Taurus Horoscope (April 20 - May 20)
Your ruling planet is Venus.
You are feeling a joyful energy for change these days Taurus, and it is a truly spiritual direction that you are taking. As you contemplate your future now nothing makes sense that does not partake of the numinous and unseen world behind what is available to your senses five. As Whitman puts it you “contain multitudes.” There is a practical side to your desire for self-transcendence now that is appealing and that balances your wilder notions although might also feel limiting in the short term. With so many alternatives presenting themselves to you a certain degree of uncertainty and confusion is also inevitable. Optimistic thinking will take you far, but perhaps you are not meant to so easily get yourself all the way out of this particular dilemma.
As the month begins, you are investigating your communication skills. These are vital for your continued progress in dealing successfully with the tide of transformative new perspectives lately coming down upon your head. Nothing is as you formerly believed it to be, or at least not entirely so. This makes for a confusing vision of your future, but one that is exciting in its wide-open sense of possibility. Conferring with your peers might be the very best way for you to get a better handle on exactly what you are faced with, going forward. The energy of the powerful Solar Eclipse in your third sector stemming from the very beginning of the month will carry you far, and enhance all forms of connection with everyone around you. A numinous and otherworldly vision of what is unseen also begins to emerge and to influence your decision-making. Far from creating dissent, partnership and collegial collaboration engenders useful discussion that enables you to understand more clearly your own point of view. The First Quarter Moon of late Thursday evening and early Friday, July 7th and 8th, adds further layers to this interactive picture, and also might serve to drive home to you a serious cast of mind regarding your ultimate sense of spiritual mission. You are increasingly discovering that dreams, plans and schemes for the future do not interest you without being in alignment with a deeper sense of soul purpose. The Full Moon of Friday night and Thursday morning, July 14th and 15th, sets off a relatively peaceful period of time when higher mind considerations take precedence and conflicts may ease. This mid-month period is also a time when partnership interaction is heightened. You are seeking and perhaps finding a balance between working with others and working out your own self-investigation. You are also more actively exploring your inner depths, taking up your role as spiritual warrior. Although your forward momentum is slowed in areas of outer performance and everyday affairs, this gives you an even better opportunity for meditative journeying within. The Last Quarter Moon of Friday, July 22nd, represents a time when you are summing up all that you have learned thus far in the cycle of energy stemming from the New Moon eclipse. You are feeling into your psychological core center now and finding a new sense of refuge there, one based on the merit of your increased understanding of your own depths. All through this month you have been finding new ways to be in interaction with significant partners in your life, and coming to a way of reaching out to others that is not leaning either toward them or away but rather forms a more equal interchange. This is an important consideration as you head into the following month. Then you will be centering yourself even further as you consider issues of home and family or tribe, leading toward a greater resultant sense of internal security.
