This is another fascinating month for you Taurus, when the seismic shift that has been taking place in your belief systems comes to a something of a head. This also involves educational and travel initiatives, as well as evolving worldview, and your higher mind consciousness, all in flux. You have always been cautious and practical in your approval of new ways to conceptualize this life, and yet there has lately been loads of inspiration upon you to take a flyer and allow yourself to dream into novel approaches to seeing the world around you. You might need to be able to go beyond either-or as you reconceptualize your universe. A peak of intensity in this internal drama will arise in the timing of the Cancer Full Moon eclipse of January 10th and the days immediately following. You might find a way forward where you escape previous limitations to your point of view, through compromise, and will want to be asking yourself whether it might just be only your fears that are holding you back.

Welcome to 2020, Taurus! The New Year arrives and with this new beginning, a new way of being arises also. It has become apparent that you have shed a tremendous weight, if only psychological, in 2019, and you are feeling extremely ready to embrace some new found perspectives in the year ahead. Quite a lot of the astrological action right now is happening in Capricorn and Taurus. The New Year begins with a stellium in Capricorn challenging you to align with newfound philosophies and realizations. The work within you also continues regarding long-held assumptions about what life is and what it all means. Fundamentally, Taurus seeks peace, ease, and the ability to feel deeply rooted and connected in her experience of life. Complicated philosophies and theories about the meaning of existence is not where you find your joy. It is often in the application of simple rules to live in accordance with nature that your strength in found. Happiness is the sensual experience and beauty of living fully embodied in the present tense; you are such a natural when it comes to that. With disrupting and revolutionary Uranus transiting in your sign in the last year you have however started to question long held habits and patterns in your life. A tremendous urge for more spaciousness, movement and experiences has been informing many of your recent decisions and it will continue to be that way throughout much if not all of 2020.
On January 3rd, Mars leaves Scorpio and enters Sagittarius until February 16th. This implies that negotiations around shared assets, debts or funding that have been taking place since last October might come to the forefront. Also, with your ruler Venus transiting in Aquarius until January 13th, much of your attention is on career and work. You could be busy envisioning new possibilities for yourself in regards to your work, and there are plenty of opportunities to innovate. You might be one of the only signs, along with Virgo, which can truly benefit from all the heavy planetary action happening in Capricorn. It doesn’t mean that life is easy for you now, but it means that with proper planning and realistic goal-setting, you can get a lot accomplished this year, especially if you are willing to take a few calculated risks.
A Lunar Eclipse takes place in the sign of Cancer on January 10th bringing attention to the way you communicate and also interact with your surroundings. With Cancer being a Water sign, this eclipse highlights the importance of having a gentle and caring approach in your dealings with others. You can benefit from adopting a compassionate and understanding tone in your relationship connections. This eclipse also highlights the logistics of your everyday life and how supportive your neighborhood and immediate surroundings actually are for you. Take stock of all the small joys that are found in your everyday happenings, including even your commute, and how these contribute on a regular basis to your feeling of belonging.
On January 13th, your ruler Venus enters her exalted home of Pisces and this is good news for you Taurus folks. It should be easier to find common ground and to be in good accord in your dealings with others; its a good time to mend the frazzled wires. Social gatherings and activities are also highlighted in the second half of the month and you might find yourself getting busier with socializing, and events taking place in your community. If you have been considering getting some bodywork, modifying your appearance, or revamping your image, now would be a great time to do so while Venus is in Pisces. Venus transiting here until February 7th, represents an excellent period for all artistic and pleasurable things. However, you might find your motivation for long strenuous efforts decreasing which is a small side-effect of being ruled by Venus, planet of ease and comfort.
The Sun enters Aquarius on January 20th, highlighting career, vocations and your public image. A New Moon takes place in Aquarius a few days later on January 24th bringing forth and inspiring resets in the part of your life connected to career. There is so much space for innovative ideas in your life right now and your skills and experience could be in high demand. It’s only a matter of choosing wisely what it is that you want to be doing as you might be presented with many options to choose from. The New Moon in Aquarius could also bring new opportunities to extend your reach and impact.
