The Sun enters the sign of Taurus on April 20th at 2:56 a.m., Mountain Time. Taurus is an earth sign and is associated with Venus. Taurus is the banker of the Zodiac and is quite fortunate with money and resources. Venus, the planet of beauty and luxury, helps to bring abundance to this calm sign. Somehow this clever sign is surrounded by luxury at a bargain price. The perfect Taurus always knows how to get the best quality for the best price. My Taurus sister goes to the most expensive shops and finds all the sales. Yes, she looks like a chic Taurus, all the time.
Even though Taurus is an earth sign and is one of the most stable of all the signs of the Zodiac, this secure sign now has Uranus, the Rebel, prancing through Taurus. Or maybe running wildly might be a better speed for this unpredictable planet of change. Since Uranus is one of the slow planets and has an orbit of 84 years, this will take a while. Radical Uranus will be in resistant-to-change Taurus all the way until 2026. So this is just the beginning of an entirely new phase. Change whatever is broken or needs to go away. Update. Reboot. Move. Start fresh. Oh yes, this is for us all and not just for the sign of Taurus.
This month has no inner retrogrades or Eclipses, so it’s a bit easier of a month. The group of planets in Capricorn will be dominating the sky for about another year. But in addition, there is an interesting pairing of faster planets this month. Venus and Mercury are close together and are both in outspoken Aries. This is a great time to find your voice and use it . . . maybe loudly. Don’t hold your ideas inside. Be authentic and transparent. Tell the world who you really are. Favored for artists, illustrators and authors. Mars is also in the smartie sign of Gemini now to help you be even more brilliant.
About the visible planets, the early risers are the lucky ones now. You can see Jupiter, Saturn and Venus every morning this month is the south east predawn sky. Mercury will also be there some of the month, although he’s always harder to spot, even with a clear horizon. Mars is the lone planet in the evening sky. But if you notice, he’s getting much closer to the western horizon and guess what . . . will soon be lost to the glow of the Sun. I love the eternal dance of the heavens.
See you next in Gemini!
