Decan 1 Taurus Horoscope

should be a similar to last year only more fortunate, with one of the luckiest transits of all later in the year. Like last year, the major influence for all of is Neptune sextile your decan. This spiritually uplifting influence will be felt more strongly by those born April 23 to  If you were born from April 20 to 22, you will have felt this transit most strongly last year, and should already have gained much insight about yourself and the world in general.

This is a dreamy and positive influence which is hard to notice at first. You may find you are more interested in groups and wanting learning more about astrology or similar subjects, to give you a broader understanding of how life works. You will definitely feel more compassionate and sensitive about those things which affect large numbers of people.

Up until early April will be the more challenging period of the year. You may already be feeling as if things are working against you, or that your relationships are not going so well. If this is the case, it will be due to the October solar eclipse. A solar eclipse opposite your decan does make it harder to get your own way and to achieve your Neptune hopes and dreams.

The first quarter of is a time to step back from situations which cause difficulty. Try to work out why you are getting negative reactions from people. You may have to tone down your self-assertion and think about what you are really trying to achieve, and if this is the best option for you.

The toughest period of the year will be from January 30 to February  Mercury retrograde at this time will cause scattered thinking and some difficulties in expressing yourself. Mercury square your decan means you need to take more care with what you say. Any important decisions or negotiations should be avoided at this time.

The best time of comes from August 6 to September  Jupiter trine your decan is the ultimate in good luck transits. Opportunities will arise to make more money, travel, or take up new studies.

Decan 2 Taurus Horoscope

You have some really good luck coming your way later this year. The first half of also present some opportunities for growth, but you will have to make your own luck more so than later in the year. From January 10 until June 27, Jupiter square your decan will greatly increase your desire to have more fun and increase your wealth.

You can achieve all these things now, but need to watch out for a few things. If you get too greedy or over-confident, the opportunities will fizzle away, or you could end up with less in your pocket. You must remain conservative and maintain high morals in order to make the most of any offers or lucky streaks.

Mercury retrograde from January 21 to 31 is a time to be extra careful. Mercury square your decan means you should really avoid arguments as your thinking is not so spot on. Poor judgement skills means you need to avoid signing contracts or making important decisions at this time.

A big turn-around this year begins in September when your luck changes for the better. To start with, the September 13 solar eclipse will provide excellent conditions for making progress right through until March This solar eclipse trine your decan will clear your path of obstacles and improve all relationships. High self-confidence means you can easily achieve your goals and make the most of the good fortune from the following transit.

From September 22 until the end of November , Jupiter trine your decan comes with none of the catches of your earlier Jupiter transit. These are the best stars you have had for years.

Decan 3 Taurus Horoscope

The testing conditions you have experienced for most of last year will continue for a few months in You will be happy to find that there is a major shift in your life coming up in mid September though, where struggle gives way to ease and good fortune.

Since October last year, Jupiter square your decan has been increasing your desire to make more money and have more possessions. This influence lasts all of January, and because of retrograde motion, it comes back again from June 15 to August You can make gains in January but will need to curb your enthusiasm. By only taking what you need, and not over estimating your capabilities, you will find enjoyment and satisfaction. The next pass of Jupiter is more problematic which I will get to shortly.

The March 20 solar eclipse will improve your mood and add harmony to your relationships. This creative and energetic influence lasts until September 13, to be followed by an equally good eclipse. The problem with this part of the year is a restrictive influence from Saturn which will lessen the benefits of the eclipse.

From June 1 to September 30, Saturn opposite your decan could well make this a draining time. You will begin to feel weighed down and pessimistic about the challenges and blockages to your progress. This will be most noticeable from June 15 to August 16 during the return of the Jupiter square. The time period for extra caution is further narrowed down to by Jupiter square Saturn, from July 25 to August

Jupiter square Saturn combines both of your challenging transits in a very testing manner. The urge to expand will be greatly frustrated by lack or resources or some other blockage. It may be other people, especially superiors that stand in your way, or simply circumstance. Whatever the cause of the frustration and delays, it will be a signal to change direction or retreat. Better times are not far off, so it would be best to time important matters for later this year.

The September 13 solar eclipse heralds the beginning of the good times you so much deserve. This solar eclipse trine your decan is not hampered by anything else like earlier in the year. You confidence will return, relationships will get back on track, and your mood will greatly improve.

The luckiest period of your life for a number of years comes from mid November  til the end of February  Jupiter trine your decan is the most fortunate of all influences in astrology. You should be happy and optimistic, ready to cash in on all the various opportunities that come your way. Overseas travel, increased income, higher education and more enriching experiences are all on the cards. You will also find more satisfaction and enjoyment from everyday activities.

Your Taurus Zodiac Sign Guide: Everything to Know About the Sensual Earth Sign

April is here which means springtime showers and Instagram-worthy blooms outside. It also means Taurus season is upon us. Annually, roughly between April 20 and May 20, the sun moves through the second sign of the zodiac, Taurus, symbolized by the Bull.

Although we can't help but throw ourselves into organization and self-improvement projects every spring, it's also a time to slow down, embrace mindfulness, and do our best to take in simple, joyful moments with loved ones. This urge to take it easy goes hand-in-hand with the energy of Taurus, as it's an earth sign associated with reveling in life's simplest pleasures and gravitating to all things aesthetically appealing, comfortable, and sensual. Many of these themes stem from the influence of Taurus' ruler, Venus, the planet of love, beauty, and money.

Several steadfast, luxury-loving, hard-working Bulls: Lizzo, Adele, Jessica Alba, Rosario Dawson, Aidy Bryant, Tina Fey, Penelope Cruz, Ellie Kemper, and Gigi Hadid. These celebs are all astrologically gifted with the willfulness and grounded power that keeps them down to earth and endlessly shining as creatives and entrepreneurs.

Here, everything you need to know about the artistic, reliable, down-to-earth sign.

Taurus Personality Traits

Those born between April 20 and May 20 can likely assume their sun sign is Taurus. (It's not definitive, because the sun moves between signs on different days annually.) Also note that while we tend to refer to ourselves as our sun sign, it's just one detail of a natal chart, which is basically a unique snapshot of the sky when you were born. But it's a detail that helps color your core sense of self, identity, personal style, self-esteem, and confidence.

Stubborn and sensual

Typical sun in Taurus traits include being hard-headed, down-to-earth, tenacious, reliable, loyal, and sensual. All of these characteristics mirror themes covered by the Second House of Self-Worth and Income, which Taurus rules. The Second House involves material possessions, how you handle and feel about money-making, the traits you value in yourself and others, as well as how you experience your immediate environment and five senses.

The pleasure-seeker

Given their ruling planet Venus, Taurus tend to appreciate or throw themselves into everything artistic (from music to dance to theater) and romantic (think mood lighting, warm, cozy blankets, and all of the candles and essential oils). Given that few signs appreciate luxurious scents and textures like a Taurus, a fabric like cashmere was made for them. So too was languorous lovemaking with plenty of foreplay. But even outside of the bedroom, the name of the game for the Bull is taking their sweet time. Even when it comes to getting angry, they're known for their long fuse.

