Taurus Horoscope for 2018

Major Trends

Sometimes the best way out of a rut is not climbing out of it, but simply blasting the rut away. When the blast is over, you’ll find your path open. This is what is starting (and it is only the beginning) to happen this year, as Uranus enters your sign on May 16. This is a momentous transit that you will feel for the next seven years. Those of you born early in the sign of Taurus (April 20 to April 22) are going to feel this the most this year. But all of you will feel it in coming years.

The other major headline is the love life. The love life was good last year, but gets even better in the year ahead. Jupiter is firmly positioned in your 7th house of love almost all year – until November. For singles this brings romance and serious types of relationship. More on this later.

Jupiter will move into your 8th house on November 8. This will bring prosperity to the current love or spouse. He or she enters a peak prosperity period that will last well into 2019. It will also be a good time to pay off debt or attract outside investors. More on this later on.

Saturn moved into your 9th house late last year and will remain there for the next two years. This is basically a happy transit as Saturn makes harmonious aspects to you. You will be more disciplined and organized. For college students this is a difficult transit, however; it shows a need for more work, more effort, more discipline in the studies. You can’t coast this year. It is also challenging for those of you involved in legal issues. You can expect many delays and setbacks.

Pluto has been in your 9th house for many years now, and will be there for many more. This indicates that a cosmic detox is going on in your religious and philosophical life. This is a long-term process. Old beliefs – those that don’t belong in the mind – get flushed out so that a better, more realistic belief system can evolve.

Neptune has been in your 11th house for many years and, likewise, will be there for many more years to come. Neptune, like Pluto, is a very slowmoving planet. This transit is spiritualizing your friendships. You’re attracting more spiritual friends, and perhaps are more involved in spiritual types of organizations too.

Your most important interests this year will be the body and image (from May 16 to November 6); love and romance (until November 8); sex, occult studies and personal reinvention (after November 8); religion, philosophy, higher education and foreign travel; friendships, groups and group activities; and spirituality (from January 1 to May 16 and from November 6 onwards).

Your paths of greatest fulfilment this year will be home and family (until November 17); love, romance and social activities (until November 8); sex, occult studies and personal transformation (from November 8 onwards); and communication and intellectual interests (after November 17).

Taurus Horoscope 2018: Health

(Please note that this is an astrological perspective on health and not a medical one. In days of yore there was no difference, both these perspectives were identical. But now there could be quite a difference. For a medical perspective, please consult your doctor or health practitioner.)

Health and energy look excellent in the year ahead. There is only one longterm planet, Jupiter, in stressful alignment with you. All the others are mostly in harmonious aspect. So if you have any pre-existing conditions or health concerns you should hear good news about them this year. They are likely to be much milder, or even resolve themselves now.

Your empty 6th house of health is also a good sign: you don’t need to focus on health as it is not a big issue. Why do drastic things when there’s nothing wrong? You sort of take good health for granted this year. On November 8, even Jupiter will move away from his stressful aspect. So overall health will become even better.

Sure, there will be periods in the year when your health and energy are not as good as usual, but these are temporary things caused by the planetary transits. They are not trends for the year. When they pass, your normal good health and energy return.

The neck and throat. These are always important for Taurus and regular neck massage is always a good thing. Tension tends to collect there and needs to be released. Craniosacral therapy is said to be good for the neck.

The kidneys and hips. These too are always important for Taurus. Hips (and the buttocks) should be regularly massaged. This will not only strengthen these areas but improve your overall posture. A herbal kidney cleanse might be a good idea if you feel under the weather.

Venus, your health planet, is a fast-moving planet and will move through all the signs and houses of your Horoscope in any given year. Thus there are many short-term health trends that depend on where Venus is and the aspects she receives. Some months you might respond better to one therapy and some months to another. These short-term trends are best dealt with in the monthly reports below.

Uranus, as we have mentioned, will move into your sign on May 16. From a health perspective it signals ‘experimentation’ with the body. There will be tendency to ‘test the limits’ of the body. This is a wonderful thing in that much of our physical limitations are self-imposed or have been inherited, and it is good to break these limits. On the other hand, this testing should be done in a mindful and conscious way, not recklessly. Thus disciplines like yoga, tai chi or other martial arts might be good. These are safe ways to test the body’s limits.

This year Uranus is only making a foray into your sign. But next year – and for the next seven or so years – you will experience the full-blown transit and these tendencies will be a lot stronger.

