times to share with others. Sure, it can be hard right now to join in and connect. But look to how necessary this is for your wellbeing. It forms an integral part of your success story this month. Having it all may not be possible. But reaching those ambitions and benefits via who you know? All on offer this month, Taurus.
In a nutshell: You gotta love your ambitions this month, Taurus. Take them seriously. You could be about to up your game in both the love and career stakes. You may not get to have it all – just what matters most to you!