The fixed earth sign

Every sign is assigned a quality (cardinal, mutable, or fixed), which explains the sign's basic energy. There's a cardinal, mutable, and fixed sign within every element (fire, earth, air, water). Taurus is the fixed one of the earth group, which earns them their stereotype as stubborn but also rock-steady and achievement-oriented. They naturally get locked into a set pattern of behavior or perspective, which means it can be tough for them to switch it up.

RELATED: What Are the Zodiac Signs? A Guide to the 12 Signs

Taurus' best personality traits:

Taurus' resolute character, pragmatism, patience, and love of luxury make them loyal, heartfelt, loving, and soothing to be around. They're your favorite chef, Netflix and chill companion, date to a concert, or friend you can rely on to plan the most memorable spa day (even if it just entails throwing on a lux face mask and sipping rosé at home).

Taurus' worst personality traits:

As they're hard-headed and slow to take action on just about anything, Taurus' deliberate M.O. and fixed, willful perspective can cause them to come off as unadventurous, obstinate, and even closed-minded. They'll state their case, then conveniently weasel out of seeing the other side of an argument. Sure, their ability to dig their heels in can be helpful. (Think of how Taurean Queen Elizabeth II has managed to keep the monarchy alive, in spite of one obstacle after the next.) But it could also curb necessary change.

What Taurus Are Like in Love & Bed

Taurus' romance style

If a potential partner is moving at a snail's pace in one way or another &#x; whether that's by holding off on asking for your number, making plans for a second date, or committing to an exclusive relationship &#x; it's quite possible they're under the influence of that feet-dragging, "I'll-do-it-in-my-own-time" Taurus energy. The earth sign isn't interested in moving at anyone else's pace, including in romance. They're considering all of the factors &#x; what's in their head and heart, sure, but also practical matters that could help or hinder the potential for a lasting match, particularly those related to their comfort and security. (Like, are they career-oriented enough? Do they prioritize travel above saving up for a downpayment?)

Taurus' ultimate date night is spent in &#x; primarily around the dining room table, indulging in gourmet comfort foods, and the couch, cozying up, snuggling, and making out. If they do head out, they'll want to be surrounded by nature and/or art. Think doing a walking tour of their favorite murals around town or planning an unhurried hike along a tried-and-true trail.

Taurus' sexual style

Taurus' signature leisurely pace shows up in the bedroom. They're known for plenty of stage-setting, enjoying soft kisses, handholding, and flirty glimpses across the room that all lead up to thoughtful lovemaking that can last for hours. Earthy and sensual, they take great pride in ensuring all of the senses get their fix. If they fear they won't have the time they'd like to do it right, they might actually pass or postpone a between-the-sheets session.  And thanks to their ruling planet Venus, they adore incorporating old-school romance &#x; like candles, baths, massages, love notes &#x; into their steamy repertoire.

Taurus Compatibility

Wondering how Taurus matches up with your sign as a friend, a lover, a colleague, or in terms of any other one-on-one relationship? Here, their closest allies and born nemeses:

Most compatible with Taurus:

Signs that share the same element tend to be the most simpatico (e.g. two water signs, like Scorpio and Cancer or two air signs, like Gemini and Libra). This is especially the case for two earth signs, both of whom have an innate appreciation for keeping it real.

Earth is also traditionally compatible with water, because the two elements complement one another. Water signs help earth signs sit with their emotions and hit the pause button on rational thought in order to dream, while earth signs can guide water signs to plan and organize.

That said, a Taurus often hits it off with a similarly pragmatic, thoughtful Virgo, home-loving, money-conscious Cancer, or industrious and tradition-minded Capricorn.

Least compatible with Taurus:

As with most of the zodiac signs, opposites can attract &#x; and Taurus and Scorpio often bond over their desire to foster a deep, unwavering, emotional and physical connection. But because both are fixed and innately stubborn, they could fail to compromise and find common ground, which is a death sentence for any partnership.

Taurus is also square (the most challenging angle that can exist between two signs) spotlight-loving fire sign Leo and humanitarian air sign Aquarius. Unless they have other positive aspects in their natal charts, Taurus can respect the other fixed signs for their ability to take a position and then stay the course, but emotionally, they're too set in their personal ways to enjoy a truly compatible connection.

What If You Have Taurus Elsewhere in Your Chart?

As mentioned previously, the sun sign is one of many aspects of a natal chart. When you were born, the moon and all the planets in our solar system were in one of the 12 signs and a particular position &#x; all of which help to inform your personality and areas of your life. Here's what it means if Taurus shows up in any of the main areas of your chart:

Taurus Moon

The moon, which spends about two to three days in each sign, influences your emotions and intuition. If it was in Taurus at the time of your birth, your heart craves security achieved through concrete, material details (think a tranquil home or a career you love). You're in no rush to sign up for a long-term relationship, preferring to take as long as you need to ensure that all of the boxes that make you feel safe are firmly checked.

Taurus Mercury

Mercury, which spends about two to three weeks in a sign, shapes your communication style. If it was in Taurus when you were born, you speak directly and in a measured way that's well thought out and errs toward diplomatic. When expressing yourself, you tend to point to concrete, real world examples and share what you've learned through your senses.

Taurus Venus

Venus, which remains in a sign for about three to five weeks, influences how you behave in relationships and how you attract others. If you were born with the planet of love in Taurus, you're organically comfortable expressing yourself romantically, given that Venus is at home in the sign of the Bull, and therefore, the energy of the planet and the sign are in sync. You're sensual, loyal, and most content when your environment and personal style reflects your love of luxury and beauty. You'll beeline to a match who feels familiar and who is cool with all the tried-and-true routines you adore, like a date night devoted to chowing on artisan snacks and bingeing episodes of a series you've loved since junior high.

Taurus Mars

Mars, which remains in a sign for six or seven weeks, affects your energy, strength, sexual style, and how you experience courage. If you were born while the fiery, dynamic, fighter planet was in fixed, earthy Taurus, you'll be slow, steady, and deliberate when taking action on anything that fires you up. That might sound counterintuitive, but if you care enough about anything &#x; from a career opportunity to a potential romance &#x; you'll refuse to be rushed.

Taurus Ascendant (or Rising)

Your ascendant or rising sign influences how you present yourself to the world. As a Taurus ascendant, you come off as unflinching in your values, down-to-earth, loyal, and easygoing. But it can also be tough for you to shift gears, preferring to stick with what you know &#x; be that a place you've always lived, a long-term relationship you identify with, or a professional path you've been on since you were a kid.

Your life is a lie: The zodiac has changed — here's your (new?) sign

This news may be especially hard to hear for Libras, who crave balance and order. Or Leos, whose sense of self is strong. Geminis, both sides of you may be rocked.

Are you sitting down? Good. Because the zodiac has changed. What you long believed was your astrological sign may not be your astrological sign.

And, a bunch of us now have wack tattoos.