Your health planet will move backwards this year. This is a relatively rare phenomenon that happens once every two years. So, from October 5 to November 16 avoid making major changes to the diet or health regime.

Taurus Horoscope 2018: Home and Family

Your 4th house is not a house of power this year, Taurus. So the cosmos is not pushing you to make dramatic changes in your home life one way or another.

It tends to the status quo and shows a sense of satisfaction with the way things are. You have more freedom in home and family affairs, but lack the interest to alter things. In spite of this, there will be changes and dramas in the family circle this year. Most likely you won’t be initiating these things, but reacting to events that happen. This year we have three Solar Eclipses – usually there are only two. Since the Sun is your family planet the Horoscope is forecasting more than usual turbulence. Two eclipses – one Solar and one Lunar – will actually occur in your 4th house of home and family, reinforcing the sense of ‘shakeup’ and ‘drama’ that we see.

We will cover the eclipses in more detail in the monthly reports. In general it is wise to be more patient with family members (and with parents or parent figures) as they are apt to be more temperamental. The emotional life (and the dream life) will tend to be more volatile as well.

A parent or parent figure is likely to move, renovate the existing home, or buy an additional home. It seems happy and fortunate. Another parent or parent figure seems very devoted to you and seems very focused on you. This is a double-edged sword: there is more support, but perhaps more control as well.

Siblings or sibling figures in your life could have moved in 2015 or 2016.

Things are more stable for them this year. Children and children figures are likely to move after November 8, and perhaps next year too. This looks happy.

Grandchildren of appropriate age have perhaps had multiple moves in recent years. This trend continues this year. Their wanderlust seems almost over with, however, and they will be more ready to settle down next year. Though you are likely to need to make repairs to the home this year, major renovations aren’t likely. (You have freedom to do them, but no pressing necessity.) However, if you’re redecorating or updating the home in cosmetic kinds of way – or buying art objects for the home – June 13 to August 23 seems a good time.

One of the parents or parent figures in your life needs to watch his or her health more. A daily disciplined health regime is in order. He or she should

pay more attention to the spine, knees, teeth, bones, colon, bladder and sexual organs. Surgery could be recommended to this person too.

Siblings or sibling figures have wonderful job opportunities this year. If there have been health problems there is good news on that front.

Taurus Horoscope 2018: Finance and Career

Money and financial well-being are always important for Taurus, but this year less so than usual. I read this as a good thing. Finances are relatively stable – relatively satisfying – and you have no pressing need for major change. The money house is not a house of power this year. It is basically empty. Only short-term planets will briefly pass through there, so finances will be more or less like last year.

Your financial planet, Mercury, is, next to the Moon, the fastest and most erratic of the planets. Sometimes he moves very fast (passing through three signs and houses in a given month), sometimes he’s slow and sometimes he goes backwards. The fact that he’s your financial planet shows that though you tend to be fixed in your ways, when it comes to finance, you’re very flexible.

You can change your opinions and attitudes at the drop of a hat.

This erratic nature of Mercury indicates that there are many short-term financial trends, all depending on where he is at any given time, how fast he’s moving and the aspects he receives. These trends are best dealt with in the monthly reports.

We should mention that Mercury will go into retrograde motion three times this year (this is usual, although in the past two years he went retrograde four times each year). These are times to put the financial life (your goals and planning) under review. These are great periods for research and study, but not so good for making important purchases or financial moves. Mercury is retrograde from March 23 to April 15, July 26 to August 19 and November 17 to December 6.

The real action this year is in the career. Here we see many – and positive – changes. You tend to prefer status and prestige over mere money, Taurus. You sort of feel that ‘if I’m successful, if I have status, money will follow eventually’.

There are two eclipse in your 10th career house this year – a Solar Eclipse on February 15 and a Lunar Eclipse on July 27. These indicate shakeups in your company or industry. Your career strategy and thinking will change. A lot of obstacles (or what you thought were obstacles) will be removed. But even more important than that is your career planet Uranus’s entry into your sign on May 16. This signals you have the favour and support of the people with power in your life, the bosses and authority figures. This move is favourable for the career. It shows that career opportunities will start seeking you out rather than vice versa. The offers will come, you just have to go about your daily business.

With Uranus in your 1st house people will see you as successful. This will be your image and persona. You will dress and look the part. Personal appearance and overall demeanour will be a big factor in your career success.

Uranus in Aries for the past seven years has made the career highly unstable.

There was always a feeling of insecurity. Uranus in Taurus is more stable – more solid – less volatile.

