It’s truth or consequences when it comes to connections
Have the courage of your convictions
It’s all about the love now!
Love is love no matter the form it takes. You are entering your yearly romance and indulgence peak which gets kick-started now by Mercury and Ganymed conjunct in your 5th while Mercury trines Uranus in your 1st across the 15th-16th. This is all about expressing your love your way no matter your sexual identity, desires or needs. And finding your ‘people’ where you feel supported, loved and accepted for who you are.
There’s a reality check around this on the 21st when Mercury not only enters its retroshadow but opposes Neptune in your 11th of soul friendships and support. Who truly has your back or allows you to be yourself? Or is what is said behind your back something different entirely? Frenemies get outed if they exist.
Mars leaves your sign on the 20th and hands you money making ideas as it lands in your 2nd. Not just that, you’ll feel the need to strongly defend your values. You have the courage of your convictions. So, woe betide anyone who shows you theirs are in deficit. Mars in set for a long term stay in here due to a rare retrograde. Changes around how you make your bread, or avenues which give rise to extra dough are likely between now and 2023.
Ruler Venus and the Sun remain in your 4th giving rise to two trines across your 8th – 12th houses as Venus trines Jupiter (18th) and the Sun trines the Galactic Centre in your 8th (20th). This gives rise to the possibility of a move of home or work. Or the emergence of something designed to put you in a better position all round when it comes to your long term security. Just watch for any signs of gender bias as retro Vesta returns to your career zone on the 21st. But Mars sees you unafraid to take a stand now if you discover things are not as equal as they should be.
In a nutshell: Bold and brazen and armed with a fresh, fierceness, you’re off in the name of love in hot pursuit of what you want, Taurus. Anyone who is not on the same page gets left behind you now.