The dates for the Western zodiac calendar have, it turns out, shifted, with each one starting later — like, a lot later. If you were a Capricorn born in early to mid-January, you're now a Sagittarius.

Cancers born in early to mid-July? Stop being such emotional cry-babies. You're actually Geminis.

Oh, and there's a new 13th astrological sign now: Ophiuchus. Sounds like a "Matrix" character, we know. But those of you born between Nov. 29 to Dec. 17, you're all now Ophiuchus-es.

RELATED: What's your sign? Nail salon matches mani to your astrology

NASA broke the news early this year in a blog post that explained that when ancient Babylonians created the zodiac over 3, years ago, they wanted dates on the calendar to correspond with star constellations. But, there were 13 constellations, and they were working with a month calendar. So they ditched Ophiuchus.

NASA also pointed out that the Earth's axis doesn't even point in the same direction as it did when the original constellations were drawn, so all our signs have different date ranges now anyway.

In other words: astrological chaos. And the science nerds at NASA don't even care that they've upended our lives. They released a statement last week explaining, "Here at NASA, we study astronomy, not astrology. We didn’t change any zodiac signs, we just did the math.”

Did you know that there are 88 constellations in the night sky? Over the course of several thousand years, human beings have cataloged and named them all. But only 12 of them are particularly famous and continue to play an active role in our astrological systems. These are known as the zodiac signs, 12 constellations that correspond to the different months of the year.

Each of these occupies a sector of the sky which makes up 30° of the ecliptic, starting at the vernal equinox &#; one of the intersections of the ecliptic with the celestial equator. The order of these astrological signs is Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces. Here are all the zodiac signs and their dates. If your birthday falls within one of those date ranges, that&#;s your zodiac sign.

Granted, modern science has shown astrology to be an ancient fallacy, a way of connecting patterns in celestial movements to events and behaviors here on Earth. But for ancient people, such patterns were necessary given the fact that they lacked an understanding of human psychology, astronomy, and that Earth was not the center of the universe.

The concept of the zodiac originated in Babylon in the 2nd millennium BCE, and was later influenced by Hellenistic (Ancient Greek), Roman, and Egyptian culture. This resulted in a mix of traditions, where the 12 zodiac symbols were associated with the 12 Houses &#; different fields of experience associated with the various planets &#; and the four classical elements (Earth, Wind, Water and Fire).

In essence, astrology maintains that celestial phenomena are related to human activity, so the signs are held to represent certain characteristics of behavior and personality traits. What we know today as astrology comes from the 2nd century AD, as it was formally described by Ptolemy in his work, Tetrabiblos.

This book was responsible for the spread of astrology&#;s as we know it across Europe and the Middle East during the time of the Roman Empire. These traditions have remained relatively unchanged for over seventeen centuries, though some alterations have been made due to the subsequent discoveries of the other planets in our Solar System.

Naturally, the birth of the modern psychology, biology and astronomy has completely discredited the notion that our personalities are determined by birth signs, the position of the stars or the planets. Given what we know today of the actual elements, the movements of the planets, and the forces that govern the universe, astrology is now known for being little more than superstition.

What&#;s more, the dates of the ‘star signs’ were assigned over 2, years ago, when the zodiac was first devised. At that time, astronomers believed that the Earth&#;s position was fixed in the universe, and did not understand that the Earth is subject to precession &#; where Earth&#;s rotational and orbital parameters slowly change with time. As such, the zodiac signs no longer correspond to constellations of stars that appear in night sky.

And last, but certainly not least, there is the issue of the missing 13th sign, which corresponds to the constellation Ophiuchus. Over years ago, this constellation was deliberately left out, though the Sun clearly passes in front of it after passing in front of Scorpius (aka. Scorpio) and before reaching Sagittarius.

It is unclear why ancient astrologers would do this, but it is a safe bet that they wanted to divide the ° path of the Sun into 12 equal parts. But the true boundaries that divide the constellations, as defined by the International Astronomical Union (IAU), are not exact. And Ophiuchus actually spends more time behind the Sun than its immediate neighbor (19 days compared to Scorpius&#; 12).

To find out what zodiac sign you were really born under, check out this story from BBC&#;s iWonder. And in the meantime, here are the zodiac signs, listed in order along with what they mean, and some interesting facts associated with their respective constellations:


Aries: March 21 &#; April 19

The sign of Aries, which covers 0° to 30° of celestial longitude, is represented by The Ram, which is based on the Chrysomallus &#; the flying ram that provided the Golden Fleece in Greek mythology. Aries is associated with the First House, known traditionally as Vita (Latin for life) and in the modern context as the &#;House of Self&#;. Aries is associated with Fire, and the ruling celestial body of Aries is Mars.

The Aries constellation is also home to Teegarden’s Star, one of Sun’s closest neighbors, located approximately 12 light years away. It appears to be a red dwarf, a class of low temperature and low luminosity stars. And then there&#;s Alpha Areitis, which is easily spotted by the naked eye. Also known as &#;Hamal&#; &#; literally “head of the sheep” in Arabic &#; this star is located at the point where constellations angles downward to form an arc.

For those with telescopes, several galaxies can be spotted within the Aries constellation as well. These include the spiral galaxy NGC and the large 13th magnitude NGC spiral galaxy. NGC is another, which is faint (at magnitude 12) and part of a galaxy group. And then there&#;s the dwarf irregular galaxy NGC , which is considered a Magellanic-type galaxy with a larger than average core.

Aries is also home to several meteor showers, such as the May Arietids. This daylight meteor shower begins between May 4th and June 6th with maximum activity happening on May 16th. The Epsilon Arietids are also a daylight occurrence, and are active between April 25th to May 27th with peak activity on May 9th. And then there are the Daytime Arietids, which occur from May 22nd to July 2nd with a maximum rate of one a minute on June 8th.

To top it off, the Aries constellation contains several stars with extrasolar planets. For example, HIP , a G5 type star, is orbited by three confirmed exoplanets, all of them giant planets (all Super-Earths). HD , also a G-type main sequence star, has two orbiting planets (which appear to be Super-Jupiters). And HD , a G0 type star, has one orbiting gas giant that roughly the same size as Jupiter.


Taurus: April 20 &#; May 20

The sign of Taurus, which covers 30° to 60° of celestial longitude, is represented by The Bull &#; which is based on the Cretan Bull that fathered the Minotaur and was killed by Theseus. Taurus is associated with the Second House, known by the Latin name of Lucrum (wealth) and by the modern name, &#;House of Value&#;, and the element Earth. The ruling celestial body of Taurus is Venus.

Taurus&#; brightest star, Alpha Tauri, is also known by its traditional name, Al Dabaran (which was Latinized to become Aldebaran). The name, which is Arabic, literally means &#;the Follower&#; because of the way the Taurus constellation appears to follow the Pleiades star cluster across the sky. In Latin, it was traditionally known as Stella Dominatrix, but to Medieval English astronomers, it was known as Oculus Tauri &#; literally the “eye of Taurus.”

