    Taurus the Bull in 2005
    Year of Intensity

    Welcome to the year of intensity! Venus the goddess simmers in Sagittarius and your solar eighth house as the year begins, conjoining with Pluto, lord of the underworld. This powerful union could lead many Bulls to 'go for it' with money, love and the search for something deeper in both meaning and experience. You won't be feeling as though you want to go through the motions. You'll want to lower the horns and charge toward the object of your desire or affections. So, take a risk, but make sure it's calculated. Put your feelings or your money on the line for what you want. Just remember to ask yourself what that really is before you push ahead. This may be year of beginnings or endings for some, and strong feelings or experience will play their part. Amongst these powerful forces, fortune will smile on you, bringing rich reward to some or standing by others if there is adversity to be dealt with for Venus basks in the glow of Jupiter, monarch of the heavens. Work may accelerate your situation, bringing benefit. New contacts bring opportunity. Changes or developments with work may change your love life and life direction.

    Revolutionary Uranus surges through Pisces and your solar eleventh house and many Bulls will find their hopes and wishes, friends and associations will go through dramatic changes or reversals of circumstance in the coming years. As warrior Mars also simmers in Sagittarius squaring Uranus as the year begins, dramatic developments or unexpected turns of the wheel will have a big say in where your life is going. Forces you cannot alter but only accept may come into play for some. This could occur with dramatic speed. Others may simply feel the urgency to go ahead with speed in the pursuit of their desires. For some, such speed will see changes in the constellation of your friends. For others, exciting developments will expand the horizon of your dreams even further.

    2005 Taurus Love and Money Love and Money  Go to Top

    For those married or with partners, love is a powerful force at a crossroads. Some of you will have the opportunity to come closer by sharing endeavours or new projects that deepen your connection and advance your situation. Others may seek pastures new and even begin to go a new or different road from your loved one. This may or may not affect your romantic ties. Developments related to work and health may have a determining influence in these matters. Money also may play its part. There may be decisions you make that bring you closer together or take you further away for the sake of what you want financially. Money matters may have a great influence over where your relationship may go. People with money or financial institutions may be persuaded to support joint endeavours.

    The single Bull is due for powerful encounters. Your passions may be inflamed by opportune meetings where work and health matters or connections are involved. Some of you may be drawn into the circles of the powerful and wealthy. Here you may find romance and also support for your aspirations. Others may simply be drawn to explore the realms of passion. Make sure you find yourself in those depths, rather than losing yourself.

    The end of October marks a powerful turning point for all you Bulls, married or single. Jupiter, lord of the heavens moves into Scorpio and your solar seventh house of partners and close associates. For some, your partner may experience an elevation in status or go through major change, affecting the course of your life together. For others, opportunity can come through new partners, in love, in money or in both. You may make new and powerful connections. People with money and status may play a part. There may be important links with overseas or people of other cultures. Some of you will flourish in this period because of your partner. Some of you will meet a new and important partner. Some of you will go through powerful changes because of changes for your partner. Wealth, education or travel may become a driving force in the relationship between you and another person. Married or single, you may form a close association with someone with knowledge, status, power or a dark sense of humour. Look deeply into how you change because of what other people do.

    2005 Taurus Home and Family Home and Family  Go to Top

    Mid July ushers in an important new cycle as Saturn, measurer of effort, moves into the sign of Leo and your solar fourth house. Some of you may begin to make changes or improvements with regard to your domestic life or your home. There may be renovations or upward movement as you seek to enter into improved conditions. There could be an additional member of the family group, either older or younger. Others may be leaving a home or experiencing a separation from loved ones or family members. Either way, a new cycle of responsibilities will be underway with living conditions. A responsibility for someone close may be visited upon some and you may have the care of a family member. Others may begin a new cycle of independence or more solitary pursuits with regard to home life. In one way or another, emotional and domestic life is in for change, important change that will influence your situation in the long view. Be prepared to review the past and reflect upon its implications and then step up and put on the twin mantles of authority and responsibility for what is to come in the future.

    Be careful of decision-making in the month of December when Jupiter, lord of the heavens squares Saturn in Leo from his new berth in Scorpio. This could be a testing time when it will be better to wait and evaluate a situation, rather than pressing ahead with new action or expansion. The advice of others may mislead or confuse you. If you over-extend or take on too much, you may have cause for regret. Strong responsibilities are here and, if you're patient and manage the push and pull between a holding action and a desire to move forward, you will benefit in time.