Taurus Horoscope 2018: Love and Social Life

As we mentioned earlier, the year ahead is a banner love and social year. For some it will be the best ever, for others it will be up there among the best. Much depends on your age. Jupiter will spend the year in your 7th house of love. The stresses to your love planet, Pluto, are mostly over with. If you are single, this is a year for finding that special someone. Often this transit shows a literal marriage, but not always. Sometimes it shows a relationship that is ‘like a marriage’.

All of you will be socializing more, making new and significant kinds of friendships. Often business partnerships happen under this transit too.

In spite of all this good, there are some complications (and this is especially so for those of you born early in the sign – from April 20 to April 23). Uranus in your sign is not the best aspect for serious relationships. There is a tendency to want absolute personal freedom and it is difficult having to compromise that. You want to do what you want to do when you want to do it. A committed relationship, by definition, implies a limitation of personal freedom. One needs to be able to sacrifice the latter in order to explore other kinds of freedom – the freedom of intimacy with another, the freedom to explore family life, etc. Too much self will might not stop romance, but it might stop committed relationships. Those of you involved romantically with a Taurus need to give them as much space – as much freedom – as possible, so long as it isn’t destructive.

So romance is very likely this year – the opportunities are certainly there – but will it lead to marriage or commitment? That is the million dollar question.

Pluto, the generic planet of sex, is your love planet. Jupiter, the actual planet of sex, is in your house of love. This gives many messages. Sexual magnetism seems the most important thing for you (and for the people you’re involved with). It seems the ‘be all and end all’. While there is no question of its importance, we can’t confuse that with real love, nor can one build a solid relationship only on that. More is needed.

Jupiter in your 7th house indicates an attraction to foreigners and to highly educated or religious kinds of people. You’re attracted to mentor types. (Many of the people you meet seem eager to be mentor figures.) It shows an attraction to wealth too. In fact the people you’re meeting seem well off; they seem like ‘money people’.

There are romantic opportunities at your place of worship, at religious or educational functions or in foreign lands. Professors and the clergy in your life – as well as the people in your place of worship – like playing Cupid.

Taurus Horoscope 2018: Self-Improvement

Uranus’s brief venture into your 1st house this year is only a foretaste of things to come; an announcement. Much change is happening in your life, much of it sudden and unexpected. There is a cosmic lesson here. An important one.

Taureans are conservative people. They like routine. They like predictability.

And they don’t do well with too much change. But now the cosmos is pushing change on you – and make no mistake, it is for your good. So the lesson here is to make change your friend. To embrace it. To roll and adapt with it. There is something very exciting about all this. Anything can happen at any time.

Routines – comfortable though they may be – are not likely to last. It is important now to be flexible and ready to let things go. If you learn this, things will go easier for you down the road.

Uranus is your career planet. The worldly aspects of your career have been discussed above, but the 10th house has a deeper meaning than just the worldly career. Spiritually it represents your soul purpose, your spiritual mission for this life. This is going to become ever more important in the coming years.

The message of the Horoscope is that your body and image is basically your mission. You’re being called to create and personify the ‘Divine Body’ – the body as it was created to be – the Divine Idea of your body. This is perfection when we understand it correctly. But it is not just about the body, it’s also about your outer personality. You are being called to perfect yourself, to make you as you are intended to be.

Uranus is going to initiate a long-term trend in ‘self-redefinition’. You will be constantly redefining yourself, changing your image and your look – upgrading it the way you upgrade your computer and software. Every time you think you have it ‘perfect’ – a new idea comes to you and you change. You’re not going to be the ‘stodgy boring Taurus’ any longer, but someone exciting, electrifying and fun to be around. You will have a magnetic, charismatic kind of presence.

For years now, Pluto has been detoxifying your belief systems – your philosophy of life. Everyone has a philosophy of life – consciously or unconsciously. This area of life is much more important (though less popular) than psychology. Your personal philosophy will shape your psychology. So, much change has happened in your belief systems over the years. Now Saturn’s presence in your 9th house is going to test your new beliefs. They get a reality check. The changes you have made, are they real? Are they true? Can they hold up under the events of life? In the next two years, you will find out. Some will hold up, some will need to be changed, modified or thrown out completely.

Saturn in your 9th house favours what is called ‘the old time religion’.

Traditional religion. It has been fashionable to toss this out the window, to mock it in certain quarters. But the reason these religions have lasted so long is that underneath the human baggage lie deep spiritual truths. These should be understood and absorbed now. Once you have the essence you can throw away the outer trappings. But first one needs the essence.

