Overview for this Month: Taurus (All)

October 2013

Work is certainly in strong focus this month, dear Taurus, but you'll also get the chance to have some fun, especially from the 15th forward, when Mars enlivens and animates your sector of entertainment, romance, and creativity. After the long hours, you can find some time to play. Getting organized on the home front is a big job, but ultimately satisfying, up until mid-month. Saturn has been bringing stability, increased responsibilities, and possibly some stark reality checks to your love life, but this month, you can realize some of the benefits of your connections. For one, you're expanding your horizons, and for another, you're making fresh connections with others. A new or renewed commitment may be made around the 8th, although there may be some refinements to make, and possibly some regrets to nurse, towards the end of the month. Avoid over-committing at this time. Relationships intensify from the 7th forward. You may commit to helping a loved one either financially or emotionally, but watch for false feeding of someone's fantasies around the 9-10. As well, be careful that you don't overspend or lend at this time. Emotions run high around the 18-19, but be careful if you need to keep something under wraps - things can have a way of coming to light at this time, possibly putting you in an awkward position. The 25th brings renewed energy to a partnership and/or a friendship. It's important to nurture a relationship with faith, fun, and spirit.

Taurus (Born April 21 to 30) and Taurus Ascendant from 0 to 10 degrees Taurus:

October 2013 Taurus Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
 

October 2013

 

Overview.

The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness

Until October 23rd:

The Sun puts a spotlight on your solar sixth house. This is a busy period that finds you tending to many different details of your daily existence--your work, various projects, organization around the home and office, your daily routines, and health matters. Your ego may be especially tied up in the work you do, so that you are proud and more creative than usual in your job. You may be in the position to take charge in your work, or to take charge of your health and diet. Sometimes this cycle relates to increased activities involving pets. You seek to perfect your skills or methods now, and you focus on the parts that make up the whole now in order to improve your daily life. As a result, you can be more critical than usual, but this process is necessary for you to sort out what works for you and what doesn't.

From October 23rd forward:

The Sun illuminates your seventh house. At this time of year, you have a greater need than usual to be with a partner. Bouncing ideas off someone helps you to better understand yourself. A partner provides a mirror for your own self-discovery. Now is the time to realize your own potential through a significant other. During this cycle, you focus on balancing your personal interests and objectives with your social life, or with those of a partner. The emphasis is on "us" rather than "me". You need the energies, companionship, and support of other people, and they may also seek out your support and companionship. It's important to include others rather than to go solo for the time being. However, bending too much to the will of another is not advised either. Social interactions of a personal, one-on-one kind are emphasized. Circumstances are such that your diplomacy skills are required. Your popularity is increasing, and is reinforced by your own ability to cooperate and harmonize. Your ego and pride are tied up in how you relate to others now. This may be an especially busy time for people who consult or work with clients one-on-one.

Eclipse

A Lunar Eclipse Occurs on October 18th:

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 twelfth house. Surprises surrounding the compassionate care and attention you give others, as well as the work and service you render, may be 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. Your sectors of self-undoing, privacy, and dreams is involved. This could manifest, for example, as a situation that tests your faith and compassion, a culmination or fruition of a service you render, an event that calls on your urge for privacy and reflection, and other such possibilities. Finding a balance between practical concerns and spiritual or non-material matters is what this Lunar Eclipse is about for you.

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

Until October 7th:Venus continues her trek through your partnership sector. Meaningful and harmonious relationships--both social and romantic--define you during this cycle, affecting your mind, body, and soul. Financial or social success may come to or through your marriage partner at this time. Special attention to and from a partner is in focus, and flattery works to your advantage! Give to a partner exactly what you would like to receive just now. It's not about you right now--it's about someone else close. Smoothing out your close personal relationships is what makes you happy during this cycle. You have a greater need than usual for contact and exchange with an intimate partner. If single, you are more willing than normal to enter into a committed relationship. In general, you are adaptable when it comes to your affections.

