Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Your ruling planet is Venus.
You are looping your way to a different kind of greatness this month, Taurus. Success is coming your way all right, only not quite the ideal of achievement that you had in mind. You are putting your best foot forward these days and exploring your creativity, which may take you into some unexpected directions, especially at the time of the Lunar Eclipse on the 7th of the month. The inspiration that accompanies your wild ramblings is transformative; one thing you can be sure of, you won't be the same person as when you started.
As the month begins, you find yourself in transition, coming into yourself in a new way after some serious soul-searching. Intimate partners in your life occupy your attention as you struggle to define a true sense of your interaction with them that takes your own center-stage presence into the picture but allows the concerns of others to have their voice as well. You are in possession of an optimistic attitude right now toward the helpfulness of other people in your life. Expecting to get the most out of your partnership connection means that you oftentimes do. The Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse of Thursday, September 7th, raises these and similar feelings to the forefront of your awareness, as a new vision suddenly snaps into place for yourself moving forward. Your future is singing to you right now, and it's a tune that seems like a new one that you only just heard while at the same time being totally familiar. You are in a good place to make your move, since while a visionary attitude leads you onward, your feet are firmly grounded in practicality. The creative tension of this stance does have its difficult moments however, perhaps particularly at the time of the Last Quarter Moon of September 14th, when the potential for risk looms large, at least in your mind, but when the evolutionary pressure is also strong to move on with your life. The New Moon that comes along a week later is another eclipse, an action-oriented one that may find you on the brink of important transformation. It is wonderful right now to just let yourself slide over the lip of the waterfall without regrets. You'll probably go anyway and just think of all the needless worry that you will have saved yourself.
