The Sun enters the sign of Taurus on April 19th at 7:39 p.m., Mountain Time. Taurus is an earth sign associated with the planet of love, Venus. The sign of Taurus is about art, beauty, comfort and luxury. Often occupations of this sign are architects, interior designers, ceramics, pottery and gardeners. They make things more beautiful.
There are some exciting astrological alignments happening during Taurus. One is that it’s an Eclipse month. On April 30th will be a Partial Solar Eclipse and then on May 16th will be a total Lunar Eclipse. The Solar Eclipse will be seen in southern South America. The Lunar Eclipse will be seen in eastern US, South America and western Europe. All the Eclipses this year will be square to stern Saturn. It is likely that authority figures will want to take charge. Don’t let them. You are your own authority figure.
Also, mid-month, Mercury turns retrograde in Gemini. Mercury will be going backwards from May 10th through June 2nd. Retrogrades are great times to regroup, rethink and reboot. Gemini is associated with writing and ideas. If you are interested in creating a new concept, now it the time. Brainstorming with friends on new projects are favored. If you create a think tank during this time, many ideas will blossom. Also, what a great retrograde to reorganize your office, files or at least clean out your inbox.
Another astrological change will be Jupiter entering Aries on May 12, 2022, and will remain there until May 17, 2023. Jupiter will do a brief retrograde in Pisces from October 28, 2022, until December 20, 2022. If you haven’t finished any situations with Jupiter in Pisces, those three months will give you time for completion. Jupiter in Aries will be much, much more dynamic and will begin a new phase for the world. Jupiter is involved with travel and should open up many places that have been on lockdown. Everyone will feel more energized and a bit restless. What new beginnings do you want to start? Jupiter in Aries is a moving-forward phase. I think we’re all ready for that!
Regarding the visible planets, everything is happening in the predawn sky. If you are an early riser, you are in for a treat. Go outside about ½ hour before sunrise and look east. You will see Venus, Mars, Saturn and Jupiter! Venus and Jupiter will be bright and easy to see. Mars and Saturn are dimmer, but still visible. Remember they always travel along the Ecliptic, which is the great highway in the sky where are the planets travel.
See you next in Gemini!