From October 7th forward:

Venus graces your solar eighth house now. During this cycle, a financial boost is possible, or you may gain financially through your partner. A deep and intimate connection made now could be revitalizing and even healing. You are more inclined to want to smooth over differences in a partnership concerning the sharing of power, intimacy matters, finances, and other emotionally-charged topics. Intimate relationships are intensified now. Either you or your partner want a deeper union.

Mercury this Month: Communications, Learning, Connections, Transportation

Mercury is retrograde from October 21st to November 10th:

All Mercury retrograde cycles particularly affect you in terms of communications with lovers or children, and regarding financial affairs, because Mercury rules these areas of your life. Your judgment with regards to personal finances (Gemini-ruled for you) as well as romantic partners and creative endeavors may not be up to par just now, so do avoid "signing on the dotted line". Speculation is not advised during this cycle.

Occurring in your solar seventh house this time, extra care should be exercised when it comes to negotiations and one-on-one communications. Be as non-judgmental as you can with a partner. There may be the need to revisit old issues in a partnership, or there could be some communication problems with a partner. An ex-partner may resurface during this cycle. Misunderstandings with your partner now can do some damage if you (or your partner) focus on the choice of words instead of the meanings behind the words. If you need to talk through problems, try not to over-react to what your partner has to say. Mixed messages coming from a partner, or a disappointment, could occur now. You may not be as adept at mediating disputes for the time being, but it's a good cycle in which to reflect upon your negotiation skills with the goal of improving them. Re-thinking a partnership arrangement is possible now, but you should avoid jumping to any premature decisions. It would be wise to be especially clear when it comes to communicating with partners; or take this time to re-examine issues rather than communicating about them prematurely.

Mars this Month: Energy, Drive, Courage

Until October 15th:

Mars continues to activate your solar fourth house. More energy and enthusiasm is brought to your home life, but there can also be a tendency to stir up trouble if you are not careful to channel any excess energy into constructive and productive pursuits around the home. You desire to take the lead, but you should do so in a respectful way so as not to get anyone's goat.

From October 15th forward:

Mars animates and energizes your solar fifth house. This is a very self-expressive time when you have lots of energy, but not necessarily self-discipline to match. You have more energy at your disposal to express yourself creatively, through activities with children, romantic activities, hobbies, or sports. Your love life may step up a notch, and this could be an especially passionate time. You tend to put more energy into play and pleasure! Be careful not to burn the candle at both ends. Also, watch out for a tendency to want to gamble. You are more playful than usual, and especially magnetic. You have a likeably competitive, more energetic, and pleasingly assertive temperament during this transit. However, in some cases, you may be coming on too strong or aggressively, or meeting with aggressiveness in romantic relationships.

Overview Horoscope:

Work is certainly in strong focus this month, dear Taurus, but you'll also get the chance to have some fun, especially from the 15th forward, when Mars enlivens and animates your sector of entertainment, romance, and creativity. After the long hours, you can find some time to play. Getting organized on the home front is a big job, but ultimately satisfying, up until mid-month.

Avoid over-committing at this time. Relationships intensify from the 7th forward. You may commit to helping a loved one either financially or emotionally, but watch for false feeding of someone's fantasies around the 9-10.

The 25th brings renewed energy to a partnership and/or a friendship. It's important to nurture a relationship with faith, fun, and spirit.

October 2013 Taurus Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
 

October 2013

 

Overview.

The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness

All month: The Sun illuminates your solar sixth house. During this cycle, you take more pride in the work you do and in your health routines than any other time of the year. You are sorting through the experiences of the last several months, separating the worthwhile from the worthless. This is a good time to build your skills, to get organized, and to attend to your health and wellbeing. It's a great time to make improvements to your regular routines. Your self-esteem and your ego are tied up in the work you do and in the services you give. Details are more important to you now. It's time to bring order to your life by focusing on the little things that make up the whole. This cycle presents an opportunity to get rid of what doesn't work in your life, while also discovering what does. You could seek distinction and strive towards perfection in your work. Efficiency should be your goal now. Your physical health, as well as the relationship between your body and your mind, are in focus.
