The Sun will leave Aries and enter Taurus on April 20, 2017. Out with the dynamic fire energy and in with the grounded, sensual energy. Taurus is ruled by Venus (as is Libra). So plenty of sensuality and romance and luxury with Taurus people. With Libra, it’s more social and has a tendency to be “flighty” or casual. With Taurus is more stable and grounded.
Mars is also in Taurus now. A bit of stubborn energy could emerge with this planetary alignment. Not the worst placement for Mars, but…not one of his most comfortable places to be, either.
There’s also the last quarter square of the moon today. And the Sun in Aries forms a square to the Moon in Capricorn. So today is not an ideal time to start anything new. Actually, from now until the New Moon in Taurus (next week) it’s not a good time to start anything new. Finish up things, finalize things. Start the new things next week.
Venus will Square Saturn April 20-21. Expect some feeling of instability in relationships. We have the planet of love and luxury squaring (that’s generally thought of as a position of tension) the planet of responsibility and life lessons and growing up. You may feel that push and pull around those closest to you.
Now is the time (literally and metaphorically) to plant seeds you want to see grow. Taurus is good energy to do that in. And when Jupiter goes direct in early June…things should start springing to life.
Sun in Taurus, stability please, romantic and sensual…more of that please!!!
