Taurus (20 April – 20 May)
There’s a lot of earth element planetary energy this month, which favours you being one of the earth signs.
In fact, on September 7th, there’s a Grand Earth Trine involving ideas and communication planet, Mercury in Virgo, Saturn in Capricorn and Uranus in Taurus. Saturn and Uranus combine the old and the new and this whole combination feels creative and productive.
If you’re a typical earth sign, you like to make things and deal with what’s real. You want to hold, touch, feel and use all your senses to savour life to the full. As planets in earth signs highlight the sectors of your horoscope that are about personal goals, creativity and exploration, this is where to focus your time and attention.
Do whatever brings you pleasure, do more of what you love and remember that earth signs are fertile and fecund. Attract abundance into your life, make love, give birth to a child or a masterpiece. Channel your creative energy into something new. This is the theme of the New Moon on September 9th, which also falls in earth sign Virgo.
Also, as September begins, try again with a travel or study project. Action planet Mars is direct in Capricorn ruling these areas of your life until the 11th. Practical Saturn turns direct in Capricorn on the 6th. Decide where you’re heading and why and you can make things happen.
On the 11th, Mars return to Aquarius and your career and vocation sector where it remains until November 15th. Think back to what you were working on from mid-May to the end of June 2018, as Mars is retracing its steps in this same sector of your horoscope.
This is an excellent time to be ambitious, to focus on work and learn new skills. The only proviso comes on September 18th when Mars clashes with unpredictable Uranus in your star sign Taurus. This can be a symbol of things not working out rather than going well and it isn’t a good date to be overly impulsive or take huge risks.
Your ruling planet Venus is in another air sign, Libra, up until the 9th, so both work sectors are highlighted in September. This theme is picked up again in the last 10 days of the month, when ideas planet Mercury moves into Libra on the 22nd followed by the Sun on the 23rd, the day of the Equinox. The Full Moon on the 25th is ideal for bringing matters to completion and focusing on your work and your health.
This period of the year is potentially successful for you and there’s powerful dynamic planetary energy on both the 24th and 27th when Mars joins forces with Mercury, the communicator, and the Sun, the boss. It would be wise to back at your desk or working on new projects before the end of the month.
This is also potentially a big month for love and relationships as Venus, your ruler, moves into sexy Scorpio on the 9th. Venus remains here for the majority of the next four months until early January 2019. Venus in Scorpio is passionate but potentially jealous and obsessive. This is about deep emotions and learning more about yourself through your 1-to-1’s.
Venus joins expansive Jupiter in Scorpio where it’s been since October 2017. This can be an abundant time for relationships, either personal or professional, although Jupiter rules liberation and freedom as well as plenty.
Be willing to explore when it comes to relationships, whether you dive into therapy, couples counselling or a personal development course. This is the beginning of an exciting journey which can take you deep into unexplored territory. A mind-blowing affair is not out of the question.
If you’re looking for love, this is a month to throw yourself wholeheartedly into finding love. Note that the plethora of planets in Virgo also light up your romance sector. You have a double whammy of deep and intense astrology. See where it leads you.