There is one major annual meteor shower associated with the constellation of Taurus: the annual Taurids, which peak on or about November 5th of each year and have a duration period of about 45 days. The maximum fall rate for this meteor shower is about 10 meteors per hour, with many bright fireballs often occurring when the parent comet &#; Encke &#; has passed near perihelion.

And speaking of Pleiades (aka. Messier 45, The Seven Sisters) this cluster of stars is located perpendicular to Aldebaran in the night sky, and is visible to the unaided eye. Although it is made up of over confirmed stars, this object is identifiable by its seven particularly bright blue stars (though as many as 14 up can be seen with the naked eye depending on local observing conditions).


Gemini: May 21 &#; June 20

The sign Gemini covers 60° to 90° of the celestial longitude, and is represented by The Twins. These are based on the Dioscuri of Greek mythology, two mortals that were granted shared godhood after death. Gemini is part of the Third House, traditionally named Fratres (Brothers) and currently known as the House of Communications. The associated element for Geminis is Air, and the ruling celestial body is Mercury.

Gemini&#;s alpha and beta stars &#; aka. Castor and Pollux (&#;The Twins&#;) &#; are the easiest to recognize and can be spotted with the naked eye. Pollux is the brighter of the two, an orange-hued giant star of magnitude that is 34 light-years from Earth. Pollux has an extrasolar planet revolving around it, as do two other stars in Gemini, a super-Jupiter which was confirmed in

There are two annual meteor showers associated with the constellation of Gemini. The first is the March Geminids, which peaks on or around March 22nd. The average fall rate is generally about 40 per hour (but this varies) and the meteors appear to be very slow, entering our atmosphere unhurriedly and leaving lasting trails.

The second meteor shower are the Geminids themselves, which peak on or near the date of December 14th, with activity beginning up to two weeks prior and lasting for several days. The Geminids are one of the most beautiful and mysterious showers, with a rate of about per hour during a moonless night.

The Gemini constellation is also associated with Messier 35, a galactic open star cluster that is easily spotted with the naked eye. The star cluster is quite young, having formed some million years ago, and is quite bright due to it having blown away most of its leftover material (i.e. nebular dust and gas) that went into the star formation process. Other open clusters in Gemini include NGC , which lies directly southwest of M35 in the night sky.

Cancer: June 21 &#; July 22

Cancer, which covers 90° to ° of celestial longitude, is represented by The Crab &#; or Karkinos, a giant crab from Greek mythology that harassed Hercules during his fight with the Hydra. The sign is associated with the Fourth House &#; Genitor (Parent) in Latin, or the House of Home and Family in modern times. In terms of the elements, Cancers are characterized by the element of Water, and the ruling celestial body of Cancer is The Moon.

Cancer&#;s best known star is Beta Cancri, also known by its Arab name Altarf (&#;the End&#;). This magnitude star is located light-years from Earth and is a binary star system that consists of a spectral type K4III orange giant and a magnitude 14 red dwarf. This system is also home to a confirmed exoplanet, beta Cancri b, which is a Super-Jupiter with an orbital period of over days.

In terms of deep-sky objects, Cancer is best known as being the home of Messier Object 44 (aka. Praesepe, or the Beehive Cluster), an open cluster located in the center of the constellation. Located light-years from Earth, it is one of the nearest open clusters to our Solar System. M44 contains about 50 stars, the brightest of which are of the sixth magnitude.

The smaller, denser open cluster of Messier Object 67 can also be found in Cancer, which is light-years from Earth and contains approximately stars. And so can the famous quasar, QSO J+, which was used to measure the speed of gravity in the VLBI experiment conducted by Edward Fomalont and Sergei Kopeikin in September

The active galaxy OJ is also found in the Cancer constellation. Located billion light years away from Earth, this galaxy has a central supermassive black hole that is one of the largest known (with 18 billion solar masses), and produces quasi-periodic optical outbursts. There is only one meteor shower associated with the constellation of Cancer, which is the Delta Cancrids. The peak date for this shower is on or about January 16t, and has been known to average only about 4 comets per hour (and the meteors are very swift).


Leo: July 23 &#; Aug. 22

Those born under the sign of Leo, which covers ° to ° of celestial longitude, carry the sign of The Lion &#; which is based on the Nemean Lion of Greek mythology, a lion that had an impenetrable hide. The sign of Leo is tied to the Fifth House, known in Latin as Nati (Children), or by its modern name, House of Pleasure. The sign of Leo is also associated with the element of Fire and the ruling celestial body of Leo is The Sun.

There are five annual meteor showers associated with the constellation Leo. The first is the Delta Leonid meteor stream, which begins between February 5th through March 19th every year. The activity peaks in late February, and the maximum amount of meteors averages around 5 per hour. The next is the Sigma Leonid meteor shower, which begins on April 17th. This is a very weak shower, with activity rates no higher than 1 to 2 per hour.

The next is the November Leonids, the largest and most dependable meteor shower associated with the Leo constellation. The peak date is November 17th, but activity occurs around 2 days on either side of the date. The radiant is near Regulus and this is the most spectacular of modern showers.

The shower is made more spectacular by the appearance of the Temple-Tuttle comet, which adds fresh material to the stream when it is at perihelion. The last is the Leo Minorids, which peak on or about December 14th, which is believed to produce around 10 faint meteors per hour.

Leo is also home to some of the largest structures in the observable universe. This includes many bright galaxies, which includes the Leo Triplet (aka. the M60 group). This group of objects is made up of three spiral galaxies &#; Messier 65, Messier 66, and NGC

The Triplet is at a distance of 37 million light-years from Earth and has a somewhat distorted shape due to gravitational interactions with the other members of the Triplet, which are pulling stars away from M Both M65 and M66 are visible in large binoculars or small telescopes, but seeing them in all of their elongated glory requires a telescope.

In addition, it is also home to the famous objects Messier 95, Messier 96, and Messier These are spiral galaxies, in the case of M95 and M96 (with M95 being a barred spiral), while Messier is an elliptical galaxy which is known to have a supermassive black hole at its center. Then there is the Leo Ring (aka. Cosmic Horseshoe) a cloud of hydrogen and helium gas, that orbits two galaxies found within this constellation.

Virgo: Aug. 23 &#; Sept. 22

The sign of Virgo, which covers ° to ° of celestial longitude, is represented by the The Maiden. Based on Astraea from Greek mythology, the maiden was the last immortal to abandon Earth at the end of the Silver Age, when the gods fled to Olympus. Virgo is part of the Sixth House &#; Valetudo (Health) in Latin, or House of Health in modern times. They are also associated with the element of Earth and the ruling celestial body of Virgo is Mercury.

The brightest star in the Virgo constellation is Spica, a binary and rotating ellipsoidal variable &#; which means the two stars are so close together that they are egg-shaped instead of spherical &#; located between and light years from Earth. The primary is a blue giant and a variable star of the Beta Cephei type.

Besides Spica, other bright stars in Virgo include Beta Virginis (Zavijava), Gamma Virginis (Porrima), Delta Virginis (Auva) and Epsilon Virginis (Vindemiatrix). Other fainter stars that were also given names are Zeta Virginis (Heze), Eta Virginis (Zaniah), Iota Virginis (Syrma) and Mu Virginis (Rijl al Awwa). Virgo&#;s stars are also home to a great many exoplanets, with 35 verified exoplanets orbiting 29 of its stars.