Best Days for Career: 4, 13, 14, 17, 18, 19, 23, 24, 31

You’re in a very interesting situation these days. You begin your year with 90 per cent (and for half the month all) of the planets above the horizon. The upper half of your chart – the ‘day side’ – is chock-full of planets, while the lower half is empty. Only the Moon will move through the ‘night side’ of your chart this month, from the 3rd to the 9th and from the 25th to the 31st. This means that you are very much a ‘day’ person in the year ahead. A career person. A person focused on outer achievement. Home, family and emotional issues are taking a back seat. Also it means that the lower half of the Horoscope – even at its strongest point – will never dominate. You’re in a strong career year – and the month ahead is a strong career month. If people accuse you of being ‘career driven’ – just humbly nod your head. It’s in the stars.

A Lunar Eclipse on the 31st will force you – if only briefly – to pay more attention to the home and family. It occurs in your 4th house of home and family and brings dramas in the lives of family members – especially a parent or parent figure. Often repairs are needed in the home and you won’t be able to avoid this. This is a powerful eclipse so reduce your schedule over that period.

This eclipse will test cars and communication equipment, and in many cases they will need repair or replacement. Siblings and/or sibling figures in your life will have life-changing dramas. Since Venus is impacted by this eclipse (although not exactly, it’s more like a glancing blow) the health regime will change in the coming months. Sometimes there is a health scare – but your health looks good and it probably won’t be anything more than that. There can be upheavals in your neighbourhood and with neighbours too. If you employ others there is instability with employees.

It is interesting that this eclipse occurs right in the midst of a yearly career peak – one of your most successful (and demanding) times. It’s a distraction to the career. Happily, the family (for the most part) is supportive of your career goals. They see it as a ‘family project’ and not just personal to you.

The love life is going well this month. Between the 8th and the 10th Venus travels with your love planet, Pluto. For singles this indicates a significant romantic meeting or opportunity. Jupiter is in your 7th house as well – serious love is in the air.

Many of the trends discussed last month are still in effect now. You’re still very much in a yearly career peak and seem very successful. Last month – on the 18th – Venus, the ruler of your Horoscope, crossed the Mid-heaven and entered your 10th house of career. This shows personal success and elevation.

People look up to you. You’re in charge (or aspire to be) and are at the top of your game. Venus will remain in your 10th house until the 11th. But another eclipse will distract you – and this one also looks to be powerful. It is a Solar Eclipse on the 15th, which occurs in your career house.

You need to be taking it more easy until the 18th anyway, but especially during the eclipse period. This Solar Eclipse affects the family, and especially the parents (both sets of parents or parent figures). There are dramas in their lives. The home might need more attention as hidden flaws there can be revealed. There are shakeups in your company and industry: perhaps the government changes the law and the rules of the game are changed. Bosses and authority figures have personal dramas. All these things are ultimately going to benefit your career, as obstructions to your progress are being blown away.

But while it is happening there is usually a feeling of insecurity. A career course correction is very much in order now.

This eclipse is powerful in other ways too. Mercury, your financial planet, is affected. There is some financial disturbance, something that forces a course correction in your financial strategy and thinking. A love affair can be tested.

Children and children figures need to redefine themselves. Jupiter, the ruler of your 8th house of regeneration, is also affected. Thus there can be near-death kinds of experiences, problems with the tax authorities or legal issues. Often people have dreams of death under these kinds of eclipses. But this is just to help you come to terms with it.

Health and energy will improve from the 18th onwards. Until then make sure to get enough rest. Enhance the health in the ways mentioned in the yearly report. Until the 11th pay attention to the ankles and calves. Massage them regularly. After the 11th give more attention to the feet – foot massage becomes very beneficial. Venus in Pisces, from the 11th onwards, favours spiritual kinds of therapies. If you feel under the weather, see a spiritual healer.

Career is still very important, and this is how it will be all year. But the month ahead is more spiritual. There are many planets in the spiritual sign of Pisces this month: at least 40 per cent (and sometimes 50 per cent) of the planets are either there or moving through there. This shows involvement with spiritualtype groups and befriending spiritual people. The spiritual connection seems important in friendships these days. (Let’s not forget that Neptune, the generic spiritual ruler, has been in your 11th house for many years now.)

