Oct - 21 Nov
On April 1, Mars, your traditional planetary
ruler enters your opposite sign of Taurus,
where Mars will remain until Mars enters Gemini
on May 12. Taurus is the area of your solar chart
associated with your dealings with others, professional,
personal, emotional and romantic. Seeing as it is Mars,
which is going all the way over to the opposite side of your solar
chart, it suggests that you will be going out of your way, whether by
accident, design or simply because others appear to be holding all the cards and keys to what you want. Venus will be in Taurus until April 12, when Venus enters Gemini. Mercury will enter Taurus on April 15, where it will stay until May 1 and the Sun will be in Taurus from April 20 - May 21 when the Sun enters Gemini. As you can see, there is a strong emphasis on Taurus for the next month or so. Therefore, with such a strong emphasis on your relationships and interactions with others over the next month or so, you need to be prepared to compromise, cooperate and avoid trying to do everything yourself, forcing through your agenda, or if all else fails, going it alone.
This is not the time for issuing demands, orders or ultimatums. In fact, attempts to force through your agenda likely to prove counterproductive, and backfire. Scorpios by nature, even the mild-mannered ones, are not the kind of people you can push around. That’s not to say anyone will be pushing you around, although one or two foolish individuals may try, the key point here is that while it appears necessary for you to dance to another’s tune for a little while longer, it’s important not to let resentment, anger or the impatience you may be feeling build up since this is only likely to prove counterproductive in the long run. Let’s be clear, we are not suggesting you have a difficult month ahead. On the contrary, if you’re prepared to play ball and let others sit in the driving seat, things could very well work out in your favor. You can still get from A to B but perhaps may need to take a different route. More likely, however, you may end up in a different destination and perhaps, that may turn out to be a better place to be. The emphasis on others this month should prove good for relationships, for getting up close and personal and for joint personal, professional and commercial dealings and opportunities. It may help to think that now would be a good time to accept a smaller part in a bigger production.
There is another significant astrological event this month and if it is the lunar eclipse in Libra on April 4. Libra is one of the more complex areas of your solar chart, and the lunar eclipse in Libra contrasts with a very strong emphasis on the sign of Aries this month. The emphasis on Aries suggests you may have your work cut out, busy with day-to-day chores, tasks and the daily grind. Nevertheless, since the North Node of the Moon is in Libra and this month’s full Moon falls on the North Node, making the full Moon an eclipse, a super full Moon, then this suggests that perhaps it may be time for you to take time out and time away from all your pressing commitments and demands however never-ending they may seem. It would be good to take time out, to retreat, to rest and get some R&R but also to reflect. It also seems important that you don’t feel up your time, and diary with things to do. You need to create space in your life for fate, in the disguise of circumstance, to intervene and knowledge you in a certain direction. The emphasis on Aries also warns that if you push yourself too hard for too long, then you may end up blowing a fuse and being forced to step back, to take time out and to have some enforced rest.