The star 70 Virginis was one of the first planetary systems to have a confirmed exoplanet discovered orbiting it, which is times the mass of Jupiter. The star Chi Virginis has one of the most massive planets ever detected, at a mass of times that of Jupiter. The sun-like star 61 Virginis has three planets: one is a super-Earth and two are Neptune-mass planets.


Libra: Sept. 23 &#; Oct. 22

The sign of Libra covers ° to ° of celestial longitude. It is represented by the symbol of The Scales, which is based on the Scales of Justice held by Themis, the Greek personification of divine law and custom and the inspiration for modern depictions of Lady Justice. Libra is part of the Seventh House &#; Uxor (Spouse) or House of Partnership, are associated with the element of Air, and the ruling celestial body is Venus.

Two notable stars in the Libra constellation are Alpha and Beta Librae &#; also known as Zubenelgenubi and Zubeneschamali, which translates to &#;The Southern Claw&#; and &#;The Northern Claw&#;. Alpha Libae is a double star consisting of an A3 primary star with a slight blue tinge and a fainter type F4 companion, both of which are located approximately 77 light years from our Sun.

Beta Librae is the brighter of the two, and the brightest star in the Virgo constellation. This is a blue star of spectral type B8 (but which appears somewhat greenish) which is located roughly light years from Earth. Then there&#;s Gamma Librae (also called Zubenelakrab, which means &#;the Scorpion&#;s Claw&#;) which completes the Scorpion sign. It is an orange giant of magnitude , and is located light-years from Earth.

Libra is home to the star Gliese , which has a planetary system consisting of at least 6 planets. Both Gliese d and Gliese g are considered to be some of the most promising candidates for life. Gliese c is considered to be the first Earth-like exoplanet to be found within its parent star&#;s habitable zone. All of these exoplanets are of significance for establishing the likelihood of life outside of the Solar System.

Libra is also home to one bright globular cluster, NGC It is a fairly large and loose cluster, has an integrated magnitude of 9, and is located 40, light-years from Earth.


Scorpio: Oct. 23 &#; Nov. 21

The sign of Scorpio covers ° to ° of celestial longitude. Scorpio is represented by The Scorpion, which is based on Scorpius &#; a giant scorpion in Greek mythology sent by Gaia to kill Orion. Scorpio is part of the Eighth House &#; Mors (Death), known today as the House of Reincarnation &#; and is associated with the element of Water. Traditionally, the ruling celestial body of Scorpio was Mars, but has since become Pluto.

The Scorpius constellations includes many bright stars, the brightest being Alpha Scorpii (aka. Antares). The name literally means &#;rival of Mars&#; because of its distinct reddish hue. Other stars of note include Beta Scorpii (Acrab, or &#;the scorpion&#;), Delta Scorpii (Dschubba, or &#;the forehead&#;), Xi Scorpii (Girtab, also &#;the scorpion&#;), and Sigma and Tau Scorpii (Alniyat, &#;the arteries&#;).

Lambda Scorpii (Shaula) and Upsilon Scorpii (Lesath) &#; whose names both mean &#;sting&#;- mark the tip of the scorpion&#;s curved tail. Given their proximity to one another, Lambda Scorpii and Upsilon Scorpii are sometimes referred to as &#;the Cat&#;s Eyes&#;.

The Scorpius constellation, due to its position within the Milky Way, contains many deep-sky objects. These include the open clusters Messier 6 (the Butterfly Cluster) and Messier 7 (the Ptolemy Cluster), the open star cluster NGC (aka. Northern Jewel Box), and the globular clusters Messier 4 and Messier 80 (NGC ).

The constellation is also where the Alpha Scorpiids and Omega Scorpiids meteor showers take place. The Alphas begin on or about April 16th and end around May 9th, with a peak date of most activity on or about May 3rd. The second meteor shower, the Omega (or June) Scorpiids peaks on or about June 5th of each year. The radiant for this particular shower is closer to the Ophiuchus border and the activity rate on the peak date is high – with an average of about 20 meteors per hour and many reported fireballs.


Sagittarius: Nov. 22 &#; Dec. 21

The sign of Sagittarius covers ° to ° of celestial longitude and is represented by The Archer. This symbol is based on the centaur Chiron, who according to Greek mythology mentored Achilles in the art of archery. Sagittarius is part of the Ninth House &#; known as Iter (Journeys) or the House of Philosophy. Sagittarius&#; associated element is Fire (positive polarity), and the ruling celestial body is Jupiter.

Stars of note in the Sagittarius constellation include Alpha Sagittarii, which is also known as Alrami or Rukbat (literally &#;the archer&#;s knee&#;). Then there is Epsilon Sagittarii (&#;Kaus Australis&#; or &#;southern part of the bow&#;), the brightest star in the constellation &#; at magnitude Beta Sagittarii, located at a position associated with the forelegs of the centaur, has the traditional name Arkab, which is Arabic for &#;achilles tendon.&#;

The second-brightest star is Sigma Sagittarii (&#;Nunki&#;), which is a B2V star at magnitude , approximately light years from our Sun. Nunki is the oldest star name currently in use, having been assigned by the ancient Babylonians, and thought to represent the sacred Babylonian city of Eridu. Then there&#;s Gamma Sagittarii, otherwise known as Alnasl (the &#;arrowhead&#;). This is actually two star systems that share the same name, and both stars are actually discernible to the naked eye.

The Milky Way is at its densest near Sagittarius, since this is the direction in which the galactic center lies. Consequently, Sagittarius contains many star clusters and nebulae. This includes Messier 8 (the Lagoon Nebula), an emission (red) nebula located 5, light years from Earth which measures by 60 light years.

Though it appears grey to the unaided eye, it is fairly pink when viewed through a telescope and quite bright (magnitude ). The central area of the Lagoon Nebula is also known as the Hourglass Nebula, so named for its distinctive shape. Sagittarius is also home to the M17 Omega Nebula (also known as the Horseshoe or Swan Nebula).

This nebula is fairly bright (magnitude ) and is located about light-years from Earth. Then there&#;s the Trifid Nebula (M20 or NGC ), an emission nebula that has reflection regions around the outside, making its exterior bluish and its interior pink. NGC , a star forming region, is also associated with Sagittarius, located about light-years from Earth and showing both emission and reflection regions (blue and red).


Capricorn: Dec. 22 &#; Jan. 19

The sign of Capricorn spans ° to ° of celestial longitude and is represented by the Mountain Sea-Goat. This sign is based on Enki, the Sumerian primordial god of wisdom and waters who has the head and upper body of a mountain goat, and the lower body and tail of a fish. The sign is part of the Tenth House &#; Regnum (Kingdom), or The House of Social Status. Capricorns are associated with the element Earth, and the ruling body body is Saturn.

