Overview for this Month: Taurus (All)

April 2014

April is a powerful month that tends to bring buried frustration, resentment, and needs to the surface with great force, and possibly in disruptive ways, dear Taurus. Tempers can flare at work or school, schedules are interrupted, and for some of you, nagging health issues can disrupt the flow of things. As well, there is a lot of stress and strain happening behind the scenes. Old problems can resurface, frustrations with people and situations that you've been tolerating can now seem unbearable, and neglected health matters might come to a head. Be more cautious and attentive, especially on the job. Your saving grace this month involves friends, teams, and groups - the keys to managing stress, and the providers of escape routes and release from daily pressures. The 10-11 and 17-20 bring wonderful social opportunities. As the month moves forward, you begin to feel more effective, independent, and courageous. First, the Sun enters Taurus on the 21st, and then Mercury follows on the 23rd, giving you more personal impact and a stronger voice. Stabilizing, supportive energy is with you on the 24-25. A Solar Eclipse occurs in your sign on the 29th, and your own needs and goals become priority. Many of you have been spending a lot of time tending to others' needs, wants, and expectations. You've recently been feeling a lot of pressure to prove yourself to people in your life, but the power begins to shift. Now is the time for taking care of yourself without apology. Dreams, goals, and projects that you've put on a shelf are renewed now and into May.

April 2014 Taurus Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
 

April 2014

 

Overview.

The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness

Until April 20th:

The Sun continues to shine its light on your solar twelfth house. This is the time to listen to your intuition, to take a break from the hectic pace of your life, and to reflect on what you have learned in the past year. You might naturally retreat a little and take more private time for yourself now. Your physical energy levels may not be up to par for the time being, and this is your body signalling you to take a break. This is not an ideal time for pushing forward with new personal projects and plans. It is better to finish up projects and tie up loose ends now.

From April 20th forward:

The Sun illuminates your first house now, bringing issues surrounding your personal identity, appearance, outward behavior, and self-expression to the forefront. This marks the peak of your physical solar cycle, and you are in the position to make an impression on others, and to assert your personal influence. Spontaneity of expression is what this transit is about. You are ready to put your past behind you and to start a new personal cycle. You have presence and you project confidence. Increased energy and a renewed feeling of confidence is with you now, so take advantage. It's a great month to do something entirely new and pioneering—to go solo in some area of your life. This particular season of the year smiles on your personal endeavors. This is a time when you more easily get in touch with a true sense of your identity and purpose. The most enterprising side of your nature surfaces, and it's time to seize opportunities. Existing problems in your life may be overcome now by bravery and a straightforward approach to your life. There's nothing wrong with a bit of self-centeredness during this cycle, but avoid taking it too far. It's not the best time for team work and other cooperative endeavors. The spotlight is on you and your ability to lead, so make it a good one! Take steps to improve how you come across to others. It's time to carve your own path in life.

Lunar Eclipse on April 15th

A general rule of thumb regarding eclipses is to avoid major decision-making in the week before and after an eclipse. This is because new information that could change our perspective often is revealed in the week after the eclipse. There is absolutely no need to suspend projects already in progress. Essentially, it's better to take in right now--to observe and get in touch with feelings.

This Lunar Eclipse stimulates your solar sixth house. Surprises surrounding work, working relationships, daily routines, or health issues are in store. Something that has been "in hiding" or brewing under the surface of things comes to light, or there is a significant fruition or culmination. Flaws come to light and demand a clean-up. This could manifest as, for example, a work project coming to an end or bearing fruit, a surprising announcement on the job, a circumstance that calls for you to support a co-worker, a flurry of activity prompted by the demands of work or for your services, a surprising health matter, and other such possibilities. You can use this surge of emotional energy to make positive changes to your routines. Do something to improve your work conditions if they are annoying you--even if it's a small act of kindness with a co-worker or bringing in something to brighten up your desk or office. Get going on your exercise or nutrition program that you've been toying with in your mind.

Solar Eclipse on April 29th

A general rule of thumb regarding eclipses is to avoid major decision-making in the week before and after an eclipse. This is because new information that could change our perspective often is revealed in the week after the eclipse. There is absolutely no need to suspend projects already in progress. Essentially, it's better to take in right now--to observe and get in touch with feelings.

