Taurus (20 April – 20 May)
Your ruling planet, Venus, enters fire sign Sagittarius on the 1st, where it remains until the 26th. Sagittarius rules joint finances and money transactions in your horoscope. It’s about the ties that bind you, financially and emotionally.
These areas of your life are where to focus your attention as the end of November could bring a breakthrough. Sagittarius is a star sign linked to luck and opportunity. This is a good time for you to dream big and get ready to take a risk or become involved in a speculative venture that could boost your prospects.
Be wary, however, on or around the 14th when Venus runs into Neptune in Pisces. This combination can lead you astray. Or, you find yourself feeling disheartened about the projects you’re working on or your money prospects.
This would be a good time to stay away from a friend who you know will disapprove of what you’re doing. Neptune’s linked to illusion and it’s easy to be seduced or fooled when Neptune’s strong.
Ideally, you’re wise not to get involved with anything new until after the 20th. Mercury, the communication planet, is retrograde until then and is currently in Scorpio and your partnership sector. You can’t trust everyone you come into contact with during this Mercury retrograde phase.
What you’re working towards is the last week of the month when there are two stunning planetary factors coming together. Firstly, on the 24th, there’s a gorgeous Venus-Jupiter conjunction in Sagittarius. The two best planets coming together in one of the money sectors of your horoscope. This is when anything you’re working towards could pay off big-time.
And, note that Jupiter will leave Sagittarius and this sector of your horoscope on December 2nd. Therefore, this could be a last chance to profit from Jupiter’s bounty and abundance. The Venus-Jupiter connection spells good news for investments and new financial transactions. Also, the possibility to break free from a bond or tie that’s held you back.
The Venus-Jupiter aspect falls two days before a New Moon in Sagittarius on the 26th. Again, this is promising for you and the ideal time to set something new in progress. You may find the funds you need for a big project, to travel or study. You may receive a gift or bonus or have your faith in the universe restored. This is a good time to sign or seal a financial deal as you’re likely to find the best rates. It’s lovely astrology.
Relationships are a mixed bag this month. So, when it comes to money matters and your own good fortune, don’t rely too heavily on other people. Trust your instincts and keep your affairs separate. Some joint ventures will pay off, especially if they peak around the 24th-26th. Others may not do so well.
Also, there’s a possibility that you need to look after someone else in your life or support someone close. Mars is your partner planet in Libra and your work and health sector. Mars clashes with Pluto on the 5th and this is an ongoing run of challenges which began on October 13th, developed on October 27th and continue as November begins.
Full Moon Taurus
This could mean your partner is out of work or having health issues. It could flag up challenges for yourself in these areas of your life. The turning point is the Full Moon in your star sign, Taurus, on the 12th. This is a powerful Full Moon, which suggests a safe harbour. On the same day, Mars teams up with Jupiter in Sagittarius, a glimmer of hope or good fortune.
Listen out for a revelation around this period in the month. There’s a Sun/Mercury conjunction on the 11th which can bring clarity or insight. Mercury remains retrograde during this phase but the light of the Moon is illuminating and the Sun adds an extra blast of consciousness. Pay attention to your thoughts and ideas that emerge during the Full Moon period. It’s likely that they’re spot on.
This is when you’ll know how to help someone close in your life. And, what to do about a key relationship or partnership. With Mercury diving deep into Scorpio, allow yourself to feel your emotions fully.
There are often hidden riches lurking in the deep, dark places. It would be a good time to go into couples therapy if this is relevant for you. Or use your natural down-to-earth common sense to be there for a person dear to your heart. It’s a complex month so take your time and don’t rush into things.
Mars gains strength on the 19th when it enters Scorpio, the day before Mercury turns direct in Scorpio on the 20th. These dates, therefore, are likely to be decisive for you with regard to a close relationship or partnership. You may hear news on or around this date, especially if you’ve been waiting to hear from someone close.
This could be when someone kicks into life and takes decisive action. Engage fully with your 1-to-1’s. Mars in Scorpio is assertive and strong. Events on or near the 24th look significant for your partnerships. This is when Mars opposes Uranus in your star sign, Taurus.
This combination often brings a change or a twist to your current situation. As it falls on the day of the Venus/Jupiter conjunction, there could be a win but a loss. You gain on the one hand but lose on the other.
Try not to get emotionally involved in other people’s business this month and be wary of deeper emotions lurking, such as jealousy or obsession. This is Scorpio’s domain. It’s extremely passionate too, so some of you may be caught up in a big love affair. However, it’s easy to fall too deep when you’d benefit from coming up for air.
Friends & Adventure
The areas of your life where you’re wise to keep focused and which will ground you are your plans for the future and your friendships. These could be particularly important on or around the weekend of the 8th-10th.
Also, later in the month, once your ruler, Venus, moves into earth sign Capricorn on the 26th, don’t lose sight of your long-term goals and dreams. The 28th is great for being spontaneous and saying Yes to a new experience or adventure.
