Taurus (Apr 20 - May 20)
Taurus: This month we have a mighty pair of eclipses, which will be visible across the United States, and will build upon themes begun in February when we had the last pair of eclipses in the signs of Leo and Aquarius. But briefly, Mercury will Retrograde this month in Virgo, a sign it rules, in your house of creative ventures, so you might be pouring over old documents and checking twice your personal investments and speculations, for there might be something important to glean here. You could also during this time connect well to someone you already have or used to have an established relationship with. And Venus this month will traverse Cancer and oppose from a wide and then close range Pluto in Capricorn, thus intensifying your mental sphere, making it deeply personal. Pluto has for some time been uprooting your sensibilities in the house of your objective mind, foreign connections, and public institutions, making your discoveries profoundly connected to your own ego, to the desperate notions of the world, and here Venus personalizes Pluto's progress in this realm and brings what you have learned close at hand, through friendship and every day connection, and turns it into a broader epiphany of sorts. But let's move on--the Lunar Eclipse will fall on August 7th at 15 degrees Aquarius in your house of career, will oppose Mars in your house of core motives and individual power, and be supported via trine by Jupiter in your house of routines, habits, and health. Indeed the Lunar Eclipse in your house of career could bring to fruition profound changes in your public role, towards a more decided position of power, as the planet of power itself--Mars--is involved deep within, making your motivation of the unvanquishable sort. Mars in the inner house I think tends to work well; it turns the drive towards the deeper emotional parts of being and internalizes and hides away strength so that, with the right timing and the right amount of patience, bold, upsetting moves can be undertaken, usually with great success. Jupiter supports your readiness as well, brings proper timing, upholds your faith, and suggests good health. On August 21st will be the Solar Eclipse, conjunct the fixed star Regulus, and involved in a powerful, bold configuration--a grand trine of the fire signs with Uranus and Saturn. For you the Solar Eclipse will hit that house of deep personal power, of core motivation, and align with Uranus in your house of secrets and undoings, and Saturn in your house of deeper relationship and joint finances. It seems that you might experience profound inner changes at this time, that the Solar Eclipse could trigger an inner illumination as to what you really want to seek in yourself, what makes you whole, what makes you vital and connected; Uranus' position suggests that you have let go of ideas of who you were previously, of the way things should be, and that you open yourself to the unknown greater than ever before, and Saturn brings financial prudence as well as deeply embroiled feeling made to work in your favor, but bridled, not unleashed. The outlet for these changes might be coming further down the road, but something important begins this month in you, that will, I believe, become more evidently manifest when Uranus crosses your ascendant and imbues your being fully with its fearlessness in the next year.