The Solar Eclipse marks a new beginning for you. Letting go of the past is necessary in order to move forward. This eclipse occurs in your solar first house, suggesting a new approach to your personal life, the manner in which you come across to others, and the way you assert yourself. A focus on ways to improve or enhance your appearance and mannerisms may be part of the picture in the coming months, as well as a sense of renewal and reinvigoration with regards to how you assert your needs and express yourself to others. This is a phase when you have an increased awareness of your own needs. It's a very powerful time for you--a time to reinvent yourself in some personal way, such as with a new look or manner of expressing and presenting yourself. This is a personally busy time of year, when you feel energetic and enthusiastic. Think about how you present yourself to others, focus on changing personal habits in such a way as to improve your confidence in yourself, and concentrate on putting your best foot forward, as this is a time when you will get noticed and make a personal impression on others. However, factor in the importance of authenticity in your presentation of yourself. You do not have to, of course, reveal all of yourself to others, but the sign of Aries associated with the first house reminds us of the importance of acting on our impulses and believing in ourselves. This is a time when you can be brave and enjoy new experiences.

Venus this Month: Love, Romance, Social Life, Comfort

Until April 5th:

Venus continues to transit your solar tenth house. Relationships with authority figures, superiors, and with the public are in focus during this cycle. It's a strong period for diplomatic relations, although a negative expression of this position could be bending over backwards to please rather than positive, friendly relations. It's a time when being a team player reaps the most rewards, and you may be mixing business with pleasure now. This may be a time when you are especially enjoying your career or position and making the most of it.

From April 5th forward:

Venus graces your solar eleventh house now. Forming harmonious, warm social friendships, possibly related to group activities within a club, can figure now. You may meet someone through such group activities; consequently, your interests will be shared. Whether or not you do, the bottom line is that sharing interests with someone is what makes you happy during this cycle. Venus here enlivens your friendships and group associations with charm and grace. You are more peace-loving than usual and slightly detached on a personal level. If a romance were to begin during this time frame, it would be characterized by a strong feeling of camaraderie, but it could also be rather impersonal and perhaps lacking in depth and intimacy.

Mercury this Month: Communications, Learning, Connections, Transportation

Until April 7th:

Mercury continues to journey through your solar eleventh house. This is a time when conversations with friends and various networking activities are much appreciated and offer learning experiences. Your ideas just now are especially progressive and unconventional, as you are questioning the rules you typically live by and entertaining some wild ideas. Not all of these ideas are necessarily going to last or lead to new projects, but it's a time of dreaming up new possibilities and new possible solutions to problems. You are especially interested in spending time with people who are like-minded. Social interactions are more frequent, light, and fun during this cycle.

From April 7-23:

Your mind is focused on private matters and past issues while Mercury transits the twelfth house of your solar chart. This is a time when you are least likely to speak out of turn or to express yourself freely. You're searching behind the curtain, and examining the past for answers. This is a good time for research, quiet contemplation, and meditation; but do avoid getting dragged down by issues that have outgrown their worth and purpose. Examining the past in order to improve the future is certainly worthwhile, as long as you don't waste your energy on guilt. Creative endeavors could prosper now, particularly those that draw upon the emotions or that require creative visualization skills, such as poetry, art, acting, and other such activities. You are likely to require a certain amount of solitude in order to get your thoughts together or to be mentally productive. You are less likely to chat indiscriminately during this transit, and tend to be a little secretive or tight-lipped for the time being. This may be important, in fact, because this position of Mercury is sometimes associated with the uncovering of secrets, so discretion may be in order.

From April 23rd forward:

With Mercury in your solar first house, you are most inclined to speak up about matters that you previously were only mulling over. Your disposition is more intellectual than usual now, and self-expression comes easily. You are sharper than usual--more observant, and more inclined to "live in the head". Relationships with siblings, neighbors, classmates, and casual friends may become more prominent in your life now. It is likely that you will initiate discussions during this period, evaluate your appearance and the impact you have on those around you, and make contact with others rather than stay chained to any one place or activity. This is the time to be direct and to communicate your needs and interests. You are more inclined to talk about yourself and your personal past now. This may also be a restless time when it is difficult to turn the thinking process off when it would be better to relax! It is an especially fruitful time for any endeavor that requires dealing with words, ideas, and facts and figures. Your demeanor is more youthful, perhaps mischievous, light-hearted, and non-threatening so that others may be more inclined to turn to you for advice or pleasant conversation. Using the power of words to attract what you want or to further your interests works best for you now.

