A solar eclipse peaks as soon as we enter the new year on January 5th, bringing new beginnings around expansive pursuits. This has been a life theme for quite some time, Taurus. The Universe continues to challenge you to broaden yourself through higher learning, travel, vocational training, and whatever else takes you out of your comfort zone. The lunar eclipse on January 21st brings an end to comfort - literally. You may be relocating, settling in to new settings, or leaving behind familiar surroundings to embark upon new journeys.
Flexibility will be necessary throughout the spring. New environments beg the need for you to branch out and meet new people, and there may be a few delays in March. Planned engagements, social activities, conferences and events with friends could be derailed. The same is true if you are participating in group projects, or joining a new association – things may not go as planned. Try not to get discouraged, dear Bull. Setbacks will move forward by April, just in time for your birthday.
And what a birthday it will be! The rest of spring sees you feeling restless and in need of more freedom to pursue personal ambitions. This theme began around the time of your birthday last year and remains in effect in 2019. Change is never easy for you. But you may feel inspired having taken greater leaps of faith. Of course, as you try to identify more autonomy and freedom, be sure not to neglect your commitments to others.
The summer comes with two more eclipses – a solar eclipse on July 2nd and a lunar eclipse on July 16th. The first eclipse will see you entering a new learning phase, whether you find yourself in a classroom setting, or familiarizing yourself in a new community. Writing projects, communication ventures, and other mental platforms will begin fresh, courtesy of the solar eclipse. The lunar eclipse, meanwhile, brings a completion of activity around higher aims. If you have completed a certification, or received a license to practice a new trade, you will now be challenged to apply what you have learned.
With that said, application may face delays mid-July through August, as another round of setbacks creep in. If you are enrolled in a program that sees you commuting far from home, or family demands interrupt educational endeavors, try to be patient. As you attempt to focus on mental pursuits, you may find that domestic arrangements prove distracting. These matters will resolve by September, so remember to stay flexible.
The fall months are better months as activity increases around fun, romance, and creative ventures. Family planning is highlighted too, as well as DIY projects around the house. Of course, this will increase engagements with significant others, and there may be a few relationship snafus come November. Misunderstandings in partnership are highlighted – mattes should resolve by December.
The end of the year comes with a parting gift in the form of a solar eclipse on December 26th, the day after Christmas. This coincides with Jupiter’s ingress of Capricorn, increasing motivation to further your own aims and sense of purpose. Despite a few obstacles, you will land on your feet in 2019.
Happy New Year, Taurus!