The brightest star in Capricornus is Delta Capricorni, also called Deneb Algedi. Like other stars such as Denebola and Deneb, it is named for the Arabic word for &#;tail&#;, which in this case translates to &#;the tail of the goat&#;. Deneb Algedi is a eclipsing binary star with a magnitude of , and which is located 39 light-years from Earth.

Another bright star in the Capricorni constellation is Alpha Capricorni (Algedi or Geidi, Arabic for &#;the kid&#;), which is an optical double star (two stars that appear close together) &#; both o which are binaries. It&#;s primary (Alpha² Cap) is a yellow-hued giant of magnitude , located light-years from Earth, while its secondary (Alpha¹ Cap) is a yellow-hued supergiant of magnitude , located light-years from Earth.

Beta Capricorni is a double star known as Dabih, which comes from the Arabic phrase &#;the lucky stars of the slaughter&#; a reference to ritual sacrifices performed by ancient Arabs. Its primary is a yellow-hued giant star of magnitude , light-years from Earth, while the secondary is a blue-white hued star of magnitude Another visible star is Gamma Capricorni (aka. Nashira, &#;bringing good tidings&#;), which is a white-hued giant star of magnitude , light-years from Earth.

Several galaxies and star clusters are contained within Capricornus. This includes Messier 30 (NGC ) a centrally-condensed globular cluster of magnitude Located approximately 30, light-years from our Sun, it cannot be seen with the naked eye, but has chains of stars extending to the north that can be seen with a telescope.

And then there is the galaxy group known as HCG 87, a group of at least three galaxies located million light-years from Earth. It contains a large elliptical galaxy, a face-on spiral galaxy, and an edge-on spiral galaxy. These three galaxies are interacting, as evidenced by the high amount of star formation in the face-on spiral, and the connecting stream of stars and dust between edge-on spiral and elliptical galaxy.

The constellation of Capricornus has one meteor shower associated with it. The Capricornid meteor stream peaks on or about July 30th and is active for about a week before and after, with an average fall rate is about 10 to 30 per hour.


Aquarius: Jan. 20 &#; Feb. 18

Aquarius, which spans ° to ° of celestial longitude, is represented by the Water Bearer. In ancient Greek mythology, Aquarius is Ganymede, the beautiful Phrygian youth who was snatched up by Zeus to become the cup-bearer of the Gods. Aquarius is part of the Eleventh House &#; Benefacta (Friendship), or House of Friendship, is associated with the element of Air. Traditionally, the ruling celestial body of Aquarius was Saturn, but has since changed to Uranus.

While Aquarius has no particularly bright stars, recent surveys have shown that there are twelve exoplanet systems within the constellation (as of ). Gliese , one of the nearest stars (15 light-years), was the first red dwarf start to be found to have a planetary system &#; which consists of four planets, one of which is a terrestrial Super-Earth. 91 Aquarii is an orange giant star orbited by one planet, 91 Aquarii b, a Super-Jupiter. And Gliese is a red dwarf star orbited by the first known long-period Jupiter-like planet, Gliese  b.

Aquarius is also associated with multiple Messier objects. M2 (NGC ) is located in Aquarius, which is an incredibly rich globular cluster located approximately 37, light-years from Earth. So is the four-star asterism M73 (which refers to a group of stars that appear to be related by their proximity to each other). Then there&#;s the small globular cluster M72, a globular cluster that lies a degree and half to the west of M

Aquarius is also home to several planetary nebulae. NGC , also known as the Helix Nebula, is located at a distance of about light years away, making it the closest planetary nebula to Earth. Then there&#;s the Saturn Nebula (NGC ) so-named because of its apparent resemblance to the planet Saturn through a telescope, with faint protrusions on either side that resemble Saturn&#;s rings.

There are five meteor showers associated with the constellation of Aquarius. The Southern Iota Aquarids begin around July 1st and end around September 18th, with the peak date occurring on August 6th with an hourly rate of meteors average. The Northern Iota Aquarids occur between August 11th to September 10th, their maximum peak occurring on or about August 25th with an average of meteors per hour.

The Southern Delta Aquarids begin about July 14th and end around August 18th with a maximum hourly rate of peaking on July 29th. The Northern Delta Aquarids usually begin around July 16th, and last through September 10th. The peak date occurs on or around August 13th with a maximum fall rate of about 10 meteors per hour.

Then there is the Eta Aquarid meteor shower, which begins about April 21th and ends around May 12th. It reaches its maximum on or about May 5th with a peak fall rate of up to 20 per hour for observers in the northern hemisphere and perhaps 50 per hour for observers in the southern hemisphere. Last, there is the March Aquarids, a daylight shower that may be associated with the Northern Iota Aquarid stream.


Pisces: Feb. 19 &#; March 20

The sign of Pisces covers ° to ° of celestial longitude and is represented by the The Fish. This symbol is derived from the ichthyocentaurs &#; a pair of centaurian sea-gods that had the upper body of a male human, the lower front of a horse, and the tail of a fish &#; who aided Aphrodite when she was born from the sea. Pisces is part of the Twelfth House of Carcer (Prison), or The House of Self-Undoing, and are associated with the element of Water. The ruling celestial body of Pisces is traditionally Jupiter, but has since come to be Neptune.

Beta Piscium, also known as Samakah (the &#;Fish&#;s Mouth&#;), is a B-class hydrogen fusing dwarf star in the Pisces constellation. Located light years from Earth, this star produces times more than light than our own Sun and is believed to be 60 million years old. The brightest star in the constellation, Eta Piscium, is a bright class B star that is located years away from our Solar System.

This star is also known by its Babylonian name, Kullat Nunu (which translates to &#;cord of the fish&#;), the Arab name Al Pherg (&#;pouring point of water&#;), and the Chinese name Yòu Gèng &#; which means &#;Official in Charge of the Pasturing&#;, referring to an asterism consisting of Eta Piscium and its immediate neighbors &#; Rho Piscium, Pi Piscium, Omicron Piscium, and Piscium.

And then there&#;s van Maanen&#;s Star (aka. Van Maanen 2) a white dwarf that is located about 14 light years from our Sun, making it the third closest star of its kind to our system (after Sirius B and Procyon B). Gamma Piscium is a yellow-orange giant star located about light years away, and is visible with just binoculars.

The Pisces constellationis also home to a number of deep-sky objects. These include M74, a loosely-wound spiral galaxy that lies at a distance of 30 million light years from our Sun. It has many clusters of young stars and the associated nebulae, showing extensive regions of star formation. Also, there&#;s CL +, a massive galaxy cluster that is primarily made up of yellow elliptical and spiral galaxies.  CL + lies at a distance of billion light-years from Earth and lenses the galaxy behind it (i.e. it creates arc-shaped images of the background galaxy).

Last, there the active galaxy and radio source known as 3C Located at a distance of million light-years from Earth, this galaxy has a supermassive black hole at its center. In addition to being the source of its radio waves, this black hole is also responsible for creating the massive jets that extend several million light-years in both directions from its center &#; making them some of the largest objects in the universe.

