Terrific Taureans you are well over due for a good year! This could be it as all the ingredients are coming to you for success in 2018! You have a lot going on so expect the unexpected this year with Uranus moving into your 1st house 15th May, you’ll be receiving inspiration from on high like nobody’s business. The 1st house is all about the self and like lightning, Uranus will strike you in the middle of the night with some weird and wacky ideas about how you can improve your sense of self.
You will be more prepared to act on your heart felt desires
You’ll become keenly aware of your inner most heartfelt desires and you will be prepared to act on them. Your intuition is likely to increase as a special spiritual gift is bestowed upon you. You’ll have amazing flashes of brilliance and finally all the pieces of the jigsaw puzzle of life will slot into place for you. Instead of just getting on and dealing with the practical aspects of life, you’ll go deeper into yourself searching for the truth of your authenticity. The next 7 years will enable a deepening relationship with the unseen dimensions of life, something you haven’t always been inclined to do. This will be like a brand new world to you. You’re becoming more Spiritual with a capital S! Congratulations terrific Taurus!
Uranus will spend around 7 years in your 1st house overturning your identity and revealing to you, who you really are. This next 7 years will be a positively transformative time in your life starting mid May. If you’re an early Taurean (i.e. born more towards the beginning of the sign in April), Uranian effects will be even more powerful.
Time to throw out the old and bring in the new!
You will be seeking to throw out the old and bring in the new. Your comprehension of your place in the world will increase and others, particularly your family will notice the new and deeper you. You finally now understand the deeper nuances of Spirituality, something you couldn’t always grasp in the past because your energy was more focused on the practical side of life. This newfound wisdom and knowledge will assist you in all areas of your life – relationships, business, career and self development.
Mercury retrograde causes miscommunications for all astrological signs and sometimes in a major way, playing havoc with relationships, business, legal issues and career. Be careful starting projects when Mercury is retrograde as things can get easily muddled up and you might have to go back again and redo things you thought had already been done. Remember, if in doubt – don’t! Misunderstandings and presentations go skew-iff along with your credibility if you’re not careful during this time.
During 2018 Mercury goes retrograde 3 times:
- 22nd March to 15th April
- 26th July until 19th August
- 16th November until 6th December
Coming out of retrograde Mercury is moving forwards improving communications and life becomes much clearer again. There is also a shadow period of approximately 5-7 days on either side of the dates above when Mercury is increasing or decreasing in intensity. During the shadow time, the effects of Mercury retrograde are still there but not as intense.
Your 2018 horoscope indicates that Jupiter will be in your opposite sign of Scorpio from the beginning of the year until October. Jupiter will bring you expansion in business through the agency of others. There will be increased happiness in partnerships (business and personal) as you watch your partners succeed which in turn indirectly benefits you. Remember, your partners (business and personal) and those close to you, are just reflections of your own inner self so bask in their happiness. Jupiter in the 8th house might also indicate an increase through other people’s money, a tax return or some type of legacy, especially in November.
Jupiter is in the watery sign of Scorpio with Mars in the 7th House. You might be feeling increasingly passionate about love and marriage during 2018 and this could involve someone connected to a foreign land. However, Jupiter does turn retrograde 9th March until 11th July, so there might be issues such as delays in relationships during this time. After 11th July, Jupiter moves forward again and any problems should be resolved or at least lessened.
Keep your feet on the ground
With Neptune in Pisces and your 11th house of career, money and hopes and wishes, you will be feeling more idealistic than usual and attract people to you unlike your normal friends. You may be feeling more compassionate and charitable than usual but do be careful you are not taken in by some of these new people. Gullibility is one of the downsides of Neptune and may temporarily overwhelm your practicality if you’re not careful. At all times keep you feet on the ground and don’t be tempted to go off into airy-fairy land. You might just find some people are being dishonest with you, but the solution is to remain grounded by walking and spending time in nature. You could even spend more time with a dog (who has 4 feet on the ground) to bring you back down to Earth.
In 2018, you will have Pluto in Capricorn in the 9th house. This house is all about education, travel, law, luck, the higher mind and expansion in life generally. Pluto here will shake things up a bit so you gain wisdom through experience. You might study, have contact with foreign places/people and come up with a new philosophical view of life. Sometimes, it could be a bumpy ride, so take extra precautions when travelling. In the end it will work out to your benefit and you will gain a lot more than any perceived losses.
Mars stays in the 9th house until mid September, providing ambition and purpose so you can expand your mind further. Pluto and Saturn here ensure you expand carefully and thoroughly. You might have some legal issues to deal with as Pluto works inexorably through the 9th house, but these are likely to go in your favour at the end. Your new interest in spirituality may manifest as an interest in religion due to your normal conservative viewpoint. This Plutonian energy is preparing you for something greater later on down the track of your life, most probably in your career. Get the knowledge you need now so you can express it to the general public in your own inimitable way terrific Taurus!
This is the year to expand your mind and get the best out of you!
Your 2018 horoscope also reveals you will have Saturn in Sagittarius also in the 9th house for the entire year. So travel and study are again featured strongly. Saturn is the planet of work and is often a hard taskmaster, pushing you hard to further yourself. Sometimes, you will feel the burden of her upon your practical shoulders, but this is to strengthen you and get the best out of you. The rewards will come in the end, so know it’s soooo very worth it! This time is all about expanding your mind….the world is a big place and it’s time you showed up everywhere in all your Taurean glory!
Foreign travels, living abroad, academia, teaching and international business could be calling you. You might try living like a digital nomad for a time in various countries. Whatever you do, make sure your passport is up to date as your bags could be packed at a moment’s notice. The energy for overseas travel is very strong and you could even have a global audience just waiting for you! Just thank Pluto and Saturn for your personal transformation. You could be a global citizen as you work, study and visit religious temples in some far flung land. Or choose to stay home and go with some of these influences rather than all of them, depending on your circumstances. You decide.
You may also be benefitted by others in powerful positions who want to help you in some way. They want you to succeed and they will help you get where you want to go thanks again Pluto!
Saturn does turn retrograde from April 18, going direct after 6th September, so some of the energy becomes quieter or appears to go backwards during this time period. You might retrace your steps or revisit the past in some way e.g. travel back home for a spell. After September, Saturn moves forward and you are again moving full steam towards your ambitions.
Your ruling planet
Terrific Taureans, your ruling planet is Venus and you have a keen appreciation of beauty and the physical aspects of love. Venus will be going backwards (known as going retrograde) October to mid November so this might be a bit of a bumpy ride in relationships and later in your career. You might just not feel like your regular self, so take it easy during this time. After mid November your ruler Venus is going forward again (known as direct) and you’ll feel on top of things again.
Horoscope Summary for 2018
Terrific Taureans you have a very busy and exciting year ahead with many opportunities in many areas of your life. Grab every opportunity with both hands that comes your way and just use a little bit of practicality if you’re feeling a bit spacey and you’re tempted to overdo splashing the cash to friends and family. There are lots of really good influences to help you along your life journey. You could really turn your life down new paths in 2018, all of which will be for the better. Well done terrific Taurus!
