Taurus 20 Apr - 20 May
YOUR YEAR AHEAD 2013
In your solar chart, Gemini is the area associated
with money, moveable wealth and possessions. With
Jupiter in Gemini until the end of June, this bodes well for
finances and money matters generally. The only risk appears
to be that you may have too many irons in the fire and that it may
be difficult to keep track of everything. As long as you can maintain
control of your cash flow this should be a favorable time for you financially.
The second half of 2013 sees Jupiter move into Cancer. This is the area of your solar chart associated with siblings, neighbors, short journeys, study and communications of all sorts. Therefore this would be a good time to try to improve communication with relatives, a good time for study and for communicating your ideas and opinions. You may also travel more for work and pleasure and you may find opportunities on your doorstep, in your local area.
Pluto's presence in Capricorn throughout 2013 and beyond should prove favorable for Taurus Sun signs. The sign Capricorn is in harmonious alignment with the sign of Taurus. Both signs share the same element, they are earth signs and considered feminine, receptive signs. Along with Virgo, they make up the earth triplicity. Earth signs are associated with the tangible, practical things of this world, the rhythms of nature, life and also the business cycle. Money, work and surviving and prospering in the material world are earth stuff with which the earth signs are usually more comfortable and adept. Pluto is slowly making its way through Capricorn and as it does it slowly transforms those areas of the horoscope with which it makes aspects. Some of the aspects it makes are stressful while some, like the one it makes to Taurus, are harmonious. Those Taureans born at the end of April and in early Mays have already had, and are having, this big life change whereas those born later in May have this to look forward to over the next few years. Therefore be open to making major life changes, with new priorities and new opportunities to get wealthier, healthier happier and to shine. Do not resist, go with the flow and l let it take you to a new place, physically or metaphorically.
The South Node of the Moon (also known as the Dragon's Tail) travels through Taurus, your Sun sign this year while the North Node of the Moon (also known as the Dragon's Head) travels through your opposite sign of Scorpio. Sober Saturn, the testing, taskmaster of the zodiac is also in your opposite sign of Scorpio in 2013 and 2014, whereas the South Node will move out of Taurus and into Aries early in 2014. This a potentially complicated combination. With the South Node in your sign you need to make sure you are not your own worste enemy since bad habits, addictions and personal weaknesses may tempt you to stay in your comfort zone or even regress backwards. This is in contrast to the North Node in Scorpio which is pointing the way forward, out of your comfort zone, away from material considerations and into emotionally intense encounters with life.
With the South Node in your Sun sign and the North Node in the sign opposite, this is not the time to go it alone, this is a time to reach out to others to cooperate and compromise and to let others set the agenda and take the initiative. You may find that by joining with others you can achieve more then by trying to go it alone. Saturn on the other hand suggest that you may need to have a serious spring clean where relationships are concerned. The combination of both Saturn and the North Node of the Moon in Scorpio, the relationships zone of your solar chart, also suggests a major relationship, commercial, emotional or romantic could well be on the cards. Those relationships that you do have that are contributing to your life should be encouraged and strengthened, whereas those that don't may need to be terminated.
