Taurus Horoscope (April 20 - May 20)
Your ruling planet is Venus.
This is a huge transition month for you, Taurus, extending through the first week of December. Relationship with significant others in your life occupies an important place in your heart right now, and is also on your mind, in the sense that you are trying both to imagine a better way through and to analyze the possibilities. This applies to past partnerships as well as to present ones, and to past patterns of relationship interaction as well as to what is to come. By means of inner deliberation you are becoming more integrated in your outer approach. And by getting a better handle on what has occurred you are in a good position to assess what might eventually be available to your more enlightened future self.
As the month begins, you are coming on strong in terms of partnership with others, feeling your way through to greater connection with future relationships as you grow and also coming to a better understanding of prior ones. You are in a great position now to explore more thoroughly than ever before your current partnership strategy. You are coming to important realizations concerning how and why you do relationship, brought on by a perfect storm of circumstances combined with your own readiness to hear the message. The New Moon of Friday, November 5th, takes place in your partnership sector, and so traditionally would be associated with a fresh start in this important area of life. Additionally, however, your ruler Venus is retrograding through this same sector, and just now beginning to fully separate from the Sun, while Mars, which currently disposits Venus, resides nearby in your sector of intimate connection and personal evolution, so that you are profoundly analyzing the deep internal places within you for relationship motivation and as well for echoes of the past. All this is happening within an intriguing context of tremendous learning coupled with spiritual intuition from deep inside, so that this time is ripe for revelation. The First Quarter Moon a week later, taking place on Saturday, November 13th, represents a time when you might see even further into the mysteries of your own inner process, and yet a time as well when illusion could potentially confound you. It might also be that old patterns of behavior will come up for you at this time, hopefully for greater conscious attention and eventual healing. You are also detecting the way that partners contribute to or possibly subtract from your outer world presence, and the links between these two important areas of your life. You are attempting to come to terms with important issues here, making up for lost time. As your ruler Venus turns to direct movement on Thursday the 18th, there is a distinct shift in the energy. It is a hopeful moment. Then with the Full Moon of Sunday, November 21st, you are poised for breakthrough. There are many layers of the onion and you cannot expect to peel them all at once, but progress is being made, the more so the more you keep your head up and your eyes open, remaining alert to all your possibilities.
