Taurus - April 2020
Hi Taurus! Venus makes a beeline for your sign on the 6th of March, where she is all set to decorate your world with beautiful people and activities! This is a wonderful period for paying attention to your personal appearance; you are more likely to be concerned about how attractive you are or how you look, and you may feel like a makeover or change of image. Venus and Uranus form an electric conjunction here between the 6th and 14th which could lead to some rather drastic alterations in your personal life; this could also be a time of unexpected romantic encounters. Your need for peace and harmony is also likely to increase under Venus’s influence, and this applies not just to your relationships, but also your environment. Sprucing up your work or domestic surroundings will make you feel more content. A strong urge for spiritual enlightenment when Venus trines Pluto after the 23rd also encourages you to work on your psychic skills.
Mercury makes a brief return to your career sector between the 5th and 16th, where he turns direct on the 10th after his recent retrograde period. This is a time for getting back on track following administration or paperwork problems, which prevented you from achieving your goals during the first week in February. Taureans with a birthday around the 15th to 20th of April will probably feel the most frustrated by this transit, as Mercury hovers over your natal Sun until mid-month. Saturn also makes an important sign change on the 23rd, and will be settling in this part of your chart for the next two years. Saturn pushes us to face the consequences of our actions and decisions, and as we reach the end of the month you may begin to notice increased pressure on you in working life to prove yourself and show what you know.
Lunar activity in March begins with a full Moon on the 9th in your house of love and romance, and letting go of outdated love relationships which are not really adding anything positive to your life is the game here. Similarly, potential love affairs which haven’t really taken off may need to be nipped in the bud so that you can finally move on. Opposition from Neptune adds some rather confusing feelings to this emotional mix, so take care that you are making the right choices for your needs. The new Moon on the 24th turns attention to your house of secrets and hidden feelings, and private information might be revealed now about you or someone close. Although initially a little disquieting, the ultimate freedom from the restrictions placed on you by having to keep this knowledge a secret will be truly liberating! The new Moon’s conjunction with Chiron could take you into a period of social seclusion for some reason, and this time will benefit you and allow you to reflect on your current life goals.
As Mars begins to make his presence felt in your travel sector, your sense of adventure is likely to increase, and you may find yourself booking holidays to all manner of mysterious and exciting locations! If you have been musing for some time over whether a permanent relocation abroad is for you, this is the time to go for it; you won’t regret it. Mars’s conjunction with Jupiter after the 12th is also fabulous for study of all kinds, expanding your mind will be the key aim here and you will be especially interested in, and successful at, studies connected to philosophy, religious studies, politics and ethics. Have a marvellous March!
