TAURUS APRIL 19 – MAY 19
LIFESTYLE, CAREER AND GOALS
There are many varieties of successes, and during the past 12 months, since September 2016, when the fortunate Jupiter moved to accent your life, you began a cycle of growth and exploration.
Of course, it may not have seemed that way initially. At first you were put in one unexpected, strange or unwelcome situation after another. Only now that you’re looking back on these is it clear how much you’ve learnt, who you’ve met and how events broadened your horizons.
So now, with August’s two eclipses introducing yet more that’s unfamiliar, you’ll recognise those surprises as opportunities, if in disguise. The secret is to explore everything, including what holds little promise or, perhaps, you’re sure you’d hate. Maybe. But circumstances have changed and so, too, have you.
If it’s about work, possibly redefining your role, give it a try. If it’s about a new daily regime, dare to be different. In every case, this is preparing you for the experiences and encounters that will improve your life. While some will be no surprise, others will be as unexpected as, ultimately, they’ll be thrilling.
You quite rightly pride yourself on your ability to maintain your cool, and your much admired clear perspective, even when there’s confusion around you and others are anxious, if not struggling to impose order on chaos.
While you might feel just as uneasy, you long ago learnt there’s nothing to be gained by – to use the clever phrase – turning a crisis into a drama. Rather, you’ll withdraw quietly, consider realistic options, then take action on whatever seems wisest.
Yet, as you’ll already have noticed, this year is about venturing into new and often very unfamiliar territory, but in terms of making and dealing with money. True, the way this side of life functions is changing. But most Taureans, whether in or out of the financial business, will select a range of investments that mix the safe or traditional methods with a few exciting and possibly unproven ventures. It’s the same with your skills or talents. Often you’ll need to renegotiate.
What’s most important, and ultimately beneficial are those situations where events draw you into new activities, ways of thinking and even working. Far out, if not unrealistic, as these seem initially, ultimately you’ll recognise how profitable they are.
FAMILY AND RELATIONSHIPS
As a Taurus, and somebody ruled by the planet that accents relationships of all varieties, Venus, you invest a lot of thought, time, energy, and most importantly heart, into creating and maintaining healthy alliances with those around you. In fact, others are drawn to you because of this charm and your caring attitude.
Yet when tensions arise, as they will have around the time of eclipses during the first half of 2017, on February 11 and 26, you were unsure what to say or do. Since then, you’ve been able to observe both the situations others were dealing with and, equally, when the moment was right, you encouraged them to talk and you did a lot of listening.
So now, as you’re looking ahead to the year’s second half, you’re optimistic. The fact is, it’s about finding a new balance, both in family and longstanding relationships. But in those that are new or, if you’re seeking somebody special, patience is essential.
On October 10, the fortunate Jupiter moves to accent all such alliances, and from that point onward, while tensions will melt, new, often unexpected and life-enhancing encounters will restore your faith in life – and in love.
YOUR ECLIPSE BREAKTHROUGH
Issues on the domestic or work front reach a head, then lead to constructive discussions and profitable, if completely unexpected, breakthroughs.
What’s most important, and beneficial are those situations where EVENTS DRAW you into new activities, ways of thinking and even working. Far out, if not unrealistic, ultimately you’ll recognise how PROFITABLE they are