Mars this Month: Energy, Drive, Courage

Mars is retrograde from March 1-May 19

All Mars retrograde cycles particularly affect you in terms of your intuition and spiritual matters, because Mars rules these areas of your life. You may find that you are less able to rely on your intuition. Perhaps you're picking up the wrong cues or reading too much into situations. Whatever the case may be, for the time being, you may not feel that your intuition is serving you well. Keep an eye out for deceptiveness and falseness in others. It would be wise to be especially clear when it comes to communicating about your inner world now; or take this time to re-examine issues rather than communicating about them prematurely. Private affairs and solitary work might need to be put on the back burner, or you could show less enthusiasm for them.

Occurring in your solar sixth house this time, enthusiasm for your work or health regimes, or for work projects and daily routines, could wane perhaps due to setbacks or stalling. Work itself could seem to be less straightforward or satisfying. New initiatives with these matters may appear less exciting, or you could find that you are less confident about expressing yourself in these areas of life. For some, there can be much preoccupation with your health or work endeavors, and possibly frustration with daily routines. Watch for pent-up anger and passive-aggressiveness on the job. Refocus, backtracking, and review become necessary and recommended now. This Mars retrograde emphasizes practical and work matters. How you organize your time is in question now.

Overview Horoscope:

April is a powerful month that tends to bring buried frustration, resentment, and needs to the surface with great force, and possibly in disruptive ways, dear Taurus. Tempers can flare at work or school, schedules are interrupted, and for some of you, nagging health issues can disrupt the flow of things. As well, there is a lot of stress and strain happening behind the scenes.

April 2014

 

Overview.

The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness

All month:

The Sun travels through your twelfth house now, marking a time of retreat and regeneration. Think about the attachments you have--to things, people, and routines--and consider which ones are dragging you down. This is a time when competitive energies and the ego are on a bit of a break. It's not the time to push ahead with brand new projects. Rather, it's a time of reflection, dreaming, and recharging your batteries. Situations that have naturally outgrown their usefulness in your life can now be put behind you. Endings of natural cycles may be part of the picture at this time of year. Your energy is largely applied to personal and private affairs now. Your disposition is introspective. Rest and reflect, and prepare for a more outgoing cycle when the Sun moves into your first house.

April 2014 Taurus Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
 

April 2014

 

Overview.

The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness

Until April 9th:

The Sun continues to put a spotlight on your solar eleventh house. During this cycle, you are planting seeds for the future, dreaming up plans that you might begin to develop two months down the road, if they still seem viable then. You are more aware of the benefits of networking, and you might find some great ideas through others now. You might be working in a team now. You could be questioning some of the rules you have been living by and you could be ready to try something totally new. You are more attracted to that which is progressive or unconventional during this cycle.

From April 9th forward:

The Sun travels through your twelfth house now, marking a time of retreat and regeneration. Think about the attachments you have--to things, people, and routines--and consider which ones are dragging you down. This is a time when competitive energies and the ego are on a bit of a break.

Your energy is largely applied to personal and private affairs now. Your disposition is introspective. Rest and reflect, and prepare for a more outgoing cycle when the Sun moves into your first house.

Lunar Eclipse on April 15th

A general rule of thumb regarding eclipses is to avoid major decision-making in the week before and after an eclipse. This is because new information that could change our perspective often is revealed in the week after the eclipse. There is absolutely no need to suspend projects already in progress. Essentially, it's better to take in right now--to observe and get in touch with feelings.

This Lunar Eclipse stimulates your solar sixth house. Surprises surrounding work, working relationships, daily routines, or health issues are in store. Something that has been "in hiding" or brewing under the surface of things comes to light, or there is a significant fruition or culmination. Flaws come to light and demand a clean-up.

Essentially, it's better to take in right now--to observe and get in touch with feelings.

The Solar Eclipse marks a new beginning for you. Letting go of the past is necessary in order to move forward. This eclipse occurs in your solar twelfth house. This indicates a new approach to the ways you handle your inner world, the ways you compassionately serve others, and the manner in which you handle guilt. This is a period of review, letting go, and recharging your spiritual and, in effect, physical "batteries". Focus, now, is on fulfillment through service, empathy, and awareness of other's needs; but it can also be a time of withdrawal and some sort of retreat in a social sense, depending on your personal and natural predisposition. Some kind of soul-searching is in order, and the urge to find some level of emotional peace of mind will be apparent. These themes will be with you for the next six months.

