Taurus - October 2018
Hi Taurus! Those everyday tasks and chores will keep you busy in October, as the Sun shines a light on your work zone until the 23rd! This should be a high energy time, in which you can achieve pretty much anything you set your mind to with a little hard work and a positive approach. Others in your work place will be inspired by your motivation, so don’t be surprised if you suddenly find yourself, voluntarily or otherwise, in a position of leadership or responsibility. Diets and fitness plans are well-favoured, especially around the new Moon of the 9th; physical activity will also be strongly linked to spiritual development this month, hence you may decide to take a yoga class or engage in a sport which offers you contemplation and reflection time. Pluto and the Sun in square during the first week of the month could send some issues over training or overseas travel connected with your work; these should ease as we reach mid-month.
If you are feeling the urge to connect intellectually with your partner, Mercury’s arrival in your house of relationships on the 11th will offer you the chance; this is in an excellent period for sharing thoughts and opinions with loved ones and discussing any unresolved issues which require logical and open discussion. Venus joins the conversation from the 12th to 18th, a fantastic time to declare feelings of affection to your loved one or talk about sensitive issues. Just watch for conflict from Uranus during this week, your feelings could be a little changeable and it may be best to wait until his influence wanes before making any important decisions connected to emotions. Mercury conjuncts Jupiter after the 24th, a fortunate aspect which will attract benevolent, wise and thoughtful people into your world. If you are hoping to meet someone special now, look for them in teaching, writing or the legal profession.
The full Moon illuminates your sign on the 24th, a time for focussing on your own goals and treating yourself to some extra rest and relaxation. If you are feeling a little more agitated than usual, don’t be concerned, it’s just the Moon’s way of turning your attention inward. Bulls with an April birthday will be especially susceptible to this need to escape the world and its problems, and may encounter some stress-related issues such as headaches or sleeplessness for a couple of days. If your birthday falls during the first week of May, you will also experience the effects of Venus turning retrograde over your natal Sun during the first fortnight in October. This is likely to be a time when emotions run high and it is harder than usual to resolve your problems with reason and objectivity. Decisions you make at this time will have very significant consequences that will linger until early December.
Pluto sextiles Neptune throughout the month, an aspect very positive for connecting with spiritual or religious groups which share your beliefs and values. Pluto is also moving forward again from the 1st, which will make your path in this area of your world seem clearer; doubts over your spiritual views should be resolved and you will feel more confident about letting the world know what you believe in. Chiron is back in your house of friendships now, too, offering you a chance to continue the healing process which began early in 2018, around difficult friends who have been draining your energy for a long time. Another chance will arise now to resolve your differences, whether you decide to take it is entirely your call! Have a wonderful October!
