Team leader or team player? You can be both!

Add a new dimension to what success means to you

Seek value

Mercury enters its ruling 6th this week while Mars stokes up ambition in your 10th of career and along with Uranus is asking you to reach for a different approach. The Sun also follows Mercury into your 6th from the 23rd. You’ll not just see your ambitions fired up, but you want what you do to mean something and to feel what you do is important now. If you work for yourself, you’ve the ability to add extra value to what you do. And also to accomplish a great deal now whether you are self-employed or not. If you work with others, just ensure you don’t go overboard insisting on doing things your way. It’s time to work towards cooperation and collaboration. To know when to be a leader but also when to be part of a team. You are in a position to do both now.

When it comes to work or even your routine, you’re restless now and seeking ways to give you and your ideas more room. More breathing space. If your job has become confining, then do take advantage of both Mars and Mercury and take action to make changes. Especially if those changes would give you that feeling of value and purpose behind what you do. Yes, you are seeking financial rewards now. But the real take out is in the feeling you get at the end of the day for a job well done and support for your ideas. Pursue this benefit above all others this week.

monthly horoscope

Be the change you want to see in your life

Step into your best cycle for love for 2018!

Set yourself free

Time to be set free, Taurus. Are you ready? Soul restrictions and blocks to progress vary from individual to individual. Because what we need for our own personal freedom and evolution is different due to our own individual journey. This month is all about Future Mapping in the present now Saturn has finally shifted to direct motion again in your 9th. Smooth sailing replaces heavy weather with one caveat: you need to have a clear direction in mind. Hopefully you have used the Saturn retrograde cycle and the unusual retrograde weather we experienced last month, as a time to look closely  at where you need to make room to learn, experience, explore, expand and evolve. Nature after all, abhors a vacuum. And September brings with it the possibility of new growth and exciting opportunities. Chart your course, Taurus!

The Sun and Mercury in your house of romance, children and pleasure draws your attention to whether or not you’re expressing yourself. Or just living up to other’s expectations. This is your house of good times, where you get to create, be spontaneous, have fun and shine. Are you doing that? This is also one of the houses in your chart which rules attraction. Children, stepchildren or just young people in general may feature as may memories of your own childhood. Especially when it comes to charting your own course. The confidence to do this begins in childhood. Were you encouraged to be yourself or did you feel you had to conform in some way? With the Sun in here opposing Neptune in your social sector, whatever you are seeking to attract rests on how comfortable you are being yourself. Allow creativity and intuition to be your guides here. When we are set free to be ourselves, this is when our power to attract is at its best. Life flows with us and through us. Art, music, performing – there’s a touch of theatricality about all of this. Anything which allows you to express your creativity or any event linked to these themes is where you will find your joy and also new friendships or even a romantic opportunity.  The new Moon of the 9th in your 5th also draws in inspiration and insight from Neptune. Follow that inner voice and you could find yourself in the right place at the right time where new connections sparkle with potential.

This new Moon wants you to experience fun and pleasure – but without this tipping into over-indulgence. This is one of those new Moons which favours taking a chance. It’s not about being reckless however. When it comes to your career, Mars enters your 10th during the second week of the month, restoring drive and firing up those ambitions. There’s a saying: ‘You have to speculate to accumulate’ so take a chance on anything that could build on what you have already established and adds to your professional credibility.

Continue to be open to expansion and the possibility of change. Often you can’t have one without the other. Change isn’t a scary word. If you’re single, something has to change for you to find love. As in a new person must enter your life. If you want a fresh direction in your career –again, something has to change. You apply for a new role, repackage your skills or upskill. Often change involves people entering or leaving – lovers, partners, friends, bosses. The changes we want to manifest begin within when we relate to ourselves differently. Because this affects our interactions in the outer world, we then become agents for our own change.

Ruler Venus enters its ruling 7th in your chart from the 9th and you’re stepping into one of the best cycles for relating and changing how you relate for 2018.  You now have both Venus and Jupiter in this sector of your chart. This is only the second time both of these planets have been in here at the same time in 12 years! Also, it is the last time for another 12 years. Expand the love in your life now. Existing relationships bring fresh opportunities and deepen. Important new relationships can begin. Career matters and any ventures that involve you and at least one other person offer success so collaborate and connect. Two can achieve far more together than they could as separate individuals now.

With the Sun and Mercury meeting in your 5th on the 21st, take every opportunity to showcase and express yourself. To seek the spotlight, to meet people and have fun. Don’t shy away from being the centre of attention and whatever you do, don’t take things too seriously – and that includes yourself.  You won’t get another window like this for another 12 years! Above all, if you are in the wrong relationship, use this energy to bring things to an amicable conclusion as you will find this easier to do than at any other time.

The Sun moves into your 6th from the 23rd. This is your house of work, day-to-day responsibility, wellbeing, pets, routines and also ideas. As far as the latter goes, you’ll want to be heard and acknowledged for these now. Expressing them and being acknowledged and validated will be integral to your wellbeing and are the key to job satisfaction. Mercury which rules this house enters on the 22nd. Changing your diet, your daily routine and also your mind (embracing new ideas), could affect more than just your physical wellbeing but have a positive knock-on effect on other areas. Yes, it’s another form of change. Explore that mind/body connection and how it relates to introducing the new.

Having more faith in yourself, your insight, your creativity, your abilities and that inner compass, is what the full Moon in your 12th on the 25th wants you to do. This is your house of secrets, hidden truths, psychic ability and the past. If you feel something strongly now, look back at the times when your ‘gut’ feeling was telling you something. Now is not the time to ignore it. Neither is it keeping how you truly feel to yourself. Sudden flashes of insight can provide you with the release you need or send you off on a new path towards love and freedom. Be the change this September, Taurus.

In a nutshell: Embrace who you truly are and set in motion forces for positive change. Time to live and express your passion, Taurus. Others are going to love the change – and so are you!

annual horoscope

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.