Venus this Month: Love, Romance, Social Life, Comfort

Until April 24th:

Venus continues to transit your solar tenth house. Relationships with authority figures, superiors, and with the public are in focus during this cycle. It's a strong period for diplomatic relations, although a negative expression of this position could be bending over backwards to please rather than positive, friendly relations. It's a time when being a team player reaps the most rewards, and you may be mixing business with pleasure now. This may be a time when you are especially enjoying your career or position and making the most of it.

From April 24th:

Venus graces your solar eleventh house now. Forming harmonious, warm social friendships, possibly related to group activities within a club, can figure now. You may meet someone through such group activities; consequently, your interests will be shared. Whether or not you do, the bottom line is that sharing interests with someone is what makes you happy during this cycle.

If a romance were to begin during this time frame, it would be characterized by a strong feeling of camaraderie, but it could also be rather impersonal and perhaps lacking in depth and intimacy.

Mercury this Month: Communications, Learning, Connections, Transportation

From April 1-18:

Mercury is transiting your solar eleventh house. Your mind is bright, alert, and active during this cycle, and you have the ability to come up with unusual and inventive ideas. Sharing your thoughts with others is a prime interest. Others tend to particularly enjoy your conversations during this transit--you are willing to listen as well as add your own thoughts. As well, your ability to grasp unusual subject matter and to intuitively understand what others are trying to say win you some brownie points! You could also do a lot of thinking and musing about your own happiness and long-term goals.

From April 18th forward:

Your mind is focused on private matters and past issues while Mercury transits the twelfth house of your solar chart. This is a time when you are least likely to speak out of turn or to express yourself freely. You're searching behind the curtain, and examining the past for answers. This is a good time for research, quiet contemplation, and meditation; but do avoid getting dragged down by issues that have outgrown their worth and purpose.

You are likely to require a certain amount of solitude in order to get your thoughts together or to be mentally productive. You are less likely to chat indiscriminately during this transit, and tend to be a little secretive or tight-lipped for the time being. This may be important, in fact, because this position of Mercury is sometimes associated with the uncovering of secrets, so discretion may be in order.

Mars this Month: Energy, Drive, Courage

Mars is retrograde from March 1-May 19

All Mars retrograde cycles particularly affect you in terms of your intuition and spiritual matters, because Mars rules these areas of your life. You may find that you are less able to rely on your intuition. Perhaps you're picking up the wrong cues or reading too much into situations. Whatever the case may be, for the time being, you may not feel that your intuition is serving you well. Keep an eye out for deceptiveness and falseness in others. It would be wise to be especially clear when it comes to communicating about your inner world now; or take this time to re-examine issues rather than communicating about them prematurely. Private affairs and solitary work might need to be put on the back burner, or you could show less enthusiasm for them.

Occurring in your solar sixth house this time, enthusiasm for your work or health regimes, or for work projects and daily routines, could wane perhaps due to setbacks or stalling. Work itself could seem to be less straightforward or satisfying. New initiatives with these matters may appear less exciting, or you could find that you are less confident about expressing yourself in these areas of life. For some, there can be much preoccupation with your health or work endeavors, and possibly frustration with daily routines. Watch for pent-up anger and passive-aggressiveness on the job. Refocus, backtracking, and review become necessary and recommended now. This Mars retrograde emphasizes practical and work matters. How you organize your time is in question now.

Overview Horoscope:

April is a powerful month that tends to bring buried frustration, resentment, and needs to the surface with great force, and possibly in disruptive ways, dear Taurus. Tempers can flare at work or school, schedules are interrupted, and for some of you, nagging health issues can disrupt the flow of things. As well, there is a lot of stress and strain happening behind the scenes. Old problems can resurface, frustrations with people and situations that you've been tolerating can now seem unbearable, and neglected health matters might come to a head. Be more cautious and attentive, especially on the job. Your saving grace this month involves friends, teams, and groups - the keys to managing stress, and the providers of escape routes and release from daily pressures. The 10-11 and 17-20 bring wonderful social opportunities. As the month moves forward, you begin to feel more effective, independent, and courageous. First, the Sun enters Taurus on the 21st, and then Mercury follows on the 23rd, giving you more personal impact and a stronger voice. Stabilizing, supportive energy is with you on the 24-25. A Solar Eclipse occurs in your sign on the 29th, and your own needs and goals become priority. Many of you have been spending a lot of time tending to others' needs, wants, and expectations. You've recently been feeling a lot of pressure to prove yourself to people in your life, but the power begins to shift. Now is the time for taking care of yourself without apology. Dreams, goals, and projects that you've put on a shelf are renewed now and into May.
