Taurus (Apr 20 - May 20)
Taurus: January begins with full-out activity this year, there's no denying. On January 2nd is a rare-rare Supermoon, not only because it begins 2018 with the biggest moon we shall see in the sky until 2019, but because it engages six planets in a kite, which is an extremely fortuitous and not so common configuration. For you this wondrous kite which literally points the way to a manifestation of your blessings falls along the axis of mind. The Moon at 11 degrees Cancer makes a direct opposing connection to Pluto and Venus aligned in your ninth house of objective understanding as well as involvement with organizations of higher thought: colleges, courts of law, religious houses, as well as ruling countries whose ways are foreign to us. Venus and Pluto unite as the most passionate, fully engaged, and in depth pair possible in the zodiac in this higher house of the mind and so, as Venus is your ruler, there is incredible emphasis here this month. Not to mention that the kite means that this power opposition is flanked and supported by Mars and Jupiter from your house of relationships, belying some solid support from your partner, intimate or in business, as well as Neptune from your house of vast social connections. The Moon in the third house, shining its full light, and come into manifestation, indicates that your power of close observation is as clear as it can be. At this time incredible shifts could happen―you might be offered work in a foreign country, for example, you could turn a corner in a court case of intense importance to you, you could begin college or finish it, become ordained in a faith, or simply experience an epiphany which shuttles down to your core and shifts your basic philosophy of life. Mars, Jupiter, and Neptune suggest influence from a social group, and one person in particular, which funnels a feeling of support into this click in your mind; perhaps this month you act as a bridge for people between schools of thought. But I must move on as there is also a Lunar Eclipse at month's end. The New Moon on the 17th builds on these themes further, also engaging many planets in Capricorn: Pluto, Venus, and this time at odds with Uranus from your house of the unconscious. Here the theme falls squarely in that house of objective and higher processes of thought, and with the second involvement of Venus-Pluto, is suggestive of following your passion to a new open door. If events seem close to boiling over early in the month but you couldn't exactly pinpoint your heart's feelings, by the 17th of January, something clear emerges from within you, or even by signs from without. The square with Uranus signifies to me that any leap you take now is in direct defiance of your fears. Uranus looms from the house of secrets, repressions, but is in power there, dislodging what dogs you unconsciously and floating it up to the light. You may feel triggered at this time, sensitive to stimulants, but I do think a leap of faith is in order. And finally, the Lunar Eclipse on the last day of January will have a quieter reception, only distantly linked in an opposition to Venus, and falling at 11 degrees Leo. But this hits a deep chord in your chart, the house of core beliefs, inherited traits, and your basic impetus in life towards what you would have manifested as your role in society; here are your blunt talents and your basic nature, with the Sun passing overhead in your house of career. Yes, this suggests that your inner engagement, your inner harmony, and an ear attuned to your real needs has repercussions in the world, as to what you can become and are capable of doing. The most vital movements are first contemplated in silence, and this theme could bear fruits for you now if that has been your mantra. Whatever occurred this month to change your perspective now starts to make waves at the depth of your soul, and then, can shift your actual career path. It may be that a career unfolds that you didn't think previously you were worthy of, or had the credentials for. It could also be that you lay aside what was a busy career to work on your inner self. A Solar Eclipse, which will really ignite new opportunity mid February, will capitalize on this Moon which speaks to your deeper self by perhaps lying at your feet a path to sharing that self with the world.
