On Tuesday April 19, 2016, the Sun moves into stubborn and determined Taurus. It has the Bull as its Astrology symbol, however, since it is ruled by the lovely, romantic planet Venus, this sign has several other dimensions. It can be stuck and resistant to change, but also, a sensual lover of beauty, good food and luxury. While appreciating all the comforts, the second sign of the Zodiac also wants us to be financially secure at all times.
For the next few weeks, regardless of Sun sign, we can all tap into those Taurean traits of strength and endurance so that we solidify and complete the projects started during the high energy of the Aries Sun. Watch out for a tendency to be overcautious – don’t miss an opportunity out of fear. Security is attractive, especially in this financial climate, but, sometimes we have to take a second look to see the advantage.
Taurus luxe will be sweetened by visiting Venus , 4/30 – 5/24 and financial situations can be muddled by a Mercury transit, which began on 4/6, going Retrograde, 4/28 – 5/23 (clever, Mercury remains in Taurus until 6/23/16). If you must negotiate and sign contracts, read everything twice. Don’t rush.
With a Taurus Sun, loved ones are treated to poetry, music and gourmet meals, while getting a lecture on the advantages of saving money – nice mix.
Taurus: *Gemstone: Rose Quartz * Power color: Soft rose-pink* Body Part: Neck

**As always, those most affected have the Sun and/or Rising sign in Taurus, but the rest of us will still feel the stable influences somewhere in our lives depending upon where the Earth sign appears in the birth chart.
