Like the tallest tree I bend, not break My strength is to give before I take With my powerful mind, I keep my ground As the Universe provides me blessings abound

Unless you camped out on a desert island for 2018, I’m fairly certain you knew something big was stirring in the planets for you, Taurus. On March 6th, Uranus – the planet of enlightenment, and rebellion enters your sign. Here, they will stay until 2026 – a Chariot fuelled 7 years of transformative, electric energy. This could be challenging for the stubborn and more ego-driven parts of your personality, but using your great capacity to connect with the Earth, magic will happen. Saturn’s journey through Capricorn for the next 3 years adds to this element of change – and could spell international travel, to assist you with your learning. Be open to experience, and try to put the feelings that are stirring within into your outer world. This could mean writing them down, prayer, or just a good cry with a good friend. Change doesn’t have to be scary, stable Taurus, set your intentions on the New Moon in your sign on May 4th, and know that you can still take things at your own pace. Spring is a powerful time for you, and with Saturn in retrograde, feel free to stop and smell the roses. This is a wonderful time to assess what you need, and what you can let go of. Additionally, Mercury and Venus will join Uranus in your sign on May 6th and 15th (transformative and victorious 6 energy here!!) highlighting your powers of communication and love. Let yourself be the hopeless romantic you really are, and leave the details to Venus. As your ruler, her retrograde of 2018 impacted you greatly, most likely causing deep wounds to resurface. In 2019 she has much more fun, starting the year out in truth-seeking Sagittarius and finishing off in wild Aquarius. Pay attention to her transits when you are feeling low – and shower yourself in self-love. The King of Swords energy is key this year, as you harness the power of your mind during these potentially turbulent times. Calming your mind may seem like an easy task when things are going well – the trick lies in using that ability when your inner Bull starts to rage. Be wise with your words, take your time before sending off any important emails or texts. If you take the time to listen to your Inner Self, you will be able to speak openly from your heart, and you can make a positive impact on those around you. This ripple effect will fuel your soul and give you a huge energy boost! The Full Moon and Partial Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn on July 16th will help you connect to the Earth again, if spring and early summer start to move a little too fast for your liking. The Standing People Card is reminding you that you have your family tree standing behind you, and the Earth Mother below you, ready to nourish and help you. Pay attention to the messages the natural world is sending. Give as freely as the trees do, in order to receive and blossom. Aho!
