Taurus - May 2020
Hi there, Taurus! Something spectacular is stirring for bulls in April, as the new Moon on the 23rd floods every corner of your world with fresh start energy! This is a time for stepping out of your comfort zone and expressing that creative drive and talent which lies at the centre of your inner nature; opportunities to try something different and exciting will be prolific. The Moon’s conjunction with Uranus at this time could add an unexpected, unusual spin to these experiences, and if you are trying a new look, diet or fitness regime now, you will be feeling impulsive about your choices and could go for a drastic, head-turning change. Saturn’s involvement here might cloud the positive atmosphere just a little, as responsibilities at work weigh heavy, and prevent you from expressing yourself as you would like. You may also feel stifled by your family at this time, as their unrealistic expectations of you cause some resentment.
Pluto heads into retrograde motion on the 26th, after spending the entire month slowing down almost to a standstill in your house of learning and travel. Attempts to enhance your knowledge and awareness of the universe could prove a tricky business now, as uncertainty about which way you are headed generates a feeling of oppressive inertia, which seems to prevent you making important choices. It’s not the best of periods for making notable decisions about studying or any matters connected to different countries and vacationing, you will feel more sure of what you want as May approaches. Pluto’s intense conjunction with Jupiter, which will persist now until December is, on the other hand, rather marvellous for attending to your spiritual needs. A highly compassionate and psychic combination of traits, this aspect will take you on a journey to discover your higher self, and in this process enhance your spiritual and intuitive practice.
The full Moon on the 6th of April brings a change to your everyday work and routines, as upheavals in day to day life become apparent. You may leave your current job for something altogether different now, and it you are staying put, significant amendments to procedures or surroundings are likely. Mars will help you to focus on your future, as he tears through your career sector, making plans for where he expects you to be next on the road to absolute success! His connection with Saturn during the days up to the 11th is a seriously hard-working one, which will allow you to achieve your goals and promote an air of responsibility and competency which is guaranteed to impress the big bosses. He also forms an amiable trine with Venus throughout the month and into early May, an excellent time for making money from artistic and inventive projects. This aspect never quite perfects though as Venus begins to lose speed, therefore there may be a feeling of unfinished business around such ventures, or perhaps of never really achieving what you want.
With the Sun undercover in your house of secrets for the days up to the 19th, energy levels could hit a low point, and you are more inclined to want to spend time by yourself, reflecting and meditating. This isn’t the best periods of the year for socialising, you may feel better if you put off energetic diary dates until the Sun hits your sign during the last week of April. Mercury is also in this area from the 12th to 27th, and conflict with the Moon’s nodes between the 12th and 17th might see private information about you or a family member being revealed. Enjoy your month!