Spirituality is further emphasized after the 20th as your 12th house becomes ultra-powerful. Your challenge this month will be to merge your spiritual values with the values of the world. This is not so easy to do. Your career approach will become more spiritual and your spiritual approach more worldly and practical.

Health and energy are superb this month. There is only one long-term planet in stressful alignment with you. All the short-term planets (except for the Moon on occasion) are either in harmony with you or leaving you alone. So long as you don’t fritter away all this extra energy it should bring you success and prosperity. You can enhance your health further by giving more attention to the feet until the 6th, and to the head, face and scalp after that date. Scalp massage will not only strengthen the brain and head, but the entire body as well.

Mercury, your financial planet, spends most of the month in your spiritual 12th house – from the 6th onwards. This shows the importance of intuition, and a need – and an ability – to access the supernatural sources of supply. This is a time for miracle money, rather than natural money. Mercury will go into retrograde motion on the 23rd, so wrap up important purchases or investments before then. After the 23rd it’s time to put your finances under review.

Love is good this year, as we’ve said, but after the 20th it does become more challenging. You have to work harder at your current relationship. There are some short-term personal disagreements with the beloved. Next month harmony is restored.

The planetary power is approaching its maximum Eastern position this month. Next month it will be even stronger. Now is the time to make the changes that need to be made. You have plenty of cosmic support. (If we have cosmic support we’re not worried about what humans think.) Personal independence is unusually strong.

A happy and successful month Taurus, enjoy! Health and energy are terrific.

And with more energy there is more happiness. (A good definition of depression, astrologically speaking, is ‘lack of energy’.) With more energy your horizons expand. Things that were considered impossible – things you may have dismissed from your mind – are now eminently possible.

The planetary power is East – maximum East. This, as our regular readers know, is the sector of self. The planetary power is on your side, supporting you and your personal happiness. As we mentioned last month, this is the time to make any changes that need to be made in your life. Irksome conditions are easily alterable now, there’s no need to suffer or compromise. Personal initiative matters. Personal skills matter. We are never disrespectful of others, but now you’re not that dependent on them. It’s time to have things your way – to have life on your terms. If you create wisely, the year ahead will be more comfortable. If you make mistakes you’ll learn about them over the next six months, and when your next period of independence comes, you’ll be able to make appropriate changes.

Spirituality is still important this month, until the 20th. Spiritual breakthroughs that happen will change both the financial and career situation for the better. Even the family situation will improve because of this. If parents or parent figures haven’t been getting along, there is more togetherness from the 17th to the 19th. There is happy career success in that period too.

Venus spends most of the month in your sign, until the 24th. This brings beauty and glamour to the image. It is one of the best times to buy clothing or personal accessories as your taste will be excellent. Happy job opportunities are coming too: there is no need for any Taurus to be unemployed now.

The Sun moves into your sign on the 20th. This, too, improves the personal appearance. You have ‘star quality’ now. Charisma. A twinkle in your eye, a spring in your step. It is no surprise that the love life is vastly improved. The only complication is the retrograde of your love planet Pluto on the 22nd, which will go on for many months. This doesn’t stop love, but it does slow things down a bit. And it should be slowed down – let love develop as it will.

Another happy and successful month, with just a few challenges to keep things interesting. (Too much happiness can get boring after a while.)

Last month, on the 20th, as the Sun entered your 1st house, you began one of your yearly personal pleasure peaks. This is a great time to pamper the body and to enjoy all the pleasures of the five senses. It’s also good for getting your body and image in right shape. The cosmos supports these activities.

Mercury, now moving forward, crosses your Ascendant and enters your 1st house on the 13th, bringing financial windfalls to you. You start to dress more expensively and present an image of wealth. Financial opportunities seek you out. You have the financial favour of the money people in your life.

The big news – and we mentioned this in the yearly report – is Uranus’s move into your sign on the 16th. Taureans have a tendency to get stuck in their ways. But those days are over (especially for those of you born early in the sign). Now change can happen at any time, in any place – sudden and dramatic change. During this period it seems to involve the career. Happy career opportunities come that can upend your whole status quo.

On the 21st the Sun enters your money house and you begin a yearly financial peak. Venus is in the money house until the 19th – also good for finances – and your money planet Mercury will enter on the 30th. So the month ahead is prosperous – Taurus heaven!

Mars crosses the Mid-heaven on the 16th and enters your 10th house of career. This indicates a lot of frenetic career activity. Perhaps there are some unpleasant revelations about your company or industry and much work has to be done. Perhaps you have to fend off competitors. It will keep you on your toes.