There is one annual meteor shower associated with Pisces which peaks on or about October 7 of each year. The Piscid meteor shower has a radiant near the Aries constellation and produces an average of 15 meteors per hour which have been clocked at speeds of up to 28 kilometers per second. As always, the meteoroid stream can begin a few days earlier and end a few days later than the expected peak and success on viewing depends on dark sky conditions.

Currently, the Vernal Equinox is currently located in Pisces. In astronomy, equinox is a moment in time at which the vernal point, celestial equator, and other such elements are taken to be used in the definition of a celestial coordinate system. Due to the precession of the equinoxes, the Vernal Equinox is slowly drifting towards Aquarius.

Astrology is a tradition that has been with us for thousands of years and continues to be observed by many people and cultures around the world. Today, countless people still consult their horoscope to see what the future has in store, and many more consider their birth sign to be of special significance.

And the fact that many people still consider it to be valid is an indication that superstitious and &#;magical&#; thinking is something we have yet to completely outgrow. But this goes to show how some cultural traditions are so enduring, and how people still like to ascribe supernatural powers to the universe.

Taurus Dates of Birth

The zodiacal Sign of Taurus commences on April 21th, but for seven days it does not come into its full power until on or about April 27th. From this date onwards it is in full strength until May 20th, and is then for seven days gradually losing its strength on account of becoming overlapped by the "cusp" of the incoming sign Gemini.

Taurus zodiac signs and meanings, like the animal that represents them, is all about strength, stamina and will. Stubborn by nature, the Taurus will stand his/her ground to the bitter end (sometimes even irrationally so). But that’s okay because the Taurus is also a loving, sympathetic and appreciative sign. The Taurus is very understanding and when we need someone to unburden ourselves to, we often share our deepest fears with the Taurians of the zodiac. Taurians are very patient, practical and efficient, they are excellent in matters of business and are also wonderful instructors/teachers. Although initially they may have their own best interest at heart, they are ultimately & endlessly generous with their time, possessions and love.

Taurus Dates: April 21 – May 21

In astrology, your Taurus Zodiac sign (also called sun sign or star sign) is decided by the position of the sun at the moment of your birth, as seen from Earth. The sun takes a year to travel through the twelve Zodiac signs, but it’s not exactly a year of days. The time it takes is closer to days. That’s why we have leap years.

Every fourth year we add a day to the calendar, the 29th of February, making that year days. Actually, there’s an additional rule, to make it more precise with the actual movement of earth and the sun: the starting year of a new century is not a leap year, unless it’s evenly divisible by So, was not a leap year, but was.

The leap years make the dates of each Zodiac sign change slightly. Normally, Taurus starts on April 21 and ends on May 21, but that’s just the mean. In reality it changes slightly in a four year period from one leap year to the next.

If you were born on the 21th of April or the 21st of May, you have to check if you’re really a Taurus or not. It never differs more than a day in each direction. The start of Taurus must be within the 20th to 21th of April, and the end of it within the 20th or 21st of May. People born on other dates need not be concerned.

Taurus Horoscope May 2015

Taurus Horoscope

In the New Year horoscope chart, the moon is in Taurus, bringing strong sentiments and possibly also some income at the beginning of the year. Other than that, not much is happening for Taurus in

The moon is quick to pass through a Zodiac sign. It&#;s a matter of a couple of days. Since it is already more than halfway through Taurus at New Year , it has moved on to the next Zodiac sign by January 2nd. Still, because it is in Taurus at the moment on which the annual horoscope is charted, it has some minor influence all through the year.

Moonshine in Taurus

The moon awakens emotions. In Taurus it would be more accurate to call them instincts and basic needs. Its silvery appearance also gives it the role in traditional astrology of bringing money. In past centuries, silver was almost equivalent to money &#; like in the French language, where d&#;argent means both money and silver. Gold was far too rare for common man to get hold of.

So, there is some good news for Taurus in That&#;s a welcome change from the two previous years, when Taurus was completely void of planets in the New Year horoscope chart. The future looks just as bland: Not until the year will there be a planet in Taurus in the New Year horoscope.

In , Jupiter passed through Taurus, which meant all kinds of success &#; not just money, but that too. The moon and Jupiter have some similarities in what they bring to the horoscope, so at least at the start of , there will be kind of a rerun of the fortunate tidings of , albeit to a lesser degree &#; but it may still feel better.

The moon in Taurus.
The moon is in Taurus in the New Year horoscope.

Of course, all those years without a planet in Taurus of the New Year horoscope don&#;t mean a complete lack of events for everyone born in that sign.

Planets pass through, creating events similar for all Taurus. And even more important: In the individual natal chart of each Taurus there are several planets forming aspects (special angles) to the planets continuing their orbits in the sky, and all of that has astrological significance in life.

But generally speaking, these several years are not the most remarkable for Taurus. A change will come in , when Uranus has entered the sign to remain there for a good seven years.

Less Talk, More Action in

In the New Year horoscope, the moon in Taurus has three aspects to other planets in the chart: Mars, Jupiter and Mercury. They increase the activity and importance of the moon, although the effect is brief.

To both Mars and Jupiter, the moon has square aspects (90°), indicating trouble but also opportunity. Mars and Jupiter, on the other hand, are in opposition (°), which means that they are unable to cooperate. Actually, they work in incompatible ways as long as that aspect remains.

The moon&#;s square aspect to Mars shows that Taurus is frequently disturbed by discussions about how things are and how they should be, as if words could really solve anything. Taurus finds it all quite pointless and doubts the complications introduced to matters that Taurus finds easy to solve.

And Taurus does apply easy solutions to things that others keep on discussing without reaching conclusions. Taurus can see what&#;s needed and just makes it happen, in the appropriate minor scale.

Enough Is Enough

The moon&#;s square aspect to Jupiter in the New Year horoscope shows today&#;s focus in the world on personal gain only. Although Taurus is quite able of self-management, this focus is a bit too much.

To Taurus, neither security nor wealth is certain if not shared &#; at least among those who are close, such as family, friends and neighbors. Taurus finds too much of selfishness unnatural and unproductive.

The square aspect makes Taurus spontaneously renounce such opportunities when they appear. And they do. So, Taurus avoids profiteering as much as possible, to avoid feeling uncomfortable and cheap. Enough is enough.

Taurus Benefits as a Bystander

As for in general, things certainly happen around Taurus, but they mostly involve other people. Taurus is a witness and sometimes indirectly affected, but rarely in the center of events.

What is particularly eventful in is the life and circumstances of Capricorn, because the sign has four celestial bodies in the New Year horoscope chart: Pluto and the sun, Mercury and Venus. They are conjunct in pairs, which increases both their power and their complexity.

What the four accomplish in Capricorn is concrete and lasting &#; building and rebuilding, ambitious projects leading to impressive results. In particular, this takes place in the home environment. Homes turn into brand new castles, families are fortified and aim for grand things. That&#;s because Capricorn is in the 4th House of the World Horoscope.

