Taurus in 2013
With dreamy Neptune inspiring your House of Groups, community projects give you a great way to develop heart-to-heart relationships this year. Be sure to mark March 28th on your calendar. It's when your planetary guide, gracious Venus, unites with the radiant Sun and liberating Uranus. You're feeling naturally inclined to express yourself in a whole new way. Your approach to life and self-expression is really evolving this year. This may become more apparent after May 9th, the day of the Taurus Solar Eclipse. You're in the process of reinventing who you are and what's important to you. Furthering your education becomes a strong theme during the second half of the year. As lucky Jupiter shifts into Cancer and your House of Communications in late June, you're looking to learn new things. Still, don't sign up for any classes or related activities until after July 20th, when Messenger Mercury returns to forward motion. August 24th through the 27th is a potent time for you as Venus makes a potent connection with lucky Jupiter, spontaneous Uranus and powerful Pluto. Letting go of goals that don't really support you can open up your life to a whole new chapter of growth and abundance. With Pluto in its multi-year voyage through your House of Journeys, travel continues to yield transformative experiences. Consider taking a trip either between January 8th and February 1st or between November 5th and December 21st, when your planetary guide, gracious Venus, sashays through this sector of your chart.
Love And Romance
It's another big year for relationships. Structured Saturn in your House of Partnership has you taking your relationships more seriously. There may be challenging periods when your views of what it means to be a couple come under the microscope for close evaluation. During this period, it will become apparent which relationships serve you and which ones don't. If you're clinging tightly to your old definition of what you value in a partnership, things could be pretty tense mid-January. That's because your planetary guide, Venus, first makes a stressful square with innovative Uranus on January 12th and then unites with probing Pluto on the 16th. Watch a tendency to idealize another person on February 28th as Venus couples with imaginative Neptune. You'll get great insights into a relationship during the Lunar Eclipse on April 25th that will enable you to see whether it's as valuable as you thought. With the Solar Eclipse occurring in your sign on May 9th, you're entering into a new period of self-expression. Your relationships will need to adapt to keep pace with your personal evolution. Things heat back up again mid-November when Venus once again connects to Uranus and Pluto. Don't forget that honesty is the best policy. Between August 24th and August 27th, it's time to let go of an attitude that's been holding you back from opening your heart. The results could be magical. Avoid making commitments to an existing or potential partner from December 21st through the end of the year and into February. This is when Venus is retrograde, making it a better time to reassess your values than to make lasting decisions.
Career And Money
You shine at work from February 1st through the 25th as your planetary guide, gracious Venus, sashays through your House of Career. An especially potent time occurs around February 6th, when Venus makes a harmonious trine to lucky Jupiter. It seems as if you have a guardian angel at the office. A raise or promotion may even be in the works. When a Lunar Eclipse shines on October 18th, you may find yourself wanting to hide out from work responsibilities. Watch that you don't sacrifice your wellbeing to your work commitments, yet don't avoid tasks that others are relying on you to complete. As for your financial life, the first half of the year you've got lucky Jupiter in your House of Money. This fortunate placement is especially powerful after January 30th, when the Planet of Expansion shifts into direct motion. During this time, additional streams of cash flow seem magnetically attracted to you. That's not to say you shouldn't be diligent when it comes to managing your money. Look to your investments with cautious optimism, since it won't do to make rash decisions that you'll later regret. On the Lunar Eclipse on May 24th, pay attention to how your debts may be affecting an important relationship. Unclear boundaries regarding money can inspire unnecessary tension. Take the opportunity to talk about any unresolved issues. Money may manifest from a joint venture between October 7th and November 5th, when Venus travels through your House of Shared Resources.
