ALL SIGNS: Make the most of the energy that began with the New Moon in Taurus last week. Dare I say… there will be more to ‘let go’ as the moon builds and comes to fruition on the 14th? Luna tends to illuminate the darkest depths, uncover secrets and give breathing room for passions to stir as she blossoms in Scorpio.
TAURUS WEEKLY FORECAST
It was of great benefit to have a New Moon in your sign last week Taurus. There is a freshness about the air around you working at both lightening your mood and motivating you to sort the wheat from the chaff – that is, of anything that was leftover from the mess in April. In truth many Taurus’ were among the bystanders of the astrological storm. However, those with planets or positions in the Cardinal signs would have gotten their fair share of the planetary gusts.
In either case, Mercury’s tour through Gemini at the onset of the week brings blessings on several fronts. If you have been thinking of ways to earn extra income more than few great ideas will be churned out. Aside from finances, your sense of self worth begins climbing new heights. In other words it is very clear to others that you will not play second fiddle and are more than prepared to stand up and be counted. In effect you could hear yourself saying the heart wants what the heart wants (and will not be denied) as a catch all phrase to justify your stance. Luxurious creature comforts are destined to be in the hands of those with your unique blend of beauty, brains and brawn! If you are not feeling quite that confident at the moment, between now and the end of the month you will notice just how much you are capable of and may even discover a few new talents or at least start putting the ones you know of to better use. At that point the proof will be in pudding.
Towards the end of the week relationships (significant other or work related) are bound to face an impasse as your ruler Venus opposes warrior Mars on the 11th. The trouble here is that while Venus is in Aries (your solar house of the unconscious) it is particularly difficult for you to hone in on exactly what you want — hence the desire to ground yourself with material comforts. Actions speak louder than words so if you take heed of the logical consequences of your actions you will be surprised to find that you are working against yourself in some way. Illusionary Neptune squares Mercury on this same day and smothers your thinking in a confusing fog making matters worse. May 11th is clearly not a good day to be making major decisions.
If on the other hand you can reach common ground with the person in question (probably by seeing through or having an awareness of personal projections) the clash between Mars and Venus can be a great learning experience… and with the addition of Neptune’s wonky energies, it can produce some magnificent loving/compassionate vibes. Do try and make a connection Taurus.
Lastly, on May 12th Mercury trines Mars (RX) creating a dynamic energy that makes you feel especially chatty and playful. Not everyone gets sarcasm but the sparkle in your eyes and the upturn of your lips will have everyone playing along nicely. Needless to say it is also a milder way of releasing any pent up frustration if you monitor yourself appropriately.
