Apr - 20 May
Your new yearly cycle, roughly from
birthday month to birthday month, gets
underway when the Sun enters Taurus,
your Sun sign around 20 April. With the Sun
in Taurus, this is a time to step forward with
your dreams and schemes, to put yourself, your
talents and your ideas in the shop window and show
the world wha you can do. Until then, be prepared to get some R and R, to recharge your batteries and to tie-up lose ends and clear the decks in readiness for the new impetus and opportunities on the way.
Although you should make the most of opportunities to put your feet up, this is unlikely to be a quiet time with Mercury in Taurus, until it retrogrades back into Aries on 21 April, and Mars also in Taurus until it enters Gemini, also on 21 April. With Mercury retrograde from 10 April you need to be careful with what you say and how you say it and if in doubt, keep quiet.
Resist the temptation to cut corners or be economical with the truth and remember to read the small print. With Mars in Taurus, you could find yourself on the top of other people’s most wanted list and so you be prepared to take a stand against those who appear to want to get their hands on your assets, romantically or otherwise.
