Taurus Horoscope (April 20 - May 20)
Your ruling planet is Venus.
Your hard work and the spiritual investigation that you have been involved with recently are beginning to pay off, Taurus. This month you are coming out in a big way career-wise, and making your presence in the world more fully known, as you pave the way for an even more exciting spring-time. Especially at the time of the February 20th Full Moon Lunar Eclipse, you are reaching out to others from the perspective of your own inner purpose and it's both refreshing and productive. If you have been doing your homework and keeping faith with your inner guidance, the rewards are there for the taking; if not, you'll just have to buckle down and keep on truckin'.
As the month begins, you are off to an excellent start of a vibrant monthly cycle, with new perspectives leading you onward and with a reshuffling of your reality deck taking place as you subscribe to a different set of rules for your outer world game plan. Mercury is retrograde in your career sector and there could well be challenges associated with this period of time as you attempt to meet changing conditions in your workplace and changes of direction in how you see your path to success. The New Moon and Solar Eclipse that takes place on Wednesday, February 6th presents a push-pull feeling of wanting to get on with it while realizing that the timing is not completely right. There is a tremendous energy that you have right now for seeing and doing things differently so that you may have to struggle to hold onto some form of grounding, or your current drift will prove to be too much of a discontinuity. The First Quarter Moon that comes along a week later, on Wednesday, February 13th, may prove enlightening in this regard, a struggle between public and personal points of view that enlarges your perspective. With the Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse of the 20th, you are likely to be taking future plans more seriously as you focus on where you are going and how you are able to get there. It becomes increasingly important at this time that you take the practical limits of the situation fully into account as you redefine your sense of mission for the future. Your values are shifting at this time, along with the resources which are there to support you as you move forward. These may still be fluctuating somewhat throughout this month of as the retrograde period completes. Remember that it is well to wait if at all possible until the following month before completing any major course corrections.
