Taurus

APR 20 - MAY 20

Progress and Passion

Taurus, the emphasis on your lifestyle sector at the start of the month is excellent for bringing more harmony and balance into your daily life. The sun and charming Venus in Libra suggest that you’ll be ready to make some changes to your routines that will positively transform your productivity and give you more time to unwind.

And with clever Mercury turning direct on October 2, plans or projects that have been on the back burner may now show signs of progress. It might take a while to get up to full speed, but over the next week or so you’ll get there.

In fact, there are three planets turning direct this month, with Mercury first, followed by Pluto on the eighth and prudent Saturn on the twenty-second. As if to counteract this, feisty Mars turns retrograde in Gemini at the end of the month.

This month’s full moon takes place on October 9 in the sign of Aries and your spiritual sector, and it forges harmonious links to Saturn. Watch out for vivid dreams or intuitive nudges that could have something to do with your job or career. If you follow through, you could take it to the next level.

Your relationships become more passionate when lovely Venus and the radiant sun move into Scorpio on the twenty-third. While these two planets can help smooth over any difficulties in a key bond, they also encourage hidden passions to emerge.

A powerful solar eclipse in Scorpio on October 25 brings the chance of a new beginning regarding a relationship. And whether this is a friendship, romance or business association, things could take an interesting turn from this point on.

On the twenty-seventh, sassy Jupiter backs into Pisces and your social sector and remains here until December 20. Its presence here could coincide with a reunion that might be a game changer.

Finally, as feisty Mars turns retrograde on October 30, it would pay to stay up to speed in your financial affairs.
