Sound familiar? Over the past few years, Taurus, you have been considering what risks were worth your comfort and security. You have contemplated a complete overhaul of life as you know it for a new life filled with expansion, travel, new opportunities and purposeful living.
I’m happy to report that you’ve got wings in 2020! A solar eclipse that peaked on December 26th, 2019 set the stage for travel and other adventures that see you traversing foreign territory (literally and figuratively speaking). Furthermore, the planet of disruption (Uranus) will transit your sign over the next seven years, bringing a rebellious streak that will lead to change.
There will be a lunar eclipse on January 10th that encourages you to leave comfort behind, or at least, strategically plan an exit strategy. Whether you are leaving behind a neighborhood where you’ve lived for decades, or venturing into a new professional field that requires new learning and education, something of comfort cannot come with you into this next chapter.
As you embark on deliberate change, you may be questioning where you will land and who you can count on for support. Group affiliations and company settings may feel uneasy if you are saying goodbye or asking for a reassignment to Tibet! Trust that all will unfold as it should, Taurus. Be flexible, in other words.
You may also begin to experience some anxiety by all these changes in effect, anxiety that will return during the fall months. But as we reach the spring, you will begin to feel more certain of plans. This will lead you to assert your own agenda in ways that make people say, “you’ve changed!”
Life moves at a quick pace before whirlwind energy from above takes over in May and June. An extended assessment is underway at this time that sees your mind on your money. You may be considering financial changes and adjustments that would support broader pursuits, like participation in a degree program or an extended culinary training overseas. Consideration for a pay raise is also an interpretation, especially as a result of a performance review and evaluation.
The give and take in relationships feature too as you contemplate your worth. Possessions are included should a property you own undergo an appraisal. What is assessed will not be resolved until July, and this will be compounded as we enter another eclipse season during the summer months.
Three eclipses will peak this summer instead of the standard two. Lunar eclipses on June 5th and July 5th bring completions around commitments and contract agreements that may be linked to the financial assessment unfolding, as well as higher aims that see you furthering yourself. You may be paying off student loans or receive word that you’ve qualified for a grant or scholarship opportunity.
Meanwhile, the potent solar eclipse nestled in between lunar eclipses peaks right at summer solstice on June 21st, bringing a new start around learning, education and communication. Something is confirmed, Taurus, whether it be your enrollment in a new study program, or a final “yes” to salary negotiations that bring an increase.
While eclipse energy unfolds, however, remember that a financial assessment is still underway. Furthermore, there may be some miscommunications around a deal or a contract agreement – confirmations may be delayed. All of this activity will find resolution by mid-July into August, so be patient. Do not get discouraged and continue to have faith.
July and August bring a brief reprieve as eclipse energy settles with forward momentum. You will get a few weeks to adjust; September, comes with another round of choppy weather. The fall season includes delays that will be felt by all of us. For you, dear Bull, inner turmoil ensues.
An intentional turn inward begins right at the Autumn Equinox. You may be working hard on a project behind the scenes or experience severe internal tension due to external changes and circumstances. This is especially true if you find yourself overwhelmed by growing demands on your time and schedule. New endeavors that began during the summer may prove to be more challenging than anticipated.
This will be further compounded in October by delays and setbacks in daily affairs. Colleagues at work may be putting more chores on your plate while significant others require more time and attention. These are examples of the disruption you might experience when it comes to your lifestyle and regular affairs, and it will further contribute to inner angst.
November sees such obstacles lifting. But until then, be patient and gentle with yourself. Should you decide to consult a therapist for inner processing, or simply cling to spiritual practices that bring inner peace, do it. To dig in your heels with stubborn reactions will get you nowhere fast. You will only feel more frustrated as a result.
You will have little control over the blocks you experience at this time, and it will take until the end of 2020 before you begin to feel a reprieve from inner conflict. Give things time to resolve. November through the end of the year will also see your schedule and daily life return to normal, just in time for a final pair of eclipses.
A lunar eclipse on November 30th brings completion on the money front. What was assessed back in May and June will culminate during this lunation. December 14th, meanwhile, comes with a solar eclipse – a new beginning that sees you taking on a new start and routine in your daily life.
Whatever this chapter brings will be a result of risks taken throughout the year, Taurus. Your lifestyle will soon expand with responsibilities that enhance your day-to-day, especially on the career front in 2021. New responsibilities and projects may reflect professional endeavors as you more fully embrace purposeful living in all life areas.
Happy New Year, Taurus!
