2nd Advent Post – Taurus (20 April – 20 May)

This is a post about what will be happening in 2011 when the Sun will be in Taurus (20 April – 20 May). It’s for everyone, not just those folks born under the sign of Taurus.

It’s said in Western Astrology that each Zodiac sign compensates for the weaknesses of the one that comes before it. In the posting on Aires, we talked about how that sign can be a bit too fast, a look-before-you-leap energy. The next sign, Taurus, definitely heals that part. Taurus, the sign of the Bull, is not fast.  Think of the contented bull, munching on the grass of a sunny, flower-filled meadow.  Slow and deliberating, patient and focused, hard-working and steady. That’s our Taurus bull.

On 20 April, 2011, the Sun will enter Taurus and we will be in mid-Spring. The day after that, Venus, the ruler of Taurus, enters Aries.  She’ll be hot and hopping in Aries, so the month of Taurus will be a month of mating and romancing.  And just a few days later, on 23 April, Mercury will station direct, meaning he’ll stop going backwards. All that retrograde energy will slowly calm down. Things that seemed broken will magically fix themselves, or at least the repair folks will call to say it’s all ready. On the 3rd of May the New Moon will be in Taurus, giving us our new monthly cycle in a peaceful, gentle mode. By the 11th of May, Mars will enter Taurus.  Being in Taurus gives Mars the capacity to focus his energies on longer-term goals. He’ll only stay in Taurus about 2 months, so use this time to work toward what you’d like to happen for the rest of the Springtime. There’s not a lot of adaptability in Taurus (called a “fixed” earth sign), so make sure you know just what you want to do, and then go for it.

On the 15th of April, Venus will join Mars in Taurus, and love becomes sensual, unhurried, and uncomplicated. Forget about cocktail parties for a while—take off your shoes and walk on the soft new grass of Spring, smell the flowers, and watch the clouds roll quietly by.  A few days later, on the 17th, we have our Full Moon in Scorpio, the one bit of intensity in our peaceful mid-Spring sign of Taurus. After the major astro-events of Aries, it’ll be nice to rest and relax during Taurus.

    Okay, beginner here… I am confused….do I read the entry for Aries and learn from it for myself or does it only apply to those folks who were born Aries?

      Oh dear, I’m not being clear. The purpose of these 12 advent postings is to give you a hint as to what astrological events will be happening next year. So when I post about Aries, what I mean is that this is what will be happening when the Sun is in Aries next year (from 20 March – 20 April).

      This is for everyone, not just for folks born under the sign of Aries. Of course, if you are born under the sign I’m talking about, know that the astrological events will be close to your Sun, and you will probably feel the effects even more than some other folks. I’ll re-explain in the next posting. Thanx so much for letting me know about the confusion, Louise!

    People have asked about the Christmas card in this post. I designed and created this set of Christmas cards. The large, round ornament is a NASA picture of the planet that rules the sign (this is Venus, because Venus rules Taurus). The smaller ornament on the right is the glyph (letter) that represents the sign in astrological charts (this one is the green glyph that looks like the head of a bull). The smaller ornament on the left is a representation of the major symbol of the sign, usually taken from a map of the constellation. (This one is from an ancient star map of Taurus, with the bull pictured.)