    2005 Taurus Work and Health Work and Health  Go to Top

    Giant Jupiter begins the year in Libra and your solar sixth house of work, health and daily routines. Some may be studying with regard to work while others may be uplifted by the influence of new ideas and people. There may be good opportunity for some to go ahead with regard to development of skills, and thus advance your situation considerably. Teachers or people of status or importance may play a part in the development of your work skills. For some, legal matters or studies could enter the domain of your working life. For others, overseas travel may play a part in what you're doing. Whatever the influence, it will be important for you to expand horizons and take advantage of the knowledge or skills brought into your sphere by the presence of other people. This influence continues until the last week of October when Jupiter moves into Scorpio.

    As far as health is concerned, you need to expand your horizons and become literate with healthcare and its practices. Learn what you need to do and why it will benefit you. A health practitioner may play an important role for some of you while others may need to be much more conscious of what can be gained by discussing problems with informed people or experts. Changes in diet and a much better dietary balance will be at the core of the practical action you need to take. Taste and refinement with food could play an important part. This is not a 'nose in the feed bag' year. Be conscious and discerning with what you eat and you may find that any health problems may take a back seat or even begin to solve themselves. Some of you may study healthcare matters while others may involve their working lives much more with other people.

    2005 Taurus Career Matters Career Matters  Go to Top

    Mystic Neptune floats along in his mysterious way in your solar tenth house of career, status and authority. Thus, many of you Bulls will be seeking a 'certain something' with regard to career change or fulfillment, not even necessarily knowing what that something is. For some, your creative or spiritual aspirations will be stronger and clearer. For others, you may feel as if you're struggling or confused with regard to where you want to go. You may even be dealing with confusing or misleading situations. Be patient and allow the clarity you're seeking to come of its own accord. The mists will clear from both from your eyes and the way ahead in time. Revolutionary Uranus is now in Pisces and your solar eleventh house, urging you to examine your hopes and wishes and so make the changes that truly take you forward. New ideas and new companions can lead you into new realms if you embrace the future that truly calls you and awakens your heart and mind. As the year begins, faint harmonies from Venus and Jupiter to mystic Neptune will see some of you come closer to your true goals if you've made clear choices about what's important and are prepared to leave the old behind. Don't hang on to the idea of that what you used to want or think was important. Accept the new!

    2005 Taurus Mercury the MessengerMercury the Messenger  Go to Top

    Mercury moves into retrograde (reverse) motion three times a year for about three weeks each time. This phase heralds a time of confusion and misunderstandings that can affect arrangements, travel, transport, appliances, machinery and communications. The breakdowns that occur are a function of neglect, inattention, simple misunderstandings or component failure. They will often bring to the fore the very contingency we should have planned for and didn't. When the retrograde phase occurs, watch out for such possibilities as well as putting off major decision-making or the signing of crucial documents and agreements. We tend to miss things while Mercury is in reverse motion and then have to come back and do them again. A process of review in the retrograde phase can efficiently show where problems might lie and help us with damage control or the mending of things. Double check arrangements at these times! What you think you've said and what others have understood will often prove to be two different things.

    The messenger's first retrograde cycle is in Aries and your solar twelfth house. It begins on March 20th and ends on April 12th. This will be an ideal time to retreat a little from the outside world. If you don't, you may feel under pressure or even under attack from external forces, especially with words, appliances or vehicles. Take time with spiritual or creative matters. Feed the inner Bull. Don't be in a hurry to race ahead or you'll fall over your own feet! There will be misunderstandings or verbal jousts that come out of the blue. Patience will win the day. Think about what people mean rather than what they say.

    Mercury's second reverse motion cycle comes in Leo and your solar fourth house. Thus, there may be confusion or misunderstanding about matters related to your emotional or domestic life. There may be a state of flux or change here for a time. Discuss matters of this nature in a clear and calm manner. Sort out problems with family members. Someone may have to back down. Don't try to sell or renovate the domicile during this time. Wait a little. This cycle begins on July 23rd and ends on August 16th.

    Mercury's final reverse motion cycle comes in Sagittarius and your solar eighth house. It begins on November 14th and ends on December 4th. You will need to monitor any credit or joint financial arrangements at this time. There may be unexpected developments in this area. You may need to think on your feet or make a quick adjustment. Don't push the limit going into this period. Take a broad view of things rather than getting caught up in the details. Avoid any secret or underhand dealings in love or money. You may end this time by having to discuss something important with partners or close associates.

