TAURUS FORECAST (4/19 – 5/20/21)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY & SOLAR RETURN!  You’re the star of the show this month, so let your light shine out!  With the Sun, as well as Mercury, Venus & Uranus, in TAURUS, you are highly charismatic and magnetic now, particularly on 4/19, 22-23, 25, 30, 5/11 (New Moon), 12 & 17.  Your steady, supportive & comfortable presence will attract others to you, so enjoy the attention and social activity that’s swirling around you!  This is also an ideal time to upgrade your self-image and enhance your appearance (perhaps a facial, different hairstyle or some new clothes).

Be sure to acknowledge your significant others around 4/26 with the Full Moon in TAURUS/SCORPIO; strive for consensus and mutuality in your one-on-one relationships.  Avoid power struggles, stand your ground and align your energies to achieve peaceful, productive outcomes.  Teamwork makes the dream work!

With Uranus—the planet of change, freedom & awakening—in your sign these days, your personal identity & lifestyle has been undergoing some major rearrangements. Life could be quite unpredictable, yet magical, with the Venus-Uranus conjunction (4/22), the Mercury-Uranus conjunction (4/23), the Sun-Uranus conjunction (4/30) and the Mars-Uranus sextile (5/11).  Be patient, however, with any obstacles or delays regarding your personal or professional goals that may arise on 4/24 (Venus-Saturn square), on 4/25 (Mercury/Saturn square) and on 5/3 (Sun-Saturn square).  Things will stabilize & clear up after this, especially on 5/12 (Mercury-Saturn trine) and on 5/19 (Venus-Saturn trine).

From 4/23 on (for the upcoming 6 weeks), you’ll feel a strong desire for mental stimulation, connection with others and increased mobility.  Restless & inquisitive, you’ll want to get back into circulation, exchange ideas & information, get in touch with siblings, relatives & neighbors – and hit the road.  Variety is the spice of life!

You’ll be refocusing on finances, food & feelings from 5/3 on.  It’s a time to balance your accounts, analyze your expenditures and check out new sources of income or investment opportunities.  Diversity is the name of the game.  After 5/8, when Venus (your planet) moves on to GEMINI, self-care, personal needs, diet & nutritional matters will become priorities.  Stock up on necessities and refill the fridge.  You will likely feel like baking, cooking and trying out new recipes.

Friendships, group activities and social alliances will be amplified once Jupiter enters PISCES on 5/13; during the next 2-1/2 months, it will be to your benefit to join up with those who share your interests & ideals.  Cooperative efforts, creative collaborations and cultural events will enhance your life — there is much to be shared & enjoyed.  It’s going to be a pleasurable start to your personal new year!

LONG-TERM FORECAST:  You’ll be experiencing a renewed spirit of adventure, expansiveness and optimism while Pluto is in the sign CAPRICORN (20082024).  During this inspiring 16-year cycle, you’ll be exploring new territory, extending your vistas and communicating with others on a global scale – the world is your playground!  Travel, education, writing, publishing, marketing & promotional matters will take top priority.  Your belief systems will undergo a transformational process, as you’ll be investigating higher levels of consciousness and seeking greater understanding of your place in the cosmic scheme of things.  Maintain a positive outlook, stay in integrity with yourself and your ideals, and – most of all – tell the truth!

While Neptune transits PISCES (2012-2026), a subtle shift is taking place within your social life.  During this 14-year cycle, outgrown friendships & alliances will be dissolving, making way for those who deeply share similar interests, ideals, visions & spiritual values. Expect some mystical, magical connections! You may find yourself participating more in music, art and cultural activities during this transit.

With unpredictable Uranus now in TAURUS (5/15/18—4/25/26), you’re beginning to express yourself in more original, unconventional ways and live with greater freedom and spontaneity in your everyday life.  During this 7-year cycle, you’re being challenged to get off the beaten path, step out of your comfort zones and explore alternative approaches in living your life.  Do things differently!

Your personal & professional goals will begin to undergo a major restructuring while Saturn transits AQUARIUS (3/217/1/20 and 12/16/203/7/23). You can can assume a greater sense of responsibility, mastery and leadership in your chosen field.  Whether you’re building a new career, solidifying your current one, running an organization or simply wanting greater control over your life, you could achieve your objectives with patience, discipline and conscientious effort.  During this 3-year cycle, much can be accomplished of long-lasting value; go for what you want — you’re likely to get it!

With Jupiter also in AQUARIUS (12/19/2012/28/21), it’s time to take your personal & professional goals to new heights.  You can look forward to career opportunities and advancement, so develop your leadership skills and get prepared for increased public visibility and professional success!  You may find yourself surrounded with powerful, ambitious people who will encourage you to shoot for the stars! It could be helpful to review what was going on in your life when this same cycle was in effect 12 years ago (1/5/091/17/10).

Once Jupiter take its initial steps into PISCES (5/13—7/28/21), you’ll be uplifted & inspired through joining up with like-minded individuals who share your interests & ideals.  This will be a sneak preview of what’s ahead once Jupiter re-enters PISCES on 12/28/21.
