Taurus - January 2020
Hi Taurus! 2020 is off to a good start, as erratic Uranus finally goes back into forward motion in your sign on the 11th of January! Make a note of this date; it is from this point that you should notice a shift in your emotional happiness, as that persistent restless, impulsive energy which seemed to have no real outlet, begins to subside. This year is a time for asserting your independence in all areas and being unapologetic for your desire to do things your way. Career may be a particular focus during this new year period, as Uranus squares the new Moon in this part of your chart on the 24th; unprogressive others will irk you now, and you may begin to feel quite strongly that you have outgrown your current working environment, which could be limiting your creativity. Uranus and Mercury also lock horns here from the 17th to 22nd, a period of likely disagreements or misunderstandings with superiors who can’t see the genius behind your ideas.
Jupiter made an important sign change in December, and as we head into January he is settling into your house of travel, learning and spiritual development. Here he will offer you many fabulous opportunities to enhance your knowledge and life experience, and see something more of what the universe has to offer. His conjunction with Mercury during the first week of the month is excellent for all kinds of higher education, in particular you may be attracted now to learning a new language or experiencing the culture of a different country or area of the world. A highly potent lunar eclipse on the 10th also encourages you to attend to your spiritual needs, as the world’s demands suddenly overload you and you feel a strong urge for some away time. Meditation and relaxation will help you here, and what you learn about yourself will have an important impact on the remainder of your 2020 and how you approach it.
Neptune and Venus link up in your house of friends after the 22nd and into early February, and as the two most romantic planets in the heavens, these starry-eyed lovelies will soon be showering your friendships with lots of love and grateful appreciation. It’s a wonderful period for a touch of bonding and reminiscing with those you care about, and also an excellent combination of energies for repentance and forgiveness. If you are playing the love game, there are plenty of opportunities here to find someone special with, or through, a friend, or at a social club or gathering. The only thing to watch for is a lack of realism, and a tendency to paper over the cracks of any hardships with romantic idealism. It might not be quite so easy under this influence to know when friends are not being honest or open with you, so be extra careful about who you trust.
