22 Jul 2018 SUN ENTERING LEO (4th Hse)

22 Jul 2018 VENUS SEXTILE JUPITER (5th Hse to 7th Hse)


Set your value system

Create a lifestyle that supports love

Embrace pleasure

Your home, apartment, lifestyle, living space, sense of space and place and above all, sense of belonging features now. Are you feeling a sense of pride around these things or is where you live just somewhere you hang your hat? With Uranus in your sign for the first time in your adult life, you are beginning a personal awakening and revolution. In how you see yourself and of course, your lifestyle and surroundings need to reflect this. Your deep sense of being a spiritual being experiencing the material world means you are constantly seeking that balance between staying in touch with what matters (your values) yet needing to not just pay the bills, but have enough left over to enjoy life’s sensual pleasures too. And you could be looking at those aplenty thanks to ruler Venus in your 5th angling to Jupiter in Venus’s ruling 7th. This is a fabulous week to attract love and other pleasures into your life. Radiate. Attract. Embrace what responds. And don’t question the process.

The Sun’s entry into your 4th this week has you looking at your apartment, your home, your living space, your family, the people you live with and even investment property if you have it. How does this all reflect on your present identity revolution? Where or what is home to you and what do you need to gain or change to obtain this for the future? There is no place like home as it is our bedrock from which everything else begins and returns to. The next month is all about adjustments to this if need be. If you love where you live, how you live and have that all-important sense of place, then commit to it and do what you can to make it even more enjoyable for yourself. This is a good time to redecorate, renovate or spend money on your home. If you don’t like your lifestyle or your living arrangements – do something about it. This week is all about your roots. Dig deeper – or replant in more fertile soil.


monthly horoscope

Do you know what you’re missing?

Reinvent your lifestyle

Accept only the real thing –no fakes, no substitutions

There’s an old saying that people don’t know what they want until they see it. Or we could substitute ‘want’ for ‘need’ here. More to the point, you may not have known what it is you were missing until well, it turned up. To get all Carly Rae Jepsen – Before you came into my life I missed you so bad. Well, you may or may not have. Because very often we are totally unaware of what we are missing or what is missing until we are confronted with it. Chances are you have spent the past seven years not realising this Taurus. But July could show you exactly what it is you’ve been missing – or missing out on.

Ready for revelations? Ruler Venus shines in your 5th from the 10th while this day also sees Jupiter head direct again in your partnership sector. The moment of realisation could come as early as two days later when for the first time in your lifetime your ruler will trine the newly arrived Uranus in your 1st. Suddenly you’re wide awake and not caught up in a dream any more that has made you buy into a substitution instead of the real thing. Of course, if you have the real thing, you’ll know that too. But if not, you’ll now recognise what it is that you’ve been missing. For some of you this may occur right when it presents itself. Or an event highlights the fact you’ve known it for a while but put off taking any action to rectify matters. Settling instead for that substation. That ‘semi-okay’ choice that actually isn’t a choice but a cop-out.  As Venus moves through your 5th to trine first Saturn and then Pluto in your 9th, not doing something about it is no longer an option. You’ll choose freedom and whatever (who whoever) it is you’ve been missing. This July could just fill that void in your life which you had no idea existed until now.

This month brings us all two important eclipses. The first appears in your 3rd of ideas, commerce and communication on the 13th which is the day of the new Moon in here.  This is a partial Solar eclipse and please remember eclipses always conceal. Someone may not be giving you all the information in other words. You are being ‘kept in the dark’ over something and quite possibly, deliberately as between the two eclipses ruler Venus will oppose Neptune which rules secrets. Trust above all not what people are saying but what your gut instincts or intuition is telling you. As the shadow of one eclipse cycle moves off, the truth tends to come out. This can be a slow process but this does not stop you doing your own investigating or following those nudges from your intuition. Also, as this eclipse occurs in your house of ideas, please guard these carefully.  A friend of mine once had a co-worker attempt to pass off her idea as their own under an eclipse in her 3rd. She only discovered this as the shadow of the eclipse passed and an email send by the co-worker to the directors of the company came to light. Yes, astrology can work that literally. And it can also show us where to be on high alert if need be.

The 22nd sees the Sun exit your 3rd and shine a light fair and square on your living space, family arrangements and home matters for the coming month. It will also make a tight angle to Uranus for the first time from here while Mercury also in your 4th will turn retrograde in here from the 26th. There is major retrograde weather happening in the sky still despite Jupiter now in forward motion. Most of the month will see five planets retrograde and you are one of the fortunate signs as of course, your ruler remains direct. You may now look at what is missing or lacking in your living arrangements. Do you need more space? Remember, all retrogrades rule ‘re’ words so this is an excellent time to redecorate or renovate. Just remember, Mercury rules contracts so unless you absolutely, positively cannot help it, try not to sign contracts, leases or other agreements until Mercury has moved forward again. Re-mortgaging or re-financing is fine however. As is moving ahead with a purchase or a lease on a property that previously fell through but is now back on the market again. ‘Re’ words also include rejuvenation. If you feel you need to do this in a new environment, then do your research (another ‘re’ word) and put those plans in motion next month.

What you need in terms of living space and lifestyle may also be subject to change and again, you may not be aware of what it is that you have been simply ‘settling’ for until an outside event shows you that. The same can be said for your career now. The next powerful eclipse takes place on the 27th when we have a total eclipse of the full Moon in your sector of reputation and rewards. This also sees the Sun in your 4th oppose retrograde Mars planet of action in here. What you are being kept in the dark about could well revolve around company politics. Or perhaps deep down you know you have gone as far as you can in your present job but have put off doing anything about finding something new. Something has been brewing for some time. Either your desire to move on or within the company itself. This could involve the person at the top but trickle down to you. What I can tell you is that if this is the case, the writing has been on the wall before and you can no longer ignore it. The Moon rules our intuition so please pay attention to what you are picking up on.

The 28th sees ruler Venus make that highly positive angle towards Pluto and a door marked ‘Freedom’. What’s on the other side? What you’ve been missing. It could be that love, that opportunity, that ability to express yourself or just a chance to change your daily life and create something that reflects who you are and offers that perfect blend of security and soul liberation.

In a nutshell:  You may not be aware of just what’s been missing from your life lately, Taurus. Romance? Fun? Freedom? Prepare for a discovery that reclaims your passion this July.

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.
