Join the cosmic tango!

Know your worth

What’s the rush?

Stops and starts feature this week, Taurus. Ruler Venus ends its retrograde in your 6th on the 16th while the cosmic North Node enters your 3rd of business and commerce. As well as love coming back on line you now should be looking to your income from what you do and those ideas. There’s one piece of news or idea that has future-determining potential this week. How do you intend to work that?

Friendships and goals are also in focus as Mars enters your 11th. You’re asking yourself what you want and also what is relevant. Take care not to rush anywhere now as Mercury presents a stop sign from the 17th when it turns retrograde in your house of mortgages, loans, taxes and your salary. How you feel about your money, what you owe, are owed in turn or negotiate is every bit as important as the amount you have. Feelings of insecurity or not feeling ‘worthy’ could surface as could worries about debt. See this as an opportunity to deal with these rather than ignore them. As Mercury rules getting around, this is one reason why I am telling you not to rush anywhere – especially if you are running late due to a retrograde cancellation or snafu. If you’re going to be late you may as well just relax into it. You’ll have a deep desire for a more stimulating social life and take the initiative to make things happen. However, choose your company carefully. Mars in your 11th gives you the need to really express yourself and let off steam. Just ensure those you are with are on the same page. Check your friendships for resonance and their willingness to support who you are. Love shifts forward again even if other areas are telling you to slow down.

Worship that body 

Seal the deal 

Make power moves from the bedroom to the boardroom, Taurus!  

As November begins you have just over two weeks left until ruler Venus heads direct again in your 6th on the 16th. This is not the house of your chart Venus enjoys being in. This is because it is all about routine and service and you of all signs should know, Venus is not about this. However, this is also your house of wellbeing and hopefully you have used this cycle to look closely at what you need to support yourself mind, body and spirit. To feel good without tipping into over-indulgence. The body beautiful? Venus says worship it!

The first week of the month sees Uranus leave your 1st and head back into your 12th again on the 6th. We also have a new Moon in your relationship sector on the 7th. Yes, this new Moon often marks the beginning of a relationship but please keep in mind your ruler and the ruler of your love life is still retrograde! This is more about looking at what you need in relationships but may not be admitting – or want to admit to someone. Use this time to open up honestly if you are in a relationship even if you secretly fear what the other person may say or do. This is a ‘Truth or Consequences’ time for you. The consequences of not telling the truth mean living a lie even if you are avoiding things because you do not want to shake up the status quo or upset others’ feelings. Opt for the truth – no matter how inconvenient instead.

Don’t worry. Those new beginnings in love will be back on the table once Venus moves forward and arrives back in its ruling 7th. In the interim, you reclaiming an old love or just the self-love that’s been missing could be one unexpected benefit coming your way now. Big benefits especially via things you share with others are hallmarks of Jupiter in your 8th. It’s been 12 years since the planet of generosity, luck and abundance was last in your powerful 8th house. Jupiter’s presence in here boosts empowerment and confidence in your decisions. This underscores what’s happening with that new Moon. You’ll feel the fear – and have the courage to do it anyway if you now see changes are necessary.

If you were 18 or over 12 years ago, then think back to that period as you are likely to see the same themes emerging again. In traditional astrology, Jupiter in here is said to denote you being the recipient of a legacy. However, Jupiter will transit this house in your chart many times during your lifetime and it is highly unlikely you will find yourself the beneficiary of a will every time. This is however one benefit which could come your way during this cycle. The other is someone giving you access to their own resources – anything from money to property, a car or even a horse! If so, treat what you are given as your own. You are the protector and custodian of it. This is important to remember during this cycle. If you are given access to other people’s money – please be honest and transparent in all your dealings. You may find yourself handling larger sums of money during the next 13 months – especially after Uranus re-enters your sign in March 2019. The world will reflect your value and this could be via a salary increase, corporate benefits or perks, getting approval for a loan or a mortgage or receiving a payout of some kind.  Watch closely what happens around your work and career this month especially around the 9th when Venus will trine Mars in your status sector while Jupiter impacts on the North Node in your 4th. This is all about the long term now.

Change and transformation could occur around a key relationship too. The day after Venus heads direct, Mercury will turn retrograde in your 8th from the 17th until Dec 6. All the usual Retrograde Rules apply here especially when it comes to taking out loans and making big decisions which impact on your future. However, if a key relationship is tied up with all this, the energy released by Jupiter’s entry in here combined with this Mercury retrograde may see you tackling what needs to be done once and for all.

Anything that has been hanging in abeyance should be dealt with now. You need to create a clean slate on which to write a fresh chapter. The Sun’s entry in here on the 22nd has you looking closely at the support you receive from other people. Now this can be in the form of your boss – are you being rewarded for the effort you put in? Or those closest to you – do you feel valued and loved? If it’s  your sexual partner – do you feel desired? One other aspect of Jupiter in your 8th is an increased sex drive. You’ll be keen to explore and express your passion. Is this happening? On a deeper level, you’ll also crave more intimacy. The question Jupiter asks you is: are you getting enough? If not, Jupiter invites you to make the changes necessary in order to do just that. Once Venus is direct once more from the 16th, singles could see their mojo skyrocket. Be on the lookout for that lover who will invite you to leave the familiar behind and take you on a journey towards unexplored love and desire! One warning – if you are coupled-up and your present partner is not up for the exploration, then it is likely you will attract someone who is. This is said without judgment. Jupiter in here can reawaken lost passion between you but please be aware that it cannot reignite a flame that has been extinguished for good. Jupiter can and will however, make saying goodbye easier than at other times.

This month’s full Moon on the 23rd occurs in your emotionally identifying 23nd house. It’s going to evolve around feelings of value and worth. Yes, this is your money house and so often our feelings determine what it is we receive – in terms of our pay and our treatment from others. Jupiter in your 8th has triggered deep, unexplored themes around intimacy and values. This full Moon may bring some of these to the surface now as it opposes Jupiter and sets of ruler Venus and Uranus in your 12th. I could say this will bring up home truths around how you are treated and rewarded as well as what adds or detracts to or from your overall wellbeing. Just who has a role to play in this – in other words the relationships that are assets to you and those who are not, will be well and truly illuminated for you. You’ll see how one person or relationship in particular is in fact, totally on your side just a few days later as the Sun and Jupiter meet. Large sums of money could change hands or you seal some kind of major deal or agreement as you ring in the changes this November, Taurus.

In a nutshell: That mojo of yours just received a major injection of passion and sex appeal. Thank Jupiter in your 8th from this week onwards. Time for passion – and to receive what you’re worth.

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.