Money comes through your personal effort, your job, family and family connections and from good sales and marketing. A speedy Mercury (he moves through three signs and houses this month) shows financial confidence and fast, forward progress.

Family support is very good now. They seem devoted to you. Love is happy but Pluto is still retrograde, so no need to rush into anything. (Jupiter in your 7th house of love is also retrograde, just to reinforce what we’re saying here.)

Planetary retrograde activity increases this month. By the 26th half the planets will be moving backwards – almost the maximum number for 2018. The pace of life slows down considerably. There are many delays and glitches in the world. On a psychological level it is useful to understand what’s going on.

Also, as an added bonus, we learn patience.

You’re still very much into one of your yearly financial peaks. Things might be slower in the world, but your earnings are coming in as they should. By the 21st your short-term financial goals are more or less achieved and you can focus on other things – such as intellectual development. This is a great period to take courses in subjects that interest you. If you have expertise in a given field it’s also a good time to teach others, to communicate what you know.

Sales and marketing are always important on a financial level, but especially until the 29th.

Venus makes beautiful aspects to Neptune on the 1st and 2nd. This brings someone spiritual into your life. Your intuition is keen and the dream life is very active. From the 4th to the 6th, as Venus opposes Pluto, there are short-term conflicts with the beloved. These will pass. You’re just seeing things from opposite perspectives.

Health and energy are basically good this month. Be careful of overworking though – Mars is still in your 10th house and career is frenetic. You can enhance the health through right diet and emotional tranquillity until the 14th.

After that date, give more attention to the heart. Heat-oriented therapies (and plain old sunshine) are healing from the 14th onwards.

Finances, as we mentioned, are basically good this month, but on the 15th and 16th there is some challenge or delay. On the 22nd or 23rd there can be a financial disagreement with the beloved.

Venus, the ruler of your Horoscope, is ‘out of bounds’ from the 1st to the 7th. So you’re outside your normal sphere then. This might be because of your job.

Uranus is still in your 1st house this month and very near your Ascendant.

So change and excitement is happening for many of you. Many of you are changing your image – experimenting with it. You keep upgrading your image the way some people update their software. It is an ongoing, continuous process.

Persistence – some might call it stubbornness – is one of the important virtues of Taureans. You have this innate ability to create success when others have long since given up. But this virtue is sometimes a vice. Sometimes you get too stuck in your ways and need a course correction. Uranus in your 1st house, and two very strong eclipses, are taking you out of your rut this month. Many of you saw the beginnings of this – the harbinger – last month.

Both eclipses – the Solar Eclipse of the 13th and the Lunar Eclipse of the 27th – affect you strongly, so take it nice and easy then. The Solar Eclipse not only impacts on your home and family planet, the Sun, but also occurs in the sign of Cancer, which generically rules family. So more family dramas are happening. Memories can arise about explosive past events. A parent or parent figure has to make a life-changing decision. Hidden flaws in the home can come to light so that you can deal with them. The family situation is not as it seemed to be, and the eclipse reveals this. The Solar Eclipse occurs in your 3rd house and so siblings and sibling figures in your life are affected here. They are experiencing personal and financial dramas. Cars and communication equipment will get tested, and will often need repair or replacement. Students below college level can change schools, or otherwise change their educational plans. There are disruptions in their school. Pluto, your love planet, is impacted too, so a current relationship gets tested. Repressed grievances tend to come up and need to be dealt with. Be more patient with the beloved at this time.

The Lunar Eclipse of the 27th also impacts on the home and family, as the Moon, the eclipsed planet, is the generic ruler of this area of the Horoscope.

Siblings and sibling figures are once again affected, forcing important personal changes. Cars and communication equipment get tested once again.

This eclipse occurs in your 10th house of career, so there are course corrections in your career. The rules of the game are changing. This eclipse impacts on the other parent figure in your life. Often there are dramas with bosses, elders and people involved in your career. This eclipse affects Mars, the ruler of your spiritual 12th house. Thus there are shakeups in a charitable or spiritual organization that you’re involved with. There are dramas in the lives of guru figures. The dream life is likely to be hyperactive, but not very reliable. Don’t put too much stock in your dreams for the moment.

The turbulence of the past month is not yet over with. We have another Solar Eclipse – the third one of the year – on the 11th. This is more or less a replay of last month’s eclipses (things never repeat in the same exact way, but the themes of the eclipses are similar). It occurs in your 4th house of home and family and the eclipsed planet, the Sun, is the ruler of your 4th house. So there are yet more family dramas, and perhaps more work needed on the physical home. (The hidden flaws there were more numerous than you thought.)

