Taurus 20th April - 20th May
YOUR YEARLY HOROSCOPE 2019
If you’ve been feeling a growing desire for
change brewing then it may be time to get
ready, to travel lighter and loosen some of the
ties that bind. The changes ahead are less likely to prove
disruptive if you don’t have the freedom, independence, time or
space in your life for the new, the unexpected and even the strange. This is a time to connect with new, and possibly unusual individuals, groups and interests. You may discover or rediscover abilities which, due to circumstance, are brought to the surface one more. If so, perhaps it is time to use them. Naturally, a lot will depend on your age and personal circumstances. Nevertheless, this is a time to reawaken latent gifts and potential and pursue new avenues for you to express yourself and your talents. Since you may find it easier to get what you want from the universe now, be careful what you wish for. Be prepared to engage others in deep discussions and don’t allow your natural scepticism to prevent you from being open to new people, ideas and perspectives on the spiritual and philosophical side of life, love and the universe.
Jupiter's influence in 2019
Jupiter will be in Sagittarius until December when it moves into Capricorn. Since Sagittarius is the area of your solar chart associated with the resources of others, you may find it easier to get help and support from others, emotional, practical and financial, to help you achieve your goals in 2019. You could receive a windfall or benefit indirectly through others. This would therefore be a good time to do some cosmic ordering and ask the universe for those things you sincerely need. Since it might be easier to get hold of cash, credit and others resources, be careful not to overextend yourself or ask for too much or make promises you can’t keep. This placement of Jupiter can also ease you through major periods of emotional change and transformation. It is also a good time to explore life’s deep mysteries, the occult and the transcendental. You may have some strange, spooky or synchronistic experiences of an essentially positive nature that make you seriously consider changing your perspective on the meaning of life and what comes next.
Saturn's influence in 2019
Saturn will be in Capricorn, more or less, until the end of 2020. Capricorn is the zone of your solar chart associated with study, philosophy, metaphysics, travel and foreign people and cultures. Saturn’s presence in Capricorn is favourable for Taurus since the sign Taurus is in harmonious alignment with the sign of Capricorn. This is a constructive influence and bodes well for more serious educational, training, metaphysical and cultural pursuits that support your attempts to establish yourself in the world. Travel taken for career, educational and vocational reasons is also well-starred. This would be a good time to make progress in your studies, philosophical interests and to focus on developing your overseas connections, intellectual and spiritual interests.
The Nodes of the Moon's influence in 2019
The Moon’s Nodes, the North Node of the Moon and the South Node of the Moon, are always opposite one another, taking approximately 18 years to travel the twelve sings of the zodiac, spending about 18 months in each zodiac sign. Throughout 2019, the North Node will be in Cancer and the South Node in the sign opposite Cancer, Capricorn. The North Node is orientated towards the future and points to an area to embrace, where greater opportunities to develop our potential awaits us. The South Node is associated with the past, where we are coming from and is considered a place of release. The Cancer Capricorn axis of your solar chart is associated with travel, philosophical, metaphysical and educational matters. The presence of the South Node in Capricorn suggests you already have a good grasp of what you need to know to do your thing. And so, with the North Node in your zone of day-to-day travel and communication, this is the time to make the most of opportunities to express your ideas, to practice what you preach and apply your spiritual and philosophical values to your daily life and interactions with those close to home.
Uranus's influence in 2019
Uranus takes about 84 years to travel the 12 signs of the zodiac, spending approximately 7 years in each sign. Uranus is associated with change and upheaval, often sudden and unexpected. For some of us, Uranus can represent a wake-up call, waking us up from our narrow view of things and bringing with it a new perspective, new opportunities and new people. Slow moving, like Neptune and Pluto, Uranus represents a background influence until it triggers sensitive points in our horoscope. From the spring of 2019 Uranus will move out of Aries and into Taurus, not returning to Aries for another 80 years or so. The change Uranus brings is often unexpected and sudden even though the change may have been building up for some time. Uranus can bring the urge to be liberated in some way, to be free from certain obligations, restrictions and limitations, to be more in touch with our core, most true, authentic self. Although the change Uranus heralds can at first seem disruptive, it can correspond with an urge to discover, rediscover or reawaken certain personal or vocational aspirations or even head off in a new direction. The influence of Uranus can correspond with a new sense of identity as you identify with those things that are most meaningful to you. This is a time to be prepared to pursue those things and activities that are more in keeping with who you truly are and which move your heart and touch your soul. Those Taureans born in April will feel the influence of Uranus most personally in 2019, those born in May will meet Uranus in the not too distant future.
Neptune's influence in 2019
Slow moving, taking 165 years to travel the 12 signs of the zodiac, like Uranus and Pluto, Neptune is referred to as a transcendental, transpersonal or outer planet. The outer planets movements correspond with social, political and cultural changes that shape and colour the course of history. We encounter these outer planets in a personal way when they trigger or touch sensitive points in our horoscopes. Neptune is about halfway through its transit of Pisces where it will be until Neptune enters Aries around 2025. As such, Neptune’s general significance for you hasn’t changed and wont until 2025. Nevertheless, Pisces is the area of your solar chart associated with your friends and social circle and as long as you put your natural scepticism aside, keep an open mind and your wits about you; you’re likely to benefit from allowing Neptunian individuals, energy and ideas into your life. Therefore, make the most of opportunities to mingle with like-minded individuals who, for example, may follow a mystical or spiritual path or share your concern for nature, the earth and humanity while promoting a vision of the transcendental unity of all things.
Pluto's influence in 2019
As with the presence of Saturn in Capricorn discussed above, Pluto’s presence in Capricorn, is favourable for Taurus since Capricorn is in harmonious alignment with Taurus and so, if you’re prepared to swim with, rather than against, the inevitable flow of time, necessity and regeneration, you’re likely to gain tremendously from Pluto’s influence. Pluto travels very slowly, taking approximately 248 years to travel the 12 signs of the zodiac. As with Uranus, Pluto is associated with change. However, Pluto and Uranus are not the same. Pluto affects us all to varying degrees at varying times in our lives. Pluto has a cleansing influence, clearing away that which has served its purpose or role in our lives and needs to make way for new life, growth and new experiences. Change is an inevitable part of life and the more difficult or stressful, the more we try to hold on or resist. Pluto can give us an opportunity to discover, or rediscover, hidden talents and resources within us, talents which may now demand a stage or a place in our lives to be expressed. Pluto can be the key to making the changes ahead that work in our favour. Pluto is in Capricorn; the area of your solar chart associated with far away people and places, travel, education, philosophical, religious and transcendental matters. Therefore, the key to your transformation may involve some kind of journey, to explore the unknown or foreign, cultures, ideas and people. This could involve travel or contact with foreigners but this could also be a psychological and intellectual journey through a course of study. Capricorn, like Taurus, your Sun sign, is an earth sign and so for whatever change or transformation Pluto may offer, to grab your interests and to last, it will need to have practical and tangible benefits in your life.