    2005 Taurus Lady Moon Lady Moon  Go to Top

    Your New Moon comes on May 8th, with a testing aspect from mystic Neptune. For some, there may be difficulties or confusion with professional matters. Dealings with authorities, especially women, may be testing. You may feel disillusioned with where your career is taking you. Take care to avoid questionable behaviour. Don't let your efforts be misrepresented by others. Some of you may set out in a new creative or spiritual direction, one that may mark a point of dramatic change.

    Your Full Moon comes on November 16th while Mars is in reverse motion in your sign. Watch that frustration doesn't rise to the surface if you're not getting what you want or not going where you want to go. You may feel maligned or that others are against you. This is not a time to try to push ahead. Rather, re-evaluate the way you going about things. This could be a time when you see exactly where you are in many different senses. Take it all in and then make change in your action style.

    2005 Taurus Eclipses Eclipses  Go to Top

    Eclipses of both the Sun and the Moon often indicate the end of a cycle or a significant change in the direction or pattern of the affairs governed by the house in which the eclipse falls. Eclipses of the Sun may affect work, direction and relations with people in authority. Eclipses of the Moon may affect matters of home, family and emotions as well as relations with women and children. Both may affect your health.

    A Solar Eclipse comes on April 8th with the New Moon in Aries and your solar twelfth house. There could be unforeseen problems or changes. You may be confronted by an unexpected development, one that changes the picture. Some may go through a crisis of faith. Others may simply feel blocked or unable to go forward. Give health your attention. There may be more to minor problems than it first seems.

    April 24th brings a Lunar Eclipse at the Full Moon in Scorpio and your solar seventh house. There may be a change or an end of cycle with partners or partnership matters. Someone may move out of your closer circle for a time or even for good. There could be money issues at the root of any change. It may also be that an important relationship hits a rocky stretch of the road. Be honest in your dealings. Watch for betrayal. With Sun and Moon in square to Chiron, the wounded healer, this may be a testing time that causes you to question your direction or your relationship with those in authority.

    A Solar Eclipse comes on October 3rd at the New Moon in Libra and your solar sixth house. Watch health matters. Pay attention to what's wrong. A health upset may impede your work process. There may be a change with work routines or co-workers. Something or someone may pass out of your working environment. There may be a change with daily routines, one enforced by changed conditions.

    October 17th brings a Lunar Eclipse at the Full Moon in Aries and your solar twelfth house. There may be changes or endings for you with regard to spiritual concerns or matters of belief. Something may come out of the blue to bring about a change in your emotional or domestic life. Someone's feelings may erupt to reveal something that will change what you think or what you do. Don't push yourself physically at this time. Rest!

    2005 Taurus Special Event Special Events  Go to Top

    Warrior Mars is in reverse motion in your sign this year, a cycle that runs from October 1st until December 10th. This could be a testing time for the Bulls. You may hit a glitch with your plans or activities. It may even seem that you have to go backward for a time in order to go forward again. There may be obstacles on the path. This could bring frustration, so make sure you keep a cool head. Anger will not serve and may even become explosive if it stays bottled up for long. There may be difficulties dealing with others, especially males. There may be issues on which you or others are stubborn or intractable and someone will have to give ground. You may be more prone to accidents or go through a tricky time with health. The best strategy is to slow things down so you don't simply push against things won't give way. Review your action style and make change. Come back to basics with what you value. It would be better not to set new projects or activities in motion at this time. Deal with outstanding matters and finish what you've started. Be mindful that this period is an important one with regard to health and safety and the more preventive action you take, the better you will see it through.

    Chiron the wounded healer moves into Aquarius and your solar tenth house this year. He will be there from February 21st until August 1st and then again from December 6th. This marks an important change with career matters. You may learn or practice a new skill related to your professional standing. You may come to the attention of others for doing something new or different. Health concerns may affect or change your career path. You may deal with those who work at the sharp end of health or spirituality. You may work with an unusual or interesting figure in your professional life.

    Venus the goddess moves into reverse motion from December 24th, conjoining Chiron. Thus there will be changes with relationships or money around professional or vocational matters. There may be a sudden development that changes your career path for a time. There may be unexpected dealings with important professional figures from the past, especially women. Some may find a long cherished professional aspiration finally bears fruit. There may be unusual dealings with professional groups. Your professional life may simply take an unexpected turn. This cycle continues into the New Year.