You should reduce your schedule this month, until the 22nd anyway – it’s not your best health month – and especially around the eclipse period.

It is midnight in your year (allegorically speaking) and yet you seem wide awake. The outer world calls to you. You would like to sleep, but you need to focus on the activities of the day. It’s a curious situation, and one that perhaps leaves you feeling sleep deprived.

Enhance the health by making sure you get enough rest. But also give more attention to the diet and the small intestine until the 7th, and to the kidneys and hips afterwards. Regular hip massage will not only strengthen the kidneys, but the lower back as well. Your health planet, Venus, spends most of the month in Libra – her own sign – which is a good health omen. She is strong in that sign.

It also indicates a need for good social health, and good marital health. If there are problems there, resolve them as quickly as you can.

Your financial planet, Mercury, is retrograde until the 19th, so avoid major purchases and investments during this time. After the 19th there will be more clarity and it is safer to act. Mercury spends the month in your 4th house. So (no surprise), you’re spending more on the home and family. Perhaps you’re earning from there as well. Some of you will be earning money at home.

Family and family connections are playing a huge role in the financial life this month.

Mars, your spiritual planet, is ‘out of bounds’ all month (an aspect that began last month). So in your spiritual life you’re outside your normal sphere. This is the kind of aspect of someone who travels to some distant land on a spiritual pilgrimage. But it can also indicate exploring new and different types of spirituality from where you are.

Now that the excitement of the eclipses is over you can enjoy your life more.

Your 5th house of creativity and fun is still very strong until the 22nd, so you’re in another one of your personal pleasure peaks for the year. A good time to schedule more leisure and fun activities into your life.

Health and energy are much improved over last month. If there have been health problems you should hear good news about them this month. Continue to pay particular attention to the kidneys and hips until the 9th. After the 9th give more focus to the colon, bladder and sexual organs. Detox regimes are powerful after this date, and a herbal colon cleanse might be a good idea if you feel under the weather.

Finances are also good this month. Mercury is moving fast and financial progress happens quickly. You cover a lot of territory. The period between the 6th and the 22nd is particularly good. Mercury will be in your 5th house, showing that money is earned in happy ways. The act of making money is enjoyable (and we can’t always say that). There is luck in speculations. Most

importantly you’re enjoying the wealth that you have. You’re spending your money on fun activities. Children and children figures in your life seem important financially. Sometimes, especially if they are young, they motivate you to earn more. Sometimes they have ideas or insights that are profitable. If the children are older, they can be financially supportive in a more tangible way.

Your 6th house of health and work becomes strong from the 22nd onwards.

This signals a good work ethic – something you need right now with Mars moving back into your 10th house of career. The demands of career are very strong, but you seem up to it. Those of you looking for work should have success during this period (and next month too).

On July 22 the planetary power started to shift from the East to the West, from the sector of the self to the sector of others. Now, it is approaching its maximum Western position. This means that the planetary power is more focused on others, flowing towards others, away from yourself. And, this is how you should be. Venus, the ruler of your Horoscope, moves into your 7th house on the 9th and stays there for the rest of the month ahead. You’re taking a vacation from yourself (a much-needed one), and you’re more concerned for others now. You put the interests of others ahead of your own. You feel good when you can do things for others. This tends to popularity, so love is going well too.

Love is the main headline in the coming month, but it is still a bit complicated.

On the one hand, Pluto, your love planet, is finally moving forward again after many months of retrograde motion (this happens on the 20th). Jupiter in your 7th house is also moving forward, and on the 23rd the Sun will enter your 7th house, initiating a yearly love and social peak. So love is in the air for singles these days. There is only one problem. Venus, the planet of love and the ruler of your Horoscope, starts to go backwards on the 5th. So, love is happening, but you seem to be backing away from it. Perhaps you’re taking a wait-and-see attitude. Perhaps you’re being more cautious. But the love opportunities are there, and the social judgement is getting better.

Health is good this month and you’re on the case – your 6th house of health is still very strong until the 23rd. After then, however, your health will need more attention being paid. We don’t see any major disasters, just energy not up to its usual standards. So make sure, as always, to get enough rest. Enhance the health in the ways mentioned in the yearly report, and in the ways mentioned last month. Detox regimes are excellent. A herbal colon cleanse might be a good idea. Safe sex and sexual moderation are important.

