Taurus (Apr 20 - May 20)
Taurus: This month, Taurus, seems to be on high-speed with all the personal planets direct, and shifting into Libra, for you a house that has to do with work, busy schedules, health habits, and our physical and mental wellness. It’s a lot of focus there, which tends to put one into automatic over-drive, and exhaust one’s resources. Keep in mind the best way to balance this is to take solitary time, meditate, sleep really well, and make sure there is time to just sit and think. On September 14ththere will be a tricky Full Moon at 21 degrees Pisces, in a house that has to do with your social prowess, your higher ideals for yourself, and wanting to adapt to or change the circumstances of the world. Certainly your ideas and romantic notions of what could be are super expanded upon and ballooned around this time, with Neptune aligned with the Moon, the most fantastical, dream-immersed planet, yet there is hard reality to contend with as well. Mars is opposite in your house of personal joys and projects and expression, as well as love, which puts in plain sight that your physical desires and attachments and physical limitations affect and in a sense determine what is possible on the future-minded plane. You can have your plans and dreams but literally what you’re capable of and your feelings on this earth of love and obligation to others will turn something ethereal and tunnel-visioned into something complex, multi-faceted, and deeper than your own sense of things, when attempted to make tangible. And Jupiter is connecting to this opposition, pressing it into a hard T-square, speaking from your house of deep physical, spiritual, financial obligations, the house of sex and undoing, of relationship tests, and financial binding. So while Neptune breaks open your dream-scope, and humanitarian ideals, Jupiter dangles before you financial, sexual, yet also in a sense spiritual fulfillment. You’re a bit torn between personal desires, and a larger gesture of sacrifice here. Mars determines the physical possibility of it all, propelling you at this time a propensity towards dreams that might be only half-formed, through which you want to “feel it out.” There’s a sort of feeling of barreling ahead, and lack of hesitancy or caution here. Then on September 28ththere’s an unadorned, aloof New Moon at 5 degrees Libra, hitting that habit-oriented, work crazy sphere that affects your mental and physical health. At this time you’ll be grounding yourself back in the realm of the possible, which is probably well-needed after whatever unpredictable loop you got spun into from the Full Moon midmonth. Also a good moment besides paying your bills and adhering to your schedules, to take a deep breath, allow your thoughts to naturally settle where they will, and practice as much patience as the Taurus can manage, which is a lot.
