Diana's Monthly Taurus Forecast for April 2016
Until the 20th the Solar energies could manifest as a pull towards things going on behind the scenes or in your private life – perhaps to do with the past or perhaps it’s a work in progress. You’ll probably have to put aside personal desires and become more aware of another’s needs or requirements, even when you are not in the mood. Others may not fully realize how much you are dealing with as the Sun is in a karmic house during this phase. But this is no time to cling to ego, as, if you do, you may feel let down.
Until the 6th Mercury is working from deeper levels and your mind tends to become introspective and more open to emotional or subtle energies. You may be a little preoccupied, by things going on in the background of your life, and you could find yourself zoning out or just feeling mentally at 6’s and 7’s as things may be a little up-in-the-air. Zoning out isn’t necessarily a bad thing and, at this time, you can do your best thinking in a restful, nurturing environment or in a private bubble with others. Imagination and intuition are working well. Also a good time for healing, spiritual or imaginative activities, so, listen to your inner guidance, hold the vision of how you want it to be, and plan to move beyond what is now getting in the way of your happiness and wellbeing.
MEETING AND GREETING
From the 6th Mercury is in your sign putting you more in the stream of information exchange and mixing with others. A time to put those people skills to work as you outline intentions or ideas more clearly and accurately to others. There may be more paperwork or other things to get your head around and mental processes may be accelerated. Communications equipment, vehicles, travel or transport might also be on your mind. At times there may be so much coming at you that you feel a bit scattered so engineer quiet spaces for yourself whenever you can.
A CHERISHED HOPE WITHIN REACH
Until the 6th Venus warms group relationships and other associations. You will tend to feel supported by others who are inspiring, different, or have common interests, as you move forwards with something you have hoped for, maybe for a long time. Networking, group gatherings or team efforts benefit from Venus’s sociable, helpful mood. Anything related to technology or activity online may be interesting, materially beneficial and, in general facilitate positive experiences. As Venus also rules money and property, you may benefit materially through groups, friends or special associations.
FEED THE SOUL, HEAL THE BODY
From the 6th there may be less opportunity to share your feelings in a spontaneous way. You’ll tend to keep things to yourself and may be feeling uncertain about where you stand in a relationship, regarding finances or a property. You could be mulling over the past and finding emotions getting in the way of rational thinking. Others can be oblivious to what’s going on for you as you take a step back, touch base and, with Venus’s knack of finding the balance, you gently iron out any inner turbulence or physical imbalance. This long transit means you are likely to feel more supported by others within a closed circle or other special environment. It is likely you can benefit materially through others in these types of shared environments. A good idea would be to immerse yourself in nurturing pursuits which feed your soul whenever you can.
Mars is in the sector of your solar chart which clears the decks for new beginnings. So one manifestation may be a de-clutter, is in the pipe-line. Or maybe either letting go or regenerating an ailing or stale situation. Whether it’s a re-think, a de-tox or a Spring Clean, this Mars position means coming up against pre-existing conditions, behaviours or requirements which provoke an inner confrontation with your ethics or things shared with another. Then a shift, as emotions drive a change. You could be intensely aware of the feeling or needs of others at times and you may have to bite your tongue or be more confidential or shrewd.
Debts due or owed (moral or otherwise) may need a more decisive approach or maybe someone is being more assertive – even coercive – towards you. You’ll probably have to feel your way rather than ´think´ your way, and even though you are aware of others’ feelings , values or expectations, you want to stick up for yourself , and be true to your own values and inner nature. You are looking for a win/win solution but listening with your inner ear and seeing with your third eye.
You’ll tend not to want to put all your cards on the table with some people.
From the 20th begins a powerful time for you with the Sun in your sign. A good time for taking stock and reviewing the dance of life over the past year and thinking about the future. In general, the way should be clearer to improve things for yourself personally and definitely to be more ‘self‘ centred, doing whatever is most supportive of yourself physically, mentally and spiritually. Also to give more time and energy to aims and ambitions close to your heart and feel the empowerment that brings.
Saturn is now in your 8th house. The 8th house is a transition house which usually involves clearing the decks to make space for new life. This may involve joint property or financial interests, or your own bad habits. You’ll become more aware over this time frame of who/what is of value, and in the process, you may have to let go of an aspect of a previous perspective, set-up or contract so that life can become more healthy, happy or fulfilling. Sometimes ditching or modifying a prior arrangement in favour of one which is financially, emotionally or physically more comfortable can happen but it will be gradual and you may still have to live within the parameters of the previous set-up for a while. Or maybe there’s a removal of a certain resource or support system or lifestyle and you feel this as a lack. Either way you will slowly be transitioning into a fresh perspective which is closer to your true priorities.
Taureans born 4th -7th May or with 14-17 degrees rising, or, will feel this energy the most over this period.
Jupiter, planet of potential abundance and expansion will very positively influence your Sun sign until next September. This is a time when you may be appreciated more for yourself in a playful or romantic sense. At times it will encourage a more spontaneous, even self-indulgent, energy. There may be admiring glances coming your way and you may be in the mood to take a risk or a gamble. You may grow through access to creative activities where you can feel empowered and shine in your own unique way. Children, animals and leisure or entertainment activities will be emphasized.
Taureans born from 1st-6th May or with 12-16 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
