Taurus is a gentle soul who loves to have his/her own way, to run life as he sees fit with no questions asked.
Although this fixed sign is extremely stubborn and determined it is also responsible and disciplined when it comes to family and money.
A Taurus tends to be involved with the mother, either in a love or hate relationship. Either way, they are often consumed with nurturing the family or animals or an entire community.
A Taurus needs to take care of people and things. This makes them happy, along with making money and living high.
The key words for Taurus is “I have” because of their need to collect and keep material possessions.
They feel they can always find a use for everything they own. So Taurus is not known for giving up anything easily. They enjoy jewelry, clothing or just about anything that indicates material wealth.

We are now entering into the calm before the next eclipse. This time on May 9 there will be a solar eclipse in Taurus during the time of the new moon. This means once again the fixed signs of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius will feel the upcoming change in direction. The change is required to make you feel like a total person. The fact that Mars is in Taurus will force fixed signs to notice the fact that life is changing for them.
Aries (March 21 to April 20) You could be slowly turning toward a calmer life, one without chaos. After all, Mars the planet of action and reaction is now in Taurus leaving Aries alone. You can look for a new venture to cross your path and, if it does, try to take advantage of it. Be there for the fun and games.
Taurus (April 21 to May 20) With Saturn hovering opposite your sun sign it might be wise to put some structure in your new interests. Don’t let anyone fool you into thinking you are on easy street forever. The best is yet to come, but not without some work. Look for a new relationship to start soon much to your surprise.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) Jupiter is starting its glide toward Cancer so if you are planning to take advantage of the good Jupiter vibes, the time has arrived. Look for some great opportunities to meet some vibrant people who can help you move forward in both your social life and with business. Get out where the action is in the next few weeks and don’t take “no” for an answer from anyone.
Cancer (June 21 to July 20) Your emotional life should be calming down and allowing you to see your life more clearly. There should be some new energy popping up at home and with the family leaving you in a much happier spot. Just use care when allowing new people to join your social circle. Then you will find a new attraction in your life.
Leo (July 21 to Aug. 20) The positive drama of Mars in Aries is over. So now if you are not careful, the drama will turn negative and you will be caught in a situation of your own making. Watch for some false friends who could deceive you behind your back. Stay alert and you will outsmart any situation that could surround you. Just wait and watch this week.
Virgo (Aug. 21 to Sept. 20) Your philosophy of life could be changing now. Instead of trying to control every happening, you might try letting go and enjoying the good times about to appear in your life. An old friend could return to the fold and bring you plenty of good news. Also look for a new energy gracing your good friend.
Libra (Sept. 21 to Oct. 20) There could be some sudden surprises via Uranus in Aries and it could upset your plans. Best way to handle the upset is just keep on going and don’t look back. The journey is just starting and you are well on your way to a major opportunity. There is no reason you cannot walk away with a prize. Look also for a romance.
Scorpio (Oct. 21 to Nov. 20) Although you are dealing with Saturn, you should be handling it well since you are familiar with challenge of every kind. So proceed with caution and stake your claim on whatever and wherever you wish to settle. There should be no stalling in getting to your goal because you are so well prepared. Look for a new relationship to pop up also.
Sagittarius (Nov. 21 to Dec. 20) You should be looking forward to a fun week as you slide by barriers your so-called pals keep putting in your path. Don’t pay attention, just keep your eye on the prize and move forward. That is what you have done in the past and there is no reason it won’t work this time.
Capricorn (Dec. 21 to Jan. 20) Career goals will take on a new meaning this week as you continue toward a reward for your hard work. The power and control you are interested in will continue to appear as the weeks go by. So there is no reason to slow down with your demands. A new friend could be a big help this week. Don’t forget the thank you.
Aquarius (Jan. 21 to Feb. 20) Your involvement in your latest successful project should bring a smile to your face. You want to continue being the driving force behind a number of groups in your neighborhood. You might call it your responsibility. A new face will cross your path and bring new meaning to your smile.
Pisces (Feb. 20 to March 21) There is no one as unaware of their real talent as you. So with Neptune now in Pisces for a long stay, it is time to recognize your creative self. A golden opportunity is coming your way. And now that the full moon is over it is the perfect time to submit your new works for judging. This is the perfect time to start a new project.
