Taurus - April 2019
Hey Taurus! Important news for freedom-loving bulls, Uranus is back in your sign in April, and this time he is here to stay! It will be another eight years now before he leaves this area, and in this time significant changes to your life style, personality and outlook are likely. This is the beginning of your journey to a more independent way of life, and in this process, Uranus will eradicate anything in your world which is holding you back from living your truth and being your genuine self. At the same time, you will feel much bolder about expressing your uniqueness, creativity and artistic visions. You are more likely to go it alone now on creative projects, it’s not the best of times for collaborating with others. Uranus will be passing over the natal Sun of April-born Taureans for the remainder of the year, and his excitable energy could make you feel particularly restless and impulsive.
Jupiter turns retrograde on the 11th in your house of debts, and he will spend the days leading up to this date slowing to a frustratingly slow pace as he readies himself for his direction change. You will need to watch your spending carefully now; Jupiter’s good luck energy has permeated this part of your chart for some months, helping you to obtain credit and sending you unexpected windfalls and rebates, but you may notice that this luck has run out once he goes into reverse! It’s a time for being frugal and reflecting on wasteful or extravagant choices you may have made in the past. Jupiter’s long-winded connection with Mercury reignites between the 6th and 17th, and a dispute with a friend over money, borrowed or lent, which began in late February, will be back up for discussion now. This needs to be resolved if you are to move forward with your friendship intact.
The Sun passes through your house of secrets for the first three weeks in April, a place where his vitality is significantly muted. It’s not the best of times for high energy activities, it’s a reflective period in which you may need some down time to recharge. The new Moon of the 5th will also be a time of meditation and relaxation. It’s not really a time to people, you will probably want to be alone with your thoughts, so try to avoid busy social events and activities until after the 10th. The Sun also squares the Moon’s nodes from this area during the days of the 8th to 16th, creating difficulties around communicating your needs to others. You may just feel like no-one is listening, and this will cause some frustration. If you are studying, you are more likely to have a creative block or struggle to express your opinions at this time.
Finances will benefit from Mars’s assertive energy this month, and money-making ideas which fall into your path will be dynamic, aggressive and impulsive. If you haven’t got a plan for your financial future, rest assured you will have one by the end of the month, as Mars encourages you to tidy up your accounts and take charge of your cash flow. Mars and Neptune do form a rather hazy connection after the 19th, however, which could cause confusion around payments for social events such as parties and outings with friends. The full Moon of the 19th will shine a light on your work zone, pushing you to think carefully about whether you are getting enough recognition for all your hard work and effort. If you’re not happy, you know what to do! Have a wonderful April!