The World Horoscope

The World Horoscope

Taurus is mostly a bystander in all this, although benefiting from it and positive to it. That&#;s odd for Taurus, who is normally happy to do a good work and able to complete it according to plan. It could even be frustrating, but the trine aspect (°) between Taurus and Capricorn indicates that Taurus is fine with it, and has no problem adapting.

It also means that Taurus will have success in big projects, especially if Taurus is involved but without a leading role in them.

Tantalizing Fantasies

The Taurus Zodiac sign also has a sextile aspect (60°) to Neptune in Pisces in the horoscope. It started in late and continues several more years to come. Its influence on Taurus is vague, so it applies mainly to those Taurus born with the sun in a clear sextile to the planet. So far, also in , that&#;s those born in April.

Neptune is the planet of dreams, fantasy and inspiration. It&#;s an important force in the arts and in what our imagination comes up with. In Pisces, it&#;s all about the meaning of life, questions about the beyond and what to believe in.

Taurus normally has both feet on the ground. So, fantasies about anything impalpable and surreal are not common in the Taurus mind. But still, Taurus finds these things intriguing, the way they are expressed &#; often just hinted &#; in the surroundings and among some other people.

It&#;s tantalizing. Some things emerging from the imagination of others are just as intriguing as they are far-fetched. Taurus is not quick to be a believer, but these perspectives do bring a flare to existence, sort of like fireworks for the mind.

Again, this is particularly true for Taurus born in April, and not so much for those born in May &#; yet. They will feel it more in a couple of years.

A Year with Potential for Taurus

Although is not the most eventful of years for Taurus, it opens up for several opportunities &#; some which Taurus is happy to snap, others that Taurus refuses out of principle. The start of the year, in particular, will be promising and satisfactory. And that start may very well lead to quite a fortunate year, depending on what opportunities are grabbed.

Taurus Full Horoscope for

Taurus, we have a new year ahead

and it's a better year than last year.

You of all signs have had quite a hard time.

You've had Saturn directly opposite you.

We call that an opposition

and that can cause problems in a relationship

where you really had to work with it

and try to find ways to fix it

and that's where you were hosting Saturn for two years.

Saturn left on December 23rd.

Now, I do have to tell you Saturn will be back

but only for 13 weeks this summer

from June 14th to September 17th.

I will tell you that if you were born

at the end of your sign around May 19th,

20th, 21st, somewhere in there,

you may feel Saturn's influence.

That's why I want you to be strong and robust

and eat right before you get to the summer.

When it comes to love, I have the very best news for you.

Jupiter, the giver of gifts and luck,

the planet that gives us more of anything we wish for,

is coming to your house of love

for the first time in 12 years

on August 11th and Jupiter will stay with you

almost 13 months.

That's until September

In that time, you will have an extraordinary chance

to meet your one true love.

If you're married, you may decide to have a baby

during that period

because that is the house of conception,

pregnancy and the care for children.

If you've had a bit of problems with conception,

that's the time to consult a fertility expert

and if you are living together

and kind of hope that you'll get married,

this would be the time also.

Astrology's about timing so try then.

You could have the best aspects in the world

but if you don't show the universe your intent

and try then nothing will happen

'cause astrology's not about predestination.

It's about opportunity and a door is opening for you

and you want to walk through it.

I want to point out a beautiful day

that I want you to put a big circle around on your calendar.

August 26th.

It's the luckiest day of the year,

when Jupiter will meet with the sun.

These two luminaries meet for lunch once a year

on your behalf

but they always pick

a different sign of the zodiac to meet in.

This year, they're meeting in Virgo

in your house of true love.

You have just hit the cosmic jackpot.

How lucky is that?

Everybody wants to be you, dear Taurus.

Be sure to do something special and romantic

at the end of August this year.

Now, if you have no one in your life,

you may wanna take a trip.

You may meet someone.

All your little angels will be out and circling around

with their little bows and arrows to help you.

If you want to get ahead in your career,

you need to be mobilized and ready

in the first quarter of the year.

This is going to be your most critical time.

You don't want same old, you want something new,

something new to tackle.

Take a look at the new moon on January 20th

and then again the new moon on February 18th.

New moons are extremely important

because they open a door of opportunity

and what's odd this year

is we're going to have two new moons in a row

in your house of honors, awards, achievement, fame.

That's when you want to be talking about a new job.

So the period from the end of January

through much of February actually and part of March

will be your most critical point in the year

to find new work.

So you really wanna jump on those new moons.

There will be a full moon in August

that could crystallize talks.

Sometimes, we try for a job

and you find wow, talks are continuing for months.

Well, the more important the job,

the longer the process takes.

So just let things take their natural course.

In terms of money though,

you have your best opportunity in November,

at the new moon in November.

One of the reasons you may be saving money this year

which I glean from looking at the position of Saturn

is that you may be getting ready

to rent your first apartment

or if you're a little bit older,

put down a down payment on a house or a condo

and this is your best year in 12

to start thinking along those lines.

Now, you will have until August 11th

to find your dream space.

Don't settle for anything less

than your most perfect apartment or house.

I see large rooms, I see sun, lots of sun

and actually large closets.

Your new space will probably also offer you a view

but Jupiter has a way of bringing this.

Don't settle.

You will find the right space for you to live

at a price you can afford.

When it comes to beauty,

the time around your birthday will be special.

Venus will enter Taurus from March 17th

through much of April

so you want to make your changes

when Venus is smiling on you.

There's one part of the year

I'd like you to go very low key in beauty,

actually in designing your apartment, whatever it is

because Venus will go retrograde

from July 25th to September 6th

so you don't want to change your look.

Don't have a radical change in hair color

or have a brand new haircut during Venus retrograde.

You may not wanna spend a lot of money on clothes

at that time.

Venus brings love and affection

and when she's retrograde, she rests.

You want a wide awake Venus

when you're doing anything involving love and beauty.

So it's just good to know, right?

She doesn't retrograde that often

so it's kind of good to know

that she's going retrograde this year.

If you wanna make more friends,

I think your wish will come true.

We have a very friendly eclipse March 20th.

I know a lot of people think eclipses are never good.

No, no, no, I'm telling you, this one's sweet

and I like the beginning of the year for parties

and for socializing, get out there,

go to a conference, join a club, maybe a professional club

or a social club where you can mix and mingle

but don't forget social media too.

There's so many different outlets

and I'm sure there's one that will become your favorite.

Get more active.

When I think of fun, I think of travel.

Maybe you're the same as I am.

I think you might have gone away for the holidays

and maybe even extended your stay a little bit in January.

That was a really good time to go anywhere you wanted to go

including overseas.

If you feel, oh, I'm back at work and that part's over,

well, you have another opportunity

around July 1st to the 31st and a bit into August

but August will start to bring news about your career

so I do want you to come home before that happens.

So I would say July is your time to go.

Pick something great and it doesn't even have to be far.

You'll have fun.

I can practically guarantee it.

Taurus, you have so much to look forward to in

especially in terms of love

and in finding the perfect space in which to live

so pour your champagne, toast yourself

and start the new year with an optimistic, happy smile.

This is Susan Miller saying goodbye for now.