The career has been important all year, but now, from the 23rd onwards, it becomes even more of a focus. After the 23rd 90 per cent of the planets will be above the horizon. Mars is still in your career house, however, and the career is frenetic. You need to be more aggressive here.

Finances looks good this month, but stronger after the 10th than before. The month will wind up being prosperous. Until the 10th money comes through your work – the old-fashioned way. On the 10th your money planet Mercury moves into Scorpio, your 7th house, and travels with the Sun. This signals good support from family and friends. Mercury will travel with Jupiter from the 28th to the 30th – indicating a nice payday. It also shows good financial

cooperation with the spouse, partner or current love. Debts are easily paid.

This is a good period to contact outside investors if you have good ideas for projects. A business partnership or joint venture could happen – the opportunity will come. Social connections are important all month.

The spouse, partner or current love has had a good financial year, but this month it gets even better. On the 8th Jupiter will move into their money house, a classic signal of prosperity, and on the 22nd the Sun also moves into this house and they enter a yearly financial peak. You seem personally very involved with this.

Jupiter ’s move into your 8th house of regeneration shows the importance of tax efficiency. Good tax planning will play an important role in your bottom line. It is also excellent for paying debts, refinancing debt on more favourable terms, or for taking out loans – all depending on your need. Often this transit indicates inheritance, but hopefully no one has to die. You can profit from estates or be appointed to some administrative position in an estate.

You’re still very much in the midst of a yearly love and social peak until the 22nd. However, Venus is still retrograde until the 16th, so while the love opportunities are still there you seem hesitant. This will start to change after the 16th. The New Moon of the 7th is going to clarify love issues as the month progresses. All the information you need will come to you effortlessly as the month progresses. You’ll have all the information you need to make a correct decision.

Mercury, your financial planet, spends the month in Sagittarius, your 8th house. This shows involvement with the income of the spouse, partner or current love. It also shows the need for good tax and insurance planning. For those of you of appropriate age it is a good aspect for estate planning. Mercury is ‘out of bounds’ from the 4th to the 20th, showing that you’re moving outside your normal sphere in pursuit of earnings. Sometimes it shows that there is a need to do this – that you can’t attain your goals unless you think ‘outside the box’. Mercury will go retrograde on the 17th, so try to wrap up important purchases and investment decisions before then. The Sun travels with Jupiter from the 24th to the 28th. This indicates a nice payday for you and for a parent or parent figure. He or she is likely to be more generous with you over that period.

Career is still important but it is a bit less frantic this month. Mars will leave your 10th house on the 16th.

Uranus’s foray into your sign finishes on the 6th. He moves back into Aries for the next couple of months. But he did his job, he delivered his message; major changes will be happening from next year onwards.

Though you’re not in a yearly love and social peak, the love life seems active and positive this month. Venus is now moving forward and will spend almost all month in your 7th house of love. Pluto, your love planet, is going forward too. So the social confidence and judgement is good. Venus in your 7th house signals much social popularity. You’re there for your friends and the beloved.

You put their interests ahead of your own. You’re very devoted to your existing relationship. This tends to popularity. Good social skills (and you have them now) are not only important in love but in finance as well. Mercury is also in your 7th house until the 13th.

Mercury resumes forward motion on the 6th, so your naturally sound financial judgement returns. This is a positive for finance. On the 13th Mercury moves into your 8th house again. This, as we have mentioned, is good for tax and estate planning (for those of you of appropriate age), for paying down or making debt (according to your need), and for focusing on the financial well-being of others. It is good for attracting outside money to your projects – in the form of either investors or credit.

Taureans tend to be hoarders. They take in, take in, take in. This a good month to detox your possessions – to get rid of the things that you don’t need or use. Use should be the criterion. The things you use, keep. What you don’t use, either sell or give to charity. Too many things clog up the internal system.

You need to make room for the new and better things that want to come in.

On the 21st the Sun enters your 9th house and starts to travel with the ruler of that house. This signals foreign travel, foreign lands call to you. Spending the holidays with the family in some foreign spot seems a good idea. This is also a good aspect for college students. They seem more disciplined and more focused on their studies.

Mars, your spiritual planet, travels with Neptune from the 5th to the 7th. Pay attention to your dreams during this period as they seem significant. You could feel the effects of this aspect even before the 5th. It will bring spiritual breakthroughs. More spiritually minded friends will come into the picture.
