Taurus is the sign most closely associated with money and sensuality. Being one of the earth signs, Taurus rules gardening, growth, fertility & productivity.
The earth signs represent longevity and the ability to focus on long-term goals and keep walking steadily towards them one step at a time.
Taurus is the sign of the plodder; persistent, constant, enduring and capable of creating a lasting legacy and there are some truly great people born under the sign of the bull.
Forget New Year’s Day; this is the start you’re looking for.
This is the first New Moon after the Equinox on March 20th and astrologically, this is when nature, life, you, everything leaps into action.
Aries is the first sign of the zodiac; dynamic, go-getting, courageous, bold, full of vitality and spirit so jump to it. Sow seeds, start something new, let the world know who you are and what you have to offer.
What’s your USP, what’s special about you? Aries is one of the fire signs and the fire signs are big on personality; ‘this is who I am, take it or leave it’. Time to unleash your inner drama queen, your inner warrior, your inner diva as you set your intentions not only for the next fortnight (New Moon to Full Moon phase) but for the year ahead.
Mercury remains here until 1st May 2015 and next week on 20th April 2015, the Sun joins Mercury in the slow, methodical sign of Taurus leaving behind fiery Aries.
As the personal planets move from one sign of the zodiac to the next, there is a significant change as each sign is dramatically different to the previous one.
Aries’ element is fire and rules speed, danger, action, masculine energy. Taurus’ element is earth and rules sensuality, productivity, love, money and feminine energy.
Eclipse season is really nearly almost over. We’ve experienced an amazing Solar Eclipse at 29 Pisces, the last degree of the zodiac, on March 20 2015 and a dramatic Lunar Eclipse at 14 Libra over the Easter Weekend on Saturday 4 April 2015.
The Lunar Eclipse was especially punchy as it pulled in the Uranus-Pluto square which gave us one final showdown on March 17 2015.
I suspected the Lunar Eclipse was going to be something of a doozy as it connected with key planets/angles in charts of people dear to me and yes, the unexpected happened.
I don’t want to go into all the details and we are all fine but it’s a reminder that the eclipses are powerful planetary events. An event came out of left field in our lives and it will take a while for everything to settle again.
Don’t forget to read your monthly stars which offer you a personal insight into your month ahead.
1. Lunar Eclipse – Saturday April 4th
Eclipses occur when the Sun, Moon & Earth are in alignment and one planetary body casts a shadow on another. Key questions to ask yourself leading up to an eclipse are “who or what is being eclipsed?” and “what am I not seeing?” An eclipse period often brings what’s hidden to light.
In some respects, April falls into two distinct halves for you although there’s one key theme that runs throughout the month and that’s money.
Your ruling planet Mars entered the money sector and money sign Taurus on the last day of March and it remains in this earth sign until mid-May 2015.
Now’s the time to turn your attention to finances and for some this will coincide with the end of the tax year, balancing the books, working out expenses, keeping tabs on the flow of money in and out.
Taurus isn’t Mars’ favourite sign as Mars likes action and speed and in Taurus the pace is inevitably slow. Now’s the time to be practical and prove you can be dependable and reliable. Create some new money goals and work steadily towards them.
The relationship planets, Venus and Mars, are both in your sign of Taurus as April gets underway and this year, these two key planets remain especially close in the heavens.
Venus is your ruling planet and Mars is your partner planet and this indicates a closeness between you and someone special.
If you’re married or in a relationship, spend more time with each other and work at partnership. Same goes if you’re in a joint venture or business partnership; be proactive in the relationship as a close bond can reap you rewards.
Venus, your ruler, remains in Taurus until the 11th and this is a wonderful time of year to pamper yourself. Venus, goddess of love, connects with her sensual nature in Taurus. Enjoy good food, walks in nature, spa dates and savour life to the full. Any kind of beauty treatments are highly recommended whilst Venus is in your sign.
Your ruling planet, Mercury, never moves far away from the Sun so in astrology Mercury is often where the action’s at.
In real life, your curious and inquisitive nature is the catalyst that ensures you too are often where the action’s at.
As the month begins, Mercury is in Aries, the sign that rules friends, groups and your wider social network but also your hopes and wishes.
In some respects, this is potentially a soul-searching month when one eye is on the future and what next and this might be linked to events that took place in March concerning your career or your future path in life.
April is barely underway and there’s another key turning point, a major planetary configuration and this concerns a Lunar Eclipse cutting across the foundations of your chart.
This is super-important for you as your sign of Cancer is ruled by the Moon and your moods tend to be in sync with the cycle of the Moon. Just as the Moon waxes and wanes, your own emotions can fluctuate and change from day-to-day, hour by hour.
The Lunar Eclipse takes place on the 4th during the Easter weekend and it cuts across the Aries/Libra axis of your chart. This is an important eclipse cycle which began in October 2013 and continues until March 2016.
This is because Aries and Libra are the signs which represent the foundations of your chart. Aries points to your career and where you’re heading in life and Libra relates to your home and family, your past and where you come from.
April’s a lively month astrologically as soon as it gets underway. The major planetary configuration is a Lunar Eclipse which takes place on the 4th during the Easter weekend.
This eclipse cuts across the Aries/Libra axis of your chart so this might be about education or knowledge; your beliefs, what gives your life meaning; the bigger picture; travel or new experiences.
These are the areas highlighted by the eclipse and in one or more of these areas you’re ripe for change and doing things differently.
For some, this might feel as if it’s a crisis moment, that you’re at a crossroads and the decisions you make now will reverberate for some time to come. Whether to study, whether to move abroad, whether to teach, whether to follow a new spiritual or religious path, etc.
